Discuss Photomator and photo editing.
I also waiting for this!
The current hard link to Photos makes Photomator a bit of a hard sell for prosumer/professional types -- or at least the ones who shoot larges bursts.
Isn't it possible to create multiple Photos libraries on same computer? Plus it is also possible to not have them sync online. It is not a requirement. And libraries can exist on an external hard drive as well. Wouldn't that solve the issue at least partly?Just wanted to put another vote in for this feature. Being able to create separate "catalogs" or "libraries" that are completely separate from Apple Photos (like Lightroom Classic) is the last thing stopping me from switching from LR to Photomator!
For us photographers shooting RAW files with cameras with big sensors, we are working with a TON of data. It simply makes no sense to put these RAW files in the Apple Photos library and get the RAW files synced to our iCloud. We would run out of the 2TB iCloud storage (which is the maximum we can get) in no time.
The Photos apps is also where many of us store our casual, daily iPhone snapshots and screenshots. We wouldn't want to mix RAW files for clients and businesses into our personal Photos library.
I saw that Simon from Pixelmator said this is would only take a few months' time to develop? That gives me hope! I look forward to seeing this feature
I thought this would be a great temporary workaround but when I created a new Photos library, Photomator still somehow defaulted to the original library and there doesn't seem to be a way to choose any other library. Unless I'm missing something?
