Anyway to to Output depth map from an image with Affinity Photo?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I was wondering If there was away to extract/get an output of the depth map from an Image? Kinda like in Photoshop when you use the Depth Blur filter you can choose to export the Depth Map only to a new layer for example. This way you can fake fog in the shoot.

Would there be anyway to archive this with Affinity Photo?


Thank you for your time.

The PS filter uses machine learning (aka AI) to guess the depth of features in the image. It isn't really a function in the PS software, rather it sends a copy of your image to one of their servers, processes it and then sends the results back. I might be wrong, but all this makes it unlikely to be something that you will find soon in AP.

You could do something similar to what the filter software does and that is select the regions of similar depth and then use the Greys palette to specify a fill. Gradients could be used over areas where the depth transitions. It would be a bit tedious for images with lots of fine detail but some types of landscape photo, for example, would be pretty straightforward.
