The NAR file format was developed by Nokia for their mobile phone handsets. These NAR files are generated by a supported Nokia device so as to store one or more digital photos, which are produced by the cameras that are equipped into these Nokia mobile phones. A .nar file also contains metadata details in XML format.These NAR files are usually found in Nokia Lumia mobile phone handsets. This is why these image files are also known as Nokia Lumia Smart Cam files. This file format is a compressed archive that contains digital images and XML metadata details.Nokia Lumia's built-in camera can quickly take up to 10 snapshots and store these in a NAR file. Metadata details in XML format are also generated and stored by Nokia Lumia's Smart Cam software in the .nar file. To open files with the .nar extension, it is best to use Nokia Lumia's embedded Smart Cam software.
