  1. Hey Flex9050. I am up to date. Do you have designer installed and photo? Or are you using publishers stand alone? I feel like this is some kind of setting some place more than a bug but maybe its a bug.
  2. Did anyone figure this out? I just found out I'm having the same problem, white bg on text with ALL the colors turned off. I can't figure out where it's coming form. For now I guess I will type in designer and copy and past the text over to publisher. Doesn't matter which persona I'm in all white backgrounds. A fix that I'm using is type out what I want, add a style to it, then remove all the styles. For some reason this removes the white box

    Gutsiest Move I Ever Saw, Man!

    Thanks EducationPrinciple, good call on the stars. You know, I didn't even notice those until I was finished. I think I should've muted some of the city lights in the canyon too. But hey, just a fun fake poster, it's not like I work at Paramount LOL!
  4. In the spirit of the upcoming Top Gun Maverick movie. I had to find some royalty free stock images in AP 1.7 and make my own poster. Used royalty free images from AP 1.7 stock tab. AP brush pack to make afterburners and some wind break on the plane.
  5. Thanks Murfee for all your help! Added bonus fix from elk, which was happening to me as well. Thanks to the Affinity Team! Keep up the great work! Brett
  6. Hey Murfee, sorry hard to type all the steps. I missed some important ones. In the above I used the selection brush tool, (photo is AdobeRGB from NEF raw file). I select the subject, then fine tune it, then save the fine tune with mask so I can clean any bad edges. That is what you are seeing above. I am using the basic brushes, I usually pick the middle soft brush to give the edges a softer more realisitc cutout. But in these new ones I use crisp, middle and super soft brush to mask out samples. Now in these new photos, I opened the same photo, masked the background out by hand with NO refine tool. Then I changed the color and guess what. It appears that certain colors cause the black outline. Samples below. This must be why sometimes I see the black outline and other times I do not. Weird!!!! Something to add to the Affinty X-FIles LOL Thank you! Brett
  7. OK I think I have figured out what is going on with my transparencies. So if I remove the background from the subject it looks fine, proper, and a clean edge. As soon as I place a background behind it I get a weird blackish outline. Then I try to keep removing the edge via mask to clean up the black but the black just stays. I am uploading images so you can see hopefully what I'm talking about. Really focus on the line in the arm area, with and without a background to see the blackish outline. I'm really not sure why it does this and that is why I am wondering if it's me or the program? (I am using the latest 1.7 version) I first noticed this in version 1.6. I was designing a book cover. I removed a person from the background in Affinity Photo 1.6, it looked great. Then I placed the transparency into Design 1.6. When I was getting close to finished I was just fine tuning the edge in Designer and noticed the black outline thinking I did a shatty job in Photo removing the background. On a side note, the tiff placed in designer created the blackish outline, then I tried a PNG transparency and that seemed to work. Thank you, Brett
  8. I get that too, that is another issue for me. This problem I can't tell if it's a jpeg problem or a affinity problem. I just make sure my subject is 100% selected and let the background bleed and clean that up otherwise it looks terrible.
  9. HI Murfee, I tried to reproduce it and of course it worked fine. I do a lot of masking so the next time I notice it I will post back to this forum. Brett
  10. Hello everyone, Not sure if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong: AP-AD 1.7.1 When I remove a subject from a background I get a weird black outline after refine tool to mask. If I try to remove some of the black outline it just erases and keeps black outline, almost like a drop shadow. In 1.6 when I exported to TIFF I would see this but not PNG. Now in 1.7 I see it in the program after I refine and turn to mask. For example, If I remove background of someone with blonde hair i will see a black (almost like drop shadow look) around my selection. light hair with dark outline. I can try to recreate this and post an image if no one else is seeing this. Thank you! Brett
  11. Quick Update: I just updated to 1.7.1 and I can save to my desktop without a permissions prompt. So far so good!
  12. Hey mikerofoto, I'm not sure what version I have, I think it's the last free update there was for Nik. My Viveza is working in Luminar. Like I said before, I'm trying not to use Nik, but it's nice to know it will still work for now if I want to use it. I wonder if you can run old nik and new nik together until things get resolved?????
  13. Ah! I do kind of remember they sold it for a while and then gave it away for free. But, $150 better than $300. LOL Google is still using Nik though as Snapseed app. I feel this is the reason for them to buy Nik back in the day. I could be wrong.
  14. "firstdefence: "It's Affinitised" " That could work LOL, I'm serious, I catch myself saying I photoshopped this or that but I use Affinity Photo so I hate using that term. LOL! Glad to hear your NIK is working. Is that the new DxO version?
  15. And you have to download the free trial and see if what I'm doing makes sense for your workflow. Nik is great but I'm moving on.
