“One of my favourite improvements in El Capitan, Photos now lets you apply third-party image editing extensions within the application,” Jonny Evans writes for Computerworld.
“These improve the built-in editing functionalities of Photos, helping you achieve far more with your images,” Evans writes. “Developer MacPhun says extensions support in Photos means ‘Apple’s app will finally get close to Aperture or Lightroom with its editing capabilities.'”
Introducing the first few extensions to arrive at the Mac App Store:
• BeFunky Express
• Affinity Photo
Evan writes, “Apple has published a website page to explain use of third-party extensions in Photos for OS X, and these make it pretty clear that other developers (including Pixelmator and DxO Optics) have been looking into supporting this feature – keep an eye on the Mac App Store for more releases in future.”
