  1. Yeah, I probably have a couple dozen of them like Inkscape, but was looking for something right in Affinity Photo. I take images of small objects using a macro lens and may clip them to smaller size. Then I will figure out approximately how many mm the resulting clipped image will be on each side. I can paste in a saved tic mark image, rotate, place, and stretch it to get the correct number of tic marks along the edge, and clip off the excess.
  2. I want to draw a uniformly-spaced set of tic marks along two edges of an image that may have been clipped and interpolated to a different pixel density. I would like to specify the tic mark spacing in terms of number of pixels per tic mark or something similar. Currently I have Affinity Photo and suspect that Affinity Designer would more likely be able to do something like this. Can someone please explain how this might be done and which app can do it? I sort of answered my own question. Using Affinity Designer I drew a short horizontal line, duplicated the line at uniform intervals, selected the lot, and grouped them. I can duplicate, rotate, and stretch the group to set the line spacing to whatever I want. I can also ungroup, add or remove lines, and regroup. Maybe that's not the easiest way but it will do for now.
  3. I love hiking through the great southwest and taking many thousands of snaps, mostly of landscapes because my damn DSLR lens won't focus on small stuff. I recently threw my worn-out camera away and replaced it with a "toy" iPhone XR camera and three Moment lenses. Now I can take home some high resolution photos of small (even tiny) things that don't move while I'm shooting at them. That's better than nothing, and I don't have to carry around several thousand dollars worth of heavy photography equipment. If there is any interest I will describe in detail how I use CameraPixels on my iPhone XR to focus bracket up to 50 images and Affinity Photo to focus align and merge the images. There is a wonderful world of macro photography right at our fingertips, and it doesn't have to cost thousands of dollars. This first image below, about one cm across and one cm deep, was taken with a Moment macro lens attached to an iPhone XR mounted on a tripod. CameraPixels was used to focus bracket 40 images, and Affinity Photo was used to focus align and merge the images as well as remove a halo around the petals. The third image shows the sexual part of a bright red geranium flower taken with the iPhone XR and Moment macro lens. Moment claims a 10X magnification from this lens, and I've verified that with a ruler. Imagine looking at a three to five inch cluster of bright red geranium flowers and staring into a single flower that is about 3-5 cm wide. What you see in this third image is the reproductive part of one of those flowers; the image is about 2 cm wide. Look closely at the detail in this image. See the tiny piece of fiber stuck to the pollen on one of the stamens? The middle image was clipped out of the right image in Affinity Photo and expanded using Bicubic Interpolation. We can clearly see the individual pollen particles. This is over a 50X magnification!
  4. If this is all the better one can do it's a wonder anyone would purchase CameraPixels and Affinity Photo for the purpose of obtaining deep depth of field images. Focus bracketing in CameraPixels is an absolute wonder, and focus aligning and merging in Affinity Photo is straight forward, although it's not well enough publicized. The first image is a wild violet about one cm across and taken on an iPhone XR back camera and Moment macro lens. The second image, although not apparently detailed at first glance, is an amazing 50X+ image of tiny pollen particles taken with an iPhone XR back camera and Moment macro lens. #shotonmoment.
  5. Here it is 2019 and this problem still hasn't been fixed. Normally I'd have switched over to Luminar by this time but it doesn't work correctly with Photos either. OK, I did find that in Photos I can choose Image->Edit With->Affinity Photo and Affinity Photo will be launched with the selected image in Photos then opened in Affinity Photo. If this is the way Affinity Photo was intended to be launched in Photos, then Affinity Photo should not be included in the Photos extension list, which can only lead to confusion.
  6. If the image averaging process is linear it seems that one should be able to divide a set of images into a few groups and first average each group. Then average the resulting set of averages into one final average. Has anyone done this or is there some reason why this would not work?
