3.16 Manage Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer files

NeoFinder 7.1 is actually the long awaited DAM (Digital Asset Manager) tool that will handle your Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer files!

Catalog
With NeoFinder, you can catalog your Affinity Photo files (file name suffix “.afphoto”) and get thumbnails for these files. That will also work for Affinity Designer files (“.afdesign”).
Please note that to be able to grab the thumbnails for these two file types, you need to have the software from Affinity installed on the same Mac.

Edit Metadata
But NeoFinder doesn’t stop at cataloging the thumbnails.

Only with NeoFinder, you can actually edit all XMP metadata for these two files types!

Add
ratings, descriptions, keywords, and additional important information. NeoFinder uses the industry standard Adobe XMP sidecar format for this.

Find based on Metadata
And as NeoFinder uses the widely used XMP standard, you can also search all metadata, just like in all other supported formats!

The long awaited cataloging solution for your Affinity files is finally here!



Notes:
• This will also work with the upcoming
abeMeda for Windows 7.1.

• You need to enable the option “Save thumbnails with documents” in the General section of the Preferences of both Affinity Products, so that they actually store previews in the documents for NeoFinder to catalog.
