  1. I just saw the news that Getty Images is acquiring Unsplash. Is this a good thing or a bad thing for Affinity? Does anyone know what impact this may have with Unsplash integration in Affinity apps?
  2. This did the trick! Thanks for taking the time to create these in an older version of AP sans bug. I had created the same macro in 1.8.1 and it didn't work for me. I still have to use Automator to resize to the longest side correctly before running your DPI macro. I hope this regression gets worked out in the next bugfix.
  3. Thanks for the offer. I already have an Automator service attached to a folder action for easy drag and drop. My goal is to eliminate that step in a single batch job with Affinity Photo.
  4. It's 2018 MacBook Pro. Here is my OS information: ProductName: Mac OS X ProductVersion: 10.15.3 BuildVersion: 19D76
  5. At least this lets me know I'm not crazy and that this is an awesome group to be a part of. Thank you for helping me work through this!
  6. Sorry for the strangely worded Post Title that appears more as a search term than a topic. I hope to find a solution to my recurring simple task that has become quite difficult even after reading John Rostron's posts about resizing images. Here is the task: Starting with a folder of 240 DPI images (some landscape and some portrait), I need to resize all of them to 2000px on the longest side and 72 DPI. When I perform the task manually on a single image, it works fine. When I run it through a batch job using a macro to perform the same task, a task I successfully worked through manually to record said macro, all portrait images are stretched to landscape. In a pinch, I had to use Photoshop to do this job recently. However, after talking my team into switching to Affinity to move away from CC, that option will go away at the end of the month. Please help. I don't want to do these by hand when I *know* there has to be an answer.
  7. This may be an opportunity for me to play with LaTeX. I've always thought about having a go at technical writing. Of course, I know what apps I would use for photos and illustrations. If only i had a page layout app from Affinity…
  8. Beautifully rendered. Thanks for sharing!
  9. I chose Affinity Designer to learn how to render a real world object using a bottle of syrup. The lines were pretty easy to work with and with Designer's help, the project was easy to finish. A .png comparing the photo with the render is attached to this message. The project file exceeded the size limit by a bit, so you can grab it at this link for now. I hope it helps someone else learn how great Designer can be for new users.
  10. My name is Eric and I do a fair amount of design work as a communications specialist. I'm excited to add Affinity Photo and Designer to my MacBook Air and look forward to additions to the Affinity suite. Thank you for an amazing set of tools! I look forward to learning and sharing more in these forums.
