Hi I use Affinity photo 22.214.171.124 on a Win10 PC (Win fully updated). I think there is a problem with the Unsharp Mask tool in Develop Persona. If I sharpen an image, no matter if jpg or canon raw file (Canon EOS M3) and develop the image, the sharpness settings are lost. The same thing happens in photo persona when the unsharp mask layer is merged downwards or the image is rasterized. A reinstall of Affinity Photo did not help. The same happened in earlier beta versions, but not in the previous final. I hope you can help regards
I'm working on sharpening as it's a new concept for me, but ultimately necessary when editing RAW files. I don't think I've necessarily got this right, especially with dark colours. For reference, these have been taken with an iPhone 6s in natural light, are all PNGs at 1600px in width, output with an sRGB colour profile, with Bicubic sampling (apart from one image). For example, take the first image (1). It's without noise reduction, a clarity filter, or an unsharp mask. Notice the heavy noise (both colour and luminance) on the black t-shirt. The second (2) is with a denoise and clarity filter. The t-shirt here is too smooth, with zero noise on zoom at the heavy expense of detail. However, the third (3) image (which adds the unsharp mask) is perfect when viewed at a small size, but you can see a ton of noise when you zoom in. I'm thinking my sharpening technique is off here, but I could use some advice on whether this is acceptable. How can I retain the detail in the blacks, while not introducing noise when zooming in? I've tried setting the threshold, but I still get the problem of an undetailed flat t-shirt. I've also tried a High Pass filter first, which improves the initial sharpening, but as soon as the Unsharp Mask and Clarity filter are brought in, the noise returns. In short, I can't remove the noise and bring out the detail in the darkest elements without introducing noise and I'm getting annoyed. :-) Any advice, or am I simply overthinking it all and have got it right?
This GENIUS figured out a method that does edge-aware sharpening. The method is to do edge-detection on the image, and then using the detected edges as a mask to avoid sharpening the edges. It lets you massively sharpen textures while completely avoiding all halos around edges and it is the most amazing thing I have seen in a decade of photography. It's the biggest revolution since the invention of the Unsharp Mask. This technique is like the Yin to Unsharp Mask's Yang. The results are preferrable almost 100% of the time you want an unsharp mask. Because "haloed edges" are the bane of sharpened photos. If this is implemented, I would probably never use the regular Unsharp Mask again. Please consider creating a new "Edge-Aware Unsharp Mask" filter, which internally does all the work of finding edges and avoiding them when sharpening. So that we can keep all of the non-destructive power workflows of Affinity Photo, but still achieve this AMAZINGLY USEFUL new effect. www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVgfbiH4-fw PS: I don't see the embedded video above. If someone has the same problem, type this URL manually instead, to see the technique: youtube.com/watch?v=iVgfbiH4-fw PPS: Here is how to currently achieve this in Affinity Photo, with many minutes of very destructive pixel-based steps: youtube.com/watch?v=7EVXy6fc_rE This incredible technique begs for a built-in non-destructive filter.
Affinity Jack posted a topic in Tutorials (Serif and Customer Created Tutorials)Hi, In diesem Affinity Photo Tutorial zeige ich aus der Serie Affinity Photo Foto Optimierung wie man das Foto Grashüpfer verbessern kann. Hier geht es nicht um große Effekte, sondern um viele kleine Verbesserungen, die dann hoffentlich für ein besseres Ergebnis sorgen. Dabei versuche ich ein wenig den Effekt zu imitieren, als wenn man ein Makro-Objektiv benutzt hätte. Viel Spaß Euer Jack 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. In this grasshopper photo I try to imitate a little bit the use of a macro lens. Have fun your Jack Link to YouTube Tutorial Foto / photo: eigenes / self made
