  1. I recently updated Affinity photo to version 1.7.2. After updating, the lens correction for my Olympus 8mm f/1.8 fisheye does not appear to be doing anything. Prior to updating, the automatic lens correction would straighten out the distortion from the fisheye lens, and the image in the develop persona appeared quite different depending on whether the automatic lens correction was enabled or not. Now, the image appears almost unchanged, whether the automatic lens correction is enabled or disabled. Affinity correctly identifies the lens, but it seems like the information on how to remove the distortion has been lost from the lens profile. I have tried changing the setting in the Develop Assistant from "Apply Lens Correction" to "Take no action". After that I've tried checking the box under Lens Correction, and it changes the image almost imperceptibly. Previously, it was a quite noticeable change when I did this. Has anyone else experienced this or know what should be done to fix it? Or, alternatively, what am I doing wrong? Thanks!
  2. Hello together, I am aware that there have been threads on this topic, but none of them provided a solition. My problem: I've been in the process of developing some cr2 from my Canon 80D when the develop persona opened the raw files way too dark all of a sudden. This happened in between two images. One image opened just fine - the next one turned out way too dark (see attached image). The thing that makes me really wonder what happened: When I now open the first one which worked normally, it now opens too dark, too. Even though it has worked before. I can't seem to find a solution to this problem and it breaks the software for me. I am dependant on a working develop persona and in the middle of delivering a set of pictures to a client. I love Affinity Photo + Designer and would be sad if I had to switch to Adobe because of this :-/ Any help is appreciated. Have a nice weekend!
  3. When editing a photo in the Develop Persona, there are the Basic, Lens, Detail, and Tones Panels. In the Basic, Details, and Tones Panels, there are several adjustment sections, for different types of adjustments you can make to the image, that follow a set of "rules". When a section is expanded it is automatically activated and any adjustments made in that section will affect or show on the image. When a section is collapsed it is, or becomes, automatically inactive, or dormant, and any adjustments that were made in that section will not affect or show on the image. These "rules", however, don't apply to the Lens Panel. In the Lens Panel, you are able to collapse a section, by clicking the icon on the far left, and that section will still be active. I'm not sure which way is correct, though I prefer being able to collapse a section without it automatically becoming dormant.
  4. Hallo und guten Tag, ich hätte für die Develop Persona drei Ideen. Wie wäre es noch einen HSL-Button einzufügen. Dieser HSL-Button müsste dann aber auch auf einem Overlay funktionieren, so das man bestimmte Farbe im Bild verändern kann. Weiterhin würde ich es begrüßen, wenn nach dem öffnen jeder RAW-Datei automatisch immer der Button "Einfach" ausgewählt ist, da man ja mit Belichtung, Kontrast etc. beginnt. Der Button Schatten und Lichter könnten noch detailreicher sein. Bei einigen Bilder wird es nur ein bräunlicher Matsch. Für die Photo Persona wäre nicht schlecht wenn man die vielen einzelnen Ebenen einer Arbeit im Ebenenstapel über einen Rechtsklick (Menü geht auch) zusammen fassen kann (reduzieren). Die jetzige Funktion zum zusammenfassen der Ebenen (Dokument-Reduzieren) sollte weiterhin bleiben. Wünsche noch ein schönes Wochenende
  5. Hi everyone! First i’m loving Affinity Photo and am amazed at what i can do with it. One thing that bugs me though is figuring out the workflow from multiple raw files to end photo. I shoot mostly portraits so lighting circumstances are the same for multiple photos at a time. I basically have 2 things i’m wondering about depending on what is possible. Is it possible to apply the develop persona settings to multiple raw files? I believe you can do that with the desktop version by saving it as some sort of preset. I would love to know if this is at all possible on the iPad version. Otherwise feature request Another route would be to use Lightroom for the developing proces and then exporting it to cloud storage. I’ve tried tiff files but that generates 150 MB files from 25 MB raw files (exported as 16bit). Also tried jpegs but would prefer a file type without compression/data loss. Next thing i’ll Try is DNG. I would love to here your thoughts and suggestions! Thanks.
  6. There needs to be a way to go back and forth between the Develop and Photo Personas non-destructively when working from Raw files. This has become the standard workflow for how I do it (and how I teach my students!) in PS: I open the raw file with CameraRAW and then choose to "Open as Smart Object" in PS after developing. This allows me to double click on the smart object layer and go back and tweak things in CameraRAW non-destructively. I had hoped it would work this way in Affinity, but it doesn't seem so. After Developing once and going into Photo persona, if I try to go back to Develop and tweak things, the previous settings are gone and it's like I'm starting over (without really starting over... more like re-applying some new setting on top of the old one). Also, would love if the Nik Collection plugins could run as Live Filters. Having to duplicate my image layer to get a pseudo-non-destructive edit is annoying because of how much larger it makes the file, and there's no way to go back and tweak a setting, just have to trash it and start over if I don't like how it turned out. Overall, I would like to see a push towards more non-destructive editing wherever possible.
  7. Hi, I've tried to salve some presets in Develop Persona but there is a wrong in White Balance. I choose and set all options in Basic, but the temperature and the tint doesn't save...why? Thanks! affinity.mov
  8. Hi, after some inversigation I found out, that the new Noise Reduction algorithm increases the develoging time more than three times (on my machine): #135: 4 seconds (default setting) #243: 13.5 seconds (default setting) also the new Lens Correction and the Lens Remove Vignette increases a bit the developing time. Without any settings the developing time is nearly the same: #135: bit less than 4 seconds #243: bit more than 4 seconds Is there any chance to improve this in the future or enable to toggle between the new and old noise reduction algorithm?
  9. Hi Mark, regarding the developing performance with a 22.3 MP .CR2 of a Canon 5D M3 Load time: #135 --> 7.5 secs first time, later then 6.5 secs #240 --> 4.5 secs first time, later then 3 secs Developing time without adjustments (default settings): #135 --> 4 secs all the time #240 --> 13 sec all the time and I get a "washed" out image (btw. it's 1.5 seconds faster then the previous betas) If you need a sample file, please let me know... Thanks!
  10. I have just updated to the new Beta version .231. I am on windows 7, I took in a Raw file Nikon .NEF spent some time in develop persona as I always do, having got my image as I wanted it I pressed 'Develop' to move to the main Photo persona, after the usual pause the picture came up as expected, but a second or so later it changed to be extremely pale, over exposed or High Key, almost unrecognisable. Certainly not usable. I re-booted, chose a different file, still a Nikon .NEF, did no work in develop, and took it straight into Photo person, the same thing happened, an unworkable image on the screen. I have been using Affinity Photo since day 1,. and I have been using the last beta version .209 very successfully, I updated today and, as a result, I now have no photo editing software. I have taken a couple of screen prints to show the effect, and I have put them in a word document, attached to illustrate the issue Please Help Dave Affinity Photo develop problem.docx
  11. Hi, My Affinity-edited photos as seen on others' devices & a calibrated projector have come out EXTREMELY over exposed. They look fine on my monitor. I have calibrated the monitor. Someone noticed the 'profile' dropdown in the Develop persona is set my default to Adobe RGB. I was told that this should always be sRGB. I can't find a way to update the default to one of the sRGB settings permanently. I have been doing my RAW conversion in Cannon's DPP as 1) RAW files don't have thumbnails & look terrible (under exposed & under saturated) in Affinity as my camera (Canon 77D) is not yet recognised by Affinity & 2) DPP has an easy way to 'fix' under & over exposed parts of the image that Affinity can't do as well as being able to view the RAW images. I then do further processing in Affinity. It appears that I will need to go into the Develop persona & change the 'profile' value before developing & exporting the image every time. Is this a common problem? Is the fix correct? Does this relate at all to my camera not being recognised? (also is there an ETA / release when this camera will be included?) I can't provide a screen dump of the images as seen by others as they look fine on my monitor but very embarrassing showing images at my camera club . Any enlightenment would be appreciated . Thanks Julie
  12. Hi I know there are a ton of these already but, my question is this. If I develop a raw file with NO adjustments and then go back to the Develop Persona, the histogram is much better= spread out properly. Why is this and is this now OK, or is the raw histogram ever going to look right? - it should surely to do proper developing, or am I missing something? Thanks...
  13. Issue Opening Canon CR2 RAW image in Affinity Photo for Mac Develop Persona results in image being split into multiples and parts of the image replicated over the rest of the image when using Apple Core Image raw engine. Steps 1) Open Affinity Photo 2) File>Open 3) Select attached Canon CR2 RAW image>Open 4) Notice CR2 RAW image opens in Develop Persona and is split into multiple parts and parts of image are replicated (see attached screenshot) Desired Entire Canon CR2 RAW image is displayed in Develop persona without being split or replicated Notes I don't know when the issue began, but it was fairly recent. I believe it may have started after upgrading to macOS Mojave. The issue has not always occurred and this camera used to work fine with Affinity and Apple Core Image raw engine. Issue does not occur when using Serif Labs raw engine. However, Serif Labs engine does not properly support T7i/800D RAW files in Affinity 1.6.7. Issue occurs in Affinity 1.7 Beta when using Apple Core image raw engine. It does not occur when using Serif Labs raw engine. The Serif Labs RAW engine in Affinity 1.7 Beta does a better job of handing the Canon CR2 RAW Image. Issue occurs regardless of where image is stored on hard drive. Tested from desktop, Pictures folder and external drive. Issue occurs when opening from right-click context menu. Issue DOES NOT occur when opening in Affinity Photo from Photos Edit With menu. However, this bypasses the Develop persona in Affinity. (This is a possible workaround for now) Issue does not occur in Photos or Preview.

  14. I would like to know whether or not an ability to batch process RAW images in the Develop Persona is in the pipeline? I am Chair of a local Amateur Camera Club and I know that a number of the members are reluctant to move to Affinity from Adobe because of Lightroom and the ability to batch process images. I have managed to score a couple of converts where individuals are not wedded to Adobe and that is because of price. I am sure more would convert if there was a batch processing option in Affinity Photo. Apologies if there already is one that I am unaware of.
  15. Hi, When you use overlay paint too and eraser in Develop persona, brush doesn’t make a smooth lines but rather places dots (see the screen recordings). The recordings are using fingers. I also noticed issues when I use Apple Pencil 2 and brushes: strokes get much thinner and lighter as if I’m not pressing enough, but nothing changes if I add pressure. Could we have opacity option for the brush and eraser in Develop Persona, please? 6FDC0C1A-E358-42B8-A4F5-9574A9F8A85C.MP4 3ABE00F4-FBFC-4F8B-8F98-9E3F0E6A07BB.MP4
  16. Just purchased Affinity Windows version today. Why would the shape or position of the histogram be different when viewed in the Develop Persona compared to the Photo Persona. Attached are two screen dumps, 1) A RAW file just prior to developing, 2) The same image immediately after being developed. I find it difficult to adjust a RAW image due to the positioning of the graph in the Develop Persona. My camera is an Olympic EPM1, the image is an ORF. 2016-12-11_220225.pdf 2016-12-11_220309.pdf
  17. Is it possible to make use of macros developing RAW photos in Develop Persona? "Macro" appears in studio only in Photo Persona.

  19. When I import a RAW file to develop persona the orientation is ignored. I found out that the crop tool is able to rotate the image but it also crops the image to the canvas size - I guess this is not the intended way to simply rotate an image. But how can I rotate an image in develop persona? Thanks for your help, Frank
  20. Curious about the ETA of updates to the serif supported cameras and lenses. Will there be support for the Sony A7R III and the GM lenses any time soon? Just wondering because even though Apple supports the above, not very complex. A question also, is it because you don't have enough images to work on?
  21. In the portrait tutorial here made by Affinity, we see that the editor doesn't do much editing within the RAW develop persona. Is this a matter of personal preference or rather a good editing workflow? And as a follow-up, does applying something like shadow recovery in the Develop persona perform any better or worse than the shadow recovery layer in the Photo persona?
  22. Ehy guys, yesterday I needed and probably will need in the future the ability to rotate RAW images in develop persona since Windows itself isn't able to do it. Rotating via the crop tool context toolbar is very difficult so it'd be nice to have the facility I've written above.
  23. I have been using AP for 2 years.when i imported raw images shot on Nikon D800 to develop, they looked bit dull but not that bad.Now i have Nikon D850 and the images look ok in camera and Affinity photo for ipad but look awful in develop persona on Mac.Also I was surprised at the auto white balance readings and thought the camera did a bad job.last night downloaded free trial of Photoshop cc and images look fine there in camera raw and also the white balance readings are totally different, more likely expected.I am attaching the screenshot of develop in AP and camera raw.check the WB readings in both. Now please can someone help me sort this issue if its fixable Thank you in advance Charles
  24. Hello ! My normal develop persona work flow for the Mac desktop version of Affinity Photo is to use the selection brush as a new later and "snap to edges" for a clean selection. Ie if I shoot backlit portraits I will select the subject in a new layer in the develop persona and work on that alone without touching the background. For the life of me, I cannot find an option to snap to edges for the selection brush in the iPad version of Photo. Is this not an option?
  25. It should be possible to apply the same settings of the develop persona when importing a set of RAW images. Saving the settings, loading the photos one-by-one and loading the settings every time is too time consuming. In Photoshop Elements this is no problem! Please refer to this thread:
