  1. Simply astonishing. Great car as well.
  2. Side-by-side comparison.
  3. Ahh I'm on a laptop, now your beta comments make sense. So yeah there might be some technical differences between the 2 versions. But the ground basics apply to both. Yeah I use multiple points in my gradient, it will give more control and more effects. For example the base colour of metal is dark grey but the highlights are often blueish. I save the most used gradients, it just saves time.
  4. That's how I started. But there is no need to make a mask first. The adjustment layers are a mask themselves. Just add a Gradient, invert the layer (or not if it's not needed) and paint on it with the brush. But that's not a bad start. Better than most beginners. Most of the time they start with pixel layers and really oversaturated colours
  5. I never use pixel layers because I like to stick to non-destructive layers. Plus pixel layers make the file exponential larger. This one of Kay Aldridge was done for Reddit. You can check out exactly how I did this one on Twitch. 3 hours in 2 sessions. The videos are active for 1 month I think: https://www.twitch.tv/notredamnn/videos/all Source file can be found here Don't hesitate to ask anything, that's what this forum is for after all
  6. Ok, thx. It's for Photo indeed. I think i'll just stick to adding the adjustments to the presets and use it from there.
  7. Let's say I have 2 documents. One is 200x150 and the other is 100x100. If I have a pixel or adjustment layer and copy it into the other document there is an overlap. Is there a quick way or shortcut to adjust the layer size to the current document size?
  8. You'd be surprised of what can be done. Why not post one, maybe I can give some advice.
  9. I already planned on doing that. This forum has it's emphasis on the how and not so much on the end-result. I have fine-tuned my workflow in 3 general steps. The scanning is not done in AP but the restoration of the original is. Second stage is masking all the areas and tone (colour) them. The masking is done with contrasting, and mostly wrong colours. If all the masking is done the colours are changed to correct colours. Final stage is colour grading and other post techniques very common to regular photography post production. So here it is: life in the 20th century without Affinity Designer
  10. The better the original the less post is needed. And you nailed it with this one, just subtle adjustments. I like it though there is a bit of a green cast, at least on my screen, on the shadow tones. Especially her hair at the left side looks green.
  11. Well the photo is nice and the dog is a cutie. But without the original shot it's hard to judge what has been done in AP.
  12. Thanks MEB. More than happy to share my work while I still fiddle around with various techniques. Last two days I was playing around with AP's native blend mode instead of the cumbersome luminosity masks. Was a bit counter-intuitive at first but once you get the hang of it, it produces stellar results. I'll stick to them for a while Background story here on my FB page.
  13. Awesome work!
  14. This one was nice to work on. A good quality photo helps a lot!
