  1. Thanks for the font creation tool steer, great work by the way
  2. I don't why I haven't played with .... err .... been creative with vectors; a whole new set of possibilities thanks Dan and MEB good work
  3. Thanks Alfred for the information, Interesting and not entirely a surprise. Well lets stop this chatter and get on with some Photography :-D
  4. Hi Stephen, Very true Stephen, I grant you the embedded world of software development is very different; the metal is very close at hand and true in my day job I am nearly as busy with the concerns of the hardware as much as software design, implementation and testing. I have no wish to argue one business model is better than another on the strength of my personal knowledge and experience or in fact if there is a best, correct or better way of doing business at all. The commercial choices of a business are the just that, their choice. From a customers' perspective we too have choice, wel
  5. A good balanced reply Brad methinks. Like others on here I am also a software engineer (mostly embedded for 30 years but lately snuck into C# XAML UI .. old dogs and new tricks hey) and yes you are right just because a code base as a common design for different operating system the implementation for different OS and the corresponding UI doesn't happen by magic and there then is maintaining said different platforms not to mention the heaps of testing in development etc. I have both Affinity Photo and Designer for Mac but I would be happy to purchase a licence for an iPad if I had one ... savin
  6. Nice work JMWellborn and so true, I have a number of (well thousands actually) of such forlorn 35mm film slides from far far ago, which I scanned a while ago now. I find getting the tone between new sky and old photo a task to match, I need to study the videos yet again Recently I did a sky replacement on a scan of a very faded photograph of my father in law with his beloved springer spaniel with them sat on a hill, the sky was around the top of both dog and person which was very painstaking to select for the mask. I won't share it as he died recently and it seems disrespectful to
  7. Hi Walt, thanks for your reply Sorry I wasn't clear: I'm using MacOS I've tried the XnViewMP application and it doesn't really cut it for RAW files, yes it'll display them but painfully slow on my MacBook-Pro ... it's a decent spec (the best at the time of purchase) I got the hardware with high end photography in mind so even the graphics card was the highest spec at the time of purchase, .. I say this so I know it's not the hardware that's slow :-/ Update Awdt has come up with a good alternative Fast Raw Viewer it is very very quick and not too expensive. Than
  8. As a photographer (amateur) I have tens of thousands of RAW files and in my work flow one of the first things I do is review my photographs so that I can choose what to discard or mark as worthy to develop further. One of the most frustrating things I find and I know I'm not alone in this this is there are almost no file browsers / viewers / managers that are capable of displaying RAW files in a timely fashion. Most file browsers are woefully inadequate in this area, they either can't manage RAW files or are so painfully slow as to render a work flow unusable. Please, please, pl
  9. Hi Fraser, I have made such a collage ... no expert mind I was asked by a friend to crate a collage of photos she took with alphabetical letters as her insperation .. that's the English alphabet, be interesting trying to get the letters Ö Ä Ü in photographic form .. now there's a project. Anyway..... I had a bunch of RAW files from her and used Affinity photo to create the collage; I found working in 32bit (HDR) colour format for each file made for a truely massive .afphoto best to export to 8 bit JPEG highest quality .. still big files .. or 16 bit Tiff files if you have the comput
  10. 3 RAW files: one PEF file (Pentax K3 full size) One DNG file (Pentax K3 Full size) one ARW file (Sony A580 Full size) Various lenses. Hope they help :-)
  11. +1 me too, Close all would be nice :-D
  12. Err isn't nichts German for nothing? just saying ...
  13. @MEGraphicDesign Yes I'm looking forward to that too, the last I got from the team was yes it is in pipeline. Yes I too would like the software to be kind of along the lines of Bridge in the sense it doesn't have to maintain a database. Update: I've seen a post on another thread posted yesterday that confirms that the team are actively working on an asset management app.
  14. Hi RJ21, I have used Affinity photo for a number of years now and I have never looked back as far as Affinity photos is concerned. I have recently purchased Designer too, there is a little cross over but they excel in different things so I say do it. The selection tools in both apps are very good if used correctly I find. The macro feature of Affinity Photo is excellent too, I use it frequently and have made many a macro to make life easier. Cheers Reggie
  15. @MEB Wow quick response :-D No probs MEB as long as it's still logged. I feared it might have been a fix that has over time been unfixed by such things as the magic of software configuration management or some such machination of software development ... yep been there .... small team and a zillion demands with prioritisation always keeping lower impact issues under the radar. You are doing a great job, thank you.
  16. Hi @MEB and @sinbad Looks like we still have the same issue peeps. I was doing the same thing as Sinbad but for AD 1.6.1 Beta: That's December 2017 ... oh merry Christmas and a happy new year by the way :-D I have the same issue so I am glad I found Sinbad's report so we can at least keep these related issues together. I was following the beginners tutorial as Sinbad was and came up with the same issue .... Yes using the work around worked; that is, converting the nodes to Smooth nodes did work. Indeed a bit awkward and you wouldn't t
  17. Having purchased Affinity Photo years ago I finally persuaded my self to buy Affinity Designer too. I'm glad I have as I have been having too much fun and not getting on with stuff I should be doing :-D Had a quick play with drawing a new profile icon for myself too.
