  1. Hi Folks, I'm pretty sure there is going to be a simple and easy way to do this that is glaringly obvious... but I still need to ask. Lets say I have created a number of objects and I want to know what the distance/pixel count is between those objects... is there a way to show this? Cheers is advance Mark
  2. Is there any more word on an Affinity DAM?
  3. Cheers folks, suddenly came to my sense and figured this out just after I put this post up. Thanks again though. Mark
  4. Hi Folks, After some help again. I have a logo I am trying to export for me to use in a Wordpress site. I have created my document (1200 x 300px) with a transparent background selected. I created he logo (Basic white text) and then exported it as a Jpeg. When I then uploaded into Wordpress all i get is a white background colour. Any ideas or suggestions? Cheers Mark
  5. Hi folks, I know this is an old feed but I am after the same thing but can't seem to figure it out. I have tried the above steps but seem to hit a brick wall. Is anyone out there able to give me a more step by step (Idiots guide) approach. Thanks in advance again Mark
  6. Hi Ken, Welcome to the forum... I had a very similar question a while back. Check out this thread... it may help. Also... try playing around with Gradient Map Adjustment... I found this really helpful. All the best Mark
  7. Hi Folks, I have come across the fact that ON1 is offering out ON1 effects 2018 as a free download. It comes with a load of Photoshop (Sorry for swearing) plugin's. I am having some trouble with getting these to work with Affinity. I have come across old posts on here from the start of the year stating that Affinity does not support ON1... does anyone know if that is still the case? I successfully use the NIK (Formerly Google) collection Plugin's on a regular basis and with some great success with Affinity. Any ideas? Mark
  8. Hi Folks, I'm after some help again.... So I really admire two very very good automotive photographers... Amy Shore and Laurent Nivalle. Both have a similar(ish) style and this extends to their editing process. I have read numerous interviews with both of them and they both mainly use Photoshop (Sorry to swear!) rather than lightroom and I am very keen to try and re-caprture their respective styles but by using Affinity Photo. I have attached two files which are photos from both Laurent and Amy respectively. Can anyone out there point me in the right direction to try and obtain the same style? Obviously I don't want to be copying their styles out right as that is not what photography is all about but I am very curious as to how to achieve this. Thanks folks, hope you can help. Regards Mark All credit for the attached two images go to Amy and Laurent.
  9. Hi Folks, It's been a while since I've been on here. Must mean I've been getting better with AP and AD... hmmm. Anyway.... Artboards, what are they all about? I understand the idea behind them, useful for showcasing projects etc but they do confuse me and I am after some help. I have created a number of social media ready type banners and profile photos etc that I plan to use across various social media platforms for a new upcoming venture. I have each of these created as separate files having used both AD and AP to create them. I then thought it would be good to have them printed so that I can pin them up in my office and mull them over. I thought what would be the best way to place all of these separate files onto a single sheet and print it to display it. Then I thought of artboards. Now first things first am I being daft and this isn't a good use of art boards in this situation? secondly. How the hell do I place all my separately created layer files onto a single artboard? is it possible or am I just getting the whole concept totally wrong and this isn't going to work? Any help would be greatly appreciated as alway. Thanks Mark
  10. I guessed as much but I have no idea how to actually do it. Any ideas?
  11. Firstly, Thanks folks, very useful answer (As per usual in this forum). So time for the second silly question then.... lets say I have achieved the look I was after by using the LUT and then doing some other tweaks via the develop/Tone Mapping persona etc... Is there a way to save ALL of these adjustments including the application of the LUT so that it will be possible to apply it more quickly to future photos or for example I have 200 plus photos I want to have the same effect, how can I re-create it across all the images without starting the process from scratch? Cheers Mark
  12. I am just going through their website now. Certainly looks like what I am trying to achieve. I have never used 3rd party applications/software with AP though so I am slightly unsure as to how to apply it at the moment... Need to brush up on using plug-ins etc. Many thanks for this though
  13. Hi Verysame, I assume that is just a LUT plug in? looks great. I will look at trying that shortly. Thanks again Mark
