HDR Merge with DNG files does not apply lense corrections

Recommended Posts

Affinity Photo Windows Desktop v1.7.1.404

When using the 'New HDR Merge...' function, DNG image lense corrections are not applied during file load/merge process. 


1. File > New HDR Merge...
2. Click Add, select 2 or more DNG files
3. Click Ok
4. HDR image will not have lense correction applied(hdr_lense_missing.JPG) when compared to single DNG image opened using the standard File > Open

Hi @dligocki,

Welcome to the forums. 

HDR merge has got a simplified pipeline and will not access the full RAW engine. This is the correct and expected behavior. We always recommend processing your RAW files before any other operations.
