  1. Hey, Welcome to another episode from the SMTV camp. Whilst we patiently wait for a way to store and organise our pics from the team, have a look at this tutorial. We take a look at how you can (with a little hack) create a 1 - 5 star rating system inside of Affinity photo to organise and rate those gems of yours. Create a rating system inside of Affinity Photo Enjoy, Allan.
  2. First off, I have seen the posts confirming that the affinity team will be working on a DAM which excites me very much! (can I pre-order? ;)) anyways I'm assuming that the project is in the early stages if started at all, but I wanted to ask for these now so that they could be considered in the core of the design. My requests are founded on my reading of this article: http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/archival-photo-backup.htm Things I would like to see specifically in the Affinity DAM (and which I think are a must for a truly PRO DAM): Strong Compatibility with different file types and the ability to convert between them losslessly (is that a word?) as different formats eventually go extinct Support for creating and tracking multiple copies of the library for redundancy purposes - Ideally I'd like to have multiple external hard drives with no special connection like raid and put copies on each The ability to split a library across multiple storage pieces (ie split a 300 gb library accross 50 gb blu ray discs and then the merging of the library back to one volume) Strong Checksum Support for error detection Parity/Recovery Files to recover from an error (and in extreme cases this is where redundancy matters most) Finally a way to access the files in case ( I hope it never happens ) Affinity goes away. Thanks!
  3. Is Serif Labs at the point to have developed a philosophy around their approach to digital asset management that they can share? Not the details nor the features, but the general approach. For example, is parametric editing a part of DAM (such as with Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture) or is that a part of the photo editing software (such as Adobe Bridge and Photoshop)?
  4. I’m very impressed with both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer and may well decide to cancel my Adobe CC subscription. Unfortunately, I have over 20,000 images catalogued in Lightroom, so I hope Affinity will release a Digital Asset Manager (DAM) a.s.a.p..
  5. As Adobe has decided to make the import screen in Lightroom suitable for Instagram users, I have concerns wether Lightroom should be replaced in the future. Adobe makes this concerns even bigger by publishing buggy apps too early which ruin lives of professionals. Last year, Serif came out with this Affinity-suite and I have high hopes that they will release a Lightroom alternative. I am serious about that, since Capture One, well, does not work for me. But if you do, make sure that people can transfer 100k photos with any adjustments non-destructively. I don't know if you have plans for this, or if you have resources for this. But if you have, well, I would be the first to buy. Adobe is going for Instagram users with all their iOS-photoshop-mix-fix crap, which is not what professionals want. I know that one day, I will enjoy Affinity Designer on my iPad without compromises. And I hope you guys could rescue the professional photography business. I know this post has not the right spot in the forum, since everything is about Designer or Photo. But I just want to post this to see wether this could be the future of photography. Any name suggestions for a Lightroom alternative?
  6. Love your software. I wonder if you guys have any plans for a Lightroom alternative I look forward to the Indesign replacement next year.
  7. Hi all! I used to be an Aperture user and now I decided to get Affinity a go instead of Photoshop or Lightroom. I am not using any DAM so far but instead just importing files from Apple Photos and then edit in Affinity. This way though I do not feel confident on how to import RAW files. I have RAW and JPEG together in the same files in Photos, and when importing it seems to select the JPEG by random (see screenshot). When I then choose "develop" in Affinity, I get no hint as to wether the file the program is working with is actually a RAW or a JPEG, as it behaves the same as when I import a JPEG file only (see screenshot). Simple question: How do I import RAW files from Apple Photos in to Affinity, and how do I make sure I am actually working with the RAW file rather than the JPEG? Thanks in advance!
