  1. @thepiranha Why export to a PNG file? Instead choose JPEG or TIFF
  2. @Torstein There's a way to use Affinity Photo more efficiently. My .afphoto file (see attachment) is half the size of yours ! That's because I'm only using one layer to apply all the adjustments. First I made a selection (selection brush) of the parts that needed to be blurred. Then I did save that selection as a spare channel and renamed it "blur" (see the channels panel). If you right click on the spare channel and choose "Load to pixel selection" you can reuse it at any time. I also saved that selection in a file (see attachment). Via menu: "Select > Invert Pixel Selection" you can switch back an forward to manipulate the opposite part of the image. Now with the selection active add an adjustment layer and make changes. These changes will only be applied to that selection. Hope this was helpful. Vintermåker_adjusted.afphoto Vintermåker_adjusted.afselection
  3. Builded up on what @v_kyr provided A few common manipulations I often apply: - 50 % multiply blendmode overlay - clarity adjustment - dodge & burn
  4. @albas Unlike the OP's JPEG image format, DNG (digital negative) is a type of raw file (I suppose you already know) that will open in "Develop Persona" (AF 16-bit RAW editor), making it a bit more complicated to determine. It would be useful to provide some file(s) so we can look at.
  5. In the toolbar you can choose Output : RAW Layer (Embedded) and save your changes as an .afphoto
  6. Well, I think that's trial and error to reproduce the exact color, as retained in the swatch panel, which then can be add as a preset.
  7. In the color palette, the way value definitions are displayed differs from those displayed in the Recolor Adjustment panel. An easy way to retain that specific color is to add the colour to the swatch panel.
  8. As already mentioned, the TEXT pixel layer must be selected (= thumbnail click => blue background). Otherwise, the Filters\Blur options are not clickable (grayed out). Another possible cause is that if a pixel selection is active (e.g. on the other layer) and "menu: View\Show Pixel Selection" was not checked, you will not see any change because the text is not within that hidden selection.
  9. Make the 'pardon our dust' layer active Go to menu: Window > Channels The problem becomes clearly visible when you successively click on the red, green and blue composite channels
  10. The color cast in your shot is caused by the color temperature of the light source that illuminates your scene at the time you take the photo, whether or not in conjunction with an incorrect color balance setting in the camera!! So, whether you import the photo into Exposure X7 or Affinity Photo or into any other photo editing program, the color cast will inevitably be visible. Calibration should be repeated at regular intervals (preferably monthly) and under the same conditions. I use "Datacolor Spyder Pro" for this, but there are other brands that confirm the same result.
  11. Edit > Settings > General Did you enable "Import PSD smart objects" ?
