  1. I am unable to set my histogram to the fine setting,it will only show the coarse.When I click on the warning triangle it is removed,however as soon as I apply an adjustment it re- appears.
  2. OK thanks I have it back now,however the order of the macro is different from the original.By that I mean the mask layer is now at the bottom of the stack when before it was at the top.Also the Hazy Sky is offset and I cannot adjust by double clicking on the icon,it is in a fixed mode when I apply the macro?
  3. Have tried this,but there is no reference to the macro i.e. no AF logo
  4. Due to a mistake, I have deleted the uplift skies macro from my library.Is there a way I can reinstall this?
  5. When try to apply adjustments to a photo,i.e. brightness or contast my mouse pointer will not react in a smooth way.It moves in an erratic way and the adjustment jumps left or right,I have made various adjustments within Win 10 control panel but this has not helped.This was not a problem before the last Affinity update,or maybe it was a Windows update problem?
  6. Why have the previous You Tube videos been deleted?,some of them had far better tips,i.e. global cloning etc: These could have still been retained as well as adding the new content.
  7. Could anyone explain the use of the custom blur tool,and how to use this in a workflow.I have played around with it for a little while and can see that it does create a blur effect,however what effect do the input numbers effect the image in a specific way.Also can these inputs be saved and used in other editing another image.
  8. Would love that I could change the default colors in the image layer in Windows,as it can be done in the Mac version.If I could change the colors as I make adjustments it would easier to identify them. I would also like to congratulate the team for the new 1.7 version as this loads twice as fast as the previous.Keep up the great work you are doing.
  9. Thank you all for your replies,the problem does not now appear after calibrating my monitors.It was at the closing of James Ritson's video that inspired me to investigate the possibility of some creative applications for this method. I do have one further question,when deciding to have some photos printed by a professional studio should I ask them for their printer profile/paper profile so I am able to soft proof them in Affinity before I send the for printing?
  10. I do realise this,my question why is this happening?
  11. I am sure there are many people out there more technical minded to answer my question.I have not calibrated my monitor (I know I should) however I am thinking of purchasing a A3 color printer.After I watched one of James Ritson videos I decided to try the soft proofing method.Under the list of proofing methods I found my monitor listed in 2 different positions (see snip) and as you can see from the photo snip the sun is out of Gamut.My question being is the fact the sun is out of Gamut due to the fact my monitor is not calibrated as this does not occur with the sRGB only in the linear config.Or am I totally misunderstanding the various soft proofing profiles?
  12. Thank you R-CR/ FD for your replies,that has cleared up the mystery.I will however now look into whether this can be applied in Windows 10.
  13. Is there a way to change the default color of blue in the layer/image/pixel adjustment on the right.I have seen this displayed as a brown color in some Affinity videos,or is this only applicable to OS computers and not on Windows?
  14. Sorry I forgot to ask does the size of the raw file have any effect as I have tried with 12mp and 24 mp files or is it better to develop them and the downsize the image file?
  15. Yes it maybe time to update,my thought is that I had no problems before the latest update from Affinity.I will try using destructive filters instead to see if that works better.Thanks for your input.
