  1. Hi guys,


    I do this in Photoshop to normalize the R, G, and B curves for the negative film (yes, I scan 35mm film) :
    - Create a new 'Curves' layer.  
    - Click the little arrow at the top right of the Curves properties window, and select "Auto Options...".  
    - Click "Enhance Per Channel Contrast" and "Snap Neutral Midtones", and set the shadow and highlight clipping to "0.01".  
    - Click "Save as Defaults" and then "ok" out of the Auto Options window, and now click the "Auto" button.  
    What I've just done is to normalize the R, G, and B curves for the negative film.
    A little background: essentially, negative film has characteristic curves for R, G, and B light.  But these are not coincident with each other.  If you were to take a photograph of a neutral grey patch and look at the histogram of the negative, you'd find that the blue channel would have the highest intensity, followed by green, and then red.  What you need is, for a neutral grey patch, to ensure that R = G = B (that, indeed, is the RGB *definition* of "grey"). So in this curves layer, you're correcting for this R, G, B curve offset by forcing the histogram for each colour to use the entire histogram range (that is, you are enhancing the per channel contrast...as per the Auto Option box you checked above).
    I need to do the same using the Affinity Photo that I have just bought it :)
    Any way to do this ?

  2. Hi Dave,


    I have played with the little orange triangle but not get what I want.  Using the return key I get this:





    Ok, but I need the text outside the circle!

    I have played again with the little orange triangle but not get what I want.


    ​Don't work. Should be a easy way to choose the position. After the return, I only get right inside... but I want outside.

    If we have the path exactly in the center of each letter and not align in top or bottom but in center.... this will work!


    ​I don't see the solution ://


    ​Note: I can share the file if necessary.



  3. Hi,


    I am new here and bought the Affinity Designer two days ago :)



    Using Text on a path in Affinity Designer, I have this result:




    Ok. In this case I can use the text on a path inside the circle and outside.  Ok, I want outside. Done.

    Just great but I have now a problem!!




    I need the words "rbfigueira.com"be inverted to be readable. I need that the "R" start on left and not in right. I need that we can read "rbfigueira.com" from left to right and not from right to left.


    - How to invert the text (typing) ?


    Note: I think we should have one other big important way to do the alignment. In this case I am using one circle path. In this case I can align the text inside or outside of the circle ... is the same of saying that I am alignment the text from bottom or top of the text. Will be better to have the possibility to align using in center of the text and not only (top or bottom) !! In that case the path will be exactly in the center of each letter and not align in top or bottom but in center. The spaces and curve will be more perfect. Is that possible using this version ?




    Best regards,
