    Starship trooper

    Robert Heinlein would've been proud to have this as the cover on his book.
  2. Most, if not all examples of background removal to retain hair are done with simple and plain backgrounds. No one (or videos) that I have seen have been prepared to explore more intricate operations where the background is multi-coloured because it's a nightmare. Plain backgrounds are easy so people will always post their work demonstrating it. It's not impossible to remove busy backgrounds, but man, it's certainly hard.

    No matter. . .still looks good to me. Out of curiosity, where did the spaceship design come from?

    Very nice.

    I like your comment, Mike. All I started out to do was to have fun and enjoy myself and to that extent I am. Perhaps it all comes down to styles and preferences - I'm not so sure that I have either, but I still have fun regardless.

    Actually this particular project I have undertaken came from a whim, a whim I had to have some amusement with several B &W photos which I fancied turning to colour. I am not a professional by any means so I guess everything I do in the world of images is a candidate for criticism. I do things which look good to me and for the most part it is a "live" composite which I don't fuss over that much. I have no interest in whether or not my work appears as natural or not - just as long as I am happy with it, then all's fine by me. Perhaps you might reconsider where you focus your own efforts on and stop trying to imprint your own personal preferences on someone else's enjoyment. Just saying. btw. . .I do not like your re-rendering.

    Thanks Mike. Apart from the flesh tones I'm working blind with no real idea what colours the clothing should be? Walls and floors are pretty much a given thing and I search for reference which is not always successful. But I'm having fun with this project and glad to read it is giving you wonderful memories. More to come later. . .

    And another from the same project. Slightly different hues on this one.

    Thanks MikeW. As a fan I had to do some justice to her picture.

    And then that happened!

    Since leaving PS and switching to AP I've never looked back. Great software - great team.

    Blur Brush

    Have you selected the layer that you wish to apply the blur on from the layers panel?

    Free hand selection tool

    After making your selection click on "SELECT" and locate "FEATHER" and adjust as desired.
  17. In that case I am of no help.
  18. Yes...for those who use Designer, but as I do not I wasn't sure.
  19. First we need to clarify which affinity product you're using?
  20. 1. To merge down select that option in the layers tab. 2. Sorry, I don't know.
  21. This image, for a bit of mild amusement, is essentially a fake. I found an old picture of some young women on a beach which in its original state was sepia toned. After three head-swap operations (you figure it out - it's not hard) and a bit of fine trimming, I had three of my favourite yesteryear comedy actresses in the frame. So to take it even further I thought I would try to recolour the whole image using mask layers with the appropriate colours. I replaced the sky because it didn't look that good. I had no idea what colour the swim suits should be so I went for the 'washed out' look as best I could. Once all that was done I put the final image through a filter to produce the desired result, I then placed it on top of a serated edged card. I then stressed the edges a bit in an attempt to make it look worn. Anyway, enough said. I hope I've produced something that appears authentic even if it's not.
  22. Not so amateurish after all.

    As this is an English language forum (at least I think it is), I would hope that comments made were understandable for all readers of said comments.

    Affinity Photo for Windows - 1.7.2

    Crikey! The App loaded at light speed, way better than it was. Haven't had a chance yet to dabble, but so far I'm impressed. Great work developer guys.
