  1. Hi there! I recently started using RAW rather then JPEG for my photos and I'm somewhat confused. In both, Windows and macOS, when previewing CR2 files in the preview tools that come with the OS, the images load and for a moment they look (sometimes drastically) different than when loaded in Affinity Photo. It takes maybe a second or so and the images seem to be processed, after which they look like they do in Affinity Photo. On macOS, with XnViewMP, it always displays that "unprocessed" version, it seems. Can someone explain what's happening here?
  2. I have a problem opening RAW files direct, I've tried Sony ARW raw files from my A7iii and Canon CR2 files from my 6D. Affinity Photo crashes immediately after displaying the embedded jpg preview file. I'm running version 1.8.5.703 on Windows 10 v1909. I don't usually open raw files direct as I usually round trip TIFFs from Capture One. If I open the same RAW files using the "Open in Affinity Photo" option in Capture One the RAW opens correctly without crashing. Similarly using the right click "Open with" menu in Explorer opens the RAW without crash. The problem seems to only happen if the file is opened directly from the File - Open menu in AP. Is this a know problem and is there a fix or work around for it?
  3. Hi guys, i've a serious issue: when i sharp a picture in RAW mode and then i develop, this lose my sharpening and become soft again. What's wrong???
  4. will there be any ability to save a sidecar file for a raw edit in the new release? i can't see it in the beta
  5. Lately, i’m not able to import a raw picture taken vertically. Do i need to change settings Or does the app require an update ? tnx
  6. Hello, I have a NEF raw file taken with my Nikon D7200. When I open it in Affinity Photo in the develop persona, it appears cropped: I lose quite significant portions of the edges of the image. I've haven't touched any settings by this point. Is there some default settings I'm missing? Or what's going on? Interestingly, I can open it in Affinity Designer and see the entire photo, but not in Affinity Photo. Best, Joachim
  7. Most (if not all) RAW processing software I have worked with so far have ways to remember settings and later continue the RAW processing with these settings or perform adjustments to these settings if the final outcome (e.g. final JPG image) proved to be not perfect. There are two aspects here which imho need improvement to make this iterating process less frustrating: 1. Saving photo-specific RAW settings (e.g. to sidecar files) Currently Affinity Photo has only one rather cumbersome way to achieve this: You have to create a Preset for each tab where you changed settings and if you re-open the RAW file later you have to load all these presets again. (Affinity Photo shows them selected, but this is irritating since they have not actually been applied. Only after switching to another preset and then back are the changes taking effect. - A small bug I'd say.) Most other RAW processing software either automatically stores or optionally allows to store a small sidecar file together with the (unaltered) RAW file so that if the RAW is later opened again, the user can continue where it left off. An alternative is Affinity keeping an internal database about the settings of each RAW file, but this approach usually fails if images are moved to a different folder or archived (which happens to all my images after processing) and Affinity doesn't know about this. 2. Allow switching back to real RAW processing from Photo persona Also when I developed a photo and then switched back to the Develop persona (without doing any edits inbetween, I should note), I found myself not editing the original RAW file, but applying further edits on the already processed image. This was a big disappointment, as it defies the benefits of working on the RAW file. This means for example that If I found out I applied too strong noise reduction or too strong highlights clipping then switching to Develop again does not help, because what is lost in the developed image cannot be recovered. Please offer the user an easy possibility to apply changes to the originally processed image afterwards. (Which means, that the application must remember the RAW settings at the time the image was last developed). Matthias
  8. There's countless threads in this forum where people ask for a DAM. Serif confirms that there's some plans, but so far they didn't reveal what they are working on. Reading the requests brought up by users I see that they ask for very different things: Some want a straightforward viewer app, others even request complex database driven software with nifty filtering options to handle huge asset collections. The term DAM unfortunately isn't very clearly defined. Hence my question: Do you need a DAM-program by Serif? And what should it be like? [Edit: Unfortunately I can not do anything about the terrible Poll formatting. Maybe staff can add an empty line between the questions?]
  9. Hi Everyone, Hope I placed this in the correct area. I was curious, is there any benefits to using Capture One for Raw editing over Affinity Photo's Develop Persona? Thanks in advance!
  10. When importing DNG RAW files from a DJI Mavic Drone, Affinity does not recognize the built- in lens profile for lens correction. The profile is there, Lightroom and other programs recognize and use it to correct distortion. The drone is the very well known Mavic 2, the profile name is DJI FC2204
  11. Hello I recently switched to Affinity photo, currently on the latest version 1.8.4, been using it for like a year and so far loving it. except the following issue. I am using Nikon Z50 camera, and set my camera to take photos in RAW + JPEG whenever I shoot a photo, then copy the sd card contents to my mac 1. The JPEG taken by the camera has correct colors / white balance / exposure. 2. Opening the NEF file in Affinity photo develop persona, and change nothing, click develop then export the resulted image to JPG looks so flat, no vibrant enough, and it's really really hard to match the exact white balance i saw or the exact white balance of the original JPEG mentioned in point #1 3. Opening the same NEF on Capture One 20, and also changning nothing and export the image to jpg, gives way better image, comparable to #1 but not exactly 4. Opening the same NEF on FastRawViewer then taking a screenshot of the view also gives a good result, comparable to #1 but not exactly For comparison, i did the same for photos taken with my old Nikon D3400, and surprisingly the resulted image from Affinity photo NEF -> Export is not far from the original JPEG from camera. See d3400 original: vs d3400 processed in affinity photo (NEF -> Develop -> Export) I am wondering what might be causing Affinity photo to be off this much when processing NEF files especially for Nikon Z50 ? does any one with Nikon Z50 faces the same problem? Thanks
  12. running AP 1.8.4, but AP still does not recognize any lens profile for LX 100 M2. I added "Leica DMC-LX100 & compatible" to my favourites in order to quickly apply a suitable profile manually. In Develop Assistent I also set Lens Profile Default to "last used". This helps some way. I'm not sure that "Leica DMC-LX100 & compatible" yields the best possible adjustment. So what is the current state with LX100M2?
  13. It seems that there is no support yet for the Canon R5’s CR3 RAW format. When will this be supported on iOS and MacOS?
  14. The App develops my photo without warning and without me touching anything. The issue occurs in the middle of edits and the screen blinks and develops my photo prematurely when I'm not touching anything on the screen. Device: iPad Pro 2018 12.9 inch 1TB File: Fujifilm X-Pro 1 RAW file .RAF Video: https://youtu.be/OlfIgFUOSTc It's not a great video as I haven't used Affinity Photo in many months because of this problem, but the issue happens consistently, ie. every single time I edit a RAW file. To just watch the issue, please watch: 2:52 and 12:16.
  15. Affinity Photo currently does not support the .gpr filetype - please add support to ease workflow! (Adobe DNG converter is a terrible extra step!)
  16. When developing a RAW file (I have tried DNG and RW2 with same results), the images look completely different after clicking the Develop button in the Develop Persona. The image looks completely washed out. See the before and after attached. Using Windows 10, Affinity Photo version 1.7.3.481. Problem started recently, I have not changed any settings, same video card, display, color profile, etc.
  17. Hi! I have some issue with Affinity Photo when editing RAWs and was trying to open RAWs in every possible way to edit it, but it no matters how I load files it'll be like this – Opening file -> Editing in Develop Persona -> Clicking "Develop" -> Waiting for finishing develop process in Photo Persona -> Weird and not accurate look of my edited photo. I have this problem since updated to 1.7.3, but after that I had uninstalled AfPh and then downloaded 1.7.2, but it does not help. Please watch video until end, because I'm waiting there for finishing of Developing process, but the dialog window is not visible. Thanks! Affinity Photo 2019-10-06 15-05-09.mp4
  18. Hello, I am having problems working with a specific set of NEF files I shot using my Nikon D610 SLR. The other night I shot some photos of Comet Neowise. I planned to use stacking, and shot 9 photos in a series. I can bring most of these images into Affinity Photo and either develop them or create a new stack without a problem. All but this one set of stacked images. This set of photos is unique from the others in that they were all shot at very high ISO (25,600), where all my other NEF images are much lower (3000 or less). I can view these images in the MacOS Finder, in Preview, in GraphicConverter, and in other applications, and they are rendered fine, even in GraphicConverter's RAW processor (which is inferior to Affinity Photo's). But if I try to open one of these RAW files for developing in Affinity Photo, I get a display of random RGB noise. The first few lines of pixels in the image show normal, but the rest is noise. And when I create a stack of these in Affinity Photo, the top band of the image is fine, but the area of random noise is evident, although greatly reduced due to the stack mean. Affinity Photo does report the correct photo data (ISO, camera, lens, etc.). Attached is one of these NEF RAW images, a screenshot of what I see in Affinity Photo when I load one of these images (mostly random noise), and a screenshot showing what MacOS Preview displays for the same file (a bit faint, but fine). I have not altered the files in any way; I've only download them from the camera. Since my other applications can open/display the file, It seems to me this is a problem with how Affinity is handling the files, as if at a certain point in the file it is interpreting the data incorrectly. I think this set of files might generate a decent image of the comet, if I can load them properly in Affinity Photo. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you. 20200724-Nikon-RKL_0353.nef
  19. Hi, Could someone please tell me why the 'Show AF Regions' option in the Develop Persona is always greyed out for me? I have tried photos that are RAW files from a Sony A57 (.ARW) and RAW from Fuji HS20 (.RAF).
  20. 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!
  21. Hello- I am a new Affinity user (got the program this January.) I have questions about the Develop persona. I shoot with a Nikon D7000 and use a Dell laptop running Windows 10. I find that NEF RAW files usually display as very dark in the Develop persona and lighten significantly when I hit "Develop" and move to the regular Photo persona. Then I have to re-adjust the levels if I want to get it back to how the photo appeared after edits in Develop. The confusing thing is, this does not happen with every image, and I can't figure out which variables differ between the photos that preview accurately in Develop and the photos that do not. It might have to do with which specific edits I applied in Develop, and this issue may come up more with photos that were already on the darker end of the spectrum. I have checked my monitor display settings and they seem to be OK. Is there something I can do to make the Develop persona provide a more accurate preview of how the photo will appear in the main Affinity Photo Persona? Is there something basic I am missing? Thanks, Alexis
  22. Hello Affinity Users Group - When making a panorama, is it better to start with raw files, or tiff files converted from raw? One of the reasons I ask is that, if you make a panorama from raw files, when you click Apply to get out of the panorama pseudo-persona, it kicks you out into the Photo persona, not the Develop persona, so you don't get the chance to even use the tools in the Develop persona. So it's not clear to me what has been done to the individual raw files, and if there was even any advantage to starting with raw files in the first place. On a related note --- if you open a raw file in the Develop persona and click Develop without making any adjustments, what specifically has been done to the raw file? Thank you.
  23. Before we start, I already checked these posts. Sony QX1 raw ARW Black Screen https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/49821-sony-qx1-raw-arw-black-screen/ [FAQ] List of Supported Raw Cameras (1.8.x) for Desktop & Lens Correction list https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/73699-faq-list-of-supported-raw-cameras-18x-for-desktop-lens-correction-list/ I bought this product to edit the raw file of QX1. But, QX1 raw image(.ARW) still has doesn't working with Affinity Photo for iPad. At first, I thought it was just a bug, so I waited and wrote because it still doesn't work. When I import the ARW file of QX1, pops up that the app does not support the format. QX1's raw image is really working well with current iOS(iPad OS) version. Actually, it's been quite a long time since it worked. Working with default "photos", "Adobe Lightroom", etc. So, my problem and question is "Why Sony ILCE-QX1's raw format(.ARW)?". If you need a .ARW sample for this, here. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1u8ItzScA5xj_GsknSoze2IlbM8Bo8adh/view?usp=sharing
  24. Hello Affinity User Group - I repeated the making of a panorama in Affinity Photo with the same image data but with two different image formats. The first time I started with raw files, and the second time with tiff files that were converted from raw to tiff using the Sony software "Imaging Edge." My camera is a Sony a6300. The panorama made from tiff files was noticeably brighter than the panorama made from raw files. Here are the questions that I have: 1. Why does this happen? 2. Is the histogram the only difference between the two panoramas? 3. Is one way better than the other; i.e., when making a panorama, is it better to start with raw images or tiff images?
  25. Hi, I have a simple question. First off I love Affinity Photo and am moving all my photo editing needs over to it, but was wondering why all my .ORF files consistently appear at least 1 to 2 stops darker in the develop persona than what the JPEG embedded preview shows? Is there a setting that I have wrong or is this just something I have to get used too? I'm currently running 1.6.2 on Windows. I'm used to seeing the exposure level showing the same level as the JPEG preview in other editors.
