    Satori Sans - Free Font

    Yes! Satori FilmFX 64 was the pro app. Satori Paint was sold at a much cheaper price and eventually given away in computer mags. If I recall correctly there was a Web FX as well. The developers were Spaceward Graphics in Cambridge UK. The staff member who frequented the Satori forum was Mark Graham. Superb software! I used FilmFX 64 from 2000 until about 2005. Unfortunately Spaceward went under in the early 2000's (maybe earlier?). Interestingly Spaceward Graphics was originally an audio recording studio — Spaceward Studios

    My first HDR manipulations using AP

    Love the pareidolia face on the back wall of the Arizona Monsoon Ruins image ...in good taste!

    Windows version very slow

    On my ageing ASUS ROG G750JS laptop (bought July 2014) from double clicking a Pentax 16MB .DNG raw file APh launches and opens the file in 13 sec. That time includes APh loading 537 active fonts (and whatever else it needs to do). Opening the same .DNG from inside APh takes just under 4 sec (ie File > Open Recent). Specs: Intel Core i7-4700HQ 2.4Ghz (Turbo 3.4 GHz) Quad-core Processor (4th Gen) 16 GB DDR3 RAM 1.5TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive, 256 GB Solid-State Drive (APh installed on SSD) 17-Inch screen, GeForce GTX 870M 3GB Windows 10 Home

    Auto lens corrects my fisheye Photo

    In the Assistant Manager on the toolbar have you selected in 'Lens corrections' the 'Take no action' option? My Pentax fisheye files (.DNG) open as shot with the 'Take no action' option selected.
  5. In the old Viveza the image needs to be zoomed to 100% for accurate colour. (edit — Viveza inside APh that is). Perhaps it's the same in the new Viveza?

    Viveza 2 Color issues

    There certainly is...workaround that is. Zoom to 100% view in Viveza. Hopefully this will be fixed in APhot 1.7

    Concept illustration poster

    Nice work! I really like the grunge like graphic style of the third one (2016).

    Stoned caterpillar

    I wonder if it's the same field the dog has lost his ball
  9. Resene is a New Zealand paint company that over the years have produced some rather interesting colours. Here's the links for .ase .aco and as jpgs Cad, SketchUp and other app swatch file formats are also available as downloads

    Best DPI save to accommodate all print sizes

    Hi Nilla. First of all I think your post should be the 'Questions' section—it may not get noticed here. What I suggest is contacting your site host and ask them what their printing company requires—ie file type (highly likely to be .jpg) and DPI. The subject of DPI generally, resizing at different DPI and print input/output can be quite bewildering. 300 DPI, the magic number that's considered to be the de facto, is not necessary correct nor required. The print company may accept DPI at 160 to 200 DPI. They may have software that lifts 72 DPI to their required DPI (I use OnOne's Perfect Resize for that purpose). When you have that info then you're in a better position regarding what's required and how to output/save from AP. My site host is SmugMug. Are you using them by any chance? SmugMug File Preparation

    Polishing Up with Affinity Photo ....

    The completed image, to me, has a kind of surreal look—in particular the buildings to the right of the tall tower plus the water and reflections. The tree branches on the left add to the surrealism imho

  13. I'm not having that issue copying into Inkscape (current ver. 0.92.3) with 'Copy items as SVG' checked in AD. In Inkscape I checked at max magnification (25,600%) and the vector is as it should be. I don't have/use Corel or Xara so can't comment on those.

    Colourisation - Vietnam War

    Superb colouring! You have the talent Gab... My only concern is the original image ...front soldier's pinky thrusted into the rear soldier's nose. Not a good look. Bad Gestalt! Moving the camera toward the right (if possible—in the heat of the battle?) would have framed both beautifully

    Colourisation - Part2

    Agreed! (to the area in question being part of the wall, not the uniform). However it looks like to me there could have been retouching done to narrow the waist (due to juxtapositioning with the jacket sleeve?)
