Apple Photos edit extension loses color profile

Recommended Posts



By executing the following steps:

  • Import an Adobe RGB jpeg picture in Apple Photos,
  • Edit the photo through the Affinity Photo extension "Edit in Affinity Photo"

AP does not identify the color profile and it assigns the default one. 


If I simply open the picture with AP, the color profile it's managed correctly.


Does Apple Photos purge the color profile data? Is there any other way to edit the file directly without using the "External Editors" extension?


Thank you

Hi cinc,


Welcome to the forums.


I can't seem to reproduce the issue, on my system. I've assigned Adobe RGB icc profile to my image and imported into Apple Photos and then used the Edit in Affinity extension.When the image is opened in Affinity Photo it's still showing as having the Adobe RGB colour profile assigned.


Can you provide a link to one of your images so I can test?
