  1. I'm sorry I had to do it, I just put down affinity photo. It was with deep regret that I had to delete my favourite app from my computer. I suppose I should have held a service but I had no time for reminiscence, from start-up I have never had any problems with affinity photo. But just a few taps on the keyboard with the request for Apple to send a new app, which only took just a few moments to download. The problem was I had a few works in progress but now I have a fresh clean affinity photo to work with. The point of this topic was the complete ease of re-installing such a great sophisticated software in such a short time. (you could never do it with PS)
  2. Hi RC-R, your Gif belies your eyesight, either way you are one smart cookie, if you don't mind me saying so. I press the U key and hey presto! The blue and red Lines appeared when I hovered over the corner. I can now get on the rest of the tutorial, (thanks to you), hopefully without any more glitches. I've spent too much time with PS.
  3. Further to my previous input, closely examining the video, I noticed that when the pointer was on the magnet, then started to move across the document, the context menu bar changed and differed from my menu bar, which made no change. Also no tools were indicated except the pointer to changed to a cross on the video!
  4. Thank you RC-R, I had not tried the rectangular tool, I see the new context menu bar as in the video, and double checked the snapping manager checkboxes as suggested by MEB (thanks for your response) but again no red and green guidelines. The quality of the download for this tutorial was not that clear for me and I still cannot see other alternatives.
  5. Thanks for the reply RC-R. However I do have those items checked and the little magnet switched on. The video was clear and precise but I cannot get over the first hurdle. I did notice that when I had the new document displayed, the menubar I have differed from the video. Remember at this time I have no layers. If you have an opportunity, check out the video. Regards Brian
  6. Hi David, only recently I had need first of all convert a very small photo to a sketch, then add a border. The sketch was converted usingTopaz, placed it in AP, selected all, then using the marquee selection tool to inset to approximately 5 cm. Made the first colour with the paint brush.I then de-selected. After which I added the final border edge, approximately 15 cm. I changed the colour slightly, but this time I reduced the opacity 80percent to allow the previous border to show through. The borders I only approximated, just for me to see the effect. I will play around further to see what AP can do with effects. One thing more, I tried to follow Allan tutorial but only got as far as the document. I could not get the green and red Lines showing when Hovered over the corner. I would like to progress right through the tutorial. Is he could let me know what I'm doing wrong I would appreciate it. Brian
  7. Any suggestions to convert a photo to a painted image. I know various methods in PS but I am here now with Ap, I seem to recollect something before within the confines of this software but my memory has failed me. Can any Forum members help out. Thank you in advance Brian
  8. Thank you P, for helping me in narrowing my search, it sorted most of my problems, Brian
  9. As suggested by Mbd, a mere detail in the overall concept of such an advanced Photo software. To consider going back to mummy it is not worth considering, Brian
  10. I have been engrossed for the last three months finalising three albums thanks to Affinity, and it is only now that I am starting on the day by day prints. I noticed in one of the tutorials a reference to a composite of cropping which I cannot locate, if you could give me an indication on this I would appreciate it. In the crop scenario, I am used to having the DPI to select. With an absolute specific dimension, how do I maintain the ratio for a 300dpi print. I must admit it is so easy contact the forum for help. Brian
  11. Thank you very much J for your prompt response, for some reason or another I remembered about the PNG file, but at my age I have too much in my head most of it of little use. It worked a treat after sorting out the size issue. The forum has great value to Affinity and to the people that uses its software. A great service. Kind regards Brian
  12. I have recently had need to retain an image and exclude the background .For example my selected image has a transparent background. I need this image as a logo to be imposed in an album, but when exported it retains a white background, how can I eliminate this. Brian
  13. Hi Paul, thank you for requesting Photos for a showcase, however I will be too critical of my Photos after competing in major competitions, that is why now I am happy to have Affinity, which allows me at my age (and equipment) to develop at my own pace, just like an old bull in a field of cattle, just enjoying myself, good luck to you, I would love to shoot up there in Auckland, kind regards Brian
  14. At some stage I was going to comment on how weak shadows/ highlights where with photo persona. I found no use for them in developing photos. Shadows where weak, and highlights did not operate hardly at all, however in raw files the difference was significant, and extremely practicable. Any reason for this, are you still trying to develop it more in Photo. At this time if I have a JPEG image that requires S/H, I change it to develop change it there. Has anyone else considered this.
  15. Sorry J, but you have the cart before the horse. If you use this method you cannot see the high pass filter. Surely the high pass filter has to be applied before overlay modes, otherwise you cannot see the degree of sharpening. Either way, I I Have tried it now two or three times and it's working perfectly I can manage and flatten, no problem. It must have been a glitch. But thank you for your response, Brian
