scoda reacted to JLARM in First Photo in Affinity Photo release
This is my first photo from the new release of Affinity Photo.
For those who might be interested, the photo is from a RAW file opened in AP, slightly adjusted and then developed.
The image was then exported out of AP in 3x which resulted in a 219 MB PNG file with the image at approx 48 x 36 inches with a resolution of 288 ppi.
I then squished it down to upload to the forum. The image is a macro photo of a small agate stone that has been cut and polished.
Affinity Photo handled the whole thing like a trooper. No hesitation, no slowness, no fuss, no bother. I really like this program.
Since I have zero experience or talent in this area, I am really pleased at the result. Thank you guys at Serif. Nice job !

There are some people here, who would spend their hours colouring this in, with their kids.
Now that colouring-in-books for adults are hitting the shelves. I think know that you are onto something here. Print it out and see how parents and kids react. This could be the start of something really special.

So, Diving into some Affinity Photo. I had a Couple of hiccups, but I am enjoying Affinity Photo so far. Still working this one out, but I am at a stopping point, so I figure I would share what I have so far. Stock Photograph model credit to Fae : http://faestock.deviantart.com/
scoda reacted to penwiper in orchid and stag beetle
So I worked on this orchid tonight for about 3 hours and I am extremely happy with how it turned out! :-) I might put some bitmap texture in the light area of the background, but I'm sitting on that for now until I am sure.
As for my other image, that was last night's practice with Affinity and I am not as sure about it. I love the shape of the beetle, but I'm not sure about the portrait on its back anymore. I am relatively happy with the background, but again, I'm still thinking about that one!
So, if you have comments or suggestions please let me know.
scoda got a reaction from MattP in Mustang GT Drag Racing RAW NEF Import
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:

So I had to deal with the urgency of this double character design for an e-learning game.
I used AD to refine the blue pencil sketch.
Traced and refined shapes
And now I'm searching for values that work
Soon full colour version!
Much faster than in AI days...
