  1. Hello, If I have a black and white pixel layer (or a grayscale pixel layer), is there a way for me to select the white area of it? I'm essentially creating a mask on a pixel layer, but now what to select it so I can actually apply it as a mask on a mask layer. It's a luminosity representation, so I ideally want to transfer it as is to a mask layer. Cheers!
  2. Also, what is the best workflow for working with multiple RAW files that need to be stacked? I'd like to Develop the original RAW for each image before stacking. So far, the only option I've found is open each RAW one at a time as a new document, export as a TIFF into Files app, and then open all of the saved TIFFs in a new document as a Live Stack.
  3. Hi MEB - I've done this and I don't notice any difference to the masked area. Attaching screenshot. It does seem to work with a Curves adjustment as expected though, so thank you for the tip!
  4. Hello, A few feature requests from me, especially related for landscape workflow: - "Smart objects" or more specifically, non-destructive RAW editing that I can go back and tweak. Must work for multiple RAWs stacked as layers. - Mask preview overlay - both ruby overlay and seeing the black and white rendition of the mask (and being able to brush on it) - Ability to apply levels adjustment to a mask itself (which seeing the black and white mask preview) Thanks!
  5. +1 to this please - I'm currently saving AP files to a folder in Keynotes because that has a local storage option.
  6. Thank you James! Immensely helpful! How do you find AP's RAW processor compared to Lightroom mobile or Snapseed? Also, is there a way to apply a levels adjustment to a mask? Especially useful for adjusting luminosity masks. I guess my biggest feature request then would be mask preview support.
  7. Anybody? I really like AP and the iPad, but without some of these workflow things, it's very hard for me to post-process. Contemplating returning the iPad in that case.
  8. Hi all, Running AP on an iPad Pro 10.5. Coming over from working with Lightroom and Photoshop with my Surface Pro. Mainly do landscape work and had some questions: - I noticed that I get way more out of the RAW files (Sony) from Lightroom than AP's Develop module, especially for shadows and highlights recovery. Is that expected? - Does AP's Develop auto-correct lens distortion based on lens profile? - If I have a mask on a layer, is there a way for me to see the mask overlay (ruby overlay in Photoshop) so I can see if I missed any spots? I saw a tutorial using the Selection persona, but that doesn't seem to work if I have a mask layer selected. - If I have a mask on a layer, is there a way for me to see the actual mask (black and white)? - I have loaded some macros for luminosity masks - once I create a mask, is it possible for me to edit the mask using a levels adjustment while actually seeing the mask (black and white version)? - Is there a way to easily copy a mask to another layer? - Can I create a mask via a color range? Cheers!
  9. I've been processing a few of my recent Leica Q photos via AP on my 1st gen iPad Pro 12.9. For the most part, been a very nice experience. Few thoughts / suggestions: - Compared to Lightroom, the RAW processing seems "constrained" for the lack of a better word. I feel I can't squeeze as much out of the image as I can in Lightroom. - For portraits, I really like things like the easy Frequency Separation filter. Would love some more landscape-focused features: --- Really luminosity masks (not just the blend mode workaround) --- Ability to view the mask for easier refinement --- Ability to process multiple RAW exposures and then bring them in via Place Image (from the Affinity documents instead of only being able to place from camera roll / iCloud) --- Support for more filters like polarizer, color contrast, micro / dynamic contrast (similar to NIK, Luminar) - Performance optimization (maybe it is just my 1st gen iPad Pro, but I have noticed various slowdowns in the app where stuff just freezes - especially happens with selections / refining selections) I think I may get a new iPad Pro (for the better screen color accuracy if nothing else) if AP continues to evolve at the pace it is. Great work!
  10. Hi all, I'm seeing some sluggishness with my iPad Pro 12.9 (first gen) when it comes to processing images. Everything gets affected - toggling layer visibility, selecting tools, making selections, etc. I have 5 pixel layers, 3 masks, and 6 adjustment layers on the image - pretty standard I think. Is it just inherent to the iPad Pro first gen power? Would the second gen improve this greatly? Or are there some performance optimizations still needed for AP on iPad? Restarting the app seemed to help, but I worry I'll run into it again the deeper I get into editing. Could it be due to auto-saving? Cheers!
  11. Will you support AirDrop for easier transfer to Macs? Or will iOS11 make this an easier transfer process instead of routing via the cloud?
  12. For anybody that had the old iPad Pro and now has the new one, how's the performance difference (especially for AP)? I have the old 12.9.
  13. I imagine something like the Tone Mapping Persona would be used for this?
