Hello everyone !
Hello Team !

Well, i just want to make this request/suggestion that i believe will be of great interest for many in this community.
We love affinity Photo a lot but still there are point we often disagree with and tends to make use of other tools but we end up lose a lot of time and some time lose it all.
Among those so much wanted features i notice the precious Skin Tone Fine tuning.

Well, there are tons of methods that we can use to fine tune our skin tone but when looking closely they are intended for Pro or peoples who have considerable experience with Photo software, but when it comes to newbie ... they just lose it all.
So i propose a New Skin Tone Fine Tune - Live filter to be implemented; that live filter must allow us to work fast on skin tone applying quick and auto mask to the subject skin so we can work on it.
A bit more ?

Well, I suggest this :
an Auto detection of skin tone to be implemented the second we select that filter then a quick mask applied, allowing us to fine tune the mask because skin also share the same color as background and environment.

- After mask is okay then we can play with the sliders few of them can be : Smoothing, Brilliance, Vibrance, clarity, sharpening, blemish correction and maybe Hue (for those playing the Hulk stuff) ... do not forget to add a color/picking tool to allow average color picking (kind of manual method for those wanting to select precise areas or ranges)
- All this should happen in live mode so we see in real-time what we do and how is the output
- When all necessary tuning are done, just click apply
Making this a Live filter is a plus that will enable us to come back to it tuning again and again thus increasing the interest Newbie and learners (and even Pro) may have about Affinity Photo.

Believe this: the day you will offers us such quick way of working a lot of people will be at peace.
Please do not remove or delete the actual way of doing the same job as many people like to do things manually so they have to be satisfied.

May another one in this forum fine tune this suggestion for the good.
Blessings until this is implemented for the Good of Photography.
