  1. After upgrading to 1.7.0, the noise reduction filter is not functioning at all. Anyone else experiencing this problem?
  2. When I click FFT Denoise, the box that shows spectral density doesn't appear. Instead, all I get is a progress bar at the top of the screen followed by Affinity pretty much freezing up. The document history also disappears. When I used the tool several months ago, I didn't know what was meant to happen, so I didn't realize that this was unusual. However, I recently watched one of your videos on the subject, and I haven't been able to get FFT Denoise to work at all on my end. Note that it might just be because I'm on an outdated OSX (Lion) computer, but everything else seems to work j
  3. WARNING: for the technically-minded only! The Noise functions in the Filters > Distort> Equations facility are supposed to add (unspecified) noise to an image. The only description I can find of this is in the video by James Ritson. He first duplcates the layer and then uses either noise(x*y)*a or noise4(x*y)*a in his equation. This produces a grain-like effect over his image. The documentation for equations is limited. There is the Expressions for field input in the Help system which gives, under : Noise(seed/x,y), an explanation: Generate 1D noise either from a seed
  4. hello everyone. Q: why do my original images return to their original state after using filters (mirror filter). i change the new image name and save them. new images then revert back to the original image. how to preserve the changes to these new images? i did buy the book but they are sold out right now. it will be a while before getting it. thank you all for all your help to this newbie. your help is much appreciated. thank you, everyone, alison black
  5. Hi I just installed the new beta and gave it a bit of a whirl. so far the issues I`m seeing are as follows 1. using the square bracket keys to increase/decrease brush size is not working 2. redraw on blur, smudge etc brushes is very slow and resulted in a lock up 3.procedural texture needs sliders not equations. I can't figure out how to experiment with this at all! I suck at math and even simple algebra is very difficult for me but give sliders to visually experiment and this filter will become useful. as it is i can't use it at all. 4. Filter forge 7 works for me w
  6. Hi I want to apply Instagram style filters to loads of images there a plugin or a way to do this in Affinity photo? Thanks Dlabz
  7. Hey, new Affinity Photo user here. I'm really happy with the program itself, it seems very intuitive, and easy to get into, especially when you're used Photoshop Elements, which i used before. Now, there's one thing which i miss, coming from that software: The filters. PS Elements really had a big selection of quality filters, and, compared to that, the selection in AP really seems quite sparse. I'd especially wished there were more artistic filters, for text, or narrow object decoration, for example. Wonder if there's anything bigger planned in that regard. At the moment, i rathe
  8. I tried a few different settings but didn’t see any change. the tutorial video showed change as the dials were used. Am i missing something? Thanks
  9. I'm trying to use Affinity Photo to fix the nadir of equirectangular panorama photos (360° x 180°). In this case I'm using the source image from a mobile phone single shot add-on which generates a stitched image of dimensions 6080 x 3040. Fairly low resolution, but it does display correctly in various viewers like Google Photos or PTGui Pro Viewer. The procedure for fixing the nadir is to rotate the image 180° and then transform it from rectangular to polar. This gives you a straight-on view of the nadir where you can use the impainting tool or cloning to make the tripod disappear. You then re
  10. I have sometimes been puzzled as to why some filters don't work in Photo. I think the reason is often that the filter is applied to the wrong layer. For example, set up a background layer, then do some adjustments, such as a Curves adjustment, then do an Unsharp mask filter. Sometimes nothing seems to happen - and indeed most probably nothing does happen. This seems to be beceause fhe filter will only work on the layer below it, which is not the actual layer which is to be filtered, but is an adjustment layer. It would perhaps be helpful if a warning could be given if a filter i

  12. Suggestion: I'd love to see a "favorites" slot for filters. The user could mark filters and they would show up together creating filter groups that are easier to find than scrolling through the entire list. (Perhaps even several Favorites slots.) Thanks for listening.
  13. There's still a bug in scaling filters with an object. E.g. having a HighRes picture with gaussian blur filter (scaling with objects activated) and I scale the document, the gaussian blur radius remains the same what - of course does not make any sense - and the picture is wrecked ... the blur parameters still do not adapt to a new document size :-( Cheers, Timo
  14. Maybe I've got this wrong, but it seems to me that some filters, such as Unsharp Mask in Affinity Photo are not affected by spatial selections. If I mark out a selected area on an image, then apply Unsharp Mask and move the Before/After display over the image, it's not only the area bounded by the selection which shows up as having changed. Is this a bug or a feature? Clearly sometimes changes are restricted to selected areas - such as lightening, exposure etc., but it seems to be a matter of trial and error to find which ones are constrained by spatial selections. Sometimes in
  15. Veo que no existen filtros artísticos como en photoshop, por ejemplo, pincel seco. ¿Hay alguna forma de crear ese filtro? I see that there are no artistic filters like in photoshop, for example, dry brush. Is there any way to create that filter?
  16. I'm trying to find the equivalent of Photoshop's filter gallery function on Affinity Photo. Let's say I want a frozen ice sculpture look in Affinity Photo. How would I go about doing this without the filter gallery? Would I use custom macros for this?
  17. I am new to Affinity and for the most part I'm finding it easy and intuitive. I am, however, experiencing some difficulty in making the filters work. I make adjustments but nothing happens. I thought when I first tried it did work but I'm not sure. Read the help, looked at tutorials and appears I'm doing everything right. Any help would be appreciated.
  18. Applying a live perspective filter to a symbol in Affinity Photo causes Affinity Designer to crash upon opening the file in question. However, you can still open said file with Affinity Photo. Steps to create the issue: Create an Affinity Designer document. Create a later with some sublayers and make that top layer a symbol. Save the file. Open the saved file with Affinity Photo and apply a live perspective filter to the symbol. Save the file. Try to open the file with Affinity Designer and it will immediately crash. I have attached a file that is
  19. Hi, Is there a quick way to add a text or image to (a model wearing clothing that has wrinkles) and make it look real? Thanks in advance! Salah
  20. Today, I discovered a not so wonderful bug with Affinity. I was working on RAW files, which had previously been edited in Adobe Camera RAW, as I have been very disappointed with Affinity photos ability to develop RAW files. I do some basic editing, and then try to open a plug-in from Macphun, and Affinity immediately crashes. I push recovery file, and try to start a different plug-in and BAM! Affinity just quits/crashes. While there are some aspects to Affinity I really like, I'm afraid that because of issues like the horrible results from the RAW developing, and this on-going issue wi
  21. Would like to see a Texturizer filter and the abllilty to use PSD images as added textures similar to those in PS and Elements.I apply stock textures such as canvas and/or custom textures like wood or foliage to creative images.
  22. iMac, High Sierra. Yesterday I installed Nik Filters, I made a photo in Black and White with Silver Efex Pro. Today I opened a color photo in AP and wanted to use Viveza 2, the filter opened in black and white! How come? Cees
  23. I'm new to Serif Affinity Photo. I purchased it with hopes to replace PS of my photography bundle, I still use LR for the majority of my RAW conversion and processing. I tried searching for an answer to a problem I came across recently and couldn't find one. When working on a project, I saved it, using the Save As, which of course saved it as an afphoto file. There were steps I used in this project that I wanted to later recreate. However sadly it seems they are not saved when I reopened the project. History starts all over, why? I would think that saving a project (afphoto) would retain
  24. I notice every time a youtuber does a tutorial on the ipad version and they go to filters, they have to scroll endlessly to find the filter needed. Could you add a search function to this if it doesn't already have one. Every time I see a video it just screams to me that there should be a search field for this. I don't own ipad version and excuse me if there is already this functionality.
  25. I know that you can attach Curves and Levels adjustments to masks and set their target channel to Alpha instead of Master. This is great feature that allows us to change a mask non-destructively, but we should be able to attach all adjustments and filters to a mask as if the mask was a regular grayscale pixel layer. Also currently in order to attach Curves or Level adjustments to a mask you have to create it and attach it manually to the mask. Would be nice to be able to select the the mask - add the adjustment layer (or live filter) and have it link automatically to the mask.
