  1. Thanks firstdefence. That works perfectly. I agree that I over complicated things. Thanks for your recommendation.
  2. I am thinking of creating a sort of collage of images in an Affinity document. I need three columns with separation lines. I want to ensure that I can use a standard Affinity template and just place three images in the appropriate place and move them around so that they look good together. I want the image to be visible in one column only. I used rectangles and created mask layers under them. However, this does not seem to be fool proof and I run into issues with the center column invariably. Also, I lose the column border. I have attached the afphoto file. Can you suggest a better method to do this? EMW.afphoto
  3. I use Affinity for Windows on a laptop. I am used to LR where you can load a batch of photos, adjust one photo and sync as many photos from the batch you loaded into LR. This is very simple to do, as you normally load a batch of photos for post processing. I went through the 'batch' videos of Affinity and noticed that you need to follow one set of steps to record the macro - typically, you would load one photo and record the macro. Following this, you need to load the batch and run the macro. Is there not a simple way of applying the post processing steps of one photo to the rest of the photos, you have already loaded?
  4. Wow, thanks for going through such detailed problem solving. That separates you from the likes of Adobe. I will pull the afphoto file down and use your note to understand the steps more clearly. Somehow, under many conditions, I am unable to take advantage of the warp/perspective tool. Is there general guidance on the sweet spots for these tools? New users like me get frustrated when we presume that the tool will fix a certain kind of problem. Also, why does this happen? I used the standard Canon kit lens and why should it record the seen so crookedly in the first place? I tried several post processing lens correction options and they did not help.
  5. I have now tried to attach the photo I am trying to set straight.Even with the reduced file size (about 2 mb) it still gives a -200 error and fails.
  6. I took a photo recently of two skyscrapers that are close to each other. I took the photo at 28 mm on my Canon T7i. The buildings do not appear straight and I tried to use both the single and dual plane perspective tool and cannot seem to solve the problem. I have attached the image. The file is 10.9 Mb and uploads are failing. Can you provide me with another method by which I can provide you the file?
  7. This is not a tech question, but didn't know where else to post. I am working with the trial version and the Serif site had a 30% promotion (no expiration date was displayed). The price now has gone back to $70 CAD. It was priced at $47.99 till yesterday. I was planning to buy the product when my trial expires. Is there any way I can get the $47.99 price so that I can buy it today?
  8. Dan, I uploaded both the photos to dropbox. On the iceberg, I managed to clone stamp and got rid of the gap between the two photos I wanted to merge. However, I am struggling to move the iceberg directly over the hand.
  9. For some reason, I get the error 200 when I upload any image. They are well within the size limit. "There was a problem processing the uploaded file:-200"
  10. before any adjustment in JPG. You can see that the countertop and the shelves are all bent in this panaroma.
  11. I have another problem for which I need some help. Here is the background to this picture: 1. I saw an iceberg almost 2 KM from the coast in my recent trip 2. I took an image of my wife's hand as though it was holding the iceberg. 3. Being a 70-300 mm lens, the hand was in focus but not the iceberg 4. I took subsequently a few more pictures with the iceberg in sharp focus 5. I want to merge the iceberg from the image where it was in sharp focus along with the hand that is in focus 6. I had difficulty wit the selection brush as I could not exactly get a rectangular mask. I used a marquee tool and was able to create a rectangular mask 7. When I created a mask, there is a small gap of about 1 cm between the two images in the merged image 8. What is the best way to ensure that there is no gap between the two images in the merged image? 9. Also, I want the transition between the two images to be seamless as the color of water in both these images is a bit different. Your input is appreciated.
  12. Thanks Dan for your responses. I did go through the videos. In my situation, I plan to take the photo of the boat sailing on the lake with a tripod. Apart from the object, the only thing that may have movement is perhaps the clouds in the sky. I will need to play with the software on how I can show the boat at various positions in its journey across the lake. Given these circumstances, should I : 1. Align the stack? 2. Use Mean operator or any others for stacking? What came close to my requirement was the example of Long exposure simulation. Of course, I am not trying to do that, but I may shoot myself on the foot with the moving clouds. Not sure, how to deal with that. Also, on the panaroma, I tried both the Mesh Warp and Perspective tools. I am not able to get the result I was looking for. Let me post the basic panaroma on the forum that is stitched by Affinity and you can perhaps get a better idea of the issues I am running into.
