    Color cast

    Thank you, guys!! I really appreciate your help. After following your instructions, I now realize how much more I have to learn. I was able to get them to work, just not as well as you did. One variation that I added, was to use the selection brush tool. I was more comfortable with this tool since it behaved the same way as the quick selection brush in CS6.
  2. I took this picture of a Pileated Woodpecker under forest canopy; the sun was behind me and was shining through holes in the canopy. As you can see, there is a heavy green cast covering the feathers on his shoulder (he is a male) and softer green on the tree and his tail feathers. Since I can see distinct feather detail through the green, I believe that the color is not caused by an intervening, out of focus leaf, but was caused by light filtering through the canopy. Bottom line, how can I best remove the color on the shoulder and salvage the picture? piliated.tif
  3. I like it, nicely done!! Will you please outline what specific steps you went through to accomplish it? Thank you
  4. I've got this shot of a GB wading in partly shadowed water. Not a great shot, but I want use it to improve my PP techniques. I know, I should have used a polarizing filter but I did not have it with me. Does anybody have a suggestion on how to best remove the glare from the unshadowed water? I am using C1 and Affinity Photo.
  5. Thank you. This is the best explanation that I have seen.
  6. I am starting to teach AP to my granddaughter and she posed a question that I was unable to find an answer, "Under Refine selection, what is the difference between Border Width and Ramp and when do you use each one?" The description for Border Width says, " Border width—expands the selection by adjusting the width of its border. Drag the slider to set the value." The description for Ramp says, "Ramp—changes the size of the selection. Drag the slider to set the value. Negative values will shrink the selection while positive values enlarge it."
  7. Thank you. I am trying to translate PS into AP and that instruction baffled me.
  8. I have been looking at a PS tutorial and the author double-clicked on a layer that in-turn brought up a layer style drop-down window. He then said that in order tp make his tutorial work, I would have to deselect "Transparency Shapes Layer". How does this instruction translate into AP? See attached screen shot.
  9. Thank you, my mistake, I did not spot the color dodge blend mode in the pull down menu.
  10. I found this PS tutorial "One trick to Add Light or shine to anything in photoshop". Does anybody know of a way to do it AP?
  11. Thank you. This sure beats having to create my own brush
  12. Here is the PS link: The specific step that threw me was when the author to right click on the line and drag down to "stroke path".
  13. Is anybody aware of a tutorial to create a starburst brush in Affinity Photo. I found several PS tutorials but I was unable to completely translate them into AP.
