Where can I download the trial program? Website or App Store?

It's in their forum, pinned under the beta discussion. And note it's a beta, although a RC. But still a beta so the usual precautions apply.

And I doubt that with most of these extensions you'll be able to access the full range of features. Macphun's extensions come closer than APs, but that's because AP is a graphics program, not just a photo editor. They use similar tools but are really quite different (do a panorama in say Ps vs Lr and you'll see just one example of what I mean). And since you can't save the edits (layers being a good example), but only export, you're still gonna need to access the full applications, not extensions, for lots of work. But for just filling out what Photos can't do weil, they're quite helpful. Again, Photos isn't Aperture and these don't work like Aperture plugins.


I think I'll wait until it gets out of beta.
