No RAW thanks, we’re iOS 8

So then. iOS 8 then. Pretty cool, save one thing in particular. No, I’ll not join the ranks of the poor folks who thought that all their photos had been eaten, simply because the album organisation had changed and the camera roll disappeared… I do mean something in the photos app though: it really does not seem to cope at all well with RAW files.

Swiping through an album of .dng files has become a painfully-protracted endeavour. One image moves a little off the screen, and…

Pause for effect…

… Eventually the next image takes its place. Deleting an image takes similar eons.

I haven’t found any mention of this online, but here’s hoping I’m not the only one to notice – and I particularly hope that Apple notice.

And sort it out.
