Question: Use RAW as original - bulk apply or default setting?

Is there a way to edit RAW files by default in Photos on OSX? Or apply the "Use RAW as original" setting in bulk? I've got over several hundred photos to edit and I don't want to have to manually apply to to each photo every time if possible.

nope - it is one by one - you can tell Apple what new features you want - Product Feedback - Apple


If you only want to use RAW then you can solve this and save some disk space by only shooting RAW rather than RAW + JPEG -- o you can use image capture to download the photos and then only import the ones you want to Photos

The problem is, that the RAW commands are only available in EDIT mode. You have to view the photo enlarged, and only then you can switch between RAW and JPEG a the master image.

You can stay in Edit mode and use the arrow keys to get to the next image.


But it is not possible, to select several photos ar once to switch to the RAW file as the original.

Even an AppleScript does not have the ability to switch between the two master files.

You could try to delete the JPEGS from your RAW&JPEG pairs by reimporting them: Deleting RAW files from RAW&JPEG pairs in Photos for Mac
