How to read EXIF data from a .afphoto document

Recommended Posts

Re-posting in the right forum...

Can Serif  provides a suitable API for reading EXIF data from a Affinity Photo document (.afphoto) ?

Or has the Affinity Photo file format been documented somewhere so tools like NeoFinder can read these values of EXIF data ?

Thanks

In a way, your prior post was in the proper spot, @Awtd, as it was in Suggestions, and you start out asking if Serif can provide a new function :)

Yes, they could, if they decide they want to.

And no, the .afphoto file format is not documented. Though, apparently, some vendors have figured out how to read the thumbnails that Affinity Photo can store in the .afphoto file.

I have moved this thread back to Feature Requests as I feel it is a better fit there.

Thanks for the reply.  Mat I ask which vendors have figured out to read  Affinity Photo thumbnails ?

At least XnViewMP; I'm not sure which others.

I just downloaded XnViewMP. It can read Exif data from jpg, tiff and NEF(raw) file but can not read exif data from the afphoto file.  See attached screen shot.

Serif  why don't you make available an API to read the exif data you have in afphoto document ? Why don't you publish your file format ?  That would allow application like XnViewMP and NeoFinder to get read access to your affinity document and many people would benefit from it.... Be opened

Well on Macs (OS X) they can reuse Apple's Quick Look for this (image thumb preview), since Serif already adds plugins for their Affinity file types to the OS. - They may have something like that for Win too, don't know or looked there, since I mostly use TC there and not Win Explorer.
