Why does AP open my B&W scans as color "RAW" files?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm trying to understand why Photo opens my black and white scans as RAW color files. Has anyone else experienced this?

 

I'm using scans from Epson Scan 3.9.4 at grayscale/16bit and saving them as .tif files with an embedded Epson 1.8 Gamma grayscale profile. 

 

Tried opening them with both Photo Beta 1.5.2 beta 5 and official release Photo 1.5.1

 

thanks,
Marcus

Hi.  I have been having the exact same problem with 16 bit TIFF files created on my scanner.  When I open them in Affinity, it opens them as Raw files under the development tab.  This wouldn't be a problem except that it also changes the tones and makes them unuseable.

I'm having exactly the same problem with greyscale scans saved as TIFF files from  a Nikon scanner.  Has there been any solution published?

I have a similar issue (not so much a problem). I scan images in black-and-white and save as tiffs. Affinity Photo opens them automatically and declares them to be 8-bit RGB. Wouldn't it be nice if it could handle 1-bit images?
