  1. I'm using macros and a batch job to add branding to large sets of photos varying size and aspect ratio. It should be pretty straightforward - I'm just placing two external files into the image, and aligning one the the bottom left corner and one to the bottom right, then letting the batch save out jpegs as new copies. There's no resizing of either the placed files or the final copy going on. Problem is, while it works perfectly on the images that are the same aspect ratio as the image that I created that macro on, the placed branding files are being distorted on any images that are a different aspect ratio (in this case, portrait or panoramic). If I repeat the exact same steps manually in the portrait image, it places the branding files in their correct size and aspect. The macro should surely just do exactly the same job automatically, but it appears that it is somehow interpreting the aspect of the files it places in, based on the relative aspects of the file the macro was recorded in and the file it is being performed on. The error is occurring in the macro, rather than the batch process. It still happens when I run the macro manually on a single image, without it be part of a batch. Am I missing something, or is this a bug? It's annoying, because this is the feature that I need working to finally ditch my PS sub! I am including some sample images showing the results of the macro on different sized images, and there's a video showing the process of recording and applying the macro here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kkgr3dt7at1rk5e/macro.mp4?dl=0
  2. Is there a way to batch convert from .afphoto format to jpeg or others. I have done a lot of editing work and all of my photos saved as .afphoto and now I would like to convert without doing one at a time.,
  3. I have 97 JPEG source files. I ran batch jobs to apply crops to these and save the outputs as JPEG to another folder. For three runs of this, I had the following results: All 97 files processed okay 1 file was skipped 3 files were skipped By skipped, I mean that the affected file simply did not appear in the output folder. The files skipped appeared random. They were not at the beginning or at the end of the list. There were no error messages. I manually redid the skipped files without problems. The input files all had identical dimensions of 600 x 1800 pixels. The batch macros consisted of one crop only -- no other changes. MacOS 10.13.6; iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011) 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5; 12 GB RAM; Affinity Photo 1.6.7 I would be willing to provide info or test cases to reproduce this.
  4. Good Morning All! I am currently attempting to find a replacement for Adobe Fireworks as the business I'm employed by would like to move away from the costs involved with Adobe. We have narrowed it down to Affinity Photo as a necessity to have for the batch function but also a luxury to have the Photoshop capabilities to use on the rare occasion. We had some custom scripts written which we imported into Fireworks. I cannot get the same end result with solely the batch process function within Affinity. Below is the script contents that were written for us for Fireworks. Is it possible to automate this inside Affinity? Essentially we want the option point the batch tool to the files to resize multiple photo file formats into 1000 x 1000 72dpi. For example, If the image is 1000 x 500 before batching, we want the batch program to fill out to 1000 x 1000 with the colour white. We no longer require "makeResize" and only "makeLarge" within the script. var theDoc = fw.getDocumentDOM().filePathForRevert; var origFile = Files.getDirectory(theDoc) + '/' + Files.getFilename(theDoc) var newFile = 'file:///C|/batched/'+Files.getFilename(theDoc, true) makeLarge() makeResize(227, 227, '_m') makeResize(75, 75, '_s') makeResize(40, 40, '_t') Files.deleteFileIfExisting(origFile) function makeLarge() { var oldHeight = fw.getDocumentDOM().height; var oldWidth = fw.getDocumentDOM().width; if (oldHeight > oldWidth) { newWidth = 1000 var temp = oldHeight/newWidth newHeight = oldHeight/temp newWidth = oldWidth/temp } else { newHeight = 1000 var temp = oldWidth/newHeight newWidth = oldWidth/temp newHeight = oldHeight/temp } fw.getDocumentDOM().setDocumentImageSize({left:0, top:0, right:newWidth, bottom:newHeight}, {pixelsPerUnit:72, units:"inch"}, true); fw.getDocumentDOM().setDocumentCanvasSize({left:0, top:0, right:1000, bottom:1000}, true); fw.getDocumentDOM().setDocumentCanvasColor("#ffffff", true); fw.getDocumentDOM().selectAll(); fw.getDocumentDOM().align('center vertical', 'true') fw.getDocumentDOM().align('center horizontal', 'true') var theDoc = fw.getDocumentDOM().filePathForRevert; var theFolder = Files.getDirectory(theDoc) var theFilename = Files.getFilename(theDoc, true) var fullPath = theFolder + '/' + theFilename var theExtension = Files.getExtension(theDoc) fw.exportDocumentAs(null, newFile+'_l', ({applyScale:false, colorMode:"24 bit",exportFormat:"JPEG",jpegQuality:80,jpegSmoothness:0,jpegSubsampling:0,name:"JPEG - Better Quality",numEntiresRequested:0,percentScale:"100",useScale:true,xSize:0,ySize:0})) } function makeResize(height, width, ext) { fw.getDocumentDOM().setDocumentImageSize({left:0, top:0, right:height, bottom:width}, {pixelsPerUnit:72, units:"inch"}, true); fw.getDocumentDOM().setDocumentCanvasSize({left:0, top:0, right:height, bottom:width}, true); fw.getDocumentDOM().setDocumentCanvasColor("#ffffff", true); fw.getDocumentDOM().selectAll(); fw.getDocumentDOM().align('center vertical', 'true') fw.getDocumentDOM().align('center horizontal', 'true') var theDoc = fw.getDocumentDOM().filePathForRevert; var theFolder = Files.getDirectory(theDoc) var theFilename = Files.getFilename(theDoc, true) var fullPath = theFolder + '/' + theFilename var theExtension = Files.getExtension(theDoc) fw.exportDocumentAs(null, newFile+ext, ({applyScale:false, colorMode:"24 bit",exportFormat:"JPEG",jpegQuality:80,jpegSmoothness:0,jpegSubsampling:0,name:"JPEG - Better Quality",numEntiresRequested:0,percentScale:"100",useScale:true,xSize:0,ySize:0})) } Convert for Web.jsf
  5. In short, Affinity Photo develops my RGB monochromatic images as RED when using the Auto-Colors tool, which breaks my processing macro for handling images SOOC. I've attached a sample example JPG from my Fuji X-S1, and the file as batched with equivalent (with exception of Auto-color which does not exist in PhotoPlus x8) SOOC workflows. I don't know an answer on how to address the case of what should be monochromatic images having (stupidly?) auto-color run against them, but I feel like this should be more robust. The alternative is I have to make another batch processing macro and run that only against monochromatic images, which sort of defeats the purpose of batching to begin with if I have to sift through files and take them out one by one.

  6. When doing batch resizing the method seems to be nearest neighbour regardless of the method chosen. I tried to get round this using a macro, but it would also seem resizing with a macro uses nearest neighbour regardless of method selected also. Chris
  7. I've recently started using the batch feature to speed up my workflow. I had a few recordings saved in the library but the other day I went to use one and poof...they were gone. I couldn't even see the default presets. Thinking that maybe it was a glitch I tried replicating one I'd made (I needed to edit a group of photos). Once I'd completed it I tried to save it to my library....nothing. No popup window no nothing, like the link had been cut. I tried resetting the program but it didn't resolve the issue. I dont know if I deleted the batch folder or something by accident, but regardless it's not working and I need this feature for my business. Can someone please help me??????
  8. As the files in AD are increasing, there is no way to export and delete them in batches. Did I miss something?
  9. I have a similar question in AP, my workflow likes these.. 1- open (or new from clipboard) 2- changes to CMYK mode 3- resizes the image to 300dpi I record the above steps as a Macro to apply on the other images as step 1, but the results are distorted, may be all follow the original width & height within the marco any way to make a "flexible" macro to acquire the result? thanks (split by mod)
  10. On a couple of occasions I did a batch job on my RAW files to jpg and tiff. Lately every single batch job is overexposed. I'm trying to do a milky way time-lapse and star trails and every image is blown out. Not only that, when I compare the before and after batch image, I notice that there is a warping of the image, too. I did not change any other settings when processing my Nikon RAW images. Attached are sample images of the before and after. Also, I'm attaching a screen shot of the settings I've used for each batch job. Thanks! John
  11. On the "New batch job" windows, Add button, the "Open" window has a selector named "Affinity Files" that select several file types besides affinity files (JPEG, PNG, PDF, etc) Would be nice to have an entry that select only *.afdesign and *.afphoto file types and, please, change the name of former "Affinity Files" to "Image files" or whatever and name this option as "Affinity files".
  12. Hi guys, I have taken a number of time-lapse images in Sony Raw and want to develop them. I can't see a way to do this in a batch. Is this correct? Leigh
  13. Hello Affinity Support and Forum, I have noticed an error with Batch processing .arw files from a Sony A7RII. When running a batch process of any size, my amount was 100 in this case, the batch converter under exposes the developed raw file. It also adds quite a bit of noise and RGB pixelation. You can see by viewing the attached images at full size blown up 330%. The lighter image is the singular developed photo without edits, and the darker one is the batch, again with no edits. This process is breaking my workflow as batch processing raw images into Affinity is par for the course. I had read elsewhere that this is know and will be patched, but that was last year in October...
  14. Hello, First I want to thank you guys for the great tool Affinity Photo you have created for us to use. It takes some time to addapt to it, but it certainly works really good. I have an issue I want to tell you about. I am taking the product photos for an online shop and it's a big collection. I have developed some Macros, and lately I have been suffering from LOW DISK SPACE. Well, I started looking for the reason and I saw that the reason was 'My pictures' folder. I told you it's a big collection and I have thousands of photos. The Macro I apply is very simple: Exposition correction Curves editing Streightening + Square Crop Adding 3 guidelines and that is all. Should be simple. Of course, I need to keep the working file until the Season is over, just in case. But the thing is, these simple steps are converting my 5MB pictures into 50MB .afphoto files and it's eating up my Storage Space. Thank you for your work and I hope you will be able to solve this in following updates. Best, Anelia
  15. Hi there, I would like to partition a lot of picture into nine subpictures each. In other words: I would like to digitally cut every picture into nine pieces. And at first, using the slicers available in export persona seemed to be the perfect solution. Since the partition always stays the same, this sounded like a job for batch mode. I just have one problem: When recording a macro, I cannot define a slicer. So right now it would seem that I cannot use this awesome feature in batch mode. Does anyone know any way around this? Thank you very much and kind regards, Dreamer
  16. It should be possible to apply the same settings of the develop persona when importing a set of RAW images. Saving the settings, loading the photos one-by-one and loading the settings every time is too time consuming. In Photoshop Elements this is no problem! Please refer to this thread:
  17. Hi I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to batch watermark photos with different dimensions. I want my watermark in the right-hand corner on the bottom of every photo. I've tried looking and can't find what I'm looking for.
  18. This bug has been posted before on both mac and windows. Most postings hsve been from users starting from raw files. I have recently processed a batch of .awr (Sony raw) files and using a macro to resize them. All came out too dark. I then simplified things and processed a batch of .jpg files, simply saving/exporting them (via batch) into a subfolder. All came out too dark. This suggests that the problem is inherent in the batch processing rather than raw processing. It would seem that other users use batch processing with no problems. The video explaining bach jobs for example. There seems to have been little response from the Affinity developers. What is going on? John
  19. So I am trying to edit a star lapse I took by recording my macro then re applying it to a batch. However the results are way different when I do this. How come? I know the Macro is good because when I run it on just a single image it looks great. However when I run it as a part of a batch it doesnt even look the same. Whats the point of the batch processor if it doesn't work? I was really hoping to use affinity over Adobe products but its looking like for mass image editing nothing beats adobe. Might have to just suck up and pay to stupid monthly cloud subscription. ugh. Anyways the first image is my original macro ran on just a single image and then the image on the right is from the batch, and yes I used the same macro for both.

  20. I enjoy using Affinity Photo on a Mac (OS X 10.12.6). I frequently need to resize a folder of images and run a small macro to place my studio logo on these lower-resolution images for use by the client, post them to social media, etc. I downloaded the update for Affinity Photo v1.6.7, and it's great. But is there still no way to run a batch job on a folder containing both landscape and portrait orientation images and end up with all of them properly resized to the same pixel dimensions without distortion? I saw a discussion about a complex macro for this purpose in another thread. However, this essential function should be included as a basic part of Affinity Photo's capabilities, yes? Has anyone had success with this sort of operation? I really love Affinity Photo and tell all of my pro colleagues about it as a potential replacement for Photoshop, but this simple issue could hold many pros back. Thanks very much for any insight that you developers and experienced users might have.
  21. Hallo allerseits.. Habe gerade gesehen, dass es hier im Forum auch Deutsch sprechende/schreibende kompetente Leute gibt; so kann ich mir evtl die Mühe sparen mein 'Problemchen' in Englisch zu beschreiben. Für die webseite meines Turnvereines verwende ich Logos/Piktogramme im png-Format die frei verfügbar sind. Allerdings passt das angebotene Rot nicht so recht zu unserer Corporate Identity An einem habe ich es per Makro recht gut hingekriegt. (Rottöne ausgewählt - angepasst - deselektiert- neu abgespeichert - fein) Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die etwa 100 Icons in einem Rutsch -per Batch- umzufärben, ohne jede einzeln zu öffnen? Für Eure Hilfe schon jetzt vielen Dank Liebe Grüsse aus dem Rheingau adus
  22. Hello all, I have a lot of images to process and I would like to do if there is a way to open them, select specific layers and export them? Thank you!!!
  23. Currently running: Affinity Photo (Windows - Version 1.6.2) Issue: The "Auto Levels" adjustment when ran through the batch system (via a simple recorded macro, which is just "Auto Levels") doesn't produce the same results as an interactive "Auto Levels" adjustment. I'll try and upload an example later, has anyone else experienced the same issue or am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
  24. Affinity looks good and pretty intuitive to use. What I am missing is a batch processor. My primary photo targets are birds; things that move pretty fast at times. So I usually shoot photos in bursts - same light situation, same settings etc, up to 20 images. To allow me to select the one photo I like, I want to process all of them the same, so applying a macro/batch processing them. The outcome of the batch processing should deliver good results. This is the one feature photoshop has ahead of all other photo processing software - it does good batch processing. I have tested other software (Nikon firmware, Corel, Gimp etc.) and they have all delivered unsatisfactory results.
  25. Hello, I recently created a batch job using a macro. Unfortunately I forgot to uncheck the .afphoto file option after checking the .png file option. When I found out I wanted to stop the job but I did not find any way to do so. Since the job was to alter 34 images it took unnecessarily long to export to two file types. It would be very useful to be able to abort/stop a job. Please add that function. Greetings Matthias
