  • Better DNG parser:
    • support for DefaultCrop Origin/Size tags (add LIBRAW_PROCESSING_USE_DNG_DEFAULT_CROP to raw_processing_options to enable)
    • better parsing for nested DNG tags (use tag from RAW IFD, fallback to IFD0 if no tag in current IFD)
    • DNG PreviewColorspace extracted into dng_levels.preview_colorspace
  • Metadata extraction:
    • Better extraction of camera measured balance (LIBRAW_WBI_Auto and WBI_Measured), this not the same as 'as shot' if some preset/manual tune is used.
    • Extraction of camera custom balances (LIBRAW_WBI_CustomN)
    • Nikon data compression tag extracted into
    • Hasselblad BaseISO and Gain extracted into makernotes.hasselblad
    • Canon multishot params extracted into
  • Color data added/updated/fixed for many cameras
  • Correct data maximum for Fuji X-* cameras
  • Thumbnail processing:
    • JPEG thumbnails: if compiled with libjpeg, color count is extracted into imgdata.thumbnail.tcolors
    • PPM (bitmap) thumbnails: color count is set according to thumbnail IFD tag
    • PPM16 thumbnails: if LIBRAW_PROCESSING_USE_PPM16_THUMBS set in raw_processing_options, than thumbnail will be extracted as is, not converted to 8 bit. thumbnail.tformat is set to LIBRAW_THUMBNAIL_BITMAP16 in this case. Untested, because it is hard to find RAWs with 16-bit bitmaps.
  • Lot of minor bugs fixed


Who create these new camera model support?

Hi There,

I'm a new member and just joined this group today. I follow up the Libraw a while ago and noticed it's based on the "DCRaw" to extend the capability. I have a question and expect someone can answer to me. As I know, DCRaw didn't have an update over two years. But I can see some new Camera Model which not be supported by DCRaw but is available in Libraw 0.19 snapshot version. Can someone tell me who creates those cameras support?

Also, who is the supervisor of this place? If anyone can share more info, it will be great.


Hi Alex,

Hi Alex,
Nice to know you and glad to know you had a team to handle the growing up of Libraw. I have some questions about Libraw team's operation and further update plan. If you don't mind, can you share your E-mail for having more detail discussion? Or you can contact me through "", thx.


How to compile 0.19 snapshots on (and for) my macOS High Sierra

Hello there,

I would like to experiment with the latest 0.19 versions of LibRaw. I already use the latest precompiled 0.18 version but I need the Fuji-X compressed RAW's support.

Could someone of the LibRAW team tell me how to compile the snapshot on my macOS High Sierra?
I have XCode installed, but the source code doesn't even have the script.

Thanks in advance,

make -f Makefile.dist should

make -f Makefile.dist should do the trick

(or longer way:
autoreconf --install
but you need to have autotools installed for autoreconf)
