Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your detailed review. Version 2.0, now available, adds a vignette adjustment, with a controllable center point. Brushing is a high priority for future releases.
Adjust tools on the left on landscape iPad? Whose idea was this?
EDIT: I complain below about the Adjust tools being on the left, but I did not realize they can be moved to the right if you move the Info panel first (!). This is terrific, even though it's not completely intuitive (it doesn't seem you can move the Adjust panel). This app works great for me now. Thanks guys!
Original critique follows, for posterity.
I'm an iCloud Photo Library user, and I really like how this app seamlessly integrates with it. I also shoot Pentax and Olympus RAWs, edit on 2017 iPad Pro 12.9, and with this app I don't have to think about importing and exporting like I do with the competitors' apps. I want to use this app simply for how friction-free that experience is. But in landscape mode the Adjust tools are on the left. WHY??? Roughly 90% of the population is right handed. Putting the Adjust tools on the left means 90% of the population has to reach to the other side of the screen, blocking the content they're trying to manipulate. Plus, it's uncomfortable, even when using a Pencil. Bad design decision, guys. Did the devs try this use case? Is the CEO left-handed?
Devs, please move the Adjust tools to the right side, or at least make it a user preference setting. If the tools were on the right, I'd pay to unlock. As it is now, editing with this UI is cumbersome. Thank you.
Developer Response ,
Hi, Thank you for your email. The Inspector (which holds the adjustment tools in landscape) can be moved to the right side. Drag the inspector from one of titles (for example, "Adjust") and move it to the right of the screen. You make a good point about the default location, so we will make the default be on the right as well in the next release. I hope that helps.
