  1. Yes, the macro will make the process easier and faster. Without the macro you would have to apply the same changes to every single image by hand. Changing the opacity between layers, does not make a lot of sence in my mind. When you set the blend mode of your live stack to mean or median, it does pretty much the same as if you would manually change the opacity of each layer like shown in the PetaPixel article you posted (4. Averaging the Layers). Both methods make each picture contribute the same ammount to the final image. Setting the blend mode simply does the job for you and you do not
  2. Hi, sure no problem. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/uq2m6qqh5gd66zs/AADZBl2IktFi2slioxarKELMa?dl=0 Keep in mind, that there are also other adjustments to the image (contrast, saturation, etc.). Look at the details as well as noise/grain levels rather than the overall result. There is the main difference between one image, a stack of images and super resolution stacking. For really good SR results one would need very good and sharp images to stack. I also found a good Youtube video on super resolution by a photographer I like. This can give you a good feeling for what to expect. He u
  3. Hi dronecrasher, First you open one of your images in Affinity Photo. It does not matter which one, because it is just used for creating the macro, which you are then applying on all of your images. Then you record a macro using the steps I outlined in my post above. ("View-> Studio -> Macro activates the side panel" means goto the Menu "View", there to the entry "Studio" and there to the entry "Macro activates the side panel"). For the rest follow my steps from the previous post. Some additional Infos: When applying the macro on all of your images, you should use an uncompre
  4. I ran into a simmilar problem. I have a very big document to edit (25917x19114px - brush size 14,9px). As long as I edit the mask of the HSL-adjustment layer with the actual image visible it works fluently. But when I switch to the mask view (alt + click on Mask Layer) the whole program gets extremely slow. The user interface (ie. switching forefround with background color) as well as the brush strokes. I try to mitigate using the mask view but for checking I can't really avoid it. The CPU is the bottleneck (90+% CPU load of affinity - rest used by system). Just moving the mouse cursor ov
  5. @ Wikinger: Sorry for posting so late. Thanks for the recommendation of IRIS. I will give it a shot soon. I did not have trouble understanding the french post. I learned french in school and what I didn't get I understood after using translate.google.com. I am glad for information, no matter in which language. If someone does not understand, there still is the option to ask for assistance. It's not necessary to get rude. @ Wikinger: Je suis désolé de poster si tard. Merci pour la recommandation d'IRIS. Je vais bientôt essayer IRIS. Je n'ai pas des problemes à comprendre le message français.
  6. Thanks for the reply. Might work. Have to try it on my next project. @MEB: Found a bug using the CRTL-Arrow method. V (Win) won't go to negative numbers when starting out at 0° and hitting CRTL-Arrow down. No problem when you are already in the negative range.
  7. Sorry, but the increments using you suggestion are way to big. I cannot use that method.
  8. That would really ruin the workflow. You cannot slightly rotate with the mouse using the transform panel and switching between mouse an keyboard to enter 0,x° then hit enter, check if works for me, then change for another 0,1°, check again, ... that's not really userfriendly.
  9. Hi, I am currently manually stacking a lot of moon shots. Thus i have to move and rotate the layers since the moon moves and rotates slightly. Moving wokes like a charm, but rotating could be a little better. Now I have to grab a corner node to rotate the picture, which makes me see only the very outer edge of the canvas. My suggestion would be to introduce a modifier key so I dont have to grab the node anymore, but could rotate the picture using the mouse anywhere on the canvas. This would allow me to rotate and check simultaniously. With shots like this not only the corner is of interes
  10. The live denoise filter does not denoise areas with high contrast. See attached file (especially noticable around the red feet as well as the base the gull is standing on). DSC_2499.afphoto
  11. No changes to that in 1.6. That's a bit disappointing. Should be rather easy to fix (onFileLoad -> if Preset =! "Default" -> applyPreset() ) There is also a minor bug while the Preset drop down menu is active (blue border). When you scroll the mouse wheel during the mouse pointer being on top of the presets, they are being flipped through (not bad possibility) but the image is not being updated with the settings of the preset.
  12. Anything on that? Did it get fixed with 1.6? Someone working on it? ...
  13. Hello, in an adjustment layer I painted in a mask. Later on I wanted another adjustment layer to have the same mask. Since it is not a simple mask, i would like to copy the mask or even better to extract the mask from the existing adjustment layer and paste it into a normal mask, which I can then move around in my layers as I need to. Is there a way to do so? I did not find anything on that. Greetings Matt
  14. Hello, I recently created a batch job using a macro. Unfortunately I forgot to uncheck the .afphoto file option after checking the .png file option. When I found out I wanted to stop the job but I did not find any way to do so. Since the job was to alter 34 images it took unnecessarily long to export to two file types. It would be very useful to be able to abort/stop a job. Please add that function. Greetings Matthias
  15. I am also currenty working on a work flow for super resolution. This is what I came up with: Record a macro after opening a file of the series (View-> Studio -> Macro activates the side panel) - Press the red record button in the macro panel - Apply the changes you want to be made (adjustments + resize document) - Press the "Add To Library" button in the macro panel (the one with the three squares and the plus) - Use the category "Macro" and give it an name you can later easily recognize what it does (e.g. "Super Resolution Preps") Now
  16. Hello, when I open a RAW file and process it using a preset, the next time I open a RAW file the last preset will be selected but not applied to the picture. I have to change it back to "standard" and then back to the preset that was selected, if I want it to be applied. (V. Win7) greetings Matthias
  17. I just tried it out with V. 1.52.69: My sources tab/window reappreares when I switch back to the clone tool - even after applying some changes to the image (but I only tried the brush). But like kbro says, after saving and reopening the file (affinity file format) the sources are gone, which is really impractical.
  18. Hi Chris, Thanks! It was the lens correction. However deactivating the lens correction in the assitant did not take immediate action. I had to deactivate it and then reopen the RAW file. It would be nice if I could toggle the lens correction like a filter on and off with immediate results. Greetings Matthias
  19. Dear developers, i recently noticed that a NEF image got slightly cropped when I imported it into Affinity Photo (V. You can see the difference on the right wing edge of the butterfly. When imported from the NEF the wing is slightly clipped, when I convert the NEF into a TIFF in an external program and then open it in Affinity Photo the wing isn't clipped (files are attached). Greetings Matthias DSC_8242.tif DSC_8242.NEF
  20. Please add an option for applying RAW settings using batch processing. I could not make a macro recording for that.
  21. Situation: I stacked several photos using the focus stacking feature. The sources window appeared correctly with all the stacked result plus the source photos. I then opened another photo (.nef) for editing in affinity photo out of xnview MP. The photo loaded and then I chose to swich back to my stacked photo. The stacked photo showed up but the sources window was empty. Is this a wanted behavior? If so why? Is there a way to get the content of the sources window back? Thanks in advance Matt
