Hi there, my name is Dominik Kandravý. Minimalist and self-taught illustrator from Czech Republic. I mostly create minimal illustrations using simple shapes and geometry. However in this case (poster for my friend) I tried to do something more complex - Well, this is Darth Vader! PS: You can check few of my illustrations on https://dribbble.com/kndrv
I want to reduce the graininess in a photo taken in low light. Photoshop Elements has a 'Surface Blur' filter that works well for this, blurring the image while preserving edges. Do any of the filters offered on the 'Filters > Blur' submenu in Affinity Photo do the same thing under a different name, or is there an alternative noise reduction method I could use?
I love being able to specify noise / grain in Affinity's colors. I think it would be even more flexible if: 1. Rename Noise to Grain. Noise is an antiseptically cold-sounding term; Grain speaks to the art, craft and texture of photography and design. 2. Allow Users to specify both App-wide (App Prefs) and Document-Wide (New Doc / Document Settings) setting for Grain. This would tremendously easy the tedium of assigning noise to colors manually and maintain consistency, something that is not possible now as there is no numerical input for noise. Obviously there would be some exceptions with PMS / Spot colors etc 3. Allow users to apply noise as an Effect AT THE TOP of the Effects stack. As things are implemented now, applying a Gaussian Blur effect to an object blurs its color's Noise. I understand why that behavior makes sense, but from an artistic / creative point of view, one may want to blur only an objects' Shape and/or Colors while maintaining the document's Grain settings. Thanks for your consideration. The 1.5 betas are amazing, keep up the great work! Please unleash iOS betas ASAP :D Oh, and Affinity Publisher :D lolol ;)
Hello! I'm using the affinity 10 day trial to see if I like it and it's been great, until now. I open up my NEF file and make some edits in the RAW editor. I shot in a high ISO, so I was mainly editing out the noise. It looks great in the RAW editor, but once I click "Develop" it looks super noises/grainy and is even worse than before! Why is this happening and how do I fix it?
