    Could I please add that pixel to vector images would be amazing. I just bought affinity designer as an alternative to Adobe illustrator as their prices are ridiculous and didn't realise that affinity couldn't do this so am pretty disappointed right now. As a photographer and designer this would be my main use for this software. Please add ASAP :D

    Hi Retep,
    Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
    No, Affinity Photo/Designer doesn't have an auto-tracing feature/functionality not is able to convert a pixel selection into a vector shape at the moment.
    You will have to use a third party software for that like Image Vectorizer, Vector Magic, or Super Vectorizer 2. Inkscape (open-source) also includes tracing functionality.

    Retep reacted to R C-R in Affinity windows files on a mac   
    The Windows Designer beta uses the new 1.5 file format, which is incompatible with the 1.4.x & earlier Mac retail versions. However, the Mac betas also use the 1.5 format so you can open the Windows files with them. Click on the top level Affinity | Forum link at the top of this page to see all the forums, including the 3 devoted to the betas. The first post in each of them has important info about the betas & links to download them.

    Thank you - that is what I have been doing. Thought I just wasn't finding the auto trace - looking forward to that new tool.  So far love this app.
    Thanks again

    What would be the fastest to trace and outing of an existing image such as the sketch I have included?
