  1. 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
  2. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hi All, I recently got Affinity Photo to stitch some panoramas I've shot and I'm starting to get frustrated. I shoot 360 tours so I'm always on the lookout for new photo stitching software, but I'm not exactly ecstatic about the results. When I upload a folder of about 82 photos and hit stitch all I get is a light blue rectangle with just a little bit of one photo in the middle. All the photos have sufficient overlap, probably about 80%. The photos were shot in brackets, but I converted them to singular HDR photos. Is there a solution to this problem. I was thinking maybe some way to force all photos to be in one panorama, like Autopano. I was pretty excited to use AP, not going to lie. The features like roll correction and autofill are pretty amazing, I just hope I can connect the photos so I can use those features. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. Hi, I mocked up a few ideas that I think would improve the functionality of the Photo merge tools by making it easier to switch between them and add images directly. Say you drag a few images into one of Photo's merging tools, only to realize you opened the wrong one. The commands are grouped in the menu, two have keyboard shortcuts right next to one another, and the tools have similar layouts, making this a fairly easy mistake to make. Rather than having to hit Cancel, open the intended merge tool, then relocate the images you want to merge, what if you could just switch to it, with the images you added still in place? The functionality of the Batch tool seems different enough to warrant it remaining separate. To keep the various merging options visible to the user, it might be best to keep their individual items in the File menu. Each would just open the unified interface to the appropriate tool. It would be great to be able to drag-and-drop directly to the Images pane rather than having to open the file picker, then drop to it, then click OK. The visual styling of the window widgets is a bit confusing; the brighter widgets are disabled. This is contrary to most GUI conventions, including how the OK button is disabled in the tools themselves. If the Panorama tool isn’t resizable because the panorama previews would have to be re-rendered (a processor-intensive task), just fix the width of the preview pane while allowing the Images pane to expand. There is some ambiguity in the Panorama tool when you have stitched multiple panoramas together. If you don't explicitly select all of them in the preview pane before you hit OK, only the last selected one will build. A different button label or counter tallying how many panoramas will be rendered (Render 2 Panoramas) might be sufficient. NTH: a way to tell which images constitute which panorama after the panorama preview is generated. This could look something like the mockup below. Ideally, the number displays next to the panorama preview would handle discontiguous stitches nicely, so if you used three of 4 images out of sequence, something like “1 – 2, 4” would appear next to the thumbnail. Originally posted to my weblog.
  15. i have a ioptron ipano pro and im primarily looking to use affinity for panorama stitching. A single panorama can contain 100 ~ 1200 images depending on the settings i use. thanks and have a wonderful day
  16. When stitching 32-bit HDR panorama from previously HDR merged OpenEXR source the panorama "persona" in Photo 1.6.6 does not offer the 32-bit preview panel, this can impede identification of stitching artefacts
  17. 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 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
  18. Hi! I made a 360° panorama with Affinity. And it worked really well. But I would like to set a new middle for the panorama. How is this possible? I already tried to change the time in the exif and xmp-data to get a new order for the solo pictures. It does not work. How Affinity Photo set the start of a 360° panorama? Best regards Alexander
  19. Hi, yesterday I shot a panorama of a sunset and decided to try and use affinity photo to stitch it together. After uploading the images, this is what I got: Is there something I am doing wrong or is it just a bad panorama? Thanks, Jayvin.
  20. When the panorama dialog is open you can't select open images behind it. This is frustrating as it causes 'dead time' where you can't do anything — it would be nice to be able to stitch a panorama in the background while editing files.
  21. When I click 'Stitch Panorama' in the Panorama dialog, there is often a wait of ~1 minute per panorama for the stitching to complete (working with large TIFF files). A progress bar would be helpful here so that the user knows the program is making progress. There is sometimes a spinning progress wheel in the centre of the panorama dialog when stitching panoramas, but it doesn't always appear — this may be a bug.
  22. Hi Affinity team. During the last days I tested the Windows version of Affinity Photo 1.5.1 and checked out those parts most important to me: RAW processing, HDR/Tone mapping and stitching Panoramas. (The video tutorials are great for newbies concerning your software.) I am happy to see all these features under a common hood and working reasonably well (although there are issues like the wrong histogram displayed in Develop persona which will refrain me from using Photo as default RAW software for now.) What I want to achieve: For years now I'm accustomed to create HDR images from a single RAW file instead a series of JPG or RAW files. The benefit is that there are no problems with motion (and thus ghosting) in the image, and no softness as a potential side-effect of the automatic alignment of handheld shots. Today's DSLR cameras create RAW images which can easily compensate 3 EV steps. (Depending on sensor size and ISO, the downside can be higher noise in dark areas, but that's acceptable for me.) My conventional approach is to develop 3-5 differently exposed JPG images (usually with different noise reduction settings) and then creating the HDR from these. This approach is very cumbersome with Affinity Photo, which does not even remember the RAW conversion settings I last used by default. Once a RAW file is developed, the Develop persona is closed and I have to start over for the next exposure. (In contrast to a dedicated raw converter like Canon's DPP or Nikon's NX-D where this is a no-brainer and easily done.) But maybe Affinity has a better approach? What if you could develop the raw file and apply a tone mapping without JPGs inbetween? Lets see, Photo Persona works in 32 bit, and RAW files can be developed to 32 bit HDR. Sounds promising. 1. I import the RAW file, disable applying the tone curve and leave the exposure-related settings untouched. 2. Then I put the developed 32 bit image into the Tone mapping persona -> Voilá, a developed HDR image. And what if I have a panorama of single RAW images which needs HDR processing? 1. You can start a "New batch job", select the RAW files to process and choose EXR as output format. 2. Then you can continue creating the panorama with "New panorama" and select the EXR files as shown in the HDR panorama video tutorial. 3. After the panorama has been stitched, it can be tone mapped in the Tone Mapping persona. Cool - this is a real time saver and more flexible regarding adjustments compared to my previous workflows which would mean first tone mapping every HDR image and then stitching the (hopefully equally exposed) JPGs together. Matthias.
  23. Hi, As the heading suggests, when editing panorama in iPad, there does not seem to be an 'inpaint missing area' tool. In the examples shown, their is a magnifying glass ? icon above the panorama window. Is this only available in the desktop version. is their any way to inpaint the missing areas in the iPad version? If not, is this feature likely to be included at any later date?
  24. Hello, I get strange artefacts on intersections of panoramas which I can't understand, since there are none on originals. Is there any way of avoiding this please? File too big to upload but it consists of regular 'scalloping' of light and dark intersections Michael
  25. Hello, First of all I have to say thank you for doing an alternative to photoshop (and illustrator) it is more than welcome! I am doing some 14k hdri panorama editing at the moment and found some things which unfortunately work not as well as in photoshop yet. Maybe there is a way to fix them!? The process: To get rid of the tripod in the picture it is necessary to do some clone stamping. So what you do is flipping the image vertically and then use the rectangular to polar filter to unstretch the floor. after clone stamping you use the polar to rectangular filter and flip the image vertically another time. The Problems: - after using the polar to rectangular filter the top of the image does a weird stretching (photoshop doesn't do that) what I do to avoid this is just making a mask and only paint in the edited (clone stamped) parts. Unfortunately the second problem is bigger: - after using the polar to rectangular filter the image is unsharp and has a weird jpeg like artifact pattern. First Problem (Stretching in the top of the image) Second Problem (Unsharp Artifacts) It looks similar to the artifacts in the following post: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/16741-rectangular-to-polar-good-results/ Thanks!
