  1. @MBd after all alecspra asked for an other method for doing the work an he was satisfied as far as I can see he suggests to use the frequency separation to preserve the details and the traits of the face
  2. well I found it interesting because it is an alternative to a layered work. He works on a low frequency layer and it seems to be more realistic compared to a traditional method, fairly time saving. Picking up the colors from a color photo is a good suggestion, I tried myself with a picture of Theodore Roosevelt, picking up colors from Robin Williams in "Night at the museum". The result satisfied me and did it in a short time.
  3. Hi @alecspra I've just found out this tutorial with the frequency separation and the paint mixer brush tool
  4. It's not the firs time. Thar occured also in previus Betas. I was just tracing a picture with the pen tool and after 4th curve the program crashed. Exactly in the moment I was trying to adjust a curve by the handle. Attached the screenshot of the work in progress
  5. Same issue. But only when I open files from recents. If I open a new file it does not happen.
  6. Remarkable number of users! Thanks for your reply @MBd
  7. Hello Sirs, I was wondering how many affinity users there are worldwide.
  8. Hello there, I'm working on a picture (1200X1200px) with wich I'm creating a logo, so there are both raster elements and vector elements. On the raster I've applied several live filters and adjustments and on the vectors I've applied live effects. The program lags , stops for a while, slows down, when I transform sizes it struggles and strives. The task manager shows that processors and memory are not overwhelmed. My machine is a Lenovo with core i7 6700hq and Nvidia gtx 950m. The program is set up to use the graphic card Nvidia. The Nvidia monitor icon shows that AP is working with the graphic card properly. It is nothing new to me, since it occurs always, but just now I made up my mind to write in the forum. Is there a setting to make AP more fluent with heavy works?
  9. No I do not have any. Deleted already. When I shall have one, I'll upload
  10. Hi Brethren, I was outlining a subject in a photo with the pen tool and was not able to end the job due to a crash notice of AP. So I hit the OK and restarted with the safe copy, but every time I could not proceed as the crash notice still appeared. That does not occur in the stable version.
  11. smart solution. It does the job as well. thanks
  12. Hi brethren, I would like to gradient mask to achieve the attached image result. In the sample I have created 4 masks to do that, but I would like to know whether it is possible with 1 mask or not.
  13. Selection brush tool: when I zoom the picture to refine my selection, the dashed area disappears
  14. I've tested as well. I think it could be a nice feature to be kept :)
