raw2dng converts all major raw photo file-formats into Adobe's DNG format. These files maintain full raw quality but can be directly imported into Adobe's Lightroom Mobile. This enables a fully mobile raw workflow directly from camera into Adobe's Lightroom Mobile for Android and syncing through Adobe's Creative Cloud to other devices (e.g., Lightroom desktop).
Start categorizing/editing your pictures on the go, then continue at home. All without losing any quality of your raw files!

- Supports all major raw photo formats(*) and latest DNG-version (v1.4)
- Also supports conversion to JPEG/TIFF including full metadata
- Supports wifi-import on wifi-enabled Sony cameras
- no USB cable required to get raws into Lightroom
- Also supports copying raws without conversion
- backup your raws on your phone over wifi
- Is especially optimised for Sony's A7 (ILCE-7) camera
- supports CA and lens-correction profiles that Sony embeds in the raw-files
- Supports (optional) application of camera profile files (dcp-format)
- Can read raw files directly from a connected camera if mounted as USB mass storage

Please note that writing to external storage does not work currently!

(*) Many raw files from Fuji-cameras do not convert correctly due to their complex sensor mosaic pattern.

I suppose if you have no other way to convert your raw files this app would be a little better than nothing. But I need something to both view my Sony raw files on my Loveno pad, and to delete the ones I don't need taking up space as well. On the viewing part, this app does give you two options, which I am calling tiny, and small. The tiny setting only shows that you indeed have some photos in a folder. The next size up is rather small, but it would be good enough for me at least to see my photos well enought to be able to delete thoe files I don't need to keep. But, guess what? There is no "delete" option! Or none that I could find anyway. So I am chalking this one up to a good idea that needs some serious development. The developers need to add some basic viewing features and a couple of other things that anyone who is trying to manage their photos to even the most elementary degree is always going to need.

The dng files it converted tend to have a green-ish overcast. The exposure is often 1~2EV lower than the actual raw image. When I open the dng files in Snapseed, the resolution is very low (looks like the preview res). But the exported file has the proper resolution. I really appreciate what this app offers. But it is hard for me to continue using it since all my dng files converted from CR2 have weird color issues. Note: I open all dng files in Snapseed.

ive been using this app for a couple of years now to convert my Olympus .ORF raw files to .DNG files so I can develop them in Snapseed (which only reads DNG's) on the go. This software has worked flawlessly in that application for me. I really like the option to automatically overwrite with the output .dng files, saving me a step. If you shoot with a real camera, but want to develop raw on your mobile device, this is an essential part if the workflow.

The app works as intended, but it does have some performance issues when converting a batch of RAW files into DNG. You just have to go throught the missed ones, check them, and convert. I mainly use this to get full resolution RAW photos into snapseed for editing. Hopefully an update can fix the performance issue.

I'm having some issues with nikon raw files, I appear to be able to convert NEFs from my d7500 just fine, but when converting my raws from a z6 mk ii I get very strange streaks of color (the image does not resemble the actual photograph, it is closer to abstract art) kinda remeniscent of a histogram. I assume this is due to nikon's raw format changing on the new cameras, but I would love to figure out if this is something I'm doing wrong!

Cyr. P. Nov 4, 2018     

It such a great idea, so far it is the only app for android that can convert photos from several types of raw image into dng format. But it seems it always converting my raw DNG, CR2 photos into a lower resolution and downgrading its quality(from 18 MP to just 1MP!). You said that this app can compress these types of image up to 60 percent of its original size without loosing quality. Can you please fix this, before I give you a 5 stars.

Says to connect to Sony using "Send to Computer"... however my A7 gives the error message that the "information of the computer where the data is to be saved is not set to the device" and suggests connecting via USB to set it... which you can't do. Hoping for a workaround.

worst experience..when I installed for the first time....after repeated endeavours....all the .cr2 raw files got converted to .dng files but those files was totally pink in color. That was very much disappointing and thus I uninstalled the app. I would like to listen to any feedback.

I liked this app, it's just what I needed but I recently installed an SD card and this app won't work from images on the card it says no permissions, try again. Well I have granted all permissions to the app in settings but it still doesn't work. So it's not really any use anymore. Unless I'm doing something wrong. Help please.

I know there's lots of reviews here who seemingly want the app to do everything, although I think it would be cool if this app would show up in the "Import Photos" selection menu when I connect a MTP Camera over USB. Not quite sure what Intent needs to be supported for that. Right now I have to use Google Photos for that then convert my ARWs to DNG using this app.

Best app that has helped convert otherwise unknown formats into DNG format for Snapseed to pickup. The conversion picks file randomly and concerts thereby disrupting the 'order by' time the picture was taken view in a gallery. An option to force convert one file at a time in the order that it was shot would be great addition.

Tob. M. Jan 4, 2021     

Was always a good helper but suddenly it loses the correct time the photo was shot and takes the time it got converted for the resulting dng instead which breaks my workflows. edit: now it can't access my SD card anymore and gives me "No write permissions for output device. please try again and grant permissions". But I cannot find how to change that.

Can't rate this high enough! As a complete newby to digital photography editing I was bugged that my raw images from the camera couldn't be directly imported into Snapseed or Lightroom mobile. Stumbled into this, read the instructions, and viola!! Awesome developer.

F. A. Jul 24, 2020     

I installed this app as I read an article that said it recognized CR3 files. False!!!!! You see them in the program's file manager, but it doesn't even allow you to select them. What a pity.

Snapseed was reading my raw files on my D610, then I upgraded to the Z6. Snapseed doesn't read those raw files, so I needed a converter to DNG, however raw2dng converts the file, but makes it really small amd puts weird false colors in the image. Unusable, please fix. I would pay for an app to do this...

Par. N. Feb 10, 2019     

I stand corrected. When viewing converted images in the gallery they appear low resolution, but opening then up in Snapseed allows you to view edit the full resolution image. really easy to use convertor, good job developers

Went on a once in a lifetime vacation, spent upwards of 4,500$ in Olympus equipment, wanted the highest qualty photos so decided to shoot raw. When I got back I found the software I had couldnt use Olympuses ORF raw files. After a couple days research I found raw2dng, downloaded the app, clicked all files, hit convert to dng, and about an hour later got a message saying failed to convert..... Every SINGLE image has been corrupted, all files now show 10kb file size. GIVE ME BACK MY DAMN PHOTOS

Pra. D. Apr 23, 2020     

Always gives error.. 'no write permissions for output device'. Haven't seen such a sick app. I have all the permissions granted but still your app always gives error, while converting and creating new folder.

Jua. L. Feb 18, 2019     

Worked flawlessly! Does what it's supposed to and fast. I used it to convert my Nikon .NEF files to .DNG so that i could work with them in Snapseed. I had NO issue with imagine quality or data and Snapseed still recognized the photos as RAW

It's a great app but recently the output in jpg is a lot darker than the original raw file. Is there a setting that I can change? If not please fix!

Cay. H. Feb 21, 2019     

An awesome app to convert your RAW files to work in Snapseed and other apps....Just a question is their support for the WiFi function to work on Olympus OMD cameras? I'm having trouble connecting my camera to the app as it will be a whole lot more convenient?

Sou. C. Nov 16, 2018     

A great App to help mobile photo editing but one big glitch is there otherwise would have rated it 5 star. Kindly fix the problem of heavy grain production during Raw to DNG conversion of photos. Otherwise great app

Nikon Z50 owners! I download all my raw files onto my note 10 from my Nikon z50 when I use a lens adapted to the ftz adapter. I use this app to switch all my raw files over to dng when I download them to my iPad. Because Apple won't download files from the ftz adapter. All native z lenses will download to my iPad just fine. Yes the color looks different from the original image when converted to dng on my iPad until I import them to lightroom and then go back to the color. It works great

Kri. S. Jul 24, 2020     

Awesome app. I'm using this almost for an year. Sometimes it's connecting is losing. But overall great experience. I can Download RAW files from my cam directly to phone and edit that with LR.

Dil. T. Feb 21, 2021     

No issues so far, been using it on my tablet and Chrome OS. Slow at conversion at times , but very easy to use, pretty straight-forward. 👌🏻

Had. K. Apr 19, 2019     

Helps to work with my Sony raw files on my Samsung thanks man for a great work. I just wish app can remember starting folder right now it's always start in root folder :( And another nice thinks, bigger preview in file list.

I have a Canon, and I wanted it to convert .cr2 to .dng. Well SD card didn't work, permission issue. So I copied the .cr2 to my main phone storage. Converted on cr2 to dng and it's all pink. Even tried cr2 to jpg is the same pink

Law. D. Jan 10, 2022     

No Write Permissions? I have set all the correct permissions yet still the app doesn't work. Reading the comments I'm not the only one with this issue. Where are the Devs to sort this out?

How. C. May 20, 2022     

Only used once up to now but seems to work. It seems refreshing to download an app that does what it supposed to!

Yes. O. Feb 12, 2019     

used it for almost a year now and have had no problems, it works great. although when converting to jpeg there is a considerable drop I'm quality and detail especially in the darks of an image
