  1. Here are a few things to comment on that I think are being overlooked: This thread exists within a section of Affinity's forum under "Feature Requests & Suggestions" - My message is a Feature Request and a suggestion about why it is needed. None of the feedback / flashback to my comment has provided a justifiable reason to not warrant the addition of the image trace feature. I have seen the developers mention that an image trace feature is only not currently implemented because they are unhappy with the existing performance of their version of image trace. In other words, not only is my Feature Request valid, but they agree and have been working on it. Adding this feature will in no way damage the viability of the program or make it less desirable as @JET_Affinity seems to imply. It will only make it more desirable because it will service an additional user base. If existing users don't like / want to image trace, then they don't have to. As for an argument that they should not implement this feature because they charge a comparatively small fee for their software already. Well I expect that the Affinity team would love it if their software became the premier #1 software used by all designers. They are working to get there from what I can see, by offering what those at the top offer but doing it better. But the Affinity software will never make it to the top if it is missing key components. We as Users are in an extremely fortunate position with the Affinity team because they are currently working to build their name. This means we can get their very excellent software for much less than it's actual value. They are being very smart about their business plan if you ask me. I keep saying this software looks great, but I think it can still improve, and adding Image Trace is one particular way they can do that.
  2. Indeed Mark, I am invested in it. I heard about Affinity Designer - it was recommended to me by a colleague. "Have you heard of this new software called Affinity? It's winning all kinds of awards and sounds pretty neat" So I went and took a look at it and found they are basing their foundation off of software with *No Subscription* - Well I immediately fell in love as I watched the demos and learned about it's features. It seemed to be the perfect solution for everything I could ask for. So yes, you could say I am invested. Then as I delve in I see there is no Image Trace --- "What's this?" I say as I double check to see if it's true. You could equate this to a company that sells tools making a high end toolbox kit [Screwdrivers/saws/etc] and leaving out the hammer; one of the most basic and required tools. I don't want to move on Mark - I WANT this program. It's great! But I want it to come with the darn hammer!
  3. Yup. And so is the one I already have. If I'm going to image trace then I'll use a program that can image trace - makes sense. But what about buying a new program that doesn't image trace when what I want to do is image trace? See the problem there? Honestly it's a little confounding to talk about a program that doesn't do something it should, then the defender tries to support it by offering some other program that can do what the first program should already be doing. I already said this - the Affinity programs look great, but Affinity Designer SHOULD image trace, it's an integral function to many aspects of design.
  4. I work in the printing field. Reason 1) My clients frequently give us their own artwork. It is OFTEN terrible - a copy of a copy of... etc Pass the artwork over with image trace and poof - the image looks (mostly) nice again. Reason 2) Our products include items made using a Vinyl Cutter / Laser Cutter. Everything produced from these must be vector. (Laser engraving can also be done via raster, but not laser cutting) Anything produced for a customer by raster and later needed in vector format is easily handled with image trace. Basically, there is a lot of raster stuff out there. If you need it vector, image trace is the multi-use tool to get the job done, or at least partially done.
  5. Another +1 to image trace request here. I am glad to see the Developers say they are working on it; sad to see they don't say when they expect it will be ready. A month ago I was ready to buy the Affinity software - it looks amazing by the way! Then I found out it doesn't offer image trace. I use this feature CONSTANTLY. At least 50% of all of my projects need some kind of image tracing. It was a deal breaker and I haven't picked up any of the Affinity software still because of this. I really really want to but if it doesn't image trace, I will just wind up going back to my current apps to do image tracing, which defeats the purpose of doing a migration to the Affinity software.
