I think a photo could be very helpful.
In AP, it should not be a problem to get comparable results.

Hi,

 

i now went through dozens over dozens tutorials on Youtube and learned a lot about AP. But...

 

the only thing i figured out that my photos do have enough information in the red chanelle, but i'm still unable to improve them. Everything i'm trying out results in a more worse phozto than before. Any help appreciated.

Add an live adjustment layer -> Levels

Klick on Master and select Red

Move the Blackpoint-slider to the beginning of the histogram and on the other side the Whitepoint-slider to the end.

Do this also with Green and Blue

It's hard to say what the actual colours were like without being there so I just had a go at brightening it up a bit.

Oh, and unlike Affinity's way of doing things the "before" picture is on the left and the "after" picture is on the right :ph34r:

Tap channel mixer adjustment and raise red to say 116%. The photo info will now appear in the red layer (previously black.) Photo looks much better already. Now apply whatever adjustments you like to finish. Maybe Levels and  Clarify.

Hello huebi,
some approaches have been shown to you,
and that's my way how i would edit the photos.
So that you can understand it, I have made the editing in a macro.
Playing with the sliders, so that the photo meets your expectations.

cheers
