    Working on raw image, starting with “magic wand” as suggested, “Raw Processing” is not enabled on every image.
    What this means?
    Why “Raw Processing” is not enabled by default on any raw image when we are starting editing it?

    RAW processing is available for any unadjusted RAW image. However, if the image was adjusted by Photos or Photos extension, then you will be editing the JPEG that was provided by that other editor. If it was edited with RAW Power, then you also will have access to RAW Processing. One way to tell the situation is to see if the app offers “Revert to Original” when you first open it. If so, then the image was previously edited (by some app, including RAW Power).

    Hi Nik.
    I was talking about untouched raw images. Most of the time Magic Wand are not enabling Raw Processing. Is this means that on that image Raw Power is starting working on embedded jpg?
    Which is not what we’ll try to work on?
    What’s happening when we’ll open an untouched raw image without enabling Raw Processing?
    This is the specific case I’m trying to talk.
    That’s why I think Raw Processing should be enabled by default when opening Adjust on untouched raw image, or can be invisible like Depth on untouched jpg image.
    I’m very happy with the power of RawPower, but sometimes it is an little bit confusing for me.
    Thank you Nik

    RAW Processing should always appear on any RAW image. If it doesn’t, then it’s a bug. Can you email me at support@gentlemencoders.com so we can work through this problem?

    Hi, a kind of newbie to Raw Power here, I was also about to ask about this in a fresh article, but saw this one first.

    I’m using a new iPad Pro, and working on migrating over from Lightroom to Photos + Raw Power, very impressed so far, but I have also noticed that it’s a bit random whether the Raw editing module is activated or not. It’s probably 50% of images not getting it applied using Auto Enhance (whether applied as a batch process, or individually).

    iPadOS 13.6, iPad 12.9” 2020

    Also happens the same on the MacOS version too (macOS 10.15.6, Raw Power v3.0.4).

    Just thought I’d submit as a ‘me too’ effort.

    Cheers

    Hi and welcome!

    If you are asking why the RAW Processing adjustment is not affected by Auto Enhance, that is normal behavior. Auto Enhance examines the image for many characteristics, one of which is over exposure. When it detects that the image is overexposed (has many pixels that are greater than 1.0), then it uses features of the RAW Processing adjustment to correct the overexposure. However, for well exposed (or underexposed) images, it tends not to do anything with the RAW Processing adjustment. That said, it could be smarter about underexposure, and could move the black point slider – I’ll make a note of that.

    Thanks for the reply Nik, sorry I think I misunderstood the original issue here.

    Thank you for clarifying that though, I wasn’t sure if it should be enabled for all rows or not, but that makes sense. Adding a bit of black point adjustment would be certainly useful.

    Generally though, I do find the Auto Enhance works pretty well, only a few extra tweaks needed most of the time. As you say though, it does seem to be underexposed images that need the most extra adjustments.

    Cheers

    Andy.
