What is a ras file?

A RAS file is a type of raster image file developed and used by Sun Microsystems computers. RAS files can support 1 to 32 bits per pixel, and may be compressed or uncompressed; however, it is more common to encounter uncompressed RAS files, which maintain a much larger file size. RAS files are supported by many commonly-used image viewing software programs, such as Corel PaintShop Pro (PSP) and GIMP. While originally created by and for the UNIX platform, RAS files are now supported across all major operating systems, including Windows, Mac, and Linux.  Examples of other, more common image formats include JPG and PNG.
