  1. In the New Batch Job dialog the selection titled Available Macros is not displaying the macros correctly. For example in my Library Panel I have these macro categories in this order: Default Uplift - Epic Skies Image Styles Editing Macros - Marvin Effects - Marvin Here is what happens in the list of Available Macros on the New Batch Job dialog: Default - displays the Macros for Default category. This is correct. Uplift - Epic Skies - displays Macros for Default category. This is wrong. Image Styles - displays the last seven macros in the Editing Macros - Marvin category. This is wrong. Editing Macros - Marvin - displays three items from Editing Macros - Marvin and the items of Effects - Marvin. This is wrong. Effects - Marvin - displays the contents for the Default category. This is wrong Here is how I got into this situation: 1. When upgrading I selected existing data in V1 to be brought into V2. 2. When I started to back process some files and reference the macros I saw the problem and figuring something we astray during the upgrade process. 3. To correct the problem I exported the Categories, then deleted them from the Library Panel, and then imported the Categories again. The macros run fine. However, they cannot be executed as a part of a batch process because although they appear in the Available Macros dialog they are not found because (and this is my best guess) the indexed item in the dropdown list does not in reality relate to the actual position/local of the macro. Therefore, the macro selected is not executed and no files are processed. Also, no error handling seems to be done and the program just exits without doing the batch process and no error message is displayed. I don't see a way a user can correct this situation short of maybe putting all macros in the Derfault category. And, I am not eager to do that. Hope this information helps in identifying the cause of situation. Mac mini M1 (2020) Monterey 12.6.1 PROBLEM RESOLVED: This morning the problem was resolved. I simply kept shifting the orders of the macro categories and when I hit on an order that worked I stopped shifting. My best guess is that one of the categories that was moved to the bottom is corrupt. Anyway, there is nothing that the testers or developers have to do on this matter. Peace Marvin
  2. Hi How can we Save and then reload a "Batch Job" ? I have a couple of different Batch Jobs that I have to do on a regular basis. It would be far easier to save the setup, than having to check all the correct boxes again. Cheers
  3. I'm very new to Affinity Photo so am getting to know where it really shines and where it falls short. By no means was I adept at Photoshop, but I found it essential for recording Actions. Unfortunately I've run into some issues using Affinity Photo's Macros in Batch jobs. The main one being that if I have a folder full of images that are in different aspect ratios (3:2, 4:3) it seems I am unable to record a Macro that resizes to a specific width or height ONLY. When I record a Macro and resize a 4:3 file to say 800px wide, with the size locked the height of course becomes 600px. If I run that Macro as a Batch on the folder of mixed aspect ratio images, the images that are in 3:2 ratio are resized to 800px x 600px, so they're badly distorted. So the Macro records the dimensions of BOTH edges when the resizing takes place, rather than only the edge you actually edit (as is the case in Photoshop). Is there an obvious solution to this that I am missing?
  4. I've been waiting to buy just for this one feature... I created a macro to auto adjust white balance, color, contrast and levels. Saved it to the library. Opened the New Batch job. In the panel, I selected all the images (64 of them) into the left panel. It was populated and showed the image thumbs and file names. I left the save to location as original so the new files would overwrite the old ones. Changed the save as file type to jpg and made sure the sizing was empty and the A box check-marked so that the size would not change. Selected and added my macro from the list to the box on the left. At no time during that process or at the end, did the OK button light up and become active. I watched the video and the OK button was lit up the whole time. What am I missing in the process? I did reboot after installing the software. I've also tested the macro and it does work. Just the Batch - which was the major reason for the purpose at this point that isn't working. I'm running a year old MacBookPro with a Core i7 and Sierra loaded. Thanks Chimper
  5. The way for resizing and sharpening on the batch job need to be improved. It's the most common task. Resizing image with macro end up strange aspect ratio when all source images do not have the same aspect ratio. But using the resize option on the Batch Job window make sharping with macro useless because macros are applied before resizing. So I think the option for improvement will be: - add an order option to the macros to see if they should be applied before or after resizing. - add the sharpen filer option directly on the Batch Job window. - improve macro functionality to keep resizing the same aspect ratio for all images that have different aspect ratio.
  6. hello, I need to know if you planned to add an option to preserve EXIF data and fill some fields on the "new batch job" function... Need feedback ASAP
  7. Hi In the text fields, only lowercase is applied. When using upper case, nothing happens. And there are no uppercase warnings. Windows, AP 1.8.3.641 Thanks carl123
  8. I want to create a batch job as a macro, means I can restart it anytime without creating the batch job each time. Example. I put some photos in a folder A. Two macros I have created apply the action AutoColor and then AutoContrast. Then, the photos are saved to the folder B. I know how to do this with a batch job, but I donĀ“t want to create each time a new batch job, because I have to repeat this sequence of actions or macros each day. How can I do it? I mean I just want to select somewhere a batch job named "AutoColor and AutoContrast" and then the macros are executed as described. That's something I used to do in Photoshop before.
  9. Hi, I have a Mid 2015 15 inch Macbook Pro running the OSX 10.14.4 and Affinity photo 1.7.1. I've been experiencing some immediate crash issues since previous Affinity Photo 1.6.6 whenever I tried to launch a batch job (won't even show the first dialog window) and the same happens if I try to saved a recorded a Macro. Application just die without further information, just quits immediately. A few months back I heard about the new release (1.7) so I just waited for it to come out hoping this new software release will solve this weird behavior. But some far no luck at all. I've run some basic "troubleshooting" procedures such as uninstall/re-install, update software version, update OS version; but still any luck. Any ideas of what can be the cause for such annoying behavior?
  10. Currently use AP(v 1.7 Mac ) to convert most of my photos to JPEG from Canon Raw files and each photo that has been processed is noticeably darker than the RAW file, am I missing a setting somewhere ??
  11. I need help! Everytime I do a batch job from RAW to JPG, Affinity saves all the new JPG's much darker than before! Can anyone help me to avoid that? Greetings
  12. Hi, I'm finally preparing to move away from Aperture, which I still use for its DAM, which remains by far the best, as far as I can see. Sigh. I have several thousand old tiff files, that are unsupported in 64bit (you can test this by starting up in 64bit mode on you Mac). Happily, whilst AFP 1.6.7 choked and crashed horribly trying to batch convert these old .tif files to modern versions, via New Batch Job, AFP 1.7beta cruises through them with much appreciated speed and solidity. So far I have made a >2,000 batch conversion. Problem/Question: Obviously the Batch Job is producing a new Tiff LZW file, which has a new date. Is there any way within AFP that I can set the date to the same as the original file (I can't find anything) or does anyone have any suggestions how I can keep the original file date? I suppose it could be done in the Finder via Applescript, but this is beyond my capabilities. Seems like this is something that could be desirable for quite a few people.
  13. I have selected adobe 1998 as the colorspace in my SonyRX10M4 which is also set to give me raw data .ARW files. When I import them as a batch job to Affinity for processing into .tif files and then save them back to the original folder the colorspace changes to the, less desirable, sRGB 1996 colorspace. I can't find any way of making sure that the colorspace I chose in my camera remains the same the saved .tif file after Affinity has processed it. HELP
  14. I'm having a problem with Photo adding a white border when I batch-process converting Affinity files to JPG. This doesn't happen when I export individual files using the file menu. Am I missing a setting in the batch job dialogue that would stop this happening?
  15. The ability to drag & drop folder in the batch window. This will speed up the work.
  16. I am new to Affinity. I am running the trial at the moment but I am liking it and will almost certainly but it when the trial ends. However, there are a few work flows which I have not managed to get as smooth as I like. One example is resizing in batch jobs. Is there anyway to save commonly used settings such as file type, size, and quality? E.g. so I could quickly resize a batch to jpg, 900x900, at 90%. I see the macros but, as far as I can figure out, they don't do this job.
  17. Windows version when in Batch Job, does not show the Macro Library or allow macros to be accessed. This is an essential part of image processing for me and, I imagine, many others too. I suspect it is available to Mac users, however.
  18. I'd like to have an option for not to enlarge photos over 100% in batch job when I specify W or H size. I use batch job for resizing photos for web and I want to resize only for big ones, not enlarge smaller ones to reach W or H size.
