    White balance doesn't work correctly

    I like the Essentials results, so can I easily or by macro replicate in AP the results I used to get in eg Essentials 14 using the colour pickers in Levels? I find AP very frustrating in this respect, and really don't care if the tools work as intended or indeed "correctly".

    White balance doesn't work correctly

    Without intending to create any controversy, I too find the Elements 14 white balance correction, via levels, much more effective than Afinity Photo's, but overall it's "no contest" in favour of AP IMO.
  3. Thank you, that does it. But a shame no colour pickers on the (various) dialogues.
  4. Is there an easy way to select a colour range to which to apply HSL adjustments in a photo. I can't find a colour picker in the HSL dialogue.
  5. I'm assuming liquefy is the way to go, but how to make this stomach svelt Totally unsuccessful when trying it myself.

    Is there a magnetic lasso

    Another vote of thanks for this tip It is in the help file, but searching for lasso doesn't work; magnetic or polygonal will.
  7. Wow, thanks. I'll print this to pdf and go through it again (and possibly again and again ). Very interesting.
  8. Can somebody please explain what the blend mode route does? I can duplicate the effect of course, but I would like to understand it to recognise when I can use it. My instinct would have been flood select & delete, but the results are interestingly different.
  9. Wouldn't it be better to have separate Forums for each app? I use Photo and have no interest in Designer, and it can be confusing as it is not always clear what is being referred to.

    Mesh Warp under Windows 10

    Wish I had known this earlier! It is in the help file, but NOT with the Mesh Warp Tool "Overview and Settings", but under Mesh Warping. Why? Seems to me that the two shoud be combined. And I see I can double-click anywhere in the image for additional points.

    PSE Recompose tool

    Thank you for the video, but the PSE Recompose tool is about much more, and is much more sophisticated in use, than simply stretching the background. Sometimes it can be a bit of magic. But as I said I only use it rarely; like I wanted to today
  13. Is there an equivalent of the PSE recompose tool in Affinity Photo? I use it rarely, but it can be useful. A search here didn't come up with anything.
