    Well after upgrading this app is a little on the weak side for post editing. I tried a demo of the Macphun Kit and found it much more useable. When playing around with the demo it showed a list of available apps that it can be installed into as a plugin, Mac Photos App was not on the list. Is the kit designed to be used as a standalone, I did see an extensions option in the Photos app so it appears it can be used this way. For some reason the Demo ver did not have the app in the list. Thanks for any info on this, appreciate your help.

    You can greatly tart up Photos with extensions from Macphun, DxO Optics, and others. But fundamentally Photos will never be the powerhouse that Aperture was. If you want serious editing capabilities, look at Lightroom, Capture 1 Pro, or Affinity.

    I am downloading a 10 day free trial of Affinity and give it a run.
