    Tone Mapping Presets [FREE]

    I have made 10 free tone mapping presets. I have not seen any tone mapping presets for affinity photo so I made some for anybody who might want them. Of course they will not all work with every photo like all presets but I hope someone finds them useful : ) To upload them just click on the zip. file, then in the tone mapping persona on the presets menu; click "Import Presets", Enjoy! Thanks! Hanan Edwards Presets.zip
  2. It takes over 20-30 minutes to enter tone mapping or develop persona. In general performance is painfully slow although my laptop is well above the recommended specs. I'm on an i7-7700HQ 2.8ghy proccesor, Nvidia GeForce 1050ti with 4GB, 16GB of DDR4 ram, and affinity is on a an SSD hard drive. I've tried switching all options under the performance tabs, but nothing seems to help. Would really appreciate some help as the program is currently unusable for me.
  3. Hello Team Well i have couples of suggestions for what i call "The Persona Improvements". Well it is nothing as serious as the title is but more like me looking into things with different sight. 1- The Tone Mapping persona is lacking of a Global Reset button or function that allows the user to reset anything done there without leaving the Persona, i ask this because the Tone Mapping Persona have default behavior of applying the latest used Preset and apply it to a newly loaded picture, so having a Reset Global button will help us have a picture that is not directly changed and for which we can start at fresh either it be for manual adjustment or preset application. - Please Fix/Implement- 2- The Tone Mapping Persona to me should be far more than what it is actually and it the right place for us to process and handle very helpful and serious stuffs like LUT (and even more) but in a more advanced way than what we can do with the LUT Adjustment layer, there also we should be able to import/export LUT with ease of use. 3- The different categories we see in the persona would be pleasant if you could make it Fold/unFold. actually when i click say Main" or "Exposure" it stays unFolded and the only way to Fold it is to uncheck it thus disabling the related settings, So please make it Foldable/un Foldable but please keep the enable/disable for who may want (it is also necessary) 4- The curve category should offer more settings than the Adjustment of the same name (this should be the case for the develop persona too) i mean you should put everything like the Eye dropper for Highlight-Mid Tone and Shadow allowing us to do more and very accurate color grading and color balance. 5- I suggest changes and works done in the Tone Mapping Persona to reflect on the pixel persona as Adjustment Layers for he who may want that config but also it will make the thing more "Non Destructive style of work" also we should be able after applying our selection using the Tone Map Persona to return there and work from where we left things and not start at fresh again superposing this and that thus making our design or work "too much" ! 6- Possible to speed up the load of One Map persona ? i think if you disable the Auto apply selected tone it will be much faster and leaving us full control of whatwe want to do in there. That was my 6 points for a Better Affinity! Blessings.

    Brush overlay

    The highlights and shadows dialogue doesn't function on a brush overlay when using tone mapping
  5. Okay ! here comes the proposition or question. I've noticed everything or all tone map we apply to a pixel layer (let's say i merged visible and decided to apply tone map to it) that operation is still destructive. I mean, tone mapping is very helpful but would be great if it become non-destructive. Okay maybe i'm missing a way to do that but i always : merged visible and applied tone mapping from that thus preserving the other layers ! if there is a way to tone map non-destructively please let me know if not yet then please Serif, make it happen. Blessings !
  6. Hello, today I've been having fun with the Tone Mapping Persona and I wanted to share these 20 portrait presets with you. Of course, you can use them on anything that is not a portrait, too. Enjoy! Antonio Santos 20 Portrait Presets.aftonemap
  7. I imported a photo from Mac Photos App (by dragging into Affinity Photo). Tone Mapping Persona requested an RGB Pixel Layer. With trial an error I created a Rasterised Image and selected that and could get into Tone Mapping Persona. The presets seem to show what I wanted, but clicking on any of them does not update the image! why? A bug? Screenshot included.
  8. Hello! Is there anywhere I can download more tone map presets? Thank you so much!
  9. Hi there, all, Since the APhoto update from version 1.5 to version 1.6, (on Windows 10) some issues have arisen and some of them are resolved. But the "Presets" in Tone Mapping Persona are no longer available. In the folder %ProgramFiles%\Affinity\Affinity Photo\Resources\Affinity\Photo\1.0\User is "tone_map.propcol" in there indeed. This with a date/time stamp from the last day I used this. Also is in Tone Mapping Persona mode, than Vieuw > Studio the option "Presets" ticked. So the panel for Presets on the left of the screen is available, but no Presets in there. And then I do'nt know anymore. Any idee where I can download this presets, so I can import these? Or maybee better, can you export yours (i saw that's possible too) send it to me, so I can import it; if this is possible of course Thanks so far. Sincerely Ton Den Bosch The Netherlands
  10. Is there a way to apply the 'tone mapping' persona to a layer as and still have it be editable, akin to applying a Camera Raw filter to a 'smart object' layer in Photoshop? ie, not have the tone mapping be destructive and 'baked' onto the layer. Probably obvious but I just can't figure out how, Cheers
  11. Im currently working on and iMac with 3.06 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 12 GB of Ram, Mountain Lion. Loading, developing and editing Raw files seems to take longer it should. Is there a way to smooth out the process with ram usage in the preference menu? I tried messing around with it but no result, Tone mapping and HDR seems to be a really slow process as well

    Macros + Tone Mapping

    G'day, I'm designing up macros for batch processing 32bit .hdr files, and have encountered a bug. My macro involves opening the 'Tone Mapping Persona', selecting a filter, and applying the changes (before continuing on with a heap of other steps before and after). However, though the Marco works repetitively while Affinity Photo is running in that instance, once the program is closed, and re-opened, the macro only applies what seems to be the 'default' exposure boaster instead of the desired filter. I have tested this thoroughly, to the point where the macro is just open 'Tone Mapping Persona', selecting a filter (a B&W one), and applying the changes. And still it works only until the program is closed and reopened. This process flow is vital to my workflow. Are you aware of this issue? Is there any work arounds? Please let me know if there is an intended fix, would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
  13. Hi, I accidentally deleted the natural tone mapping preset. I have tried reinstalling Affinity by moving it into the trash from applications and then deleting the trash. Then I download a new file from the Aps page. However when I open the program the Natural Tone Mapping preset is still not there. I have tried this a few times and the Natural preset has not returned. Can anyone help? Thanks,
  14. Hi all, just downloaded my copy of affinity photo and having a look around. I'm experiencing very poor performance when switching to the tone mapping persona. With small images (500x500px) switching to the tone mapping takes about 30 seconds. With larger images (5000x5000px) it takes over 1.5 hours! Once the persona is loaded performance is fine. I have no performance issues with any other part of the software. I have in the past run, photoshop, lightroom, GIMP, Hugin and a few others on my machine and never experienced any issues when using similar tools to that of the tone mapping persona. This is not an issues relating to the physical hardware speed of my machine. This poor performance must instead be linked either to software/driver issues on my computer or to the optimisation and performance of the software itself. Can anyone shed any light on this please. I have 13 days left on my refund period so have until then to get things resolved. It's a shame as it seems to do exactly what I want. Thanks
  15. I have been using the Tone Map Persona to see what it does with a variety of pictures. I have also watched all the great AP videos on HDR and Raw Development more than once. For the most part, I like the results for both color and black and white, especially if I use the local contrast conservatively. I understand the benefits of using tone mapping for HDR images based on bracketed exposures. What I still don't understand is what is the difference between tone mapping a single image (starting from a Raw file) vs using various adjustment layers in both the Develop and Photo Persona. In other words, - Can I theoretically achieve the same results if I tinker with various adjustments than I would if I tone map a single image after doing some basic prep work in Develop first? - Can Tone mapping a single image be considered a kind of short-cut to get particular results faster than going the other route? - What are the trade-offs of using Tone Mapping (besides more noise) vs using the "traditional" workflow of Develop + Photo? - For which types of single images does Tone mapping work best and for which one it does not do as well? - Should I make different adjustments when I edit a single image in Raw, if my next step is tone mapping vs going directly into Photo persona? Any clarification on these questions would be most welcome. Thank you!
  16. 15 years ago, on honeymoon I took a set of photos (no, not THAT sort of photo, behave yourselves!) as handheld shots of the sunset, with the thought that one day I'd turn them into a panorama shot. Now, all this time later, with AP's brilliant Panorama mode and Tone Mapping / HDR abilities, I've finally got the shot I imagined! Thanks Affinity Warwick Fiji Panorama HDR.tiff
  17. Hi, the tone mapping presets disappeared from the tone mapping persona. They used to pop up automatically when I selected tone mapping but now I can't find them and I don't know how to turn them back on! Maybe I did something to turn them off involuntarily but I can't figure out what it was. Please help! Thanks!

  19. Hi, this is my first topic on this forum. At first I just wanted to say that I am very happy with your product and I am very surprised that I am using it that often. I did not expect that. I thought that Affinity will not replace Photoshop in my workflow that soon. Good job. I am using Affinity Photo mainly for postproduction of my 3D renders. I love to use your Tone mapping persona which gives my renders a nice kick. Lately I work with 6k and sometimes even with 8k images and I import 32 bit EXR formats. When I open Tone mapping persona I have to wait really long time to start it up. Also other tools are little bit slower. I want to ask if in future we can expect some speed improvement with this bigger image formats.
  20. Hi, I use a DELL T3610 workstation with Intel Xeon E5 @3.5 GHz 32 GB RAM, Win 10 with AMD FirePro W8100. The loading time of a 25 MP JPEG image into Tone Mapping Persona seems very slow. It's about 30-45 sec. I think, it's a performace issue. (If I switch to Develop Persona, it's 1 sec.) Laszlo
  21. Hi, realtime clipping preview for tone mapping does not work for me. If I use ALT+DRAG to move the sliders for black or white point, there is no useable clipping preview. Only for a very short time I can see the clipping, then it restores to normal view, while still dragging with pressed ALT key. Is this a known bug, or a problem with my PC? I use Windows 7 an AP 1.5.1.54
  22. Hi guys, I'm a 3D artist and quite interested in buying Affinity Photo. But I want to know how does it perform and work with 32 bit images like HDR and EXR. This is a huge weakness in PS and I hope AP can fulfill this gap for me. So, here are my questions: -Can AP create layers, blending modes, apply filters, masks and whatever I can do with standard 8bit images, so I can work non-destructively? -Is there any tone mapping tool in AP? Something on the lines of Camera Raw in PS? Does it work non-destructively too? -Does it have a Lens Blur so I can use ZDepth to apply DOF in post? To me it's very important to have non-destructive workflows as much as possible. Thanks in advance, -Eugenio
  23. I'm working on a tutorial for Affinity Photo, specifically highlighting the new tone mapping and HDR features. I noticed that the previews of the presets don't look anything like the end result. The attached image is for a preset I created myself, but the pre-built presets are also looking nothing like their end result. I feel like I would have noticed this immediately if it had always been this way but I just noticed it today after doing a lot of testing to make sure I knew how it worked.
  24. I have never been fond of Tone Mapping, until now, Most tone mapped pics I have seen before have always been overdone and looked really strange to me. Since I started to understand how to in using AffP Tone Mapping tools I find it very interesting and rewarding. This is one example...I hope you like it, Moos old farm next to where I live.
  25. Is Affinity Photo handling tone mapping easily and are any trouble spots?
