  1. I am a beginner and starting self-tuition via tutorials. But I have lost the display that shows the Histogram, etc, and the layers of the image. Could you advise how I recover this?
  2. I have recently installed the trial version for Affinity and was trying to understand the basics of the program. When I launch the program and open any photograph, histogram is not shown on the right side. I am also unable to see the Filters menu on the top. Even simple tools like sharpening are not visible to me. Can anyone guide me in this interface with these three things - How do I see the histogram on the right side? Where is the filters menu? How do I start the sharpening tool? I am also attaching a screenshot of the freshly installed program on Windows 7 professional.
  3. I am a new Affinity user (purchased about 3 weeks ago) and am trying to learn how to use it for processing raw files from my Pentax K-70 which has a 14 bit A/D. My files are created as DNG in the camera and I have no trouble opening them with Affinity Photo. I watched the basic Raw Processing tutorials (maybe 3 or 4 of them). One of my questions is whether it is possible to have the histogram display the full 14 bit range of my pixels, rather than just 8 bit range? What does the histogram represent? Is it really the 14 bit data scaled down by 64 (The 6 bit shift between 14 and 8 bits)? If there is a video or earlier discussion of this topic could someone please refer me to it? This is so basic that I suspect these questions are answered elsewhere. Thanks in advance.
  4. Affinity Photo has a very nice Histogram so far, I can switch between each channel All, R, G + B All, C, M, Y + K All, L, A + B and I can activate layers and selections optional which is totally great! Thanks for that feature. But I think a luminance channel or option is needed in RGB and CMYK too, for minimum of two reasons: - I could only see and use the white and black tone spreading over the whole image - I could work without colors (incl. greyscaled icons) which confusing the eyes at work
  5. For Affinity Photo, add a histogram that pertains to only localized adjustments. For example, when I add a levels adjustment layer and paint that adjustment by unmasking an area after adding a black fill layer, I want to see a histogram of just the part of the photo I unmasked. A check box option to show only the local adjustment on the histogram would work as well. If this already exists in Photo or if there is a work-around please let me know. Thank you for considering this useful feature and the hard work that goes into Affinity Photo. Michael
  6. The histogram offers checkboxes for layer and marquee. I've tried searching for an explanation of what these checkboxes do but could not find one. When I have a layer selected (such as a levels adjustment), checking layer causes the histogram to disappear. Please explain what each does and how to properly use it. Thank you for your time. Michael
  7. Hi, I often have problems to read the histogram with overlapping curves. Its hard to see which channel is responsible for the white curves. I think Apple Photos is doing it better as it always shows the curve outlines in the channel color.
  8. Black channel is drawn on a black background.
  9. 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, with any of the tools available instead of adding it only to two or meticulously adding it to all sorts of adjustments manually. Holding Option inside Levels/Curves and on the Luminosity slider in HSL adjustments, Black&White etc. would then temporary toggle that option to the opposite of its current setting (i.e. on when it's off and off when it's on). Video cameras often implement the overlay as a zebra pattern, and you can customize the threshold at which it shows up. That's actually a useful workflow for other areas as well. For instance, you could have your clipping warnings at 95% if you wanted to see which areas are reaching a range that while they might not be clipped, would not show detail when offset printing the image. A preference to animate a zebra pattern inside the clipping warning, like the marching ants of selections do, would also make it help stand out when the image is visually very similar to the overlay pattern.
  10. Just tried stacking a few Adjustment layers, first a Levels to get my black and white points set: and then wanted to adjust contrast via Curves Adjustment layer (I know it can all be done in curves...) When I open the Curves adjustment layer, AD shows the histogram before the Level Adjustment: It would be more useful if AD showed the histogram at the current level of the compositing stack (after Levels is applied), not the original image's histogram...
