What is SMAWL?

SMAWL is a handy tool that helps you manage and optimize your RAW photos on your device.

RAW photos have large file sizes, especially with devices like the iPhone 14 Pro capable of capturing high-resolution 48-megapixel images. While RAW photos can be helpful when shooting and editing, you may not always want or need the original files once you’re done. These files can take up a significant amount of storage space on your device and in the cloud.

Using SMAWL, you can browse your RAW photo album, compress photos using JPEG or HEIC, and delete the original RAW images to free up storage space. It’s easy to use and helps you keep your device organized and running smoothly. In short, SMAWL is the perfect solution for optimizing your RAW photos and maximizing storage space.
