Hello

I have been thinking about it, though I don't have any RAW images or specifications for that. Are there different RAW formats? What are they?

Oh, oh, oh! Dont waste your time. Every manufactor has his own proprietary format. Sometimes there is a doc, other companies keep it secret.

A good info is from openraw.org:

https://www.openraw.org/info/index.html

But it seems that there are no activites at openraw since over 10 years. Perhaps they gave up.

I wish i could have given you another answer. But the situation needs realy a lot of reverse energeering!

I forgot: even the Gimp maintainers refused to implement RAW format min their import/export plugins - and there is nearly everthing: image format for astronomers and medicals (X-Ray pictures). And for the "bach to the 80s" there is an asciiart output plugin.

But there is a standalone program that converts RAW to known image formats: UFRaw.

Short overview at https://expertphotography.com/open-raw-images-gimp-ufraw/#What_Is_UFRaw

Hmm yeah maybe it is simpler to use a dedicated program to convert them if there's so much reverse engineering
