You guys are well-oiled machine. Every time I forget about updates, one turns up – usually an excellent, meaty one, like this.

I hope you're proud of your team! There aren't many devs so creative and productive.

 

I'm really excited to see what you come up with as Designer for iPad!

 

cheers,

Thanks for the big update! Great work!

 

Unfortunately the new version does neither resolve this bug nor add this feature we are so desperately waiting for.

 

Any timeline for that?

 

Thank you

Patrick

 

I was hoping to have more luck with this my last post pointing out my issues and to get a response at last... Wishful thinking...

 

I wonder how/when I wronged you... :-(

 

Frustrated greetings

As I understand it, Photo library does not always pass us the image for us to interpret as RAW, it sometimes passes us a JPG. We ask for RAW in preference and sometimes get it, but Photos decides what to pass to us when we ask for RAW. We have to work with what Photos provides. I am sure we will look again at this is anything changes in Photos.
