Ratings and Reviews
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.

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.
