Actions recording and bridge similar to Photoshop

Recommended Posts

I am a pro fashion and advertising photographer and have been at expert level in Photoshop since the mid 1990's.

I am totally blown away by Affinity Photo having played with the trial for several days now. This is a PS killer on many levels but as a pro user of PS, I and many colleagues find that the Action recording feature is by far the most valuable asset on a daily basis. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE see what you guys can do to create this feature and you will kill PS.

Here are just a few examples of time saving with Actions;

1. A folder with 30 already prepped images needing a curve adjustment, colour balance, resize and copied into a new folder so they can be uploaded later to a printing lab to meet that labs colour settings.

2. Twenty images needing a duplicate layer desaturated and a soft light blend through to background and saved for additional enhancements later.

3. A folder full of multi layer images needing flattened, resized, converted to CMYK and copied into a new folder.

Any of the above only takes 60 seconds to achieve with a recorded Action but could take 15-45 minutes image by image.

I say again, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE make Actions a feature asap.
