[By Design] .CR2 file not opening properly

Recommended Posts

Hi christian_mit_ch,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Have you "edited" the RAW's in any third party software? Affinity Photo is just opening the original RAW files you shoot without any adjustments you may have made in other apps or camera. Currently it doesn't support XMP sidecar files where these adjustments are usually stored.

when I try to open a .CR2 File, all the se4ttings are set to Default. For example a monochrome is colored.


Those images are shot in B&W on your 7D but that is simply a Canon Picture Style which is applied to the RAW file. Anything else, apart from DPP, will recognize it as a RAW file which contains all the sensor data which is in color not B&W.
