  1. Thank You! So many responses, lots to try out. I'll be giving your suggestion a try. Thanks again.
  2. To All, THANK YOU! Attached is a png export (so that I'm not sending a 16Mb file). Not great, but will serve the purpose (part of a book on home buying). In it's current state, it gives me the focus I like, bright to the front with retained texture, ranging to the rear which is most shadows, with mid-lighting between. Thanks to all again.
  3. Thank you! It's all a learning curve. Asked one question and learned a half-dozen things I hadn't known. (I'll have to do this more often....) I think I found an issue that I created, oh well. I'll give your method a try of course. Thanks again.
  4. Thank you! Being still quite new, I understand the broad view of what you sent. Just hazy on the specific steps in the nesting them inside the (refined) highlights selection. You certainly nailed it. Any chance you can provide the URL to a video of the step-by-step? Thanks again.
  5. Indeed, very helpful! Due to your choice of verbiage, I actually found my issue by fiddling with some of the adjustment layers I had produced. (In this case, "less is greater than more".) It's an example of implementation of multi-variable calculus.... The video is a bit above my pay grade; but I was due a promotion. Thanks again.
  6. Thank You for the Extremely FAST response. Will give it a run. Thanks again!
  7. I'm still learning. I have an image of some landscaping boulders, see attachment. As you can see, the sunlight reflects quite brightly on them; far too much for the shot. What is a way(s) to correct just the rocks or area of the rocks without effecting the rest of the image? The problem probably started with how I photographed the shot, but it was the only angle that would work, and the time of day was not of my making. (The image is a jpeg, simply because the file size of the afp file is far too large to send along. I want to do the work in Photo, so assume any instruction offered will be done as such.) If there is an accurate YouTube or similar video, it works for me. Thanks in advance.
  8. You stated, "Another method would be to create rectangles at either edge, add an fx: gaussian blur and change the layer blend mode of the rectangles to Erase. " It appears you have compounded rectangles. Could you please give a more detailed explanation of what you did? Thank you.
  9. Thanks. I sincerely appreciate the help from all of you. It definitely helps set the direction, confirm or eliminate paths of logic, and shorten the time.
  10. How do we get this recorded into the affinity support section??
  11. Believe it or not, I found it. It’s in the Malwarebytes Browser Guard, v.2.2.0, last updated 3/6/2020 from Malwarebytes.com website. After disabling it, the dl worked. That little extension is going bye-bye.... Thanks to everyone.
  12. Someone want to tell me how after uninstalling MW, rebooting, scrubbing the Win10Pro registry, rebooting, I still get the Malwarebytes download warning/stop page??? Something smell ripe in this garden.....
  13. Interestingly enough, also have a similar dl problem using appsumo.com Appears they use another dl service which employs very long URLs to the specific downloads. That service appears to be klclick.com. Too obvious that both are long URLs.
  14. Yes, was considering it. If I do, I'll scrub the registry as well before re-installing. Giving MW a few more hours to see if they come up with anything. All has gone well with it for months. Have dl'ed earlier Affinity updates no problems. Makes me wonder if there's a variable I'm just not aware of; and if so, why now? Thanks
