  1. exiftool -q -p '$ExposureBracketValue $FileName ' -if '$ShootingMode =~ /Exposure Bracketing/' * \ | while read ExposureBracketValue FileName; do test $ExposureBracketValue -eq 0 && echo ; echo -n $FileName ''\ || echo -n $FileName ''; done The hardest part is possibly determining which shots are bracketed and which ones are a bracketed group, code above is functional for Nikon NEF files where first shot is 0 EV
  2. Yes, I was thinking that having command-line arguments to pass a set of bracketed images to Affinity Photo for HDR merge would be a good start, that way one could do some scripting using ExifTool to figure out if the images are bracketed and group several shots together, see this post below
  3. @marcdraco Yes, Resolve (non-Studio) has that feature
  4. @clfry I started work on an applescript automation solution for HDR Merge in Affinity Photo using Apple Automator's "watch me do" action, it is however not fully automatic and not really useable because you still have to select the bracketed images by hand, however it does save me some clicks. Let me know if you're interested, i'll post the workflow somewhere
  5. Let me re-iterate the need to look into adding this feature and providing some response as to projected availability, either in Affinity Photo and/or in the highly anticipated, long awaited Affinity DAM which supposedly was already being developed but delayed due to development of Affinity Publisher
  6. Hi there, is there any documentation on command line arguments for Photo? I'm, looking for a way to automate HDR merge, Panorama, Focus stacking Having the ability to pass multiple images to Photo from the command line with the operation to perform would be a good start For example: /Applications/Affinity\ Photo.app/Contents/MacOS/Affinity\ Photo --hdr-merge <img1> <img2> ... /Applications/Affinity\ Photo.app/Contents/MacOS/Affinity\ Photo --focus-merge <img1> <img2> ... /Applications/Affinity\ Photo.app/Contents/MacOS/Affinity\ Photo --stack <img1> <img2> ... /Applications/Affinity\ Photo.app/Contents/MacOS/Affinity\ Photo --panorama <img1> <img2> ...
  7. Portrait checkbox sets landscape aspect ratio
  8. When changing embedded images to linked images, the exported images are also inverted This seems to be a common problem with CMYK JPEGs from PDF, possibly helpful information may be found here https://graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/12894/cmyk-jpegs-extracted-from-pdf-appear-inverted/15906#15906
  9. This also happens in Beta when "include bleed" is checked in the export dialog
  10. Opened a PDF from Indesign in publisher, exported to PDF for print: all images except the first page are inverted, this does not happen when the PDF is opened and exported in Affinity Photo and exported, when the exported document is opened in Publisher Images are also inverted Original Document viewed in Apple QuickLook Export from Affinity Publisher viewed in Apple QuickLook

    Tonal Selections Ignore Child Filters

    This just happened to me too, I intuitively expected "Select > Tonal Range" to apply to the selected layer as displayed on screen after applying adjustment layers. When no layer is selected the "Select > Tonal Range" does not select anything. The behavior may be "by design" when a layer is selected, but I suggest re-designing such that when no layer is selected the selection applies to image as displayed on screen.
  12. Hi Affinity team, sorry to bother you with yet another problem. Short description When using Affinity Photo as an extension to Apple Photos, PSD files from the Apple Photo's Library cannot be opened User story As a user of both Affinity Photo 1.6.6 and Apple Photos 2.0 (3161.4.140) on Mac OS Sierra I'd like to be able to perform iterative edits to developed RAW files larger than about 1 MegaPixels. Problem 1 Apple Photos seems to apply a limit of 16MB to adjustment data of Photo Editing Extensions, so round-tripping is effectively only possible with raw files up to about 1 Megapixels; larger files will result in the message 16MB change limit exceeded - document will be flattened and saving only the JPEG into the Apple Photos Library Problem 2 Affinity Photo does not allow saving a copy in its native .afphoto file format when editing a file named "Apple Photos Document.afextensiondocument" (the File -> Save As... menu option is greyed out) but it does allow exporting a PSD document in this case. Attempted work-around I've tried to work around these limitations by exporting a PSD and reimporting the PSD in Photos. (.afphoto files can not be imported into Apple Photos unless they are saved as adjustment data by the Photo Editing Extension AND the file size if below 16MB) Perceived bug However when trying to edit the PSD using Affinity Photo as Photo Editing Extension the following message is displayed in Affinity Photo: Failed to open file [...]/6LVTQB9699.com.seriflabs.extensions/intermediates/Apple Photos Document.afextensiondocument The file type is not supported. Additional information Testing revealed that Affinity Photo CAN open the file when a .psd extension is appended to the file name. [edit] More testing revealed that the document type contained in .afextensiondocument file can be recognised by the "file" tool (file-5.31 as of macOS Sierra) - when editing OpenEXR files (can be opened by Affinity Photo) $ file -b "Apple Photos Document.afextensiondocument" OpenEXR image data, version 2, storage: scanline, compression: zip, dataWindow: (0 0)-(4944 3274), displayWindow: (0 0)-(4944 3274), lineOrder: increasing y - when editing PSD files (can not be opened by Affinity Photo) $ file -b "Apple Photos Document.afextensiondocument" Adobe Photoshop Image, 4945 x 3275, RGB, 3x 32-bit channels
  13. When developing a RAW (NEF) file in Photo, having an EV value above 2 and "Apply exposure bias as initial state" set in the develop assistant, the exposure slider and text-box do not reflect the exposure bias applied by Photo. In this (extreme) case the EV value set in camera and applied by develop assistant was +5 but the exposure slider and textbox show a maximum value of +2. Preferred fix is to expand the range of the exposure slider, alternatively (as expanding the range could make exposure adjustments by slider too coarse) allow setting higher exposure values via the textbox and spinners/steppers.
  14. The Location (map) panel is not available in Develop persona in Photo 1.6.7 - Beta 2 Will this feature be removed ?
