    If lack of actual editing tools is the problem with Photos, Raw Power may be of interest. It integrates with Photos and provides a much more capable set roof tools. It’s available for Catalina and iPads too so could be a nice free option. If I weren’t invested in Lightroom I think this would be my choice along with Affinity Photo for the trickier bits,

    You can find it here https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/raw-po...57116444?mt=12

    Thanks for that. I had looked at the retroactive app and downloaded it but although it identifies certain Apple apps on my machine it doesn't identify Aperture for some reason. I've given up on it for now. At the moment I don't want to get involved with LR.

    This may also be of interest if you want to use LR or Photos

    Not a Mac user but seem to recall reading something about an application called retroactive that gets Aperture running on Catalina

    Apple's Aperture- An alternative needed

    As anyone who uses Apple's Aperture will know it is incompatible with Apple's latest operating system, Catalina, which uses 64 bit technology as opposed to the 32 bit of previous systems. Having used Aperture extensively for a number of years I've built up a considerable library of photos but it means that if I want to upgrade to Catalina then I can't use it anymore. Yes I can migrate to Apple Photo but it's not the same and it means having to start again. I know that EOS magazine likes to use Canon DPP but if I chose to use it instead of Aperture how exactly would I go about it and how would I migrate all my photos onto it. The subject of alternative photo software hasn't been discussed in the magazine so far so perhaps this could be explored in a comprehensive article in the near future.
