I take a photograph with my iPhone were does the image go, both the RAW image and the jpeg. Seems like I have to use the Photo app to see these images but i don't know if they are jpegs or raw. They seem to transfer automatically to Photos. Is there a folder on my iMac or my iPhone where these images are stored?
When you import photos into the Photos library on macOS, the images are stored in
~/Pictures/Photos Library.photoslibrary/Masters/ (
~ = user directory)
To access the photos library, navigate to the Pictures folder using Finder and right-click (control + click) the photo library and select
Show Package Contents. After that, open the
Masters folder, and you will see your photos organized in folders by dates.
As far as I know, iPhones support shooting in RAW but not natively through the camera app. Please correct me if I'm wrong in the comments. Always delete photos from the Photos app to avoid corrupting your local photo library.
