Stellar Repair for Photo is a trusted DIY photo repair utility. Along with JPEG/JPG and TIFF, the software repairs RAW file formats of all popular brands of cameras including Sony, Nikon, Canon, Olympus etc., and restores them in JPEG format.

If your repaired photos turn out to be small, it could be because:

  • Your image is severely damaged due to which the software extracted its thumbnail or
  • Your image file has a RAW file format like CR2, CRW, NEF, RAF, SR2, RW2 etc. The software repairs and saves camera RAW image files in JPEG. Since JPEG is a compressed format, the image size could be small but the repaired image quality remains the same as the original photo.
