  1. This is a problem I've experienced occasionally over various versions of AP. It's random, but today it happened three times. Not sure what's causing it, and I can't seem to pinpoint — let alone solve — the issue. My workflow is to use TIFF files saved from my RAW developer of choice, DxO Photolab 4. I open those TIFFs in AP, add a number of layers, then re-save it as a TIFF by pressing "Cmd-S"; on the first save, it presents me with the option of "save with Affinity Layers", which I always choose. After that initial save, as I'm working I save periodically by pressing Cmd-S. Here's the problem: on occasion, AP will save that file and collapse the layers into the background pixel layer. When this happens, the file size shrinks from, say, 250mb (or more) down to 80mb (or less). The problem is that it doesn't necessarily include all the layers, leaving me with a file that often doesn't reflect some of the time-consuming edits I've done. I've been trying to diagnose the problem by deliberately triggering the behavior, but as yet haven't been able to. I'm not opening the TIFF in any other application other than AP, at least until I'm finished with it. The collapse always happens when I've used AP exclusively to open and save the file. Running 10.14.6 on an iMac; AP version is 1.8.4, but this has been happening over all versions in the last year. (I'd rather not save as a native AP file, because my DAM solution (digikam), along with some other apps, doesn't recognize Affinity files. It would also require a convoluted save process and increase the amount of space to keep both the TIFF and the AP file. This is an internal AP problem, not one of an interface with any other app.)
  2. I have encountered this same tiff error where half the image fails to load. This file is from digital camera utility 5. It opens normally on other software. Also other files with the same export settings from DCU5 work. This only seems to happen on specific files and when exporting to 16bit tiff. Any workaround?
  3. Screenshot file names provide description to go with the description below. TIFF file exported from Capture One has a very strong moire pattern in the couch fabric that the subjects are sitting on. The moire is not apparent when editing in Capture One, but it is evident in the TIFF file opened by 2 of 3 downstream programs. See the steps below. 2 of 4 (including Affinity Photo) if you include opening the tiff file in CO20. I am not sure where the issue is since it doesn't appear in XnViewClassic, nor in Capture One if you open the TIFF file in C20. Details and screenshots included. I develop a RAW file in Capture One 20 When satisfied I process it, export to tiff There is NO moire pattern in the Capture One application I open the tiff file in Affinity Photo and there is a brutal moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in Windows Photo Viewer and there is a brutal moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in XnViewClassic and there is no moire pattern in the couch I open the tiff file in Capture One 20 and there is no moire pattern in the couch Affinity Photo 1.8.5.703 Capture One Details: Build: 13.1.3.13 (78b6a17) System Details: OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation System Type x64-based PC Processor AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core Processor, 3600 Mhz, 6 Core(s), 12 Logical BIOS Version/Date American Megatrends Inc. 3.50, 2019-11-07 BaseBoard Product B450 TOMAHAWK MAX (MS-7C02) Platform Role Desktop Time Zone Pacific Daylight Time Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB Total Physical Memory 32.0 GB Available Physical Memory 22.4 GB Page File Space 4.75 GB [Display] Name NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Adapter RAM (1,048,576) bytes Driver NV_DISPSI.INF_AMD64_47A7EA3F1B25EDD7 <<Monitor>> Benq SW271 _8507812_-_2020-Oct-11_-_Dev_2020_10_19_10-53-24.tif _8507812_-_2020-Oct-11_-_Dev_2020_10_19_10-53-24.tif
  4. This is a very good Capture One Pro to Affinity Photo Roundtrip tutorial by Thomas Fitzgerald... Enjoy ...
  5. Hi there, from time to time I encounter TIFF files that contain multiple "pages". E.g. our HP scan software produces multi-page TIFF files when scanning multiple pages, instead of saving each page into a separate file. Reading about this online this seems to be known either as "multipage TIFF" or "TIFF sub-files". Apple Preview handles those files as expected similar to multi-page PDFs displaying all images in the sidebar. To open the multiple pages in Affinity Designer or Photo, the only way right now seems to re-save the TIFF into single files using Preview, via drag-and-drop out of the sidebar into Finder. I'd love if opening those files was handled in a way similar to multi-page PDFs instead. Right now Affinity Designer and Photo both only open the first page, never even acknowledging that there is more. Attached is such a TIFF containing two pages, right out of the afforementioned HP scan software. Kind regards -- Peter Scannen0001.tif
  6. HI, I have artwork in my print project. The client also wants it as an image in the same size but 150ppi. After exporting to tiff, I have a 300ppi image (because the project was for printing) and I have to reshape it! Maybe add a checkbox for the resolution of the exported image, please.
  7. Hi, Today I tried to export a graphic in 32bit RGB + transparency tiff, both in Affinity Designer and Photo. In both cases the files opened blank in Photoshop... it would be great to have this fixed! For now I am content with 16bit exports. Thanks, Shivadas
  8. When I open a file created to Photoshop 2020 'export layers to files psd or tiff format, I do not see the correct image in Designer or Photo (version 1.8.3.641), yet if I open the same file in DXO Photo I see the correct results. Also, if I drag a number of pdf files as layers I do not see anything, but if I open the file individually I see the 'correct' image. _0004_red tie.pdf 0003_pink tie.pdf
  9. Good morning, If I export a TIFF and try to open it in Olympus Workspace, the TIFF is not accessible. TIFFs generated using Helicon Focus or Photoshop Elements run without any problems. Can anybody help? Thanks in advance, GM
  10. After processing JPEG and TIFF files in Affinity Photo for Windows, I can no longer open the files in Nikon Capture NX-D. However, the same files will open in other programs such as Picture Window Pro, Windows Photo Viewer, & On One. Any suggestions? Thank you.
  11. Hi, Using latest 1.8.3.641 on Win10-64, I try to HDR-merge 3 TIFF files, and the program crashes (closes abruptly with no message) early during the merge process, if auto-align is enabled. The TIFF files were exported by Capture One 20, originally from Olympus E-M1II RAW files. Oddly, merging those original Olympus RAW files directly in Affinity Photo succeeds, but unfortunately chromatic aberrations are not corrected so it's not a valid option. I attached crash report files. e6321abd-9b84-42a3-9c80-3eecd079bf61.dmp attachment_Log.txt metadata
  12. hi you all, I rendered an image, but Affinity Photo displays it totally white, even Affinity Publisher. If I open the photo with windows photo viewer, I can see it. What should I do? Codec missing? Thank you
  13. Hi - new user here! I'm doing an ad for a local paper. I have set my document for the correct dimensions required by the paper's spec - 133x90mm - but when I export as a tiff I get a file that is way larger than what they want - it comes out as a tiff 1571 x 1063 pixels. Which I reckon is the correct proportions but they say is way too big - and it ceryainly is when I look at it Actuakl Size on my screen. I'm working at 300 dpi - might that be the problem? Any clues much appreciated. Cheers.
  14. Hi there! Ofesad here from Argentina. I have been using Affinity Photo for a couple of years now and I was quite happy with it. However with recent newer versions I feel it more... "fragile" and unstable when working with large files. I do a lot of photo restoration and archiving, wich means I have lots of 600dpi+ scans with huge resolutions and file sizes over 1Gb. Recently I was working in a photo for a client and I encoutered some issues with Affinity photo (I will do another post about others issues). I was trying to apply the noise reduction filter to the image, a 27607 x 10544 pixels 600dpi TIFF / 1.63Gb (compressed) scan, the menu appears, click apply, wait and the program will just close itself. No error, nothing. I reinstalled Affinity Photo and tryed again, same result. Also, when working with uncompressed TIFF the software became even slower. Anyone had similar problems? Solutions? I recently upgraded my pc's graphics card and processor, my new pc is: AMD Ryzen 3700 16gb DDR4 3200mhz Nvidia RTX 2060 Super Wacom Intuos Medium Pro BenQ PD2700Q Monitor
  15. I have a label design in Affinity Designer with a tiff image. Tiff image is colored with Pantone in AD. When I export to PDF, tiff color changes to CMYK. All vector objects with Pantone color export as expected, only tiff has the problem. Am I doing something wrong?
  16. I scanned some negatives using an Epson perfection v700. The negatives are black and white 120mm images. When I try to open the tiff file created by the Epson scan software, Affinity Photo V1.7.3 immediately crashes. The log file shows that Thread 2 crashed. Attached is the log file and the tiff image file that caused the app to crash, as well as a screen capture of the info on the tiff file. I've repeated this crash with multiple tiff files.

  17. Hi Affnity, Hi Forumers! I (ab)use Affinity Photo to edit my astrophoto, I find Affinity Photo a great piece of software! However I'm facing a problem that I can't solve: the tiff files out of AP don't work in any star stacking software. I tested Sequator, Starry landscaper, Deep sky star stacker, Iris and Siril. All report the message "unable to read files". Strange, because with jpgs everything flows. I wrote some line to the developers and that is the answer I had: "TIFF is not fully standardized. Although they are called TIFF, some formats or fields may be incompatible. Sequator uses the most popular TIFF library, but there may be still some proprietary fields the library can not recognize." Any hint, idea, suggestion you could provide? Thanks a lot for your help! G:
  18. My customer demands an uncompressed TIFF file. What do I do? It's not for me to discuss with the customer if uncompressed TIFF files makes sense or not - if the customer wants it I'll have to deliver it! What do I do? Does AP force me to load the compressed TIFF to PS and save it as uncompressed TIFF file from there? Cheers, Timo
  19. Hello, I am a new user. Working on my first photo and when I export a jpeg using the "Best Quality" preset, my image has these strange large pixelations that are not present in the original. It is also happening when I export a Tiff. However, pdf export correctly. Files are attached. I am working from a RAW photo taken on Sony A7s. Help would be greatly appreciated. I am thrilled with the app so far aside from this hiccup. Hanalei Pier.tiff Hanalei_Pier.pdf
  20. Hey all, I'm struggling to create and export an Alpha Channel from Affinity Photo (v1.7.1.404) to a CMYK .TIFF image. The image has been masked out and I'm trying to make a named Alpha Channel to be used as a Spot Colour for digital print in an Onyx RIP (To be names 'Spot 1' which refers to a Spot White Ink). Please see the attached screenshot for the masked out area which I'm talking about. I've followed several other posts and YouTube/Vimeo video's and it's just not clicking for me. The image will export as a .TIFF but it won't export an Alpha Channel no matter what I try. Methods I have tried: 1. Mask out areas, on the 'Selection raster Alpha' channel, right click, and 'Create Spare Channel' and name it 'Spot 1' 2. In the layers under Adjustments, create and Channel Mixer and pull up the Alpha slider. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for your help!
  21. Hello, I'm unable to open tiff files saved with layers. So far I have lost two photos after processing. I tried opening in other software like GIMP and ImageMagik, one files reports invalid tag, and the other does not open at all. For now, I'm now saving all files to .afphoto instead of tiff, but would like to store layers in tiff (one color and one monochrome layer). Thanks for your consideration advance.

  22. Hello, First a disclaimer. I am using PS CS6 as a raster editing software in my workflow. It's working well.. Unfortunately, due to Adobe's policy it has to be replaced in a new feature. Moreover, it may not work on upcoming MacOs. I've been looking at Affinity Photo since version 1.0... it looked really great on paper. However, each version just massively disappointed me. It's missing the basics... Please remember, I'm speaking about my needs, which may not be yours.. I'm aware the software may work for some... However it does not for me. Many of my colleagues works the same way. Let's list some issues: Missing proper Tiff support. To get integrated in my work flow, the software needs to open and save tiff seamlessly. Affinity can not "Save as... (tiff)". Sure, it can export.. but this is not the same thing Now.. if one open a Tiff, do the editing and "Save": After some warning requester it works. However, if I do the same but quit the app, Affinity will offer me to "Save" the file, but it will actually want to save it as afphoto and not tiff.. The icon "New Group" does not work if no layers is selected. However, the same command, new Group, work from the menu. (Do you test your software ?) Mask feather: About 50 times slower as PS and limited to 100 px. It's so slow that you can not get any preview.. Mask... Well. I tried yesterday about one hour. I could not understand how they works. I could not create any Group mask. Most of the time I do NOT see the mask in the layers panel. and if it does, it's very difficult to see I created a curve layer with simple mask (with a selection). Then I painted using the brush in white to extend the mask -> this action actually removes part of the mask .. (????). Well, it's also bout 5 times slower as PS Level tool still does not work. In order to get the clipping preview (press alt), pro channel one need to set the master level at least at 1%.. Changing the brush size and hardness is not practical (it only shows a few circles but not the gradient of the actual brush..) and it's super laggy That's it... I did not tried yet path.. Affinity: I think this are basic features which photographers (imo) needs every day.. Without Affinity is jus useless.. Thanks for your understandings
  23. I'm using Affinity Photo 1.6.4 on a Windows 7-64 bit Home Premium machine. I have some TIFFs that Affinity Photo does not open correctly--even though Windows Photo Viewer, DxO PhotoLab, and GIMP open them fine. For whatever it may matter, these TIFFs are grayscale instead of RGB, and are 16 bits per pixel. Opening the file brought up the Develop persona instead of the Photo persona. The file displayed completely wrong--grossly over-exposed, high contrast, like somebody had grabbed the top right of the tone curve and dragged it almost all the way to the left edge (while leaving it at the top). The first attachment is a screen capture from immediately after opening the file. The second attachment is a screen capture of the same file opened in Windows Photo Viewer, which displayed it correctly. Back to the Affinity screen capture. Note the histogram at top right, which seems to correspond to what I see. Maybe more significantly, note the "RGBA/32 (HDR) - RAW" text toward the top left, which seems to be wrong. In other words, Affinity appears to be misconstruing what it's opening. Just as an experiment, I clicked Develop, but the image did not get fixed or even change appreciably. Also: this is a big file, over 150 MB and 80 MP (it's a scan of an old 8x10 negative). In case you want to experiment, the file's page at the U.S. Library of Congress is: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/det/item/2016796043/ and the direct location of the full-resolution TIFF is: http://cdn.loc.gov/master/pnp/det/4a20000/4a23000/4a23600/4a23684a.tif Thanks!
  24. Uncompressed tiff (16 bit grayscale), is the first really compatible format by Affinity. Please do not change it in the future. (Other tiff versions are less compatible.) Thanks, for effort to Affinity improve. Good job! (It would be great to add the default file extension settings TIF / TIFF)
  25. I'm fairly new to using Affinity Photo and I keep running into to this problem so I thought I would ask what I'm doing wrong. My file is a tiff file saved with layers, I'm using Mac OS 14 Mojave. I have tried saving both with the keyboard shortcut command S as well as going to the file drop down menu and choosing Save. The problem I continually seem to have is after I save I will keyboard shortcut command W to close (I have not done any additional work to the image) after I do a Save and I get stuck in a loop of having a new dialog box appear telling me there have been changes do I want to Save, Don't Save, or Cancel. I Save, try and close the file and that dialog box pops back up. Any insights what I am doing wrong? thanks, jeff
