Better Gaussian Blur

Recommended Posts


I read this article, and think Affinity (all of them) need a more accurate blur, square brightness, average (or whatever else), then square root brightness. Simple compared to the other things, like photo's inpainting tool.

(If you are really curious, the other layer in the screenshot is a picture of a pine marten)

As a pro app It would be great if affinity designer (and of course also photo, but I haven't used that to date) supported a linear color workflow by default. That is where the gamma is taken into account for color manipulations. Best would probably be to have a gamma setting on a per document basis. 

As far as I know all software with professional color management has an option for this somewhere in the settings. Especially if this is used in a production pipeline that relies on proper sRGB handling this functionality is critical. 


Hoping to see that soon on the feature roadmap.
