  1. Hi - Newbie to Affinity and photo-editing in general here. I do 3D bathroom design work but sometimes the only tile images we can get have lighting effects applied to them. When used in 3d, this looks dreadful! How can I remove this lighting effect coming from the top left corner to give an even brightness to the tile? I can then apply lighting in my 3D model to give the effect I want. Many thanks, Laurence Only tile image available Looks awful when tiled to the wall in 3D Even tile shading shown from a promo shot
  2. I re-opened a file I have worked with V1.7. I wanted to work on the lighting of the background but the filter does not want to work. As you can see on the screen shots, nothing changes after changing the lightning parameters. Or I am missing something or the lighting has some problems. I believe that this goes together with other posts of mine on the lighting filter in V1.7. All the problems seems to happen after I save and re-open the file.
  3. The Live Lighting Filter allows you to import an image to use as a bump map. I would also like the option to use an existing layer within the open document as the bump map (Much like the way the Displacement Map filter allows you to use another layer as the source. However I think entering or selecting the layer name in the Lighting filter panel would be preferred over the "Use layers below" approach in the DM filter) With an imported bump map, you can't make any edits to the bump map without opening it as a separate document. That makes it very difficult to edit the bump map in context of the image you are applying it to. By allowing an existing layer within the open document to be used as the bump map, you could easily modify it and quickly see the results. Examples: erase a portion of the bump map where you want no texture, alter the contrast of the bump map, rotate, re-size the bump map, etc. all without the trial & error of editing a separate image. Thank you for your consideration. Love Affinity!
  4. ok, here's a question for the heroes out there. I have a shot of a covered bridge that I have added storm clouds to and darkened. (see attachment) I want to add a warm glow from several of the windows where the light appears to come from lamps hung above the windows but coming out the windows - similar to Thomas Kinkade paintings. anyone have any ideas? The first attach is the bridge, the second is Kinkaid's Graceland choose files...---------Click to choose files.url
  5. The following video in YouTube demonstrates how he was able to add light onto the subjects feet area without it affecting the entire photo. What I appreciated of the feature, he was able to open a circular zone, and inside that zone, no matter where he dragged it, that’s where the light remained. Is iPad Pro (10.5 - 2017 model) to weak for such a feature? Or does Affinity Photo have it, and I’m just not aware of it? I am aware of the lighting persona, the 3 prongs and it brings up that lighting spotlight that flares out. I mean something just like in this video? (Seems more intuitive to me) Manually Fast forward to 9:42 timestamp. Google doesn’t allow us to timestamp from our iPads devices (facepalm)
  6. Is there a way to save a live lighting filter as a "new" light? or preset? I've searched the forums and read everything I can get my hands on regarding lighting, but I can't seem to find any setting that allows you to do this, (as a similar function allows in Photoshop). If there is no function like this, are there any plans to develop this in the future?
  7. I am more drawn towards using Designer but will be spending more time later this year learning about Photo. One of my HUGE Designer / Photo add on packs which is my main production flow, requires me to need a photo editor, Despite being a long term user of another editor ( not PS!) which offers utilities not included in Photo, I find thta I can get what I am wanting in Photo without too much hassle. Let's say I am liking it alot.. So as my effort of showing off my creations here is one and I included the original image for comparison. Hope you like it. I encourage all positive critiques!
  8. Hello, When trying to use the live lighting filter on any type of photo, the dialog box pops up on top of the image and I am not able to move it out of the way. This behavior does not occur when using the lighting filter from the filters menu. I can move that dialog box all over the place. I can't figure out what i'm doing wrong. Can you help? system specs as follows; lenovo laptop running win10 with an i7 quadcore 2.6ghz cpu, 16g ddr4 memory and a nvidia gforce graphics card with 4g of memory.
  9. It's often nice to be able to add a pool of light, for example under a lamp or generally around the image to create more contrast. A simple way to do this: Gradient tool (left toolbar) Type: Elliptical (top context toolbar). Note: this will create a new pixel layer. Click on colour panel in top toolbar. Leave left circle at white and set right circle at 50% grey. Blend Mode: Overlay. Control intensity with Opacity. You can easily drag and shape the pool of light. Change the left circle to any hue to create coloured pools. Drag half-way mark on ellipse axes to change gradient, or even click on axis to add more points. To do dark pools: Reverse gradient (top context toolbar button) and Blend Mode: Multiply. Note: While these are non-destructive (on separate layer), you don't seem to be able to go back and re-edit the ellipse afterwards. Using the Filters/Lighting filter as a point would seem an alternative, but it doesn't appear to be able to do an ellipse.
  10. I am having a consistent error when deleting a light filter from an image. To recreate, open any image or create new: 1) Add new light filter 2) Move to desired location 3) Add a second light filter 4) Move to desired location 5) Delete first light filter (AP crashes) Video example:
  11. Why does any new light I add take on the same attributes as the previous one placed? And if I change one they all change. This has to be a bug.
  12. Hi all, I am new to Affinity Photo, has anyone got any advice on how I can Make my cad visuals attached look more realistic with this software, what would I use to make adjustments? Thank you in advance.
  13. Hello everyone! When trying to light a scene, I see some limitations to the "Lighting Tool": There are steps between the different shadings creating an outline for seemingly each used color value. Is this an intended optimization? Is it just the way this tool is limited? Or is this a bug of some sort? I first thought it was a limitation of 8 bit documents, but even after using 16 or 32 bit, this doesn't improve. Best wishes, Shu
  14. Can you please add alpha channels to lighting effects. This would be a killer enhancement.
  15. Hi, In diesem Affinity Photo Tutorial zeige ich aus der Serie Affinity Photo Foto Optimierung wie man das Foto Lost Place verbessern kann. Hier geht es nicht um große Effekte, sondern um viele kleine Verbesserungen, die dann hoffentlich für ein besseres Ergebnis sorgen. In this Affinity Photo Tutorial, I show you from my serie photo optimization how to improve a photo. There are no great effects, but many details which hopefully improve the result. Viel Spaß Have fun Your Jack Foto / photo: eigenes / self made Link to YouTube Tutorial

    Adding some atmosphere.

    Here is an edit I did in AP to bring a bit of light, atmosphere and warmth to an otherwise dull forest scene. All comments, good and bad, welcome. Joe
  17. Hello All, First attempt at Affinity Photo. I used a few tools in this example; Inpainting Brush Tool, Paint Brush Tool, and the Lighting Tool, amongst others. My favourite feature is definitely the lighting tool... So many possibilities! Hope you like it, and thanks to Callum for the help. Cheers, Adam
  18. Hi there, so I recently downloaded the affinity beta, anyway during the promo video it showed the ability to add instagram like filters over photographs (will attach a screenshot). However I cannot find the feature anywhere within the program? Sorry it's all very new to me, i'm sure it's hiding in there somewhere. Thanks!
  19. Darn, sorry about this, feel bad to mention this, but Lighting Effects does not work in my Beta 1.1.2.23663. It did not work in the first beta iDown loaded then a note told me a new beta was available, lighting still does not work. Watched the video umpteen times to make sure iWas not missing a step, but the instructions are pretty straight forward.Go to Filters, scroll down and select Lighting. Check. The cone and dialog box come to life. Check. But the Frame does not darken as in the Video? iCan move the cone around, etc., both in the frame and in the dialog box but no other functions in the dialog box work. iCan slide the controls back and forth and they stick, but no effect. Chose a different light color, no effect. Press apply, no effect. Am iMissing something?
