Hi, newbie in Affiinty photo.

I like black and white photo with a slight warmth to it.

coming from lightroom, after an image is in black and white, i can use split tone to add warm to my image.

I'm wondering is there anyway for affinity photo to achieve similar results?

When i add split tone to a black and white image in Affinity Photo, it doesn't seem to add warmth to the image.

Thanks in advance.

You could either add a Fill Layer (Layer > Fill Layer)  with a nice colour selected and change the blend mode to Colour and drop the opacity of the Fill Layer to get the effect you want or you can use the Split Toning Adjustment filter.

@firstdefence thanks for the detailed explanation. it works.

just for someone's else visiting this thread, previously my split tone didn't work because the split tone layer is before the black/white layer :>

newbie mistake. :>

You can make the split toning adjustment filter a child of the image so that it only affects that layer, any layer below it will be unaffected.
