  1. I have not seen this before but after some investigation I discovered the following. Thought I would share just in case someone else comes across this same issue.
  2. Was trying to load a folder into the media browser but the header where one see the already loaded image folders was no longer there. Is there a setting that I am missing or is this an issue?
  3. Not sure if this will be what you want but here is a font to look at TheFlowerCity.otf TheFlowerCity.ttf
  4. Macphun has changed it’s name to Skylum and is in the process of developing its own competitive products to adobe; and Affinity which already has a very viable set of competitive products and getting more awesome each day. I would suggest that skylum may have some contractual obligations to adobe. Perhaps they are not willing or able to work with Affinity for this reason. However and strangely the Nik plugins do work with Affinity. Again just to note, prior to the google gobble Nik was developed by the guys that created Macphun. The only app google was interested in was Snapseed so they dropped the other Nik products giving birth to Macphun. https://macphun.com/blog/macphun-is-becoming-skylum
  5. The video using edge detection to help remove noise starts about 6:35 https://vimeo.com/178301724 In addition the previous lesson in this same video shows how to sharpen edges prior to removing noise with inverted edges..
  6. What about using edge detection so that you are not blurring the edges? I think that there was a video about this.
  7. Thank you all at Serif for all the work that you have done on this most awesome software and support for your customers. Thanks too for the, FREE STUFF! Celebrate our bumper 2017 with these downloads
  8. This video maybe of more interest for your work https://vimeo.com/242758748 Don’t know what PS vid is doing but this vid shows how to child layer into a mask.

  10. Just my 2 cents, but one can't expect to instantly learn all the techniques is this software. It takes doing something at least 12 times before there is some retention of new information and even then, one must go back and review again and again. That is my experience as even now I am going back to look at Affinity videos for refreshing in combination with the help pages. Each time the knowledge gets more set in my mind. There are still too many things that I need to discover and master, i.e. Equations, but if I looked at the whole all at once, I would feel overwhelmed and give up. Little steps, lead to more. In the beginning I would play the videos over and over, use the scroll bar to move to a certain position to play again and again, then practice. There is no quick way of learning, but one must find their way of learning and then practice. The new Affinity Photo Book looks really good. I might consider buying this one because being able to write in a real book is my way of learning. Sorry to all those that created this awesome book, but that is the way I like to learn.
  11. Special thanks for their contribution to Affinity Photo and users to: Dirk Wüstenhagen for his Fine Art Texture Collection Shawn Van Daele for his Uplift - Epic Skies - Overlays Affinity Photo Devs for the Macro mask layer and adjustment Special thanks for their contribution to Affinity Designer and users to: Thomas White for his Tom Chalky Handcrafted Fonts and Textures Enrique Figueroa for his Frankentoon TexturizerPro Brushes And last but not least to the Developers at Serif and Affinity for their outstanding software and customer service to all their loyal customers. Bravo!
  12. Thanks MEB, I was reading dmstraker's initial post and his statement as follows: It made me assume that if one could do this on Windows, then it could also be done on a Mac. Thanks for your reply and the link.
  13. A question for dmstraker, in your post you stated: 'Installing as a plugin for Affinity works fine. Just Add in Edit/Preferences/Plugins, giving it C:Program Files/Skylum as the presets folder. It then appears under Filters/Plugins in Affinity.', but it looks like it was done on a PC. I am using a Mac and have tried to install Luminar 2018 as a plugin without success. Have you done this on a Mac? And if so, how did you achieve this?
  14. The Nik developers prior to google gobble are now Macphun/Skylum, so the similarity is not surprising. As far as ON1 is concerned, they seem to be based on the adobe model and just my opinion is very unsuccessful. I own it but gave up on it a long time ago. Glad to see that Luminar 2018 can be used as a plug-in thru AP.
