  1. Many thanks to carl123 & markw - I see the light. These things are not well documented as fundamental concepts, although I don't read manuals and I ascribe my fault in understanding to me being from Connecticut and this program developed in "Europe". Or is it just me. I dunno.
  2. Thanks - I get that now. Funny how I did not understand a fundimental concept like that and yet I have had no trouble understanding layers, masking, curves, adjustments, etc. The mind is a strange place...
  3. Thank you Walt, Alfred, smadell, R C-R! As I understand it now, the "Document" is a singular global entity that resides within a given .aphoto file and that there can be only one "Document" in the file. I was assuming that by duplicating the original layer, I was making a separate and new document within the file as a backup. I see now that layers are child compartments that can be individually manipulated ad-infinitum, but the "Document" is the single, parent container. Change the parent and you change the family...
  4. Walt: So you're saying that any "duplicate" image will ultimately be a duplicate of whatever edits you apply to the original within the AFF file. If so, that is a big missing piece of my understanding of the stability of an original duplicate.
  5. When I load an original map image (JPG) into AFFPhoto, I create a duplicate of the untouched image as a new layer below the original. My intent is to preserve the duplicated layer as a backup in case I go down a rabbit hole and I can't find Alice. On MAC, it seems that edits to the original image file such as cropping, rotating, etc. are "synced" to the duplicate layer below and now both layers are identical. How do I crop & rotate and edit the original image without carrying over the edits to the duplicated image in the layer below the original image layer?
  6. I want to add that perhaps a Planar stitch option would be very useful for correction distortions when working with a scene having many straight edges as in architectural work.
  7. As it was in the excellent but now defunct "Kolor" 'AutoPano Pro' software, it would be great if there was an option to adjust vertical distortion in the final panorama output by allowing the user to select the parts in a stitched scene that should be vertical (like a "verticals straighten" tool) so that an architectural photo or city scene can be rendered as "Homographic" or "Orthographic" with true verticals and minimal distortion.
