SRW is a proprietary format for RAW photos shot with some models of digital Samsung cameras. Shooting in RAW mode is usually preferred by professional photographers because it allows them to take advantage of all the info captured by the camera's sensor, and to edit the photograph in their desired way during post-processing. However, for amateurs or for photographers who are not familiar with using advanced image editing software, SRW files might prove difficult to handle. Converting to a more accessible format, such as JPEG, TIFF or PNG, provides easier access and smaller file size.
BPG is a new and promising image format, which currently provides the most advanced technology in image compression. Released in 2014 by software developer Fabrice Bellard, the BPG format has been shown to include the best quality/size ratio, when compared to other popular formats such as JPG or PNG. The number of image viewers that can open BPG files is currently limited, but is expected to grow in the near future. For easier access, conversion can be done to and from the BPG format.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert SRWs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
Start reaConverter and load all the .srw files you intend to convert into .bpg because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select SRWs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .bpg files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the BPG as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
