  1. When exporting .hdr files and opening them in Preview, the image is black. When viewing the same file in Quick Look, the image is rendered properly. Also, on Preview, when panning and scaling the .hdr file, the images are momentarily rendered properly. Since the image is rendered properly in Quick Look, but not Preview, this is likely a bug. Edit: this only occurs with about half of the .hdr files. For comparison, the bug occurs with Hawaii2022_34, but not Hawaii2022_18. Both attached. MacOS Ventura 13.0.1.

  2. Starting from this video, I made two macro. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdxXq0aaaXQ In order to import them, open Affinity Photo, open Macro tab (enable it if nedeed), then click Import Macro icon (marked with 1 in below pic), after that, click on Add to Library icon (marked with 2), choose where you want to save it, change the name (if you want). Then test it, by applying it to a picture, open the procedural text, adjust the variables, opacity and blend mode. HDR-1.afmacro HDR-2.afmacro
  3. HI, I'm trying Affinity to see results on EXR and HDR 360 panos, I'm pretty happy with the results, but there is a problem, after applying Persona Tone mapping the resulting image is no longer a smooth 360, here you can see what I'm talking about, before and after. So, how can avoid or fix this, this is essential to decide whether to buy the software or not (I'm using trial) Thank's! I hope someone can provide any solution
  4. A picture in an abandoned residence I took and edited with Affinity Photo V2. Perhaps useful to people but the way I go about it is: 1) File > HDR Merge 2) Select your HDR stack/bracket 3) Deselect Tonemap (you can always do it later but imo its not a good starting point ) 4) Merge the HDR and Edit all you want.
  5. I suggest Affinity Photo to support exporting High Dynamic Range HEIF (HDR PQ 10-bit) from RAW/DNG/ProRAW file. It could really be a killer feature in photo editing across any OS platforms. It is especially beneficial to users who are using some recent MacBook Pros supporting HDR10/Dolby Vision (e.g. iPad Pro 2021 with XDR display). For web publishing compatibility, HDR-PQ AVIF could also be supported. Please kindly support.
  6. Is anyone here familiar with the process of creating HDRi maps in Affinity Photo for 3d modeling? I am struggling to find info on the correct process. I did find some documentation from Affinity, but there was just not very much info on it and I still am a bit confused on how to correctly set this up. Thanks to anyone that can throw me a video or more detailed explanation! Best, Jordan
  7. I'm having difficulties understanding EDR / not able to make it work in Affinity Photo 1.10.5. I have a Mac Studio running Monterey (12.4) connected to an 8K LG TV for a monitor (LG 65NANO95) through a DENON HDR compatible receiver. The option for HDR is available in Display Preferences, and activating it causes the TV to show a HDR badge. The DENON shows it's passing through a 12bit HDR10 YCbCr 4:2:2 signal with profile BT2020. I take a ProRAW photo with my iPhone 12 Pro, and open it in Affinity. Depending on the various assistant settings it can look quite washed out, or alternatively underexposed. I've found that if the assistant is set to Apple core image RAW Apply tone curve on (off and it's too dark) Display transform is unmanaged (ICC makes it washed out) Then I will get a nice looking photo which resembles what I expect / version displayed in Photos. Problem is ticking the EDR option has no effect on the image. It indicates a max 3.35 / +1.74EV and ticking EDR clipping shows affected areas when I push up the exposure, but the image itself doesn't change when EDR is on (other than the clipping indicator when that's on). On the other hand, if I set the following: Serif Labs engine all assistant options to no action Display transform to ICC Then the image initially appears very dark, and I have to thrust exposure up to +5 to bring it up to realistic levels, but the image loses saturation. However flicking the EDR setting on and off does at least show a difference in the highlights. This behaviour isn't what I would expect. I'd be hoping that there would be some combination of settings which open the initial image in a reasonable state, and turning on the EDR option would allow the highlights to shine even brighter. What is it I'm doing wrong?
  8. When I export the same image from Affinity Designer, there is a very clear difference in terms of brightness. To test it, I created a simple black to white gradient. Using the three different Colour Formats (with the same Colour Profile: sRGB IEC61966-2.1 (Linear)) in the "Document Setup..." panel, I exported three images. Here are RGB/8, RGB/16, and RGB/32 (HDR) respectively: Also here are the histograms for the three images, put through Affinity Photo: I am a self learning graphic designer so if this is intentional then I'm sorry, but shouldn't the images be virtually looking the same, save for the "banding" and the noises from PNG compression?
  9. Hi Guys, a strange thing, one of my users wanted to load a serie images to make a hdr with the hdr batch. But it ask only for AP file format. This is also by a file batch... I see on my desktop only the AP format, but can load normal jpg files to it. has someone this before? He used versie 1.10.5.1342 on the laptop and desktop (where it works). OS: win 10
  10. I have a copy of Affinity Photo. It says it's 1.10.4.1198. Unfortunately, I can't find any information on much of anything on the Affinity site, including exactly WHAT the current version of V1 is. And when I asked about updating, it sent me to the Microsoft Store to update for Windows... BUT, what I would like to do is export a set of images to Affinity from Lightroom, and have Affinity USE those images to do a "New HDR Merge". I can get the files there, but can't see HOW to tell Affinity to USE them to do an HDR. How do I do this? I have it set up as an external editor, but that's extremely limited - if I send three images, it creates .tif files. Instead I'm exporting directly, but either way, I need to know HOW to make Affinity USE the files. I figure this is something simple and stupid that I just don't know. Is there a command line parameter when calling photo.exe to tell it to do an HDR with the images it gets? Or there's got to be some other way...
  11. Hello I would like to propose a feature that would allow the user to switch between the orginal and the current adjustment of raw image in a faster way. I am aware of the syncing feature but there are times when it just takes a lot of steps to just view the orginal especially if you accidentaly synced the wrong adjustment. This new toggle button feature would just allow a quick way to switch from orginal. In a simple way, this is like a toggle button that disables all the effects/adjustments including the overlays.
  12. Using Affinity photo, I managed to turn a source image into an illustration using the G'MIC plugin and HDR merge functions. Used G'MIC Engrave and Autobalance, HDR Merge with dramatic tone map.
  13. i did try play little bit with HDR
  14. Hi all, I'm playing around with doing some various exposure HDR with AP and am in the Tone Mapping Persona. I have a spot (the moon actually) in an image and have outlined it with an elliptical mask....the trouble is, it is marked the mask like a typical quick mask with red...I cannot see under that red to be able to see what the adjustments are doing there. I've tried hitting the "m" button to see if that would turn the mask highlighting on/off....didn't work. Any suggestions out there as that I can't find much in the way of documentation or YT videos showing use of the mask on the Tone Mapping Persona.... Thank you in advance, cayenne
  15. I am very new to using the Affinity photo software and photo editing in general so please excuse my ignorance. I recently started shooting virtual tours and have been experiencing the same issue with most of my indoor photos inside of buildings where the open windows have ended up with very bright and washed out highlights. I have experimented with HDR 9-step bracketing and have improved my shots considerably but the window sections of the pictures are still too washed out for my liking. Most of them end up with a blue hue to them and I would like to understand how to remove that blue hue and improve the exposure of the outside scenery through the window. I have included a few sample shots to help illustrate what I am trying to describe. I am using the Insta One X2 camera which does have its limitations but it is all that I can afford at the moment and just wanted to be able to make the shots it produces as good as possible for now until I can upgrade to a better camera.

  18. I have Affinity 1.8.4 which works fine with my Mac OSX when using the HDR facility. My question is "Does the .afphoto file produced keep a record of the individual file names which were used generate the composite file, and is this information accessible?". I would comment that for a 300+ MB file size, one could reasonable expect this information to be readily available. Many apologies if I have missed it and the information is already there.

  19. hi, cant wait to try affinity photo for windows, and my number 1 question is: does or will Randomcontrol "ArionFX for Photoshop" link plugin be supported? i am asking here as its not on your list: http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/ i'll buy affintiy photo definitely if it is best regards Reinhard Kepplinger
  20. Hej there, I am using an i7 Skylake with an GTX950M and 16GB RAM, still I get very very slow panorama and HDR renderings from Canon CR2 files. At the same time, very little CPU capacity is used (~15-20 %). Tonemapping panoramas takes easily a complete afternoon! I would love to see an performance upgrade in future versions (even if I have to pay for it). Otherwise, Affinity Photo is close to irreplacable as the generated images are excellent. Even the output using the default settings is much better than for example Aurora HDR, imho. Sincerely, Benedikt
  21. HDR with Photo and 32bit preview to true HDR monitor Asus PA32UCX. To output HDR from AP, you need to enable HDR On in WIn 10 to get the EDID working for HDR so the 32bit HDR selection is active in AP. But, what WIndows does is it seems to then create an ST2084 (PQ) to 2.2gamma EOTF to the monitor so SDR content looks correct. It then relies on the HDR content to be tagged correctly for the ST2084 EOTF to work. In AP, the HDR becomes active but with a 2.2gamma. I need to work in ST2084 for VFX/cinema/HDR for video. So it seems AP does not send a tag correctly to Windows to pick up the profile selection in colour settings. I have tried loading a ST2084 profile in both AP and Windows default etc and it always remains a 2.2gamma, not ST2084 EOTF. I have tried the OCIO config with ACES, but again it seems it is interacting with the ST2084 to 2.2G that Windows is applying. Any ideas please. HDR is not usable if the EOTF is wrong, regardless of getting the peak luminance to 1000nit and the primaries correct.
  22. Hi there I don't own Affinity Photo but considering purchasing. Simple question really, is it possible to create a HDR merge macro and then apply it to a batch process?
  23. I would love if you could add a way to process timelapse sequences shot in HDR so that if I merge the three exposures and edit them as a 32bits file I can select a folder that contains for example 300 frames (1 in 0EV, 1 in +3EV and 1 in -3EV) and batch the same way that Photomatix does. This is an example of a timelapse frame that I have never been able to process because of this slow process. Here it is https://500px.com/photo/48376766/perfect-sunset-at-%22el-remate%22-by-fabriccio-diaz-?from=user_library I would love to process a 720 (3 exposure = 240 blended frames) HDR Raw Sequence and not having to manually edit each frame!
  24. Hello everyone I would like to know if it is possible to do a flow hdr in automatic. Batch processing. I made dozens of HDR a day and I'm a little tired of staying behind my computer. any Idea? Thanx Franck
  25. I am trying to merge 3 photos taken on a Sony a6300 and Affinity Photo keeps crashing. This happens every time I try to select these 3 photos. I am on the latest version of Affinity. I am attaching the hdr options I have enabled as well as a copy of my PC settings. I have Affinity setup to use my graphics card as the renderer. My graphics card is a NVDIA GTX 760. I have validated that the drivers on my graphics card are up to date as well. I have also uploaded the raw files to my google drive. They can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VTGhsGbHLvUmMe2phK2Qg8OY1r_FpOgo/view?usp=sharing Please let me know if there is any other information that you need.
