Adjusting Curves based on selection from image


Recommended Posts

In photoshop when applying a curves layer there is a hand tool that allows the user to select a point in the image and that point will be represented on the curve so you can adjust based on a particular area of the photo.  Does this function exist in Affinity for iPad?  I searched and don’t see in the app that I do anything other then creating points on the curve and adjusting.

You can make a selection on the image layer and then apply the curve. It will only effect the selected area.

On the desktop version, the Curves adjustment has a "Picker" function. You click on Picker, then click+drag on the image, and Photo adds a node at the proper spot on the curve. That sounds like what you're asking for, but I have no idea if the iPad version of Photo includes that function.

No, it doesn’t.

I just found, just open curves adjustment and then with finger touch and drag on any place in image and it works ;)

Thanks, Good to know!
I suspect many of the 'missing' desktop features do actually exist on iPad, but not all have been given a ui control to allow us to access them.
