    RAW File Codecs

    I was getting really excited about Affinity Photo, until I tried to develop some RAW images... the shadow recovery gives very bad results. Edit: I did a search and I've seen a lot of people complaining about this. This should be the no1 problem to be fixed in my opinion. I know the team is aware of this and working on it and I hope it will be fixed in the 1.6 version. This is a big issue that is holding back many people switching from Adobe.
  2. I know that you can attach Curves and Levels adjustments to masks and set their target channel to Alpha instead of Master. This is great feature that allows us to change a mask non-destructively, but we should be able to attach all adjustments and filters to a mask as if the mask was a regular grayscale pixel layer. Also currently in order to attach Curves or Level adjustments to a mask you have to create it and attach it manually to the mask. Would be nice to be able to select the the mask - add the adjustment layer (or live filter) and have it link automatically to the mask. Hope all this makes sense. Cheers!
  3. Would be great, after you Alt+click on the mask to see it, to be able to Alt+click again on it to come out (instead of clicking on another layer or pressing Esc)

    Adding noise to layer masks

    It would be amazing to have that functionality in a future version of Affinity Photo. (Curves and Levels work great this way, we just need the rest of adjustments and filters to work in the same way). A small note regarding layer masks: would be great, after you Alt+click on the mask to see it, to be able to Alt+click again on it to come out (instead of clicking on another layer or pressing Esc) (I guess I'm just used to the 'Photoshop way' and it's hard to break the habit)

    Adding noise to layer masks

    I did try it and it dosen't work. The Mask Layer get's applied to the noise, instead of the other way. I want the noise to be applied on the mask. In the method shown by @DWright the noise affects the layer underneath (and it get restricted by the mask).

    Adding noise to layer masks

    Thanks for your reply @owenr, this seems to be the only way to do it. It's a shame that you can't apply any filters directly to a mask (like you can in Photoshop).
  7. Hi, is it possible to add noise (destructively or non-destructively) to a layer mask? (this can be helpful to reduce banding when using smooth gradients inside a layer mask, in an 8 bit document). I did try it by selecting the mask and adding a Noise Live Filter Layer (and also adding Filters-Noise-Add Noise) but it didn't seem to work. Thanks!
