Information about ARW and PNG file formats
|Full name||Sony Alpha Raw||PNG - Portable Network Graphics|
|MIME type||image/arw, image/x-sony-arw||image/png|
|Developed by||Sony||PNG Development Group|
|Type of format||Image File||lossless bitmap image format|
|Description||The Sony Alpha RAW image format is used by Sony digital cameras to store images, and captures the raw, uncompressed data for images as captured by the camera's sensors. Sony entered the photo market with its first camera in 1981. It continued to develop various models (on average one new camera model each year) - including product lines such as the Cyber-shot, the 'О±' series and the HandyCam - progressively helping to improve the technology around cameras and photography in general.||Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression. PNG was created as an improved, non-patented replacement for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), and is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet. PNG itself does not support animation at all. MNG is an extension to PNG that does; it was designed by members of the PNG Group.|
|Technical details||ARW files, often referred to as Sony Alpha RAW files, are images digitally captured by Sony cameras and stored in a proprietary RAW uncompressed file. The ARW format is based on the TIFF specification and is a type of RAW (Raw image format) file, containing the metadata that accurately showcases the conditions the shot was captured under. ARW files contain raw, uncompressed image data as captured by the camera's sensors.||PNG supports palette-based images (with palettes of 24-bit RGB or 32-bit RGBA colors), grayscale images (with or without alpha channel), and full-color non-palette-based RGB[A] images (with or without alpha channel). PNG was designed for transferring images on the Internet, not for professional-quality print graphics, and therefore does not support non-RGB color spaces such as CMYK.|
