ORF is a RAW image file format that was developed by Olympus. Many professional photographers prefer to extract images in ORF format because the files are not compressed nor color adjusted. The images extracted are hence of higher definition. A couple of disadvantages are each ORF file is huge and only a few picture viewing and editing software support ORF format. Current smart phones, tablet PCs and other portable devices are not compatible with ORF files. Also, ORF files cannot be uploaded online. In this case, you will need to convert the files from ORF format to the standard JPG or PNG formats. As we all know, JPG format is the most popular and one of the most widely used image formats, which is supported by almost all software and media devices. Also, JPG has a relatively smaller file size than ORF.
