The files that have .CR2 extension are the raw camera images created by Canon digital cameras. The CR2 files store uncompressed image data, and it is exactly what it was captured like by the camera. These images can be adjusted for white balance and exposure using various image-editing software programs, including the software that comes along with Canon digital camera purchases. CR2 files are saved in a format that is based on the TIFF specification. Some earlier versions of Canon digital cameras also use the .CRW format, which is based on the Camera Image File Format (CIFF).
