  1. I seem to have a polka dot effect when I dodge. I've attached a screenshot with the opacity turned up. I can't get a consistent flow. I've closed all other open applications but it still occurs. Any idea what would cause it? Windows 10 Dell XPS 15 9570 15.6 inch 512GB SSD Intel Core i7 8750H 2.20GHz RAM: 16GB DDR4/2,666MHz 16GB FHD Boxed Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti w/Max-Q Design DirectX version 12.0
  2. I'm just curious why there's a pull down when the only choice is Serif Labs? I certainly don't have a problem with that. Is the plan to have more choices someday?
  3. OK thanks. It's not a big deal to select default. I'll look into setting up a custom profile.
  4. Great. Thanks @Dan C, I appreciate it. I wonder if another application is "touching" it somehow before it's opened in Affinity? I also use DxO Photolab 3 and iMatch.
  5. Is there an Affinity tech support where I could get someone to take a look at this problem? Are there logs that could shed some light perhaps? Every RAW file I open has this issue where I have to click 'Default' in the Lens tab. Certainly not a show stopper but it is a bit irritating. Many thanks.
  6. Thanks, Dan, for the quick reply. That ARW file in the background of the screenshot is available for download in Google Drive. Here's the link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WbYZJb-lfOWxEOsdZXitHtrK9daSvEvu/view?usp=sharing Thanks a lot for the help! Tom
  7. I just discovered if I go to the Lens tab and select the default preset pull down again the image snaps to the full size. As shown in the screenshot the Default preset is already selected. Why should I have to do that again?
  8. Today I used my Sony E 50mm F1.8 OSS lens with my a7 III and the raw images when opened in Affinity look like the attached screenshot. The same images in my other software (FastRawViewer, iMatch and DxO Photolab) show normally without the crop. I've used the lens before and this didn't happen in Affinity. Could I have missed another setting in Affinity? Many thanks.
  9. Thanks, that's good advice. I have the Nik Collection but have really only fooled around with Silver Efex Pro. I better look at Viveza. Thanks again!
  10. @Jowday Thanks, good advice. Lots to learn and that's just dodge and burn. What kind of filters are you referring to? For the camera or can you purchase filters for Affinity like Nik Collection? I have them as I also am using DxO Photolab.
  11. Thanks, that workflow makes a lot of sense to me. Simple is better. Some of the methods were crazy complicated.
