  1. Thanks Gabriel A most peculiar limitation (in terms of using images for multiple purposes) but glad to know I'm not missing something simple. ta d.
  2. I've tried file, export and the export persona. The document I'm starting with is 26679 x 2000 px (yes, long and thin) at 300.
  3. I'm used to exporting objects from CaptureOne at their target dpi - so if I export a file at 105mm wide at 720dpi I know it will read into an A6 portrait 720dpi file in Affinity Designer at full size (say). Exporting files from Affinity Photo though they seem to go out at 300dpi and need resized on import. Am I missing something - ie a way to set the dpi at output? Using the latet version of AP and AD on Mac 10.13.5
  4. Aha! Thank you. It doesn't seem to be listed so thanks for rescuing me. d.
  5. I can't find the video tutorial where James aligns and merges two photos of an abandoned milk float in a grotty old shed. I'm trying to do something similar and the approach there is more suitabe than HDR. Can anyone tell me what it's called? d.
  6. Excellent, thanks Gabe. That will keep me out of mischief for a bit!
  7. Thanks Gabe That's certainly a pragmatic way of sorting this image. Is there a way of doing the making the colour of something converge, effectively I suppose brushing in the hue without affecting saturation or lightness? d.
  8. I have a photo of two bands of ceramic tiles that are lit by mixed light so the colour shades from warm to cool across its width. I'd like to equalise the colour across the bands while preserving the texture and shading. I'm sure there's a terribly simple solution, but it's eluding me!
  9. Drag and drop of characters from Apple Colour moji doesn't seem to work although I can see that there might be a problem with non-black fonts.
  10. I haven't checked preferences for the simple reason it turns itself on and off seemingly at random. The trackpad works perfectly with all other applications all the time; it's just hit and miss with Affinity. So I think something inside Affinity is deciding whether it wants to cooperate with pinch/spread to zoom and canvas rotate.
  11. Well you could have knocked me down with a feather! I had no idea anybody was still using mice. Yes, it's an A1339 Trackpad. It works brilliantly for zooming and canvas rotation. Until it doesn't.
  12. It's a feature that usually works perfectly well in the Mac desktop apps; and then just stops working and you need to use Cmd+ and Cmd- which is a right PITA. I haven't worked out why it switches itself off.
  13. Ah, well, we don't have Designer 1.6.1 for Mac yet. I'll give it a day or two and if it doesn't turn up for Mac file a bug. But then it's Photo I'm having the problem with
  14. Thanks Chaps Well as files are always rendered before delivery I'll go for import as text; indeed that's what I have set. I think it may be a post-1.6 problem. I've edited another two and while it doesn't get itself into as much of a mess as before, in each case it loses the fill layer below the object on save and re-open. Perhaps one for the bugs forum?
  15. V_kyr Well, that's how I always do it and normally it works - Edit With Affinity Photo creating a 16-bit PSD, add the layers and save. Then any further non-destructive adjustments in Capture One are applied to a flattened version of what's in the PSD, but if I then Open With Affinity Photo I have my layers back with the file open in Affinity and can edit again,and when I go back to Capture One the non-destructive edits will be applied over. But always the PSD contains layers that remain editable in Affinity. Now I could imagine that I had inadvertently flattened the PSD inside AP, but why does the file have a black background (ie edited) when viewed in and exported from Capture One; but is unedited in Affinity Photo? Alfred - thanks, good point - I do stick to photographic manipulations when exporting to PSD and do any text in Affinity Design. But a useful reminder
