  1. All the best for 2019mostly done in Affinity -- +Lr5. Not going to add too much here as I'm just putting a few thoughts to the test for better Panoramas and Manual hrd/blending as done in the top images. Hoping to share a few ideas sometime this year lol the panorama is west to east ; around 160 degrees. Around 6 -8 Pana Fz300 raw files . Handheld btw Starting to get the old head around Ap; yet there is so much I still need to get up to speed on Questions are welcome
  2. when developing HDR images there is the danger that with RGB color mode you get color faults, because RGB represents color and luminance in the same value. If Affinity Photo would enable a LAB 32 bit HDR color mode that would solve the problem. Because color and luminance are now separated, the large dynamic range of HDR images are mainly reflected in luminance. This prevents color faults during HDR generation. By the way, I like the way Affinity Photo is adressing HDR development in the workflow. However, because I quite regularly get color faults during development, I can not use it in many situations (see attached image as an example for such a color fault in the sky). In this case I use my LAB 32 bit based HDR development programm (Oloneo), which produces nicer color without color faults.
  3. This problem did occurs after creating a HDR merge / tonemapping (3 old NEF files out of my 2014 archieve) When adding an inside border effect "stranger things" :-) happens. See attached video. The problem also occurs with the Beta V 1.6.5.109 If I export the document as a JPG file and reopen it everything works as usual. Inside BorderProblem.mp4
  4. Hey, I have 3 pictures as tiff opened Affinity. Those are all taken with bracketing and was trying to convert those to HDR. I know this is kind of stypid but seems like there ain't option for merge layers as HDR only open as file. It ain't hard job me to just open those files that is true but was thinking is there change to add option for merge layers?
  5. 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

    HDR Presets

    Hi there, i am looking for importable HDR Presets. Thanks Stefan
  7. Is there some reason why automatic lens distortion corrections that are applied to a single RAW file when the assistant is so configured, are not applied to RAW files that participate in File | New HDR merge... ? It would seem to be one of the more evident things to do. Now I find myself having to remove pin cushion and barrel distortion in a separate step. I am running ver. 1.6.7 on a Mac.
  8. Hi and hello, I've the problem, that affinity photo (V.1.6.8) on my iPad (2017 & iPad Air 2, both running on 11.4.1) crashes every time, I try to merge RAW files. Standard workflow is, import the RAW files via Lighting to SD Card Adapter on my iPad (Tested with RAWs from a Sony NEX 3N, Sony Alpha a68, Canon EOS 5D III & 5DS). Then I open Affinity Photo, click on the "Plus-Symbol", the HDR Merge. I've tried to choose from 3 to 6 photos, no difference. What happens next is, with luck, Affinity Photos don't crash via "Loading from Photos" (when its not crashs, it needs an eternity for loading). But I have a 100 % failure rate, means crash rate, when affinity photo starts to merge the files to an HDR. An thats really frustrating. kind regards Ben
  9. Hi, Feel Free to merge this if anyone else has asked, but is proper 10 bit display output to get non-banded gradients currently possible with the colourspace options, or is it on the roadmap? I know Affinity Photo (Mac) doesn't seem to support it yet (hoping it arrives there soon).
  10. Hi, When I try to open the attached nx.hdr, Affinity Photo 1.6.4.104 says "This file type is not supported." It can be opened in other application. Thank you! nx.hdr
  11. I just got Affinity and started to use it. At first photos were merging fine as a photo stack or HDR merge, but now the photos start to merge and then don't complete. Ive tried closing and reopening the program, Ive tried shutting down and restarting the computer, nothing has worked to get Affinity working again. this is the main reason I purchased this program, so I could merge photos! Please help. Thank you
  12. I am pretty new to AP and still learning my way around. I need some advice on how to handle an alignment problem. i’ve shot a moonrise over the skyline of a big city. The moon was almost full and very low in the sky, just over the top of the skyscrapers. It was 40 minutes after sunset, so it was already quite dark. So, I took about 8 shots at various shutter speeds so that I would have several bracketed around the correct exposure for the moon and several more bracketed around the correct exposure for the skyline. With so many shots, and with the extra delay for mirror lockup for each shot, it took over a minute to snap all the photos. As a result, the moon moved quite a bit over the set of shots. if I don’t auto align, then the buildings stack perfectly and make a very nice hdr composite, but the moon is a disaster. If I manage to get them to align the moon, then the buildings would become blurry. in a perfect world, i guess I would separate the sky from the city, merge the stack of sky pieces, merge the stack of ciy pieces, then put the 2 merged pieces back together somehow. any suggestions?
  13. Please fix issue with wrong header in HDR file exported by Affinity Photo. Probably you use RGBE instead standard RADIANCE header. (this problem has been resolved by guy from https://hdrihaven.com/ whose HRDI files caused the same problem ) Unreal Engine has problem with import HDR file after Affinity exporting. File exported from Photoshop works fine ! Because of this (only of this problem) I had to start to use Adobe Ps with its slave annual fees !
  14. Following recent posts on Super-Resolution, and Nik HDR, I thought I would try Nik HDR Efex Pro on a single image. I had an image created using PhotoAcute trial on a burst-mode set of images to create super-resolution image. It worked (leaving a watermark), but the image seemed to have lost some detail in the shadows. See image 1, which is a full-resolution, cropped image from the PhotoAcute .dng output, developed and exported as .jpg.. I then applied Nik HDR Efex Pro to it and got this: And, for comparison, I used Affinity New HDR Stack on the single PhotoAcute dng output: The two HDR images are a great improvement on the untreated original showing detail in the shadow area. However the Affinity New HDR Stack took an age to process, at least 30 minutes and maybe longer (I went off and cooked and ate lunch). My previous experience with Affinity New HDR Stack has not had such long times, although the file sizes had been smaller (Super-Resolution enlarges image by 200%). Has anyone else had such a wait? John
  15. I've been trying out Affinity Photo's HDR merge couple of times with 360x180 panoramas. Today I had problems when composing an indoor photosphere. One of the images had a window and incoming sun rays. After HDR stacking the image lightning and contrast was different than with the rest of the images. I used full manual settings in the camera and the same Affinity HDR preset for all the images. It looks like that HDR merging has a dynamic nature and the results vary depending on the lightning and contrast of the scene. Is this correct? Is there a way to set "static" or "manual" behavior for HDR, so that the end result is the same compared to other HDR stacks? This is quite new area to me, so I may be asking stupid questions here, or doing things wrong way. If you have any tips or experience on the HDR panorama workflow, please let me know. I'm using Hugin for stitching the photosphere together.
  16. Hi, After contacting Franzis the compiler of HDRProjects 5 plugin with the question ' I have now turned to Serif Affinity Photo and would like to ask will there be a HDRProjects 5 plugin made available as unfortunatly the plugin for Adobe products will not work with Affinity Photo.' Answer from them 'Thank you for contacting us. We are currently working on it and the option will be available soon. ' Russ.
  17. When using RAW images as a source for HDR, Panorama, Focus Merging, it shoud be possible to adjust the settings of Develop Persona. Currently the photos are imported without being able to do this. Please also refer to the threads above.
  18. Hello, I have a problem with the pictures from the LUMIX FZ1000. In the single-RAW development, the vignetting is ok, but if I combine 3 RAW files via HDR put together probably the camera correction is not applied. See hard copies. I think this is a bug and should be corrected. This applies to all charging functions HDR, focus, etc. Greetings Dieter All Pictures with New Version: 1.6.4.104
  19. The HDR Merge outputs results that are far to washed out/bright compared to Photoshop CC 2018. Not only are Affinity's results poorer but it takes twice as long to merge and complete than Photoshop surprisingly. I've attached both results below. Both are the default that comes from each only Ghosting has been removed from each. This doesn't have an effect on the dynamic range issue. Pretty much all I'm asking is that the HDR Merge is improved to at least match Photoshops results.
  20. Here's my scenario, I did some editing of 14bit raw files in the 32bit hdr format recently using the develop assistant and because of unusual artifacting and noise i abandoned the idea and switched back to 16bit development. However, all raw files continue to open in the 32bit hdr development format. Can you offer any advice for a fix? The latest update 1.6.3 did not help. The screen shot shows a raw file opened when the develop assistant was already set to 16bit. Thanks! David

    HDR

    Update HDR are very poor quality. What happened to the HDR function? All three image were from the same set of Sony raw files. Left most image is using NIK to create the HDR. Middle one is HDR from earlier version of Affinity. Right most image is using the latest version of Affinity. Right most image show noticeable detection in detail, color, and shadow areas. If this is an improvement, I may have to return Affinity and use other software.
  22. Hello, Can Affinity Photo make HDRs out of copies of a single photo (as opposed to photos that were shot with real, in camera, exposure bracketing) that have been edited to be different exposures? I am not sure if I am experiencing a bug or not, because some programs simply can't do this. When I try it this way the resulting image ends up being very over exposed. It looks like this: I tried changing the colour profile and using a couple different types of files (jpeg and tiffs) and nothing works. It does this to much darker images, too. The weird thing is, I was able to do this in Affinity Photo before. It worked fine! However, it was quite a while ago, so I can't remember if I did anything differently. I must have done something right, though, because that's how I made this: So, I'm a bit unsure if this is bug or not.
  23. I’ve just had a play with HDR merging using 3 jpegs from a Lumix G80/G85. The resulting image has totally saturated colors which I can’t adjust to give a result anything like the original photos. Any ideas how I fix this? Pardon me if I’m doing something stupid as I’m new to this software. I’ve uploaded the result of the merge below.
  24. Hi, I mocked up a few ideas that I think would improve the functionality of the Photo merge tools by making it easier to switch between them and add images directly. Say you drag a few images into one of Photo's merging tools, only to realize you opened the wrong one. The commands are grouped in the menu, two have keyboard shortcuts right next to one another, and the tools have similar layouts, making this a fairly easy mistake to make. Rather than having to hit Cancel, open the intended merge tool, then relocate the images you want to merge, what if you could just switch to it, with the images you added still in place? The functionality of the Batch tool seems different enough to warrant it remaining separate. To keep the various merging options visible to the user, it might be best to keep their individual items in the File menu. Each would just open the unified interface to the appropriate tool. It would be great to be able to drag-and-drop directly to the Images pane rather than having to open the file picker, then drop to it, then click OK. The visual styling of the window widgets is a bit confusing; the brighter widgets are disabled. This is contrary to most GUI conventions, including how the OK button is disabled in the tools themselves. If the Panorama tool isn’t resizable because the panorama previews would have to be re-rendered (a processor-intensive task), just fix the width of the preview pane while allowing the Images pane to expand. There is some ambiguity in the Panorama tool when you have stitched multiple panoramas together. If you don't explicitly select all of them in the preview pane before you hit OK, only the last selected one will build. A different button label or counter tallying how many panoramas will be rendered (Render 2 Panoramas) might be sufficient. NTH: a way to tell which images constitute which panorama after the panorama preview is generated. This could look something like the mockup below. Ideally, the number displays next to the panorama preview would handle discontiguous stitches nicely, so if you used three of 4 images out of sequence, something like “1 – 2, 4” would appear next to the thumbnail.
