  1. Many thanks. I just discovered that on the iPad and came back to confirm.
  2. Unless I am missing a setting, layer groups are all represented by a folder icon instead of the small thumbnail that v1 had. Is this intentional, or have I hopefully missed a setting to restore the thumbnail view for layer groups? It makes quickly identifying the group you are looking for much quicker.
  3. Yes, I did this previously although an iOS update broke the shortcut. Would have to review it to see what needs change to get it working again. It only allowed you to share a photo from the photo library to Affinity Photo, it wouldn't let you save back over the top of the original image.
  4. I use the free Paint app but it adds additional steps and time to the process as well as additional conversion points. I love Affinity Photo but surprised at the lack of some export options that plenty free tools support.
  5. Adding my voice to this. Was using the beta for some non critical work and really found this a chore. Hopefully fixed soon or presumably for the full release.
  6. I'm another looking for DDS support. The new MS Flight Simulator 2020 requires DDS textures so I need to stick to Photoshop to export my work for this sim.
  7. Any word from Affinity team on this? It seems like an important feature than needs to be added.
  8. Another vote for BMP export support. I’m working on textures for a game franchise where the SDK requires 24bit BMP files. I can do all the necessary editing of the PSD templates In Affinity Photo but need to export as PSD and switch to desktop to use an app like Photoshop or GIMP to be able to prepare the BMP files.
  9. Try editing the shortcut and changing the target application to another photo editor you have installed and see if that works. If so, then try changing back to Affinity Photo and test again. Did you ever have the beta of Affinity Photo installed?
  10. Yes, from the export page, select share at the bottom left and you have options to save to files and save image which saves to photos.
  11. No, because Affinity imports the image. You need to export the result back to Photos as a new image. You can of course then delete the original image.
  12. Apologies, you need to have it set up in the shortcuts app first. You can then use this method to add support for any editing app - see screens attached. It’s important to select the Accepts image option in the shortcut setup so the shortcut only shows up when viewing images. Literally takes less than a min to set up the shortcut but I’ve added a link to the shortcut here: https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/84bf6ea23f4e49eebe63385e13322935
  13. If you are using iPadOS then you have this simple solution: Find your image(s) in Apple Photos. Tap share sheet. Scroll to the bottom of the list of available actions and you will find ‘Open in Affinity Photo’. This will launch AP and import your selected image, ready for editing. @Teddylours This should provide exactly what you are looking for - use Photos to browse your images and Affinity to edit.
  14. Any tips on the batch processing feature? This is something I have yet to try in the beta.
