How to open Canon CR2 format photo in Snapseed? Why can’t Snapseed open RAW format file captures from a Canon DSLR camera? We shall discuss these points but before that let’s have a brief introduction about Snapseed.

Snapseed is one of the most used photo editing apps on Android smartphones as it offers vast editing tools. One of the reasons why this is my personal favourite editing app is that it supports RAW format images, allowing you to get more details out of a photo. It means that if you are clicking photos using a smartphone which is capable of shooting in RAW, you can use that RAW format file to edit in Snapseed.

Snapseed supports RAW files but in .DNG format, and the RAW format extension of a Canon DSLR is .CR2. The reason why you are able to open a photo clicked using a smartphone and not a Canon DSLR is because the smartphone shoots in .dng format.
