  1. I want to deliver uncompressed 16-bit TIFF files to a client (unfortunately, I don't know the specifics on how they will be printed, like size, paper stock, etc..,) so I would like to give them the best image I can, then they can do what they need to on their end to meet their print needs. So I'm trying to work out the best workflow. There are 12 images I need to deliver, so I was going to batch process them into 16-bit TIFF files (from the RAW files), then open them in Affinity Photo to edit. Keeping in mind that AP can't export uncompressed TIFFs, what's the best workflow from this point? Open in AP, edit, save as TIFF with layers, then flatten, and deliver as is? Assuming that the TIFF I'm working with is uncompressed. Or , edit, save as TIFF with layers, then open in Preview and save as an uncompressed TIFF? Is there anyway to work with the photo in AP's file format, then get it back to an uncompressed TIFF? Not sure if I'm over complicating things, but all I really want to do is Take my RAW file, edit in Affinity Photo, and deliver an uncompressed TIFF. (The client actually requested a EPS file, because they will use Illustrator at some point, but that's not my problem lol.) Thanks for the help.
  2. Hello, I am trying the Windows free trial. I have been loading RAW files and trying to process them. When I adjust the Shadows and Highlights my photo gets real muddy. Photo 1 is right out of the camera Photo 2 is after adjusting only the Shadows and Highlights. The muddiness begins as soon as I adjust the Highlights down. I tried the same photo in ON1 Photo Raw 2018 with just adjusting the same and the photo is clear and sharp. I really want to use Affinity but comparing my results with other apps is not convincing me. Your help would be appreciated.
  3. Hi As I drag a RAW file from Photos app (Macbook, High Sierra) to Affinity it apparently converts it to JPEG, as Affinity doesn't open the Develop Persona. When I try to open raw file from File -> Open, I cannot find any of those files. When I open them in Photos app, they are in CR2 format and I can edit them normally in Photos apps own editor. I've already tried to change the RAW engine. My camera is Canon 700D What should I try next? Eetu
  4. Please help me out. I would like to know if it is possible to make a lens correction to multiple photos at once by batch process? If it possible, how does it happen in Affinity Photo? It seems like an awful slow process done one by one. Or is there another convenient way to do this? Thank you!
  5. Affinity Photo 1.5.2 running on MacOS 10.13 Raw photos occasionally open as double images. The only way to fix this seems to be to close and reopen Affinity Photo.
  6. Recent threads such as this one by @Gregory St. Laurent have commented on the default image when a raw is loaded into the Develop Persona being too dark (or too light or ...) as compared with other programs. My experience, with my rather old Sony A55 camera, is that the default image in the Develop Persona is fine in 95% of the time, and that any tweaking needed is done in the Photo Persona. The odd 5% are those images taken under odd lighting conditions, but even with these, I will typically bracket the shots and merge in HDR. I would be interested to hear from other uses of Sony cameras (old and new). Have you had these problems that are described elsewhere? If not, then it would seem that the default develop algorithm for ARW files is closer to what is expected as compared with CR2 or NEF files. John
  7. Hi, I have a simple question. First off I love Affinity Photo and am moving all my photo editing needs over to it, but was wondering why all my .ORF files consistently appear at least 1 to 2 stops darker in the develop persona than what the JPEG embedded preview shows? Is there a setting that I have wrong or is this just something I have to get used too? I'm currently running 1.6.2 on Windows. I'm used to seeing the exposure level showing the same level as the JPEG preview in other editors.
  8. Hello fellow affinity users, I was using Capture One as a RAW Developer and since I am using Affinity Photo as well I was wondering about the following: When using C1 it always used the raw data as you draw layers right on the raw output. My question is, does affinity use any of the advantages of having a raw file once it has been developed and you left the develop persona and edit in photo persona? Since I am usually not doing too much in the dev persona I might as well stop shooting raw and save tons of storage if there are no advantages beyond the developing persona. Also, what exactly happens when going from the photo persona back to the developing persona and you redevelop it? will you start from scratch? I hope my question aren't too dumb or answered anywhere else Thanks in advance!
  9. Hello everyone ! I just wanted to start a new thread with some creativity First, I'm an amateur photograph and by no way I am gifted at all the professional photo editing; while there are tons of tutorials in affinity photo, I can't seem to be able to have "the best result" ouf of my pictures. That's why I decided to give the community a try by sharing some of my RAW images and what I could do with them on my own. Then, you guys could try and edit the image with your own ideas and creativity. I think it would allow beginner people like me to have other thoughts and ideas during the post process operation. The rules are simple : - Only use Affinity Photo - Try and avoid using external plugins (Nik's collection for example, or specify when used) - Upload your own results in good quality (download file is much appreciated) - If you want the community to pimp your image, the RAW you submit must be free of use (non commercial, for training only, etc) - If you want, detail the process of operations (curves used, shadows, filters, etc...) - Have fun, and open mind in critics ! Not everybody is using professional gear So I'm gonna start with a couple of samples : Copenhagen Picture 1 : Link to RAW file And my edit (I want to create a wallpaper for my phone but I'm not happy of my result) : Copenhagen Picture 2 : RAW File link My edit : India - Hyderabad Link to RAW file My edit : Thanks, and happy editing !
  10. Hi! I have some presets defined, but I found, that changing from one preset to another, changes picture, but not all values in Affinity Photo (some changes, but i.e. color balance not). It can be misleading. Is that how presets works? Any changes in next versions?
  11. Hi, I was editing some images on the iPad yesterday. I'm trying to force myself to use the iPad more for photo editing because I'm tired of doing a quick iPad photo edit, then have to recreate a similar but more detailed edit on the desktop... double the work. I've grown increasingly more trusting of the Photo app in general. I've had some "serious edits" done solely in Photo on the iPad... printed large and was happy with the results and accuracy. So, back to my question... I was editing about a dozen images yesterday in Photo on the iPad. They were all RAW images, shot with nearly the same settings of basically the same subject matter. I found myself doing pretty much exactly the same preliminary RAW edit on all of them. Is there a way that I can somehow save RAW edit settings, and them batch apply them to multiple RAW images on the iPad? I'm guessing not, but I thought I'd ask. If not for RAW, is that possible for JPG sources?
  12. Is it possible to straighten my photo in raw mode? The crop tool does not seem to permit straightening in raw mode.
  13. Hi! I have an iPad Pro 10.1 256 GB with last version of AP. I’ve imported 67 pics taken with my DSLR in photo app, then import to AP. Dev RAW editor cannot finish the develop and the app instantly crash. I’ve tried with an hard reset, but it has the same problems.
  14. It should be possible to apply the same settings of the develop persona when importing a set of RAW images. Saving the settings, loading the photos one-by-one and loading the settings every time is too time consuming. In Photoshop Elements this is no problem! Please refer to this thread:
  15. Hello, I have an issue when opening RAW files. I'm using the latest version of the app running on iOS 11 on a iPad Pro 10.5 (2017). Raw file comes from a Nikon D3300 (which is a supported camera). I have seen the issue on each iOS 11 public beta so far. The problem is present no matter if I open the file from cloud or from my photos. Basically goes like this, when I import the file I am presented with the develop persona. But the image is black, every control is enabled, but I can't see the image, just a black screen. If i press on the check mark button to develop the app crashes.
  16. Hi Team, I can't open a GH5s Raw file. It shows me only Metadata, Camera, Lens, .. Image: "stuck" pixels With Lumix GX85 Raw files I can work in Affinity. I'm using in Affinity Trial version on a MAC Pro, OS Sierra. I just had my fingers on the BUY for MAC button.
  17. I use Nikon D700 and Affinity Photo process my RAWs quite differ from Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Images are losing details and have incorrect tones and gamma. I did not find how to deal with it in Affinity. As a workaround, I can use Lightroom as RAW converter, then export to TIFF and can edit it in Affinity, which totally does not make any sense. Hope Affinity guys know this issue and working on that. See an example below. It is just opened RAW files without any additional settings implemented. You can see how much details I loose in lips and eyelashes.
  18. I am after any pointers you have actauled used to open RAW images as you would in Photoshop (This is referred to as Camera RAW - I think) Basicaly i edited any images at this stage in Photoshop with all my RAW images. So I not asking how can you import or open a RAW pic in AP on a ipad. But as AP does not have this feature yet ? How do you find a work around, i like answers to be from people who have actual found work around, rather than here a 10 mins video which might help. So personal experiences appreciated welcome Rob
  19. When I try to “Develop” a RAW .NEF image from my Nikon D90 the app instantly crashes.
  20. Great work - loving the new release! Slightly faster in all areas. I tested RAW (develop) using Shadows and Highlights. 1. I tried a standard MASTER setting shadows to 100% (all looked as expected) 2. I tried creating a mask (centre dark area of the house) THEN setting shadows to 100% (they were not as bright as 100% in step 1 above), with hardness set to 100%, as you can see. I believe Highlights is the same. I did not test other sliders...... ! Let me know, cheers, Paul
  21. Hi, Can really do with some help here. Just got a Sony A7R3 not too long back. I use Mac Photos for my photo management. From Photos, I tried to edit my .ARW raw files using Affinity. However, when the file's opened in Affinity, it is converted to TIFF. When I export the RAW file out and open it directly with Affinity, it opens as RAW. Not sure if it's a bug, or I have some settings done wrongly. I had no problems with my previous camera, OMD-EM1. Thanks!
  22. Here's my scenario, I did some editing of 14bit raw files in the 32bit hdr format recently using the develop assistant and because of unusual artifacting and noise i abandoned the idea and switched back to 16bit development. However, all raw files continue to open in the 32bit hdr development format. Can you offer any advice for a fix? The latest update 1.6.3 did not help. The screen shot shows a raw file opened when the develop assistant was already set to 16bit. Thanks! David
  23. Affinity v. 1.6.6 Mac OS 10.13.3 Nikon D3300 (.NEF files) After editing a RAW file using "Edit in Affinity Photo" in, closing the image in Affinity photo, and returning to Mac, the image that Affinity saves to is corrupted. The end result looks corrupted. The black point appears boosted, noise reduction thrown out, exposure totally off - really quite terrible and NOT the edits that I made. See the images attached for details. This RAW editing feature using "Edit in Affinity Photo" extension was definitely working back when I was trying the Trial about a month ago, and was one of the reasons I decided to purchase a copy of Affinity. Has anyone else ran into this issue? Is this a known issue?
  24. Hello, Affinity Photo on macOS High Sierra and RAW How does Affinity Photo decode RAW files. Does Affinity use Apples built in Image IO to decode RAW or does Affinity Photo have its own RAW decoder(s) or does Affinity use a 3rd party library? Regards!
  25. Hi! I've bought this today to try and see if its good for editing raw and every time i either import from photos, or from my one drive the raw image appears as black with no exif data displayed. The camera im using is supported and not sure how to proceed! I have download and keep originals selected currently
