These were just captured recently.…Now click on one and go to Metadata, and you will see that they are captured with a Canon DIGITAL REBEL Xti.…It's a 10 megapixel camera, in RAW mode, and so the file sizes are about 8.5 megabytes each.…And you can tell it's a RAW file by the .CR2.…So these are fairly substantial files, not huge, but not JPEGs either.…So if I am viewing these files on a laptop.…Let's say maybe a laptop that's a few years old.…
