FAQ
Can I edit compressed files? Absolutely
Files compressed in Rawsie are of universal DNG format and require no decompression before editing. Files work in any software supporting DNG like Adobe products, Capture One, Photo Mechanic and most of all photo editing and culling software. Please note compressing Capture One Libraries and files stored in Adobe CC cloud is not yet supported. For Photo Mechanic users full-size preview generation optional setting is available.

Is it cloud-based? No
Rawsie is a desktop software working locally on your machine, your data will not be uploaded anywhere online. You can use Rawsie on two machines, e.g. your office desktop and a travel Macbook.
Who's the team behind Rawsie?
Rawsie is a pro photography outlet of Dotphoton, a Swiss deeptech startup reimagining imagery for biomedical labs, Earth Observation and automotive.
How is it different from DNG Converter? Dramatically
DNG Converter offers its own compression – either lossy or lossless. Lossy compression albeit helps to reduce the file to the size of JPEG, doesn't preserve image quality and introduces some artefacts. Lossless compression, on the other hand, keeps the image quality, but can only reduce the file size by a factor of 2. Rawsie offers the best of the both worlds: preserves the image quality as in lossless compression, but offers an unparalleled up 5:1 file size reduction close to that of JPEG format. Please see our Youtube for more information.
Windows version? Soon
We are hoping to introduce Windows edition in the nearest future. Please register your interest at Windows waiting list to be the first to try it.
