  1. thank you John! Interesting; I've found auto-alignment to be most of the time producing inaccurate alignments - even with images from a tripod (let alone handheld) I also wonder whether this technique only yields results with extremely sharp lenses, where the sensor doesn't resolve all the detail procured by the lens. The kit and adapted lenses from the 80s that I use don't ever reach pixel-level sharpness
  2. interesting finds @John Rostron! Could you elaborate a bit on the alignment method you used? was it auto-align or was it manually micro-tuning the individual images' perspective? Also, how do the results compare to the original images? Any chance you could share the crop of one of the original 13 images for us to see? Thank you for helping out!
  3. I haven't had any luck with the technique; other than noise reduction which is awesome! I also can't understand the rational behind upscaling the images to 200% before importing them into the stack. What's the problem with upscaling them after the stack it created? It's dynamic anyways - isn't it? Unless this is for the auto-alignment algorithm to have more precision in alignment (though to be honest I find the alignment very ineffective) - Any thoughts on that?
  4. Might be the case, even though if I recall correctly the previous time I had the issue I wasn't using global colors at all, but I'm no longer 100% sure. Anyway, I'm glad these are a known issue, I hope there is a fix soon, since global color and symbols are really useful! Best regards, - Fotis
  5. This has been happening a lot with symbols - I've found an old thread that might be related (here). 1. I create a symbol so that I can place it on multiple artboards and test different compositions. I never turn symbol syncing off or detaching any instances. 2. Then I start changing the colors of certain elements inside the symbol. 3. At some point, a few of the symbol instances will stop syncing the color for some of their elements.All other properties of the very shapes sync just fine however. For other instances everything syncs, even the color! In the following video sample I use the 1st instance to rotate an element (everything is one symbol) and change it's color. The 2nd instance updates fine on both properties. For the 3rd (buggy) instance only the rotation updates (and not the color). Things started going awry after I duplicated the 3 colored elements inside the symbol, hid the originals and assigned global colors to them. I'd be happy to email a sample corrupt file for debugging purposes. cheers! bug.mov
  6. Is there a way to export global document colors to the SVG in a centralized way? eg. style/linearGradient or solidColor So as to be able to change one line of code and have all affected elements change their color at once! Thanks!
  7. I've been having an issue where I export a paragraph of text into SVG (without converting it to curves but relying on the system fonts) and some characters render differently in the browser (tested on both on the latest desktop firefox and the latest android samsung browser) as seen in the image below: On closer inspection it seems that the SVG adds certain tags to certain characters, isolating them - without an apparent reason however. it is easy to reproduce: create a new document use the type text tool type "Other All" as text (using Arial font) (for some reason the issue appears if there is another word before the word All! Other tested strings that produce the fluff are "A All B" and the "Unlock All Features" string) export to SVG The SVG should have isolated the Al characters into an unnecessary <tspan> element: <g id="Artboard11" serif:id="Artboard1"> <text x="209.036px" y="520.05px" style="font-family:'ArialMT', 'Arial', sans-serif;font-size:36px;">Other <tspan x="307.087px 331.099px " y="520.05px 520.05px ">Al</tspan>l</text> </g>
  8. I accidentally started 2 batch jobs with the exact same file list - I was trying to find a way to cancel one of the two - is there still no cancel button? would be very useful!
  9. hey I had the same question a few minutes ago! to achieve this: - select all the objects that you wish to prevent - at the Stroke studio (the button on the right where you can edit the stroke width etc) click on advanced - from there deselect Scale with Object option. Now the stroke won't scale with the object! (Do the opposite if you wish to make sure that the stroke retains its ratio to the object/document size after successive transformation)
  10. Hi, I wonder if there is some way to automatically crop/trim and downsample pixel layers to their visible portion and document dpi resolution so that the affinity designer file isn't bloated beyond necessary? I've found that Rasterize Layer does the downsampling, but when you have hundreds of such layers, it's hard to keep track which ones have been rasterized and which ones I've missed! Any function already in the software that I've missed? Thanks,-Fotis
  11. FWIW, I'm not a professional photographer so the price point is a concern of mine: For a few weeks now, I've been using DxO OpticsPro 11, since it is free if you download it by the the end of November. The speed and processing quality is rather good (imo much better than ACDSee, Aftershot, Darktable or Apple Photos). While it is not a fully fledged DAM/raw developer in the vains of lightroom, it's been very satisfying as a substitute for the Bridge+Adobe Camera Raw combo. I'm only missing gradient/brush masks, and perspective corrections (that can be found if you buy some plugins or upgrade to the Elite version) but for now I can finally live with that until something better comes out (Perhaps Luminar 2018?) hope this helps somebody!
  12. Thanks MBd, that's interesting! I must agree that probably Serif has it under control, there is time until the public release of iOS 11 and even then, it remains to be seen how this format affects our lives. Still, it will be interesting to see how (whether) Apple manages where google failed to convince everybody move away from jpeg!
  13. hah! I think I got to the bottom of it: There seems to be a bug that occurs when opening files via the Finder on the mac. Perhaps a similar one exists for the Windows explorer? I suppose if this gets resolved, deciding whether the default location of the Export dialog is the last folder, or the source folder, is IMO a minor issue since one can easily choose the last folder or the source folder with 2 clicks from inside the Save/Open dialog (inside the Where? dropdown there is a section called Recent Places and the recently accessed folders normally should appear there).
