OpenRAW is a website that addresses the problems associated with the RAW file format for digital cameras. Canon, Nikon, every digital camera maker has their own proprietary file format which can cause headaches for digital camera owners.

When PhotoShop CS2 came out last month, they didn’t have RAW support for my Canon Digital Rebel XT camera. In late May, Adobe upgraded their Camera Raw 3.1 plug-in to support the Rebel XT and a few other cameras.

The point is that a standard file format or spec for RAW would be the best solution for everyone so that photographers can access their images in the future. Adobe has proposed the Digital Negative (DNG) format.

Is anyone using this file format to archive their images?
