Hi KumAffinity, welcome to the forums.

 

Would you like to elaborate a bit more on your question? As tethering to me, means linking a mobile phone to a laptop.

I suspect KumAffinity must mean, having Affinity "watch" a folder where image files are being placed as they are shot from a camera connected to the computer in question through USB or WiFi or Bluetooth or whatever.

 

I don't use that, since I run Nikon Camera Control Pro 2 but setting up a watched folder, and downloading directly to a laptop (instead of an in-camera flash card) is the preferred way to shoot for some situations.

 

As for, I managed to get my hands on Disc copies of Photoshop 6 (and Illustrator) so I'm good for a while there, BUT, what I am really interested in now is AFFINITY PUBLISHER!!!

Tethering, in applications like Lightroom, allows you to control the camera configuration from the computer, view the live image on screen and take the shot.  The file is then immediately uploaded into the programme for editing.

 

It's arguably more appropriate for a DAM programme rather than a photo editor like AP.

Do you shoot Canon? If so, the CD that came with it has software to allow tethering. If you already have Aperture, you also have tethering capabilities for a large number of cameras.

I replied this in an other similar question thread…

 

— "Is it possible to add this in Affinity Photo?"

 

As AP is developing to a very serious pixel editor, going
the tethered way would not, IMHO, be meaningful. One
will shoot tethered to see the recorded files in real time
and tweak all pre SR parameters. Affinity's chosen di-
rection, as I see it, is to operate post SR.

 

For tethered shootings, a dedicated RAW converter with
a proper tethered shooting sessions feature is the right
way to go.

 

 

— "…would such a feature belong in a cataloguing program?"

 

In no way! I am not using catalogues anywhere in my pro-
auction nor do I teach or recommend to use them.

 

As I said before, for tethered shootings, a dedicated RAW
converter with a proper tethered shooting sessions feature
is the right way to go.

 

Through mine, I can (from the computer), controls remotely
both my shooting camera and all used Profoto flashes.
