  1. I'm not sure if this is where I post this question but I was wondering if someone could help me out with the following: I want to be able to get this black and white style used by punk band, Rancid, in almost all their work. Is there a specific name for this style in design? I always just called it xerox DIY style. I've tried tweaking levels and black and white settings but can't seem to get it to come out looking like the image I am inserting as an example of what I am trying to achieve.
  2. In AP I thought there was a way to determine shades or zones of gray in photo. I thought I had used such tool before. But I can't find a way check it now. Can anyone know of a way to determine if photo covers the zones 1-10? Of course, zones 1 & 10 should be avoided. Thanks.
  3. I have a photo in black and white. It is rather flat in appearance. I want to use split toning to add tone so the photo is not so flat. I don't know how to do this. Nor, I have found any tutorials which start with a black and white photo. I would appreciate any direction, instruction or a point to a good tutorial.
  4. Dear Affinity community, I have a mystery that maybe one of you might help me to resolve ! I need to print a black and white vector drawing on a booklet. I made it with multiple black and white shapes or lines with Affinity Designer. When I print it directly from Affinity Designer (with file > print) it looks great : the vector lines look very sharp and the white color from my design is replaced by the color of my printing paper : this is exactly what I want ! I don't even have to export it first ! The problem comes with Affinity Publisher. When I insert this drawing in
  5. Hi, Please help, I am trying to turn a colour photo into a b & w pencil sketch, but I am struggling to get detail on the finished image. I want to apply this to nature photos, and right now I am trying it out on a kingfisher photo. I honesty do not have enough knowledge about Affinity to know where I am going wrong. If you can help, then many thanks, my fingers are crossed. Debbie Kingfisher_female,_no_bg.docx
  6. Bought Affinity Photo last year, but took a long break from it because of the lack of a stabilizer at the time. Decided to go back to the program yesterday just to see if I could replicate my workflow from Photoshop, which I got decent results from. Still need to figure out some kinks in the system before I feel like my work in Affinity Photo is up to par with my Photoshop work. Might finish these two if I feel like it.
  7. After exporting to a PDF in Publisher I get a weird area at the place of the shadow. If I use the PDF function from Apple, it is not in it. But then the page format is no longer correct. (Affinity Publisher MAC 10.14.4) 220.Adv80x120zwApple.pdf 220.Adv80x120zw.pdf
  8. Hi, I'm a new user of Affinity Photo and Designer. Is there a shortcut for setting foreground and background colors black and white like in Photoshop "D" key?
  9. In this video, We are going to show you, How to create Black and white to Color gradient effect in Affinity, This method works in both software (Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo).

  11. Hello! First to introduce me: I´m a professional photographer for 35 years, with experience in many cases of professional photography, developing b&w, color negative, color positive processes, digital photography from its beginning, colormanagement. Meanwhile I work in a public photo archive with 100.000´s of photos from historical until now. About 90% are b&w photos. Digitalization of these photos and managing them in a DAM is my main work here. Right now I try to get a workflow with applications out of Adobe. But there seems to be a bug on the interface between Capt
  12. hello, does anybody knows how to create a black and white picture, and then re-color some items in the picture ? (see example) hope to hear from you
  13. Every couple of years or so I visit the Bedfordshire (UK) Steam Fair and take tons of photos. This time I kept it down to just over two hundred; amazing self-restraint! I concentrated on unusual angles, detailed close-ups, and the like. This is part of the works of a paraffin (kerosene) fuelled vintage tractor. I cranked up the saturation a little in the first image, and later I thought I'd try it in mono. For that, I desaturated it and put it through the HDR persona to increase the local contrast, as well as the overall contrast. (Sometimes I find a better B&W result can be got by turning
  14. same day and time although from the otherside towards the sun behind the fog All done in Affinity for another get to know it exercise -- wishing I didn't straighten/level the truck now The yellow lines made a interesting test for various removal tools for several programs -- the first one I did with affinity work perfectly with the inpaint brush; however next time (this one) was not so good and the clone tool was required also . Third file shows the cleaned area . In the end I don't need to do as much but editing for me usually fiddle around until I'm impressed . The latest idea is to "ad
  15. I am currently working on a black and white photo. When I inserted a photo of a colored image it was black and white as well. Whats the cause of my problem and what should I do? Even the Inpainting Brush's usual red color when used is black and white!
  16. Just wanted to share with you something i've been doing with Affinity Designer recently. I'm in love with black and white these lightless winter days...
  17. B&W images can have many different facets and moods for a given motive, so it always also depends on the intended expression that they should convey. Here are a few (six) different B&W conversion macros for tryouts and to play with. - You may have to customize their settings to your individual needs, since not all input images are the same.

  18. We need a way to use black and white images as a Layer Mask. I am trying to use some grain/noise images as a matte, but my final image needs an alpha channel. Currently, I have to use PS to convert my BW images to an image with an alpha channel to use. The workflow isn't very convenient. I have attached the type of image that I would like to use as a Layer Mask. You can see that creating a selection from the image would be impossible.
  19. Hi All, Anyone knows what is a good method to convert color images to greyscale non-destructively? Except the Black & White feature. I'm working on a school yearbook, most of the images is groups of children, class group images and sport group images. Thank you.
  20. This was an image taken on Fraishthorphe Beach on the east coast of England. Processed in Affinity Photo on the iPad I was able to create a hi-key finish thus isolating the riders from the otherwise fairly boring background. The hint of the beach still exists in the foreground from the ridges and shadows farmed by the sand. The final step was to de-saturate and adjust the contrast.
  21. Right now, an Affinity Photo document can only be RGB, Grayscale or LAB at a time. However, there are several workflows where it would be beneficial to work in more than one. Examples are: Black and white conversion – you would like to end up with a grayscale image, but work with RGB data using channel mixers, HSL and so on and be able to edit these after the fact. The final image being saved as Grayscale is so important because it ensure that it ends up being separated into the CMYK black channel, leaving CMY clean. Applying LAB mode corrections like LAB curves inside of an RGB mode reto
  22. I'm trying to colorize a black and white using adjustment layers and masking. I'm trying to emulate the following PS tutorial in Affinity. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbveFU0JL4c His method is done by creating a color balance adjustment layer and masking out an item in the photo (skin in his case.) He will then fine tune the color by creating another adjustment layer and clipping to the first layer. He'll even make several more layers with different tones all clipped to that one initial color balance layer. He'll repeat this method for all the other items in the photo. I c
  23. I started using Affinity a couple of weeks ago and in general this is great to work with (I do not do many things with it) - but today I am struggling with a probably very simple problem. I just want to convert a picture into B&W by using the small adjustment button on the right and it always opens a new empty "black and white adjustment" layer - which seems to be empty and with which I just can't do anything. What is wrong with my approach? Any settings wrong? thx for help in advance
