  1. Hello, in the new version, the focus stacking does not work properly, indeed it does not work at all! I load the photos as usual, the software performs its calculations, and then returns what you can see in the screenshot: I don't have the final photo, and even one of the source photos is not working. The problem always exists, initially I tried with 8 photos and the software didn't work, I was thinking about a hardware issue so I tried with only 3 photos, but the result doesn't change! Please resolve as soon as possible! Thank you!
  2. 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
  3. New to Affinity Photo and wanted to explore the capabilities and caliber of Affinity Photo in comparison to that of Photoshop. I really enjoyed processing these images in Affinity Photo, and impressed with its speed and abilities. Image one is a stack of 27 images and the second one is from ~80 images. Images were acquired with a Sony A6000 camera with a 55-210mm lens by using a Raynox macro adapter. Thank you for visiting. Have a nice day!
  4. 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
  5. This is the time of year that Amaryllis (aka Hippeastrum) bulbs burst into flower. This is the second flower from one bulb. The first has rather gone over and the third is not quite open. I photographed this full face using 13 images in a stack, focusing on the tip of the stigma and progressively down into the throat of the flower. I found that using the jpegs resulted in the white parts of the petals being rather blown out, so I used the original raw (awr) files. Using the merge, I cropped it, then duplicated it and made a selection of the flower itself and deleted it. I then inverted
  6. My first test on focus stack. The speed of processing was impressive since the working space was set to prophoto-16 bit. It took only a few minutes to complete 25 images alignment and stacking. To compare, one single frame and the final stacked image are enclosed. Only minimal editing (curves and USM) is done on the stack. The output is very good. Soon I will be testing with 70 to 160 images taken with microscope objectives. Camera- Nikon D3100, Lens Tamron 90mm Macro, f18, 1/3 sec, ISO 200. This is the final stack. The image below is one of the 25 frames.

  8. Hi, Please compare the first two attached items, which are the final outputs of a focus stack. 1+2+3+4: VS :A+B (i.e. [1+2] + [3+4]) Here's what's going on: 1+2+3+4.png is a focus stacked image from 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, & 4.jpg >> The result is blurry, so I tried dividing the task to help the alignment algorithm. A (1+2).png is a focus stack using only photo 1 & 2, while B (3+4).png is one using 3 & 4. >> These 2 intermediates, when combined will contain all 4 focus points (as would 1+2+3+4). A+B.png is a focus stack of A (1+2).png and B
  9. Since the Focus Merge process must determine the Z order of the photos and which pixel to use from which image, that means that it is implicitly reconstructing depth information for each pixel anyway. It would be nice to have access to this data, either for further editing (such as enhancing perceived depth by applying color correction), or even to use it, say, as a displacement map in 3D-capable software to generate a textured 3D model from the image. I'd suggest a simple "Generate Depth Map" check box in the Focus Merge dialog box that would then lead to Focus Merge outputting a gray
  10. Fokus Stacking does work in some cases, but here it fails dramatically: AP accepts just 2 frames out of 10 of the redcar-motive, while processing and result of the cars behind a hedge,11 frames, go really weird. Half of the sources are differently scaled like this, the result looks like this. A result in PS-CS6 leaves foggy areas but stays visually comparable.
  11. Congratulations on what will inevitably be a great product. I ran into a couple of problems today. 1) LR to Affinity Photo transfer via Edit In preference is not working. This was documented by another user so I won't beat a dead horse, but this is why I chose to attempt Focus Stacking external to LR (Item 2 below). 2) Ran Affinity Photo in stand-alone mode. Wanted to pull in 23 Canon CR2 photos taken at various focus points. Camera is a Canon 6d with a Canon 100 mm f2.8 macro lens attached, tripod mounted. Settings were ISO 50, f4.0, and shutter at 1/30 second. Attempted this usi
  12. I'm in the process of evaluating Affinity Designer as a tool for combining multiple versions of the same photograph into a single deep image. I've been using this technique for several years using a combination of several applications, and I'm hoping AD may make the step of "squishing" all of these photos together a bit easier. As I am brand new to AD, I'm running into a problem working with multiple layers that I'm currently attributing to the ignorance associated with pilot error. :-) I'm working with 20mp images and lay down the first 5,472 x 3,648 TIFF image in the background layer.
