  1. Hello, I have a problem with my Affinity Photo app for my Ipad, it wont open my Tiff files anymore, a few days back it didn’t hava that problem, all of the images that I evere edited in the app where Tiff files, I try to open a image and its sends me to develop screen but the image never apears and when I hit ok the app shuts down, I tried to open old tiff images that I have edited before and the same result, I even tried opening them in I cloud and it does the same thing, can somebody help me?
  2. I started using Photo 1.7.0.243 So far my issues / comments are: 1) My Canon 77D is now meant to be included in this release yet RAW photos are not visible as thumbnails when I try to 'open' a folder. Am I missing something? This is the main reason I thought I'd try out the beta version. 2) The hand tool used to increase / decrease the image size when twirling the mouse dial, now it moves the image around. Is this a permanent change? 3) Cropping no longer has presets. Do I need to set these up & if so, how? Basic ones like 2:3 & 1:1 would be useful. I haven't done much yet so might add some more comments later. Thanks Julie.
  3. Affinity Photo Desktop Windows, latest (non-beta) rev: 1.6.5.135 Win 10 x64 up-to-date, 16 GB ram, >45 GB on SSD, >400 GB on HD & defragged no SMART errors). GTX 1060 6GB. Camera: Sigma SD1M (M for Merrill, inventor of the Foveon sensor), X3F RAW files. Neither of these issues happen with my SD14. Reproducible. Two unexpected behaviours both occurring during RAW import, even with the same image file. Behaviour One Import B&W RAW image, and B&W setting is lost (appears with separate colour channels). Camera has two methods for obtaining high quality B&W images: 1) At time of capture, choose B&W setting on camera body, which flags RAW metadata to treat R, G, B results as one value (grey) per photosite. Actual raw data would still have RGB per photosite, but image should only open as greyscale. 2) In Post-Processing, extract only the Blue channel from raw RGB data, from every photosite. This method loses the photons from the R&G layers, but since the Blue layer is the top layer, it has the least noise, so is pretty good. The other side-effect to this method is that because only the Blue layer is captured, it would be like using a deep blue filter over the lens, making yellows black, reds very dark, etc. So some things may look a bit different from a full-spectrum B&W image. The advantage is that it is reversible (you can decide you preferred the image as a colour image afterwards, whereas the first method keeps everything B&W for good). I cannot find a way to achieve either method of getting a high quality B&W. I would prefer #1 (above) if I had to pick, as you get panchromatic response and lots of photons per photosite, resulting in ultra-low noise, just like from a Leica Monokrom. In this version, attempting this results in a lot of noise, even in a perfectly exposed image. In other RAW processors, I can use zero sharpening, zero de-noising (colour or luminance), and the images are clean. Also, default behaviour is to open as B&W, with only greyscale available (even Irfanview reads and presents the raw that way). I should note that it's not terrible noise, but the camera is capable of using these modes to deliver super creamy B&Ws, and I was hoping to be able to do that. Behaviour Two Import a RAW image taken at MED resolution, and the imported RAW will be auto-scaled up to FULL/HIGH resolution (I could not find how to defeat this default behaviour). Since it's not a perfect upscaling (I calculated around 47%), there are significant uprezzing artefacts, and it's not as sharp. The camera allows photos to be captured at LOW, MED or FULL/HIGH resolution. Again, it's not horrible, but it's nowhere near how other RAW processors handle it. The camera uses one of the native features (though not all manufacturers make use of the 'feature') of CMOS sensors, 'binning', where arrays can report as if they were a lower resolution sensor: for example, a 4x4 grid of photosites would electronically be merged to act like a single photosite, so that all the photons get added together, giving you lower resolution but super low noise images and more accurate colour. Plus, Foveon images are often upscaled 200% after the fact, and still yield as good images as a Bayer CFA, so the resolution impact isn't near as negative as one might think. Foveons are the best at detecting subtle colours and recording micro-contrast without destructive processing, but sadly, they only do that when shot at low ISO or under loads of exposure, so these are frequent methods users employ. Example: MED resolution photo (see green photo resolution) opened & upsampled/upscaled in Affinity Photo as a FULL resolution image (see yellow Affinity resolution). Also, this same photo was taken as a BW-only image, yet it is apparent that it contains hues. One positive upside I discovered from the comparative testing is that the GPU acceleration in Affinity Photo is faster than the GPU-aided processing in both Corel and much moreso than even Sigma's own software. Haven't benchmarked Rawtherapee or On1 on that yet. I have previously uploaded MED and FULL/HIGH resolution images, as well as colour and B&W images, from my camera to the Forum calling for sample images. Note that neither of these behaviours occur with my SD14 X3F (Foveon) images, so it is confined to the SD1M (aka Merrill). That exact same sensor is used in a few Sigma DP cameras as well (I believe it is the DP3 series), so they may exhibit identical behaviour for both these anomalies. Thanks very much. Still learning a lot about the software, but it has made some things that were unbelievably tedious and error prone into downright easy when using Affinity Photo. Perhaps I have overlooked something and that is also the case here.
  4. 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?]
  5. Hi, I am working on Affinity to open my RAW images. I normally have a process to edit my pictures, but I tried to make a preset on the "Basic" area in the studio before developing the image and it just is not working. I tried searching for this bug everywhere but I cannot seem to find anything relevant. I found this YouTube video that explains how to do it, however, I am not getting the option to add a preset. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epN9oIGhL6k (This is the YouTube link). If this is a glitch I would like to know or I just might not know how to add a preset. In any case, please let me know what I can do to solve this issue. Thanks!

    NEF import not working!

    I've just tried to import my RAW NEF files from a nikon Z6 and they do not work. It corrupts the file or doesn't understand it. They work fine in the nikon image viewer software. Please tell me I haven't wasted my money getting Affinity Photo. It's crazy if it actually cannot understand these files.
  7. I am using Apple Photos for importing images and library, always jpg/raw-import. When I switch to edit the photo in RAW and choose to edit with Affinity from within Photos the images appear split in 2 or 4 in Affinity, and are impossible to edit/develop. Jpg editing works. Examples attached. Currently Affinity is not possible to use for RAW develop from Apple Photos. What to do? BR
  8. Hi All I currently subscribe to Adobe and I'm finding it difficult to let go of Lightroom and Photoshop. I've had a Affinity for a while now and have gone through the Workbook to understand it better. However, I've found it's ability to carry out RAW processing in the Develop Module is lacking a little. If opening a DNG file (Which 99% of my RAW files are) I've found it doesn't render the blacks as well as a native RAW (Such as a CR2 for Canon). plus it doesn't handle the shadows and highlights as well as Adobe in general. More recently I've given an overview of Affinity Photo to our the Camera Club I attend, as I don't think anything comes near it for the price and is a great asset for those not wishing to go the Adobe route. As part of the overview I put a few DNGs together to show the club and came across a strange pink colour cast on a DNG compared to Adobe Camera RAW. See attached. I've also attached the DNG to get your thoughts. Keep up the good work guys! Designer is also superb!!!!! Carl 30_07_2018_Wales-2018-FUJI-XE1_174.DNG
  9. Hi, all of the raw files from my Canon 2000d are pink or purplish. I have downloaded the latest Affinity software 1.6.5 and wonder if this Canon camera is not yet supported? It's certainly not listed online yet. Anyone help? Many thanks!
  10. When I open a CR2 file it looks washed out and dull compared to the JPEG. I am using a Canon EOS M. Here's an example - CR2 on left and JPEG on right. (I have tried searching for this problem but can't find an answer anywhere.)

    Batch updates lose exif information

    When I tried batch processing of photos, I did: select the raw photos use a macro to apply the same crop save as png The exif data was dropped from the photos. When I did the operations on the photos one by one the exif data was preserved into the png files.
  12. Hi Affinity Team, I am having a few issues in importing my CR2 RAW files from my Canon 800D Camera. I am using the Apple (Core Image RAW) engine for RAW Files and it causes the images to display like the example picture attached below. I have never had this issue previously before importing images from my Canon 800D Camera and I think it has only started since updating my Macbook Pro to the latest macOS Mojave. I can strangely tho be able to import a Panorama or Stack using those same RAW files and the issue doesn't happen. I can also load images using the Serif Labs Engine with no issues also however it does remove most of the colours from the image for some reason and has so since the beginning on any RAW File. I am not sure if the Issue is Affinity Related or Apple Related and would love this to be fixed or find away to fix it. THANKS!!!
  13. Hey folks, another time got some problems while developing RAW files from my Panasonic GX80. Weil loading the *.rw2 file to AP sometimes (not ever) something really weird is happening. Look at the landscape orientation photo in the screenshot. It is split in the middle vertical line and the left part is duplicated to the right side... Sound really crazy and it is... Same thing happens with the portrait oriented photo ... In this case the lower half is multiplied to the upper part of the pic. (see screenshot attached with the comparison opening the same file with MacOS Preview). Actually I'm using AP 1.6.6 on a MacBook with macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 Hope somebody can give me hand solving this issue If someone needs one of the raws to test just let me know!

    Sony ARW shows a scattered image

    Hello - when I open a Sony ARW file I get something that looks like the attached. Is this a bug or is it a setting I need to apply? Kr - Philippe
  15. Affinity photo is great. But something I really miss when editing raw files is the possibility to adjust tone, saturation and luminance of the picture by colors. This is something that you can easily do on Lightroom and that I´d really like to find here in order to process my raw files completely with Affinity photo. I attach a picture of this feature in Lightroom for ipad. Thanks!
  16. I know there was an issue a bit ago with Sony A7iii RAW files not opening, and Affinity mentioned it was an iOS issue. iOS now has the Sony A7iii on their list of supported files, and rather than just bringing a black screen when I open RAW files from the camera, now it just crashes the app entirely. Anyone else having the same issue?
  17. Is there a way to copy and paste edits to do a batch of RAW files? I want to apply the same edits across a few RAW files taken. I know there is a MACRO function and arent sure if this is what Im looking for.
  18. Hello fellow Affinity iPad users! i just bought the Affinity Photo App for my iPad Pro 9.7“. I already love it! However I encountered one weird problem: There are random tiny dots visible on my imported RAW files (RW2, Panasonic Lumix G7). You can see what I mean in the photo I have uploaded below. Does anyone know where that could come from? As for now it isn‘t that much of a problem as I can remove the dots with the clone tool, however it is quite annoying if you have to edit multiple photos and have to go searching for the little dots first and remove them all first. if you need more information to help me with my problem, just tell me, I‘ll try to be as precise as possible. EDIT: The dots appear only in Affinity, when I import and export the RAWs with another software, there are no dots visible at all. EDIT 2: I have now found out that the dots are so called „Stuck Pixels“. I tried the Pixel Refresh option my camera provides that actually claims to solve stuck Pixel Problems but that didn‘t work - it actually made it worse I believe. I‘m a bit concerned - I have spent my money onAffinity and really want to use it but this makes it pretty much unusable for me... Thank you for every answer! Greets, Sarah (infinabey)
  19. Hi there, I am absolutely new here and hopefully you are not bored hearing my concerns. My wife‘s got a Macbook Pro 13“, 8GB, SSD, i5, early 2015 and workes with latest version of affinity. When loading more than 7 RAW files, nothing goes on and system hangs up. Due to the fact, that this MacBook is proberly not one of the most perfomance, she bouht an iMac Retina 5K, 27“, i5 3,5GHz, 8GB RAM an 1TB Fusion Drive, late 2017. First perception: Loading pics in RAW is about twice as fast as the MacBook when loading between 1 and 6 pics (5 pics: 20seconds vs 40 seconds). But the disappointment follows immediately: When loading more than 6 pics (i.e. 10 or 14), than the iMac also hangs up. That seems to be the same on MacBook and iMac. So, what is going on? Do we need more RAM, i.e additional 32GB? Need your advice !! I don‘t think, that a much more performance machine would help, i.e i7 am 64GB mit 1TB SSD. That would be the most performance iMac. To pre-answer your questions, why she needs so many pics parallel at the same time: she wants to use it as a picture browser to choose, which of the pics is worth to work on. I think, there must be another way to do so. Is there a picture browser embedded to affinity? So, hope to hear from you soon. Thanks in advance. Stefan
  20. Hello.When I make Photos with my 2000d in Raw and put These in Affinity Photo it always get pink. In Canon Digital Photo Professional 4 it dont. Can you please help me?
  21. Hello, my RW2 files all have stuck pixels in Affinity Photo. Please incorporate an automatic Pixel Mapping Feature in the future because removing all of these with the clone tool is a pain and makes Affinity unusable when editing multiple photos. No other photo editing app with RAW support that I tried has this problem so there must be a way to incorporate it for sure! Please, I really want to use Affinity for my Photo Editing! Greets, infinabey
  22. Hi, My Affinity-edited photos as seen on others' devices & a calibrated projector have come out EXTREMELY over exposed. They look fine on my monitor. I have calibrated the monitor. Someone noticed the 'profile' dropdown in the Develop persona is set my default to Adobe RGB. I was told that this should always be sRGB. I can't find a way to update the default to one of the sRGB settings permanently. I have been doing my RAW conversion in Cannon's DPP as 1) RAW files don't have thumbnails & look terrible (under exposed & under saturated) in Affinity as my camera (Canon 77D) is not yet recognised by Affinity & 2) DPP has an easy way to 'fix' under & over exposed parts of the image that Affinity can't do as well as being able to view the RAW images. I then do further processing in Affinity. It appears that I will need to go into the Develop persona & change the 'profile' value before developing & exporting the image every time. Is this a common problem? Is the fix correct? Does this relate at all to my camera not being recognised? (also is there an ETA / release when this camera will be included?) I can't provide a screen dump of the images as seen by others as they look fine on my monitor but very embarrassing showing images at my camera club . Any enlightenment would be appreciated . Thanks Julie
  23. Hi If I develop a raw file in the develop persona including tonal, black and white points, shadows and highlights and sharpening, etc.. then go to the photo persona. Do you then do more adjustments to the same or should I leave things as they are (newbie!) Also, if I have sharpened in Develop, do I sharpen again for print? Or is it just down to personal choice. Just looking for some general guidelines I guess! Thanks....

    Fuji .RAF RAW image sliver issue

    In the past I have had no issues with .RAF Fuji Raw files, from both my X-100F, and more recently my X-T3, but in the past couple days when opening RAW files all I get is this sliver of the image, with a black bar at the top. the information shows the image is only 6.30 MP. Same thing happens when opening in Designer, however the full image opens just fine in Preview and Pixelmator. Someone please help!!!
  25. Hi there, I just purchased affinity and imported RAW (CR2) files but it looks like Affinity doesn't support it. The images displayed on Affinity are pinkish in colour. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the Canon 6D Mark II I had recently bought. I wouldn't think it's the SD card because that would save what type of files we select. There's no issues importing jpeg files. Does anyone have a solution to this? Thanks in advance. Nick
