  1. I recently purchased a Canon R5 series camera. I looked up supported files for Affinty Photo, which lists the ability to read HEIF files. https://affinity.help/photo/en-US.lproj/index.html?page=pages/Appendix/fileformat.html?title=Supported file formats However when I try to open a file using Affinity Photo for a directory that contains Canon HEIF (*.HIF) - no files are listed. I have installed the HEVC codec from Canon - its software now reads those files. Is there something I need to do in Affinity to be able to open them?
  2. Hi all, thank you for the wonderfull software in the most recent version heic support was added and there are some settings about depth maps but i cannot find any tutorial for, for example, depth map editing and usage any links? thank you all
  3. With the update to iOS 11, images synchronised from iOS devices to a Mac are in HEIC file format. When I attempt to open these images using Affinity Photo from within Apple Photos the application/extension reports "The file type is not supported." Opening a file from Photos in the Affinity Photo standalone app is not affected as the export process changes the file to a suitable type.
  4. Hello, are you plannig to improve heic/heif format in import/export function of the Windows 10 desktop version? Windows 10 now can manage this format by installing free Photo Application extension from Microsoft App Store I think it would be appreciated by Apple iPhone owners. Thanks
  5. When will AP support the file format HEIF on the Mac. In the iPad version it is working, but not on the Mac. When i try to edit a picture on the Mac from the photos library with AP i get an error message, shown in the picture. When comes a solution for this problem?
  6. I noticed today when trying to download and save a photo that I had an option of HEIF format - which may be going to become a new "standard". Out of curiosity I created one, and then tried to open it with Affinity Photo. It seems that AP doesn't handle this format - yet. This may become more important in the future.
  7. Hi guys, Any thoughts on MPEG/Apple’s brand-spanking-new High Efficiency Image Format support? Affinity seems to be a logical choice for people who want to stay current on the latest and greatest standards, all with its fresh codebase and support for macOS-specific technologies… And let’s not forget about PC and iPad folks as well. Having Affinity support that format on all major platforms would greatly boost its adoption rate. What do you say?
  8. Hi guys Do you plan to add HEIF format to export persona ? https://nokiatech.github.io/heif/
  9. I've done some controlled experiments and had another person verify this is repeatable. Steps to produce the problem: Take photo with iPhone running iOS 11 (tested with iPhone 7 and iPhone X). Photo will be in HEIF/HEIC format Export image from Apple Photos on the Mac as an 8-bit TIFF Open 8-bit TIFF in Affinity Photo 1.5 or 1.6 (tested both) - image looks fine Export the same image form Apple Photos as a 16-bit TIFF Open 16-bit TIFF in Affinity Photo 1.5 or 1.6 and the right 10% of the image will be sort of a grey, metal-looking digital mess The same 16-bit TIFF looks fine in quick look and in Macphun's Aurora HDR 2018 Rather than clog up the system with giant files here's the 8 and 16-bit versions of the same photo in Dropbox so you can see for yourself: 8-bit: https://www.dropbox.com/s/nityjdgibkfc9td/boogs 8-bit.tiff?dl=0 16-bit with mess on the right: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0t2kv4x2o7t0ft5/boogs16-bit.tiff?dl=0
  10. I'm starting to use the iPad version and I found it really great. It would be nice if in a future version it will be supported HEIF codec complaint to iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra. Another cool feature but i know it will be harder to do, the possibility to use a Spyder5 to calibrate to iPad monitor. Like app ColorTrue does.
  11. will you be supporting the new heif file format, if so will that be ipad and desktop, if so, when?
