I work at a printing company and we're looking into acquiring Affinity Photo to replace our aging PhotoShop CS2 that we use to process artwork from customers and convert it into a format that can be imported by our main design program used for production (Mecca2000 http://www.amgraf.com/pages/m2k1.html). Mecca treats bitmap tiffs differently than grayscale tiffs and displays them on screen with the white portion of the image being transparent which makes them easier to work with when things overlap and they take up much less file space, but if they're grayscale (which seems to be t
Summary: The image is 4988 x 2814px, 14.04 MB, 7 layers: 1 background pixel layer, 5 masked curve adjustment layers, 1 B&W layer in RGBA/32 (HDR), ProPhoto RGB (Linear). Using Document, Color Format to convert this image in 32-bits to 16-bits RGBA/16 - ProPhotoRGB takes over 8 minutes of processing time on a relatively well-spec'ed machine. Adobe Photoshop CS6 using the same image in 32-bits, similar number of layers and same color space to 16-bits in same color space takes about 5 seconds. Affinity Photo takes an inordinately long time that is not acceptable for the workflow. Details
The export options for TIFF files always remember the last setting, rather than defaulting to the document color mode. I.e. if the last export was CMYK, the default the next time will be CMYK, even if the document is RGB, and the other way round. This is dangerous since it makes it easy to perform unintended color space conversions on export. Especially beginners who may not know about RGB and CMYK or just trust the default export settings might be in for a nasty surprise. Ideally, the export settings would check if the color format in the export settings is set to the same thing as th
