  1. Hi all I've found that when focus merging in Photo, if I focus merge raw files (CR2 from a 80D in this case) the merged result is substantially darker than if I do the merge from the JPG files I captured at the same time as the RAWs. I can also use the batch function to make JPGs out of the RAW files and use them for a merge and it's exactly the same, the RAW one is several stops darker than the JPGs I got from those raw files. It doesn't give me any develop options so I'm stuck using JPGs. This has happened in every version of AP I've tried, including 1.9. Any id
  2. Would be nice if keyboard operation(or mouse wheel) is available so no need to click each time that's little pain when retouching the image.
  3. Now that Affinity Photo is using the GPU in 1.9, I'm getting errors which are probably due to this change. The first time I was trying to stack images, I was running another program, DxO's PhotoLab 4. which also uses the GPU. I had various results: a hang (had to reboot), a hang (was able to kill the program), a black screen that reset and sometimes odd results. And sometimes it works. I just tried the same focus stack three times, once with PhotoLab 4 open but inactive and one without but with Affinity Publisher open, and one with neither program. Twice I got incorrect results. The
  4. When I stack raw files, the right hand side of the final stack is stretched and distorted. The left hand side and central area is ok. This has happened with every stacked raw file, but doesnt happen with jpegs. I have tried stacking the same images in two other packages with no problems. When I save the image and then re-open it there is no problem. I had rejected several perfectly good images before realising it. This is an intermittent fault.
  5. Hello Forum, I am posting this because I searched on "Microscopy" "Entomology" and "Focus Stacking" and saw few if any results, I may be in a minority?...... Having spent many years perfecting Microscopy with Entomology and recently converting from a well know rival, I was impressed with the power of Focus stacking within Photo. These two images were taken with modest equipment and a Canon 50d digital SLR dating from 2008 and a Brunel MX1 Stereo Microscope with 1x Objective, 10x Oculars, Giving resolution power of 10x, plus magnification of the camera. Whilst I have DSLR's wit
  6. HDR merge starts to work, the alignment works but at some point during HDR merge or tonemapping, Affinity Photo shuts down. I am using version 1.8.5 and this is the first time I have used the new version for HDR. I had managed to do one focus merge successfully, but attempting a second one has caused Affinity Photo to fall over.
  7. I'm progressing slowly through the workbook and have got as far as the 'mother of millions' project, 'removing Halos' on page 255. Now I'm not familiar with this sort of stuff, I don't know what a halo is or what it should look like, and even with my best specs on, can't see any difference between the images on p255 and 256, which i presume are meant to be before and after pictures. Can anybody give me some pointers at to what I'm meant to be seeing here, please ?
  8. It would be very useful to be able to save also the different sources used in the Focus Merge function, to be able to make the often necessary corrections (halos, alignment errors, ..) in multiple work sessions because it may not be possible to complete the work at the same time.
  9. I've been going through the affinity photo workbook practicing with focus merging but I've been having a problem. Whenever I close affinity photo and go back to work on the photo, all of the images in the sources panel are gone leaving me unable to continue with the project. I made sure I was using the clone brush tool and had a layer selected. Also I looked for a setting about saving those images with the document somehow, similar to the save history with document option, but didn't find anything like that either. Searching through the forums I found 2 other posts with the same issue but they
  10. Hi affinity photo often crashes on iPad with random tasks, one that ha-pens every time is when I choose multiple raw images from iPhoto’s and try to focus stack them. How it goes is 1. Open affinity photo 2. Click new document with focus stack 3. Select raw images to stack from photos 4. Apply.......shows processing .....then.....crash... no matter how many times u try and no matter how many files u choose even if it’s just 3 files it won’t work. it’s really sad that this happens... also u need to make some way for being able to manually adjust focus stack a
  11. Is a Source Panel for Focus Merge on iPad on the developer radar? it would be nice to have this ability just as it is on Photo for MacOS?
  12. Hi! Problem that Affinity not use all images loaded in Focus Merge. I load 50 images to Focus merge but after processed the outcome has less than the loaded amount wich has a Deep impact in the end result. Seen this issue in a another topic from 2019 but no answer or solution presented in that topic. What is the problem?
  13. I have just purchased Affinity Photo. Results of merging photos, leaves some small black dots and lines on the final images. What could be causing this and how do I rectify the problem? I have attached an example as a picture speaks a thousand words. I am using an old Windows 7 laptop while away form home base. Could this be an OS problem? Thanks. VTJohn
  14. I’m attempting to focus merge on my iPad using affinity photo and the results leave allot to be desired. There is zero ability to modify before or after the photo is generated. There is no sources window!? Unless your program is flawless at outputting an amazing end result (it’s not, ive tried many) then we would need to be able to separately select and modify the photos through the source window, of which there isn’t one. In every image there’s a very clear halo that leaves the images sub par and not useable. so I guess my real question is is there a work around I’m not thinking of or unde
  15. Hi, I'm a new user both to Affinity Photo and SLR cameras. I am trying to merge 2 images (attached to this message) with "focus merge" (following proper steps) When I try to merge the foreground and a background, the foreground never comes into focus after the merge. I have tried adding several foreground images to one background and then the background is not in focus. I have added several of the foreground and several of the background with no luck in a "focus merge". If anyone is so kind enough to download the images and try it, I'm wondering if the foreground image just might not hav
  16. Not too long ago, in a land not very far away, I came across the concept of focus merges to dramatically increase depth-of-field of photos, especially macro ones. This was one of the reasons I bought Affinity Photo, as having learned the technique I had a requirement for affordable software the could do a good job of a focus merge. The focus merges I have done thus far have typically been hand-held and of fairly large 'macro' subjects such as mushrooms and flowers. Generally, these consist of 10-30 shots that Affinity Photo churns through and merges in very short order. Due to the hand-holding
  17. I would like to have the ability to drag multiple images onto the Focus Merge window, rather than use the Add button to select the images from a folder. Background: I use an Olympus OM-D camera with built-in focus bracketing to focus stack my jewelry photos. This works very well with the Affinity Photo Focus Merge feature. However, you have to "Add" the bracketed images to the Focus Merge window, which means browsing to the sub-folder that contains the images and selecting the one's you want to add for merging. When I import my camera images to the PC, the Olympus "Viewer" automat
  18. Independent of "Toggle Source Preview" being ON or OFF, an not wanted/needed Source Layer can not be deleted. The complete Focus Merge process must be done again . May be I am interpreting the trash bin in a wrong way, but what else should it be for...? I also tried to drag and drop the unwanted Focus Merge layer (the blue, selected one) into the trash bin, but this didn't help either... Greetings, Roland
  19. I can see that Focus Merge should work in AP - I've seen the Tutorial. I have a Panasonic TZ 100 which can do Focus Merge in the camera - but I'd prefer to do it in software if possible. AP should do this. The only slight issue I've noticed is that the camera generates MP4 files with a number of frames, so it's not quite in the form required for AP. It's not necessarily a big problem, though it could be a time consuming irritation. I can use either iTunes or FCPX (Final Cut Pro X) to pull out the frames and create individual shots to merge, but it would be a lot quicker if there's a

  21. Hello & HNY! I have been experimenting with the HDR merge and Focus merge modules and I'm experiencing a problem that Affinity Photo does not align the pictures correct. I can't find a way to align the pictures manually. Maybe I've not found the feature or this is currently not possible. Thanks, Rolf
  22. I really like the focus merge functionality of Affinity Photo but it lacks one essential feature: Saving the current state in order continue later. Currently the sources window that lets you manually blend the different sources (and thus correct ghosts introduced during the focus merging process) disappears if the program is closed. I know I can re-add the sources after loading the file but this is not nearly as intuitive and exact as the dedicated "focus merge mode". To me that's a major drawback as focus merging can be very time consuming work which takes hours. What if I need to take a brea
  23. Thank you for the 1.6 update. However, I am disappointed that basic drag and drop functionality is not available in the panorama, hdr merge, focus merge, stacking and other file selection dialogs. I usually have a finder window open and I can see the files I want to include in a stack or batch, but then I have to use the add files button and navigate (again) to that folder and select the files. Would love to just drag them from Finder onto the selection dialog list control. This should be a pretty basic code change. After all, drag and drop is coding 101 stuff and shouldn't cause knock on
  24. Hello, I imported series of photos from the cloud to the ipad for focus merge. I have done it in the affinity desktop and thought I'll give the iPad affinity photo a try. What puzzled me is the 'sources' (which you can examine the list of photos that made up the focus merged image by turning on and off the toggle source preview) is no where to be found. The sources is only available when you select the clone brush tool on the desktop version of the software. What I really like to know is where can I find the sources in the Affinity photo IOS version. Thanks. Kelvin
