  1. may have just solved it . Would using ProPhoto instead of sRGB color make the difference ??
  2. colours have gone a bit crazy in the color selection panels -- what have I done and can I fix it Not a big drama; does not affect the photo colours --- been happening for a while Cheers; still very happy I switched to Affinity
  3. was fiddling with this -- actually re-editing to get the strokes better 2nd image the raw image questions welcome
  4. or this work around New layer >select all (click the icon) >have grid on >snapping on >grab the move tool >drag the marching ants to suit >>select/outline >form outline thickness + position to suit > fill with color ( I use the flood fill tool (bucket icon) Somewhere in there it would pay to ''save selection'' I'm sure there are other ways to do much of it; but the above worked for me --- worked spot on actually I can go to bed tonight knowing I have learnt something new today ------ whether I remember it tomorrow or next week is the unknown
  5. Thank you @walt.farrell; I would have saved myself so much time if I asked earlier will keep your thoughts mind for next time So much for ticking "notify me of replies" Cheers
  6. After a bit of a crash/freeze up I now wish I saved my preferred Studio/screen layout -- "wish I saved" is really if I could save Just one of the little annoying missing bits . Yep; for me anyway it's bit like crying over spilt milk, but .................... Cheers
  7. will the rectangle marquee tool snap to the grid? I cannot get the tool to start/stop on the line as happens when moving images --- great part of Affinity photo btw (yes; I have forced alinement off ) Any tricks or tips would be appreciated
  8. Now don't ask the simple question as I have no idea how made it work even though it's now somewhat different Thanks for help and ideas; I'm sure one has worked somehow . If I work out how I will share
  9. I'm getting this today with those similar setting to @Sheltieuk Simple stuff like this really getting under my skin And once I had it set up @Jaffa I have had no drama; although if I did open a file in another App (nic) I needed to reset Ap as default editor --- didn't work this time
  10. Thanks @Ron P. . I have tried it a number of times --- have restarted the computer with no happy effect
  11. What have done or not done ?. I did have Ap as the default ext editor; however after opening a file with Nic Color pro 2; I cannot get Ap to be the default again. From memory, I had a few dramas originally . >> Lr preferences > external editing > choose >Affinity > photo icon --- however that does not replace the Nic apps. The work around is export >folder > Ap > open > save > import to Lr . yep much easier straight from lr5 Would be great if we could remove the Ps option so we can have two defaults Thanks for your thoughts

    New Affinity Photo user - First image

    nicely done @terrylw64--- the more you use the app more you will like it
  13. This is to about photo editing only . What do you consider the more useful Affinity texture brushes when editing nature / cloud / river photos ? So far; I have taken a similar and simple approach to Lr5 where there is one brush to do everything. One round brush >adjust settings to suit the job at hand. I have no idea so I am getting bit confused with the far too many ''arty'' brushes so I'm hoping you could suggest a few texture brushes that would have some occasional uses -- dodge and burn / masking sort of work with mostly . Any suggestions would be appreciated
  14. some recent images that travelled through Affinity Photo -- old fashion dodge and burn would the most used tool used in these images Lumix Fz300 Just like a big kid : throw -- throw it ----- ------ ----- ----- not so far next time Lonely pelican three photos of the one tree >background is bark from a nearby tree + a little texture brushing as above plus : black and white adjustment layer with a multiply blending layer + the orton effect I saw something in this long dead tree root beside the river ; however what I saw was not quite like how it ended up Very similar edits as the above files > honest comments / suggestions for next time / questions welcome
  15. this is another good video --- any others you know off; don't need to be affinity . Must add I do miss the focus stacking build into the great Olympus Em D1 + 12-40 mm lens . A jpg file would be saved of the stack as well as all the raw files --- or was that all the jpg files (??) Raw I think!
