Any Blend modes that takes Hue from Blend layer and retains S and Lightness (Not Luminosity) from Bottom Layer?


Recommended Posts

Software version: Affinity Photo Beta 1.7.0.243.

The Hue Blend mode in affinity is taking Saturation and Luminosity from bottom layer and Hue from Blend layer. 

Could anybody suggest is there any blend mode that retains Hue and Lightness from bottom layer and Hue from blend layer.

Bottom Layer: HSL (300, 100, 50)

Blend Layer: HSL (100, 100, 50) (Blend Mode Normal)

Result with Blend mode Hue: HSL (100, 100, 30) Vs (What I want is (100, 100, 50) )

Hey Omprakash Selvaraj,

I've heard back from the developers and this is by design.

We use the same maths as can be seen in this PDF spec (the same as Photoshop)

Yes. I understand that Adobe works that way too. Because Luminosity is to be retained from bottom layer on most occasions.

But latest version of GIMP offers two kind of "HUE" blend mods one that retains Saturation and Luminosity from bottom layer and another "HUE" blend mode that retains Saturation and Lightness from bottom layer.

Hope we expect this in future version of Affinity.

I've always understood Luminosity and Lightness to be interchangeable, ie; the same thing.
