Lot of potential. Good start.

This app has a lot of potential. I am a former Aperture user and really appreciate the control it provides. I recognize it is an early version.

1. When I save, the only choice it gives is to save over the original. I am a travel photographer and often like to create different versions of some shots. Very frustrating when there is no “save as” option. That is essential for me.

2. Will you consider the Addition of a perspective tool? Another tool I find essential as a travel, historic and landscape photographer.

An excellent start, but not yet complete enough for my needs. Oh and thanks for allowing the trial (but not save) use of the buyup options. That is a nice touch.

Good to support cloud services but don’t get carried away with that. Much of the world still does not have reliable internet and cloud services and sync are not options. I have internet where I live but it is heavily “data capped” preventing any regular use of cloud services. (If I turn on either Apple or Adobe cloud services, my entire monthly data allowance will be consumed in a week or less). Remember that your market is global and not restricted to a few “1rst world countries”.

I like what I see in RAW Power, but not there yet for my needs. I will be following your progress.

Thanks for creating this app. I’ll be following it in hopes it will evolve to my needs.

I still miss Aperture. Nice to see the core tools are back.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review. To answer your questions:
1) Please download the latest version of the app to get this feature. Then go to the Settings app, select RAW Power, and change the “Editing” preference. Once you do that, any time you edit an image, it will make a separate image in the library.

2) Perspective is now available in version 2.0 of the app.

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.

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.
