    Affinity Photo Customer Beta ( - RC2)

    Thanks Andy, and the S&H filter is indeed working on OSX 10.11.6!

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta ( - RC2)

    Incremental update not working, Auto update downloads full 442 mb version, should it be so?
  3. ditto on OSX 10.11.6, guess it kind of follows. Otherwise, so far looking good on the old system.
  4. Node nudge not working in Curves Adjustment layers or in Develop persona in OSX 10.11.6 Not seeing any of the reported problems with HSL, Highlight & Shadow adjustments, masking brushes & interface. Performance on 10.11.6 much improved all round, great new features, enjoying the Procedural Texture filter. Resetting the filter introduces a white grid on the filter layer but it goes away on deleting the layer.
  5. In OSX 10.11.6 in LEVELS adjustment, holding ALT does not show a clipping preview, but adjustment works fine. Nice, NEFs loading into Serif Raw much quicker now, not so to Apple Raw and Apple Raw still only displays in landscape.
  6. Upgrading slow on OSX 10.11.6 but upgraded & relaunched with no problems
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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 ....

    NEF management

    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.

    NEF management

    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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
