.afphoto files will not import into photos

Recommended Posts

So there is no way to save the  file with layers and adjustments, ie as a master file. There are times when you want to save work in progress but keep it saved along with the original raw file. In my current file system I save all images (raw, work in progress and exported tiff or jpeg) saved to external drive plus back up. If photos cannot at least save the .afphoto file in the library then that is a pretty serious omission. I have ditched Adobe and am retrying apple photos as a replacment for lightroom library. All is good except for this major drawback. Don't know if the fault lies with affinity or apple, I suppose both will deny responsibility.

Yes - you can export as TIFF and select to embed Affinity layers in the file.  Once a file has Affinity layers, the regular load-save will continue to embed the layers in the overwritten TIFF file.
