  1. Maybe this is already covered elsewhere in this forum. Whenever I try to open a CR2 (EOS 5D Mark III) raw I get a dimension of the image which differs from every other image editing tool. In Photo the size is 5796 x 3870, everywhere else 5760 x 3840. Just curious: Where are the extra pixels coming from?
  2. Hi, I'm new on this forum. Who can help me. My problem is that when I open a raw file (CR2) the develop persona shows a very dark image. This happens since a week and I'm rather sure that I didn't change any settings. Browsing through the topics on this forum I found different solutions but non of these work fine for me. I've tried to alter the 32-bits preview settings from "Unmanaged" to "ICC Display Transform". That wordked but ...only once. Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong? I appreciate your help.
  3. There's countless threads in this forum where people ask for a DAM. Serif confirms that there's some plans, but so far they didn't reveal what they are working on. Reading the requests brought up by users I see that they ask for very different things: Some want a straightforward viewer app, others even request complex database driven software with nifty filtering options to handle huge asset collections. The term DAM unfortunately isn't very clearly defined. Hence my question: Do you need a DAM-program by Serif? And what should it be like? [Edit: Unfortunately I can not do anything about the terrible Poll formatting. Maybe staff can add an empty line between the questions?]
  4. Hello Team ! Just wanted to know at some stage Affinity Photo will support Lens Profile for devices like iPhones, Samsung Galaxy, Huawei, Pixel and Mi by Xiaomi ? IN fact, today there a lot of people are shooting with their mobile phone because it is what they own and like but those devices doesn't produce RAW file the same way big brand does but some will produce HEIC, JPEG and TIFF files. I know you focus on Pro and Expert but will it be possible for small creators to also be taken in consideration ? Blessings
  5. Hi, After opening a RAW photo shot with my Panasonic LX 100 mk2 I check the lens correction box, but it doesn't recognize the lens. I watched the tutorial about adding lens profiles and added the compact Panasonic file, but still nothing. has anyone else had this problem and can it be solved? Thanks
  6. Hi all, Huge gap in Affinity Photo functionality is lack of non-destructive RAW development. The best solution is to create sidecar file containing all adjustments made with RAW. Now it's not possible to do some adjustments with RAW file, close Affinity and come back to work with the same RAW later starting from previous point. In my workflow and presumably for many other photographers working with RAW covers more than 50% of total workflow. So now I can use Affinity only in the final stages of my workflow. I found some other requests for that functionality but without answer. Question to development team: when do you plan to implement non-destructive RAW development in Affinity? I hope not in 2.0 version :-)
  7. Hello all I evaluate AP 1.7 as a replacement for Lightroom but run in some very basic problems with raw file development. 1. When I develop one single raw file (DNG from Lightroom) AP writes a huge file (121MB versus 19MB original). This is no good. Is there a way to save the adjustments done in a fair way without using the alternative formats like tif, jpg etc. ? 2. I want to develop several raw files (DNG from Lightroom) at once with a batch process and saving them in jpg or tif for further processing. However, I do not manage to apply the individually made macro in Photo Persona to process the RAW files in Photo Develop, although I can select the macro. Possibly the macros are not compatible? How can I process several raw files the same way? 3. Is it still not possible in AP to save adjustments made in single raw files in an undestructive way? Thank you for your helpful answers. Best regards,
  8. I need the possibility to export as .raw, for use in Unity. And it does not seem possible in Affinity Photo. Makes me sad to have to use GIMP (a free software) instead if Affinity Photo. So when can we expect this feature? I was really hoping to mainly use Affinity Photo for my editing, but can't yet.
  9. Hey there, I've already in a couple of forum threads about the file size behaviour of Affinity Photo. Unfortunately things still don't quite add up for me. I've got a 10MB NEF RAW file. I've reduced to RGB/8, history is turned off and I also used "Save As" trying to trigger the file streamlining. Still the Affinity Photo file is 112MB. What am I missing? cheers, Torsten
  10. I've probably missed this is the help file, and probably didn't phrase the question correctly in my forum search (or I was not in the same forum: more than one might apply). Scenario Imagine I've taken 20-50 photos with a given lens or lighting setup in one scenario, then another whole set of images with a different lens (or lighting setup). Not so unusual. Steps in AP Developer The first time I open an image in the Develop Persona I can't predict what settings will be needed: I must interactively adjust them to get it to its best, so I do so... Problem Then, now that I know that my following 19-49 images will be fairly similar, how can I copy just certain Develop Persona settings from the first image (above step), and paste them over to other images? Or even just the next image from the set that I've opened? It's definitely possible with other apps, and I'm sure it's probably possible with AP too, but I've failed to find it. Hoping a friendly user can direct me to the correct phrasing to use (for either a forum or the online help), and I can run with it from there... Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi, I noticed a strange behavior with the release version of Affinity 1.7 that I don't recall with the last Beta versions (that I already deleted) and for sure not with the version 1.6.x. I use the Serif RAW converter to convert canon raw photo files to 32-bit linear files. When the prefs are set to 32-Bit sRGB linear, then after the raw conversion I convert the format to ACEScg. When the prefs are set to 32-Bit ACEScg, then I don't need to do anything else after the raw conversion. In both cases I export EXR (half-float files) without the check box "Color profile from name". When I loaded both files in Nuke (from Foundry in an ACES environment with each the right colorspace settings) they were looking (nearly) identical. And this made sense to me. I checked with older files EXR files (that were converted with an older version of Affinity Photo) and the two exports are visually identical. There are very small differences in the colors, this might be rounding errors. The linear sRGB file is actually ever so slightly warmer then the ACEScg file. When I do this now with the new release of Affinity Photo, the ACEScg converted file got much warmer. The two attached images (IMG_7330) were converted with version 1.7 : Prefs 32-Bit sRGB linear, Serif Engine (no tone curve), the lin sRGB was then directly exported as EXR, the ACEScg was converted with Document/Convert Format/ICC Profile to ACEScg and then exported as EXR. Both files were exported with Nuke to JPG (with the same display viewer curve RRT&ODT) The older files (IMG_8454) were converted with an older version of Affinity Photo (April 2017) I can provide the .CR2 files if necessary. Can someone explain why this happens? Best regards Daniel
  12. Adobe came with a relatively new "Texture" Effect in Lightroom. Is there an equivalent in Affinity Photo and if not, could you add this slider? https://petapixel.com/2019/05/14/adobe-adds-texture-control-slider-to-lightroom-and-camera-raw/
  13. Hi everyone! First i’m loving Affinity Photo and am amazed at what i can do with it. One thing that bugs me though is figuring out the workflow from multiple raw files to end photo. I shoot mostly portraits so lighting circumstances are the same for multiple photos at a time. I basically have 2 things i’m wondering about depending on what is possible. Is it possible to apply the develop persona settings to multiple raw files? I believe you can do that with the desktop version by saving it as some sort of preset. I would love to know if this is at all possible on the iPad version. Otherwise feature request Another route would be to use Lightroom for the developing proces and then exporting it to cloud storage. I’ve tried tiff files but that generates 150 MB files from 25 MB raw files (exported as 16bit). Also tried jpegs but would prefer a file type without compression/data loss. Next thing i’ll Try is DNG. I would love to here your thoughts and suggestions! Thanks.
  14. When I try to import the RAW photo from my Photos on iPad Pro,I get the message “Failed to open file” and at the bottom it just say “The file type is not supported “ With previous version,I never ever experienced any kind of a problem with RAW files.
  15. There needs to be a way to go back and forth between the Develop and Photo Personas non-destructively when working from Raw files. This has become the standard workflow for how I do it (and how I teach my students!) in PS: I open the raw file with CameraRAW and then choose to "Open as Smart Object" in PS after developing. This allows me to double click on the smart object layer and go back and tweak things in CameraRAW non-destructively. I had hoped it would work this way in Affinity, but it doesn't seem so. After Developing once and going into Photo persona, if I try to go back to Develop and tweak things, the previous settings are gone and it's like I'm starting over (without really starting over... more like re-applying some new setting on top of the old one). Also, would love if the Nik Collection plugins could run as Live Filters. Having to duplicate my image layer to get a pseudo-non-destructive edit is annoying because of how much larger it makes the file, and there's no way to go back and tweak a setting, just have to trash it and start over if I don't like how it turned out. Overall, I would like to see a push towards more non-destructive editing wherever possible.
  16. As I am already waiting for more than one year I was hoping that with this release I would be able to open my older X3F-Files (made with an Sigma SD15). But .....still not good looking, just compare it yourself: So why do you state in the list of supported cameras that you can work with alle Sigma models? Kind regards Anthony
  17. 1) Photos have been imported from Ricoh GRii to iPhoto. 2) On Ricoh's, when you shoot JPEG+RAW in black and white, the JPEG will be black and white but the RAW will always be in color. 3) From there I am attempting to import a black and white photo to Affinity. When viewing the photo library to select which photo I want to import, the black and white photo appears black and white and there is the RAW icon in the bottom right the photo. 4) I then import the photo but it will only appear as the color RAW version. 5) How do I import the JPEG instead of the RAW?
  18. hello all, Just purchased a new lumix G9 and wanted to post process my first pictures in raw, but seems that affinity photo is not supporting the raw files of lumix G9. Is this correct? regards, yves
  19. I read the following topic. I use the Mac version, but Affinity Photo uses the lens profile included with macOS. I'm using Panasonic DMC-GX7 and included in the lens profile list. When I look at the lens tab in Photo (RAW), it is displayed as a non-compatible lens. The same is true when I open a file taken with a Sony camera or Tamron lens. I think that the profile is applied but I am worried because I think distortion etc. are corrected when I look at the image. Is this normal behavior? Is it an error? --- Affinity Photo 1.7(stable), macOS 10.14.5
  20. Hi all, I have affinity photo on Mac and ipad since one year ago. After starting using it for few days on ipad I stopped using it since then because the raw developer was much worse quality than the Macbook one, especially in darkness, highlights and the exaggerated contrast slider effect (even at 1%) compared to the Mac one. Yesterday I updated it on both platforms to 1.7 hoping that finally the issue in the different "develop" outputs between the two versions was solved (reading all the nice changelogs). Unfortunately I found to be even worse than one year ago before comparing the same RAW file straight out from my sony a7r2. Am I doing something completely wrong or it safe to assume that it's unusable on ipad? Here I just did a quick test, and I upload the RAW file as well so anyone can try. so first, UNEDITED RAWs in develop persona. open the raw in both platform and the histogram is completely different already, you can see how much is underexposed on ipad compared to the one on Mac. The whole spectrum is shifted to the left. You might say "just crank up the exposure on ipad", but that's not the point. Did you notice all the ruined colors in the water reflections? the reflections in ipad looks like totally burned (giant color stains). If you don't have the computer/ipad with you it's even visible in the two attached screenshot "unedited ipad" vs "unedited mac". let's move to the second example, EDITED RAWs, in develop persona. Exposure raised on both to 0.53EV and contrast to 1%, that's it. Photo "edited mac" is perfectly usable now, photo "edited ipad" needs to be trashed immediately, all the details are gone black. I hope someone can finally enlighten me, I don't know what else to do. Probably is my fault as well that I never found time to write this down in one year time. Thanks! Photo_27-12-18,_8_01_14_AM.arw
  21. Without any modifications made, if you add a new View Point using Advanced mode in Navigator, photo become desaturated and unaffected by any tool parameter changes.
  22. When viewing Raw files with this latest version 1.7 the main screen is very much dimmer than the navigator screen. This was not a problem before the update. The 32 bit preview seems to be causing the problem in that if you adjust the Gamma and exposure in the 32 bit preview, the main screen brightens to the correct brightness, the navigator screen stays the same. However, this setting is then lost on opening a new file, so you have to do this every time. I am using windows version 1903, so maybe this could be the problem if other people are not affected, however the previous version was OK with version 1809 Not had time to do further tests but will update with more information when I do. regards
  23. Archive.zip 2017 033 - 18.tif only opens in "Develop persona, whereas 2017 033 - 19.tif opens as expected.
  24. Hi, I'm trying to understand why Photo opens my black and white scans as RAW color files. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm using scans from Epson Scan 3.9.4 at grayscale/16bit and saving them as .tif files with an embedded Epson 1.8 Gamma grayscale profile. Tried opening them with both Photo Beta 1.5.2 beta 5 and official release Photo 1.5.1 thanks, Marcus MacBook Pro mid-2012 Sierra 10.12.3
  25. Hi, I recently purchased Affinity Photo for use on an iPad mini 2019. The app constantly crashes when editing uncompressed RAW files that have been transferred via an SD card/lightning adapter into the Photos app. Steps to reproduce: * import an uncompressed ARW RAW file from the Photos app on iPad * Edit the file in Develop mode * Adjust settings such as Exposure, Clarity or Shadows/Highlights The app dies very frequently as the sliders are adjusted and disappears without any error message on screen. All changes are lost. Specs: * iPad mini 2019 64GB wifi version * IOS 12.2 * Affinity Photo 1.6.12 * Files are uncompressed ARW photos from a Sony A7iii. Hope you can help me resolve this, as I was hoping to use the iPad as my primary editing tool for an upcoming trip. At the moment the app is completely unusable for RAW files with Affinity Photo I can submit Photo*.ips crash dump files if that would help. Thanks /Steve
