How Do I Recover CR2, CRW, NEF, RAW Photos from Camera? [Complete Guide]

Unintentionally, I formatted a 2GB SD card that included files from my Canon 1Ds Mk II. As I was aware that many programs might be used to recover the files from the card, I refrained from becoming anxious even after it had been reformatted. Does anyone know of a recovery program I may use to get my CRD2 photos back?

It makes no difference if you are unsure of the cause of CR2's failure to launch on your computer, camera, or PhotoShop. You can resolve this problem and successfully open CR2 photos by implementing the solutions listed below, one at a time:

You'll need a specialized image repair tool to fix CR2 photo not opening. It does not function to change the image file extension or convert photos to another format. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can aid in this situation thanks to its CR2 photo recovery feature. Your image files are recovered and repaired to their original quality.

Check out what you can do with it:

Step 1. Start the EaseUS data recovery program. Click "Scan" after selecting the hard drive that contains the corrupt photo files.

Step 2. Click "Pictures" to locate your damaged photos, which may be in various file types, including JPEG, JPG, PNG, BMP, and more. Instead, click "Search files or folders" in the top right corner to search for files.

Step 3. To preview and fix a damaged image, double-click on it. After that, click "Recover" to store the photographs somewhere else.

Be aware that you need to save the fixed CR2 photographs to another secure location if your photos wouldn't open on your camera SD card. The same is true for those on your PC.

Additionally, you can open CR2 with the appropriate programs because using the incorrect application to open a CR2 photo file occasionally causes your inability to open CR2 raw photographs.

What you should do is:

Step 1. Use a CR2-compatible image reader or editor like:

  • A utility for viewing Canon EOS files and digital photos
  • IPhoto, Aperture, IPhoto Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, etc.

Step 2. The CR2 Raw photos are exported to a computer in step two.

Step 3. Launch the image, photo viewer, or editor to open CR2 files.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
