Re: Affinity Photo 1.7 beta

One issue with Affinity Photo is that there is no lens correction support for the wonderful 12-100 F4 Pro lens "out of the box".

However, there is a new tutorial about adding lens profiles -

Essentially, IT WORKS! The trick is to locate the file called mil-olympus.xml in the zip and drop it into the correct folder, as shown in the video. That is for a Mac. On my Windows system the folder that opens when you click the "Open Lens Profile Folder in Explorer..." button is called C:\ProgramData\Affinity\Photo\1.0\LensProfiles. Drop the xml file in that folder, restart Affinity, load your raw file and bingo!

If anyone is having problems, PM me and I can email you the xml file.

It adds support for a number of the newer Olympus lenses. If you use Panny lenses, drop mil-panasonic.xml in the folder as well. And misc.xml has the Laowa 7.5mm f/2.0 which I also have.
EDIT: I haven't worked out how to use the Laowa correction data yet!
