  1. Here I demonstrate 4 principle elements that make up a successful digital portrait. These include: How 3D form is structured, Facial landmarks, Colour Luminosity Comments welcomed . Instagram> @clarkejohnsen

    AP Digital Painting Set UP

    Yes, as Aammppaa pointed out rotation = View>left or right and I mapped these to the Expresskeys of my "old" wacom tablet. To get the floating tool bars go under the window menu > Separated Mode. You will have to scale the image to fit your monitor size. If you want to work with two of the same image then open up a new view under View> new view. Now both images can be scaled/positioned as you want. Works like a charm. Here is the final digital painting. I broke my procedure down into a few categories (3D form, Color, Facial landmarks,& luminosity) and will make a new post for that. I didn't keep record of the time it took to paint it which was too long in my opinion , but now that I got AP working for me.. blending /painting brushes etc... things shouldn't take so long.
  3. Thanks Serif for your brilliant AP software version 1.7. Would it be possible to offer an Extra Large Font UI size option for the many of us who don't have the best of eyesight. MY experience on my 5K iMAC monitor is that the UI fonts with the two options of default and large font are still too small to read comfortably and I need to get very close to the monitor to read the menu text. Extra large Font UI would help greatly. Thanks Greg

    AP Digital Painting Set UP

    Here’s a look at my Affinity Photo setup, using two views of the same painting that I am working on gives me the flexibility of zooming in on one image to work the details while being able to see the immediate impact on the whole image. This approach really works well given I am using a 5K iMac monitor. Comments welcomed. joined_video_d523871d91bc4ffea3bd7f8bf2663e61.MP4
  5. Oh....I think there is a value for a time lapse......at least I enjoy watching them.... and yes, it's time for coffee, What brand are you drinking?
  6. Got word back from iShowU tech support and I just needed to disable “ colour correction” in the preferences to eliminate the problem of over saturation. It worked! Th color on the video generated through iShowU is even better than the image that I am painting. iShowU now works like a charm.
  7. Thanks OlaHaldor for your offering, I will check it out. I have noticed that iShowU software (just started using it) generates over saturated color movies through all the possible export settings , not what I want. I can make color corrections in iMovie.. but just extra work and time. Just ran OBS and it has an upper limit size of 2560 x1440 to capture the base canvas Monitor size... Regrettably, this doesn't work for a 5 K iMAC as the image is severely truncated.

  8. There could be a simple solution that would maintain the "share your work" forum framework. Presently, when you mouse over one of the title topics, after somewhat of long wait, a second floating window appears to reveal the top portion of the actual post. Depending on how the post is composed, the floating window shows some combination of text and/or image. All the webmaster has to do is write some code so that a thumbnail of first image in the post shows up adjacent to the title of the post on the "share your work" page. The thumbnail's position could replace the current dot or bullet point. On seeing thumbnails located on the "share your work" page , the viewer will then have a better idea of what the post is about and whether or not to open the post or move on the the next post.
  9. Yes, probably " all in good time is Serif's motto" After all ,they are working on beta versions of AP & AD and are working on launching "publisher" soon. A redesigned " gallery page" as you suggest, would bring extra traffic to their site and give more exposure to the software solutions.
  10. Thanks v_kyr for your info. Looks like my version of Camtasia is so old that it doesn’t have those kind of input capture settings. thanks for your recommendation about hustl. I have started using IShowU and am very happy with it’s robustness and functionality. Are programmers the only ones to use underscores in their name/alias ?
  11. Yes the gallery app looks like a fine solution! Whether Serif has the time /interest or resources to deal with this upgrade is the question.
