    Denoise on V1.7.0?

    You can restore V1.67 if you had a Time Machine backup. You can allow it to keep the latest version and also restore the original. This is what I have done on my old iMac.

    Denoise on V1.7.0?

    I tried your suggestion and used OpenGL instead (the way it was in 1.67) and noticed that there was noticeable improvement! That's good news, but the bad news is that 1.67 had better noise reduction (at least on my hardware). Thank you for the suggestion. Will continue to use 1.67 until this issue is resolved.
  3. I'm using the new Affinity Photo V1.70. With V1.67, the Noise Reduction filter had an extreme setting, which has been removed in the current version. For me personally, it wasn't that big a deal because I had Luminance Denoise set´╗┐ to only 108%. Colour denoise was 17% (no extreme), Detail was 80%, and Contribution was 100%. These settings worked beautifully for the types of photos I was processing. The problem now is that regardless of how I adjust the new Denoise settings, nothing - or very minimal - appears to be happening. The split-screen before-and-after display doesn't reveal any discernible difference in noise reduction. When I use V1.67 on my other Mac (2012 MacBook Pro running Mojave), everything works fine. Is there something that I'm doing wrong with the new version? I have since discovered that the Denoise algorithm was rewritten to take advantage of the latest GPU. The computer where this is having a problem is a 2007 iMac 24" (supported by Affinity). It is an ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB VRAM. Could this be the reason for the problem described above?

  5. Hi. As I progress with my knowledge in Affinity Photo, I continue to be very much in "learning mode". I continue make a lot of mistakes and often scratch my head wondering what to do next, and that's fine. That's what learning is all about. However, there are times when I have a "Eureka!" moment, and everything works out great. What I would like to see in Affinity Photo is a Notepad feature that is associated with each saved file. That way, if I noted that the mask selection needs to be ramped to 38%, I can see that in the future when I won't always remember how I achieved that particular effect. For now, I find myself going to the online tutorials on Vimeo, or (heaven forbid) making separate files in Microsoft Word. The latter, of course, can be very hard to reference when a specific is needed as opposed to a general one. Dragging items that can provide details from the history to the notepad would also be a very handy feature. I am pretty certain that there is nothing like this feature in Adobe's products, and it would be a unique feature to Affinity Photo only. Thanks for your consideration of such a feature.
