Files that contain the .raw file extension contain 24-bit RGB graphics files. These image files are uncompressed files that contain raw image data.
RAW files are commonly created by digital cameras, allowing the user to edit the image once they transfer the file from the camera to their PC. The file that is migrated to the PC contains the image exactly as it was captured by the camera, without loss of quality and without compression.
The .raw file extension may also be given to RAW audio files. These files contain unprocessed audio files that can be modified and edited on a computer.
