  1. Would like to have a vertical panorama capability where you can stitch images vertically as easily as you currently can horizontally. This would aid in architectural photography and creative art applications. Current panorama tool will not allow this or if it will I don't know how to apply it where the result is anywhere near satisfactory. Currently it warps the images into a distorted mess.
  2. If I try and use CR2 files for a panorama in 1.6.4 the result is an error saying "no panoramas found". I need to convert them to tiffs or something else. Version 1.5.2 can use the CR2 files in the panorama feature no problem.
  3. Some panorama rigs place a camera in an rotated orientation about the optical axis, setting the diagonal of the image frame to vertical. The effect is to tilt the picture. This is quite efficient and provides for integrated nodal alignment with the mount without need for adjustment. The attached pictures show what I mean better than words can describe. On a PC the best of breed AutoPano Giga can read this orientation without flaw, creating stitched panoramas that have no errors. However, Affinity Photo cannot do this, and makes a mess of an inclined orientation, rendering a garbage panorama. It also has a problem with full frame fisheye lenses. I have Affinity Photo for Windows and as the specs are the same for the iPad version, it would have the same problem. I want to use Affinity Photo for iPad Pro as my platform in the field when taking 360 photospheres. This will not be an option for me until Affinity can stitch a series of full frame fisheye images in rotated orientation (diagonal set to vertical during exposure). APG uses the SIFT algorithm to do this and I think the Affinity Photo panorama picture matching also uses SIFT. It should be a simple thing to program the matching so that an rotated orientation poses no problem.. This improvement would not only help with some photosphere rigs, it would also help with hand held photosphere input, which is often askew.
  4. Just downloaded Affinity photo for iPad and watched the tutorial for Panorama stitching. I have two questions: 1. What I don't see in the tutorial is a way to do a boundary warp after stitching preview, which is an option in the panorama stitching I'm used to doing in the desktop version of Lightroom. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to do that in Affinity, and if so, how? 2. It seems to work for my daytime panoramas, but when I tried to stitch two night sky Milky Way photos together it just didn't do anything. Any tips? Also, is there a way to save those video tutorials for offline viewing? I was thinking of playing with this app on an airplane...
  5. Hi, new user who has to possibly make a hardware purchase decision before I get back to my computer next week to test my theory. I want to know if Afinity has the ability to stitch together photos in 2 dimensions. An example would be a panorama with 2 rows of photos, one row containing the foreground and horizon, and the second row to capture the sky immediately above the foreground pics. I have seen many youtube vids showing this as a built-in capacity to Adobe products, but I have not been able to find any Afinity related discussion on the web. The reason I want to do this has two reasons pertaining to medium format (120 film). First, I have started shooting 120 film again, and am looking to find a quality method to scan them in with proportionally high resolution (please, no responses telling me I dont need that high resolution "since most people look at images on a electronic screen", and I already have an Epson 750, which produces unsatisfactory results). There seems to be very promising results by directly imaging 120 film with a DSLR mounted on a stand directly over back-lit film. Unfortunately, if I capture the whole negative with one shot of my DSLR, I am now working at the resolution of a 35mm camera, which defeats the purpose of why I shoot medium format. I have seen wonderful scans made from 4 or more images of the film (moving the camera or film between each shot where by each shot covers a different section of the negative). Then the 4 (or more) shots are stitched together by software, giving you a high res digital negative. All of the tutorials I have watched do this in photoshop or lightroom, which has the ability to do this automatically. Can Afinity Photo do this? If not, I imagine I could create 2 panoramas (one for each row of the negative) and then stitch those two panoramas together, but would prefer automation. FYI the other reason I want to do this is to achieve higher resolution with my DSLR by taking multiple images of the subject in the same way I would shoot the negatives mentioned earlier in my post. thanks!!!!!
  6. Hello! I used twice affinity photo to create panoramas. I love it because there is a feature "Gitterverzerrung" ?distortion? (Sorry, I use a german version. I don't know how this feature is called in english. So I use the german name). I make my panoramas without a tripod and therefore the horizon often is bended. I use "Gitterverzerrung" to repair these bends. I activated the grid and moved the corners or any point untill the horizon is straight. I can see the effect of my mouseaktivity just in time, wonderful. But now, with my third panorama this feature don't works any longer. I can bend the grid but I don't see any effect.
  7. When creating a new Stack, Focus Merge, HDR Merge, or Panorama the user is prompted to add files to the dialog. When add is clicked, the user is brought to a cloud storage file selection. The first issue is that when using these features, there is no way to add images that are already on the iPad. Some way to add images from local storage needs to be added. These features use a lot of images and it is a big time and bandwidth waste to use cloud storage only for these. Second issue, all these features require selecting multiple images, but the dialog only allows selecting one image at a time. This is especially bad because it is cloud storage. A typical usage of these features god like this, "Click add; Select cloud storage service(it always defaults to iCloud); Navigate through a couple folders; Select an image; Wait for the image to load form cloud storage; Get kicked back to the file list dialog; REPEAT 100 MORE TIMES" I could maybe deal with this if it was only the HDR feature that had this behavior since you are only selecting 3-5 images most of the time using that. But the Focus Merge, Stack, and Panorama features are all likely to use 10 or more images. Focus merging I typically have 50-250 images I have to deal with. Adding a select all files, or allowing the user to select folders would greatly help. For instance, the google drive app has a select all command in the top right. I understand that some of these issues might be softened by implementing drag and drop in iOS11, but it will not full solve the problem. Imagine selecting 50 images for a Panorama or Focus Merge with the drag and drop implementation, vs tapping a single button. It is a big difference. I hope these issues get sorted, because otherwise those features appear to work pretty well. Though I haven't been able to test them a lot, because I want to keep my hair ;) -Steve
  8. The 360º tools in Affinity are... magical. If you wanted to get totally insane, you should implement importing files from PTGUI or AutoPano, they've got a very deep toolset for aligning/warping/blending but there's nothing in those packages for cleanup. The current best way to work is to stitch in one of those packages and render out the results with each camera perspective either on its own layer or as a different image file. But that workflow bypasses the fantastic blending they do, so it's not great. If you were to import .pts or .pano we could do the alignment in the tools best suited for it and then use Affinity for cleanup and finalization.
  9. Does the panorama feature allow you do produce stereographic panoramas, otherwise known as little planets? Looking at a 360 degree x 180 degree panorama. Thanks in advance!
  10. 15 years ago, on honeymoon I took a set of photos (no, not THAT sort of photo, behave yourselves!) as handheld shots of the sunset, with the thought that one day I'd turn them into a panorama shot. Now, all this time later, with AP's brilliant Panorama mode and Tone Mapping / HDR abilities, I've finally got the shot I imagined! Thanks Affinity Warwick Fiji Panorama HDR.tiff
  11. For example, if I take spherical photos, I would wanna add my name to the photo somewhere. Most of the cases it is the origin point on the ground, or up in the sky. Now if go to live projection and design my stamp there, how do I merge it to the background projection?
  12. Hi Affinity team, I shot a panorama of four RAW files making up for one panorama. All of them are deliberately underexposed to preserve the sky details -and they have somewhat different exposure time because some of them are shot against the rising sun.. Shouldn't be a big deal to compensate this - they are ISO 200 RAW files after all. When I import them with the "New panorama" wizard, AP wants to create 2 panoramas of two images each, obviously not recognizing the four belong together. (All images do overlap significantly.) Anything I can do to convince AP to create one panorama from all four? ... apart from possibly tone mapping them separately (thus correcting for the different exposure) and trying to stitch the resulting JPGs, which is rather cumbersome. Matthias.
  13. Hi I did a trawl of current posts, but couldn't find the answer to this question. "Does Affinity Photo apply lens correction to images used in a panorama stitch, or should that step be done independently in advance?" Thanks Chris
  14. Attempting to make a vertical stitch with two images - top (sky), bottom (landscape). Description of Actions I am able to engage the [File][New Panorama] just fine, specify the two files, and stitching occurs I then enable the "Add to source image mask tool", which enables just fine Using the "Add to source image mask tool", I only paint in the landscape that I desire - essentially along the horizon from side to side. Using a smaller brush width, I carefully track the threshold between the land and sky. Render - resulting in the results indicated within the attached files. Problem - The rendered results shows a substantial area above the sky/land threshold - painted in. Returning and trying to fix this by painting in the sky just makes things worse. Additional Suggestions In addition to the "Add to source image mask tool", having the ability to select an area (dotted lines) would be another handy tool to provide within this Panorama capability Currently the only apparent source of imagery for stitching is from disk. Having a way to include images currently in processing would certainly help
  15. Hello, I am building a panorama collage out of 88 panoramic photos. Is there a way to automatically resize and arrange all the photos so they fit into one canvas? I would much prefer not to have to resize each photo individually (they are all different sizes). BTW, I have placed each photo on a separate layer. Thank you! Matias
  16. Hello, The window to assemble the panorama is really too small! Can you enlarge that by 100% ?
  17. About Panorama tool: It would be really useful if it was possible to save final panorama image as LAYERED image. That is, the images which make the composite image (placed, rotated, stretched, color matched) would each be an individual layer. There could be a simple tick box in save as dialog "(x) Keep layers". As essentially stitching produces layered image until you finalize it this should not be too complicated to implement. Also, it would be nice if panorama tool would accept Photoshop files. I had to convert to tiff to make panorama.
  18. I'm looking for a tutorial that shows me about creating (not editing) a 360° panorama. Does anyone know one? Thanks Erwe
  19. Hallo to everyone... I looked in the forum but couldn't find any answers... is there a way to export directly from Lightroom some images to the panorama sticking function, like happens for PS in Lightroom... It would be really nice!! Thank you!!!
  20. Hello everybody. To get started please excuse my basic English (thanks to the automatic translator) This is my first post here and I have a request after a small disappointment in my first test of Affinity Photo. I'm an hobbyist illustrator and I also done animations on another program called Moho. In Moho there is the possibility of spherical panoramas used as décorations, and from there came to me the idea of drawing my own panoramic scenery. But I have never found of drawing programs that would give me that ability. I was very excited about seeing that AF gave the possibility to draw directly in an environment of spherical panorama. but the problem is that this is only possible on a single layer, and I need to use that picture guide on top which I could draw my decorations. Why not let the possibility of putting the live projection on a folder containing several layers? Some examples of what I'd like to be able to do under Affinity Photo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YqUQiPvRMM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCGFMNhFMe4
  21. Hi guys! I am really loving the panorama stitching feature of AP! But I am having troubles stitching spherical panoramas in AP. Does AP handle such panoramas? I have tried several projects, both panoramas shot with an 8mm lens, and those shot with 12-16 mm lenses, but have gotten none of them to work. I have been able to successfully stitch them in several other stitching softwares, though. But I would prefer to be able to use AP to stitch these panoramas. The same is true of some 360 degree panoramas that are not fully spherical, as well. Best regards!
  22. Hello, Love Affinity, such a well thought out and versatile software. Would be great to be able to drag and drop files into the panorama mode. Thanks! Ben
  23. Hello, Full convert to Affinity, love the functionality and speed. Would be great to get more options for exposure/ blending and projection methods in panorama mode like PTGui. Are these planned? Many thanks Ben
  24. The ability to have different Panorama Stitching layouts like the ones below would be awesome. Auto Perspective Cylindrical Spherical Collage Reposition I take photos of large estates and having the option of just having the "Collage" option would be handy. Cheers, Mettsy
  25. Thought users might like to see how well the AP Panorama feature works. This is a hobbyist example of 3 images taken in a California USA street and it is the first attempt at using the AP feature. The three uploads show (1) the 3 images to be stitched, (2) the automatic stitching by the Panorama feature and (3) the final cropped image. I made no corrections anywhere along the process, although some lighting & sharpening filters might be done at this point.. Fun! :) 1 2 3
