    If you want a literal crop to inches, then there are two ways:
    Enter a large pixel value (6000 x 6000) for example which would be 20×20 at 300 dpi
    Or, use a square crop and then export at a custom size, which is actually the same thing.

    The crop numbers are unit-less. They are a ratio, in the way that a camera may shoot 3×2 or 4×3 – those are also not in mm or pixels.

    6″x9″ is not well defined either, because it depends on the ppi and images are simply in pixels.

    If you want a 6×9, which is also 2×3, then set the crop to 2×3 and when you export, specify the size you want in pixels.

    It’s by design, because Move to Trash is undoable. The app could conceivably move the sidecar and the preview to the trash and then undo them, but it doesn’t right now.

    Right. That’s saturation control. And yes, it’s overall, not midtones. Sorry.

    That’s pretty crazy that they do that. I was only talking about properly-engineered extensions that follow Apple’s rules, so YMMV with other ones!

    I was planning to make a video, but I just haven’t found the time. The UI for RAW Power’s split toning is fairly similar to Lightroom’s, so videos on those are probably useful.

    You can work with highlights, or shadows, or midtones. You can tint them independently.

    You also have the ability to work with the luminance (brightness) of highlights, or shadows, or midtones independently.

    Finally, the Balance slider controls the definition of “highlights” vs. “shadows” that is, how dark must something be to be shadow (and thus the inverse is a highlight pixel).

    Great Answer, Ben!

    Any image you edit with RAW Power in the Photo Library is available in Photos for use with its editing tools (or other extensions). This is true whether you use the extension or the standalone app. You will be editing a JPEG, however. That JPEG is generated by RAW Power and is required by Apple so that other tools can work with a standard format.

    People have seen some weird things in Ventura (these are bugs in Ventura)
    Two simple things to start with:
    1) Quit and reopen Photos
    2) Restart the computer

    I suspect that something is stuck in OS extension loading system.

    Yes, I see your point.

    I do not know why that would be happening. I got an email from you and will follow up there because I need more info than can be done through a forum.

    Apollo One works differently from RAW Power. It does focus more on organizing than editing. However, that app has the same problem that RAW Power has with Finder Tags (I know the developer and we have communicated about it). So, I believe Apollo One just uses the default label names, so if you have customized your label names it won’t work the way it used to.

    I checked the latest beta. Sorry – no changes from Monterey.

    I haven’t checked the latest beta – when I do, I will post here.

    Yes, RAW Power fully understands the ProRAW format. That’s because it uses Apple’s RAW engine for these files. You have access to Apple’s Tone Map control which is the thing that is usually missing from other apps.
