  1. HVDB, Thank you again, that does work, I was just trying to explore an alternative process. Since your first response, I continued to play and I have now solved the grayed-out Inpaint command. This time after I sent it to AP, I used the eraser tool on the expanded area. Using the erasure tool converted the expanded area into "Partially transparent" and then the Inpatient was no longer grayed-out. While this worked is is definitely more convoluted than it is worth, so I'll stick to the process that you suggested.
  2. Thank for your quick response. However, I told it it worked fine if I had gone directly to AP before I attempted to Inpaint, so I know about going to Select > Alpha Range > Select Partially Transparent. But as I said, Inpaint is grayed out following the process that you outlined.
  3. I have an image that I straightened in Capture One (12) by “cropping outside the image”. After cropping, I sent the image to AP 1.6.7 and attempted to “Inpaint” the missing area. While the process works great if I send the image to AP before I attempt to straighten it, if I “crop outside the image” in C1 and then send it to AP, the “Inpaint” command is grayed out.
  4. I just restarted my Mac and I am unable to replicate the problem. I will continue play with the clone stamp to see if it comes back. Thank you for your help.
  5. Thank you for your offer to help. I really appreciate it. WRT shift/click, I have been using AP since it first arrived on the AP store (about 3 years ago). I only noticed the problems with the clone brush since the release of 1.6.7, before 1.6.7 I never had a problem with using the clone brush to achieve a straight line.
  6. i am on 10.14.1 and for me it is erratic, my symptoms are: some times it works fine some times the shift/click to initiate the clone works and other times it doesn't some times it goes off on a diagonal or horizontal and to add to problems, yesterday the beta locked up my mac and I had to manually shut down and restart in order to get my mac to respond. pressing "esc" would not make it happen.

  8. On December 6, Gabriel stated the "straight line" problem with the clone tool has already been fixed in the 1.7 Beta. I have been using 1.7 Beta for a couple of weeks and as far as I can determine , there is still "straight line" problem. Sometimes it works and other times it does not respond or the line goes off on a crazy diagonal. This is the beta version that I am using: I hope you guys are able to get it fixed before the final release.

  10. How are your disk read/write data speeds? I am using SSDs and, using Blackmagic to measure, get 1483/1409 MB/s respectively,
  11. When I was using CS6 and LR I used to follow Anthony Morganti's tutorials. When I was getting started with Affinity, I translated a few of his Photoshop tutorials into Affinity speak. This morning I stumbled on 10 YouTube Affinity Photo tutorials that were produced by Morganti. Morganti's tutorials were well prepared and easy to follow. Here is a list of seven of his tutorials: Morganti Affinity Photo tutorials 1 Quick Start https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbgONOJHa0Y 3 Overlays https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYDxeDZGQZs&index=4&list=PLllFqBuTM0WI8Pt47wBcg
  12. I am currently using Mojave, but the problem occurred with High Sierra also. When I choose High Pass sharpen > CMD J > Adjust the Radius, I can see a slight halo at very low Radius levels (less than 1). However, when I click Apply, the halo completely vanishes (the screen goes to a fairly uniform gray). The vanishing "halos" makes it difficult to estimate the best Radius setting to select. I am using Capture One 12 and I set the Raw sharpening to zero and noise reduction to zero before selecting "Edit in AP".
  13. I am trying to clone a straight line, but it does not seem to be working any longer. After selecting the source point (Option + click), I clicked once at the start point, then shift clicked at the end point.
  14. Toltec, Thank you. As I said in my post, I have been fighting this problem for about a year. I really appreciate your help.
  15. Thank you for your suggestion regarding toning-down my picture. While I appreciate and generally agree with your suggestion, I was hoping to get some guidance on how to perform color matching in Affinity Photo.
  16. I posted the problem earlier, but I am still trying to match the color of one area to the pixels in a surrounding area. In the area that I am attempting to change, the RGB values are: 31, 41, 13. The surrounding pixels have RGB values of 31, 31, 28. Depending on where I sample, there are some variations in the RGB values. My goal is to come close to a color match between the two areas. Attached is a picture of a pileated woodpecker that I shot under heavy forest canopy, the sun was directly behind me, passing through holes in the canopy. As the sunlight passed through the intervenin
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. I like it, nicely done!! Will you please outline what specific steps you went through to accomplish it? Thank you
  20. 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.
  21. 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."
  22. Thank you. I am trying to translate PS into AP and that instruction baffled me.
