Recommended Posts

Hello,

I create 2 macro's, one for creating the liminosity masks and one for deleting them.
 

The .afmacro file is on the bottom of the post!

Enjoy!

(How to install)

1. Go to View > Studio, and check the Library. (See photo 1)

2. Go into your Library tab and click on the icon next to the library in the top right corner (3 stripes) and click on 'Import Macros' from the dropdown menu. (See photo 2)

3. Search for Luminosity Masks.afmacro. (See photo 3)

4. Congratulations you can now use the macro's (See photo 4)

You should check out these macros by SMadell, which don’t create lots of extra channels.

I already seen them :) but thanks!

I like mine more because its simple and I'm from photoshop and i like it doing that way :) 

Mine are 7 Lights & Darks and 3 Midtone channels. All at once.

Hi Jepsio, I imported your macro and run them on a photo but I do not get any output. Something happens because I notice the spinning wheel for a few seconds but when it stops I do not see any additional layer.

 

Any idea ?

 

Thx

Hi, 

Did you wait a bit? If you click on the Create button then you need to wait some seconds because it needs to load. Did you also check your channels tab? And also select your photo that you want to create channels for.

Heres a comment for 8 months later but... THANKS! This macro helps a bunch! I LOVE the blend options already built in to Affinity Photo but normal luminosity masking helps for creating multiple targets on a single layer.
