ON1 Photo RAW with Affinity Photo, best workflow???

Recommended Posts


Affinity Photo is now my main photo editing software.

I also like to use ON1 Photo RAW 2017 for some features,
especially the PHOTO FILE MANAGEMENT system. ( or Digital Asset Management )

Whenever I tell ON1 Photo RAW 2017 to edit the image in affinity photo, it opens the image in affinity photo brilliantly.  However, I am having trouble understanding what happens when I exit Affinity Photo to go back to ON1 Photo RAW 2017.   How can I keep the original and the edited file on the same folder in a way that makes sense?  Since ON1 Photo RAW 2017 doesn't recognize .afphoto format, it won't display it in the ON1 Photo RAW 2017 file browser/organizer.

Is anyone here using this same combination?  What is your workflow like when working from one of these apps to the other?  Especially when keeping everything non-destructive.

I use Luminar not On1 but saving your file as .tiff with layers is what I do with AP so I can always go back to modify if needed. 

Hi Mike,

That's actually a super idea.  I will give it a go and see how it goes.


thanks for the reply

your images will be bigger if you save them as .tiff

Nik software don't read NEF or RAW file so .tiff was a good alternative for me, personally it doesn't bother me, for what it cost today for a portable hard drive or an ssd harddrive as backup.
