  1. Adding my request for .dds file support. It's the only thing keeping me from using Affinity Photo 100% of the time. Thanks!
  2. On the top menu bar, select View -> Studio and then ensure the Adjustment line is checked. Good luck!
  3. I think that is a great idea! As an AP user who does not own AD and has little in interest in AD or vector graphic editing, a split would allow me to more easily find AP content that would interest me.
  4. My first attempt at using the HDR merge function in AP. I used three exposures: -1, 0 and +1 stop.
  5. Still experimenting with existing light composites. Enjoy!
  6. Thanks, Dutchie! I've got lots of raw material to start with, and I'm looking forward to the practice... E. W.
  7. Thanks for the reply, Aeros4! Not much to cover as far as post processing. The original image is an existing light night shot -- f/7.1 at 1/25 sec, ISO 800. I adjusted darks down a bit and increased neon lights up a bit as well. I also increased contrast slightly in the lights. The castle guard photo was a daytime shot. After selecting him using the lasso tool, I refined the selection to keep the detail in the border of the fur hat, then imported him into the New Orleans shot. Since it was a daytime shot, I decreased exposure to keep it from looking unnatural and overpowering the night shot on Bourbon Street. Other than that, I painted out one ugly electrical cord and decreased the exposure on the man's white t-shirt at the extreme left of the photo so it didn't detract from the main subject. I hope that helps -- I started in photography on a camera that you only see in museums now (over 50 years ago), but I'm pretty green as far as Affinity Photo goes! Thanks again!
  8. I just recently purchased Affinity Photo for Windows, and I'm loving it! I decided to try my hand at a composite photo, so here it is. I wanted to put my subject in the least likely geographic location I could imagine, and I thought an Edinburgh Castle guard on Bourbon Street would work. I call it, "Castle Guard on Leave." Your thoughts?
