  1. Affinity Photo 1.6.6 macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 After adding a bunch of images of the same photo session to a batch job in order to resize them, Affinity Photo corrupts/destroys some images by adding solid white almost throughout the whole image, while other images are OK. Attached is an archive containing the same 4 images - before and after a batch resize. The 2 get corrupted every time after a batch job, while the other 2 are OK. Affinity Batch Bug.zip
  2. Hi, I am processing the photos from our last trip, coming from lightroom i am wondering if it is possible to export multiple files at once? I googled around but didn't find any new relating topics. I cant imagine I have to export 100+ photos one by one? :) Just bought the program, looks very promising!
  3. Hi the team, This morning I have to use the batch processing, but it always crash Affinity Photo when I want to use it. I've uninstalled 3 times the app, but it have not solve the problem. I join you the crash report, I hope it will be usefull to help you to help me ( ^_^!) Thanks by advance batch crash report.txt
  4. Hi ! Recently I purchased Affinity Photo and it's my first post here I fall in love affinity Photo features, workflow and monthly fees free concept, but some bugs are really dissapointing. Considering to switch from adobe products to Affinity Photo, because it completely covers my needs. Really wish success to you, guys, and know how important feedbacks is, so there is one. Please forgive me, if I created theme in a wrong forum tree. I'm working in IT, my system is fast and clean, so please don't advise to turn off antivirus or smth. like that I already tried to tweak my machine perfomance, Affinity Photo perfomance and so on, but nothing helps. Have zero speed issues with Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop in described scenarios. They fast and furious My laptop specs: ASUS ZenBook UX330UA: Intel Core i5 6200U 2300 MHz / 13.3" / 3200x1800 / 8Gb RAM / 256Gb SSD / Intel HD Graphics 520 / Win 10 Pro Affinity Photo version: 1.5.2.69 Affinity Photo BETA version: 1.6.0.82 What I found during my work: 1) Tone Mapping persona is very slow. I'm processing 16MB 6114x4076 JPEG files and it takes about 1 minute to finish initial processing when swithcing to Tone Mapping Persona. Beta version, maybe, little bit faster. Not very noticable. 2) I created my own tone mapping preset and save it in my own folder in Tone Mapping Persona presets. After that, I created macros with one tone mapping action (which uses my preset) and save it in Affinity Photo library. Then, I created one batch job with 5 files and launched it - all my files were processed and placed into output folder correctly. Then, I closed Affinity Photo, relaunched it, and repeat my batch job in the same way. Photos were processed, BUT they were tone mapped by first default preset, not with my own. I tried to repeat and this hapened again. I recreated macros and found that it works fine. Closed Affinity Photo agian, relaunched it, and found that macros didn't work correctly again. Issue is reproduced not only with bacth mode. After relaunching Affinity Photo simple macros calling from library causes the same effect. 3) Tone Mapping macros batch processing is extremely SLOOOW!! IT takes about 3 minutes to process each photo by this way. More than, one photo processing time increasing with increasing of total photo number in batch. More photos, more time need for one photo processing. More than, Parallel processing increasing one photo processing time to about TEN minutes! Maybe, there is another way to tone mapping batch of photos, but I didn't find it. 4) I tried to do such macros batch job in Affinity Photo Beta. It cann't create tone mapping macros at all, failing with error. Macros Import from stable Affinity Photo version doesn't help. After such import Beta version cann't be launched, it fails during startup with error. 5) Time to time I'm catching another interesting bug: Studio refuses drag&drop photo import from folder. Studio reset helps. 6) Clarity in develop persona creates freaky white poster objects border effects on high meanings; 7) Develop Persona shadow recovery seems to be broken. It only adding grey tint to shadows, instead of pulling it. 8) Why after applying Develop Persona processing I can't return to it back again? History isn't saved. 9) 2 stops exposure Develop Persona tuning isn't enough. Need about 5 stops. 10) Develop Persona brushes and filters masks are dissapear after options tuning and cann't be called back again. Need to recreate filter/brush again. 11) Batch job editor doesn't remember previous settings
  5. Hallo everyone, I a not quite sure, theres a way to do this in affinity. I got a folder with several pdf´s, that where produced from autocad, and that have to be composed in affinity Photo to make a much more pleasent floor plan. The several pdf´s where Plotted from autocad, untill now get placed one after the other to the center of a Document, that refers in size to the pdf´s that of course have all the same size, and gets placed in the middle of the document using a dp1 of 300... due to the nature of the embedded pdf´ files i import, i do aply to each of them a layer effect "color overlay" (so the architects can care about the color much more precise inside of affinity photo) , and also due to the problems of the embedded vektors of the pdf´s, i aply the layer effect "outline", in the exakt same color of the color overlay i used before. This way the thin and uggly lines of the used colored triangles of the fillings dissapear for the embedded pdfs. now i do this one after the other with each of the pdf´s the architects wrote to one folder , untill every pdf is sitting on top of the other , using the layereffects and they are all centered to the middle of the document (which has the size of the first opend pdf and so gets the exact szise of the needed pdfs) .. This is the first step... 1. Question: Is there a way to record in a macro to open, place to the documents center , all needed pdf´s of one folder, and applay the layer efffects i have been talking about ? 2: Question: As usual the Architectural plans change very often in a competition untill you get your final result.. this takes much much time .... so.. is there a way, to produce a macro of all the now embedded pdfs, and tell affinity, to replace them by the pdf´s in a selected folder, and replace each pdf with the now actualised pdf´s, with their corresponding names ? and if there isn´t any, go on to the next embedded pdf, and look if there existes one with the corrresponding name, untill all layer with pdf´s are actualised with the new pdfs´s. and this by remaining all the layereffects, you put on your embedded pdf´s ? this would streamline the import and redoing process of my documents very very much and would spare dozenz of hours of work in an architectural workflow process.. here´s a screenshot of an example (not finished plan).. greetings Tom..
  6. Renaming of exported files during batch processing needed - with possibility to use meta data as name, ie. capture time as part of filename etc.
  7. On my last trip I shot a lot of HDR pictures. It's pretty tedious to merge each of them one after the other. Is there a way to do this automatically for a large number HDR merges?
  8. batch jobs can only save afphoto, jpg, png, tiff, exr normal File>export allows more options though e.g. pdf it just happened that I had to batch convert a bunch of svg which AP opened well but without a batch option it was not practical please make batch jobs more full featured cheers (and enable parallel export)
  9. Hello, I am using batch job to apply a basic grading to my Raw images and export them as Jpeg. This basically works quite good except for the fact that the grading looks quite different to what I get when I open the image manually, develop it and apply the macro then. But this is another topic. My bigger problem is, that portrait format images are always cropped to a landscape image. That means I get a landscape image where the upper part of my originally portrait image is cut off and in the right part of the image is just black (see attachment). Am I doing something wrong? I am using a Nikon D610 which is auto rotating the photos like almost every other digital camera. Thank you! Seeb
  10. I click on batch and the app crashes. The dialogue doesn't even open anymore. Log attached. AP crash log
  11. I primarily do astro timelapse photography. One of my issues is hot pixels (especially in the summer). I need a way, and I'm thinking batch, where I can record the removal of hot pixels to RAW images and then apply across the other hundreds of images. Is this possible? I'm not a Ps user and thought Affinity would be a more logical platform to try instead of Ps. Thanks
  12. hi, tried to make a batch conversion from .exr to png but when i try to add multiple files (more than 1) affinity 1.52.69 and newest beta 1.6.0.71 instantly crash it works when i add the files one by one - but thats kinda annoying... for 600 files... unhandled exeption on beta 0xE06D7363 also sent crash reports hope you can fix that soon though as i need it for job today i guess not that soon... thanks in advance
  13. I am facing a problem over batch on my MacBook Pro. The updated features are amazing , especially the macro and batch function, I use these two features a lot in my work. I record a Marco and save it into my category and then use batch job, it's great-I can give up Photoshop completely now. But there is a big problem, I don't know why the batch always processes my photos in landscape and portrait to the same shape, maybe the former or the latter. I just want to resize them but not to change the shape. Are you facing the same problem like me?
  14. My batch processed photos are always overexposed. Both the .afphoto file and the jpeg are extremely overexposed. I did the exact editing manually and the photos came out great. Not sure what I am doing wrong in the batch processing. Any suggestions?
  15. Hey Guys, I would love some advice about workflow RE doing a Batch process in Affinity and then being able to fine tune each photo afterwards - to individually tweak the settings applied in the batch process. Any ideas? Thanks!
  16. Hello everyone! I would like to know what AP is doing with RAW photos which are going through a batch job. There is a quite obvious difference between a RAW photo that is converted as a single photo through the develop persona and a RAW photo that is converted via a job batch. My workflow for single photos: Preferences: 32bit working space: sRGB (linear) Develop assistant: RAW engine: Apple RAW output: 32bit Tone curve: take no action Develop. Export as 16bit half float Open EXR with ZIP compression For the batch job: add the RAW photo Save as Open EXR 16bit half float ZIP compression. I would expect that the results are matching, but obviously they are not. Could anyone explain that to me? Thanks, Sönke
  17. Good afternoon. I bought Photo and the Neat Image plugin, yesterday. For the most part, they are both exactly what I wanted. :-) However, when I try to record a macro in Photo using a plugin step. i.e. with the Neat Image plugin, the macro appears to record properly and can be saved. However, it stops during play at the plugin step (actually, I used only that single step for the macro); The macro does not cause the plugin to run the steps I specified, nor does the macro return to Photo. It seems that either Photo does not record the plugin actions I selected into the macro, that the macro did not send the plugin actions back to the macro recorder, or that the running of the macro does not send the relevant commands to the plugin when the macro is played. So, when the macro is run, it stops in the plugin rather than executing the plugin’s actions I had assumed I’d recorded. This is a huge problem when one has many images for which a Photo user wants to use the plugin to perform, say, noise reduction, rather than Photo’s own NR. Could you tell me if this is a bug in Photo, a bug in Neat Image, or that, perhaps, I’ve missed something in the recording of the macro for my batch? Thanks. Trevor Jacques.
  18. I've tried to make a batch conversion to change the resolution to 72 dpi. After progress, the picture resolution is still the same. If I initial the macro manual the resolution will change as expected. What is going wrong. Please help.
  19. Been testing out AP for a couple of days now and there's a lot to love about it, especially for €40. Really like the way it processes RAW files, it's almost as good as Capture One and better than Photoshop. As a wedding photographer I can easily shoot thousands of images per day, which I narrow down to a couple of hundred. While I really like using AP, at the moment it's workflow is too slow - I know you have batch processing in the pipeline and that's eagerly awaited. What I'd ideally like is to be able to quickly see all files in a folder displayed on a scrollable dashboard, then by clicking on one to be able to see that larger and faff about with what adjustments I feel are necessary. Then to be able to click and copy ALL those adjustments, then click select similar images and apply those settings to those files. That would save me hours - which is where I'm losing time with AP at the moment. Obviously, I'd love to be able to batch output all these files together, rather than individually. It means i can work during the day making adjustments and output overnight or when I'm out on another shoot. Secondly, if i process a RAW file and save those adjustment settings- brightness/contrast/shadow/etc - as a preset why doesn't it also save adjustments to the colour temp? While I'm not sure of the advantage of saving separate presets for Basics, Lens, Details, Tones and Overlays over saving a preset with all those adjustments included - it means if i want to use the same settings of all those I have to create 5 presets and do 5 things where doing just one should be an option. It's not a big deal, but it would be nice to have as an option whether or not to collate multiple adjustment types as one preset. Lastly, for now anyway, once I process a RAW file I can export it as a TIFF. However, if I reopen that RAW file again it opens with its default camera settings and all my adjustments aren't to be found. I know Capture One and Photoshop open RAW files in the amended state with all the last adjustments displayed. Perhaps there's some way of view this, but I'm damned if i can find it. Aside from those quibbles I think you've done a massive job very well indeed. Mike.
  20. Have a scanning process or task to edit huge files that requires lots of memory but need to load the files and edit them with just 4-8GB? That can happen and when it does, you can get so frustrated about removing dust etc on the huge files. On Unix commandline I used a ImageMagic a lot for that task to automatically process a input file and slice it to smaller ones without really loading the whole file to VRAM etc. And then use the image editor to open the separated files that were sliced pieces and after each edit to combine the files back to one big one (a la panorama stiching). It made possible to load on a computer with 512MB RAM a files size of 400-500MB and do the spot healing for dust removing, build a script for the contrast etc editing and then apply all those separately to multiple 50MB files without stressing the hardware. This would help many photographers who use film and does huge file scanning or even panoramas with high megapixel cameras (80Mpix shooting a 5-20 frames for panorama) so you could just use computers with 3-8GB RAM with others software loaded too. And then just apply same curves etc to all files in batch, run the "new panorama" and then let the computer heat up!
  21. For me this is a "must be" feature for Affinity Photo. When I have for example 1000 raw's to develop one by one this app is unusable now I need to use another programs. I am sure that most of Affinity Photo users will want this feature badly.
  22. When I record a macro, and then apply it within a batch process, part of the macro is implemented differently to how it was recorded. The specific steps that go wrong are in relation to placing and positioning an image as part of the macro. Here's what I record doing: 1. Resize document to 500 x 500 2. Place image into document in topmost layer (being used as a watermark) 3. Resize placed image to 500 x 500 4. Align placed image to bottom right of document. Here's what the macro records: 1. Document properties 2. Add Image 3. Transform 4. Transform 5. Arrange Nodes Here's what the macro does when run within a batch process: 1. Scales the image 2. Adds the placed image over the top of the original 3. Saves new image according to batch parameters Here's what's wrong with the new image: 1. The placed image is not scaled to 500 x 500, but is much bigger and pixellated. Here's what I discovered on investigating this anomaly: 1. On reviewing the settings of the Transform steps in the Macro Panel, the settings of 500 x 500 are not recorded, only a scale factor of 100% x 100%. Even though the original placed file is already 500 x 500 for some reason the batch process ignores or misinterprets these steps and places the image at a much much larger scale. 2. When I run the macro within Affinity, and not part of a batch process, the placed image is scaled EVEN LARGER than when placed as part of the batch process, resulting in the 500 x 500 placed image being placed at 557256.3 x 557256.3. Clearly something is not right about how Affinity is interpreting Transform steps in macros. Does anyone have any solution?
  23. Hi dear community and support, I really like the HDR function of Affinity Photo for MAC. But now I need to convert about 40 HDR photos from 120 seperate photos. It would be very nice if there is a possibility to do this with batch processing... 1) take 3 following photos 2) HDR processing 3) image optimazing 4) save the HDR photo Could anybody tells me how to do this? Thanks so much. Greetings, Tobias
  24. Hello there, I've been using the Affinity products for a couple of days now and I'm really amazed by their capabilities. However, there seem to be a few disruptive bugs regarding the brush dynamics, both in Photo and Designer. (Note: I decided to name the bugs for future reference) "Prokaryote bug": When using the velocity control on a paint/pixel brush (Photo and Designer), there always appear big blobs at the beginning of each stroke followed by a much thinner tail, no matter how fast or slow I’m drawing. This bug has been reported here and there almost 2 (!) years ago and, yet, remains unfixed. Also, in the brush dynamics window (almost) every slider is called a “jitter”. The word “jitter” is a bit confusing as it implies that the brush is modified randomly over time while, at the same time, corresponding to how fast, or with how much pressure, etc. you draw. In other words, not completely (!) random. This doesn’t seem to be standard/what’s happening in affinity. In my understanding those “jitters” only adjust the (output) amplitude of the effect produced by the (input) controller and don’t yield actual jitter. If randomness is desired, the only option in Affinity would be to set the property to random and, thus, lose control. You cannot have both (control and randomness). Am I correct? And is this the intended behaviour? If so, the use of another word might be advised. "Diamond bug": When velocity is set for a vector brush or pencil, Designer creates jagged (diamond-shaped) brush strokes. If the stroke is rather straight and drawn with high velocity, the rough edges will stay. If the stroke is longer and curvier the jagged stroke tends to turn into a much smoother stroke as soon as the mouse button is released. Nonetheless, the stroke doesn’t seem to reflect the actual velocity changes applied and sometimes the jagged lines don’t disappear entirely. This behaviour has been demonstrated here as well. (Images 1 and 3 are before releasing the mouse button, 2 and 4 are after) "Umbrella bug": Additionally, the (vector) stroke often ends very abruptly in a big semicircle (umbrella), especially when drawing circles/spirals. All of the above-mentioned bugs appear not only in editing mode but also in the exported files: So, it’s not just a visual bug. They, unfortunately, render the velocity control pretty much useless. They also occur with clone brush, dodge & burn, sponge, erase tool and any other brush descendant. Other bugs: When the screen resolution is set to 1366 x 768 (typical laptop display resolution) or lower, the toolbar gets cut-off in Photo. I am aware of the option to undock the toolbar in the view menu but this is quite cumbersome when you start Photo for the very first time. CRITICAL: Batch processing of photos into the same directory and in the same file format as the original files (e.g. to create a lower quality copy) will result in overwritten (yes, deleted!) original photos without any prior warning. A message and an option to append some text to the exported file names would be strongly required. This, also, has been reported (here).I hope this was somewhat helpful and I'd love to see these issues resolved in the near future. Best wishes! ------------------------------------------- Affinity Designer Version: 1.5.1.43 Affinity Photo Version: 1.5.1.54 Operating System: Windows 10 Pointing device: Mouse
  25. The batch processor is a HUGE asset to Affinity Photo for my work. However, when selecting images to be converted to JPG, it skips a file or two. I have to check to see if all files were processed and run again on those. I don't have any idea what causes this. It is usable but with this caveat. Any ideas?
