  1. You can download it at https://store.serif.com/en-gb/update/windows/photo/1/
  2. Really great new features, I love a lot of them, especially divide blend mode for correcting color casts. Congratulations for this new version. I have two questions that might be answered: I have asked myself whether it is possible to use the astrophotography stacking option also for milkyway pictures with landscape in the foreground (like e. g. with sequator https://sites.google.com/site/sequatorglobal/ or similar software) or is it only suitable for deep sky photography as it is shown in the tutorials? Furthermore, could you comment on your plans with the timelapse function because this is a feature that I am really looking forward to and it has been within the betas and has been removed in advance of the release. Thanks for your great work again!
  3. Hey guys, I really love to use Affinity Photo. One feature that I would love to see would be the option to select a gradient in the swatches panel as setting/preset for a gradient map adjustment layer. For example, using the color picker tool of gradient map to select a color in the swatches panel is very anoying and laborious.... If there is already an option or workaround for this, please let me know. Kind regards, Lars
  4. Thanks for your response, this gives a workaround for the moment. This concret example may be a rare special case that does not seem to be very relevant to many but in general: shouldn't the effect of a blend mode be independent from color depth? (And as far as I can tell, it did not matter up to now, at least I didn't experience this before version 1.8.2). So there might be a general issue in the code for blend modes that can have also other effects. Not sure, just a suggestion to have a closer look at....
  5. Yeah, I know the other techniques for "high pass". Nevertheless, this was working properly in Affinity Photo without artefacts before, it is working properly in other software like GIMP or Darktable and is still working properly for jpeg files in Photo 1.8.2. Even if these "bizarre results", as you call it, are desired by Serif (I have high doubts that this is the case...), there should be the same artefacts for jpeg files directly in photo persona and raw files coming from develop persona....
  6. To increase the local contrast of an image, I apply the following approach in the photo persona: 1. Duplicate the layer 2. Set the blend mode of the upper layer to "vivid light" and the opacity to 20% - 30% 3. Apply "high pass" live filter to the upper layer with radius 100 px and monochrom checked This was working fine for both jpeg files and raw files coming from the develop persona for all versions before 1.8.2. For version 1.8.2 however, this leads to strange artefacts when using raw files from develop persona: Jpeg RAW I also tried a workaround by using only one layer (no duplicate) and applying the "high pass" directly to the lower layer using "vivid light" as blend mode for the "high pass" with the other settings (radius, opacity) as above. This works fine for the jpeg file but same unsatisfying result for the raw file. I have tested this for numerous jpeg-raw combinations and you can find 3 pairs attached. Images.rar
  7. Yeah definitively a great feature that may also allow batch processing of RAW files!
  8. Is there a possibility for assigning a keyboard shortcut to apply a desired macro? This could speed up workflow significantly compared to clicking in the library panel...
  9. Yeah definitively a great idea! For now, a workaround is the possibility of using macros to reuse settings.
  10. Same for me. Editing the exif-data manually has no effect for pictures taken with my Samyang 12mm.
