  1. Hi, i'm just wondering about the live filter/perspective.Looks good at first sight, but subsequent corrections are nearly impossible. When the live filter perspective has been applied, any further mouse click is no longer related to the picture. Depending on how strong you corrected the distortion any tool you are usinf after the filter is no longer in sync with the mouse click. This makes this live filter useless to me. Or am i doing something wrong? Currently i'm using the normal filter for this, but this is destructive and cant be re-adjusted if you are not satisfied with the first attempt.
  2. Would love to be able to adjust where to place the center of my vignette, using the Live Vignette filter. Often the area to emphasized is not in the center of the image.
  3. Affinity Photo 1.6.7 Live Filter Layer thumbnails and Mask Layer thumbnails in the layers panel remain white at all times and don't reflect changes to the mask (inverting the mask, painting areas in or out, etc.). However, adding any new layer causes the previous layer's thumbnail to display properly with the alpha correctly represented. Adjustment Layer thumbnails still behave as they should, when they should. This is only a problem with the thumbnails of Live Filter Layers and Mask Layers.
  4. Can I use NIK filters as live filters like in PS where if you work on a smart layer, Nik shows as a smart filter.
  5. Hello! I was trying to create a Photoshop mockup like one in Affinity Photo I just opened an image on Photo and placed a vector document which I worked on Affinity Designer. Then I applied the live perspective filter which didn't rasterize the document and worked as a perfect Photoshop smart object alternative. But whenever I try to align the corner points of the live perspective filter, the software crashes with no crash reporter popup window. And also sometimes it doesn't crash instead render the document improperly. I have attached the links for you people to take a look at the issue. Please look into this issue! I have no additional plugins installed, latest graphics drivers installed and have even tried a fresh install of the software but the issue persists. Watch this video to see AP crash when applying live perspective filter - Watch this video to see the improper rendering of the same filter when applied succesfully with no crash.
  6. How do I cut out precisely (!!!) the range I selected with the distortion filter "Sphere" - no matter live or destructive. I tried everything, giving up... FYC: if I make a circle selection first, I never get the range spherized I want to... Why is this filter limited to 1024 pixels??? Thanks for all reply in advance

    Layer group blending bug

    Hi, There is a bug in blending of layer groups in AF 1.6.1.93 when all of the following conditions hold: - layer group contains no pixel layers, not even disabled ones - layer group contains a live filter layer - blend mode of layer group is set to something other than Normal Easiest demonstration I have is to take the attached afphoto document, and experiment with deleting the empty and disabled pixel layer. Deleting this layer should make no difference, but the image rendered is completely different. To see the change you may need to force a redraw to get around a failure to refresh the image, you can do this by disabling the layer group and re-enabling it. The correct application of the blend mode happens only when the pixel layer is present. layer_group_blending_workaround3.afphoto
  8. Hi. I'm trying to export this file, but it won't render correctly, and it won't export correctly either. Some of the live perspective layers clip incorrectly when exporting. Design by Ajay Style Guide Aesthetic > Depth Perspective Drawing.afdesign
  9. In AP 1.6.1, if I put halftone filter in the mask position of a layer group, the result renders incorrectly. This is most visible if you try to zoom into the image. Each time it is redrawn during zooming, a completely different version is rendered, and it is also getting gradually darker. Try zooming around in the attached file to see what I mean. halftone_render_issue.afphoto
  10. Hi folks, by accident I found out that those Live Filters from Affinity Photo are working very well also in the Designer environment. It's as simple as cut&paste a filter layer from a Photo project into a Designer project. I've tried to upload a small example with two effects... So why not make the filters available directly in the Designer Filter Menu? Best regards, AC Lens Effect.afdesign

    Gaussian Blur will not apply

    Hi all, First time posting here, so I hope this is the appropriate place... I'm creating an image with multiple layers - I run a small theatre company and this image will be used to promote a touring show. It's a countryside scene with a group standing in the middle, and around the edge I have a black silhouette of leaves, branches, rushes, etc. to frame the picture. I've applied a light (1-2px) gaussian blur as a live filter to these silhouette layers in order to soften them and give a sense of depth. However, when I export the image, the gaussian blur is removed, and the leaves, etc. appear sharp again, as if I hadn't applied the blur. I tried rasterising the layer before exporting, but when I did, the blur was removed in the resulting pixel layer. I removed the live filter and tried applying the blur as an effect, but when I flatten or export the image it still gets removed. I tried applying the blur as a normal filter - the correct result shows when previewing and moving the slider, but when I hit apply the blur is removed again! I don't know if I'm missing something or whether this is actually a bug, but if anyone can help I'd really appreciate it! Other than this, I'm loving both Photo and Designer!
  12. When applying a non-destructive Motion Blur filter and nesting them into a layer (tested with text layer), screen updates are confined to the bounding box of the original layer, even if the radius setting will make the result expand beyond the original bounds. Moving the result around will leave artifacts behind that can be cleaned up by forcing a redraw (eg. by toggling visibility on a layer that covers the entire document). Version is Photo 1.6.6 App Store build, Renderer set to OpenGL, Use Precise Clipping off, OS X 10.11.6. I've also had issues with the preview clipping the motion blurred result to the alpha of the base layer despite "Preserve Alpha" being off, but I cannot reproduce this after a reboot, even with the same document.
  13. How about giving us some more control about how a live filter affects an image? Example: Live Blur
  14. This is probably a very unhelpful bug report, but... When I use the Perspective Live Filter layers Affinity Photo (1.5.1.54) often crashes, straight into the "Windows has encountered a problem with this application and is closing it". It happens frequently, but I can't see any sure-fire reproducible pattern. All I can say is that I use it with (Image) layers, maybe that helps narrowing the problem? Thanks!
  15. So when are the live filter grid lines going away?
  16. Hi I'm using Photo 1.5.2.69 on Windows. A few times I open a photo from Lightroom (exported as a TIFF) and immediately add a new live filter perspective layer. I move the corners around and Photo exits with no warning. Windows 10 64bit with 16GB RAM. Thanks Andy
  17. While the twirl filter is active, (starting from the Interactive Introduction), tapping on the active layer will reset the position of the twirl, but not the amount or radius, so i assume this is a bug (due to inconsistency, it doesn't look like a "reset feature"). This also seems to happen inconsistently with live filters (after converting it to a live filter, i expanded the layer in the layer palette, tapped on the live filter layer, and the settings were reset, but i couldn't reproduce it a second time). While the same filter is active, changing the opacity of the active layer with the opacity slider results in extreme flickering. Once the finger is removed from the slider, the opacity is shown seemingly correctly. When it's a live filter there seems to be considerable problem with visibility. Parts of the layer are missing, or not updating, when toggling visibility, opacity, and changing filter settings (like the Twirl position), seemingly as a consequence of the live filter. Please see the screenshot attachment. EDIT: when i toggled away to another app and back to Affinity Photo, this corruption clears up, which validates that it's a bug, not some kind of hidden masking (sometimes zoom and pan will force a successful redraw, sometimes not). Also, it would help a lot to have there be some kind of labeling on the filter controls panel to indicate to the user that they're working with a static filter or a live filter. There's really nothing on the screen that lets us know what we're doing if we've walked away and come back mid-action.
  18. Hi everyone! I have a question about using displacement tool and screen mode for blending a new layer with an underlaying layer. It is possible to make fake graffiti art's on walls with these two tools. Using these tools to make a fake tattoo on a skin. There are many video's for photoshop about making fake tattoo's. But it is different to Affinity. I was wondering if someone knows the answers for making fake tattoo's. My second question is about using screen mode. It automatically makes my text white. Is it possible to change that to black or an other color? Thanks in advance! Joran
  19. Hi All, I would like to use Affinity Photo to create some nice low ploy art. In other software packages you draw some triangles and apply an average blur. In attached image I have started to draw some triangles using the pen tool and grouped them above the image. Please can someone help and advice if there is a way to apply a blur effect on the entire group which will affect the image underneath it. (Not the pen border). Any help is much appreciated! Thank you.
  20. Bizarre one this! MBAir running 10.11.4 - Affinity 1.4.1 Using the Perspective Live Filter to correct an image, which works as expected. Set to Show Grid to get the Verticals correct. Then use a duplicate screen layer to lighten the building and for some reason the grid lines are retained onto the picture when exporting or saving back into Lightroom. See the attached screen grabs and exported JPEG showing grid lines on and off depending on the screen layers visibility. Look at the cyclists at the bottom centre of the frame on the JPEG to see lines clearly. Edited to add, when opacity is set to 100%, the lines are not visible, but when set lower, the lines become visible Any ideas?
  21. Hey there! I’d like to request either a shortcut or a button in the menu to keep or reset the elliptic shape for the Depth of Field Blur filter in AP while or after scaling the affected area. For now it’s possible to hold down shift and constrain the transformation to the selected axis, though honestly I'm not sure when this will get useful for me right now. Not as intuitive but maybe a button in the menu would be nice, so after scaling the ellipse in width or height you would be able to convert it back into a circle-shape with the new dimension. Also the option to hold shift while moving the center of the effect so it’d snap onto the x- or y-axis would be cool. Let me hear what you guys think of this. ;) Greetings Dennis
  22. Is there a way in Affinity Photo to generate this effect: - you have a picture, e.g. of a leave, - you draw a shape, e.g. an ellipse, on top of the first picture, as a second layer (e.g. a magnifier glass) - you assign a live distortion effect to this ellipse, e.g. a wave, sphere, lense distortion etc. (the magnifier effect) - and this effect is then applied to the layers below the shape, but within the frame of the shape? You could design a magnifier glass on top of the leave picture, and while moving this glass around, you see the magnification effect constantly. - Useful to find a right position for this effect to magnify the right spot. - Useful to draw a rain drop on top of the leave which really looks like a drop, including distortion of the water. Ideas? Best regards BlauerClaus
  23. Hallo, in diesem Affinity Photo Tutorial zeige ich wie man eine Vignette erstellt. Zu den Bildkorrekturen im Vorspann: Wie das geht habe ich im gesonderten Tutorial „Belichtung & Tonwertkorrektur“ gezeigt. In this Affinity Photo Tutorial, I show you how to create a vignette. And the previous photo corrections: I did a separate video „Belichtung & Tonwertkorrektur“ (aperture & curves). ​Ciao Jack www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPQVQ0UyfFA www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPQVQ0UyfFA
  24. Hey there, I don’t know if this is a bug or if this is just how it works or if it’s because of the resolution. I’ve added denoise live filter on top of a photo and cranked it up all the way. Now what happens is, that I get this shine or blurry, transparent and even artifact-like edge around the picture. I know it sometimes these white, shiny edges can be corrected by checking the transparency box, but the denoise filter doesn’t offer that option, at least for me. Here’s the file, so you can see if you get the same results as me. Blurry edge.afphoto Greetings Dennis
  25. I just watched the shadows and highlights video and questioned myself why does the normal filter still exist? Isn´t the live filter as powerful by any means? https://vimeo.com/136106490
