  1. Hi Robin, traditionally with any output for print, one would always convert or create images to be in the CMYK colour space. If you are getting things printed on a CMYK press it may help you visualise the finished printed images by converting to CMYK before import into designer or publisher. Do this for all images to get a consistent appearance. Ask your printer what colour profile they want you to use. It will vary from region to region. RGB to CMYK conversion usually looses some colours due to the limitations of the colour gamut. If a particular colour is essential then they can be requested as spot colours (these are manufacturer mixed colour that is guaranteed to match the requested colour). This is more expensive to print. Finished printed colour will also be affected by the paper stock you choose, its colour, its absorbency, etc. your printer may be able to do a sample on the edge off another job using the same paper.
  2. Thanks to both respondents to my question. That looks like it will work. And certainly the macros will be most helpful as i an hoping to create a macro for fixing small blown highlights in artwork photography. The macro will produce a blurred layer under a layer with hotspots selected, grown, feathered and deleted. The hotspots in question are caused by dust embedded in the art surface so pretty small and not practical to manually treat. Ideally this problem should be prevented at the photographic stage using cross polarization but this is not always possible. thanks again!
  3. Ideally I would like to be able to refine the parameters for Select by Tonal Range/Highlights to define the luminance range for "Highlights". Failing that is there a way to select all areas that are pure blown out white? or within a luminance range from 250 to 255 for example.
  4. I think Sony Cameras are an interesting example of differential pricing. The figures below are not meant to be accurate they merely demonstrate the pricing model! and yes I know there are many more versions of the A7 than described! They released the A7 for say 2000 (any currency unit works for this example They then released the A7 Mk2 for 2500 at which stage they reduced the price of the A7 but still kept supplying it. They then released the A7 Mk3 for 3000 at which stage they reduced the price of A7 Mk1 even further and the Mk2 by say 500 They now sell The Mk1 version for about 1000-1200, the Mk2 probably around 1800-2000, and the Mk3 at close to original price. They can afford to reduce pricing this way as all r&d costs are already covered on the older cameras. They still get sales from the older designs because they are still very, very good cameras that continue to work for many customers with less advanced needs. So a pricing model where the previous versions of software was still for sale at reduced cost when a newer version was released. The previous version would still work for many many customers with simpler needs. On the understanding that support would be limited and updates for the latest OS not necessarily available. With an upgrade path to latest version when needed.
  5. Yes please to the idea of Affinity Photo being able to open a Tif/jpeg/whatever and save back to the same format to make it suitable for roundtripping, from both C1 and Media Pro and presumably other media libraries.
  6. When in split views mode the RGB reading form the right hand side 'before' shot are incorrect. Values displayed appear to be from what would be in that area if the screen was in after only (not split) mode. Also would it not be more natural to have the before shot on the left? or allow swapping of positions.
  7. Thank you, plus you can drag of the tab to make a floating window ....precisely what I need! :)
  8. is it possible for example to draw a block then enter precise dimensions manually instead of having to drag to size?
  9. pen tool has some great snap options but I can't find snap to grid. I am sure its there but.....!
  10. The best application for doing this type of batch processing on a mac is Graphic Converter. It has extremely extensive batch processing capabilities and is worth having for just this reason. I have always used it alongside Aperture and now Capture One and Affinity Photo. For any batch image processing (resizing, file type, exif change) Graphic Converter is very powerful. Common batches can be saved as a preset.
  11. I also could really use charting and graph functionality.
