ianrb got a reaction from Pattou in Panorama/manual HDR / collage
All the best for 2019
mostly done in Affinity -- +Lr5.
Not going to add too much here as I'm just putting a few thoughts to the test for better Panoramas and Manual hrd/blending as done in the top images. Hoping to share a few ideas sometime this year lol
the panorama is west to east ; around 160 degrees. Around 6 -8 Pana Fz300 raw files . Handheld btw
Starting to get the old head around Ap; yet there is so much I still need to get up to speed on
Questions are welcome
ianrb got a reaction from Alfred in Saving an edited picture. Should I flatten?
Thanks mate; there are still a few things I need to sort about the forum software --- Fixx's quoted started about 8 hours early lol.
I will give backspace a try although I'm pretty sure I would have done so --- not overly important --- will give me something to do next year
ianrb reacted to John Rostron in Straighten problem in Aff Photo in Windows
I use a similar method to that of @ianrb. However, I first use the crop tool to make a narrow rectangle that encloses the line I want to straighten. I then rotate as @ianrb does, and then I expand the crop region to suit.
ianrb reacted to HVDB Photography in Clone Brush Tool
The only abnormalities I see is that :
- you made a copy of the background layer
- a 32 px brush size is very small
- with Source : "Current Layer & Below" selected, the cloning will affect both layers !
Try the following :
- delete de duplicate layer
- add a new (blank) pixel layer on top and keep it active (= a non-destructive working method)
- keep Source : "Current Layer & Below" selected
Then restart cloning and see what happens .

If you try to close the document without saving it, you should get a warning message with three buttons, Don't Save, Cancel, & Save. If you click the Save button, you should immediately get another warning message with these three buttons:

before and after -- these are the more advanced edits, however there are other new basic edited pics on my Fb page; photos by ian browne -- or Flickr
how does it look with the original pasted onto edited photo?
What is better ; one photo per thread or several as here?
Grass in front of the river water
The same tree
ianrb got a reaction from Alfred in lighting Question
a good subject for bracketing
the first edit I would do is crop out most of the 'pop belly'.
Your biggest drama is the lights are somewhat overexposed ; however you will be able to rescue some of that in the raw file
Would seem 'shadow/highlight' worked well enough in this edit --- I have also used curves to balance out the light and darks but it's rather limited with a small jpeg .
This will give you some ideas --- maybe crop out the belly and one light --- and a bit from the bottom --- use two layers > one darkened/one lightened > blend the two together --- likely getting a bit ahead of you now
Happy to answer questions were I can
ianrb got a reaction from VectorWhiz in No wonder there is nothing on TV
No wonder there is nothing on TV ---- it's broken free and the driver is still asleep .Talk about a magic carpet ride!!
Not sure about elsewhere; but in Australia there is a 2-3 month non-rating period, so basically TV is really **** from November to late February
This pic is far more complicated than it looks because of the big blue sky . This the original file --- "easier" to swap an Australian blue sky than match it
ianrb reacted to R C-R in Grids and guides questions
What are you trying to do that would require you to do that? Just select the object with the Move Tool (the one with the black arrow icon) & drag it. As long as you don't drag on a selection handle (or the rotation center if it is visible) you can move the object to wherever you want. Use the various snapping options available in the Snapping Manager if needed to align the object to something else in the document.
The tool with the white arrow icon is the Node Tool. It is used to modify or add nodes to a vector object.
ianrb reacted to R C-R in Grids and guides questions
It is not possible to change the starting point of grids & rulers in the current 1.6 retail versions, but it is possible in the 1.7 customer betas, so that feature should be available when the 1.7 retail updates are released.
Guides cannot be converted to artwork. You can use snapping to center artwork on the document centerlines -- just make sure "Snap to spread" & "Include spread mid points" are enabled in the snapping manager. Alternately, in the Guides Manager click the "Percent" checkbox & enter 50% to place a guide on a document centerline, or use snapping to center one dragged out from the ruler.
ianrb reacted to Callum in workflow question
It is hard for me to recreate this myself as this version of the image is quite low quality however this should be possible using the Invert and Black and White adjustments if you are able to provide the original file I should be able to create a video for you
ianrb got a reaction from SrPx in broken heart at the church steps
started from here and it was at a church --- we better not mention the WB lol
And we finished here just by fiddling with buttons and sliders
Honest thoughts and question welcome, although I have no idea to how
possibly just as much about noticing an object that could be a photo to practice editing
