RAW photos, 80% lighter with the same quality and resolution
Meet Dotphoton Raw. The first  macOS app to compress raw images by up to 80% preserving full raw quality and resolution:
Raw quality, JPEG size

We know you have to decide whether to keep or toss your raw sources for most of your shoots. Not anymore, now you can keep all your artwork with you.
Share your editable RAW files with clients, upload for editing in a breeze like if you were sharing regular JPEGs.
Backup your most important work on just one hard drive and cut your storage costs by 5 times without losing on quality.
Travelling to that Mongolian desert or Iceland glaciers? Make room for more important stuff in your backpack instead of external hard drives.
Universal, forever
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.
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.
Since Dotphoton Raw output raw images are regular DNG, you can use them at anytime and store them no matter what.
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

"Dotphoton is genuinely about to break most of the issues raw files present" —
"There hasn't been much evolution in terms of raw file format since digital cameras have been around. However, one company named Dotphoton is about to change it all!...
Files can be compressed to a third or a fifth of their original size! Is It truly lossless? It definitely feels like there is no difference...
Dotphoton Raw is so far the best thing I've discovered this year. I haven't been excited about an app, solution, or even product in general for quite a while.
The result is actually very far from what you've ever seen."
Wait, but is this even real? Oh, yes! Dotphoton Raw is based on quantum scientific studies. You know, Schrödinger's cat and all that stuff
