  1. Im currently working on and iMac with 3.06 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 12 GB of Ram, Mountain Lion. Loading, developing and editing Raw files seems to take longer it should. Is there a way to smooth out the process with ram usage in the preference menu? I tried messing around with it but no result, Tone mapping and HDR seems to be a really slow process as well
  2. In Develop Persona, after cropping and exiting back to 'View Tool' mode (cursor is now a hand shape), why is the 'Crop Tool' button still depressed on the left vertical tool bar?
  3. Hi, I see that I individual presets for Basic, Lens, Details, and Tones can be saved. I wonder if there is some way to save a single preset for all of them. Thanks!
  4. Hi everyone! First i’m loving Affinity Photo and am amazed at what i can do with it. One thing that bugs me though is figuring out the workflow from multiple raw files to end photo. I shoot mostly portraits so lighting circumstances are the same for multiple photos at a time. I basically have 2 things i’m wondering about depending on what is possible. Is it possible to apply the develop persona settings to multiple raw files? I believe you can do that with the desktop version by saving it as some sort of preset. I would love to know if this is at all possible on the iPad version. Otherwise feature request Another route would be to use Lightroom for the developing proces and then exporting it to cloud storage. I’ve tried tiff files but that generates 150 MB files from 25 MB raw files (exported as 16bit). Also tried jpegs but would prefer a file type without compression/data loss. Next thing i’ll Try is DNG. I would love to here your thoughts and suggestions! Thanks.
  5. Please see attached video. After opening any slider's type-in menu in develop persona, i) close button doesn't work and reset the entered value the only way to get out is to select one of the preselection (9, 25, 50...) ii) tapping anywhere outside the slider's type-in menu but within the studio hides the panel e.g. clicking on the clarity label hides the panel iPad Pro 9.7", iOS Public Beta 7, Photo beta v1.6.5.59 24827172-9EC7-4F14-AE6A-B00BDB61D78D.MP4
  6. I have a problem by using the Shadow and Highlight sliders of the Develop Persona. Please compare the two results. The only thing I tweaked have been the Highlight slider to -100% and the Shadow slider to +100%. All other switches set to OFF/Unchecked, in Camera Raw and also in Develop Persona. The only exception was the usage of the Camera Colour Profile "Neutral" the RAW file offers (not available in Develop Persona), but this only affects subtle the colours. Camera Raw also applied the automatic lens correction profile, which is also not recognised by Develop Persona. Everything else was disabled (sharpening, denoise, etc.). Please see attached results. The one on Develop Persona is unfortunately much worse than the one of Camera Raw/Lightroom. I also attach the RAW file. I am very keen on your reply to this, and I really appreciate in advance. Hey guys, there is a problem on upload of Lightroom/Camera Raw generated JPGs to Affinity Forum sites, this error only occurs if I want to upload the Adobe generated JPG sample: Best regards, Roland RAW File: DSC00644.ARW Camera Raw Output attached as Zip: DSC00644-CameraRaw.jpg.zip
  7. Hi, I love the software, but miss some crutches I often use in other software. I think it would be convenient to have a few preset white balance settings in a drop down menu in develop persona. E.g. As shot - Sunny - cloudy - shade etc. that usually helps in finding a good starting point for wb. I guess it would be great if demanding individual users could tweak these to account for their specific cameras, but for me that doesn't seem necessary. At least, rawtherapee works for me perfectly this way. Thanks. Wouter
  8. When working in the Develop Persona, I would like the image of a distant bird to fill the screen. I have always used Crop in Apple Photos to accomplish this. In AP, what would be the difference between Scale or Crop to accomplish this?
  9. Hi, Would it be possible to shed some light on this for me. When I load a sequence of files (not Batch Processing) ....e.g. SR_3122, SR_3123, SR_3124, SR_3125, SR_3126 into the interface to Develop,having 5 files open, the files are not displayed in order. Instead of being in numerical order from left to right across the interface, it seems to be random, first file on the left would be say SR_3123, then SR_3126, SR_3124, then SR_3122 and SR_3125. Many Thanks Simon R
  10. In Develop Persona, when using Split Screen in the Details Studio the image is larger in the After side than in the Before size. For me, this makes it harder to evaluate subtle changes. Is this an oversight or am I missing some advantage to the size difference?
  11. Developping Raw Files, AP 1.5.2.69 very often does not recognize camera data and subsequently will not perform lens correction. In Raw persona as well as in tone mapping persona (new HDR stack..) the display shows 0 or "no camera data" text instead of lens name when opening GH-4 Raw file(s). This behaviour seems to change from time to time without notice. But in spite of investigating that for a while I could not find a reason behind that so far. The only thing I can tell is, that the same Raw files opened with Photoshop CS 6 do not show any innormal behaviour and lens data are always displayed in correct manner. The same is valid for ACDSee Ultimate 10. Please advice what I could try to improve that disturbing behaviour. Edit: On Windows 10 notebook the problem seems not to happen. Best regards
  12. nach dem update von Version 1.5.1 auf 1.5.2 auf dem MAC funktioniert die RAW Entwicklung nicht mehr... das Negativ wird geöffnet mit eine minimalen Auflösung vin 240 x 450... Profil Greystone 50... oder so ähnlich - jedenfalls ist das Programm eine einzige Katastrophe ..... ein vergleichbares Problem hatte ich mit Adobe nie.....
  13. Is it possible to make use of macros developing RAW photos in Develop Persona? "Macro" appears in studio only in Photo Persona.
  14. Hey all, Photo continues to ruin my RAW images. I just want to make girl look pretty but as soon as I open an image like this in Photo it just ruins the coloring of her outfit :( Pay attention to her top, it is nice and white on the left image, ruined blue on the right. NO EDITS are made to the right image. Why!?!? Thanks, Shaw
  15. When I develop two or more RAW images for a panorama or stereo pair, I find it useful to save the basic parameters from the first as a preset, so that the other image(s) are developed the same. I find that the white balance is NOT saved, and has to be set manually. All the other parameters are saved correctly, as far as I can see. I'm running version 1.5.1.54 on a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows 7.
  16. Dear community, I am facing some problems with some RAW files that have high light exposure and get some tendency for the sky to burn out. When I open the RAW file in Affinity Photo develop persona (v.1.5.1 Mac) I get some purple skies I do not get when opening the file with Apple preview or Photoshop. Also the ready made JPEG does not show any purples in the sky. Are there any adjustments that can be done to fix this problem? I am using Panasonic Lumix GX 80 / GX 85 / GX 7 Mark II however it is called in different countries. See the screenshots below in the upper left corner. Thanks !
  17. Hi All! I am new to photo editing in general, so probably a newb question. See attached, when I open various photos like this, that have LED lights, they do not appear as the original. Other photos of LEDs open the same as the original. This is occurring mainly in blues and purples. The raw is a .NEF file directly from a nikon. No edits were made to it. All options are unchecked in all the right hand tabs in develop persona. Please help!
  18. Hello, how can you store in the riders "Simple", "Lens", "Departement" with defaults in a total specification in Develop persona. Is for me important for different cameras / lenses with one "click" an overall development per camera to be able to make and no single specifications use. One possibility would be to realize this via makros, but in Develop Persona macro is not possible. If there is no solution for now, please include in the request. Thanks and greets Dieter
  19. I'd like to raise awareness to an issue that's bothering me (and apparently a few others) for over a month now. At first I hoped that my muscle-memory would get used to it; but a few hundred raw photos later, it's still as annoying as the first day. I'm referring to the way one can exit/quit/cancel development: it's very counter-intuitive. - It's totally understandable that one cannot proceed editing the image, if it hasn't been developed first. - It's also understandable that the adjustments in the develop persona, cannot be retained, unless the image gets developed. here are the quirks and some workarounds: - If develop persona were implemented as a modal, the Esc key should allow one to... escape. - If develop persona is not a modal and is a window/tab then Cmd+W and Cmd+Q should both allow you to close the document just like pressing the Cancel or X button (of the tab). The current message box when pressing Cmd+Q/W, is not meaningful: it's merely stating that you have to click elsewhere to cancel/close/quit. Why all the hoops and loops? This is particularly inconvenient when having dozens of develop personas open and you decide it's time to quit the application (or close them all). What could had been done with Cmd+Q is now mouse gymnastics! You have to close every develop persona individually, with the mouse, before you can quit the application. - The cancel button, and the X button, shouldn't act differently: As it is, the X button never asks for confirmation, whereas Cancel always does! - when you haven't made any adjustment in the develop persona, canceling should not ask for confirmation. It should be performed silently. - The confirmation should be rephrased. The yes no buttons are not very helpful. Yes, I want to cancel? Yes I understand? Yes I want the file saved? Yes I want it developed? If it were a rare occuring dialog, it would be okay to have and read all the text to know the meaning of Yes/No, but I see this dialog more often than I am asked to save a file, and I guess others too; so the buttons have to be as self-explanatory as possible; or the text as short as possible. eg. "Discard Changes?" Yes/No An example (not the most thought out apparently) follows - it shows two self-explanatory options: "Cancel & Discard" and "resume developing". It could had been "Discard Changes" and "do not discard" or it could even had been 3 buttons such as "Discard Changes", "resume"/"return" and "develop and Save as...", but you get my drift: it needs rephrasing. - Pressing the Esc key while the confirmation is displayed, should work (currently it does nothing). Hope this helps :) -Fotis Now that I got it out of the system,I have to say that I've started to really appreciating the Serif raw engine (and its speed) compared to other raw develop options!!!!
  20. Just purchased Affinity Windows version today. Why would the shape or position of the histogram be different when viewed in the Develop Persona compared to the Photo Persona. Attached are two screen dumps, 1) A RAW file just prior to developing, 2) The same image immediately after being developed. I find it difficult to adjust a RAW image due to the positioning of the graph in the Develop Persona. My camera is an Olympic EPM1, the image is an ORF. 2016-12-11_220225.pdf 2016-12-11_220309.pdf
  21. Hi. Firstly: thanks a lot for this very promising, fast, affordable, non-subscription application! I have purchased Designer for Windows already. Now for Affinity Photo on Windows Beta 1.5.0.39 (German): 1. Opened .RW2 file in Develop Persona 2. Applied chromatic aberration 3. Then use de-noise: when I move any of the sliders a message at the center of the photo window appears, telling me "chromatic aberration" and blocks the sliders. When this message goes away I can work the slider again. As soon as I move it again the message reappears. It seems as if chromatic aberration is called whenever a change to one of the sliders is applied. This same message appears again about 10 secs after initially moving any of the sliders. 4. Then I realised CPU load is very high for AFPhoto for over 20 seconds (Core i5-6500, 16GB RAM, SSD and HDD, system is fast and stable) 5. This is an issue which did not occur in 1.5.0.38 Thank you. Daniel
  22. I am having an issue with the new GoPro Hero 5 and its RAW photo capabilities, here is my workflow and what happens - 1) copy .GPR (GoPro's raw file format) to my mac 2) use Adobe DNG Converter to convert .GPR file to .DNG (.GPR is a supported file type) 3) open converted DNG in Affinity Photo Here is where things get wonky.... All previews of the JPEG (outputted from GoPro) and DNG (after conversion) look perfectly normal (when opened in preview, or when viewing the thumbnail) HOWEVER in Affinity Photo, the raw DNG file is flipped horizontally - as if it is being viewed in a mirror. Not only is it flipped visually, but the overlay brush is flipped - i.e. clicking the brush 1/4 from the left of the image results in a brush stroke 1/4 from the RIGHT of the image!!!! the only way i've gotten around it is to do all developing of the raw image while it is reversed (which renders the brush overlay completely useless), develop, then flip the image horizontally before export. This is a MASSIVE inconvenience as it renders a feature of Affinity Photo completely useless. I have not tried the gradient overlay in a vertical form yet, but I imagine it would behave the same way (gradient would go right to left if placed left to right)
  23. Hi so i opened a raw file and it did not open the deveop persona icon. heres my file. I still can't access the persona icon.. with a raw or a jpeg file. Please help. and i do not see the 6 file extensions for the photos app in my preferences. please please help.. this is very frustrating for me. thanks. norm heres my raw file attached
  24. Question on Develop persona and overlays: 1) There doesn't seem to be a way to rename an overlay. I'd like to do that and I'm either missing it or would suggest it as a feature request. 2) is there a way, when editing an overlay, to show the mask with a hot key? Say I have three overlays and jump between them. I go back to one of the overlays and want to see the red mask area again. Can I do that? 3) Toggle on/off overlay. Is this possible? I can cut the opacity to zero but would love a checkbox to turn off an overlay. Thanks in advance, Peter G.
  25. Hello from Germany, I like to use Affinity Photo a lot - but this bug here often is very painful: Repeatedly I had issues with overlays in the Develop Persona-> 1. create an overlay 2. don't do anything in the picture 3. the overlay was (maybe) created by mistake and I want to delete it 4. when the created and unused overlay is selected and deleted, it takes the whole picture with it... So when I used several overlays and the last one ist created by mistake and I want to delete it immediately, all the work done before is wasted... Maybe, when the overlay is created an in the list it is marked as the selected one and not the master something in the back of the program is still pointing at the master... Thanks for your great work on this product. I hope, this bug will be fixed soon.
