  1. The application is developed using Xojo which is a rather confidential language. I however posted it on Github (I never did with my applications so sorry of I did not do it the proper way !). If can be found here https://github.com/perezf/CleanClipboardforFiJi The application simply scans the clipboard. If there is an image, it pastes the content in a picture object and copy it again into the clipboard. This kind of "cleans" the wrong parameters (size = 0) that Affinity is attaching to the image. Best, Franck
  2. Hi, I created a turn-around for this problem (for Mac). I have created a small application that you can start and let it run in the background when you need to copy from ImageJ/FiJi. It will "clean-up" the clipboard and make it OK for Affinity pasting. I have posted here : https://www.dropbox.com/s/ge4v3zoo06m0yzs/Clean FiJi Copy.app.cpgz?dl=0 and attached it to this post. Because it is not a signed application, the first time you use it you will need to open it using Right-Click (or Ctrl-Click) > Open otherwise Gatekeeper will block it. Tis application only access your clipboard. All the best, Franck Clean FiJi Copy.zip
  3. Hi there, any progress on this ? To replace Photoshop by Affinity, this should work. If we copy from Fiji (the format of the image is PNG in the clipboard) than the "The contents of the clipboard have no physical size" error prevent normal pasting (while it works in Photoshop, keynote, word, etc...) Thanks, Franck
  4. Hello, as much as I would like to switch to Affinity series, I need to exchange files with colleagues using Photoshop. The export has really improved (in particular the "Final Cut Pro" set-up) but Text layers are still exported as a pixel layers and not as vectorial layers (the import of psd files respect vectorial text). Thus, the text is not anymore editable which is a strong limit. Any plan to improve this is next version ? thanks, Franck
  5. I agree. This is a much needed function. Waiting for the implementation of this basic function, I followed this methods and it works very well. Quite indirect but efficient. Affinity Designer Tutorial - How to Create Your Own Custom Stroke Brush https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zd_OZ-7vm8k
  6. Hi, As much as I love Affinity's series of app (Designer, Photo), I need to do some work in Photoshop. However, while the import works very well, the export generate a file which not well read by Photoshop CS4 (lot of error messages like "this file contains unrecognised data", or "this file uses an unrecognised fusion mode"), the organisation by folders is not conserved, a white layer is produced instead, and the text is not anymore vectorial. Strangely, Affinity Designer cannot open the psd files that it itself generated ("Failed to open PSD file. The file could not be parsed."). Did anybody noticed the same problem ? Is it something that is on the list to get improved in the near future ? Otherwise, it makes it impossible to work collaboratively with other people who did not switch (yet) to Affinity's series. thanks, best, Franck
  7. I think the "whole document" crop tool is a must. Since it exist in the "File - Document Set up" it is somehow a matter of adding a GUI to this function. thanks in advace, keep up the good work, ​Franck
  8. Yes. I just tried and that would do. Thanks. It may even be a better solution as I see the 3 settings at the same time. The only thing is to make sure to stay linear and to start at 0 and finish at 255. But this is easy to control. I am not sure I understand why the pixel intensity distribution histogram is different between Photoshop and Affinity Designer (see attached screen shot. Same picture analyzed). Is it because you are considering 16 bits levels ? is it possible to show as 8 bits (it is an 8-bit image that I am processing). These histograms are indeed useful to quickly detect min and max intensity of an image thanks for your help and for this already impressive software, Franck
  9. It would be great. I am a scientist, treating biological images and preparing figures for publication and I am looking for replacement software for Illustrator and Photoshop as I do not want (and I cannot) rent software and take the risk not to be able to open my files if I do not get a grant. If Affinity Designer keep progressing, it looks like ot may be the best choice for my field. But we need to be able to treat the channels. (the other tool I'll be missing is the possibility to open the frames of a quicktime movie and treat them but I think it is beyond the goal of Affinity Designer).
  10. Thanks. It is already very useful. It could be more intuitive though (may be with a contextual menu or at least that the "Copy" entry in the menu indicates "Copy Adjustment Layer")
  11. I am more a user of Photoshop, so this is the interface that PS is providing to tune the channels of a RGB picture (see attached screenshot - sorry french interface...)
  12. Hi, it would be great to be able to copy modification parameters of an adjustment layer (like levels or exposure values) and apply them to another layer. thanks, Franck
  13. Hi, is is plan to add the possibility to modify levels not only for all the channels (RGB image) but also treating each channel independently (ala Photoshop) ? thanks, Franck
  14. Thanks for the answer. I know one can design an arrow by himself but when you have a lot of them to draw... Happy to see that it is on the road map. thanks for the good work., Franck
  15. And is there anyway to add an arrow to one end ? thanks.
