  1. So I create a document 900 mm x 900 mm at 300 dpi in Affinity. when i come to export to tiff and send it to printer the file size is tiny like 5 mb. I other software the same process creates a file over 200 mb what is going wrong i have had this problem for many months an unable to use affinity which i payed for. Using 1.5.4 j
  2. Layered 8-bit TIFF files created from a 16-bit original file such as RAW or TIFF Scan appear to be too big. It seems as though they are retaining some of the 16-bit data from the original file, thus leading to a larger file size. File Size Table: To replicate the issue: 1) Download the Canon 30D sample raw file from HERE 2) Open it with Affinity Photo 3) Duplicate the layer so that the file has two layers 4) Export it as TIFF RGB 8-bit, Resampling = Bicubic and check 'Save Affinity Layers'. 5) For Photoshop comparison, use LZW main compression and ZIP for layer compression The reason why I think it's retaining some of the 16-bit data from the original file is because if you carry out the following steps, the file size is a lot smaller. Despite it being the same image, in the same 8-bit TIFF format, with the same two layers. 1) Download the Canon 30D sample raw file from HERE 2) Open it with Affinity Photo 3) Change Document > Colour Format > RGB (8-bit) 4) Copy the layer 5) Go to File > New From Clipboard 6) Duplicate the layer in the new file so that the file has two layers 7) Export it as TIFF RGB 8-bit, Resampling = Bicubic and check 'Save Affinity Layers' 8) The file size is now considerably smaller Windows 10 - 14393.693 Affinity Photo -
  3. Whilst looking into THIS issue, I also noticed that there seems to be some odd inconsistency depending on whether you convert the document to 8-bit before exporting to 8-bit TIFF, or just export directly to 8-bit TIFF from a 16-bit document. File Size Table: To replicate the issue: 1) Download the Canon 30D sample raw file from HERE 2) Open it with Affinity Photo 3) Duplicate the layer so that the file has two layers 4) Change Document > Colour Format > RGB (8-bit) 5) Export it as TIFF RGB 8-bit, Resampling = Bicubic and check 'Save Affinity Layers' 6) Repeat the above steps again, but this time skip step 4. The file size is different. Windows 10 - 14393.693 Affinity Photo -
  4. Whilst looking into THIS issue, I also noticed that when saving layered TIFF files, you sometimes get different file sizes when saving as *.TIF or *.TIFF. Saving as a *.TIF file first, then as a *.TIFF seems to sporadically change something in Affinity Photo that causes an odd inconsistency. File Size Table: To replicate the issue: 1) Download the Canon 30D sample raw file from HERE 2) Open it with Affinity Photo 3) Duplicate the layer so that the file has two layers 4) Export it as TIFF RGB 8-bit, Resampling = Bicubic and check 'Save Affinity Layers'. Change extension to .TIF 5) Export it as TIFF RGB 8-bit, Resampling = Bicubic and check 'Save Affinity Layers'. Keep .TIFF Extension 6) The file sizes vary Really it would be better to make *.TIF the default anyway. The majority of software programs (including Photoshop), scanners, photocopiers, etc. have always defaulted to *.TIF and as such it's by far the most used TIFF file extension. Affinity Photo defaulting to *.TIFF is a royal pain in the neck because in order to keep the file extensions consistent and matching current files, it means changing the extension to TIF every time you save a file. In addition, the Affinity save dialogue box doesn't see the tens of thousands of TIF files already present, as it only displays *.TIFF files. And I know it's only a matter time before someone runs a search or performs a batch operation and misses files because they were in *.tiff format. There appears to be no logical reason for Affinity Photo to use *.TIFF instead of *.TIF, especially without the user being able to change this default. Windows 10 - 14393.693 Affinity Photo -
  5. I can't seem to export a 300 dpi TIFF for print. I change the resolution in the document setting. When I export it reverts back to 72 dpi. I tried numerous times but it is not a 300 dpi. Actually when you export there is no setting for dpi ? How do i export a TIFF at 300 dpi !!!
  6. The export options for TIFF files always remember the last setting, rather than defaulting to the document color mode. I.e. if the last export was CMYK, the default the next time will be CMYK, even if the document is RGB, and the other way round. This is dangerous since it makes it easy to perform unintended color space conversions on export. Especially beginners who may not know about RGB and CMYK or just trust the default export settings might be in for a nasty surprise. Ideally, the export settings would check if the color format in the export settings is set to the same thing as the same as the document color format and in that case offer the document color format of the next document the next time. If the user changes the setting to something else than the document color format, it would offer that specific setting the next time, regardless of document format. That way it won't get in the way of, say, someone trying to manually export 10 RGB documents as CMYK, but it also wouldn't catch someone exporting an RGB file to RGB TIFF by surprise if their last export was a CMYK document to CMYK TIFF.
  7. 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
  8. Hi, Is the issue with black tiff files in preview on macs fixed in 1.5? Cheers Peter
  9. It seems that I have problem exporting edited results to TIFF and JPEG. File -> Export -> select JPEG OR File -> Export -> select 16-bit TIFF The export dialogue will appear but the progress bar does not change. After several minutes I select "cancel". Help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. best regards,
  10. Affinity Photo prevents me from Exporting a file with the extension ".tif" I am trying to 'round-trip' from CO (Capture One) which saves it's tiff files as ".tif". If I open the file directly from CO and press save, all is well and I can save the file to it's original name. If however I decide to save the work in progress to a ".afphoto" format and later want to export it back to have the properly edited file in CO up pops a dialog box telling me that Affinity Photo only wants to save tiff files as ".tiff". I now have to save as ".tiff" to another directory, rename to to ".tif" and then move it over the original. This is not user-friendly This is not a warning (you may not be able to open this fie if you do not use a .tiff extension) but a you may not save is as this. Basically the extension that I choose to save my file with should be mine. Affinity Photo should not domineer. As it makes round-tripping extremely non user-friendly I see it as a bug in an otherwise great piece of software. Please change this to a waning.
  11. 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
  12. Bonjour, Comment peut-on créer une vectorisation d'un format tiff. Automatiquement bien sûr. Merci
  13. When I export a photo as TIFF-RGB-16Bit the resulting picture is only black! This issue is fixed with Version 1.5 Beta 10, but will this be also fixed within 1.4.3? Thanks for any advice. Regards, Michael
  14. My TIFF files made with Affinity Photo are not displayed in Apple programs including Photos, Finder and Preview. This seems to happen to files made after a certain date some time this year. The Apple tech I talked to said there seemed to be a fix by Affinity Photo. I cannot find it. How do I get this issue fixed? Thanks.
  15. Any file made in designer or photo has an issue when I export to tiff. There is a few mentions of it out there but no mention of a fix. A file that should be in the 100"s of mb comes out at under 10 mb and sets up a spinning wheel in the finder and my printer can not open the file.
  16. Can I save an image as a JPG or a TIFF. If not, can it be converted to a JPG or TIFF and how?
  17. Hi, Is this possible to export TIFF images with transparency in RGB and CMYK from Affinity Photo or Affinity Designer? I can't do that from Affinity Designer so I just got the rial version of Affinity Photo to test the TIFF transparency export but it seems TIFF transparency is not supported for Tiffs. (?) Either in RGB or CMYK no matter what matte color you pick the TIFF image is exported with a solid background color. I have also tried Placing a PSD transparent file into a transparent background document in both Designer and Photo exporting it to Tiff ... same solid background. In the forums I found a few posts related to A-Designer Tiff export issues. but nothing about Affinity PHOTO. Resulting files should go to press and the CTP people want TIFF images in CMYK. Thank you for any hint, jp
  18. My imagines won't export as a .tiff. They export fine to every other format. When I export as a tiff, the file size shows as 2.7 mb, but the damsons are listed as 0 X 0. I can't open the file, nor can anyone else with several different computers or platforms. Am I doing something wrong, or is AFD doing something wrong? Waterfall Left.tiff Waterfall Left.afdesign
  19. Since this subject comes up often I am writing a definitive statement. Fireworks (layered) PNG files There is no such thing as "layered PNG". The PNG standard does not define a way to store layers, and only deals with flattened images. Fireworks saves out additional layer data to PNG files in a proprietary format using a private tag. A definition for this proprietary data has never been made public. A PNG saved by Fireworks can still be used as a flattened image by any application that can handle PNG files. These applications will handle the standard data and ignore the proprietary Fireworks data. Affinity handles standard PNG files. But, it cannot import or export the layer data using the Fireworks method. There is no expectation that we will ever be able to handle Fireworks layer data in PNG files. We acknowledge that being able to support Fireworks PNG files would be of great benefit to users of Affinity. If a public definition of the data format becomes available, we will be able to address the issue. Layered TIFF files There is no such thing as "layered TIFF". The TIFF standard only handles flattened images as part of the publicly described tags. TIFF does allow for companies to register additional tags for their own use. Adobe registered two private TIFF tags that enable them to embed layer data in a TIFF. These tags are an extension and are not part of the central TIFF standard. These tags are used to embed PSD layer data into a TIFF, in addition to the standard flattened image. Since Affinity has a PSD importer, we are able to import the layer data from a TIFF if it has these tags. However, since this is handled by our PSD importer it is subject to the same limitations as importing a standard PSD into Affinity. We make clear that while we aim to provide the best third party support for PSD, we can never replicate 100% the way Photoshop handles and displays a PSD file. Photoshop has its own approach to applying alpha/transparency, vector masks and vector strokes, layer effects and gradients. This means that while we can offer importing of editable elements of a PSD file, the result will not be a one-to-one pixel reproduction of what you see in Photoshop. We have registered our own TIFF tags for embedding Affinity layer data in a TIFF, in similar fashion to PSD layer data. This is intended for use with DAMs that use TIFF as their interchange format. When saving a TIFF file, if your document has multiple layers you will be given the option of including Affinity layer data. This will preserve the editable elements of a multi-layer document. This obviously comes at a cost of increased file size. Our TIFF tags will use our proprietary data format and as such can only be used by Affinity applications. At this time we have no plans to save TIFF files with the PSD format layer data. PSD layer data held in a TIFF file will be imported and converted to the Affinity format.
  20. Hi, Affinity doesn't open multi-layer 16-bits tiffs correctly; it's almost completely gray. No problem with 8-bits. See screenshots (one of wrong 16-bits, one of the correctly displayed 8-bits). No problems though with multi-layer 16 bits PSD's. Is this a bug? regards, Willem
  21. So I tried resizing. I have a photo scanned from a slide at 4000 dpi. I go to resize document. It says 16x20cm print size at 300dpi. I accept. Then I export to TIFF. The TIFF is still 4000 dpi. What is going on? Best regards Geir Rosset Oslo Norway
  22. How can I create and export files from a scan or some line art logo, to create files I can easily color in InDesign by choosing their bitmap content in the color list?
  23. Hi there, I noticed a potential problem with (premultiplied?) alpha/ transparency in some TIFF files. For example loading "Install OS X El Capitan.app/Contents/Resources/ProductPageIcon_512x512.tiff" (Sorry, I can't attach the original file to this report for obvious copyright reasons ;) ) shows the typical and unwanted black halo pixel effect in Affinity Photo. OS X's own Preview.app displays the very same file properly, see attached screenshot. I'm not entirely sure this is a bug in Affinity or not. In case it isn't I would appreciate a tip how to fix this problem when it happens. :)
  24. When I import a 8bit Tiff image, into AP, it might be an excess of 200mb however after retouching it, exporting it back out as an 8bit tiff image , its reduced to 21-26mb. That is a significant file reduction, something has to give, why the reduction, what's being constrained? They are both the same file! Is AP compressing it?
  25. It would be great to able able to specify compression (LZW and ZIP) for TIFF files. hanks for all you do.
