  1. Would be nice if you could add an ability to show EXR metadata also.
  2. This is a feature request - not a bug. Using AFPUB 1.8.4.648 OS X 10.15.3 Originally posted August 2018, the idea came up with several users that having captions and other metadata for photos for display in AFPUB would be very helpful. Mention was made of AFPhoto that had made use of EXIF data in that regard and hoped that might trickle over to AFPUB. Simply put, use existing, embedded photo metadata to label existing photos with controls for anchoring, positioning, font, style, etc., etc. Here is one concept of how it might be used - you might have to open the publisher document in a non-beta version. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=122448
  3. I believe I have the same problem. I'll describe it and let you judge. Using: AP Windows 10; AP 1.8.3; JPG files only Using Windows File Manager with "Details Pane" on, I see file data (metadata) in many family photos that I believe was added with Google Picasa years ago. With file opened in AP none of this info is displayed in Metadata view. If I add data to Metadata in AP and export file (JPG) and now use File Manager to view "Details" most of data is there but is sometimes in different categories, i.e., Description converts to Subject. This conversion issue is of little concern. Re-entering all data or not being able to view data while in AP is a problem. Question#1: Is there a work-around? Question #2: Are there plans to have AP import data FROM JPG files? Update (prior to posting) It appears this is a data labeling issue; "Date Taken" is imported in EXIP as "Date Shot"; "Camera maker" as "Maker"; "Camera Model" as "Camera" "Tags" is imported in FILE as "Keywords"; "Rating" is imported as "Rating"; "Authors" as "Author" The important fields "Title"; "Comments" and "Subject" are ignored. Thanks, Bill Carey
  4. I was excited to learn about the metadata editing feature. I have a standalone product that does it, but it is really cumbersome. However, there are some things that Affinity Photo 1.8.0.585 (currently the most recent version for me) isn't doing, and I am wondering if I am missing something, or if it is just not there yet. I am using a Windows PC. I have entered data in all of the fields on the File page, I left EXIF alone, IPTC (Image) I entered my name for Credit, IPTC (Contact) I entered Country and Website. For the Rights, I don't intend to put this image in the Public Domain, nor allow Creative Commons use. So I did not check Public Domain and set CC to none. I did fill out Attribution URL and Attribution Name. In the Statement box I tried to put my entire copyright notice, but there is a field limit size so it doesn't all fit. When I look at Detail, it seems to imply that I have given this image Creative Commons rights, not left it at none. All of the other data seems to be what I entered, only the problem with the short Statement field in the Rights section. I exported my image, which was not nearly instant as usual, I had a progress bar and it took 30 - 45 sec or so. (I have only one layer) Right click / Details of the image shows me none of the information that I entered in Affinity Photo. It looks exactly like the Details from the image before I added the metadata. I did check that when I re opened the image with metadata in Affinity Photo, the new data was there. In comparison, my other metadata editor (Using a different image) shows about 3 pages of information, including Title, Subject, Rating, Tags, Author, and Copyright. Is there something that I missed to get all of this information to show when someone checks the details of the image? Do I just have to leave the rights page blank so that my image is not assumed to be creative commons? Can the Statement field be longer? Thank you!
  5. We have metadata in XMP (photoshop) Description Keywords Copyrights status Copyright notice Copyright info URL Rights usage terms When we import an image in Affinity Photo we only see the keywords. All other information is missing. My question is how to see the other metadata in Affinity? Greetings, Michael
  6. Hi there, since Affinity 1.8 it is possible to edit the metadata in Affinity Photo. Exactly this feature I had mentioned a long time ago. I wonder why the metadata panel is not included in Affinity Designer 1.8. Is there anything you can do? I ask again because I am not a friend of work-arounds. Or do I need to buy Affinity Publisher? (makes no sense to me, because I only need this feature) My old thread: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/101472-set-pdf-document-properties/&tab=comments#comment-544049 best regards!
  7. Hello, in the Photo-Persona the Copyright-Information is missing
  8. I am a serious amateur photographer who concentrates on travel and family photography. I am using Affinity Photo on a trial basis and I am highly impressed with AP's outstanding editing capabilities, ease of use and superb learning videos and tutorials. However, I have just discovered that almost all of my metadata is LOST after exporting files in JPG format! On studying this Forum, I note that any posters have expressed the same concern. This is a deal breaker for me and it will be a great disappointment not to proceed with AP purchase, unless anyone can advise:- 1. is there a workaround for this most basic requirement? and 2. is AP planning to correct this problem in the very near future? I am sure there must be hundreds of potential purchasers who are turning away from AP for the same reason.
  9. Can you add metadata to an image in affinity designer. It is so important for SEO purposes as well as copyright. I noticed someone had asked this question in 2016 so something should be in place by now.
  10. It'd be great if there is an option in AD to add metadata to EPS like Illustrator.
  11. Hi Is it possible to export to PDF with better use of metadata? The metadata passes, but editing in Acrobat Pro is required to display the title and not the file name. Maybe to expand the Fields palette so that you can tag fields and then move it to pdf? It would be convenient when creating PDF UA.
  12. I am trying once more to get to grips with Affinity Photo and have a question about metadata. How can I view the metadata of a photograph and to add keywords?
  13. When developing a Raw image with an XMP sidecar Affinity Photo loses vital metadata (similar to darktable and raw therapee). Only Lightroom preserves the metadata. I attach a screenshot of Geosetter and an Excel table summarizing the result. While non of the programs is perfect, Lightromm is the only raw converter with a decent handling of metadata. Affinity is good, albeith not perfect, when loading from jpg and exporting to jpg. It would be nice if the raw converter would keep the metadata.

  14. Re-posting in the right forum... Can Serif provides a suitable API for reading EXIF data from a Affinity Photo document (.afphoto) ? Or has the Affinity Photo file format been documented somewhere so tools like NeoFinder can read these values of EXIF data ? Thanks PS. Neofinder Web site: https://www.cdfinder.de/en/info.html

  16. I'm having an issue with metadata being retained from an original background image layer in Affinity documents. New jpgs do not update to the current date. 1. Export an image from Apple Photos app and open it in Affinity Photo, thus creating a new Affinity ".afphoto" document with multiple layers. 2. Export a jpg from Affinity document to my desktop. 3. Import new jpg to Apple Photos app. New image returns to original creation date in Apple Photos.
  17. I've searched the support forums and found a variation of this problem going back to 2016. I make extensive use of the metadata fields (both native Mac and the standard EXIF/IPTC fields) in cataloging photos. My workflow is to shoot RAW and develop those raws in a separate application (DXO), generating a TIFF file. I then catalog those TIFFS, add metadata (using NeoFile) and keep them until such time as I need to work on them in AP. When I open the TIFF in AP and edit it, I always choose to save it as a TIFF with AP layers. This gives me compatibility with other apps that I may use later. When I save that edited TIFF, however, all of the metadata I've added is stripped from the file. (Yes, I've tried "embed metadata" both on and off.) After much experimenting I have failed to find a combination which allows me to save as a layered TIFF and retain the data. Problem persists even in the 1.70 Beta. This seems like a basic functionality issue, so I can't believe it would be unresolved for several years. Am I missing something in my workflow?
  18. After exporting illustrations from Photo as JPG files, I switch over to bridge and fill in metadata such as description, keywords and copyright. I thought, at some point it would be cool to add IPTC data in Photo directly, and have that attached to all files that support it, like JPG.
  19. Hi. I am sorry if this has been asked before but I have searched the forum and cannot find an answer for this. I have been happily using AP for several months and learning lots, and have now got to a stage where I am finalising several bits of work. When I work in Photoshop before going further I would go to File Info and then add the image info such as title, description, relevant searchable keywords, and then add all my copyright info and my url, so once it goes out my image has relevant metadata attached to it to help protect it and identify it should people need to contact me. I cannot find out how I do this ANYWHERE in AP and it is a basic but really critical element to the process. Please can someone advise me where and how I access the file info section for images so I can add this information. I have even converted AP images into jpegs etc and searched that way in case this option only becomes visible with more recognised file types but with no luck. I cannot believe a programme as smart as Affinity has not built this in, as in this day and age it is really important to protect your copyright and also allow your image to become searchable with key words. Thanks in advance for your help
  20. Really need IPTC caption support in Affinity Photo, particularly for bulk editorial work. I know I'm one of many others requesting this feature, but can't find any info or updates as to whether this will ever happen.
  21. Is there any way of getting the actual size (in Mb) to show somewhere in Affinity Photo? In Photoshop it shows at the bottom of the screen. Also, is there any way to get the Metadata to display?
  22. Hi This is my first post in the forum and I am even new to Affinity Photo. The main reason I bought the program was to have a stacking engine and Panorama and HDR creation in one tool in my photo workflow. Maybe I missed a check mark but to me it looks like that the stacking engine removes all EXIF and IPTC data from the picture, while creating a stack. I tested it with long exposure simulation, which by the way creates gorgeous results. But after exporting the result all metadata are gone. Export was with "Embed Metadata" On in the "More" view. The panorama and the HDR tool preserve the metadata which is great even if they are a bit faulty(e.g.: Focal length in panorama). Any Idea what I have missed in stacking or it is really a bug? To reproduce: take some photos (I tested it with TIFFs) check if metadata are included (e.g.Camera Type) create a stack safe it and export as tiff or jpeg check the metadata now. Easiest open with preview and then cmd-i (Show inspector) best Michael
  23. I am a full-time professional photographer and I'm very impressed with Affinity Photo for iPad. I believe it could allow myself and other photojournalists, who are often traveling with a lot of gear and transmitting images from the field, to lighten our loads and simplify our editing workflow. However, I need to be able to edit/append photo metadata without having to send the photos back over to my laptop. Specifically, I need to include caption/description, copyright status, location data, and creator/contact info with the files I submit. Currently, there is only one iPad app I know that can do this (Photogene) but it is set to become obsolete as soon as iOS11 is released. I'd love to help develop this app for photojournalists, I think it would be a great tool for many of us. Thanks so much!
  24. Hi, there is one thing I miss from Illustrator and it's the ability to attach scripts, or some metadata, to elements; layers or groups of layers. It's helpful when creating interactive SVGs. Of course it's possible by naming layer/group and edit the code of the exported SVG but it becomes repetitive when you open the SVG again and the code is stripped of the additional code. So the option to have some extra content in the code of an element and keep it intact on re-opening or saving the document, would be terrific. It does not have to do anything, just a field to type som extra attributes to the element and keep them throughout the workflow.
  25. Hi, Is there anyway Afinity Photo can Add Metadata to the final image?
