Just the app I needed

This app is perfect for my needs. It is really powerful and has some excellent tools for editing RAW format. It looks and feels very much like aperture I used to use on my MacBook. It takes a photo from your iCloud library, allows you to edit and then sends it back to cloud when done. Good tutorials. I can see this developing over the years to include more features like aperture.

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.
