The majority of my photograph editing is performed by using dodging and burning techniques in Adobe Photoshop. When doing dodging and burning, I created a dodging and burning extension panel where I use the history brush. I looked for a way to try and recreate that extension panel for the Affinity Photo application.
Unfortunately, there is no way that we can program external extension panels and have them brought into the Affinity Photo application so I have re-created the dodging and burning brush tool set which can now be imported into the Affinity Photo application.
The brush presets reside in their own category and are kept separate from other brushes, making it easier to locate them.
The dodge and burn brush toolset is fully compatible with Affinity Photo Mac and Windows versions.
