  1. Are the cropping issues reported in these threads fixed in 1.8? I don't see them mentioned in the changelogs for 1.8 (or unfortunately 1.7.3). Id love to use the new version, but I've gone back to 1.6.5 as the cropping problems make the newer version a no-go:
  2. I run a lot of batch conversions, but typically from afphoto files, and I havent noticed that. My workflow typically goes: Canon DPP to convert RAW to TIFF (16 bit), then batch convert in AP to afphoto, edit, then convert to JPEG. If you have Canon DPP available, Id convert a RAW file there, then see if the batch processor changes exposure. If it doesnt, then bug confirmed.
  3. There have been a lot of changes to the crop tool in 1.7 (I lost my presets too, and the presets in 1.7 don't work like I need them to either). The way you (and I) used the presets, the new tool wants to be set to "unconstrained", which in 1.7 wont let you save as a preset. Hopefully they are working on it, but If you need things to work like before, you may have to roll back to 1.6.5, which I plan on doing for now since I have some jobs coming up and I need it to just work! I wish we could install them side by side, because other than this, the performance of 1.7 is quite good. Note: Any afphoto file you save in 1.7 cant be edited by older versions, keep that in mind if you roll back.
  4. Ah yes, thats what I need, an Absolute preset. I had quite a few in 1.6.5, they do make the editing process easier.
  5. Seconded, I'm missing this as well in 1.7.2. Hopefully in the next update, I really don't want to have to roll back to 1.6.5 for a second time; I really do enjoy the performance of the new version, but for a large image set, the crop tool without my presets would just really slow me down.
  6. After looking at it a bit more, I understand what the option should do, I think the confusion comes in is from the guide "behavior". If you select resample and change the entries by keying, the guides dont move like they did in 1.6 to show you the end result. Custom ratio moves the guides, but not in a way that makes any sense, "the ratio" is in pixels, and the guides dont really show you what the results will be. The only option that works as I expect is Unconstrained, but it wont let me save that as a preset! Thats the option Id use the most in my edits when cropping, so thats now a bit of a time sink in 1.7.
  7. Sure, see attached. The numbers change, but the guides do not. I also noticed while doing this, that the crop tool seems to select the previously selected size automatically (see the History list on the second image, It already says Apply Preset. I had to roll it back). Its the exact same behavior I noted in a previous beta version (see posts), which was fixed, but now it seems off again.:
  8. I think a bug from has returned, I just upgraded from 1.6.5 to 1.7.2, and recreated a few crop presets that arent carried over during the upgrade, but none of them actually do anything. This is a repeat of the bugs reported in these threads: [Fixed] User Created Crop Tool Presets have no effect - The user created crop presets dont seem to work properly
  9. I'm curious, what was the behavior of the Crop Tool in 1.6.5. Did cropping also resample the image? Also, I noticed that you cant save Unconstrained Crop sizes as Presets in Is that by design?
  10. Well, its probably not that critical. If I still have the issue after reinstalling 1.7, Ill record it then. I just imported the settings from the most recent beta because there was no other way to get my presets I had saved in 1.6 into 1.7.
  11. Ill have to install 1.7 again to give it another shot. Re: deleting the presets, Im not trying to delete the built in presents, I was trying to delete the imported presets (Presets that I created in the 1.7 Beta). It wouldn't let me do it. Perhaps Ill have to recreate them all manually. If you want to try it, Ill attach them to this post. DRP Prints.aftoolpresets DRP Sizes.aftoolpresets
  12. The User Created Crop Presets seem to be broken again, its an issue that was resolved in the Beta. I imported my presets from the Beta (The ones I had in 1.6.5 didn't seem to survive the upgrade to 1.7), but when you click on the presets, the behavior is the same as mentioned in the below thread. I was going to delete them and recreate them, but it wont let me do that either, the delete option is grayed out.
  13. I hate to revive a dead topic, but has any progress been made on this? DXO Film Pack 5 still crashes 1.6.5 and the 1.7 Beta. It would definitely be a workflow improvement if we didn't have to use Film Pack separately.
  14. I've noticed it happens most often if you are using the Crop Tool and Original Ratio Mode, and you happen to land on a ratio that involves rounding { i.e. 5280.5 px x 3520.3333333333 px). Its not something I typically do, since I just set up presets for my most used 3:2 crop sizes and all of those are round numbers, but once in a while I would move the size manually in Original Ratio mode which isn't always round. Once I figured that out, I added more presets.
  15. The built in presets seem to work fine, but the custom presets don't behave as expected. The crop tool guide lines either dont move at all, or in some cases get far larger than expected. The number change to whatever was saved in the preset, but the guide lines dont match the settings.
  16. I created some commonly used crop sizes using the new preset tool, however, when trying to apply them to images, the crop tool size does not change. I've attached the exported presets if that helps. Also, if you have a long list of presets, the scroll bar jumps to the next category, which makes it hard to access the bottom of the custom list. I had to break up my category into two groups. Finally, I noticed that when changing crop dimensions, the unit of measure resets to pixels no matter what unit of measure you have selected.

  17. I recently had the same issue (unfortunately about 100 images in to a 200 image editing session), I fixed it using the info in this post: Apparently if ExifTool creates its temp files and fails to clean them up, it wont run again until you delete them yourself. Deleted the "par" directory, and Affinity Photo was back to normal operation. Hopefully a check can be implemented in the future, but if not Ill just be diligent about making sure that the EXIF data is there during editing. (Because realizing its missing after the fact sucks just a little bit)
