    Does anyone use their Surface 2 to edit photos taken with their Lumia 1020, or other Lumia phone? I'm trying to find an app so I can edit the DNG, or RAW, photo files I've taken. I can select them to open in Fotor, but while trying to open, the app always crashes. So, I assume it can't properly read the DNG files. I guess this RAW format isn't supported in Fotor?

    Any thoughts? Or is there a converter app to convert the DNG file to something else?

    To each his own, but why you shooting RAW or DNG with a cell phone? I didn't know they could shoot those formats.

    They say the best camera you have is the one with you - and if the camera you have with you can shoot a 38MP RAW photo....even better for the photographer in terms of post-processing :D

    I'm in the same boat at the OP....Fotor crashes when trying to open a DNG file. And fhotoroom is as well useless. I think were stuck, Dirigent82

    Looking for something to do this too. I have an 8.1 tablet so can run photoshop elements but its a bit fiddly on a small screen, an app based interface would be good.

    I thought that Adobe lightroom could handle DNG files.

    It can... but is there a "Lightroom app" for Win RT? That would be the question...

    As far as I know, the photo editing apps available don't have DNG support yet. Unless one of them has been updated recently to add it. I currently use a workaround right now by using a free online image converter. I convert to JPEG and can then use whatever photo app I want.

    This is probably similar to what the photo app would do anyway. They would need to convert the DNG to JPEG or whatever file choice you like. I just can't do batch conversions with the online converter.

    There are a couple apps. Not very stable though unless you have a beast. Xps 10 Crashes 100% of the time I open one.

    Windows 8.1 RT really needs a programm like "Paint Shop Pro".

    It's time for MS to update MS Paint with more modern features. Fresh Paint, while cool for experienced artists, does nothing for basic photoshopping. I use pixlr.com, which works a lot better since installing the Spring Update.

    The app Raw Viewer works great with DNG format of Lumia 1020. We can to view the image and to convert for JPEG, TIFF (lossless) and others.
    Raw Viewer app for Windows in the Windows Store
