    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (1.7.0.99)

    getting closer for Fuji .... I just downloaded the 1.7 beta posted above to see if the new Fui xt3 raw files are fixed... the problem files (those shot in "sports mode" and with electronic shutter on high speed) are still not working, but on a random "regular" image, the raw sharpening is noticeably better. I've attached a screen shot of the same image being processed by the current AP version (left) and the beta (right) with the same settings. Its a bit soft for my taste on the right (I will play around a bit more to try to improve it), but look at how much less noise there is. This shot is zoomed in quite a bit. This shot was in dim blue light at ISO 8000 1/40, f2.8 on Fuji xt3, 16-55 at 26.6mm. Screen Shot 2018-11-18 at 1.27.23 PM.pdf
  2. my Fuji Xt3 raw files load, but the color is wrong. I don't quite have my head around what is wrong, but I am unable to adjust to an accurate color image from the raw. Every image I've tested shows the pink/green slider in white balance to be far to the right at opening. Photo can open the files, but the new raw version is not reading correctly yet. I hope AP will get the raw converter updated asap! I don't want to shoot in JPEG only.
  3. Thank you for sharing this precious post. It certainly addresses the issue. I do wonder why this difference exists. It seems to unnecessarily complicate the user experience.
  4. Thank you for the quick and helpful reply! I’ll be glad to have my regular curser back.
  5. Instead of the circle curser, for the last couple of weeks I’m getting a weird moving red line and blue circles when I use the paint brush tool. I’ve attached a video of this strange curser phenomenon. It happens with other tools, though I can’t remember which ones. I’ll update this post after testing it some more. This is definitely a bug. The correct circular curser worked for a few weeks 311041DB-AE59-4C7C-85A3-C38A0630F236.MP4
  6. Hi everyone, I posted this question in a new thread, but thought maybe this might be a good place to ask it again After finally getting and iPad which can run Photo, I’m in the process of learning the iPad version. It’s surprising to me how many differences there are (unnecessary in my opinion!) For example, the unsharp mask options have completely different units/values/ranges. The adjustment options are labeled the same: radius, factor, and threshold, but the range is quiet different. For example, “factor” on the computer goes from 0-4, but on the iPad it goes from 0-100%. “Radius” on the computer goes from 0-100 pixels, but on the iPad it goes from 0-1024 pixels! What gives? It took me a long time to figure out good settings for this and other common adjustments (including noise reduction in the raw develop persona), and now I have to start over with many of them. Am I missing something obvious? What have you guys found works for conversions between the two versions of Photo? Lastly, is there a master list of these differences? Maybe someone has already made a conversion reference list to save us all time. Thank you all in advance. I do love this software. I feel on my computer it is and extension of my eye and brain. I’m looking forward to feeling that way on the iPad soon.

  8. You probably turned off the welcome screen (thats what I did). just got to HELP menu and select Welcome. Mine popped up after a second.
  9. This video is very helpful.... thank you. However, I am stuck at the step where we add a "go to" folder for the plug in support folder. The Shift + Command + G combination produces the forward slash, but when I click "GO", my computer beeps angrily at me and nothing happens. Is there another option for adding the support folder?
  10. Thanks for posting this, rudyryk. The lighten color blend mode worked well for me on an infants skin. I had to fuss a bit with selecting the paint brush color, but it was easy and quick, otherwise. What a great fix for a tough problem!
  11. UPDATE - after the recent 1.4.1 update, this problem appears to be gone. My noise reduction edits in the develop persona now stick and continue to look great all the way through to JPEG output. Thanks Affinity!
  12. UPDATE - After the recent 1.4.1 update, the problem appears to be solved! Noise reduction adjustments in the develop persona now stick after developing... and look great all the way to conversion to JPEG. THANKS Affinity!
  13. I have not tried converting to PNG. I process too many raw files to take the time to do that in a daily workflow, but I will try it on one to see if that helps pinpoint the issue. Thanks for the suggestion! Also - i see there is an update tonite... maybe it will be fixed.
  14. thanks barninga - I saw that, too. This does not work for me. The preview of the reopened file appears to be corrected, but when I zoom in its full of noise again. And if i export as a JPEG, the images is saved as an uncorrected noisy image. I appreciate your help, though. I'm hoping the awesome Affinity team is working hard on this issue. Holly
  15. I just posted on this in another thread. Did you ever find a fix? I'm finding right now, that noise reduction does not work at all on my fuji raw files. Looks great in preview then goes back to full noise after developed, and after a filter is applied in the edit persona. Very frustrating.
