  1. Thanks to everyone who replied. Toltec had the answer I needed. The list in the Help files showed me what I need to know. After I learn the program much better, I'll try to create shorcuts for the edits I use often but which are not available in Edit/Preferences/Layers in my copy of AP.
  2. Hmmmm - I am probably not understanding what either of you are recommending. When I go through either of your recommendations, I see only a very few shortcuts, but I've already stumbled upon forty four shortcuts - I even stumbled upon one for HSL, so I know there must be more of them. What I am hoping for at the moment are shortcuts to the things I mentioned in my original post to this thread - Brightness, Exposure, Color Balance, Curves, Vibrance. If there are not shortcuts to these, that's okay - just tell me. Thanks.
  3. Windows 10 Newbie here - Can someone point me to a comprehensive list of keyboard shortcuts for AP Windows? I'm doing fairly well learning AP but I miss the keyboard shortcuts I used (and am still using) when working in PS CC. I have the Affiniti Photo Workbook and have pored over the shortcuts there. I've looked at the downloadable shortcuts for Windows. None of those sources provide all the shortcuts I'm hoping are available. I've learned about two dozen shortcuts, but I've been used to many more in PS CC. The ones which I "need" right now are those for Highlights/Shadows, Brightness/Contrast, Curves, Exposure, Vibrance, and Color Balance. I'm sure there are others which aren't springing into mind at the moment.
  4. AiDon - I got DeNoise 6 itself, outside of Topaz Studio, into the Filters of AP. Feels like a victory - Thanks for your help!
  5. Jon - still don't understand your reply, but with the help of another member, I got DeNoise6 into AP.
  6. Thanks AiDon - I' m making progress thanks to your help. I've got Topaz Studio available in AP Preferences. I didn't realize that the free, online version of Studio only includes the very old Topaz "Reduce Noise", and does not include any version of Denoise. I don't need and don't want the whole Studio. The older Reduce Noise was never very good, and it's still not very good. I'm going to see if I can get my copy of Denoise6 into AP - not supposed to work, but I'll try.
  7. I see that Topaz Denoise 6 is listed as being compatible with AP, but the link to the thread you mentioned is apparently broken. I get the message "you do not have permission to view this page". Maybe it's another forum or web site to which I do not belong?
  8. Soorry to appear dense, but - "Browse" button where? Not in AP. Not in Windows Explorer. And once I've located that "Browse" button, what do you mean by a "Select" button? Are you perhaps thinking of PS CC?
  9. I just tried the suggestion of clicking on the adjustment above the one you want to delete, in the History panel. I think V_KYR was thinking of what happens in the Layers palette, which I already knew about. Deletion from the History palette doesn't work, as far as I can tell, though it does work in Photo Shop. It's important, because some adjustments, like Denoise, don't show up in the Layers palette, so there's no way to adjust Denoise. If you've overdone Denoise, you're stuck, and must start over.Maybe the "Alternate futures" feature in v. 1.7 will work. I have played around with v 1.7 a little, mainly because its noise reduction is rumored to be much better than it was in 1.6. So far, I'm not convinced about Denoise in AP. It works, but Topaz is much better IMO. AS for "Alternative Futures", I don't see it in my copy of I guess the beta is beyond my technical abilities. I'd better stick to Photo Shop for now.
  10. Thanks - that helps a lot. It's not quite the same as PS, but I can make it work. - Just have to develop a new habit (not as easy to develop new habits as it used to be for me) :-) - Bill
  11. In my version of Affiniti Photo, the option to write to Edit/Preferences/Photoshop Plugins will not receive text. Has AP lost the ability to accept plugins?
  12. I see that Topaz Denoise 6 is listed as being compatible with AP, but the link to the thread you mentioned is apparently broken. I get the message "you do not have permission to view this page". Maybe it's another forum or web site to which I do not belong? Error code is 2F173/H
  13. Thanks to everyone who replied - sorry for this much delayed Thanks - no excuse except that I haven't been back to this forum for a while. I've viewed the "5 ways to sharpen" a few times, and now I think I understand how to sharpen in AP.
  14. In Photo Shop, the History panel shows all the changes which have been made to the image, as it does in AP. But in AP. In PS, I can discard a change by clicking on the History panel and dragging a History item to the trash can. I don't see a way of doing that in AP. Is there a way to discard a change in AP, other than making sure to do each change on a new, separate layer?
  15. Has your macro been taken down? I don't see it when I look at the "description" of your tutorial. But thanks for the tutorial. It helps a lot, even without the macro! Bill Hansen
