  1. When working on challenging images, it may be better go back to the initial raw development to fine tune the parameters to get he most out of the image file. The current version requires to user to close the image and reopen it which can be troublesome if file history is not enabled in macOS. Until the time when non-destructive Develop persona (raw development) is available, can we have the ability to undo the initial raw development? The history would just need to have "File open" as the first entry and reopen it upon user selection.

    Save History As Macro

    Great idea! If we have the ability to export the history as macro, please add the option to automatically import the macro file if it has the same name as the image file (ie. like a sidecar).

    History Branching

    This would be awesome when combined with snapshot, selective copy/paste of history and save history in document. It's like a virtual copy feature on steroid.
  4. When the raw output format is set to 32-bit (HDR) format in the Assistant dialog, are there any differences in making image adjustments (exposure, brightness, colors, white balance, shadow, highlight, ... etc ..., except noise reduction) within the Develop Persona compared to Photo Persona? In other words, what are the advantages in adjusting image parameters in Develop Persona? If there is no difference, wouldn't this method be partial workaround to the histogram bug in Develop Persona?
  5. Affinity Photo version 1.5.2 1. Auto select existing parameter to speed up data entry When the user clicks on the value box to enter a parameter value, the cursor is place at the position of the mouse click. It usually requires the user to select the entire contents and type over or backspace to clear the existing value. Data entry would be faster if AP auto select the entire value string when the user first click on the value box and the user just needs to enter a value over it. 2. Tone Mapping Persona - Collapsible Preset Area The tone mapping preset area is displayed permanently which occupied precious screen real estate especially if you are working a small monitor (eg. laptop). The preset is useful to get a starting point to work on, thereafter, most of the adjustments are carried out on the "studio" panel on the right. A collapsible preset area would give the user a bigger space to work on the image. 3. Default UI color Dark gray on even darker gray is hard to distinguish. This is especially true for the dynamic toolbar that shows the various mode for each tool the user is working on. For example, in the Pen tool, it is hard to distinguish at a glance which mode (pen mode, smart mode, polygon mode, ...) the pen is currently in. 4. Crop tool. Provide a modifier key to change the cursor from selection to move (vice versa) When the user first select the crop tool, the cursor is default to selection point even though the crop frame is displayed. The user can click on the edge handles to reside the crop frame or directly draw the crop frame using the selection point. If the user first change the the crop ratio, the selection point remains even though the crop frame is already displayed. There is no way to move the existing crop frame other than to draw a new one. It would be better to have a modifier key to toggle between selection cursor or move cursor. 5. HSL dialog. Ability to display all the colours instead of using a drop down In the HSL, it would be nice to display the colour swatch for the user to select instead of using a slower drop down menu. This way, the user can quickly and intuitively select the colours to adjust. 6. Photo / Developer Personas. Adjusting saturation & vibrance. In the Photo Persona, colour saturation is adjusted on the HSL adjustment whereas vibrance has a separate adjustment. In the Developer Persona, saturation and vibrance are grouped together. Would it be possible to standardise these adjustment in the two personas? 7. Blend mode I am a novice in using the blend mode and I find it hard to visualise the result. I'm wondering if an assistant and/or some presets would be useful to help users in utilising this feature.
  6. It would be nice to have the "extreme" option in the raw developer exposure settings. This would allow users to develop highly under exposed images, for example, when the flash did not go off.
  7. I agree. I use preset sizes all the time when exporting from LR. This would be a welcomed enhancement to the export dialog in AP.
  8. Hi everyone I'm new to Affinity Photo. I know there are many ways to create a mask for hairs and I am trying to master AP's selection refinement tool. I'm able to create a mask using AP's selection refinement tool with satisfactory result on some photos but I still can't figure out how the "Ramp" and "Border Width" options work and how to apply them to different situations. Take this image in GIMP's Masking hair with fine strands tutorial for instance. I know we can use the same method described in that tutorial but I can't figure out how to get AP's selection refinement tool to select the fine hair. Anyone has tips on the refinement selection tool to share? Thanks
