  1. I regularly scan negatives color & black & white using my Epson V700. I scan negatives for both archival and current production. Yes I still shoot medium and large format film and mostly print digitally. I have worked over many years developing my workflow which starts in the camera. For color & black white negatives I scan using the Epson software that came with the scanner. It is pretty good if set correctly. For negatives or transparencies it is important than the shadows and highlights are not clipped. On every scan after preview and selecting the image I bring up the
  2. I did send an email to support with the download link at the time of my my post. But that link has probably expired so will send again later today. Cheers Mike
  3. Well I have and tried all the settings and cannot find a way to do this. So maybe you can point me in the right direction? Here is my scenario which I somewhat described in my original post. I have two Affinity Designer Files Open. The design is for a two page flyer. Affinity Image 1 is the front page, Affinity Image 2 is the rear (back page). Needs to be printed double sided and my Commercial Print Shop wants a single two page PDF. I cannot find any settings where I can specify create PDF export from the currently open files Note Files not File I know I can export a PDF from a single o
  4. Reading the AD forums regarding the ability to create multi-page documents is unlikely to happen as this would be a feature for Publisher when it is released. But what about the ability to export to PDF docs that are open in Designer to create a multi-page document. I am working on a two sided and four sided spread and while building each page in Designer is relatively simple, getting the PDF's created for the print shop is a regal pain. But if there was a PDF export option where would select "all open file" that would do the job as well as not infringing too deeply on the Publisher desi
  5. Not sure if this will work for AP/AD but in System Preferences for the Mac you can change the scroll direction, and on Windows 10 with Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Center under advanced options you can change the direction. Maybe this will work for you? MK
  6. +1 for this/ Can we add persistence for the position of the Window - remembers where we placed it the next time it os opened MK
  7. I have the Intous Pro Small and use it on both Mac & Windows systems for AP/AD as well as other graphic applications. I have found the wireless connection to work as well as running the Tablet wired. I have a pretty busy studio and my desktops can get really cluttered with all sorts of cabling for image/video/audio capture so having the ability to eliminate a cable is a god send. It also nice to be able to lean back in my chair in a more relaxed mode, put my feet up and be able to retouch a portrait without having a cable draped over my feet :) I find the internal battery lasts a
  8. There is something squirrely with this image file. In MAC Finder the preview looks great. Opening with AP 1.5.1 using the AP RAW Engine the file looks terrible and not much can be done. Opening in Adobe Camera RAW - image looks great. So given Finder preview looks good, went into AP and changed the RAW engine from AP to Apple. Restarted AP and went to open the image. Immediate crash in AP Tried this a couple of time all with the same crash. Not sure why using Apple RAW would cause AP to crash with this file, while the AP RAW just shows a really bad image but does not crash the application.
  9. Using AP 1.5.1 Step to reproduce. Open image turn off Mesh and leave unchecked Close image Open new image Mesh is shown even if show Mesh box is unchecked Enable Mesh, then uncheck and Mesh is hidden Cheers MK
  10. In my quest to ditch a well known Photo program I decided to use AP Photo to process a series of paintings for a local artist. I always start by including an X-Rite color patch with each painting to be photographed. I use this to set the white balance and if needed a custom camera profile. My question, with Adobe RAW the White Balance tool gives me a temperature of 4500 with a +5 tint, whereas the White balance sampled with AP 1.5.1 gives me a temperature of 6580 with a 41% tint. AP 1.5.1 gives a much lighter exposure than ACR (which is easily fixed) but at a loss to explain why there
  11. Well, you should be able to fix this in camera with your flash. What you need is a diffuser on your flash which will give you wrap around lighting as well as not having the flash directly hitting the eyes. Same technique for eliminating red eye. For informal images I use a Gary Fong diffuser, works very well it raises the light above the lens and gives really nice wrap around lighting- tad over priced for what it is but pays for itself in not having to eliminate eye problems in post. For more formal shots I use a small translucent umbrella either shooting through the umbrella or bouncing li
  12. I am running an iMac Retina 5K 27 -inch with Intel Core i5 with 24 GB memory with a regular spinning hard drive and both Designer & Photo fly. It came with 8GB of Mac memory then added and additional 16 GB of third party memory (OWC) and what a difference that extra 16 GB made. This set up was an upgrade from my Mac Mini. I am hooked on large monitors and love the screen real estate; and if one of our Windows machines is idle will connect a second 27" monitor to enable applications to run side by side at full screen. My most useful accessories are: Wacom Pro (Smal) tablet for
  13. Just an FYI, but pulling together some system info related to the Bug I posted about AP RAW and the Pentax 645Z. Right clicking an image in Adobe Bridge and selecting AP to open the file - Bridge tells me it is version 1.5.2 - but right clicking in Finder to open it shows as 1.5.1 which matches About AP. Same for Designer, Adobe Bridge is telling me I have version 1.5.8 whereas I have 1.5.4 installed No big deal but wonder how Adobe figures this stuff out :) Cheers MK
  14. running the latest store version of AP and processed a few RAW images from my Pentax 645Z. Opening an image you see, on the long side, a white line at one end and a black line at the other. Only happens on the longest side regardless of whether the image is in landscape or portrait mode. Tested with the Apple RAW engine and the images are fine. More than pleased to provide some sample images if this will help resolve the problem. Running AP 1.5.1 Mac 5k Retina el Cap 10.11.6 (15G1212) Cheers MK
