    Brush overlay

    The highlights and shadows dialogue doesn't function on a brush overlay when using tone mapping

    Crash without recovery

    There has been another crash after completing complex layer processes, this time on a single frame when Develop was started. My system can find no crash report.

    Crash without recovery

    Hello Chris, I hope I can't reproduce it. As soon as I can I shall check for a crash report but I was surprised APhoto offered no recovery so perhaps it was a system fault. This is a low memory PC I am currently using on holiday but with a faster processor. The save-as-you-go precaution has been ignored of late due to the stability of Affinity software. Michael

    Crash without recovery

    Hello, sorry to report a bug in the new update. Having completed a panorama entailing much detail work, APhoto crashed out when 'apply' was clicked to a defringe filter, losing everything. Therefore no file to submit! Michael

    An apology: after making a small test production and reading through 'Help' I see that indexing is included. Michael
  6. Hello. This really is a first impression. But your startup logo seems to me to lack the classy impact quality of those for Photo and Design. It feels aggressive in the wrong way and amorphous. Off-putting! A welcome additional module would be indexing not just contents. Michael

    Black holes

    I also use the inpainting brush a lot. This peculiarity lasted until I changed all the settings for the brush and hasn't occurred since then. If it does I shall attempt a video.
  8. In your very interesting tutorial on adjusting wide angle lens perspective distortion the results don't correct the building distortion. I used photogrammetry for some years and in order to retain more accurate representation of the subject matter after making the adjustments shown it is also necessary to adjust the image's vertical dimension. Possibly this isn't considered important because the tutorial is not about photogrammetry but is perhaps of interest anyway.
  9. Does anyone know why the inpainting brush in AP and AP Beta goes cosmic and paints black holes?

    personal image

    Thank you MEB: so simple!
  11. How do I find how to insert a unique image into the profile identification circle. I can find only for a header image. Michael
  12. Perhaps this is covered in 'non destructive develop' but it would be good to have a more flexible output from RAW panoramas such as HDR from single RAW frames, especially for highlight and shadow control. As things stand there is rather too little.

    Overlay erase brush

    The usefulness of the overlay brush tool will remain somewhat limited until the difficulty with the overlay erase brush tool is resolved. Because it won't spill smoothly it is impossible to use it with any hope of precision because scrubbing is needed to obtain consistency. Is there any hope of this, or should I seek another method? Do these overlay brushes require a fast processor? Currently I use an i5 1,8. Might this be the cause of the difficulties?

    Saving before developing

    Yes. Thank you for pointing that out. Should have looked!
  15. I can't find any reference to this though it might be something I have misunderstood but it should preferably be possible to save a working APhoto file before developing and losing all the overlay work. This can be quite elaborate and takes some time.
