Have you encountered a problem with a DCP file? Don’t you know which program opens a file with this extension? You will find all the information you need about working with a DCP file here. In the further part of this page we have added a list of programs that should open your DCP file. It is enough you choose a proper application for your operating system, download and install it.


The file extension DCP identifies camera profiles for the Adobe dng (Digital Negative) format. Dcp files include camera-specific settings for hue and saturation of the three color channels and the shadows. These values are taken into account when importing raw files.

Adobe offers profiles for various cameras on its website. However, for example, you can create or modify ones yourself using the free DNG Profile Editor. Dcp files can be used in the Adobe Photoshop image-editing software and Lightroom photo management and editing software. Using a free command-line tool, DCP files can be converted into icc profiles for use in other programs.

How to open a DCP file? Advice and guidance

Absolutely most often appearing reason that prevents you from opening the DCP file is the lack of a proper application to support it in your operating system. It is notably the first thing you need to address. When one of the programs to support a DCP file from the list is already installed, you can try to rerun the file. The system should display a message asking you to choose a primary application to support DCP files. At this point we are looking for disk space where the application was installed in and we can link it with a DCP file. Since then, our operating system will use the selected program to support all DCP files.

Other issues

Despite the described problem with DCP there may be many more problems. If the existing operations were not effective, get involved with the following matters:

- verify that the DCP file is not damaged and that it has been downloaded or copied in whole
- verify that the file has a file extension that has not been intentionally changed (for example, if it do not contain other information than its extension suggests)
- make sure again whether the DCP file type is linked in the operating system with a proper program
- make sure that the file is not infected with a virus and you have up to date software and drivers.
