  1. Problem still there with iOS 13.2.3. I am quite sure it is a Affinity Bug rather than a iOS related bug.
  2. Same problem here with iPad pro 2018 10.5" with iOS 13.2. All file icons for the .aphoto files in the Affinity Photo folder are white. When I click on them, the preview is still empty (white). When I copy them to the icloud drive, the icon changes to the "Affinity Icon", still no "preview icon". But now I can click and preview the file.
  3. Ignore my last message. Seems to work fine now. I had to rename the layer from "background" to "Hintergrund". :-) Thx to the dev team for solving this issue!
  4. Bump. The final version of Affinity Photo 1.7 is the first one where I can see a very slight text when I use the above posted macro. However, we are still far away from the original look in versions 1.6.x. Is there any chance to get the old 1.6 macros working in 1.7 or should we start to re-work them with 1.7?
  5. When I add an adjustment layer into a macro, when using the macro the data entry can only be done by mouse (moving the slider), but NOT manually. When trying to enter the numbers manually, the sliders do not update. See attached screenshot: data and position of slider do not match. Using this option directly without macro works as it should. You can try it with the macro posted in this thread:
  6. Just tried again. It works, but only with your pre-defined 98%. When I enter any other number directly into the field which pops up after starting the macro, nothing changes. It only works when I pull the slider with the mouse. But this is not accurate enough (I think the macro takes into account your calculated 98,431%, although only 98% is shown). However, your macro seems to be the perfect solution for me, if only I could change the 98% to different numbers, and I need it also for other colors. Could you explain the single steps to create this macro? Obviously, you did not do it via "Select/Select Sampled Color...".
  7. Thanks carl123 for this valuable posting. I assume your other 2296 postings are of similar meaningfullness.
  8. Thanks for sharing your idea. Unfortunately, this is not accurate enough. With a threshold of 94%, only pixels with a red value of 255 are selected. With 93%, pixels with red values >237 are selected.
  9. Hello, is there any possibility to select pixels with specific RGB values in Affinity Photo? For example, in an picture from a fluorescence microscope, I would like to select all pixels with RED values >251. I already tried with mask followed by a brush with different red values, but this did not work. Unfortunateloy, with "Select/Color Range/Red" I cannot define the minimum red level of the selection. Seems to be a fixed value. Any idea? Regards, Jens
  10. Obviously, macros from version 1.6 do not work with 1.7. Also discussed here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/78232-problem-with-macro/ Unfortunately, no solution from the developers yet. It's a pity.
  11. You made my day, DM1 from Down Under :-). It works perfectly with files from the OMD E-M1. The files from OMD E-M1X cannot be imported, even not with the very recent iOS update 12.2. I hope there will be a minor update soon which solves this issue. Cheers, Jens
  12. Good point, thanks for that. I tried it with an ORF file from the brand new Olympus OMD E-M1X, which is not supported yet. Maybe that's the problem. I will try with another ORF file in the evening and let you know.
  13. Unfortunately, this doesnt work for me. I have the following RAVPower device: https://www.amazon.de/RAVPower-kabelloser-Kartenleser-Zusatzakku-Festplatten/dp/B00VUGUPH6/ And I did not find an easy way to import my Olympus RAW (*.ORF) files from either an inserted SD card or a connected USB harddrive. Although there is the option to open an ORF file via the provided RAVPower "FileHUB" app with affinity, affinity crashes without an error message (it simply closes). Urgently waiting for a solution. iCloud is not an option since I am often on travel where I dont have an internet connection. Any ideas? Jens
  14. Currently, this seems to be the only solution. I will try that.
  15. That's exactly the way I do it. However, when I open >10 files in order to insert my copyright logo via a macro, it is not relly convenient to click >10 times file, export, etc etc. The saving procedure takes much longer than the real work on the files. The exporting procedure is currently an absolute no-go for me. Is there really no solution for that issue?
  16. Exporting each single opened file is really cumbersome. I was searching for a solution for that, thinking that there must be one, and came accross this thread. Come on, developers/support/moderators. Is there really no option for exporting all opened files in a row with a few mouse klicks? What is the export persona good for? When I have several files opened and switch to the export persona in order to define the exact export parameters and switch then to the next file, I am I am bounced back into the another persona and have to repeat everything for the second file. Same is true for the next 23 files. "§$%&/()'#=(/*+&%$§%&/()=??
  17. Ok, here is the whole package (brushes, macros, example pics [pre & post]). The macros only work correctly if the layer is named "Hintergrund". The macro called "Jens Hartmann Photography 1.7" works for landscape format, the "Jens Tangerine V.1.7 hochformat" for vertical format. The third one produces only the frame, without text. However, since Version 1.7., all 3 produce only the frame without any text. Thx for your help. Btw: Any idea how I can get the macro to work independently from the layer name? Affinity Macro Bug.zip
  18. Since I upgraded my beta from 1.6.5 to 1.7.0.x, I have a problem with a macro which I use to create a frame+copyright text around my pictures. The final 2 steps of the macro is a self-made "picture brush" with my copyright text. This picture brush doesnt work any more, it simply doesnt appear in my pics. I re-created the final 2 steps of the macro and it worked again, but after re-starting affinity it again doesnt work. Is this a known isue? I could provide the macro + picture brush, if needed. Btw: Is there a way to erase single steps within a macro or to re-arrange the order of the single steps of a macro to fine-tune it? Couldnt find this option so far. If the answer is no, please put that on a wish-list. :-)
  19. Just an update on the installation procedure for Neat Image 8. The installer automatically detects Affinity Photo as well as Affinity Photo beta. However, the path where the plugin for the beta is installed is wrong: C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Photo\1.0 (Beta)\Plugins It should be: C:\ProgramData\Affinity\Photo\1.0 (Beta)\Plugins Just move the NeatImage8.8bf file into that folder and it will work. Hope this helps, Jens
  20. I think I have a similar problem. I have an RGB document with large areas of "black" (RGB 0,0,0). When I take the pipette in order to grab this black, and then switch from RGB to CMYK, it is shown as CMYK 72, 68, 67, 88. Even more strange, when I do the same in Adobe Photoshop, the CMYK color is 86,85,79,100. When a printshop printed this file recently, they had to add a black frame with Photoshop in order to add some space for the frame (print on canvas). And now guess: After printing, the additional black frame was much darker then the original black, and it looks terrible. Is it a bug or a feature?
  21. When applying a field blur filter in the form of a live filter layer, the handle is not movable, it always drops when I try to move it. In contrast, the filter/blur/field blur option works perfectly fine. Regards, Jens
  22. Hello, my name is Jens and I am an Austrian Underwater Photograph. Many of my pics are developed with Affinity Photo or Affinity Photo for iPad. Thanks to the Affinity team for the option to present my work on the Spotify Website, and special thanks to Charlotte for her support. Here we go: https://affinityspotlight.com/article/underwater-photographer-dr-jens-hartmann-blue-water-blue-sharks-no-ground-below-me/ Feel free to ask your questiona on underwater photography here. Dive safe, Jens
  23. After searching around for 10 minutes, I finally found out what you mean. I have to disable the lens correction in the assistant. I was always playing around with the check box on the right hand side (see screenshot) which did not help at all. BTW: The checkbox in the assistent window "Hinweis, sobald der Assisstent eine Aktion durchführt" [something like: Message, as soon as the assistent performs an action] does exactly nothing. No message. Never. This would have been helpful to solve my issue. I think we have some potential for improvement in the GUI here :-) Thx for your help! Jens
  24. Any news on that problem? Here is another example. Left: Irfan view. Richt: Affinity. The tree on the right side is totally blurred in Affinity Photo. I provide the original ORF file as well. Unfortunately, I found now way to bypass this problem. A correction of this bug would be very much appreciated since currently I cannot work on my 8 mm fisheye ORF files with Affinity Photo.
