This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.


Raw enables you to upload RAW image files straight from your DSLR to WordPress.
Once the RAW image has been uploaded, Raw will create a JPEG copy and WordPress will then generate all thumbnails.


  • Upload RAW images like DNG, CR2 and NEF to WordPress

  • Works just like if you uploaded a JPEG.

  • Generates a copy for all thumbnail sizes

Raw currently supports DNG, CR2 and NEF out of the box but filters allows you to add support for more RAW image types.

Raw requires the PHP module ImageMagic ( to convert the RAW files to jpeg.

Tested on

Ubuntu 13.10 and WordPress 3.9.2


  1. Upload raw to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


Which RAW image formats does Raw support?
