  1. Hi, after reviewing James Ritson's presentation on document resizing, his emphasis is on sizing for printing using dpi (dots per inch for printing ). I think this panel should indicate that it is for printing purposes only. For screens and web pages perhaps we should just use the export panel. I do not agree with your wording "The developers know that PPI is the correct term, but they deliberately chose to use DPI rather than educate less well informed users." We cannot assume that PPI and DPI are the same. The printing world uses DPI while screen devices use PPI.
  2. Hi, in the resize document panel in Affinity Photo (of which I enclose a screen shot ) Should the DPI selection not read PPI or left clear. In the description it also relates to DPI. ..... PPI for screens .... DPI for print as I understand. Cheers
  3. Thank you Ash I forwarded this offer to my photography group. As we are being advised to stay home then we do not need to spend money on gasoline and therefore your amazing offer is very welcome at this troubling time Cheers Colin
  4. Hi back, With all due respect and by the way thank you both. To firstdefence, I read that article also, but it does not answer my question. ....Which is ... " Will Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher take advantage of the extra cores or the extra GHz.". to Dazzler. I respect your time doing the research on your computer, but still this has not really answered my question. In fairness the answer to my question should come from one of those who created the apps. cheers
  5. Hi there, I am not a technical person when it comes to purchasing a new computer, so a little help please. I am looking to purchase a new MacBook Pro 15 inch. My choices are for: one: a 2.6GHz 6-core Processor with Turbo Boost of 4.5 GHz ..... or two: a 2.3GHz 8-core Processor with Turbo Boost of 4.8GHz. From the specs outlined above one has more GHz while the other has more Cores. Question then: Will Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher take advantage of the extra cores or the extra GHz. Affinity, thank you for your amazing products, Adobe is long gone :)
  6. Hi there, Not only is developing an image very slow, I also noticed that with Metal Compute the clipping indicators do not work. When I adjust an image by opening up the exposure the image starts to become transparent. and the colour overlays are not present. After unchecking Metal compute all is ok. BTW I am now at 15 seconds on opening a RAW file from an Nikon D750 on this laptop and my Mac Desktop. After developing and committing to the Pixel Persona it is taking about the same as opening a file ... 15 seconds !!!!! Macbook Air. 13in mid 2012 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5 Intel HD graphics 4000 1536 MB
  7. I have to add my findings also, I have noticed since updating to 1.7 that developing a raw file from a Nikon D750 is taking twice as long on my iMac mid 2011, 3.4 GHz i7 with 16gb of DDR3 than the previous version. After making a few alterations with the develop sliders in the Develop Persona and committing the change, its almost like the process is hanging up ready to fail prior to the file opening up in the Photo Persona. On another note. Congratulations on the Tutorials in Photo, Designer and Publisher ( I have preordered Publisher ) The tutorials are now easier to locate from the help menu, thank you great job on presentations

  9. Hi there, I am completely shocked that after waiting all this time for Publisher after the initial announcement of Affinity Publisher that it is only good for physical books. The inability of Publisher not able to create links especial in a contents page is just plain nuts. I am not a huge fan of ebooks but Pdf's with working links to pages or to outside internet pages is really important. I am sorry guys you missed the boat in my opinion. I can create Pdf's with workable links in Apples "Keynote" ........... I have purchased Designer, Photo, and the two books that accompany those apps. I can not consciously spend any amount for this product when I can get the same results with "Keynote" with respect Colin
  10. Hi there, Not sure if this reqest falls under "Export slices previews with actual export data" ....I would like to suggest if possible the ability to add links to elements within a project destined for the web. The chance to do this would be amazing when exporting out a project as SVG. This would be a great time saver.
  11. Hi again, Well that was a 1st for me, recording a screen. May be a little long but did capture what you need, I hope red3.mov
  12. Hi there, An update. the same is happening in Affinity Photo. Identical situation. Sending the Apple crash report to you. Is this an High Sierra issue ????? colin.pdf
  13. Morning, hi MEB, I got up this morning and have received your instructions. I cleared the user data and then created a new file, added a series of preset shapes all the same default colour. Then I started changing the colours of the shapes and then that is when Designer crashed. So yes it happens with a new file. I should add that an automatic Apple crash report was sent to them. I have managed to copy that info into a pdf which I enclose. thank you for the speedy answer. red.pdf
