  1. 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!
  2. I think many of us are in desperate need of an alternative to Lightroom. I love Affinity Photo and know that you could create an amazing photo management program. I personally wouldn't need the photo editing capabilities of a Lightroom alternative, mainly just the management of large numbers of photos.
  3. What have done or not done ?. I did have Ap as the default ext editor; however after opening a file with Nic Color pro 2; I cannot get Ap to be the default again. From memory, I had a few dramas originally . >> Lr preferences > external editing > choose >Affinity > photo icon --- however that does not replace the Nic apps. The work around is export >folder > Ap > open > save > import to Lr . yep much easier straight from lr5 Would be great if we could remove the Ps option so we can have two defaults Thanks for your thoughts
  4. This is my first post I'm new to this forum. Ive tried and looked for hours to find out how to save all my adjustment layers to Preset(s). From my understanding you have to save each layer and label it. For example, adjusting and then saving the Vibrance as a preset and naming it. After saving each layer preset on my finished picture and labeling them, I opened up another photo, which I want to have the exact same adjustments. I clicked on all the custom layer adjustment presets I just made but the picture doesn't turn out the same in the end? Even though when I click on each preset (in the new photo that I want to look like the previous) it says its tweaked the same as the one I saved, but the photo still looks drastically different? Do all NOT adjustments transfer over? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a better way to do this? (and im not talking about the background people photoshopped out, im aware of that) THANK YOU for reading this, this is so frustrating and it makes me want to switch back to Lightroom. (the picture without people is the look i want, the picture with people is what happens when i click on all the saved presets for the finished picture)
  5. I am running Lightroom 6.14 and because I am quite familiar with it I do most of my straightforward editing in it at present.LR allows me to click 'edit in Affinity Photo'. This creates a copy of the photo in LR and opens it in Affinity photo as well. When I have finished working in APh is there a way that I can send it directly back to LR? If I try to 'export' (or save for that matter.) I only get a list of drives and main folders such as Desktop and Documents, I cannot bring up any subfolders or see a link to LR. At the moment I am having to export to Desktop or a recently used folder and then import it back into LR using LR's import function, which is very longwinded. Any help would be appreciated.
  6. I just noticed this feature in 1.7! I love doinh that in Lightroom so I am so excited that Affinity now does this! I checked to see if 1.6 could do this and it appears that it can not. This is very quick editing if you have a photo shoot all done in the same place and all photos in the shoot need to be adjusted by about the same amount.
  7. I guess I posted this in the wrong place so here it is again with emphasis. Please Please Please!!! Can Affinity come up with an Organizer to replace Lightroom. I just went to check my location tags in Lightroom 6 maps and the map is gone and they say you have to update to the latest version to get a functioning map. I'm getting sick and tired of Adobe and their licensing fees and not supporting their legacy apps. So Please Help Help Help!!!
  8. Hey community, I am in my first week getting started with Affinity Photo and could need some advice from some Affinity Photo ninjas Here are my 3 workflow steps where I need help in the 3rd step/photo. 1. Out of camera: 2. "Basic" adjustments in Lightroom 3. Adding more adjustment layers, live filters, brushing in some stars and fog In the 3rd step I want to add more glow to those contrasting edges of the mountains - comparable with the edges in step two. In Lightroom I brushed in some negative clarity but I don't know how to do it in Affinity Photo, because in the current release there is no negative clarity (or I haven't found it yet ) - unluckily the diffuse glow filter doesn't give me the wanted result (maybe I am tweaking it wrong). Hope you can assist me so I can finish the photo and post the result here Thanks in advance, Marc
  9. Bonjour, En parcourant votre forum, je remarque que plein de solution comme la bibliothèque ( gestion d'image ) sont en projet... Mais, je n'ai pas vu de news récentes... Du coup j'en profite pour poser mes questions ici : ( à savoir que je ne sais pas si cela existe comme fonction actuellement ) premièrement, A quand un vrai logiciel pour concurrencer Lightroom de chez Adobe ? Avec des options pour le traitement des RAWs beaucoup plus poussés comme une meilleure option de la correction automatique des objectifs en fonctions de la marque ou du modèle, ou encore des options TSL directement dans un personna ou module de développement RAW ? deuxième question, j'ai suivi évolution d'Affinity designer/Photo/Publisher et je trouve les logiciels super bien fait et notamment une option cloud qui a été rajouté avec iCloud ( je suis utilisateur MAC et iPad Pro depuis très longtemps ) mais je me demande a quand la synchronisation en direct entre les plateformes du style je modifie un fichier sur le Mac j'enregistre sur iCloud et boom je peut le rouvrir sans l'importé à nouveau sur l'iPad ? (peut être que cela existera avec un module bibliothèque sur Affinity photo ou sur un nouveau logiciel équivalent a lightroom ? ) Et enfin, ( après j'arrête de vous embêter ), à quand la possibilité d'utiliser des presets lightroom dans le develop persona ( afin que ceux que j'ai achetés ne sois pas gaspillés ^^ ) ? Voilà, pour finir je trouve que vous faite un excellent travail et que je serai prêt a tout résilier chez Adobe ( j'y suis uniquement pour lightrioom ) pour pouvoir tout passer chez vous ! Good job !

    A true Lightroom Photoshop combo replacement

    Affinity Photo 1.7 beta completely replaced my Photoshop needs. I would like to have a Digital Asset Management software like Lightroom from Affinity. This will enable culling and then taking them to Affinity Photo for more detailed work. So how to do image management until we get another gem from Affinity? Nikon View NX-i does the job for basic image management. View NXi + Affinity Photo is a true replacement of subscription based Adobe Photography CC plan. Right Click The Image you want to take to Affinity Photo. Register If you have not registered before. Another way to take your image to Affinity Photo.
  11. Hi all, the link to the original post can be found at the bottom of this posting. I am reposting here as I believe it is a bug and no one has taken an effort answering the original post in the questions and answers forum, so hoping to have more luck getting answers by posting in here instead. To summarise: There is a huge discrepancy in the soft proof results between Affinity Photo, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom when using Relative Colorimetric, Perpetual or Saturation rending intents on the same images. The differences are so large that in my opinion seemingly Affinity Photo doesn't even attempt to bring the out of gamut colours to the nearest possible colour based on rendering intent. To illustrate what is going on please see below image comparing the result between the three applications and rendering intents on the same image. As you can see the Adobe products are both producing near identical results while Affinity Photo seeming does nothing, making it very difficult to trust what I see when soft proofing in Affinity Photo. Also attached here are a selection of ICC profiles I've tested with (including the icc profile used in the chart above), different printers doesn't seem to matter either, so I am sure it's not a profile issue, rather an application issue. Profiles are Hahnemüehle and Canson profiles for Epson printers. HFA_Eps3000_MK_PhotoRag.icc HFA_EpsSC-P800_MK_PhotoRag.icc HFA_EpsSC-P8000_MK_PhotoRag.icc cifa_p800_baryta310_p_bk.icc cifa_p800_edition310_m_bk.icc cifa_p800_ragphot310_m_bk.icc HFAPhoto_Eps4880_PK_HahnemuehlePhotoPearl.icc HFAPhoto_EpsSC-P800_PK_HahnemuehlePhotoPearl310.icc HFAPhoto_EpsSC-P800_PK_HahnemuehlePhotoSilkBaryta310.icc I have also tested across several images with the above profiles and results are consistent, the Adobe products brings colours as much as it can into gamut of the destination media profiles colour space, while Affinity Photo for the most part shows no difference between any of the rendering intents. I should note that on some images I do get an acceptable result, (all depending on the information in the image obviously), however when compared to Lightroom or Photoshop there is still a slight difference and most of the times the difference are too great to ignore, at least to me, as illustrated in the chart above. My expectation is that Affinity Photo would compresses the colours to the nearest possible colours in the destination profiles colour space when using Relative, Perceptual or Saturation rending intents as explained in this Affinity Photo video; https://vimeo.com/152413642 Thanks. Software versions used: Affinity Photo: 1.6.7 Photoshop: CC 19.1.5 Lightroom: 6.14 standalone Link to original post can be found here:
  12. I bought and installed Affinity Photo through Windows store. This approach did not install shortcut icon on desktop or gave me any copy of the software. When I tried to link it in Adobe Lightroom as an option for photo editing, I could not find the location of executable file of Affinity Photo. Could anybody tell me where I can locate the executable file of Affinity photo? Thanks.
  13. Hey guys, I'd like to know if there are any plans to develop an Affinity software which would compete with Adobe's Lightroom from a side of batch photo editing. I'd love to go "full affinity" in the future, but as I'm getting more into photography I find it extremely hard to edit like 200+ photos in Affinity Photo. Affinity, please, consider an addition to your already amazing collection of software. <3
  14. My current work flow consists of using a MacBook Pro with a external HD that has my LR 6 catalogue on it. I want to utilize my iPad and Affinity Photo. What I can’t figure out is how to manage my photos using both softwares while keeping all my photos in one place. I do not mind moving my photos back and forth but I do not want to use apple photos.
  15. I set the white balance in Lightroom of a RW2 file, convert to DNG and open in Affinity Photo but the white balance adjustment isn't there. It works if I export to TIFF but I want to work with the DNG. Please help.
  16. Hi. New to product. My mom has windows and my friend has mac. They each have thousands of photos, previously worked on, in Lightroom. Where do they put them. How do they stay organized? Help please.
  17. Hi all, I was watching some youtube videos where someone was using a radial adjustment brush in lightroom to lighten various areas of a photo by adding new brushes everywhere by changing the exposure value. He could change the shape and size of the brush from a circle to elongated elipse as well as feathering and intesity using the sliders. Is this possible in affinity photo? Thanks Jon
  18. Is the affinity team check the Internet to see what are saying about your softwares ? Because if you conduct the investigation, you would see taht the most wanted feature is a DAM. Everywhere in Facebook groups, forums ... it's THE thing that blocks systematically. This is understandable, amateur photographers as professionals use sensibly same workflow that begins with the classification and organization of their photos... it's impossible for a photographer to do without a DAM when he has thousands of photos. Currently no DAM software seems to be able to read Affinity files ... If you really want to explode the market, take out THE PROMISED DAM for years or make an agreement with other software like DarkTable ... You will shadow Adobe only when you'll have a LightRoom equivalent (the dam part of course), in the meantime, photographers monitor, test but do not seriously consider using your software, many will also forget you... I really think that's DAM should be a priority, what about you ?
  19. Hi, yesterday I recognized two complete system crashes while using AP as the photo editor for Lightroom. first I was unable to load the image copy in AP (esp. while AP still was opened in the background) - I had to close AP every time before i wanted to edit an image via LR.
  20. Hi, I've got some problems using the soft proof adjustment layer in Affinity Photo. I am so far unable to replicate the behaviour of Adobe Lightroom (which worked pretty well). I've attached two images here showing the difference in results (left side LR, right side AP). Gammut check is totally off in AP and the shadows are way to bright in the preview. I'm using a color profile provided by the photo lab for their exposure unit and they specify exactly what settings to make for which of their products. In this specific case: Retain CMYK-numbers: n/a Retain RGB-numbers: off Rendering priority: relative colourimetric Black point/shadow compensation: on Emulate paper color: off The shadows in the LR preview also get (somewhat) brighter if I turn paper color emulation on, however that is wrong and I seem to be unable to turn it off in AP...? I hope I'm just missing some settings hidden in another dialog? It seems to me that AP sadly isn't usable for soft proofing in all cases...? I would be grateful to get rid of LR, so any help is appreciated! Thanks, Henning
  21. Hi, in Affinity there are nice tools to stack photos (focus, panorama, ...) :-) It is not possible to sent files from outside the program directly to this tools. But this would be nice, becaus of integration in Lightroolm and similar software. In the moment you can sent more photos to Affinity, but you are not able to use them in the stacking tools. Of cause, a "real" Lightroom integration would be the best for the workflow. For the moment it will help, if there will be a way to send photos to all tools in Affinity (and reimport the result). Regards Stephan
  22. Just got an iPad Pro and my FIRST purchase was Affinity photo to go along with my Lightroom Mobile. I can use Lightroom and then “Open In” and send it to Affinity, but I have no idea how to send it “back” to lightroom along side the original in the catalog? Photoshop Mix and other applications have a “save back to Lightroom” option. As far as I can see, it takes it to Affinity, but it doesn't put it back in the lightroom catalog? Is that correct? Thanks!
  23. I bought Affinity Photo in December as an additional external editor for Lightroom (alongside Elements 2018 XXL). I have used it a few times so far and found it helpful for certain processes on TIFF files. However, I noticed recently that all of my RAW files (nearly 50,000) had mysteriously been converted from Nikon format to Affinity Photo files. I did not see this as significant until I started to have problems with Lightroom (versions 5 and 6 with slightly different catalogues in each). I did not realise the cause of the Lightroom problems at first. After Lightroom 5 crashed completely I reinstalled it and deleted the previews. It now works up to a point but cannot read the RAW files. Lightroom 6, also reinstalled, is stuck in a mode of partial reading of the RAW files, but cannot read them properly. I have no idea how Affinity took over all my RAWs but I would like to know how to recover them, i.e. convert them back to their original format.
  24. Hi everybody, first of all, the following behavior is the same on Windows 10 and Mac OS Sierra (all at the latest versions). MacBook Pro 2016 15" Touchbar - i7 - 16gb Ram - 512ssd - Radeon Windows machine is very similar - just with 32gb of ram and a Nvidia quadro 30 mpix raw files from a Canon 5D MKIV I use Lightroom 6.14 for raw and as an external editor Affinity Photo (Exporting 16bit Tiff srgb without compression) Plugins installed in Affinity Photo and Lightroom: Nic Collection (latest Version) Additional Plugins in Lightroom:Midi2LR (deactivated - only activated when in use) and Koken publishing plugin. Scenario one: Editing and exporting a portrait into Silver Efex Pro - doing changes in Silver Efex Pro and Saving it back to the Tiff file - Lightroom immediately shows me the preview Window of the changed picture and I can also zoom in 100% without no problem - everything works extremely snappy. Scenario two (and here comes the problem): I click on edit in - affinity photo (same settings as mentioned above with Silver Efex pro) - The picture opens instantly in Affinity Photo - I do my edits (more layers, but happens also with only two layers) and close the picture - click on save and save with layers. I see the saving bar from Affinity Photo and wait until it is completed. And now when I go back to Lightroom it is very very slow and it takes forever to update the tiff file. Sometimes about more than a minute. And I can't even preview other raw files meanwhile. During that time CPU Usage gets also very high. After a Minute, the preview gets gray for some seconds and then it refreshes the preview. Now I can work normal again. Is there something special about the tiff files from Affinity? Does Affinity Photo lock the file this long? Any Workaround for that behavior? I have the feeling it was better with earlier versions of Affinity Photo. Thanks a lot guys and greets from Austria! Markus
  25. Hi there, I've evaluating Affinity to work with the raw files from my Canon 70D. For a test I started from a very underexposed picture. With Affinity I followed the lineguides from this tutorial: https://vimeo.com/channels/affinityphoto/202715178 but the best I can get is a quite dull image. See the second attachment. On the other had I see that with a few settings in LightRoom, the software I'd like to leave, I'm albe to achieve better results. See the third image. I'm wondering: I'm missing any step, settings or configuration in order to improve my raw editing with Affinity? I've tried Apple raw engine and Serif but the results are similar. TIA.
