Apple earlier this week unveiled its powerful ProAW feature for iOS 14 Pro and Pro Max cameras for iOS 12 Pro and Pro Max cameras. Pro photographer Austin Mann called it a “huge leap forward.” Now Instagram has been able to adopt ProR’s DNG format when uploading photos to the iOS application platform – with several cavities.
Instagram’s Tim Johnson shared the news on Twitter today that ProRA support on the iPhone should start this morning as it rolls out for all users.
Significantly, ProRau images can be around 25MB (but it can go up to 40MB) so the first caveat is that Instagram must compress them when uploading.
Should have managed to share pro photos on Instagram by this morning, it may take some time to promote.

Explaining how this is going a little further, Johnson said in response to a question that the Instagram iOS app has no editing tools and the support is about converting the pre-DNG format to JPG.
He recommends using third-party applications like Darkroom to edit Proro images before uploading them. You can edit ProRA in the default photo application or with other third-party applications like Halid.
