Perspective correction tool + automatic levels adjustments

Recommended Posts

I recently scanned a batch of slide film photo's, and tried to process them using Affinity Photo. This however turned out to be much more time consuming than necessary after only two pictures I quickly resumed my workflow resorting back to Phothoshop and finished the batch much quicker.  In short: tw basic features I use quite frequently inside of Photoshop turned out to be missing:

1. Automatic perspection correction. You can straighten the horizon with just one click of a button. There is no need to drag a line across the horizon, or any manual further adjustments; one click and it's done! There are four modes and at least one of them works spectacularly across most of your pictures. Only in rare circumstances they give unusable results.

2. Automatic levels/curves adjustments. With a curves adjustment layer you can choose four different types of algorithms for automatic levels-based adjustments, when you select 'snap neutral midtones' it corrects for color shifts and doesn't introduce color distortions into your image. This makes for a really quick and safe fix that you can use across a lot of images. Make this an action/macro, assign it to a keyboard shortcut and there's another great fix with just one push of a button

I'm impressed by the amount of progress Affinity Photo has made in a short time. Sometimes I can work around some features I miss and sometimes you need to take a different aproach but features like these can save a lot of time and trouble or quite the opposite if they're missing.
