    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?
  2. Thanks Walt, after taking a second look, it was as simple as one could design it to be, got it now, thanks
  3. Could we get a sticky on new version install instructions....??? Sorry if I've missed it.

    Affinity Photo for Windows - 1.6.5

    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
  7. 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:
  8. 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.

    Top to Bottom stacking 3 images How To?

    John and Lee, you may be right, even though you cannot see but the top two images. The very bottom is even less contrasty, less detailed, less focused. I was just trying from photos as a practice. I'll take another run at it with better focus, thanks very much.
  10. I have a shot of a waterfall, zoomed to 3 separate images. When I File>New Panorama, the 3 images are shortened so as not to include the bottom of the waterfall. Is there an image size limitation? I am not worried yet about anything picture quality just yet.

    Free Content included with 1.6 ('Till 16th November)

    This is another full download, 280MB, which overwrite the original or is it a total of almost 600MB's? AND as a second question, is an uninstall the original version first> So will I have to live with two full versions? And is an uninstall necessary?
  12. octavian thanks for the links, and while the OP has perhaps haad his answer, I have a follow up question, which is open to anyone; In order to add a brush for a watermark once finished, does that watermark have to be created in AD, that is, Affinity Designer?
  13. Very helpful JFisher, I just tried it and it works well.

    Halloween Ghost

    carl123, maybe I'll give that a try. I was only attempting to learn the technique, but appreciate your input and am hoping you cover your vehicle with a tarp or car cover, while your infrared cameras are filming. Ok so here's a much reduced exposure layers without resizing the ghost figure just experimenting on the overall and the ghost figure's lighting

    Cutting Out Example but Pixelated

    carl123, using your steps, here is the results. Mind you I have not spent any time retouching to remove the area between the rear feet, or the weeds at the neck, which the the Selection Brush always seems to grab. In this copy&paste and move the original building image remains at original size and the deer was C&P then moved and selected and reduced to fit.
