  3. Not too long ago, in a land not very far away, I came across the concept of focus merges to dramatically increase depth-of-field of photos, especially macro ones. This was one of the reasons I bought Affinity Photo, as having learned the technique I had a requirement for affordable software the could do a good job of a focus merge. The focus merges I have done thus far have typically been hand-held and of fairly large 'macro' subjects such as mushrooms and flowers. Generally, these consist of 10-30 shots that Affinity Photo churns through and merges in very short order. Due to the hand-holding, there are often a few ghosting artefacts around some edges, but nothing that a bit of AffinityPhotoShopping can't sort out. Yesterday, I came across an unfortunately-demised beetle which seemed to be a perfect opportunity to try a more technical, tripod based, photo merge. One of the reasons for this post is to showcase the ability of Affinity Photo which coped with a quite staggering amount of data (the other reason is a desire to share what I think is a quite stonking photo!). To achieve the focus merge, I took 270 20-megapixel raw photos, totalling 7.8 GB of data. These I then processed into 16 bit/channel PNGs using RawTherapee which came to 24.7 GB. I then fed them into Affinity Photo's Focus Merge and let it churn away. It took just over 1.5 hours to complete the merge, and I'm very pleased with the results: In case anyone is interested in the hardware involved, here's the list: Camera: Panasonic DC-G9 Lens: Olympus 60mm f/2.8 Macro Images shot at: 0.5 sec, f/3.5, ISO 200 CPU: AMD Ryzen 1500X RAM: 16 GB DDR4 2666 GPU: nVidia Geforce GTX 970 I largely seemed to be CPU-bound during the various processing stages. Memory usage from RawTherapee and Affinity Photo pottered around the 2-3 GB mark; RawTherapee thrashed all 4 cores / 8 threads in the Raw -> PNG conversion (but still took ages; I left it going over night, so I don't know quite how long...) , whilst Affinity Photo used 1 core / 2 threads for the stack. A lower core count / faster GHz processor would therefore seem to be an advantage during the stacking process in Affinity Photo, whilst RawTherapee clearly liked all the cores it could get it's sticky little paws on. I included my GPU in the list as Affinity Photo does seem to use it a bit: 5-8% GPU activity shows up in Task Manager during Focus Merges; I've no idea if it makes a difference though. In conclusion, I'm very impressed with the ability of Affinity Photo to deal with huge amounts of data without choking. A few more threads might be nice though
  4. Hi everyone. i just downloaded Affinity Photo today and thought I would have some fun while getting acquainted with the interface. So far i am finding it quite smooth, coming from CS2 lolz. I took two images from Unsplash and put them together. I have done photo manipulation just for fun, so as always, I keep it simple. Any and all thoughts are welcome. Alan

  6. I am having performance problems with Affinity Photo 1.7.0 and I had to go back to 1.6.5 until Serif fixes issue. In the meantime, how do I disable the pop up notifying me that there is a new version available? It pops up every time I start Affinity Photo. I am running in a Windows environment.
  7. Here I demonstrate 4 principle elements that make up a successful digital portrait. These include: How 3D form is structured, Facial landmarks, Colour Luminosity Comments welcomed . Instagram> @clarkejohnsen
  8. I have hundreds of images of various sizes, mostly very large sizes, that I want to resize to a maximum width of 1920px, at 72DPI, RGB colour mode, JPG format. The height should be variable since the original images have various heights as well and I need to keep the aspect ratio to prevent distortions. (1)is this possible with Affinity Photo? (2)what would be the steps for the resizing to record as a macro. (I tried recording resizing one image and then use that recording for a batch job but AP used also a fixed height on every image resulting in many distorted images)
  9. Here’s a look at my Affinity Photo setup, using two views of the same painting that I am working on gives me the flexibility of zooming in on one image to work the details while being able to see the immediate impact on the whole image. This approach really works well given I am using a 5K iMac monitor. Comments welcomed. joined_video_d523871d91bc4ffea3bd7f8bf2663e61.MP4
  10. Updated: Fixed, see last line. Hello, Odd behavior experienced: In a particular file I can no longer move-clone items. To be specific, I mean when using the Move tool and you press Ctrl and then drag an item. The expected behavior is to have the item move-cloned. My resulting behavior is the item is simply moved. The erratic behavior is experienced with many kinds of item: tried with curve, shape and pixel. Only in this document. Affinity Photo 1.7.0.367 on Windows 10 Update: found that I had a document-wide pixel selection ongoing (marching ants). Ctrl-D to deselect and now the Move tool works as expected.

    When I try to do a batch job in Affinity Photos it just crashes. I am not sure why and it is really annoying.

  13. If you accidentally switch to separate mode, which I did, I cannot switch back to Merge All Windows. Does not work any longer after the new update.
  14. After the update, everything crashes and I have a deadline! How the hell can I roll back? I am dead in the water. Every file I try to open, the app crashes continually! I just updated and now I need to rollback. This is an emergency as I have a freaking deadline in a few hours. HELP!!!!!!! Update: Found someone with the same issue, it is a bug. Was about to find a temp workaround, I think. Went to preference and saw it defaulted to Metal and I switched to GPU, at least I can open a few of the files. Still testing. I had no issue whatsoever with the previous version and I have been a long time user. Mac Settings: AMD Radeon R9 M370X 2048 MB Intel Iris Pro 1536 MB Complete log attached crash.dmp
  15. Hello everybody! I just wanted to let you know that FX Monkey's second free pack for Affinity Photo is out! Faux 96: 8 Color presets and 4 Overlay Textures. Click the image below for more info (the website looks pretty cool though, so check it out! It has some hints on whats coming next too...ohh) P.S.: The previous Monkey Pack - Faux 77 is no longer available for download. A thousand thanks to all the people who grabbed a copy! Faux 77 was a teaser for a soon to come premium Monkey Pack: Faux 77 pro (more than 20 macros + Textures), so get your hands on Faux 96 while it's still available :) Enjoy guys!
  16. Hi everyone I have recently expanded my photographic hobby into astrophotography. Some time ago I watched a tutorial on the stacking feature in Affinity and thought I would give it a crack with some images I've taken in the last three or four weeks. I have to say that I am very happy with the the very first images I took and ran through Affinity. The process is somewhat quicker than dedicated stacking programs for astro but the results (for me) are very very satisfying. I thought that perhaps those that are interested could post their images and discuss different processing techniques that they have used. So I guess I'll get the ball rolling with my first astro edited with Affinity Clear skies D
  17. My first play at Photo 1.7 late last night my time...Enjoy! So far Gobsmacked at the changes.I feel like a kid in a lolly shop! Thank you Affininty! Yes! One Day I may even get to Spelling Affinninty correctly! Photo: Courtesy of NASA...

  20. GEAR: Affinity Photo for iPad v1.7.0.135; iPad Pro 9.7" using iOS 12.3.1 ISSUE: While trying to use the new feature, "New Batch Job" I selected a batch of raw files stored in a cloud-based folder. I made my choices about the conversion format and dimensions, as well as other JPEG options such as Quality/compression, ICC Profile, etc. Sorry to go off-topic, but there appear to be at least two problems. I'm hoping you can help: I can't figure out how to "Select output folder". Or at least the cloud folder I select doesn't seem to "stick". So the batch job appears to run, but never gets saved anywhere because no folder was actually selected. the choice of ICC Profile doesn't seem to "stick". This may be related to a possible bug I found in v1.6.x and persists in v1.7.0 where attempting to convert to a different ICC Profile does not work. The image remains in whatever is the default Color Space. Can anyone confirm the above? If so, then this is probably a bug that needs to be reported.
  21. It's the second I'll do beneath macro-stacks (indoor).I use a clockwork-lomo micorscope, build in 1973, an 21 mp ocular-cam hy-1138 from china, and for some photos I use not only polarizing filters but a cd-case for more colors. This pic consisted of 172 jpg's with a ROW 6,0/0,15 lens.
  22. I had to play around with my new update. Refine selection works fast and great!!! The stock photos are great too. Threw this together in 20 minutes or less. Pun intended!
