I am saving an edited RAW file in a dng format  while working on the file in the "camera raw"  - then I am  making some edits/changes - and save the file to the hard disk but I don't see the changes I have just  made and saved.

I guess I am doing something wrong. Can you help please ?

RAW files taken with a SONY RX100M6.

Thanks as always, much appreciated

Do you look at the file using explorer or bridge? The changes you made are stored in the metadata of the file because DNG is a RAW format also (so non-destructive). Bridge will recognize these edit instructions and will show you the altered result. Explorer does’t. When you want a result with the edits ‘baked in’ you have to export as JPG or Tiff
