  1. Are the missing blue lines just a UI bug?
  2. Aha! Those suggestions are going to be useful for a problem I've been stuck on for some time. Thanks (yet again) Toltec for helping me think outside the [marquee] box!
  3. With all due respect to everyone at Serif, Affinity's 'Help' sections are more what you'd call.... ...."guidelines" ....
  4. Holy Mackerel, Batman. Did you juggle on a unicycle at the same time?
  5. Thomas, This excellent video by James Ritson shows what I believe is the behaviour you are looking for. R
  6. Thanks, Patrick. That search engine is......at best....shall we say.....rather..... inadequate.

    ... And again here. Never has the forum designation "Newbie" seemed less appropriate!

    Your English is great and so is the technique! Thanks for sharing.

    That'll make a great advert for Affinity. They should pay you!

    Superb. Your best effort yet. The image, the lighting: exquisite. This iconic image would be at home in National Geographic magazine. Yes really. Seriously well done. (And that's not taking into account the technical limitations of your equipment). Bravo! (If I wasn't such a nice guy I'd be feeling jealous.)

    The size of the 1:1 image we can see obviously depends on the pixel dimensions of the image you choose to upload. You'll notice a variation of this around the forum depending on how much detail people are happy to share. You have generously posted a wonderful hi-res image for us to enjoy. The detail on the coils of the proboscis is amazing. R Looking again at your photo, don't you think it also looks like a parrot wearing super-bling designer shades? (No disrespect to you intended).

    You've gone to great lengths to capture an astonishing image, especially when viewed full size. Maybe you could edit your post to remind people to click on the posted image to view it as a (much sharper) pop-up, then wait until the mouse cursor turns to a plus symbol before clicking again to open it larger in a new window, then click on that image to finally view your eye-popping full size photo. It's certainly worth it!
  13. Excellent presentation! A great showcase for your skills. The interactive illustrations really reinforce the text. A superb "hands on" teaching resource.

    Is this tutorial any help?
  15. I'll have a guess... It looks like you're stretching data that isn't there, e.g. manipulating a compressed file. The algorithms in the software can't replace what has already been discarded. Try ignoring the (technical) histogram; if you just look at the image you've created it still looks fine doesn't it. So don't worry. Affinity is manipulating your image just as well as anything else would.
