  1. Strangely, when I try to download that file Windows wants to download it as a .afdesign file. Exiftool identifies it as a JP2 file, and when I give it a .jp2 extention and open it in Photo 1.8 beta the application crashes. I do get a crash report, and I can upload the report if it would be useful, @MEB. (Or, perhaps it uploaded automatically since the beta is set to auto-upload crash reports. In that case, it's associated with the email address I use for these forums.)

    When will JPEG2000 (JPF) support be added

    Today I tested the various TIFF variants and compared with JP2. In all cases I saved lossless when given a choice. Test file: 3664x2744px LAB 16bpc, original NRW raw file size: 15.6MB PSD: 57.5MB TIFF unpacked: 57.5MB TIFF LZW packed: 19.4MB TIFF ZIP packed: 17.3MB JP2 Lossless (Photoshop CS5): 35.5MB TIFF ZIP (Photoshop CS5): 29.1MB Anyway, it seems TIFF ZIP packed performs best. Much better than JP2 in Photoshop CS5. JP2 does not perform better at all in my tests here. Unless lossy JP2 files are used, which defeats the purpose of archiving the image data as-is, of course. One more thing to consider: JP2 files are very slow to process compared to TIFF ZIP and other file formats. Compression as well as decompression take much longer. In short: much longer processing times and larger files seemingly aren't favouring the use of JPEG2000. Even in good old Photoshop CS5 the JP2 file comes out bulkier than the TIFF ZIP version produced in Affinity Photo.

    When will JPEG2000 (JPF) support be added

    Are you absolutely certain about the resolution of this particular file? Because I saved a new jp2 version with lossless compression in PhotoLine, and the file size is almost identical to the original file you posted here. I assume you originally saved lossless jp2 files? The file you posted has no more pixels in it - it is what it is, as far as I can tell. When I save a typical Photo ~3600x2500 16bpc photo in jp2 with lossless compression the resulting file size is around 40mb - a far cry from your posted file. Anyway, I've attached the action. It converts the opened file to LAB 16bpc in PhotoLine. I've also included a version which calls the tiff save option to speed up things. I encountered a couple of small bugs related to jp2 files and batch processing, though. Would you be able to share a file which you are certain contains a higher resolution photo? If saved lossless, it should be at least around the 20-30mb mark. rgb2lab.actions
  4. Hello, I am a stubborn lifetime Serif user. I have used Drawplus since I was 17 years old when version 4 was free and version 6 was new. I loved it and still use X8 today. I said I would not buy Affinity Designer until it has a gradient mesh tool but, I just want it too much. I am probably going to buy it today. Okay, so, with that decision, here is my question. It is both an Affinity and a CommunityPlus question so I will ask both places but I feel this may be the better place to ask. If I wanted to make an illustration in Affinity Designer, then export it in a format that DrawPlus X8 can read, and then use DrawPlus X8 to add a few meshes here and there, possibly add a missing nose to a face or add a complex glare to a shaped metal item, which format would be the best one to export my Designer image in? I think my choices are probably svg eps smf and maybe pdf. I thought perhaps since these programs are from the same devs, perhaps one of these formats out of Designer would be read well by DrawPlus X8. Sure, elements will need to be flattened, no doubt, but, which format will keep the most? If it is better that I use CorelDraw or Inkscape for the final mesh phase that works also, just let me know, but I prefer Drawplus overall, which is why I am excited to learn Designer finally. CorelDraw is sort of famous for having wider format import support than many, so that may be better if there is a good format I do not know of that Affinity Designer and CorelDraw both support but DrawPlus X8 does not support. I am not very in the know on new formats or which vector formats Affinity is best with. PSD is great for collaborating on rasters but it is unclear which is the best one to collaborate with different software for a vector design. I do not subscribe to software, but aside from soon having Designer, I have Serif DrawPlus X8, CorelDraw X8, and can install Inkscape if needed. Since this is not a CorelDraw forum I will post the import formats supported by my version of Corel. The goal again is to export an Affinity Designer image to a program that has a mesh vector fill for a final edit and to retain as many vectors as vectors as possible, flattening as little as necessary of the Designer image in the transition to the other program. Here are the common files CorelDraw imports. There is a longer list at the link. • Adobe Illustrator (AI)• Adobe Type 1 Font (PFB)• Windows Bitmap (BMP)• OS/2 Bitmap (BMP)• Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM)• CorelDRAW (CDR)• Corel Presentation Exchange (CMX)• Corel PHOTO-PAINT (CPT)• Corel Symbol Library (CSL)• Cursor Resource (CUR)• Microsoft Word (DOC, DOCX, or RTF)• Microsoft Publisher (PUB)• Corel DESIGNER (DES, DSF, DS4, or DRW)• AutoCAD Drawing Database (DWG) and AutoCAD Drawing Interchange Format (DXF)• Encapsulated PostScript (EPS)• PostScript (PS or PRN)• GIF• JPEG (JPG)• JPEG 2000 (JP2)• Kodak Photo CD Image (PCD)• PICT (PCT)• PaintBrush (PCX)• Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF)• HPGL Plotter File (PLT)• Portable Network Graphics (PNG)• Adobe Photoshop (PSD)• Corel Painter (RIF)• Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)• Adobe Flash (SWF)• TARGA (TGA)• TIFF• Corel Paint Shop Pro (PSP)• TrueType Font (TTF)• Visio (VSD)• WordPerfect Document (WPD)• WordPerfect Graphic (WPG)• RAW camera file formats• Wavelet Compressed Bitmap (WI)• Windows Metafile Format (WMF) https://support.corel.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005407707-CorelDRAW-Graphics-Suite-X8-Supported-file-formats Thank you.
  5. All of my JPEG2000 files were created with Photoshop CS5. The extension for all of my files is .JPF not .jp2 or .j2K. I currently use Affinity Photo version 1.7.2 I checked to see if it would update to 1.7.3 but it won't. That might be due to my running it on Mac High Sierra. I did try to rename one of the files to both .jp2 and a copy of it to .j2K but Affinity Photo 1.7.2 still will not open it. I still get the error that it is not a supported file type. If you're able to open .j2K and .jp2 it could be due to your using version 1.7.3 I don't know for certain, but since mine will not update to 1.7.3 it is possible that version 1.7.3 is not compatible with High Sierra OS. I know that some programs will not update if they detect an incomparable operating system. That was the reason I got Affinity Photo was because when I upgraded my Mac from Lion to High Sierra Photoshop CS5 quite working.
  6. All the JPEG 2000 files I have on my Mac use the .jp2 file extension. (That is the standardized file extension for ISO/IEC 15444-1 conforming files.) All my Affinity apps (among others) can open them, for example by using the right-click "Open with..." Finder option: I do not have any JPEG 2000 files that were created with the .jpf extension; however, when I change the extension of a .jp2 file to .jpf, "Open with..." shows me this: Affinity Photo opens these renamed files without issues. I am not sure why the others do not but all the current & recent Affinity app versions will open JPEG 2000 files if they use the standard .jp2 extension. BTW, I get somewhat similar results if I rename using the alternate .j2K extension -- all Affinity apps will open them, but oddly "Open with" only shows me the same list as for .jpf.
  7. When I create a picture frame and replace a .jp2 (JPEG 2000) picture, Publisher will crash immediately. The same issue if I use "File --> Place". If have a 2018 Mac mini, 16 GB RAM, 500 GB SSD Process: Affinity Publisher [10589] Path: /Applications/Affinity Publisher.app/Contents/MacOS/Affinity Publisher Identifier: Affinity Publisher Version: 1.7.3 (1.7.3) Code Type: X86-64 (Native) Parent Process: ???

  8. Good morning. There must be a 7 to 8 hour difference between where we live because your reply is shown to be 7 hours old. Anyway, I considered using one of the TIFF compression algorithms but I was not sure if those would be supported on other programs, so I left my TIFF files uncompressed after I started having problems with CS5 and JPF. When I was saving files in JPEG2000 I do recall CS5 taking quite a while to save them, so you're right about the slower processing with JP2. And you, as well as other commenters, keep referring to JP2. All of my JPEG2000 files have the extension JPF. According to a list of variants for JPEG2000 the extension of JPF means my files were saved in the JPEG2000 (Part2) variant. The Part 2 variant simply might not be supported anymore except by the Preview App and another Utility App in my Mac called ColorSync. I did discover that the Preview App can export the JPF files as OpenXLR in 32 bit. The only side effect is that the colors are more saturated and lighter, which can be readjusted if necessary. I have experimented with OpenXLR files before and they are good for HDR work. What I will probably do is rescan the old film photo prints to get the resolution I need. Older NEF files can simply be reprocessed and saved at TIFF. I will only need to use the Preview App for JPF files that do not have a corresponding NEF backup or a photo print that I can scan. I will be leaving shortly to do some photography work at the Grand Canyon, so I will be gone all day. Just letting you and anyone else know so that you know why I am not replying for the rest of today.
  9. It has already been determined in this topic that Preview.app opens .jpf files -- but only as 8 bits per channel RGB files, & apparently often only at smaller pixel dimensions (lower resolution) than the original PS versions. It might be that Preview.app is opening a preview image embedded in the .jpf file. It looks like the "Moment of Silence" quote (which appears to be pulled from a variety of "Missing Manual" books for PSE by Barbara Brundage) may have made the same mistake I did, assuming that .jpf was just another extension for the same JPEG 2000 file format as .jp2 or .jpk, which it is not: from this page there is this (emphasis added): I am still looking for anything that definitively indicates if JPX officially support the LAB color space or not. Because "more comprehensive color space descriptions" could simply mean more comprehensive ICC profile info than for JP2 (which the jpeg.org page also says supports color space information), I am not sure if this is some weird Photoshop-only thing or what.

    When will JPEG2000 (JPF) support be added

    When I ask PhotoLine to save a LAB image as JPG2000 it warns that LAB space is not supported for that file format. Outside of Photoshop I'd be surprised if any other image editor will allow for this. Irfanview and PhotoLine have no issues opening these files, but the channels contain L, a, and b data rather than RGB data. I am certain other software which supports jp2 files will load them as expected, but with the Lab channels into RGB channels. It has nothing to do with colour profiles in this case. I think Photoshop embeds a parameter that tells it to interpret the channels as Lab instead of RGB. The solution is simple: if your image editor supports the loading the original jp2 LAB files and also maintains 16bpc, then it is a simple case of copying the correct channels into a Lab image. Which is what I did in PhotoLine and the action I uploaded earlier. There is no need to rescan unless you require a higher resolution. Just use PhotoLine and the action, or any other image editor that allows for this channel move. Or install a virtual machine with a free Windows image (available at the MS site), and install the trial of Photoshop CS5 to do the conversion for you to LAB tiff. Which is a properly supported format.
  11. I only brought this subject up again because I did notice that some people were able to convert J2K and JP2 files using the newest APh. So I thought that perhaps they did add the support, but I was wrong because it still won't read JPF. My guess is that Adobe has a special patent on JPF because when I saved my files in that format back when I had CS5 the JPF extension was the only option for JPEG2000 using CS5. I did a search and there is no 3rd party software listed specifically for JPF, but I did find a lot of 3rd party software for JP2 and J2K. That ImageMagick also does not support JPF according to its supported format page. I even tried one of those on-line conversion websites but they also said the JPF format was not supported.
  12. Then something is wrong with what the Mac App Store ("MAS") is displaying for you because if your Mac can run version 1.7.2 it can run 1.7.3. The usual suggested fix for this is to sign out & then back into your MAS account & recheck for available updates. If that does not work, sometimes moving the Affinity app to the Trash does, but that is a risky step unless you have a backup of the app somewhere like on a Time Machine volume. I tried that & got the same 'unsupported file type' error you did in Affinity Photo. However, I could open it with Apple's Preview app, where it opens as an 8 bit RGB format file. Exporting from Preview using its File > Export > "JPEG-2000" format preset & any Quality setting from "Least" to "Lossless" resulted in a .jp2 file like this Chris Birthday (lossless).jp2 file that all three Affinity apps had no problem opening. So it looks like >8 bit depth JPEG 2000 files are a problem for Affinity, while some apps like Preview will open them but only at 8 bit color depth.
  13. Did you try any of those experiments with actual .jpf files, or only with .jp2 files that you had renamed to .jpf? As there is a different extension, it is likely that though JPF is a JPEG2000 format, it is in some way different from JP2 files, and thus perhaps not supported by Affinity.
  14. In case it was not clear from my previous post, at least on Macs you should be able to open .jpf files directly from the Affinity Photo File > Open menu. To open them in Affinity Designer, change the extension, either to .jp2 or to .j2k & they also can be opened directly from that app's File > Open menu. Affinity Publisher also can open .jp2 or to .j2k files, but weirdly not from its File > Open menu (because they are greyed out). To open them in that app, either use the Finder "Open with..." option & choose Affinity Publisher from the list or drag the file & drop it onto either the app's icon in the Applications folder or onto its Dock icon if you have it on the Dock. But only Affinity Photo can open .jpf files without changing the extension to one of the two other extensions.
  15. When I open the JPF file with Preview App it does display it normally. When I go to export it gives me the options of JPEG, JPEG2000, TIFF, PNG, and OpenXLR. Exporting to JPG, JP2, TIFF, or PNG converts it to 8 bit RGB. But when I export to OpenXLR the result is RGB 32 bit. The OpenXLR file that gets created does have all of the original colors that were in the display, but they are more saturated and lighter. The heavier saturation and lightness can be adjusted if necessary. After readjusting the color saturation and lightness I then convert the OpenXLR file into TIFF 16 bit LAB. Like I mentioned in another reply I will only do this for JPF files that do not have photo print for me to rescan or an NEF version that can be reprocessed. Got to leave in 10 minutes to do some photography work so if you reply to this I will check for your reply either late this evening or tomorrow morning.
  16. Are you sure either one really supports this or just converts the files to the .jp2 standard at 8 bps & RGB?
  17. I just updated to Affinity Photo 1.7.2 When I drag a .jp2 file into my document, the entire program just quits on me. I then get the notification that Affinity Photo quit unexpectedly. ***works fine when draggin .png and .jpg files into a doccument*** I'm using MacOS High Sierra 10.13.6 Attached is a video of what happens. 2019-08-28 09-42-43.mp4
  18. OK, on that page the text does say, "Grayscale, RGB, CMYK, and Lab are the only modes supported by the JPEG 2000 format," but it doesn't say anything that I can find about the Part 2 extension that the .jpf extension is supposed to indicate that bit depth is specified in floating point notation, which allows significantly greater that 16 bpc color depth. In fact, it only mentions 16 bit color or greyscale, the sample .jpf file is according to the header "RGB8*" (whatever that is supposed to mean), & there is nothing I can find on the rest of the page that indicates .jpf is a separate "Save as..." option with additional options to use FP notation. The J2K download page seems to say about the same thing as the Part 1 spec that the jpeg.org page does, & says it "features" 16 bit compression. From other sources, it appears that the ".j2k" extension is supposed to be used for "experimental" purposes, apparently for files that do not (or did not) meet the ISO Part 1 standard in some way or another. The plugin does show a JPX format option with a "Float encoding" checkbox, & a "Custom bit depth" option, but unless it is in some other part of the plugin window, there is nothing to choose which color mode will be used. The second sample shown on the Samples page seems to make no distinction among the 4 JPEG 2000 extensions shown, which can't be right, & the sample file itself opens as a .jp2 version. Somewhere in all of this I guess there must be a definitive answer about PS support vs. everything else, but to me it is just a muddled mess.
  19. In Other apps that can open jp2 files, the colours are wrong too (green and red), and Image Magick report a warning: Bad COLR header box (bad size: 35).
  20. The original file was .jpf but I did create copies and renamed them to .JPF, .jp2, and .j2K and not one of them would open. I originally bought Affinity Photo from the Apple App Store back in 2017. Since then the App Store has updated the Affinity Photo program several times and the last update I got was 1.7.2 I just checked the App Store and there are no further updates for my version of Affinity Photo. So 1.7.2 is as high as mine will go. I don't have the other Affinity Apps, just don't need they others. If you want to try and convert one of my files here is the one I have been experimenting with. It is the original .jpf version saved by Photoshop CS5. Chris Birthday009.jpf
  21. No, as I said I do not have any JPEG 2000 files that were created with the (non-standard) .jpf extension. However, from what I can find online about the JPEG 2000 file format, the .jpf, .jp2, & .jpk extensions all should refer to the same format, one that conforms to the ISO/IEC 15444-1 "baseline" standard. Edit: apparently, the "f" signifies floating point 16 or 32 bit depths, as specified in the "Part 2" ISO/IEC 15444-2 standard, so I am guessing that some apps like the Affinity ones can't handle that. I am not sure what you mean by "will not update to 1.7.3" but as my sig below my posts show, I am running macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 & versions 1.7.3 of all three Affinity apps. If you can attach one of your JPEG 2000 files created in Photoshop CS5 to a new post, I can try opening it on my Mac if you want. Or maybe if you change the extension from ".JPF" (all caps) to the lowercase ".jpf" it will work for you.
  22. Maybe it is intended but if so it seems strange that in the Mac version raster image filed can be opened through the Finder, or via drag & drop onto the app's icon. This behavior occurs because Publisher's info.plist file includes "CFBundleType Extensions" key/value pairs for these (& many other) raster image filetypes, including bmp, jxr, j2k, jp2, webp, tga, & even a bunch of RAW formats. CFBundleType Extensions key/value pairs in an app's info.plist file is the standard way for an app to declare to the Mac OS that it can open a file with a particular extension. It is what the Finder "Open with" right-click option uses to populate that list & if dragging & dropping a file onto an app's icon it should pass the file to that app. (It does not guarantee that the app can open the file, only that it will be passed to it.) I did not check every filetype in the key/value list but all that I did check including several RAW filetypes did open in Publisher! Since Publisher has no Develop Persona of its own, not even via StudioLink, I am not quite sure what to make of that -- the RAW files open at their full pixel resolution so they are not thumbnails or previews. They open as single "(Pixel)" layer files using (I think) the default ICC color profile set in Preferences > Color, but they have a dull, underexposed look different from with the Mac Quick Look feature, using Apple's RAW Engine in Affinity Photo, or even using that app's Serif Engine with all corrections & enhancements turned off. In fact, I just now checked the Finder > Open In & drag & drop behavior of Affinity Designer & it also will open RAW files, with the same appearance as is Publisher. However, Designer does not grey out any of the raster image file formats in its File > Open menu -- only Publisher does that. For the curious, TypeExtensions.txt is a plain text list of the array of key values of item 2 of the CFBundleTypeExtensions key of Publisher for Macs' info.plist file. There are 71 extensions in the array, although AFAIK a few are neither raster nor vector image file formats.
  23. How do I make cat images like these on the iPad in affinity designer? D61F57AE-2FBA-47F2-97C2-2153323297D5.jp2 D42B9C1E-962B-4FE7-8D51-1EA30CD45CD9.jp2 B11808E2-FF65-477A-8ECF-E751E2B1C8D7.jp2 3F8EE0D5-5878-41BE-AF03-EC2B6072AD89.jp2 E02D6AD5-CE30-4394-A186-EE20796C6528.jp2
  24. Then how do I edit the text from a design that’s already made without doing the whole design over again so I can make the design more my own. from the iPad it’s very confusing and I have designs that are already made but want to alter the text a little bit but don’t know how. 96F37F6B-C5C1-4B1D-9366-BBDF3C21CDFE.jp2 CD044D3F-ABC9-4044-894D-42364A9B2FDC.jp2
