  1. How to increase Grid line thickness - Affinity Photo The Grid lines are too thin for me. In Develop Persona I Show Grid and the open Grid and Axis Manager but I don't see a way to increase Grid line thickness. Can this be done and how?
  2. Hello, the levels tool is one of our basic tools. We can not live without it. The PS's one is pretty simple und efficient. I would suggest two features for Affinity Photo's Levels tools: - Instead of a pull-dwn menu in order to choose the channel (Master, Red, Green, Blue), make simple button. There is enough space. See the grabs and modified grab. I just copy paste, it's ugly but you get the idea.. - Adjusting precisely the black and white for each channels is really challenging if you based your vision on the final image. Instead, it would be really easy to do if when pressin
  3. Hello, in PS, it is pretty handy to be able to copy layer, layers or even group of layer onto other documents. I would appreciate if you could implements this feature in Affinity Photo. Thanks for listening.
  4. Photo Manipulation with AP (Full HD wallpaper), do you like it? Free images used from pixabay.
  5. Here are a couple of quick composites created in Affinity Photo, changed the blend modes, added a lighting filter etc. 1. Elephant in a jar 2. leopard waiting to board Allan
  6. Hi, Has anyone noticed a difference in color of the raw file in AP and that same file in PS? How can i be sure i'm getting the correct color from the adjustments I'm making? Just curious because when i try to process in AP the images don't come out as great as i believe they are in PS. Thanks!
  7. Using Affinity Photo to color my scanned art is real dream and has made my life so much easier.
  8. Right now, an Affinity Photo document can only be RGB, Grayscale or LAB at a time. However, there are several workflows where it would be beneficial to work in more than one. Examples are: Black and white conversion – you would like to end up with a grayscale image, but work with RGB data using channel mixers, HSL and so on and be able to edit these after the fact. The final image being saved as Grayscale is so important because it ensure that it ends up being separated into the CMYK black channel, leaving CMY clean. Applying LAB mode corrections like LAB curves inside of an RGB mode reto
  9. Hello Affinity, Congratulations on creating the first real competition that Photoshop has ever had. Photo is a great application! I found a few small bugs in the UI. They're just minor annoyances... nothing major. MARQUEE Inconsistent Keyboard Shortcut Response - Select Marquee Tool - Hold down [Command+Spacebar] and click to zoom. - The first click is usually counted as a “deselect” instead of a zoom. When clicking quickly, the second or third click usually causes it to work properly. - The behavior is the same when using [Option+Spacebar] to zoom out. Shi
  10. To reproduce: Draw with the brush tool or otherwise generate a raster layer with some content Using the move tool or the transform panel, add a rotate transform to the layer Run a destructive filter command from the main menu (tested with Radial Blur) Increase the Angle parameter for the filter to have a visible effect With the preview active, click somewhere on the canvas to set the center point for the effect to something meaningful, like the center BUG: The filter preview will now be clipped rectangularly (presumably to a memory manager tile boundary) and not display in the extended area
  11. Affinity Photo only has entire image/document based cropping. It needs to have image/layer based cropping. While one can use selection/deletion (which is destructive) or masking (which can be awkward), I think a simple straight line crop tool (like the document crop) and a bezier and b-spline crop tool with handles/point control would be good. I'd like to see two features in that regard (time to suggest them in the Feature Request forum): • There should be a Non Destructive Crop • It should have handles/points (much as the crop tool does). That can work for both "straight lines" or on b
  12. How to crop an image on a selected layer - Affinity Photo v1.3.4? It seems the Crop Tool is a global function. How would I accurately crop an image in a selected layer?
  13. Using a photo from my last post, I wanted to show what can happen when you let Affinity Photo do it's own thing. The first image is the original RAW photo with no changes. The next is my attempt to learn a little more about AP and make adjustments to improve the photo. And lastly is the image produced by AP with no help from anybody. I used all four of AP's auto adjustments and I for one am very impressed with the results. Although it is a little on the cold side, AP managed to pull out a great deal of detail and correct a lot of the indistinct elements. As I said on my last
  14. This is my first photo from the new release of Affinity Photo. For those who might be interested, the photo is from a RAW file opened in AP, slightly adjusted and then developed. The image was then exported out of AP in 3x which resulted in a 219 MB PNG file with the image at approx 48 x 36 inches with a resolution of 288 ppi. I then squished it down to upload to the forum. The image is a macro photo of a small agate stone that has been cut and polished. Affinity Photo handled the whole thing like a trooper. No hesitation, no slowness, no fuss, no bother. I really like this
  15. Messing around a bit with watercolours and some blenders. I recently repainted this picture from scratch using the new Watercolour Set, using much more refined tools. Now textures are subtle but perceivable and the final result is more credible. Affinity's engine has been growing a lot since 2015!
  16. In addition to the current sampling settings in the Healing Brush etc., a "Current Layer and Below in Group" option would be very useful. One frequent use case would be frequency separation. I like to use two groups, one for the low frequency and one for the high pass image. I can then create additional layers in each one. For the low pass group, that's pretty simple since "Current Layer & Below" will work fine. To work with layers inside the high frequency group, however, I need to manually hide all layers below until I can clone/heal from the high frequency image only onto a
  17. It would be great to have global clipping warnings inside of the regular Photo persona. Photoshop has implemented clipping warning overlays as part of a few tools, such as Levels and Curves, but it won't for instance help you when you are trying to use the dodge and burn tools to get a pure white or pure black background and other workflows. Since I assume that this is already planned as part of the Curves and Levels improvements on the roadmap, I would suggest to make it a view option, accessible either from the View menu or in the Histogram/Scopes panels that can be used at any time,
  18. I would love to see something like what Tandent Lightbrush supposedly does (see this article) implemented inside of Affinity Photo. It is basically like frequency separation, except that it separates illumination and surface detail instead. It could be implemented in conjunction with a blend mode that would re-combine these two passes, just like Linear Light re-combines the high-pass layer with the low-pass one for frequency separation. I don't know if the algorithm is described in a Siggraph paper or something like that, but I believe there have been several published approaches to
  19. Hi, I have bought both A.D. and A.P. I didn't realize that files like jpg and png are by default saved as the original file formats overwriting the original files, until when I just started using A.P. (Affinity Photo) with simple touch editing---I opened a jpg photo; edited the single background layer without adding any additional layers; pressed cmd+s; realized the original file is permanently modified and the size of the file is almost doubled; I assume this is because the editing a jpg file is almost like creating a new one, and the developer had decided to give it a lossless option by d
  20. Downloaded the app! yay.. making my way through the menu, so I can replace Adobe. I was excited to read that it works with PS plugins. I use the Portraiture plugin and have upgraded it to work with the newest PS. I told AP where the plugin folder was. Tried to use it, and every time, this plug in seems to crash AP. It opens, I set it, and get no further. It simply closes the program. help!
  21. Hi friends, Now that I have purchased the Affiniy Photo Inhad dreamed that this one of my former questions would be answered by the working of the app. ut I am desappointed for is not. I am longing to get the selection outline being softened by a slight blurring, but as much as I repeat the action, select-shrink-invert selection-apply blurring....the result is that the blurring does affect the whole shape and. not the outline that is outside of the "marching ants" I have followed a moderator's instructions or tips and the hing does happen again and again, Can anyone have tried to do
  22. just purchased Affinity Photo from app store for $39.99 but the charge on my credit card shows $44.98, why?
  23. When using the Frequency Separation effect, dragging inside the document view will interactively adjust the Radius parameter. So far that's pretty awesome. However, dragging with the mouse will lead to strange and very erratic changes in value for the parameter. Dragging horizontally in a single direction, it might go down and then up again, which is really strange. I looked at the slider behaviour a little more closely, and it turns out the algorithm currently calculates the radius using something like this: Radius = RadiusBeforeAnyChanges + FixedMultiplier * distance( CurrentMous
  24. This is my second full image produced with Photo. Once again it is quite simple and, once again, it is focused on familiarising myself with a small set of specific tools. My previous image (the egg) focused on pen and brushes. This image focuses on vector shapes, boolean operations, fills and mesh warping. The snake was created from the rectangular texture shown in the inset above. I used the wonderful Mesh Warp Tool. This is an amazing tool!! The ability to define where you put the mesh grid yourself is just terrific. Whoever developed this gets my five star award ...... so if someone from Se
  25. All my previous work has all been in Designer because that's what I do, but I do have a real hidden passion for photography. This was taken in France a few months back on my iPhone6 with a Moment lens attached. Now we are out of beta, i'd thought i'd give it a serious go. My first piece in photo and although i'm pleased with the results, there is still a way to go and more to learn but working in Photo was fun. You will see the before and after, and what a difference 30 mins in Photo makes. Allan.
