  1. Hello I recently switched to Affinity photo, currently on the latest version 1.8.4, been using it for like a year and so far loving it. except the following issue. I am using Nikon Z50 camera, and set my camera to take photos in RAW + JPEG whenever I shoot a photo, then copy the sd card contents to my mac 1. The JPEG taken by the camera has correct colors / white balance / exposure. 2. Opening the NEF file in Affinity photo develop persona, and change nothing, click develop then export the resulted image to JPG looks so flat, no vibrant enough, and it's really really hard to match the exact white balance i saw or the exact white balance of the original JPEG mentioned in point #1 3. Opening the same NEF on Capture One 20, and also changning nothing and export the image to jpg, gives way better image, comparable to #1 but not exactly 4. Opening the same NEF on FastRawViewer then taking a screenshot of the view also gives a good result, comparable to #1 but not exactly For comparison, i did the same for photos taken with my old Nikon D3400, and surprisingly the resulted image from Affinity photo NEF -> Export is not far from the original JPEG from camera. See d3400 original: vs d3400 processed in affinity photo (NEF -> Develop -> Export) I am wondering what might be causing Affinity photo to be off this much when processing NEF files especially for Nikon Z50 ? does any one with Nikon Z50 faces the same problem? Thanks
  2. Hello, I am having problems working with a specific set of NEF files I shot using my Nikon D610 SLR. The other night I shot some photos of Comet Neowise. I planned to use stacking, and shot 9 photos in a series. I can bring most of these images into Affinity Photo and either develop them or create a new stack without a problem. All but this one set of stacked images. This set of photos is unique from the others in that they were all shot at very high ISO (25,600), where all my other NEF images are much lower (3000 or less). I can view these images in the MacOS Finder, in Preview, in GraphicConverter, and in other applications, and they are rendered fine, even in GraphicConverter's RAW processor (which is inferior to Affinity Photo's). But if I try to open one of these RAW files for developing in Affinity Photo, I get a display of random RGB noise. The first few lines of pixels in the image show normal, but the rest is noise. And when I create a stack of these in Affinity Photo, the top band of the image is fine, but the area of random noise is evident, although greatly reduced due to the stack mean. Affinity Photo does report the correct photo data (ISO, camera, lens, etc.). Attached is one of these NEF RAW images, a screenshot of what I see in Affinity Photo when I load one of these images (mostly random noise), and a screenshot showing what MacOS Preview displays for the same file (a bit faint, but fine). I have not altered the files in any way; I've only download them from the camera. Since my other applications can open/display the file, It seems to me this is a problem with how Affinity is handling the files, as if at a certain point in the file it is interpreting the data incorrectly. I think this set of files might generate a decent image of the comet, if I can load them properly in Affinity Photo. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you. 20200724-Nikon-RKL_0353.nef
  3. Hello- I am a new Affinity user (got the program this January.) I have questions about the Develop persona. I shoot with a Nikon D7000 and use a Dell laptop running Windows 10. I find that NEF RAW files usually display as very dark in the Develop persona and lighten significantly when I hit "Develop" and move to the regular Photo persona. Then I have to re-adjust the levels if I want to get it back to how the photo appeared after edits in Develop. The confusing thing is, this does not happen with every image, and I can't figure out which variables differ between the photos that preview accurately in Develop and the photos that do not. It might have to do with which specific edits I applied in Develop, and this issue may come up more with photos that were already on the darker end of the spectrum. I have checked my monitor display settings and they seem to be OK. Is there something I can do to make the Develop persona provide a more accurate preview of how the photo will appear in the main Affinity Photo Persona? Is there something basic I am missing? Thanks, Alexis
  4. Hi, Affinity Photo reads the message "the file type is not supported". System Windows 10 Affinity photo : 1.8.3.641 File : see attached file In the folder only few files are unreadeabled. All the file are read without problem with ViewNX. Best Regards. Yves POUJOL. DSC_4762.NEF
  5. I’m absolutely puzzled and surprised. So many people rave about Affinity Photo being better than Photoshop but at least photoshop can open and edit raw files. I have spent the last hour staring at the screen with a RAW file loaded and I cannot fathom what (if anything) I can do with it. Maybe I’m wrong but I’m guessing Affinity Photo is not capable of working with RAW files? Hope I’m wrong. Martin
  6. I used my DSLR Nikon D7200 for the fist time since installing .258, when I try to open the file Affinity goes so far then just shuts down, I tried files from last year which previous builds had opened, same effect. I have 112 Gig of free disc space, I use windows 7 and have 8 gig of ram. one time I had the error message below. can you help please.
  7. I’m a newbie with very basic question. I have many NEF raw photos with associated sidecar file containing changes to the raw file. Must all the photos be saved as a combined file, such as tif, before importing? Or can the NEF raw file with associated sidecar file be imported?
  8. I've just tried to import my RAW NEF files from a nikon Z6 and they do not work. It corrupts the file or doesn't understand it. They work fine in the nikon image viewer software. Please tell me I haven't wasted my money getting Affinity Photo. It's crazy if it actually cannot understand these files.
  9. So I've read through the forums, and see that the Nikon D610 is listed under the supported RAW cameras. I've also seen several posts where people are having issues opening multiple nef files. Since nef is Nikon's raw format, I'm curious as to whether or not it is actually supported. I recently deployed AP to my end users, and have been getting feedback that the application is constantly freezing and crashing. After speaking with them, I've discovered that the files they process come from Nikon D610's and that they must be in a RAW format. Well, the only RAW format that these cameras can capture in is nef. Again, reading through other posts, it seems that nef is not currently working as intended. However, the D610 is listed under the supported RAW formats. If you could please clarify if this does or does not work, and if it does, any help to address the situation would be appreciated.
  10. Hello, A rather strange thing's happening when opening raw files with affinity! I have a Canon 60D, a canon 200D and a Nikon D850. I shoot mainly raw and am used to make some minor editing of my photos. Most of the times I'm already satisfied with the "in camera" result and just make some minor adjustments later on in my computer. So, I use the camera profiles to adjust parameters (like contrast, saturation, ecc) and then export the raw (or nef) files to my computer. When opening (with affinity) the files from my 60D, there are no differences between the osx preview software and the image I see in Affinity; meaning that Affinity can, at least to a certain degree, read the profiles and adjustments the user makes in a canon 60D. But when I open my files from the canon 200D or from the Nikon D850, the raw files are simply flat, with no customization what so ever (in the preview software they look just like in the camera or if they were jpegs)! You'll probably answer me by explaining that a raw file is "raw", etc, anf I know that, but it's very useful to have a software that can read the changes you make "in camera", otherwise you're throwing a big and beautiful part of your work in the bin. What can I do to solve this problem? Am I doing something wrong? Thank you in advance for your attention, Simão
  11. No es capaz de abrir archivos NEF de Nikon D7000 en el IPAD aunque en su descripción dice que lo hace. Cada vez que intento abrir un archivo RAW de la Nikon con formato .NEF la aplicación se cierra, y no me sale ningún error. El motivo de comprar esta aplicación es para editar NEF de Nikon y CR2 de Canon y lamentablemente sólo puedo usarla con Canon. Para mi una gran decepción aunque las posibilidades que ofrece son muy grandes y el flujo de trabajo me gusta más que Photoshop. podrían ayudarme necesito solucionar este problema por un viaje que tengo cerca y necesito la APP para trabajar. Una lástima, espero que lo solucionen rápido.
  12. Apologies if this has been reported before but I’ve been evaluating the trial version of Affinity Photo for Windows (v1.6.0.89) for a few days now and so far, I have encountered three times what seem to be a bug where the image I’m working on suddenly turns dark gray. The UI is normal, only the image is affected. First instance is with a NEF file from a Nikon D500. The Image opened correctly (Colored) and was able to edit in Develop Persona. While working in basic tab, the photo suddenly turned dark gray. At first, I thought I may have done something wrong while editing. Moving the history slider back to the left did not do anything other than vary the exposure lightly. At this point, it didn’t matter what Persona I’m in or what slider I adjusted, the image stayed dark gray. I canceled the edit and closed AP, then reopened the same file only to come up colored for about two seconds then went back to dark gray. Third time seem to be a charm as it opened the same file correctly and was able to edit in Develop Person and eventually exported the image. Second instance was a day or two later with a different NEF file/photo but from the same Nikon D500. Third occurrence was with an old PEF file from a Pentax K5. This one I was already done editing and was simply looking around the image for a final check before exporting when it simply turned dark gray. Closing/Reopening AP did the trick but unfortunately, in doing so I’ve also lost all the editing I made. Has this issue been reported before or am I the only one? My system: Toshiba Laptop (Windows 10 Home / 64bit) CPU: Intel Core i7-4720HQ @ 2.60GHz Mem: 16GB Storage: Samsung SSD 500GB Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600
  13. I cannot see any layers after opening a Nikon NEF/RAW file in Affinity 1.6.6 on my Macbook Pro (both layers panel and layers menu) I have tried to reset the Studio, but this makes no difference. Layers are not the only menu drop downs that are missing from the menu bar. I can only see 5 menu drop downs instead of the usual 11. I have the same issue with two different Macbook Pros, running different operating systems and with NEF/RAW files from multiple Nikon DSLRs. Can anyone help me with this problem? Thanks
  14. What are everyone's thoughts on how Affinity processes RAW files (v 1.6.6). Are you happy with the output? I continue to be challenged with the perfect software for my needs so I thought I would start with highlight recovery and create a comparison file using the same photo in a number of different applications. Note that this is far from a scientific study. What are you all thoughts on which is best? Again, this is only the highlight recovery and I know there are other factors involded in development.

  15. Hi guys, I am fairly new to photo editing in general and Affinity photo in particular. However, I have used affinity photo since the last release and now I am using the 1.6.0.89 build. I like it a lot, but I have experienced one bug so far. It is a little annoying bug. I have startet to take pictures in RAW, as I have a Nikon camera the file format is .NEF. When I load the RAW image in Affinity photo I do not get any camera data. It just says "no camera data" at the top. I am missing my used optics settings etc. If I check the properties of the files in Windows, I see all the information that I want to be shown in Affinity. If I open the files in Nikons program Capture NX-D, I can also see the information. At first I thought there were some kind of problem with the .NEF files so I opened the files in Capture NX-D, exported them to .Tiff files and then opened them in Affinity, but I still couldn't see the camera data. So there seems to be a problem with camera data information for RAW files in general for Affinity photo. Does anybody else have the same problem as me ? Is this something you can adress in the next release ? Other than this bug I am very happy with my purchase so far and I want to say thanks to Serif for a good photo editing software !
  16. When I open a NIKON NEF raw picture in Affinity photo the color space and the dimensions are wrong. Affinity shows sRGB instead of RGB / 3900x2613px instead of 3872x2592px / see attached screenshots
  17. Hi, I got .NEF image. When tried to export to PNG and canceled it i get an Alert with no more information. I continued my work and all is fine. But in my opinion there should be some more information when Alert occurs.
  18. I am interested in finding out the ramifications of trying to import and export raw photos from Apple Photos program given that NEF files are not listed as one of the formats to use for export on the Affinity program. I use my Nikon camera to shoot raw exclusively and wonder if this is the best photo processing program for me to use.
  19. Hello, I hope this is solved now also the problem of slow opening of RAW (NEF) files in Windows 10.
  20. Hello, I have the beta version of Affinity Photo 1.5.1.52 installed. Opening an NEF file still takes too long - 28 seconds (Windows 10, 64 bit). Greetings
  21. Maximale Anzahl der Zeichen überschritten Gib Text oder eine Webadresse ein oder lasse ein Dokument übersetzen. Abbrechen Übersetzung für Hallo, Photo Affinity ist eine gute Software.Stattdessen übersetzen mit Hallo, Photo Affinity ist eine gute Soiftware. MEHR ÜBERSETZEN Hello, Photo Affinity is a good Soiftware. There are still some problems, which would be to fix. For example - the RAW - NEF files are opened too slowly. It takes 30 seconds for a file to open. I have experiences with Lightroom and with Capture one. There, these files are opened much faster. If Photo Affinity is used as RAW convertor professionally, the problem must be solved.
  22. Have opened Nikon RAW file, NEF, from an older digital camera, E5700. While in RAW editor, prior to pressing develop, if i click on the White Balance option I get a messed up result. When I click off the WB option it goes to normal. using the sliders has no effect. All the other options appear to be working just fine. However, once I develop the photo I can use the WB adjustment layer and it works just fine. TIA, UltraRed
  23. Afinity Photo: Importing RAW images are being changed and turning very yellow. This has been happening since the update because I have our companies head shots that had the same issues but couldn't put my finger on it why they were coming out very yellow. I was thinking it was the white balance issue with my camera and the muslin blue background but its not. Attached is an image of the original nef file and the uploaded one with nothing done do it. The photo's are really unusable even when edited. Please help to address this. If there isn't a fix, I won't be able to use AFphoto for any of my editing needs.
  24. Hi, I tried to develop NEF-Files coming from a Nikon D610. The camera Profile is not shown (see screenshot 2) and AP does not convert the camera profile into the output profile. The result is much to red in comparison to the image developed by Nikon View NX (see screenshot 1). Can you help?
