  1. 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?]
  2. 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.
  3. As I am already waiting for more than one year I was hoping that with this release I would be able to open my older X3F-Files (made with an Sigma SD15). But .....still not good looking, just compare it yourself: So why do you state in the list of supported cameras that you can work with alle Sigma models? Kind regards Anthony
  4. 1) Photos have been imported from Ricoh GRii to iPhoto. 2) On Ricoh's, when you shoot JPEG+RAW in black and white, the JPEG will be black and white but the RAW will always be in color. 3) From there I am attempting to import a black and white photo to Affinity. When viewing the photo library to select which photo I want to import, the black and white photo appears black and white and there is the RAW icon in the bottom right the photo. 4) I then import the photo but it will only appear as the color RAW version. 5) How do I import the JPEG instead of the RAW?
  5. Hi, I noticed a strange behavior with the release version of Affinity 1.7 that I don't recall with the last Beta versions (that I already deleted) and for sure not with the version 1.6.x. I use the Serif RAW converter to convert canon raw photo files to 32-bit linear files. When the prefs are set to 32-Bit sRGB linear, then after the raw conversion I convert the format to ACEScg. When the prefs are set to 32-Bit ACEScg, then I don't need to do anything else after the raw conversion. In both cases I export EXR (half-float files) without the check box "Color profile from name". When I loaded both files in Nuke (from Foundry in an ACES environment with each the right colorspace settings) they were looking (nearly) identical. And this made sense to me. I checked with older files EXR files (that were converted with an older version of Affinity Photo) and the two exports are visually identical. There are very small differences in the colors, this might be rounding errors. The linear sRGB file is actually ever so slightly warmer then the ACEScg file. When I do this now with the new release of Affinity Photo, the ACEScg converted file got much warmer. The two attached images (IMG_7330) were converted with version 1.7 : Prefs 32-Bit sRGB linear, Serif Engine (no tone curve), the lin sRGB was then directly exported as EXR, the ACEScg was converted with Document/Convert Format/ICC Profile to ACEScg and then exported as EXR. Both files were exported with Nuke to JPG (with the same display viewer curve RRT&ODT) The older files (IMG_8454) were converted with an older version of Affinity Photo (April 2017) I can provide the .CR2 files if necessary. Can someone explain why this happens? Best regards Daniel
  6. hello all, Just purchased a new lumix G9 and wanted to post process my first pictures in raw, but seems that affinity photo is not supporting the raw files of lumix G9. Is this correct? regards, yves
  7. I read the following topic. I use the Mac version, but Affinity Photo uses the lens profile included with macOS. I'm using Panasonic DMC-GX7 and included in the lens profile list. When I look at the lens tab in Photo (RAW), it is displayed as a non-compatible lens. The same is true when I open a file taken with a Sony camera or Tamron lens. I think that the profile is applied but I am worried because I think distortion etc. are corrected when I look at the image. Is this normal behavior? Is it an error? --- Affinity Photo 1.7(stable), macOS 10.14.5
  8. Hello all I evaluate AP 1.7 as a replacement for Lightroom but run in some very basic problems with raw file development. 1. When I develop one single raw file (DNG from Lightroom) AP writes a huge file (121MB versus 19MB original). This is no good. Is there a way to save the adjustments done in a fair way without using the alternative formats like tif, jpg etc. ? 2. I want to develop several raw files (DNG from Lightroom) at once with a batch process and saving them in jpg or tif for further processing. However, I do not manage to apply the individually made macro in Photo Persona to process the RAW files in Photo Develop, although I can select the macro. Possibly the macros are not compatible? How can I process several raw files the same way? 3. Is it still not possible in AP to save adjustments made in single raw files in an undestructive way? Thank you for your helpful answers. Best regards,
  9. Hi all, I have affinity photo on Mac and ipad since one year ago. After starting using it for few days on ipad I stopped using it since then because the raw developer was much worse quality than the Macbook one, especially in darkness, highlights and the exaggerated contrast slider effect (even at 1%) compared to the Mac one. Yesterday I updated it on both platforms to 1.7 hoping that finally the issue in the different "develop" outputs between the two versions was solved (reading all the nice changelogs). Unfortunately I found to be even worse than one year ago before comparing the same RAW file straight out from my sony a7r2. Am I doing something completely wrong or it safe to assume that it's unusable on ipad? Here I just did a quick test, and I upload the RAW file as well so anyone can try. so first, UNEDITED RAWs in develop persona. open the raw in both platform and the histogram is completely different already, you can see how much is underexposed on ipad compared to the one on Mac. The whole spectrum is shifted to the left. You might say "just crank up the exposure on ipad", but that's not the point. Did you notice all the ruined colors in the water reflections? the reflections in ipad looks like totally burned (giant color stains). If you don't have the computer/ipad with you it's even visible in the two attached screenshot "unedited ipad" vs "unedited mac". let's move to the second example, EDITED RAWs, in develop persona. Exposure raised on both to 0.53EV and contrast to 1%, that's it. Photo "edited mac" is perfectly usable now, photo "edited ipad" needs to be trashed immediately, all the details are gone black. I hope someone can finally enlighten me, I don't know what else to do. Probably is my fault as well that I never found time to write this down in one year time. Thanks! Photo_27-12-18,_8_01_14_AM.arw
  10. When I try to import the RAW photo from my Photos on iPad Pro,I get the message “Failed to open file” and at the bottom it just say “The file type is not supported “ With previous version,I never ever experienced any kind of a problem with RAW files.
  11. Without any modifications made, if you add a new View Point using Advanced mode in Navigator, photo become desaturated and unaffected by any tool parameter changes.
  12. When viewing Raw files with this latest version 1.7 the main screen is very much dimmer than the navigator screen. This was not a problem before the update. The 32 bit preview seems to be causing the problem in that if you adjust the Gamma and exposure in the 32 bit preview, the main screen brightens to the correct brightness, the navigator screen stays the same. However, this setting is then lost on opening a new file, so you have to do this every time. I am using windows version 1903, so maybe this could be the problem if other people are not affected, however the previous version was OK with version 1809 Not had time to do further tests but will update with more information when I do. regards
  13. Archive.zip 2017 033 - 18.tif only opens in "Develop persona, whereas 2017 033 - 19.tif opens as expected.
  14. Hi, I'm trying to understand why Photo opens my black and white scans as RAW color files. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm using scans from Epson Scan 3.9.4 at grayscale/16bit and saving them as .tif files with an embedded Epson 1.8 Gamma grayscale profile. Tried opening them with both Photo Beta 1.5.2 beta 5 and official release Photo 1.5.1 thanks, Marcus MacBook Pro mid-2012 Sierra 10.12.3
  15. Hi, I recently purchased Affinity Photo for use on an iPad mini 2019. The app constantly crashes when editing uncompressed RAW files that have been transferred via an SD card/lightning adapter into the Photos app. Steps to reproduce: * import an uncompressed ARW RAW file from the Photos app on iPad * Edit the file in Develop mode * Adjust settings such as Exposure, Clarity or Shadows/Highlights The app dies very frequently as the sliders are adjusted and disappears without any error message on screen. All changes are lost. Specs: * iPad mini 2019 64GB wifi version * IOS 12.2 * Affinity Photo 1.6.12 * Files are uncompressed ARW photos from a Sony A7iii. Hope you can help me resolve this, as I was hoping to use the iPad as my primary editing tool for an upcoming trip. At the moment the app is completely unusable for RAW files with Affinity Photo I can submit Photo*.ips crash dump files if that would help. Thanks /Steve
  16. Hi, as of build 118, DNG files from Leica Monochrome MM (first version) appear black when they open with the Serif Raw engine (with the Apple engine they appear fine). I have to drag the exposure slider all the way to the right to see a faint image. Before build 118, the raw conversion was excellent. I've installed build 223, but the problem persists. Thanks Thomas With Serif raw engine With Apple raw engine

    Fuji XT3 RAW Crash

    Hello, I am new to Affinity Photo on the IPad, but i am very satisfied with the functionality. I Have one Problem. When I try to load an Raw Image from my Fujifilm XT3 Affinity Photo says Loading and then crashes. Apples Raw Converter should work with uncompressed RAF Files. Is there a solution for this Problem? My IPad is a Pro 10.5 with IOS 12 Thanks Tom
  18. I am attempting to load .nef files into a stack then load them into the photo persona to edit each image individually as a layer. When i get them all loaded as layers, I cannot perform simple edits such as paint brush or erase. Even adding layer masks seems to do nothing. The only manipulation I can manage is the clone tool. I thought at first that it was because of having to develop the raw files but i have the same issue when loading images as .jpeg files in the stack. I've followed the steps layed out in your tutorial videos but they don't exactly conform to the technique i use for composite light painting images. Without diving too deep into my process, I stack the images then either paint or erase out my lighting as necessary. I'm a relatively new user coming, I must be missing something. The attached image is a flattened version of my raws. There's gold in there, I'm just trying to set it free, please help.
  19. Hello everyone. This is my first Affinity Forums post and I'm excited to be a part of the community... I'm wondering if there is an ETA as to when Affinity Photo (both Desktop and iPad versions) will support the RAW format for the newly announced Canon EOS R mirrorless camera? Yesterday's announcement from Canon has many people excited for the new R system (including me!) and I'd love to easily bring this new camera and lenses into my workflow with Affinity Photo. Also, will there be lens correction available for the new RF series lenses? These lenses look to be quite impressive from an optical quality perspective, but support for them would also be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any information you could provide on this.
  20. I need help! Everytime I do a batch job from RAW to JPG, Affinity saves all the new JPG's much darker than before! Can anyone help me to avoid that? Greetings
  21. Hi, Just found out about this software and wanted to know if Affinity Photo software has a tool like Photoshop's Camera Raw Filter that works on jpegs. much thanks Darren
  22. Hi I am Affinity Photo user v 1.6.5.135 and I have noticed that when importing a Fujifilm raw file (RAF), the original image size (document size) is altered when importing such file in Affinity. For example: an original fujifilm RAF file of 4896x3264px is automatically imported as 4934x3296px file size document. I still have to manually type the correct pixel size of the document when exporting the edited image. Though, no issues when importing fujifilm jpg file format. Please find attached screenshot. Thank you.
  23. Hi, I'm I novice photographer, and have recently purchased Affinity (Mac). I've noticed that when I'm using the Develop Persona my histogram does not match that of my Olympus Workspace app. Despite being satisfied that there are no clipped shadows or highlights (checked at time of taking image on the camera, OMD EM1 Mk2, and in Olympus Workspace), the Affinity histogram does not seem to correspond. I've downloaded Adobe DNG converter, and converted ORC files, but I'm still having the same issue. I've also noticed that when I develop an image, the histogram seems to improve (without me making any adjustments). Can anyone help please?
  24. I see from the list of supported cameras that the eos 70d and 80d are supported by the RAW editor and tried to download the free trial to check whether the 77d is supported but it says "trial expired". All of these Canon models use 14 bit files. Does anyone know whether the 77d is supported or whether I can get a working trial to test it?
  25. I'm making the transition from Lightroom to Affinity and I'm seeing really bad lag when trying to import RAW images taken with my Fujifilm X-H1. Like the whole computer stops responding, the CPU maxes out, and at one point I had to force reboot because I couldn't even kill the photo editor process. This is on a 2016 MBP with 8gb of RAM that runs Adobe products fine. I've tried both Affinity's RAW engine as well as the Apple one (X-H1 isn't listed under Affinity's for support, but it is supported by the Apple engine). Yes, I understand trying to import 2 dozen 20mp RAW images was probably a bad idea. But even importing a single image is taking over 1 minute on a class 10 SDcard connected over TB3. That's bananas. I don't see a lot of other people complaining about this so I'm just curious if it is normal? I've had issues with Fuji's RAW format causing problems in the past. I tried converting the RAF format to DNG first and that was marginally faster, but still really slow. I know this is a $50 program. I'm trying to temper my expectations. This is slooooow, though. EDIT: further investigation shows speeds are about twice as fast when pulling RAF files from the internal SSD rather than a SDcard, so Class 10 be damned, that's part of the bottleneck. It took 40 seconds to import/develop one image with the CPU maxed out the whole time. Still, that's probably within usable specs.
