  1. just to let you know I tried the 3700X I get 16 threads : 16 photos at the same time. Impressive ! cannot wait for 128 threads machines
  2. I have a classic SSD 500Mb/s Your 2700 is batching 16 images at the same time ? It's 8 core/16 threads ? Pretty cool Never thought about the scratch disk. Do we have feature request ? I'll go for an NVME for OS/Apps Just to boost affinity batching processes. But yes being able to just select a scratch disk will be easier (and cheaper).
  3. Hi, I m about to build a workstation. My main use will be photo batch processing. Will affinity Photo take advantage of Ryzen 3000 multi core and L3 cache aka Gamecache ? Right now I use a i7 6700K with 4 cores 8 threads, SATA SSD, 32 RAM @ 3200c16. hen I batch process photos I see affinity photo opening 8 photos at the same time, starting to apply 8 process... then it slow downs a bit but still try to open 8 photos at a time.... 1. I m assuming 1 thread = 1 photo ? Ryzen 3000 goes like this : 3600 / 3600x = 6 cores 12 threads with 34 Mb of L3 cache 3700x / 3800x = 8 cores 16 threads with 35 Mb of L3 cache 3900x = 12 cores 24 threads with 70Mb of L3 cache 3950x = 16 cores 32 threads. with 70Mb of L3 cache (not sure about this one) I will go with an NVME SSD, 32 RAM with low latency... but unsure about the CPU : 2. So should I assume I will get this results ? 3600 / 3600x = 12 photos processing at the same time 3700x / 3800x = 16 photos processing at the same time 3900x = 24 photos processing at the same time 3950x = 32 photos processing at the same time -I would like a confirmation that parallel batch processing scale with the cores. 3. Will more L3 cache with the 3900x or 3950x speed up the process ? 4. I would LOVE to have benchmark on this. Is Serif going to get some Ryzen 3000 when it's out the 7/7/2019 ? 5. As for GPU I will go with the Nvidia Super serie. I have no idea if affinity on windows work faster with nvidia or AMD ? Since the OsX version is working on intel and AMD.... so far it's responsive with my GTX... So I guess it will be no problem ? Regards
  4. As the title says I would like to be able to Export Publisher work to a Responsive HTML format. Speaking of.... maybe its possible with Photo or Designer ? Could not find it.
  5. Hi, I really like the develop persona. Since an affinity "lightroom/capture One" killer do not exist : I would like to be able to use it on several RAW files at the same time like what you can do with camera raw. That way I could process thousands of pictures. Also I would like to be able to use macro to record the develop persona (it will open up so much possiblities) or used previously saved develop persona settings. --- Not being able to develop large collections of photo make me use third party software before I can rely on affinity Photo macros to process my work.
  6. Thank you for your answers. As I need this feature for production and "prices" informations are critical I will wait for a proper release. I will follow the thread. At the same time I sent example on affinity facebook page so hopefully they can understand it better. Going to read affinity infos right away !
  7. Hi I make commercial brochures. Its very usual to have different versions of the same brochures. All the informations stay the same and only a few things change : languages, prices Indesign process : -I make my pages using a Layer 0 with things that are displayed on every versions of my document. -I add language 1 on a layer 1, language 2 on layer 2 ect.... and If course I can mix tings : like 3 different languages, 3 different prices and, 2 collections of photos. So if I need a specific version of my document, I check layer 0 and layer 1 = get version 1 I check layer 0 and layer 2 = get version 2 ---- The way layers work in publisher is like photo or designer. It works BUT if I want to "activate" a version I have to turn ON or OFF layers on EVERY pages.... thats a lot of work plus its prone to errors (I may miss something). I understand that layers in publisher and in indesign are not the same thing at all. indesign is global and publisher much more like a affinity photo layer on a page basis. --- So I would like to request a "global" layer (or what ever way to do it) that can affect every pages of the document. --- Feel free to ask questions if you need to.
  8. Hi, I'm an indesign veteran. Ready to make the jump to publisher but there is one thing I don't know how to do: I have one document that changes every 6 months. So basically its the same document and only a few items change (texts + pictures + prices). Here is how I do it in indesign to minimize the errors. Get several layers with my basics "hard" informations that will never change. Get a layer on top with informations for my version 1 Get a layer on top with informations for my version 2 If I need to display version 1 I activate my hard layers + version 1 (version 2 is OFF) If I need to display version 2 I activate my hard layers + version 2 (version 1 is OFF) When I activate a "layer" in indesign, informations will change on all pages at the same time. --- How would you replicate this behavior in Publisher ? I understand that layers in publisher very much work like into af photo, in indesign its less precise BUT make it possible to change several pages in one click. I hope someone has an idea :)
  9. This is a good news. Do you know the raodmap for this fix ?
  10. I had the exact same problem during beta. Devs said they found the problem but it's still there even after update. DNG are dark when opening with Affinity Photo 1.3.5 https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/29346596/DNG%20pb.jpg original file : https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/29346596/DSC_0772.dng This is a critical problem. I cannot use AF Photo like that.
  11. No answer from Serif ? it's ok if its not on top of your list but please add that on your roadmap.
  12. I'm working with this tool for years. I'm not yet convinced that it's a different version (I might be wrong). I'm part of a photoshop official club we were invited at Adobe headquarters and had a short explanation about how it works. They said it's based on photoshop "operator" (just under apply image) witch is adding/ substracting values. The same ways "blending" is working in fact all the colors tools are based on simple "operations" I know that for sure because I had once a demo of photoshop 1 (the very first version) and I was able to do the exact same apply image result with photoshop "operator" only. I guess we are stucked yet, some dev at Serif must have a close look. I really believe they can recreate the tool, they made Frequency sepraration tool, it's based on apply image technology. Affinity photo is young, room for improvement. :) I appreciate your help Coranda. Have a nice week-end.
  13. Thank you for your help Coranda. I guess we cannot do it yet. Is there a way we could send our discoveries to someone at Serif?

    apply image missing

    I'm on the same boat. It's an expert tool. but it's a MUST HAVE. if it's not included I guess I will have to go back to photoshop. There is no substitute for apply image. I hope they do something because at the moment I cannot do an edit 100% in affinity :(
