Cannot select open images for HDR, Stack, Panorama, etc

Recommended Posts

AF Photo for Windows v 1.5.2.69

Sorry if this has been asked before.

I am coming from being a LR/PS user and currently use Capture One and using Affinity Photo in place of PS.  A huge frustration and fiddly time waster is the apparent inability of AF to use open image files for panorama stitching, hdr, stacking, etc without having to use the browse to find the image files on their drive, directory, folder and then hope you have the correct ones.  I do a substantial number of multi file stacks/blends in my work. In PS there is a script for using open files and is very easy to select the open files.  Is there a macro or a function I am missing.  My "edit with" in Capture one properly opens the files in AF, however, that appears to be as far as I can go with using multiple open files.

I really like much of AF, however, I have been resorting to my old PS CS6 to do most of the above simply because it is easy to select the open files and then do the HDR, Panorama or stack. Hopefully I don't have to continue with PS and give up AF.

Thanks for any help or suggestions or preferably a macro to fix this.

Hi Bob,

Currently you have to browse/import the images after selecting the particular merge or stack that you want to create. Having an option to select already opened files has been suggested and may be add in a future update/version.

Hi, Second this option. Also a Lightroom and CS6 user and to export images direct from Lightroom and back saves a lot of time. Thankyou. Russ

This software https://www.panoramastitcher.com/ allows me to drag and drop images directly from Capture One into their interface and then renders the pano.

No file picker, no dialog box.  Perhaps this can be implemented in Affinity?

This one interface problems prevents me from using the product and I will _not_ purchase again pending a better interface.

Thanks.
