  1. Hi there, I’ve got a photo of two signs that I’m trying to remove the shadows in the corner from. I know that I could use the clone tool to remove it, but I have to do it on many photos and that would be incredibly time consuming. I’ve tried so many things and none of them seem to work. Does anyone have any quicker ideas on how I could remove these shadows? Thanks :)
  2. Hello, I am trying the Windows free trial. I have been loading RAW files and trying to process them. When I adjust the Shadows and Highlights my photo gets real muddy. Photo 1 is right out of the camera Photo 2 is after adjusting only the Shadows and Highlights. The muddiness begins as soon as I adjust the Highlights down. I tried the same photo in ON1 Photo Raw 2018 with just adjusting the same and the photo is clear and sharp. I really want to use Affinity but comparing my results with other apps is not convincing me. Your help would be appreciated.
  3. I'm new to the forums, so hi! I'm having difficulty with adding inverted drop shadows - the kind you could add with DrawPlus - but there doesn't seem to be a function for them in Affinity. Is there a workaround that's not an excessive amount of work? I need to add the inverted drop shadows to detailed drawings, as if there was a shadow on the ground of an image standing upright. I need to add them to multiple images on each page. Here is a simplified example from another user's post: Thank you! Anj
  4. Great work - loving the new release! Slightly faster in all areas. I tested RAW (develop) using Shadows and Highlights. 1. I tried a standard MASTER setting shadows to 100% (all looked as expected) 2. I tried creating a mask (centre dark area of the house) THEN setting shadows to 100% (they were not as bright as 100% in step 1 above), with hardness set to 100%, as you can see. I believe Highlights is the same. I did not test other sliders...... ! Let me know, cheers, Paul
  5. Hi all, something I've always felt frustrating about Serif products is the saving of styles. I create a box with a red border at four points. I then had a drop shadow and a couple of other effects. I say this is the style and it saves everything; the fill, the border colour and thickness and the drop shadow and any other effects that I've added. I really wanted to simply save the effects so that I can have a drop shadow style save that I really like and apply to anything without a) having to hand make the drop shadow every time from the effects panel or b) have the fill and border change and have to correct that afterwards. Is there a way to do this or would it be on the roadmap for down the road? Thanks very much.
  6. Would like to see a Texturizer filter and the abllilty to use PSD images as added textures similar to those in PS and Elements.I apply stock textures such as canvas and/or custom textures like wood or foliage to creative images. Also, control of the effects could be improved. For example, the drop and inner shadow effects would be much effective if they could 'fade' like black to transparent gradient. I think the grid that appears with the perspective correction tool should be fixed rather than move with the adjustment to act as vertical reference lines. I've cut the PSCC cord and think AP is a strong challenger but, as with all things, it could be improved a bit. Thanks for providing the opportunity to suggest and request improvements.
  7. Hello dear Affinity-Team, I really want to thank you for making such a great iOS app. It’s so much fun to edit and create images. However I got some major problems with the raw development. I know that the app is not comparable to any desktop raw development and is not meant to be one. However the raw development was advertised as feature. Unfortunately it is completely useless for me when I try to edit 25MB RAW files from my SONY A6300 on my iPad Pro. But I think Affinity Photo should at least hold up with a free iOS app called „VSCO“. Look at the two pictures I attached, I didn’t pay attention for reducing highlights or any other feature except recovering shadows. created with „VSCO“ increasing the shadows by 100 % created with Affinity Photo increasing shadows by 100% It is quite obvious that Affinity Photo looses all Details in the shadows. Why is that, if a free iOS app can do better (however I don’t like the app at all and love affinity photo)? Am I doing something wrong? I would love to be able to recommend affinity photos for raw development, but as of know it’s simply too bad for that, shadows just being an extreme example for minor quality results in the raw development of affinity photo. I hope that the problem gets fixed soon! And again: I’m not comparing it to a professional desktop application. I think affinity photo could do a lot better! Kind regards, David B.
  8. How come the shadows adjustment inside the HDR or anywhere you see this slider, there is minimal change in the shadows? The highlights slider acts the way i expect though.
  9. I have a problem by using the Shadow and Highlight sliders of the Develop Persona. Please compare the two results. The only thing I tweaked have been the Highlight slider to -100% and the Shadow slider to +100%. All other switches set to OFF/Unchecked, in Camera Raw and also in Develop Persona. The only exception was the usage of the Camera Colour Profile "Neutral" the RAW file offers (not available in Develop Persona), but this only affects subtle the colours. Camera Raw also applied the automatic lens correction profile, which is also not recognised by Develop Persona. Everything else was disabled (sharpening, denoise, etc.). Please see attached results. The one on Develop Persona is unfortunately much worse than the one of Camera Raw/Lightroom. I also attach the RAW file. I am very keen on your reply to this, and I really appreciate in advance. Hey guys, there is a problem on upload of Lightroom/Camera Raw generated JPGs to Affinity Forum sites, this error only occurs if I want to upload the Adobe generated JPG sample: Best regards, Roland RAW File: DSC00644.ARW Camera Raw Output attached as Zip: DSC00644-CameraRaw.jpg.zip
  10. When in Develop mode, after making an Overlay Gradient, when I try to adjust Shadows (under Shadows & Highlights) it doesn't do anything. The Highlights adjustment works fine but Shadows doesn't.
  11. I constructed a beautiful looking multi-micrograph panel in affinity designer after manipulating raw tiff images in affinity photo. The panel looks fine and is attached A screen shot looks find and is attached When I export to pdf in order to submit to a journal, dark shadows appear over parts of the figure. I tried copying each panel into a new designer document but that didn't work. I figure there is some bizarre setting i've toggled on for some of the panels?

  12. In Photo 1.5.1.54 for Windows I have encountered, that Adjustments in Color Balance for the Midtones and Shadows are doing the same changes in the same color frequencies. They change the same places on the pictures :( Highlights seem to be OK. It seems to be working more only like the Split Toning in 2 separated frequencies then in 3...... Thanks Jindra
  13. What will be the best way to remove the shadow from the front sail on the left boat in photo1? and the shadow from the back sail in photo 2 I tried for hours and still not happy. https://www.dropbox.com/s/fl2sp4jdeirkxnr/Photo1.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/zdfszj1xpg2vt7i/Photo2.JPG?dl=0 Thank you
  14. Hey guys, I am looking for a possibility to create multiple Luminosity Masks with channels, so that I have several channels for lights, shadows... The problem is, that you can't multiply/intersect selections like in Photoshop (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4mG6vlJFNQ). And I do not mean the overlapping function. Thanks for Your help!
  15. Say you want you want to draw a crow bar, how would i shade it on the curved parts using the gradient tool. So far i know how to shade a circle or rectangle using the gradient feature. And designs ive done which needed shading on curves ive had to make a few seperate darker layers and then used a blur tool to make it look like a gradual shadow. Do any of you know how this can be done an easier way? Thanks in Advance
  16. Hi, I have just started to work on AP yesterday and I have realised one thing as Adobe Lightroom user; Highlights and Shadows adjustment algorithms on AP doesn't work like Adobe. If I adjust highlights&shadows on Adobe it responses with mid tones and doesn't create fringes, but with AP they work so extremely, for example when removing with sky highlights I can't manage to have correct sky view anymore coz it effect all the photo extreme way. Do you have any idea how I can deal with it or do I apply somethings wrong? Thank you, Oflatun.
  17. I've downloaded Affinity Designer Trial to see if I can get it to export an SVG of a purely vector design. For this project, it's incredibly important that the final product be an SVG that has zero rasterized elements in there so it can scale to multiple screen resolutions. The problem is that, while I've got the design looking good (well, as good as I can get it, being a programmer and not a designer!), when I export to SVG **without rasterizing unsupported effects** -- which I thought SVG supported shadows and gradients on a transparent background, right? -- the file has neither of those. I've attached the afdesign doc and a resulting SVG. Tried reading said SVG in Chrome and Firefox as well as Apple's Quick Look (which I believe uses Preview's built in magic magicness) and the shapes and colors are fine, just no drop shadow, no gradient, no transparency. Input appreciated. Thanks all. SVG Looks like this in quicklook: Postal Logo (Affinity) 2.svg Postal Logo 2.afdesign
