KNOWHOW THREE GREAT WAYS TO CREATE COLOUR
Adjustment Layers are the backbone of any good editing software, and Affinity Photo has them in spades. These are three amazing ways to alter your images’ colour.
COLOUR BALANCE Colour Balance is a much-used tool. It’s responsible for values of colour in a particular image, and can be used to subtly grade you work, or even create a dramatic mood by cooling down the scene, or using it to mimic soft warm summer light.
HSL HSL stands for Hue, Saturation and Luminance. It allows you to choose specific colour channels, and alter the value of each hue, meaning you can change all of your original colours. You can also control the saturation and brightness.
SPLIT TONING Split Toning assigns different colour values to the highlights and shadows. You can then choose a bias to decide which colour dominates. This simple technique can create a wild effect, or just introduce complementary colours into your work, which really draws in the viewer’s eye.
