  1. Hi, I have tried to make an HDR image from 3 equirectangular images ( 360x180 panorama - stitched from AutoPano ). Problem: I got a line on the final image due to a difference between the pixels from the left and right sides. Is there a way to tell Affinity that the image is a 360 pano, in ordre to force the pixels from left and right sides to share the same values? - for example, the same way Photomatix has a checkbox... - The funny thing, is that issue does not show up always... Any suggestion? Thank you.
  2. HI All, I have already seen the thread - But it does not seem to help me. I am using 1.7.2.471 version of Affinity and Windows 10 (Surface Book First Version). And the second copy is how it looks in default Windows Photos Raw viewer. Please help me what is wrong with this as, I used a batch processing on my RAW photos and they seem to look completely different if I try to do it one photo at a time. Thanks
  3. After using the HDR function on a single image, I'm unable to export the image as it looks on my screen. What gets exported is a washed-out version of the image. I've tried this with several different images, and I even went back to the previous version of AP. I watched the tutorial videos on HDR and didn't see anything relating to this. In my screenshot, the image on the left is what I had after exporting, vs the image on the right, as I see it in AP. To get this, I just used File>New HDR Merge, chose a TIFF image, and accepted all the defaults. Then I used File>Export to a 16-bit TIFF. I also tried exporting to a JPG and got the same results. I assume I'm doing something wrong, but after a couple hours of trying to figure it out, it's time to ask for help.
  4. I have an HDR 4k monitor. I've upgraded to Affinity 1.7. I'm loading a 32 bit image. But, the Enable HDR is grayed out and cannot be enabled. Any ideas? Thanks.
  5. In the Affinity tutorial video, the process is very quick, all 7 incorporated images flash across the screen, and the final HDR looks good. On my iPad Pro 12.9’ current version, running the latest OS, the process takes four minutes, only a single frame appears briefly on the screen and then there’s just the progress bar, barely moving, and the final product after tone mapping looks crude and blurry. I have tried deleting and reloading to no avail. A single frame HDR simulation in Snapseed looks much better. (The 2 star review relates only to the HDR feature). Is it me? (Attempts to upload example failed.)

    HDR Merge hanging

    When I've an HDR Merge going on, I tend to head off to do other things. However, when I do this there's a tendency to come back later and the merge has frozen. Task Manager is then needed to kill AP. I'm guessing it's a memory-intensive activity (it clearly uses lots of processor cycles) and may be hitting the out-of-resource buffers. Still, it's pretty untidy just to hang.
  7. My first post here, although I've had AP since the first Beta version came out. I have noticed over the last couple of months that my pre-sets for AP HDR were not listed on the left side of the screen, nor were the small accompanying images displayed which show an indication of what each effect looks like. I decided to reset AP by opening it up while holding down Ctrl, and clicking on reset all. Uh-oh, now I have no HDR presets showing. Help please! AP 1.6.5.123 Win 10 Pro version 1809 (64 bit)
  8. Hi I am new in photography and using Affinity as well. I experiment with my camera and multiple focus points and multiple exposure . I am wandering using Affinity, what is the best way to create a very clear landscape photo with great DoF and to be HDR. The steps I have in my minds is: 5 different exposures for each exposure 9 different focal points then on Affinity I am thinking to merge the focal points first (grouped by exposure) , so I will get five new photos where each one now includes all focal points but has different exposure then I will do the HDR merge is this a right approach ? and how I control/decide the correct DoF (lets say is a landscape or night skyscrapers wig water in front or stars) many thanks
  9. The tonemap persona leaves a visible seam if you tonemap any 360 HDR or HDRI panoramic image. Previous errors raised (6 month ago) got some reassurances that 360 and HDR handling would be improved but so far I can't see that. Anybody any idea if there are any plans to improve 360 handling? Cheers.
  10. So I took a bunch of bracketed shots (five photo sets) and was converting them to HDR using Photo on my Mac on site (so people could see kinda what they looked like), its a, I think, early 2012 model, it WAS the top spec rMBP when they first came out so its not as much of a donkey as it might sound, but it was churning through the HDR merge and tone map fine, but to do my main editing I have a PC at home which is a 1700X Ryzen with 32gb DDR 4 and an NVMe SSD, not earth shattering, but decent. When I do the same exact HDR merge process on photo on my PC, its slower, like, noticeably slower, now I am assuming there is something wrong, like a setting or something somewhere that I have set wrong (I generally don't mess with settings though so pretty sure everything is default), surely there is no comparison in power between the two machines, but yet it takes longer on the more powerful one? Am I the only one who a) bothered to get affinity on both pc and mac and b) noticed this? Any tips? Cheers Charles
  11. It's 44c hot here -- working up to 46c . the record is between 46 - 47c ; but will drop to a 28c tomorrow!! This is a true "grab-shot" that happened while doing other things. Made from the three bracketed files -- just time for one click with the camera held above my head. Honest comments and questions welcome as always
  12. All the best for 2019mostly done in Affinity -- +Lr5. Not going to add too much here as I'm just putting a few thoughts to the test for better Panoramas and Manual hrd/blending as done in the top images. Hoping to share a few ideas sometime this year lol the panorama is west to east ; around 160 degrees. Around 6 -8 Pana Fz300 raw files . Handheld btw Starting to get the old head around Ap; yet there is so much I still need to get up to speed on Questions are welcome
  13. when developing HDR images there is the danger that with RGB color mode you get color faults, because RGB represents color and luminance in the same value. If Affinity Photo would enable a LAB 32 bit HDR color mode that would solve the problem. Because color and luminance are now separated, the large dynamic range of HDR images are mainly reflected in luminance. This prevents color faults during HDR generation. By the way, I like the way Affinity Photo is adressing HDR development in the workflow. However, because I quite regularly get color faults during development, I can not use it in many situations (see attached image as an example for such a color fault in the sky). In this case I use my LAB 32 bit based HDR development programm (Oloneo), which produces nicer color without color faults.
  14. This problem did occurs after creating a HDR merge / tonemapping (3 old NEF files out of my 2014 archieve) When adding an inside border effect "stranger things" :-) happens. See attached video. The problem also occurs with the Beta V 1.6.5.109 If I export the document as a JPG file and reopen it everything works as usual. Inside BorderProblem.mp4
  15. Hey, I have 3 pictures as tiff opened Affinity. Those are all taken with bracketing and was trying to convert those to HDR. I know this is kind of stypid but seems like there ain't option for merge layers as HDR only open as file. It ain't hard job me to just open those files that is true but was thinking is there change to add option for merge layers?
  16. Hej there, I am using an i7 Skylake with an GTX950M and 16GB RAM, still I get very very slow panorama and HDR renderings from Canon CR2 files. At the same time, very little CPU capacity is used (~15-20 %). Tonemapping panoramas takes easily a complete afternoon! I would love to see an performance upgrade in future versions (even if I have to pay for it). Otherwise, Affinity Photo is close to irreplacable as the generated images are excellent. Even the output using the default settings is much better than for example Aurora HDR, imho. Sincerely, Benedikt
  17. hi, cant wait to try affinity photo for windows, and my number 1 question is: does or will Randomcontrol "ArionFX for Photoshop" link plugin be supported? i am asking here as its not on your list: http://www.miguelboto.com/affinity/photo/plugins-support/ i'll buy affintiy photo definitely if it is best regards Reinhard Kepplinger

    First steps in HDR Persona

    hi, here is my first HDRImage.
  20. Is there some reason why automatic lens distortion corrections that are applied to a single RAW file when the assistant is so configured, are not applied to RAW files that participate in File | New HDR merge... ? It would seem to be one of the more evident things to do. Now I find myself having to remove pin cushion and barrel distortion in a separate step. I am running ver. 1.6.7 on a Mac.
  21. Hi and hello, I've the problem, that affinity photo (V.1.6.8) on my iPad (2017 & iPad Air 2, both running on 11.4.1) crashes every time, I try to merge RAW files. Standard workflow is, import the RAW files via Lighting to SD Card Adapter on my iPad (Tested with RAWs from a Sony NEX 3N, Sony Alpha a68, Canon EOS 5D III & 5DS). Then I open Affinity Photo, click on the "Plus-Symbol", the HDR Merge. I've tried to choose from 3 to 6 photos, no difference. What happens next is, with luck, Affinity Photos don't crash via "Loading from Photos" (when its not crashs, it needs an eternity for loading). But I have a 100 % failure rate, means crash rate, when affinity photo starts to merge the files to an HDR. An thats really frustrating. kind regards Ben
  22. Hi, Feel Free to merge this if anyone else has asked, but is proper 10 bit display output to get non-banded gradients currently possible with the colourspace options, or is it on the roadmap? I know Affinity Photo (Mac) doesn't seem to support it yet (hoping it arrives there soon).
  23. Hi, When I try to open the attached nx.hdr, Affinity Photo 1.6.4.104 says "This file type is not supported." It can be opened in other application. Thank you! nx.hdr

    photos not merging

    I just got Affinity and started to use it. At first photos were merging fine as a photo stack or HDR merge, but now the photos start to merge and then don't complete. Ive tried closing and reopening the program, Ive tried shutting down and restarting the computer, nothing has worked to get Affinity working again. this is the main reason I purchased this program, so I could merge photos! Please help. Thank you
  25. I am pretty new to AP and still learning my way around. I need some advice on how to handle an alignment problem. i’ve shot a moonrise over the skyline of a big city. The moon was almost full and very low in the sky, just over the top of the skyscrapers. It was 40 minutes after sunset, so it was already quite dark. So, I took about 8 shots at various shutter speeds so that I would have several bracketed around the correct exposure for the moon and several more bracketed around the correct exposure for the skyline. With so many shots, and with the extra delay for mirror lockup for each shot, it took over a minute to snap all the photos. As a result, the moon moved quite a bit over the set of shots. if I don’t auto align, then the buildings stack perfectly and make a very nice hdr composite, but the moon is a disaster. If I manage to get them to align the moon, then the buildings would become blurry. in a perfect world, i guess I would separate the sky from the city, merge the stack of sky pieces, merge the stack of ciy pieces, then put the 2 merged pieces back together somehow. any suggestions?
