In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your K25 file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


The K25 suffix indicates raw image data generated by the digital Kodak DC25 camera.

The K25 files contain the unprocessed or minimally edited raw data of the image sensor. Although these RAW (raw) data are larger than the JPEG files stored by the device, they are more versatile.

These sometimes called "digital negative" raw data are excellent for post-processing such as the adjustment of the colors, correction of the exposure, suitable for sharpening or noise filter. They are indispensable for professional work or things like astrophotography.

In order to convert them into an RGB image format that can be commonly used, the data must be "developed". This means that processing steps such as interpolation and exposure as well as converting to a format such as PNG, PSD, TIFF or JPEG must be performed.

Most RAW files also contain metadata with information about the image and the recording conditions, in part also in the EXIF or IPTC standard.

How to open a K25 file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the K25 file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a K25 file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support K25 files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a K25 file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all K25 files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with K25 there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the K25 file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the K25 file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
