  1. OK, thanks. Maybe I should mention that the original file with the 2 unsharp masks and the lens blur were created in version 1.6, and the maximum blur was added when that file was opened in 1.7. It was then saved over the original file. Cheers
  2. Many Thanks. It's a fairly small niggle, but the new apps, over all, are superb, and very easy to use, Mac and iPad. Well done to the whole team!
  3. Hi, Thanks for the response. Here is the file as saved from iPad, with layers in the correct order, and sub-layer visible in the list DSC_5311i.afphoto
  4. Hi, I saved a multilayer .afphoto file from iOS photo 1.7 to iCloud, and then opened it in the mac desktop version 1.7 and discovered that the nested layers are all reversed. Also, I had a mask attached to a filter layer, nested inside the background layer, which does not show on the desktop version, unless I drag the filter layer outside the background on its own, when the attached mask layer now becomes visible (see attached screenshots). Am I missing an essential setting here? Or is this a bug? The same layer reversal happens opening a file saved from macos on iOS, in fact the precise reversal of the process, because the attached mask layer that was not visible on the desktop becomes visible when nested on iOS. Any help gratefully received. Thanks.

    well, the trial finally timed out on me, so I bit the bullet and bought the licence, and now I have a working program, that reads exif data from .nef files no problem. So I guess I'm happy now! Thanks for all the efforts! Starting to get some really nice results now, but lots of learning still to do, so no doubt I'll be back to pick some brains soon.

    exiftool works just fine from the terminal, but the same file opened directly with Affinity shows no data. It is definitely the same .nef file, and not an .afphoto file. Affinity on mac (high sierra) does read .afphoto files created from .nef files by Affinity on my iPad, and displays the transferred exif data fine (see previous post). Hope that makes sense.

    Hi, tried disabling AV but no difference (Avira AV if that's of any help?) AV is not triggered by running exiftool in terminal without modifiers (it shows the man pages). Can exiftool be run from command line to test it?

    Hi, I opened up a raw file in the iOS app, developed it and saved it as an .afphoto file, which then opens in the desktop app with exif data intact (as per screenshot). Does this help?

    okay, done that and it does indeed show the app in the Applications folder (see screenshot). Then I reset and we're back to the default dark layout etc.(see screenshot 2). But still no data.

    Hi again, okay so done all that and no joy. Attached screenshot of reset app.

    OK, further update. It turns out that the "open with ..." business was the finder opening up the trial app from the image file mounted when I was installing the app. When I tried "open with ..." and specified the version in my applications folder, it was back to the same old story, no exif data. So I wonder what story is there? Why would the version on the image file work, but the version in my applications folder not? If I did purchase the full version, presumably via the app store, would it be guaranteed to work as it should? Or would it work like the trial version? Which could be a problem ...

    And I think I've solved it, although I don't altogether understand it. I found the reset options in preferences and did the lot, and then, rather than launch the app from the dock, I asked the finder to open the file with Affinity, and hey presto, there was the camera and lens info and all the rest of the exif data. BUT the way it did it was odd. The dock icon did not bounce up and down as usual when an app is opening a file, instead a completely new instance appeared at the end of the dock when the program opened. so I use this as the dock icon now and have removed the first one I created myself by dragging the app from the finder to the dock upon installation. Now when I open affinity from the dock using the new icon and open a RAW file, I get it working as it should. Weird, but happy, result. Thanks for the help, I wouldn't have done the reset thing otherwise for a while, but why the "open with ..." approach worked, I have no idea. I hope this helps anyone else with the same problem. Thanks again! And while I'm here, this looks like a bit of a killer app to me, so I'm delighted it now works properly and I can generate coherent and consistent workflow between desktop and iPad. Cracking piece of software and I see no reason why I won't make the full purchase when this trial ends!

    Hi, I don't know what difference this makes, but I'm using a mac running High Sierra 10.13.4, so the launch with ctrl held doesn't work. I just get the right click menu options as per standard OS UI. Tried using alt, but no Clear User Data dialogue, just the app launching as per usual. Any other idea for how to do it? Also, I took a RAW picture with the iPad version, and then opened the resulting exported .tiff in the desktop version, and the exif info for the iPad camera was intact and displaying as expected.

    Hi, here is the develop screenshot. The exif data reads fine in ufRaw and RawTherapee when the .NEF file is opened, but not Affinity, it seems.

    Hi, thanks for the reply, but that doesn't leave me any further forward. I have the iOS version on my iPad and that has no problem reading exif data from the files and displaying correct lens and camera info, but having uninstalled and re-installed the program, still no joy, as per attached screenshot. Any further ideas? Thanks.
