    PlugIn Support

    Yah I looked at that too, but it appears Affinity is not yet on board with full support. Please staff, correct me if I am mistaken. Both DXO and Alien Skin could be a great plug-in for Affinity. Any news?

    Photo to Painting

    Actually, unless one is painting for themselves or painting a commission, in using comparisons between photo software for painterly effects, vs a painting done by hand with an artist, the differentiation are sometime obvious, and sometimes not as obvious. But in the end neither talent really matters to the buyer, since they are buying what pleases their eye. Mind you I am not suggesting this example of mine will please your eye, but it has pleased other's which has resulted in sales for me.

    Lens Profiles Not Opening as in Video

    I will try again, thanks
  4. In the Video 'Lens Corrections Enhancements', James at 1:55 shows how to get to a new lens correction after downling from github, however mine is not opening the same window at 2:09-2:13. What my windows desktop does is merely open a File Explorer window titled 'Lens Profile' but rather than showing any lens profiles, it only highlights under the This PC tree, the 'Local Disk' which when I click it then opens a series of file folders, 'Programs Data' which is highlighted. Double click that file folder and select 'Affinity' where I see three choices of file folders, Common, Photo and Publisher. Double click Photos reveals 1.0, double click that reveals Lens Profiles, which reveals "The folder is empty" I suspect that when I last updated Windows 10 v1809 the Lens Profiles were not updated. Any thoughts?

    Affinity Photo

    I am currently using The little popup window showed up when I opened Affinity Photo, informing me of the new version. I tried to click on 'Download' but not an active exe, so I clicked on 'OK' and notihing happened for me either.

    Affinity Photo + Bridge

    Open Bridhe, Open Folder, Choose Photo, R-click to Open with......Affinity Photo, ooops not highlighted. Can't do. So Adobe has coded that possibility out so it won't work with Affinity. Is that what we all know? Or is there a workaround, other than unsing the Windows File Explorer?
  9. Thanks Walt, after taking a second look, it was as simple as one could design it to be, got it now, thanks
  10. Could we get a sticky on new version install instructions....??? Sorry if I've missed it.

    Somewhere buried in this upgrade are the instructions for upgrading. If not can I get the steps? Thanks

    View> Rotate is Hard Set?

    carl123, thanks. So after going to View>Guides Manager>Add Horizontal Guide @ 50%, I am presented with a blue horizontal line, but the Control+Up/Down arrows accomplish no movement. Also, when selecting the Transform tab, nothing is highlighted. Also when using the Rotate control, the entire canvas rotates, and still the Transform tab is not highlighted. Any followup to my inaccurate workflow?

    View> Rotate is Hard Set?

    Thanks R C-R, I've tried it and its kind of clunky, but it'll have to do until it can be refined so that the tool (level tool) can be multi-applied, without have to keep clicking on the Level Button eaach and every time. Thanks for your help
  14. How do I achieve a color within a black & white in Affinity? I have tried the Selection Brush choosing the parts I wish to apply that adjustment to, but I am not getting a very sharp finish. Update: I have discovered the video, and just as I suspected, it is with the use of the Selection brush, but the tips I got from the following video makes it more manageable using the brush. Very helpful:
  15. Very simply put, I'd like to choose how many degrees I need to rotate left or right, rather than having the action hard set to a fixed amount. Is that possible. I've looked at Edit> Preferences and can't find that option. In this particular image I am attempting to level the horizon in the background.
