  1. Thank you again. It sounds like it's easier/better to just buy it direct from Affinity. Have a great holiday. You look to be right in the spirit of things with your avatar.
  2. Thank you, Elfred. What about the Macro pack that comes from the Affinity Store? Do you know if that's available from the MS store?
  3. Hi - I'm new to Windows, coming from Mac and want to buy Affinity. Is it better to buy direct from Affinity or the Microsoft Store? I have a main computer I'll be using the app on and then a Surface Go for quick edits & stuff. Does the Affinity store version allow installation on 2 machines? On the Affinity Store, I see there's a free Macro pack available. Would I get that at the MS store? I just got my computers setup and this will be my first purchase. Thanks!
  4. When I import a HEIC file from photos, AP reduces the dimensions of the file from 4032x3024 to 3072x2304. This happens on all HEIC files but not JPGs. Why is this happening? Thanks!
  5. So, just to confirm, the iPad version supports importing of HEIC files but not saving to that format? I own the desktop version but am thinking of buying the iPad version. Would I be able to import a HEIC into iPad and save to an AP format and then work on it on the desktop?
  6. Just bought Affinity Photo. Love it so far, but was a little disappointed to learn that HEIC files aren't directly supported, so I had to figure out a workaround. In Apple Photos, I exported an HEIC file to 16 bit TIFF, but when I open it in Affinity Photos, it displays like the attached file. It opens fine in other programs, so I'm not sure if it's "glitching" just in Affinity Photos or is something with the way Apple Photos is exporting it and the other programs can "work around" it. This happens with all HEIC files using any color profile for the export. Photos originally captured as JPG export fine. Thoughts? Editing to add that I just read that while the iPhone can capture 10 bit color depth, it can only encode (write) to 8 bits, so exporting to a 16 bit file isn't likely going to gain anything and will just make the file bigger. Are there any plans to directly support HEIC in the future? I saw some forum posts about it but didn't see a definitive answer.
  7. Currently a Mac user but switching to Windows in a couple weeks and wondered if there's any upcoming sales or promotions planned with extra add-ons included or a discounted price. I'm not in a rush to purchase since I can't use the software yet, but some sites are still offering black Friday deals and I'd buy it now if it was on sale or there were extra downloads included. Thanks!

    Serif RAW Engine Not Working

    Hi all, I recently downloaded & am testing the trial copy of Affinity Photo (v 1.6.6) and can't get it to auto correct for lens distortion when choosing the Serif RAW Engine in the Develop; Assistant, but it works fine with the Apple Engine selected. My camera is a: Canon G7 X (supported in the Lensfun database) I've reset the application and have completely uninstalled & reinstalled it too. It looks to be working fine with RAWs from other cameras. Original G7 X RAW attached. Any thoughts? Thanks! IMG_1484.CR2
