  1. I import a raw file and it will open in the Develop Persona. The History panel records the changes. Satisfied, (I click Develop and the image now opens in the Photo Persona. I make a few changes but want to return to the Develop Persona to make changes. The History of previous changes are gone. Every is reset as though it is a brand new image and the changes I made earlier are set in stone. I cannot save with history, nor is there a sidecar file with the recorded settings. Am I missing something?
  2. 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
  3. Archive.zip 2017 033 - 18.tif only opens in "Develop persona, whereas 2017 033 - 19.tif opens as expected.
  4. Hello there, We have moved almost all our photo editing into Affinity Photo (on beta 1.7.0.350 at the moment). Before that, we used other software such as Lightroom, Photoshop, Darktable and the Gimp. We were also lucky to grab a copy of the Workbook before it went temporarily out of print a month or two ago. While on Lightroom, a feature that we got so used to was the "Solo Mode". This feature automatically collapses all panels except the working panel, reducing a lot of unnecessary clutter, and making navigation easier. We can't seem to do something similar on Affinity Photo's develop mode, even manually collapse a panel without disabling it. After getting used to the clutter-free editing with the Solo Mode, living without it gets so annoying, and I'm sure we are not alone. It would be a much more pleasant editing experience if something similar can be implemented as an option. Thanks a lot, and please keep up the good work!
  5. There is a problem with the operation of the tool. When I use the brush this is applied discontinuously and not uniformly on the image.
  6. I everyone and I Affinity Support Team, I just bought a new Fujifilm XT-100. I can't open the RAF file in Affinity Photo (latest release for MacOs 1.6.7). I had no issues using my old Nikon D3200. No way, I can see only a white vertical stripe. No images. What's the problem? Thank you
  7. Here's something that's confusing me. Is it a bug? Open a raw image (mine is .arw from Sony A7R2, 42mpx sensor, 40m compressed raw) Click on Develop. When you get to Photo persona, image is a lot 'whiter' Histogram has shifted. Illustrated in attached video, including comparison with AP V1.6, where 'whitening' doesn't happen but histogram shift does. Yes, I know there's a blue spike at the right of the RAW histogram. I decreased exposure to bring this in. Same effect on Develop. It also happens with other images. What's happening here? Any bugs in the woodwork? (In experimenting, turning Gamma (in Levels) up to 2 improves/restores things, as does pulling Curves mid-point down).
  8. Hey folks, another time got some problems while developing RAW files from my Panasonic GX80. Weil loading the *.rw2 file to AP sometimes (not ever) something really weird is happening. Look at the landscape orientation photo in the screenshot. It is split in the middle vertical line and the left part is duplicated to the right side... Sound really crazy and it is... Same thing happens with the portrait oriented photo ... In this case the lower half is multiplied to the upper part of the pic. (see screenshot attached with the comparison opening the same file with MacOS Preview). Actually I'm using AP 1.6.6 on a MacBook with macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 Hope somebody can give me hand solving this issue If someone needs one of the raws to test just let me know!
  9. Hi If I develop a raw file in the develop persona including tonal, black and white points, shadows and highlights and sharpening, etc.. then go to the photo persona. Do you then do more adjustments to the same or should I leave things as they are (newbie!) Also, if I have sharpened in Develop, do I sharpen again for print? Or is it just down to personal choice. Just looking for some general guidelines I guess! Thanks....
  10. Hi, Newbie question here. I'm using the Lens correction in the Develop persona, for a wide angle lens. With the default settings, the corners gets cropped. I would like to retain the corners, even if it means missing pixels in the center of the edges due to the distortion. Where can I disable the automatic cropping? Cheers, Hendrik
  11. Hi, I'm trying to draw on a photo. I'm sure there are a dozen ways to do this but the Overlay Paint Tool in the Develop module seems to be one. How do I use it? I can draw ok with the tool but this creates an Overlay layer under the Master layer. I can't change the opacity of the master layer so the drawing is only visible when I select that Overlay. I can't see any way to move the layers or to flatten the layers so my brush strokes are invisible under a 100% opacity master layer and vanish as soon as I move to the Photo persona. Help! Thanks, John
  12. Love using the overlay grandient tool in develop mode. But why can't I adjust clarity inside the selected area?
  13. I am getting this problem when I try to aply red eye in the develop persona. It doesn't always happen but it almost seems to be deleting part of the image as it shows the checker pattern.
  14. 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.
  15. Does anyone know of any issues being reported when using Affinity Photo's Extensions within Apple Photos? I've just started to use Affinity within Photos for quick edits, and have found a couple of issues that make it unreliable: Affinity Retouch: Loupe slider controls do not appear immediately and start as a purple drop down box. the sliders ultimately appear but disappear most times. The Loupe often does not appear and instead the mouse pointer remains, (functioning as the selected tool, i.e. dodge or burn). The Loupe can be forced to appear by zooming in and out, but often disappears as soon as the mouse is moved to click on a spot. Affinity Develop: Intermittently opens with a black screen displaying the Affinity logo, and will not display the current photo. Equipment: Computer: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), 16GB RAM, Solid state drive. OS: macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6 Photos: Version 3.0 (3291.13.210) Affinity: Ver 1.6.7 No Other Apps running. MacBook passes all tests. No other known issues with the MacBook
  16. I posted about this here but didn't get an official response so figured I should report it as a bug directly. When I open a CR2 raw file, the histogram appears "squished" to the left side with a bunch of seemingly unused space on the right side. If I click the develop button to move into the photo persona (without making any changes to the image at all), the histogram is more evenly distributed in a way that matches what I expect. I've tried with the develop assistant set to both 16 and 32 bit modes and the results are the same. This happens only in the desktop version of Affinity Photo (I'm using version 1.6.7 on macOS 10.14). The histogram in develop mode behaves as I would expect in the latest iPad version. The develop persona is essentially useless because of this issue, to the point that I'm having to do my raw development on the iPad even when I'd prefer to use the desktop. Attached are example histograms from the develop and photo personas, following the flow I described in my second paragraph.
  17. Hi I'm moving over to Affinity from Photoshop. One feature of PS [in ACR] is the ability to adjust saturation & luminence separately for each individual colour [red /orange / yellow/ purple etc]. This seems to be missing from Develop persona in Affinity. The only way of approaching it seems to be with Curves [ only for RGB & therefore well near impossible for other tones] or by altering white balance [which is a bit of a blunt instrument]. You can do it to a certain extent with selective colour & HSL in Photo persona, but even here you are only adjusting colour bias, not luminence, & in any case working on the Raw file creates better results. Have I misssed something, please?
  18. I am used to adjusting individual colours, both saturation & luminence in Adobe Camera Raw. Affinity's Develop mode does not seem to provide this. Global saturation & hue are there, but no adjustment for individual colours. Have I missed something?
  19. I don't have time to search entire forums or the interwebs to see if someone else has ever suggested this feedback before. So I offer my apologies if my suggestions have already been covered. 1) Please can you provide a feedback function WITHIN the application it self. It's incredibly frustrating to have to use out dated methods of signing up to god-awful web-forums which just leads to nonconstructive replies of un-thought out opinions and arguments. It also allows you to correctly link feedback (and abuse) to the software license of the user and even categorise the feedback so you can easily see which areas are causing most concern to the user base. 2) Please can you fix the mouse icon when painting in masks in the develop mode. The standard OS mouse icon does not feel accurate to paint with. Also a nice to improve if possible: Painting often feels sluggish to see the red tint forming. If there is a way to make this feel more responsive without upgrading an existing 32GB RAM I7 processor machine, that would be lovely please. 3) Cropping in Develop mode is missing an "ok" or "finished" button. It's frustrating to be sitting back with my tablet, controlling everything then having reach over to the keyboard which I moved to one side, just to hit <enter>. I don't want to map the enter key to my tablet device as it's never used for anything else! if you simply put a button in the UI it will mean I can just move the mouse there and click! perhaps I've missed a trick that does what I want, but then that would mean it's not obvious and intuitive to the user. 4) Please update the flash function for uploading files on this forum. Who runs flash in 2017? Browsers auto block flash from running by default because it's nasty. 5) More of a question then a suggestion, but is there a way to rename the overlays in the Overlays tab in Develop mode? I have 3 gradient overlays, all with the same name! that's very confusing to simple minds like myself. 6) Although I generally hope you spend more time fine tuning what you have already developed, instead of just rushing out new features, it would be nice if there was an in-application function for browsing image files, with a nice big preview of the image and EXIF data, which you can then double click to open it in the develop mode. I don't think anyone wants all this "importing" and cataloguing rubbish which is very slow. But browsing files within Affinity with a UI that suits photographers that windows/macOS don't offer, would be a great win. Thanks for your time.
  20. I have seen that when i use detail refinement in Raw (see image) and go to develop, then the image is losing the detail setting i give in. This is under windows 10 and version 1.6.5.xxx maby I doing something wrong?
  21. 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?
  22. 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 :)
  23. 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?
  25. 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.
