  1. Hey folks, I just wondered if there is a way to see the alpha value of a pixel? Thanks in advance and best regards, rorando
  2. Hey team, I am using OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 with German language, but have Affinity Photo set to "English (United States)". As can be seen on the screenshot, the menus, tooltips, etc. are in correct language, but the brush names are still German :) Best regards, Rorando
  3. Hi Chris, thank you, that helped. Best regards, Rorando
  4. Hey folks, I noticed that when using the gradient tool, the color selection display doesn't seem to work right. When using the color picker, the chosen color isn't updated and when using the gradient-slider, the old color overrides the new chosen one etc. Please check the video I made for clarification: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1458057/affinity/gradient_bug.mp4 PS: Sorry for the hyperlink, but forum didn't let me upload the mp4 video ... "Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file" To be honest, the error message doesn't really tell me what I can do about it.
  5. Hey Chris, thanks for responding so quickly, I am glad it will be forwarded to the developers. Regarding the forum error message, I was a bit surprised since the "max. single file size" is displayed with 20MB but my video file only has 10.7MB. Best regards
  6. Hey, thanks for the quick response! You are right, I wasn't in original size view, it was zoomed to 25%. In original size, the preview and result are afaict identical! Though, when viewing the image at 25%, the denoiser-preview looked much more interesting/clean. I guess the algorithm uses less precision for scanning, using only a quarter of the image material? Is there a chance to "provoke" these results on any other way? I'd love to get this kind of noise removal / smoothing for my images! :D
  7. Hey guys, I just noticed a strange behavior when using the denoise filter (found in Filters → Noise → Denoise) In my case, I was working with an image which has dimensions of 3264x2448: When using the Denoiser and dialing in quite extreme values for the luminance parameter, the in-app-preview shows me the desired effect, but as soon as I hit "apply", Affinity Photo takes time to render the effect, and after calculating, the result is very different to what the preview showed me. In all of the experienced cases, the final effect is much weaker than the preview showed me. If you have problems to reproduce this behavior, please let me know. I can then provide the image and the steps that make the problem clearly visible. Best regards, Rorando
  8. Hey dev-team, I am always getting a crash when doing the steps shown in the video. (OS X El Capitan, 10.11.6) Best regards, Rorando crash_lowres.mov
  9. Hey folks! In the "Vorschau"-App by Apple (Preview.app), the same German terms are used. The behavior is the same, too. Best regards, Rorando
  10. Thanks for pointing the direction to the overlays. I just tried it out and found it's possible to use several overlays in Develop mode. An overlay can be a brush or gradient process. That helps!
  11. Hey folks, When developing a photo, I saw that there are several tools to edit my RAW photo. One of them is the gradient tool, which is amazingly helpful. My question is, can I use more than one gradient? When I'm trying to create a new one (by dragging), the previous one disappears. If not, are there any other ways to have more processing steps before developing? Let's say ... Exposure Correction on the whole image plus one gradient Exposure Correction in a section of my photo? Thanks for your thoughts in advance, best regards, Rorando
  12. Hi R C-R, thanks for helping me! Didn't know I had to look further into the Pen tool, that's just perfect. Best regards, Rorando
  13. Hey folks! I would like to know if there is a way to draw lines in Affinity Photo. With the Paint Brush Tool, there is a "continue last stroke" feature, but it's not really creating a line, since it paints over the last stroke when using lower opacities: Also, it's impossible to draw horizontal or vertical lines that way... Thanks in advance for your help, best regards, Rorando
  14. Hi Donato, thank you very much. Haven't seen the tool. Best regards, Rorando
  15. Hey folks, I am in a situation where I wanted to correct an image. For this, I needed a tool to just paint one pixel in a certain color. When I selected the paint brush tool, changed width to 1px, opacity and hardness to 100%, Affinity Photo still created a "smooth dot". So my chosen color "black" became gray and had a few gradient pixels around it etc. example: How can I just draw a single pixel in a desired color? Thanks in advance and best regards! Rorando
  16. Hey guys. I am new to this place but noticed after a few posts that this forum seems to not properly display the formattings of posts. In editing view, everything is just as desired, but in the final state, when being displayed later, the lists for example, are gone? Is this just my problem? (OSX El Capitan, Safari 9.1.2) Best regards, Rorando
  17. Hey folks, just noticed a strange glitch when doing the following steps: open/create a document choose Rectangular Marquee Tool draw a rectangle (leave some space around the borders so there is area for testing) choose Move Tool click on the rectangle (that we just drew on step 3) and drag it somewhere else now, if you use the arrow keys on the keyboard to move the object, the object jumps back to its original place and moves from there on. You can repeat this behavior from there and it will occur again and again. I'd be glad to see this fixed :) Best regards, Rorando
