Hello, I am new to Affinity and a bit confused to how to save DNG edits in Affinity Photo. My workflow when I was using Photoshop was to first convert my raw Nikon images in Adobe DNG Converter, open the dng file into Adobe Camera Raw to edit, then open into Photoshop. If I was to close that photoshop file without saving, I could re-open the dng file (back into Camera Raw and my previous edits would be saved.

So I have opened a dng file into Affinity Photo 2 on iMac, it opens up in develop persona and I make my edits. I then click develop (raw layer embedded) and if I close the file without saving, and re-open that dng file again, the edits aren't saved.

Is this normal behaviour?

Is there a way to save the dng edits without making an affinity save file?

Lee.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

DNG is not an output format for Affinity Photo (or other Affinity applications). You need to Save your file as a .afphoto file after you Develop it, if you want to save your edits in a way that you can continue editing later. Your original RAW file remains unaltered,.
