    Hi Nik,

    Is there a way to add an alternative Mac OSX photo library; i.e., not the system photo library, to the RAW Power 3 app? I converted my old Aperture library to this alternative library before Catalina dropped, and now trying to figure out if I can use it from Raw Power 3.

    RAW Power 3 looks slick btw.

    Thanks,
    Sun

    Hi Sun,

    Right now, there is no way for RAW Power to open any library other than the current system photo library. This is a limitation of macOS [I can ask to open “THE library”, but not “a library of my choosing”].

    That said, you can change which library is the System Photo Library in Photos preferences, so you can switch it in Photos first, and then open RAW Power.

    Another way to manage multiple libraries (especially when dealing with iCloud) is to create a separate user on your Mac. The iCloud library might be one user and the non-iCloud library might be a different user. You can switch between users faster than you can switch between libraries!
