  1. 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.

  2. I have a big suggest for you. Your software is great and the hardware too (iPad 10.5). So why I still use AF on desktop all the time? Due to the lack of a cursor. When i do D&B, I never see the area affected by the brush and this is annoying me. I don't know if the brush size fit my needs. And I cannot be precise (which area will be affected when I use the pencil?) I know that iPad doesn't have a cursor as I have on my desktop, but it would be nice to have a button that once you press it, the Apple Pencil doesn't draw anything, but just moving a cursor on the canvas. When I release the button, still showing the cursor, I start to draw, as well as I do right now. Sorry for my english.
  3. Fonts display improperly (wrong font) when opening a Designer file in Affinity Photo on my iPad Pro. Are fonts imbedded in the file?
  4. I know there are lots of topics created by people requesting specific functionality from adobe PS. One thing that I particularly like and I do mis in nearly all other imaging editing software (including Lightroom) I've tried is smart sharpening. The sharpening algorithm leads to better results and you'll get blending options to prevent clipping due to sharpening. Of course you can apply this filter as a smart-filter so you'll keep a nondestructive work-flow. I would really like to see this feature in both the iPad and MacOS versions
  5. When using the Gradient Map it would be more convenient to be able to call up saved presets from the bottom toolbar rather than have to go back to Adjustments toolbar and scroll through to Gradient map setting.
  6. When using tone map presets in a normal size photo, the displayed preset gives a good idea of colour effect. When using on a 'panorama', the tone presets resize to panorama only too narrow to actually judge effect without applying. Would it be better to show a larger sample even if it was not the full panorama? It just doesn’t look or feel right at the moment (to me at least).
  7. My new book cover design tutorial (Search The Woods) is part of the new Affinity Photo Workbook Hope my work is helpful and lets many people get creative.
  8. After opening a photo (Photo persona) Apply a gradient map from the colour adjustments panel. Cancel (bin the adjustment. The gradient tool now appears in bottom left corner. Close the photo and open another photo and the gradient tool remains visible in the bottom left corner. Shut down AP and restart, now the gradient tool is no longer shown. Is this intentional behaviour, if so why not just leave the gradient tool visible in bottom left corner?
  9. Hi, In Photoshop I used to be able to apply FX to a layer i.e a drop shadow then if I wanted to I could right click on the layer with the FX applied and select "Create Layer". This would create / convert the non destructive FX on that layer to pixels using clipping masks and layers. I found this feature really useful as I could remove parts of the drop shadow layer using masks giving me complete control of the FX. Can i request this feature to be added or do you have plans to add feature to Affinity Photo already? See screen shots attached as to where this feature is in Photoshop. Thanks, Oliver
  10. Current beta, from the help file it states: The Tone Mapping Persona contains a number of presets that appear on the left hand side within the Presets Studio. Simply tap one to apply it. You can also create your own presets, or import new ones. I can find the very good provided presets, but I can't see how to 'import' a set of presets into AP iPad. The menu offers ability to create category and save current preset, but I don't see any import option. What am I doing wrong?
  11. When there are rounded rectangles with a corners radius specified in pixels (not Absolute sizes), scaling of entire document (Resize Document…) does not affect the radius that leads to a change in the picture/design. It looks like a bug and not a feature. So there is no easy way, for example, to scale the icon set imported from SVG.
  12. The opacity attribute of the <use> element is ignored during import. <circle id="c" fill="red" r="20" cx="25" cy="25"/> <use opacity="0.5" x="25" y="0" xlink:href="#c"/>
  13. Photos of rusty motifs sometimes have a certain flair, which you can reinforce/enhance if desired. This Rusty Boost Macro just tries to do this in a reusable manner with some simple applied layers. LAYERS This macro creates two layers for you with corresponding layer masks: The macro makes first a copy (Ctrl/Cmd-J) of your background image layer and then applies a high pass filter on it (with a default setting of 20 px) and puts this layer into vivid light blending mode. You might adjust the layer's opacity to your taste here. There is also a layer mask applied so you can include/exclude certain image areas with a white/black brush here on demand. A 15% opacity black fill layer and mask are applied in multiply blend mode, in order to give blacks a slightly stronger go and darkens the image slightly. You can adjust the black fill layer opacity to your liking and use for the layer mask a white/black low to medium opacity soft brush and paint over the image, in order to include/exclude certain image areas from the black fill.

  14. Why can I not paint in Affinity Photo? It is as if the program does not register that I am putting a black paint stroke on a layer...or any other color stroke for that matter.
  15. Not actually a question..... In the desktop version a number of demos show multiple layers selected. On the iPad I was not aware how to do this and haven't seen it documented. Now I know how to do it! I have just found that if you touch on the right side of a layer and drag across to the left side it will select that layer without deselecting other layers. In this way you can select as many layers as you wish.

  17. Hello, I have a few photo from Budapest, and I think, play with a Tone Mapping Persona and text features, plus added a gradient for this old style "post card" in Affinity Photo.
  18. Hello Affinity Community ! My name is Calvin and i'm a hobbyist graphic artist and photographer from Texas. I've been using Affinity Photo and Designer a couple years now and it changed a lot for me to be able to do things easily, and get my ideas on the software SO MUCH easier than other programs. Here's some pictures from a series of images I've been working on to express myself through digital media. Hope you like it !
  19. Hi! (First THANK YOU for affinity photo - one of my life happiest day was to uninstall photoshop) When I customize the move tool shortcut key to CTRL-t the move tool shortcut afterward is T tried : save shortcut keys load shortcut keys reboot affinity photo clear all and rince & repeat previous steps nothing seems to change the shortcut from T to CTRL-t (see attached screeenshot) Note that the shortcut ctrl-T is actually displaying in the keyboard shortcut UI - so it does record my change, saves and load it, it just doesnt change the actual shortcut. UPDATE : I've even tried for testing remapping the key "a" to "T" with the freeware autohotkey : works everywhere : pressing the key "a" outputs the key "T" in all softwares ive tried BUT AFFINITY PHOTO ?????? lost here... Regards, Remi Turcotte
  20. Hello, I bought affinity photo workbook so that I can study in 1 december 2017. Now it is 11 january 2018 and my book hasn't arrived yet. Even though I live in South Korea so that it takes long time to ship, I waited over 40 days. My order number is AZKKGCBZVV I wonder when can I get this book.
  21. For certain photos like street, casual wear, but also sometimes for portraits, I tend to use matte color effects if those shots have to underline some more urban style. It is an easy task to apply some matte color effect to your shots, though if you need it quite often a reusable macro is the way to go for this. - Here is one adjustable matte color macro for Affinity Photo, which you can reuse for such matte effects for either color or b&w images. BEFORE AFTER LAYERS This macro creates three layers for you with corresponding layer masks: A curves adjustment layer which applies the main matte coloring to the image, which lowers contrast and flattens blacks. You can use the mask (draw with a white/black brush) to exclude/include specific areas from the matte color. For example you could exclude in portraits the eyes from being matte here etc. A contrast boosting layer which allows to give back a little bit of the contrast lost by the matte color effect. This is as default a copy of the matte layer with an applied soft light blending mode and half lowered opacity. Again you can use the mask to remove or reapply certain image areas here. Finally a desaturation layer which can be used to lower the saturation of possibly still too bright colors. You can use the mask here too in the same intended way as before mentioned for the other layers. THE MACRO matte_color.afmacro
  22. If the blending mode is applied to a group that contains only the adjustments layers it works properly. First all adjustments are applied in the Normal mode and then the result is blended with the original image in the group’s mode. However, if the group contains live filters, it seems that the group’s blend mode is applied a few times, first the image is blended with itself, and then apply filters, each with a blending mode. It's easy to notice if you make a group (for example in Multiply mode) of several Blur filters, the result will be darker than it should be, as if every filter in Multiply mode.
  23. Simply an oil portrait, without much editing. Photographed from the canvas, some contrast settings made with Affinity Photo, that's all. Looking forward to feedbacks TNX
  24. Hi everyone. After being part of a conversation with one of the forum members where they expressed a wish to have a start to finish set of tutorials about developing landscapes I thought I'd do something about it. So here it is: I've tried to make it different from the other courses I've done. Instead of presenting a range of tools and techniques, I've made the workflow a priority. You get to develop a series of (downloadable) landscape photos and follow a series of steps to get to the finished photo. There are variations with each photo, but the process is similar each time. I've done this for two reasons. The first is that, given this is a workflow based course, it seems only sensible to practice that workflow repeatedly to make sure people get comfortable with it. The other is that I've chosen different kinds of landscape photos to demonstrate the flexibility of the method. I hope it's of some use to you and thanks for your time, Simon
  25. Hi all, here are some of my work for Bulgarian Libertarian Society all done with Affinity Photo and Designer. Images in colages are from
