Hi,

Just wondered if you had any plans to support image files created by Affinity Photo https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/photo/new-features/?

Thanks for a great application!

Generally, ExifTool doesn't support proprietary formats written by various software packages.  The exception is if I get a lot of requests.  But no requests so far to support this format, so no plans at the moment.

Just adding my vote to support the .afphoto file format.

And to say thanks for writing and sharing this awesome tool.

Another request to support Affinity Photo's .afphoto file format.  This program is getting increased traction as people look for alternatives to the monthly Adobe tax.  It is a very viable alternative.  I can't see that its file format is any more proprietary that many others already supported by ExifTool.

Thanks for such a great tool and thanks for listening.

Hi Phil,
I would like to add a request to support the Affinity application format.
The family of users of these applications is growing, as is the scope of their applications (APhoto, ADesigner and APublisher for Win/Mac/iPad), which use an identical file format.
Although it is a proprietary/undocumented format, I think it should not be difficult to "crack" it at the metadata level (file thumbnails are also displayed in File Explorer).
Since ExifTool is used by APhoto itself to manage metadata for image files, I think Serif (Affinity application developer) himself might be interested in adding their format to ExifTool.
Thank you very much

Could you attach a couple of small samples with metadata?

I've emailed you some samples Phil.

Hi Hubert,

I got them.  Thanks.
