    A contribution.
    High Pass sharpening is most useful to me when the 'unsharp' method appears to induce a little too many artefacts (especially when I have cropped harshly).
    Yet to try this with AP but my usual method under these circumstances was to only sharpen the mono layer in Labs (PS obviously) thereby creating one sharpened layer without the RGB layers suffering.
    I will see if this is possible in AP when next working unless someone else gets there first.
    Up until now High Pass on all layers seems to do the job well [perhaps its just I got better with the camera ;-)] 
    Oh over sharpening for the web with unsharp settings is my norm.. 
    Printing images is (for me) the final product. Usually on my own Large Format Epson for shows/customers (rarely now) or for the wall.

    True John; however I have to admit I have a  sharpening in my "1st edit" Lr preset added to all files and then add a "local contrast with Average blending layer" with Affinity .  So in fact high pass sharpening doesn't get used that much in my workflow and I was really trying to show Bill another way.

    Or because of the colour of the light. (I once slept in a room where there were plants kept under ultraviolet light, and the shadows were yellow.)

    Probably a neater edge  around the image, apply that edge prior to using perspective and group all the components so you can perspective the group. Less is more so drop the intensity of the shadow on the flower, make it more diffused and also colour it a darkish yellow, shadows are rarely grey and are often tinted with colour either because of the translucency of the object causing the shadow to be tinted or because of the surface the shadow is being cast onto.

    I like pictures that extend "outside the frame" and adding a perspective filter adds a new dimension to play with. Thanks.

    I think not being able to see the border on all four sides is a display anomally.
    As I said, if I zoom in, the border is there, and it displays correctly when the image is projected, which is the main objective.
    Are you adding the border to the "Inside" or "Outside" (the default) of your image?
    If I leave it on "Outside" I don't see a border at all, so presumably I would need to increase the document size in order to make it visible? which seems a bit counter-intuitive.
    If I add an outside border I'd expect it to become part of my image and the size should adjust automatically.
    I've never tried adding the border "Outside" the image.
    I always choose to add the border "Inside" and then it doesn't affect the overall image size, which must meet the contest requirements.
    A thin (1 pixel) "Keyline" helps most images stand out from their background.

    Why not make two rectangles with strokes set to inside and just have one set at say 10 units in White and the other above it set to 5 units in black, you can make a macro to automate this.

    I want to add a 1 pixel border to my image and I find the "enlarge the canvas" or two rectangle technique rather cumbersome, espcially if you want a very narrow border.
    At our club, projected images must conform to a certain size, a maximum of 1400 pixels horizontally or 1050 pixels vertically.
    For a dark image it is often good to add a narrow (1 pixel) white border to frame the image and help it stand out.

    Here's how I go about it using the "Effects > Outline" command.
     
    Import jpg image into Affinity Photo. Resize to the prescribed dimensions (as above). [Resizing often results in one of the sides being a fraction of a pixel (for example 927.4 pixels) In this case I resize again with the "padlock" symbol unlocked to a whole number of pixels.] Flatten the image Select "Effects" > "Outline" > "Blend Mode - Normal" "Opacity" > 100% "Radius" > 1 pixel "Alignment" > "Inside" "Fill style" > "Solid Color" Set color to taste. This will result in a 1 pixel coloured brder around your entire frame.
    The only issue I have with this technique is that, viewing the full image, even at 100% I don't see the entire border, often only on two or three sides but not all four sides.
    If I zoom in to say 150%, the border is there, and it also shows OK when the image is projected, it's only when I view the complete image on screen I can't see it on every side.
    This may be the problem the OP is having, but can anyone offer an explanation for this?

    this is written for Ps  but is very similar if not the same for Affinity 
     A note from experience  --- you don't need to know many of the editing tricks seen in their 1000s on the www. There are easy ways to sharpen and there are more complicated ways to sharpen; however most weekend happy snappers and even enthusiasts will likely never notice the difference. This applies to so  many photo editing tricks. If you are new to all this; you really only need to understand and know the editing basics. The more detail edits will work their way into your photography as you need to know  . Also; don't get bogged down by flooding your computer will presets/actions/macros . I have seen and heard of some who push buttons all day trying to find that magic edit from 1000s of presets.
    The same goes for editing programs; get you one can understand and learn it well.  I find I can spend too much time trying to find "that perfect"  texture, or border that no one will notice anyway. 

    Now getting your camera in your hands, do your own photography, and stop reading **** like this on the www
