a very simple method to get an ortin effect can be based on what mr. orton explains on his site (www.michaelortonphotography.com): duplicate the background, add some blur to the copy (gaussian blur or lens blur work fine) and set the opacity of the copy to about 50-60%; then apply a slight overexposure to the original background layer (usually 1/3 stop is enough).


take care,

stefano

It's a nice effect. I've created a macro that kind of does this.

Thank you for posting your macro! :)

 

It creates a nice effect as it is, & by playing around with the blend mode of the exposure adjustment layer afterwards, even more dramatic (or cheesy, depending on your tastes) variations are possible.

In the meantime, Serif themselves have produced a tutorial around this topic.

On this page https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/photo/desktop/ Orton effect is not present.

Try https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/10119-legacy-official-affinity-photo-desktop-video-tutorials/ instead. In July, @Leigh updated the links so they should work again.
