    Automotive and motorsports photography.
  1. I have this same problem. My "Affinity Photo" app is in the Applications folder. When I am in Photos I select a photo, then Image | Edit With | Affinity Photo. It then loads into Affinity Photo just fine, I make all my adjustments, but no matter what I do I cannot get the end result echo'd back into Photos.
  2. Thats exactly what I want as well. For a logo design.
  3. Still using Aperture 3 for some of my work, and have Affinity Photo as my default external editor. If I pass the file from Aperture to Affinity photo as a PSD file, will Affinity write back as a layered PSD file? Wanting to store my masters back in Aperture if possible. Currently I've been storing a flattened JPG back to Aperture and the .afphoto file to a directory that I manage myself.

  5. I know how to resize a layer, how to rotate a layer, and how to shear it (make it a rhombus). What I can't figure out is how to turn that layer into a trapezoid. What I want to do, for example, is grab each top corner and push them both in towards the center. The bottom length will be greater than the top length, but top and bottom stay parallel to each other. Any way to do this? Thanks.
  6. Thanks guys. Will try both suggestions.

  8. Hmm... file attach didn't work.
  9. I'm kinda stuck here and not sure what to do next. I've attached a screen capture. What I've done so far is masked out just the car and applied a threshold to the car. You can see the transparent section around the car, and then the black and white portions of the car. What I want to do is replace all the transparent part and all the white part with a particular shade of blue. So the image will result with only two colors - black and that light blue. I tried putting a large blue rectangle on a layer beneath all this, but two problems. One, it doesn't affect the white. Two, the threshold layer above it turns the blue into solid black anyway. Tried doing a color replacement brush on the white but oddly it never too effect, even after I merged the threshold and masked layers into one. 1. So the obvious first question is, what are my next steps. 2. Next question is, can a layer mask be copied from one layer onto another layer? (not moved, copied). 3. Can I use the black and white image as a mask layer itself to let the blue background bleed through? 4. Any way to do this AND keep the threshold layer live so that I can play with the setting and see the blue/black result in real time? Thanks!
  10. Just tried this and my Topaz Labs plug-ins now show up, but I get this error trying to launch Simplify: ICP Memory in use or image size too big for the system. Huh?
  11. Glad I stumbled on this! Taking this further, if I want to use a brush on a mask then I also need to not select the color of the brush I use on the mask, but rather its opacity?
  12. Will this work in Aperture? And what file type must Photos (or Aperture) export for editing? TIFF? PSD? Thanks. :)

    Introduce Yourself

    Hi! New user here. My Photoshop CS5 won't run on my Mac w/o a serious down-rev of Flash (why does CS use Flash???) and I don't really want to do the monthly rental thing. So I found Affinity Photo. Glad I did. :) I do mostly automotive and amateur racing on the side.
  14. I think what you want to do is equivalent to a Photoshop align layers, correct? I want to do something very similar as well and wondering if I can. I have a large document that I scanned in two pieces, with some overlap in the scans. In Photoshop I could make it do a photo merge with auto-alignment and have one large, properly aligned and merged image. I think you and I are wanting basically the same feature, correct?
