Canon's digital photo processing software is called Digital Photo Professional. The program processes RAW files taken by your Canon DSLR camera. A RAW image is an unprocessed, uncompressed image file that is preferred by professional photographers.

Open Canon's Digital Photo Professional software program.

Open the file you want to convert from RAW to a JPEG or TIFF format. The RAW file will remain the same since the conversion does not overwrite the original file.

Go to the File menu and scroll down to "Convert and save."

Choose a name and save location for the new file.

Choose the photo's new file format.

Click "Save" and you have successfully converted a RAW file to either a TIFF or A JPEG.
