RAW Power has the best Finder, Photos and iCloud integration of any non-Apple photo app, plus advanced RAW editing, ratings and more.
RAW Power is three tools in one:
1) A fast, non-destructive image editor app. No need to import – RAW Power can quickly browse any folder on your disk.
2) An Apple Photos library app. It is also compatible with iCloud Photos, so any Photos library changes you make sync to your other Macs and iOS devices.
3) A Photos editing extension.
Any way you use it, you get the same impressive editing features. With either app mode, you can rate, flag, and filter too.
RAW Power is great with JPEGs, with powerful adjustments absent from Apple’s Photos (such as LUTs, Depth Effect and Chromatic Aberration)
If you loved Aperture’s advanced RAW processing, you’ll feel at home with RAW Power. Adjustments like Boost, previously only available in Aperture, help you improve your images in ways that simply can’t be done in any other application.
— ADVANCED RAW: Unlock the power of Apple’s RAW engine (previously only in Aperture). Unique adjustments improve photos in ways impossible in any other app.
— ORGANIZE: RAW Power can organize and manage your Photos Library (requires Catalina). Fully compatible with iCloud Photo Library, so library changes are synced.
— FINDER SUPPORT: RAW Power is a fast, standalone image editor with the same excellent non-destructive, RAW processing.
— RATE & FILTER: Filter by file type, rating, flag, and edit state. Ratings and flags sync over iCloud Photos!
— EDIT CROSS-PLATFORM: Start on one device and continue on another using RAW Power 3 for iOS (separate purchase). RAW Power is also a Photos editing extension with all the same adjustments.
— BATCH PROCESSING: Apply presets, paste adjustments, and export images. Apply Auto Enhance or Auto White Balance to many images at once.
