Techniques from Lightroom in Affinity Photo


Recommended Posts

I really like to create dramatic b+w photos in AP.

Can someone tell me the tools in AP which are closest to 2 tools in Lightroom, which can be viewed in a youtube video:

"...he makes the sky darker..." (and the ground...)

 

 

and the second tool follows immediality as the lightnings / spots on the houses / bridge / heaven

Can you give me some comparable tools / techniques in Affinity Photo? What comes nearest?

I tried the gradient tool, but in LR you have 3 lines for example, in AP i got only two points with a far away gradient from that one in the video even if i add points in the slider.

Screenshot of tool 1 "to make the sky darker"

I am very grateful for your help

Hi,

it would be best to completely forget and unlearn all Adobe workflows. Trying to look for 1:1 replacements won’t help you at all.

There are uncountable training videos how to achieve identical or similar results with Affinity Photo, but you need to learn the Affinity way of workflow. 
Just look into the tutorial section of this forum, or go to YouTube and search for Affinity and dramatic black and white.

Please do not play teacher. This is annoying. You don't helped me here.

So you are really complain about not getting someone else starting google search for you? I actually did provide relevant information enabling YOU to find the requested help yourself. Mis-classifying this as teaching only shows missing respect and egocentric personality (now you can call me teaching with reason)
