Google Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro get Adobe RAW support for Lightroom, Photoshop

Google’s Pixel 8 series was launched earlier this year in October at the company’s Made by Google 2023 event. The Pixel 8 and 8 Pro already launch with the ability to shoot RAW photos. Adobe RAW compatibility is now included in Google’s Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, improving the photographic experience. Compared to JPEG, RAW image files are richer in data, giving users more editing options. The new Adobe RAW support will be helpful for heavy image editing.

A support pageFirst spotted It has been confirmed by 9to5Google that Adobe’s Lightroom and Photoshop apps now recognize Pixel 8 RAW files in the digital negative image (DNG) format. This compatibility covers files for the base Pixel 8’s primary sensor, wide-angle lens, and front camera. Meanwhile, RAW support for photos taken with the telephoto lens is also available for the Pixel 8 Pro.
