    Meta Data Missing Beta 1.7.0.284

    Ran into a problem testing on the Mac laptop. I downloaded and installed the Mac beta. However, every time I opened the .tif file in Affinity Photo Beta the application would simply shutdown without a message. So, what I ran the test using the latest released version of Affinity Photo for the Mac and got the same results as I got yesterday with the Windows beta version. I have uploaded the files from the Mac test. I used the same raw file used in the Windows test but just changed the name of the file to start with the word Mac and followed the same steps I followed under Windows. I have removed the beta copy of Affinity Photo from my Mac laptop. Hope this help. Peace Marvin

    Meta Data Missing Beta 1.7.0.284

    I just uploaded the files from Windows 10. I am setting up my Mac laptop and will make sure I use the same versions of the PhotoLab 2 and Affinity Photo to run the same test on the same Nikon .NEF file. The only change I'll make is to change the name of the files to include the word "Mac" in the file name. Thanks Peace Marvin
  3. Camera: Nikon D7100 Operating System: Windows 10 with latest updates MetaData (Camera and Lens info) missing after Export from AP Beta 1.7.0.284. Here are the steps I am following: 1. Rate photos using Nikon's Software ViewNX-2. All meta data readable and correct displayed from .NEF file in software. 2. Edit and create .tiff file using PhotoLab 2. All meta data readable and correctly displayed from .NEF file in software. 3. Edit in Affinity Photo in example used just the HSL filter. All meta data readable and correctly displayed from the .tiff file on the EXIF tab of AP. 4. Export from Affinity Photo and create .jpg file. Steps used to check work: 5. Open .jpg file in Nikon's Software ViewNX-2. No camera or lens meta data displayed. 6. Open .jpg file in PhotoLab 2. Camera data and settings displayed correct but no lens meta data displayed. 7. Open .jpg file in Affinity Photo. All meta data readable and correctly displayed from the .jpg file on the EXIF tab of AP. It appears the camera and lens data is not being deleted because Affinity Photo can see it fine. But, other software is unable to see the camera and lens information. I noticed this problem in the released version today too. What got me to checking was the place where I upload files for sale (clickasnap.com) was not longer displaying my lens information. I reported the problem to them thinking it was something on their end in reading the exif data correctly. However, when today I checked the forum and saw the persons note about the Nikon D7200 meta data I thought I would run these checks to see if the problem might be on my end. I believe something might have changed in the last full release. If you need the .NEF, .TIFF, .JPG, and Affinity Photo project file to confirm this I can upload them. Hope this information helps. Peace Marvin

  5. Thanks for the update @dominik . I am still waiting to hear from DxO support. I imagine they are pretty busy. Butch
  6. @dominik yes the plugins look ok on my 1920x1080 screen running in demo mode both as a plugin and when I ran HDR Efx Pro,.
  7. Waiting to hear from DxO support on this issue dominik and will be sure to post when i get an answer. DxO support has been very good in the past about resolving issues. Everything except Veviza 2 works ok in the demo mode. So, I really think the activation situation can be addressed by them. Butch
  8. Downloaded the trial version and with the exception of Viveza 2 everything worked acceptably that I could see. Viveza 2 showed a heavy pink color cast and there were no changes I could make to the document color format that would correct the situation. However, since I was more interested in the other parts of the Nik Collection I went ahead and bought it. But, when I tried to activate any of the Nik products it failed with the message that I was not connected to the internet. I then tried to run one of the products standalone which worked just fine but again it failed when I tried to activate. Last night I submitted a trouble report with DxO and when they respond I'll post here how it worked out. Running Windows 10 latest updates. Butch Situation Resolved with not being able to activate DxO Nik Collection running on Windows 10. @dominik Got the response from DxO Monday, June 11, 2018 I heard from DxO Support a shot time ago. They resolved my problem of not being able to activate my copy of DxO Nik Collection running on Windows 10 with latest updates. These are the steps they had me follow: 1. Uninstall DxO Nik Collection 2. Go to the folder C:\ProgramData\DxO Labs\Licenses 3. Delete the two files nik2018demo.lic and nik2018.lic (you may only find one) In my case the file that was there was nik2018demo.lic 4. Reinstall DxO Nik Collection Following those steps I was able to activate my paid copy of DxO Nik Collection and run plugins in Affinity Photo. I hope this may be of help to others. Dxo Support was very prompt in working with this. I submitted my support ticket on Thursday. I started a dialog on Saturday and the situation was resolved on Monday. Given the support folks were responding to a new release I was very pleased with their support. Butch

    Watermark to a Photo Batch

    I have not done this with a watermark but I do run batch processes that execute macros. I think these would be the steps you could take: 1. Create a macro for your watermark text and placement. 2. Run a Batch process that executes the macro you created for your watermark. When you run a Batch Job you can indicate: 1. Which files to include in the batch, 2. What file types you want to save. 3. Where you want to save your output file. 4. What macro do you want to run. If you go to the link posted below to the Official Affinity Photo (Desktop) Video Tutorials you will find a tutorial on how to create text, creating macros and batch processing. The tutorials on all subjects are excellent. I am just a user of Affinity Photo and not a tech person on this site. The area where you placed your question (Resources) is for resources being made available. I think this is problem a better area in the forums for asking a question and getting a response from tech but I just can't think of it off hand. If you look at the titles of the various areas of the forum you may get other thoughts. EDIT: Just found the area on these forums for asking questions. The name of the area is Questions. Hope this helps. Peace

    Unhandled exception

    Same here. It is not consistent as to when it can occur. I have had it occur when it is the only adjustment layer I have added or when I have several adjustment layers. After each crash there is not chance to report the error. Also, after each crash I can reload the file and do the same thing and curves will work without a problem.
  13. Here is a video on YouTube by a fellow named Wei Chong that explained Blend Ranges/Blend Options in Affinity Photo in a way that really give me insight into using Blend Ranges. I has very few views but for me it was very helpful.
