Can't open, view, or edit RAW images on a computer

    We recommend using Imaging Edge software to view or enhance RAW images transferred from your camera to a computer. You can develop and save your photos to common file formats, like JPEG and TIFF, with this program.

    Additionally, there are other methods to view and edit RAW files on your computer:

    • For compatibility with Adobe® Photoshop® or Lightroom® software, refer to the Cameras supported by Camera Raw   article, which includes information on required versions and plug-ins.
    • For computers with Microsoft® Windows® operating systems, a RAW extension may be available that will allow RAW photos to open and display in Windows Explorer or Windows Photo Gallery in the same way as JPEG files. Visit the Microsoft Store   for more information.

    Note: For Adobe, Microsoft, or any other non-Sony applications, compatibility is not guaranteed.
