Working with an unsupported Raw Format

If you are trying to open an image from a camera that is not officially supported by Luminar, the best workaround is to convert the images to a DNG file.  Shooting DNG may be possible in-camera.  Additionally, you can install the free DNG Converter from Adobe.

Luminar fully supports DNG files.  This includes DNG files created by a camera. You can also use files created with the DNG Converter utility from a raw format.
