  1. Ah......the usual mistake EXPORT and not save as.....got it now thanks
  2. Understood. But does not saving as a new and seperate affinity file now make it an Affinity template file?
  3. I downloaded some greeting card templates in PSD (photoshop).format to a new folder on my PC. When I added this folder in the presets and templates and selected the folder no templates showed. So I opened each template as .PSD in APhoto no problem then saved as AFphoto extension to a folder. But the same thing happens. Does this mean A photo doesn't show a preview of the template and you have to open the folder in windows explorer then open each one in the main window to get a preview?
  4. I say you've done really good job and as I've played with various restoration photos I know how much time and patience it can take so award yourself a pat on the back!
  5. Ta - Dahhhhh......and there it is......well done for spotting that. Many thanks
  6. Not sure where to post this but can anyone explain the setting in Firefox that allows Pictures to be shown....only seems to be on the Affinity Potlight web pages. The links are blank and clicking on them just shows another blank I've included screenshot of what I see. Using Edge browser there is no prblem so it must be a Firefox setting somewhere but for all my googling and altering permissions etc I cant get it to work
  7. trying to follow this photoshop tutorial for motion blur https://www.ephotozine.com/article/how-to-create-motion-blur-in-photoshop-13112 but have got lost when it comes to adding a gradient as in step 8. How do I get one side transparent? in Affinity photo setting slider to black/white points I'm just in a muddle. must be something simple I'm missing?
  8. My mind's gone blank this afternoon....maybe the heat....This clip art pic of sheep I want to change round so that the white sheep are black and the black sheep is white. The only way I can do it it is select the white sheep with selection tool (tedious) then paint over with black but is doesn't look right and I thought there was a sort of one click flood change colour in AP but I'm lost Any suggestions please?
  9. That explains it then. Thanks. I need to use AP more often to understand it better
  10. Confused and cant do it so I'll have to ask for help. I make a selection from an image - say a cut out of a person. OK got the marching ants. From the Select Menu drop down ..save selection to file, dialogue box pops up and I name it and save it in a folder "person.afselection file" Open a new image say like a garden picture intending to paste the cut out of the person in a position. What I get is just an outline of marching ants and if I select move tool it leaves a cut out of the shape of the person. Now I know I can save the original selection as a new layer then copy and paste that into my garden pic but that seems long winded and I want to use the original selection in various other backgrounds over time. Reading the help file I thought saving the selection ....well......"saved the selection" for use at any time? I'm not understanding this at all help or a few pointers would be appreciated
  11. Complicated. but something to play around with so many thanks for the pointer to a way of achieving better result
  12. Having a go at colouring an old Black and White photo of poor quality I realise. I scanned the original as a Tiff file then converted to RGB 8 bit in AFphoto then played. Using example tutorials as guidance and using adjustment layers ("recolour" and playing with sliders then inverting layer and painting out bits as a mask, or directly painting on a new pixel layer and trying different blend modes etc.) Fairly happy with results. So my question is...... is there a way to get the brick wall mortar joints to a seperate whiter/grey colour? as you can see the red/brown effect for the bricks is in the joints also and I would like them to be more natural? Any hints tips appreciated
