Yes, absolutely. We’re glad you asked! Photonix is photo management software for professionals, and we know this is an area that isn’t catered for with most services like Google Photos, Flickr, 500px and desktop applications such as Picasa, DigiKam and Shotwell.
When Photonix imports your photos, it doesn’t just look at the JPEGs but reads all the main manufacturer’s RAW file formats (.CR2, .NEF, .DNG, .ARW, .RWL and more). If you have a RAW format that we can’t open then please let us know and we’ll try to support it.
Don’t worry about the RAW files showing up as duplicates though — our de-duplication algorithm is usually smart enough to realise multiple files are actually the same photo — just a different "version". We try to combine duplicate photos whether they’re JPEGs produced by the camera, RAW files or edits exported from Lightroom as TIFF.
