Python Interface for the Adobe's DNG Converter

Project description


Python Interface for the Adobe's DNG Converter.

Utilizing parallel processing, PyDNGConverter can convert RAW images to DNG up to ~60% faster than simply utilizing Adobe's DNG Converter.


pip install -U pydngconverter

To utilize PyDNGConverter's Exif thumbnail extraction (as opposed to Adobe DNG Converters'), the following dependencies are required:

Then specify JPEGPreview.EXTRACT for DNGConverters jpeg_preview parameter.

Alternatively, you can utilize Adobe DNG Converters' thumbnail extraction via:

  • JPEGPreview.MEDIUM
  • JPEGPreview.FULL

Or, disable thumbnails via:

  • JPEGPreview.NONE


import asyncio
from pydngconverter import DNGConverter, flags

async def main():
    # Create converter instance.
    pydng = DNGConverter('/my/raw/files/',
    # Convert all
    return await pydng.convert()

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()
