    Raw Processing Engine choice

    Sorry, I just remembered someone saying they shoot jpg earlier... Yes. Exporting a tif from darktable will give you an adjusted file to work with in affinity.

    That shouldn't be a problem. Jpg files at essentially "flattened" so, what you export is a flat rasterized file (adjustments baked in). If you were working with raw files, you'd have to export a .tif (smart) or a .jpg (meh) to affinity & retouch from there. You can buy a 6tb hard drive for ~130usd why, exactly aren't you shooting raw?
  3. Hello! I'm a Capture One user. I've been exporting tiff files & doing heavy retouching in AP before rounding back to finish color edits/crops/batching in C1p. Then i saw this and I'm wondering if i should: a) switch to PSDs assuming they're "better" b) continue using tif files because they work just fine c) ask you guys why the 2 best Adobe competitors aren't working together on making this workflow C1p-AP-C1p using afphoto files I'm going to be honest. If Serif wastes development funds on pushing a Lightroom competitor into an overcrowded market (rather than a legit asset manager like bridge) I'll be pretty disappointed. I'm sure no one cares. Serif already has >$100 from me & I'll rush the queue to get at that publisher sweetness when it comes either way. But, real innovation & working with industry leaders (as serif has with x-rite) is what I'm looking for.

    Dave & Rafi. I'm going to assume you're not imaging professionals & point you to Darktable (free) RawThearapee (free) OnOne ($100) DxO ($130) and If this IS your job Capture One ($300). Each has it's plusses and minuses. I use Darktable for family photos etc & C1pro for work. Affinity's raw processing is basic & should stay that way. If you want a developer to open your raw files; Affinity is great for that. If you're suggesting the team that develops a filter that gives us live displacement maps should drop their efforts on that hot shit & be bothered with the raw developer because you don't want to google... I don't have a lot of nice things to say & I don't think the devs should either. Learn your tools & use them Gentelmen. Good day.
  6. This exactly... I use a Surface Pro 4 & plan to upgrade to a Book 2 soon. All of the touch + pen stuff from ipad applies to surface/2-in-1 users on windows.
