    Hi Holmsi,
    there is FileBrowserBusiness in AppStore and it’s kinda Apple Files on steroids. Integrate it into Files app, select view file extensions and you can do what you want with your any kind of files.

    According to Apple now it is possible to migrate the Aperture libraries to Catalina Photos with detailed explanations how Photos handles content, metadata, and smart albums from Aperture

    I newer understood the purpose of Fuji X-Raw Studio.
    It converts the raw file to jpeg in camera but you still don’t have the possibility to save the applied settings.

    Hi, I just found this.
    Not sure if tis will be a complete solution for migration with preserved settings or just and import from one library to another.

    “Starting with macOS Catalina, Aperture is no longer compatible with macOS. If you upgraded to macOS Catalina before migrating your Aperture library, you can still use Photos to choose your Aperture library, as pictured above. However, Photos might show only the original photos, not any edits that you made to them in Aperture.
    Apple will soon release a macOS Catalina update to help resolve this issue. Until then, you should keep your Aperture library and expect to migrate it to Photos again. You may also want to avoid using Photos to add or edit photos, because those changes won’t be kept when you migrate your library again.
    This article will be updated as more information becomes available.”

    Hi,
    I changed from “ColourLCD” to “Display P3” and seems that the rendering of all app icons is different, less clear. 🙁
    No differences spotted in RawPower pictures quality.

    Just a short info on iCloud Drive backup nuances:

    The rule seems to be that Time Machine does back up the contents iCloud Drive, but only those items which are currently stored locally.
    Any items which have been evicted to iCloud, and are only represented by local stub files, aren’t backed up.

    Another Apple curiosity, this time related to Photos Libraries backup.

    Apple’s advice on backing up Photos Libraries is to either use Time Machine, or make a manual copy of the library to external storage.
    At present, only the latter will actually replicate your library in full. When Time Machine backs up a Photos Library, it completely
    omits the database folder within it, where all its vital metadata are stored.

    Apple has apparently been informed of this problem, but hasn’t got round either to addressing it, or to warning users that their Time Machine
    backup will loose their metadata when restored.

    This is a strange behaviour on the part of Photos and Time Machine. Manually copying Photos Libraries works around this issue perfectly well.
    It happens because the database folder inside a Photos Library has an extended attribute of type com.apple.metadata:com_apple_backup_excludeItem
    which prevents it from being backed up by Time Machine.

    The conflict between Aperture and Photos seems to be broader, the (or some) catalogues are also affected.

    Sorry for advertising a competitor, but seems that Capture One resolved the migration from Aperture.

    Capture One is a very fine raw editor, but insanely expensive in the last few years, so I give it up.
    The free Fuji/Sony versions allows only import to catalogue, no direct editing from folders possible!

    Except the extraordinary image quality provided by Capture One I like the very configurable tools menu!

    Hello Nik,
    yes the purpose is offline viewing.
    Maybe it is possible to download the videos from YouTube, but I don’t have an YT account nor the intention to create one.

    Thank you

    Thank you for explanation Nik, although I thing that Google can aggregate data from different sources including the RawPower users to create a nice profile for sale.

    DxO has the sidecar files along with images and it’s a total mess!

    @ regixkn and all others.

    I don’t want to dismiss your features requests, every user needs and tastes are very different, but…

    When I discovered RAW Power, mainly the macOS version, I was hoping to have a super simple app for making only few fast adjustment to a raw picture and to export or print! it.
    Now seems that RP will sink in the bulk of many other similar apps by adding countless of features to become what other apps using apple engine are, just with a different interface design and layout.
    This is my point of view, possible that nobody will join. I also understand that Nik want / need to earn money, so my proposal is to focus on image quality instead of functions quantity. Simplicity is genius!

    V.
