  1. Way back in the good old 30s, 40s & 50s, before real science had begun to catch up with pulp fiction, there was a penchant among sci-fi magazines for mad scientists to experiment on scantily-clad ladies in glass vessels. I've seen quite a few on FaceBook pages lately, so I thought I'd have a go at making a realistic-looking one of my own, mostly in Affinity Photo.As far as possible I've used my own photos, but the unfortunate female is from Pixabay, the Mad Scientist is Doc Brown from Back to the Future with William Herschel's head (photo: Julia Margaret Cameron), the glass thingy is from off the internet; the tubing is some Affinity Designer image brushes I made for the purpose. The whole thing was largely inspired by Richard Hamilton's Pop Art collage Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?. It grew organically, which means I had a half-formed plan in my head and mostly added stuff willy-nilly and moved it around till I was happy. Oh, and I had to paint everything electric-shock blue. I made this A2 size, which is a bit bigger than it needed to be really: the while thing is nearly 300MB, even after I'd flattened quite a few of the layers and groups. This is Hamilton's iconic work, which kicked off the Pop Art movement in 1956. In those days, cut and paste meant a pair of scissors and a bottle of Gloy!
  2. As I said in my introduction, I am new and I am lost. Completely. How does one make a collage? Be gentle.
  3. When trying to make a 4 photo collage, I wanted to find an easy way to feather the edges of the photos together, without having to start drawing shapes and be precise (to speed up workflow). I did find a work-around for it, though not very practical or speedy. But, in searching, I stumbled upon something that could be improved. When using the Live filter: vignette, the effect still applies to the whole document, even when the filter is linked to only one of the layers, as you can see in the screenshot. What are your thoughts? Have I maybe skipped a step somewhere? Also, does anyone know a good way to quickly feather edges of a layer? Only the edges I choose though. If I did not skip a step: I suggest, to improve workflow and practicallity: A dropdown menu when applying a Filter where you can choose between "Full document" or "Selected layers", so you can choose to have it logically affect only the layers/area you need. Using my own document as an example, to only vignet the top right object/layer. As an extra suggestion: the option to quickly select a layer, to convert it to a smart object that you can edit in its own document. Perhaps an extra option in the Layers menu and when Right Clicking a layer to "Edit in seperate document" Which will automatically convert the layer to a smart object, create a new seperate document and allow you to edit seperately with no extra steps in-between. Live editing of the seperate document, where the adjustments directly transfer to the main project, would be a nice added feature, so you don't need to constantly close and reopen the smart object. Though, I see how that could be more difficult to implement. I've already run into the issue several times that I need the ability to edit a smart object seperately and have read of several others that have too, so I do see a need here that could be filled, at least in a more practical/intuitive way.
  4. some recent images that travelled through Affinity Photo -- old fashion dodge and burn would the most used tool used in these images Lumix Fz300 Just like a big kid : throw -- throw it ----- ------ ----- ----- not so far next time Lonely pelican three photos of the one tree >background is bark from a nearby tree + a little texture brushing as above plus : black and white adjustment layer with a multiply blending layer + the orton effect I saw something in this long dead tree root beside the river ; however what I saw was not quite like how it ended up Very similar edits as the above files > honest comments / suggestions for next time / questions welcome
  5. Hello, I am looking for a way to automate creating of a collage for product photography for several product items. I would have a set of images for each product and I would like to place and resize them into predefined slots of the final collage then export it as a single tiff/jpeg (a rough example is attached). Ideally, there would be a macro that would allow me to select the 5 files in specific order, resize, place in predefined slots on the canvas, apply some border effects and export. I played with the macro functionality, but there does not seem to be a way to open new files or copy/paste from already open files in specific order into the main "template" document. Any thoughts/help would be appreciated. Thanks Tomas
  6. All the best for 2019mostly done in Affinity -- +Lr5. Not going to add too much here as I'm just putting a few thoughts to the test for better Panoramas and Manual hrd/blending as done in the top images. Hoping to share a few ideas sometime this year lol the panorama is west to east ; around 160 degrees. Around 6 -8 Pana Fz300 raw files . Handheld btw Starting to get the old head around Ap; yet there is so much I still need to get up to speed on Questions are welcome
  7. So I walked down to the city to sign a bit of paper and although I knew I shouldn't; I took the bloody camera! . 30-40 minute walk there was no drama -- saw subjects but left the camera in old canvas backpack -- signed the paper and bolted for home until idiot left some leaves on the footpath . The photos eyes were open, so that was the end of the "bolting" home . Took around 90 minutes and about 30 subjects LOL!! However; most subjects do follow themes of my urban photos -- light and shadows >abstracts >minimal >contrasts >seldom people - but I caught the lady having a cuppa >reflections/urban trees but I have decided to include more ugly roofs in the frame All just because a idiot left some leaves on the footpath!! It is amazing what is there that can be made into a photo. Some of these, like the 1/2 edited "twins arguing" will be shared later as a seperate photo. But that's after I get through ALL the others on the waiting list Panasonic Fz300 and slapped together with Affinity Photo The problem with a very versatile camera --- too easy to take far too many photos!! Cheers
  8. Honest comments, suggestions and questions welcome Do you prefer one picture per thread or multiple collages/pictures like this thread two hours of changing clouds guess who forget to rotate the polarising filter from vertical to horizontal pretty in the front yard actually -- more versions to come He's MINE!!
  9. I often walk past this tree and always thought at the right time there was a photo there . Cloudy day worked well . The background was made from the top of the right hand side image What was going to be one of my quick edits but turned into a bit more ; again original files masked out with the Selection brush mostly >> top of tree was blurred several time while being rotated this way and that Copy/paste the tree images with layers onto the blurred background >some more masking >> lot of moving images around to get something that looks balanced Should have put it away for a day or so at least before sharing -- can be amazing what will be seen and notice with fresh eyes -- A mentor of mine; Peter Eastway said he and staff would often look at his main composition images for a month or two; or more before considering the photo to be as perfect as possible . That's why he is a master; or maybe it's grand master several times over of photography. If you fly QANTAS his photos are used in the magazines --- good job; being flown to all parts of the world to take photos and then getting paid a lot for them -- worth googling As always, honest comments (CC) and questions welcome Fz300 panasonic -- I'm currently rekindling my love affair with my little mate Pana :lol:
  10. amazing how much a couple of sunlit leaves can be used to waste (LOTS) of time I'm not going to explain it all-- that's nearly book , but as always I am very open to sensible questions and honest comments the leaves were recorded with Panasonic Fz300 raw file >file edited in Lr5 and Ap> file mirrored with Affinity (Filters >distort>mirror) 'til something looked Ok > tiff files added the a base layer via "place" >takes a while for things to fall in place Bottom right hand corner pic is made from two mirrored files Cheers folks
  11. Questions welcome MUM! Tv is not working --- only blackNwhite!! MUM!! Shakin' the dust off Make that three now
  12. Hello friends, I leave this recent composition that I made for a client. It was made entirely in Affinity Designer 1.6.1. I used the Affinity Photo perfection brush to define pair of images. I love the freedom, power, speed, versatility and significant time saving of this wonderful software, I love it haha. I hope you can enjoy and let your imagination go, that the software can stand anything you can imagine. Long live Affinity.

  16. I've used the YouTube video on creating a collage which was very useful. I can see how you can adjust the gap between photos to be the same by selecting one image and then by moving left/right it adjusts the gap in between and provides the gap distance in red numbers. What I don't see is a way to adjust the vertical gaps to be the same. I was thinking I'd see a similar gap marker but I don't see one. Any ideas? I also have place my pictures in the collage but am struggling to get thee to fit the available space in the document. If I enlarge one to fit the opening, others need to shrink and then I have a large gap in between. I feel I am missing something but can't see how to make this work. Thanks for any help.
  17. I'm curious to know if I can use this app for creating collages of several of my photographs? I've searched the index but couldn't find a reference. Appreciate any help. Many thanks.
  18. Hello, I am building a panorama collage out of 88 panoramic photos. Is there a way to automatically resize and arrange all the photos so they fit into one canvas? I would much prefer not to have to resize each photo individually (they are all different sizes). BTW, I have placed each photo on a separate layer. Thank you! Matias
  19. A small clip (video) about the development of a book cover design. Of course, all works were made with Affinity Photo / Designer. Best greetings to Nottingham :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLoYqZOZ3bw
  20. I have several photos where I wish to cut our a selection from each and then bring those selections together as a single image. Is this possible within AP? Many thanks Sorry....... should have searched the forum first. Have found some info on this now :-)
  21. hi, how can i crop a single image in a collage of multiple images? If i choose the crop tool i can only crop the hole "image" and not the chosen layer. greetings
  22. Greetings All. I am asking for a little advice in creating a simple (for someone, not me just yet) photo collage consisting of 4 images. Two on top and two below - that type of thing. I am using images that are currently in RAW format. Any advice & help is much appreciated. Gordy.
