View Full Version : iPhoto5 + RAW trick

22nd February 2005, 11:16 AM
Here's a trick/suggestion for those wishing to get a good workflow with iPhoto5 and RAW images and Photoshop (PS). This may not be news to all but it took me a long time to find this out.

If you want to edit the RAW (original) file, hold OPTION down while draging the photo from iPhoto to the PS icon in the dock.

Be careful as iPhoto will not be aware of any changes you make to the RAW file unless you save the file in a compatible format and import it again.

iPhoto now handles RAW images from cameras that support them.
iPhoto creates a JPEG version of the RAW to display and edit.
You can set iPhoto up to EDIT the images in another program (eg Photoshop) in preferences, but when you do this it only edits the JPEG version.
