  2. Today, let’s have fun with Gradient Maps… Gradient Maps are a great way to color grade photos, since they map dark, light, and midtone values according to a pre-defined gradient. This can easily define a “look” for photos that might otherwise be hard to accomplish. Although I am not a user of Photoshop, our “arch rival” has a wonderful group of gradient maps called “Photographic Toning” that are specifically designed to color grade photos. Although you have to drill down through a few panels and dialog boxes to find them (and you sort of have to know they’re there in the first place) they are a truly nice addition. Also, they are easily obtained by anyone. But, as they say, there’s the rub. Affinity Photo cannot import Photoshop gradient maps. Affinity Photo can store pre-defined gradients in the Swatches studio, but for some unknown reason the stored gradients are not available from the Gradient Map studio panel. Gradient Maps can be stored as presets, and can be chosen from the Adjustments panel, but I don’t believe they can be easily exported from one computer and brought into a different one. So… after a long couple of days of transcription, I have created a set of Macros that apply each of the 38 Photographic Toning gradient maps. Since macros are easy to store, and to share, I am making them available for anyone who wants them. There are actually 2 sets of Macros included - each as an easy-to-import Category from the Library panel. The first group of Macros is called “Photographic Toning Gradients” and these are named according to the gradient map they apply. Each macro creates a Gradient Map layer, applies the appropriate color values, and names the layer according to the gradient map it applied. The second set of macros is called “Photographic Toning Gradients - reduced.” This category also applies the gradient maps in a similar fashion, but then reduces the opacity of the layer to 30%. This reduces the effect of the Gradient Map, and produces a much subtler effect. Here is an image that shows the full-strength versions of all 38 gradient maps. And here is a photo to which I’ve applied a full-strength gradient map, and also a reduced-strength gradient map. These macro categories are included in the ZIP file attached to this post, along with a Letter sized JPG that includes samples of the gradient maps. Also included in the ZIP file is another macro category that includes one more macro. It’s called “Obama Hope Poster” and, as you might have guessed, it turns any photo into an Obama Hope-style poster. Just because… Please enjoy them! Photographic Toning Gradient Maps.zip

    New iPad

    Hi! I have installed/saved several macros and luts on my affinity app on my iPad. Are there anyway I could transfer the program to another iPad. my only option seem to be to download the affinity photo app blank and then manually import al of the above again into the new app on the new iPad. This is extremely boring...:-) The backup from iCloud only installed the “empty” app again. any solutions or is it just keep on doing it manually....?

    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

    Subtle Sharpening

    Here is a macro for AP Photo that I created for a subtle sharpening that does not cause image to become grainy. Take it, try it, and tell me what you think! NW Subtle Sharpening.afmacro
  6. I'm just new to Affinity Designer and so far loving it, but I was really surprised today to discover there is no capability for setting up macros to speed up the processes I use. It's a feature I rely heavily on in Adobe. Would love to see this in a future update as I'm sure I'm not the only one who uses macros to speed up workflow.

    LAB sharpen

    I do most of my work in the LAB color space. I then convert to other color gamuts as required. I find LAB useful since it separates color from luminosity so its easier to create masks such as luminosity or saturation masks. I have developed a macro that provides sharpening and color accentuation using the unsharp mask and curves. In the enclosed macro you can adjust the separation of the A and B components as you wish, just bring up the curves adjustment to accomplish. I have also included the selective color adjustment and levels adjustment which I often use to "dial in" the precise colours I want. Just access the respective adjustments once the macro has run.

    Snow & Ice Designers Kit for Photo

    Winter is HERE for those in the Northern Hemisphere.. That means Snow & Ice, only this kit isn;t so cold.It's Cool! Psst! If you are into GOT PM for a link to better soundtrack of this video.. https://www.creativefabrica.com/product/snow-ice-for-affinity-photo/ref/63430/ WATCH Demo Video here:
  9. Each week I have to crop 200 photos to 1:1 size. These are a mix of portrait and landscape. The focal point is not in the same position in each image. So, I need to be able to change the crop area for each photo. To open, crop, save for each photo is slow and tedious. I'd much rather use batch that has a macro that automatically opens each photo, opens the cropping dialog, waits for me to set the crop area, then saves the photo. Is this possible with Affinity Photo? (Is it possible in Photoshop?_ Thanks

  11. Hallo zusammen, ich bin begeisteter Schnorchler und Taucher. So Haben sich im lauf der Zeit hunderte von Unterwasserfotos angesammelt, welche man einzeln bearbeiten muss. Wem geht es auch so und wer hätte Interesse mit mir zusammen einige Makros und oder Workarounds zu entwickeln, damit die Bearbeitungszeit der einzelnen Fotos schneller von statten geht. Ich habe mir das so vorgestellt, daß ein Makro einen Ordner erstellt in dem Ordner sind bereits feste vorgaben enthalten die nur noch aktiviert werden müssen. Beispiel Ordner: Objektivfilter Rotfilter (Dichte 70/1,5m) Ojektivfilter: Dichte 10 (bis.0,5m) Ojektivfilter: Dichte 30 (ca.0,5m) Ojektivfilter: Dichte 50 (ca.1m) Ojektivfilter: Dichte 70 (ca.1,5m) usw.... so werden verschiedene Ordner erstellt und bei Bedarf abgerufen. Hat man mehrere Fotos mit den gleichen Lichtverhältnissen und der gleichen Tiefe kann man diese Datei dann auch als Vorlage verwenden, und man kann jederzeit auch noch ein bisschen nachkorrigieren. Also wer hat Lust? Wer schon Makros oder Vorlagen für Unterwasserfotos hat, dem bin ich auch nicht böse wenn er sie uns zur Verfügung stellt. Einen schönen Sonntag noch. Gruß Dieter
  12. I'm very new to Affinity Photo so am getting to know where it really shines and where it falls short. By no means was I adept at Photoshop, but I found it essential for recording Actions. Unfortunately I've run into some issues using Affinity Photo's Macros in Batch jobs. The main one being that if I have a folder full of images that are in different aspect ratios (3:2, 4:3) it seems I am unable to record a Macro that resizes to a specific width or height ONLY. When I record a Macro and resize a 4:3 file to say 800px wide, with the size locked the height of course becomes 600px. If I run that Macro as a Batch on the folder of mixed aspect ratio images, the images that are in 3:2 ratio are resized to 800px x 600px, so they're badly distorted. So the Macro records the dimensions of BOTH edges when the resizing takes place, rather than only the edge you actually edit (as is the case in Photoshop). Is there an obvious solution to this that I am missing?
  13. I have a custom macro created in Affinity Photo (1.7) for the Mac and want to import this on Affinity iPad (1.7). What are the correct steps to achieve this?
  14. This is my first post I'm new to this forum. Ive tried and looked for hours to find out how to save all my adjustment layers to Preset(s). From my understanding you have to save each layer and label it. For example, adjusting and then saving the Vibrance as a preset and naming it. After saving each layer preset on my finished picture and labeling them, I opened up another photo, which I want to have the exact same adjustments. I clicked on all the custom layer adjustment presets I just made but the picture doesn't turn out the same in the end? Even though when I click on each preset (in the new photo that I want to look like the previous) it says its tweaked the same as the one I saved, but the photo still looks drastically different? Do all NOT adjustments transfer over? Am I doing something wrong? Is there a better way to do this? (and im not talking about the background people photoshopped out, im aware of that) THANK YOU for reading this, this is so frustrating and it makes me want to switch back to Lightroom. (the picture without people is the look i want, the picture with people is what happens when i click on all the saved presets for the finished picture)
  15. I have two macros that I will run in a batch process against .tiff files to get ready for processing in Affinity Photo. The first macro makes a copy of the background layer and names it to "Color Efex Pro 4 - ". The second macro simply creates a new pixel layer and names it "Cleanup Layer". Both macros only have two steps. In AP 1.7.0.367 when I select say 12 files to run in the batch process and execute these two macros only 2 or 3 (it is not consistent in the number if will process) then the batch process will end without error and AP will shutdown. On restarting AP there is no indication that any sort of error has taken place. That is the mail problem. The second problem is that in the Library panel the option to Edit a macro is greyed out. I found this when I was going to open the macro to look at the code. The options to Delete Macro or Rename Macro are active but the Edit Macro is greyed out. I have attached an export of Editing Macros - Marvin.afmacros for your use in testing. In this library category the two files I am call in the batch process are "Create Layer for Color Efex Pro 4" and "Create Cleanup Layer". I call them in that order. These macros have been running for about a year without any difficulty in Batch processing batches containing as many as 40 .tiff files. The error I have described above is happening when I try a batch of only 12 files. Running Windows 10 with latest updates. Thank you Marvin "Butch" Reinhart Editing Macros - Marvin.afmacros
  16. As a photographer, I create macros to make my life easier and save time on repetitive tasks. I've created a simple macro that resizes the image canvas and flattens the image. I want to also include saving and closing the image, but I keep getting a dialog asking if I want to save the flatten image. My answer to the dialog box question is always 'Yes'. Why can't I just record my dialog box choices into the macro?
  17. A lot of users, myself included, often create custom brushes and assets to use with Affinity Apps. With the release of Affinity Publisher (especially with StudioLink) I find it quite tedious to install the newly created brushes and assets individually into every app since I do switch between them quite regularly and need all my tools available. It would be really nice that when you install/delete assets and brushes in any one of the Affinity apps that they are automatically loaded/available/updated in the other apps. Example scenario: As an illustrator, I often create new custom brushes for projects. If I created a custom raster brush in Photo, but then needed to switch to Designer for vector work, I'd need to open Photo, save the brush, open Designer and then load the new brush in the Pixel Persona. Then when I switch to Publisher for layout, I would need to switch to the Photo Persona via StudioLink and reload the brush there too if I wanted to do a few finishing touch-ups. If I then made a few small tweaks to the brush, perhaps some small improvements (such as tweaking the pressure curve for the size jitter), I would need to repeat the entire process all over again. The same goes for Assets, and more. It can quickly become very time consuming. It would be incredibly useful to have a universal folder where the brushes/assets are stored so that they automatically update across the board when you customise or add them. Obviously this wouldn't be applicable on iPad, but I think it would be incredibly innovative and useful on desktop, and a huge time saver in anyone's workflow. That way you'd only need to load, say, a raster brush once in Photo, and then automatically have it available in Designer's Pixel Persona and Publisher's Photo Persona. Same goes for vector brushes, assets, macros, swatches, styles, etc.
  18. I am basically trying to recreate some Photoshop Actions I use all the time. In Photoshop I can create a few Vibrance adjustments with vibrance at -100 and saturation at +100 and it shows the most intense areas. In Photoshop these are just in a folder but they work without the folder too. In Affinity Photo this doesn't really do anything like in Photoshop so I am not sure how the layers actually behave? I do have some other questions -- if someone out here is really proficient with Affinity -- would it be helpful if I sent over my Photoshop Actions -- I have 3 that I really want to match with Affinity. Thank you, Roman [I've attached the vibrance effect that photoshop can (seemingly) accomplish and Affinity not] -- before and after

    Affinity Photos

    When I try to do a batch job in Affinity Photos it just crashes. I am not sure why and it is really annoying.
  20. Where I can find macros in Batch processing? I find guide in Help section, but I can’t find any macro option in batch processing. Also batch help page looks like a Windows or Mac version...
  21. Hello everybody! I just wanted to let you know that FX Monkey's second free pack for Affinity Photo is out! Faux 96: 8 Color presets and 4 Overlay Textures.

  23. I bought Affinity Photo for windows and it came with the Macro Pack. I followed the directions to install them but the program only looks for Macro (.afmacro) files not (.afmacros) which is what the files are named in the pack that I got. I changed the name and removed the (s) the program then sees it as an option but when I try to import it nothing happens.
  24. This is an updated version of the Polar Quadrant macro I have posted earlier. Consider a rectangular image that you would like to bend into an arc: The macro has two parameters. The first (a or Sector Width) controls the fraction of a circle that the altered image will occupy. The default value of 1 produces an arc of one eighth of a circle. Reducing this to 0.5 gives one quarter of a circle. This image this parameter set to 0.5: The second parameter (b or Height below Top) controls the position of the centre of the circle. Setting this to 1 places the centre at the bottom edge of the image. Reducing the value places the centre above the bottom, thereby reducing the radius. The following image has this parameter set to 0.75 (and the first to 0.5): A few notes: The parts of the final image outside the sector are transparent. The parts within the sector retain the original background colour. The macro works with the latest 1.7 Beta (333). I have tried to set both the default parameters to 1. However, in the 1.6 version, it insists on setting the default of the second parameter to zero which gives you a blank output! You will need to increase this second parameter. It seems to perform properly in the 1.7 beta. The image layer is rasterized at the start of the macro. If you apply a small value of the Height below Top parameter (below 0.5), You will get a partial (or even full) mirror image in the bottom part of the screen. I have left this, since some users might want to utilise it. Otherwise you can crop the image. The macro comprises a rasterization followed by Filter > Distort > Equations with the following lines for x and y: x=w*atan((x-w/2)/(h*b-y))/(180/pi/a)+w/2 y=h*b-sqrt((x-w/2)^2+(h*b-y)^2) Here are the macro and macro library (containing the one macro).

  25. So, I try to import a macro in my program and this window appears but I don't even know where this file is located or if it even exists? I would like to copy them in this file so they could be linked anywhere on my mac or my iPad in a near future. To specify, I think it requires to copy my macros into this unknown file to be able to import them at all.
