Editing RAW images in Photoshop

Post by Floyd » Sat May 26, 2018 10:13 am

Every camera manufacturer has a different data format for RAW images. This information is proprietary and not public. So you may be able to edit a RAW image for Canon but not for Nikon or something else. Adobe has created a Digital Negative conversion tool called DNG. It is a free download at: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/digital-negative.html



In addition to the Digital Negative Specification, Adobe provides the free Adobe DNG Converter (Windows | Mac OS), which easily translates raw files from many of today's popular cameras. Software developers and manufacturers can download the complete DNG Specification (PDF, 486k). DNG is supported by the following software versions: Photoshop CS to Photoshop CC, Photoshop Elements 3 to Photoshop Elements 12, and all versions of Lightroom.

Of course, you can get the latest versions of Photoshop and Lightroom (in the cloud, not on your own PC) by choosing Adobe's Photographer Plan for just $10 per month.
