When autoupöoafing pictures from my Google Pixel 6 pro to LR mobile, DNG and JPG are not treated as one picture but uploaded as separate pictures. Also the DNG versions looks unprocessed, i.e. basic adjustments visible in the JPG version are not reflected. This is different from my Huawei P30 or my earlier Samsung Note 20 ultra. In Google Photos app, pictures look ok. Any suggestion?
Uploaded a screenshot with DNG on left, JPG on right.
Thanks for reaching out. I'd love to clarify this for you.
JPEG images are flat and lossy compressed image files pre-cooked by the camera software/image processor on the phone. On the other hand, DNG images contain RAW/unprocessed information about the image and offer a wide range of editing paths.
JPEG is usually an end product of a professional editing session for universal compatibility and faster sharing options. The file is small in size and suitable for digital displays.
RAW images might seem unprocessed or not the best for just viewing. However, being creative and expressing yourself by editing the image remain entirely in your control when editing a RAW/DNG image.
Hi, thanks for your feedback. However, this was not my question. Let me try to better explain: one can have LR to combine the JPG and DNG files as one picture in the catalogue. I am aware that you can disable this in the catalogue preferences. Yet, other than for my Leica, my mirrorless cameras and my previous phoned, this does not work with RAW and JPGs taken with my Pixel 6 Pro - even when RAW are converted to DNG upon import. Hope that clarifies. Guido
