DNG converter is a new thing to me, is that something you would use with Lightroom or is a stand alone program?
Do you even need it if you have LR?
Thanks for your help and best wishes.

you generally dont need it. LR can read/write DNG.

The most common use case is if you have an older version of LR or PS that can't read your new camera's raw format and you're too cheap to upgrade.

Or if your a devotee of the DNG format

It is a stand-alone program. Best to install it so that it is there is needed. I use a program called image verifier that calls on DNG converter to determine whether or not image files are at least likely to be valid. If DNG converter fails than chances are that the image file has major structural problems.

Sometimes Adobe can take a little while before releasing updates for Lr and ACR that let you use raw files from brand new camera models. In that event DNG converter can help in the interim.

Or if you find the latest version of LR/PS too crappy and buggy.
