    @walt.farrell, Biff was referring to the new 1.7 video : https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/330446061 by James Ritson.
  2. Similar question & answer, with a little more info:
  3. There is a new RAW Image Extension for Windows 10 that adds "native viewing support for images captured in raw file formats produced by many mid- to high-end digital cameras". Apparently however, CR3 is not among them, also you have to have Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version number 1903), to be able to install the extension. The package was developed by "libraw" open source project. Link: https://www.libraw.org/supported-cameras to view current list.
  4. @HarryBGreat, glad it has been useful.
  5. HarryB: In the link sent yesterday, with respect to the borders, if you want the photo to be a specific size, e.g. for a Projected Display Image competition, it is best to start with a layer that is made up of all the previous visible layers, i.e. left mouse click the top layer, then when highlighted, right click and select “Merge Visible”, which creates a new combined layer. So that the size of the photo is not changed, select the "Alignment" to be "inside"; the "Colour" e.g. white, to isolate the photo from the display background and a suitable thin pixel size. Please see attached image.
  6. No it's not as easy, but have a look at this video on thin border creation - InAffinity: "Creating Outline Border Using Effects (fx) in Affinity Photo", - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=af_tp75MDKQ With the 'problem' borders you have created already, zoom in 150% and see if they are there. Sometimes parts of the border are not displayed accurately, but if you zoom in, they are there.
  7. The problem is knowing what the original RAW file looks like. Most RAW editors will alter the image to 'improve' the basic look of it, otherwise users compare it to PS, PSE etc. which alter the basic RAW file. Also photos viewed on the camera only show a JPG image, even if you have set your camera to RAW only, (the jpg being part of the RAW file). If the "Tone curve" is disabled in the 'Develop Assistant', the resulting image is dull & flat, but the colours are certainly improved from the 1.6 version, please see two images attached. I hope that at least you will persevere with APh. and there are a lot of good people here willing to help.
  8. I have two colour managed, (Xrite i1 Display Pro), Dell screens, U2415 & 2412M. I have taken a photo, with a 'Panasonic Lumix G9' of the two screens with the same image displayed at the same size. The image is a RAW file, (taken with a 'Panasonic Lumix G9'), opened into both programs, without any further adjustment. The left image is using Affinity Photo Beta and the right is using version It actually looks more pronounced on the live screens, the right screen (1.6) is very dull, de-saturated. The left hand photo displays better, however it would be useful to know how much the "Assistant Manager" has been altered between the two versions of software. [I have reduced the size of the jpg file to enable uploading].
  9. Hi RC-R, Thanks for the link to the older correspondence.
  10. Morning cfyckt, Sorry for the delay, (there's probably a substantial time difference in our two locations). As you have probably found out, the easiest way to locate the Beta site is open Affinity Photo, Help>Welcome, then click the "User Forums", (bottom right corner on the welcome dialogue box). Scroll down to Affinity Beta Software Forums>Affinity Photo Beta Forums, click "Photo Beta on Windows", select the appropriate Affinity Photo Windows Customer Beta. Currently [https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/34-photo-beta-on-windows/]. Hope it helps.
  11. Hi cfyckt, have you tried down loading Beta, which has support for the G9?
  12. Hello Dave, thanks for sharing the pdf, really great.
  13. Apologies for late response, (playing catchup). On the DScolour Labs Technical Support webpage is a "Step by Step guide to Editing your image" (- http://dscolourlabs.co.uk/about/Technical_Support), which suggests photos should be edited in sRGB colour working space, softproofed using their Lustre or Gloss profiles, (which can be downloaded & installed). Then if you are happy with the result, to select the appropriate colour profile using "Edit/Convert to Profile". However at http://dscolourlabs.co.uk/about/NEWNEW_Technical_Support, they 'DSC' state "DON'T FORGET TO SAVE YOUR IMAGE IN sRGB AND USE THE CORRECT PAPER PROFILE IF REQUIRED." Which I find confusing.
  14. Thanks owenr, very much appreciated. I understood the assigned profile was to enable consistent viewing on the monitor and shouldn't change the data, but was not sure what happened when exporting. Very succinct answer.
  15. I want to resize a TIFF image to use as a target to test existing printer drivers with a new photo paper, prior to creating a printer profile. The test TIFF image I want to use has no assigned profile, i.e. not sRGB, Adobe 1998 etc. I wish to resize it in Affinity Photo then export it again as a TIFF image. As soon as it is loaded, Affinity adds "Assigned Profile (Adobe 1998)....to this unprofiled document". My question is how can I export it without any colour enhancement being applied? Thanks for any help.
