Layer Fill . . . Is It Really That Hard???

Recommended Posts

To the developers:

Layer fill, which provides some really nice adjustment possibilities (and works best with the "Special Blend Modes") should not be something too difficult.

In your "Lens Filter" adjustment layer, you already have a slider for "Optical Density" . . . which is, in effect, not much different from having a "Layer Fill" option. The only shortcoming is that it is attached to this layer which will not allow for gradient filters or gradient maps to have their "layer fill" adjusted, which will never work by just allowing "opacity adjustment" for layers.

I've posted numerous videos explaining the difference, and since you have the"optical density" slider already available in the "Lens Filter" adjustment layer, it shouldn't be such a great stretch to adapt to a "layer fill" for individual layers in Affinity Photo.

Also, please rename the "Layer Fill" button in the FX panel to something MORE APPROPRIATE. It confuses newbies and those who do not want to take the time to understand what is what.
