Best DNG RAW Photo Editor on Android Smartphone

Mobile Phone cameras have come a long way now. Phones like Google Pixel uses computational photography and HDR algorithms to produce stunning results just by a single click. However, Pro photographers who love to have the best dynamic range and image quality, still shoots DNG raw and edit them using software to get the best output possible.

On Android Play Store, there are a lot of Photo Editing Apps available. However, most of them do not support DNG raw editing.

The best DNG raw editor currently available on Android is without any doubt Adobe Lightroom Mobile. Even though you need monthly paid subscription to use advanced editing features like Healing, Graduated Filters etc, you can import and do basic edits on DNG files even without the need for a paid subscription.

Google’s own Snapseed too support DNG raw editing. However, Google hasn’t cared to update this incredibly powerful app with more features. DNG editing is not that great on Snapseed and is very basic. It doesn’t have Noise Reduction or Sharpening options available which are often necessary when you retouch a DNG file.

Adobe Lightroom Mobile also has a build in Pro Camera app which lets you shoot dng raw and let you change Shutterspeed, ISO, White Balance etc. It’s Free to use and doesn’t need subscription.

Adobe Lightroom Mobile is free to download from Playstore. After installing the app, just login with your Adobe ID or create one. You are now good to go. Check out the LrMobile playstore link here.
