📌 An .ORF file format definition corresponds to the RAW photos captured and shot by an Olympus digital camera. It is typically stored in the Olympus RAW format (ORF) container, which includes corresponding image data exactly as captured by the camera’s optical sensor. .ORF file resources also include temperature, contrast, saturation, color data, as well as metadata describing the specifications of the camera that captured the image. Distinct Olympus proficient cameras use the .ORF format specification, including the XZ-2, E-PL3, E-600, and SP-350 models. Professional and casual photographers would apparently tackle the .ORF format mechanics whether they receive, download or open .ORF file images from other photographers, or own an Olympus digital camera. Considering the fact that .ORF file elements are stored in uncompressed definition, they are usually much larger in size than compressed image graphics, such as .TIFF, .PNG, and .JPEG.
📌 Any of .ORF object entities can be uncovered, opened up, and reviewed by Olympus Workspace, Adobe Photoshop, Corel AfterShot Pro, CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, ACDSee Photo Studio, Olympus Master, Corel PaintShop Pro, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Canvas X Pro, or Microsoft Photos toolkit (with preinstalled Raw Image Extension plugin). It is quite possible to review the .ORF graphical composition on either macOS or Linux workstations or mainframes. After all, you are afforded a chance to setup and tweak Adobe Photoshop Elements applet on Android or iOS gadget to be capable of exploring the target .ORF file item in a flexible and transparent visual representation. Although the file images are larger in size than typical compressed layouts, they store and process more image data, which opens up perspective for capturing higher-quality images and to alter more precisely the saturation, exposure, sharpness, contrast, and white balance of the photo-shots with a selected graphical image editor.
