  1. Same issue happens on my notebook (Surface Pro 4), no problem on my pc.
  2. I've already asked for this feature here, a long time ago...White, grey and black picker for color balance - Feedback for Affinity Photo on Desktop - Affinity | Forum (serif.com)
  3. I've used Affinity Photo 1.9 beta to try to correct this photo, I've attached the .aphoto file so you can follow all the passages I've made. slides-20210102_0055.thumb.jpg.45e4e4f970ca945e9a8f67167d5b24e3.afphoto
  4. What do you think regarding the size, better small or medium? Looking at the space available on my desk I would say better a small one but maybe I'm wrong.
  5. Hi firstdefence and thank you for your answer, I knew already what pen tilt is, but I don't understand if it is needed/useful for a better work (hair retouching, healing, masking, etc.) or not; now while after reading the article you linked me I know that in some cases (designer) tilt pen could be a disadvantage, at the same time I didn't learn anything new regarding tilt pen advantages in photo editing to remove my doubts/hesitation.
  6. Hi all, I'm going to buy my first pen tablet for Aphoto that I'll be using only for photo retouching (not drawing); I already googled a lot but it's not clear to me if pen tilt support will be useful or not. Any suggestions to help me are welcome. Tks in advance
  7. XnView MP (https://www.xnview.com/en/xnviewmp/) supports .aphoto files if enabled under tools/settings/general/show all graphic files. Hope it helps
  8. You can take a look at Xnview MP (freeware); it recognizes .aphoto files but this "ability" is not enabled by default. Open Xnview MP and go to tools/settings/general/show all graphic formats. Hope it helps
  9. Hi Granddaddy and tks for your answer, I also fear this is something that will hardly be fixed, but yesterday I received an email from Serif (pls read the last post from Patrick Connor at the link below), so I decided to reopen the discussion. Regarding the size of the exported jpeg, AP was set at quality 100%. Thank you again for your detailed explanations.
  10. This is an old "issue" started with version 1.7 and never solved: working with jpeg files the file size has become 3 times bigger compared to when saved in .aphoto format and about 2/3 bigger when exported in jpeg (even if you just open the photo and save or export it untouched). Here are the previous threads' links related to this issue and a screenshot I made today using
  11. You can take a look at this program: https://tabletpro.com/ and maybe you'll find what you need
  12. To scan negatives/positive films you need to have a dedicated film scanner (nowadays there aren't many models on the market: I think Plustek is the only remaining manufacter) or a flatbed scanner with the option to scan also films; I'm using an old Epson Perfection V330 Photo and the quality of the scanned negatives/positives is good. The corrisponding upgraded model you can buy today is the Perfection V370 Photo if you don't want to spend a lot; with this model you can scan 4 mounted positives or 6 negatives in one scanning operation; keep in mind that if you want to achive the maximum quality from your negatives (4800dpi with my scanner) it will take a long time to scan them (a single photo/negative is about 2 minutes scan, and before scanning you have to visually check and eventually clean the negative from the dust (not an easy task). Hope it helps
  13. I tried with another notebook (Alienware) both with the integrated and an external keyboard and the issue is not present, but maybe I don't understand which is your procedure; normally I use my mouse to point the choice when closing a document but I tried this: ctrl+w to close and then tab (if you press it again you change the choice) then enter.
  14. I have no issue with the keyboard (Surface Pro 4), everything's working as expected.
  15. regedit, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Serif\Affinity\Photo\1 (new dword 32) No Update Check=dword:00000001
  16. Hi Walt and tks for your answer, I asked for a similar feature about 2 years ago as I need not 2 but 3 droppers (white, grey and black) to easily correct color cast on scanned positive films; your suggestion is welcome and useful (I didn't know this method) and I think it could be a good workaround for marciomendonsa; anyway it would be very useful having the 3 eyedroppers under level adj. This is my old request:
  17. Problem solved, the brushes localisation is now correct after a few restart of the program. Tks
  18. Hi all, with the program set to italian Language the list (names) of the brushes still remains untranslated, as you can see in the attached pictures. Tks for correcting the missing translation of the "new document layout" found in beta as you can see here:
