  1. Hello all, I've been behavior I just can't explain. I've seen this on the iPad version and now on the desktop version. Example: I have two images I brought in as a stack, I did auto-align (tried with and without the live align).... I see the stack, I open it up and can see the individual layers, one on top of the other. The blend modes are all set to Normal. For some reason, the lower layers are bleeding through and showing through the topmost layer, even with no masking, etc.....and I'm at a loss to see why? I'm used to PS, where if you stack 2 layers, with nomal blend modes, the top one completely obscures the lower one, unless you mask it off, or have other blend modes enabled. I'm guessing something is set different in AP, I just don't know how to get the behavior I'm expecting. Right now, with both images there...I have them both turned on, again, expecting the top image to completely obscure the bottom one...but it looks strange, and if I turn off the lower layer...the top one becomes to look as it should be without the bottom one bleeding into it. The images I've tried on desktop are .tiff images....the ones on the Ipad that did the same strange thing, were from an iphone emailed to me. Can someone help me out here? I'm just wanting to stack 2 images, and not have the bottom one(s) show through unless I mask out the top later.... Thanks in advance, CC
  2. I have been experimenting with stacks in AP and have now succeeded in getting results with Focus Merge and HDR Merge, and just using plain stacks with a manual approach. They all work, though on my Mac the best results (not too many so far) seem to be with Focus Merge. What I can't seem to do is to use RAW format files, either mixed with other RAW files, or with jpgs. I tried generating jpgs from RAW to do a merge with stacks of such generated files, but that doesn't seem to work well either, as the photo size appears to change, so the result - if any - looks more like a montage of different photos than a proper merge. Am I trying to do something which AP is not designed to do, or is there a bug. On some photos the merge approach across a whole bunch of photos works better than any single one by itself, but on other single shots which are already quite good as jpgs I think the best results may be to switch to RAW mode if relevant files are available and optimise just the one shot. I may be able to post links to photos if there is any interest, though so far there are only a few worth looking at.
  3. Very disappointed. I'll be honest, I only really bought Affinity to do one job, which was to remove 'object/people' from Photos. Having bought it yesterday, I tried the stack/median method and I took three photos using a tripod ensuring my subject (stuffed monkey) placed in three separate positions to make sure the background content was clear (i.e. no overlapping of subject). I now attach the result.You can see my subject in at least 2 locations. Any ideas, before I try and get my money back!
  4. I'm using Capture One Pro 10 (MacOS 10.12.6) for my raw converter. Using the "Edit In..." selection in Capture One allows me to open my files in Affinity Photo and saves the changes back to the PSD or TIFF file created in the process. If I do this with multiple files for stitching, Affinity opens them in tabs, but I can't select the open images as the source for stitching. It would be nice to be able to select multiple open files from the panorama, hdr, focus merge or stack selection tools. Thanks, Phil
  5. I'm using Capture One Pro 10 (MacOS 10.12.6) for my raw converter.

If I do this with multiple files for stitching, Affinity opens them in tabs, but I can't find anyway to select the open images as the source for stitching. Is there some way to select open files for panos and merges? I can export the files and open them from the selection box but that kind of makes a mess of my workflow. Thanks!
  6. Presently I don't see a way to make multiple iPhoto Selections for Stacks. Once I've made a single selection I have to go back into iPhoto, remember where I was and select the next. This can't be meant, surely? There has to be a better selection process that doesn't close iPhoto after making my first iPhoto Stack photo. I have Corel PSP Ultimate, AFTERSHOT PRO, Pixelmator and am now enjoying the freedom of Affinity Photo. Please advise. Grazie
  7. Hello & HNY! I have been experimenting with the stacks, focus merge and HDR/Tonemap modules and I have some questions. Stacking multiple images that may or may not line up perfectly and I like the stack blend methods and either Median or Average seem to give me the best blend but typically there are only two or three files to a stack. I would like to be able to use the de-ghosting tool from the HDR merge when using the stack module. Is there a way to use the stack blend modes with the manual de-ghosting in the HDR module? I checked Live Alignment and added a Mask layer to each image but nothing seemed to show up. Using stacks is a very new thing for me as I only learned about it in an Affinity Photo tutorial video. Would greatly appreciate more information on using them. Thank you for your time! Have a great new year! Lisa in Atlanta
  8. Hello & HNY! I have been experimenting with the stacks, focus merge and HDR/Tonemap modules and I have some questions. I have stereographs that I have scanned and I want to merge them into a 3D-ish/HDR-type image. I have tried many different approaches but because they are just a bit off on the perspective and framing, I have a terrible ghosting problem. I like the stack blend methods and either Median or Average seem to give me the best blend but typically there are only two files to a stack. I would like to be able to use the de-ghosting tool from the HDR merge when using the stack module. Is there a way to use the stack blend modes with the manual de-ghosting in the HDR module?

  9. I have been using Photoshop to create full color pictures from B&W images (based on19th Century science). Cannot figure out how to turn off red, blue, or green, in color separations loaded into stacks with Affinity. In Photoshop, I can turn off blue and green for red layer, red and green for blue layer, and blue and red for green layer. The result is a color image.Have attached screen shot of dialog box that allows this in Photoshop. Is there a simple way to do this in Affinity? Thanks!
  10. Hi, I get these weird results when stacking a bunch of raw DNG files. It seem like files lose all the detail and get pixelated. Here's an example with only one image in stack selected - it still looks corupted. If I convert files to tiff manually (e.g. open raw>click develop>export to tiff) and then stack tiff files everything works as expected: So is there a problem while handling DNG files or am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
  11. Hello everyone! I'm new to Affinity Photo! I'm playing around, experimenting with some shots I taken for a time lapse video, and I was wondering if there's a way to add photos to a stack after I created it (i.e. not in the "New stack" window). I've found I can right click on single photos on a stack to remove them, but couldn't find a way to add new photos to stacks, any tip? thanks in advance, gerlos
  12. I was wondering if Affinity Photo offers a capability to edit one photo ,and use it as a preset to instantly edit multiple photos with that preset for time-lapse purposes.In lightroom you can do it ,but can you do it in Affinity Photo?
  13. Hello everyone, Photo enthusiast here, I got this hobby about a year ago. I was looking for an alternate app to photoshop (I just hate the subscription model). I am practicing with a few techniques that I am learning throughout the web like duplicity, hdr, panning and blending. I like to take pictures of landscapes but I still cannot figure out how to open multiple exposures so they can be stacked, aligned, and blended together. Can this be done in affinity photo? Also, for those experts out there, we would appreciate it if you start flooding the web with tutorials about different techniques with affinity. Great app...! Thanks...!
