  1. Hi all, Is it possible to rotate a photo using the Develop extension in Apple’s Photos.app? I imported a number of RAW+JPEGs from my Fuji X-T20 to Photos.app, which imported the orientation correctly. But when I go to the Develop extension they revert to sensor orientation, and I can’t find a way to rotate them in the Develop extension. It’s kind of distracting to adjust highlights and shadows on a 90º-rotated subject.
  2. Ehy guys, yesterday I needed and probably will need in the future the ability to rotate RAW images in develop persona since Windows itself isn't able to do it. Rotating via the crop tool context toolbar is very difficult so it'd be nice to have the facility I've written above.
  3. Hi guys, I have taken a number of time-lapse images in Sony Raw and want to develop them. I can't see a way to do this in a batch. Is this correct? Leigh
  4. When editing an image in Develop Persona the Crop tool does not offer an accept/reject (tick/x) option. How do I 'initiate' the crop while remaining in Develop persona? Solved. After setting up a crop how do I cancel it?
  5. Hello ! My normal develop persona work flow for the Mac desktop version of Affinity Photo is to use the selection brush as a new later and "snap to edges" for a clean selection. Ie if I shoot backlit portraits I will select the subject in a new layer in the develop persona and work on that alone without touching the background. For the life of me, I cannot find an option to snap to edges for the selection brush in the iPad version of Photo. Is this not an option?

    Develop command continual loop

    Twice this morning - second time after machine reboot and re-launching the app - after making standard adjustments in Develop persona, I clicked the Develop command button. Normally the progress indicator will cycle through four or five iterations before moving to the Photo persona, but on these two occasions the develop progress dialog continued to loop and never developed the image. The app was effectively frozen and the only way out was to use Task Manager to kill the instance. Lord, I hate random occurrences - so difficult to troubleshoot.
  7. I have recently purchased affinity photo. Whenever i open a raw image and then develop it so i can edit the image in photo persona, the image becomes noticeably pixelated. Any help? Thanks, Zach
  8. Hello, I am trying the Windows free trial. I have been loading RAW files and trying to process them. When I adjust the Shadows and Highlights my photo gets real muddy. Photo 1 is right out of the camera Photo 2 is after adjusting only the Shadows and Highlights. The muddiness begins as soon as I adjust the Highlights down. I tried the same photo in ON1 Photo Raw 2018 with just adjusting the same and the photo is clear and sharp. I really want to use Affinity but comparing my results with other apps is not convincing me. Your help would be appreciated.
  9. Recent threads such as this one by @Gregory St. Laurent have commented on the default image when a raw is loaded into the Develop Persona being too dark (or too light or ...) as compared with other programs. My experience, with my rather old Sony A55 camera, is that the default image in the Develop Persona is fine in 95% of the time, and that any tweaking needed is done in the Photo Persona. The odd 5% are those images taken under odd lighting conditions, but even with these, I will typically bracket the shots and merge in HDR. I would be interested to hear from other uses of Sony cameras (old and new). Have you had these problems that are described elsewhere? If not, then it would seem that the default develop algorithm for ARW files is closer to what is expected as compared with CR2 or NEF files. John
  10. Hello everyone ! I just wanted to start a new thread with some creativity First, I'm an amateur photograph and by no way I am gifted at all the professional photo editing; while there are tons of tutorials in affinity photo, I can't seem to be able to have "the best result" ouf of my pictures. That's why I decided to give the community a try by sharing some of my RAW images and what I could do with them on my own. Then, you guys could try and edit the image with your own ideas and creativity. I think it would allow beginner people like me to have other thoughts and ideas during the post process operation. The rules are simple : - Only use Affinity Photo - Try and avoid using external plugins (Nik's collection for example, or specify when used) - Upload your own results in good quality (download file is much appreciated) - If you want the community to pimp your image, the RAW you submit must be free of use (non commercial, for training only, etc) - If you want, detail the process of operations (curves used, shadows, filters, etc...) - Have fun, and open mind in critics ! Not everybody is using professional gear So I'm gonna start with a couple of samples : Copenhagen Picture 1 : Link to RAW file And my edit (I want to create a wallpaper for my phone but I'm not happy of my result) : Copenhagen Picture 2 : RAW File link My edit : India - Hyderabad Link to RAW file My edit : Thanks, and happy editing !
  11. Lets say I want to develop 5 RAW files. They require all the same develop settings like white balance, curve adjustment, pre sharpening and lens corrections, to mention just a few. Is there an easy way or do I have to make 4 separate presets in the Basic, Tones, Detail and Lens tab?
  12. Hi! I have some presets defined, but I found, that changing from one preset to another, changes picture, but not all values in Affinity Photo (some changes, but i.e. color balance not). It can be misleading. Is that how presets works? Any changes in next versions?
  13. I am after any pointers you have actauled used to open RAW images as you would in Photoshop (This is referred to as Camera RAW - I think) Basicaly i edited any images at this stage in Photoshop with all my RAW images. So I not asking how can you import or open a RAW pic in AP on a ipad. But as AP does not have this feature yet ? How do you find a work around, i like answers to be from people who have actual found work around, rather than here a 10 mins video which might help. So personal experiences appreciated welcome Rob

    RAW Histogram

    Before a RAW is developed, I get one histogram displayed. After developing it, I get a totally different histogram displayed. Can this really be true?
  15. In the development persona all sorts of adjustments can be applied to a picture, like contrast, clarity, saturation, etc. When using the Overlay paint tool, these adjustments can be applied locally to a chosen part of the picture. However, when using the Overlay paint tool the Clarity adjustment can not be engaged anymore, all other adjustments can. I tried to catch it in the video below. Am I doing something wrong? Is this intentional, or is it a bug? E46337B5-AE5B-4D98-975E-CBBCEA472E17.MOV
  16. Ive noticed recently that when cropping in Photo Persona, in order to exit the crop tool one has to choose the Apply button, otherwise the crop dosnt take place. But when editing a raw image in Develop Persona, there is no 'Apply' button and all one needs to do is to choose another tool, such as the 'Move' tool, and the crop is finalised. Is this just one of those things that weren't planned well and I just have to get used to, or is there some rational behind this?
  17. When developing a RAW (NEF) file in Photo, having an EV value above 2 and "Apply exposure bias as initial state" set in the develop assistant, the exposure slider and text-box do not reflect the exposure bias applied by Photo. In this (extreme) case the EV value set in camera and applied by develop assistant was +5 but the exposure slider and textbox show a maximum value of +2. Preferred fix is to expand the range of the exposure slider, alternatively (as expanding the range could make exposure adjustments by slider too coarse) allow setting higher exposure values via the textbox and spinners/steppers.
  18. Loving Affinity so far! A quirk I can't find any info on in this forum relates to the appearance of the brush head when using the Surface Pen. (I'm on a Windows 10 Surface Studio.) When selecting the overlay tool, my mouse's cursor will display the brush as I manipulate it around the file; when using the Pen it shows nothing -- though the tool itself still paints on the image. Any ideas? Thanks!
  19. I'd like to suggest the curves sub panel under Tones in the Develop Persona have the input / output values displayed for given points. In addition, I'd like this panel to include an 'editor' feature, whereby the option of entering the numerical values for each point on the curve. It would also be appreciated if the x and y axis (0-255) could be delimitated in 10ths like Photoshop. Either replacing quarter tones, or, in addition to the quarter tones. :) Nick
  20. Hi, i'm new to these forums and the Affinity suite, please forgive me if this has been brought up before, a cursory search did not return relevant posts for me. I'm looking for a way to synchronise presets in the develop persona between computers and Affinity Photo and Affinity Photo Beta. There seems to be no UI for this, but perhaps these presets can be synchronised between preference storage, where are the develop presets stored on macOS?

    Develop Persona rotate bug

    If you rotate an image in develop persona, then when you select develop, only 2/3 of the photo survives. This must be a bug? IOS 11.2.5, Affinity 1.6.5.61.
  22. Quick question - I have just started to using Panasonic RW2 files in AP from a GH5. It seems a lot harder to get a pleasing result than with the Nikon raws I've used in the past. The default treatment is very flat, undersaturated but I'm having trouble producing a pleasing developed image. (see attached image for example) Ramping up the saturation only helps marginally, curves adjustments too. Does anyone have a good workflow for GH5 image processing they have established? Many thanks.
  23. Hi, I am having trouble with opening RAW files. It seems to have happened after the programme crashed last night (I didn't bother to restart it as it was past my bedtime) For some reason today, when I try to open a raw file, I am getting a weird purple hue. It seems to be taking a lot longer to open them too. I know it's not the files as they are opening ok in both Cannon DPP4 and Faststone. I have been using Affinity Photo for months now and this is the first issue I have had with it. Attaching a quick set of screen shots so you can see what I mean.
  24. Hi, I would like to be able to limit the effect of the Detail Refinement feature in Develop persona to relevant edges to avoid emphasizing noise in smooth areas. Please add option of edge detection with a slider to control edge strength in masking the sharpening effect. I understand something similar can be achieved in Photo persona with result of Detect Edges filter used as mask, but it requires Developing the image first (destructive step), and also the lots of steps required are cumbersome for a standard requirement against sharpening to avoid the noise.
