    ivanhurba reacted to R C-R in Affinity, we need clarification: are you or aren’t you working on a DAM?   
    I am not sure that would be very practical, if for no other reason than Affinity's native file format would have to support whatever DAM features that Persona would provide. That means changing the file format for everybody. Otherwise, there would be different versions of the format that users who did not buy the Persona could not use.

    ivanhurba reacted to Five Photos in Affinity, we need clarification: are you or aren’t you working on a DAM?   
    In case you’re a Mac / iOS user and only need a simple DAM that works well with Affinity for editing, then Apple Photos is actually a solid and free solution. (Well, you might need to pay for more iCloud storage depending on if you want to use the iCloud Photo Library and how many photos you want to store in the cloud). 
     
    I used that combination for a long time and only switched to Lightroom because of Apple’s very limited Metadata and filtering options etc.

    I believe it's supposed to be a forthcoming module for Luminar – which means the DAM element has not been released yet (scheduled for 2018 AFAIK), even though the PC beta of Luminar has been released.
     
    *think of it as a DAM 'persona' for their version of AP (i.e. Luminar).

    Yes, I think that looking at DaVinci's masking and keying, or at incredible tools like 3D LUT Creator really shows how much Adobe has been fast asleep on their laurels with their still photography software in the last few years.
     
    It's surprising how much of Affinity Photo has been primarily inspired by Photoshop and its sometimes cumbersome workflows. There is a whole other world out there if you look at Flame/Smoke, Resolve, Scratch, Nuke, and even After Effects, not just with respect to masking, keying and color correction. I'd love to see the folks at Serif look beyond Photoshop more and really redefine what a modern raster image processor can be, even if it comes at the cost of increasing the learning curve for switchers a bit.

    ivanhurba got a reaction from paolo.limoncelli in Saturation curves for AP   
    I wrote this on twitter and was recommended to do it here, so let's have fun.
     
    I wonder if it would be possible to have a Curve editor for the saturation as in Davinci Resolve. It's very powerful and easy to use and could speed things up to control saturation by their luminance level without going to masks. Of course, their other curves are very useful too without the need to touch sliders or masks but the Luma makes desaturate the shadows and highlights a breeze.


     
    Thanks and keep up the great work you do!

    If you delete an artboard, AD asks if you want to keep the objects in it or not. However, if you delete the artboard & keep the objects, they no longer will be clipped to the artboard's dimensions & you will be right back where you started from.
     
    But I am not sure why you would want to delete the artboard. Like Fixx said, document cropping is not a standard feature of a vector graphics app. Because vectors are defined in geometric terms they don't use a lot of file space compared to a raster image -- for example, a rectangle shape uses the same small amount of file space no matter what size it is, & any part of it not on the canvas or in an artboard won't print or be included in a raster format export.

    It's possible with a curve adjustment blended to saturation, to desaturate you move the point on the curve UP if it's in the lower half (darks), DOWN if it's in the higher half (highlights).

    I agree with this. It should be a simple but important tool that saves time and guessing work when you need it. I don't want to open other program or jump through hoops just to adjust the canvas or document size. let's hope it can be introduced in the next update.
