  1. Dear Affinity-Team What is your take on the Affinity Suite and Plugins in the future? I am not talking about the possibility to add them to Photo. I am talking about all of your 3 power apps to have them included in their genetics. I talk to founders, SaaS, and app developers, and I keep hearing the same response repeatedly. An example by https://quaaant.com The same goes for other tools like f.e. I had a conversation with the CEO of Brandy and his response was very similar to the founder of Quaaant. I remember, the beginning of the success of InDesign was its structure as an innovative software, despite Freehand and Quark could handle so called "Xtras" but haven't been built based on plugins and Adobe utilized this feature perfectly. I am aware of the problems of stability and vulnerability of a software by opening to add-ons. Nevertheless, the market shows, how popular those plugins can make a software, when one can add external features just-like-that and the software company can focus on developing the core and more important features, see Sketch or Figma and their development.
  2. Hello, I have tried numerous times to open a photo in Apple Photos, and then send it to Affinity Photo for editing. I can send it via contextual menu or by opening Edit in Photos and then using the " ... " for extension activation. After editing in Affinity Photo I close the editing photo and attempt to Save Changes in the Apple Photos edit extension window. The edits do not save and I get an error message. I remember this use to work. Am I doing something wrong now? I am attaching a low bit-rate video (lens correction, straightening, and cropping) showing the process and result. Hope to hear back with a fix. Photos Extension Affinity Photo fail.mp4
  3. Good morning, after I did some tests with Affinity Photo on my iMac I decided to wait for the new iPad Version. Bought now Affinity Photo for iPad and a new 12,9" iPad Pro :-) However, I´m missing the Support to edit Photos from within the Apple Photos App using the Extension function. Also when using Affinity Photos and opening photos from Apples Photos (iCloud) from the App there is only a very small PopUp to open a photo. Hopefully there will be a better / bigger overview in the future. I´m handling all my photos with Apples Photo App (>40k photos) and it will be tricky to find a photo Please integreate the function to "overwrite" an already existing photo with the edited one keeping the possibility to reset changes later on. This was one of the most interesting functions for me using Affinity Photo on my iMac as I don´t need to Keep duplicates (edited and non edited Versions) Hope I could make clear what I´m missing and looking forward for your comments and hopefully improvements with the next update. Thx., Michael
  4. There is no "Affinity Photo extension" in "Photos". I bought it for iPad yesterday and I am so disappointed not to see it in Photos. Is it expected to implement this extension as it existe in the Mac desktop version of Affinity ? In the present state I will never use this software. Affinity needs to have the same tools on mobile and desktop application. I plan to buy the Mac desktop version when this specific point, often asked by users, will be improved.
  5. Affinity 1.7.2 Mac OS 10.14.6 MacBook Air 2018. I really like to use the affinity extension within Photos as it provide useful tools and a very simple workflow. However every time I use the Affinity develop extension it crash when closing. This happens every time I try and always with the same error message "Unable to edit with Affinity Develop, unexpected error occurred". What can I do to get this resolved? MatsF
  6. Please, what is going wrong that I can't use anymore the extension in Photos IMac Catalina? After Catalina was installed Photos doesn't accept the edit made by Affinity extension. We need an update from Affinity to be in accordance with Catalina!!!
  7. I have opened windows of photos in Affinity Photo that I want to combine in an HDR image. How can I add these open windows directly to a new HDR merge? When I select a few photos in the desktop Mac Photos with the Affinity Photo plugin extension, Affinity Photos opens with windows for the selected photos open. However, when I select new HDR merge, I can't find the photos already open in Affinity Photo to add to the HDR merge and I can't enter the Mac Photos Library through the HDR merge window's "add" button. My tedious work around has been to export the selected photos from Mac Photos to a separate folder and then add the exported files to a new HDR merge, then after creating a new HDR image in Affinity Photos, import it back into Mac Photos. The whole process uses my time and storage very inefficiently and defeats the whole purpose of the Affinity plugin for Mac Photos, so there must be a better way that I haven't been able to discover. I look forward to your guidance in using the Photos plugin to efficiently create HDR images.
  8. I know there's ways to transfer plugins to Affinity. However, is there a way to do that with Extensions? (I have an example included) I really want my Magic Picker extension to be included .. if that's possible.
  9. Hi all, Is it possible to rotate a photo using the Develop extension in Apple’s Photos.app? I imported a number of RAW+JPEGs from my Fuji X-T20 to Photos.app, which imported the orientation correctly. But when I go to the Develop extension they revert to sensor orientation, and I can’t find a way to rotate them in the Develop extension. It’s kind of distracting to adjust highlights and shadows on a 90º-rotated subject.
  10. I have enabled Affinity Photo Editing as an extension in Mac Photos. When I select an image in Photos to edit and then select Affinity Photo Editor in extensions, I am told that Affinity will not open. I am using the 10 day trial if that makes a difference. What am I doing wrong
  11. when I choose to export TIFF e.g. it does not make a whole lot of sense to offer PNG etc. options and presets? cheers
  12. I keep getting this error when I save a file from within affinity that was opened in Apple Photos. When this comes up it deletes all the work I did in my edit! Why does this happen? It is a very frequent error. It says it failed to save since it was already open in another app but opening the photo in Apple Photos is the only way to get to the editing extension. I am very confused as to why this keeps happening.
  13. I'm not sure if there is anybody who asked this before, but i just wanna know why we can't save as or export to .ai or .cdr or maybe other extension instead of affinity file? Is it because of something like copyright (?) limitation or will it be a new feature in the future? Thanks
  14. Hello, By executing the following steps: Import an Adobe RGB jpeg picture in Apple Photos, Edit the photo through the Affinity Photo extension "Edit in Affinity Photo" AP does not identify the color profile and it assigns the default one. If I simply open the picture with AP, the color profile it's managed correctly. Does Apple Photos purge the color profile data? Is there any other way to edit the file directly without using the "External Editors" extension? Thank you
  15. I wish Affinity would acquire the newly abandoned Nik Viveza from Google. This would be a great addition to Affinity Photo, and a fantastic Photos extension. This is the number one feature I miss since moving to Affinity. Here is a link describing and showing Viveza: https://www.google.c...roducts/viveza/ YouTube links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PLp5lYDsQi4gkL89jbJYu8rvCK0fDwHABP&v=tuCi1k7S0Ig https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMYTYMLoeNA&index=5&list=PLp5lYDsQi4gkL89jbJYu8rvCK0fDwHABP&nohtml5=False Here is the Google announcement of redirecting focus to smartphones.
  16. How can I change the far to big liquify tool in the "Photos Extension" of Affinity Photo? Appreciate any reply! :)
  17. I have Affinity Photo 1.4.1 and have problem to use extensions in Apple Photos. Affinity Photos works fine as a standalone applications. I can open the extension. But when I am trying to do something, I can just click on one control and then I am stuck whit that control and its first results. I can’t use another control and I can’t change the result. And then to leave the extension, I have to change to Finder or another program and then back to Photos before I can leave the extension. I have an iMac with the Intel Core i7, El Capitan 10.11.3 and Photos 1.3.
  18. I downloaded the latest Affinity Photo betas and I notice new extensions!!!! This is awesome!!! Can I make some requests? 1) Can we have a scroll bar on the Develop extension so I can see all the adjustments? I cannot set most of the noise adjustment when the window is too small. 2) Can we also add brush/gradiant overlay for local adjustments for Develop extension? 3)Also can we also add a level and curves adjustment to the Develop extension? Thank you very much!!!! This stuff is getting more awesome with each update!!!
  19. Affinity Extensions are now available in the Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo (1.4). For more information please read the Extensions for Apple Photos + Video Tutorial thread. Please note: If you have any questions regarding Affinity Retouching, please post them in the Questions section :) How do I find the Affinity Retouching Photos extension: The Photos extension aka Affinity Retouching is currently only available in the latest Customer Beta build of Affinity Photo. The Customer Beta builds can only be used by users who have the paid Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo installed. You will also need the latest version of OS X, El Capitan. Download and install the latest Affinity Photo Customer Beta build from here. Once installed, go to System Preferences... from the Apple Menu Click Extensions > Photos Select Affinity Retouching When you next edit an image in Photos you will have access to the Affinity Retouching extension. I've followed the above steps but Affinity Retouching is not showing in extensions. Now what? Try launching the Affinity Photo Beta version first before following the above steps. Is Affinity Retouching available in the Affinity Photo Trial? Not at the moment. If this changes, I will update this post. When will Affinity Retouching be available in the Mac App Store version of Affinity Photo? Affinity Retouching will be integrated into the MAS version of Affinity Photo in a future Mac App Store update. When I have more information, I will update this post. Hope this helps! Leigh
  20. Stupid question but (!) I can't get the blur tool to work when using it via the Photo App extension. I am fairly new to Affinity Photo generally so apologies in advance if I'm missing something very obvious. Thanks
  21. HI! I just downloaded the trial version, and really want to test out the program without having to save, export, open each file... so I was hoping that this would come up in the list of extensions in the edit panel of Photos. However, it does not. Can you please help me figure out how to be able to use Affinity right from Photos? Thank you, Colette
