Thank you, Bill! I like the way you find project for us, the challenges are good, the progress is like it should be...at least for me. If it is possible, I would like to learn more about using RAW, but I've a feeling few are using the RAW-format from their cameras. So I guess I've to try more for myself.
 
Another thing I would like, is how to add filters, I have a *few*  :laugh2: , and I guess others would like that too.

It is all up to you, Bill!  :painter: :yes01:

Grethe,   Yes on raw,, what is the name and model of your camera this will help me. There is quite a few filters in AP also there is the live filters,,, which filters do you have and would like to see used?  this will help me tell which can be used.

Hi Bill. I have Canon EOS 600D. I have already open RAW-files in AP and messing around. Guess that is the best way for now.

Filters, most of all i want Redfields filters. I could try myself, but I don't know WHERE to put them to show up in Ap.
Perhaps you could make a sticked post about filters?

Grethe: 
Which of the redfields filters do you have are they free or do you pay for them, ?
Some photoshop filters and some do not, but here is what to do; put your filters in a folder were you know they are at. then open Affinity Photo click on Edit slide down to Preferences click it then click on Photoshop Plugins, the click on Add the go to your filters folder and put them in then close out that window  if a window pops up asking yes or no click Yes , what that does is restart AP , Then go to top of AP click on Filters and you should see those filters if you do not see them , then they will not work,  also when you click preference and then photoshop filters look to the bottom of that window and put a check in the box lower left corner, it says; Allow unknown plugins to work.
hope this helps you
