  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Any word from Affinity team on this? It seems like an important feature than needs to be added.
  4. 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.
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. I would like to see the option of switching betweybthe last two used tools. I was hoping this is how it work by default because I may be erasing some content then wish to quickly use the undo brush to brush back in some of what I have deleted then continue erasing and switching back and forth between both tools as I refine what I am doing. Using the last two tools used also allows us to switch this in the fly by selecting two different tools from the side tray then using the double tap to switch between then as necessary.
  11. Full size at this time unfortunately but it may be worth requesting this from Apple as a feature request for their RAW support - https://www.apple.com/feedback/ipad.html
  12. Would love to see this as well - either as a full editor or a subset of the tools such as Inpainting etc. much like the Mac version has.
  13. Hi, it seems this is still an issue with RAW files. I realise it probably isn’t a priority issue but will it still be addressed at some point?
  14. Are there any plans for Batch Processing or similar file management for the iPad? I just think if we want to work on a number of images and then move them on, we need some kind of batch processing e.g. to select a few images and export them with a preset such as file dimensions, watermark etc.
  15. Are there any plans for Photos Extension on iPad? Would make a huge difference to how we can work with images.
  16. Another vote for this. The ability to use AP as an extension for iPad Photos would make up for some of the deficiencies in file management in AP.
  17. Yes, I’ve seen this video. It’s a good technique but you are limited to how many images you can capture before trails will start to appear once stacked. You are also more or less forced to use a higher ISO to start with introducing extra noise that you are trying to defeat in the first place. It’s all a balancing act I guess but star alignment would be a great addition imho.
  18. There are some stacking options in AP but I would love to see star stacking for astrophotography that would automate star alignment. Is this something that could be implemented?
  19. I was watching the excellent Tone Mapping Portraits tutorial by @James Ritson and was curious how to achieve the invert layer on the iPad when applying the unsharp mask and high pass filters so you can paint in the effect only on the eye region. Does anyone know how this is done? Alternatively a version of the tutorial for the iPad would be a great comparison video.
  20. Does anyone wish to see this improved or is it something the Affinity team can address?
  21. I've been playing with the Motion Blur Filter to blur clouds in the sky similar to a very long exposure. The range of motion does seem quite limited though and I would love to see this increased so we can add more perceived motion when blurring. Same would apply to the desktop version as well.
  22. You might want to upload that to the dropbox account with the camera details as per the original request.
  23. Hi MEB. I need to apologise because I thought there was a tolerance slider on the Smart Selection Tool in Photo and there isn't. I thought there was a disparity between the two apps - got to love my attention to detail! Thanks, Andy.
