  1. I have a Macro here that does not seem to work correctly when running all steps at once, however when using "edit macro" and checking each individual step and running it does exactly what was recorded. Macros.afmacros
  2. This issue seems to have been (partially) fixed in Affinity Photo Customer Beta (
  3. It seems that the macro is confused by changing the aspect ratio in the resize canvas step, strangely when stepping trough the macro this doesn't happen Original image What it's supposed to look like (and does when I edit and step trough the macro) The Result of running all the macro steps at once
  4. Hi @Sean P The macro is supposed to resize the canvas, resize a layer, duplicate that layer and move it around. It is NOT supposed to change the aspect ratio when resizing, which it doesn't when you run one step at a time.
  5. Problem seems related to this thread
  6. The ColorTRUE SDK seems to be for display calibration on mobile devices https://xritephoto.com/colortrueSDK Adobe does publish a manual for tool to edit DNG profiles mentioning a dependance on X-rite color chart https://www.adobe.com/content/dam/acom/en/products/photoshop/pdfs/cs6/DNGProfile_EditorDocumentation.pdf X-Rite also publishes a manual for a tool to create DNG Profiles https://www.xrite.com/service-support/creating_dng_profiles_for_adobe_camera_raw I think the confusion stems from ColorChecker being the name of both a physical colorchart and a software application to do color correction using the chart. It was my impression that the request by OP was for software support in Affinity for the physical device, not for the software solution wih th same name, my apologies if this assumption was in error.
  7. @AiDon I really don’t understand how X-Rite creating non DNG dependent software is going to help Serif implementing chart based color correction. Apparently X Rite offer a SDK that can be licensed and implemented in the Affinity line of products. Is there something I am not aware of, like an inherent dependence of that SDK on the DNG format that would prevent Serif implementing the feature requested using said SDK? Affinity Photo seems to have support for reading DNG format, are you suggesting writing that format is a required feature to be able to license the SDK and that Serif can’t implement DNG writing to fulfill this requirement?
  8. @AiDon This feature request is for built-in support for X-rite colorcharts it was you who suggested contacting X-Rite to get built-in support for DNG-profiles in Affinity products if you want support for DNG export in AP that is a wholly different feature, I suggest you create a separate feature request for that
  9. So.. how would one go about that @AiDon? "Hey X-Rite we'd like support for your colorcharts and those of other manufacturers in software from another company (Serif), could you please go and re-write their software?"
  10. @AiDon So are you suggesting this feature request should not be implemented in the Affinity Suite because it is supported in other software that could be used in a convoluted way to somewhat approach the requested feature using Affinity products?
  11. @AiDon is it supported in Affinity like it is in Resolve? This would be a great feature to implement in the often requested, long awaited, even mentioned to be in development, supposedly to be finished after publisher Affinity DAM
  12. @AiDon what software do you mean exactly? Perhaps Affinity developers could use an XRite SDK to implement the requested functionality for XRite color charts but it would be up to them to license it, not their end-users.
  13. After saving a Designer file to iCloud Drive on iOS the file is associated with Photo on MacOS On MacOS both Application folders in iCloud drive show the Photo icon Command "Open With' used on an .afdesign file in iCloud Drive shows Designer to be the default application Command "Open" used on an .afdesign file in iCloud Drive opens the file in Photo
  14. Hi Gabe, when i do that it opens in Affinity Designer the first time, however, after closing Affinity Designer and then double clicking the file it again opens in Affinity Photo
  15. What's very strange is that the extended attributes for the file do seem to be set to open with Designer $ xattr -l ~/Library/Mobile\ Documents/6LVTQB9699\~com\~seriflabs\~affinitydesigner/Documents/Untitled.afdesign com.apple.LaunchServices.OpenWith: 00000000 62 70 6C 69 73 74 30 30 D3 01 02 03 04 05 06 57 |bplist00.......W| 00000010 76 65 72 73 69 6F 6E 54 70 61 74 68 5F 10 10 62 |versionTpath_..b| 00000020 75 6E 64 6C 65 69 64 65 6E 74 69 66 69 65 72 10 |undleidentifier.| 00000030 00 5F 10 23 2F 41 70 70 6C 69 63 61 74 69 6F 6E |._.#/Application| 00000040 73 2F 41 66 66 69 6E 69 74 79 20 44 65 73 69 67 |s/Affinity Desig| 00000050 6E 65 72 2E 61 70 70 5F 10 1E 63 6F 6D 2E 73 65 |ner.app_..com.se| 00000060 72 69 66 6C 61 62 73 2E 61 66 66 69 6E 69 74 79 |riflabs.affinity| 00000070 64 65 73 69 67 6E 65 72 08 0F 17 1C 2F 31 57 00 |designer..../1W.| 00000080 00 00 00 00 00 01 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 07 00 |................| 00000090 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 78 |..............x| 0000009f com.apple.quarantine: 0083;00000000;;
  16. Hi Gabe, I have, when I open the inspector, and select "Affinity Designer" in the Open With dropdown it immediately reverts to Affinity Photo AffinityDesigner_iCloudDocument.mov
  17. Both Designer and Photo were installed on iPad 6, Designer exits when choosing Export - Share - Save image (to photo library). In Privacy Settings Permission to access Photo Library can only be geven to Photo, No toggle appears for Designer.

    To lighten shadows has no effect

    Same issue here, in Affinity Photo iPad the effect of the shadows slider in the tone mapping persona is so subtle it is hardly noticeable, shadows slider in develop persona has a much more extreme (desired) effect.

  20. 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

    PDF Export images inverted

    Hi Chris, I was testing Affinity Publisher Beta with PDF's generated by Indesign
  22. 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
  23. 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
