  1. Wait a minute. I just tried this using the Filters>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask and it does not seem to be modal. I can still change to any pallet, I can click the +/- in the Navigator panel, I can [CTRL] [+/-], and I can [CTRL] [scroll wheel] to zoom in or out.
  2. Yeah. I think the hobbyist market probably took the bigger hit from Adobe's subscription move. So for me (as a hobbyist who occasionally did something for hire as a favor) two things happened. I stopped buying the CS Master Collection every other year and I stopped telling budding photographers to just save up and learn Photoshop since it's the best. Instead I usually recommend something else as a starting point (currently Affinity products). It would be interesting to know how many people are like me.
  3. In Windows there are some apps that will load on whichever monitor the mouse is sitting on. So you can click to launch an app and then quickly move the mouse to the monitor on which you want the app to appear. Handbrake and AviDemux are a couple of examples. Affinity Apps don't do this. They load on the last monitor they were used. Can we get a setting to load the app on the same monitor the mouse is on?
  4. Interesting. The menus seem to be a little disorienting with the main menu on the right, but the drop-menus popping up on the left instead of flying out from the point of clicking. But still it is nice to see more desktop apps show up for Chrome OS.
  5. Like Photoshop, Affinity Photo has a RAM usage setting. Have you checked that to see if it is set to high for your system? If it is set to 8 GB, maybe try reducing it to 6 GB or 5 GB of RAM usages and see what happens.
  6. Filter Perspective does't really work properly as a "Perspective Crop Tool" replacement because instead of cropping the document to something close it stretches and distorts the selection to fill the existing canvas dimensions. It can get you by, but feels significantly clunkier and more time consuming than how Photoshop does it.
  7. Are the brush packs owned by Serif or do they pay royalties to the designer? If Serif owns the complete rights to them, one thing they might could do is offer a free brush/font/template pack or something similar after every 5 or so referrals. It would feel like you are getting something, but also wouldn't cost Serif too much in the way of lost revenue.
  8. And I've met some pros that were stuck in their ways and didn't like better ways of doing things if it meant they had to learn something new. So it can go both ways.
  9. What the ... ? Yes that is where they are and I have no idea why I couldn't find them the other day. I would have sworn I looked through every single menu option.
  10. @Eyedear - Thanks. that does help. It would be nice if the feature was discoverable with the mouse though. I mean people might also want HSL, Brightness Contrast, Curves, Shadows/Highlights, etc. That's a lot of shortcuts to memorize, especially since the programs doesn't seem to have the shortcuts plastered around the interface (menus and dialog boxes) to help drive it into the subconscious.
  11. Is there a way to adjust levels from a full screen view, like we can in Photoshop from the browsing the Image > Adjustments menu? I swear I've been sitting here for 10 minutes trying to find a way to do it without having to exit full screen, because exiting seems like an absolutely stupid requirement for "full screen" actions like adjusting colors.
  12. It's not quite the same as the perspective crop tool, but it is another handy option.
  13. In line with what @ashf said, here is a good demonstration of how the Guided Upright feature works in Lightroom and Photoshop.
  14. Nice. I did not know they had hidden that there. Now if we could drop a guide from any tool as well. Or at least from the selection tools.
