Hi, thank-you I have recently changed to your fabulous range of software and am delighted with their capabilities. I am able to blend exposures using the tone mapping persona in photo to a standard I was simply unable to achieve before. I do this by using the overlay brush and erase overlay brush to balance the exposure in indoor outdoor photography. I would be able to work a lot faster if the overlay tools had more of the same functionality found in the standard brush tool. The functionality I would most appreciate is the ability to shift click to create / erase a straight edge. Being able to adjust the opacity of the tools and have them respond to a luminance range would give photo users all the flexibility they could wish for...
So this has been an issue for awhile now and I was hoping that the issue would be resolved with the latest update but it hasn't been. I've only noticed this when using the Tone Mapping persona in Affinity Photo. When using the Tone Mapping Persona, the flow from the overlay erase tool is terrible at best. When trying to erase portions of an overlay, you end up with a clear circle but when you drag the tool, the rest of the overlay remains there. You either have to vigorously scrub the overlay area or you have to single click your mouse or single tap your pen over and over again to clear the area. See attached images. Laptop Info: Dell XPS13 running Windows 10 Pro with 16GB RAM and a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-7500 processor.
Overlay erase tool is not active on Develop Persona When I click on the icon I obtain a circle with + inside but nothing change if iI try to drag or click again! Thanks for helping PP
