  1. Hello All, I'm trying to make a hdr image from a serie of raw hand taken images. Saddly i miss the de-ghosting option! I know it is in de mac version. Is this feature on the planning? Because it's now pretty useless. Hope for a fast reply. Greetz, Ron
  2. I tried to make a HDR photo with my iPad Pro 12.9" (mark 1) of 3 RAW exposures from my iCloud, shot with my Canon80D and the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 lens. I ended up with the enclosed result. This seems like an alignement bug to me. It happens even with the options Align source images and/or Perspective alignment on or off. Edit: I am running the public beta of iOS11.
  3. I have been using the Tone Map Persona to see what it does with a variety of pictures. I have also watched all the great AP videos on HDR and Raw Development more than once. For the most part, I like the results for both color and black and white, especially if I use the local contrast conservatively. I understand the benefits of using tone mapping for HDR images based on bracketed exposures. What I still don't understand is what is the difference between tone mapping a single image (starting from a Raw file) vs using various adjustment layers in both the Develop and Photo Persona. In other words, - Can I theoretically achieve the same results if I tinker with various adjustments than I would if I tone map a single image after doing some basic prep work in Develop first? - Can Tone mapping a single image be considered a kind of short-cut to get particular results faster than going the other route? - What are the trade-offs of using Tone Mapping (besides more noise) vs using the "traditional" workflow of Develop + Photo? - For which types of single images does Tone mapping work best and for which one it does not do as well? - Should I make different adjustments when I edit a single image in Raw, if my next step is tone mapping vs going directly into Photo persona? Any clarification on these questions would be most welcome. Thank you!
  4. as the result at the hdr process I became a black picture Using Afinity with Windows 10 64bit prof In the beginning 4 hdr picture good working, now tried several picture, all the same result black picture what is wrong ?
  5. Hi, finally the moment has come that I have to ask for your help. Untill now I have always managed not to take your time, but now I am simply stuck. I am trying to make an HDR using 3 perfectly aligned photos of different exposures... Ususally I have no problem in doing that but in this case the result is terribly "posterised". Below are the source photos, and two results - one with all merge options unchecked and one with all options checked (by options I mean "align" and "remove ghosts" etc.). Does anyone have any idea of what might be causing such behaviour?
  6. I've been away from the camera for some time now, but last night I decided to revisit a photo I had produced late last year. This was a 3-image HDR shot while vacationing in Northern California. Processed in A.Photo... I was just playing around with some settings, nothing too serious. I realized that I haven't had much time to play with the latest features in the app and I'm hoping to change that soon.
  7. It's nice that Affinity Photo has got such good support of the 32 floating point mode but it is somehow unfinished. There are particularly two things that I desperately miss: 1. The ability to show the 32 bit float color values in the info panel. How should we work accurately with 32 bit float values if they are displayed nowhere? All that I can see are the conventional RGB values from 0 - 255 but these are meaningless in 32 bit float. 32 bit float per definition contains color values below 0 (actually a bad thing) or above 1 (actually a good thing). 2. Please make the curves dialogue zoomable so we can also edit values that exceed the white point of 1. The values beyond the white point are in fact one of the main advantages of 32 bit float.
  8. Hi Affinity team, I created a 32 bit panorama out of 5 EXR files (64MP in total). Stitching worked reasonably well and the preview showed no problems. Then I rotated the panorama slightly, cropped the area to export and exited the panorama Persona with the option enabled to fill missing parts of the panorama (using "Inpainting"). Well, first of all, it didn't really fill the two missing corners the way shown in the tutorial video - it just filled them black. But more, on the left hand side of the panorama there appeared a somewhat regular pattern of black dots artefacts. Here a detail view: First I thought it might just be a display error but the dots also appeared in the final JPG panorama image. Please find a larger crop of its top left corner attached. This is reproducible. I just spend another half an hour to process the panorama again, and again it ends up in the Photo Persona with black dots on the left hand side. :( Affinity Photo Trial (Win) Matthias.
  9. Here's my scenario I have a lenovo laptop running win10 with an i7 quadcore 2.6ghz cpu, 16g ddr4 memory and a nvidia gforce graphics card with 4g of memory. After watching the youtube tutorial on hdr panoramas, on the Affinity channel, I attempted one of my own, merging 7 raw files to hdr with no tone mapping and repeated the process on one additional image. Exporting both files as open exr documents using the default settings. I then attempted to stitch these two files as a panorama but instead i am greeted with a dialog box that says panoramas not found. (file attached) i am not sure what i am doing wrong. Please help. P.S. on the video i noticed all the files in the dialog have thumbnail images with the filename before they are stitched, my dialog box only shows the affinity logo.
  10. Hi affinity team, just want to report a wrong German translation of the word "translation" in the "New HDR merge" dialog. I don't think you mean translating the image to a different language here, but rather you mean "verschieben" in the sense of "shift". Found in Affinity Photo Trial. Matthias.
  11. Hi, I am a new user of Affinity Foto on iMac 27. I shot some pics to be treated with HDR (3 shots for one HDR +-2 stops). The first group of pics worked with Affinity was ok; for the second one the colors are fake. Can you please help me or give me some adivice? I attached the ok pic and the wrong shot taken only few seconds later. Thanks a lot
  12. My first attempt at using the HDR merge function in AP. I used three exposures: -1, 0 and +1 stop.
  13. HDR is good, but could be better. Please. Attached is an example of combination of five images (+/- 2 and 4, taken raw with Sony RX100V): hdr_affinity: as it comes out hdr_affinity_edited: with a little shadows/highlights (burns around the sun) hdr_lightroom: Lightroom's rather superior result Coupled with LR's better browse and lens corrections, it looks like I'm going to have to use it as a front end. Darn. I'm trying to get away from Adobe! (The forum won't let me upload RAW files. If you want me to put them somewhere you can get to them, please do let me know.)
  14. Hi dear community and support, I really like the HDR function of Affinity Photo for MAC. But now I need to convert about 40 HDR photos from 120 seperate photos. It would be very nice if there is a possibility to do this with batch processing... 1) take 3 following photos 2) HDR processing 3) image optimazing 4) save the HDR photo Could anybody tells me how to do this? Thanks so much. Greetings, Tobias
  15. While playing with an applescript workflow that: * exports the selected images from aperture (as 16 bit tiff) * triggers "merge HDR" in Affinity Photo * exports/saves file again * imports those back into aperture i did a lot of tests using one of my HDR panoramas (from a long time ago with a camera that only supported JPG at that time - so the source is not ideal). One of the observations was that some of the generated HDR images are "cut of at wrong levels" (I guess black/white points). When I did look at the individual sources in the HDR workflow pane I see that those "cut of at wrong levels" happen at the "source" level already. The end result is heavy solarization in the resulting image. Strangely this did not happen for all the "component" images of my panorama, so I did dig into the HDR process some more and have done the following * JPG source directly - solarization (heavy) * 16 bit TIFF exported via Aperture - solarization (better than from raw JPG) * 16 bit tiff exported via Aperture, resaved in Affinity Photo as 32 bit HDR - no solarization * 16 bit tiff exported via Aperture, "converted" to 16 bit tiff using ImageMagik - no solarization * JPG source, "converted" to 16 bit tiff using ImageMagik - no solarization * 16 bit psd exported via Aperture - not accepted as source format for unknown reasons So it seems as if there is some import issue for the sources depending on the input file format. Note that I am running 1.5.1 Any Ideas? If not then I guess I will need to add an additional "transformation" step in my workflow using ImageMagik "convert <src>.tiff -depth 16 <dest>.tiff" Thanks, Martin
  16. Hi Guys Let's start by saying that I'm a newbie not just to HDR, but to Affinity Photo itself, so go easy on the sarcastic remarks. I have just tried out the HDR functionality by taking a tripod-mounted set of five exposures on my Sony A72, ranging from -2 to +2 stops. They were recorded as jpegs. Now in all the exposures, the sky has very little discernible tone, and in the +1 and +2 versions, none at all. When I create an HDR set, the sky is depicted not as a region of no tone, but more like a simulated picture of the northern lights, with successive bands of pale blue, lavender and white. Completely unusable. The likelihood is that I'm doing something wrong. The possibility is that HDR is failing to make something out of nothing. Anyone else had this experience?
  17. Hi guys, I'm a 3D artist and quite interested in buying Affinity Photo. But I want to know how does it perform and work with 32 bit images like HDR and EXR. This is a huge weakness in PS and I hope AP can fulfill this gap for me. So, here are my questions: -Can AP create layers, blending modes, apply filters, masks and whatever I can do with standard 8bit images, so I can work non-destructively? -Is there any tone mapping tool in AP? Something on the lines of Camera Raw in PS? Does it work non-destructively too? -Does it have a Lens Blur so I can use ZDepth to apply DOF in post? To me it's very important to have non-destructive workflows as much as possible. Thanks in advance, -Eugenio
  18. I'm new to Affinity, so your patience is welcome. I have been using Aperture and PS Elements, along with NIK software add-ins, so my learning curve has been lengthly for Affinity. I will have to admit, I am loving Affinity, though....I just repeatedly have to refer to the training videos to remember how to do some things. I know, repetition is the ultimate teacher.... I shoot in raw and usually convert to TIFF to modify after minor adjustments, then to JPEG for any printing or posting. My question to you is: Do you recommend developing all raw images BEFORE adding them into a stack, HDR, Focus Merge, etc.?......OR, can you merge the images in raw and get the same results with processing after the merge? I'm just trying to save a little time, if you know what I mean. Thanks, TommyD
  19. Would it be possible to start the HDR process from open files. When you choose New HDR Merge and the dialogue box comes up. clickin on Add takes you to Explorer so that you can choose the files you want. I would be nice if you could also add files that are already open in the Develop Persona. My reason for this is I use another program for catalogueing my photographs. It has the ability to send files to external editors, and from this program I also send photographs to social media, etc. So I could choose the files I want to be HDR'ed, work on them in Affinity and then save them back to my original folder. I could then post direct from the cataloguing program to Facebook, Flickr etc... Thank you
  20. Check out the sneak peek of the HDR and 360 image editing features coming to Affinity Photo 1.5! Version 1.5 features announced today include: • Advanced HDR merge producing full 32-bit linear colour space images • An entirely new workspace for tone mapping • Focus stacking to bring depth to multiple combined images • Batch processing for smoother, faster workflow • Macros to record and replay a set of commands • An all-new way to edit 360 degree images Some much anticipated features to look forward too here, coming soon to Affinity Photo... :)
  21. I have 5 bracketed images. I chose not to apply tone mapping automatically, to pre-process the image and then in persona, when I fine tune the effects I need, I am not able to see apply button. What could be reasons for for it ?
  22. I love the new presets in HRD persona and I noticed that some presets have Tone Map MAIN (first top panel on right) greyed out but most are clickable on or off. Just curious how and why is this possible?
  23. Has someone tried if the Panorama persona can handle multiple exposures and gain any benefit from that? (It can handle multiple exposures but I´m not sure yet if the dynamic range benefits from that) Of course one can create two panoramas and then stack them and modify them but I´d find it super cool if these three steps (Stitching, aligning and HDR merging) could be done automatically. I also thought about the option to get noise reduction with this technique (like we get through stacking) This finally leads to an HDR night panorama "without" noise. But therefore I´d have to do multiple panoramas with multiple exposures and multiple ones of each to stack them (noise reduction) and then HDR merge them again. So I really think this could be done more efficiently in the panorama persona itself in one automated step. - I´m really looking forward to your HDR implementation!
  24. Dear developers, Thanks for releasing the much awaited AP 1.5! I just downloaded it, and every time I try to create a new HDR merge the application crashes. I'm running OSX 10.8.5 on a MacBook pro. I'm using 3 jpegs about 4Mb each. It doesn't matter whether I check or not any of the options below (automatically align images, noise reduction, tone map), the program always crashes and quits. Could you look into it? Thanks! Juan Carlos
  25. The Beta version and future release should allow multiple exports of tone mapped images. E.g, a version of Natura, cinematic, crazy etc of the same stack of photo's without need to reprocess each version. I am not sure the language I am using is exact. However, I currently use Canon Photo Professional for HDR and that program allows you to save a natural, bold, art bold and embossed version of the same HDR photo. Thanks,
