  1. I think that what Roaring Fish is asking for is the same thing that I'd like to see: Being able to call an external program to edit a pixel layer that -- after editing -- is reloaded by AP. One use case would be the NIK Collection. You could work in Affinity Photo to do some editing. You can then put the result into a new pixel layer which you can edit with any of the NIK tools (e. g. export it as TIFF-16, call one of the NIK tools, edit it there, save the same file and import the changed file as the same pixel layer in AP). That would be really helpful.
  2. When working with lens correction in the Develop Persona, a "Crop to opaque" option would be really useful (the same as in the panorama function). I'd highly appreciate if you could implement this feature. Thanks in advance. Keep up the excellent work! :)
  3. Please let me stress that I love Affinity Photo and appreciate the hard work you are putting into it. I have one suggestion to make AP even better. ;) When developing RAW images in the Develop Persona, a lot of presets heavily depend on the camera you shot the images with and on other circumstances like ISO value, aperture, zoom level etc.. One example would be that heavy noise reduction doesn't make a lot of sense for ISO 80 but it really does for ISO 6400. My feature request is this: please introduce a function to make presets sync to EXIF data. What I mean by this is this: When creati
  4. Hi all, I'm currently trying to work on my RAW image development workflow and I'm struggling with two problems. The first problem is that there's no automatic lens correction in the Develop Persona. While I appreciate that by default the image isn't heavily treated by the automatic assistant, I still think that doing lens corrections automatically would greatly improve the workflow. I'm working around this by using presets for certain lenses and zoom factors. However, saving a preset isn't a good way to solve this problem because you would have to create several presets for a zoom lens
  5. Hi Jake, very nice tutorial, very instructive and easy to understand. Thanks for all the work you put into it!
  6. Maybe I'll revisit my original request then. :) I think that it would improve the workflow, especially since some labels are not close enough to their text fields (in the HSL adjustments dialogue for example) to intuitively use this feature. I'd highly appreciate this enhancement. Cheers! :)
  7. Hm, you're right. Now that you mention it, I feel kind of stupid not to have thought about this. :rolleyes: Still, adding this function for the case that you simply close the dialogue window with the window controls on top would be quite helpful.
  8. When working with any type of adjustment that has the option to enter values into a textfield (e.g. HSL adjustment where you can manually enter values for color shift, saturation etc.) I've noticed that when you click the text field, none of the text in the box is preselected. This means that when you want to change something from "0%" to "50%", you either have to double click the value again or manually delete everything that is in the text box to enter a new value. I would find it far more practical if clicking a text box would immediately preselect all the text in the box so that I can simp
  9. When working with AP it sometimes happens to me that I select a new Live Adjustment Layer or Adjustment Layer that I don't really want (either because I change my mind or because I selected the wrong adjustment). Right now a new layer is created and after closing the adjustment window I have to delete the new layer (that has no adjustments) by hand. This is not practical in terms of usability. I would suggest this workflow: 1) Creates a new adjustment layer. 2) The adjustment window appears 3) The user either makes changes or doesn't do anything. These cases should be considered like thi
  10. Hi MEB! Thanks for the welcome. :) I'm running Yosemite 10.10.4 (14E46).
  11. Please excuse any strange translations of tool names or tool window titles, I use AP on a German OSX with German locale so I have to guess the correct names (more or less). I've tried the search function to find out if this has been reported before but I was unable to find any related bugs, so here I go: I've had a lot of trouble with disappearing tool windows in fullscreen mode. I can reproduce this problem at least with the "Refine selection" tool and other tools as well. To reproduce the problem, try the following: Go to fullscreen mode. Make a selection. Select "Refine selection" tool
  12. Hi Chris_K, hi MEB, thanks for your help, it's highly appreciated. :) While we're at it, I assume that "Ineinanderkopieren" (German locale) is the current localization for "Overlay" (English locale) in the layers view. I'd replace "Ineinanderkopieren" with "Ɯberlagern" (please note the u-umlaut at the beginning). It makes more sense and is the appropriate literal translation for "overlay". Cheers, c-s
  13. I'm having trouble with dialogue boxes for Live-Layers in Photo on my German locale OSX (though I think that the problem also exists in other dialogue boxes). The text e.g. for the checkbox that says "Preserve Alpha" in the English version overlaps with the button to the right side that says "Merge" in the English version. Both can't be read anymore and the usability is pretty bad. I run Photo on a MacBook Pro (13 inches, Mid 2010) using the built-in screen at a resolution of 1280x800 (maximum resolution of that particular MacBook). I attached a screenshot of the Gaussian Blur dialogue box to
