  1. I found the term "rasterise" a bit confusing as well. Is't also possible to Rasterise an image that you have opened (not placed)? For me, before "rasterising" an image, you can always change the crop and/or size without loss in quality. After rasterising the cropped area is deleted and it is no more possible to upsize (without loss in quality). The image is "Finalised" :unsure: (at least in my mind)
  2. jmac, this is the way I do it also. If you have set up the RGB and CMYK profiles to be used, it's alright. Of course you can always preview the image in CMYK before doing the conversion.
  3. Okay. Thanks Edit. When I compared the images above, it was native afphoto files
  4. Not sure I follow :unsure: Export setting? I did a quick and dirty test. 1. A 500x500 image at 200 dpi 2. Same file resized (Resize document) to 1000x1000 and 300dpi. Resampling and Lanczos 3 non-sep. 3. Created a new document with the size 1000x100 at 300dpi. Paste in the layer from 500x500. It's a small difference, but to my old eyes, version #3 is a little softy.
  5. This might be old, bad Photoshop habits of me. But, if I need to adjust the image to meet some printing demand - like the output size or resolution - resampling must be done. That is pixels are removed or added. In AFP you have the option to chose a sampling algoritm (quality) when changing the size of the image, and I don't know which sampling type is used when you just resize an image that is past into another image with higher resolution.
  6. Have you tried to reset the swatches using the small hamburger menu to the right? I have no idea if that works.
  7. Hi Stuart MBd beat me :) One thing to remember - tick "Resample" when changing the resolution (most of the time anyway).
  8. Hi It is not necessary to use inpainting, healing etc on the background layer. I always create a new, empty pixel layer above the background. And - important - select "Current layer and below" in the top toolbar. If I'm not happy with the result, I can just trash that layer ;) Magnu
  9. wldo, the main reason for me to still use Aperture is the album/library function. In Aperture I can create albums (both smart and "dumb"), add keywords and rate images with stars. This makes it easier to find images at a later moment. None of this is possible with AFP. Affinity Photo can just develop the raw file, besides all the awesome photo editing stuff.
  10. That's entirely up to Apple - the limitation is with Photos. At the moment no app developer can add that function to Photos.
  11. This is a topic I love to hate ;) At the moment my workflow is: - Tethering shooting into Aperture - Basic adjustments in Aperture, and then export as tiff - Open in AFP for finishing the image. Export as jpg for use on the web In my opinion, Iridient Developer is the best RAW developer (Nikon D7100). Have tested AFP with both Serif and Apple engine, and some day I will really try to get as good result with AFP. But I still need the DAM (coming soon to a computer near you - from Serif :D ) I have tried, tested (and bought!) a lot of these DAM "light": Mylio, Photo Mechanic, Graphic Converter, Capture One and some free which I have forgotten the name of. But none is as easy to use - and competent - as Aperture. So please, Serif, look at Aperture when building your DAM :wub:
  12. Just a word of caution clicking "Merge": you can never open the image another day and change the filter settings ;)
  13. Graham, you might already be aware of this, that AFP does not give you a preview of the exported jpg. And in my opinion, jpg compression is "sensitive" with noisy images (water color effect).
  14. natclass313, I always do the resizing when exporting the file. Pro: can anytime go back the the original size Con: don't get a "real" feeling of the sharpness - I use Clarity filter (live) for sharpness. But I can live with that.
