Great.  I for one love Affinity Photo (still learning how to handle personae) but I need Focus Stacking too for macro work.

Is the Macro Persona on the roadmap the same thing as focus stacking?

 

No. The Macro Persona is used to record and playback actions within the app. It's similar to Actions in PS.

Haha, I guess context is very important! I had forgotten that "actions" were going to be added, and didn't really think about naming it "macro" persona! ;)

"macro" means macro-program for geeks, while it means macrophotography for photographers (and maybe digital artists).

what about geek photographers?

:) :) :)


take care,

Given the double meaning of the word "macro" for photographers and geeks, perhaps the macro persona should be named something different?  "Script" persona?  "Action" Persona? "Command" Persona?

What about "Macros Persona" (plural)? I suspect the developers do not want to use "Action" because it would be too much like PS.

 

Alternately, maybe just make the "tooltip" for it more descriptive instead of just displaying the name (which we probably already know)? Something like "Create & use macro commands"?
