Cant Open .Nef Raw Files on iPad

Recommended Posts

Posting here to add to the .Nef file issue with the iPad version 1.8.2 of Affinity Photo. When I import the Raws from photos they open up as extremely pixelated, small sized files, with the message:
following message is displayed: “Assigned profile: Photo iPad assigned your working profile (sRGB IEC61966-2.1) to this unprofiled document” as a 120X160Px size file.


Is Affinity opening the thumbnail image for these filetypes? Im also noticing my images are flipped in some instances. Luckily my Google-FU led me here and I have been able to get into editing my raws using the drag and drop trick. 

I shoot Both D850 and D800 Nikon Cameras, hoping Devs can have this bug fixed soon.

Thanks!

Hey aceaperture,

This is a known bug. I will feed this back to the developers to let them know it is still an issue.

Welcome to the Affinity Forums :)

Hi! I have the same issue. RAW files have until now opened beautifully. But suddenly few days ago, as I had in mind to process photos of my new paintings for my website, the photos are opening in absolutely huge lumps of pixels. Same thing is still happening with photos I took yesterday and tried processing just now.

I hope it will get fixed soon. 

Thanks!

An observation that might or might not be helpful: landscape oriented NEF files loads as before in 1.8.2 and 1.8.3, but portrait oriented NEF files do not, as you get this pixelated image and a message. JPG formatted versions of the photos processed in camera do open in both orientations though.

Hey JacobMichelsen,

Thank you—I believe this was picked up by someone in Support and it looks like you've found the same. I'll pass this info on!

I am having exactly the same problem when importing NEF raw photos from the Apple Photos app.  The files are from a Nikon D7000 which I have imported directly onto my iPad using a sd card reader.  Landscape files are fine and import with the .NEF extension but portrait import with a .TIFF extension and look to be the lo res preview image created by the camera.

I have found a workaround, if I export the portrait NEF files from the photos app into iCloud (keeping them as raw format), then importing those NEF files into Afinity and it’s fine, so it seems afinity can correctly process the RAWs but not when imported from apple photos.
