  1. I made the switch a little over a year ago and haven’t looked back. I still have CS 5.5 on my machine that I can open most newer documents, although it does come up with a warning, so as long as you’re not dealing with complex gradients or similar complexities, it is fine. Just as an FYI, I also use Coreldraw occasionally and it is fine, but I prefer the Affinity products.
  2. Yes and no... The suite of products that Affinity offers can replace adobe’s products, but there is not yet translators for opening ID files. Most of the other files (.ai .psd, etc) can be opened and worked on, but there are some limitations as one would expect to experience trying to decode other software developers formats. That being said, if you’re not trying to share files with adobe users, you can easily move your workflow to Affinity and be just as productive and not be tied to a subscription model for the rest of your design career.
  3. I just switched from an 8400 to a 4000 and I'm having similar issues, not to mention they changed the export module from the simple export to a much more complicated version, IMO. I have found that printing through the standard print driver works fine, although I'll admit that it's not the same as the old style export module. I would love to know of a way to make it work.
  4. I had the same problem.....there are plenty of times when you bring in an image from a camera that defaults to 72dpi at 30" x 40", depending on your sensor size. Normally the first thing I do is change it to 300 dpi without any interpolation, i.e. unchecking the resample box. I believe where the confusion is coming in is that Affinity is able to do it, but it does not show you in real time, like photoshop does. When you're in affinity photo and you go to resize image and uncheck the box, just change the resolution to 300 (30 x 40@300 dpi) and hit resize and it will change the size of the image to 7.2" x 9.6" @ 300 dpi without any interpolation. The problem in Affinity Photo, is that it does not show the change until you hit resize, contrary to photoshop, that shows in real time how you're resizing the image and affecting the size and/or resolution. Will this be fixed in future updates? I'm hoping it will be. I hope this sheds a little light on the confusion.
  5. I was wondering for screen printing, if there any timeline for the halftone filters in Photo or Designer? How about printing host based separations from either program? Thank you.
  6. Does Affinity Photo recognize embedded fonts in a pdf file? I print a lot of wide format graphics and there are times when i need to layout files a certain way that the RIP will not let me and I need to do it in photoshop. When I open the file in AP, if there are fonts involved, it asks me to replace them if they are not available. In PS, it recognizes the embedded fonts and it rasterizes the file without a hitch. Is this a feature that is coming, or a bug? I understand that if I need to make changes to the text, I need the font, but most of the time I just need to convert the file to a raster file. Thanks for any help.
