Using Affinity Photo 188.8.131.529; camera Nikon D7200; shooting NEF+JPG; working with well-exposed images that display normally in AP 1.7 and AP 1.8.5 (They also behave normally in ACDSee Ultimate, DxO Photolab 4, and Nikon NX Studio). When these same .NEF files are opened in AP 1.9.1 the image appears washed out and the histogram is skewed to the left. The .JPGs of the same images display correctly. The screenshots of test images below are "as opened" with no adjustments, and clearly show the difference between for example ACDSee (top) vs Affinity Photo (bottom). The same problem affects older .NEFs from Nikon D60 and D80, so it does not appear to be camera-specific. I've checked the AP options and settings but nothing there makes a difference. I also see that similar issues were reported with AP 1.6, and apparently resolved in 1.7. This makes AP 1.9.1 unusable for RAW processing.
I am attempting to load .nef files into a stack then load them into the photo persona to edit each image individually as a layer. When i get them all loaded as layers, I cannot perform simple edits such as paint brush or erase. Even adding layer masks seems to do nothing. The only manipulation I can manage is the clone tool. I thought at first that it was because of having to develop the raw files but i have the same issue when loading images as .jpeg files in the stack. I've followed the steps layed out in your tutorial videos but they don't exactly conform to the technique i use for composite light painting images. Without diving too deep into my process, I stack the images then either paint or erase out my lighting as necessary. I'm a relatively new user coming, I must be missing something. The attached image is a flattened version of my raws. There's gold in there, I'm just trying to set it free, please help.
