This is a format that is used to store RAW photos on Sony digital cameras without the use of compression. It contains the complete set of information that was captured by the camera's sensors through the lens when shooting with minimum adjustments. The opportunities for post-editing depend on the camera model and lens. ARW files can be created and edited in the ArtStudio Image software.
This format is used for storing several types of bitmaps, including animations. MNG allows you to store lossy and lossless images with compression. This format provides you with more options than GIF for saving animated files while keeping the original image size.
