A list over file formats previewed in the Photos timeline in the cloud service.

Updated over a week ago

The photos timeline accepts several types of image and video files, and will display a preview of these files in the photos timeline and albums in the cloud. 

The following image formats are supported in the Photos section:

  • JPG

  • PNG


  • JPEG-2000


The following RAW formats are supported in the Photos section:

  • Canon: CRW, CR2, CR3

  • Universal: DNG, RAW, RW2

  • Nikon: NEF, NRW

  • Leaf: MOS

  • Sony: ARW, SR2, SRF

  • Mamiya: MEF

  • Hasselblad: 3FR, FFF

  • Epson: ERF

  • Foveon: X3F

  • Minolta: MRW

  • Leika: RWL

  • Kodak: DCR, KDC

  • Pentax: PEF

  • Fuji: RAF

  • Olympus: ORF

There are however some exceptions:

  • Images that do not have an ISO value set in the file's metadata, and are not uploaded from a mobile app or through the website, will be automatically hidden in the timeline. You can manually unhide these files, to show them in the timeline and albums.

  • Images that have a megapixel count lower than 0.2 Megapixels will automatically be excluded from the photos timeline. These images cannot be unhidden.

  • Image files that are larger than 150 MB will not be transcoded, and therefore they will not be shown in the timeline.

The photos timeline supports these video formats:

  • 3GP

  • 3GPP

  • Quicktime

  • MP4

We will most likely add support for more image and video formats in the future.

Please note that you can upload any filetype to our servers, to store them safely in the Files service. This article explains which filetypes can be displayed as previews in the photo timeline.
