Convert Raw to DNG - Batch process your DNG conversions and include DNG conversion in a more complex image processing pipeline
Version: 1.6Adobe's Digital Negative Specification, or DNG format, provides an open standard for the storage of raw camera data.
Operating System: Mac OS X
However, since few cameras can store directly into Digital Negative format, if you want to take advantage of DNG, you first need to convert your existing raw files to DNG format using the Adobe DNG Converter.
Mac users can ease their conversion tasks using this Automator action, which lets you batch process your DNG conversions, as well as include DNG conversion in a more complex image processing pipeline.
For photographers who shoot raw, DNG offers several important advantages over proprietary formats: it's open source, so any software or hardware vendor can support it; it won't vanish if any particular company goes out of business; and it includes support for all raw conversion metadata, making for a more efficient, all-in-one, raw format/metadata file.
