  1. I love afphoto and use it now daily for a lot of think as a freelance, but for me the Raw development module ise too far from what i need, yes the sidecard files is a usefull feature, but, simply having a full good interpreting of format is far more important to my taste. I dont use adobe product anymore but for raw i still go to any of the open source / free (rawtherapy / darktable) software, at this date they are far superior to afPhoto for raw dev. with the same raw photo in any of the three software listed here (rawtherapy, darktable, affinity photo) try to get information from dark and light part of an image back, the affinity photo result are a lackluster... I want it to be good so i can do everything in one software, but at this date it's not the case. Working on the raw engine and raw interpretation for affinity photo is more important than having sidecar file / non destructive raw editing for me.
  2. Hi everyone, it's not really a question more a request, not sur if it's the right place, maybe a moderator move the subject where it belong. I did a lot of retouching this last week using AFPhoto, and i find difficult to clic on sliders easily. for me it's a software ergonomic issue, the "clic-box" (the zone where you can clic to move a slider) should be a little bigger, maybe 2 to 5 pixels larger to avoid any unnecessary hassle when you try to clic to move a slider. it's a very small change that can make using the software for long hours much more streamlined and easy... my2cent.
  3. I just try that, but i still need to move the brush to get "paint" on the canvas. the behavior i'm trying to reproduce is i maintain the brush still in one spot, and click for a prolonged period of time, and the paint accumulate (build up) on the canvas. it's a very usefull brush behavior for any painting app, i i cant manage to find a way to do that in affinity.
  4. still need movement to "build up". in PS (and other app) i can stay still, maintain the clic, and the color / brush add layer of "paint"
  5. I have the same question, i try to make a "aerograph" like brush with build up, i tryed the accumulation slider in "more" in brush configuration, but i didnt manage to get something like i get in other soft. does someone know if it is possible in Affinity photo ?
  6. Where can i find an online help for the ipad version like the one for desktop version (https://affinity.help/photo/fr.lproj/index.html ) Or at least a list of all feature that are available or not between ipad and desktop version ? Thx in advance.
  7. it's more like it, but it's in publisher. i was hoping i didnt find it in Affinity photo. It's oki because as is see it Affinity suite is not three software, but one software that you can buy in three part (as you can switch from one to another seamlessly)
  8. I already know what i can do with a mask or a cliping mask, the frame tools is not really that, but thx anyway =)
  9. quick question : something like the (photoshop or indesign) frame tool exist in affinity Photo or not ? edit for precision.
  10. Hello again, I'm still testing a lot of functionality of AfPhoto, and trying to understand how the layer and place document work. I love the fact that resizing / transform of a layer doesnt alter the content like a sort of smart layer. I like too that you can place document inside document and have a live preview of the modification. I dont like that i cant warp / perspective change the embedded document without rasterizing it, it make the template/mockup workflow change undoable in the application for me. But i really like to have some clarification on how it work to understand how the placement and copy of an already placed document work. Does AfPhoto create a instance of the original file or it's a dynamic link ? It look like an instance because i can have different version of the same file inside another document, and editing the original file doesnt modify the composition, but modifying in the composition the file (with edit document button when the layer is selected) does modify all "copy of this version of the file" screenshoot : the embedded document is the same, i imported it a first time, and copyed it (alt + move). Then i modify the original document, and import it again. if i edit document on one of the two small version (the first imported and copied ones) the modification are the same for both. if i edit the big blue one (second importation), the modification are only applied to itself (to me it say it's an instance not a dynamic link) If its effectively a instance, is it possible to create a dynamic link ? (another procedure / workflow ?)
  11. Reproducing the situation i got the same result, effect from adjustment layer inside a group inside a group disappear. group bug ?
  12. I did some test today with the cloning tools, i'm still not sur what the global source is supposed to do, and how the add global source function. I was looking if i can clone between two different document (source on a document layer, target on another document) (i can do that in Gimp or PS) as is didnt manage to understand all the option of the tools, maybe i did miss something, if someone got point on how it is supposed to work, and if it's possible will be appreciated. I did find the answer / sorry post can be deleted ! To clone between documents, select the layer you want to clone to, press ⌥ (option/alt) to select the source area you want to use from that layer then click the Add Global Source button in the context toolbar, change to the target document and paint. The small white circle in the Sources panel indicates the source area used from that layer. You can have more than one layer as a source.
  13. Just right clic on the (top) layer and clic expand selection to see all the layer. the way it work was confusing for me too.
  14. From my understanding it doesnt work if you do it in one way, and it work if you do it the "other way". i put the group in the gradient layer and i get the intended result. (i didt not use a fill layer with a gradient here, but it work the same so it can be totally non destructive)
