  1. Affinity photo's raw engine does not alter the exposure of the raw image unless you allow the develop assistant to apply a tone curve automatically. It will look underexposed and flat because it is displaying the uncompressed tonal range of the image (more shadow and highlight detail then normal).

    Affinity Photo Raw Histogram

    Ron P. The raw histogram on the current official version of affinity photo always diplays as 32 bit rather than in the bit depth of the image you are developing. The new beta changed that so it would display the proper histogram for the image opened (E: a 16bit image will have a 16bit histogram).

    Unable to export photo

    Are you exporting to an external drive? And how large are the files? When exporting large files (usually serifs native file format) to external drives, affinity photo sometimes will give an error and not export/save the files. It is recommended that files be saved to internal drives that have a more stable connection.
  4. When performing processor-intense tasks such as focus merges, stacks, and panoramas I often experience total freeze ups of my computer. The more files I use in a focus merge, stack, panorama, etc the higher the chance the I will experience the freeze. The computer lags for a few seconds before it stops responding. I lose control of both the mouse and the keyboard. The clock no longer updates. The computer will stay in this state for seemingly forever until I unplug it or soft restart it. It will not turn off properly. I have also experienced this same issue when opening up many files at once (10< raw files). I really am not sure if this is a hardware or software issue, but I have never experienced these issues in any other program. Notes: - I have tried the customer beta and did not notice a difference. - This issue is extremely easy to replicate. - The only other problems I have experienced with this program was one minor crash, and files sometimes not saving.
  5. Thanks for the explanation. I'm glad I upgraded the ram I had then. It seems to fix the issue.
  6. I installed 3 4gb sticks of ram and the performance seems to be much better.
  7. Why does my computer lock up when I stack too many files rather then just slow down?
  8. Am I the only one experiencing this issue?
  9. If it is a memory issue would it be a good idea to upgrade my ram? I have more than 2gb free and according to the system requirements for affinity photo that should be plenty. I've also ran multiple tests on my ram and found no issues.
  10. The crash does not occur with less images. This stack was 30 images and several previous stacks of around 10 images (also raw) worked just fine. For most of my focus stacks 10 images is not enough. I tried it with a different stack of jpegs and I easily managed to replicate the results I had with the raws. So basically I am able to get it to freeze up with any files that I attempt to stack (if I have enough).
  11. task manager closed (also lower resolution)
  12. Focus merge of 30 raw images #1 During freeze (task manager is open) #2 Before merge (image size had to be reduced in order for it to upload)

    Image Stacking issues

    I've wrote about a "freezing" problem that results from processing too many images in affinity photo (I noticed a few other users had a similar problem). I would just like to know when this problem will be fixed (you guys are already working on it right?) because currently I have a lot of images that I've been wanting to stack (I still haven't experimented much in Affinity Photo). Thanks

    Cropping does not reduce file size

    Ok so I was wrong then... ...I guess it must be a bug. Sorry that I couldn't help you.

    Cropping does not reduce file size

    The file size stays the same because affinity photo does not get rid of the image area surrounding the crop. This allows you to change the crop even after you have saved your changes (note: i'm not an expert so I might be wrong).

    System crashes on import

    I had the same problem with loading files into affinity. I tried the latest beta and did not see an improvement.
  17. I tried out the beta version and tried to process a macro stack (the same one I had been trying to process in the regular affinity photo version) and had the same problem. At first I thought it was going to work because it had made it 1/3 of the way through align merge sources. But then the mouse started lagging on the screen and a few seconds later it stop responding altogether.
  18. I am new to this forum and have had affinity photo for a few weeks now and am having a recurring problem. When I try to process too many images (stacking, merging, etc) Affinity photo stops responding, the computer mouse stops working (I can no longer move the mouse icon on the screen), and the computer freezes completely (control alt delete has no affect). To regain control of the computer I must perform a "soft" reset (I hold down the power button for 30 sec) and go through a hard drive "check" during start up. I've learned a few things about this problem after experiencing it multiple times. -The program and computer will not crash during processing of less than 30 jpeg files or 2 raw (yes I said 2). -The problem is not due to the computer not meeting the download requirements (ram, storage, etc). -The mouse always stops working right before it freezes. Notes: -When not processing multiple files (stacking, merging,etc) the program works great. It's fast enough and quite enjoyable to use. -I am new to post processing, but not new to digital photography. -The file size for jpeg is aprox. 15mb and for raw it is aprox. 36mb. -The computer or program does not give any indication of a problem before and after the problem occurs as far as I know. -The problem occured when I attempted to stack moon images (several attempts) and during a focus stack. Feel free to ask me more questions. Thanks
