The functionality supports only JPEG renditions. It is supported on Windows 64 Bit, Mac OS, and RHEL 7.x.

To enable Camera Raw support in Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) Assets, follow these steps to re-create the configuration in the Sample DAM Update Asset With Camera RAW and DNG Handling Step.

  1. Download the Camera Raw package version 1.3.16 from the Package Share.

  2. Access http://[AEM server]:[Port]/workflow. Open the DAM Update Asset workflow.

  3. Open the Process Thumbnails step.

  4. Provide the following configuration in the Thumbnails tab:

    • Thumbnails: 140:100:false, 48:48:false, 319:319:false
    • Skip Mime Types: skip:image/dng, skip:image/x-raw-(.*)
  5. In the Web Enabled Image tab, specify the following:

    • Skip List: audio/mpeg, video/(.*), image/dng, image/x-raw-(.*)
  6. From SideKick, add the Camera Raw/DNG Handler step below the Thumbnail creation step.

  7. In the Camera Raw/DNG Handler step, provide the following configuration in  the Arguments tab:

    Mime Types: image/dng, image/x-raw-(.*)


    • DAM_Raw_Converter ${directory}/${filename} ${directory} cq5dam.web.1280.1280.jpeg 1280 1280
    • DAM_Raw_Converter ${directory}/${filename} ${directory} cq5dam.thumbnail.319.319.jpeg 319 319
    • DAM_Raw_Converter ${directory}/${filename} ${directory} cq5dam.thumbnail.140.100.jpeg 140 100
    • DAM_Raw_Converter ${directory}/${filename} ${directory} cq5dam.thumbnail.48.48.jpeg 48 48
  8. Click Save.

    You can now import camera raw files into AEM Assets.


    Linux, Windows, and Mac (with 64-bit JVM) support the Camera Raw package.

    After you install the Camera RAW package and configure the required workflow, Image Adjust option appears in the list of panes.


    Click Image Adjust from the list and use the options in the Image Adjust pane to make lightweight edits to your image.


After saving the edits to a Camera Raw image, a new rendition AdjustedPreview.jpg is generated for the image. For other image types except Camera Raw, the changes are reflected in all the renditions.


The Camera Raw library has limitations around the total pixels it can process at a time. Currently, it can process a maximum of 1073741824 (1024 x 1024 x 1024) pixels.
