  1. Empty space ... ... filled! Last week we paid a visit to Shugborough, Staffordshire, an eighteenth century house and former home of photographer Patrick Lichfield, owned by the National Trust. The Room of Imaginary Landscapes has several enormous paintings fitted to the walls depicting, well, imaginary landscapes. The paintings are being taken down for conservation and cleaning; they are well over two hundred years old, after all. One has been removed from its mount and is resting on a stand while it waits to be taken away, and I took the opportunity of photographing it ... which was easier said than done! At about ten feet by eight, and with only a small space to work in, I had to take three photos and stitch them, then do my best to restore the result to a straight-sided rectangle with the Mesh Warp Tool. Next I cleaned up the result by increasing the saturation and contrast and one or two little tweaks; if I had the patience, I might have done a lot more and fixed those water stains, for instance. Here's 'before' and 'after' ... And all that remained was to distort the finished image to fit the gap in the frame, using the Move Tool.
  2. My first attempt at star photography. Not a very good night for it but at least I got something to experiment with. Any idea why the top of my panorama gets stretched out like this? Is this normal? There are two rows of shots, but even if I just take the top row it stretches out the same. Full frame camera with 24 mm lens on a nodal ninja tripod bracket in portrait orientation.
  3. The panorama merge function is one of my most beloved tool in Affinity Photo and I use it regularly to stitch together all kinds of photos. However, the source brush still needs some improving. The precision is rather poor at times. It will produce a line sometimes 60 or more pixels away from the brush stroke rendering the whole idea of a manual selection irrelevant. Also, it's unreliable in it's selection, too. Changing the source at say the top left corner of one image makes the whole panorama rerender, causing to delete / overwrite previous brush strokes. In general, I feel like the tool ought to "listen" more precisely to the user's input. Maybe adding the option to define lines in the panorama it should stick to (e.g. roads, rivers, horizon, etc.) would be a helpful addition, too. It's just such a pain to be working on that huge panorama for hours, seeing all your changes reverted or deleted every few moments. Also, adding the option to go back to panorama source selection might be an interesting idea. I'd rather have a 3gb work-in-progress file for a day than to render the panorama thrice and redo everything again.
  4. 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
  5. Has anyone got any advice on night time panorama stiching. I have a sequence of 10 shots, each of a 1 sec exp, yet the programme will only seem to use the middle section photos - and discard the outer ones? The mid section photos being lite by lights more than the outer edges. Is it just a case that the programme will only work with images that are bright across the image front?
  6. It's a mild annoyance that gets solved if you just hide the Location panel (never understood why it opens by default - why would you need that open when stitching a panorama) but here it is: While creating/stitching a Panorama, the zoom keyboard shortcuts (Cmd +/-) don't work for zooming in and out of the image (useful for checking for seams). Instead they affect the world map at the location panel. Hope it helps!
  7. I would like to stack several images together but still have complete access to the underlying layers. I'm taking close up photos of flowers in the field, using several images to produce one composite that is acceptably sharp throughout despite the handicaps of having a moving subject. I take a series of close ups of the different parts of a flower and then stitch them together. I've tried using the Stack option but the image that is produced is often missing part of my information since the images do not line up one in front of the other and the resulting image has a non-standard aspect ratio. I've also tried using the Panorama option but here, I cannot find a way to access the layers and their layer masks individually. I've seen the brushes that allow you to paint in a mask, but find them extremely difficult to use since a good part of each image is hidden behind another. Since the flowers move as I'm often having to do this outdoors in windy conditions, Focus Merge yields too many ghosts. Any ideas? I would like to have a stack or panorama of images which shows the all the image information that I have and also the underlying layers. I can do this is PS photomerge if I uncheck the option to merge the images together. How could I accomplish this in Affinity? Thanks!
  8. 1a/. I am using the latest update to Affinity Photo 1.6.9.81 on an iPad Pro which is regularly updated. When I am making a series of panoramas from recent travels, in the previous version of Affinity Photo, I could complete one panorama and then select the photos for the next panorama and then stitch them to make the second & subsequent panoramas. However, with the new version of Affinity Photo, both prior to the iOS 12 update and after, I am unable to make a second or subsequent panorama without closing the program and restarting! When I select the images for the second panorama and then press ‘Stitch’ the App greys out the ’Sitch’ button and seems to start the process of preview; but then the ‘Stitch’ button becomes highlighted again. It is impossible to get the stitching process started without closing the App and restarting. So as this has changed since the update to Affinity Photo on the iPad I consider this to be a bug. 1b/. As part of creating panoramas, as noted above but occurring in both the previous and latest version of Affinity Photo, I know that I can select multiple photos from different locations to create a number of thumbnail previews for each panorama. I can then select one preview for the panorama to be rendered and then saved. This feature is shown on your Panorama video. But I cannot find out how to select the second or subsequent panorama preview to then be able to render and save them? Is this multiple panorama creation feature available on the iPad and if so, how do I select the second and subsequent preview? Or is it a potential bug. 2/. When selecting images to use in a panorama, the selection of the necessary images is based on a grid of square (rather than rectangular) thumbnails, making it difficult to select the correct images for the panorama. It would be more useful and make more sense to show thumbnails that show a/ the full image from edge to edge and b/ in the correct orientation of portrait or landscape. cheers Chris
  9. I often create panoramas with Affinity photo. I'm using the raw files as input and export these afterwards as either tiff, or jpg. I'd like the export dialog propose an auto generated filename like e.g. [first filename of pano]-[last filename of pano].extension instead of nothing. Right now I alwas have to remember the original filenames or have another explorer open to look these up.
  10. I found video tutorials for creating the Panorama images. However, when I tried the technique in Affinity Photo, I could not find the "crop to opaque" option. Where do I find this - is it not available in Affinity Photo for windows
  11. Hello everyone, I couldn't find any hint in the manual, nor tutorials online, nor a thread regarding my issue. So, I would like to ask you. I really like the panorama feature of AP and am impressed by the results. Also projecting 360 imagery in equirectangular projection works perfectly well. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to stitch my photos to a 360 degree sphere. I have all the photos I need, the stitching works out alright, but then AP seems to interpret the overlap as a continuation on one of the sides. Therefore, I've tried to adjust them manually in order to align them. But as soon as I use equirectangular projection AP renders a sometimes bigger, sometimes smaller gap between the two edges of the photo. Does anyone know how to close the gap? Cheers, Philipp
  12. Is it possible to create with Affinity, 2D panoramas?; e.g. a panorama from 3X3 matrix of photos. If yes then how? Thanks

    Pano dropping first image

    Hi team, I've made a pano today but no matter what I do, Affinity seems to be dropping the first photo in the sequence. I'm uploading jpegs and have tried a number of times to push the first photo through but nothing seems to make a difference. Is this a known issue? Thanks!
  14. Hi! I work with 360 photos and I love your live equirectangular projection editing feature, but the maximum FOV is very limiting. The feature could come in handy to fix nadirs and zeniths, but the 90 degree FOV is just too low. Coupled with the 2:1 aspect ratio, it becomes next too useless for the intended purpose. I have to edit nadir and zenith in 360 photos very often, but had to revert back to the cumbersome procedure of exporting a rectilinear crop, editing and then converting back to equirectangular again. So, a few things would help: make to FOV grater than 90 allow changing canvas aspect ratio to 1:1 Would changing the FOV limit be possible through preferences or registry editing? Best regards, Robert
  15. Affinity Photo for iPad does a really good job stitching panoramas from sequences taken with my iPad, although the process is extremely awkward when using the camera within Photo itself. What frustrates me is that the panorama feature cannot handle full frame fisheyes taken with another camera, to make spherical 360 photospheres. I’ve imported sets from a Hero 6 Black and from a Sony Alpha 6000 with full frame fisheye, and the panorama functionality makes a mess of them. It doesn’t have the capability to re-project a fisheye to equirectangular prior to stitching. I think the panorama feature is using the SIFT algorithm to get really good feature matches from standard photos, which streamlines the stitching. For desktop and Mac, AutoPanoGiga uses this, also. There is nothing for the iPad (or any iOS device) that will fit full frame fisheye images (or any other lens) to stitch spherical 360 views. Affinity Photo should fill this gap, and it should be able to stay in RAW to make them so further processing in Photo can refine the image.

    Adding Photos to a panorama

    Hi, Iam new to affinity to photo. I have watched videos on how to create a panorama and it looks very simple. File> New panorama > Add > select photos > stitch panorama. Accept I for what ever reason can't get to add my pictures. I press the button then nothing happens. If i click again it pretends that it is doing something but nothing happens. im on a later 2013 mac book pro. I expected it to be slow but, I can't find anywhere that says that this feature is not open to older machines. Can anyone lend any advice. Thanks in advance

    unable to load big .tif image

    I make panorama from 8 images assembled with autopano giga. you could see on my website www.creapix.nc I buyed a Nikon D500 to increase the quality of my "little planets" and make panorama of 771 Mo, until 1,2 GO but unfornately affinity photo hang when i want load a picture of 771 Mo .tiff file. i can't open a file such like this one. i need to re-use photoshop. Photoshop load very fast my image and i can work without problem. To save it is also very fast. I will open a second topic for suggestions. I use a old laptop HP Probook 6570b with Windows 7 updated and with 8 Go ram intel core I5. Affinity version is the last one : 1.6.4.104 Thanks for your support.
  18. So i've taken quite a few pictures with my camera ready to be stitched into nice panoramas. Except, I cannot drag and drop the files from windows explorer into the New Panorama window of AP. Have I missed a setting or is this simply not possible? It's a bit tedious to search through thousands of photos to find the series i want to stitch. Any Ideas?
  19. New Photo user. I shot a panorama using my iPhone 8 the other day, brought the JPG into Photo to enhance and notice thin vertical lines in areas of consistent color - such as sky. Perhaps due to the phone stitching many images? Is there any way to eliminate these? How? Thanks for a great editor. The more I use it and view the tutorials the more I am impressed by its capabilities.
  20. Hi there , starting yesterday Affinity Photo (1.6.7) crashes when trying to render a new panorama: It starts regularly, loads the pictures, combines them (seems rather ok) and when I click ok - the point where before it had used to start rendering, it crashes after some moments (as if thinking a little bit) without any comment. It just closes and High Sierra comes back with a bug report (copy attached). The days before I had no problems generating panos. but when I try to generate the done panos once more, AP crashes again. Restart of the machine made no change be it warm or cold start. Even moing AP to the dustbin and reinstalling made no change. I would appreciate any help - meanwhile I'll try to render on my Win Version on bootcamp and have a look what happens there. Greetings from BERlin Bug report for affinity Photo.txt
  21. This should be an easy one to fix :-) To reproduce: 1. stitch a panorama 2. before clicking "Apply", use the crop tool so that there are no missing areas 3. make sure the "Inpatient Missing Areas" button is selected 4. click "Apply" You will end up with a completely empty image! I tend to select the "Inpatient Missing Areas" button out of habit, even if I don't need it. Sadly, this has bitten me a couple times after 2-hour-long stitches (for super massive image generation). Once you know to look out for it, it's manageable, but it would probably be a SUPER easy check before inpainting.
  22. 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.
  23. hi together, is there a way to create a logo, which can be added to a 360 degree panorama (for e. g. to be used within facebook), within affinity photo ipad version? i have seen some tutorialqs for photoshop but i am wondering how create such logos with affinity photo on the ipad. thanks in advance for your answers.
  24. I've been trying out Affinity Photo's HDR merge couple of times with 360x180 panoramas. Today I had problems when composing an indoor photosphere. One of the images had a window and incoming sun rays. After HDR stacking the image lightning and contrast was different than with the rest of the images. I used full manual settings in the camera and the same Affinity HDR preset for all the images. It looks like that HDR merging has a dynamic nature and the results vary depending on the lightning and contrast of the scene. Is this correct? Is there a way to set "static" or "manual" behavior for HDR, so that the end result is the same compared to other HDR stacks? This is quite new area to me, so I may be asking stupid questions here, or doing things wrong way. If you have any tips or experience on the HDR panorama workflow, please let me know. I'm using Hugin for stitching the photosphere together.
  25. When using RAW images as a source for HDR, Panorama, Focus Merging, it shoud be possible to adjust the settings of Develop Persona. Currently the photos are imported without being able to do this. Please also refer to the threads above.
