Why can't your photos be saved in raw format

[I’m unable to further process my photos after running them through topaz photo because my other editing program doesn’t recognize anything other than raw format.

RAW format is only available in cameras as RAW files contain sensor data. The only option available to save images from RAW files are DNG, TIFF, JPEG and PNG.

And that is similar for all applications that process and demosaic RAW images.

You’d have to process in your other editing program first. Photo AI can take other file types so reversing your workflow could work.
