    Helped my neighbor pick out color for his house using AP. Did some testing on interior color as well and works great!

    Hi adrianbblk,
    Welcome to Affinity Forums
    The light effect can easily be achieved with an elliptical gradient as a fill (from light yellow to a darkest yellow tone) and with an Outer Glow Layer Effect. Check the circle in the attached file. Let me know if you still have trouble.

    Rick G reacted to Stephen_H in My Adobe resignation. Anyone else packed it in with them?   
    Well people, I have done it. I've cancelled my Adobe CC subscription. Here's the proof. Anyone else packed it in with them?

    (It's a bit off topic, but I can't find a general/misc category for posting my own news.)

    Rick G reacted to MEB in need blend shape tools and any vertex point conver in curve   
    Hi Dhaval Panchal,
    Welcome to Affinity Forums
    Check the Corner Tool to round corners. You can select more than one node and apply the rounding to all at once.
    There's no blend shape tool in Designer at this point. It's already on Affinity Designer roadmap as Replicate/Blend but i don't know the scope of it's functionality yet.
    You may want to take a look at the Power Duplicate functionality for a few things. I know it's far from being the same.

    How long does it take? What is your operating system? What is your CPU? Where are you loading the image from (SSD, HDD, network)? 
    I'm not sure why you are threatening us with informing your Facebook group of 25,000 people, if you aren't happy with your purchase, you can always request a refund. But let's try to work out what the problem is first of all.

    Nice to see some Photo work with information about the process. Were there actually "thousands of bits of floating rubbish on the surface of the water"? Did you have to inpaint them individually?

    Cygnets shot on my trusty old a6000.
    Basic adjustments with Capture One. Affinity Photo inpainting brush used to get rid of the thousands of bits of floating rubbish on the surface of the water. HSL adjustment tool used to selectively change the colours in the water to make it look nicer.

    Also 1920 x 1080 and on first use I see the same problem.
     
    But, if I "correct" the error, close the program and re-open, the adjustments window now appears correct, everything visible.

    There's so much secrecy and uncertainty around Publisher, that perhaps Affinity needs a forum just for rumors?

    Depending on the photo motive that's not very difficult, here is a night shot of a well know place in town ...

    ... and then some applied adjustments ...

    ... and then tweak it further ...

    The way to get such an effect is overall to lower contrast (say -100%), enhance shadows (say +100%), reduce some color hues (cyan/blue/magenta about -35%) and add some slightly vibrance. - You can also apply selective color adjustments for certain colors of the respective image.
