I always shoot RAW+JPEG and am trying out Mylio to see if it will work for me. There is already a lot to like, and one of my absolute requirements is that an app handles RAW+JPEG images as a pair instead of displaying them separately. Mylio does this, which is great.
However, as has already been noted in Preview quality when RAW file is present, in the free version Mylio displays the RAW version of all pairs with no way to tell it to display the JPEG version instead. I don’t have an issue with the quality of the image, as my camera is supported. But what is an issue for me is that I really like the JPEG processing in my camera, and seeing the JPEG versions is important for my process of selecting which images to keep (and how to rate them).
It causes further issues, because there’s no easy way to share the JPEG version from Mylio (I can
Show in Finder and then select the JPEG version from the folder in the Finder and share from there, but I can’t share it directly from within Mylio). As a side effect, it also means that in the free version of Mylio, there is no way to edit the JPEG of a RAW+JPEG pair.
My ideal setup would be:
- Set Mylio to display JPEG from pairs by default (I gather this is currently possible if on a paid plan)
- Have a mechanism for toggling which version of a pair is displayed for an individual or several photos (e.g. an item in the
Photomenu called something like
Prefer [RAW|JPEG]) – I don’t think this is currently possible even with a paid plan?
As I say, I generally want to display the JPEG version, but in some cases I do prefer the RAW (or want to edit the RAW and create my own JPEG).
