  1. I'm not using the AP on daily basis, thus using a lot of time to find out how to proceed. AP is very versatile on vast selection of all kind of useful features. All are described only for WHAT but not for HOW. That's why I'm now asking help to probably a very simple task, but HOW: Example tasks 1) Old slide scans with strong change in colour balance which can not be corrected by white balance adjustment, but using histogram level adjustment the correction can be done in most cases perfect. 2) A bunch of photos shooting through coloured window (thermal filtering e.g. in skyscrapers), process is about the same as in case above. How to save the level settings and how to automate the adjustment to the rest of the same batch?
  2. Some suggestions for improving batch tasks. 1. Batch processing tasks should be able to support the selection of source folders on the user interface, and the program will traverse to obtain the files and process them at runtime. 2. In the process of file output, if the user selects output files to other folders and selects folders when selecting files to be processed, each selected folder should maintain the structural relationship between its subfolders and its files after processing. 3. hope to develop the interface of batch processing to external programs, so that users can interact with affinity photo in programming. In a word, I think batch processing is a very important function of graphics processing program. A powerful batch processing module can help people save a lot of time when dealing with a large number of tasks.
  3. Hi Everyone, I have a lot of "7 image exposure bracketing Raw" Canon 1dx mark 2 files. The problem is that it takes a lot of time to process each photo. I have a macbook pro 15" 2018 i9 32gb 560x gpu. The questions are: 1. Are there any settings i need to change in order to speed up the process, because it looks like metal gpu acceleration is off (my current settings screenshot attached)? 2. Is there an option to create a batch job for all of my 7 part HDR Merge photos, so ill be able to leave it processing and come back in an hour instead of clicking every few minutes each time? Thanx a lot in advance.
  4. I have 469 large .psd images for which I want to make low resolution .jpg files. I have tried twice and each time some of the images end up being squeezed or stretched. The original images vary in size and aspect ratio. Some are portrait, some are landscape. What I have tried to do is set a macro to so that the width of any height of any image is reduced to 240 pixels with the Height and Width locked. This only seems to work properly on images having the same H:W ratio as the one open when I record the macro. Is there any solution to this in Affinity? I am fairly certain I did this numerous times in Photoshop before I switched to Affinity. I am running Affinity 1.8.6 on Mac OS 11.0.1. Thanks
  5. Hi, I was doing a batch process for a timelapse. I did some inpainting to remove dust and unwanted objects. All of it was saved in the Macro. However while batch processing, all the other adjustments worked fine except for inpainting, and the unwanted objects, dust was still visible in the batch. Is it a bug or I'm doing something wrong. Thanks
  6. I've modified 30+ photos and saved all as .afphoto files. Can I use these to batch process to .jpegs? I've watched the tutorials and searched for answers but I'm stuck. Every time I try to process into .jpegs absolutely nothing happens. I've got the Batch window up and it always indicates "No Jobs Running." What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help.
  7. I'm new to Infinity although I used to use Serif Page Plus from the very first version years ago. Great to find a suite of one-time purchase design and editing programs - I've bought all three - that I can use on my new MacBook Pro. Although searching through Help and the forum, I am having trouble finding out how to SAVE a Batch Process set of instructions. Do I really have to set it up from scratch each time I want to run it? Also I can't seem to reduce the size of a mix of landscape and portrait photos without one dimension being squashed - I do have the A for Aspect ticked and have tried putting the same number in each of the W and H windows. I have also tried W/2 and H/2 as suggested in the boxes which didn't work for me and also 50%. Please can you tell me what I'm missing or doing wrong?
  8. Hello. I am working on comic book lettering and using Groups to prepare the balloons for future slicing to PNG format (they are inputs for comic book composer we are developing). I try to keep it clean and organized by using simple naming code "LANGUAGE platform ###" e.g CZE mobil 001, CZE mobil 002, etc. Sometimes I need to split the ballon and/or add new one which messing up the order. I usually put there an extra letter (001a, 001b...) but I would prefer to keep numbers only. Is there any chance to rename all groups in 1 step by defining syntax I described above? I found the batch renaming for Slices is not possible but what about the Groups, Layers...?
  9. Hello, I was wondering if it's possible to batch process files with a few macros that don't come by default and if this is as I've watched tutorials about adding certain macros one that works like this? 1) resize (by default available) 2) to then drag out the area you wish to crop (not to just save into a folder) to as sometimes this done automatically doesn't crop the exact area wanted. 3) then to save the file after this before moving on to next file and repeat process. So the batch process works it's way 1 by 1 through the files effectively speeding up what would be the manual process you'd normally do. Kind regards
  10. Hi there, I’m fairly new to the affinity programs but I have been using the Adobe suite for some time, and I’m struggling with a few basics… any help would be very gratefully appreciated! Affinity Photo: When saving images for the web in photoshop I just use save for web and devices. Is this the same as similar as using export and choosing jpg? I can’t find any way to batch process images to crop to both landscape and portrait images so that they are all a specific height and width. Is there a way to do this? As a work around I decided to crop them all. So I set up a preset but this is now greyed out and I can’t use it anyway! I also thought maybe I could crop all of the open images and then do some sort of bulk export but I can’t find a way of doing that? Publisher: Does publisher somehow make you files much smaller? I opened an ai doc in Publisher which was 300MB. I made a few minor edits in Publisher and saved and I notice that it is 88MB! Is this usual? Thanks in advance! Sarah.
  11. I'm running the most recent version of Affinity Photo on Win 10. Batch processing is failing when trying to save as .afphoto extension files. I've tried to run smaller batches (12 or less), running batches without parallel processing, and the program crashes every time, seemingly after saving only one file of the batch. Any ideas? My system is a six core i7 with an NVMe solid state drive and 32 gigs of RAM. I'm not sure what this issue is. Any help would be appreciated. This is biting me because I'm trying to process a retirement ceremony I shot a couple of weeks ago, and I'm running up on my deadline.
  12. Does anyone know if you are able to batch edit a lot of photos. So I know about batch processing with macros but with that I can't individually tweak images (if for instance a few photos are underexposed). Is there a way to edit a whole bunch of photos in a quick manner and export as a batch?
  13. I would like to know whether or not an ability to batch process RAW images in the Develop Persona is in the pipeline? I am Chair of a local Amateur Camera Club and I know that a number of the members are reluctant to move to Affinity from Adobe because of Lightroom and the ability to batch process images. I have managed to score a couple of converts where individuals are not wedded to Adobe and that is because of price. I am sure more would convert if there was a batch processing option in Affinity Photo. Apologies if there already is one that I am unaware of.
  14. I sometimes have a group of photos to process. Each one doesn't necessarily take long, but the whole sequence of operations might. I may use other tools as well in the process, and eventually bundle the results off by email to an interested party. As an example, today I was asked to take close up photos of a table top. I took a bunch of photos - then I wanted to upload them all to AP. Then I wanted to select a few, and make some changes, such as blurring out the background, and finally I wanted to save them somewhere unique, and then send them off. I don't know how big a problem this is with other photo editing tools - it may actually not be any easier - but as I have already written, each small step adds up and in the end the process becomes tedious. A more streamlined process would help.
  15. Affinity Photo (Version 1.5.2) - April 27, 2017 Hello, We would like to build a Macro that includes different layers to build some sort of 3D image impressions including a separate background. Below you'll find the exact steps we've taken so far: A. MACRO PROCESSING 1) Drag and drop a .jpg image into Affinity Photo 2) Activate Macro 3) Document --> Resize Document to 560px x 395px, Units: Pixels, DPI: 450, Resample: Bilinear, Resample activated/ticked --> Resize 4) Document --> Resize Canvas --> 640px x 640px, Units: Pixels, Anchor: Center --> Resize 5) Click on image with cursor/arrow --> Document --> Flatten 6) Transform --> S: -3 Degrees 7) C&P image, switch to last layer and Transform --> S: +3 Degrees 8) Move edited image (of last/lowest layer) accordingly and enter H-Value with a Delta of -20px 9) Effects --> Gradient Overlay 10) Layer --> New Layer --> Arrange --> Move to Back 11) Choose Flood Fill Tool --> Click into empty area --> Effects --> Gradient Overlay --> Type: Radial 12) Document --> Flatten 13) Stop Recording Macro 14) Add To Library --> Enter Macro name and hit OK --> Don't save the document B. BATCH PROCESSING 1) File --> New Batch Job process and choose "Save as JPEG" While the above steps (1 – 14) work perfectly fine when doing everything manually in Affinity Photo, it doesn't so when executed via Macro. To see the difference between Manual vs. Macro refer to the ZIP-Attachment below. C. QUESTION How can we build a Macro so that the final image looks EXACTLY like the one shown under manual conditions? Thanks, Pat Macro.zip
  16. First of all I think Affinity Photo for iPad is a great tool and one of a kind in the sense there's nothing that gets even close in App Store to the features you guys are providing. However I'm not entirely satisfied with the process how it works today. I understand this issue is partly because of Apple limitations on iPad platform but maybe there's something that could be improved on Affinity Photo side also and hence this feature request. As a photographer and traveler I want to travel light but still want to be able to process my RAW images and generate JPG export files easily. 1. I go on a site and take pictures with my DSLR and later import the photos to my iPad pro using Apple camera connection kit. (Ideally I would like to import directly to files or Affinity photo) 2. Once the photos are in iPad I would like to create a project with all of the imported RAW files without individually locating and adding them one by one. Could be something like import all photos from album "Last import" 3. I will do the edits to all the files I find are worth keeping and removing bad shots 4. I would like to batch export all RAW files to photos app (or files app) as JPG files
  17. When I create a macro of my own, and apply it to a camera raw file that I've opened and developed, it works fine. However, when I try to apply that macro, or any macro for that matter in a batch process, it over exposes the file to an unusable point. Even simply batch processing a raw file to a TIFF or any other kind of file, without a macro, over exposes the photo. It seems as though the photos need to be developed, then batch processed...? Is this true and how can I process my raw files like he does in the videos?
  18. Hello,I'm assuming Affinity Photo can remove unwanted objects from photos.My question is, can Affinity Photo automatically process a batch of photos (approx 800 images) and remove the same object from all 800 photos?Thanks.
  19. Hi guys, i have a little problem with Affinity: In my job i have to convert lots of pictures. I switched to Affinity since photoshop is way to expensive. Affinity is great but one thing realy nervs. Converting the DPI of pictures! - The function about the size-task (strg+alt+I) does not work. Ok, i already got this one. Change the size first. Finally, under "File / Data-file" you have to go to the "export-picture" mode, klick on "more" and deactivate the Meta-Data button and it will save your DPI-Setting. When will it work without this intermediate step? Please Affinity, solve this! Now my main question since i know how to do it with single pictures: - Is there any way to do batch processing with changing the DPI as well? - I tried to with generating my own macros. But when recording the macro and deactivating the Meta-Data (see above mentioned solution for single pictures) it says "cannot record". At last the converted pictures do not change dpi when i use batch prozessing. - I have hundreds of pictures with the same ground-settings (cmyk, 300dpi, size about 18x12cm and tiff). I can't do the batch processing at all, also not for the other settings, if i have to export the pictures again for my dpi setting. I hope anyone can help me with this matter. Also hope you understand everything since my english is not that good. Thanks in advance + Brg!
  20. Not sure if this has been addressed: It it would significantly improve the AP app experience if users could create tailored workflows easily and then batch process multiple shots using AP and Workflow, together with other suppported photo apps, to automate the current tedious one-photo-at-a-time procedure. I would be happy to help with the development of this feature, as it would greatly benefit many photogs I know who are interested in making the switch from traditional PC laptops to the iPad Pro.
  21. I would like to make a collections of brushes? I have quite a few in PSD. How can I make new ones in AP? How can I use my PSD brushes in AP?
  22. Hi guys, Please oh please improve the batch processing feature in Photo. It is actually dangerous. I have noticed the following that really does need to be addressed from a usability perspective. 1. There is no progress bar on the processing that is happening 2. There is no completion message to say its complete 3. There is no option or warning that it will overwrite your files (in my case it did without warning) 4. There is hardly any options other than a resize, please include at least the following. a) Convert into b) Resize to percentage c) Rename On that note I also noticed that the compression level is not that good at all, when compare to something like the output batch processing with 75 quality and very similar options on processing, Adobe Fireworks did a much better compression job by almost 20-30% and in some cases doubt the reduction without noticeable loss in quality. I really hope that this gets looked at soon. Regards, Mitch
  23. Check out the sneak peek of the HDR and 360 image editing features coming to Affinity Photo 1.5! Version 1.5 features announced today include: • Advanced HDR merge producing full 32-bit linear colour space images • An entirely new workspace for tone mapping • Focus stacking to bring depth to multiple combined images • Batch processing for smoother, faster workflow • Macros to record and replay a set of commands • An all-new way to edit 360 degree images Some much anticipated features to look forward too here, coming soon to Affinity Photo... :)
  24. Test: you only need a RAW image. Batch processing vs. Export with same settings. Batch processing has become much dark.
