    Hi,

    The panels generally do remember their state, so I’m confused that you are seeing this. I just tried your steps, and after leaving Edit, the browser and thumbnails were still hidden. The info panel did reappear though. Probably the best way to try to resolve this is to upload a video so I can look at it. Please email me at support@gentlemencoders.com and we can go from there. Thanks.

    Hi,

    There could be more shortcut access to tools – most of the adjustments can be added with a keystroke, but not for a tool within an adjustment (e.g. crop). It’s something I’d like to improve in the future, but it’s trickier to get right than it might appear (I have tried in the past but my quick fixes caused other bugs).

    I don’t have an ETA to share for graduated filters or other selective adjustments. Sorry – I have provided ETAs for features in the past, but since RAW Power is made by an individual developer (me), many things can throw me off track, so I no longer provide estimates or future directions.

    The app doesn’t have an AI Based noise reduction.

    It is certainly possible to reduce noise in jpegs in general. I was just making sure you know that the RAW Power noise reduction is limited to RAW.

    If you have a RAW image, then you can use the sliders that are in the RAW Processing adjustment. There are three: Luma Noise (black and white noise), Color Noise (color speckles) and Detail. The Detail slider brings back some grain that can be lost when applying denoise. There are no noise reduction tools for JPEG.

    I recall seeing a bug with Photos and switching between R+J when the RAW is unsupported. It definitely used to work, but it may hang now. That’s a Photos bug (the extension isn’t loaded, so it cannot be the extension causing the problem).

    The key thing to know is that the extension is very restricted in what it can do. It can only edit the image that Photos gives it. In the case of R+J, it edits one or the other depending on the Use RAW Original or Use JPEG Original setting. The extension _cannot_ switch to the RAW on its own (there is no facility for that).

    If you are set to JPEG+RAW (that is, viewing the JPEG), then that’s what Photos sends to the extension (only). If you switch to RAW, then it gets that (assuming you have not edited the image in Photos or another extension already).

    You might have better luck if you switch to RAW before entering edit, but I don’t know for sure (I’m not at my computer to test this myself).

    The standalone app has full access to both the R+J so it can edit either half of the pair as needed.

    Hi Mikhail,

    Sorry to hear about this problem. I have not run into it before. For Photos libraries, access to all images is through macOS itself. I imagine there might be some kind of cache that could be at issue. The simplest thing to do at this point is to remove a few files from the application’s sandbox folder. That should clear any stale data.

    What the following steps will do is remove any Locations or Favorites that the application has remembered.

    1) Quit the app if it’s running
    2) Go to the Finder
    3) Pick the Go > Go to Folder menu item
    4) Paste this in and hit return:
    ~/Library/Containers/com.gentlemencoders.RAWPower/Data/Library/Application Support/
    5) You will see a file called Locations.rpbookmarklist
    6) Rename it (e.g., preface with a “-“ or something)

    You can do the same thing for Favorites.rpbookmarklist and singleFileEditor.rpbookmarklist

    7) Open the app.

    If you add directories at that point, the app will make a new Locations.rpbookmarklist, etc.

    If that does not help, then the preferences file could also be removed, but that can be step 2.

    To remove the preferences file, you can do the following:

    1) Quit the app
    2) Go to the Finder
    3) Pick the Go > Go to Folder menu item
    4) Paste this in and hit return:
    ~/Library/Containers/com.gentlemencoders.RAWPower/Data/Library/Preferences/
    5) Delete com.gentlemencoders.RAWPower.plist and 6MR872QP3J.RAWPower.sharedDefaults.plist.
    6) Open the app

    Yes, it not only supports them, but it has a special slider just for those files. I made a video that discusses ProRAW and how to use RAW Power with it. You can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LguSpnDoShM

    They do reject non-numeric characters, once you try to accept the field.

    All adjustments have text fields next to them which are editable, so you can type -.5 if you like. You can also use the arrow keys (and various modifiers) to jump the values up and down. To type in a text field, double click it.

    The app is not designed to work exactly the same as Aperture. Edit mode is modal as it is in Photos. This is partly because of the PhotoKit dialog that requires approval after editing and also to simplify (and gate) things like downloading originals – these are not issues that Aperture had to face.

    Yes, this is a known issue.

    in reply to: Copy Adjustments #126243
    Nik Bhatt

    I don’t know of any such issue. Copy Adjustments comes up immediately for me all the time. Copy Adjustments is only valid if you right click or select an image with adjustments. I’m not sure what could be happening on your machine. Perhaps other things are slow as well?

    in reply to: Copy Adjustments #126218

    Copy Adjustments in Photos does not work with the Extension – that is a Photos-only feature. However, RAW Power automatically saves the last set of adjustments you used on an image as a synthesized “preset”. You can go to the next image you want to edit and use the preset menu to apply those those settings. So, in that way you can get the effect of Copy / Paste.

    in reply to: Recommended workflow – Halide-(RPiOS)-Photos-RPmac ? #126193
    Nik Bhatt
    Keymaster

    Since Halide uses the photo library, if you use iCloud Photos, then the images will get synced to your Mac and you can use RAW Power there (or Photos). iCloud will send the original RAW.

    If you aren’t using iCloud Photos, then you can import them from your phone to the Mac. Photos will import the RAW as well. There will not be any conversion to JPEG as long as you use Photos to import the images (vs. using share or some other means).

    If you start in RAW Power for iOS and then save as non-destructive, you can continue editing on the Mac with RAW Power. That will work when using iCloud, which will sync both the editing data and original image. If you don’t use iCloud, then it’s “possible” to import the editing data from iOS, but Photos is very unreliable in this regard (I have no idea if it even works with the latest OS – it’s that sketchy).

    Hmm. You have found a bug in the trial mode. I didn’t see it in my testing – sorry about that. It works fine once the app is purchased. I’ll put in a fix for the trial case in the next release.
