Google has updated its social network to improve the way it handles RAW images. Changes to its RAW-to-JPEG conversion system, credited to Nik Photography, will mean that the converted images shown on Google+ will now match the RAW file more closely in terms of color and hue, while still keeping the uploaded RAW files untouched.

The update will work with RAW files generated by over 70 different models of camera from Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Sony, and both the Canon ETS and Canon Powershot ranges, with a decent spread of devices in terms of popularity and price covered for each manufacturer.

Google+ has been supporting RAW file photo backups for close to a year, and the updated RAW conversion system comes in the same month that Google added Snapseed-based photo editing tools to photographs uploaded to the service. The new additions could help endear Google+ to photographers used to the services of Flickr, which itself is going through a number of changes.

I'm not sure what this means. The raw file doesn't have a color. The color comes about when the raw file is converted and the result depends on the white balance, the transfer curve, etc.
