  • DNG uses lossless compression, thereby reducing file size 10 to 40 percent compared to RAW files.
  • With DNG files, metadata can be written directly into the file structure, eliminating the need for XMP sidecar files as with RAW files.
  • The User can save photos in the RAW file format, converting these to DNGs in Lightroom and archiving the DNG photos files instead to avoid s obsolescence or compatibility problems in the future and offers additional advantages.
  • DNG format contains a file hash verification tool that can tell if the raw image data remains unchanged and uncorrupted.
