  1. Thank you for the answer. It has been difficult to work with Affinity because I have often to guess when the brush is exactly in the right place and I wind up having to undo and restart the process.
  2. When I choose to use a brush (i.e) the inpainting brush, or a masking brush, the border disappears when it passes over a bright part of the image forcing me to redo that portion of my edit. Is there a way to emphasize this border by changing its color or thickness or some other control?
  3. I am a proponent of being able to set an automatic save of my work to date on any image in process. Many people have complained about crashes and freezes during their image manipulations. This of course, can be very frustrating, in that it requires a restart all the time. I have looked for an option that would actually save all my work automatically every X minutes without success. I then have gotten into the habit of stopping work to save my work in process manually. I don't suffer problems very often, but when it happens, I am thankful, I have my backup. Would love to see this feature added.
  4. It seems to me that you folks are extending your services far beyond what could be expected. I hope that the staff will continue to have good health and return to normal quickly.
  5. I also fail to find the logic that keeps Serif from publishing the workbook in pdf format. They do so many excellent things and the software throughout their history has been top drawer, it is just strange that they haven't lent credence to the many calls and requests for a digital version.
  6. If you are still stuck trying to use 1.7.3, you might just try downloading and installing the next beta version. This would run side by side with a released version and doesn't share code.
  7. This topic may not be in the appropriate forum, but it is, I think germane to this app. Many competitors are beginning to introduce AI processing for various filters or plug ins that seem to work much better that the old ones that required oodles more time to achieve acceptable results. My question is simply if there is a future path on the horizon for Photo that has some AI features.
  8. There are lots of possible problems trying to create your own help files. Most of them will fall under the category of maintenance. Every update, and there has been a ton of those, needs to be reviewed to see if the existing help needs modification. I tried to do something similar, but finally decided that my life should be devoted to images, not help files. Affinity products are work in process, and they seem to do a modicum of attention to this subject. Perhaps when the products are more mature, we will see better written support. In the meantime, keep watching for new video tutorials on your particular interests. These are improved over the original efforts. (Thank you James Riston )
  9. I sometimes want to work in Photo when no internet is available, and I would like to reference the user manual (or help file). I have such a file, downloaded a year or two ago, but so much has happened to the software, I'd like to obtain a newer version. It seems the downloaded version is more detailed than the help file attached to the software, or maybe its just my imagination. Unfortunately, I can't locate the link to the windows version download. Can someone post the link if it exists? Thanks.
  10. I think that my camera is set up to record images in sRGB format and 14 or 16 bit depth. In the case above, I got a bit peeved after experiencing this problem continuously for a long time and finally decided someone would understand what was happening. The exercise today was the result of loading 3 images in HDR merge, and Photo apparently made the conversion to 32bit. However, I will have to look further into the PEF file format as this seems to happen with single images as well. Anyway, my gratitude is extended to you because you hit the nail on the head. - Thank you so much.
  11. When I start to process a raw file (PEF) and wish to use a filter plugin during the editing process, Photo greys out the plugins that are in the filter preferences list and are thus unavailable. If I happen to start post processing from a .jpg image, all the plugins work perfectly. What am I missing? This behavior has occurred in all previous versions, but I simply exported the raw image as a jpg and then reopened the file and was able to use the plugin and complete the post work. Any hints would be appreciated. Thanks
  12. I didn't have an issue with the adjustment bar. Moved it in both directions and it behaved itself.
  13. Walt - I checked my preferences and yes I see the 300 set for recovery. So I loaded an image and pulled the plug for the computer from the wall socket simulating an electrical outage. After restarting the computer and Photo, I was not offered the option of recovery. The Help file indicates that this should happen automatically, but didn't for me. I still believe that a true auto save feature is really a valuable thing to have.
  14. I have, unfortunately, lost several images mid production due to pressing a wrong key, computer freeze up, or a variety of other unintended operations. Would it be to much to be able to choose to activate an auto save feature (in Photo format), set in preferences, that could have a variable time. This may have been requested before, but I consider it to be an important feature. Thank you for your interest.
