Affinity Photo – Activ8 issue 40 -Ghost and Castle

This is a written tutorial adaptation of a Photoshop video tutorial by Blue Lightning TV. In which I have added a vintage image of a lady and added it to a castle doorway background. Then made the lady look as ghostly as I could and try and stick to the original tutorial as much as possible.

Make A Black and White Macro from Olivio’s video tutorial

Olivio Sarikas made a video tutorial recently showing 5 different ways to make some black and white images

I am using one of those methods to make a Macro, so it will be easier to remember what to do to get the results like Olivio has shown.

Hello Carl,

I just discovered your tutorials and "Making Your Own Styles" is just what I was looking for. I wanted to save gradients. Something odd happened when I went to apply them and I thought you might know why.

When I open a blank document and place a photo in it, then click on the gradient style I created, it applies perfectly. But if I open a photo, or drag a photo into the workspace, and click on a style, it doesn't apply. When I go to the default styles and click on one of them, it does apply. I was wondering what it is about the style I created that is different and won't apply to a photo that has been 'opened' as opposed to 'placed'.

I hope you can help. Thank you.

Nancy

Hi Nancy,

Not 100% sure why you are having problems with the 'Styles'. The main difference as far as I can see is the Layer types. An image added via the Place command will be an (image) layer and an image opened as a jpg will be a (pixel) layer. In theory though, both layer types should be affected by a Style. If placing an image works best use that method. 

I did try the same thing on the owl image I posted above. The Style I used did affect the 'Placed, Image layer' much more than the 'Opened jpg, Pixel Layer'. But if I rasterised the 'image' layer making it a 'pixel' layer the style I used didn't affect it as much.

So, I have to surmise that Styles don't work too well with pixel layers, they need vector traits to work on, rather than flat pixel layers.

I guess some Styles will work the same on both types of layers. But in truth I really don't know the answer. Sorry
