    AP Inside border problem after creating HDR

    @Chris_K You're welcome
  4. This problem did occurs after creating a HDR merge / tonemapping (3 old NEF files out of my 2014 archieve) When adding an inside border effect "stranger things" :-) happens. See attached video. The problem also occurs with the Beta V If I export the document as a JPG file and reopen it everything works as usual. Inside BorderProblem.mp4

    Burn and Dodge to another layer?

    Thank you
  6. Here's an interesting article concerning RAW, JPEG and TIFF - What they are and when to use them http://www.bobatkins.com/photography/digital/raw.html
  7. @leoskats I always end up with a RGB 16 bit colour space. Even if you switched to LAB (16 bit) colours space and export the image as a TIFF file, then the original colour space (in my case Adobe RGB (1998)) will be used. You can't use LAB 16 bit for web publishing, if you export to JPEG-format Affinity Photo automatically converts it to colour format (s)RGB 8 bit . That's because JPEG file format is only 8 bits per colour.

    You're welcome
  9. But, correct me if I'm wrong, what if you have also made LENS, DETAIL, TONAL adjustments! Then a separate preset must be defined for each panel! For JPEG shots ,in Photo Persona, once all adjustments are made you could group them en copy/paste that group onto an other image !!!
  10. Most cameras offer a choice between sRGB or Adobe RGB color space I have absolutely no idea if there are cameras that offer LAB color space as a choice !! I mostly shoot in RAW format in the Adobe RGB color space. Adobe RGB offers a wider color range than sRGB, the most saturated green, red and blue colors are beyond the reach of sRGB. In Affinity Photo you can always change color format via Document > Color format . Did you already watch this video, about LAB color mode?

    Add a new pixel layer fill it with 50% gray (you can use a shortcut i.e. Miscelaneous > Set fill to 50% gray) set the blend mode to overlay In the context toolbar, choose a tonal range .. and start doging or burning .. or create that layer on the fly using my attached macro Dodge & Burn.afmacros

    Is there a "jump to zero" for sliders?

    And ... CTRL + mouse wheel allows you to increase/decrease the value by 0.1

    White balance doesn't work correctly

    Just drag the picker around and search for a point where colors might appear to be more "on target and corrected" .
  14. Here's an other interesting link: https://rawpedia.rawtherapee.com/RGB_and_Lab and a video about 8 bit vs 16 bit

    Did you try FIlters > Colours > Auto Colours or Auto White Balance ?
