I made some curves adjustments for AD and AP which I'd like to share with you.


the attached Affinity file features embedded documents so that you can easily preview the effect of all curves on a single photo and then choose a curve that fits best/ gives you a good starting point/ idea.


You can add them to your AP though opening the document, selecting each group, selecting the "curves" adj, so that it's panel opens up, click "add preset". (I've made a feature request to make that easier)

You can then access them by the "view > studio > adjustments" panel which is active by default (only available in AP)


please don't overdo it  :) 

blend modes, opacity and blend ranges can, and should be adjusted upon your needs   :)


for more information about such techniques you can have a look over here







PS:   similar presets for the "channel mixer" are available here

PS: similar presets for "LUT" adj. are available here


PS: here is a great resource to really understand curves








just added some Black and White adjustments too FWIW  ;)
