Adobe DNG Converter

A small but powerful Mac OS X application that enables you to quickly convert camera raw image files to the more versatile Digital Negative (DNG) format.
Digital Negative (DNG) is a file format used to archive raw image formats created by various digital cameras. Since the raw formats are not supported by most image editing solutions, using the DNG format is highly advisable, both for processing and archiving purposes.

Adobe DNG Converter is a Mac app that can help you convert the raw files to the DNG format, hence eliminating the problem of not having an open standard for all cameras models.

Offers support for a large collection of camera models

The application is able to process raw content generated by Casio, Nokia, Pentax, Ricoh, Samsung, Hasselblad, DJI, and Leica digital cameras. However, keep in mind that not all models are supported: you can access the Adobe website to view a complete list of supported devices.

The conversion procedure is made simple by a compact and intuitive user interface

Finding your way around Adobe DNG Converter is fairly easy: in the main window you must specify the source folder for the raw camera content, the output destination, set up a renaming rule, and the output file extension (.dng or .DNG).

In addition, the Preferences area displays technical details about the DNG files that will be generated: the Camera Raw compatibility level (dictates if the file can be opened by specific Adobe Photoshop version), the JPEG preview size, if the image is compressed using the lossy technology, or if the original file is embedded.

Of course, via the Adobe DNG Converter Preferences window you can adjust the conversion settings to make sure they match your own needs. Moreover, you can use the app to extract the raw data from Digital Negatives that have the originals embedded.

Streamlined DNG converter for your camera raw files

Adobe DNG Converter offers you the possibility to convert the raw images created by your digital camera to a file format that is compatible with, and can be processed by various photo editors. The app is able to work with a large number of camera models and the intuitive user interface should not raise problems even to most inexperienced operators.
