  1. I have encountered a problem opening a TIF file in Affinity Photo 1.9 and 1.9.1. I am using Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 on my MacBook Pro. The camera used was the Canon EOS-1D (which is supported by Affinity Photo). The original Canon 4.8 mb TIF file opens with the following dimensions 288 px x 192 px @ 72 dpi in the Photo Persona mode (it does not even try to open in the Develop Persona). When I open the same Canon 4.8 mb TIF file in Adobe Photoshop CS6 it opens properly using Adobe Camera Raw 8.3 to process the raw 4.8 mb file. The dimensions after processing in Adob
  2. Is it possible to specify interleaved vs non-interleaved when exporting to .tif in Affinity Photo? I use Affinity Photo and Designer for scientific work, and many of the image analysis programs I use only accept non-interleaved .tifs. I've got a workaround for now, where I ingest the desired image into mathematica, and then change it to non-interleaved, but it's a clunky solution. Any insight on whether this is possible would be great.
  3. I have experienced a strange error. The first screen dump is a scanned TIF raw file (from Canonscan 9000F, using Vuescan) and this is viewed in Photo Mechanic 6. When I open the TIF file in AP 1.85 it renders quite strange. If I export a copy of the TIF file from Photo Mehanic it opens up correctly. Don't know what to make of it, but I stumbled upon it.
  4. I'm trying to open a 3.88gb tif generated by PIX4D but it states that it is an unrecognised file format, any ideas?
  5. When processing a 114 mb 16 bit tif file, in Affinity Photo, after various adjustment layers are made and then flattened, the file is exported as an 8 bit tif file with the size of 57 mb as you would expect. However when the crop tool is used to reposition the image to cut the bottom part of the image and leave a blank area at the top of the image for later filling in using the clone tool, the size of the exported 8 bit tif is 76.2 mb. The dimensions of the image is correct, just the file size is 'wrong'. The crop parameters are exactly the same dimensions as the original. Before exporti
  6. System: iMac late 2015 running 10.14.5 (18F132), Affinity Photo 1.7.1. Hello, I am editing .tif files (16-bit Mac Photoshop format tiff files) in Affinity Photo 1.7.1. I've noticed that after opening the files in Affinity Photo 1.7.1 and saving changes (no layers), that the size of the file on disk is reduced by approximately 50%. The number of pixels in the files and the file bit depth doesn't appear to change, just the size of the file on disk. For example, I had a 16-bit .tif file that was 102.8 MB on disk, I opened it Affinity Photo 1.7.1, I made a levels adjustment, mer
  7. Uncompressed tiff (16 bit grayscale), is the first really compatible format by Affinity. Please do not change it in the future. (Other tiff versions are less compatible.) Thanks, for effort to Affinity improve. Good job! (It would be great to add the default file extension settings TIF / TIFF)
  8. Hi, so, I am reporting a rather obscure error. It may be difficult to reproduce unless duplicating fairly exact conditions, so I will be specific. System / Software Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit 1709 Build 16299.371 Hardware: Gigabyte 15X - i7-7700HQ / 16GB Ram / 1.5TB NVMe SSD / Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q GPU Affinity Photo: v Capture One Pro: v Issue Description Using Capture One (C1) 'Edit with' to edit an existing NEF raw file, a 16-Bit uncompressed TIF file is generated and saved in C1 and then sent to Affi
  9. Hello Affinity, I have managed to crash AFP with a tif file, I have included the file and the screen grab of the error. Regards Chris _DSC0544_artphoto_007569.tif
  10. Hello, I'm testing the 10 days trial of Affinity Photo and have an issue with multi-layer TIFF images generated by Adobe Photoshop: when I import such images into Affinity Photo, all layers are gone, flattened into a single layer. Is there a way to make Photo recognize the Photoshop's multi-layer TIFFs? Thank you for your help!
  11. I have been doing some processing of astrophotography data. These files usually originate as FITS files which are the raw data files from the telescopes. I process the files using Liberator 3 which then saves the FITS files as TIF files (8, 16, or 32 bit). When I open the saved TIF files in Photo they have large rows switched around or have data that is off the page and missing. When I open the same TIF file in Photoshop the files appear normal. I can then re-save the TIF files out of Photoshop and then Photo opens them correctly. This is on Photo running on Windows 10. Here i
  12. I always could export tif files from Dropbox into the affinity app, but affinity turns the file into a flat one layer file. Please fix that, so I can use my layers in the tif files again.
  13. I understand that it's not an option to change the default TIF extension from .TIFF to .TIF (because .TIFF is a standard?). In my case all other applications I use save as .tif. It would be helpful to at least add a .tif filter to the AP export dialog so that files with both extensions are visible in the window, currently the window is always empty :) (See attached screenshot). Thanks for consideration.
  14. File passed to Photo from Lightroom in Windows 7 64 bit. Carry out various edits - layers - masks - filters. Attempt to export tif, overwriting file created in Lightroom. Photo crashes during 'file save'. This has now happened on around 5 out of 6 times with different photos and changes. Can no longer justify wasting time doing edits!
  15. Normally i export to both TIFF and JPG when I have finished editing in Photo. JPG is easy, it always remember my prefered settings. But TIFF: The Preset setting changes every time. It is empty or shows "TIFF RGB 8-bit". I always select "TIFF RGB 16-bit" and it should remember that. Windows, Photo
  16. Tif error? The picture (mask) in the .tif format, is opened as empty, in AP and AD. In ACDSee and Photoshop, it opens correctly. (.tif file attached: mask.tif) Thanks!
  17. Affinity photo 1.5.1 crashes when loading the attached 16-bit tiff (gzip compressed to upload it) which is generated by Nikon Scan 4.0.3 using . It seems to be related to the multi-layer tiff that NikonScan is producing (high-res 16-bit RGB image as layer 0 and low-res 8-bit RGB preview as layer 1). When extracting layer 0 from the tiff with Image Magick convert, then AP reads the image fine. I guess it has to do with the unexpected "difference" in bit-depth for the different layers... Thanks, Martin test.tif.gz
  18. All my other photo software uses TIF as the file extension for Tagged Image File Format image files. I am curious why TIFF was used by Affinity. It makes my file lists look ragged and will probably interfere with sorting lists. Can we have the option to export as TIF not TIFF please?
  19. Hi, can we have consistency with extensions? When I batch save I get "fileName.tif" When I export I get "fileName.tiff" I would prefer all tif files to be saved with the extension .tif however, the main point is that they are always saved with the same extension. Thanks.
  20. Just starting out with AP and very impressed so far. I'm wondering why saved .tif files (generated from CaptureOne) increase by over 20% when saved in AP? I only have apply one small clone edit for this to happen.
  21. At the beginning I just want to say that it seems that everyone want to have photoshop but under the name Affinity Photo :) So... In Photoshop we can choose if we want TIFF with lossy jpeg compression or lossless ZIP or LZW. In Affinity Photo dialogue window there is no such thing. There resampler that suggest that AP compression algorithm is lossy. Can you tell me if it is lossy or lossless? Does it matter which resampler option I choose? What are the differences between them? p.s. Sorry for my English
  22. Hi, Is the issue with black tiff files in preview on macs fixed in 1.5? Cheers Peter
  23. Exporting a Tif file adds the file type .tiff not .tif I know both are acceptable but .tif is done by everyone else so AFFINITY should conform. cheers Ian
  24. Hello, there are reproducible crashes with a tif file. Here a "instruction": Make a screenshot of one website with "print" Open it with Strg-V in IrfanView and cut out perhaps the desired element. Save it as tif file. Open the tif file with Affinity Photo or Designer. Take a shape like the speech bubble. Go on the text tool. Crash. Regards Martin
