Apple no longer supports iPhoto; however, if you still have it installed & use it in preference to Apple's newer Photos.app to manage your photo collection, you can set Affinity Photo as the external editor for iPhoto (iPhoto Preferences > Advanced).

 

The workflow for photos already stored in iPhoto would be:

1. Set up Affinity Photo as the external editor.

2. In iPhoto, use CMD+E or the contextual popup to edit in the external editor.

3. Make your edits in Affinity Photo.

4. File > Save  in Affinity Photo.

5. Close or quit in  in Affinity Photo.

6. Your edited version will be added to iPhoto & used in preference to the original. (You can revert to the original version from the Photo menu.)

 

If the photo is not already in iPhoto's library, edit it as you would any other photo in Affinity Photo, save it, & then import it into iPhoto.

i followed the above advice and it appears to work when looking at the thumbnail image but when you select the image it shows the pre-editted version.  Also, if you use it as your background it is the pre-editted version.  

What am I missing?

 

Thanks,

John P.

Are you using the iPhoto or Photos Apple app?

Sorry, I'm using iPhoto.

Then I am not sure what to tell you. The method I mentioned worked for me back in March when I posted it but I have since deleted iPhoto so I cannot test with it anymore.
