The Mac App Store is currently showing a curated list of apps that work as Extensions for Photos. This link should take you there, but if it doesn't… open the App Store, and you should see an “Apps For Photographers” slide on the very top, in rotation.

Click that and at the top of the resulting page, you'll see the category “Editing Extensions for the Photos App”. 

As of this writing, we're seeing just the MacPhun apps and a new free app called BeFunky Express. But check back often, as I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more new apps show up there!

Apple Photos for macOS

The What’s New in OS X presentation you get after installing El Capitan shows an extension not listed on the App Store. It’s called Affinity Retouching (see screenshot below). The Affinity Photo app is listed on the App Store but not in the Editing Extensions for the Photos App section. Maybe they’ll add the extension ability to the photo app or maybe it’s a new app yet to be released.

Found the answer to my previous comment in this forum post. Apparently the Photos Extension is part of the next Affinity Photo release and can be found in a beta release of it.


I can see Pixelmator also have an update looming (judging from screenshot)
