  1. Hi! I work with 360 photos and I love your live equirectangular projection editing feature, but the maximum FOV is very limiting. The feature could come in handy to fix nadirs and zeniths, but the 90 degree FOV is just too low. Coupled with the 2:1 aspect ratio, it becomes next too useless for the intended purpose. I have to edit nadir and zenith in 360 photos very often, but had to revert back to the cumbersome procedure of exporting a rectilinear crop, editing and then converting back to equirectangular again. So, a few things would help: make to FOV grater than 90 allow changing canvas aspect ratio to 1:1 Would changing the FOV limit be possible through preferences or registry editing? Best regards, Robert
  2. Affinity Photo for iPad does a really good job stitching panoramas from sequences taken with my iPad, although the process is extremely awkward when using the camera within Photo itself. What frustrates me is that the panorama feature cannot handle full frame fisheyes taken with another camera, to make spherical 360 photospheres. I’ve imported sets from a Hero 6 Black and from a Sony Alpha 6000 with full frame fisheye, and the panorama functionality makes a mess of them. It doesn’t have the capability to re-project a fisheye to equirectangular prior to stitching. I think the panorama feature is using the SIFT algorithm to get really good feature matches from standard photos, which streamlines the stitching. For desktop and Mac, AutoPanoGiga uses this, also. There is nothing for the iPad (or any iOS device) that will fit full frame fisheye images (or any other lens) to stitch spherical 360 views. Affinity Photo should fill this gap, and it should be able to stay in RAW to make them so further processing in Photo can refine the image.
  3. So i've taken quite a few pictures with my camera ready to be stitched into nice panoramas. Except, I cannot drag and drop the files from windows explorer into the New Panorama window of AP. Have I missed a setting or is this simply not possible? It's a bit tedious to search through thousands of photos to find the series i want to stitch. Any Ideas?
  4. New Photo user. I shot a panorama using my iPhone 8 the other day, brought the JPG into Photo to enhance and notice thin vertical lines in areas of consistent color - such as sky. Perhaps due to the phone stitching many images? Is there any way to eliminate these? How? Thanks for a great editor. The more I use it and view the tutorials the more I am impressed by its capabilities.
  5. hi together, is there a way to create a logo, which can be added to a 360 degree panorama (for e. g. to be used within facebook), within affinity photo ipad version? i have seen some tutorialqs for photoshop but i am wondering how create such logos with affinity photo on the ipad. thanks in advance for your answers.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Hi All, I recently got Affinity Photo to stitch some panoramas I've shot and I'm starting to get frustrated. I shoot 360 tours so I'm always on the lookout for new photo stitching software, but I'm not exactly ecstatic about the results. When I upload a folder of about 82 photos and hit stitch all I get is a light blue rectangle with just a little bit of one photo in the middle. All the photos have sufficient overlap, probably about 80%. The photos were shot in brackets, but I converted them to singular HDR photos. Is there a solution to this problem. I was thinking maybe some way to force all photos to be in one panorama, like Autopano. I was pretty excited to use AP, not going to lie. The features like roll correction and autofill are pretty amazing, I just hope I can connect the photos so I can use those features. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. 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.

  10. i have a ioptron ipano pro and im primarily looking to use affinity for panorama stitching. A single panorama can contain 100 ~ 1200 images depending on the settings i use. thanks and have a wonderful day
  11. When stitching 32-bit HDR panorama from previously HDR merged OpenEXR source the panorama "persona" in Photo 1.6.6 does not offer the 32-bit preview panel, this can impede identification of stitching artefacts
  12. When selecting images to use in a panorama, the selection of the necessary images is based on a grid of square (rather than rectangular) thumbnails, making it difficult to select the correct images for the panorama. It would make more sense to show thumbnails that show a/ the full image from edge to edge and b/ in the correct orientation of portrait or landscape. cheers Chris
  13. Hi! I made a 360° panorama with Affinity. And it worked really well. But I would like to set a new middle for the panorama. How is this possible? I already tried to change the time in the exif and xmp-data to get a new order for the solo pictures. It does not work. How Affinity Photo set the start of a 360° panorama? Best regards Alexander
  14. Hi, yesterday I shot a panorama of a sunset and decided to try and use affinity photo to stitch it together. After uploading the images, this is what I got: Is there something I am doing wrong or is it just a bad panorama? Thanks, Jayvin.
  15. When the panorama dialog is open you can't select open images behind it. This is frustrating as it causes 'dead time' where you can't do anything — it would be nice to be able to stitch a panorama in the background while editing files.
  16. When I click 'Stitch Panorama' in the Panorama dialog, there is often a wait of ~1 minute per panorama for the stitching to complete (working with large TIFF files). A progress bar would be helpful here so that the user knows the program is making progress. There is sometimes a spinning progress wheel in the centre of the panorama dialog when stitching panoramas, but it doesn't always appear — this may be a bug.
  17. Hi, As the heading suggests, when editing panorama in iPad, there does not seem to be an 'inpaint missing area' tool. In the examples shown, their is a magnifying glass ? icon above the panorama window. Is this only available in the desktop version. is their any way to inpaint the missing areas in the iPad version? If not, is this feature likely to be included at any later date?
  18. Hello, I get strange artefacts on intersections of panoramas which I can't understand, since there are none on originals. Is there any way of avoiding this please? File too big to upload but it consists of regular 'scalloping' of light and dark intersections Michael
  19. Hello, First of all I have to say thank you for doing an alternative to photoshop (and illustrator) it is more than welcome! I am doing some 14k hdri panorama editing at the moment and found some things which unfortunately work not as well as in photoshop yet. Maybe there is a way to fix them!? The process: To get rid of the tripod in the picture it is necessary to do some clone stamping. So what you do is flipping the image vertically and then use the rectangular to polar filter to unstretch the floor. after clone stamping you use the polar to rectangular filter and flip the image vertically another time. The Problems: - after using the polar to rectangular filter the top of the image does a weird stretching (photoshop doesn't do that) what I do to avoid this is just making a mask and only paint in the edited (clone stamped) parts. Unfortunately the second problem is bigger: - after using the polar to rectangular filter the image is unsharp and has a weird jpeg like artifact pattern. First Problem (Stretching in the top of the image) Second Problem (Unsharp Artifacts) It looks similar to the artifacts in the following post: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/16741-rectangular-to-polar-good-results/ Thanks!
  20. Hello! I am not sure if I am posting in the right forum, so forgive me if I am. I need assistance in stitching photos together into one. I read all the other posts on the topic, but here's what I am aiming at. I have three pictures that I want to place side-by-side; it's three photos of an action, so they look similar but have subtle differences. When I try to use the panorama feature, all three photos get layered on top of each other, and I am not sure if it's because the photos are of the same person in action and the differences are subtle or what. Any ideas on how to put photos next to each other? So, here's an example: But what I want is for each layer to be side-by-side instead of on top of each other. Any ideas? Thanks!
  21. Hi, I'm seeing something unexpected in the Panorama tool; I've watched the tutorial but my image seems to be anchored to the top left of the alpha background frame after stitching instead of centered. It's like the top and left of the stitched image are being forced to conform to the top left corner of the frame. Attached are some grabs of the issue: 1. After adding the four photos I get a good alignment in the right-side panel of the Panorama window. Looks normal. 2. After I click "Stitch" the alpha background frame appears in the main view window but with the stitched image offset and apparently anchored to the top left, instead of centered. 3. You can see in the Navigator that it is at 18% zoom and that the Navigator believes the image is centered. 4. When I zoom in to 50% the Navigator shows the area it believes is being enlarged. 5. However, the view window has zoomed in on the centre, cropping off some of the top left of the image. 6. Dragging the frame over to the top left of the image you can see that it has been cropped/skewed to force the top and left of the image to fit into the corner of the frame. I've tried several other photo sets with the same result. Oh and when I "Apply" the panorama to get to Photo Persona the result is the same. ...I can't see an option to stop this, so hope you can help. EDIT: I have tried on my laptop and have the same issue, so prob not an install issue... any ideas??
  22. Thank you for the 1.6 update. However, I am disappointed that basic drag and drop functionality is not available in the panorama, hdr merge, focus merge, stacking and other file selection dialogs. I usually have a finder window open and I can see the files I want to include in a stack or batch, but then I have to use the add files button and navigate (again) to that folder and select the files. Would love to just drag them from Finder onto the selection dialog list control. This should be a pretty basic code change. After all, drag and drop is coding 101 stuff and shouldn't cause knock on effects or regressions.
  23. Alas, the growing season is over, but the panorama persona nicely stitched three raw frames taken hand-held while standing on a park bench @ Roseland Cottage in Woodstock, CT. Straightened some verticals (18mm wide angle lens) and did some minor tone work and sharpening.
  24. I have Affinity for windows, and I'm really impressed. My old laptop struggles to run affinity though, Looking at reasonable priced new latops (low end) it seems NONE of them can manage a 1920x1080 screen resolution - and I don't use it often enough to justify spending a lot. But I notice that I can get an iPad Air 2 for less than a laptop, and I think I'd use that more too. Editing photos is a big part of what I want to do, so my question is: Is an iPad Air 2 good enough to run Afinity pro withot it being awkwardly sluggish? And that applies to photo editing, and panorama stitching, (which I suspect is considerably more demanding)
  25. I have a number of panoramic images taken by an iPhone, i.e. the iPhone already did the stitching of separate shots. I'm probably missing something obvious, but how do I open these images in AP to use its panoramic tools? If I just open it I simply end up with a rather elongated picture which is not quite what I was after
