Reading/Writing of DNG files




I am trying to read in a bunch of DNG files to do some processing on them. Has anyone done this before? If so, what approach would be best to use?

Hi Man,


are you talking about those files?


Maybe it's easier to use Adobe software or to use an exterrnal (command line) tool to convert DNG to other graphics formats…

Best regards,

using LV2011SP1 + LV2017 (+LV2020 sometimes) on Win10+cRIO

Hello SomeStrangeMan,


Seems like there is no public LabVIEW DNG importer/exporter in existence. The developer approach to create one would be:

  1. Download the DNG Specifications (it's an open but patented format, Adobe published the specs here: The public archival format for digital camera raw data).
  2. Read the 100 pages.
  3. Invest some weeks or a month to implement the importer/exporter. In case you only want to do some small modifications on the files, it could be much less.


Or, use the practical user approach that GerdW already suggested: Find a way around converting and/or processing the files externally.
