Please allow the user to manually choose the manufacturer and lens model as Adobe does in Adobe Camera Raw. This lets the photographer select the correct lens in the lens correction database when the photographer uses a completely manual lens for which the RAW file will not have the data for manufacturer, lens model, f/stop etc. Similarly, when using electronic lens adapters such as the Metabones adapter for Canon EOS lenses on Sony alpha series mirrorless cameras bodies (e.g. a7r2), the Raw file EXIF data has the wrong manufacture and lens model because the electronic adapter must make the Canon lens appear to be a Sony lens model of the same focal length and f/stop. For example, if the widely used Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM is attached via a Metabones adapter to a Sony a7r2 body, the EXIF data records the lens as a Sony "24-70mm F2.8 G SSM II". The other EXIF data for focal length the zoom was at and exposure f/stop are correct. In Adobe Camera Raw's lens corrections, I can simply select the Lens Profile Correction for the "Canon EOS 24-70mm f/2.8 L II USM" and have the proper lens corrections applied. Similarly, if I use a Rokinon 14mm f/2.8 completely manual, no electronics, lens on a Sony a7r2 body, I can select that Lens Profile Correction in Adobe Camera Raw despite the lack of any EXIF lens data in the Raw file. At present, the only way to have Affinity Photo Develop apply the correct LensFun database corrections is to use ExifTool and change the data in the Raw file before Affinity opens the file. This is both time-consuming and I would rather not tamper with a proprietary Raw file format. Thank you.
I've only had APh for a couple of weeks (windows version) and this morning needed to use it with a batch of 50 or so RAW files from a shoot. Typically there are a few corrections that can be applied to all RAW files from a shoot . This is very straightforward in, and a vital part of, Photoshop's ACR. So I assumed that it would be just as easy in APh, But I could not find any way to process these 50 images in APh Please could someone tell me what I am missing here. Many thanks
Unless I´m really overlooking some setting somewhere, I cannot find any provision for coming back to where I was before going the Photo Persona route, so after processing a raw file in the Develop Persona! Sure, I can activate the Develop Persona again, but all settings will reset to default at that point. Worse: going back to the Develop Persona will not reload from the initial raw file, but just make all adjustments as already set, available but at their default values, not what I had set them to before pressing Develop - the button next to Cancel, not the one for Develop Persona. That´s a nice way of going beyond some maximum: i.e. you can blank out a whole photograph by repeatedly doing it that way, each time pushing exposure and brightness all the way to the right, black point to the left... It is also rather destructive. Once set some Clarity, Contrast on the Basic panel and Detail Refinement on the Details panel for instance, I will have to restart from scratch (so the raw file) to correct if a customer decides that I have overdone it! Please do not point me to a blur filter in the Photo Persona: sure, loads of possibilities there, not as convenient methinks. In short, I´m really missing my XMPs and, related to that, the possibility of just storing that very small footprint text file, instead of the huge file size of an AFPHOTO format. That is, when I really don´t need anything from the Photo Persona, of course. Are there thoughts on bringing something like that to Affinity Photo?
