  1. More of a question. One way of creating an artificial studio background with a light effect is to make a backdrop, draw a circle or ellipse and run a guassian blur (usually maxing the setting). However compared to photoshop Photos guassian blur is nowhere near strong enough to look realistic. Is there another way to achieve this ?

    Feedback on bugs from developers

    @Chris B @Mark Ingram appreciate the feedback fellas
  3. @Chris B really enjoy the beta part of the affinity forum and its awesome how quickly the QA team are responsive to issues. Was wondering if possible, when issues are logged or queries made with the developers we could see the outcome of the conversation. Just to complete the bug report loop. Keep up the great work

    Release date estimation

    When it arrives, I'm expecting the next iteration to have some pretty sweet fixes - the lads are doing a great job. Its actually very cool, and unique that us as users can interact with the actual developers. Thumbs up guys & gals.

    Workflow, and again workflow

    For what its worth.....I find using On1 Photo Raw for raw processing and other Lightroom type functions then exporting off to Affinity Photo for editing (I do fashion and fitness photography) to be a winning combination. My only gotcha is Portraiture 3 - doesnt play nicely with Photo.
  6. Hey guys. Tried out the new beta with Imagenomic Portraiture 2. Great to see that Photo passes through accurate color information to this app now. Well done. Hope that we eventually get Photo to play nicely (or vice versa) with Portaiture 3 - this is the version that causes the photo from AF Photo to look like a mosiac. Keep up the great work

    Color profile changing to yellow

    I'm getting similar issues, but with exporting JPGs out of the latest version of Photo on Win10 - with a Spyder 5 Express Calibrated Dell U2415 Monitor. Used to have no problems shooting in Adobe RGB, then editing in LR and PS Elements in Adobe RGB then a final export to jpg in SRGB (for clients) but unfortunately with using Affinity Photo I'm getting red tinges to exports. So theres either an issue with the software or Im doing something completely wrong (like to think I'm reasonably competant). If I'm setting up Photo wrong - perhaps a bit more work on the help documentation needs to occur to aid people with hardware calibrated monitors to set things up correctly
  9. @firstdefence I perfer the wider gamut of Adobe RGB which is why my camera and subsequently On1 Raw + Affinity Photo all use this setting. The only reason for the final conversion is that when I provide digital images to clients. When I convert for web publishing or social media I use png as an export via Affinity and the colouring is spot on, its only jpg exporting that for me at least is finiky. I guess if theres no way around I'll just need export client shots in On1 instead which, while not the end of the world, is an additional step. When viewing the images side by side in affinity and on1 they all match so it doesnt appear to be any file generation issues. The strangest thing for me is that this is happening when it hasnt previously with others software - case in point exporting via Photoshop Elements (before I left adobe) was perfect.
  10. to avoid any possible issue with two profiles being presented I've deleted the unused one, rebooted the pc to ensure the profile loads correctly and have retried an export. The left is On1s export opened in Win10 Photos the right version is the equivalent Affinity Photo SRGB export. I think that rules out any ICC clashes
  11. @walt.farrell as mentioned above the image, its the spyder 5 icc profile. You can choose the name for the profile and I elected to keep the dell U2415 name of my adapter
  12. @DWright this is my profile, ignoring the dell filename its a datacolor Spyder 5 Express generated profile
  13. hi @DWright has anything further happened with this or is it unable to be replicated and hence closed off ?
  14. @Roger C nothing back from Affinity officially yet. I had a play with another image and exported it twice out of Photo. - One exported as Adobe RGB, the other as SRGB. The Adobe version looks more like the original when viewed through Windows 10 photo viewer, the SRGB again still exhibits the redness. The kicker is that when I load the SRGB version back into Photo it looks correct, and some people on other windows forums have indicated that it could be an issue with Windows 10 apps not acknowledging ICC profiles, and the effect is more prevalent on wide gamut monitors. The strange thing is that On1 Photo Raw's exporting of a SRGB JPG doesnt have this issue, I realise that different programs do things differently to get the same result but it does seem a drastic difference. That leads me on to another question.......if one supplys images to clients as jpg files who wont necessarily be using a calibrated system and may be using Windows 10. How should we export files to ensure they receive what we as photographers see
  15. Sure, via the forum or an email address
