  1. when I click on an adjustment layer there is no red confirmation button in the top LH corner, so not allowing any changes
  2. In this image I tried too mess with color selections, color balance, selections, Adjustment layers, tone mapping and tonal adjustments to create this illustrative look.
  3. While I'm just getting to grips with Affinity, and this may already exist, the biggest stumbling block I've hit is not being able to select the white or black levels from the image itself as you can in Photoshop - as in, being able to hit that furtherest white option, and then flicking on the part of the image you want to be 'pure' white. Not being able to instantly select the background as white when what I'm mostly doing is making the background of an image white for product photography is really jarring. It's not enough to turn me away from the product, entirely because I can't afford any Adobe products, but it's definitely turned me away from using Affinity Photo for any photo I have with a white background at the moment. I would definitely rather see the final product with that level of precision in the levels adjustment layer than without it.
  4. I'm struggling with some basic techniques that would be child's play in Photoshop. First, I cannot get Copy Merged to retain the appearance of an image or layer with adjustment layers applied. It strips out many of the adjustments and completely alters the new layer I'm trying to create. I'm having the same issue with exporting. It loses all the layer adjustment image integrity. Even the Merge Visible command doesn't work right. Finally, I have the same problem when PLACING the Affinity Photo file into an Affinity Designer file. It doesn't look the same as when I'm viewing it in Photo. Here's where I've discovered the deficiencies: I'm trying to create star fields and planets for sci-fi illustration using a variety of filters and adjustments like Noise, Levels, Curves, and Screen layers of scaled star fields (set to Screen to achieve the look of stars in different densities, size and distance), but I cannot get Affinity to preserve the appearance of the effects I've achieved with layer interactions and adjustment layers (see previous paragraph). If Merge and Export behave this way, then I have zero control over the adjustments and quality of my photographs as well when exporting to PSD, TIFF, PNG or JPEG. Affinity is not preserving quality or appearance. Am I missing something about how to work with layers, or is Affinity simply not designed to do the same things I take for granted in Photoshop?
  5. There are 3 places I can place an adjustment layer. Under the layer On the layer Above the layer What I'd like to know is what is the difference?
  6. An odd problem cropped up yesterday. I needed to copy a bunch of nine adjustment layers from one pixel layer to another. Easy I thought - just group select them and copy paste to the new pixel layer. I found to my surprise that I could find no way of group selecting masks and adjustments etc. on their own without the image layer. In the end I had to do the operation on a layer by layer basis. Am I missing something here?
  7. Please fix a brush lag that I found when I brush/edit a mask that the layer has multiple adjustment layers on top/with the layer?
  8. hello I'm very new to Affinity products and I might be missing something But there seems to be a bug in the adjustment of embedded images in Affinity Designer I am bringing in PDFs from a client and I need to do minor adjustments to the color of embedded images the adjustment layers work very well for this and the adjustments are shown on the screen (yay good controls !) but when I go to print the adjustments are not there the image below shows a major shift in color via an adjustment layer that neither prints or is shown in the print dialogue box this is not true of the "Layer Effects" which show up fine on screen and in the print (see attached image of an applied blur) (As an aside there seems to be no way to "open in" or "export image" just the image in the layer; which would be a work around.) any thoughts? or workarounds? WH
  9. Maybe this question has been covered somewhere else but I could not find it. Is there a way to combine several curve adjustments made to a single image (jpeg) in order to improve the dynamic range (HDR effect) of that image? in other words, in one adjustment, I optimize shadow detail, while in another curve adjustment, I optimize highlight detail, etc. I know you can try to do that with a single curve but sometimes, if there are a lot of small adjustments, it is easier to create several curves to address different tonal areas. I would like to know if there is a way to combine the adjustments so they don't cancel each other out? Or if there is another technique that I can use to obtain the same result with a single image. Thanks.
  10. Affinity Photo 1.3.4 (App Store build). I was experimenting with creating a simple high pass effect: Open image Place an Invert adjustment on top Set the blend mode of the Invert Adjustment Layer to Linear Light and Alpha to 50%. As expected, everything is 50% gray. At this point, lowpass filtering the top layer in any way (blurring, median etc.) should theoretically produce a high pass filter effect (it works fine when doing this with a duplicate of the base layer). I tried to do it using only the Adjustment Layer and no duplicate of the base layer. My first attempt was the blur option in the layer styles. With or without "Preserve Alpha" on, this did not have any effect whatsoever. I then created a Gaussian Blur filter layer and nested it inside the Invert Adjustment Layer. With "Preserve Alpha" on, this does not have any effect either. With "Preserve Alpha" on, however, this leads to the edges of the tiles of the memory manager becoming softened (i.e. each tile's alpha gets blurred individually). The image itself is not being blurred at all. See attached Screenshot. I'm not sure which parts of this are by design and which parts are bugs. Should applying blur to an Adjustment Layer, either as a Layer Style or as a nested filter layer, theoretically lead to the adjustment being applied to a copy of the original image, then blurred, and then blended with the original? That's what I would intuitively have expected to happen. If not, maybe the Blur layer style should be disabled for Adjustment layers and Adjustment Layers should not allow Filter Layers to be nested inside of them, because it's kind of confusing if they have no effect.
