Ratings and Reviews
Not the best Raw Convertor
I'm using PhotoRaw on an iPad Air and while it downloads and runs fine, the quality of the Raw conversions and output are sub-standard. I'm converting Canon CR2 files from older Canon cameras, so the conversion should be good to great. They aren't. Using any of the Recovery sliders (Shadow and/or Highlight) results in posterization. The skies are really bad to the point of being unusable.
The software lacks tools found in other iOS Raw Convertors, most notably noise reduction and sharpening.
The price is less than most convertors, but it lack the ability to do a few basic functions and does others poorly. Your money is best spent on other convertors, such as PhotoGene, my go to iOS app for Raw conversions and editing on an iPad.
Good Basic Raw Converter.
If you are looking for a good simple RAW converter to use on the road this will do the trick. I can convert my RAW images to Tiff then export them to other apps to finish editing. The app is just a RAW converter and not an editing app. The only area that really needs improvement is highlight and shadow recovery. Otherwise, it is a simple easy to use app that does the job.
Raw Conversion and Simplicity
I'm a semi-pro photographer and shoot in RAW format 99% of the time. Currently I use Apple's Aperture for my RAW conversion and post processing. Although I find Aperture an excellent photo processor, it can be a little confusing at times with all of its capabilities. I saw this app while browsing the app store and decided to download after reading the developers web site. I was pleased to find it did what is advertised and does it well. Further, it is very simplistic to use and gets down to the basics of post processing. I wish it had an histogram view but not a major issue, just would be a little helpful.
Performance is not bad but be prepared to wait a little during up loads. The controls are good but can be hard to make very minor changes with the sliders (a little tweaking could fix this), should be just a little smoother but, again not a major issue.
For basic post processing work it is excellent; easy to use, all of the basic adjustments are available. I use this app in the field for quick post processing on my New IPAD, then up load into my MAC Mini or MAC PRO to use Aperture for extra fine detail work, then print or save to JPEGs.
This app will get a lot use during my photo sessions. Nice job! Recommend to any photographer shooting RAW format.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
