  1. Hallo allerseits.. Habe gerade gesehen, dass es hier im Forum auch Deutsch sprechende/schreibende kompetente Leute gibt; so kann ich mir evtl die Mühe sparen mein 'Problemchen' in Englisch zu beschreiben. Für die webseite meines Turnvereines verwende ich Logos/Piktogramme im png-Format die frei verfügbar sind. Allerdings passt das angebotene Rot nicht so recht zu unserer Corporate Identity An einem habe ich es per Makro recht gut hingekriegt. (Rottöne ausgewählt - angepasst - deselektiert- neu abgespeichert - fein) Gibt es eine Möglichkeit, die etwa 100 Icons in einem Rutsch -per Batch- umzufärben, ohne jede einzeln zu öffnen? Für Eure Hilfe schon jetzt vielen Dank Liebe Grüsse aus dem Rheingau adus
  2. Hello all, I have a lot of images to process and I would like to do if there is a way to open them, select specific layers and export them? Thank you!!!
  3. Currently running: Affinity Photo (Windows - Version 1.6.2) Issue: The "Auto Levels" adjustment when ran through the batch system (via a simple recorded macro, which is just "Auto Levels") doesn't produce the same results as an interactive "Auto Levels" adjustment. I'll try and upload an example later, has anyone else experienced the same issue or am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
  4. I've noticed this feature being asked about in other threads and wanted to share my desire for batch merging to HDR in Affinity Photo. As someone who does a lot of HDRI work I've gone through my fair share of different software searching for the best results (Photomatix, HDR Expose, Dynamic Photo HDR along with pano stacking with Autopano Giga and PTGui etc). After purchasing Affinity Photo I've found that in most if not all cases it's HDR merging has the best automatic ghost removal and processing of any app I've used, yet it's the only one without some sort of batch tools for multiple stacks. Currently I am manually sorting through 500+ separate stacks for a project I'm working on and would greatly appreciate (as well as pay for) a means of running these through a script to automate it all.
  5. Hi there I don't own Affinity Photo but considering purchasing. Simple question really, is it possible to create a HDR merge macro and then apply it to a batch process?
  6. Affinity looks good and pretty intuitive to use. What I am missing is a batch processor. My primary photo targets are birds; things that move pretty fast at times. So I usually shoot photos in bursts - same light situation, same settings etc, up to 20 images. To allow me to select the one photo I like, I want to process all of them the same, so applying a macro/batch processing them. The outcome of the batch processing should deliver good results. This is the one feature photoshop has ahead of all other photo processing software - it does good batch processing. I have tested other software (Nikon firmware, Corel, Gimp etc.) and they have all delivered unsatisfactory results.
  7. Hello, I recently created a batch job using a macro. Unfortunately I forgot to uncheck the .afphoto file option after checking the .png file option. When I found out I wanted to stop the job but I did not find any way to do so. Since the job was to alter 34 images it took unnecessarily long to export to two file types. It would be very useful to be able to abort/stop a job. Please add that function. Greetings Matthias
  8. Affinity Photo 1.6.6 macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 After adding a bunch of images of the same photo session to a batch job in order to resize them, Affinity Photo corrupts/destroys some images by adding solid white almost throughout the whole image, while other images are OK. Attached is an archive containing the same 4 images - before and after a batch resize. The 2 get corrupted every time after a batch job, while the other 2 are OK. Affinity Batch
  9. I'm sure this is a simple task, Sorry to bother...I'm just getting started with Affinity, moving from CSS5. I have several photos loaded, have edited. I want to automate saving and closing the files. Seems I need to export. I tried creating a batch, but it seems as opposed to PS, batches apparently do not work on already loaded and edited photos (at least not that I can tell). So I tried creating a macro, but it said a macro cannot export. Any suggestions?
  10. Hi, I would like to know if there is a possibility tweak multiple RAW images with a workflow similar to the one offered by Canon's Digital Photo Professional or Lightroom. I know it is not generally ok to mention competing solutions, but this is the simplest way of explaining. So, what I want to do is the following: import a batch of photos in the Develop Module, create a recipe for one photo, copy -> paste it to al photos in the batch, and after those general adjustments are done go to each photo and make some finer adjustments, then export the files (as JPG or whatever format I want to use later maybe for some more post processing). Importing and exporting file by file takes a lot of time, while importing a batch of RAWs and only applying the same recipe to all does not allow fine tuning them separately. This workflow, described above, saves a lot of time and I cannot figure out how it can be done using the Affinity software. Basically this is the only thing that keeps me from switching as of now. Thanks in advance! P.S. I know some may say that Affinity is not an alternative to other packages so that one would switch, but I really don't wanna go through multiple things retouch a photo. This is just a hobby for me.
  11. 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
  12. On a couple of occasions I did a batch job on my RAW files to jpg and tiff. Lately every single batch job is overexposed. I'm trying to do a milky way time-lapse and star trails and every image is blown out. Not only that, when I compare the before and after batch image, I notice that there is a warping of the image, too. I did not change any other settings when processing my Nikon RAW images. Attached are sample images of the before and after. Also, I'm attaching a screen shot of the settings I've used for each batch job. Thanks! John
  13. I'm using macros and a batch job to add branding to large sets of photos varying size and aspect ratio. It should be pretty straightforward - I'm just placing two external files into the image, and aligning one the the bottom left corner and one to the bottom right, then letting the batch save out jpegs as new copies. There's no resizing of either the placed files or the final copy going on. Problem is, while it works perfectly on the images that are the same aspect ratio as the image that I created that macro on, the placed branding files are being distorted on any images that are a different aspect ratio (in this case, portrait or panoramic). If I repeat the exact same steps manually in the portrait image, it places the branding files in their correct size and aspect. The macro should surely just do exactly the same job automatically, but it appears that it is somehow interpreting the aspect of the files it places in, based on the relative aspects of the file the macro was recorded in and the file it is being performed on. The error is occurring in the macro, rather than the batch process. It still happens when I run the macro manually on a single image, without it be part of a batch. Am I missing something, or is this a bug? It's annoying, because this is the feature that I need working to finally ditch my PS sub! I am including some sample images showing the results of the macro on different sized images, and there's a video showing the process of recording and applying the macro here:
  14. Hi ! Recently I purchased Affinity Photo and it's my first post here I fall in love affinity Photo features, workflow and monthly fees free concept, but some bugs are really dissapointing. Considering to switch from adobe products to Affinity Photo, because it completely covers my needs. Really wish success to you, guys, and know how important feedbacks is, so there is one. Please forgive me, if I created theme in a wrong forum tree. I'm working in IT, my system is fast and clean, so please don't advise to turn off antivirus or smth. like that I already tried to tweak my machine perfomance, Affinity Photo perfomance and so on, but nothing helps. Have zero speed issues with Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop in described scenarios. They fast and furious My laptop specs: ASUS ZenBook UX330UA: Intel Core i5 6200U 2300 MHz / 13.3" / 3200x1800 / 8Gb RAM / 256Gb SSD / Intel HD Graphics 520 / Win 10 Pro Affinity Photo version: Affinity Photo BETA version: What I found during my work: 1) Tone Mapping persona is very slow. I'm processing 16MB 6114x4076 JPEG files and it takes about 1 minute to finish initial processing when swithcing to Tone Mapping Persona. Beta version, maybe, little bit faster. Not very noticable. 2) I created my own tone mapping preset and save it in my own folder in Tone Mapping Persona presets. After that, I created macros with one tone mapping action (which uses my preset) and save it in Affinity Photo library. Then, I created one batch job with 5 files and launched it - all my files were processed and placed into output folder correctly. Then, I closed Affinity Photo, relaunched it, and repeat my batch job in the same way. Photos were processed, BUT they were tone mapped by first default preset, not with my own. I tried to repeat and this hapened again. I recreated macros and found that it works fine. Closed Affinity Photo agian, relaunched it, and found that macros didn't work correctly again. Issue is reproduced not only with bacth mode. After relaunching Affinity Photo simple macros calling from library causes the same effect. 3) Tone Mapping macros batch processing is extremely SLOOOW!! IT takes about 3 minutes to process each photo by this way. More than, one photo processing time increasing with increasing of total photo number in batch. More photos, more time need for one photo processing. More than, Parallel processing increasing one photo processing time to about TEN minutes! Maybe, there is another way to tone mapping batch of photos, but I didn't find it. 4) I tried to do such macros batch job in Affinity Photo Beta. It cann't create tone mapping macros at all, failing with error. Macros Import from stable Affinity Photo version doesn't help. After such import Beta version cann't be launched, it fails during startup with error. 5) Time to time I'm catching another interesting bug: Studio refuses drag&drop photo import from folder. Studio reset helps. 6) Clarity in develop persona creates freaky white poster objects border effects on high meanings; 7) Develop Persona shadow recovery seems to be broken. It only adding grey tint to shadows, instead of pulling it. 8) Why after applying Develop Persona processing I can't return to it back again? History isn't saved. 9) 2 stops exposure Develop Persona tuning isn't enough. Need about 5 stops. 10) Develop Persona brushes and filters masks are dissapear after options tuning and cann't be called back again. Need to recreate filter/brush again. 11) Batch job editor doesn't remember previous settings
  15. Hallo everyone, I a not quite sure, theres a way to do this in affinity. I got a folder with several pdf´s, that where produced from autocad, and that have to be composed in affinity Photo to make a much more pleasent floor plan. The several pdf´s where Plotted from autocad, untill now get placed one after the other to the center of a Document, that refers in size to the pdf´s that of course have all the same size, and gets placed in the middle of the document using a dp1 of 300... due to the nature of the embedded pdf´ files i import, i do aply to each of them a layer effect "color overlay" (so the architects can care about the color much more precise inside of affinity photo) , and also due to the problems of the embedded vektors of the pdf´s, i aply the layer effect "outline", in the exakt same color of the color overlay i used before. This way the thin and uggly lines of the used colored triangles of the fillings dissapear for the embedded pdfs. now i do this one after the other with each of the pdf´s the architects wrote to one folder , untill every pdf is sitting on top of the other , using the layereffects and they are all centered to the middle of the document (which has the size of the first opend pdf and so gets the exact szise of the needed pdfs) .. This is the first step... 1. Question: Is there a way to record in a macro to open, place to the documents center , all needed pdf´s of one folder, and applay the layer efffects i have been talking about ? 2: Question: As usual the Architectural plans change very often in a competition untill you get your final result.. this takes much much time .... so.. is there a way, to produce a macro of all the now embedded pdfs, and tell affinity, to replace them by the pdf´s in a selected folder, and replace each pdf with the now actualised pdf´s, with their corresponding names ? and if there isn´t any, go on to the next embedded pdf, and look if there existes one with the corrresponding name, untill all layer with pdf´s are actualised with the new pdfs´s. and this by remaining all the layereffects, you put on your embedded pdf´s ? this would streamline the import and redoing process of my documents very very much and would spare dozenz of hours of work in an architectural workflow process.. here´s a screenshot of an example (not finished plan).. greetings Tom..
  16. 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
  17. On my last trip I shot a lot of HDR pictures. It's pretty tedious to merge each of them one after the other. Is there a way to do this automatically for a large number HDR merges?
  18. 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 I would love to process a 720 (3 exposure = 240 blended frames) HDR Raw Sequence and not having to manually edit each frame!
  19. batch jobs can only save afphoto, jpg, png, tiff, exr normal File>export allows more options though e.g. pdf it just happened that I had to batch convert a bunch of svg which AP opened well but without a batch option it was not practical please make batch jobs more full featured cheers (and enable parallel export)
  20. Hi AP folk, I have had AP since it's release but am just now starting to phase out my use of PS CS5 and replace it with AP as my main photo software. One of the functions I am having difficulty with though is placing a signature on my photos in a batch process using a macro. I have a macro that downsizes, then runs a high pass sharpening filter and I then want to add a signature in the bottom right of the photo. I read in a forum somewhere that AP doesn't allow a text layer to be added in a macro ( I have had the error message when trying to do it it) so I created a brush that is my signature. The brush works when I use it recording the macro but when I run the macro on a batch of photos it doesn't place the signature on the photo. What have I done wrong ? Is it possible to put a signature/text on photos as part of a macro to batch process ? Regards Ian Colley
  21. I have about 200 documents that are different sizes. Some are vertical and some are horizontal. I need to resize each of them at the same percentage. I tried creating a macro to use with batch job, but after I enter 25%, it changes to pixels. I also tried doing a batch job without a macro by entering 25% in width and height, but it changes every document to 25 pixels. How can I do this without changing every document separately??
  22. Hello, I am using batch job to apply a basic grading to my Raw images and export them as Jpeg. This basically works quite good except for the fact that the grading looks quite different to what I get when I open the image manually, develop it and apply the macro then. But this is another topic. My bigger problem is, that portrait format images are always cropped to a landscape image. That means I get a landscape image where the upper part of my originally portrait image is cut off and in the right part of the image is just black (see attachment). Am I doing something wrong? I am using a Nikon D610 which is auto rotating the photos like almost every other digital camera. Thank you! Seeb
  23. I click on batch and the app crashes. The dialogue doesn't even open anymore. Log attached. AP crash log
  24. I primarily do astro timelapse photography. One of my issues is hot pixels (especially in the summer). I need a way, and I'm thinking batch, where I can record the removal of hot pixels to RAW images and then apply across the other hundreds of images. Is this possible? I'm not a Ps user and thought Affinity would be a more logical platform to try instead of Ps. Thanks
  25. When doing batch resizing the method seems to be nearest neighbour regardless of the method chosen. I tried to get round this using a macro, but it would also seem resizing with a macro uses nearest neighbour regardless of method selected also. Chris
