  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.
  16. Hi Megan, if you have tried deleting all associated files & reinstalling AP, then try running EtreCheck. (http://etrecheck.com/#download) This is a diagnostic program that can help to show if there is anything causing problems with your mac. It’s a well known utility, nothing to fear and you can read about it on apple.com support pages etc. From reading your comments, if you are running OS X 10.11+ and have plenty of disk space available for swap files, i’m guessing it’s probably a ram issue.
  17. Hi JCMarriott, Following on from Callum, looking at your screenshots, your righthand image is very blurred. Looks as though the camera auto focussed on the window glass. The blur is probably the reason the pano doesn’t work. Have you tried using just the first two frames to see if they work, worth a go.
  18. Very strange I don’t see this on my ageing laptop, the latest beta processes RAW NEF files in the Develop persona and saves all noise & other adjustments without problem. And files export out of Photo with adjustments as expected. Gradients on the other hand are agony, machine grinds to a halt, which doesn’t happen in PS. MacBookPro5,3: Intel Core 2 Duo: 2.8 GHz: 8GB: OSX 10.10.5
  19. Hi Brian, You have probably tried this already but If you can locate your original JPG file, with the app running try dragging it onto the Affinity icon to have the program load the file. Works for me if a file is proving difficult.
  20. Hi MEB, Very curious, I did check in Resize Document before I exported the tiff, was shown as 300dpi (Also registered in the move tool as 300dpi) and the colour format is 8 bit RGB. Other than change the size, there was no adjustment because I was comping the sky into another image. On the basis of dopey customer syndrome, I just tried again, same jpg in AP, checked everything, same result in Preview & PS the res size still reads as 72dpi. Repeated exact same process in PS but as before res shows as 300dpi. Also exported as jpg same result, even tried another image, same result. Bigger snaps attached! Also if exported via Export Persona using the same image, the res in Preview shows as 300ppi, so no problem there. Only via the File>Export menu route for some reason it doesn't register.
  21. Hi, I have also seen this in AP ver 1.3.5/ Resizing an image in AP without resampling from 72dpi to 300dpi, when exported via file export displays as 72ppi in Preview and PS. The same image processed through PS correctly displays as 300ppi with image size reduced. If you compare exported images they are the same size, so maybe AP is not updating the resolution dialogue or maybe it's me!
  22. Hi cseeman, At the moment you can’t, officially. Hopefully this will come later. If you set the hand tool and ALT click or drag down from the ruler, you will get a guide but not as expected. Dragging from the top will give a vertical guide and from the side gives you a horizontal guide. Snag is the positioning is a bit hit and miss and you can’t move them afterwards! You can turn them off but the guide manager is not accessible in the develop module so any guides set this way have to be deleted using the guide manager in the Photo Persona. You can also process your raw without lens correction, develop it, set your guides in the Photo module & then go back into the develop module and the guides will be visible. Then you can do the lens correction and click develop again to return to the Photo persona.
