Hi, is it possible to get the original RAW out of a *.afphoto file?

Thanks, lars

I don't think that's possible. In fact, I don't think it's even in the .afphoto file.

But the original RAW file should still be where it was originally, unless you deleted it.

The .afphoto file is developed from your RAW file so unless the original RAW file was deleted it will still be in its original location

Well, as Serif plans to make the Develop persona nondestructive one actually had to embed the full RAW file into the .afphoto to give access to an untruncated data set. Once in place one could also hook up an Exporter for just the Raw data (as .dng). Similar to the way Photoshop deals with Raw files which live as Smart Objects inside psd files. At that point (as a side effect) one could retrieve the RAW even if the original file from the camera is no more available.

Hi, I know about the original location, and did this question, so you say: no. In other cases one can open the parcel as in Aperture, Fotos or DNG, if the RAF was included.
