  1. 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.
  2. Due to a mistake, I have deleted the uplift skies macro from my library.Is there a way I can reinstall this?
  3. 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?
  4. Have tried this,but there is no reference to the macro i.e. no AF logo
  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. 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.
  8. 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?
  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. 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.
  12. 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?
  13. I am by no means a computer geek,however I am having a big problem since the latest update in Photo 1,6,5,123.My cpu usage is up to 98% when loading a raw file of 12Mps,when developed all editing is very slow and delayed in it's action.I opened up task manager to see there is a duplicate of Affinity Photo is this correct?

    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?

    Windows 10

    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.

    Yes Gabriel I only use live filters,I have just been trying again and brushes and clone for example are very jittery.There is a delay before the edit takes effect,this is in RAW and JPEG.

    Hi John,I have been into all of the background apps and disabled them.I am using Bitdefender and that is not giving me a problem.I have just tried resetting Affinity to factory setting.Have not had a chance to test all the various editing processes, will however keep you informed as to whether this has solved the problem.Would be great if affinity could run on Linux.

    Hi Gabriel,it looks like I have a 2nd generation 2130 3,4 Ghz P1060559.RW2

    Sorry I forgot to say that when editing a RAW file I constantly get Affinity is not responding,this is due to the CPU maxing out.

    Windows 10

    500gb HDD, 8gb RAM,Intel i3.I had no problems before the latest update,now for example if I change the blend mode there is a delay of 1 to 2 seconds before this is applied.This is the same with other editing methods,I have done all the scanning for malware/virus.All my software is up to date.

    Thanks,just thought I would ask not that I am going to use PS Affinity Photo is the best !!!!!
  22. Has anybody tried to install Raya PRO into Affinity Photo?
  23. Thank you I now understand the difference between filters and LIVE filters,I feel bit stupid now.
  24. Am I right when you dock tools to the left access strip in Affinity Photo these are a destructive action,as they do not nest under the current photo selected.They seem to react different from those you select from the layer panel.If so what is the point of this option,is to speed up the editing process.
  25. Can any body tell me if exiftool.exe is part of Affinity Photo or is it a virus program that has entered my computer.I have searched online and they give me conflicting reports.
