Yes well I got a bit confused here. So basically Pixelmator Photo is not a non destructive workflow like the way Lightroom handles RAW data. Playing around with the app I see I can not export as RAW and having read some of the Posts and answers I think that is correct.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

I do like the application and its fun to work with. I don’t really need a explanation. Maybe I should not have posted even.
So its a Photo Editor that can work with RAW files.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not criticizing the application, why would I, and am happy I can export to TIIF 16 bit and work from there in other applications to get the results I am after. It will have its place in my workflow.

Hey Frank, I think you've understood everything correctly! Just to reiterate, RAW is an unprocessed, read-only format that's used only for developing photos, once that's done, you'd always export them to another format in order to share the finished image.
