Edit with Capture One not working from Apple Photos

    I would suggest you "submit a request" to C1 devs as it's their part to make the app compatible to Apple Photos.

    But I don't.

    First, Apple loves to kill their own photo apps, so why waste energy and resources to support an unreliable future? Because the next question would be to support Windows photo viewer...

    Second, each iPhone generation comes with new gimmicks certain users want to support for. But C1 devs are already struggling to keep their long time clients happy with support of new cameras.

    Third, when I open Apple photos and like to edit a certain picture, the choices are already very wide - and very "why opening it straight in another app when you can add some extra corners to click around?" The variety of RAW-Power, Affinity Photo, Pixelmator, Iridient, PhotoLine is already more than I need.

    Maybe you're better off with searching for a dedicated smartphone app? Or why not ask Apple, as they are the "inventor of the iPhone"? I'm sure they can't wait to throw out another new photo app because Apple Photos is already more than 5 years old and needs retirement soon... [/sarcasm]

    If one wished to send an image to C1 for editing from an external application (not something I have tried) does one have to ensure one has an open C1catalog or session running prior to the request?

    If not, how does C1 deal with such a request? Start up and open a session? Open the requested image in a new session?

    I may see if I have anything that will try to use C1 as an external editor when I have today's priority tasks out of the way.

    Right click on an image in finder and scroll down to Open With...  Select Capture One.   Capture One will launch to the catalog/session selection window.  After all, it doesn't know where you want the image.  If you select a Catalog the catalog will open.   But... Capture One seems to have forgotten that that you want to do something with a specific image.

    If Capture One is already launched with a Catalog Open using "Open With..." in Finder will initiate the Import window in Capture One for the selected images.  This does not surprise me as I use a variation of Open With... (drag and drop) to import images into capture one on a normal basis.   I use referenced images and never import directly from memory card.

    Interesting Marco. Thanks for saving me some time checking all of the options. 

    I may try sessions later if I have time.

     

    Also "Edit With". I can imagine there might need to be some assumptions about the source and the requirement if one was to try "Edit With" from another application.

    In addition to that, in the OP's case, is the question about what the DNG file offers that C1 will be able to use to pick a specific camera profile rather than apply a generic DNG profile or simply do nothing because it cannot identify or recognise the file. Which, I suppose, is a possibility.

    Right click on an image in finder and scroll down to Open With...  

    The question was 

    It syncs to Photos which I can preview on my computer. Ideally I would be able to "Edit with Capture One"  from Photos but that seems to not be working. 

    No finder involved, Marco.

    Apple Photos is not picky, just C1 is hiding... But with Excire it's the same. And the Finder is a huge deviation ("open package", then navigate to the picture with a cryptic name and only then "open with" becomes possible) and basically what Steve Jobs didn't want to be the user experience.

    I was using Finder as an example of what might happen if Photos did list Capture One.  Finder uses the information provided by Capture One in its application property list to determine the applications that are listed in the Open with... menu.   The fact that Capture One is there shows that macOS knows that Capture One can edit certain file types.  I did see that the Capture One property list is structured different from most other apps.  Perhaps that is the difference.

    ("open package", then navigate to the picture with a cryptic name and only then "open with" becomes possible)

    I don't understand that.   Nowhere in my tests did I see anything about a package or cryptic names.  Please explain.

    Stephen wants to open his iPhone RAWs, collected and synchronized in Apple Photos, in Capture One. As there's no link to C1 visible in my version of Photos, the only way to do is

    1. navigate to the Photos database in finder or search for ".photoslibrary"
    2. then "open package" as it appears to be one file, but that file is the catalog and the included images
    3. navigate to the image you like to edit with C1 – good luck with the cryptic filenames
    4. now you can use finder to open this image in  C1

    But what's the point?

    Got it.  We were answering different parts of the same question.  My answer was more in line with "even if Photos let you open in Capture One Capture One doesn't do what you'd expect".   To demonstrate that I opened an image that wasn't in the Photos library using Finder's Open With

    Thanks for clarifying, Marco. Yes, Capture One would not "just do the job", I didn't even come to this point. In a way I can understand - plugins in C1 also need an exported file to do something with, as do all "open with" apps in Apple photos. They don't extend tools of the hosting app, they want an export and then go from there.

    C1 would need to provide an extension for Photos. I'd love to have the ability of making edits in C1 but store in Photos.
