  1. Hello Gabe, Thank you very much for responding to my question. Unfortunately I can't upload the file, because the upload aborts after about 10%. Is there a size limit for the upload? The Publisher file is 12 MB in size. After many tries the upload worked.
  2. Hello, with a more complex document (62 pages) I have a kind of program crash. It doesn't crash the whole program, but a small text change (deleting a page break marker) in a text frame makes further inputs/changes impossible. The cursor flashes but does not react anymore. It is also no longer possible to save the file. The error can be reproduced on different devices. Can I send the file (to the Support/DevTeam) without it being public? A solution of the problem would help us a lot. Many thanks in advance.
  3. Hi Jon, Because I' m home now, I use my private profile. ToC crash: Removing the pins/pinning was also my workaround. Text frame moving crash: It crashes every time on my first/main Monitor, but not on the secound one. Here are some background details about the document: It is a recreation of a Word 2013 file. All texts were first copied into a text editor (Notepad) and then pasted into Publisher to remove all formatting. The images were transferred directly to Publisher using Copy/Paste.
  4. Maybe these older styles from me are also interesting for you...
  5. Hello, I have created several text effects, which I would like to share with you. The first three effects are the most interesting. Effects one and two use live scattering filters and blur to create a stamping effect on normal text/fonts. The second effect adds a noise filter to simulate heavy wear, which is different one every letter. The third effect is the typical vintage 3D effect. The effects are created by layering several live filters and effects. 4 and 5 are just tests/bonus. :-) Advantage: The effects and the text remains editable. Disadvantage: Memory and processor have to work more. The recommended application is to open the text effect file in another window, enter the desired text and then copy over the group. Use the effects in your work as you like. (Public Domain) (But please don't sell the text effects as such.) Have fun, Martin Stamp-Vintage-3D-Text-Effects(Forum-Affinity-MartinB78).afphoto
  6. In the adjustment layers ist a adjustment layer called LUT (Look Up Table). There you can open the cube-files.
  7. After a BSOD-crash of my computer, i can't close "Photo" normaly. Only the hard way with the taskmanager. "Photo" was opening a file at the time of the crash. Now every time i try to close the programm, i get the message that a file is currently loading and the progrann can't close because of that. Any Idea to fix this?
  8. Everything is done in AP, no plug-ins or external Images. I don't uploaded the AP-Source-file, because it's over 570MB big. :-)
  9. In the fx-settings, there is a opacity percent value seting to left of the close-button. At 100% your text is fully visible again. I don't know how it's called in engish, because i use german version of AF.
  10. Source Code and Windows .exe are now on GitHub. https://github.com/MartinBusse/HaldCLUT-to-Cube-Converter
  11. Hello, here my Workflow for faking acrylic paintings in Affinity Photo using FotoSketcher(Freeware). I'm using FotoSketcher(.com) for the brushstroke effects. (PhotoArtist, AutoFX AutoMagic or Topaz Impression should work too, but not tested) Form the source image i generate 4 images with different minimal brush sizes, normaly 40, 20, 10 and 5. FotoSketcher settings: Painting 7(Gemälde 7). Have a look at the attached afphoto file. (It's simple, but complicated to explain) The images with thick brush strokes(40, 20) are used for the background and the remaining two images(10, 5) are for the subject und fine details. In Affinity Photo (or Designer) the image with bigest strokes gets loaded and used as main background and the others used as layers on top. My next step is adding layer masks and inverting (strg + i) them. A white brush on the mask is used to paint back the details. The Layer with fines strokes is only used for the face/eyes and other important details. Affinity Photo only: Now i combine the layers to a new layer for a paint effect. Dublicate the layer and apply "find edges" filter. Invert it (strg+i) and use curves to intens the borders. These two layers are needed for Lighting-Live-Effect and texture settings and notice the layer blending settings. Because i used a bw image as sample, i added some colour with extra layer ("Basecolour"). The last three layers adding some artistic feel to image. Colour variation layer: Colour variation are often used in paintings to fake details and add more life to a images. Warm layer: Add a warm orange colour tint to sun lit surfaces. Cold layer: To add a blueish ambient tint to some shadows. ps. You can use load you own brush as image in FotoSketcher. In Brush.zip are my test brushes. Brushes.zip Max_Schreck.afphoto
  12. Sorry, i used 7z for the zip-file with less common LZMA-compression, because of the better compression rate.
  13. For RawTherapee there is a nice collection of Hald Color Look-Up Tables, that i was missing in Affinity. So i started to programming and 400 Lines of c++ later, i had a nice converter... Over 300 LUTs of (old) analog films (BW / Colour) and colour effects. Look at the attached ZIP-File. (80 MB compressed, uncompressed 365 MB) The HaldCLUT LUT-Files are not created by me (one exception). License (CC BY-SA 4.0) is included. Have fun with it... ps. I am thinking about to relase the converter(Win/C++) (MIT-license) too. If you interessed, write me a message/post. HaldCLUT_for_Affinity.zip

    Thank you, a very good idea!
  15. Hi Kevin, i mean only the two lapel shadows where i pointed to.
  16. I really like it. Nice colours and style. Is the grayish shadow colour intended?
  17. Hello @Cglot, i don't know in which order the settings in Lightroom apply to the image and i'm too lazy to figure it out, so i don't try to mimic Lightroom in Affinity Photo... But i (tryed to) replicated the image style in AP. Some notes: - The start/before photo in the YouTube-video has already strong white balance settings, the screen shot is therefore problematic. - Your HSL-Settings affecting the Master-channel (all colours), but in the tutorial, the colours are separately edited. I attached my final/after image based on a screen shot and a Affinity Photo file (Brandon Woelfel Style.afphoto) with all adjustment layers i used. I hope you find it helpful.

  18. I know this under the name cameramapping. Here is a nice Blender-tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9r9tKX5olY Affinity Photos Impaint and mask refinment functions should be really helpful for creating the textures.
  19. Impressive! Only one little thing... For me it looks like the tires are floating in the air, because of missing ambient occlusion. A little bit of harder shodows where the tires contact the ground...
