  1. Thanks for your feedback, appreciated, however in retail version '641 for Windows, the buttons I described function correctly, i.e. I can resize the brush and alter the hardness holding down Alt on the tablet, pressing the lower pen key and depressing the pen, this does not function correctly in the latest Beta version.
  2. @Mark Ingram, Thanks to the Dev team for working on the tablet problems. Using Beta '674 and Huion Inspiroy HS610 the pen now will paint and I have control of the brush pressure. I cannot alter the brush size and hardness via the equivalent tablet & pen controls, [(key 6 - )ALT + (Lower Pen button-) Right Mouse Button & (Pen depressed-) Left Mouse Button). The icon for the brush size and hardness is displayed correctly but cannot be altered. It works fine with the actual ALT button & mouse keys. If the pen is held in the same position the colour selected will start to pulse, i.e. turn on and off at a regular rate.
  3. Using a Huion HS610 Tablet & Affinity Photo Retail version Windows ink enabled in Tablet software, but not in Affinity. Using Brush: Pen pressure works; ‘right mouse button’, assigned to lower pen button, works OK. Brush hardness & size works with ALT key(assigned to key 6) & using the pen nib depressed and holding down the lower pen button, (Mouse Right Button). The upper pen button is assigned Control + Z, (UnDo), works OK. Selecting the ‘Pen Tool’ works as expected using the tablet. With Windows Ink ON in Affinity they do not work. Beta Version Windows ink enabled or disabled has no effect when using the Tablet. The tablet Pen is moving the brush on the monitor, but will not paint. Unable to control pen size and hardness, via tablet. Selecting the ‘Pen Tool’ will not draw lines. Thanks
  4. @walt.farrell, Biff was referring to the new 1.7 video : https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/330446061 by James Ritson.
  5. There is a new RAW Image Extension for Windows 10 that adds "native viewing support for images captured in raw file formats produced by many mid- to high-end digital cameras". Apparently however, CR3 is not among them, also you have to have Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version number 1903), to be able to install the extension. The package was developed by "libraw" open source project. Link: https://www.libraw.org/supported-cameras to view current list.
  6. HarryB: In the link sent yesterday, with respect to the borders, if you want the photo to be a specific size, e.g. for a Projected Display Image competition, it is best to start with a layer that is made up of all the previous visible layers, i.e. left mouse click the top layer, then when highlighted, right click and select “Merge Visible”, which creates a new combined layer. So that the size of the photo is not changed, select the "Alignment" to be "inside"; the "Colour" e.g. white, to isolate the photo from the display background and a suitable thin pixel size. Please see attached image.
  7. No it's not as easy, but have a look at this video on thin border creation - InAffinity: "Creating Outline Border Using Effects (fx) in Affinity Photo", - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=af_tp75MDKQ With the 'problem' borders you have created already, zoom in 150% and see if they are there. Sometimes parts of the border are not displayed accurately, but if you zoom in, they are there.
  8. The problem is knowing what the original RAW file looks like. Most RAW editors will alter the image to 'improve' the basic look of it, otherwise users compare it to PS, PSE etc. which alter the basic RAW file. Also photos viewed on the camera only show a JPG image, even if you have set your camera to RAW only, (the jpg being part of the RAW file). If the "Tone curve" is disabled in the 'Develop Assistant', the resulting image is dull & flat, but the colours are certainly improved from the 1.6 version, please see two images attached. I hope that at least you will persevere with APh. and there are a lot of good people here willing to help.
  9. I have two colour managed, (Xrite i1 Display Pro), Dell screens, U2415 & 2412M. I have taken a photo, with a 'Panasonic Lumix G9' of the two screens with the same image displayed at the same size. The image is a RAW file, (taken with a 'Panasonic Lumix G9'), opened into both programs, without any further adjustment. The left image is using Affinity Photo Beta and the right is using version It actually looks more pronounced on the live screens, the right screen (1.6) is very dull, de-saturated. The left hand photo displays better, however it would be useful to know how much the "Assistant Manager" has been altered between the two versions of software. [I have reduced the size of the jpg file to enable uploading].
  10. Hi RC-R, Thanks for the link to the older correspondence.
  11. Morning cfyckt, Sorry for the delay, (there's probably a substantial time difference in our two locations). As you have probably found out, the easiest way to locate the Beta site is open Affinity Photo, Help>Welcome, then click the "User Forums", (bottom right corner on the welcome dialogue box). Scroll down to Affinity Beta Software Forums>Affinity Photo Beta Forums, click "Photo Beta on Windows", select the appropriate Affinity Photo Windows Customer Beta. Currently [https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/34-photo-beta-on-windows/]. Hope it helps.
  12. Hi cfyckt, have you tried down loading Beta, which has support for the G9?
