NEF Photo imported from Photos appears with huge pixels


Recommended Posts

Hi to the Affinity community,

I am trying to process some RAW files from a Nikon D610 (NEF) and after importing the pictures from the memory card to Photos, I import them inside Affinity Photo.

The issue I have is that the pictures are imported like if there is no resolution at all, looking like giant pixels.

Here is attached 3 files:

1. The display of the image in Photos

2. The message seen during the import of the picture from Photos

3. The result of the Import

Does anyone have seen such behavior before and is there a way to fix it?

My version of Affinity Photo is: 1.9.2.CFA27F53-B303-40F8-8492-256E899DE3CF.thumb.jpeg.d13d996061c898a566064e69dd225108.jpeg

There is a known bug which results in the jpg image 'placeholder' being loaded instead of the raw file. If I remember correctly you can drag the image and drop it onto the AP app icon or the apps Home Screen and it will open correctly. There is a beta version available that includes some fixes for NEF files. Maybe try that? It loads in addition to the store version soyou won’t lose any work🙂

Drag up photos to open over top of AP. Then select image drag and drop onto Home Screen.

I tried the beta version of Affinity Photo and it does not bring any improvement for the big pixels on some of my NEF files.

I get the same behavior as described above and this is annoying. I am starting to regret having chosen Affinity Photo instead of Lightroom CC.

Anything else we can do or try?
