  1. For balance this is not always the case, I have a mid 2009 MacBookPro5,3 8gb it has no lag when using Liquify in latest release AP 1.66 set to use OpenGL. Tested on a 3mb jpg, 118mb tiff and a 460mb.afphoto file using all the liquify brushes & tested with 9400M & 9600M cards, both options are usable on all settings.
  2. Depends on what you are changing but I’ve got round this by 1 Enter your new colour code in RGB etc in Colour chooser, set to front swatch 2 Select layer with colour to change, go menus Selections>Select sampled colour, adjust tolerance as required 3 Layer> new fill layer changes to chosen colour Works pretty well and at least it’s non destructive, saving the selection keeps it editable, masking cleans up easily where needed.
  3. Hi Uffelfinn Your background layer is locked, hence the crosses showing on the move tool selection. (see MEB’s post above) When you click the padlock to unlock the layer, the move tool will move/transform etc. The new layer appears empty, nothing to select, so no selection bounding box. Unless it's black poodles on a black b/g, in which case ....
  4. Hi Safi, Not that I know of other than to create a preset in the Affinity develop module to replicate this. RawPedia’s link How to get Nikon ICM profiles from NX2. gives an explanation about Nikon’s use of profiles. But i don’t know how this could be used in AfP’s raw module.
  5. Hi Safi, As you probably already know even with all settings zeroed to original, Capture NX-D appears to apply a tone curve. If you haven't try checking your stored NEF picture control setting in camera or preferably with the Nikon Picture Control Utility. By default this is probably set to Standard, if you adjust it to neutral, it will be closer to an unadjusted raw import into Affinity Photo. Also you can manually adjust the tone curve etc in the Picture Control utility to your personnel preferences and save it to camera as a user preference. Hope that helps, actually once you are aware of the difference, it's not that relevant, the way you adjust your raw files is subjective. Just like the old days of colour printing and ektachrome processing on a hand line, great fun.
  6. Odd, this doesn't happen in AP for me, when i use these shortcuts the tools work as expected. Try as i may can't get it to not work, but i usually pan using the trackpad.
  7. Hi Colin, yes it is, if you check out the shortcuts page in the Affinity help files, it shows the key press order. ⌘+Space is the default OSX shortcut for a Spotlight Search, hence the beeping.
  8. Okay one of those occurrences! I think Affinity Photo is developing into an excellent tool and i really enjoy using it. But it can be a fickle beast at times, slows to a crawl, becomes jerky and unusable for no apparent reason. Then hangs and so on but generally an app restart sorts things out.
  9. Whoops, sorry I just realised that I have posted in the wrong place, I was attempting to reply to Burke082's other post at Photo looks worse after raw edit.
  10. Hi, this seems to be a recurring problem for people, for me it works no problem. I can't explain why it is not working for others, which is not very helpful. But i can say that it does work, there again i don’t have any problems with the way develop is working in it’s existing state. Not perfect but very usable. Last time I saw a post about this I ran a few tests but didn’t get round to posting. These were just done to play with the noise settings in Develop on a Nef original. I didn’t bother with any other corrections. Hopefully the screenshot captions are self explanatory.
  11. Just had to try this out, same thing and if you copy/paste the sRGB green layer back into the AdobeRGB it turns yellow??
  12. Hi If you haven't already have a look at the Lighting Effects filter under menu/filters/lighting, it's brilliant!
  13. Interesting contributions, had fun and learnt some stuff doing this. My AP version:
  14. I don't know if this thread is still alive, if so did anyone get a result? I tried every way i can think of but couldn't get it to work in AP, which probably means I'm missing something obvious.
  15. Just a thought, what version of AP are you using, in earlier versions, there was an issue where resized files were not displaying dpi correctly in other applications such as Preview & PS. Apparently this was due to the meta data not updating in AP exports, in current versions this is fixed.
