Hey All:

In Photoshop Elements, there is an option to open any image in Camera Raw...is there anything like that in Affinity? I like it because gives the user an ability to effectively modify clarity, whites, blacks, shadows, etc., all in one place.

If not, is there something in Affinity that's better than 'Shadow/Highlights'?

Thanks all!

Affinity Photo is not a DAM, it is photo editor. Opening in Camera RAW can be set in Windows Explorer (it is file browser).


Affinity Store: Affinity Suite (ADe, APh, APu) 1.8.5.703.
Windows 10 Pro, Version 20H2, Build 19042.610.
Dell Latitude E5570, i5-6440HQ 2.60 GHz, 8 GB, Intel HD Graphics 530, 1920 x 1080.
Dell OptiPlex 7060, i5-8500 3.00 GHz, 16 GB, Intel UHD Graphics 630, Dell P2417H 1920 x 1080.
Intel NUC5PGYH, Pentium N3700 2.40 GHz, 8 GB, Intel HD Graphics, EIZO EV2456 1920 x 1200.

Sorry, I have no idea what your reply means. What's a D...A...M?

Photoshop elements allows users to manipulate any image (jpeg/PSD/Tiff etc) in the RAW editor...does Affinity have anything like that? I want an editor, not just a viewer. Thanks.

Hello @imagegod ,
Welcome to this forum.
Yes Affinity Photo can open RAW files, as well as JPEG, TIFF etc can be edited in Develop persona.
Download the 10-day trial and see if the program meets your needs.

 

Cheers

DAM is simply said a photo gallery, like Adobe Elements.

Then I would recommend you to buy the workbook from Affinity  or look at the tutorials by James Ritson.
