Detailed Description of Each Macro included in Affinity Photo Macros For Photographers Package
Several of the macros comes with settings (like effect strength) that you can set when running the macro. If not, just double-click on the extra layers that the macro creates, to modify the settings.
You can the macros can be adjusted with the layer opacity slider if nothing else is mentioned below.
If you don’t like the effect you can easily undo the effect. Just press CMD+Z (Mac) or CTRL+Z (Win). Even though the macros consists of several steps when Affinity Photo runs the macro, it does so as a single step in the history log, so you only need to press undo once.
Dodge and Burn Layer
The Dodge and Burn Layer gives you the possibility to burn and dodge your image in a non-destructive way. Run the macro and choose a brush suitable for darkening or brightening specific areas in your image. With the Dodge and Burn Layer selected, choose white and paint on the areas you want to brighten. Choose a black color for the brush to darken areas. If the effect is too strong, just turn down the opacity of the brush. Usually, between 12-20% brush opacity gives you a nice subtle darkening or brightening effect to your image.
High Pass Dodge and Burn Brush
This Affinity Photo macro utilizes a high-pass filter, which is usually used for sharpening, to dodge and burn. It will help bring out details by focusing on much larger details than you would normally use for sharpening. Running the macro will give you black mask where you just need to brush over the areas where you want to dodge and burn. The brush already activated and ready for you to sweep over your image where you want extra highlights or shadows. Use the brush opacity to control the strength of the effect.
You don’t need to switch between a separate dodge and burn tool as the high pass filter will automatically darken and brighten when you use the brush. For a more subtle effect, change the blend mode of the layer to Soft Light. The default setting is Vivid Light. Alternatively, you can also lower or raise the opacity of the layer to decrease or increase the effect.
Structure & Contrast
This macro increases the visible details in the image along with the contrast. If you find that it is too much, just lower the opacity of the Structure & Contrast layer.
Detail Extractor Brush
The Detail Enhancer uses an inverted surface blur filter to bring forth the hidden details in the image. After running the macro, select the mask on the Detail Extractor Brush layer and paint on it with a white brush on the areas where you want more details. You can adjust the effect by changing the opacity of the brush.
The Pro Contrast Affinity macro adjusts the shadows, highlights, and mid-tones separately, by using luminosity selections. After running the macro, you can modify the contrast curves to fit your image.
Click on this macro to create a layer mask that detects the edges in your photo. The layer is set to invisible as a default because you would normally no display this layer. However, if you click CMD (Mac) / CTRL (Win) + left click on the layer thumbnail Affinity Photo will create a selection where only the edges are selected. You can use this for various precise modification, like sharpening that only affects the edges in your photo. When you run the macro you get the option to change the Edge Radius. You will get the best results if you keep this below 5 px.
Create Lomo style images with blurred edges and cross-processing and soft focus.
Add a trendy retro effect to images with a single click. Both the Lomo and Retro effects are very often used on photos on social media websites.
Movie Coloring Effect 1 & 2
These Affinity Photo macros simulate typical movie coloring. It uses cool blue/green tones in the shades, while the brighter areas get a warmer, orange look. The effect makes persons stand out more because of the complementary color relation used in the toning.
Fall Foliage Effect
Give your fall images a color boost with the Fall Foliage Effect macro. The macro will create a hue adjustment layer, that targets specific fall colors to increase the saturation. In addition, it adds a high pass filter for increased sharpening. To adjust the strength of the colors double click the thumbnail for the hue adjustment layer and modify the settings.
Gold Reflector Effect
This macro simulates using a golden reflector at the scene. It creates a live lighting adjustment layer. Double click it to adjust the light diffusion, direction, and strength.
Add a dreamy, soft, fantasy-look to your images with this Affinity macro. The Orton effect is achieved by blending a sharp image with an “out of focus” version of the same image. Per default, it is applied to the whole image, but I suggest that you apply it selectively by using the mask the macro creates.
Sunrise Tractor at the Beach
This macro is usually great with sunrise shots. It boosts the yellow and red colors a bit. Furthermore, it increases the vibrance, clarity, sharpness and contrast. Finally, it also adds a very subtle vignette. Everything non-destructively and you can modify each adjustment layers and live filters the macro generates.
Sephia Lite China Doll
This Affinity macro converts your image to black and white and adds a little Sephia tone to it.
