What is a dng file?

A DNG, or digital negative, is an open, freely available file type for raw image files.  Developed by Adobe and released in 2004, DNG files were created to be a common file format for digital photography.  As different digital cameras produce unique file extensions, the DNG file simplifies standardization of digital image archiving as well as the exchange of files among professionals.  A DNG file consists of an image raw file and metadata describing the file’s characteristics.  All Adobe programs as well as most major digital camera manufacturers support DNG files.  Once files are in the DNG format, they can be converted to other file types like JPG and TIFF.
