How to Recover Camera Raw File

We've all deleted pictures by mistake, or without realizing we'd want them at some future point. So someone may ask if there's a way of recovering those pictures. The answer is yes and here I'm going to show you how to recover lost pictures, taking raw image format as an example.

What is raw image format?

A camera raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor of either a digital camera, image scanner, or motion picture film scanner. Raw files are named so because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.
