HDR Merge on iPad Pro 3rd Gen introducing Noise

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have just started using Affinity Photo on the iPad Pro so I am very new to this software. Mainly using Affinity Photo to merge bracketed photos taken with a drone (Mavic Air DJI) and have had intermittent issues with the software introducing unwanted noise in the merged photos.

Sometimes the issue will go away once I do a reset on the iPad, however most of the time the noise will remain, even after another attempt at HDR merge.

I would love to see this issue resolved, so thank you in advance!

 

PS: attached are the bracketed shots to be used for your tests.

Hi @benson_teo,

Welcome to the forums

I have raised this issue with our QA team to be investigated, in the meantime as a work around you can export you dng files as 16bit tiff files and when you HDR merge these files you will not get the random extra noise being added.

Hmmm, I hope there’s a fix for this. I bought Affinity Photo to be able to shorten my workflow with the iPad, not lengthen it with an additional export. But thanks for the reply!

Hi @DWright,

I have tried to export the DNG files to TIFF using the batch export tool, however this action rendered the single file with the same noise pattern as HDR merge.

Just an update for you. Will there be other workarounds that I can try to alleviate this issue?

Thank you in advance once again!

We do have plans to include the noise reduction that is in the desktop version to the iPad one but at the moment I do not know when this will be added
