Adobe brings a BIG photography upgrade to the Pixel 8 phone

There are a few limitations to this, and while it is nothing drastic, you should be mindful of the following –

  1. Camera Matching profiles, a feature that mimics the unique colour customisations implemented on the camera, will not be available to Pixel 8 users. Adobe will address this in a future update, but at the moment, only Apple’s ProRAW format is supported for the aforementioned feature.
  2. Speaking of updates, the Adobe apps on your Pixel 8 device must be running the latest build.

This move by Adobe will open up a world of possibilities for Pixel users who are avid photographers. What this also means is that other developers will surely follow suit, and we will likely see a lot of competitor software also accepting DNG files for direct editing.
