  1. @Dan C Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for! You’re a life saver. I had tried this, but did not select Alpha.
  2. Ok, just found a way to turn it into a greyscale layer, I can adjust from there but this is a little wonky of a workflow-I’m sure there’s another way.
  3. Hi everyone, I am trying to use a channel as a mask, no problem there, however I want to adjust the contrast of the mask and I can not get a curve adjustment to effect it at all. For that matter, when I go back to the channel, I can’t adjust it there either. This I’d driving me nuts as this is a standard workflow for me in PS. Any advice welcomed, I’m guessing it’s a workflow thing that I am overlooking or just don’t know about in photo. Thanks, Jim
  4. @Murfee Thanks! I over looked that completely! This gives me what I needed- plus I need to look into the LUT for photo- Just haven’t dived real deep yet, even if I have to set them up on desktop and bring over to ipad is something I would do. Thanks again. -Jim
  5. Hi @Murfee I was just looking around and came across this. Would be interested in learning more about your approach. I am working on implementing a zone editing workflow in photo on ipad and cant seem to find a way to either save my curves with my zone adjustments applied to them to re-use. In PS I can actually save them as a LUT and apply in raw. Wish photo had this maybe it does? Thanks for anything you can share about your technique. -Jim
  6. Hi @dominik I’ll be interested in what they do. I had hopes that maybe one day they would make an After Effects competitor but I think thats some heavy lifting for anyone to match, but if anyone can Affinity can! I still use affinity Designer on iPad to make my svg’s and they export perfectly to a great app called Keyshape App on Mac that I can then animate with css for web and other apps. Its a great workflow.
  7. UI design can and should account for Micro interactions. These are typically short animations. Thats one reason. The other is for prototyping a layout. Being able to show what your intent is when someone clicks a button. -Jim
  8. Wish they would as well. I prefer to stick all in with the Affinity ecosystem. I also wish that they created the css properties of elements like in PS and AI, but I think I read somewhere they would never do that. Hopefully they offer some sort of prototyping click through a atleast.

    Managed to export and still keep my original document in tact.

    New stack problems

    Well the 3rd time is the trick! It’s working and has not disappeared. I am not doing anything any different, but I’ll go ahead and assume I did something wrong. The only thing I haven’t tested that I did the first two times come to think of it, was to export it. I’ll try that next. -Jim

    New stack problems

    Hi Dan C, yes I have enough space to save the file. The first time I did it it was with about 5 images and a gradient map adjustment. The second time was about 10 images. It weird as I don’t recall this ever happening before. I’ll give it another go and see if I can replicate it. I don’t recall closing the document, but I did close out of Photo, but I have always had whatever document I created saved to the files within photo and Designer..
  12. A bug can also be when something does not function properly by not displaying the proper UI. It doesn’t have to crash or cause any other issues. I am guessing its just not done and as you say not an official bug, as I would not report it as such. In fact I rarely post on forums to ask this stuff, instead I usually just keep researching or find another way... I also don’t submit bug reports or ask for featured etc. because I am not being paid to do so and value my time too much but I don’t mind the devs getting reports from crashes. In fact as I type this I am going overboard explaining myself-LOL. Anyway thanks for confirming that this does not work on iPad. I am guessing you tried to do it too? Thanks, Jim Edit: just adding as I think about it. You’re right I should submit these features since I really love to use these on iPad!
  13. Yep, I get it, however being a new feature I would have expected it to be cross functional- not partially cross functional. To me thats an oversight or a bug.
  14. so I have ran a new stack on photo just to get all my render passes in one document to edit, and both time after doing some adjustments and such, the file disappea5s when I come back to look for it later really frustrating and I’m not sure I am going to be able to trust photo on ipad any more I never have this problem with Designer, and I also don’t in photo except with this layer stacking feature anyone else have this issue?
