  1. Lojza and harrym.

     

    inpainting did nothing.  As if nothing happened.    Clone tool was fine, and would rather use inpainting.

     

    As I wrote later on, leaving all parts of the procedure in 16 bit, inpainting did accomplish the task.   Just what I wanted.

     

    harrym, resize in PS CS5 gives me finer control of resizing...than what I have learned in AF.  Maybe some day I will learn to do the exact resizing in AF.   Not today.

     

    I am not aware of AF having the capability to do gallery wrap..... Perfect Resize gives me the precise control I want!

     

    Hokusai.  Good question.  Glad you asked.  I don't have an answer.

     

    Cheers to all.   

     

    Sure glad I have AF ! ! ! ! !

    History of what I have been doing.   

     

    1)  original CR2 file opened and processed in AF 1.5.2 - beta 5.   Sized.  Exported.

     

    2)  tiff file final sizing  in PS CS5.  Saved.

     

    3)  tiff file given reflective borders for gallery wrap in Perfect Resize 8.  Saved

     

    4)  tiff file opened again in AF.   Made sure file was flattened.  This is the point at which inpainting failed.   Artist's name is duplicated twice at on the reflected sides.   I used clone tool to eliminate the extra artist's name.

     

    How can I have AF to inpainting with my procedure?  All suggestions appreciated

     

    Kind Regards,

    update......an hour later.    Everything above was done in 32 bit, and reduced to 16 bit....

     

    Repeated the procedure in 16 bit, and inpainting works.


  3. If I understand correctly, you are 'copying' old photographs.   I use cross polarization when I am photographing any image.   Photos not larger than 8.5 by 14, I use a scanner.

     

    Without the scanner, consider, if you will, two lights, 45 degrees off the axis........the direct line between camera lens and original photo.  Put polarizing filters over each light and another over the camera lens. 

     

    Look up on google, copying photo.

     

    Now, I know this doesn't answer your very question.   For the future, my suggestion would be helpful.

     

    Another AF user will help you.

     

    Cheers,

    Thank you Patrick.    I know I have posted the request before.   I have not received a positive answer, if .dcp camera profiles can be used.

    My apologies should I have offended anyone.

     

    Cheers,  David

  5. Excuse me don't.....should be doesn't         Cheers,   David Miller

     

    Need assistance in having an image file stay at 240 ppi.

     

    Obviously I am missing something.  My bad.

     

    In develop persona I have flattened the image file.  

     

    In resize I choose the actual file dimensions in inches I need, and set DPI to 240.      Resample is Lanczos 3 (non-separable).

     

    Ready to export, I check more, and all is okay.  

     

    Export as tiff, and I end up with 72 DPI and not the size I chose.  What is my error?  What am I missing?

     

    Please help.

     

    Kind Regards

  6. Lens Correction:   Now, this is no doubt an excellent silly question.   Samsung Galaxy S7, shooting in Pro mode, and getting 32 bit DNG image files.  Is lens correction available in Affinity Photo for Samsung Galaxy cell phone cameras?

     

    Let me write, I appreciate AF does accept 32 bit image files smack from the cell phone.

     

    Pro cameras are a pair of Canon 6D's.    There, cell phone is not for professional use........or is it?    

     

    How many other AF photogs are using cell phones for imaging?

     

    MacBook Pro 8,3, two of them,  two NEC MultiSync PA272 and a PA 271.

     

    Cheers,

    CameraProfiles;   I want to use .dcp camera profile.   How do I instalL into AP?

     

    To get the .dcp camera profile, I digitally capture the 24 patch X-rite cardboard target.  Convert that digital capture to dng with Adobe dng converter, and create the camera profile using

    dng profile editor.

     

    The .dcp camera profile works perfectly in my LR 6.3 workflow.  That is the reason I would like to be able to use the .dcp camera profile.

     

    Kind Regards,

  8. Hi Andy.    If .dcp camera profile is available already, please help me find it.

    Hi David,

     

    DCP profile support is on our radar - we hope to get it implemented some time soon. Sorry I can't be any more specific!

     

    Thanks,

     

    Andy.

     
     
    Kind Regards to AF TEAM ! ! !

    "Not a match for Photoshop 6" ... come on  :)

     

    I have been a Photoshop user all my life, using it for both to create artwork for digital and print. I have stopped buying it since CS4 - as I never had the need to buy each and every version, so the Adobe CC thing is completely useless for me. I have been hoping that a new product comes along which is a good alternative the PS affordable, and can handle Pantone and CMYK. Affinity Photo is exactly what I want. Sure it is still a bit rough around the edges, has bugs, and is still a way off, but what the heck, at the price it is a steal! Cannot wait until it goes gold  :) (any idea when this is planned to happen?)

     

     


  10. Thank you for responding, Leigh.  I have not printed from 'preview'.    

     

    I have not tried 'save current settings as presets'.

     

    I'll keep experimenting.   

     

    My biggest issue is having the image properly centered when it comes out of the  printer.   I think I have the image centered in the display, and, ooppss  it's not 

     

    Cheers,
