  1. Hi Stanley, thanks so much for all of your help and patience. I finally got it in the end. I really appreciate your help; knowledge for the future. Thanks again and all the best.
  2. Hi Stanley, thanks a lot for your help. I appreciate the time you have taken to look through everything. I don't seem to be able to reproduce what you have done, however I will keep trying in AP with your instructions. If you could do a point by point, from the very start, that would be great, however I understand if you don't have time. I'm not sure how many layers you have and how you got the blue layer. Is your blue layer a grey scale layer of the blue channel (of the original image) with a curves adjustment on it? Or did you just clear the red and green channels from a duplicate of the original layer? Did you put the blue layer above the original layer? Or the original layer above the blue layer? I tried both ways (original layer above the blue layer, and blue layer above the original layer) and couldn't get it to work. After changing the blend mode to "colour", when I drag down on the red and green lines in the source box on the original layer, the layer disappears; same for when I do it on the blue layer. Really not sure what I am doing wrong, albeit I am very new to this program. I'm truly sorry for any misunderstanding. Thanks Stanley
  3. Hi carl123, thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, through trial and error I have come to the conclusion that the curves adjustment is different to advanced blending of channels (being able to turn of one, two or all channels on EACH layer/being able to apply channels to layers). Please see this thread for exactly what I tried to do, using Curves and Channel mixers: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/46110-advanced-blending-of-channels-isolating-channels-on-layers/ In the end I realised I could not duplicate a Photoshop tutorial hence my +1 for this request. Please also see this thread for more on applying channels to layers: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/11258-please-help-things-i-cannot-do-with-affinity-photo Here is Photoshop's Advanced Blending screen (including channels). You get to it by double clicking on a layer. Something like this in Affinity would be perfect. I love using Affinity Photo on my iPad Pro, but I really miss the advanced blending of channels from Photoshop. Here's hoping Affinity include it in a future release.
  4. Hi @yusha, Thank you for taking the time to reply. Unfortunately using the channel mixer and the Gaussian blur on the blue channel/layer gives a yellow tint to that layer - exactly like the third time I tried, as described above. Photoshop has advanced blending modes where you can select each channel on and off for each layer (so you can have either one, two or three channels selected in one layer. Please see the attachment for what this looks like. It seems to be missing from Affinity Photo, as I cannot recreate the second Photoshop tutorial in Affinity Photo (from above). Photoshop has Curves and a Channel mixer too, however they also have advanced blending of channels, which seem to do different things. Thanks again yusha. Ps Here are a couple of other threads on this forum that are talking about the same thing. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/40955-channel-filtering-in-blend-ranges https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/11258-please-help-things-i-cannot-do-with-affinity-photo
  5. Hi Stanley, thank you for your reply and suggestion. I was able to make a composite image from all three different channel greyscale layers and then apply the curves adjustment to create a full colour composite, true to the original image. I'm trying to recreate this (from Photoshop) in Affinity Photo: http://photography-jobs.net/members/photoshop-tutorial.php?page=Facial-Retouching I followed the tutorial and created a duplicate background layer. I then added a curves adjustment so I could see the blue channel only on this duplicate layer. When I added a Gaussian blur to this blue layer it gave me a blue tint. So this obviously wasn't the right way to do it. Next, starting over with just the original image, I created a greyscale layer from the blue channel, added a Gaussian blur to this greyscale blue layer, and shuffled through all of the different blend modes. None gave me original picture, just with a blur attached to the blue layer/channel. Third time, starting over, I created three greyscale layers; red, green and blue, from the original colour image. I then added a curves adjustment to each layer, so each layer would represent either red, green or blue. Everything is fine so far, the composite greyscale layers with curves adjustment look just like the original image when using the "lighten" blend mode. I then added a Gaussian blur to the blue layer (as the tutorial states to do) however it tinted the blue layer with yellow. I'm not sure it is possible to recreate this with Affinity Photo. Can anyone please help?
  6. I just discovered the Curves adjustment, which seems to isolate channels on layers. Looks like my problem is solved.
  7. I've been looking all through Affinity Photo for Ipad and I can't find a way to isolate channels on one layer only. Here's an example of what I want to do, done in Photoshop (double exposure): https://www.graphicadi.com/create-double-color-exposure-effect In Photoshop there are advanced blending modes where you can select which channels are visible on each layer. So you can have the red and green channels visible on one layer but not the blue, and so on. Please note the blend mode selected in the example is "Normal". I'm looking for information on isolating channels, not blend modes. Is there the ability to isolate channels on each layer available in Affinity Photo? Thank you.
  8. Hello, Just got Affinity Photo for iPad. Great app, thank you very much. I was wondering if there was any plans to create a Wave distortion filter, like Adobe Photoshop has. You can see an example of the Photoshop Wave filter in action right here: https://youtu.be/1CcdLwCRuQ0 You can create really cool glitch effects with this Photoshop filter. As a creator of glitch art I would love to see this added to Affinity Photo. I also think it would bring a lot of new users to Affinity Photo. Thank you.
