  1. I have just purchased Affinity after using Photoshop elements 14 for some time. If I made a mistake in elements it was easy to rectify, however I cannot for the life of me work out how to rectify a mistake with affinity, help please.
  2. I am new to photography and the entire post editing process all together. There are a lot of flaws I'm sure but I really enjoy working with Affinity Photo and enjoy all of the work I have seen here thus far. Please enjoy and let me know what could be addressed if you care to share:)
  3. I am trying to print an 8 page booklet of photos in Affinity Publisher. The colors lose some saturation when i print it out on Matte paper as i would expect. I am used to soft proofing in Lightroom, which has a lot of control for specific papers. Within Affinity, i believe soft proofing is only available in Affinity Photo, so i am trying to create a workflow to boost the saturation for the paper type, but ultimately print it out of Affinity Publisher. When I opened an image in AP, I applied the ICC profile for Inkpress Print Plus Matte two sided paper on the soft proof layer. The color shift was dramatic, it desaturated the colors. Relative and perceptual rendering did not change the color, but saturation rendering did and brought it much closer to the desired output. If i try other paper profiles, the color shift is more subtle and more like what i would expect using matte papers. A couple of question to help me figure out how to do this workflow: 1. The Affinity Photo tutorials do not follow soft proofing through to the printing module. Do you turn off the soft proof layer then use the other layers adjustments to print.? 2. Since the color shift is unusually dramatic on the one ICC profile, could it be a problem with how AP using this particular third party profile (although i have not seen this issue in Lightroom or inDesign for that matter)? 3. How do you set Saturation rendering to in the print workflow - this is a clear setting in Photoshop and Lightroom? I don't see the rendering option in the workflow. 4. I really need to print this out in Publisher, so how do you carry through the soft proofing adjustments back to Publisher to get the adjustments that would help recover some of the saturation lost on matte paper? I am quite frustrated by the lack of a clear tutorial or manual on managing a print workflow to a photo printer (such as a Surecolor P600 or Canon Pro 1000). This is further complicated but the different print interfaces between Publisher and Photo. Affinity Photo is much better, Publisher has a mysterious printer feature tab that doesn't make much sense (i have a related, unanswered post on this). Please point me in the right direction to anything that would educate me. I have looked through the Affinity Photo Tutorials, the Affinity Publisher Tutorials (both on the website, and the extra tutorials i have purchased). I also bought the Affinity Photo Workbook. I am either a slow learner or the information is not there.
  4. Only since joining Affinity have I purchased a DSLR (Nikon D3400) and around 60% of the photos I take are of Wilson, my Romanian rescue, so what better place to share them? Bonus cats, as promised - Hopefully these bring some joy to your weekend!
  5. I have drawn some black lines, on a separate layer, but have now decided the lines need to be a different color. They took me quite awhile to get exactly how I wanted them, so I really don't want to try to redraw them; especially since I would like to have two versions of the lines, and that would require redrawing them absolutely perfectly(not possible for me) twice. I need to retain the feathering, so the flood fill won't work, since it makes them look thicker and chunky. I followed the instructions for the Color Replacement brush, but the only color that is changing is the very lightest of the feathered pixels along the edge of the line, but even they are not changing to the correct color, but a somewhat grayish hue of the replacement color I chose. I did see another discussion, when I searched the Color Replacement brush, about the color not changing correctly. That person finally resolved his problem by using "Protect Alpha", but I can't find "Protect Alpha" in my program. I did try changing the color using an adjustment layer and recoloring it, but I can't get the color I want.
  6. Added a PDF tutorial describing some of the methods to create vector brushes from a personal perspective. Some of the techniques are a bit unconventional.. but I hope you find it useful! Created using AD and APu (1.7 beta) Sample pages as below: Create Vector Brush_06.pdf
  7. Just some of my product photography test I've been doing lately. All edited using Affinity Photo.
  8. In Affinity Photo, when creating a i.e. 12 colors palette from an image, how is the color calculated? - is it how many pixels from that color in the image? - are than the 12 colors placed in the palette in decreasing order? The first being the one of the most pixels in the image? If not, how are colors picked statistically and how are they ordered in the palette sequence? Thank you for explaining this: I need to be able to compare palettes from one painting to another...

  10. Hi all, Here the result of a long night chasing the last milky way for this year. It is a stack of 42 shots edited in Affinity photo with develop persona, plus other 2 for the foreground and the person (that's me!) shooting light to the universe. Sky has been stacked in sequator software, than the compositing has been done in AP, with all the fine tune required. 2 little problem found: - developing raw one by one it takes a long time; a method to apply raw settings to the entire group would be very usefull - TIFF exported from AP have something wrong. I faced several errors with them and I don't know why. It seems something well known… (using JPG everything went smooth, but I lost the 16 bit and you know, jpg… bah…) However, here the final result. Hope you like it. Have a great week end, see ya! G:
  11. This was my first time using Affinity Photo on iPad. It is my first composite of any sort which is a combination of a photo I took and replaced sky, painted colors to match sky and added stock photo of bird. I’m completely new to this so it was a bit cumbersome because I was finding some difficulty getting app to do as I was wanting it to do. For example....would choose the layer I was wanting to adjust exposure but it would adjust all layers, I’m sure was user error but still not sure as to what I was doing wrong. Anyways, this is my end result, would love feedback and any pointers for correcting issues I was having.
  12. Wow, love this feature, I created this paper letter that I screenshot from a PC Game. Went from full of writing to an empty letter. I even darken the lines using the pen tool with the line feature on a new layer. Then I used inpaint on the image layer.
  13. Good Day, 1234.mp4 My app keeps crashing when I use Frequency Separation even if I am just working on one photo. I've deleted the app and redownloaded it but I keep experiencing the same results. What can I do? I use a Macbook Air 13'' 2017 I've had the app for 2 years now and this problem started about 1 month ago. 1234.mp4
  14. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=76mQFsZrmvU A simple Explanation of the different Color Sliders in Affinity Photo. Did you always wonder why you need a RGB, HSL, LAB, CMYK Slider and more? In this video i will show you what they do and what they are good at. Ever wondered what HEX Color is or where that is used? I will show you :) Some questions answered in this video: What is RGB color? What is CMYK color? What is the difference between subtractive and additive Color? What is HEX Color? What does HSL mean?

  16. I have made 8 free LUTS for anybody to use. On the photos I used them on, I really like them. I hope you like them and you can maybe find them useful. You might hate them but you should try them out on different images. Enjoy! Thanks H 8 LUTS 2.zip
  17. Photo crashes when I hide an adjustment layer and afterwards show it again. I can reproduce the issue by performing the following steps: Navigate to the curves adjustment layer in the group Double click onto the layer and reset the curves Close the dialog Hide the curves adjustement layer in the layers dock Tick the visibility checkbox in the layers dock again in order to show the adjustment layer [crash] DSC07775-Bearbeitet.afphoto
  18. Solved: From Strokerg: "I had this on my Mac here in the office, which only has 1 monitor and the only way i found to fix it was to reset the app. Just start Affinity with the Control key held down and you should get a popup asking if you'd like to reset some settings, 3 options will be selected and you can just click clear. If you now enable separated mode and open a RAW file, you should have that toolbar back." Hi, New-ish to Affinity Photo so this might be an expected feature, but I've not been able to locate any information on it on the forums or manual ( or maybe I've searched for the wrong thing. ) Issue/situation: When developing raw images in 'Separate' window mode, the 'Develop' Button is not present - only when they are all merged in a single window. Question: How do you 'Develop' a Raw image when viewing them in Separate window mode? Screenshots: See screenshots of the develop button present in 'merged' window mode and missing in 'separate' window mode. Operating system: OSX Catalina 10.15.2 Affinity Photo: Version 1.7.3 Unusual hardware: Wacom tablet Intuos pro Any help or input on this matter is much appreciated, as I'm considering moving from other editors to Affinity Photo. Thank you in advance. PS: if this post is in the wrong forum, then please let me know, and I will submit it in another.
  19. Hi, New-ish to Affinity Photo so this might be an expected feature, but I've not been able to locate any information on it on the forums or manual ( or maybe I've searched for the wrong thing. ) Issue/situation: Sometimes when I add a level adjustment, the Histogram does not update when changing values. This issue does not seem to be consistent but not sure what would provoke it. Screen recording: See screen recording of the issue.

  20. I haven’t shared any work for a while so here’s something that I was playing around with yesterday and this morning. It’s a bit more complicated that it first looks (for example, I had to recreate the top of her head which was missing from the original image: https://pixabay.com/photos/girl-portrait-fantasy-face-eyes-4258000/ ). I’m not totally happy with the result – it’s not quite ‘there’ yet – but it’s good enough for now. (It’s deliberately fairly low-res so I didn’t have to worry about too much detail.)
  21. @James Ritson provides a detailed explanation regarding the Workflow of RAW files in Affinity Photo in the following thread:
  22. After getting a new laptop I installed affinity on the new mac running Catalina. Now it no longers shows the levels of where the colors are in the level or curve control. I never had this issue with my other mac. See diagram. No matter what I do it will not display. Shown is the level control. Curves do the same things. It makes it difficult to adjust as you don't know where it clips.
  23. Hi all, Hopefully I have posted this in the correct place, although I'm not convinced I have, apologies if so. I have a problem with a panorama I have made. I didn't think to take a second row of photos for the sky, but didn't like the balance of the picture once I had blended the pano. As such I extended the sky vertically in affinity, however this has created an odd looking sky. The real solution would be to get it right first time; I will make sure to take more than one row next time, even if it is just blank sky. Out of interest though, is there anything I can do to homogenise the sky so it's not separated into the vertical zones as below? I believe the zones have been created by the colour/intensity of the lights from the buildings. Origional pano, screenshot from capture one: Pano with sky extended, screenshot from Affinity: Workflow: the pano is comprised of 17 images, all shot in RAW (3.2 secs ISO 100, F5.6) and WB corrected to same value in capture one 20, then files exported as 16 bit TIFFs to PTGui where the pano was stitched, then opened in Affinity to use Mesh Warp to adjust perspective and in-painting to accommodate the warp. The sky was then extended, as described above. Thanks in advance, Freddie
  24. Hi, I was just curious.. I created a crescent moon as a end point. Is there a way to import it as a new arrowhead? Here's a demo pic.
