Hello DeadDragon,

since you mentioned me, Affinity Photo is to a certain grade with what it provides with a bit of trickery of layers, styles and blendings able to mimic the result of Normalmaps. Serif did imo a great job so far in providing the tools and its up to us users to bend the tools to get results which developers haven´t implemented. ;)



For turning images easily into normalmaps without a lot of manual editing, there would be quite a need for far stronger macro abilities, so far I wasn´t able to get further in the image conversion than what you can see in the below image.



you could also give, if you have an Nvidia card in your device, the NVIDIA Texture Tools for Adobe Photoshop a chance, it can break and is quite old but it somehow seems to work a bit with Affinity Photo. https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-texture-tools-adobe-photoshop
