  1. Personally, I have been having a hard time accepting AP as a replacement for PS. There is a performance issue and quality issue. I have attached a side-by-side example of a NEF image taken with my D750, both zoomed too 100% . The image were processed similarly, or as best I could. You can PS did a much better job, especially in regards to sharpeness. Has anyone else done this comparison? If so, what were your results?

    Curves Creating Glitched Images

    Hey there :) Whenever I try to use curves in Develop Persona, the images I work on get these glitches and I can't see what the image is going to look like. Let me take you through my process, maybe I am doing something wrong... I open a RAW file into Affinity Photo (Taken on Canon 700d) I do basic edits under 'basic,' such as contrast, saturation, shadows and highlight (etc.) I then move over into 'lens,' and load a basic preset that I have created in there. I then move over to 'details,' and load another preset, and adjust where necessary. Then, depending on what I want to achieve with the image, I move over into 'tones,' and mostly convert to black and white. But whenever I try to use curves, the same thing always happens (Check the images below, but specifically the shadows in the second image) (Please note photograph is for explanatory purposes and is not the most striking image) Thanks peoples :)
  3. Hi, I finally DLed the trial version of Affinity Photo yesterday to make sure it works for my images / gear. I have a couple of initial questions. 1) As I shoot only in RAW, am I always launched into the Develop persona? Do I make my adjustments there before moving to the Photo persona? A lot of instructional tutorials start at the Photo persona. Is that because people input JPG images? 2) The RAW image thumbnails are not visible when choosing photos to import. Is there a way around that? 3) I posted a forum question about my gear not being supported as yet (Canon 77D & Sigma 18-300mm lens) but see the following: As both are listed, does thaty mean that the s/w is able to pick them up & I'm able tomake adjustments based on them specifically? To have these listed under cameras & lenses in the future, what exactly do I have to do? 4) I have only just started playing with one photo & in the Develop persona again, under profiles, there's no camera profile, only output profile: What difference will that make to what I can do? |Is the camera profile that listed in the image ablove? - ie the same as the output profile? 5) There are so many tutorials out there but the beginner basic ones seem to relate to the photo persona. I did find one on the develop persona but it woudl be ever so helpful to have one, or a series even that dealt with beginners who shoot in RAW & need a basic workflow to start them off. Thanks so much. Julie.

    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?
  5. I am using AP 1.6.7 on a 5K iMac, current OS. I am working on images of 20000x15000 pixels at 72dpi and around a dozen smaller image layers averaging about 1000 px. The small images(SI) come from jpegs. Open the SI by dragging it onto AP icon. Opens fine, shows as a pixel image, develop time instantaneous. Drag the same image onto my large background. Shows as an image layer, rasterize to pixel. Select the layer and develop. Develop time goes to many seconds. As the number of layers build up, develop time for any individual layer increases, until it reaches many minutes to never. Select a SI layer, copy and create new image from clipboard. Develop time, with no background, is long. Export the SI to jpeg, reopen in AP and develop time is instant. It would appear that once an image is rasterized, develop times take much longer. There is more detail, but the increasing develop time is the main issue here. Otherwise, AP is working just great for me. I shoot everything HDR and AP tone mapping is a killer feature.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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 !
  16. 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?
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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?
  21. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. 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
  24. 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.
