  1. Hi Folks, It's been a while since I've been on here. Must mean I've been getting better with AP and AD... hmmm. Anyway.... Artboards, what are they all about? I understand the idea behind them, useful for showcasing projects etc but they do confuse me and I am after some help. I have created a number of social media ready type banners and profile photos etc that I plan to use across various social media platforms for a new upcoming venture. I have each of these created as separate files having used both AD and AP to create them. I then thought it would be good to have them printed so that I can pin them up in my office and mull them over. I thought what would be the best way to place all of these separate files onto a single sheet and print it to display it. Then I thought of artboards. Now first things first am I being daft and this isn't a good use of art boards in this situation? secondly. How the hell do I place all my separately created layer files onto a single artboard? is it possible or am I just getting the whole concept totally wrong and this isn't going to work? Any help would be greatly appreciated as alway. Thanks Mark
  2. I guessed as much but I have no idea how to actually do it. Any ideas?
  3. Firstly, Thanks folks, very useful answer (As per usual in this forum). So time for the second silly question then.... lets say I have achieved the look I was after by using the LUT and then doing some other tweaks via the develop/Tone Mapping persona etc... Is there a way to save ALL of these adjustments including the application of the LUT so that it will be possible to apply it more quickly to future photos or for example I have 200 plus photos I want to have the same effect, how can I re-create it across all the images without starting the process from scratch? Cheers Mark
  4. I am just going through their website now. Certainly looks like what I am trying to achieve. I have never used 3rd party applications/software with AP though so I am slightly unsure as to how to apply it at the moment... Need to brush up on using plug-ins etc. Many thanks for this though
  5. Hi Verysame, I assume that is just a LUT plug in? looks great. I will look at trying that shortly. Thanks again Mark
  6. Hi Folks, I'm after some help again.... So I really admire two very very good automotive photographers... Amy Shore and Laurent Nivalle. Both have a similar(ish) style and this extends to their editing process. I have read numerous interviews with both of them and they both mainly use Photoshop (Sorry to swear!) rather than lightroom and I am very keen to try and re-caprture their respective styles but by using Affinity Photo. I have attached two files which are photos from both Laurent and Amy respectively. Can anyone out there point me in the right direction to try and obtain the same style? Obviously I don't want to be copying their styles out right as that is not what photography is all about but I am very curious as to how to achieve this. Thanks folks, hope you can help. Regards Mark All credit for the attached two images go to Amy and Laurent.

  8. Ive just had the following reply from the Affinity guys on Twitter... From @AffinitybySerif - "No updates at the moment, when we have more information we'll let everyone know" I would read in to that... "Not anytime soon so stop asking" lol Pains me to do it but I have just downloaded Adobe Bridge
  9. I have noticed that things have gone very quiet on this DAM front? any update ???
  10. Hi folks, Sorry if this has already been requested, I couldn't find a thread showing that it had so hopefully I am not duplicating. Are there any plans to introduce a feature to Affinity Photo (Or even create a stand alone app) that would offer the same workflow management that Lightroom (Sorry I know it's a swear word) has? I would love to use Affinity Photo as my go to software for all my photo edit work but it would be handy if I could arrange and sort all of my shots from a shoot within Affinity Photo and not have to use a third party app to manage them such as the Macs native photos app etc. It would also be VERY handy to be able to apply edits across multiple photos at the same time. Cheers folks Mark
  11. Hi Toltec, Thats a good point, I didn't even notice the file size to be honest but I have just checked and yes the Van PSD file is actually 219mb in total! Not exactly sure why. I've found a smaller alternative now which I have attached, sorry. Cheers for pointing that out though Mark free_download_mini_van__by_rogeriomarcos-d7aaz4g.psd
  12. Hi Folks, I'm after some help again. I created a very simple and basic logo design in affinity designer and I now want to use a PSD mockup of a van I have and put my design over top of that to show it on the van. I have opened up the Mock up van and my design both in Affinity Photo but the next bit is where it all goes wrong. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the overlay right. I know I will need to use a mask but I really am not very clued up with using them. Can anyone help? Thanks again Mark Oh yeah... Ive attached my two files BCL Colour .psd GemGfx_Vehicle_Branding_Mockup.psd
  13. Hi Guys, Are there any plans to produce a photo management app... such as "cough" lightroom etc? Regards Mark
  14. Hi Folks, Do you mean something along these lines? Mark
