  1. I'm having difficulties understanding EDR / not able to make it work in Affinity Photo 1.10.5. I have a Mac Studio running Monterey (12.4) connected to an 8K LG TV for a monitor (LG 65NANO95) through a DENON HDR compatible receiver. The option for HDR is available in Display Preferences, and activating it causes the TV to show a HDR badge. The DENON shows it's passing through a 12bit HDR10 YCbCr 4:2:2 signal with profile BT2020. I take a ProRAW photo with my iPhone 12 Pro, and open it in Affinity. Depending on the various assistant settings it can look quite washed out, or alternatively underexposed. I've found that if the assistant is set to Apple core image RAW Apply tone curve on (off and it's too dark) Display transform is unmanaged (ICC makes it washed out) Then I will get a nice looking photo which resembles what I expect / version displayed in Photos. Problem is ticking the EDR option has no effect on the image. It indicates a max 3.35 / +1.74EV and ticking EDR clipping shows affected areas when I push up the exposure, but the image itself doesn't change when EDR is on (other than the clipping indicator when that's on). On the other hand, if I set the following: Serif Labs engine all assistant options to no action Display transform to ICC Then the image initially appears very dark, and I have to thrust exposure up to +5 to bring it up to realistic levels, but the image loses saturation. However flicking the EDR setting on and off does at least show a difference in the highlights. This behaviour isn't what I would expect. I'd be hoping that there would be some combination of settings which open the initial image in a reasonable state, and turning on the EDR option would allow the highlights to shine even brighter. What is it I'm doing wrong?
  2. Is anyone here familiar with the process of creating HDRi maps in Affinity Photo for 3d modeling? I am struggling to find info on the correct process. I did find some documentation from Affinity, but there was just not very much info on it and I still am a bit confused on how to correctly set this up. Thanks to anyone that can throw me a video or more detailed explanation! Best, Jordan
  3. I suggest Affinity Photo to support exporting High Dynamic Range HEIF (HDR PQ 10-bit) from RAW/DNG/ProRAW file. It could really be a killer feature in photo editing across any OS platforms. It is especially beneficial to users who are using some recent MacBook Pros supporting HDR10/Dolby Vision (e.g. iPad Pro 2021 with XDR display). For web publishing compatibility, HDR-PQ AVIF could also be supported. Please kindly support.
  4. When I export the same image from Affinity Designer, there is a very clear difference in terms of brightness. To test it, I created a simple black to white gradient. Using the three different Colour Formats (with the same Colour Profile: sRGB IEC61966-2.1 (Linear)) in the "Document Setup..." panel, I exported three images. Here are RGB/8, RGB/16, and RGB/32 (HDR) respectively: Also here are the histograms for the three images, put through Affinity Photo: I am a self learning graphic designer so if this is intentional then I'm sorry, but shouldn't the images be virtually looking the same, save for the "banding" and the noises from PNG compression?
  5. Hi Guys, a strange thing, one of my users wanted to load a serie images to make a hdr with the hdr batch. But it ask only for AP file format. This is also by a file batch... I see on my desktop only the AP format, but can load normal jpg files to it. has someone this before? He used versie 1.10.5.1342 on the laptop and desktop (where it works). OS: win 10
  6. I have a copy of Affinity Photo. It says it's 1.10.4.1198. Unfortunately, I can't find any information on much of anything on the Affinity site, including exactly WHAT the current version of V1 is. And when I asked about updating, it sent me to the Microsoft Store to update for Windows... BUT, what I would like to do is export a set of images to Affinity from Lightroom, and have Affinity USE those images to do a "New HDR Merge". I can get the files there, but can't see HOW to tell Affinity to USE them to do an HDR. How do I do this? I have it set up as an external editor, but that's extremely limited - if I send three images, it creates .tif files. Instead I'm exporting directly, but either way, I need to know HOW to make Affinity USE the files. I figure this is something simple and stupid that I just don't know. Is there a command line parameter when calling photo.exe to tell it to do an HDR with the images it gets? Or there's got to be some other way...
  7. Hello I would like to propose a feature that would allow the user to switch between the orginal and the current adjustment of raw image in a faster way. I am aware of the syncing feature but there are times when it just takes a lot of steps to just view the orginal especially if you accidentaly synced the wrong adjustment. This new toggle button feature would just allow a quick way to switch from orginal. In a simple way, this is like a toggle button that disables all the effects/adjustments including the overlays.
  8. Using Affinity photo, I managed to turn a source image into an illustration using the G'MIC plugin and HDR merge functions. Used G'MIC Engrave and Autobalance, HDR Merge with dramatic tone map.
  9. i did try play little bit with HDR
  10. Hi all, I'm playing around with doing some various exposure HDR with AP and am in the Tone Mapping Persona. I have a spot (the moon actually) in an image and have outlined it with an elliptical mask....the trouble is, it is marked the mask like a typical quick mask with red...I cannot see under that red to be able to see what the adjustments are doing there. I've tried hitting the "m" button to see if that would turn the mask highlighting on/off....didn't work. Any suggestions out there as that I can't find much in the way of documentation or YT videos showing use of the mask on the Tone Mapping Persona.... Thank you in advance, cayenne
  11. I am very new to using the Affinity photo software and photo editing in general so please excuse my ignorance. I recently started shooting virtual tours and have been experiencing the same issue with most of my indoor photos inside of buildings where the open windows have ended up with very bright and washed out highlights. I have experimented with HDR 9-step bracketing and have improved my shots considerably but the window sections of the pictures are still too washed out for my liking. Most of them end up with a blue hue to them and I would like to understand how to remove that blue hue and improve the exposure of the outside scenery through the window. I have included a few sample shots to help illustrate what I am trying to describe. I am using the Insta One X2 camera which does have its limitations but it is all that I can afford at the moment and just wanted to be able to make the shots it produces as good as possible for now until I can upgrade to a better camera.

  14. I have Affinity 1.8.4 which works fine with my Mac OSX when using the HDR facility. My question is "Does the .afphoto file produced keep a record of the individual file names which were used generate the composite file, and is this information accessible?". I would comment that for a 300+ MB file size, one could reasonable expect this information to be readily available. Many apologies if I have missed it and the information is already there. Regards Nick Edwards 3 October 2020
  15. hi, cant wait to try affinity photo for windows, and my number 1 question is: does or will Randomcontrol "ArionFX for Photoshop" link plugin be supported? i am asking here as its not on your list: http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/ i'll buy affintiy photo definitely if it is best regards Reinhard Kepplinger
  16. Hello, and sorry if this has been posted before. I got to capture a nice headland shot of a lighthouse. I set up the camera to capture 5 images in a burst - in JPEG and DNG format. When I use AF HDR merge function with the JPEG images - the image comes out correctly, with a relatively flat horizon However, when I use the DNG images - and the HDR process starts; a pronounced curvature is given to the image. Not what I am looking for. The original DNG flies are exactly the same as the JPEG, with the same horizon aspects. Any pointers please? This on Affinity Photo 1.8.3, using iMac OS Catalina 10.15.6 I've attached screenshots of the image to show what I am on about - you can plainly see in the HDR DNG images the upper corners of the image have dropped against the text.
  17. Hej there, I am using an i7 Skylake with an GTX950M and 16GB RAM, still I get very very slow panorama and HDR renderings from Canon CR2 files. At the same time, very little CPU capacity is used (~15-20 %). Tonemapping panoramas takes easily a complete afternoon! I would love to see an performance upgrade in future versions (even if I have to pay for it). Otherwise, Affinity Photo is close to irreplacable as the generated images are excellent. Even the output using the default settings is much better than for example Aurora HDR, imho. Sincerely, Benedikt
  18. HDR with Photo and 32bit preview to true HDR monitor Asus PA32UCX. To output HDR from AP, you need to enable HDR On in WIn 10 to get the EDID working for HDR so the 32bit HDR selection is active in AP. But, what WIndows does is it seems to then create an ST2084 (PQ) to 2.2gamma EOTF to the monitor so SDR content looks correct. It then relies on the HDR content to be tagged correctly for the ST2084 EOTF to work. In AP, the HDR becomes active but with a 2.2gamma. I need to work in ST2084 for VFX/cinema/HDR for video. So it seems AP does not send a tag correctly to Windows to pick up the profile selection in colour settings. I have tried loading a ST2084 profile in both AP and Windows default etc and it always remains a 2.2gamma, not ST2084 EOTF. I have tried the OCIO config with ACES, but again it seems it is interacting with the ST2084 to 2.2G that Windows is applying. Any ideas please. HDR is not usable if the EOTF is wrong, regardless of getting the peak luminance to 1000nit and the primaries correct.
  19. Hi there I don't own Affinity Photo but considering purchasing. Simple question really, is it possible to create a HDR merge macro and then apply it to a batch process?
  20. I would love if you could add a way to process timelapse sequences shot in HDR so that if I merge the three exposures and edit them as a 32bits file I can select a folder that contains for example 300 frames (1 in 0EV, 1 in +3EV and 1 in -3EV) and batch the same way that Photomatix does. This is an example of a timelapse frame that I have never been able to process because of this slow process. Here it is https://500px.com/photo/48376766/perfect-sunset-at-%22el-remate%22-by-fabriccio-diaz-?from=user_library I would love to process a 720 (3 exposure = 240 blended frames) HDR Raw Sequence and not having to manually edit each frame!
  21. Hello everyone I would like to know if it is possible to do a flow hdr in automatic. Batch processing. I made dozens of HDR a day and I'm a little tired of staying behind my computer. any Idea? Thanx Franck
  22. I am trying to merge 3 photos taken on a Sony a6300 and Affinity Photo keeps crashing. This happens every time I try to select these 3 photos. I am on the latest version of Affinity. I am attaching the hdr options I have enabled as well as a copy of my PC settings. I have Affinity setup to use my graphics card as the renderer. My graphics card is a NVDIA GTX 760. I have validated that the drivers on my graphics card are up to date as well. I have also uploaded the raw files to my google drive. They can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VTGhsGbHLvUmMe2phK2Qg8OY1r_FpOgo/view?usp=sharing Please let me know if there is any other information that you need.
  23. Hi, Using latest 1.8.3.641 on Win10-64, I try to HDR-merge 3 TIFF files, and the program crashes (closes abruptly with no message) early during the merge process, if auto-align is enabled. The TIFF files were exported by Capture One 20, originally from Olympus E-M1II RAW files. Oddly, merging those original Olympus RAW files directly in Affinity Photo succeeds, but unfortunately chromatic aberrations are not corrected so it's not a valid option. I attached crash report files. e6321abd-9b84-42a3-9c80-3eecd079bf61.dmp attachment_Log.txt metadata
  24. Hi Affinity team. During the last days I tested the Windows version of Affinity Photo 1.5.1 and checked out those parts most important to me: RAW processing, HDR/Tone mapping and stitching Panoramas. (The video tutorials are great for newbies concerning your software.) I am happy to see all these features under a common hood and working reasonably well (although there are issues like the wrong histogram displayed in Develop persona which will refrain me from using Photo as default RAW software for now.) What I want to achieve: For years now I'm accustomed to create HDR images from a single RAW file instead a series of JPG or RAW files. The benefit is that there are no problems with motion (and thus ghosting) in the image, and no softness as a potential side-effect of the automatic alignment of handheld shots. Today's DSLR cameras create RAW images which can easily compensate 3 EV steps. (Depending on sensor size and ISO, the downside can be higher noise in dark areas, but that's acceptable for me.) My conventional approach is to develop 3-5 differently exposed JPG images (usually with different noise reduction settings) and then creating the HDR from these. This approach is very cumbersome with Affinity Photo, which does not even remember the RAW conversion settings I last used by default. Once a RAW file is developed, the Develop persona is closed and I have to start over for the next exposure. (In contrast to a dedicated raw converter like Canon's DPP or Nikon's NX-D where this is a no-brainer and easily done.) But maybe Affinity has a better approach? What if you could develop the raw file and apply a tone mapping without JPGs inbetween? Lets see, Photo Persona works in 32 bit, and RAW files can be developed to 32 bit HDR. Sounds promising. 1. I import the RAW file, disable applying the tone curve and leave the exposure-related settings untouched. 2. Then I put the developed 32 bit image into the Tone mapping persona -> Voilá, a developed HDR image. And what if I have a panorama of single RAW images which needs HDR processing? 1. You can start a "New batch job", select the RAW files to process and choose EXR as output format. 2. Then you can continue creating the panorama with "New panorama" and select the EXR files as shown in the HDR panorama video tutorial. 3. After the panorama has been stitched, it can be tone mapped in the Tone Mapping persona. Cool - this is a real time saver and more flexible regarding adjustments compared to my previous workflows which would mean first tone mapping every HDR image and then stitching the (hopefully equally exposed) JPGs together. Matthias.
  25. I have used the lightroom plugin to edit three bracketed shots in affinity photo. So I have three tifs duly loaded but the only option seems to be New HDR which only allows me to add from hard disk. Have I missed something?
