  1. Channels are usefull when you can have good contrats, here, we can see JPEG artifacts, and the image seems to be an already cut out image flattened on a grey background (worst colour for contrast since all channel have the same amount of colour with a neutral grey), and exported as lower resolution.
  2. Replacing text by Lorem ipsum and having empty picture frames is a good way to create a "template", with the appropriate name. This way, you'll know where to replace texts and pictures without doubt. You only keep the recurring items, and update them when needed.
  3. That's not the first post in another language, and there are longer than this one you didn't complain about. We can manage and translate those post if we want, or not and let people who are able to reply do it since they'll use better sentence that what can be produce by Google translate about technical terms specific to fields or applications that'll end up as galimatias. Some can read and reply in English, but not all of us, and we can be suspicious of Google translate… some translations are more fun than accurate. Most of the time, people able to help in the OP language will do it, if they don't miss the post, and that's a nice side of this forum.
  4. +1 I had to use a colour adjustement layer to work on a background of the same blue as the guides and frames, or I wouldn't have been able do distinguish them.
  5. Hi, Jungle or Nature palette as in this page? You'll find their product here: https://www.frankentoon.com/product-page/concept-master-vol-1-nature
  6. Oh damn! I'm not a morning person… And I need more coffee to open my eyes before complaining about bugs Sorry @Sean P, I never search the styles, and didn't think about it.
  7. Hi, On AD .445 (because some bugs prevent me to use last versions), it's impossible to add a second style with a stroke of a different width, and the only solution is to add a new category to save this style. But there's another bug: I tried again today — why not? another day, another AD behaviour?! — to add another stroke with a different width and a different pressure curve, and this actions deleted all styles from the 2 previous categories with styles of the same ilk!!!! Going back in the history or reopening the file didn't restored the styles in those categories.
  8. No, I didn't, that's why there some errors, like the "Y" and the ">", and some part on the arms. This isn't enough for complexe hair… that's always a pain to do. With those, perhaps doing a selection from the channel, and using this selection and a black brush on the mask can help. But if the hair and the background a in similar tones, it's nearly impossible to do. At least for me
  9. That's tricky in other apps too. With APub you need to select back "no change" or similar, but the best is to apply again the based on style, and do the few modifications before creating the new style. Another solution is to use the "Reset formatting" button before modifying the style (perhaps keeping the style on another paragraph to check the parameters): Usually, once I've got a test paragraph with nice modifications, I would create a new paragraph with pure "cck_Body", apply only the needed modifications using the Paragraph or Character panel, (checking with the test paragraph if needed), and once done, use the "Add para/char style" buttons in the Text styles panel.
  10. There's a problem with your style. It should be based on Body, but when looking at the differences, or added parameters, there's so many of them that it looks like a new style. cck2v2.afpub
  11. @princatko I was able to re-upload _PP_1254 but not the other one, each time it show the real size of the file after upload, but if I try to edit the post, the size is wrong
  12. Or being able to edit styles the same way we can edit adjustement layers (panel with options).
  13. It doesn't happen everytimes, but sometimes I need too to close AD to modify files o Win 10.
  14. It's very usefull since you know how many lines of text you need your editor or client to suppress so it will fit on your page, or you know how many lines you need to recover (using different tricks like tighter justification here and there) in the previous pages for your text to end at this point. No need to expand the frame to check how many lines are out… and resize it one it's done.
  15. You can do better spending more time on it. The inpainting tool can be confused if there's not enough pattern around to use, or enough regular pattern (and those feathers are confusing, trying to reproduce them logically isn't easy!). In this case it's using the green more often than the feathers.
  16. @princatko Hi, Here the files, I mainly adjusted the one on white background for the hairs, and completely forget to check the masks —as can be seen with rhis screenshot! — but the selections weren't bleeding like yours. Try to modify some parameters in the reffine panel. We don't need a perfect selection, the outside is covered with the layer without "white paper", this one is only to have the inside on white background easily. If there's a little bit transparency on some hairs, it should feel more natural on another colour, since usually this colour appears in the hairs. Speed = errors The channels can be effective, especially when working in CMYK, when needing to select the sky: using the yellow channel help a lot. It's not helpfull with hairs or faces that contains a lot of subtle colours, unless you need to correct a bad picture with red faces! I use less this technique in AP since I don't find it as easy than with another app.a
  17. And the parameters for hairs that need more precision on the second one: _PP_1233v2.afphoto
  18. 4 and 6 minutes. I'll post later the AP files, not time for upload huge files, I need to go to work photos.zip Details : Most of the time is spend using the selection brush in a smaller size than needed, perhaps, and processing the reffine selection on my not too performant PC. 1. Dupplicate layer. 2. Apply erase white paper on the bottom layer. 3. Selection brush on the top layer, reffine selection to selection. Shrink selection -1. Add a mask.
  19. When you're on the Export persona, and in the slice tab, you select one and hit the bin at the bottom. You can resize an existing slice too, manually or entering values in the transform panel.
  20. Without the image, it's difficult to find a solution. If you need to do this with 40 images, perhaps an easy solution would be to use 1 layer with the image with "erase white paper" at the bottom, and another of this image with enough feather in the selection that those white borders disappear.
  21. Try looking at the Text frames panel if the option "ignore text wrap" isn't checked. For the other questions, I'm not sure I understand them: when I click on an image and drag it out of the page, it comply! Perhaps you pin it (a blue line should show where it's put in your text, where there's a blur pin) or put it inline in your text (if you try to drag it, a red cross will appear with your cursor)? Is one of those icons active when you select it?
  22. Yes, a little touch of inpainting, and clone tool with some adjustments. IMG_0232rr2.afphoto
  23. Usually tabs and wrapped text aren't friends, whereas "indent here" is more flexible.
  24. Again: +1. No Walt, this is meant to modify existing portions of text, not to apply some paragraph styles to the selected text and some characters style to parts of this same text. If your paragraph style begin by A and your character style begin by Z… Here some examples (I won't count the styles), for a book with french and english texts, a small magazine, and a more complexe one: Usually, I would organize them in folder depending of sections where they need to be used (magazine), and I would have paragraph and character panels on a second screen. On ID, I would have next styles, object styles and a script to force apply styles from the object style informations, or from the 1st selected paragraph to the following ones. With APub, I need to scroll a lot up and down to find the styles I want to apply, or use shortcuts, but there's a limit to those, since they're mainly used for usual styles in all documents and our capacity to memorize them.
