    I do not seem to be able to tell if there are new or changed photos in a folder. When does this happen? On closing and restarting app? Or when you go from one folder to another folder?
    Second, an explanation of how “Edit with External App” works would be helpful too.
    Thanks,

    The app receives messages from the operating system when folders change. So, it updates whenever it gets a message. However, those messages are very “chatty”, so the app has code to prevent it from constantly refreshing.

    Edit with External App: You pick an app from the list. The app provides you with some choices for how to render the image to send to the app (JPEG, TIFF, etc). The image is made and sent to the other app. The app modifies the file and the image updates in RAW Power.

    HOWEVER, this assumes that the external app actually modifies the file. If it creates a project file (e.g., photoshop or Pixelmator), then it’s not modifying the file. In that case, you have to export the file to get it to show up in RAW Power.
