I like where this is going

I like where this is going and see a lot of potential in it, which is why I purchased the pro tools to support the effort. I like the fact it works as a plug-in to Photos and saves back to that library instead of its own library. I purchased 2TB of iCloud storage and that is how I store and synchronize most of my pictures now. I edit a lot on my iPad Pro now, but would like to hand off and edit on my Mac with the same tools. And as someone who LOVED Aperture, I am glad to see a company that would like to give us that experience again. That said, there are some things I will need to make it my main editor. First, it needs a vignette tool. If it could add an inner glow like some other editors while making a darker edge vignette that would be great. I also need the ability to brush the adjustments in, preferably in layers but at least with multiple spot adjustments. Brush compatibility here with the Apple Pencil would be essential. An example of why this is need is when making shadow adjustments, sometimes a global shadow adjustment will simply not work as usually there are some shadows you want to keep, while others you need to get more detail out of. Anyway keep up the good work and if it gets better I will certainly use it more and promote it.


Pro RAW Editing on iOS is a Reality

There must be 100’s if not 1000’s of photo apps in the App Store that claim to edit raw files but nothing comes close to RAW Power. What you’re getting is access to the full potential of your raw files either from your DSLR, Mirrorless or iPhone camera. You can use RAW Power to not only enhance the color and tonality of your images but it can also help you organize all your iCloud photos too. The advantage of this is that using RAW Power to organize your photos is straight forward and easier to understand that using the built in Apple Photos app.

Even if you prefer to use a different app to process raw files, RAW Power is a must have for file management alone. For processing raw photos though, this is the closest thing we have to Apples Aperture and true alternative to Adobe Lightroom on iOS.

I am looking forward to creating and saving my own presets in the future but that’s the only thing that I feel is missing from this near perfect app. RAW Power is by far, the best raw processing and photo management app on iOS.


Real editing tools for the iPhone

I’m a professional photographer and cinematographer and I have been test driving the iPhone X to see if I can create publication quality images with the dual camera. Out of the box, I was hugely disappointed with the file quality—too contrasty, nasty blotchy noise reduction.

So I started exploring manual camera apps and discovered Obscura. Just locking down exposure and focus controls made a huge difference, but the raw format option is what got me excited. Enter RAW Power and now I can shoot properly exposed files and optimize them in a raw, lossless workflow, all on the iPhone X.

Brief list of awesome features:
-True raw, lossless workflow (you can reopen after saving and make adjustments, all the original data is still there.)
-True WB temp and tint controls (not one-dimensional warmth)
-Separate raw and post tone and sharpness controls.
-Four channel RGB curves with blending control. Yes, real curves.
-Copy and paste adjustments from one file to another.
-Intelligent and intuitive layout/workflow.

Things that could be better:
-Thin, small caps typography is ugly and not very legible.
-Sliders use touch controls only, so hard to fine tune WB tint. Would be smart to have a plus and minus button on either end for incremental steps.
- Export vs save options not clearly defined or documented.

On balance this is an amazing tool.
