unable to perform HDR Merge using .afphoto files

Recommended Posts

I used Affinity Photo to convert three raw files to afphoto files.  I then tried to create an HDR image by adding the three .afphoto files, but none of them would show up in the add dialog.

Two questions:

  1. are .afphoto files really not supported for HDR merge?
  2. if the answer to 1 is true, what is a good workflow to go from raw to HDR?

Hi David,

Welcome to the forums.


Affinity Photo files can't be used with HDR Merge, if you're editing your RAW files first you could export them to 8/16Bit TIFF. Then use these images for the HDR Merge.

Thank you for the answer and the suggestion, Lee.  I do hope the ability to use .afphoto files will be added in the future.  It would allow for a much simpler workflow in this sort of situation.
