  1. The amount of noise heavily impacts the size of the png (maybe also other file formats, i don't know. I usually use png).

    The resolution isn't always the biggest factor of the file size. A 10000x10000 picture of just one color is only a little over 310kb when exported as PNG. Add 5% of monogramatic gausian noise and it's almost 67MB. Non monogramatic makes it 127MB. All same resolution. just different pixels in it.

  2. I know.. but Affinity does support HDR monitors..

    If you enable the 32Bit preview panel you can just tag the EDR (Mac) or HDR (Windows) checkbox to enable HDR view and make use of the HDR capabilities of your display.

    EDIT: Sidenote.. On windows you have to enable HDR in your windows settings first before the checkbox becomes available. Kind of annoying but that's just how it works.. Windows itself looks off in HDR mode so it's not something you want to have turned on constantly.

  3. You literally create a curve. Take the pentool, draw the path you want your text to appear on. (don't worry about it too much, you can change it later. 

    Take the Artistic Text tool and hover above your curve. The cursor should then change from the regular A to a T with a line below it to indicate that it's gonna be text on a a curve.. Click, and start typing. there are green and red arrows that you can drag to indicate where your text should start and end.


    EDIT: ah, @firstdefencebeat me to it...

  4. My apologies.. I wondered why I didn't get any replies yet but I found that for absolutely no good reason the email notifications ended up in my spam.

    So anyway, yes I want to just mindlessly overwrite and I don't care about the compression settings as most of it is PNG anyway and if I do need to change stuff then I can always just use export but that's more work.

    I don't have an example here at the moment but I'll see if I can find one. One little thing I thought of, the pics are in a folder that's being synchronized with syncthing. I just figure that maybe some pics are in use at the moment that I open them and that's why they can't be overwritten.. So I'll turn that off next time and see if anything's different. although I'd expect some Read-Only message or something if that were the case.

    There’s an option when you post something to add a “Spoiler” to the post – it’s the eye icon in the ‘toolbar’.
    You might like to look at using that to post images in the forum which might not be suitable for everyone.
    As with this:

      Reveal hidden contents



    Oh that's a good one. I didn't even look at that tbh. I just followed the guidelines without thinking about it :)

    @Patrick Connor Is that something to consider? Because I totally understand not feeling comfortable with external links.

    Wo ist das Bild? Links die auf externe Webseiten führen werden in meinem Browser nicht angezeigt, zumal in unsicheren Zeiten man nicht auf Webseten geht denen man absolut nicht vertraut.

    Where is the picture? Links that lead to external websites are not displayed in my browser, especially since in uncertain times you do not go to websites that you absolutely do not trust.

    I understand. This is however how it's advised to post an image if in any way it could be controversial. It's in the sticky post about "sharing guidelines".  

    It might fall under the 'horror' category I think so it seemed appropriate to handle it as 'controversial'.

    But if it didn't ask you to restore, that usually means one of these things:

    • It didn't save a file.
    • It saved one, but you were working on a named file (not a new, unsaved one). In that case you don't get the prompt until you try to open that file again.

    The automatic prompt to restore is only when you were working on a new, unnamed file, or when you've configured the app to automatically reopen files you were working on when you start it.

    I'm extremely happy to say that you were wrong..

    unnamed file and it was saved there :)

    3) - the lack of adequate .asphoto support in other DAM applications including Bridge.


    Wait..... So let me get this straight..

    You are blaming Serif that other applications don't support the affinity file format?
    Just repeat that a few times in your head and maybe you'll start to understand how silly that is..
