In my opinion you need a way to collapse the new information, so that when I first look at the list I see only the titles, maybe in front of the titles the icon that links to vimeo and youtube. 

 

Thanks to @Bri-Toon, I’ve learned that on these forums we can manually add ‘spoiler’ markup to make some of our post content initially hidden.

 

Here is an example.

 

Just enclose the content in {spoiler} and {/spoiler} tags, but use square brackets instead of curly braces.

I like Alfred's suggestion.  More information would be good, especially for new users, but adding descriptions and keywords makes it rather cluttered and as manu schwendener  said, simply too overwhelming.

I feel so special.


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!

If you (as forum admins) can insert a post after post1 this would be a possible solution, too:

Post 1 stays as it was, titles only, grouped as it is. This is the perfect overview for the videos.

Post 2 = expanded version.

Post 1 and Post 2 would link to each other, in the sense of "expand all" / "collapse all" - best at the top and the bottom of both posts.

Hey everyone, to coincide with the release of version 1.6, here are some new tutorials! It's a mix of new 1.6 features, revisions to old videos, and general tutorials covering functionality and techniques. Hope you find them useful!

Hi, when I select a new video on Vimeo, the video will play but not download. No matter what size I choose.
What am I doing wrong?

These video tutorials are a really great support for those of us getting started with Affinity. Thanks.

One question: is there a way of downloading batches of them in one go for future reference? At present I'm downloading them one at a time...

I always download these fine tutorials from Vimeo for an easier later usage.

Usually in a 1080p resolution and have a question: why there are very often two files of the same resolution but different sizes?? (usually on higher resolutions 1080,2K)

 

For example latest "Uplift Epic skies" in 1080p have two files: one 112,393Mb and other 103,971Mb

Which one to use?

These are truly amazing. The narration is articulate and cuts straight to the heart of the matter. The blow-ups of drop down menus and selections eliminate doubt. The tuts are so well done that they sold me on Affinity Photo, which I have purchased with no subsequent regrets. I have enjoyed using them to master each feature. In the words of a great English poet, you have managed to both teach and delight.

THANK YOU!! I was trying to remember enough of the title, to find this via a search. I had forgotten a step

Hey all, I've slowly been posting new videos over the last week, so here are three new ones for you!

The Nighttime Architecture video is a standout; it's a 17 minute complete walkthrough of an image edit from start to finish - I took the photo during a recent trip to Bern, Switzerland and got a few interesting shots, but this one came to life with a bit of editing and careful treatment of colour. Let me know if you find these workflow-focused videos useful!

Hi, the architecture one was illuminating (pun intended :D) when you used Reflect blending mode. Thanks!

 

 

I'd like to comment on the Using Adjustment Layers on Masks:

 

Although you are dropping the alpha-targeting curves adjustment on the thumbnail of the mask, the adjustment actually becomes a thumbnail-nested child of the pixel layer, not a child of the mask;  the adjustment is applied to the alpha of the result of masking the pixel layer, not the alpha of the mask itself. That distinction is irrelevant to the rendering of your example where the mask is applied before the adjustment, but it can be significant in the rendering of documents with other nesting of objects.

 

Thumbnail-nested objects proceed in top-down order of the list in the Layers panel, in contrast to the bottom-up progression of clip-nested objects and layering in general. When an object is dropped on the thumbnail of an already thumbnail-nested object, it is inserted in the sequence of thumbnail-nested children of the parent object instead of becoming a thumbnail-nested child of that already thumbnail-nested object. 

 

When an object (be it a mask, adjustment, filter, pixel layer, vector, etc) is in the thumbnail-nested position, the Affinity apps currently do not allow us to give it a child or access any children that it may already have from before it became thumbnail-nested in some object.

 

If the mask had been a clip-nested child of the pixel layer, then the adjustment would have become a child of the mask itself when dropped on the mask's thumbnail.

On Quick Inpainting Crooked Horizons, this is useful but refers to tilted horizons. I have some truly crooked horizons from wobbly iPhone pans, and if there is a solution for those that doesn't involve hours of nudging I would be interested.

On Using Adjustment Layers on Masks, I'll save this for when I understand more, but for right now, what do you mean by 'to matte' in this context? ('Brush over the hair to matte it," 'hair is a little thin from the matting.') Not a paperboard border, not a non-specular surface, ... ?

Thanks for all the feedback so far, in response to the architecture workflow video posted above I've produced a portrait retouching workflow video which you can see here:

It's 25 minutes long and covers a variety of techniques including:

  • Initial RAW development
  • Working in a wider colour space
  • Frequency Separation
  • Retouching tools including Blemish Removal, Patch Tool, Healing Brush, Clone Brush and Inpainting Brush
  • Selection Refinement
  • Quick Mask mode
  • Mask layers and tweaking matte spill with Curves/Levels
  • Brush work to enhance tones
  • Masking on adjustments/live filters
  • Final sharpening
  • Export and conversion to sRGB colour space

 Hope you find it useful! I would hazard a guess that these more workflow-focused videos are quite useful, so I hope to produce more of them in the not-too-distant future. Thanks again.

@James Ritson

 

It's a term that refers to masking the background or foreground for compositing. It's more commonplace when dealing with video (e.g. green screen keying, you have "matte spill" and other options related to the term) but also applies to what we're doing with selection refinement and masking in Photo. If you're after some light reading there's a Wikipedia article on it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matte_(filmmaking) - hope that helps!

I don't know of a video tutorial for this, but if you want to import the brushes from your Brush Categories folder you just need to choose the 'Import Brushes' option on the Brushes panel menu.

I really wish someone would do an in depth black and white conversion from a raw file. I think I have seen all the black and white videos and non of them give a complete workflow and show what Affinity photo has to offer in this area. I really think black and white is being neglected, please help.

Regards

Mikep
