  1. Hi there Just wondering if there is a way of changing the default measurement from pixels to centimetres when re-sizing pictures please? It's not a big inconvenience I will admit, but when I'm resizing a whole batch of pictures it would save me time if I could just resize them and see the new size in centimetres immediately. I've gone into the Preferences panel but I can't see anything that would allow me to do that. Many thanks everyone.
  2. Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to send me your video. I'll give it a go, but I was looking for a way to just zero in on specific faces which have too much light. is there a way to do that using your method? Thanks again
  3. Hello everyone and Merry Christmas! I'm a beginner on Affinity Photo and need some really simple steps to correct the colours in this photo please. The guys at the top are bathed in too much light and the women at the bottom are slightly dark. I can live with the slight dark, but really want to correct the over-exposure in the top row. Thank you so much for your help
  4. Hi there everyone, thank you for your help. I used to do something in Photoshop that I would like to replicate in Affinity. In Photoshop, I was able to extend the canvas size by typing in the new dimensions in the 'Change Canvas Size' dialogue box. I used this when I wanted more space in the picture to add text to it (as in the image below) but the original picture didn't allow it. In Photoshop there's a 'Change canvas size' function that allows you to dictate the width and height you want (second photo). Then you select which edge you want to extend,whether top, bottom or either side and use the eyedropper tool to select what color you want to fill the extended canvas, and then use the brush tool at about 30% to tone it down if necessary. In Affinity Photo you can extend the canvas quite easily, but how do I tone down the color? And how do I blur the 'join' line so that you don't see a definite demarcation between where the original picture ends and the extension begins? Sorry if I'm not making myself clear..I'm such a newbie I don't know all the right terms. Thanks so much!
  5. hello there, how do I get the old, much cuter and sassier cat tool please? The new cat tool is verrry boring. cat.pdf
  6. Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to help a newbie. My question is : how do I move on after finishing a task/adjustment? I've selected and brightened a portion of a picture and I've saved it but when I go back to the picture to make another selection and adjustment, Affinity makes those changes to the original section I worked on. I can't get it to recognize the new selection. Is there something I need to do to 'quit' the old selection and move on to the new one? Thank you!
  7. Hello everyone, I'm new to Affinity publisher and would really appreciate it if someone could link me to some good, step by step tutorials please? I've been onto YouTube but I end up selecting random videos so there isn't any real continuity and flow to the tutorials. Thank you very much 😊
  8. Hi Callum, I'm Janice and I have the same question as Cmajor7. I tried clicking on the links in your reply but they brought me to a dead link in vimeo. Would you mind please posting them again or giving me the title of the video so I can search the vimeo site? Thanks so much
  9. Hello, is it possible to edit an Affinity Publisher file in InDesign? Can I export the Publisher file into InDesign - and then edit that file in InDesign - using the export menu or do I have to use a third-party application? Thank you
  10. Hello everyone If I make changes to a picture in Affinity Photo and then export it as a .jpg or .png to my computer, does that exported copy retain all the changes made or do I have to actually save the modified picture as an Affinity file? Thank you
  11. Hi there, I recently created a new color and saved it as a Global Color so that I can use it for future documents. how do I find the colors I've saved and use them in a new document? Have I even saved it correctly? Should it be saved as a Global color, as registration color or something else please? Thanks very much
  12. Thank you...I've figured out that I can export a jpeg directly to my computer so that's what I do now.
  13. How do I get rid of it though? I did a hard reset of the program and now that doesn't happen anymore, but how do I get rid of it if it happens again please?
  14. Gosh I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but now when I create a new document it appears with these gray-ish pixel shapes? The pages just used to open completely clear. Thanks so much all
  15. Hi there, REAL rookie here. Sorry for my basic questions. I've been watching a lot of the tutorial videos and I've noticed that whenever the teacher creates a new document he gets a dialogue box on the screen (see pic 1). I don't get the same dialogue window. Picture 2 shows what appears on my screen. Have I done something wrong that prevents that little box from appearing and how do I get it back or do I even need it? Thank you all. Also why is it I don't automatically my pages loaded into a sidebar (Pic 3)? Please help..
