fotojindra got a reaction from MartinK in AP Color Range Selection (HSL....)
while working with colors (reds,yellows,magentas.... HSL....) I am still missing the possibility to choose a range of colors I want to be working with. Something like a slider on the color line (do not want to describe more as it is a common feature in PS....). It is very useful Please....

Just found out that if you change Preferences-->General-->Language from Default to English and restart, you get the right welcome screen with the links
fotojindra reacted to toltec in Opacity/Hardness setting (not only for graph.tablet)
If a brush is selected, you can set opacity with the keyboard numbers keys, 2 = 20 % 44 + 44% and so on.
If you hover the pointer over the hardness number, turning the mouse wheel adjusts the value. I don't know if that will work on a tablet though.
The other shortcut is press Alt, hold down the right button, then the left button and drag down. That sound out of the question on a tablet though.
fotojindra got a reaction from Ian R in AP Win Bug - Fill layer, no choosen noise filled
seems to me the Edit / Fill... Shift + F5 not working properly (the custom color/noise part).
When I select this choice while being on Pixel layer and choose custom color by one click, and I do add some noise.... no noise is added......
P.S. Could you please also add a quick "Fill with 50% Grey" option as this is surely very often used Fill action :rolleyes:
fotojindra got a reaction from awhite in AP Win - TIFF compresion
I would like to know deeper about Export possibilities of TIFF format. In the Export settings I do not see the possibility to choose between ZIP, LZW, RLE or other compression possibilities. When I am exporting to TIFF it makes some file that seems smaller then compressionless file however I do not see what happened to it. I do not even know whether the file was exported losslesly or there was an information loss :(

fotojindra reacted to Patrick Connor in Affinity Photo for Windows Update 1.5.2 Available
Affinity Photo for Windows 1.6.0 is now live.
We are pleased to announce the first update for Affinity Photo for Windows (version 1.5.2).
The update can be downloaded from here. Once downloaded, close Affinity Photo and run (double click) the downloaded EXE to install it.
A list of the fixes this release contains is being prepared and will be posted shortly.
To install this version you will need to have the Affinity Photo for Windows already installed OR you will need to type in your email address and a valid Product key when prompted. When installing on top of an existing version you will not be prompted for the product key. If you need it you can find your product key (and a download button) in your Affinity store account, where you will also find the email address used to generate the key when you ordered the software.
If you have installed any previous beta version of Affinity Photo 1.5.2, that beta can be safely uninstalled before or after installing this release update, they are independent installs. The beta will stop working soon anyway.
Please report any problems you have installing or using this new version in the Windows forum here

fotojindra reacted to Chris B in [Cannot Reproduce] Can't drag macro in library to bottom
I can reproduce all the points you have made here;
1. Unable to move a macro when the + symbol is visible (it does work if you move the cursor just under the new category, for me at least)
2. Unable to drag a macro to the bottom of a category
3. Flashing while dragging the macro around
I'll pass these to development for you. Thanks :)
fotojindra reacted to dmstraker in [Cannot Reproduce] Can't drag macro in library to bottom
I've got a list of macros in the library. I can reorder them by dragging individual macros around (blue bar becomes visible), but I can't drag a macro to the bottom of a category.
Also, when I've created a new category at the bottom of the library and drag a macro down to this, the cursor gets a little '+' box on it, suggesting I can add the macro to this category, but when I release the mouse button, it is not moved.
There's also an odd flicker as I drag the macro, flashing back to its original place.
fotojindra reacted to MEB in AP Win - Bug - Mask to Below
Regular grayscale pixel layers are just that - pixel layers - they don't work as a mask unless you convert them going to menu Layer ▸ Rasterise To Mask as @shojtsy pointed out (that would be the "equivalent" of the Apply mask functionality you are referring to. As soon as you do the conversion the pixel layer becomes a mask and affects the whole document (all layers). When you right-click the mask in the Layers panel and select Mask to Below what you are doing is nesting the mask to the layer that's immediately below it (it can also be an adjustment or a filter not necessarily a pixel layer - although those have built-in masks as well). From this point forward the mask only affects the layer that's nested to and not all layers. The reverse of this operation is right-clicking the thumbnail of the mask in the Layers panel and select Release Mask.
Like other things in the program, there's more than one way to perform these actions: you can also do the same operation dragging the mask layer directly in the Layers panel to the position you want - so in this case to "Mask To Below" drag the mask layer over the thumbnail of the pixel layer to nest it. And similarly click and drag the mask thumbnail to "outside" the pixel layer it's nested to to "detach" it from that pixel layer.
fotojindra got a reaction from anon1 in AP Win - Update date question - 1.5.2? Macros improved?
Feels to me like the Photo 1.5.2 for Win is also on its way :) Mac version already announced, one of my bug tickets being [fixed], others closed after some discussion :D
Just hope we can be looking forward to see some great Macro features :rolleyes:

Apologies you never got a reply to this, but if it seems like you get this issue again please let us know.
fotojindra got a reaction from havovubu in Make Catalogue like Lightroom
Yes havovubu, that is a good idea. That could lead in some interesting results and message towards Serif. I like it ;) Please those of you who can state these additional features join the discussion..... I can only say what I do not like about LR :D
fotojindra reacted to havovubu in Make Catalogue like Lightroom
I totally agree Keith
For me the MAC OS keeps me away from Adobe products completely and for me at least measures up to LR.
I would be interested DC what specific features you consider to be included within a 'proper' DAM that the Windows & MAC OS (Plus of course AP) can't do? I am very happy to be persuaded otherwise :)
fotojindra reacted to v_kyr in Make Catalogue like Lightroom
Sorry, just suggested to DarkClown directly that he maybe want's to give XnViewMP a try here, instead of the OS related file system browsers, since that is available for all platforms (free for personal/private usage) and offers at least initial cataloging features.
fotojindra reacted to MEB in Macro/Library features
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
I'm sorry for the delay getting back to you. Thanks for your feedback.
The Macros/Library feature was introduced recently in version 1.5 both for Mac and Windows. There's still work to do here - from allowing more actions to be recorded to eventually other refinements to the UI/usability.
Just give devs some more time and you should see more improvements soon.
fotojindra reacted to anon1 in Make Catalogue like Lightroom
nobody wants a catalog in AP
we need a flexible browser and DAM (maybe even two apps) that is flexible so that it can manage databases/ backup as well as synced edits/ smart previews and sidecar files tethered shooting simple file browsing without importing as an option as well
and a DAM will be done
fotojindra got a reaction from DarkClown in Make Catalogue like Lightroom
No, please, no :(
Surely not for AP embedded inside :wacko: Someone is mixing RAW development, batch processing, File/Photo management solution - all together - here in this discussion.
LR is a different application and the things you are mentioning here can be solved by batch processing, however Catalogue works on different basis.... and there are also SWs which do not use catalogue and have good batch processing (eg. for weddings) like eg. Zoner used to have it till version 15 (I think, not sure about the version).
