  1. I'm using a Canon 6D with a Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC lens. I have tried the Apple RAW engine and it produces much better results, very close to the Canon DPP software. But for some reason it won't do any lens correction where the Serif RAW engine does. Not sure why. So I have to guess how much to move the distortion slider in the Develop persona. It would be nice of there were a drop down list there where you could select the lens and have it applied accurately. So I guess I'm better off using the Apple RAW engine and guessing at when the distortion is removed rather than have awful colors. Most of the time the distortion isn't extreme, some barrel at the wider ranges. I'm more worried about how the distortion will effect multi shot panorama stitching. Thanks for the response.
  2. I’ve been having an issue with the way AF renders the colors in Canon CR2 files compared to Canon’s Digital Photo Professional. I have the tone curve turned off in the Develop Assistant and am using the Serif Labs RAW Engine. I’m using these settings to enable me to have lens correction since I’m using a Tamron lens which Canon’s DPP doesn’t support any corrections. And I can’t disable the initial tone curve in DPP which limits my dynamic range. I’ll attach screenshots of 2 images, one converted by Canon’s DPP, the other by Affinity Photo. You can see the obvious color shift, especially in the reds. When I put the eyedropper inside the zero of 750s on the side cover I get these values. DPP R=222, G=4, B=3. With AF I get R=188, G=0, B=24. I’ve tried using the Selective Color adjustment and can get the red close by setting the Red channel to Cyan=-100%, Yellow=+35% but the other colors are still off and difficult. Is there any way I can color match to the Canon DPP colors? They are accurate to real life.
  3. I watched a 3rd party video of a guy using Affinity Photo and I noticed he had the foreground/background circular colors on the left toolbar under the Zoom tool, just like in PS. I've tried to figure out how to get it there but can't find anything in the preferences. Dragging it there doesn't work either. I use the histogram a lot to I'm constantly having to click on the tabs to check my colors since I don't want another floating window. This move would be very convenient. Any ideas on how to get it there? Thanks. I just found the video I was watching, I'll post a link and a screen shot.
  4. I would like to see this feature too, I used it a lot in Photoshop. It makes refining a mask much easier.
  5. I just combined a panorama using multiple CR2 files shot in Portrait mode using AF 1.6.6. When done I get a panorama displayed verticle so I go to View>Rotate> either left or right depending on the images. But I have to do this 6 times to make it rotate 90 degrees. I’ve tried 3 different panoramas shot in portrait mode and they all do this. Is this normal? I don’t think I tried this with the previous version so I don’t know if it’s different. I’m using OS X 10.12.6 I’ll attach a screen shot of two rotates going on a third.
  6. I would like the ability to put a selection from a pixel layer directly to a black mask, that is holding Option key while clicking on the mask icon. As it exists, it ignores the selection and puts a completely black mask up. My only way around it is to put the selection on a white mask, then invert the mask. Thank you.
  7. Thanks for the replies, I'll go ahead and submit this as a future request.
  8. When I make a selection on a pixel layer then hold the option key, click on mask to create a black mask the selection is ignored and I get a totally black mask. The only way I can get around this is to make a regular mask from the selection, then invert it. I'm using versions 1.5.2 and the 1.6 beta. Both versions ignore selections when I want to directly apply a black mask. Is this normal? I couldn't find any info on this exact issue in the forums.
  9. Thanks for the help, I hope a future version has the Dodge/Burn and transparency options for the layer masks. It helps refining certain selections a lot. I'm still liking the program and haven't used PS since.
  10. Hello, With Affinity Photo is there anyway to Dodge and Burn on a layer mask? I've tried the dodging and burning tool but it has no effect. Also, can the density of a layer mask be adjusted? With a layer mask selected the opacity slider adjusts the opacity of the whole image, not the selection on the mask. Thanks
