  1. Thanks Huniseapi, I had been trying to figure out Luminosity masking for some time using “Blend Ranges'. The approach works well but I was frustrated at not being able to create a mask that I could further refine (add or subtract content, or shrink / grow / feather the actual mask). By chance I came across a bog post by David Ellinsworth that highlighted a crucial step I was missing in the process. After using the the 'Blend Range' slider, it's then beneficial to then use the 'Select' > 'Select From Layer' menu option to create a selection (then a mask) from the layer (with blend range applied to it). This then leaves a mask that can be refined as necessary I wouldn't think it should be too difficult a task for Serif / Affinity Photo to implement such a panel. Thanks again.
  2. I just watched a great PS Youtube tutorial video on Luminosity masking that explains a great way to create quick, easy & accurate luminosity masks by using 'tonal ranges. If you watch this video from the 12 minute mark you can see a simple panel with slider for previewing and adjusting the target areas. It would be great if Affinity Photo had similar capabilities. The video can be found here...... Bernie

  4. Thanks - but it’s not the keyboard I’m after. It’s the equations editor panel (for the procedural texture filter). Bernie
  5. Is there a panel to input / edit the equations for the Procedural Texture filter in Affinity Photo on iPad? I can't figure out how to find it. Thanks.
  6. Hi, I’m Relatively new to Affinity Photo (both on iPad & Mac), and have the same problem on both platforms. I hope i’m posting this question in the right place. I’m trying to make a mask that targets the sky in the attached image (including the small areas in the roof parapet and the gaps in the trees). I have: Created a luminosity mask (see image 2), that I now want to adjust from being grey scale (see image 3) to pure black & white l’ve created two child layers to the mask (curves and levels) and set them both to target the Alpha channels - see image 4 (I know I can paint on these masks to further target the areas they are applied to) The problem that I have is that I can’t find a way to visualise purely the mask when I’m adjusting the curves / levels layer. When I put the mask layer into ‘Solo’ mode - I can only see the original luminosity mask, and can’t see the impact of any changes to the mask that are caused by the curves / levels adjustments. Is there a way to do this, or am I missing something? Is there a problem with the workflow I’m using? Any advise, hints, tips or pointers will be much appreciated. Thanks..... Bernie
