add color w linear light 

this macro allows the user to lighten/darken the color of selected parts of the picture with a paint brush.  To select the area and color on the mac, place the paint brush over the area and color that you want to accentuate.  Press option on a mac while holding the mouse over the area.  This selects the color (which can now be seen on the color tab in affinity photo.  Then brush over areas that you wish to accentuate.  The blend mode is set to linear light which is a combination of color dodge and color burn. So, it will lighten colors lighter than 50% gray and darken colors darker than 50 % gray.  The global opacity is set to 10% but the user can change that.
