Re: Photos App

Re: Photos App

I have four file formats I can test: RW2 (Panasonic raw) jpg (variety of cameras) tiff (scans) psd (edited or created in Photoshop) Using Image > Edit With > Adobe Photoshop, they all open as jpg. As a test, I edited an RW2 20 MP image, 23.6 MB. I used Image > Edit With > Adobe Photoshop. Photoshop ...

Re: Photos App

That's weird that your workflow would change formats like that.

Re: Photos App

Hmm.
I'm using Image > Edit With > Adobe Photoshop. What I see in Photoshop is then a .jpg file

If I use File > Export > Export Unmodified Original, I have to save the file somewhere, then open that in Photoshop.

How are you exporting?

Re: Photos App

Here's one issue I've found with Photos, as compared to Aperture: In Aperture, if I opened an image in my external editor of choice, Photoshop, Aperture would create a duplicate image in .psd format, and save that. So I could edit in Photoshop, save the edits and then open the image again in Photosh...

Product Prediction

I just realized an application that could take Apple's rumored wireless charging pad from a slight convenience to a real convenience. So far Apple's and all the other wireless charging pads can, for example, charge an iPhone and an Apple Watch at the same time. Soon, Apple will release a wireless-ch...

Re: Photos App

I've done a lot of Shadows adjustments and White Balance, but haven't really delved into the finer grained adjustments with Levels and Curves. Photos now has a lot of adjustments that Aperture had, much more than when Photos was first introduced. I noticed recently a healing brush in Photos that wor...

Re: Photos App Extensions

Has anyone used Photos extensions, for prints or photo manipulation? Especially, I'm wondering if any SMUG folks have used any of the print services that are now required to replace Apple's own print service. We have bought a few 20x30 prints from Apple and thought they were fantastic. We also made ...

Re: Air Drop not working.

I have no idea how I got that set wrong in the first place. I think I figured this out. In following this procedure to share one contacts list, I inadvertently ended up with two Me names in the shared contacts list. I think deleting one of those and then adding one of the persons back as a regular ...
