Get back deleted or lost RAW images

A RAW file is that image format which contains the minimum layers of data. This type of image format is created by a digital camera or other popular digital imaging devices. When you take a picture, the data enters your camera as a RAW image, which is then processed into the standard JPEG format or any other equivalent image file format. This file does not have any special writing protections over it, therefore it can be removed from the memory card. If you have accidentally deleted some of your favorite pictures that were in RAW format, then don’t worry as these files are easily recoverable. You can restore deleted photos from Samsung camera using Samsung Camera Recovery tool.

In the today’s world, digital cameras are widely used not only by professional photographers but also by many home users who love to take pictures. These digital cameras mainly use two types of file formats, RAW and JPEG. Raw image format is a high resolution photo file that is generated by digital cameras. While the JPEG and JPG image formats are of less quality because they are compressed but RAW images are not at all compressed or processed. Therefore, if your camera is of 8 megapixels, then it will create an 8MB RAW image file, ensuring maximum clarity to the image file.
