  1. A while back I asked if the 96 PPI resolution for panoramas, stacks, focus merge, and HDR merging would be fixed so that the final rendering would reflect the original 300 PPI of the source images. I noticed that it has been fixed when rendering panoramas using the TIFF format for the source images. However, I just tried to render a panorama with the source images being in the Radiance (HDR) format and the finished resolution of the pano was 96 PPI even though the source images were 300 PPI. Is this just an oversight by the development department or is it a bug? Just wonder, because
  2. Fortunately this problem was just a nuisance. But hopefully it will be fixed in the next release in case I need to add another preset.
  3. That is the same thing I see when I tried to rename an existing preset I created with the older AP 1.8. This problem started with the 1.9.
  4. Just downloaded and installed the new update for AP 1.9.1. The export problem for TIFF Lab color seems to be repaired. It no longer crashes when trying to open Lab color files or when exporting LUT. But there is still one problem; it will not allow me to add, delete, or rename custom Export Presets. I have a custom TIFF export preset I wanted to rename to better distinguish it from the default preset but when I go to manage presets the buttons for "add" "delete" and "rename" will not work. Is there a workaround I don't know about or is this another bug that needs fixin
  5. Yes, MEB, I already know about the Beta version. I have been using it to work with my LAB color files. But it is an extra step in my development process since all of my custom presets are on the main program. Hopefully you will have the new update out soon.
  6. LAB does have some advantages over RGB. LAB was originally invented to mimic the colors perceived by the human eye. Although I am not creating vectors like you I like to archive my finished images in LAB color for printing purposes. When I print with my LAB images I find that the colors of the print are visually identical to what I see on the screen. When I used to print in RGB mode certain shades of red and blue would never look come out right in the print. As MEB said in his reply there is a Beta version that can handle LAB color. I don't have Design or Publisher, but if you are g
  7. I have been exporting my finished images as TIFF 32 Bit HDR files to preserve all the color and details of the Camera RAW image after development. I then use the Beta version to create 16 Bit LAB for final archiving. The reason I don't use the Beta version to do everything is because all of my custom presets are on the main program. Using the Beta version to export a Lab TIFF from the 32 bit HDR TIFF is an extra step, but at least the Beta version enables me to complete the work. Hopefully they will have an update soon that corrects these problems in the main program so that I don't h
  8. I don't have Design, but if it uses the same base coding as AP for its export functions then it might be the same problem. I downloaded the Beta version of 1.9.1 which is able to open 16 bit LAB TIFF. You'll have to contact a moderator to see if there is a Beta version for Design that has this problem fixed.
  9. The one I downloaded was for my Mac. I imagine they have a version for windows, but I don't know where to get it. You might want to look over the other support threads or contact AP support directly.
  10. I don't have Publisher or Design. All of my work is in photography and photo-manipulation. I also do some digital painting. So Affinity Photo is all I am using right now. I know it takes time to fix the multitude of bugs but any idea as to when the next update for the main install will be ready? Just wondering.
  11. Since the new update to fix all the bugs in AP 1.9.0 is not out yet I have been using the beta version for specific tasks that I cannot do with the main program due to the bugs making it crash. But I have noticed that I cannot create any export presets with the beta version. For example, when exporting TIFF 16 bit Lab the default preset uses ZIP for the compression, Bilinear for the resampler, and "whole document" for the ICC profile. I normally change the resampler to Lancsos 3. I normally change the compression to "None". And I normally change the ICC Profile to CIELAB D50.
  12. I don't know if this has been asked yet, but I downloaded the AP 1.9.2 beta and when I opened it the program asked me to register it. I bypassed that message since I wanted to see if the problems I reported in 1.9.0 were truly fixed. But I was wondering, if I do decided to register the Beta version will it interfere with the main program already on my Mac? I was also wondering if I can keep the Beta version on my Mac to use as a backup in case I have further problems with the original program I bought?
  13. It took quite a while to download, about 45 minutes, but it does seem to work on my Mac. It did work when I used it to open a LAB color file that was a problem for AP 1.9 But all of my Camera Raw Development presets and Custom Export presets are on the main program, so I will only use the Beta version for opening problem files until the new update becomes available for the main program.
  14. I'll download and try it, but I have never installed zip compressed programs on my Mac. Every program I downloaded for my Mac was a DNG file. If it does not install I will let you know.
  15. Right now the beta is only available as a windows zip file. I am using Mac High Sierra, so I will have to wait for the regular update.
  16. I don't normally use beta programs because there might be other bugs. I'll wait for the next update release.
  17. What about the bug I reported in a separate thread where AP crashes when trying to open TIFF images that are in LAB color space?
  18. I had to run your comment through a translator, but if I understand you correctly AP 1.9 is pretty buggy. I just sent tech support a file that causes the program to crash. Hopefully they will find the problems and send out another update with corrections as soon as possible.
  19. Just in case you might need the info I have included 2 screenshots of the LAB presets. One screenshot is of the original builtin TIFF LAB 16-bit preset. The other screenshot is a custom preset I made in which is changed the resampler, the ICC Profile, and the compression. Since the program crashes when trying to open a file made from the custom LAB preset this info might by relevant. Any questions or if you need another file for comparison let me know. I do need this problem fixed as soon as possible because if I cannot open the files with AP I cannot print them for my work.
  20. I just sent you one of the files in question. My internet is kind of slow. Took 20 minutes to upload the file. Just to let you know I used a custom TIFF export preset to create my files. I made this preset a long time ago with one of your older versions of AP so this problem might be related to that. I was going to delete the preset to see if it would have an effect but for some reason when I click the "Manage Presets" in the Export window it will not highlight any options. Might be another related problem. If you need a TIFF 16 LAB file that does open normally for comparison pu
  21. Hello. Yes, I would like to keep it private because my images go up for sale to exclusive stock agencies and I cannot have them copied and shared. So I will need the private upload link before I send it to you. Not all of my older files have this problem, but for some reason some that were created by the prior version of AP simply won't open and the program crashes. There is a batch of 14 photos I worked on dated February 5th and 6th. All of them were originally Nikon D810 camera RAWs that I exported to TIFF 16 LAB color after development. Out of those 14 TIFFs created
  22. I have already posted 3 times about bugs I have discovered. The program crashes when I click export LUT. It crashes when I try to open a TIFF file in the LAB color space that was created by the prior version of AP. It also crashes when I tried to export to TIFF 16 bit LAB color. It seems this new version has a lot of bugs to squash.
  23. I already posted about AP 1.9 crashing when trying to open files that are in TIF LAB color, but I also found out this bug seems connected to exporting TIF in LAB color. I managed to export to TIF 32 bit RGB, and other formats, but for some reason the LAB color space is crashing the program. I must have triggered 10 or more crashes while experimenting in an effort to isolate this problem. Each crash report was sent to Apple automatically. So far the only way I have been able to work on older TIF LAB files that were made with prior versions of AP is to use another utility pro
