  1. Actually, to take care of that yellow tint, I had a duplicate layer with only the blue channel. Using blend mode as lighten makes it look like the original image. Not sure if the blur will act the same in a blend mode though. Then I guess you could group these two layers. If that doesn't make sense, please disregard. I'm a noob. #UPDATE# Nevermind, I see the yellow tint with the blur!
  2. Sorry, I misunderstood your question! Perhaps you could apply a Channel Mixer Live Filter as a workaround, seems to work:
  3. Hi @bit98, Here's how to isolate a channel for applying edits: See it in action: 9EBA8F80-5DF0-4AFC-8A30-FD4FF68FA30B.MOV Clicking in the 'edit icon' will toggle it on or off. Disabling it for a specific channel will prevent changes to that channel. Similarly, the 'eye icon' will allow you to toggle channel visibility. There's a tuto on this, scroll down to the Channel section:
  4. Please see attached video. After opening any slider's type-in menu in develop persona, i) close button doesn't work and reset the entered value the only way to get out is to select one of the preselection (9, 25, 50...) ii) tapping anywhere outside the slider's type-in menu but within the studio hides the panel e.g. clicking on the clarity label hides the panel iPad Pro 9.7", iOS Public Beta 7, Photo beta v1.6.5.59 24827172-9EC7-4F14-AE6A-B00BDB61D78D.MP4

    Where is the Keys?

    As an example, there is a 3rd pane for the Pen Tool: Likewise for some other tools, there are additional shortcuts .
  6. Two-finger tapping brings a contextual menu.
  7. Does the attached video help? It's about converting a canvas with white bckg to a transparent one. Transparent Canvas.MP4
  8. If you import the NEF file from iOS photo gallery in stacking, you'll end up with the JPG. Try copying a few NEFs to iCloud first, then import them in Affinity Photo in the stack mode, this time it'll import the actual RAW file. Then, I presume you'll experience the crash!
  9. Yes, This bug is persisting since the main launch afaik - so the devs should already be aware.
  10. The issue was resolved for all except stacking though, which still import JPG from the RAW. I hope they didn't miss it or that it is not a limitation. Currently importing RAW in "New Stack", as little as 2 x 12 Mb files, crashes the app every time. @Patrick Connor
  11. Hi, Please compare the first two attached items, which are the final outputs of a focus stack. 1+2+3+4: VS :A+B (i.e. [1+2] + [3+4]) Here's what's going on: 1+2+3+4.png is a focus stacked image from 1.jpg, 2.jpg, 3.jpg, & 4.jpg >> The result is blurry, so I tried dividing the task to help the alignment algorithm. A (1+2).png is a focus stack using only photo 1 & 2, while B (3+4).png is one using 3 & 4. >> These 2 intermediates, when combined will contain all 4 focus points (as would 1+2+3+4). A+B.png is a focus stack of A (1+2).png and B (3+4).png. >> This result is what I expected initially when merging the 4 photos at one go. This means that the current alignment is not optimal, perhaps you could offer an alternate mode where Photo would proceed by using intermediate image states, as I did above. There are different ways to approach this, perhaps the same result could be obtained by first combining 1 and 2, then the resulting image to 3, and finally the latter combination to 4 to get the final output. Or alternately, use some kind of algorithm/AI to determine the closest set of images to merge sequentially before the final render. Is this logic legit? I tried, it's repeatable. Thanks. 1: 2: 3: 4: A (1+2): B (3+4): Source_Photos.zip

    Loading OCIO color package

    @Lee D While renaming any folder to .ocio wouldn't work for everyone, anyone can use the .bundle extension to convert it into a package on macOS. Perhaps a workaround would be to allow Affinity Photo to handle .bundle formats? Currently it's grayed out when I try to open it through iCloud, see attached. OCIO Package via iCloud.MP4

    Loading OCIO color package

    Found what converts a folder renamed to ocio extension as a package: I tried installing Affinity Photo Trial on the macOS, hoping it'd register the extension, but I didn't work. Having a look at "Info.plist" from the "Affinity Photo.app" package contents, .ocio doesn't figure as a handled extension. Meaning, Affinity guys have something installed that makes .ocio being recognised as a document type in macOS, which is why this works for them but not regular users. @Lee D More about Document Packages: https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/CoreFoundation/Conceptual/CFBundles/DocumentPackages/DocumentPackages.html

    Loading OCIO color package

    Hi Lee, Please refer to the video from: This method doesn’t work for us common mortals, even if followed to the letter!
  15. Would like an update too. Is there anyone that can upload the big .ocio package (if the terms allows)? Thanks.
  16. You can check this thread out too: I also use FileExplorer, found it worth it to upgrade as we can then link Google Drive/Dropbox/OneDrive too and also edit files on any desktop linked share folders.
  17. Having the choice is great, but from time to time I rely on thumbnails to swift through the extensive presets (I'm not an advanced designer). On that note, I would like to see accurate thumbnails, please refer to the attached video. The initial state of the image is a non-flipped one, and thumbnails doesn't seem to take any modification into consideration. Granted, that would involve having small snapshots generated for the thumbnail preview (using resources), but rather have such accurate thumbnail previews, or none at all. 0C6F12A8-1CBF-49D3-BCD7-3036913DF0BB.MOV
  18. Hey peeps, I noticed two unusual behaviours in using selections. In the attached videos, T=5s-9s >> Each time I delete from the same selection, it gradually eats up the image. I would expect that once I deleted from a selection, there would be no more data to delete. T=21s >> I brushed over a hair portion, bottom left of screen T=37s >> You can see that when I delete from the selection, it deletes an even bigger portion than it did before the refinement. Are those behaviours normal? Thanks for assisting. Best, Yusha selecion_refinement.mp4
  19. My preferred method to load a font is through the Workflow app and this extension: https://workflow.is/workflows/437f80cc68574be9b9da2992d7c3e9ba Supports TTF and OTF, and Photo even support random characters from OTF's (the only iOS app I'm aware of that supports it). See attached example, where I've used my handwritten font >> the characters are randomized.
  20. Greetings, I also would like to add that renaming the folder with an extension doesn't make it into a package. Maybe you devs have a folder action that converts it automatically when renaming, or some developer utils make it possible. I tested it with fully uploaded files to iCloud, on Mac OS Sierra, please see attached video. ocio.mp4
