Photo Editing Workflow

How to import, edit and publish a photo using Photo Mechanic and Affinity Photo starting with a raw file.

Photo Mechanic

When importing files from the memory card using Photo Mechanic, all imported files are copied into a folder with the date the photo shoot. The files are renamed. e.g. yyyymmdd/khm-yyyymmdd-hhss-10digitnumber.nef. Later on in the post-production, the filename won't change again allowing us to locate the original RAW file anytime.

If we use HDR merge or Focus shifting merge, the resulting file will use the filename of the first shot in the sequence.

Affinity Photo

Use reveal in finder to localize the raw file to be edited. Usually, photo editing is done fast, not more than 15minutes.

All photos are exported to one dedicated folder. This folder is named by the year.

Publishing Photos

High quality photos are published in Unsplash.

All edited photos are published in this website:

Before a photo can be published in muuuh.com, instructions for IMGIX image rendering service may have to be modified. By default, crop instruction "entropy" is used which doesn't work well in all cases. If necessary, entropy is changed to focal point with x and y coordinates.
