  1. Still have some hard time with light and reflections so I tested some new ways on this project. Affinity Designer + Photo + (Nik 3.3 and Luminar 4) I wanted to see what works the best as whole or just in 1 precise aspect of what I want then I decide the way I'll put things together. Let's go! A thumbnail for #OldTechBlocke a YouTuber who does cool #Linux contents 1st you'll see what he made (surely using Gimp 2.10.20/22) 2dn what I came up with (just a bit of reorganization and more colors in there) : Luminar 4 3rd the same design boosted with Nik Collection 3.3 Bless
  2. Just Before I leave for more job and some home stuffs, i'd like to share this other one, also made for a French Linux guy doing good works on YouTube. I'm still not that good at composition and colors but at least this is what was done. Check and revert for me to improve for the good of Design and Photography. Here also, I tested soe other tints variant. Blessings !
  3. Hello Everyone ! Was a bit far from this place but today I wish to share a quick job I made for a friend of mine who's a YouTuber on the Linux side. I made it because his recent video inspired me a lot and I wanted to test something new ... I mean some tints I had in mind. No more comment, time for you to check and choose. Notice I'm currently doing and shipping both lighter and darker tendencies of the same design to my requesters. Blessings !
  4. Hello Everyone Hello Support I'm enjoying the "Create palette from image/from document" functionality for years but always forget to send this suggestion. I believe it will be cool to have button somewhere on a tool that point to that internal tool/function. it is crucial to be able to create palettes from documents and from images, it can save enormous time and effort when one work offline but have some base of stock image that he can sample from but ... this functionality is buried into that hamburger button which make it not easy to find or even to guess it does exist (for new
  5. Okay thank you ! I'm currently running Dx12 on that same config which came after I did my updates so it's not so bad but I noticed that AfPhoto works better (less lags) and even faster when I use the WARP setting so, i'm kind of fine right now even if the release prior to the b.852 was much much reactive and better in terms of resource usage but ... that another story. BTW my card/gpu is a switchable one intel+amd to be more precise. Blessings
  6. Beautiful build but one thing I've noticed that it making use of enormous resources compared to release you shipped before this, which is something a bit frustrative. But I love your works and wait for another one to come so I can compare.
  7. AMD 7670M on this side. Will it work or can I say bye bye to the Hardware Acceleration ?
  8. 1- Non Destructiveness 2- Better and understandable Adjustments 3- More intelligent and Less agressive Tone Mapping filters/functions 4- more comprehensive functions on the develop persona (which here tends to be confusing in regard to what is available on the Develop Persona 5- Save with History to become default (but must allow that function to be disabled if needed) 6- Crop tool shouldn't crop the entire canvas or Art but act like the crop tool in designer or allow for crop on precise layer 7- Affinity Designer is capable of creating both vector and pixel layers why not Affinity
  9. Thank you my friend by ease of use I actually mean the Develop Persona should come closer to what we have in other modern apps like On1 Photo Raw, PhotoLab 4 etc. something that's less technical but opens the door to pure creativity. After all, Photography, Photo-Retouch etc. all that is Art and the guy working with the tools, need to actually be more focus on making their Art better but with ease and not spending like a day for a photo. The recent improvements brought to PS by Adobe have enabled their userbase to do more and much better in less which can be proven by growing amount o
  10. Hello Everyone Hello Team I gladly spent the last few days working on projects and realized how easy and fluid Affinity photo have become but ... yes because can't move forward without a request for improvement. I'd like to notify that the Develop Persona is something quite complicated from noobs perspective which should be revamped and made more intuitive for all levels of knowledges. What's there and the way it works is cool but more for Pro/Skilled people to work with (same case for the Tone mapping persona) to my defense on this, I used Luminar for like every projects I nee
  11. Better choice would be locally then each user can upload to cloud service he already subscribed to
  12. Hello Everyone Hello Team I think it is time to think about bring an internal tool/function that will allow users to backup their full #Designer #Photo #Publisher profile and restore that full backup when needed. I mean, it often happened to me (and I guess to many) to be called on reinstalling my PC (windows actually) and find out I have to redo everything from the very beginning and considering my personal collection of assets, brushes, palettes etc. have i'm an unexpected way over the years ... I'm spending an hour or more to make everything work as expected or just be back like on m
  13. Alors la je ne saurai repondre vue je ne'utilise pas Nik Collection mais la question est interessante, je regarderai et certainement je vous ferai un retour, mais pas avant plusieurs heures vus qu'il est assez tard la ou je vis.
  14. Chez Moi Luminar 4.3.0 (6175) Affinity Photo Actuellement je ne peux pas charger luminar a cause du fait que mon GPU a des soucis mais voila un peu ce que cela donne
  15. Bonjour @Catherine Dessaignes Il faudrait deja commencer par dire quelle version de Affinity photo et aussi quelle version de luminar J'ai eu des problemes similaires mais avec les anciennes versions des 2 apps, les recentes marchent assez bien. Regards
  16. I'm happy with the new release of the Affinity suite but as always ... I'm a beta cycle man, So I feel such boring and would like to know when is next Beta session planed and what's targeted ! Thanks.
  17. +1 on this request. Pattern creation tool/studio is not only important but life and time saving but also will help us create awesome stuffs in less time. the already existing tools are cool and okay but being able to create patterns from object etc. in a dynamic mode is super cool and shift affinity users in higher places. Well all this should be done and made in Serif/Affinity way and not drag'n drop of what already exist on Adobe products.
  18. Definitely this need to happen. i don't how people from Mac are doing but when I make a document with lot's of layers and Fx applied there plus some polishing from APhoto the thing get's laggy and no one said 12GiB of RAM isn't enough The hang mostly happen with APublisher but I suspect if I make massive use of APhoto or ADesigner it will surface so, GPU Acceleration is needed on Windows like ... yesterday ! TBH I like what the Serif team is doing and the way you guys work but think of us needing to stand the Challenge of Un-Adobing our lives and creations. Thanks !
  19. Thanks for your answer. We just agreed to normalize things in the team and not using too different fonts. We just allowed to tweak it a bit but if we talk fedora or lenovo we are granted with their official fonts so we can't do much but stick with official which is a cool thing too. But I take your advice and will try to make things change when an opportunity is shown. Warm Blessings
  20. Hello Everyone ! Was busy and far from this nice place ! not much to say, check on the YouTube thumbnails here, made with the Affinity suite and drop me your comments and advises as always to help me do better. Blessings !
  21. Well I want to make sure before I source that GPU because i'm in such a limited budget lifestyle right now ! Also isn't GPU accelerated thing a good thing to implement on windows ? Affinity look so fast and cool on MacOS with Metal then it does on windows right now and ... there is a need for the second ecosystem to also receive that improvement.
  22. Hi @Sean P are we getting some inputs or updates from the respective teams about diagonal guides ? Affinity is getting seriously deep in so many design companies and for Freelancers this feature is actually needed to help achieving much more. Diagonal guide would actually help me on shape cutting on precise angles and do consistent work, i just guess other people here would agree with me at least on that point.
  23. Hello everyone Hello Support and Dev Team Would like to know if it is planned to make the Dodge and burn tools to also work on mask (of all type). It is sometime very helpful for white fringes removal during when removing BG. Well until then, Blessings y'All !
  24. Hello Everyone ! long time i've been here. Well ! a good friend of mine is planing to ship me with an Nvidia GTX 1060 @6GiB VRam to help me have better experience on using my prefered design software. My actual GPU is GeForce 210 @1GiB VRam and there isn't a real change, well it works but ... Anything i should know about owning that GPU and running Affinity ? i want to make sure of everything or close to everything before it reaches my door. Thanks for helping me understand and improve.
