RAW Power 2.0 for Mac and iOS Released


RAW Power

For those, who missed our original RAW Power article of February 2017 here, the RAW Power app brings Aperture style interface and functions to Mac Photos.

Now Nik Bhatt, former Aperture developer at Apple, has released RAW Power ver. 2.0. Down below the full list of new features and improvements.

Earlier this year, Nik also introduced the Lightroom plug-in for RAW Power, which allows you to access RAW Power directly from the Lighroom interface and do non-destuctive editing.
