A remarkable absence of features, support or even mention of RAW photography and DNG format in +Google Photos

Suggestion:
– Upload RAW DNG photos on Wi-Fi by default, just like videos.

Google drive backend is already capable of rendering and even editing pictures stored in proprietary camera RAW and DNG, so that's a missed opportunity now that Android smartphones are able to shoot in DNG+JPEG.

  1. If you'd like to store DNGs & other raw files, you still get an additional 15 gigs of free storage, after which storage is super cheap (two bucks a month for 100 gigs; ten for 1000; etc.). I've stored tens of thousands of DNGs in Photos & it works great.

  2. +Kim Østergaard Christiansen​ the common user is an idiot. They (developers,) should cater to many segments of people who are passionate about certain things… IE: use multiple personas that together represent the majority while designing, instead of the watered down average of everyone.

    Different semantics for a similar objective though I suppose.
