Hi,

 

If Affinity Photo cannot find DPI metadata in the RAW file, it will assume 96dpi - this doesn't actually lose any resolution, as it's just metadata.

 

After developing you can change the DPI using Document -> Resize.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Andy.

Hi Andy,

 

Thank you for your reply!

 

If it doesn't change the dpi, would their be any reason to change it to 300 like you suggested?

 

Just curious..

I'm not sure why Serif is so set on using DPI in an image app. It makes little sense since DPI is a measurement used in the output device such as a plate making system for offset printing. Imaging apps use PPI or pixels per inch and Serif is unnecessarily complicating things. Worse still is the fact that the resize without resampling doesn't work correctly and the file will still import into InDesign as 72ppi. There needs to be some serious thought put into this before the next rev.

Try unchecking the "embedded metadata" export option.
