  1. Mods. Please move this thread to Questions, where it belongs! John
  2. Why would you want such a facility? I'm sure that it would be useful in some very special circumstances, but woud it be useful to the majority of Affinity users? I ask this because the developers would need to prioritize their efforts. John
  3. You could do this in Photo using the Filter > Distort > Equations. However, you would then have rasterized text. I could expand further if you wished to pursue this route. John
  4. An intreaguing image. I had a close look at it before I saw the answer and thought I was clever in identifying it. But then you said 'of course' it was tree bark which deflated me somewhat! John
  5. What I see is a star field. I am not sufficiently familiar with astrophotography to be able to recognize noise in such an image. Have you tried searching in the Questions forum for astrophotography noise? John
  6. This would suggest that the best way to re-crop is to: Select crop Expand the crop area beyond what you would guess you need (since it is invisible) Press Apply Select crop again and select your final crop. As @MEB says, it is not very intuitive. John
  7. I think that the OP, @Charles p would find this thread more interesting if the replies focus on the original question. As @firstdefence said, it would help if you could post an image. John
  8. Do not confuse the export with the saving. When you exported your file it would have given you the window for you to select the name and location for the exported file. Have you looked there? After the export, your file is still an Affinity file, and if you save it it will save as an .afphoto file. You can ignore this step and just close the file, clicking on No when asked if you want to save. John
  9. What is the feature you are requesting in this post? Perhaps it should be moved to Questions.
  10. It makes sense to me that if you paste layers on top of each other, the topmost one is the last added and the original is at the bottom. John
  11. Do you mean that you can't see a way to do this? John
  12. Yes, it should be at the top of the screen, but the starting screenshot needs to be at the bottom of the layers stack, which it will be if you started off with this and pasted the others on top of it. John
  13. If it works for you then go for it! I don't think that there is a right or wrong way. John
  14. Strictly, frequency refers to only a part of an image. If you look at the girl's hair above, this is a high-frequency part of the image. The pixel values change rapidly with position. If you look at her cheek, the pixel values do not change much with position. This is a low-frequency part of the image. People use 'a high-frequency image' to refer to an image in which high frequency areas dominate. In a low frequency image, the low frequency areas dominate. John
  15. Yes, I confused you (and myself) by confounding clipping and cropping! Apologies John
