  1. Most (if not all) RAW processing software I have worked with so far have ways to remember settings and later continue the RAW processing with these settings or perform adjustments to these settings if the final outcome (e.g. final JPG image) proved to be not perfect. There are two aspects here which imho need improvement to make this iterating process less frustrating: 1. Saving photo-specific RAW settings (e.g. to sidecar files) Currently Affinity Photo has only one rather cumbersome way to achieve this: You have to create a Preset for each tab where you changed settings and if you re-open the RAW file later you have to load all these presets again. (Affinity Photo shows them selected, but this is irritating since they have not actually been applied. Only after switching to another preset and then back are the changes taking effect. - A small bug I'd say.) Most other RAW processing software either automatically stores or optionally allows to store a small sidecar file together with the (unaltered) RAW file so that if the RAW is later opened again, the user can continue where it left off. An alternative is Affinity keeping an internal database about the settings of each RAW file, but this approach usually fails if images are moved to a different folder or archived (which happens to all my images after processing) and Affinity doesn't know about this. 2. Allow switching back to real RAW processing from Photo persona Also when I developed a photo and then switched back to the Develop persona (without doing any edits inbetween, I should note), I found myself not editing the original RAW file, but applying further edits on the already processed image. This was a big disappointment, as it defies the benefits of working on the RAW file. This means for example that If I found out I applied too strong noise reduction or too strong highlights clipping then switching to Develop again does not help, because what is lost in the developed image cannot be recovered. Please offer the user an easy possibility to apply changes to the originally processed image afterwards. (Which means, that the application must remember the RAW settings at the time the image was last developed). Matthias
  2. Affinity Photo latest RC Sometimes the histogram in the "Levels" adjustments is not displayed. As you can see in the attached screenshot the thumbnail of the layer below is already available (sometimes takes bloody ages to build - and I realised alreay that the layer thumbnail needs to exist before the levels histogram can be displayed) but still the histogram is not displayed. The screenshot was taken 1 minute after the levels dialog was opened. Edit: BTW: 10 Minutes later the histogram appeared! Cheers, Timo
  3. howdy :) is this a 'feature' or a #bug? with more than one photograph open, & i select & try to edit the selected image with let's say text, the edit does not occur on the selected document instead a non-selected document becomes selected & the one which is suppose to take the edit deselects. this behaviour forces affinity to not be able to work with multiple images opened at one time. is this a feature or a bug? to reiterate, with multiple photographs open, a selected photograph never takes an adjustment, instead an unselected photo (document window under selection) becomes selected to take the edit. (an unselected photograph — not the intended one — becomes selected.) any ideas? thank you in advance macos 10.13.x affinity photo 1.8.3
  4. I have a question please about width and hardness adjustments in Affinity Photo paint brushes. I know dragging the cursor side to side changes width, and up and down adjusts hardness. But when I rotate the canvas (as seen under View>Rotate Left or View>Rotate Right) to work on a piece from different angles, the required motions to change brush width & hardness seem to reverse. They don’t remain constant relative to the user once the canvas is rotated. Is there an option somewhere to keep these motion commands consistent, relative to the user, for any given working angle?
  5. Hey, everyone. When adding an adjustment layer the presets expand underneath it. I almost always begin from 'scratch' on my adjustments, so don't often use presets. But more significantly I find that the auto-expanding presets just get in the way of my UI by making the adjustments panel list much longer and shifting everything down significantly, requiring more scroll-and-search because things are moving around. Is there a way to toggle the adjustment panel's expanding presets action off, as I really don't want or need them showing up every time I add a new adjustment layer. Also, if I want to add a second layer of the same adjustment type, say, 'Brightness / Contrast', (not a copy of it, but a second and different adjustment) I can't just click again to add one, or even double-click. If I even just click once, it resets the adjustment I just carefully tweaked, erasing my changes. I have to deselect the 'Brightness / Contrast' layer I just added, then click once on the adjustment which closes the expanded presets, then click to add a second Levels layer. Surely I'm must be missing something? Any help would be appreciated.
  6. I bought Affinity, but I have a suggestion: Make it available on Persona Reveal Reveal (Develop) the possibility of saving the adjustments we made to the photos, as in Photoshop's CameraRaw (save file XMP). So, every time I open the same photo, I can review or modify the settings instead of having to start the adjustments from scratch as it is today. Here is the suggestion! Hugs,
  7. Please excuse me if this has been requested. Please consider option to change Adjustments/Filters panels to List. The panel fly outs are pretty, but take up a lot of limited space on the iPad. Thank you.
  8. Hello there, today I stumbled upon curious problem. I made a few adjustments to final layer and whenever I put those adjustments into group final result is changed. Is this intended or I don't know... ? See gif below Using latest version of AP (1.7.3.481)
  9. I have a layer containing several vector objects. On top of that is an adjustment layer. I need to merge the adjustment layer with the vector objects but the "merge" button in the adjustment layer settings doesn't do anyhing. I also tried adding the adjustment as a child of the object layer or to a single object, but it still doesn't work. I have attached a simple file as an example. How do I merge the layer?

  10. Here's a common operation I've done in the past with Photoshop: 1. Create a mask for a layer 2. Extract the mask as a regular pixel layer by copying the mask channel contents to a new pixel layer 3. Use filters and adjustments to refine the pixel layer (I find that Levels does a great job of uniformly hardening edges, for example) 4. Select all and copy the refined pixel layer 5. Paste the clipboard contents back into the mask channel, thereby applying the refined mask I'm trying to adapt this workflow to Affinity Photo, and I've noticed that adjustment layers can supposedly be applied to pixel mask layers by making the adjustment layer a "child" layer to the mask. However, I'm not seeing the adjustment affect the mask. This leads me to two questions: 1. Can adjustments, filters, and adjustment layers be applied to pixel mask layers, as if they were a non-mask pixel layer? 2. If not, would you consider a feature request to have adjustments, filters, and adjustment layers (when dragged onto a pixel mask layer, thereby appearing as a child layer to the pixel mask) operate on pixel masks in this way? 3. Is there some other way I may be able to accomplish this workflow already? My one requirement is that it doesn't involve re-selecting and filling the selection on a pixel layer; while this is possible, it's far too error-prone in my opinion. Thanks, Joe P.S. For clarity, I've attached a screenshot of what I mean by making an adjustment layer a "child layer" of a pixel mask layer. Unfortunately I'm not sure what the correct terminology is for this is.
  11. This is my first post I'm new to this forum. Ive tried and looked for hours to find out how to save all my adjustment layers to Preset(s). From my understanding you have to save each layer and label it. For example, adjusting and then saving the Vibrance as a preset and naming it. After saving each layer preset on my finished picture and labeling them, I opened up another photo, which I want to have the exact same adjustments. I clicked on all the custom layer adjustment presets I just made but the picture doesn't turn out the same in the end? Even though when I click on each preset (in the new photo that I want to look like the previous) it says its tweaked the same as the one I saved, but the photo still looks drastically different? Do all NOT adjustments transfer over? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a better way to do this? (and im not talking about the background people photoshopped out, im aware of that) THANK YOU for reading this, this is so frustrating and it makes me want to switch back to Lightroom. (the picture without people is the look i want, the picture with people is what happens when i click on all the saved presets for the finished picture)
  12. Hey guys, why doesn't anyone talk about the lost adjustment presets after the update? I can't be the only one missing all his presets, can I? Since the update about two weeks ago I have had massive problems recovering any of my adjustment presets. (Screenshot of the palette is attached in case you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about. Yes, I opened a photo and clicked on the labels – they're empty.) Under the section LUT alone there were 35 presets that I personally saved and collected over months and years! I already had similar experiences with older beta versions of the apps, where certain folders could be copied so that all user-defined settings are available again. But it doesn't seem to work this time. To be honest, this situation makes me more and more disgruntled. I wonder why this palette, which was included in the programs from the beginning, has no export function yet. Damn, even the crop tool has a function for exporting defined ratios. Even later implemented functions like macros or assets can be exported! Why not curve or white-balance presets?! Now excuse my little psych-out. Fortunately I have a Time Machine Backup, but even if I recover the data from it, I can only work with the penultimate officially released version – but that's obviously not a solution, who wants to work with an outdated version if there's a shiny new release with better features? This btw. isn't just related to Photo, but also Designer. And it's not only on Mac, but also on Windows – I checked. So if anyone has a solution to this problem, please - please- share it with the community! Or just let me know if anyone else has this problem. Cheers MrDoodlezz
  13. Hi. Every time I wanna ad some effect at adjustments layers on affinity photo it crashed and quit on me when I scroll down. I’m with the lastest version 1.6.12.86 on iPad Pro 11. Any solutions for this issue? 2C8A3079-2FA4-4D4B-BC53-A465B48ED410.MP4 2C8A3079-2FA4-4D4B-BC53-A465B48ED410.MP4 2C8A3079-2FA4-4D4B-BC53-A465B48ED410.MP4 8C799839-6075-4DF5-8356-4975E68FE96A.MP4
  14. I'm a first-time user, so this is probably very simple. In Affinity Photo: Every time I choose any entry from the Adjustments panel, AP immediately crashes. I have a tiff file loaded (1606x1074, 3.1 Mb). Using AP 1.6.7 on an iMac running OS 10.13.6. I'm including the automatically generated crash log in case that's of any help. Crash log.rtf
  15. I don't know if this has been suggested but I use curves a fair bit and particularly LAB for those really powerful wide gamut adjustments. The current graph only has a four by four grid which isn't anywhere near enough to lock in really fine changes. It would be really handy if it were possible to size these graphs too. It's something I'm used to in other software so I was expecting to see it here and (I assume) that changing the reticule is a five minute job for an intern. Resizing is a different matter because that carries other problems … but pretty, please with knobs and bells on (and a cherry on top)?
  16. Hi I am trying to use the adjustments in affinity photo for Windows 1.6 desktop. When I click on the adjustments I seem to get 3 options rather than the panel with the adjustments. For example when I click HSL adjustment I get default, desaturate and invert hue, but not the panel with the sliders. It is the same with Levels-instead of the sliders for levels I get default, darken or lighten. I can't see where to alter this setting. Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance
  17. This has been an issue for a while now. The blur brush tool adjustments in the tool bar (opacity, hardness and flow) don't seem to be doing anything. I've been using affinity photo now for about 7 months now. This never used to be an issue - the opacity, hardness and flow sliders would all have an effect on the blur brush tool. However all of the sudden, one day they stopped working and the blur brush tool is stuck on max blur! Can anybody tell me why or how to fix this? Note: these adjustments work just fine on paint brushes, burn/dodge brush tools etc its only an issue with the blur tool.
  18. Hi guys, I was working on an image I cropped a bit, then I wanted to apply an adjustment (any) to it, what happens is that the adjustment layer is added but due to no pop-up it cannot be modified. I'm running Affinity Designer v1.6.1.93 Any ideas?
  19. Just a question or bug, not sure. Under adjustments studio there’s sub menus. The first one is ADJUSTMENT. That sub menu seems to have all of the adjustments that photo supports. But, then there are other sub menus like black and white, brightness/contrast, channel mixer etc. Some of those sub menus have nothing in them, like INVERT, but there is an INVERT with the sub menu ADJUSTMENTS which seems to hold ALL of the adjustments like I indicated before. I thought for example INVERT should be in the ADJUSTMENT sub menu and the INVERT sub menu. Maybe I’m missing something.
  20. Maybe I've got this wrong, but it seems to me that some filters, such as Unsharp Mask in Affinity Photo are not affected by spatial selections. If I mark out a selected area on an image, then apply Unsharp Mask and move the Before/After display over the image, it's not only the area bounded by the selection which shows up as having changed. Is this a bug or a feature? Clearly sometimes changes are restricted to selected areas - such as lightening, exposure etc., but it seems to be a matter of trial and error to find which ones are constrained by spatial selections. Sometimes in an image there is one feature which cries out to be sharpened, or vice-versa to be blurred. If the selections don't work as expected this can be confusing. For this post I'm restricting my concerns to spatial constraints, though I also have some queries (to follow maybe) regarding colour tonal range constraints.
  21. Hey there community and Affinity devs, some time ago I asked the developers via Facebook if there's an option to keep the adjustment presets like gradient maps, imported and saved LUT files, levels, curves – pretty much everything in the "Adjustment"-palette/tab that you may have generated and saved there over time. Back then (August 2015) you would need to save them separately, because you'd loose them with the next update – at least that's what happened to me twice – after that I was more cautious about those files. Anyway, I got a pretty helpful response: I was told there's a file called adjustments.propcol in the directory /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/ and it would contain all of my adjustments – and it's true! You can save that file and put it back there after each update to preserve your custom presets. Tough I guess it's been solved since a few updated ago because I haven't done it after a couple of times. Last year I purchased the Win-version of Affinity Photo as well and just now I'm starting to wonder: How to transfer adjustment presets from one system (Mac) to another (Win) and is this possible in the first place? So if anyone knows the answer or a workaround that doesn't involve loading everything manually I'd be pretty thankful. Greetings Dennis
  22. I need the software merely to make text adjustments, not to create artwork. I followed the tutorial on Vimeo on how to change text in a pdf document, but unfortunatelly I was unable to get the text panel to display as shown in the video tutorial, and I was unable to figure out how to make the text changes. The video mentioned that there are other ways if this does not work, but where are the other ways? How can I make text changes of pdf files? Which tutorial covers this? Or was there a bug in the newly downloaded test version of Affinity Designer because it did not give me access to the panel displayed in the tutorial video.
  23. Create Macro to Export photos Ctrl-Click on any adjustment takes it back to zero Tools should not change when you use a shortcut to call them. Example: I use the brush tool, then switch to another tool, then press B to bring back the Brush tool, but now I find it being changed to the Color Replacement tool. I would like the adjustment size of the brush tool to be in exact increments of 5, not 5.1, etc Make the default setting of the Sharpen Brush to Unsharp Mask instead of Clarity Support for ProPhoto RGB
  24. When the raw output format is set to 32-bit (HDR) format in the Assistant dialog, are there any differences in making image adjustments (exposure, brightness, colors, white balance, shadow, highlight, ... etc ..., except noise reduction) within the Develop Persona compared to Photo Persona? In other words, what are the advantages in adjusting image parameters in Develop Persona? If there is no difference, wouldn't this method be partial workaround to the histogram bug in Develop Persona?
  25. I know that you can attach Curves and Levels adjustments to masks and set their target channel to Alpha instead of Master. This is great feature that allows us to change a mask non-destructively, but we should be able to attach all adjustments and filters to a mask as if the mask was a regular grayscale pixel layer. Also currently in order to attach Curves or Level adjustments to a mask you have to create it and attach it manually to the mask. Would be nice to be able to select the the mask - add the adjustment layer (or live filter) and have it link automatically to the mask. Hope all this makes sense. Cheers!
