  1. Ok so my mum asked me to fix some photo's to put into new frames on her photo wall. They had all been trimmed in the past to fit oval place holders. One of the photos had a face obscured by a shadow......here we go. 1. The shadow of a tree is blocking my face (one on the left). I duplicated the layer, removed everything except my face from the new layer. Brightened the layer a lot, and the blended it into the base layer. 2. With this one i needed to fill in the blank areas and restore the photo. The clone tool was used to fill the edges, and i adjusted the contrast. I could have used the clone tool to repair the scratches but went to Snapheal for speed. Back to affinity photo and i used layers and the selection brush tool to fill areas with some colour. These were then blended using Multiply and an opacity of around 20-30% .....with more time i would have tidied things up a bit, oh the joys of a paid job and kids to keep me busy.
  2. Ok so i imported a RAW photo with lots of noise from my Nikon D3300. Touched up the White balance, Highlights and Shadows. Applied some extreme DeNoise Then Applied Sharpening Developing took a couple of minutes and seemed to hang my 2011 MBP with the colour wheel. Bearing in mind i have 16Gb of RAM and i'm running on a Kingston SSD drive. The photo however was stored on an external thunderbolt drive. Everything else was very fluid and responsive. Uncompressed the resulting JPEG was 22meg, at 90% the resulting JPEG is just over 3meg. Both images have been cropped from the original due to it's rather large dimensions :unsure:
  3. Hi I'm David from Liverpool, UK. Currently living and working in Abu Dhabi, in the field of security. I don't have anything to do with Graphic Design, i'm not a particularly artistic person....i have my moments. But i do like testing my creative abilities in my spare time and i'm a keen photographer (when i get the chance). Anyway "Hello" and i'm just here for the fun (and cake, someone said there was cake!.....Wheres the cake!) :D
