Does Affinity Photo edit RAW files?

Recommended Posts

I’m absolutely puzzled and surprised. So many people rave about Affinity Photo being better than Photoshop but at least photoshop can open and edit raw files. I have spent the last hour staring at the screen with a RAW file loaded and I cannot fathom what (if anything) I can do with it. 

Maybe I’m wrong but I’m guessing Affinity Photo is not capable of working with RAW files?

Hope I’m wrong.

Thank you but I am asking about the iPad version.

When I open a RAW file in AP on iPad I’m in dev mode apparently but none of the sliders do anything to the image.

The split view button is available at the bottom, along with develop and discard... but none of the developer sliders do anything... I really don’t get it.

It may just be the type of RAW file, some are not compatible.  I hope the video will assist you or you can post the camera and type of RAW file and other forum members may offer you assistances.  Great knowledge base on this forum, unfortunately I have limited knowledge.

Thank you. I could not find that walk through. Strange that I could not work with the RAW file I opened yesterday as it is a standard NIKON NEF file.

Oh well. This video is really helpful.

Thanks again.

Possibly it's a format of NEF file that Apple does not yet support, especially if it's from a new camera model. It would also help to know what version of iOS you're running on your iPad.

If you tell us what model of Nikon camera, and your iOS version, we can perhaps check that. Also, if you can upload an image here that might be helpful.

It's ok. I got it working. The iPad works fine with NEF files. For some reason this image wouldn't edit (none of the sliders changed it) but when I cancelled and started again after several attempts (closed and reopened AP) it worked.
