  1. Chris B Sorry - I wrote Mark instead of Chris B Chris,  Here is a list of capabilities which would make the 'Resize Document' work efficiently: • Percentage should be added as an option in the resize unit choice • A reset button is often needed • Results should be shown live - without need for tab (enter closes the window) • The pixel dimensions and print dimensions should be shown together (attached sample). All professional graphic designers (or their employees) spend a LOT of time resizing images for use in Publisher or InDesign, we need to administer the settings in one place as quickly as possible, to see that the application has calculated everything OK enter, then get on to the next picture. We would like the Affinity Resize tool to be as good as other apps, if possible better, but as it is, 'resize image 'in Affinity is inferior to all others.
  2. Mark, In order for 'Resize Document' to work efficiently and as quickly as possible, these improvements should be made: • Percentage should be added as an option in the resize unit choice • A reset button is often needed • Results should be shown live - without need for tab (enter closes the window) • The pixel dimensions and print dimensions should be shown together (attached sample). (Allowing for the future possibility of creating resize scripts) All professional graphic designers (or their employees) spend a LOT of time resizing images for use in Publisher or InDesign, we need to administer the settings in one place as quickly as possible, to see that the application has calculated everything OK enter, then get on to the next picture.

  3. Mark, MEB, Chris B, Nazario, and fellow 'Resize Document' contributors. I responded by submitting a new thread in the Affinity photo beta forum (as suggested by Mark) please continue this topic from there.
  4. The 'Resize Document' now works, the bug has been corrected, BUT... Its fundamental interface problem has not been addressed at all, nothing has been done, it still lacks ALL the improvements needed by all graphic designers, publishers (all the professionals who would use Affinity Photo as part of the set - Photo, Publisher and Designer, all those wishing to leave the Adobe set. Affinity team together with the programmers should use the advice of professional designers in order to understand the requirements needed for the 'Resize Document' interface for optimum workflow between the app set. Please try to understand why Photoshop 'resize image' (and other apps) got it right from the start, compare AP resize functionality for workflow and see why the Affinity 'method' is so inferior. We have been complaining about this fundamental interface issue for so long with so many posts going into so much detail on exactly what is required, is it possible that none of this has been read by the affinity team, it certainly has not been addressed seriously. I think that if the team understood the issue, it would have been dealt with long ago. Affinity team - Please read all the posts (in all categories) concerning 'Resize Document' and you should understand. The Affinity set cannot succeed without a comprehensive resize document/image in Affinity photo.
  5. Chris, I was answering Alfred - I'm sure Mark did his research on the resize forums. I am really looking forward to the 'upgrade', and perhaps saying a final goodbye to Adobe.
  6. Hi Mark, look forward to seeing the improvements, but on Mac. can you tell me if I am correct in assuming that all those concerned in the Affinity team have undertaken to improve the interface problem, also in Mac?
  7. Alfred, You have not followed the threads, please read the complete thread about the Affinity Photo resize issue, you will understand that the shortcomings of "resize document' effects all professional graphic designers who use the Affinity suite because we need to resize efficiently in 'Photo' in order to make the picture our required size cm, inch, etc. in Affinity Publisher and Designer.
  8. We are trying to invoke a serious discussion with the Affinity Photo TEAM, not with the Serif company, yet.
  9. Nobody from Affinity has ever related specifically to the resize INTERFACE problem, being such a major issue, (not just a fix) - we would expect that Affinity would have read in great detail and concern, and related to so many important posts in each different forum categories, none of which have been seriously contributed to by Affinity. We are waiting to hear that Affinity understood the issue by relating to it specifically in any detail. We are worried that you may fix the technical bug but not improve the interface to make it at all useable for graphic designers and publishers, I feel that Affinity is either still completely unaware of this huge issue, or just not willing to discuss it. If Affinity was to search and read all posts on the resize document unusability - they would have redesigned the resize interface long ago.
  10. The bug is not the main problem. So many people have complained that the resize interface is very bad, for such a long time and there is no feedback from Affinity. The interface is so bad that users who need to resize use other apps - this is the major issue. Has Affinity not read our posts - thousands of users have! Please try to get them to address the issue. thanks
  11. The bad resize interface is of such vital importance that i would have expected that Affinity, Serif would candid and respond with all-out vigor.
  12. Mark, we deserve response about the mac version, such major fundamental flaws in resize needs to be addressed, we have been patient, but affinity can’t continue ignoring our concerns, This has created too much frustration, and if it is not addressed Affinity will not be adopted by its largest market section potential.
  13. Mark, delighted to hear from you, that youare dealing with the resize problems, great.
  14. The Affinity team must be made to realize that the fundamental issue here is not the bug, even if it worked according to design, the whole concept of the resize function is bad, absolutely unusable for graphic professionals, publishers, advertising agencies. None of us can use it, but we need to, many times a day. This means that thousands of professionals cannot move over from Adobe to the Affinity trio. This message must find it's way to the decision-makers at Affinity, (somehow).
