I'm transitioning to using Photos.app on both iOS and OS X - with the intention to use iCloud Photo Library...
Before making this change I had to move a bunch of photos off an iPhone to free up space. I did so using Image Capture on the Mac - and I've ended up with
.JPGs paired with
.AAEs (the latter, as I understand it, containing the image edits).
(So, I moved the photos off the iPhone to a folder on a Mac, duplicated on external disk, did a back up, then deleted the images on the iPhone)
I've read this Q&A with tells of a method to use a python script to apply of the filters to the corresponding images.
What I'd like to know: is it possible to import both the
.JPG files and
.AAE files so that the original image is still available in Photos? E.g. so that the revert option would still be available...
