Okay that's absolutely huge for RAW mobile photography

I wonder how well and fully implemented the DNG spec is on the reader. Hopefully it's not differing much or at all from Adobe reference SDK.
I say that because there's a few key aspects crucial for color calibration and accuracy missing from the regular Android DNGCreator class introduced in Lollipop.

RAW photo editing comes to Snapseed on Android

Today is a big day for Snapseed users! Snapseed 2.1 brings RAW photo editing to your Android device.

Traditionally, shooting and editing RAW photos has been the domain of DSLR cameras and desktop software. But with the RAW capabilities that were added to Android 5 last year, RAW is now becoming important for mobile photography, too.

Snapseed now allows you to edit those RAW photos in the DNG file format right on your mobile device. You can also edit DNGs that were shot on cameras or converted from other RAW formats.

A photo in RAW format preserves all of the original data that was captured by the camera. This allows you to perform edits – such as recovering blown-out highlights – that are impossible with the more commonly used JPEG format. Check out the photos for an example of the details that RAW editing with Snapseed 2.1 can bring out in an image.

In addition to RAW editing, we have made some slight polishes throughout the app to make it easier to navigate, so give it a try!

  1. Well, since every raw file needs to be edited by definition (at least for contrast, sharpening and some noise reduction), this feature seems to be very relevant and the quantity of images irrelevant, +François Simond​. Of course, if you want to edit a photo here and there it's ok but normally a person that shoots raw is serious about photos and edits every single one of them. Hence, if these features are missing I'm not sure what the target group for the snapseed raw support is. Anyway, that said, I like snapseed very much and like the direction in which this app and mobile photography in general (e.g raw support, manual controls) are heading.
