What's your top three pragmatic 1.7 wishlist?

Recommended Posts

1.  select all same color tagged layers at once while selecting one of them in viewport  with a special hotkey  

2.  showing only same color tagged layers once selecting one of them with another hotkey . Kind of a layer comp

3. duplicating a layer would inherit its color tag

1. Make Tone mapping persona aware about spherical/cylindrical panoramas - currently if I edit a pano in equirectangular projection,  Tone mapping persona applied different correction for the left and the right edges. It doesn't play role for normal photographs, but if the edited pano  is being displayed in an interactive viewer, this difference results in very visible ugly seam. 

There is a workaround - make a copy prior to tone mapping, shift one copy 50% by horizon, apply identical tone mapping, shift back and lay over the first tone mapped image. The seam can be masked with part of the shifted*2 panorama. BUT the ugly 'vortex' in the zenith and nadir still remains, because the stripe of pixels coming alongside the top and bottom edges of the image. Sometimes this vortex can be easily retouched, sometimes not.

2. Same for Developing persona - it has wider selection of tools for editing color, sometimes I use it for 'tone mapping' of my HDR panoramas.

3. To speed up the Tone mapping persona. For larger images - say 20000*10000 - it takes eternity to apply tone mapping corrections.

  1. when I click open a file from Finder, that Affinity Photo come to the foreground with the file open
  2. when I access a feature that requires a value be entered, have the focus automatically be on that entry field so I don't then have to click it to enter a value. 
  3. alt+drag to duplicate a selections and layers
  4. accessing a tool another time will have the previous value used automatically entered.

I try to resist complaining about things that are different than Photoshop that I've used since the early 90s, but some of this stuff is just so frustrating and causing more moving back and forth between keyboard and mouse.

Back here, as it's a moving target... (even in order of priority)

1. Stability (with this I mean, too, reliability : fixing bugs / incorrect behaviors ).

2. Performance.

3. That I wouldn't see the black rectangles when zooming in-out with the mouse wheel...  :)
