  1. I would like to have only the colours I use in the actual document to show in the swatch tool. This is so non intuitive!
  2. Granted, I did not formulated my thoughts correctly; English is not my language and, from French, I really messed up the translation. Sorry for that. To Mr. Reeder: I would respectfully ask you to ignore me, learn to be cool, get a life for yourself… what ever but would you be so kind as to stay off my back! Thank you.
  3. I think not! The reason is in the name Fast Stone viewer. The same the finder does on Mac to quickly render an unsaved preview that does not reflect the work done on a file.
  4. Of course not and that is no omission since the RAW data can't be modified… However, if on Mac, the finder may generate a preview.
  5. • Did you look at these? https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/10119-in-house-affinity-photo-video-tutorials/
  6. • …too happy to be scary! Cool work Stuart! :)
  7. • In my experience, clipped highlights are lost info… no info, I don't know how to change the colour of "nothing"! One may paint in a transparent coloured layer maybe!
  8. • In meine Fotografische Auge, Bodo, einfach ausgezeichnet!
  9. This comment of yours ends my Sunday in a cheerful way. Thanks!
  10. Thanks Charlychuch! LOOKS? Nah, how can anyone want to compete with that punk! …a couple more days and I'll get over both: my ankle and illusions. ;)
  11. Thanks buddy! Good fortune = broken heart! ;)
  12. • CONTINUED… I had a big surprise as I arrived at the marsh: I was, of course, looking for my baby and, as she has a quite discrete plumage that doesn't make it easy to spot her quickly, my eye was caught by this flamboyant individual. I knew right then that my goose was cooked. He was something to see and, as usual, she just ignored me! This being the first time I had a chance to see in person and to photograph a Mandarin drake in all it glory… as he put a definite end to my platonic illusions. 1 2 …a great couple that is! 3 No, oh no… she's doing it in front of my eyes… and lens! She is seducing him… 4 Lucky guys! 5 Doesn't she look happy? 6 I hate him already… sniff! As always: Have a look, have a good time C&C welcomed! Shot with a 600mm ƒ4 @ ƒ8 lens on a D810 AP was used to clean up debris and other stuff that was not contributing positively to the visual quality of the takes.
  13. • Introduction. Since some 10 days, I'm going around (not fast nor far!) with a set of crutches after a severe fall in an icy outdoor stairway that twisted my left ankle. —"That 's a good one"… said the surgeon, "No need to operate though that will nail or slow you down for some time, I'm afraid!" Yesterday, I couldn't stand it anymore. I asked a friend to help me put the wildlife gear in the car and drive me to the marsh for a couple of hours. Do you remember this girl (young female Mandarin duck) who grabbed my heart in the middle of December? Though I was hooked in a rather platonic affair, she broke my heart… but I'm happy for her… I had the feeling that this romance had no future. Followed in the next post…
  14. +1 This is a very dramatic image Mike… and a most stupendous work!
  15. • Saubere Arbeit durch und durch! Simple, very clean and clear… weiter machen! ;)
  16. To my greatest pleasure! Very convincing. both the composition and the rendition! Keep rocking!
  17. Well Richard. you got that darn right! ;)
  18. Very cool… colours, tonalities… brilliant! If I may, I see two light sources in this scene… really? The projection of the reflection of NATURE in the water is not justified by the perspective nor the water. …but these are the view of a photographer and may be totally irrelevant!
  19. +1 Pas du tout Français mais farouchement francophone… une langue ne meure pas si on la laisse pas. Les Québécois le savent!
  20. • Sorry Rossrob14, this is not an edit in my book but a full blown composition… and a tasteful one at that! Very, very cooooool! ;)
  21. That's quite normal but you should not worry about that; as WB is the lesser evil in the recorded data. Maybe you could set the WB on AUTO in the camera. Like many other parameters, WB is subject to your artistic intent. So the rule in such cases is: if you made an educated decision and it pleases you, then it goes!
  22. Now that you ring the bell, maybe I should ask myself the question. I understood that all tweaks were recorded in the Afphoto files that ends up being ginormous BTW. I just watch this video but it doesn't clearly answer the point… https://vimeo.com/130963606 So I have to admit that my "presumption" was wrong. Personally, when I learned that it could develop only one file at the time, I knew that I would not use the persona. My actual workflow is RAW conversion and publish- ing in Capture One Pro, and pixel edition only in AP when needed. Sorry I created false hopes! :)
  23. • If one has a single RAW file/ project, Affinity Photo already has the Develop Persona to handle RAW files. It features not destructive record of all tweaks done on the RAW and, upon saving, may be worked in the Photo Persona.
  24. That's all I was aiming for… happy it helped!
