  1. Hello, A quick question on opening RAW images in Affinity. When I open RAW files saved in IMac photos in Affinity, they appear in JPEG format. How can I ensure that they remain in RAW format? Thank you
  2. I'm using Photo for Windows and having trouble exporting a Photo image to a jpeg file. When in the Photo persona and working on an image, if I select "file", then "export", then choose jpeg format and click on the "export" button the "save as" window pops up and lists "Affinity files" (which is grayed out) as the only available file type and not jpeg as I expected. I've tried other changing some of the settings in the "export settings" dialog box to see if that might allow me to save as a jpeg. No dice. Pretty much the same story using the export persona (not surprisingly). I would have thought that, since I selected the jpeg format, that Affinity Photo would have generated an enlightening error message. I've watched tutorial videos and read some on exporting, but haven't found any mention of this problem or its possible causes. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  3. Hello, Love the software. Have converted from Adobe and am really pleased so far. Would be great to be able to do a dual export. To create a large jpeg at full resolution with a Profoto/ aRGB profile attached and simultaneously a ~2,800px wide jpeg with an sRGB profile and a bit of compression. Thanks! Ben
  4. Hi! I just bought Affinity Photo for Mac. While I was trying to get used to all of the features, I tried exporting a JPG photo, taken with a D7200 and with a size of 3.2 MB and the resulting file with 100% quality and no modifications has a size of 23.36 MB. Why is this happening and what can I do? I mean, it's the same file, it's not modified but has a bigger size after exporting. I'd expect a file with the same size or at least a similar size. Thank you!
  5. When exporting JPEG files, the default preset is always "JPEG(High quality)". Does anyone know how to change the default present for saving JPEG? It would be great if I could change the default one to the preset I created. Thank you very much. Regards, Sleepy
  6. After editing in Afinity Photo, I export to jpeg. But it appears with some high key patches all over the photo when using Fastone Image Viewer. But it appears correctly in Explorer thumbnails.
  7. I think a really handy option for the 'export' dialogue would be 'Space around image'. I regularly send logo proofs to customers as JPEG or PNG. When exporting selections, the resulting image always perfectly frames the objects selected (which is good). However sometimes I like to add a border to make the image more easily viewable to the client. Could there be an option to add a certain number of pixels evenly around an exported bitmap? I don't always want to adjust the artboard or add another object to achieve this.
  8. Hello, I'm new to Affinity photo, I've learned some of the editing features. I have done a photo shoot the other day and I edited the pictures. Naturally I saved them and as well exported them as Jpegs (so that they can open up on their PC as I have a Mac). I put all the pictures on a usb for them to open, on my computer it says .jpg but then on their PC it is not jpg. I don't know what to do… it's frustrating as I want them to be able to open the pictures! Help :)
  9. New to Affinity Photo, and so far, what I've seen looks good, then it all comes to an abrupt halt. Trying to do my forum avatar pic, I decide to use my new Serif software to resize my picture. All going good, until I come to "Save As", so that I can save my image as a JPEG. Even this forum doesn't recognise AFphoto files! :huh: Serif - the product is good, but why do I not have the option to save my processed file to what I want? For this example, JPEG would be enough. In the future however, it would nice to be able to convert my images to other file formats - such as DNG etc. How after processing my images - or friends images, as I do sometimes - how do I send them back their image - so that they can open it on their systems? :(
  10. When I try to open a RAW file from Photos using Affinity Photo, the file becomes a JPEG file. But when I work on a photo in Photos usinf Affinity extension, I am working on a RAW file. What am I doing wrong with Affinity photo?
  11. I have noticed that when I export a JPEG file from Affinity, the resultant JPEG is always darker, as if the Shadow settings had changed during the export. I am using JPEG Best quality, Lanczos (Separable), RGB-8 bit and Apple RGB. I have tried using Adobe RGB (1998) but still had a darker picture. The Embed ICC profile box is unchecked. The Progressive and Embed Metadata boxes are both checked. Does anyone know why the exported JPEGS are showing up darker than their images in Photo Persona? I usually export directly from Photo Persona using the FILE>EXPORT route and not Export Persona as Export Persona tends to overwrite any identically named file without warning. I have searched for this issue and found nothing. If anyone knows of a thread, please let me know. Thank you.
  12. Hi There, I have just bought Affinity Designer and am just learning to use the tools. I have previously used Illustrator and am finding the transition relatively straightforward and really like the programme. One thing I used to be able to do in illustrator was to drag and drop an image into the swatches tab and then use that image as a tile fill to create prints/patterns (useful when designing clothing). I also used clipping masks for similar effect. Do either of these functions exist in designer or would I need to purchase Photo as well? Many thanks
  13. I can understand that afphoto saves all the history and the original can be recovered, similar to Photoshops PSD, In Photoshop you can flatten the image and have the choice of saving as a JPEG. In Affinity you have to export to save as a JPEG, surely that is what flatten should do.
  14. Hi I've just tested a couple of JPEGs with clipping paths - originally created in Photoshop. I open them in Affinity Photo, make no changes at all, and save the file. Upon opening them again to check them in Photoshop, the clipping path has been removed.
  15. Hello All... New member here. Experienced PS user... I am sturggling with creating a web graphic with a transparent background. I feel it's something simple I am just missing but I've searched other threads and most address issues in AD but this is in AP. What am I missing? The export doesn't have a "save for web" or a transparency checkbox. When I select the image and choose "save selection without background" in the export I still get a white box when placed on a web page. I'm used to this being a simple PNG save in PS, so I'm not seeing it. Thanks for any help.
  16. Very impressed with Photo so far. I use an old version of Photoshop Elements for saving photos for the web. There is one feature on that which I use all the time, and that is the photo preview. I can adjust the compression for jpegs and see how it will look. It would be great to have this feature included in Affinity Photo as well. One smaller feature on PE is when a section of a photo is copied and then a new file created, there is the option for the new file to have the canvas the same size as the file on the clipboard. I know it's easy to crop the canvas to the photo size in AP, it would just be nice to be able to do it in one step rather than two. But love the software, and looking forward to the final version.
  17. When I exported the image from Affinity to my desktop it looked fine. (I was using the Mac software Preview to view it) however when I tried to send the image via iMessage, it became very dark. Is there a setting that can fix this problem?
  18. Hi, I am trying to export a jpeg version of a file I have been working on. There doesn't seem to be a simple way of exporting the file at its actual pixel dimensions. Rather I have to manually enter the file size in pixels which seems a faff. I'm sure with earlier versions of the beta I could simply leave the pixel size fields blank and it would export at native size? Many thanks.
  19. Hi, I have a few images in jpeg format.Now I want it in mjpeg format and view it as a video.How can it be done.whether is it possible.How can it be done? Thanks ashwin
