RAW Power 2.0 for Mac and iOS launched with batch editing, new adjustment tools, Dark Mode
A year ago, Nik Bhatt, founder of Gentlemen Coders and a former lead developer for Apple's Aperture and iPhoto team, released RAW Power, an iOS-based Raw photo editor. Today, a year after its initial launch, RAW Power 2.0 has been released and with it comes updated adjustment tools, batch editing, and more.
RAW Power for Mac 2.0
RAW Power for Mac 2.0 operates as both a standalone app, as well as an extension for Apple Photos. The updated version brings new adjustment tools including chromatic aberration correction, perspective correction, a black and white mode, a vignette tool, and a new enhance module.
Batch processing has also been adding. Now, users can apply filters and adjustments in bulk and copy edits from one photo to another. A new custom naming tool has been added for better organization upon exporting photos.
RAW Power for Mac 2.0 has also received a few UI tweaks. It now includes a full file browser, multiple window and tab support, a thumbnail grid view, Quick Look support, improved metadata information, and a new dark look to go along with maxO Mojave's Dark Mode.
RAW Power for Mac 2.0 works with macOS High Sierra and Mojave. It retails for $29.99 as a one-time purchase, but Gentleman Coders is currently offering it for $26.99 throughout the month of November. Version 2.0 is a free update for existing RAW Power for Mac 1.0 users.
RAW Power for iOS 2.0
RAW Power for iOS 2.0 claims to be 'the first app to combine Raw image editing with seamless iOS and iCloud library integration.' Like its macOS counterpart, this update brings along the same new adjustment tools (some of which are hidden behind a $1.99 in-app purchase) including chromatic aberration correction, perspective correction, a black and white mode, a vignette tool, and a new enhance module. Gentleman Coders says these adjustments are 100 percent compatible with the macOS version and will sync through iCloud Photo Library if you have it enabled.
Batch processing is also present in the iOS version. Users can now 'apply presets, paste adjustments, revert to original, and generate JPEG previews for [Raw photos] for multiple images at a time.' The UI has also been updated across the board, including a customizable adjustment panel and a new option to share and export directly to the Photos app in various formats.
RAW Power for iOS 2.0 is available for $2.99 in the iOS App Store with two optional in-app purchases for $1.99: Advanced Adjustment Pack 1 and 2. Advanced Adjustment Pack 1 includes Depth Effect, Curves, and white balance adjustments. Advanced Adjustment Pack 2, a new pack for version 2.0 of the app, includes chromatic aberration, vignette, perspective, and black and white adjustments.
RAW Power for iOS 2.0 supports iOS 11 and 12 and 'does not support iPhone 5s, 6, or 6 Plus, or iPad mini 3 or earlier.'
