Affinity Photo Macros for Photographers

Affinity Photo Macros for Photographers


Everyday photographers are struggling to find time to edit their photos. Even though you might find the time to edit some of your photos, remembering the specific techniques to get the best result, is challenging if you don’t use each particular post-processing techniques each day.

If you are like most photographers, you want to use a professional and proven method to edit your photos. You might google a tutorial for how to add a specific look to your photos using Affinity Photo or google how to use Affinity Photo to enhance details in your image or help you add contrast like a professional photographer. And you might find a method that works for you.

But, do you know what the most shocking part of it is?

It’s that even though you spend a lot of time finding and learning complicated post-processing techniques if you don’t use them almost every day, you will forget them and have to find the tutorial again and spend the time to apply each step again and again.

It’s very time-consuming googling and trying out different methods. You might find a technique that works for you. And that’s all very good.

Even if you know a particular post-processing technique by heart, it often involves a lot of steps and clicks that you have to do in a specific order to get the result, for every single image. Does it sound familiar?

Don’t worry. Before long, wasting your time fumbling around in Affinity Photo is over.

To stop from wasting your time, I have created the Affinity Photo Macro Package, which allows you to apply professional post-processing techniques in Affinity Photo with just a single click. Say goodbye to using mental energy to remember specific post-processing methods. Goodbye to performing the same steps over and over again to achieve a particular look.

Until now, photographers wanting easier job post-processing their images in Affinity Photo have been on their own in having to find the best techniques for themselves and applying them step by step for each image. However, with the Affinity Photo Macros for Photographers, you can now get more time to chase your dream shot and less time trying to remember many commonly used techniques for processing images.

What’s included in Affinity Photo Macros for Photographers pack?

hese Affinity Photo macros will help you go from raw, unedited photos from the camera to amazing in no time.

The Affinity Macros for Photographers are designed to help you achieve both the everyday tasks you do again and again in Affinity and special tasks, that are difficult to remember because you only use them occasionally.

The Affinity macros/actions are fully adjustable and transparent in letting you see, what they do.

Many of the macros enable you to change the effect strength. Double click on the layers generated by the macros to modify the settings, so it fits your particular image. However, the ‘hard work’ of doing a number of specific things in a particular order has been taken care of with these macros that can help all photographers using Affinity Photo to speed up their workflow.

I have translated the same effective and proven techniques, I know from Photoshop into my professional workflow in Affinity Photo. And with great success. I have saved the best techniques in this macro package allowing you to benefit without all the hard work.

But why should you pay for macros for Affinity Photo?

You can get free macros for Affinity Photo several places on the Internet. However, none of them present a complete package with professional level macros created with photographers in mind. So you could readily spend a lot of hours scanning the web for similar macros. But is it really worth it to waste your time, trying to save just a few dollars? How much is your time worth?

Detailed Description of Some Of The Macros Included in the Affinity Photo Macro Package

Several of the macros come 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.

Pro Contrast

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.

Edge Mask

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.

Lomo Effect

Create Lomo style images with blurred edges and cross-processing and soft focus.

Retro Effect

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.

Orton Effect

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.
