  1. 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.
  2. 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. Regards Nick Edwards 3 October 2020
  3. Hello, and sorry if this has been posted before. I got to capture a nice headland shot of a lighthouse. I set up the camera to capture 5 images in a burst - in JPEG and DNG format. When I use AF HDR merge function with the JPEG images - the image comes out correctly, with a relatively flat horizon However, when I use the DNG images - and the HDR process starts; a pronounced curvature is given to the image. Not what I am looking for. The original DNG flies are exactly the same as the JPEG, with the same horizon aspects. Any pointers please? This on Affinity Photo 1.8.3, using iMac OS Catalina 10.15.6 I've attached screenshots of the image to show what I am on about - you can plainly see in the HDR DNG images the upper corners of the image have dropped against the text.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Hi, Using latest 1.8.3.641 on Win10-64, I try to HDR-merge 3 TIFF files, and the program crashes (closes abruptly with no message) early during the merge process, if auto-align is enabled. The TIFF files were exported by Capture One 20, originally from Olympus E-M1II RAW files. Oddly, merging those original Olympus RAW files directly in Affinity Photo succeeds, but unfortunately chromatic aberrations are not corrected so it's not a valid option. I attached crash report files. e6321abd-9b84-42a3-9c80-3eecd079bf61.dmp attachment_Log.txt metadata
  7. I have used the lightroom plugin to edit three bracketed shots in affinity photo. So I have three tifs duly loaded but the only option seems to be New HDR which only allows me to add from hard disk. Have I missed something?
  8. Hi, I just HDR merged two .jpg and would now like to remove some artefacts by replacing them with things from the source images. I have activated Sources in Studio, but clicking on the Clone tool does not cause it to display the Sources panel. I'm using Affinity Photo 1.7.3 on macOS 10.14.6.
  9. When I open a Fujifilm RAW file (.arf) in Develop Persona it shows a development in 32 bit in the context bar. But 16 bit is selected in the develop assistant. This fault appears always.
  10. Hello, I have an older Olympus E-M5 and to make the most out of it I use bracketing to ultimately create HDR scenes. There is of course the challenge that the camera should be very still and stable when taking these photo's. Now, I mostly use AE bracketing with 5 successive shots with different exposures, and I end up with 5 raw images. When merging those into HDR picture it can achieve incredible high quality results, even for a camera that is more than 6 years old. My question is: can I simulate bracketing? I quickly tried by taking one jpg (not raw), tone down the exposures, save the images, and ultimately use those in HDR merge, with varying results. I guess doing these with raws should result in the same when taking 5 (or even 7) separate multi exposure shots? If simulating works, than I only need to take 1 shot. I won't be needing a tripod and a cable to a remote shutter button! Another question: does Affinity support batch processing raw files?
  11. HI All, I have already seen the thread - But it does not seem to help me. I am using 1.7.2.471 version of Affinity and Windows 10 (Surface Book First Version). And the second copy is how it looks in default Windows Photos Raw viewer. Please help me what is wrong with this as, I used a batch processing on my RAW photos and they seem to look completely different if I try to do it one photo at a time. Thanks
  12. After using the HDR function on a single image, I'm unable to export the image as it looks on my screen. What gets exported is a washed-out version of the image. I've tried this with several different images, and I even went back to the previous version of AP. I watched the tutorial videos on HDR and didn't see anything relating to this. In my screenshot, the image on the left is what I had after exporting, vs the image on the right, as I see it in AP. To get this, I just used File>New HDR Merge, chose a TIFF image, and accepted all the defaults. Then I used File>Export to a 16-bit TIFF. I also tried exporting to a JPG and got the same results. I assume I'm doing something wrong, but after a couple hours of trying to figure it out, it's time to ask for help.
  13. I have an HDR 4k monitor. I've upgraded to Affinity 1.7. I'm loading a 32 bit image. But, the Enable HDR is grayed out and cannot be enabled. Any ideas? Thanks.
  14. In the Affinity tutorial video, the process is very quick, all 7 incorporated images flash across the screen, and the final HDR looks good. On my iPad Pro 12.9’ current version, running the latest OS, the process takes four minutes, only a single frame appears briefly on the screen and then there’s just the progress bar, barely moving, and the final product after tone mapping looks crude and blurry. I have tried deleting and reloading to no avail. A single frame HDR simulation in Snapseed looks much better. (The 2 star review relates only to the HDR feature). Is it me? (Attempts to upload example failed.)
  15. When I've an HDR Merge going on, I tend to head off to do other things. However, when I do this there's a tendency to come back later and the merge has frozen. Task Manager is then needed to kill AP. I'm guessing it's a memory-intensive activity (it clearly uses lots of processor cycles) and may be hitting the out-of-resource buffers. Still, it's pretty untidy just to hang.
  16. My first post here, although I've had AP since the first Beta version came out. I have noticed over the last couple of months that my pre-sets for AP HDR were not listed on the left side of the screen, nor were the small accompanying images displayed which show an indication of what each effect looks like. I decided to reset AP by opening it up while holding down Ctrl, and clicking on reset all. Uh-oh, now I have no HDR presets showing. Help please! AP 1.6.5.123 Win 10 Pro version 1809 (64 bit)
  17. Hi I am new in photography and using Affinity as well. I experiment with my camera and multiple focus points and multiple exposure . I am wandering using Affinity, what is the best way to create a very clear landscape photo with great DoF and to be HDR. The steps I have in my minds is: 5 different exposures for each exposure 9 different focal points then on Affinity I am thinking to merge the focal points first (grouped by exposure) , so I will get five new photos where each one now includes all focal points but has different exposure then I will do the HDR merge is this a right approach ? and how I control/decide the correct DoF (lets say is a landscape or night skyscrapers wig water in front or stars) many thanks
  18. It's 44c hot here -- working up to 46c . the record is between 46 - 47c ; but will drop to a 28c tomorrow!! This is a true "grab-shot" that happened while doing other things. Made from the three bracketed files -- just time for one click with the camera held above my head. Honest comments and questions welcome as always
  19. 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
  20. 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?
  21. 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
  23. 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.
  24. So I took a bunch of bracketed shots (five photo sets) and was converting them to HDR using Photo on my Mac on site (so people could see kinda what they looked like), its a, I think, early 2012 model, it WAS the top spec rMBP when they first came out so its not as much of a donkey as it might sound, but it was churning through the HDR merge and tone map fine, but to do my main editing I have a PC at home which is a 1700X Ryzen with 32gb DDR 4 and an NVMe SSD, not earth shattering, but decent. When I do the same exact HDR merge process on photo on my PC, its slower, like, noticeably slower, now I am assuming there is something wrong, like a setting or something somewhere that I have set wrong (I generally don't mess with settings though so pretty sure everything is default), surely there is no comparison in power between the two machines, but yet it takes longer on the more powerful one? Am I the only one who a) bothered to get affinity on both pc and mac and b) noticed this? Any tips? Cheers Charles
