  1. Owenr: I successfully ran your macro after converting each image to RGB/16, re-saving the tiff file then load and run the macro over the red layer. Your macro was simple and efficient. Now I have a composite I can continue to post- process. I should be able to modify this macro to add the Luminance, Ha, OIII, and SII layers as well
  2. Dr. Astronomy A couple of issues while trying to use the information you provided. 1. The macros are not a recognized format while trying to import each of the files into the macro library. The extension must be .afmacros not afmacro. Otherwise the AF import does not recognize the file. 2. If I rename the extension to .afmacros then I get "Unexpected Macros Format' error while importing the file to add to macros library. The import function now sees the extension but get the error. 3. I tried the initial steps you outlined above on you post from March 4th disabling the channels does not work so I have not been able to figure out what is going on from your process to make corrections to it. I have each image layer in greyscale, 16-bit and mode set to RGB ready to covert to individual layers for LRGB I use a much more robust tool (Astro Pixel Processor) tool for stacking and registering all my images before importing each of the LRGB & Ha images into Affinity.
  3. Dr. Astronomy, Thanks for the information. I have tried several different methods and I get a few steps further each time but not as quick if I were in PS CC I'm not fond of PS and I am going to give your method a try since I enjoy using Affinity a whole lot better than PS. Yes, a little long winded but if it works than a macro is in order. Thanks again.
  4. I have not been able to find any information in help files or video tutorials of how to make a composite image from separate RGB layers. I've done this in PS but can't seem to find a way to do this with affinity. I've imported my RGB Astronomy images into a layered RGB image and filled each layer with color in the channels section. I just cannot figure out to whit's end how to combine them into a composite so I can finish processing the images. Flatten or merge don't seem to work. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
  5. How about adding the FITS file extension so those of us who do Astrophotography can import the files directly into the Affinity Photo program without having to go through a 3rd party conversion program and stacking them in a 3rd party program then having to convert those LRGB images to TIFF extensions before importing the LRGB TIFF channels to Affinity Photo? It would sure be nice to just import the FITS images into the 'Add' Affinity stacking feature of Affinity then they would be easily moved to the channels without using third party programs before stretching and processing.
