Many cameras offer the ability to save raw+jpeg pairs when capturing images. This can be useful if you want a processed version available for easy sharing and a higher-quality raw file in case advanced edits are desired.
When raw+jpeg pairs are imported into Mylio Photos, the app will automatically stack them together so you’re viewing a single version of the image in your Mylio Photos Library.
The Filename field in the Info Panel (inside the Details Panel) displays the file types available for each image. When a raw+jpeg pair is stacked, the filename will be followed by the raw file extension, jpg, and xmp. For example 221201_0002.(arw, jpg, xmp).
Mylio Photos displays the raw version of the raw+jpeg pair by default. If you’d prefer to prioritize the JPEG version in a stack:
- Opent the More menu and choose Settings.
- Select General.
- Toggle the switch next to Prefer RAW when available to the OFF position.
Editing RAW+JPEG Pairs
Editing in Mylio Photos
- If Prefer RAW when available is ON, Mylio Photos will edit the raw file.
- If Prefer RAW when available is OFF, Mylio Photos will edit the JPEG file.
You can adjust this setting from the More menu > Settings > General, then toggle the switch next to Prefer RAW when available.
Editing with an External Editor
Images in Mylio Photos can be edited with a variety of external editors. (Click here to learn more about using external editing apps with Mylio Photos.) To open an image in an external editor, go to the Photo menu in the operating system menu bar, mouse over Open With, then choose the application you’d like to use.
Prior to launching your selected external editor, Mylio Photos will ask which version of a photo you’d like to edit.
- To edit the raw version of your original image, check the box next to Prefer RAW file if available.
- To edit the JPEG version of your original image, uncheck the box next to Prefer raw file if available.
