  1. B&W images can have many different facets and moods for a given motive, so it always also depends on the intended expression that they should convey. Here are a few (six) different B&W conversion macros for tryouts and to play with. - You may have to customize their settings to your individual needs, since not all input images are the same.

  2. A tangle of pipes, steel girders and ladders around the decommissioned blast furnaces, with nature resurgent in between. Duisburg Landscape Park around a disused ironworks in Duisburg-Meiderich, popularly known as LaPaDu. Developed from Raw with DxO Photolab and Postprocessing done with Affinity Photo 1.10.5 PS: On Monday morning, filming of the Hollywood production "The Tributes of Panem - The Song of the Bird and the Serpent" started in Duisburg's Landschaftspark.
  3. Hi guys, here's a new video about how to change black and white color into any color that you want in Affinity Photo. I hope you enjoy and learn something new from this video, thank you!
  4. I have an image that I want to apply an adjustment layer over. I want to keep the image mainly black and white, but then I want to paint over specific colors using the In-painting brush tool. For some reason, whenever I paint the image, Affinity just wipes out whatever progress I made, for absolutely no logical reason (I suspect it's a bug). Here's a video I want to follow, for reference purposes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXANeRRPBdw Any help is very much appreciagted.

  7. I am a B&W photographer. My RAW files end up a bit too dark and, consequently, lose detail. I am trying to learn how to use the radial gradient tool to lighten up areas. I would appreciate being pointed to a few good tutorials for beginners on this topic. I am not talking about using the Gradient Map. Thanks,
  8. I made this black & white picture with my Nikon Z6 (captured in Croatia 2019 ), DxO Photolab, Silver Efex and Affinity Photo.
  9. This is my first attempt at a black and white image, these are 2 of my cats. Thoughts and feedback much appreciated!
  10. Hello everyone, I have just been provided with a scan of a pencil drawing. The original was not very legible, and the scan did not improve it. Can we improve the legibility of this image with Affinity Photo? How do I do this? Thank you for your explanations.
  11. I'm not sure if this is where I post this question but I was wondering if someone could help me out with the following: I want to be able to get this black and white style used by punk band, Rancid, in almost all their work. Is there a specific name for this style in design? I always just called it xerox DIY style. I've tried tweaking levels and black and white settings but can't seem to get it to come out looking like the image I am inserting as an example of what I am trying to achieve.
  12. In AP I thought there was a way to determine shades or zones of gray in photo. I thought I had used such tool before. But I can't find a way check it now. Can anyone know of a way to determine if photo covers the zones 1-10? Of course, zones 1 & 10 should be avoided. Thanks.
  13. I have a photo in black and white. It is rather flat in appearance. I want to use split toning to add tone so the photo is not so flat. I don't know how to do this. Nor, I have found any tutorials which start with a black and white photo. I would appreciate any direction, instruction or a point to a good tutorial.
  14. Dear Affinity community, I have a mystery that maybe one of you might help me to resolve ! I need to print a black and white vector drawing on a booklet. I made it with multiple black and white shapes or lines with Affinity Designer. When I print it directly from Affinity Designer (with file > print) it looks great : the vector lines look very sharp and the white color from my design is replaced by the color of my printing paper : this is exactly what I want ! I don't even have to export it first ! The problem comes with Affinity Publisher. When I insert this drawing in my composition (with file > insert) in order to illustrate my booklet ; I can't print it in the same way. Either my outlines look pixelized (like a low resolution .jpg file) Or my white color appear slightly different from the color of my printing paper (a very light grey) and I dont want that. I just want it to be transparent and replaced by the white color of my printing paper. Trust me, I tried every solution I could find on the internet to fix these problems (different export format, bend options, "erase white paper" option...) and nothing works. If anybody has a solution I would be very grateful for your help ! Thanks, in advance ! All the best, Lanval
  15. Hi, Please help, I am trying to turn a colour photo into a b & w pencil sketch, but I am struggling to get detail on the finished image. I want to apply this to nature photos, and right now I am trying it out on a kingfisher photo. I honesty do not have enough knowledge about Affinity to know where I am going wrong. If you can help, then many thanks, my fingers are crossed. Debbie Kingfisher_female,_no_bg.docx
  16. Bought Affinity Photo last year, but took a long break from it because of the lack of a stabilizer at the time. Decided to go back to the program yesterday just to see if I could replicate my workflow from Photoshop, which I got decent results from. Still need to figure out some kinks in the system before I feel like my work in Affinity Photo is up to par with my Photoshop work. Might finish these two if I feel like it.
  17. After exporting to a PDF in Publisher I get a weird area at the place of the shadow. If I use the PDF function from Apple, it is not in it. But then the page format is no longer correct. (Affinity Publisher MAC 10.14.4) 220.Adv80x120zwApple.pdf 220.Adv80x120zw.pdf
  18. Hi, I'm a new user of Affinity Photo and Designer. Is there a shortcut for setting foreground and background colors black and white like in Photoshop "D" key?
  19. In this video, We are going to show you, How to create Black and white to Color gradient effect in Affinity, This method works in both software (Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo).
  20. Hello! First to introduce me: I´m a professional photographer for 35 years, with experience in many cases of professional photography, developing b&w, color negative, color positive processes, digital photography from its beginning, colormanagement. Meanwhile I work in a public photo archive with 100.000´s of photos from historical until now. About 90% are b&w photos. Digitalization of these photos and managing them in a DAM is my main work here. Right now I try to get a workflow with applications out of Adobe. But there seems to be a bug on the interface between CaptureOne and Affinity Photo. In CaptureOne 10 I export a b&w-file with embedded profile Gray Gamma 2.2. In Affinity Photo (V1.6.5.123) the settings for colormanagement is Gray Gamma 2.2 for b&w-files. When I open the exportet b&w-TIFF with embedded Profile, AP opens it in the Develpo Persona, shows the file extremely bright an assigns the profile for RGB to the photo because AP couldn´t recognize any embedded profile. I can´t rescue the file by assinig other profiles or by developing the file to what it should look like. If I open the same file in Photoshop with the same colormangement-settings, the file will be opened correctly without any profile-warnings. If I "save under..." this file without any changes, but with a new name in Photoshop and open this in AP, it will be opened correctly with the right profile an the right brightness. Any hints for wrong settings or steps in my workflow? Greetings Mikelike
  21. hello, does anybody knows how to create a black and white picture, and then re-color some items in the picture ? (see example) hope to hear from you
  22. Every couple of years or so I visit the Bedfordshire (UK) Steam Fair and take tons of photos. This time I kept it down to just over two hundred; amazing self-restraint! I concentrated on unusual angles, detailed close-ups, and the like. This is part of the works of a paraffin (kerosene) fuelled vintage tractor. I cranked up the saturation a little in the first image, and later I thought I'd try it in mono. For that, I desaturated it and put it through the HDR persona to increase the local contrast, as well as the overall contrast. (Sometimes I find a better B&W result can be got by turning down one or more of the colours in the Black and White adjustment, but I didn't need to in this instance.) And if you're wondering where this lot fits on a tractor, here's the whole thing ... (If you want to see the other 217 photos, let me know!)
  23. same day and time although from the otherside towards the sun behind the fog All done in Affinity for another get to know it exercise -- wishing I didn't straighten/level the truck now The yellow lines made a interesting test for various removal tools for several programs -- the first one I did with affinity work perfectly with the inpaint brush; however next time (this one) was not so good and the clone tool was required also . Third file shows the cleaned area . In the end I don't need to do as much but editing for me usually fiddle around until I'm impressed . The latest idea is to "add" another trailer to make it a proper road train second pic is the Oly raw file "dust" added with a texture brush Honest comments, suggestions, and questions welcome . You are also welcome to download and edit ; but it's still MY photo :).
  24. I am currently working on a black and white photo. When I inserted a photo of a colored image it was black and white as well. Whats the cause of my problem and what should I do? Even the Inpainting Brush's usual red color when used is black and white!
  25. Just wanted to share with you something i've been doing with Affinity Designer recently. I'm in love with black and white these lightless winter days...
