  1. Thanks. I'm aware of this option and I do want that the opened file be converted to my preferred working space. But I also want to know what's the original embedded profile without having to resort to another software. Sometimes, we have to work with files that we have not created ourselves.
  2. Hi Kirkt, The information you mentioned appears to be the working color space, not the original embedded profile of the loaded file. Am I wrong ? If I load a file with the sRGB profile embedded and if my working color space in AP is Prophoto, AP shows Prophoto, which is correct but this is not the information I'd like to access from AP.
  3. Hi, I couldn't find any way to determine the embedded profile of an image loaded in AP. I can see whether it has been converted to the working profile or if the image had no embedded profile but if there was an embedded profile, I can't determine which one from AP. Did I miss something ? Thanks.
  4. Hi, I you have a backup of your system disk, you should have a look there : I described where the workspace is stored. So, you can restore it from your backup.
  5. Hi, You should try Save | Edit with external program | File/Save in DVP. So, the original file will be modified. This is not the case with a filter : only the in-memory image is affected by the Save button in DVP. But here, there seems to be a communication problem between DVP and AP. DVP is expecting something from PS than doesn't seem to happen with AP. Using DVP as an external program seems to be the temporary solution but AP doesn't seem to detect changes in the original file and doesn't seem to have a "Reload" command (did I miss it ?). So you have to close the image and then reopen it. Rather awkward, I admit. I think that AP should react when the current image has been changed by an external program. At least, a Reload command should be available.
  6. Confirmed. Photo crashes immediately without any error message. I tried Ctrl+Shift +P.
  7. Also, note that if I hit the ")" key in the keyboard shortcut manager (without depressing SHIFT), I don't get the "°" character but the actual ")" as expected. This is not consistent with the fact that I get a "5" when hitting "(" without depressing SHIFT. Another indication that the mapping used is partially wrong.
  8. Hi Chris, > Out of curiosity, if the app language is in FR, does it still happen? I don't have access to a FR keyboard to test. This doesn't make any difference. On the french keyboard ( and ) are not shifted keys and all digit keys are shifted. It's the contrary on the UK keyboard : ( and ) are shifted and digits are not. So I think that the problem is that the keyboard shortcut manager uses a wrong mapping for this row of keys. Otherwise I wouldn't get a 5 when hitting ( . I obtain exactly the same result when switching to the UK keyboard driver under Windows. You can test the french keyboard under Windows by attaching the french keyboard driver to a hot key. Please find attached the french keyboard map.
  9. Hi, I'm using Windows 10 EN with a french keyboard (yes, this is a legitimate setup 🙂 ). All my software is in English, including AP. At the top of the french keyboard, the keys from 1 to 0 are actually & é " ' ( - è _ ç à . Numbers are on the same keys but accessed via the Shift modifier. When defining a keyboard shortcut, all the & é " ' ( - è _ ç à keys are wrongly recognized as 1, 2...0. The two rightmost keys ) and = are OK. This leads to trouble. Let's take an example... On the french keyboard [ and ] are not easily accessible. So, I decided to replace them with ( and ) to control the brush size. But while ) is correctly recognized and actually increases the brush size, ( is recognized as 5 and doesn't work (actually it triggers the "set global opacity" function). I guess this is because AP assumes that I'm using an English keyboard. However, there is no problem when entering text in the application itself.
  10. In Photoshop, if the image processed with ACR has been opened as a smart object from ACR, you can go back to the ACR settings and change them. In all cases your settings are stored in an XMP file and if you re-open the RAW file, your previous settings will be there. In AP, unless I missed something, once you have developed the image in the Develop Persona, you have no way to go back. If you reload the RAW file, your settings are lost and you have to start again from scratch. That's a huge difference, indeed. Not talking about the development quality. For me, the Develop Persona is superfluous. See my post above.
  11. I should have mentioned that this happens when the Scope panel is detached and independent from any other panel.
  12. Hi, I'm using a dual display configuration. I have moved the Scope panel to my secondary display. When re-opening an AP session, the Scope panel goes back to the main display. By the way, many requests for a workspace manager have been posted. Any chance to see this feature implemented one of these days, like in any other similar software ?
  13. Well, I think I'll go against the tide about this idea. Considering how advanced are the RAW processing software nowadays and considering that Serif currently have no idea about how they will implement a non-destructive RAW development in the future (see above) and also that they are probably using an external RAW engine like DCRaw or LibRaw, I'd say that I neither expect nor need or wish this feature. Lightroom/Camera RAW, DxO Photolab, Capture One are dominating the RAW Development software market and Serif will have a hard time catching up. The question is : why are so many photographers interested in Affinity Photo ? Because they need a tool that is easier to use than Photoshop, that can do enough to handle most retouching tasks and that does not force them to enter the subscription marketing model. Photographers need a tool that allows them to accomplish the retouching tasks that are not possible in their RAW development software, just because it's something totally different. So, my opinion is that a version of Affinity Photo without any RAW processing would be certainly welcome. Just forget it and focus on the retouching features that could be enhanced or added to AP. Successful software concentrates on what it can do well and tries to do it even better.
