  1. You're right, I had manually typed in the general format I use. Obviously I had one too many zeroes.
  2. For image renaming I use the YYYY_MMDD_HHMMSS_SSS format. For example if I were to take a photo right now when the local time is 08:30 pm I'd rename the image to be 2021_0413_2030000_000.ext Where of course .ext would be the file extension of your image. By renaming my images that way they're always sorted in the order they were taken which is what I want. I'm not suggesting this would be the best way for you to rename images but it's the best way for my needs. To do the renaming, and to do everything else involving organization, I use IMatch. It's not free but it's ver
  3. Thanks Walt and Alfred, that explains it. Just threw me off for a moment.
  4. I don't know about the problem you had but I've noticed with 1.9 that when I edit a TIF and export it as a JPG the export save as dialog says it's exporting the image as an Affinity file. It seems to be a JPG though but I find this to be rather misleading. See attached.
  5. The way I would do it using Affinity Photo would be to select the background layer, draw your selection on the part of the image you want to blur, then go to Menu > Layer > New Live Filter Layer > Blur > Gaussian Blur.
  6. I applied a small amount of capture sharpening in the Develop Persona then in the Photo Personal I applied the final sharpening. Most of my Affinity Photo settings are defaults including the raw engine (Serif).
  7. Just for a point of comparison I downloaded the provided CR2 file and opened it in Affinity Photo, developed it, made some minor edits to it in Photo Persona, then I exported it as a TIF. It looked ok to me. Then without editing anything else I converted it to JPG format to reduce the file size and have uploaded it here.
  8. After you have resized the image did you go to Menu > View > Zoom > 100% (CTRL + 1 on Windows) To show the image at its new full size?
  9. I've been using IMatch since 2006 it does everything you're asking for plus a whole lot more. https://www.photools.com/ For what it's worth I have almost 130,000 photos in my database.
  10. The closest I can come to using a macro in the Develop persona is to have several different presets configured, presets that do different things.
  11. My pleasure Callum thanks for responding. I have attached a short recording. John Clipping Disappears with Saturation Change.wmv
  12. Using the latest 1.7.2 version of Affinity Photo I think I may have found a bug in the Develop Persona. Using a DNG raw file, maybe other raw formats too but I'm using DNGs, if I have highlight and shadow clipping enabled I can see the highlight and shadow clipping as expected when I adjust the exposure and blackpoint sliders. However if I change the saturation adjustment from 0 to any other amount the clipping indicators for highlights and shadows disappear altogether. Midtone clipping still shows however. Can someone please verity this? Thanks John
  13. Thank you for the responses. PÅ¡enda I usually need to make manual corrections. Firstdefence that's good to know about 1.7 I'll be looking forward to it.
  14. Greetings all, New user here, I purchased Affinity Photo a month ago and have been thoroughly enjoying this software. It fits in beautifully with my old workflow when I was using Lightroom and Photoshop. That said, there's one thing I find a little frustrating. In the Develop Persona I toggle the grid overlay on/off quite often as I make lens corrections and I never know what to expect when the grid appears. Most of the time I have to go to the Grid and Axis manager to manually set the grid for the image I'm working on. My images are all DNG format, is there a way to set the
