  1. Could I use frequency separation with guassian blur to get rid of wrinkles in clothing and other material? In photoshop I used apply image along with selected wrinkles and applying the guassian blur to remove them.
  2. Hi Guys, Every time I go to work on a new image, the Healing Brush & Clone Stamp Tool source resets so I have to change it back to 'current layer & below' every-time. I retouch 30+ images in a session so it would be an amazing time saver and speed up my workflow if I didn't have to do this same step every-time. Coming from photoshop this quirk is quite frustrating.. If this could be implemented I think many people would rejoice! Many thanks!
  3. Photo retouching/restoring. Client asked "See what you can do." Could use a little more refinement, in my opinion, but the client had ZERO expectations and was blown away by the results. He said where it was at was fine. This is the first real retouching job I did with Affinity Photo so it was learning as I was going. Never looking back at Adobe. The future is Affinity.
  4. It's a very important to have an amazing color to amaze your client when we talking about skin especially in portraits! Example: https://drive.bobarev.com/d/f/551673619992850756
  5. Hi everyone, I recently wrote a post on my blog covering my workflow regarding the steps I follow when I'm editing a portrait. I also made available a PDF file with the same checklist I use so you can download it. The post is available both is Portuguese and English. [PT] http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/lista-de-tarefas-edicao-de-retrato/ [EN] http://blog.pedrosoares.photo/portrait-retouching-checklist/?lang=en There are also other articles talking about Affinity and other free resources. Let me know if it was useful. Cheers
  6. Would love to make contact with anyone or all that are using Affinity for the restoration of old and vintage photos. Am interested in the techniques you are using, work flow, etc. I am currently using Photoshop CC 2018 and would like to move away from. Have been a Serif user for many years and have always had excellent success with their software. Just trying to short-circuit the learning curve to get started with Affinity. Many thanks to those that respond and be assured I will return the courtesy. Jerry Snow - Pop's Custom Products
  7. I can't find a thread for portrait retouching. If there's already, please point me there and remove this thread.
  8. I was hoping the workbook would go into a bit more detail. For example page 271 introduces using Frequency Separation and says (for Radius) "a setting of 1.5 px is perfect as it pulls enough skin texture into the high frequency layer (detail) without pulling through too much of the tonal imperfections". Another tutorial (video) suggests a setting of more like 8 px. It would be great if some tutorial video would go into depth on this topic showing examples and explaining why different values might be choosen. I tried "Adjusting Skin Tone" (pages 274 & 275) on one of my own photos and it "didn't work" (certainly it didn't have the effect I expected). This needs a bit more explanation of what they are trying to achieve. I was trying to smooth out some "blotchy" skin and thought this technique might work but it didn't.
  9. Hi Serif guys, what a great and powerful iPad app you've create, absolutely love it! I hope the picture could make my thoughts clear. When you do retouching work on iPad, Clone Tool/Healing Brush is a must tool, and you need to constantly change sampling points around the target area to avoid repeating patterns. Use the finger hold and wait few seconds, choosing sampling point, then raise your finger and put the Apple Pencil down back to the screen to retouch the target area is LOW-efficient and Inaccurate. Also, while using brush tool to paint local color, we need constantly sample certain color near the Pencil tip on canvas, that means Eyedropper-Brush Tool quick switching in a flash. In desktop environments, like Photoshop, the function key Option (Mac) / ALT (Windows) on the keyboard does the job perfectly -- press the function key, use wacom's pen tip to sample in tiny area on screen. We have Apple Pencil and iPad Pro now, but we don't have that Cintiq (or Intuos) experience yet. I just couldn't find an efficient method on iPad version Affinity Photo to switch between relative tools. So, can you consider adding a shortcut key on the screen? Make it a functional on-the-go retouching and painting tablet. Thanks!

  11. The picture that I captured had a lot of haze and dullness in it. So, I tried to retrieve some of those natural colours back inside AP Sharing the original image and the retouched version. Critics and feedback welcome!!
  12. Hi again, I took about 500 photos over the weekend of a private family function and I wished to know how to edit the photos so that I can achieve the effect as shown in the screenshot below: Is there a fast or easy way to do it without much fuss? And in a way that I can duplicate the effect either using presets in develop persona or using batch processing in photo persona Thank you
  13. I am a Retoucher. I use Blend if a lot in Photoshop to restrict adjustments to shadows or highlights. Does Affinity Photo have this function? Do any retouchers use AP for professional work?
  14. hi guys in this vidio i will show you how to retrouch model hope u like it :'( final: tutorial:(vidio)
  15. Hi all, Back in PS land, I use a lot of channel masking when it came to copying and pasting high frequency layers. I've worked out how to do the same in Affinity Photo for the first layer, but when I copy a selected part of the layer and paste it, it copies all the child layers. I've added the screenshot to illustrate this. Is there a way to stop this? It's pretty inefficient having to clear the layers as the number compounds each time I copy and paste. It's one of the few times I've seen the beachball appear while using the program. Thanks in advance!
  16. Hello everyone, I just make a big test of affinity photo and I find some littles things missed. - Invert layer mask like cmd I - put a D&B fonction like the split separation ( curve or 50% grey ) - enable merge all the layers fonction - right click on brush for selecting brush and size - Enable custom shortcut (for wacom tablet users,like the brush size) - add the small color block on the left tool panel ( for seeing wich color i use without the "color" studio ) And that's it thank you in advance , this is a great software guys Felix Barjou
  17. As a portrait photographer, I use editing software for retouching and portrait editing. I'm also a big stickler for nondestructive editing. I've only been working in AP for a few days, and I'm still struggling to figure out how to create a nondestructive workflow similar to the one I use in Ps. Is there a way to use the clone/blemish/patch tools on a blank pixel layer to leave the background layer as is? If not, I would like to request that feature. It's a deal breaker for me. I'd also love to hear how other retouchers are adopting AP and about your workflow. Thanks!
  18. This was a picture that I shot I had been wanting to retouch for quite some time. I am just posting the final image only. I know this model and dear friend. I know she would not want me to post a picture of her before so out of respect I will not. Anyway, I used the two techniques explained in my youtube video this week on Frequency Separation and the Inpainting Brush. Check them out if you haven't.

  19. Sorry for my "Google English" Little confused at first by the organization of panels (Tools, layers display) , I begin by gradually regain my bearings . Most of photoshop tools are present and incomparably more easy to use. I just tried retouching beauty split frequency , fast, easy ! I look forward to the final !
