  1. Using either my Wacom tablet or mouse the healing brush, with opacity set at 100%, works as if opacity is at 50% or so. It worked fine for me in 1.6x previously, which I have now reinstalled and it works again as expected.

    Prophoto RGb and Nik Collection

    I'm looking forward to a fix for this. In the meantime I duplicate an image and run it directly through Nik (Colour Effex) via a shortcut on my desktop. The resulting file, with added effects and original colour space, I paste as a layer in the original file.
  3. So it does. I was just about to send you a screenshot to prove .afphoto files were not recognised on my Windows 10 machine but the thumbs generated before I could do that. Very happy to be wrong!
  4. Is the 44mb in 8bit? So, we are getting the same results for the jpgs
  5. I can't attach a file as they are too big but here is a Dropbox link I've done some testing with that file- Develop RAW file to 16bit .tif in Capture One - 137.38MB Save as jpg (highest quality) in PS - 18.93MB Save as jpg (highest quality) in AF - 28.7MB An increase in jpg size of 50% in AF over PS. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Develop RAW file to 16bit .tif in Capture One - 137.38MB One small clone edit and resave as .tif in PS - 137.35MB Then save as jpg - 18.93MB One small clone edit and resave as .tif in AF - 160.6MB Then save as jpg - 28.7MB Here, in AF the tif increases by 15-20% but, on saving that edited tif as a jpg, the extra MBs are lost. (But the AF jpg is still 50% larger than the PS one) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ So, is AF adding extra info to a simple tif file with no layers? If so, can I delete it? With jpgs, is PS compression higher in PS than AF at 12/100%?
  6. Thanks for the welcome Chris. I followed the link but what if there are no layers in the .tif? As I wrote earlier, one single small clone edit of a dust spot increases file size by 20%. I need to read a bit more about the snapshot. I've tried deleting the snapshot prior to saving but that makes no difference. Actually, my primary concern is the size of the jpgs I subsequently make - they are much bigger that those that PS would generate. I read somewhere about AP jpg quality of 100 being better/bigger than PS 12. I think that is correct but cannot find the info again Storage is not the issue. Large jpgs (full size and best quality) increase upload times considerably for me.
  7. I would find a preview in ptc's DAM software very useful. Also, it does seem a little odd not to be able to see an image preview in Windows Explorer. Correction: My mistake, I can see thumbs/previews in Windows 10 Explorer
  8. Just starting out with AP and very impressed so far. I'm wondering why saved .tif files (generated from CaptureOne) increase by over 20% when saved in AP? I only have apply one small clone edit for this to happen.
