  1. Hey All Thanks for the input. Thought you'd all like to see the final result. Taken with my Note 10+ phone.
  2. That looks like it's working. What I did with the B&W Adjustment is push the reds and yellows to 200% to wash out the underlying color. Then selected a color with the Multiply blend mode. Also created a file with just the colors being considered. It helps but the monitor colors never do match the paint chip samples we get. I guess that's just the difference between on screen vs print / paint!
  3. Nice approaches. I'll give these a try. Thanks!
  4. I wasn't sure how to search for this topic... so started a new one. Pointers to existing topics are welcome! Is there a way for AP to try out color choices for exterior house painting? I've separated out the main body, trim, garage doors, and front door. Then used the color palette from the paint vendor imported to swatches. I created a fill layer for a color and made it a child of one of the segments then set the fills blend mode to "color". It "seems" like that should work but not sure I'm getting the correct rendering of the colors.Suggestions?! Help please! _HouseRendering.afphoto
  5. Ok... I reset the Develop Assistant: Raw Output format to RGB 16 bit. I probably left it on 32 bit HDR when doing some HDR processing. Lately I've been doing raw convert to a 16 bit tif file (not with Affinity) and then use AP for processing. That should be 16 bit... correct?
  6. @Gabe That has been my default... Just going for max resolution & colors. I'll try 16 bit for this workflow since I'm doing a more artsy look in the end. Will see if I get to print if it loses something using 16 bit. Thanks
  7. Got it. Files uploaded. Also included the raw file (NEF) if you want to follow the steps from that point.
  8. I'm attaching several afphoto files that have "history" turned on so you can see the steps used in the Photo persona. Two where the problem didn't occur and one (_1985273.DidRotate.afphoto) where it did occur. The only difference is that I used one of the corner crop handles to rotate the crop and straighten the top of the fence. The _1985273.1stTime.afphoto file is the final result I was going for just as reference. The remainder of my time was spent just trying to reproduce the edge detection issue. Prior RAW develop: +3 Ev, +15% brightness, -55% highlights I couldn't send the raw file as it was over the upload limit. _1985273.1stTime.afphoto _1985273.DidRotate.afphoto _1985273.NoRotate.afphoto
  9. After using edge detection a few times... it eventually fails with some bizzare results. See attached photo. It worked previously but to get it to work again, I had to restart Affinity and re-process the photo. (AP
  10. Any lens profile for the "Tamron 18-400mm F3.5-6.3 Di II VC HLD"? This has been my walk-around lens for the last year and would appreciate any update supporting this lens. (didn't fine it when adding the slr-tamron.xml file to the lens profile directory from lensfun) Thanks
  11. Can Affinity Photo use the Photomatix Pro LR plugin? https://www.hdrsoft.com/support/faq_lrplugin.html#install_location I added the directory to the list of plugins and after restart couldn't find what changed.
  12. Since I noticed that when DxO installed the Nik plugins, it un-installed the Google version. So could I re-install Google Nik and add just the HDR Efex plugin from Google Nik? I tried pointing to that directory only (with DxO already installed) but it didn't do anything.
