JPEG and TIFF file formats



  • Cristian

    Hi Lilia,

    thanks for your explenation, it is verry clear. Could you now please suggest me, what's the best export format to work with Afiinity Photo in order to keep the files as editable as possible considering I can't go back/forward to Affinity keeping the file in my raw format ORF (Olympus).

    Hi Christian,


    Compared to JPEG, the TIFF format is lossless, so it preserves the maximum quality.

    After making all the necessary adjustments in Capture One, choose the TIFF format in the Process Recipe tool before processing the image. You can also read more about processing files in different formats in Capture One in this article -

    Based on the information on this page provided by Affinity Photo, you can import TIFF files into the Affinity Photo software (while ORF files can't be imported).

    I’m working with some stitched TIFFs (panos that are RAW-processed in C1, exported, stitched, and re-imported to C1 for final adjustments). Some of these files are very large, and I’m noticing that C1 only uses a single processor core for operations. Panning with the hand tool while zoomed in takes 30-60 seconds to update the screen. On my machine (top-spec 16-inch MacBook Pro) the same operation with a RAW file uses all cores and takes 6-7 seconds to update when zoomed in to 100 megapixel images.

    This seems like either a bug or some kind of configuration issue. Can you please advise?

    Why is manual lens distortion correction for jpeg images disabled and greyed out? What's the point? I understand jpeg don't have a lens profile and it's in RAW. But why don't you enable the distortion slider for manually correcting for jpeg images? I want to correct manually Barrel Distortion and Pincushion Distortion. I don't need your lens profiles. But you have just disabled this if the image is in jpeg format

    I have some scanned images (Epson V600, using Epson Scan) and have created TIFF files with CCITT Group 4 compression. I notice that C1 can not rotate these images. (Adjustments -> Rotate). This is not the case for similar PNG format input images. Does this mean I have to convert my images from TIFF -> PNG format before processing with C1?
