  1. Hello @HVDB Photography, Thanks for the help. Yes I did try the perspective tool, however that seems to run on straight lines, single pane it doesn't work but double pane has some positive effects but due to the centre points, this leaves the centre with a notable hick where the two panes (with their own perspective distortions) now meet -- for intance the topof the wall above the car is straight on the RHS but then on the LHS suddenly vears up. Actually you give me the idea to apply the Perspective tool after the fish eye cancellation effect. I will give that a shot.... cheers Update: Working with Perspective tool and fish eye caused straight line interruptions on the centre area of the image -- doesn't work well.
  2. Hello I have a panorama image created by Affinity Photo (v1.7.1) which has produced a panorama (see below). This panorama features a Fisheye effect that needs to be removed (or minimised at least). I have previous experience with Jasc Paint Shop Pro which did a VERY good automated effect of doing this, but I cant get the correct results using Affinity Photo. I have read similar topics on here and explored the Developer Persona and used the "lens" tab and tried to adjust the distortion, however, the distortion works on the whole image regardless of focus. points. This means that the centre of the image is reduced and set to appear further away (shrunk) whilst the same applies to the outside of the image, simply to a lesser extent. What I am looking for, is a system that sets a magnitude effect ring (usually 50% of the radius of the image) where by the image data within a range of this "ring" is not adjusted, data outside of this ring is pulled towards the viewpoint, whilst data inside this ring is pushed away (as fish eye reduction). An example image is below. smaller-Intention See The full image (16:5 ratio), see the red inner ring, all the image dta within that ring I want to be fish eye adjusted to be pushed away from the viewpoint. however, between the red ring and the yellow outer ring that image data shouldbe only minor ly adjusted as a zero point band, with the image data outside of the yellow ring being pulled up towards the viewpoint. In effect, I want to try and not just negate the fisheye effect but to actually invert the fish eye effect. Using the lens distortion effect only drags image data inwards and makes everything shrink without bending the relationship; please see the centre wall (within the yellow circle) is still bulging despite being heavily distorted (-50%). Please see the black arrows indicating that data on the periphery of the image is also being dragged inwards when that actually works against what I'm trying to achieve. Fish eye is at best only part of the solution. From all I've written, can anyone advise the name of the process that I can use in Affinity Photo OR Designer (I have both) to adjust this image in the way described. Image is created from a panorama of 5 images and is sized at ~11.8k x ~3.8k. Thanks, and apologies if the answer is a simple function I'm unaware of!
  3. Walt, many thanks for the help -- I found the autosave in the AppData folder tree and have recovered to a point close to when I'd saved. Many thanks! Full path:
  4. I am on a PC. Window 10 Professional with Affinity Photo 1.7.1. I have a file that I saved and then upon saving and closing (or seconds just after) I encountered a fatal windows 10 error relating to the Graphics card and this caused Blue Screen of Death. Upon reloading I am unable to open the saved Affinity Photo file, stating the file type is "unsupported". I hazard a guess that saving to the disk was interrupted by the BSOD. However, I have the Affinity Photo backup saving (File Recovery Interval) system running every 300 seconds and this should have a version of my image I can work from. How do I find this file, on PC? I have found similar threads but those that give a Filepath are non existant on my system and also many comments / posts state this (File Recovery Interval) is only for power failure errors etc; which this exactly is. How do I restore my work? Many thanks. M
  5. I have since found it -- looking under the character menu ("a") from the font menubar gives a selection of sub-headings, one of which is "decoration" within which the text stroke colour and width are editable.
  6. After upgrading to Affinity Photo 1.7 I can now no longer find where or how to set the stroke width of font elements. I create a font and write a text and i have found I can use the alternative colour on the colour palette to make a stroke colour on the font, but I can not find any way of editing the width of this stroke. This previously used to be an option from the Font sub menu bar. Where has it gone?
