Google+ Improves RAW To JPEG Photo Conversion With Support For 70 Cameras

Saikat Basu 27-09-2013

Google+ now gives photographers more latitude with RAW to JPEG conversions by adding RAW support for 70 camera makes. Google+ has always been a favorite destination for photographers with the feature to store full-size photo uploads. This change helps them to upload large-sized RAW images for backup without converting them to JPEG. But Google+ converts them to JPEG for faster image load times when someone wants to view them. Editing the JPEG is also faster.


Google+ does not support RAW post-processing, but the ability to upload RAW file formats and keep them backed up from a cross-section of cameras is a boon in itself. The latest update adds this support for 70+ different digital cameras models. Starting with the popular, Canon’s EOS and Powershot series and similar models from Nikon, the list includes Panasonic, Sony, and Olympus. Check out if the model you own is on the full list given in the announcement post linked to at the bottom. If it’s not, don’t be disappointed as Google says it will be adding more models to the lineup soon.
