  1. That would be extremely valuable option, use this approach very often in PS
  2. In PS I often use selections based on tonal range for exposure blending and other fine corrections. AP allows making of tone-based selections, but it offers only three ranges, which are pretty harsh and rarely hit the precise range that I need. Combining it with blending options somewhat helps, but not quite. My question is: is it possible to edit the tonal range used for selection? And (ideally) visually - like in PS and it's luminosity masks?
  3. I've contacted with Oleg Sharonov, the creator of 3D LUT Creator and he would be happy to provide better integration with Affinity Photo - similar to the way it is integrated with Photoshop and some other Adobe products. It is pretty convenient to import images from PS 'on the fly' and sent prepared LUT back, where it as automatically applied to the source image. Now it is necessary to export image, open it in 3DLC, export lut file, import it in AP... All he needs is AP's API specification.
  4. I just love power of Blend options tool, but think that it can be boosted even further. Adding an option to select not only luminosity as the argument and not only R, G or B will be a major boost. Ideally it should be defined on HSL space (or, even better, on a wide range of color spaces like LAB, CMYK, WRGB etc) - a combination of all three parameters. It would let the user to apply adjustments very selectively... like adding vibrance to not saturated yellow objects in given brightness range, for instance. I am sure everyone would love to be able to add a point to the curve with some sort of picker tool Saving blending curves as presets is a must as well. It is often need to apply identical adjustments to a large set of images and now it turns into sort of guessing game - some variations are just inevitable with current approach.
  5. Thank you! Hope it will be implemented soon )
  6. Well... the subject :) I was searching help and online tutorials, but failed to find the definite answer. If it is not possible, please consider it as a feature reqiuest
  7. You describe the process of manual HDR Ghost removal - it is pretty well described in the proper tutorial ) I am trying to stack exposures, it is different approach
  8. I use extensively the program 3D LUT Creator - it allows create 3D LUTs in extremely powerful manner, I just love it. It allows import an image opened in the Photoshop at the current moment, create LUT and send it back in Photoshop where it is applied as an adjustment layer. The creator of this program is ready to provide support of Affinity Photo, but he needs to know how he can communicate with AP. If it is possible - how the right person in AP team can be contacted to provide necessary information?
  9. HI everyone, I am playing with exposure fusion (following the tutorial ) - in some situations I give preference to this method over HDR because it lets produce more natural looking images (and because AP's HDR processing is very slow) . It came into my head that it is possible to adjust contribution of separate layers by painting of mask with soft brush. It kinda works, but no matter how soft brush I use, the edge looks very harsh. Do I miss something fundamental about it?
