  1. Not sure I ever replied to this but it worked. Thanks a lot.
  2. I'm getting a large block of space when I export a logo. It was originally created in illustrator. When I open it in Affinity Photo it looks fine (no added space above) When I set the Transparent background choice it looks fine. But when I export as a png or jpg I get this large space above the object. I'm using the latest version of APhoto 1.4.1 Here is what it looks like http://www.screencast.com/t/hJhcRi427s Thanks for any clues as to why this is happening. Ive attached the original file as well Martial Arts Basics Logo On Light.ai
  3. Does anyone know if this plugin will work with Affinity Photo? http://www.psdcovers.com It's a plugin for Photoshop
  4. How in the world would I locate the artifact in Affinity Photo?
  5. you made my day. I didn't know about that Transparency selection in the menu...
  6. I need a logo to upload to a membership site. I have the file in many formats but can't seem to get the background removed. Ive selected both EPS and PNG files to test but have no luck. When I export they still have the white background. Even when I select Export > Lanczos 3 > Selection without the background Im still getting the white. Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thanks
  7. Re: Affinity Photo Im trying to create a circle with a check mark going through it. My thought was to use a circle and a Zapf Dingbat font that creates a check mark. But when I choose that font all I get is a black square. Does Zapf Dingbats work? Am I doing something wrong? Shows in my Font Book it's active. Is there a better way to go about this? Thanks
  8. I want to bring a simple handout to life. This is for an opt in page Ive created on my website. Basically I have a smaller screen shot (png) file of my handout. What I want is to make it more appealing to the viewer. What I was thinking was to rotate say 30 degrees to the left, angle the perspective, tilt a bottom right corner, then add some shadow effects. Can someone outline how I would go about this? I will do this over and over again for many of my handouts. In the past Ive relied on other tools but they are extremely limited to what they can do. Any help is appreciated. Ive attached a sample handout so you can see what I mean. Thanks Ed
  9. i do a lot of internet marketing. I want to have a picture of a handout on the page where someone gives me their name and email. I want the picture to be angled and possibly a lifted corner and shadow effects. Any tutorial on some ways to make a "product" or "handout" look nice with perspective would be great. I could create these all day long for not only myself but others who also struggle with getting the "look" just right. Thanks PS I attached a sample doc if you need an example of what Im talking about.

  11. I received a very large file 6453 x 4618 px jpg file from a contractor on fiverr.com. Then she went on vacation. So Im unable to launch a website until I get this photo placed... In Affinity Photo I tried to use the Resize Document feature but it get real pixelated when I reduce it down. And when I did reduce it down I tried to import it and Wordpress refuses to import and I get a HTTP error. Never seen this before. What is the best way to reduce the size and any idea what that error is from Wordpress? Thanks for any support on this.
  12. More beginner on editing basics would be really appreciated. Love your software.
