  1. Ship should make it to Baltimore on time, but seas are going to be a little on the rough side. Good Luck on your cruise. Thanks for the videos. Bob
  2. FYI, I cannot view the tutorial video nor do they even show up using Windows 7/Internet Explorer 11.0.5 (from the Affinity Publisher page). They do show up however if I use Google Chrome. A minor inconvenience but I thought I would pass this on. Thanks. Bob
  3. Thanks for your input and links. I had watched those videos previously but just couldn't achieve the results I wanted. After trying again, I managed to get acceptable results. All of the pictures I received (to be cleaned up/fixed) were taken with various iPhone models. Seems like only the professionals carry 'real' cameras anymore . Bob
  4. Toltec, Thank you for the quick response. That was one of the things I tried but my results were not as good as yours. It gives me hope and I will try again, I must not have done something right. Bob Edit: I just tried again and got the results I was looking for. Thanks again.
  5. This picture, along with several others from a recent vacation has sun glare or it is over exposed on the left hand portion of the scene. As a novice with Affinity Photo, I know it can be fixed but no matter how many different attempts to fix it I have failed. I did not take the pictures but my daughter 'thinks' I can work miracles (ha, ha). Is there a tutorial that deals with this specific problem? Thank you. Bob
  6. Thank you both for your responses: Alfred - as a beginner/newbie/most senior citizen, sometimes I need a little hand-holding. I can read some things several times and not really grasp its meaning if it isn't worded just right for me. I will read again the suggested items. toltec - thank you for spelling it out...I think I understand what I need to do now. Bob
  7. Beginners questions: What are the differences between those three processes? But more importantly are there advantages/disadvantages of each on a multi-layered photo? Thanks, Bob

    Tools Stop Working

    @Rick G: I,too, have noticed this on a couple of photos (Affinity Photo 1.6.4.104/Windows7). I just closed the project and reopened it and got the functionality of the tools back. However, I lost any changes I had made prior to losing control of the sliders. I did not save the changes as I was not sure if the photo had gotten corrupt or not. Bob Edit: oops, this is not concering the Beta version--sorry.
  9. Toltec, thank you very much for the advice. After some trial and error on my part, your advice has given me the results I was hoping for. Thanks again, Bob
  10. I have a photo of my two grandsons standing in a green pasture with a bright cloudless sky as the background. I have made a selection using the selection brush and used the refine option to clean it up. I cut/pasted it into a new document with a 'mottled' type of background (the type a professional photographer might use). The new background is darker and I have a very faint light outline around my selection. Questions: How do I eliminate this outline (if possible)? Would the 'grow/shrink/feather' options work? Would I shrink and then feather or vice-versa? As far as making improvements to the photo (adjustment layers) should I do this before I make my selection-cut/paste, or after I pasted this selection into my 'portrait' background? I have viewed so MANY tutorials and even purchased several courses at Udemy but my old brain can only retain so much information. Thanks for any guidance. Bob
  11. I just tried the various suggestions and the one suggested by @toltecworked best for me. Thanks again everyone. Bob
  12. Thanks again. I just watched the tutorials that @toltec suggested. They seem to answer my questions. I will give them a try after work tonight. Bob Edit: that should be "that @artofmtl"
  13. Thank you all for your quick responses. I will try your suggestions (all of them). @Alfred: the crop tool completely confused me. I saw the presets and tried them but when I selected the whole photo, I expected the overall size to change to the preset 4x6 or 8x10. After selecting, nothing seemed to change in the photo. Sorry to be so 'dense' but this fantastic program is just so powerful that I get overwhelmed with all of the options. Thanks again every one. Bob
  14. I have just finished following some course tutorials on Udemy's site. I have successfully used layers and filters to enhance a picture of my wife. The question I have now is how (step by step) to correctly resize and print this to two different formats - 4x6" and 8x10". As finished, the photo is 6 layers which I assume I should 'flatten', correct? It is 6016x3384px or since I am used to inches it is 83.556x47". It's DPI is 72. I realize that to get my desired formats that I will have to crop the photo but this is where I am stuck. I plan on printing this myself on an HP photosmart printer. How do I proceed with this since I have corrected the photo? Thank you for any guidance you can give me. Bob
  15. Thank you for your presentations. It is very interesting to see how others accomplish various tasks. I learned several new tricks today.
