    Out-of-Frame Images

    Just getting started with Affinity Photo after years of Photoshop. For starters, decided to try to replicate some of my favorite PS projects - starting with what I call Out-of-Frame. Here are examples from my past work - An Out-of-Frame Portfolio AND - here's my first attempt with AP. Not exactly what I want, but close.

    The eBook that I referenced will answer all of your questions - and more (and yes IR requires camera modifications and/or special lenses - and techniques). You can read the book in about 20 minutes and know all that you need to know.

    I should have mentioned that the eBook Library site also has a collection of IR portfolios that you may enjoy.

    Until now, I've used Nik software for my B&W (including IR) processing. This same software can be added to Affinity Photo as a free plugin. How-to instructions for adding the plugin are available in these Affinity forums. I have a free IR book in my on-line eBook Library (all made with Affinity Publisher, by the way). Also, there are numerous IR articles in my Photo Improvement blog (use the blog's search box). Finally, on this same blog, there's a 12-part Silver Efex Pro 2 tutorial which includes a Workflow section. Hope you find this useful.
  5. Why has no one mentioned the missing persona as a must prior to exiting beta?
  6. Still learning Affinity Publisher - great program for my needs and will be nearly perfect once the photo & design persona are added. This is my current (2nd?) edition of a photo-portfolio eBook. It's the result of my search for a better way to publish PDF eBooks.
  7. Thanks. My project for today. I'll let you know how it goes. Brilliant!! I've got to do some more experimentation, but it seems to be just what the doctor ordered. Thanks.
  8. Thanks. Although I didn't mention it, I did create a template containing my Master Pages together with one blank page for each master page (and a TOC page). Not perfect but a step in the right direction. Thanks. My project for today. I'll let you know how it goes.
  9. Thanks. This works for copying/pasting the contents of a text frame, but isn't what I'm looking for. I'm doing a multiple-volume book series. Nearly every page of each volume is unique, but there are spots where all (or most) of an existing page is needed. The needed page will usually contain more than just text in a single text frame. I'd like to import the entire existing page rather than copy/paste its separate components one at a time. Suggestions? Currently I'm using "Save as..." to create the new volumes and then removing unwanted pages (which means most of the book) and starting the new book from there. If there 100 pages and I only want to keep 2, it would be much easier to start with a blank slate & adding 2 pages.
  10. Is is possible to import a page from one APub doc to another Apub doc?
  11. Changes to the TOC via Paragraph Leading are undone by the "mandatory" TOC update. Win10 & APub 257

    A Photo-Portfolio eBook

    For the time being - Yes. A work in progress.

    A Photo-Portfolio eBook

    Not just you. That's part of the 25% that I'm not satisfied with (my error, not Apub's). Decided to go with the book as is and get some fresh eyes on it before yet another update. I want to change some of the photos, too. These are a draft selection out of 100K+ in my archives. For now, I'm taking a break. Thanks for your input.
  14. Here is a photo-portfolio eBook I’ve been struggling with since December. Finally got a version that I’m satisfied with (well, 75% – I’m picky). I tried seven different publishing options and learned a lot along the way. The winner, by a mile – Affinity Publisher (which is still in beta). I wanted the book to be interactive. The book uses nearly 200 hyperlinks to: move among ~150 photos and guide the reader to related material my Photography Improvement site as well as my new site, Thru Ed’s Eyes. Any comments and suggestions will be appreciated and may help raise my 75% satisfaction in future eBooks. Eds Eyes Affinity 12x12 v4.pdf
  15. When adding a URL hyperlink address, the usual method paste-ing via a right-mouse-click is blank. Control-V works, but the missing right-click option should be added.
