    yakk reacted to Colin B in Canon 77D RAW issues. Where's all the colour gone?   
    Hi All, Thanks for all your responses.   I went back to the camera and decided to look at what I could do with the settings to try and address the issues.  So Ive switched the camera into ADOBE RGB and the colours are now showing up when I import them into Affinity.   I will have to wait for another sunset to see if I can edit them more easily.

    yakk reacted to GMPhotography in Open source Eagle Nebula data from Hubble Heritage   
    Here is another practice edit of some more Hubble telescope data. Learning! Affinity Photo handles this type of work supremely well! Very similar edit to my post about the Bubble Nebula except this time the Hubble team imaged Ha (Green), SII (Red) and OIII (Blue)  instead of Ha, NII, and OIII as in the Bubble Nebula.
    It was also more difficult to get looking like their edit, and required me adding a layer of Blue Ha, selectively erasing it and lowering it's opacity, as well as adding a layer of green SII.
    I used FITS liberator to stretch and convert the FITS data to .tiff for each of the three filter tpes (2 times for each, one strong stretch to bring out faint details, one weak stretch to keep highlight details) edited the 2 sets individually, brought them together and used the blend range tool to blend the two. Selective denoise, and a little more colour work in LR.

    yakk reacted to littledetails in Enhancements to Blend Ranges   
    Affinity Photo includes an awesome "Blend Ranges" feature that I use to accomplish exposure blending with my photographs. It takes a little practice, but this tool is more flexible than Photoshop's "Blend If" sliders (because it supports customizable and non-linear luminosity feathering), and more efficient than Luminosity masks (smaller file size).
    I would love to see the efficiency of this feature further improved by the addition of presets within the blend ranges panel to create common blending curves, which would save me the trouble of frequently recreating similar curves over and over again. Presets such as "highlights only", "midtones only", "shadows only" or combinations of these would be a real time saver. It would also be great to see the histograms of the current layer, and composite histogram of the layers below, drawn behind the respective curve graphs in this panel. Without histograms it's hard to visualize how the luminosity information is distributed across the current layer and the layers below, and creating the blend curves becomes a bit more of a trial-and-error process to find the right spots in the X-axis to start or end your curve.
    Photoshop users have plugins like Raya Pro and Lumenzia that make exposure blending easier, although they suffer from poor UI and other issues. It would be great if Affinity Photo put some more effort into fleshing out the Blend Ranges feature for photographers who want to do manual exposure blending.

    You should give a look to the the post from James, Photo FAQ with tutorials.
    You have a Vimeo channel for Affinity products with a lot of simple or more advanced tutorials.
    In your case, you have in particular Frequency separation and a speed retouching session.

    Hey guys
    Great to read this and I cannot express how much I agree with what R C-R said earlier.
    You make a really great job and it's a pleasure to be part of the journey of scratching the monopoly of the A products. 
    But even if there still a lot to do, this forum and the direct link to the devs and the great help provided by the mods, Miguel at the first place of course, is definitely what gives confidence in using your apps now and for the future.

    Just to add a tiny bit to what MBd already said for newcomers here: if you have used other software makers' support sites for help with their products, prepare to be blown away by how much better the support you can get here from the Affinity team is than anything else you likely have seen from anybody else.
    Here, you won't find any of those annoying scripted "boilerplate" answers that are not relevant to whatever you ask about & make you wonder about the support person's reading comprehension skills.
    This is support done right!

    I see your point marsofearth, mainly the convergence between different computer graphic technics.
    But I have to say Serif's choice suits me better.
    About mixing vector and raster technics, I didn't have time to use AD enough but it seems that you have some nice pixel mode tools.
    And aitte is right about different things like having different cheaper apps to let people choose one or two (and three in the near future) apps depending on their needs.
    For me, the essential in that choice is to keep those applications as light and powerful as possible in their respective domains but still, having an efficient bridge between the two if you need it. I don't want an app doing 3 millions different things if the price to pay (beside $/€) is to have a 5Go application taking ages to load and do something.
    And of course being competitive with Adobe equivalent but without the subscription.

    yakk got a reaction from cjp in Workflow, from LR+PS to Affinity Photo?   
    Photos is not as bad as we can read about it sometimes so it's definitely an option to consider, because it's free and completely integrated to the OS.
    I just think the interface of iPhotos was easier.
    If I don't want to use it anymore it's because I would take the occasion of leaving Aperture to also leave the concept of a closed library containing the photos. And few other things too.
    But it's still a great application and it does the job pretty well.

    As I said, your video is very interesting and I'll reuse the trick of defining new keyboard shortcuts for sure ! Very good idea  ;)
    While looking for a solution, I also tried the smart folders in the Finder. May be you could correct me but it seems that you cannot define them in a specific directory, they are associated to the left bar of the Finder.
    I would have prefer to be able to define them only for my photos in the Pictures folder of my home directory.
    Your ideas can definitely be very useful in some situation though.
    You know what to do now, call them every month to get a "new" free month until Affinity release a DAM  :P

    Hi cjp
    Yes, Affinity Photo can totally replace PS.
    Unfortunately, concerning the catalog part, it's more complicated.
    I watched Allan's video and I must say it's a smart way of using standard OS X features.
    But if you're looking for keywords, exif edition, smart collections, etc... well...
    I've been looking through the different solutions available on OS X, standalone, and nothing is really great I have to say.
    In my case, I want to replace Aperture which was just great, but with no future.
    I gave a try to Darktable, Media Pro, Lyn, Emulsion, XnView, Picassa, Photo Mechanic, and even Apple Photos but there's always something missing.
    You might find one that suits your needs though and the good thing is all these applications have a demo version. So see by yourself.
    For me, the closest to what I'm looking for is probably Media Pro but even if Phase One released a beta version 1.6 recently, its future is not clear.
