Uploading RAW (NEF) FIles to Digital Ocean Spaces
Experiencing a bit of a weird edge-case scenario with Digital Ocean Spaces.
Context: We’re using the Spaces API to let our clients upload RAW image files (NEF format) which are then downloaded by our employees.
Problem: Despite being correctly uploaded as NEF files, the files are downloaded as .tiff when downloaded from the Digital Ocean Spaces in Chrome. In Firefox, the file is correctly downloaded as NEF.
What I’ve tried so far to narrow the problem down:
1) Uploading directly via your UI and confirming the problem happens that way too
2) Uploading and downloading the file to a different cloud storage provider (I tried Google Drive and AWS S3 and both providers download the file as NEF correctly).
3) Tried different NEF files to confirm it’s a widespread problem
I’m not sure exactly why this is happening – something with the content-type of the file perhaps?
In any case, it’s a weird issue and will heavily affect the way we can use Digital Ocean Spaces for our use case, so any ideas or help would be appreciated. I submitted this as a ticket as well, but figured I’d give the forums a try as well
Thanks so much!
