  1. It is quit frustrating, I have a 150+ macro in Photoshop that I would like to add but it as so many layers and channels that it is impossible to do in Affinity. This macro is used on all my photos, so I won't buy until the program includes a capable macro editor
  2. Hi, I do not have many options, I use Pentax cameras which have 2 options for RAW files: PEF or DNG. I have chosen DNG so I don't have sidecar files. So if I want to keep my originals and their adjustments, I need to save the file after treatment in the Develop Persona. Many Photoshop users (ACR) need to convert their Raw files to DNG not to have a sidecar file. One way or another, it is a matter of taste.
  3. Hi Len, To answer your question, I have +/-12000 photos in my bank of photos and 80% of these are DNGs with their setting incorporated including their metadata. I don't want to re-do the development and re-add the metadata every time I process a photo. I also don't want to operate with two standard and two workflow
  4. Hi, I also need that DNG files are saved with the Develop Persona modifications like it is done in Camera Raw before development in the Photo Persona. REMARK: For DNG files Camera Raw integrates those data in the DNG file. This is a must for me, I can't use this program on my photos if this is not a feature.
  5. Well, there is the basic way if you are not afraid of modifying the Registry: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-any-application-to-the-desktop-right-click-menu-in-vista/ You better save the registry file before proceeding in case something goes wrong Good luck!
  6. Thanks Chris for your reply. I need to adapt to Affinity Photo from Photoshop CC. So, with this resolve and when presets from the Develop Persona are repaired, I think thing will run smoothly for raw development. Thanks again,
  7. I thought that you should disable the tone curve in the assistant manager. So, sorry for the inconveniences.
  8. Hi, I think you should have a look at this video: Have fun!
  9. Hi everyone, I have the following presets in the Develop Persona: Basic tab: My Defaults Contrast = 25 Clarity = 25 Vibrance = 25 Detail tab: My Details Radius = 35 Amount = 100 Colours = 25 Details = 50 Contribution 50 Tones tab: Medium Contrast "My Default" preset seems to works as it should. On clicking it updates the panels and the photo and on clicking Default everything is updated to zero. "My Details" preset doesn't work. When I click it, nothing happens (doesn't
  10. Hi again, Found the answer in this video: A default tone adjustment is applied automatically and must be ticked off.
  11. Hi everyone, I have looked around to find discussions on the subject and found none. So if it is an old known subject, please delete. I have found that DNG files when loaded in the Develop Persona, without changes, are quit lighter then when loaded in other programs like XnView, FastStone and Camera Raw. The attached files were captured via CTRL Prn Screen and saved via Photoshop CC My system: Windows 10 Home Processor: Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q9400 @ 2.66GHz Memory: 8.00 GB System Type: 64-bit OS, x64-based processor
