Recommended Posts

What file format should I choose when importing Raw files from Aperture to Affinity Photo? The choices listed are jpeg,tiff,png,psd, all different size settings and 8 or 16 bit.( I don't use photoshop). Thanks

Use any you listed but jpg.

I export the original RAW file from Aperture to a directory. Then I open that file in Affinity Photo. That way I am working with the camera's RAW file. When finished, I import a jpg of the finished photo back into Aperture. That way I have more control over where the file is stored. My library is split between the Mac drive and an external drive.

Why jpg? I won't be doing anything but viewing it. All editing will be done with Affinity Photo.
