CR2 is a graphic file format developed by the manufacturer of camcorders and cameras Canon. This means that all images made by the equipment of this manufacturer are saved by default in CR2 format (short name from Canon Raw Image File). One of the most attractive properties of images of the specified format is their high quality, even if the file is being edited (color balance, contrast, brightness change). Data for the CR2 format image is obtained directly from the matrix. Among the main drawbacks of the format are the large file size, as well as poor compatibility with other software products.
EMF is a vector graphics file for Windows operating system applications. Most image editing applications recognize it. The format was developed in 2007 by Microsoft. This is an integral part of Windows and a version of the original Windows Metafile Format (WMF), extended and expanded. It only supports 16-bit data. Image color data is stored in RGB format. There is no support for CMYK data. EMF (i.e. Enhanced Windows Metafile) can be used as a graphical language for printer drivers. It is used, in particular, to store collections of graphic images of Microsoft Clip Gallery. WMF also found application when it is necessary to transfer information through the clipboard (clipboard). From the Windows operating system, writing and reading to a file of this format can be carried out quickly and without problems. An EMF file is opened using a variety of utilities. For this, for example, IrfanView, CorelDRAW, Inkscape and GIMP are suitable. EMF files, like WMF, have a list of entries. Each of them is a specific team for drawing. Arguments that were 16-bit in WMF became 32-bit in EMF. EMF has features that introduce new arguments.
