  1. You can. If you edit a jpeg or tiff and do not add layers or effects then Save will save in the same place and as the same filetype. With more complex editing, you need to export. Where you draw the line is unclear however. I only discovered this by accident. It does not seem to be well-documented. John
  2. I scan a black-and-white image using VueScan using the B/W Text mode and save as a Tiff. If I open this in Corel Paint X7, it identifies the image as being 1-bit. If I open the same image in AP 1.6, it automatically converts it to 8-bit sRGB. I have to convert it to an 8-bit greyscale to do anything useful before export. Even if AP will not deal with 1-bit images, I think the least it could do is to treat it as an 8-bit greyscale rather than RGB! It does the same in 1.7 beta. John

    page plus x9

    Sorry about that. The 'this' should have had a link attached. I was just trying to encourage @Bruce E. Gallie to follow the link to the PagePlus site. John

    Have you tried this? John

    New photography edited with Affinity Photo

    Nice to see some photographic images in the Share your work forum. It would be nice to see some information as to what (if anything) you did to the images. John
  6. It would have helped if you had uploaded the actual exported images rather than screenshots and you had labelled each image. As it is, the order seems to be notonemap, tonemapnatural and Photomatix. is that right? You have made it hard on yourself by photographing directly into a setting sun. I would have probably taken more images,say one stop apart. Did you look at your images once you had taken them? Did they encompass all the tones that you wanted to preserve? You have tried two tone mapping variants. Have you tried to vary the sliders independently of the tone-mapping presets? It might be worth a try. I would suggest that you upload the three files. You can upload jpegs, and they need not be too large for us to try. If you develop the raw files, use the same parameters when you develop, preferably the default. John
  7. I use the windows Snipping tool. Very easy to use. John
  8. As far as windows goes, the answer is no. There have been requests in the Feature Requests for Photo forum. You might like to add your voice to one of those threads. John
  9. You would probably have got a much faster response if you had posted your Question in the Questions forum. This Tutorials forum is really for Tutorials that members can consult. Often a member will post a Tutorial in the Tutorials forum following a Question in the Questions forum. Anyway, thanks to @Pedro Soares for an explanation. Slices is something that I have often wondered about but have never got round to using. John
  10. A recent post in the Questions forum bemoaned the lack of positioning in the Print dialogue. If I want to position an image at the top of a page, I have to resize the canvas to add blank space. This includes a positioning grid as well as sizes. It would be much better if the Print dialogue included this grid. Please add a positioning grid to the Print dialogue. John

    Pixelated Layer on Export

    Possibly,, if you convert your vector logo to a larger-resolution bitmap (1200 x 400), then Resize down to 600 x 200 it may apply some anti-aliasing (depending on the re-sizing algorithm) which would reduce the apparent pixilation. John

    Planetary Photography

    Surely, if you start with an RGB image, then separate it into three single-colour images/channels, then these will already be properly aligned (since they all came from the same original photo). Isn't this what you get when you stack the images using Align? If you use the median option, then it will ignore outliers. As far as I can see, you have just a single step which, as you say, Affinity Photo can do. John
  13. If you use a batch job, you can use it to: Open a file to edit; Apply one or more macros; Export to a named location and selected export parameters. Would this do what you want? John

    Wrong colors

    You do not actually say, but I would guess that you have the same image that appears differently in Photo 1.6 and 1.7. Have you set the same colour profile in each? Which would you say is the 'correct' colour? It looks like a Meerkat to me, in which case I would say the 1.7 pic looks more accurate. John
