  1. Probably installed it wrong, but the plugin version has no looks in the add look drawer. The stand alone has many.
  2. Not sure if this is a bug, but using curves in publisher and the other personas are opposite of how they work in the individual photo and designer apps. In the apps, if I pull down the curve, the image darkens. In publisher and the personas, pulling the curve down makes the image lighter. Perhaps it is some setting that I'm missing on my system, a bug, or just the way things work. I checked this topic on the board, but couldn't find one, so apologies if this has already been addressed.
  3. Ahhhhh, mystery solved! Thanks Paul. I always work in RGB in photo, but was using publisher in cymk. I never realized there was a difference. Always good to know something new! Thanks again.
  4. If one goes to the actual application, is there a way to return to publisher with the adjusted artwork, or does one need to save, exit the app and import it into publisher?
  5. Using Ron's technique, there won't be a square outline...
  6. Same issue on the mac side. There is not even a greyed out list. Everything fine when using photo as a stand alone.
  7. Something like this?
  8. Not sure I understand what you mean by square effect. Maybe attach the photo here so it will be easier to solve the problem.
  9. If you have the shape above your photo, just right click on the rectangle and choose mask to below. Then click on the rectangle layer and go to effects>gaussian blur.
  10. While there may be a better way of doing this, take the box tool and create a box to cover the part of the photo you want. (basically, where you want the photo to fade). Make sure the box is black. (you can do the same thing with an oval). Drag the box layer down over the photo layer until you see a vertical blue line. (not the horizontal one). Go to effects and crank up the gaussian blur. you should now have the effect you're looking for.
  11. Seems like all google nik filters are working with the newest beta. No more updating fonts!

    nik collection, affinity 1.7.0

    Looks like the old google NIK is working with the newest beta! No more updating fonts!
  15. Just wondering if it is possible to see what's in the bleed area when using artboards? On regular documents, I can see the contents on the bleed area and then hide them if I want. With artboards, I can see the bleed outline, but not the contents. Thanks in advance.

  19. Not sure of anyone else's requirements, but I just moved the pages to the right side.
  20. Does this version work with filter forge 6? (the latest beta versions did not). If not, is it possible to keep version 1.5 along with 1.6? If so, how does one do that?
  21. Are you adding a new pixel layer above the one you want to burn/dodge? I always add a new pixel layer, fill with 50% grey, change the blend mode to overlay. Seems to work on both rgb and cymk images. All the d&b is on the new layer which make it non-destructive.
