  1. Hi Ron! Thanks for sharing. Henri is half King Charles Cavalier spaniel and half Bichon. His mom was completely white, but his dad had the black and tan markings. I looked up the Havanese, and they come in a variety of colors, so there's no reason to think the previous owner misinformed you. Henri also has a long body and short lets! You are right; they look very similar!!! Aren't they the best?! These mixes have become extremely popular, and they seem to make some very nice little "designer dogs." They sure like people! Henri's breeding isn't very good. I found out the breeder got her male and female from a puppy mill. The Bichon looks fine, but the Cavalier is definitely not a good example of that breed. Henri's front feet stick out to the side, but one is really bad, and the ankle is deformed. You can see in the photo above that his eyes aren't straight either! But, you don't see these things when they're puppies, and his personality makes up for it. I'm trying to learn how to take portraits of the pets and my husband! (They're available!!) A friend who takes fantastic photos of animals has a small dog with a white muzzle. She said that she has problems with discoloration, too. But, she gets all of that out, and manages to get the muzzle very white (Henri's muzzle is kind of an off white, mixed with some gray). She uses Photoshop, and told me how she did it there, but something is different because I can't replicate it in Affinity. Anyway, here's a photo I took right after he was groomed--look at that long body and SHORT front legs!!
  2. Thanks! That's pretty good. It's definitely the best one yet! For the life of me I cannot keep his beard white, and that red staining looks awful in photos.
  3. I hope someone will see this because I’m not sure if I should start it as a new topic. I’ve continued using “desaturate” to get rid of the rust stains on my dog’s beard. However, in some photos, they are so dark that when I do that, I end up with a dark gray. I want to brighten/whiten without losing the detail. Does anyone know how I can do that?
  4. I've been noticing the same thing on my MacBook Pro. I'm just using a mouse, and it's really irritating.
  5. I’m having an awful time, too. In my case I created a pixel layer over my photo, and just as I get a few strokes of paint down it crashes. I’ve had this happen at least 4 times in a row now, and I’m so frustrated, I’m giving up. I have the latest update and I’m on the iPad Pro.
  6. Mine keeps crashing too. All I’m trying to do is paint on a pixel layer!
  7. Thank you so much!!! It wasn't that hard, and he looks so much better! It took me a couple of tries to get the right mask, and I ended up using an adjustment layer to create the pixel layer (which is what I think you meant). Yay!!!
  8. Thank you. I can see I'm going to have to practice. At one time I was pretty good with Photoshop, but haven't tried anything like this. I'm still learning to use AD, have done some tutorials, but nothing like having an actual project to learn (and make yourself crazy)!
  9. I'm trying to figure out how to remove as much of the red stains around his mouth as possible. A friend who uses Photoshop told me she uses a layer mask and then desaturates. I was watching a Photoshop video on YouTube, and another woman replaces some of the colors. I realize I'm not going to get everything and have it remain realistic, but I'd like to make it less obvious. His beard really isn't white, but more of a cream color.
  10. I finally found that on one of the videos somewhere, and I agree!
  11. What? I see that small box on the bottom right, but it does not contain “delete.”
  12. I just tried using “posterize” with iPad and it did nothing! Why does this have to be so tricky? I’m glad it worked for someone else, but I see no changes at all.
