  1. To celebrate the supermoon I've recorded a video on editing supermoon images in Photo, using various techniques like HDR merge, channel equations, tone mapping, selections and cropping: https://vimeo.com/191612174 If you managed to grab any shots of the moon last night, please do share them in this forum! My view of the moon wasn't particularly dramatic (East Midlands, UK), but I ended up with some nice shots, three of which I've attached to show how different editing techniques in Photo can produce different results. Unfortunately my longest lens was a 300mm, which with a 4/3rds sensor effectively becomes 600mm. Even so, I had to do some heavy cropping, resulting in images that are barely 2 megapixels in resolution. I shot a bracketed series of exposures (7 in 1EV steps), with my base exposure being around 1/60s at f/8, ISO 200. They were then HDR merged in Photo (as you can see in the video) and tone mapped/tweaked further. Look forward to seeing your shots! James
  2. Going through my first panoramas from 2003 / 2004 from my first dSLR. I screwed up so badly then with overlap, zoom lens nudging (the lens didn't have a proper zoom stopping mechanism, had to hold it tight) that so far every tool I tried made a mess of it. Affinity Photo barely made any mess. One branch didn't match, easy fix. Few smaller ones I had to paint over and the blurry leaves can't be helped but aren't much of a distraction. I'm just glad to finally have a chance to do them without spending days on end. 500px: https://500px.com/photo/182113985 Moving pan: https://www.instagram.com/p/BMkndzDDDnr/
  3. I wonder if it is available somewhere, but it will be great for long time Photoshop users to see a feature mapping to Affinity Photo. I was able to find some features by hunt-and-peck but others either eluded me or are not there in Affinity Photo. I am a keyboard command fan and some of the commands seem to map to AP but some do not. These will make the transition from PS to AP easier and a more positive experience, at least for me. Mind you, I am not asking for a full feature set of Affinity Photo but a feature mapping between it and Photoshop.
  4. Feature Request: Brush - Selection General: Spacing: at the moment the maximum is 200%, allow a maximum up to 1000% Dynamics: Scatter X / Y: at the moment maximum is 400%. allow a maximum up to 2000%

  7. I've reated an A3 poster for a series of conferences here in my province. I've used Affinity Photo to create the montage. Here's the work and the making of.
  8. I am using Affinity photo version 1.4.3. I can see Particleshop plugin in the filters toolbar. Unfortunately, Affinity photo crashes every time I tried to click Filters/plugins/painter/Particleshop. I have attached a screenshot of my setup. Can someone tell me if my setup is correct? Does anyone have any luck with Particleshop plugins?
  9. This is my first work at Affinity Photo for Windows. Testing the tools and colors effects. It isn't a perfect work, just a training!
  10. Hi! My first post here, so sorry for being possibly more verbose than I should be in this forum. I am quite excited about finally getting more than decent photo editing software for affordable price and running in Windows (Linux would be fine too!). I am mostly Linux guy, but I still keep Windows for laptops (better power management) and some multimedia matters like running Reaper DAW (it's supposed to run mostly fine in Linux via wine, but I prefer native and therefore more stable application's environment). I love the idea of Open Source, but GIMP is simply not there. In the past, ten-odd years ago as a teenager, I was "cursed" by playing with Paint Shop Pro shareware and later trial versions of many Adobe products, mostly Photoshop of course. I heard a lot that Photoshop is not a beginner-friendly application, but I always felt quite comfortable playing with it. It had its awkward limitations here and there (usually removed with new versions), but it almost always looked and felt quite thought-out. I cannot say the same about GIMP. And I cannot imagine having different thoughts even if GIMP was my first graphics program I ever used. Whenever I'm doing something in GIMP, it feels extremely clunky. Engine in the backend may be even decent, but UI is awful and usually getting in the way of getting things done (there are some exceptions like selections that became more handy than they were in Photoshop, at least in the past, not sure how they are now in PS). In the past i hoped that there will be some affordable graphics program with decent UI - it was called Pixel Image Editor. Pixel was developed by one man (Pavel Kanzelsberger) and there were some promising demo versions available. In December, 2007 I bought it in Christmas sale for $29, even though there wasn't any final version available - it gave me access to unlocked version. Application was buggy and not ready for serious use, but I treated my paypal donation as kind of preorder, encouragement to the developer. Year later it was told that there will be final version, but it never got out. I believe that pixel-1.0.740 was the last available version. In 2007 Pixelmator for Mac came out. I read it was PS-like and good. I hoped there will be Win version, because I don't have any Mac (or even any Apple device at all) nor I was planning to get such. I still don't have any Mac and there is no Pixelmator for Windows. Well, there is Corel Photo-Paint. I had a few occasion to play with it, but every time it felt barely better than GIMP, tiring, unpolished and upside down. But... Some time ago I read about Affinity products, sadly again targeting only Mac, but apparently very good. I hoped (again) for Windows version of it. Later I heard it was in the works and very recently I came upon Affinity Designer, which beta is already publicly available for Windows and Affinity Photo was going to be next soon. I registered on November 6 and four days later I got notified: "Affinity Photo for Windows is here!". What a great timing! :) So today I finally played with AP a bit and I very like what I got. I would like to preorder it already! AP didn't crash even once during a few hours I had it opened and used in various ways (I managed to crash AD somehow quite fast, even though it is much more advanced in terms of releasing stage, being RC9). There are many rough edges in terms of user experience (I hope to write about them in separate post(s) in AP for Windows forum later, hopefully tomorrow), but overall application seems mature, polished, snappy, and well-thought-out. I don't have any serious work to share with community here, I guess I just wanted to express how I am happy with AP available on Windows. Anyway, here are some of my stages of using basic tools and functions available in AP on image I found on internet. They were exported as High Quality (85%) JPEGs.

With the help of Tone Mapping persona and good predefined presets I got there quite easily, I think. Warning! Apparently Google Chrome (unlike Internet Explorer [at least v11 I am using]) doesn't handle ICC properly (Adobe RGB (1998) is used here), so you may want to download images and view them locally in some better viewer (like XnViewMP with ICC turned on, or HoneyView), otherwise only last image may look good for you. (I have to add that I am not a photographer, illustrator or graphic designer, I simply like to play with images sometimes.)
  11. Hi, in diesem Affinity Photo Tutorial zeige ich aus der Serie Foto Optimierung wie man das Foto verbessern kann. Hier geht es nicht um große Effekte, sondern um viele kleine Verbesserungen, die dann hoffentlich für ein besseres Ergebnis sorgen. Es geht um eine Gegenlichtaufnahme mit Lens Flare. Ich benutze hier das HDR-Verfahren. Ohne die noch folgende HDR Persona. Viel Spaß wünscht Euch Euer Jack In this Affinity Photo Tutorial, I show you from my serie photo optimization how to improve a photo. There are no great effects, but many details which hopefully improve the result. This is a photo against the sun with lens flare. I use the HDR method. Without the upcoming HDR Persona Have fun your Jack Foto / photo: eigenes / self made Link to YouTube Tutorial
  12. I've been using AP in conjunction with C1 (Capture One) since AP was in (original) beta. I use C1 for RAW conversion and initial color grading. I just like the way RAW looks in C1 compared to other converters. The other big reason is the color balance tool for color grading. There just isn't a visual tool like this in other editors. I then bring the image in to AP for skin retouching (and lint lol) and final touches including sharpening, grain, a color overlay and vignette. I love the fact that the current beta has a true color picker tool for frequency separation work where you can select a 3x3 or 5x5, instead of 1x1. Anyhow, here is my latest edit showing after C1 conversion and the final image. Before anyone critiques the pose, I'm aware of the folds under the arm and bra. Not posting for that purpose, just showing edits.
  13. An exercise in vector illustration using AP instead of AD. A spoof children's book cover illustration. In this case, I drew out the sketch on screen as well, using the brush tool. Usually I'd start with a pencil and paper.
  14. All, I am new to Affinity Photo and was attempting to use the crop tool to straighten the horizon and adjust verticals. The horizontal tool bar is not displayed to show the straighten command and I have a similar problem with the brush tool to increase its size. Is there a tool bar command to activate, please help. Kind Regards.

    Photo ~vs~ Gimp

    Here's a little comparison I did between Gimp and Photo. Photo loads in appox 2 seconds Gimp (latest build for Mac) Appox: 36 sec. Sizes are in the little graphic: I should add: MacBook Pro Retina, Mid 2012 15 in. OS X 10.11.6,
  16. Hello, I am having an issue when I save my settings as a preset, the white balance never saves with it. I always have to manually edit the white balance. Also, when working with another image, when I begin to adjust the white balance, it is based off of the adjustment from the previous image and not the current one. Will these issues be fixed in the next update?
  17. Hey there, today I worked with the common rectangular selection and was wondering if there’s a way to move the selection while creating it. Situation was I wanted to select a specific area and missed it by one pixel at the top only … I'm used to hold down the spacebar as a modification key and move/adjusting the its position it while creating it as long as the key is pressed. I mostly used it for rectangular, circular and the column selections. Would be a nice addition, so one would save an additional step in creating the selection by drawing another rectangle over the existing one or even create a new one while zoomed in. What do you guys think? :) Cheers Dennis

    My first AD/AP painting

    I've gotta say I bought Paolo Limoncelli's DAUB brushes, and they were worth it. Love them to bits, love AP too, though it still feels sluggish with large images on a 16 GB Macbook pro, which isn't that awesome. But nevertheless, pretty cool ! Somehow though I feel as if AD's pixel persona is better at digital painting than AP's. Probably because AP has no eyedropper tool. Also, the alt-click colorpicker doesn't feel great at all... needs some polishing. Anyways, bickering aside, here's what I managed to create. :) It's not really great, but I did learn some stuff doing it, since I didn't skip the initial "construction" phase of drawing lines and marking proportions. I'm trying to learn digital paiting for some time now, and somehow I've got problems because I always end up comparing myself with people who've been at it for years. It's stupid, but It's the only way I know how to scale, and because I think it helps me get better faster. The downside is that I always feel bad about what I do.
  19. I installed the update 1.4.3 Affinity Photo and after Osx Sierra iMac number of C17K2BJZDNCR series, now Affinity Photo has an abnormal memory consumption, fails to save a simple image with 12Mb graphic file consists of five active levels, I can be exported with great difficulty. I reinstalled A Photo Osx and Sierra but things have not improved.
  20. Hi, in diesem Affinity Photo Tutorial zeige ich aus der Serie Affinity Photo Foto Optimierung wie man das Foto Staffelhintergrund verbessern kann. Hier geht es nicht um große Effekte, sondern um viele kleine Verbesserungen, die dann hoffentlich für ein besseres Ergebnis sorgen. Es geht darum, eine Tiefe im Foto zu vermitteln. Durch Dunst in den Tälern. Außerdem war das Original diesig. Ein typisches Problem bei Landschaftsaufnahmen mit großem Teleobjektiv. Den Dunst gilt es, zunächst zu entfernen. In this Affinity Photo Tutorial, I show you from my serie photo optimization how to improve a photo. There are no great effects, but many details which hopefully improve the result. In this landscape photo, I show how to improve a background with haze and dust from valley to valley. Viel Spaß / have fun Ciao Jack Foto / photo: eigenes / self made YouTube-Video

  22. Final concept art for client's top-down JRPG game. All work done with Affinity Photo. You can see more of these concepts and some of my process on my Artstation profile. Enjoy!
  23. There is a photoshop plugin called Magic Picker ( http://anastasiy.com/magicpicker). One of its key features is Tone Locking. Basically, it let you change the tone without affecting the relative lighting, as showed in this video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zAfu7xE-Jw ). Super useful in digital painting, photo editing, color palette creation and pretty much all kind of work that need a good color consistency.
  24. Final concept art for client's top-down JRPG game, Luminare Saga. Created using Affinity Photo. You can see more of these concepts and some of my process on my Artstation profile. Enjoy!
  25. Apologies if this has been asked before, I did look a bit. I'm just trying to create a shape of a specific size I.E. rectangle the size of 1920x1080. All help appreciated.
