  1. Yes, I’ve seen this video. It’s a good technique but you are limited to how many images you can capture before trails will start to appear once stacked. You are also more or less forced to use a higher ISO to start with introducing extra noise that you are trying to defeat in the first place. It’s all a balancing act I guess but star alignment would be a great addition imho.
  2. There are some stacking options in AP but I would love to see star stacking for astrophotography that would automate star alignment. Is this something that could be implemented?
  3. Thank you very much - works great!
  4. I was watching the excellent Tone Mapping Portraits tutorial by @James Ritson and was curious how to achieve the invert layer on the iPad when applying the unsharp mask and high pass filters so you can paint in the effect only on the eye region. Does anyone know how this is done? Alternatively a version of the tutorial for the iPad would be a great comparison video.
  5. Does anyone wish to see this improved or is it something the Affinity team can address?
  6. I've been playing with the Motion Blur Filter to blur clouds in the sky similar to a very long exposure. The range of motion does seem quite limited though and I would love to see this increased so we can add more perceived motion when blurring. Same would apply to the desktop version as well.

    You might want to upload that to the dropbox account with the camera details as per the original request.

    Thanks. The first method works great.

    Importing latest version from Photos.

    When you say fixed on the iPad, is that to allow importing the latest version?
  11. I know this has been reported a few times in the past but will it be addressed as this is a real block for workflow? AP always imports the unmodified original image from Photos and not the latest version meaning if you have made any changes in Photos and this is what you are expecting to see in AP, it won’t be and you have lost your Photos edits when working in AP. Every other editing app I use pull the latest version so no idea why AP still works this way. It really needs to either pull the latest version or offer the choice of original or latest.
  12. Hi MEB. I need to apologise because I thought there was a tolerance slider on the Smart Selection Tool in Photo and there isn't. I thought there was a disparity between the two apps - got to love my attention to detail! Thanks, Andy.
  13. Not sure if I have missed this somewhere but it seems the Smart Selection tool has no threshold option? If so, is this something that can be added? I had an issue with a solid block of colour and the selection spilling into an adjacent colour. I could correct this by using the subtract option and clicking on the adjacent colour but a threshold option should avoid this scenario. Oh, and congrats on Designer for the iPad. I don't have a huge need for it but after being so impressed with Photo, Designer was an instant purchase for me.

    No, any camera where you might process the images with Affinity Photo.

    I think it has been mentioned a few times but lens or subject matter are irrelevant for this request. All that is required is a raw file from the camera.
