  1. Hi, I could really use an Adobe Acrobat alternative. I imagine this would entail a tremendous effort on your part, but I feel like it is the last piece of the puzzle so I can ditch Adobe. In my case, I publish comic books/graphic novels, and need to assemble high resolution PDFs for digital distribution (iPad Pro, etc...) and print. My workflow isn't terribly complicated, but I do need a quick, visual way to add/remove/rearrange pages, while making sure that resolutions and colour spaces are uniform and preserved. My biggest issue is that many alternatives tend to compress my images down with no setting to avoid this (even acrobat pro is guilty of this to a degree). At this point, even a command line tool similar to imagemagick might do, but obviously a full acrobat alternative would be amazing, and I imagine that there are far more complex use cases out there for existing customers.
  2. No disrespect to this team, but I have never heard of them. if I had, I might have supported this, but it certainly does not look to be on the level of Affinity, and I would imagine that the existing user base of Affinity is easily 100x that of Akira
  3. @Patrick Connor - I understand, but look at the amount of replies here. Surely it is worth considering? No one is asking for a free ride - tell us how much.
  4. Time for my +1 and offer to crowdfund. I have bought Affinity on Windows, Mac and iOS, and I don't mind a seperate license and fee for each one, because it is worth it. However, Windows has become to big of a security hazard and simply is not reliable. I actually don't mind the UI etc... but I don't feel like I can trust it. I have never had that issue with Linux. I know Linux is scary with so many distros and a broad label, but one .deb and one .rpm would make a lot of people happy; hell, even just an Ubuntu release would make a huge difference. Come on Affinity - what is the number? Surely $500K, $1 million, whatever, would make it worth your while.

    .eps file error

    Hi everyone I am getting a weird issue with opening some .eps files that I got from depositphotos.com, and was wondering if anyone had some insights. Basically, they appear all blurry and at a tiny size, and off center on a solid white background. I am just not sure what to do with these. These do come bundled with JPGs, but ideally I would like to work with the source eps files. I've attached both here as zips. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

  6. Hi, I am not really much of an artist - I just use photo and affinity to manage art assets for graphic novels which I receive from my illustrators, so this question might sound kind of silly. Let's suppose I have an EPS file and I want to select only part of it - maybe cut out a rectangular section - and paste this into a new document? I did see examples for using masks, but it seemed like the entire object was still there. Sorry if this is not specific enough, just looking to get some newbie guidance here

    PDF Software

    I love your software (have affinity photo and designer on my mac, photo on my iPad and eagerly awaiting designer on it) and was wondering if any type of PDF solution is planned? Like an Affinity PDF which could serve as a replacement for acrobat.

    Photo - scaling of PNG/JPGs

    Great, thanks for the help, but I find that if I resize in another program, I can't even see the jaggies.
  9. I have had several issues with "jaggies" when scaling images down, particularly PNGs. if I save the file as a .afphoto first and then adjust it isn't too bad, but if I take a native PNG of say 5000x5000 and scale to 1500x1500, the results are very noticeable. Any ideas? Maybe I am missing something (which is entirely possible since I am so new to Affinity Photo; I've attached a low res copy of my logo which I was trying to scale)
  10. This might sound kind of silly, but it would be helpful if the save dialogue (where one actually browses to a save location) could be moved by dragging from the title bar or something similar. Thanks! -Rodolfo
