  1. Under the help menu could you add a check for update button so we know if we are using the most current version of Affinity Photo. Thanks
  2. Would it be possible to export the complete settings used to adjust a RAW file, and then import that one file with the complete settings if you need to re-open that RAW file at a later date with those specific settings. I understand that you can set up presets, but I need to have a complete record of RAW adjustments and then may need to reopen that RAW file with those settings as a starting point for further readjustments. The ability to export those RAW setting upon post production prior to development and then re-import the settings applied to a particular RAW file would save a lot of us the much time spent on writing down all the adjustments made to a particular RAW file so we can reproduce the result. Thank you for your consideration.
  3. PIEstudio is great for viewing multiple images and editing metadata.
  4. I'm interested in knowing how you achieved this result...you did a nice job. Did you use Affinity Photo to achieve this result?
  5. There are two different situations. 1. Preservation from the initial capture device (camera or scanner). 2. Documentation of enhancements. When dealing with a camera, RAW files serve as a digital negative, but if RAW files were not captured it is important to document that these images have not changed so write protecting and Hashing the files after capture is one way to do this. When dealing with image enhancements an audit trail (such as a history file) is important. If you question refers to how to detect image tampering, that is too lengthy of a subject for this forum but a good book on the subject was written by Hany Farid called "Photo Forensics" https://www.amazon.com/Photo-Forensics-Press-Hany-Farid/dp/0262035340 . Also there is a good manual on various techniques at http://metainventions.com/products.html .
  6. Hi Walt...There was a book published years ago called “Photoshop CS3 for Forensic Professionals” it describes how various filters and workflows can be used for forensic work. For example focus stacking is useful in situations where limited depth of field issues arise such as a fingerprint on a highly curved surface. Quite often forensic technicians receive photos of evidence which they didn’t take and subtle details need to be revealed...this is where levels and curves comes in handy. Some fingerprint development techniques involve specific colors from the reagents...color channel separation and color to grayscale often enhance the result of this type of processing. These are just a few examples.
  7. Can you make Save History a preference so I don't have to activate it each time I open a new document. Can you also add the option of exporting the history file as part of the metadata or a side file when saving an image as a jpg or tif; this is extremely important for those of us using your software for forensic work. Photoshop is loosing favor with many of us in the profession and your software is filling that gap. Also kudos on the FFT noise removal it does a great job. Thank you for your consideration.
  8. I am requesting that Affinity Photo add their own adaptive histogram equalization filter. I use a plugin created by Russell Cottrell but it crashes. This filter is extremely useful for artistic and forensic work. Please consider adding this filter as an adjustment layer.
