Hello. I love Affinity Photo. I was happy to move from Adobe PhotoShop to Affinity Photo when I first discovered it. That said, there are a number of features that were very useful to me in Adobe PhotoShop that appear to be missing from AP. If some of the following features are in fact missing, is somebody able to tell me when/if they will be included?

 

Full-screen preview shortcut

Preview the whole document in full-screen without the borders of the UI with a shortcut command. Just the one shortcut command - not a series of shortcuts. Also, I don't wish to use the 'toggle full screen' option as the transition needs to be instantaneous.

 

Compare to the original photo (prior to modification) shortcut

Sometimes it is very useful to see how far you've come - to check how the original looked, with one shortcut.

 

On/off preview button when making adjustments/adding filters

Currently, mirror view and split view exist as ways to compare the modification to the original. But why not a simple on/off button? I would prefer that to the existing options.

 

Export image preview quality

During the export stage as you are deciding how to compress your image, it would be beneficial to have a preview showing what the image will look like under those compression settings. It would better allow to manage how to export an image in reduced file size but maintain good quality.

 

Edit image EXIF data

When uploading an image to the Internet, I want to first be able to strip private information such as GPS coordinates. Apart from what, I would to append additional information to an image in the EXIF information.

 

Merge colour tones from another image.

I remember PhotoShop had a feature that allowed you to adjust the colour of an image based upon the palette of another image. This was very useful if you had one image where the colours were all wrong in a collection where the colours were fine. So you could tell the editor to take the yellow from the better image and tell the worse photo "that's what yellow is meant to look like", and it would correct the whole photo based upon that adjustment.

 

Merge exposure from another image

Same principal as above. You tell the editor that you want the exposure levels of one image to translate to another image.

Hey @avocato I'm not a pro, but i use sometimes...

 

About the "Full screen preview" you can use like Photoshop, just press the Tab botton and you can see where you work or the image in full screen.

 

On/off preview button when making adjustments/adding filters - Just make a copy of original image and push that layer to the top of the other, when you like to see the older and edited file just make that layers visible.
