  1. Like playing with macro images, just not into expensive cameras. Took this at about 9:00 on a Sunday morning. Full sunlight, but the heavy growth behind this soon to be 3 headed flower literally looked black with very little adjusting. The L340 is completely autofocus --- or sometimes "auto-out-of-focus" might be a better description of this camera's ability. May post a few more of my macro images. I love looking for the unusual image. This one made me think of a three headed serpent. Thanks for looking.

  3. I can't get vector paths in Affinity Photo to use brushes. It looks like the support is meant to be available... Under stroke style there is an option called Texture Line Style but it dosn't appear to do anything differently to the solid line style. It has the exact same options. Is this a bug?... Or am i missing something here? I am running Affinity Photo 1.7.2 for mac
  4. I had a bit of time this WE and edited a few pictures in APhoto (1.7.2). As usual (well in the days when I posted more often), screenshots of living specimens for colours, forms and textures. The lens aperture was not optimal but I did not want to process with focus merging. P.
  5. I am working in Affinity Photo and have the workbook and am using the video library to learn the program. However, I would like more background on the individual features to help me learn the "why" behind each tool choice and the workflow sequence. For instance, I would like to know the pros and cons of selecting a particular sharpening filter and the reason for implementing it at a particular stage of the workflow. Although the workbook and videos are very helpful, it would help me to know why things are being done in a particular order and why specific tools are being used. I am looking for something that moves significantly beyond a "recipe" approach for learning the program. Does anyone know of any references that explain the pros and cons of photo editing tools, and the reason for executing them in a particular order? The reference does not need to be specific to AP only. Thanks very much.

    Before and After Image

    I create eLearning lessons for a research university. Sometimes that includes creating lessons on how to use certain lab equipment. There was one old piece of equipment and it was in a location that made taking a photograph very difficult. Normally i want to be able to have an uncluttered view the of the hardware and remove the background. that way i can place text around the equipment. Often I can find an online photo taken by a manufacturer on a white background. Since this equipment was so old I could not find one. But i did see a photo taken by another organization created for their surplus store. The original photo had a very busy background with logos visible through the glass and reflecting on the metal work-surface. I pulled the image into Affinity Photo and did what i needed to do and it looked good. I then decided to have a little bit of minor fun which included replacing the background, added lights, and a researcher behind the glass. I would not call what i did art. Just a small practical use of Affinity Photo.
  7. Official Affinity Photo Desktop Tutorials New to the latest update of the app (1.7), we've got a brand new set of tutorials that follow a more structured approach and are sorted into logical categories. You can access them by following this link: https://affinity.serif.com/tutorials/photo/desktop Please note that the previous thread is now considered legacy and has been unpinned. The videos linked in the thread are also considered legacy—they will remain accessible (albeit unlisted) but ultimately my goal is to produce suitable replacements over time using the new studio setup with live mixing and picture-in-picture. There's been a clear increase in quality of teaching and production values since Affinity Photo was first released back in 2015, and we hope to continue this moving forward. The videos listed at the above link are hosted on Vimeo. Alternatively, please find a list below with YouTube links: Basics UI overview Light UI Open and save Placing images Moving, scaling and rotating Layers Advanced layer options Selecting layers Mask layers Undo, redo and history Exporting Resizing & resampling Canvas resizing RAW development Metal compute Advanced Adding lens profiles Colour management Compression efficiency Channels Channels: Selections HDR merging HDR ghosts removal HDR from one exposure Liquify Stacking: Object removal Stacking: Noise reduction Stacking: Exposure blending Focus merging Panoramas RAW advanced development HDR/EDR workflow Macros 360 live editing OpenColorIO setup OpenColorIO baking colour space transforms Blend modes Blend ranges LAB Infer LUT (New: 18/07/19) Luminosity masks from layers Masking vs clipping layers Paste/move inside Isolating layers Corrective & Retouching Inpainting Haze removal Dodge, burn and sponge brush tools Clone brush tool Sky replacement Creative Tools Colour picker tool Gradient tool Paint mixer brush Selection refinement Fill layers Filters & Adjustments Curves Levels Masking adjustment layers Filters Live filter layers Displace filter Shadows/highlights Gradient map Denoising/Noise reduction Radial blur Clarity Channel mixer White balance Black & white adjustment Export Persona Exporting slices Workflows & Techniques Editing infrared photography Relighting 3D renders Hope you find them useful!

  8. Ladies & Gentlemen I am fairly new to AP and am struggling to create Aspect Ratio presets for my Instagram post images. I have followed the Instructions below but never get the option to "Create Preset" As can be seen in the screenshot the 'Create Preset' option is greyed out - this occurs if applying to an image or in this case a sample document. I would appreciate help with this. To save crop settings as a preset: Adjust the context toolbar settings. From the context toolbar, choose Presets, click the menu and select Create Preset. Type a name for the crop preset and (optional) choose a category to put it in, then click Create.
  9. Regardless of how long it took AP to stack the 11 images, way to long, the outcome was beautiful. I also did two merges then another stack all on an iPad Pro. There are three orange to teal gradients used and the lighting filter, as well as some painting. AP is so awesome and I hope soon that they fix whatever is slowing it down and turning our hair grey in the meantime. This is a jpg image, the original .afphoto is over 2 gb.
  10. My photo refused to open anything this morning. Ver 1.7.2.471, windows 10. Noticed when I tried to open an image "open with" Affinity Photo it started to launch then just closed. I then opened photo and it launched OK but then closed as soon as I tried to start a new project. I often leave my PC on and rather let the PC "sleep" than shut down. When I couldn't fix the error, I rebooted my PC and all started to work normally. Photo now OK.
  11. I just finished Parts 1 & 2 of my AP User Guide - workspace & editing skills. I'm moving on now to Part 3, Editing Examples. An aside. The completed User Guide is here in the forum's Resources section per a forum moderator's request. I'm going to put the associated Tutorials section here as well for that reason, but it seems to me that both are tutorials. When is a forum post a Tutorial instead of a Resource. I'm just curious. This example illustrates masks (mostly) - AP User Guide Part 3 OOF.pdf The example isn't something often seen. It's an image that appears to extend beyond a framed photo's matte opening.
  12. I've made a macro for frequency separation (my first macro attempt in this software, I'm an Affinity noob). In one of the steps I'm dragging a layer over to the Apply Image palette. When I reset the image and apply the macro everything is hunky dory. The problem occurs when I run the macro on a different image. When I do this the macro is using the original layer from the image within I created the macro, for the Apply Image step! I haven't used the Load Source From File, I just dragged the layer according to instructions displayed in the palette and the layers are named the same (they are named by the macro) There seems to be a problemen with Affinity Photo in this case, or am I just missing something obvious? I can't come up with a workaround for dragging the layer, I'm afraid... Fsep.afmacro
  13. Hi, I’m Relatively new to Affinity Photo (both on iPad & Mac), and have the same problem on both platforms. I hope i’m posting this question in the right place. I’m trying to make a mask that targets the sky in the attached image (including the small areas in the roof parapet and the gaps in the trees). I have: Created a luminosity mask (see image 2), that I now want to adjust from being grey scale (see image 3) to pure black & white l’ve created two child layers to the mask (curves and levels) and set them both to target the Alpha channels - see image 4 (I know I can paint on these masks to further target the areas they are applied to) The problem that I have is that I can’t find a way to visualise purely the mask when I’m adjusting the curves / levels layer. When I put the mask layer into ‘Solo’ mode - I can only see the original luminosity mask, and can’t see the impact of any changes to the mask that are caused by the curves / levels adjustments. Is there a way to do this, or am I missing something? Is there a problem with the workflow I’m using? Any advise, hints, tips or pointers will be much appreciated. Thanks..... Bernie

  15. Hello! When I paint with a brush and do not interrupt the stroke is ok, but when I want to improve, irritating white edges appear. It spoils the effect of work. I tried to find solutions in the settings but found nothing. If I missed the problem and there is a solution - please link. Thanks I deleted "Photo" folder in "AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Photo" and it's ok - maybe someone will need a solution. If you do not delete / move to another forum section. Correction - my solution did nothing... worked once, the second time (closing and open the application) no longer ... on the beta version is ok ...
  16. Help section says it can read .cube LUTs. I can choose a .look or a .3dl but the .cube are grayed out. Any solution to this? Thanks
  17. Hi all, the creation of a macro that changes the DPI setting only, leads to distorted pictures where this macro is applied to. All photos this macro is applied to receive the correct DPI setting but the pixel dimensions of the recording photo are applied as well. This is where the distortion happens. Macro was recorded like this: On loaded image select "Document" -> "Resize document" Uncheck "Resample" option -> pixel values become disabled (800x600px) Change DPI -> in my case to "300" Click "Resize" Stop recording and save the macro Applying this macro to a 72dpi photo with 1200x600px, the values become 300dpi with 800x600px. Looks like the unchecked "resample" setting is ignored on recording. I also tried to record the "uncheck resample" as a single step but it didn't work either, as well as deleting meta data. The 1 step macro is attached to this post. I am running the following setup: OSX 10.14.6 Mojave Affinity Photo 1.7.2 (desktop trail) Please have a look to this possible bug. Or if the problem is in front of the computer, just let me know how to record this macro correctly ;-) Best regards and thanks for building these awesome apps! Tim test.afmacros

    [AD] [AP] Misc illustrations

    Hello everyone, Here's some works I've done with AD and AP.
  19. I create book covers for different clients, but I would like to highlight a work. For the author Ulrike Schelhove I have done many book cover designs so far. A complete crime series (Eifel, Germany), another (Cologne crime story) starts now (in the fall). I created ALL DESIGNS with Affinity Photo. I want to show my working examples, it should not be a direct advertising for the books. I work with this software every day. I love this app and I do not want to miss it anymore. https://www.bodobe.de/zorneswut/ https://www.bodobe.de/buchcoverdesign-fuer-spannungsgeladene-eifel-krimis/
  20. Originally sketched a lay in and then did all the finish work in AP. Horror themed. https://www.artstation.com/artwork/k4dekl

  22. Finally, it's done: The User Guide's essentials, Part 1 - Workspace & Part 2 - Editing Basics This is a reference guide that includes links to all (as in every bit) of Serif's Affinity Photo text and video help material. In addition to the extensive use of links throughout its 71 pages, the footer at the bottom of all pages includes links to the eBook's Table of Contents & its Index as well as to Serif's official text and video tutorial material (the Index is a last minute addition - still a work-in-progress). No need searching Affinity Photo's Help menu and YouTube. If Serif produced it, you'll find links in this guide.
  23. Hello there, Lately I have been having an issue that I can't resolve. My Macbook Pro starts to overheat like crazy when I use pressure-sensitive brushes (even the simplest). It has never done it before and I can't figure out why. The only change I can think of is that I had to install adobe CC and dropbox for work but when I use Affinity they are both inactive. I mainly use Affinity for illustration and I have uploaded a short video showing 2 different performance settings that both lead to overheat in seconds (and you can also see the lag on the line). Video: Can anyone shine a light on this issue? Thanks!
  24. My PC is a laptop! Are there any "tweakings" I can make hen using Affinity Photo? The Processor is Intel(R) Core(TM)i7-4800MQ CPU 2.7GHz, Graphics NVIDIA Quadro Kw2100M. When I look at the NVIDIA control panel I am offered numerous settings etc and I become easily confused! The windows 7 Pro x64 score is 7.2 which I believe is good? Some advice would be appreictaed please. VMT Mike PS Further back ground to my question. After booting up windows I have to fix "aero" by using administrator and resetting "net uxsms" to enable AP to run. The error code for this fault always refers to Nividia as being the root of the proble! Nothing I have tried works and the reset is now my workaround. Is there a nividia setting I am ignoring?
  25. During the Affinity 1.7.2 update install on my PC running windows, I got a message that the update failed. When I tried to open Affinity Photo from my shortcut, I received this Explorer message, "The item referred to by this shortcut cannot be accessed. You may not have the appropriate permissions." When I checked the program file, all the Affinity folders and files were missing. I'm in the middle of a project and I need to access Affinity Photo. What happened and How can this problem be fixed quickly?
