  1. Hi all, I’m just curious more than anything, ive always had an issue with batch processing. All I use it for is to take my AFPhoto files and batch convert them to JPEGS. I find that no matter the size of the job my iMac crashes. Even if it’s five images my Mac full on freezes and eventually shuts down and restarts. I don’t get a kernel panic in the logs but it’s clearly what’s happening. Does anyone else find this happens or have any other ideas so that I can convert with out having to do them one by one.
  2. The Batch Job feature in Affinity Photo is great, but one crucial feature that's missing is the ability to select multiple folders and subfolders and all the images inside automatically being added to the list. The whole idea of the Batch Job is to save time from manual labour, and sometimes having to go through tens of folders and subfolders and manually selecting all image files to be batch processed is a very manual and time consuming process. Thanks
  3. I would love if you could add a way to process timelapse sequences shot in HDR so that if I merge the three exposures and edit them as a 32bits file I can select a folder that contains for example 300 frames (1 in 0EV, 1 in +3EV and 1 in -3EV) and batch the same way that Photomatix does. This is an example of a timelapse frame that I have never been able to process because of this slow process. Here it is https://500px.com/photo/48376766/perfect-sunset-at-%22el-remate%22-by-fabriccio-diaz-?from=user_library I would love to process a 720 (3 exposure = 240 blended frames) HDR Raw Sequen
  4. I've been processing photos with Affinity for a few years now, I've never noticed this much of a difference in the color of a photo from when I'm previewing and then opened in Affinity. I'm not the most knowledgable person out there, but I know enough to know that RAW files are going to be a bit bland before processing, however, I don't ever recall it being this much of a difference. Forgive me if this is normal, if it's not, any tips and info on what's going on here would be appreciated.
  5. Hello, I'm having a similar issue with crash, simply by selecting the menu item... New Batch Job... I have 1.7.1 and Mac OS 10.14.6
  6. Hi, I cannot open the Batch processing window (Affinity crashes when i click "File->Batch"), plus my previously used batch jobs are no longer in the library. I really depend on these batch jobs, how can i get them back? Thanks. Affinity Photo 173 on macOS 10.14.6
  7. Hello, I return to the topic of what goes on in the panorama dialogue. There appears to be still too much interference when assembling RAW images in that the saturation is increased far too much and strong colour shifts occur. I appreciate that we are more recently advised to convert to another compression format such as TIFF before processing but it would be good to be permitted to take control of something like this and not have it automatically judged by what the algorithm thinks we might want! Changing the outcome subsequently requires a huge amount of manual readjustment, not always succe
  8. I’m about to adopt the Affinity suite of apps for iPad and Mac OS. (Photo and Designer) I am a heavy Lightroom user. What are people using to do this function if you are not using Adobes Creative Cloud? Ideas?
  9. I have read somewhere that AP cannot create Spherical (360) panos, is this correct?? If so, what can software(s) can produce, handle/stitch, create Spherical (360) Panos?? I am using a drone to capture the individual images and need an appropriate software package to create the 360 Pano. I was under the impression that AP could handle/produce the 360 Panos before purchasing, etc. Now I am learning it is more of a great editing tool for an already created spherical (360) Pano Image... Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  10. I've been so busy that I haven't had time to deal with the "you must update your CUDA driver" message that appeared since the latest MacOS update (and for which there are apparently non-Apple solutions), but it did raise an interesting question: does the Affinity code also use this driver to speed up processing, and, if so, does that still work with this sort-of-bug-that-nobody-seems-to-claim? I like the idea of using all the horse power in a machine to make things go faster - heck, I like anything that goes faster - so I'd be interested if fixing what is at present just a nuisance may help
  11. Hi the team, This morning I have to use the batch processing, but it always crash Affinity Photo when I want to use it. I've uninstalled 3 times the app, but it have not solve the problem. I join you the crash report, I hope it will be usefull to help you to help me ( ^_^!) Thanks by advance batch crash report.txt
  12. It’s great if AP app run in background. For example, when I merge 20 photos, it takes about 30 minutes on my iPad Air 2. When I change the app like facebook to check something and back to AP app, sometimes, AP app relaunch!!
  13. Hello Community, My question may seem too simple, but here it goes. I shoot in RAW and process my photos with Affinity Photo for Mac. I have recently been given guidelines for the photos I can post on my website, with minimum dimensions, dpi and crop ratios. I guess I was hoping someone could help me figure out how to meet these guidelines while processing. I know I can set a size, but sometimes the photos become to light on the dpi when I crop. I know I can try to fix this problem with my camera, but I hate to get great shots that are then ineligible when made to fit the guidelines
  14. Just got AP and first impressions are v good (previously years of Photoshop use). Tried processing my first raw file however and the image has a dark vignette at the corners. Never had this problem in Photoshop so am initially surprised and at a loss as to what is causing it. Previews ok on my mac. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Apologies if this is posted in wrong section - am first time poster. Also am I correct in assuming there's no direct support, as I just got directed to the forums when I clicked on the support tab? I've attached a small jpeg of the file
  15. Hi, I have finally switched from Photoshop to Affinity and to my "disappointment" I have just noticed that when I am opening RAW files shot with my Leica Q that there are heavy lens distortions. Are there any presets or plugins that I could use to solve this issue? I would really love to use Affinity and give up my Adobe account, but until I can process my Leica files in Affinity I will be stuck with PS :/ Any idea how to handle this issue? Thank you so much for your help. Alexander
  16. Sometimes AP needs time to do things, from loading an image to doing a fancy transformation. When this happens, it appears as if the program has frozen. It would be nice if you could show a message somewhere to let me know it has not died but is working on something. It's also good psychology to say 'I'm doing this ... Now I'm doing that ...' so I can see how hard AP is working for me.
  17. I'm going to be as diplomatic as possible, but I'm also not going to sugar coat or be PC about things. While I absolutely LOVE Affinity Photo for what it does right, I am equally unsatisfied with what it doesn't do right at the same time. There's a real catch .22 I feel, with AP in that so many people have moved away from Adobe, singing praises that it is THE PS killer etc etc.. Especially for two distinct groups of people. The first group, are those who by principle, don't like being told that they don't own the software they paid for, and don't like being held hostage to a monthly su
  18. Hi, I have question about the Tone Mapping Persona tools which I really love. I would like to better understand what is happening under the hood when using Tone compression tool and Local Contrast. Usually for realizing what some tool does I use SliceTool in Nuke, which shows me what is happening with the curve after using the tool. On images below we see what tonemap tools do to the curve of the linear gradient ramp. Some results are pretty crazy like when local contrast is combined with Tone Processing. I thought that if I apply same curve as
  19. Hey Guys, I would love some advice about workflow RE doing a Batch process in Affinity and then being able to fine tune each photo afterwards - to individually tweak the settings applied in the batch process. Any ideas? Thanks!
  20. I am new to Affinity Photo and maybe I am missing something. I cannot find an indicator showing the software is busy. Sometimes I wonder if the software is hung up. Is there a way to turn on a busy indicator. Tom
  21. Been testing out AP for a couple of days now and there's a lot to love about it, especially for €40. Really like the way it processes RAW files, it's almost as good as Capture One and better than Photoshop. As a wedding photographer I can easily shoot thousands of images per day, which I narrow down to a couple of hundred. While I really like using AP, at the moment it's workflow is too slow - I know you have batch processing in the pipeline and that's eagerly awaited. What I'd ideally like is to be able to quickly see all files in a folder displayed on a scrollable dashboard, then by cli
  22. Hello! I'm quite stoked that Affinity Photo 1.5 now has batch processing. Working on a mac, I quickly went to test out this feature. It's great except that the Batch/Job UI could use a bit more love. It doesn't seem to like drag-and-drop a whole lot. I was hoping I could drag a folder or separate files into the task list but nothing threads up. I can only do by clicking through the file loader dialog. It would also be nice to have a batch process bar somewhere to get some kind of visual feedback somewhere, even if it's just a thin line or animated clock-sweep icon somewhere. All in
  23. A white point panel which enables setting the white point. I don't really understand the use of the current white point panel. There is no tutorial about this crucial aspect of processing. So, feature request: white point set: click a Kodak grey card in your photo and have all colors reset a usage tutorial for this proposed feature, and a tutorial about the current white point panel - how best to workaround current limitations...
  24. Hi, I tried to develop NEF-Files coming from a Nikon D610. The camera Profile is not shown (see screenshot 2) and AP does not convert the camera profile into the output profile. The result is much to red in comparison to the image developed by Nikon View NX (see screenshot 1). Can you help?
