  1. Hi, I updated affinity photo (1.7), and since then each time I try to create a panorama I noticed some glitches in my pictures (Part of the picture are not aligned correctly...). Am'I the only one to notice this problem? Christophe

    Panorama with Affinity

    I am new to the forums, but wanted to say a big THANK YOU to Affinity developers. I use to be a Photoshop user, but have now deleted Photoshop from my computer(s) and have decided to go solely with Affinity Photo. I have not been disappointed. I am especially thrilled with the Panorama function of Affinity, so much so that it has replaced Panorama Maker Pro 5.0 for me. It is a cleaner process and actually does a much better job of stitching very detailed images. The attached image was 6 photos, and it stitched this image 99% accurately. I did very little corrections, which is highly unusual for these type of panorama images. And I do a ton of them. So, just wanted to join the forum and share my experiences with Affinity software and the panorama feature. Thanks again. NOTE: This entire image was done using Affinity Photo, including the background and text. Logo's are used in accordance with fair use.
  3. Stitch a panorama (I had about a dozen images). Then when you're looking at it (before hitting Apply), the horizontal scroll bar only shift the view port only a bit, and not across the whole image. You have to use the Hand tool to drag the image sideways.
  4. Hello there, I am importing a sequence of 21 pictures, 7x3, from a Mavic 2 Pro drone as a panorama. An issue that I have been having is that the horizon on the panorama towards the edges quite often seems to curve away from flat. I've noticed this especially on sea/sky horizons. Is there any way that I can adjust this? I have tried other programs and don't get this alteration but the rendering and colour from Affinity Photo is otherwise far superior for what I want. This is the same in the non-beta version just to be clear. Many thanks in advance, Jim
  5. Large panorama, trying to inpaint a relatively small missing section, I can semi-reliably (not every time but many times) get the app to (what looks like) loop allocating memory. The two times I tried to repro this in the beta the inpaint succeeded (different images) but this seems serious enough to offer up in case you want to verify. Affinity Photo 1.6.11 The project file is 6+GB so I'll wait for you to ask for it. :-D As a side note, this was another instance of the behavior that inspired this feature request:
  6. The intelligent stitching is awesome when it works -- though I've found a few cases where it doesn't, particularly when dealing with ambiguous cloud/sky in a multi-row layout or forest where treelines may be appear _very_ similar without more context. It would be awesome to have an option to see the proposed/determined layout prior to completing the stitching and be able to manually change the proper ordering (drag the image(s) to define where in the overall layout they belong).
  7. Hi I am having problems with a panorama that I am trying to create one photo shows the panorama created in another program, the second one created in Affinity. The five separate images are the original files to create the panorama. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Rich
  8. 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.
  9. Hello, I have photos of a panoramic camera and would like to break it down into individual pictures. Can I do that with Affinity Photo? We have a drone that takes these shots to control roofs for leaks. Axamles are attached.
  10. If this is really not a current feature, please consider adding it to the list. If I'm mistaken and it is a feature, please feel free to enlighten me... often, I'm working with the components of a pano prior to stitching but it seems I must go to the finder/file-open to grab the images to be stitched. I'd like to be able to add one or more actively open assets in addition to grabbing any other elements from the filesystem.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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?
  16. 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!
  17. 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!
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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!
  24. 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
  25. 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.
