What is an .DNG file?

The dng file extension is associated with the universal Digital Negative RAW file format developed by Adobe.

It is non-proprietary and public defined format for camera RAW files that can be used by hardware and software developers for a more flexible RAW processing and archiving workflow. End users can use Digital Negative (DNG) as an intermediate format for storing digital images.

Advantages of Adobe Digital Negative:

  • Self-Contained - DNG metadata is publicly documented and digital processing software do not need camera-specific knowledge to process DNG images created by digital camera.
  • Archival - DNG files will be readable by software in the distant future.
  • TIFF compatible - Digital Negative format is an extension of TIFF 6.0 picture image format (compatible with TIFF-EP standard).

A dng file extension is related to the Digital Negative (DNG) RAW digital image file format developed by the Adobe Corporation. It is used to store digital RAW pictures captured by digital cameras and DSLRs (Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras).

How to open:

A wide variety of image editors and viewers can work with the DNG format.

How to convert:

Usually DNG format can be exported to another format in photo editors.
