JPEG’s+Raw images. Can I split them?

Saving images into Apple Photos that are combined jpeg+raw seems to make them inseparable.

is there a way to separate them so I can use the RAW only image.?

Every RAW file contains both: the actual RAW data, and an JPEG version used to provide a preview, e.g. as thumbnail even for those apps who cannot read the RAW part.

Apple Photos has its quirks and in many cases does automatically choose (the wrong one) if you use drag and drop or edit in, or even generates a downsampled version.

I personally don't trust Apple Photos because of its multiple "automagic" functions.

No, does not make sense. Store your RAW files in a folders or a real DAM system. It's an Apple Photos issue.

Well that’s my point actually. I’m not concerned about whose ‘issue’ it is, because what I’m asking is if Affinity has or can implement a method of seperating the raw from the jog. Just like Lightroom and a lot of the other apps on the market.

If the mechanics of it are known then the solution should be relatively simple.

The image shows as this, in the circle. I have a lot of these images. 
Anyway, obviously this is not something anybody is worried about.

I actually don’t know if Apple offers an API allowing Affinity to request the RAW file. The current state is dissatisfying.

Yes, it’s a real nuisance. Hopefully it’ll come one day but I’m not holding out much hope.
