OSX Media Browser to Load from Photos

Recommended Posts

Hello

The CB workflow is very clumsy "export original, load in Camerabag, edit, export, re-import into Photos"

If you can't implement the Photos extension, at least please implement the standard OSX  Media Browser to let users pick from Photos

Cheers Robert

Thanks for the feedback!

We would LOVE to have more fully-featured access through Extensions or drag-and-drop ability between Photos and CameraBag (like with Aperture/iPhoto and CameraBag previously); unfortunately, this is related to the new restrictions Apple puts on apps and how they can interact with each other. :(  Our hands are tied until they make some changes on their end.

We'd love for CameraBag users to write Apple and ask them to allow Photos to interact with external photo apps like could be done in iPhoto--rather than insisting apps only interact with Photos through their new Extensions setup. This would allow US to make CameraBag play well with Photos (drag and drop) just like it used to play with iPhoto, which we would happily do if they allowed it. As people have mentioned, it's not hard to do programmatically; it's just Apple's rules preventing us from doing it.

:) If you'd be up for giving Apple feedback on this, you can do it via http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html

Hi guys, please provide the best subject line as well as comments (we should all copy paste), which feedback type/area we should select. 

-We need to send this to the good department.

Thank you! :-)

Here's my suggestion ;)

Subject: Photos workflow with external apps is terrible

Feedback type: Efficiency/workflow

Feedback area: Applications/Utilities

Feedback: The new Photos app is awful for trying to work with anything other than the Photos app itself or incredibly limited extensions. iPhoto was terrible in its own right, but at least you could right-click and open with any external photo application of your choosing. Why have you handicapped Photos to not be able to do this simple thing that would open it up to every existing photo app? This is ludicrous, you've managed to let Windows be so much more powerful and user-friendly than OS X!
