  1. Software version: Affinity Photo Beta 1.7.0.243. The Hue Blend mode in affinity is taking Saturation and Luminosity from bottom layer and Hue from Blend layer. Could anybody suggest is there any blend mode that retains Hue and Lightness from bottom layer and Hue from blend layer. View Screen Shots: Bottom Layer: HSL (300, 100, 50) Blend Layer: HSL (100, 100, 50) (Blend Mode Normal) Result with Blend mode Hue: HSL (100, 100, 30) Vs (What I want is (100, 100, 50) )
  2. L in the HSL mean lightness. And this L does not come into picture when you use luminosity, color and hue blend modes. What comes is the luminosity (i.e) perceived brightness.
  3. Yes. I understand that Adobe works that way too. Because Luminosity is to be retained from bottom layer on most occasions. But latest version of GIMP offers two kind of "HUE" blend mods one that retains Saturation and Luminosity from bottom layer and another "HUE" blend mode that retains Saturation and Lightness from bottom layer. Hope we expect this in future version of Affinity.
  4. What is the advantage of doing tonal corrections in "Develop Persona" when compared to do the same changes in "Photo Persona" in RGB 16 bit mode? My usual workflow is: I open a RAW file in affinity. Just set to output profile Prophoto and color depth to RGB 16 bit. Then click develop and go to Photo persona and do the tonal changes there. Am I loosing anything by skipping the RAW development and directly going to Photo Persona with 16bit image? Thanks
  5. Verified that this issue is not happening in previous beta versions. Steps. 1. Open a RAW image in Affinity photo 2. Click develop button in the "Develop" persona and go to the "Photo" persona Issue: Now in the Photo persona, the image looks washed out compared to the image that was shown in Develop persona. I understand that, Clipping to 8 bit is no longer done in new version. But it should be consistent between how image looks in "Develop" Persona and "Photo" Persona. Screen shots: (New Image opened and shown in "Develop Persona": Now after clicking develop the image is shown in Photo Persona:
  6. Thank you Walt. I just observed that the issue is there for 32bit image also.
  7. Thank you. I just observed that, even if 32bit image is produced, the issue is there. User has to manually assign a profile in photo persona.
  8. So """Document ▸ Assign ICC Profile""" should be done by user every time they open a raw file right? (until this is fixed)
  9. I am not sure if you should assign your calibrated monitor profile in there. Ideally you should assign the profile the camera assigns to the image. If you assign the calibrated profile again, then there is no use of calibrating. The calibrated profile is already used by your monitor and you monitor is showing colors correctly.

    Version 1.7 beta is real power house. Love the realistic brushes and textures it provides.

    Thank you ianrb. You are spot on. I was wondering something was missing from very beginning. Yes. More contrast makes this shot even more beautiful. Thank you!

  18. I am using Wacom Pen and tablet for retouching on Affinity Photo 1.7 beta. The issue is that when I use wacom pen and go and click Brush Icon in the tool box and come back to image area, the cursor or pointer still appears as pointer instead of round shaped brush. For bringing round shape, I always have to move mouse slightly and then start using the pen. This is not show stopper, but a real usability issue for pen users. We have to place the pen down and use the mouse just to bring the cursor into brush shape and then start using pen.

    Brush does not appear round automatically when using Wacom Pen

    I believe proper drivers will solve this. They default generic pen drivers that comes with Windows has this issue we reported. Try uninstalling the existing pen drivers and reinstall them. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=49498 The another reason could be because of one Windows 10 update that messed pen behavior. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/unexpected-panning-or-scrolling-in-some-apps-with/e8db3f51-91db-4a99-ba24-572d59686250?tm=1523650087221 https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/surface/forum/surfaccesso-surfpen/surface-pen-swap-bug-in-photoshop/9c8188ac-c846-4a5d-9381-672acb3ff4b6#LastReply

    'Show bush previews' were enabled by default. What helped me in this case was Installing Wacom tablet software from Wacom site. This updated pen and tablet drivers. Now it is working. Thank you Chris for reminding about drivers.

    A true Lightroom Photoshop combo replacement

    Affinity Photo 1.7 beta completely replaced my Photoshop needs. I would like to have a Digital Asset Management software like Lightroom from Affinity. This will enable culling and then taking them to Affinity Photo for more detailed work. So how to do image management until we get another gem from Affinity? Nikon View NX-i does the job for basic image management. View NXi + Affinity Photo is a true replacement of subscription based Adobe Photography CC plan. Right Click The Image you want to take to Affinity Photo. Register If you have not registered before. Another way to take your image to Affinity Photo.
  23. I would like to have one DAM from Affinity. Until then, Nikon View NX-i and Affinity Photo covers my workflow. This pair kicks the subscription based Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop away.
  24. Thank you Walt. It looked like the courses had been created and list was last updated on 2015. But we got 1.6 release in 2018 this year March. So I am sure, there are things to add. But not a show stopper. We can manage to use those features by seeing features list.
  25. Well Done Martin! I was looking for this. Excellent job! Thank you!
