I am thinking that this is a bug with Affinity Photo. This issue is happening with only some images saved in Photoshop. So this could be a bug with Affinity Photo. Some Images I am able to open properly.

It may be a bug, as you say.

On the other hand, we know that Photoshop has functions that embed proprietary (non-standard) forms of data into the otherwise standard TIFF format. And we know that Affinity Photo can not handle all forms of Photoshop's proprietary data, because, well, it's proprietary and undocumented.

So it's also possible that you're able to use the images from Photoshop where you didn't use any Photoshop-specific features, and not able to use the ones where you did use some.

I am still convinced, it is not a bug in Affinity Photo.
A big advantage of TIFF is the possibility of a lossless compression (LZW, ZIP)
A minor drawback lies in the complexity of the properties of the TIFF format, which are only partially supported by all graphics programs.. (eg. saving alpha channels and layers in Photoshop)

I did not get a chance to perform the test mentioned but I think if this can be fixed in Affinity Photo then it will help us a lot for folks who want to save files in Tiff format.

I know lot of photographers who use Tiff format and I want  to do the same.
