  1. Just wanted to update that I managed to solve the issue and have gotten the preinstalled presets back by uninstalling and then reinstalling AP. Hope this helps in case anyone else runs into this issue.
  2. I have expanded the categories - notice the different angle of the triangles (http://prntscr.com/s9re3e) , unfortunately the presets themselves are missing, and since the "restore master presets" is grayed out I'm wondering how I can restore them.
  3. (Win, and yes, that's exactly what I' mean. It's just that on my end I don't see any of the presets (http://prntscr.com/s9h62l) , and the option to "restore master presets" is grayed out (http://prntscr.com/s9h690
  4. I have just realized that I should have an option to choose between several preinstalled presets when cropping ( - https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/366751817/ - 42 seconds in). However, on my end, when I select the cog icon after choosing the crop tool, I don't see any preinstalled presets and can only import new ones (*.aftoolpresets files). Would love some help in how I 'd go about enabling the AP crop presets as I haven't been able to locate any existing *.aftoolpres.
  5. Thank you for taking the time to have a look!! I followed your suggestions, but still couldn't get a good fill unfortunately. 1. I first cropped about half of the transparent area: http://prntscr.com/pprbqp 2. Made a selection using the rectangular marquee tool : http://prntscr.com/pprcet 3. Tried filling using inpaiting using, edit - fill : http://prntscr.com/pprdd5 but this didn't work unfortunately 4. When trying to use the inpainting brush tool: http://prntscr.com/ppre5n Ithe result was this: http://prntscr.com/pprf2g Any Idea what I might be doing wrong?
  6. I was wondering at how I'd be able to recreate the content aware fill (on photoshop) shown in this video (at 1:45). Does affinity have something like this? I've tried using the inpainting brush tool, but could not really achieve a good result on a panorama I'm working on with AP (attached).
  7. HDR merge as well as the develop persona are pretty much the same for me as well. In case it helps, I'm generally working with projections of 360° images (usually 10000x5000 and about 100mb) , but even when scaled down to a small size as hifred & stokerg mentioned (thanks again for your input!), the performance is excruciatingly slow. I'm pretty much in love with affinity , but can't really use it when switching personas/hdr merge takes forever.
  8. Would absolutely love to have the ability to be able to view and save different "projections" of 360° equirectangular images such as tiny planet, fisheye, etc. Cheers, Lior
  9. Thanks so much! I didn't realize you could double click and edit the field...
  10. Thanks for your quick replies! I tried the beta, but it's pretty much the same unfortunately. Here's a link to a typical file Affinity is strugling with. Even when I scale it down to 1920x1080 it takes about 7-8 minutes to enter the tone mapping person
  11. Is there any way to specify specific output resolutions using the export persona? I'd like to specify exports of specific slices at 1920x1080 for example (which are the same 16:9 ratio as my original files, but at 1920x1080 would be smaller than the original). There are currently 1x , 2x 3x, etc sizes as well as a 100px width option, but I can't seem to find a way to enter my own desired size.
  12. It takes over 20-30 minutes to enter tone mapping or develop persona. In general performance is painfully slow although my laptop is well above the recommended specs. I'm on an i7-7700HQ 2.8ghy proccesor, Nvidia GeForce 1050ti with 4GB, 16GB of DDR4 ram, and affinity is on a an SSD hard drive. I've tried switching all options under the performance tabs, but nothing seems to help. Would really appreciate some help as the program is currently unusable for me.
  13. Exactly the same issue I'm having - Wondering if there's any workaround....
  14. Tone mapping persona creates a "seam line" along the edges of a 360 image since the edges are the stich line. I think a workaround could be to "strech/extend" the right and left edges of a 360 panorama , then run ton mapping persona, and following that "downsizing" the image back to the original size. Not quite sure how I'd go about that though - so I'd really appreciate some guidance in how to best avoid "seam lines" after using the tone mapping persona.
