Red pixels appear on my pictures after being imported from Photos

When importing some pictures in Affinity Photo I can see a red dot which appears in the middle of the picture which was not present on the initial picture.

Below are the 2 same images:

1. The original duck in Photos

2. The imported duck in Affinity Photo

Does anyone have seen this problem before? How can we fix it?

I am using a Nikon D610 and my version of Affinity Photo is 1.9.2.236

Some camera software may automatically 'correct' highlighted pixels. Affinity will show highlights and clipped shadows as red or yellow so it may be that? You can toggle show highlights and shadows on or off in the Commands menu.

Just the one photo from that camera with red dot?

Could you attach the raw image to the post for further testing?

Unfortunately no, it appears on other pictures as well.

I suspect the issue is a pixel on the sensor as it appears in same location. Your camera software may remove this. Affinity shows all image data hence it is showing up. Easy to fix with inpainting brush or blemish removal tools.

Thanks for your feedback,

I contacted Nikon France who had my camera just before I started to go on vacations and when I talked about the red dots they told me to bring back the camera to the store for another check.

Looks like they may have done something bad on my sensor in the end. When I return home early in August I’ll check that and keep you all posted about the results 😉
