  1. After I stepped away for a while and looked back at the photos , I realized that they still had a color cast after running the macro. Here's a better example adding some white balance as well as a curves adjustment after macro. I realize there is some additional tweaking you can do. It's not perfect, but it's the process that I find most useful for removing color casts from old photos. I hope it helps.
  2. Here is the macro that I use. Remove Color Cast.afmacro
  3. I have a macro that helps removes color cast: Steps: Duplicate layer Invert duplicated layer Run Average Blur on duplicated layer Change duplicated layer to Soft Light Repeat steps on original layer if needed and adjust opacity. Picture below was after two iterations. Again, it's quicker if you record steps and save as macro. You may need to mask certain areas out (i.e. see uniforms in 2nd picture - did not mask) to reduce coloring areas that you don't want colored. The 3rd image shows masking on darkest areas and use of White balance filter.
  4. I duplicate (ctrl+J) the mask, then drag it down to the layer I want to apply to.
  5. I would second this request. While I like the macro availability it is limiting. Having an API to allow us to create our own scripts (preferably in python) would be a major plus.
  6. @JimmyJack - I get same faint line on your file as well. Thanks for sharing... This is beginning to sound like "do you hear laural or yanny" .. Looks to be luck of the draw , whether you get the artifacts or not. Thanks to everyone for checking out and offering your suggestions. I should have mentioned.. I'm running on a Windows 10 system... Not sure if that has anything to do with. Maybe one of the developers can check this out.. Thanks again. Chip
  7. Zooming in and out has not impact... The artifact is still there.. If I hide the black layer below, then the circle disappears which implies that AP is not properly selecting all the pixels.
  8. Wosven, Thanks, recreated with 0 feather and Antialias turned off. Still having the issue..
  9. Redraw is not the issue. It stays with the image.
  10. I am trying to create two layers from a selection. One layer has the selected data and the other layer has the non selected data. I would expect that when I look at the two layers I should have a complete picture. The issue is that I have a faint outline of the selection area and the size of that outline gets larger with feather. But, even with a 0 feather the outline still shows up. To recreate: Create a black pixel layer. This layer is so you can see the outine. Create a white pixel layer on top of the black. Make a selection and copy (ctrl-c), then paste into a new layer (ctrl-v) Select previous white layer from which you copied and hit delete key to cut out selection. Hide the marching ants (ctrl-d) and you should see the faint outline. I've tried different scenarios including inverting selection and pasting onto a third layer and I still get artifacts.
  11. I think what you are looking for is the Pixelate Filter... Filter > Distort > Pixelate.. Then change the Quantization value.
  12. Thanks Dave... This guide is really helpful. You Rock!!!
  13. Dave, Thank you for putting this together. I'm running AP on Windows and noticed that I do not have several (i.e. Dissolve, Linear Burn, Linear Dodge and Divide) in my layer blend modes. Are these blend modes available on the Mac version and not Windows version? Also, I have an 'Add' blend mode in AP, which is not mentioned in your documentation. I'm wondering if that is the same as Linear Dodge.
  14. Forgive me if this has been suggested or brought up before. Is there any way to break the forums up by product (i.e. Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer)? The current format makes it difficult for me to determine what product the discussion is about if tags are not used. Thank you,
  15. TheFeralOne, You'll get over it .. I felt the same way about PaintShop Pro... I've written over 20 scripts (macros) to make that software easier to use and to do what I needed (i.e. luminosity masks, auto align, etc..) But, I found that Affinity Photo does almost everything I ever scripted much better and faster. As this software matures, I'm sure the Macro's will get better as well.
