  1. I use Color balance adjustment a lot because I do a lot of film scanning and this is the best tool for getting rid of color casts. It only has a missing feature: the ability to affect all tonal ranges. I would just add in the tonal range menĂ¹ a new option "All tonal ranges". Silverfast have this and it is great to correct color casts that spread on the full tonal range. Hope this could be implemented!
  2. Hi Gabe, not exactly. What I'm saying is that there is no way to view an image at pixel size (1 pixel in the image = 1 pixel in the monitor) if you are using a resolution different from the native resolution of the monitor or Retina resolution (half the resolution of the native)
  3. Hi, I'm trying to understand how the "Pixel Size" view command works on a high resolution monitor. Seems to work as expected only on some circumstances. I'm working on a Mac with a 27'' monitor that has a native resolution of 3840 x 2160. If I set the monitor to that resolution everything is ok: when I set the view to Pixel Size the image is displayed at the right magnification, so that 1 pixel in the image = 1 (physical) pixel in the monitor The same is happening if I set the resolution to the standard "retina" resolution of 1920X1080. Everything is ok. Things get tricky if I use the logical resolution of 2560 X 1440 (that is what I am usually using because it is the more natural on a 27'' monitor). Now if I set view to Pixel Size, the image is not pixel size anymore, but it is smaller. I have to set the zoom to about 120% to have a similar magnification, but I'm not sure that is exactly the same (in fact the image is not as sharper) maybe I'm not getting it, but I suppose that the command "pixel size" view should always work in the same way, despite the resolution setting at OS level, that is: showing the image at the appropriate magnification to get 1 pixel in the image = 1 pixel in the monitor. this is critical to make adjustments to the image such as sharpening or grain mitigation
  4. I drop in just to tell that I have the same exact problem on Mac osx. I've scanned a 16bit grayscale 35mm film with Silverfast and Affinity treats it as a RAW file, no problem opening it with Preview. So the problem is not Vuescan, it is the same with Silverfast
  5. Hello, I understand that at the moment it is not possibile to choose rendering intent in the print dialogue. But I'd like to know which one is used by default to be able to soft proofing correctly. Also: is black point compensation on? Thx
  6. Thanks MEB for the feedback. Hope it will be implemented. It would be great for correcting color cast of film scans, thanks to the ability to add more points or a rectangle.
  7. Ok so maybe I'm using the wrong tool (but I think it is the right one, just not working as expected) My intent is to get rid of color casts of scanned films. Usually this is done by using some kind of tool that has two slider: one for blu/yellow axis and one for green/magenta axis. Some more advanced tool also have a picker that helps you doing this automatically. You pick what you think it should be a neutral grey area and the two slider get adjusted. Apple photo has such tool and it works quite good. Some even more advanced tool allows you to choose more than one points and the tool average them to have a better global color cast correction. Silverfast have this kind of tool and it works great but you can only use during scans and not after. Is there a more appropriate tool in Affinity to do this job?
  8. I'm not sure this is a bug or an intended behavior, but the picker of the White Balance Adjustment works only with the "white balance" slider (blu to yellow), not with the "tint" slider (magenta to green). I've tried with many photos in many different area, but I've never been able to correct also the Tint, just the White Balance, when in many case was obvious that there was a green or magenta tint. Would be very useful for correcting film scans, that often have this problem I'm using a Mac with 10.13.6 and Affinity Photo 1.6.7
  9. I don't know if it is a bug or an intended behavior... but I will post it, thanks
  10. Thanks I've seen that. but it works only with the "white balance" slider (blu to yellow), not with the "tint" slider (magenta to green). with film scans it is quite common to have problems also in this area. Being the picker under both the slider one would assume that it will set both, but this is not the case
  11. Hi, I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to make color picker in White Balance Adjustement working in the way I want. I scan lots of negatives and white balance is really important and not easy to achieve. not only in the blue/yellow axis but also on the magenta/green axis. the color picker could be a great help for that, in particular the possibility to add average multiple whitepoints. I do scan with Silverfast and this software has a tool that works just like that: you sample up to 4 points and you get average white balance on all the color axis. but sometimes I need to do this task after the scan has been made. But from what I see, the Affinity Photo color picker works just for blue/yellow but not for magenta/green. that is a big limitation. In apple photos there is a similar function and it works also for magenta/green. but you can choose only one point and that is usually not enough. a workaround could be to use the info pane and LAB values and do it manually, but there is another problem: the Info Pane Sampler gives values for just one pixel, you can't average 3X3 or larger areas, making useless for this purpose. any solutions? thanks
  12. yes to both I've found that this problem seems to happen when printing file opened from Apple Photo with the command "open in..." If I export the photo from apple photo and then open it with affinity I have no problems
  13. If I try to print to my Canon MG7000 series I always get the spinning ball. Cannot print at all. The printing dialog opens up, I can change some parameters, but after a while the spinning ball arrives and I have to force quite the application . Also tried last beta but it is the same. printing drivers are printer connected via LAN
  14. I saw lots of affinity tutorial that has a "filter menu", but I really don't have it in my trial version (1.6.0 for Mac) also I cannot find new live layer command and/or Unsharp mask maybe it is something obvious, you move it somewhere... can you point me to the new location? thanks
