Hello Team !

Just wanted to know at some stage Affinity Photo will support Lens Profile for devices like iPhones, Samsung Galaxy, Huawei, Pixel and Mi by Xiaomi ?
IN fact, today there a lot of people are shooting with their mobile phone because it is what they own and like but those devices doesn't produce RAW file the same way big brand does but some will produce HEIC, JPEG and TIFF files.

I know you focus on Pro and Expert but will it be possible for small creators to also be taken in consideration ?

Blessings

I think the issue is more than the use of lensfun. As I understand it, Photo only applies lens corrections to RAW files being processed by the Develop Persona, so without a phone that produces a RAW file there would be no way to get Photo to use the lens profile, even if it's in the lensfun database.

That's more an APh homemade usage limitation then, since the lensfun stuff itself could also be applied to bitmap images (the lenstool CPP API usage example demonstrates just this with a PNG). Meaning concrete here, that lensfun itself isn't usually restricted to be used just with RAW files.

Yes. I was merely pointing out that having the data in lensfun is not sufficient to satisfy the request.

The solution is to first open the jpeg in Lightroom first and make the lens correction there. I'm moving away from my Adobe software and prefer to make the move completely, I did install the LensFun profiles for my digital camera in Affinity Photo though. It was fast, easy, and works perfectly. I use my iPhone 7+ frequently and as of now I use Lightroom to correct the lens distortion. It's totally up to Serif to add mobile devices to the lens correction list. I'm committed to Affinity Photo, Design, and Publisher.
