There are a lot of different camera brands around and even more types of RAW image formats which cannot be universally opened or edited.
With Adobe DNG Converter, you have a freeware tool directly from Adobe which supports around 400 different types of image formats from digital cameras, from the low-end of the spectrum to high-end equipment.
It goes without saying that Adobe DNG Converter supports RAW images created by Canon, Nikon, Olympus and Sony but also supports those created by RAW shooting on Samsung, Panasonic, Sigma, Ricoh and Leica cameras.
The technology inside of the Adobe DNG Converter is actually the same that is available from the well-known image editing program called Adobe Lightroom. Unlike Lightroom, DNG Converter is completely free.
It should be noted that "DNG" actually means "Digital Negative Converter" where "Digital Negative" is Adobe's terminology for RAW image.
Usage of the program is not difficult and involves selecting a folder where image files to be converted are located. Users should also select an output folder under "Select location to save converted images".
Output options include custom file names, JPEG preview, lossy compression and 'preserve pixel count'.
Overall, Adobe DNG Converter is a very good program which converts RAW image files to something that can be opened in all image editing suites and applications.
