Compress your raw photos by up to 80% preserving full raw quality
Meet Dotphoton Raw. The first  macOS app to change the way you think about raw photography:
Raw quality, JPEG size.
Universal, forever
Universal
Not another proprietary raw format. Compressed images are converted into DNG, the format trusted by Leica, Sony, Apple, Pentax, Ricoh and other leading brands.
Ready to use
Dotphoton-compressed images don't require decompression and are compatible with main photo editing software, i.e. Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop, Capture One, DxO Mark, Photo Mechanic etc.
Private
Dotphoton doesn't upload images
anywhere online and doesn't have access to your information apart from camera model, which allows us to effectively control compression quality. The app works offline.
Forever
Since Dotphoton Raw output raw images are regular DNG, you can use them at anytime and store them no matter what.
Printable
Just as your usual raws, Dotphoton-compressed images can be later converted to any print format. Image resolution after compressions stays intact.
We share your love for quality. Compare compressed images by our guest artists

Wait, but is this even real? Oh, yes! Dotphoton Raw is based on quantum scientific studies. You know, Schrödinger's cat.
