  1. According to Pixeluvo's website there isn't a Linux version!
  2. I've had intermittent problems with an SD card - it was amazing how the only times it failed were when the shot mattered! I haven't had to apply it yet, but since then I've had a zero tolerance policy towards card failures. Rather than formatting the card in your camera, try using the SD Card Association's formatter on yourMac - the error checking is more extensive.
  3. This has been discussed before and my recollection is that the majority of users don't want that. Personaly, once I get to the point of exporting my images I want them all in a single location, ready to move onto the next stage - having them scattered around with the source files would be a pita!
  4. I doubt that Affinity Photo, or any other software that uses LibRaw, will have support for the GH6 anytime soon. Adobe's DNG converter now supports the GH6 so that's probably your best option at the moment.
  5. I'm confused - exporting isn't available in the develop persona, and you can't switch to the export persona (or any other) without developing the image first. Why do you have to do it now? Aside from the file size being much smaller than expected is there something wrong with the exported image? Sorry, more confusion! If you're starting with a RAW file and then saving, the output file will be .afphoto and much bigger then the source file so I'm not sure what you mean by "the same result".
  6. Hi @Fixfocus and welcome to the forums. As I've already mentioned in this thread the timing's down to Libraw, not Serif. Using Adobe's DNG converter might provide a workround, but the the GH6 wasn't supported when I last looked about a week ago. Adobe's last update was in February, and they usualy work on a 90 day release cycle. I've no way of knowing how accurate it is, but it's rumoured that Panasonic changed the GH6 firmware shortly before the camera went on sale and this is causing delays. Libraw's release cycle is longer and is much more influenced by public demand. If you're going to try crossing your fingers I think you'll end up with very painful hands!
  7. Not going to happen! Serif, along with many others, use LibRaw to provide RAW support so the timing's out of their control. Adobe seem to have much closer links with the camera manufacturers and will probably always be quicker to offer support for new formats but they're not there yet.
  8. The uploaded file's in the linked post included by @NotMyFault
  9. Intesting indeed! I think it's good news because it would imply that AP can do something to downclock the GPU.
  10. What happens if you open and then exit (e.g.) a game when the gpu clock is in an elevated state?
  11. As of a couple of minutes ago the Panasonic GH6 wasn't supported by Adobe's DNG converter - it will probably be several months before LibRaw (and hence AP) supports it.
  12. I could easily be misremembering, but didn't some Radeon users have problems with their GPUs downclocking while they were gaming? Is it possible that the card's been configured to prevent this, and stays locked?
  13. I don't see Win 11 driving people away, and certainly not into the arms of Linux. I know one person who's "upgraded", and he's monumentaly unimpressed - everyone else is ignoring it. fwiw my guess is that MS will extend the support period for Win 10 and hope that the number of people who can't use 11 drops enough that they can be ignored.
  14. As I said, I'm not a Mac user so I don't know much about Time Machine. A good backup system will enable you to recover from the total destruction of your computer, and it will enable you to recover individual files that may have been "corrupted" months ago. It may be that your best option is to use more than one program. Sorry, I know even less about that.
  15. As @carl123 said, set up regular backups, and test them. Modern drives use SMART to check that they're working ok. I'm not a Mac user so I can't recommend any software but there must be something you can download to perform regular health checks.
  16. That makes sense! I wouldn't normally use APub just to print a file, but I was using it for something else so it seemed like a good idea at the time. Again, that would make sense - I shouldn't be able to make changes to my tickets.
  17. Printing the doc isn't a problem - the question is, why doesn't Affinity let me do it while everything else does?
  18. I tried printing a PDF doc from all 3 apps but get the message "This document does not allow printing" and the file is shown as being locked. The file contains theatre tickets (they're supposed to be printed) and nothing else is having a problem. What's occurring?
  19. A problem with full sky replacement is that the reflections in the water look wrong. It's possible to create your own, but you'll probably get better results by cloning, inpainting etc.
  20. All university cities, and we all know that university students are too poverty stricken to buy software and therefore producing Linux versions wouldn't be commercialy viable. 😉
  21. True, and probably better in this case, but I usualy like a "soft" border between sharpened and unsharpened areas. I should probably learn how to feather selections!
