  1. You could have a look at the HaldCLUT colour tables (film emulations - B&W included) for Affinity Photo: it was brought up a few years ago: Cheers, Biff
  2. What would be useful is a Zone Scale, perhaps incorporated into the Navigator Panel, that could be used to highlight a selected Zone in the image. Pretty much like the one found in Silver Efex, from Nik. Biff
  3. Will do - when time allows. Strangely enough, the problem doesn't occur with the Inner Glow effect. Regards, Biff
  4. The Layers Panel was not shown as it only had the one layer - the Background pixel layer. Filling the Alpha Channel of that Pixel Layer did work - Thank You. I suspect that Tone Mapping is clearing the Alpha Channel. Perhaps this needs flagging as a "bug" Cheers. And Happy New Year. Biff
  5. Adding an outline to an image is relatively straightforward: using the Effects Panel. However, some Strange Behaviour has been noticed: I opened a 16-bit Tif file (from a Scanner), which opens into the Photo Persona. An outline (inner) can be applied: I initially opened a TIF file (from a scanner), and applied an Inner Outline: Using same file, after being sent to the Develop Persona for some adjustments: still behaving itself: The same file, sent to the Develop Persona, then to the Tone Mapping Persona. This is where the problem lies: Opps!! Now, why?? In Frustrati
  6. As far as I know, my iMac (late 2015) doesn't have "Apple Silicon". I upgraded to Big Sur about a month ago (now running OS 11.1) and I'm having no problems with Affinity Photo. The problem with the ICC Profiles is, as I've pointed out previously on this thread, a matter of filepath: on older versions they were stored in /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/. However, by accident or design, they are now found in /Users/Me/Library/Containers/Affinity Photo/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles. That, at least, works for me. Regards, and a Happy New Year, Biff
  7. That's what I did at first. I then did a Spotlight search which turned the directory path I gave in a post above (/Users/Me/Library/Containers/Affinity Photo/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles), so I just loaded the rest of them manually. Biff
  8. There is, under the File menu, an "Import ICC Profile..." option, which should put your profiles in the "correct" location. At least, there is on the Mac version. I can't speak for the Windows version. It would, of course, be nice and logical if Colour Profiles were stored in the same place as Printer Profiles. Live long and Prosper 🖖🏼 Biff
  9. Hi. It looks like the problems lies in the file path to the Profiles folder. In the updated version it is now /Users/Me/Library/Containers/Affinity Photo/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles and not /Library/ColorSync/Profiles/ as in the older versions. You can use File -> Import ICC Profile in the Photo Persona to import your profiles: this will put them in the correct folder. Biff
  10. Aye - been there, done that. I'll probably get a T-shirt next time. 😁 All the best, Biff
  11. A printed image will never look like the screen image - you see them differently (reflected light of a print versus transmitted light of the screen). The Soft Proof layer will show how the image it look like when printed. To print, you need to turn off the Soft Proof layer. You use the Soft Proof to make correction so the image gamut matches (as best as possible) the paper gamut. Check out the video https://player.vimeo.com/video/152413642/ Regards, Biff
  12. Hi. It looks like the problems lies in the file path to the Profiles folder. In the updated version it is now /Users/Me/Library/Containers/Affinity Photo/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles. You can use File -> Import ICC Profile in the Photo Persona to import your profiles: this will put them in the above folder. Biff
  13. I've printed a couple of images out, using Soft Proofing, with no problems. I think the pathname in version 1.8.6 has been changed. I'm not sure why you're have problems, Christhephoto. I'm wondering: have you got "Gamut Check" selected? The greyed out areas (that are out of gamut) may print grey unless corrected. Have a look at this legacy video from Affinity: https://player.vimeo.com/video/152413642/ It may be for an older version Affinity Photo, but it's still relevant (i.e. it still works). I wish they'd hurry up and update all the tutorial videos. Hope it all works out. Bif
  14. And another thing (sorry, but I keep looking) The Colour Profiles seem to be stored in /Users/Me/Library/Containers/Affinity Photo/Data/Library/Application Support/profiles (at least that is where my previous post put the ones I imported). Biff
