  1. Actually it has become worse, now it's not a deterministic event after pushing "Sync before", but it randomly occurs any time using develop persona. I have downgraded to 1.6.5, as I can't wait longer for a stable 1.7.x version.
  2. Since I upgraded to 1.7 release version, application always closes when I click on Sync before in Develop Persona. It didn't happen in 1.6, not even in 1.7 beta.
  3. 1. Restore xml based Lensfun camera profile settings, as it was in 1.6, instead of the binary file. Now it's not so many people's problem, but many users will face this problem when 1.7 is released, and auto lens-correction won't work for their cameras/lenses. Without this, I won't upgrade to 1.7. 2. Possibility to save raw settings into file. 3. Some performance improvement could be fine, however it's not as important as 1 and 2.
  4. In Lightroom Classic CC, there is, but you cannot do it in Lightroom CC.
  5. Editing actually happens locally, but you can't edit an image before you import it.
  6. You can download or synchronize the uploaded raw files and their adjustments any time, and if you stop subscription, you don't lose your local files.. However if you want to edit a raw image with Lightroom CC, you have to import it, and importing includes upload to the cloud, and based on your settings, there will be a synchronized copy on your local storage, or it will be cached locally. I'm talkig about Lightroom CC, not about Lightroom CC Classic, they are different applications.
  7. With Lightroom Classic CC and Lightroom 6 you can, but Classic is more expensive, while Lightroom 6 is legacy, that line won't be developed anymore. However with Lightroom CC you have to upload the raws first to the cloud, then edit them, and then, if you want, you can download or export them. Ok, actually on editing, they can be in a shared workspace, but that's not the same, as storing then in your own directory structure. I'm not against cloud storage, but I prefer to store my images locally first, and then upload them to cloud.
  8. Yes, you can, but the subscription that includes Photoshop (and Lightroom Classic) doesn't include a 1 TB cloud, or the one that includes it costs even more. Another possibility is to buy Photoshop Elements, however that's also much more expensive than Affinity Photo, and it has limited functionalities.
  9. There are 2 things I don't like in Lightroom. One of them is the extreme high subscription price (10 dollars = 14,5 dollars in my country), and the other one is that it tries to force me the DAM, while I like to manage my pictures in normal folders. However I'm missing the possibility to save raw adjustments in Affinity Photo.
  10. Now I see, that this is about ZS70. However, this workaround may work with ZS70 too, as it is the successor the cameras I mentioned, and as far as I know, the lens is the same one, at least its specifications are the same.
  11. I had the same problem. Affinity uses Lensfun for lens correction (the same library/database as darktable uses). The problem is that this model was introduced on 3 different model names: TZ71 in Germany, TZ70 in rest of Europe and ZS50 in North America, while TZ60/TZ61/ZS40 also have the same lens, but in Lensfun only TZ71 and TZ61 are associated to this profile, so with other model names autodetection won't work. I know that this question is old, but I copy the solution for it, if anybody else still have the same issue: You have to find the Lens Profiles folder, in Windows it's c:\Program Files\Affinity\Photo\Resources\Lens Profiles\ with the basic installation. In this file add the following to the list of camera profiles: <camera> <maker>Panasonic</maker> <model>DMC-TZ70</model> <mount>panasonicTZ71</mount> <cropfactor>5.58</cropfactor> </camera> This is for TZ70, if you have ZS40, ZS50 or TZ60, then add that model name into <model></model> tag.
  12. I basically started to use Affinity for raw processing. I know that it's a Photoshop like application and not a Lightroom like application, but I found Lightroom subscription extremely expensive, especially in my country (10 dollars = 10 euros, and in addition, we have the highest VAT in Europe, it means the cheapest monthly subscription is about 14.5 dollars), while most of the free alternatives (Ratherapee, darktable, etc.) are very slow on Windows. There is one free alternative, Lightzone, which was almost good for me, but its contrast settings are too time consuming for me. Earlier I used Canon DPP, but now I have a Panasonic compact camera, and the free version of Silkypix Studio is very slow and illogical. I'm satisfied with Affinity Photo's raw development functionalities, I find it the third best after Lightroom and Canon DPP among the ones I tried, but I'm missing the feature to save raw file settings. I already saved some presets for noise reduction/details and also for lens correction, and I mostly change only basic settings for the whole image, so after all I can save and use a temporary basic presets if images are similar. I also use local adjustments, but those are different for each picture. However after I'm finished, I would like the possibility to save settings, because sometimes I rethink the same picture in the future, and also sometimes I have an idea when I'm processing the last picture in a series, and I would apply it for the previous ones, but in this case I should start it again...
