  1. I use Bridge as a DAM to manage & search my photoshop and RAW image files. I want to switch from Photoslop to Affinity Photo, but I noticed that .afphoto files only generate an AP icon in Bridge, no image (see below). But when I export the layered image file from AP as a layered 16-bit .tiff file, it appears normally in Bridge. And when I open the .tiff file in AP again, all the layers are present for further editing. Question: Are there any disadvantages to saving image files edited in AP as layered .tiff files instead of .afphoto files relative to compatibility, future editing and final image quality? Thanks.
  2. Hi all, Is there any reason to save and work in afphoto rather than TIFF? With afphoto I cannot view my photos on any application other than AP. I can't browse through and enjoy a selection of them without either opening them all in AP or exporting them all as something else. If I then make further changes to the original file(s) I need to ensure that I've deleted these previous exported versions to avoid confusion. So, what I do at the moment is make my edits to the original file and then export it as TIFF. If I require further adjustments I can reopen the TIFF and carry on. I close the original file without saving. I now have the original, unchanged file, and an edited TIFF. Not an afphoto in sight! Does anyone know of a reason why I shouldn't be doing that? And if not then what is the purpose of afphoto? Cheers Paul
