  1. RAW development in Photo limits color gamut to sRGB. This is independent from the color settings. On my system color space is set to Adobe RGB. See picture. The status line during raw development shows "sRGB... (linear)" for a brief moment. See second picture. May be this is the bug in the processing cue. Color gamut was checked with softproof layer. No other colors than sRGB, i.e. no grey areas. Same raw file with different raw development tool results in wider gamit, i.e. appearing gray areas when checking against sRGB. The behaviour is in Photo 1.6.4.104 and in the beta version 1.6.5.119 I use Photo on a Window 10 Notebook. Camera is Sony Alpha6000.
  2. In the portrait tutorial here made by Affinity, we see that the editor doesn't do much editing within the RAW develop persona. Is this a matter of personal preference or rather a good editing workflow? And as a follow-up, does applying something like shadow recovery in the Develop persona perform any better or worse than the shadow recovery layer in the Photo persona?
  3. I have just used Affinity Photo (Windows Trial version) for about a week. It is really an amazing piece of software - I'm especially impressed by the easy to use user interface and how fast the software applies adjustments to the images. Great usability design! However there are a few things that bugged me and I'd not want to move to Affinity without them - maybe I've been ignorant on some hidden tricks - if anyone could advise, I'm willing to learn and reconsider: Cannot save Raw adjustments - I have to restart from zero if I have to stop working on a raw file in the middle Cannot save Raw adjustment as macros and apply to similar photos When doing raw stacking, it would be nice to be able to apply (previously) saved adjustments to each image, before Affinity Photo calculates the stacking result I'm not a professional but I do have my photo trips from time to time. Without the above capabilities I'd be wasting too much time on developing raw files. Thanks for the wonderful work. Looking forward to the good news.
  4. I read a Swedish photo mag review on Affinity Photo. The Raw development was compared to the one in Adobe Raw. In a heavily underexposed photo the shadows are greyed out if turning the exposure and shadows compensation up. I examined in Adobe Camera Raw as well as in Canon Digital Photo Pro. I took this well under exposed photo in my kitchen to get an extreme contrast. I used the same methods in all three raw editors. Just turning up the exposure compensation and shadows compensation. Adobe Camera Raw is quick easy to handle with best result, DPP not far behind. Affinity Photo's result was awful as you can see, it still can not handle my Canon file correctly (CR2 from my favourite pocket camera GX7 Mk II); resulting in heavy vignetting and no lens correction while using wide angle. Too bad. (Sometimes I really miss Photoshop.) A fix coming for these issues?
  5. Since 1997 I’m a professional user of Adobe’s software, mainly Illustrator and Photoshop and since 1999 also of InDesign. At our company I’ve decided to stick with Adobe CS4 and some recent version of a GMG PDF Color and Proof Server because those will do what is needed for professional printing, later a Prinergy RIP will do what is necessary for CTP plates. End of workflow. Keep it simple, it’s all about some odd color separations. TBH, for private use at home Gimp, Raw Therapee, Inkscape and Scribus will do the job. And here we are, at the edge of the huge gap between Adobe and Open Source, but what puzzles me is what will be your future agenda, as you are directly adressing professional businesses on your web page (https://affinity.serif.com/business/). After playing with the Betas for a while I bought the Designer release last week to support the development and I will do so with Photo and with Publisher, of course. The price, let’s say, is more than competitive ;-), even the full price later on will be. I’ve watched most of the tutorial videos and read a lot in the forums. I could have written some threads myself but searching the forums showed that others already discussed these and similar topics: A lot of feature requests (some already from 2015) for professional pre-press, ranging from 1bit-images to basic trapping (yes, that is necessary from time to time), layered TIFF, channel view for Photo, separation view for Designer, selection of objects by attributes (productivity, cleaning a messy CAD file will be a nightmare without), different overprint/knockout options for stroke and/or fill of the same object (solved but not convenient for everyday use) and overprint view, to name just a few. For overprint and separation view - it was mentioned somewhere in a thread - we could use Acrobat. No, we don’t want to do that anymore because we are really willing to wipe Adobe from our hard drives completely and forever if somebody offers a serious alternative. Will that be you? On the German web page for professional businesses it reads: unbelievable performance, precision and professional tools … We’ll see what is coming. I know that Adobe has a very long history in development and a lot of manpower was used. What you’ve started is already astonishingly good and it really deserves time to grow and to get ready for the market, but think twice about which market that can be. From my personal point of view, there is no need for filling the gap because of two (2!) simple facts. Professionals will never migrate from Adobe to Affinity unless they get at least comparable professional tools Open source users will never pay a cent for Affinity because the Gimps and the like provides it for free Target the professionals (pre-press and raw development), you will get monstrous rich and all of us will be happy at the end. BTW, in addition to my personal licenses for home use we will support you next year with some business licenses, just for “keeping an eye on you” ;-) Keep up the good work! All the best, Stefan Bader
