  1. Thanks Ben. Maybe the help file needs modification, as the Transform panel does not 'report' these measurements. While using the tool, the Transform panel changes functionality to report distances (ΔX, ΔY), scaling percentage (S) and angle (ΔR) pertinent to the current transform. Cheers, H
  2. Gentle bump: not fixed in
  3. Hi, According to the help topic Transforming Objects, under "To transform a selected object about a specific point", using the Point Transform Tool: While using the tool, the Transform panel changes functionality to report distances (ΔX, ΔY), scaling percentage (S) and angle (ΔR) pertinent to the current transform. As far as I can see, the panel does indeed change, but the distances, scaling and angle are not updated: they stick stubbornly to zero. The tooltip does update, but doesn't display the delta values.

  4. The Inpainting Brush is destructive. I suppose if you wanted to keep the original dusty scratchy image then you could use a live filter.
  5. Hi, I've just been reminded to update to .118. But the update panel doesn't display the full number of the version I'm using at the moment: Cheers, H
  6. As an example (and to cover my earlier embarrassment): I have an intractably stuck piece of dirt on my sensor which shows up as a dark mark in plain sky backgrounds. I could get rid of the mark using Dust and Scratches by creating a Live Filter layer, adjusting the settings until the mark is no longer visible, then inverting the Live Filter layer and painting over the mark in white: Screen Recording 2019-04-14 at 09.00.23.mov However, for a quick fix I reckon it's probably more effective to use the Inpainting Brush - certainly fewer steps.

    The crabs say hi...
  8. "Does not seem to work" could be open to many interpretations. As far as I can see: With 32-bit RGB images, both Live and Destructive versions of the filter are disabled (greyed out). With 8-bit and 16-bit RGB images, the filter has some effect at low tolerances but doesn't add what I would consider to be dust, scratches or both: Screen Recording 2019-04-13 at 10.27.26.mov (the video is 16-bit Destructive). Similar effects with LAB colour - haven't had time to test this, or CMYK, or checking and unchecking the Channel Tolerance button. (I have Metal enabled - haven't tried the other way.)
  9. Oh for AppleScript...
  10. No, that was a single manual resize. I too tried running it as a macro, without success: the recorded macro resizes any image to the same absolute dimensions. As far as I can see there's no way of automating this, but I may be wrong. I agree that it would be very useful.
  11. You can do this in Document - Resize Document. Make sure the proportions are locked, then multiply one or the other by 1.1: Specify DPI and resampling options and click Resize. Rinse and repeat...
  12. In Designer: place the image, crop the image, click inside the image to ensure you are using the cropping tool, then drag: Screen Recording 2019-04-05 at 21.41.32.mov
  13. Hi, Just tried the Affinity Monochrome Photos extension. The Sharpening control doesn't seem to have any effect (or if it does, it's too subtle for my poor old eyes to detect). The same control in the old 1.6.0 extension definitely does modify the image. Cheers!
