— Make your best shots even better with RAW Power™. RAW Power unlocks the power of Apple's RAW engine with simple, easy-to-use controls. More than just an image editor, RAW Power is a full photo application that lets you organize and manage your iOS Photo Library. If you use iCloud Photo Library, all changes are also synced to iCloud, where every image you take and every change you make is instantly available to every app on your iPhone or iPad

— RAW Power brings to iOS the impressive RAW decoding and editing that was formerly only available in Apple’s Aperture professional photo application. Using adjustments like Boost, you can improve your images in ways that simply can't be done in any other application.

— You can use it for more than RAWs -- it's great with JPEGs too, with White Balance, Curves, Sharpen, and other tools missing from the built-in Photos app. RAW Power also includes an innovative new Depth Effect for photos shot on iPhones with a dual camera system. Further, you can start editing on iOS and continue on the Mac (or vice-versa) using the RAW Power extension for the macOS (for JPEG originals only).

— RAW Power is free to download. For more advanced editing needs, a single in-app purchase unlocks the "Advanced Adjustment Pack" which includes White Balance, Curves, and Depth Effect.

Doesn’t appear to work correctly or me


It looks like this app could be great but it fails to ‘keep’ the edits. My source files are Nikon D90 Raw + Jpg uploaded directly to my camera roll from the sd card adapter. If I press edit/adjust I can see the raw changes instantly pop up, if it then crop the image and save it goes back to the original unprocessed version. If I go back in to edit the changes are lost. If instead of crop I change the boost value and save I get the iOS dialog confirming the file will be changed, I say yes, and the viewer again changes to the original unprocessed look. If I go back in now, the editor shows the edits and reapplied them but only while in edit view. Overall it unfortunately doesn’t work, at least not for my raw files.

Developer Response

Hi, I'm sorry that the app doesn't appear to saving edits for you. Version 1.1 was released today and has a fix for a problem that sounds like what you are seeing. Please update to that version. If you still have problems, please contact Thank you.

Best raw editor


This app is the best standalone Raw editor for iphone. Sure there are other editors but none of them provide as much control and they never seem to provide noise reduction tools which are badly needed when editing raw pictures. It even rivals light room mobiles raw editing features and its not a subscription service like light room.

Aperture Lives!!!


Hat’s off to Gentlemen Coders for bringing an Aperture like RAW Editor back to macOS and to iOS in particular.

RAW Power, makes editing RAW files on my iPad Pro an absolute joy and really does make the iPad Pro, for photographers out there, a true laptop replacement.

Keep up the great work Gentlemen Coders, all your efforts are certainly appreciated here. 👍🏼
