    astronomy photos

    I am still learning my way through AP and have started re-working some of my old images which are now much improved vs my old editing techniques in PS Here is my 1st main attempt using AP This is IC5070 Pelican nebula in Cygnus tone mapped using Sii as Red, Ha as green and Oiii as Blue. 9x5min each colour channel. Stacked and aligned in Astroart, Initial stretching and development in Startools then colour re-combination, balancing, additional tone mapping and sharpening in AP. BTW - AP did these final stages in a fraction of the time PS takes. Clear Skies

    Astronomy macros

    Now that I have made the switch to AP I am re-working many of my astrophotography macros. I will share them here with brief instructions and encourage others to share theirs. All my macros are for Windows OS This set of 3 takes the basic individual monochrome filtered R G and B images and converts each into a colour channel. Load each RGB file separately into AP, Run the respective macro and copy the output of each into a single AP layered document, then set the blend mode of each to add This will output a single RGB non white balanced file grey to blue.afmacro grey to green.afmacro grey to red.afmacro
  3. Hello, did anybody try to use Affinity Photo for even basic astronomical images processing? I started with stacking without dark frames and worked very nicely, how would you apply dark frames and flat fields? Thank you Gaetano
  4. Here's a space related infographic I've been working on. It was all built in Designer.

    science / astronomy illustrations

    Here are a few of the illustration that I created for a site I just finished working on. All the final images were SVG files but many of them started with a photo reference or with original art created in Photo. There are a few that were all done in Designer as well. For some of the images (such as the quasar and the fusion image) I also used Flame Painter which is a fractal paint application and would then bring those elements into Photo to composite and adjust them to get the final art. I can go into more of the process if anyone is interested. Cheers! Jeff The Universe from A to Z
  6. I have been doing some testing in stacking pictures I took of the Orion nebula. The pictures are good and the stars are pinpoints. The problem is that I tried all alignment parameters and the result is never aligned. I had high hopes for this function but it doesn't seem to be very good. Stacking is one of the main reasons I bought Affinity Photo, the other being to replace Photoshop Elements. I could always use Deep Sky Stacker but I had great hopes for affinity. I could always try to align manually but that's a lot of work. Anyone has ideas?
  7. When you want a picture of a deep sky object like Orion, you normaly have to expose for a long time with a guided telescope. A simpler way is to take many pictures and stack them to add the information from each picture and get a much brighter one. How should I do this in Affinity? I need to add all the pictures to simulate a longer exposure. This is not HDR or focus stacking, just adding data. Thanks.
  8. Hi all I am new to Affinity and photo editing more generally. I have a few milky way and northern lights photos (in RAW) that I would like to process. I would be grateful if anyone could suggest the key tools to use (including any compatible plug ins) - I particularly like the lighting effect on the Affinity website of the northern lights. Many thanks Andrew
  9. This is an astonomy-based question ... In an image, If I select an object with a lasso, a nebula for example ... but I want to use curves on everything except the nebula ... how do I invert the selection so that only the background would be processed. Im sure it can be done, but I cant figure out how. Thanks for reading.
  10. The first in a series of space exploration themed posters featuring quotes from Carl Sagan.
