  1. Hi all, I'm having this issue again with Affinity Photo 1.7.1. It's happening every fourth or fifth photo I'm editing. I haven't done much with Affinity Designer 1.7.1 & Affinity Publisher 1.7.1 so I haven't encountered this issue with those programs. I do have additional fonts installed but they are all managed by Apple's FontBook - total fonts 405 which shouldn't be too many for desktop publishing.

    EXIF data disappearing

    Hi Chris, Thanks for getting back to me. I haven't used any other apps to upload photos, I've just bought a MacBook Pro because my old Dell Alienware has just about died. I was using Adobe Photoshop CS5 to edit my photos then uploading via the Flickr web page. I wasn't going to pay the Adobe extortion subscription & found Affinity Photo on the Apple App store. I like the app & it's got plenty of features, more than I'll ever use, so I tried using the inbuilt share to upload nearly 300 images & didn't realise that the EXIF data was being stripped out. I'll keep using Affinity Photo & upload the images using the Flickr web site in future.

    EXIF data disappearing

    Hi all, I'm a new user so it may be me but I think it's Affinity Photo dropping EXIF data when using the Share > Flickr option. The EXIF data is with the photo on the JPG & PEF (Pentax K-5 IIs) when opened after I've used the Pentax Digital Camera Utility to import the JPG & PEF files from the SD Card to my MacBook Pro. The EXIF data is retained after editing & creating a new *.afphoto file but when I use the File > Share > Flickr option the EXIF data isn't being uploaded. The photos end up with EXIF data that looks like this: JFIFVersion - 1.01 X-Resolution - 72 dpi Y-Resolution - 72 dpi IPTCDigest - d41d8cd98f00b204e9800998ecf8427e Any ideas why this is happening? Cheers, Steve
  4. I started using Affinity Photo on my new MacBook Pro & I keep having this happen randomly. I can be working on files, uploading the to Flickr & then suddenly I can't save the edited file. The only way to fix this is to quit Affinity Photo & start editing that image again. I've only got a single file open & it doesn't matter if I try to change to another directory on the MacBook Pro, it's locked out of the whole directory. I'm working with local files on the MacBook Pro & don't move them to external drives or network storage until all editing is completed. There is nothing wrong with the local permissions & as soon as Affinity Photo is relaunched I can open & save files. This really annoying, especially when I think this is a great app that's saved me doing an Adobe Photoshop subscription because I'm shooting & editing photos when I go touring Australia.
