  1. Thanks again, Carl. I was in process of posting the statement below when you beat me to it. But I always appreciate the helpful responses that you get on this forum. "Help was, as usual, helpful. By pre-selecting all the missing edges after a Rotate, I can use Edit>InPaint to inpaint all of them at once, rather than using the InPaint Brush to do each side individually."
  2. Ah, thank you! Now I can stop looking for something that only exists in a Persona that I seldom, if ever, use. Guess I'll go read the Help some more and see if it will tell me what Edit>InPaint is supposed to do and when. Edit: Thanks to both Carl123 and MEB.
  3. Okay, this is twice that the auto-inpaint function in Photo for the desktop has been mentioned. How do I go about using that? I'm using Beta 1.6.4 running under El Capitan and Edit>Inpaint is grayed out in the menu. I'm assuming that is how you find/use auto-inpaint, or should I be looking elsewhere? And what, do I need to do after straightening? Help, please.
  4. Wish it was fixed in Photo Beta 1.6.4 but it's still popping up at every Persona change just like always. Obviously not an easy fix or it would have been done already.
  5. There are excellent DAMs out there already. And some of us have invested some heavy bucks in them. I've been using MediaPro since it was called iViewPro and it still provides me with the all the "management" I need. Or want. I use MediaPro to manage my files; Affinity to process and edit them. Affinity may come out with an exceptional DAM at some point. If so, I will consider it but in the meantime, I'd rather spend my time using what I've got than whining about what I don't.
  6. Well, personally, I think what Affinity has done so far has been pretty "fab." And I'm only looking forward to the improvements they will make.
  7. Even on an iPad Air 2 and without the Pencil option, it is a powerful and much appreciated drawing tool!
  8. Ah! Overlooked that part of your post.
  9. It works, but erratically and incompletely. The only way I've found so far to get it to work as skiphunt wants is to Duplicate the layer, rotate and crop, then Rasterize the layer and use Current Layer and Below to Inpaint the transparent sections. Even then, it acts more like the Clone tool than true inpainting.
  10. That's what I'm doing too...now! I have also started immediately creating a Snapshot. That way, I can experiment as much as I like, then select the Snapshot layer in History and use Default>Revert under More to go back to the original state.
  11. Good! It's not just me. I don't know why this was left out of the iPad version. The OS version not only has Close (with an option to Save or not) but also you can choose whether or not to save History with the file. Most of the time I prefer not to. And I'd like that option on the iPad as well. Or at least, an easy way to delete History steps I don't want to keep.
  12. Why do we not have an Option to Exit without Saving? If you totally mess up an image by doing something irreversible, you cannot exit without Saving that. In trying to find a way to eliminate an experimental series of adjustments, filters, etc that I no longer wanted to keep, and certainly did not want cluttering up my History and reducing the number of Undos available, I also experimented with Revert. It will do what I was hoping, which is take you back to the step you clicked on. Including all the way to the original first layer! Problem solved. Except that Revert is irreversible. And there's no way to get out of that situation without Saving, which overwrites the home screen image. Perhaps what I did was stupid but it should not have been fatal. And it should not be necessary to first duplicate every image you want to work on, just in case you make an irreversible move.
  13. Thank you, Lee! That was the problem. It would have been nice if that had been covered in Help because I certainly went there first. But I do appreciate the quick response. I was going nuts trying to figure it out on my own.
  14. I had not tried to apply an FX until today. I'm getting no context bar for any selected FX. I do get a context bar with full controls for Adjustments and for Filters. In testing, once I have selected an Adjustment or Filter, the control icon for that Adjustment or Filter remains in the Tools bar, even when I tap on the FX panel and select an effect. And tapping on that Adjustment icon while the FX panel is active takes me back to that prior Adjustment or Filter. Is this a bug or a glitch in my system? I've not only restarted Photo; I've restarted the iPad. Neither helped. I'm running Photo on a 128 gb AirPad2, latest iOS, if that matters. I did have an earlier issue that was corrected by deleting and re-installing Photo. I'd rather not do that but will if I'm the only one with this issue.
