  1. Hi there. After seeing a video with Nick Page using Lumenzia in Photoshop, I was inspired to do luminosity masks in a new and much more customizable way than the much used 5 levels of brigths, midtones, and darks. With these macros, when you create a light, midtones, or dark mask, it doesn't create the mask immediately, but applies 3 adjustments: a B&W, a Curves, and a Levels adjustment. Now you can adjust the three fine tune whatwhat you want in your selection. And using B&W adjustment you can more easily target specific colors. The only difference between the 3 that the curves layer is inverted in the darks, and peaks at the halfway point in the midtones mask. When you are happy with the selection, select the "Complete" macro, which will create a selection, and a new spare channel from the selection. Hope you find this useful.

  2. I have an Intuos Pro S (model PTH-451 - driver version 6.3.38-3) It works most of the places in the application, and pressure sensitivity works correctly. But on some elements in the application, it doesn't react when I "click" with the stylus. E.g. adjustment presets often has to be clicked multiple times before they are selected, and I cannot play macros at all using the stylus. In both cases, if I click with my mouse, it works fine.
  3. Yes, that is perfectly fine. When importing the tiff file into my C1 library I see the end result (i.e. flattened file). I can then right-click and select "Open in Affinity", to continue working on this file. When saving in affinity, any changes I've done is automatically reflected in C1. When I'm done working on the picture, I normally flatten the image in Affinity (Merge visible, and then delete all the original layers). I would assume that similar behavior would be experienced in Lightroom.
  4. I use AF in a workflow with Capture One, which by default recognizes, and can create .tiff files. There are however two minor annoyances When I select "Edit in Affinity" from C1, the raw file is rendered as a tiff, and opened in Affinity. If I create new layers, Affinity will prompt me if I want to save the layers. I always want to save the layers, so the popup is a slight annoyance (and a risk that I accidentally choose to not save layers). If I create a document inside AP, e.g. by Panorama stitching, the default file format is .afphoto. It would be nice if I could choose layered .tiff as the default file format.
  5. Currently, editing an already recorded Macro is extremely limited. I would love to see some really basic functionality, such as the ability to reorder steps, and delete unnecessary steps.
  6. I came to this post exactly because I was attempting to create a marco for Luminosity masks. In addition to be able to specify a name when creating the channel, it would also be beneficial that you can specify a name when "selecting" a channel. E.g. I was following this guide, and to create the "Midtones 1" masks, it suggests to select the entire image, and the first subtract "Lights 1" from selection, then subtract "Darks 1". This will be a lot more stable if you can select the channel by name.
  7. I would seriously love to see this too. To be able to apply Nik filters, and then come back the next day, and do minor tweaks. That is really something I miss from PS. Please!!!
