  1. Is it possible to make use of macros developing RAW photos in Develop Persona? "Macro" appears in studio only in Photo Persona.
  2. Hi guys I'm an amateur photographer from Italy. I'm 21 years old and I'm beggining my journey with Affinity Photo. I would like to have some impartial Advice about this photo I shot few days ago. I post produced this raising the contrast and using my brush to give a little bit of clarity. I raised the shadows and I used the brush to be more precise raising them only in particular parts of the image. At the end I used a Green Fill Layer (with 4% opacity and soft light fusion mode ) to highlight and "give more importance" to the green part of the image. I shot this photo with a Nikon D3100 with a 55mm Micro-Nikkor f/2.8. f 2.8 / ISO 400/ 1/200 Bee's head was a little bit out of focus (I Even raised the Details, Radius 5% and Amount 100%)
  3. It would really help speed up my workflow if it was possible to record macros on the iPad version of Affinity Photo. I'm really hoping to see this feature in the next updates.
  4. My first test on focus stack. The speed of processing was impressive since the working space was set to prophoto-16 bit. It took only a few minutes to complete 25 images alignment and stacking. To compare, one single frame and the final stacked image are enclosed. Only minimal editing (curves and USM) is done on the stack. The output is very good. Soon I will be testing with 70 to 160 images taken with microscope objectives. Camera- Nikon D3100, Lens Tamron 90mm Macro, f18, 1/3 sec, ISO 200. This is the final stack. The image below is one of the 25 frames.
  5. Hi, Since I'm using APhoto for retouching, I though that it would not hurt to record a macro to automatize a few steps. I create a new layer, fine... I wish to move it, no way... I wish to change its colour, no way... well, I'm already stuck. Or, is there any trick I do not know ? Thanks, Patrick
  6. In short, Affinity Photo develops my RGB monochromatic images as RED when using the Auto-Colors tool, which breaks my processing macro for handling images SOOC. I've attached a sample example JPG from my Fuji X-S1, and the file as batched with equivalent (with exception of Auto-color which does not exist in PhotoPlus x8) SOOC workflows. I don't know an answer on how to address the case of what should be monochromatic images having (stupidly?) auto-color run against them, but I feel like this should be more robust. The alternative is I have to make another batch processing macro and run that only against monochromatic images, which sort of defeats the purpose of batching to begin with if I have to sift through files and take them out one by one.

  7. Hi, i have built some macros. Affinity Photo is showing me a "Generating Preview" window when i start the macro. After approving the dialog box the macros fulfills the task. This takes two times the time. I dont want a preview to be generated. If it is showing unwanted results i still can go back in the history. How do i turn this feature off?
  8. As usual, nature design and macro (kind of). I did not make a frame (nor add a vignette) for this one, just diverse settings in Aphoto. P
  9. From start to finish in AP : again, Nature's design but tried different styles (the first one is an Euphorbe and the second one Crassula). Amazing patterns/forms, no ? P
  10. Hi Everyone, I have a lot of "7 image exposure bracketing Raw" Canon 1dx mark 2 files. The problem is that it takes a lot of time to process each photo. I have a macbook pro 15" 2018 i9 32gb 560x gpu. The questions are: 1. Are there any settings i need to change in order to speed up the process, because it looks like metal gpu acceleration is off (my current settings screenshot attached)? 2. Is there an option to create a batch job for all of my 7 part HDR Merge photos, so ill be able to leave it processing and come back in an hour instead of clicking every few minutes each time? Thanx a lot in advance.
  11. Hi, I just got Affinity Photo and so far I love it. I found a few tutorials for using the Epic Skies Macro that came with version 1.6 back in November. I fully realize that I missed that free promotion. I'm cool with not getting it for free. I'll gladly pay for the macro and the photos. I know that I can buy the photos from Uplift at this link - https://www.upliftactions.com/products/epic-skies-cloud-overlays But Uplift only sells a Photoshop action, not the Affinity Photo Macro... does anyone know if I can buy the macro anywhere? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Josh
  12. Just purchased Affinity for Windows and it says it comes with a free Macro Pack. I can't find any details of this pack and what it does or how to install it.

    Blue Hour Macro

    I've been delving into Affinity photo and the macros As I like to learn by doing I recorded a quick little macro for enhancing blue hour shots. It deepens the blue and adds a little warmth at the same time with adjustable parameters for denoise, exposure and more I thought I'd share it here Blue Hour enhancer.afmacro

    Rusty Boost Macro

    Photos of rusty motifs sometimes have a certain flair, which you can reinforce/enhance if desired. This Rusty Boost Macro just tries to do this in a reusable manner with some simple applied layers. LAYERS This macro creates two layers for you with corresponding layer masks: The macro makes first a copy (Ctrl/Cmd-J) of your background image layer and then applies a high pass filter on it (with a default setting of 20 px) and puts this layer into vivid light blending mode. You might adjust the layer's opacity to your taste here. There is also a layer mask applied so you can include/exclude certain image areas with a white/black brush here on demand. A 15% opacity black fill layer and mask are applied in multiply blend mode, in order to give blacks a slightly stronger go and darkens the image slightly. You can adjust the black fill layer opacity to your liking and use for the layer mask a white/black low to medium opacity soft brush and paint over the image, in order to include/exclude certain image areas from the black fill.

    Matte Color Macro

    For certain photos like street, casual wear, but also sometimes for portraits, I tend to use matte color effects if those shots have to underline some more urban style. It is an easy task to apply some matte color effect to your shots, though if you need it quite often a reusable macro is the way to go for this. - Here is one adjustable matte color macro for Affinity Photo, which you can reuse for such matte effects for either color or b&w images. BEFORE AFTER LAYERS This macro creates three layers for you with corresponding layer masks: A curves adjustment layer which applies the main matte coloring to the image, which lowers contrast and flattens blacks. You can use the mask (draw with a white/black brush) to exclude/include specific areas from the matte color. For example you could exclude in portraits the eyes from being matte here etc. A contrast boosting layer which allows to give back a little bit of the contrast lost by the matte color effect. This is as default a copy of the matte layer with an applied soft light blending mode and half lowered opacity. Again you can use the mask to remove or reapply certain image areas here. Finally a desaturation layer which can be used to lower the saturation of possibly still too bright colors. You can use the mask here too in the same intended way as before mentioned for the other layers. THE MACRO matte_color.afmacro Matte color.afmacros
  16. Hi, I’m trying to use some macros that I’ve created in AP but when I launch them from library window, it won’t start until I click on the macro several times, but the problem is that then AP applies 2 or 3 times the macro. It doesnt matter if the background layer is selected or not. Also tried with beta of AP but same issue is still present. The only way to make macros work is right click, select “edit macro” and then play it from macro window. Then it works. No matter the complexity of the macro, all custom macros have the same issue. Finally I’ve noticed that free macros pack from Affinity, doesn’t habe that issue. I was wondering if it’s my fault while recording a macro, but after looking tutorials and reading a lot of information I can’t figure out why is it happening. Hope anyone knows a solution. Thanks! PS: Using with MacBook Pro 13” late 2011 and iMac 27” late 2011 with High Sierra installed.
  17. Hello guys I need your help understanding an issue I’m having regarding file size. I’ve noticed that my files are getting very large. I don’t save history with the files and I know that Affinity uses incremental saving, and reduces file size after some time, or so I read. I’m using version 1.6.7 To reduce the file size to it’s minimum, I’m doing this: Open the large file COPY all the layers Go to FILE>NEW FROM CLIPBOARD SAVE the new file Size reductions are very significant, ranging from 2% to 91%. Let me give you an extreme example: Original file: 72,7 Mb (3 layers) Save as: 61,3 Mb (same 3 layers) Copy layers to new file: 6,30 Mb (same 3 layers) The problem is that doing this procedure to an hundred files, is very tedious and time consuming, so I’m wondering if I’m missing something, and if anybody else had a similar issue. Also I would be interested in knowing if anyone has created a macro to reduce file size. Thanks PS: I know that storage space is cheap, but I’m interested in using as less space as possible
  18. I am somewhat new to affinity but not photo programs, I was trying to batch some Cr2 RAW from canon to jpeg for facebook uploads, when i go to create the macro all I am doing is sharpening, I would loved to create the presets or macro in the persona ? and not have to go into develop just to do that, maybe I'm missing something, these are just quick changes nothing super important. I open the RAW and exposure looks good just needs a tad sharpening....however after the batch they are 1-2 stops darker, i can't hardly judge batching them from the develop to the batch for the macro original and batched attached I just don't understand why or what I am missing, well i'd upload the files but i get an error 200 so here is a couple screen grabs you can see the difference in the brightness but like i mentioned all I'm doing is batch converting to jpeg and a sharpening, even if i don't do the sharpen it still makes them darker
  19. Hello, First I want to thank you guys for the great tool Affinity Photo you have created for us to use. It takes some time to addapt to it, but it certainly works really good. I have an issue I want to tell you about. I am taking the product photos for an online shop and it's a big collection. I have developed some Macros, and lately I have been suffering from LOW DISK SPACE. Well, I started looking for the reason and I saw that the reason was 'My pictures' folder. I told you it's a big collection and I have thousands of photos. The Macro I apply is very simple: Exposition correction Curves editing Streightening + Square Crop Adding 3 guidelines and that is all. Should be simple. Of course, I need to keep the working file until the Season is over, just in case. But the thing is, these simple steps are converting my 5MB pictures into 50MB .afphoto files and it's eating up my Storage Space. Thank you for your work and I hope you will be able to solve this in following updates. Best, Anelia
  20. Hi there, I would like to partition a lot of picture into nine subpictures each. In other words: I would like to digitally cut every picture into nine pieces. And at first, using the slicers available in export persona seemed to be the perfect solution. Since the partition always stays the same, this sounded like a job for batch mode. I just have one problem: When recording a macro, I cannot define a slicer. So right now it would seem that I cannot use this awesome feature in batch mode. Does anyone know any way around this? Thank you very much and kind regards, Dreamer
  21. A really cool feature for Affinity Photo (APh) would be to save the history as a macro
  22. Hi, Iam trying macro in affinity photo to make iPhone designs using mock-up, please help me out for placing image and resizing the design. Something like this https://youtu.be/lWgF4uSkCR4 I am using affinity phote cause I have created mock-up and I get best out it in affinity photo. Thanks
  23. Hi guys. I need an advice. I know there is no such a thing like "Faux Italics" or "Faux Bold" in Affinity products. I tried to find the way how to push Photo to do that... and there is way. ITALICS: In Character - Positioning and Transform there is an option Shear to slant selected text = set an angle. BOLD: Add the stroke to selected text Fine, it works, I could do it manually so let's make some macros and set couple of possible options which I can use in the future. I was able to record the macros for both, even for combo "faux bolditalic". It's not a rocket science, macros are really simple 1 or 2 steps. But it might helps you, guys... or inspire you to play with macros and set some other interesting text styles And my question is: Is there any other, more elegant way how to do this kind of trick? Edit: I uploaded macros for you FauxBoldItalics.afmacros
  24. Sorry, I'm new here. And I've searched the forum, and don't find any answers. What I want to know is that if I deleted my default macros in library, is there any way to get those macros back? I haven't delete them now, but this question is so distracting. And I'm afraid to lose them, so I don't dare to delete them then try to get them back.
  25. A. Photo 1.6.2.97 Hi, a strange thing happened to me concerning macros in Affinity Photo. I created a simple macro consisting of 2 steps: 1. duplicate 2. transform ... move +38.8px Screenshot: I saved the macro to the Library and used it on several occasions without any problem. Then after a while it suddenly failed - it gave me totally unexpected result (the object was resized etc.). I checked the settings of the transform item and found out that the program had adjusted some of the settings! I did not touch the settings of the macro at all after I had created it. This is the screenshot of the adjusted/corrupted settings: Note: I was switching between documents and using the macro in both of them. I don't know if it is of any importance but it could be a clue. Maybe the corruption occured after the switch to another document but I am really not sure. I will try to reproduce and record this strange behavior but it may take some time. This thread is likely related to this issue: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/53164-macro-records-but-will-not-perform/#comment-268520
