    I am using the following workflow

    1) Copy RAW files form SD card to iCloud map
    2) Select and edit RAW files in this iCloud with RAW Power on Mac
    3) Import edited RAW files on iCloud map in OSX Photos
    4) Delete original RAW files from SD card and iCloud map. Photos is used for storing en sharing.
    5) Additional editing in Photos with RAW Power extension

    Problem: After import in OSX Photos the changes made with RAW Power do not occur.

    How can I solve this? Is this the best workflow?

    Hi Imme,

    The edits are not preserved because of the way that the images are being imported. Apple Photos does not read in RAW Power adjustments.

    There are other ways to do this that will preserve your edits.

    If you are using macOS Catalina, you can edit images in the Photos library using the RAW Power app (instead of the extension).
    To do that:
    1) Import your images from the SD card straight into Photos
    2) Using the RAW Power app, pick Files > New Photo Library Window
    3) Edit the images – the changes will be saved into the photo library and sync over iCloud.

    If you are using Mojave, then you have to use the RAW Power Photos extension. In that case, I would do this:
    1) Import from SD Card to your local disk (no need to use iCloud here)
    2) Select images with RAW Power using ratings or flags, or whatever
    3) Import the selected images into Photos
    4) Edit with RAW Power Photos extension.

    Does that help?



    Yes that works perfect in macOS Catalina. Thanks! Is there a way to authorize RAW Power to make changes in Photos? Now Photos asks me to approve every change.

    Unfortunately, there isn’t a way to avoid that dialog.
