raw shadows & highlights


Recommended Posts

In develop persona when I use the shadows and highlights sliders I get a response on the highlight slider, but nothing on the shadow slider.  I see no changes while using the shadow slider, the histogram moves for a second then returns back to where it started.  

 

It is a raw CR2 file using Affinity Photo Beta Version 1.5.0.37.

Can you upload a sample file that I can take a look at? I've just tried some images in 1.5.0.37, and both Shadows and Highlights adjust as expected.

I see where the slider works in jpeg's I was wrong about that, but the shadow slider won't work in my raw files.  The files are to big to attach.  I have no way to reduce the size without changing the format.  They're about 24-mb/cr2 files from my Canon 7d.

 

I didn't realize I didn't have the follow thread checked so I didn't know you had responded.  I have since checked it.  Please tell me how to get the file(s) to you.

Here's the link:

Hopefully this worked, I had to create an account there.  In the past I'd used a different service, I can't remember their name, that did not require you to download their program.  Let me know if you got the file.

I tried it with the same result : the shadow slider doesn't work.

 

Tried it on Pentax DNGs and it works

May the light be with you!

I have found that it works on some photos, but not others.  They are all shot with the same camera, a Canon 7d.  I have linked a few more samples.

 

Here's a couple where the shadow slider worked:

 

A sunset pic where I can see a change in the foreground using the shadow slider:

In this picture I can see the change in the surfer's wetsuit:

Here's another that the shadow slider did not work, could not see any change in the surfer's wetsuit:  I am editing this remark, I can now see a slight darkening when using the shadow slider in this pic now.  My mistake.

While editing the raw photo the exposure, blackpoint and brightness sliders all work with all pictures.  Just having a problem with the shadow slider.  It is not consistent, can't figure out why it works sometimes and not others.

 

Thanks, let me know if you have any problems with the downloads.

 

P.S.>>I am adding this edited remark:  On the last photo if I lower the blackpoint then the shadow slider has some effect.  If I don't lower the blackpoint I see no results with the shadow slider.
