  1. Getting pronounced banding when using Affinity Photo 1.8.1 (trial) to view a gray scale 10 bit test ramp image. Same image displays smooth gradation, no banding, when viewed with OS X El Capitan's Preview app, which supports 10 bit depth. Using OS X 10.11.6 on Mac Pro (Late 2013) with AMD FirePro D300 cards and a Dell UP2718Q monitor. Wondering if Affinity Photo lacks 10 bit support for this platform or if it's just a configuration problem that prevents a smooth display of the image. 10_bit_test_ramp.psd
  2. Attached a picture. Its caused by wrong settings with high speed sync flash. wonder if there is anyway to counteract it by subtracting lines? Like generating a series of black and white lines of certain frequency and softness? (How?) filter frequency? Im not sure
  3. Hello, I created a background with a gradient in Affinity Photo. In the doc and when exported, I and someone on a separate computer I shared the image to can also see the banding on the image. I tried: exporting as a JPEG, PNG, PNG-8, and converting the file format to RGB/16 and RGB/32 (HDR). RGB/16 seemed to smooth the image more but there were still bands in the image. I also tried remaking the background in RGB/32 but the background did not turn out. The image is 1920 x 1080 300 DPI How can I remove the bands or export the image without the bands?
  4. I'm trying to touch-up my Drone photos, but they look horrible in Affinity Photo compared to Windows Preview or even Gimp Here, the original file has a very very smooth gradient coming from that lamp. But as soon as I open the file in Affinity Photo, the glow from the lamp turns in to blocky color bands.. It's almost like it tries to convert it to web-only colors or something because the quality is horrible. (below, you will probably see some banding in your web-browser, it's actually WORSE in Affinity Photo) Download this image and view it locally, to see it without banding. I
  5. One of the main reasons I prefer Designer over Illustrator is because of the dithered gradients... My quality of work has increased DRASTICALLY because of it and I no longer need to rely on a 2nd software like photoshop for high quality gradients. The thing is though that its only supported in gradient fill... Gradient Overlays & other effects like shadows, glows, etc. - Nope! So my request is kinda plain and simple... Why not bring dithering for effects too...?! I've faced multiple banding issues here and there... Please acknowledge if doable... (P.S. I've attached a sample
  6. New Photo user. I shot a panorama using my iPhone 8 the other day, brought the JPG into Photo to enhance and notice thin vertical lines in areas of consistent color - such as sky. Perhaps due to the phone stitching many images? Is there any way to eliminate these? How? Thanks for a great editor. The more I use it and view the tutorials the more I am impressed by its capabilities.
  7. There seems to be no comment about this from a forum search but the elliptical gradient overlay has a strong tendency to result in banding rather than a smooth gradient transition. Linear is not prone to this and radial much less so. This also occurs in the last beta. These are wonderful tools in AP that automate an otherwise tedious process.
  8. Hello Im a Photoshop CS5 user but want to do editing in 32bit so got Affinity Photo. I noticed than after exporting to png 24 I get colour banding, somthing I do not get when exporting the same file from Photoshop. Also note how the Photoshop png is producing a larger file so I assume there is some compression going on that Photohop is not doing? Thanks Dan
  9. Hello guys! I'm looking for a way to create gradients that are made of solid bands (show banding), as opposed to have them dithered. I understand that the dither is to make them look smoother. But for a particular project I am working on, I need them with banding. I can accomplish this in Photoshop. Its gradient tool bar has a Dither tick box. So you have the option. I thought I found something similar in Affinity Photo/Designer. In Preferences/Performance>"Dither Gradients". But this tick box doesn't seem to affect the Gradient tool in Photo or the Fill Tool in Desi
  10. Steps to reproduce in AP 1.6.1: 1) Have a pixel layer 2) Duplicate pixel layer 3) Nest a new Invert adjustment within the new pixel layer 4) Set blend mode of the new pixel layer to Hard Mix. Vertical bands occur in the image preview, see attachment. They move around randomly when changing zoom of view. The bands tend to occur also at 100% zoom, but are not present in the result of Layer/Merge Visible.
  11. Twice now I've run into an issue where trying to export a png with Affinity Designer results in a posterized reduction of colors, and I cannot find a setting to avoid this. In my current piece, it resulted in obvious banding of the gradients, and the reflected light being lost entirely. However, if I save the file as psd, then open that in Clip Studio Paint and save as png there, I get accurate colors and no banding. The first file is the png as saved from AD, the second is the png from CSP, and the third is the original afd so you can check and see if there's anything weird about it.
  12. I am getting banding when creating a vignette with a stacked image. I am unclear what to do based on what I have been able to find in help or online.
  13. When we develop and edit picture starting from RAW then very often we can lose fine color details during conversion to final color space. The typical remedy is to define working color space wide enough to accommodate wide camera gamut, but still, our final color space should be smaller so finally, a conversion is unavoidable. Leaving aside a discussion about what is real color, for sometimes complex reasons we can allow small color shifts and keep details visible. Often happens that color banding or unpleasant color areas emerge in final result even when you use 16 bits per channel and perfec
  14. For some reason I am getting this weird banding in the layer style I am doing. Any ideas? See attached.
