  1. I have seen this written about in several of the forum items. I just cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I have an image, with several faces in the center, all of them are in focus. The two faces on the edge of the image are not in focus. So I want to sharpen just those two faces. The Selective Sharpening Video Tutorial is way too complicated for me, with high pass and so on. I just want to sharpen a corner of the image. I click on Sharpen Brush Tool. Capacity, Flow, and Hardness are up as high as they can go. I paint the area that I want to be sharpened, and nothing happens.
  2. Newbie here. I notice that when I use the crop tool to straighten an image or remove parts of an image, it lists in the history the various steps that I have taken. For example, I perform the following using the crop tool, and the corresponding data is shown in the history. Change mode of crop (to 16:9) Constrain Crop Pan around Pan Crop Resize Resize Crop Rotate Rotate Crop etc. Then, when I click apply, all of that history is erased and replaced by "Raster Crop." It appears that only one action has been take on the image. Is it possible to undo each of the steps that make up that change. If I click Undo (or go back a step), I have to start from scratch. I would rather be able to back up a step or two, like to after I did the Pan Crop (in the above example), and then do the Resize and Rotate again. Thanks for your help.
  3. Thanks Carl. I like that beginning snapshot so that I can get back to my original photo quickly. I had been saving the original JPEG, but thanks to this information, I know that I can delete it.
  4. I know this may sound silly, but I will ask anyway. One might say "why would you care"? But I like to keep my files clean. First, I have "Save History With Document" checked. I have made a number of changes to my document. The last three (for example) changes I do not want to save, either in the document or the final image that I will export later. So I do "Undo" or use the scrubber to place my history highlight in the correct place. When I save and close my document, I want the save process to abandon those three extra changes so that when I reopen the document, the history only shows to the point at which I saved. I have not found a way to do this. I look forward to your reply.
  5. Wow - just eight hours ago. This needs to be added pronto. I need to see a strip of photos to decide which ones to keep. I also need to be able to see two photos side by side to decide which one of two to keep.

    IPTC/EXIF editing abilities

    I find it hard to believe that I cannot edit EXIF data in Affinity Photo.

    IPTC /EXIF editing

    This is actually quite shocking to me. So now I have to run PaintShop Pro to change the date taken?
  8. You have to be kidding me? No editing of EXIF? What is this, Aftershot? Sorry to be so cynical, but this seems an obvious oversight.
  9. I know that I can figure this out by a lot of testing, but I thought I would ask here and see what I find? I see that Affinity Photo has both History and Layers. I see how each can be put to good use. How does "Save History with Document" affect layers and how does it affect History? Do both of these apply to saving to .afphoto document files and to exporting to JPEG? Do layers get exported to JPEG? I hope my questions make sense. I am obviously a newbie, but I really like the software. Thanks.
  10. I apologize if this has been answered. I searched and could not find an answer. Is there a way to increase the size of the icons on the various panels: down the left side and across the top.
