How DxO PureRAW works

Usually, you’re stuck with your own software’s rendition of raw files. If you use Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom, you have to use Adobe’s own demosaicing and raw processing engine, which isn’t the best for detail and noise.

But DxO PureRAW uses the little-known ‘Linear DNG’ format to apply its own demosaicing, noise reduction and lens correction processes to produce Linear DNG file that other programs still see as a raw file, with all the white balance adjustment and dynamic range recovery still intact, but with DxO’s superior raw processing already applied.

The only downside is that DxO PureRAW doesn’t work with all cameras – Fujifilm cameras with X-Trans sensors, for example – and Linear DNG files are nearly three times the size of regular raw files.

It's not remotely technical. You give DxO PureRAW a folder full of raw files, tell it what format you want to use for saving them (it can also output regular JPEGs), tell it where you want them saved and then leave it to get on with it.

DxO PureRAW excels with low-light high-ISO images where other raw processing software struggles. (Image credit: Rod Lawton/Digital Camera World)
