What is a DCR file?

A DCR file is a digital photograph saved in the Kodak Digital Camera RAW (DCR) format. It contains uncompressed image data captured by a Kodak digital camera (most likely an SLR). DCR files are commonly used by professional photographers since they store images at a higher quality than compressed image formats.

DCR is a proprietary format developed by Kodak. It stores image data captured by the camera's sensor (or CCD), in an uncompressed state, which allows users to capture photographs at a higher quality and more accurately adjust colors in the image.

NOTE: Some other Kodak image formats include Kodak K25 (.K25), Kodak Photo-Enhancer (.KDC), and Kodak DCS200 Camera Raw (.KC2).

How do I open a DCR file?

You can open DCR images with various image-editing and -viewing applications, including Microsoft Photos (with the Raw Image Extension installed), which is bundled with Windows and Apple Preview, which is bundled with macOS. Other applications that support the camera RAW format are Adobe Photoshop (Windows and macOS), Adobe Photoshop Elements (Windows and macOS), ACD Systems ACDSee (Windows), ACD Systems Canvas (Windows), and Adobe Photoshop Express (Android and iOS).

How do I convert DCR images?

You can convert DCR images to other raster image formats, such as JPEG, PNG, TIF, and GIF with Kodak DCS File Converter (Windows), Apple Preview, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, ACD Systems ACDSee, and ACD Systems Canvas.
