  1. Thanks for the link, rmar; I just watched this and the follow-up video. This is pretty much what I have been doing for my small(er) prints. I am really more in need of understanding what dpi/ppi would be appropriate for such large prints - they will be viewed both from afar (20-30 meters away) and from fairly close up (3-6 meters away) and on whether my global sharpening adjustments are better done in the Develop or the Photo Persona.
  2. I have been using Affinity Photo for editing my product shots (for the web) and some of my own Fine Art prints (nothing over 40cm X 60cm as of yet); but I just completed all of the shots for some work for a large local company (who had mentioned in the brief that they planned to make 'large prints' with a couple of the images) and they informed me today, whilst we were making selections, that they plan on three of these images being 1:1 format and 4 meters by 4 meters! I have never edited an image for a final print that size and am now concerned about what I need to be aware of in the editing
  3. I was so excited this finally arrived :D - unfortunately, I am still using an iPad 4. :( I am still excited about this app, :wub: but will have to wait for funds to somehow miraculously appear so I can pick up an iPad Pro. :mellow:
  4. I can not share the edits I made as I deleted them after seeing how much I could accomplish with the jpgs. I made the edits only so I could let you know what I had done and then that was answered by others. But I can share something better than the edits with you that will help you greatly from now on and will help you to see the value of 'playing' with each and every slider to see for yourself what they do. I hope I can write this clearly enough to be understandable. It will help with white balance only, but it will make clear the principle to use on other sliders. Open a a copy of t
  5. Chintan, The grey card could be somewhat helpful to you; but not so much in a shooting situation such as that. If you shoot.jpg, then setting a custom white balance using anything white would be better than the grey card for a wedding. Best option, depending on your camera, is to save as RAW and take care of white balance in post for each individual image - things happen fast at weddings and parties. rmar's mention of the NIK collection now being a free download is something you may want to act upon quickly; one never knows what Google may do next. As far as these particular images go, som
  6. OK, I'll play, too. I wasn't that pleased with the three random selections I got but I suppose it doesn't matter. I thought I would include the CDs since not everyone can play vinyl these days. :rolleyes: Fun idea Robchoc!
  7. Most of the bird/wildlife shooters I have met here are 'scoping' (using an iPhone mount on a scope) and claim it is mostly because of the difference in T-stops. A scope, they say, just lets in that much more light. Is that something you have tried; any opinion? ... Admittedly, I sometimes still compare the RAW conversion from Aperture with that of AP and often prefer that of Aperture; but this could be a user-related thing.
  8. Some great shots here, Kodiak. It is quite amazing what we can do with today's camera, lens, and clothing technology; especially considering the camera shake induced by a long lens (and cold weather) and the high ISO you would have needed in in order to maintain a 'just fast enough' shutter speed in these lighting conditions even with a wide open aperture. Having a tool like AP to go from RAW image to that which we envisioned with ease is the icing on the cake.
  9. Madame, Your info shows that you are in 'Scandinavia' but not where. I ordered the book last week and it was delivered early this week. So if they ship to Sweden I do not understand why it wouldn't ship to you.
  10. I just this moment placed my order; I hope the delivery is quick as others have stated, but as I am in Sweden maybe it will take the full 5 - 7 business days. I was a bit confused about this when placing the order (hadn't read through this thread) and so gave a new password. I suppose now I have two affinity accounts? Regardless I hope I benefit as much from this workbook as I anticipate. :) BTW, any plans for a 'workbook' for Affinity Photo in the works? :rolleyes: I could definitely use that as well.
  11. Yes. Go to this thread: Downloadable Affinity Photo Help 1.4.2 Epub for IBooks (May 2016) https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/13112-downloadable-affinity-photo-help-142-epub-for-ibooks-may-2016G
