This is how Photos in High Sierra handles external editors (and it's not that great) #1

I’ve installed the High Sierra beta, just to see how the new “open with” functionality of Photos works. Essentially, the photo is passed in a folder, and Photos monitors for it to be updated. A jpg is passed as a jpg, but a raw file is passed as a tiff. I tested this by opening edits in Preview and Picktorial. Interestingly, if you re-edit a raw file, it is then passed as a jpg. I would have though it could have been maintained as a tiff in Photos.

So a little better, I suppose. But a history of edits is not maintained between edit session in any way.

Are there no settings that you can change to keep it as a tiff if you wanted?

If you don't have a solution you don't have a problem!

None that I’m aware of.

At least a little step forward. Still a long way to go, Apple.

This is something I just discovered. Very annoying.

I don’t understand the difference between the old ‘extensions’ functionality and this new ‘open with’? They appear to do the exact same thing.

Not much, except that the extension facility used to pass RAW files as JPEGs (I think).
