I'm trying to open some TIFF files that I edited and saved as Phototshop RAW files (first time I've done that) and they  open in black and white, in a square format with various parts of the image overlayed over each other, as in the attached screen shot.  I've tried turning the graphics processor in "performance" to off but that didn't help.  Suggestions?

The Photoshop .raw format has nothing to do with raw files. (as in raw files from digital cameras)

It's a special format for transferring images between applications and computer platforms, and is most likely not something you want to use. See  https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/file-formats.html

And you cannot convert tiff files to raw files, so just leave them as tiffs.
