Opening ARW files

Hi does anyone know if this program can open the above Sony ARW files please? I am trying to find a simple and effective photo editor but downloaded my pics from the camera saving them in this file format rather than Jpg mainly because I thought it was actually just plain old RAW with a change around in the lettering… now I am stuck not being able to edit as for some reason.

What Sony camera are you taking these pictures with? If it’s listed on this page, then Acorn and Retrobatch should be able to open them:

You can also download a trial of Acorn and test it out:
