Make your best shots even better with RAW Power™. RAW Power unlocks the hidden power of Apple's RAW engine with simple, easy-to-use controls. Use it as an editing extension inside Apple Photos, or as a standalone, non-destructive RAW photo editor with file browser. It's great with JPEGs too, with important adjustments missing from Apple's Photos application (such as Perspective and Chromatic Aberration)
If you loved Aperture's advanced RAW processing adjustments, you'll feel right at home with RAW Power. Using adjustments like Boost, previously only available in Aperture, you can improve your images in ways that simply can't be done in any other application. RAW Power takes advantage of RAW processing improvements in macOS High Sierra and Mojave.

Ratings and Reviews
Love the update! Version 2.0
Keep it coming! Great Raw Converter. Stand alone app so close to Aperture. Which is still my favourite RAW Conversion program and sadly missed.
Really easy to use for more advanced functions. I'm not a pro so I don't want to pay for a really high end photo editor. I'm really happy with this!
cropping in inches
Like the program, operates fast, would like touchup, options on cropping like inches, centimetres, keep going add a data base DAM functions! Tks greg,
still want Aperture elements guys!! Its left a big hole!
