  1. Hello, I really need to see adjustment input/output values (percentages) in the curves adjustment layer palet as in Photoshop This is the only reason why I can't switch to Affinity Photo and still use Photoshop I need to see values so I can correct to colors to certain minimal % to prevent breackoff by flexo printing Please .. I really want to use Affinity Photo and asking already 2 years for this feature
  2. It is great to have the ability to save presets in the layer adjustments, but I cannot find any option to load these presets :mellow: I read in the help/manual and it says "right click" within the adjustment window, but nothing happens on a right click. How can I load a preset???
  3. I have made adjustment layers to make my model's skin look more red, a fill layer with a peachy tone, and an adjustment layer to make cheeks look more red. I have ordered the layers as typed from bottom to high. When I group the layers together, I have noticed that my red skin layer does not respond to turning on or off if the fill layer is turned off (as if the red skin layer doesn't exist). When the fill layer is turned on, the red skin layer can be turned on and off. I have also ungrouped the layers and the red skin layer works perfectly normal regardless of the fill layer. Is this a bug and can it be fixed?
  4. Hi all, the link to the original post can be found at the bottom of this posting. I am reposting here as I believe it is a bug and no one has taken an effort answering the original post in the questions and answers forum, so hoping to have more luck getting answers by posting in here instead. To summarise: There is a huge discrepancy in the soft proof results between Affinity Photo, Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom when using Relative Colorimetric, Perpetual or Saturation rending intents on the same images. The differences are so large that in my opinion seemingly Affinity Photo doesn't even attempt to bring the out of gamut colours to the nearest possible colour based on rendering intent. To illustrate what is going on please see below image comparing the result between the three applications and rendering intents on the same image. As you can see the Adobe products are both producing near identical results while Affinity Photo seeming does nothing, making it very difficult to trust what I see when soft proofing in Affinity Photo. Also attached here are a selection of ICC profiles I've tested with (including the icc profile used in the chart above), different printers doesn't seem to matter either, so I am sure it's not a profile issue, rather an application issue. Profiles are Hahnemüehle and Canson profiles for Epson printers.

I should note that on some images I do get an acceptable result, (all depending on the information in the image obviously), however when compared to Lightroom or Photoshop there is still a slight difference and most of the times the difference are too great to ignore, at least to me, as illustrated in the chart above. My expectation is that Affinity Photo would compresses the colours to the nearest possible colours in the destination profiles colour space when using Relative, Perceptual or Saturation rending intents as explained in this Affinity Photo video; https://vimeo.com/152413642 Thanks.

  5. Hi, It would be really helpful if you guys add the Eye-dropper to the color picker panel of the Lens Filter adjustment layer. Thanks!
  6. Hi guys If I put a pile of correction layers into a group, the adjustment layers have no longer any effect... Bug or Feature? Appreciate any reply!
  7. Hi everyone, Is this a feature I was unaware of? Please take a look at the attached video. Notice that the affected layers are not inside a symbol. adjustment sync.mov Have a great day.
  8. Some strange behaviour I stumbled across today when I forgot to leave quick mask mode correctly: How to reproduce: 1. Load an image as a pixel layer. 2. Press "Q" for quick mask mode. The current layer is automatically deselected. 3. Edit the mask with a white paint brush. 4. Do NOT leave with "Q". Instead 5. click the adjustment layer icon in the layer stack. 6. Choose a random adjustment layer. 7. Quick mask mode is left and the selection is shown automatically, but 8. the chosen adjustment layer is not added to the layer stack and tweaking the sliders does not have any effect. I think the adjustment layer icon should not be enabled when no layer is selected or even better, the previously selected pixel layer should be re-selected after automatically leaving quick mask mode.

  9. Hi all I want to blur my mask. If I activate "Gaussian Blur" as Effect of an Adjustment Layer, it does not apply the effect to the mask. Checking "Preserve Alpha" has no effect either. HSL mask in attached image selected by Alt+Click on HSL Layer Greetings, Roland
  10. I don't know if the following has already been requested, just couldn't find it in the forums. I would like the adjustment layers like "Curves", "HSL" or "Levels" to remember the channel (Master, Red, Blue, etc.) I had most recently chosen to adjust. When I reopen one of the forementioned adjustment layers, they always have "Master" selected.
  11. Prior to the 1.6 update I was able to use the erase brush tool to erase part of an adjustment layer, like HSL adjustment (perhaps there is a better way to do this with masking--though I don't think masking works now either). Now nothing happens when I try that, nor when select an area and hit delete--and I'm 99.999% sure it used to work because I've done it before several times. Unless I'm losing my marbles...
  12. Blending-related wish list: Adding "Use beneath layers as initial Destination" button in Apply Image filter.Such button would allow for typical use case when you want to perform custom blending. Nowadays you have to: temporarily hide the layer "S" you want to blend, Merge Visible, unhide the layer "S" and move it below new merged layer "D", switch to layer "D", Apply Image and drag layer "S" onto its dialog window to use it as Source. Supporting presets for equations in Apply Image.It's obvious enhancement for better automation. Defining custom blend mode via Adjustment Layer (possibly called Blend Adjustment).It would work for such layer only when it is a child layer. Presets here are also crucial. Defining custom global (accessible in all documents) or local (accessible in current document) blend modes.The most robust solution for users performing repeatedly their own custom blending. In Blend Mode Manager there should be a way to see (in a read-only manner) already existing blend modes with equations (for blend modes expressable in plain equations). Blend mode definition should be performed using equations where:S (Source) = current layer [aka Active or A] D (Destination) = beneath layers [aka Background or B] In case of Blend Adjustment source would be the parent layer. Example of custom blend mode: Remove DR=(DR-SR*SA)/(1-SA) DG=(DG-SG*SA)/(1-SA) DB=(DB-SB*SA)/(1-SA) DA=DA(It doesn't make sense for truly opaque layer, of course.)
  13. I can't paint on an adjustment layer with paint brush. To verify, I started a new project with one photo, and added a Black & White adjustment layer. If I select the paint brush tool, and set the color to black and attempt to paint out any part of the image with the adjustment layer selected, nothing happens (same with white). Adjustment layer is not inverted. Interestingly, if I use the flood fill tool, it behaves like the paint brush should, except it paints everything. I have tried this on several different images with the same result. I am on Affinity Photo 1.5.2, on a Mac on the current version of Sierra. I have looked at other similar posts which verify what I'm trying to do should work, but there must be something I'm missing. The photos I'm using are all pre-processed in Lightroom.
  14. I'm currently recolouring some photos so I made a selection of a dress, then went to the Layer menu and selected "recolouring adjustment" from the "new adjustment layer" submenu. I did my edits but discovered that I left out a part of the dress. In photoshop I would have edited the alpha or mask layer but here that seems to be uneditable? I see an alpha with a black and white image showing me my selection but I cant edit it. The workaround I found was to create a greyscale layer from my alpha channel, then do the same with the other one and combine these two followed by creating a new recolouring adjustment. While this works I refuse to believe that this is the right way to do it. Everything else is so simple, I must be doing this wrong.
  15. This may be not be a bug, although by the logic on other software and features like "Sublayers" on Affinity Photo, I'm assuming that it is. I'm recording a macro in which I want to consolidate all the layers of the macro into a single folder, and I have a layer structure like this: And it works as intended, all the adjustment layers inside the MACRO folder affect how the pixel "Background" layer looks and I can hide the effect by just hiding the MACRO folder. BUT, as soon as I add a pixel layer anywhere inside the folder, even if it's completely empty, it all breaks and my macro edits become invisible, and they seem to only affect the pixel layer inside the folder, I've verified that my folder is completely visible with "Passthrough" as blending mode. So basically the folder is becoming the sum of all child layers and acting like a pixel layer on its own instead of just grouping. The reason I think this is a bug it's because the folder is not acting any different as if I were to merge its child layers, IMO folder are for structural reasons and only affect the way the child layers interact if the folder itself has its opacity or blending mode edited or has effects apply to itself (not the child layers, and if possible). And because if I wanted to limit the adjustment layers to the PIXEL layer inside the folder I should add them as SUBLAYERS to it, like so: am I right?
  16. Hello together, I have a problem to call a adjustment layer. At first I did create a mask. As last step I tried to call up the adjustment layer. (Crash) Somtimes it works and… At last step I tried to call up a gradient layer or anything else… (Crash)
  17. I'm using pixel layer filled with solid color with "soft light" blending mode to add some coloring. How could I do the same thing using adjustment layer? So I could save it as 3D LUT. I've attached Village.afphoto as an example. Village.afphoto
  18. Hey guys, I’m not sure if this bug was already reported, the title already says it. I added a Vibrance Adjustment layer for my image. When I type 66 % as a value it changes to 65 % right after I hit enter to confirm, same happens for 33 % and various other numbers, while numbers like 24 % strangely work. I can adjust the value per dragging the slider, but it's hindering my workflow a tiny bit. Just wanted to let you guys know. ;) It's just 1 % buuut … I’d just like it to be fast and accurate, you know? :P Haha, so it's true what they say about us. :D Cheers Dennis
  19. I saved a preset in an adjustment layer, how do I apply that preset to other images?
  20. I was getting a Failed to open PSD file. The file could not be parsed. I've managed to filter it down to the issue being "Black and white adjustment layer" which causes the issue. If I remove the layer the files imports fine. Keep up the good work. Thanks Will
  21. Instead of the auto levels being a filter for one time use, I'd like to see this as an adjustment setting within the Levels (along side default, darken and lighten), it would be nice to have it as a starting point to then adjust and tweak like any other adjustment level layer.
  22. First of all, great job with affinity designer! Kudos to everyone involved! Today I needed to open and make some alterations on a PSD file which I had sent to large format printing last year. I noticed after saving it in .afdesign format that the selective colour layer reverts back to "relative" mode. I unchecked the "relative" checkbox, saved and closed the document. Upon reopening I saw that it reverted back to relative mode again. Seems like it doesn't save the selective colour adjustment layer in what is called "absolute" mode in adobe products. It's a tiny bug, but it becomes a bit annoying when you have several adjustment layers on the document. Off topic P.S. 1024 px brush size doesn't quite cut it when working with large format stuff. Especially when tying to soften up the pixel layer masks. I hope you guys give us the option to use much bigger brushes down the road. Cheers, Haluk
