Save As .afphoto from Apple Photos Extension

Recommended Posts

On the Mac, I opened an image in Apple Photos, then used the extensions to open in Affinity Photo. I did a whole bunch of stuff making layers and adjustments and masks. I knew I could save back to Apple Photos as a flattened image, but after I was working on it I realized that I'd like to keep the .afphoto file. I couldn't figure out how to do that. Is it not possible (if approached in the order I describe) or did I miss a button? Save As was greyed out.

 

I know that if I opened Affinity Photo first, and then pointed to my media library I could have done it, but curious if the workflow I describe could have worked. It's easier for me to find an image (64K photos) inside Apple Photos first than it is to start the other way around.

 

And while I'm yapping about this, I recreated my workflow using the iPad and the end effect was WAY better than the one I did on the Mac!

Interesting - hadn't seen the snapshot button before, that's REALLY cool.  However, it doesn't ask me where to save either (so I suspect it saved back to Apple Photos) and save as is still greyed out.  Perhaps I did it wrong?
