  1. I use the Select Color Range tool in PS almost daily. The limitations in the AP Select Sampled Color tool makes it frustratingly useless in my applications. I would like these features added: Add or subtract from selection with additional clicks on the image. Additional options for viewing selection beyond marching ants, e.g., overlay, black on white, etc.
  2. Yes, I should have mentioned: all operations were on the Background(Pixel) layer. monkey2.afphoto
  3. I first noticed this problem in but it's also in so I'm adding it here. The issue is at least one of the clone brush options do not recognize image rotations. I open an image which I straighten I select the clone brush, alt-click the inner corner of the monkey's right eye (our left) and clone it to the upper left. Then I change the clone Flip option to Horizontal and repeat the clone: Note the highlights in the eyes: AP flipped the cloned section horizontally, but is sampling from the original, unrotated image. I expected to get a mirror image of the same leveled eye. Lemuel Johnson
  4. I would like the values entered in Refine Mask for an adjustment layer mask to be saved with the mask (like the PS mask Properties Panel) for future review or modification. Now every time you open the Refine Mask dialog all values start at zero instead of how the mask is currently defined. AP is using the current values to correctly display the mask, I'd like the dialog to be pre-populated with those numbers.
  5. So I should include the grey card and adjust exposure in AP to 55,55,55? I can live with that, but I suspect I won't be the last one tripped up by this major variance from CR/LR.
  6. I understand those explanations but they don't apply to the actual problem. The comparative image I posted is of AP with the image assistant turned on. Both Camera Raw and AP Develop report the card as 128,128,128 (or so) but the AP image is much too light. If I include a grey card in a photograph then adjust the exposure in AP so it samples at 128,128,128 I don't think I'm going to like the result. Still assuming I'm doing something wrong.

  7. I expected the values to be around 128 because that's what the card image measures in Camera Raw. The AF image is visually much lighter than medium grey, the sampler from Photoshop measures it at about 180, 180, 180. I assume I've done something wrong in Affinity.
  8. I should preface by saying I'm new to both Affinity and camera raw processing. I take a photo of a standard grey card as raw (.cr2) and open in Develop (Assistant turned off). The onscreen image is medium grey. I set a sampler point in the card, the rgb values are 55,55,53. Why aren't they all 128 (or so)? If I enable the Assistant (and the tone curve) the rgb values are all around 120, but the image is much lighter than the grey card.
  9. As a new user, +1 for incorporating the Alt-drag clipping indicators in Curves for the Master and color channels. It's a very basic part of my workflow.
