  1. Hi ! When I develop my raw files (CR2 of Canon 6D) the DPI are to 72. I read Affinity Photo take the default DPI in Exif datas, but I shooted in 300 DPI and when I try in Photoshop the DPI are to 300. Then I try with another raw file (NEF) and the default DPI are to 300. I tested with Affinity Photo version 1.8.3 (641). Maybe Affinity read badly the Canon 6D Raw Files ? I searched how manualy change the DPI in Develop Personna but I fond anything. Thanks for any help you can give to me!
  2. I have been using Affinity photo for Windows since it came out without problems but today when I go to open any RAW file it is very, very, very dark. Then when I adjust it to appear a normal brightness and develop it, it comes out way too bright! I have never had this problem. I am using the latest release. I have tried to repair the installation but this does not help nor does a reboot. Please help!
  3. When I save an image as afphoto after developed, its file size end up strange. As if it's still RGB/16 or RGB/32. (of course I converted it to RGB/8) it's the same on beta. Exporting jpg/psd/tif doesn't have the problem. Also if I open the jpg exported and save as afphoto. it is fine. to moderators: Please move this topic to other than FAQ
  4. 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
  5. HI. Both photos taken with nikon p1000. The first loads (283)well, the second tragically as raw. I have attached files. at 502 you can see a strong distortion what on jpg this photo from the camera I do not have. What's happening? affinity photo version DSCN0283.NRW DSCN0502.NRW
  6. Does anyone know why I have a black line down the right side of my Raw Photo's taken on my Fuji XT3? There's an uneven black line on all the RAW photos but not on the jpegs. The camera is new but the lens is second hand. A 23mm F2, could it be that? It doesn't appear to be on the shoots I used the 35mm for. Is there a fault processing the image or have I got a setting wrong? Or is it the lens, and why would it be on the Raw but not the Jpeg? Any help would be much appreciated.
  7. I have a Canon PowerShot SX70 which produces CR3 raw file. All these images here are screenshots of at the default zoom level (~16.2%). It took this photo of a Quince flower. Here is the image as loaded into the Develop persona: And here it is after some adjustment of the exposure to increase the brightness without over exposing the pale petals (keeping the right edge of the histogram just off the right-hand edge). The petals are fine, but the rest of the image looks a bit dark, but that does not bother me. When I then click on Develop, I get this: The petals look rather over-exposed, but the background leave are now well exposed. If I chose not to apply the tone curve, I get the final image like this: which looks fine for exposure, but seems rather flat. The jpg image produced by the camera looks like this: I actually prefer this last one in terms of contrast and exposure, but I am surprised that I cannot get my raw development to look like this. Any suggestions? John
  8. Hey! Here I will some photos of my cats (Marx and Engels - yes, they are red cats haha) which I take with my Nikon D90 and edit in Photo afterwards. Enjoy them and I do appreciate constructive feedback! Chris
  9. It seems that support for the Canon CR3 format is a long time coming as the first camera with native CR3 images was the EOS M50 and was released on 26 February ... As it is now September is there any likelihood we will see native RAW support for CR3 images soon? This is the new Canon format and will be in all new cameras.
  10. about the RAW part I want to share my questions with you : I'm a fan of 32 bit linear development, I accept and assume that I can only use certain linear modes, and only some tool. Typically I start with the clarity tool,in conjunction with the detail tool Refinement after I take care of the left edge of the histogram in interaction with the shadow slider Then I take care of the right edge of the histogram in interaction with the highlight slider No color correction here. Conduct well, at the end of this step on the screen, we get not so bad results the preview screen especially in borderline cases ETTR or overexpose!! But after I click on develop the quality drops! (stay always in 32 bit) Sometimes muddy appearance, loss of precision. As if the "compilation" had slipped in 16 bit internall, or use aggressive rounding.. or had attenuated the clarity tool too much , or some parameter. I take longtime for optimise, in vain... It's no always possible readjust in persona with same efficient ( why ?) During this phase you use a buffer or a process by node ? well, there I suppose that you will not answer me, said differently the order of the stages seems to matter, can you confirm? Your developers should fairly easily resolve this. Please can you answer me on this subject, give a feedback please. On WIN10
  11. Hi, I was editing some images on the iPad yesterday. I'm trying to force myself to use the iPad more for photo editing because I'm tired of doing a quick iPad photo edit, then have to recreate a similar but more detailed edit on the desktop... double the work. I've grown increasingly more trusting of the Photo app in general. I've had some "serious edits" done solely in Photo on the iPad... printed large and was happy with the results and accuracy. So, back to my question... I was editing about a dozen images yesterday in Photo on the iPad. They were all RAW images, shot with nearly the same settings of basically the same subject matter. I found myself doing pretty much exactly the same preliminary RAW edit on all of them. Is there a way that I can somehow save RAW edit settings, and them batch apply them to multiple RAW images on the iPad? I'm guessing not, but I thought I'd ask. If not for RAW, is that possible for JPG sources?
  12. Opening a Sony a7 iii uncompressed RAW file just gives a black screen. I can only find a list from 2016 of cameras you support. Is there an updated list, and when might this camera get on it? Thanks
  13. Hi, I'm recently trying to move from Adobe products to Affinity Photo. currently I use both, as find the RAW processing in Affinity Photo sub-par yet. wanted to share some quick thoughts what could be improved: 1. when I process my ORF files, somehow the image is a bit wider than in viewfinder or camera JPEG, or processed with ACR. it's good that Affinity Photo has those extra pixels, but could we please default to the image dimensions that match camera JPEGs and allow user to get extra pixels on request? 2. I miss 'color profiles' from ACR. the ones that are 'adobe color' or 'adobe portrait'. I also think they have some special sauce to it, as I find colors from ACR more pleasing. 3. no auto WB? and no 'pick color in image to be white'? seriously? 4. could we please default lens vignette correction to off? it's good that Affinity Photo has this, but most time I like my pictures without this option.
  14. I have a new Gen 7 iPad and have installed Affinity Photo on it. I import my Sony raw files to the iPad using a card reader and the Files app, saving the files in a specific folder I've created. If I open Affinity Photo (AP), I can't see any way of opening a file from a Files folder however I can get around this by opening Files, selecting a file and Sharing it with AP. This way it opens up in AP in the Develop persona. I make some edits and then hit Develop which takes me to the Edit persona. I back out of here and I believe AP automatically saves the file in an unknown format somewhere in the AP app. Now if I decide I want to have another go at developing the raw file, I go back to FIles and share it with AP again. This time however it opens up the previously developed file rather than the original raw file. So is this normal? Is there any better way of dealing with raw files so that I do get the option of starting a fresh raw development? I'd be interested to hear what process others use with raw files Thanks Dave
  15. Llevo casi dos años con la app. Tengo que admitir que con pequeños proyectos va de maravilla. Sin embargo tengo el iPad Air 3 (2019) y se cierra constantemente al editar en RAW. Espero que se solucione o que se pongan en contacto conmigo para ayudarme gracias.
  16. Hi, Was not able to find the same issue, only somewhat related with raw photos being opened with purple tint. Basically the issue is written in the title. To elaborate - when Fuji S5pro raw file (RAF) is converted to DNG using Adobe DNG converter and then opened in Affinity Photo, one can see that colors are way off. Below one can see a screenshot of freely available RAF file from here Fuji raw files and a converted to DNG one: One can also see that DNG has one pixel less horizontally. Tried opening DNG in open source RawTherapee and it opens the same as RAF. Meaning that there is definitely some issue with Affinity Photo here. It is the same in Affinity Photo 1.8 beta. Hoping that will be fixed. Thanks in advance!
  17. Salve , sto cercando di sviluppare un dng in publisher dirottandolo in photo . In a. photo mi viene segnalato della mancanza di un livello pixel da selezionare .é possibile risolvere ?Saluti
  18. If I load the raw pictures (.arw) of the sony alpha 6000 camera in affinity photo they are unsharp compared to the same picture as jpeg, also after the developing procedure.
  19. Hi, I'm very much a beginner with Affinity Photo after years of only editing my photos in RAW form in apps like Lightroom and Capture One. What I've always understood is that a JPEG file is the final form, with edits 'baked in'. The idea of adding an HSL or brightness and contrast layer to a JPEG file seems very strange - surely this will push a compressed image too far? I understand adding pixel layers with creative effects or combining images, but what is the expert opinion on adjustments? My expected workflow will still be doing essential edits in a RAW editor, but should I export the end result as a TIFF file, for example, for more creative work in Affinity Photo in order to preserve quality and avoid artefacts?
  20. Hi, I would like to know if there is a possibility tweak multiple RAW images with a workflow similar to the one offered by Canon's Digital Photo Professional or Lightroom. I know it is not generally ok to mention competing solutions, but this is the simplest way of explaining. So, what I want to do is the following: import a batch of photos in the Develop Module, create a recipe for one photo, copy -> paste it to al photos in the batch, and after those general adjustments are done go to each photo and make some finer adjustments, then export the files (as JPG or whatever format I want to use later maybe for some more post processing). Importing and exporting file by file takes a lot of time, while importing a batch of RAWs and only applying the same recipe to all does not allow fine tuning them separately. This workflow, described above, saves a lot of time and I cannot figure out how it can be done using the Affinity software. Basically this is the only thing that keeps me from switching as of now. Thanks in advance! P.S. I know some may say that Affinity is not an alternative to other packages so that one would switch, but I really don't wanna go through multiple things retouch a photo. This is just a hobby for me.
  21. Very impressed by Affinity Photo, and one of the attractions was the ability to deal with RAW files. I have a Canon Powershot SX30is which does not natively produce RAW files, but with CHDK firmware it will save as DNG. When I import these into Affinity (or view them in Faststone), they have a large amount of noise which seems to to be like the descriptions of stuck pixels. Jpgs created in camera at the same time are clear of noise. I am able to clear the coloured pixels fairly well by setting Luminance and Colours to around 90% in the Noise Reduction panel, but this leaves smaller black pixels - lots of them! I have read up on dead pixels and hot pixels but these shots were around 1/30th of a second. Any ideas would be very welcome! Thanks
  22. Hi, In my work I use a color checker ( grey18%) and I need to set the white balance through the color picker ( by selecting the color checker in the first image of the shooting). thanks!
  23. @James Ritson provides a detailed explanation regarding the Workflow of RAW files in Affinity Photo in the following thread:
  24. Do you plan to support Sony arw raw format from Sony RX100 VII in near future? Thanks forma short note! Norbert
  25. Opening a Canon (.cr2) RAW file (ISO 500) in Affinity Photo (V 1.6.7) results in corners that appear to be burnt out, as though by a bright lamp. The corners are black and then there's a bright white line that bleeds into the photo a bit. This is on an iMac running Mojave 10.14. It doesn't happen with every file. I can't predict when it will happen. The "burnt out" corners only appear when loaded into Affinity. They are not present when the file is viewed in Finder. It persists when I press Develop and are also there after I export to .jpeg. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
