  1. Hi, I've stacked 3 images and I'm trying to let some parts of one image "shine through" more than others. I've tried removing with the eraser, but the opacity and hardness aren't working. Next option was to use a mask, but here again opacity isn't working. Only hard-white will come through on the stack, eventhough in the small preview (in the layer list) I can see the mask is working as intended. Any ideas?
  2. The focus stacking is great: - Question: Can I use New Stack > Live Alignment > focus merge? I can't seem to focus merge a live group. If not then: - Feature request: Live alignment option for focus stack. QoL: Adjustment sliders: - Question: How do you reset an individual slider quickly, rather than the whole panel? - Feature request: Double clicking the slider header (lightroom) or right clicking the up/down arrows on the number entry box (3DSMax) resets the slider/number entry to default. Detail Refinement in the Develop Module: - This is sharpening, right? - Feature request: Unsharp mask/threshold for sharpening. Without this it's mostly useless on any photo that has blurred and sharp areas (dof/panning/etc). QoL: After selecting a menu with drop down options you can't transverse the options in the menu with the up and down arrow keys. Eg. Blend mode drop down menu. The Export Module: I understand the use of slices for advanced users, but most people just want a nice big simple export button. It should probably default to the slices pane rather than the layers pane when entering the export module and the export all slices button might need to be a bit more obvious. Just a few thoughts, feel free to disregard.
  3. I'm trying to create a photo stack with a shot of the moon, however, the file comes out purple. It doesn't do this with a single file, just when I try to stack multiple images, any ideas on why this is?
  4. Hi there, I'm having an issue to open a stack of Sony RAW files (.ARW by an A7 Mark II - is on the supported device list) to merge exposures. I attached a screenshot of the result. Same appeared when I first simply was opening .ARW files. This was solved by switching the RAW Engine to Apple. Yay! But I am still facing the problem when opening as a stack! Any help is highly appreciated - thank you! Cheers, André

    Hi my name is Gregor, I played with the new focus merge function in the Beta version of Affinity Photo. I'am very happy with the new function. Thank you
  6. Is there any plan to add the aligning and blending of photo stacks in this? This is something I would need to use the program. Particularly nice if it included tools to adjust resolution, sensitivity, etc. tools that are missing from the aligning/blending features of PhotoShop.
  7. The following short video tutorial shows exactly how to do in Photoshop what I want to do http://www.shutterevolve.com/landscape-astrophotography-noise-reduction-with-image-stacking/ Please tell me how to do this in Affinity Photo, or point me to a tutorial that tells how. Thanks
  8. Stacking Object Removal is already an amazing function in Affinity Photo. For complex objects in front it would be an extremely advantage, to have also the opposite. A demo what I mean shown with a not so complex object: 1. Background 2. Background and Object 3. After AP enhanced by new feature "Stacking Background Removal": Add this and PS is doomed. ;) Best regards, Roland
  9. Tackle down object in foreground (the lamp) by stacking works fine. With only two pictures, the bike light has almost completely been removed. Hot to do the opposite? I tried 1000 things, but now I am running out of ideas. Pictures are originally raw, but size is to big to upload here. The result is not as perfect with the jpg's, but still ok. Foreground: Background: The pictures are shot on tripod, so for stacking no Auto nor Live are necessary: Any suggestions, how I can remove the BACKground with stacking? Any help appreciated! :) Cheers, Roland
  10. Please implement a "Copy EXIF" and "Paste EXIF" feature, so that the user can manually transfer EXIF header information from one picture to another. Use case 1: noise reduction via stacking. The user makes multiple photos of the same situation and loads them as a stack into Affinity Photo. Affinity Photos does the noise reduction. But after exporting the result, the final jpg has no EXIF information. The use can hence decide from which of the pictures he want to re-use the EXIF information and can paste it into the result. Use case 2: Export Persona: you may export multiple parts of the same image. However, they are all made at the same day, time, camera etc. In both use cases, the resulting pictures have no EXIF information. This feature universally helps to close this gap. Best regards BlauerClaus
  11. I do product photography and focus bracketing or stacking is a must, a fully needed to be able to replace Photoshop. In the other hand color and sharpening needs a big improvement.
  12. Hello. if you haven't already tried the new stacking option in AP 1.4.....you really should. I have been trying out object removal, stacking a number of photos to remove any moving objects. I'm not going to go into the in's and out's here, do yourself a favour and watch the tutorial here The example below is of the BMW Welt in Munich and made up of 13 handheld shots. The second photo is the stack without any object removal to give you an idea how effective this tool is. Have fun trying it out. Joe
  13. When I do burst mode photo with my iPhone, this is visible as stack of pictures in Apple Photos. Could you implement an extension that allows using this Apple Photo stack directly with the Affinity Stacking feature? All stacking features would then be perfectly usable via Affinity Photo Extension. Best regards BlauerClaus
  14. Unfortunately, this is a double submission. Please remove it, I did not find a way to remove my posting. Best regards BlauerClaus
  15. When I load 14 jpeg files into a stack, each about 2.5 MB size, and save this, the overall .aphoto file has a size of about 500 MB. Please implement to not enfold each picture internally, but just link the original files and re-enfold them with loading the files again. This may take more time, but significantly reduces file size. 500MB for a project is too big, especially in combination with iCloud and iPad. Best regards BlauerClaus
  16. Hello, In doing astrophotography, these two features are really essential. I really love using AP for editing, but it becomes nearly impossible to with astrophotography because it's missing these two features. Especially because AP has features like LAB, it could be a really great tool potentially - and I don't think (at least the median mode) is very difficult to implement. They're useful for stacking photos - when taking pictures of the night sky without a tracker, you're limited in the exposure length you can use, because the Earth is rotating. To get a useful picture, you really need an exposure with at least ISO 3200, making very noisy images. The solution is to take multiple pictures and align them in post, and then use a median filter to remove the noise (which is incredibly effective). It's useful for other things as well - basically any noise reduction. There are perfectly clear stacks of images taken at ISO 25,600 or higher - and the median filter can get rid of people walking in front of a landscape, for example. My point is, these are really useful features for everyone and could add a lot to the abilities of AP and make it a very appealing software for another group of photographers.
  17. Hi, First of all, thank you! You've done such a great work with Designer, I'm really confident of being able to drop Illustrator for good (and this an awesome news)! I've been using designer for a couple of months now and there are still 3 things that I find disturbing / annoying: - I usually move the Layer panel outside of the right column (see screenshot attached) as it's easier for me to work that way. However, just sometimes, I find it pretty hard to find the correct spot to resize the layer panel once it is detached. I don't know where it comes from as it doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes it is just really hard to resize it. - Having the layer panel detached, it is frustrating when I need to change some Document setup and that the setup panel open BEHIND the layer panel (see screenshot attached). - Finally, and maybe it is just me but I can't get used to the color scheme you used when you have several documents opened. For me the active tab should be light grey and not dark grey, it just makes sense (although I don't know where it comes from). Has anyone done the same feedback? Anyway, thanks a lot for everything you are doing for the design community, it is really appreciated!
