  1. Months ago I bought a Canon Pixma Pro-100 and started using Affinity Designer. My artwork came off the printer looking nearly identical to what I saw on the screen. I was very, very excited. Now I don't know what has happened, but everything that comes off the printer looks like crap. The colors are WAY off. Basics: - Affinity Designer on HP Envy x360 m6 laptop running Windows 10 Home (using laptop monitor and 2nd aux monitor) - Canon Pixma Pro-100 using Canon Semi-Gloss paper The default color profile that was being used was sRGB IEC1966-2.1. I don't know much about color profiles and that was the selection that showed up when I started digging. I have switched my document AND printer profiles to Canon PRO-100 <SG> 1/2 Photo Paper Plus Semi and Adobe RGB (1988) with zero changes in print output results. Everything I have read talks about calibrating monitors... I admit that I have not done this, however I am not printing photos but creating artwork in Adobe Animate using the standard color palette. I feel that no matter how my monitor calibration is set when I select red #FF0000 (255/0/0) that it should still print red, right? So here is the strangest part of this. I downloaded a test image to print. On my monitor the red looks red, green looks green, etc. When I imported the jpeg into Affinity Designer to print I immediately saw that the colors were different. The red appears more pale, the bright green looks like a pastel, etc. Here is a screen shot... pay special attention to the green in the 9-box just to the right of the ship photo. ...so I printed the sample graphic using Affinity Designer and the Canon Semi-Gloss color profile and ended up with this ugly POS: Granted, the light in my office isn't great, but the baby's face looks almost purple and not skin-tone like on the monitor. Hmmm.... WTF? Had a thought... hey, what if I print this using Windows instead of Affinity Designer? Right clicked the jpeg on my desktop and let Windows do it's thing and ended up with this... The color of the baby is VERY close to what I see on the monitor when I printed from Windows. The colors in the 9-box are DRASTICALLY different Windows vs Affinity Designer. So I thought that I could output my designs to a PNG and just let Windows print it... but I tried it with my own artwork and the results came out identical to every other attempt. (scratching head) Hoping someone can help. I'm overwhelmed by Google results on this topic.
  2. Hi Affinity Team, I am having a few issues in importing my CR2 RAW files from my Canon 800D Camera. I am using the Apple (Core Image RAW) engine for RAW Files and it causes the images to display like the example picture attached below. I have never had this issue previously before importing images from my Canon 800D Camera and I think it has only started since updating my Macbook Pro to the latest macOS Mojave. I can strangely tho be able to import a Panorama or Stack using those same RAW files and the issue doesn't happen. I can also load images using the Serif Labs Engine with no issues also however it does remove most of the colours from the image for some reason and has so since the beginning on any RAW File. I am not sure if the Issue is Affinity Related or Apple Related and would love this to be fixed or find away to fix it. THANKS!!!
  3. Hello, I've recently purchased AF and it's my first serious image processing software so I'm still learning. However, one thing that has been driving me crazy from day 1 is that AF keeps distorting the RAW images (I use Canon EOS 6D, .cr2 raw files): not only it's visually distorted, it greatly looses in sharpness and I can't get the sharpness back. Here is an example image (files attached): one image (canon.jpeg) was converted from raw to jpeg in a free software with basic functionality (Digital Photo Professional) that comes with Canon cameras, I didn't do any modifications, just conversion. The second photo is the result of developing in AF. In AF I imported the raw file, turned off the lens corrections in Develop Assistant, Raw Engine is Serif Labs, the only one I seem to have, then pressed develop and then exported as jpeg. You can clearly see from the attached files how much is the AF result is of inferior quality: it's not sharp, the thin grass has turned into a strange mish-mash and the image is distorted ("bend" outwards?) I created a gif just to demonstrate it, the reddish image is the result from AF. How can I prevent AF from distorting the image like this? The experience of working with this software has been extremely frustrating so far as I seem to spend most of the time trying to fix the mess that AF makes of the image rather than doing the post-processing I want. I'd appreciate any help with this!
  4. Dear all, I've purchased Affinity at the end of December '17 in order to work on my RAW files from my Canon EOS 80D. Since the beginning of January '18, I'm not able to open the RAW files anymore... Affinity just crashes everytime I'm trying to open this kind of files. I'm using the latest Affinity release 1.6.4.104 and am working on Windows 10 Pro (version 1709) x64bits. Can someone help me? Thanks a lot. Regards, Slaz_Corp.
  5. 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.
  6. Hello everyone! I take the photos with Canon 6D, when I open the raw files with windows 10 photo app and Irfan view, everything goes well. the color is just fine. but when I open it with affinity photo, it shows more red and color bands between bright and dark parts. can anybody make an explanation? I attached 2 photos here, be aware that the model has some fat granule on the face this may cause discomfort.
  7. Hello everyone and thank you for your answers in advance. I have a huge issue with Affinity for mac: Using a Canon 1Dx mark ii camera, i capture RAW photos for the best quality, but for some reason Affinity doesn't read the white balance correctly. I usually play with a white balance to tune a nice look when possible, but this time it was a no go, because the product i photographed looks blue instead of purple! Please see attached 3 files: The original RAW, a JPG file exported via Apple Photo app (it easily detected and exported the correct white balance - Purple) and a screen shot of how it looks via Affinity Photo (Blue). Is there anything i'm missing or should i just look for a different software for pro work? Original File.CR2
  8. Hello, I have not yet purchased, nor even taken up the offer of the 10 day trial as I want to know for sure that my Canon 77D camera (have a Sigma 18-300mm lens too) is supported by Affinity for Windows. Neither the camera nor lens are listed as being supported but think it will actually work ok. Are there plans to add this kit into the Affinity supported gear? If so, is there a timeline / release date? What drawbacks will I face with a) the camera & b) the lens not being supported? I currently use Canon's DPP & having an unsupported lens is a real pain as I can't make any lens corrections. Thanks :-) Julie.
  9. Hello. I was looking for photoshop alternatives since Adobe refuses to sell lifetime license stuff until I found this. unfortunately, my camera AKA Canon 200D is not supported. My only available OS is windows so I can't rely on Apple core to take care of my RAW files. So I want to know when will my camera be added to the supported list and if I can use TIFF (8-bit, 16-bit or 32-bit float) format instead of RAW until my camera is added. Thanks in advance YAR Oracool
  10. I have an M50 and when I attempt to import to my iPad Pro via the lightening card reader, all I see are the video files. I have tried shooting in both the CR and CR3 Formats Any help here would be appreciated
  11. I have been trying to print to 4"x6" paper from the upper tray of my Canon iP7250 printer, but every time I close the printer preferences and reopen them, I find that they have reverted to A4 from the lower tray. I have tried enabling "shrink to printable", but that makes no difference. The printer still insists on printing from the lower tray. However I have been able to print successfully to 4"x6" paper from the Windows photo viewing app. I should add that I am using the Windows version of Photo. One thing I have noticed is that when I select 4"x6" in the Canon printer preferences, the print size in the Affinity Photo print dialogue changes to "custom", not 4"x6". How can I make Affinity Photo print onto 4"x6" paper?
  12. Hi, just purchased Affinity Photo and run it on IPad Pro 2017. Two problems: 1. when trying to open raw files from my Canon 40D via icloud photolibrary the apps exits. The photos are shown correctly in my apple photos app though 2. photo shares of my friends are shown in the import dialog together with photos from my own icloud photo library. However, when trying to open those shared photos the app continues loading them forever. At the same time i can open the fotos without any delay in the native ios photos app. Any fix? If not, i will have to recall the purchase, unfortunately
  13. Hi there, I've evaluating Affinity to work with the raw files from my Canon 70D. For a test I started from a very underexposed picture. With Affinity I followed the lineguides from this tutorial: https://vimeo.com/channels/affinityphoto/202715178 but the best I can get is a quite dull image. See the second attachment. On the other had I see that with a few settings in LightRoom, the software I'd like to leave, I'm albe to achieve better results. See the third image. I'm wondering: I'm missing any step, settings or configuration in order to improve my raw editing with Affinity? I've tried Apple raw engine and Serif but the results are similar. TIA.

    CR2-File from Canon 6D Mark II is pink

    I bought Affinity Photo because my Photoshop couldn't handle de CR2-files made with my new Canon 6D Mark II. But as soon as I open the CR2 in Affinity Photo, it becomes all pink. Why is that and how can I fix it? Thanks for your help.
  15. I use a Canon D6 Mark II which produces a .CR2 RAW file format. When importing using the Serif engine I was getting a purple haze, so using the Assistant Manager I changed the engine to Apple. I closed Affinity Photo and tried the same file again. Now CR2 files open as completely black. My camera is listed as a supported format on the Apple web site: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207972. I will attach an example file here. I am able to view this file in Photos on my iMac.

  17. Hi, I'm a happy owner of a Canon ImageProGraf PRO-1000 printer which comes with a nice Photoshop plugin for printing called "Print Studio Pro". In CS6 I access it from the FILE / AUTOMATE menu. In another post a link was given to the plug-ins you support and don't yet support (http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/) I would like to get Print Studio Pro added to the list as I've found it to be a great printing tool. Or, if someone can give me instructions how to get it working that would be great, but if not getting it "on the list" might be a good idea. I've attached a screen shot of the folder it creates in Applications on the Mac by default. Regards, PG
  18. Hi, I have tried several times to open CR2 files taken with my Canon 5D MK IV. Unfortunately 99% of the pictures I am opening are not aligned and seem to be corrupted when opening with the Affinity Photo 1.6.6 app on my MAC. The picture seems to be opening in different rectangular parts that are not aligned and making an overall pic... As the problem is difficult to explain I have attached a picture and hope anyone can help me to get this resolved. I can handle JPG or TIFF files without a problem. Looks like the pronblem also occures when opening DNG files. So has perhaps something to do with RAW material??? I have tried HDR stack with CR2 and DNG files but non are working and always result in I this corrupted pics. I hope somebody can help me with this one :-/ Regards Tom

    Serif RAW Engine Not Working

    Hi all, I recently downloaded & am testing the trial copy of Affinity Photo (v 1.6.6) and can't get it to auto correct for lens distortion when choosing the Serif RAW Engine in the Develop; Assistant, but it works fine with the Apple Engine selected. My camera is a: Canon G7 X (supported in the Lensfun database) I've reset the application and have completely uninstalled & reinstalled it too. It looks to be working fine with RAWs from other cameras. Original G7 X RAW attached. Any thoughts? Thanks! IMG_1484.CR2
  20. This topic explains one important problem with printing from Affinity Photo. It is highly important for a professional photographer. So... When printing on from Protoshop, it takes the printer settings into account. Just one example. Printing on almost any high quality fine art paper is made by default with the 35-mm fields from both sides. A printer driver knows this, and sets up the printing fields when choosing a fine art paper. The instance that below shows printing on Canon Pixma Pro-1 from Photoshop, and you will see the same with the use of any Prograf printer as well. That is once you choose "fit" option in the printing window of Photoshop, it automatically fits the picture to within the 35- mm margins set up by the printer driver (see the screenshot). Also, you can set up the printed size of the picture manually by setting up the millimeters/inches in the printing window. I mean that, if your fine art picture is shown in your catalogue is defined as, I say, 26.7 cm x 38.4 cm, you can merely type one of the sizes in the Photoshop window, thus the printer will make exact the same size in print. Also, the Photoshop printing window shows the output resolution that this picture will be printed after the scaling (see the screenshot below). I typed all these important issues by red on the screenshot. Not currently in Affinity Photo ... See the second, third, and fourth screens that below. First. Affinity Photo does not fit the image to within the printer driver pre-defined margins: once you choose "fit to printable", Affinity Photo merely extends the image to the paper size (without taking the printer setting of 35-mm margins into account). In other word, the current version of Affinity Photo does not take the printer driver settings into account. See the second screenshot, please. One can try to fit the image to within the printer predefined margins. Or one can try to fint the image to the desired size, I say, trying to type somewhere 26.7 cm x 38.4 cm manually. It is impossible in the current version of Affinity Photo ... See the screenshot below. Of course, one can try to choose the needed percentage of scaling. But one can guess the percentage producing the required size, I say, 25.7 cm or something like this. I emphasized this issue by red and explained this problem by white words on the screenshot. Choosing percentage instead of exact size of the printed image is suitable to amateur person printing travel pictures rather than a professional photographer (who needs to get exact size of printed image, that is strongly required for sale options). So forth, the print resolution. In Photoshop printing window (see the first screenshot), the print resolution depends on the scale percentage. So, the protograopher can easy control the printing quality: aha... the resolution became lesser than 300 ppi... so we should set up a lesser size of the image. Not in the current version of Affinity Photo (see the screenshot that below). By choosing the option "rasterization" we see a resolution that does not change with the scaling of the image... That is, you can set up any resolution independent from the true output resolution of the scaled image. This is a puzzle and, if it is true then unacceptable for a professional fine art photographer (fine art images should only be printed with the true scaled resolution that gives the best high quality result on print). Conclusion. I purchased Affinity Photo because my wishes to replace my Photoshop CS6 (because I disilke Adobe subscription while Affinity Photo provides perpetual license). I also sincere believe in the Affinity Photo project as a Photoshop replacement. But now, with the above issues of the printing options (and also still incompatibility with DxO FilmPack that I reported recently), I still use, enforcedly, Photoshop. I believe that the Affinity Photo team likes to attract professional photographers (not only amateurs). In such case, the above issues should be improved somehow in the future releases of Affinity Photo. Thank you for your time! (I hope you read my report upto the end.)
  21. Good morning for all I have a Nikon d90 and Canon powershot g7x Mark II, in a few month I buy Nikon d7500. I would like to know when the powershot canon g7x Mark II and the nikon D7500 will be supported the raw develop functions......
  22. Affinity seems to be assuming that my Canon RAW (EOS M) files have a colour space of sRGB, despite the fact that they are really in Adobe RGB. The reason I say this is that if I enable colour space conversion warnings, and set my working space to Adobe RGB, it does warn me that it is converting from sRGB to Adobe RGB. Does affinity support colour spaces other than sRGB in RAW files? If not, is there a way I can assign the correct space manually in the Develop persona? (I can't seem to find a way to do this)
  23. Hi, I have a 9.7” iPad Pro with iOS 11.01 and the latest version of Affinity Photo (1.6.5.61). I have a Canon 70D camera. I saved some RAW files to google Drive. I can’t “Import From Cloud” the CR2 files as they are greyed out. If I go to the Drive app and select “Open In”, I can choose Affinity Photo as an option, but absolutely nothing happens when I do this. Am I missing a step? Are RAWs from my camera not supported? Is there anything else that I can do? My hope was that I could use my iPad and Affinity for post work when I travel and avoid lugging a laptop, but I’m wondering if I may have made a mistake. Any advice and suggestions are greatly appreciated
  24. Does the software support the Canon EOS M5 cr2 raw format? If not when will this happen? I would like to purchase it if/when it does.
