    In which case the link above should be all you need.

    That depends on what platform you're on and where you bought the programs - Mac or Windows, and if it's the latter did you buy them from the Affinity Store or the Microsoft store? The Affinity store is here, you'll probably need your username and password.
  3. Assuming you're using Win 10, there's a Search tab at the top of the window - just select your phone from the input list on the left and search for .jpg. I don't know what apps you're thinking of, but there's a reasonable chance that the location's one of the options.
  4. You don't need to install any new software - just use Windows Explorer. The photos should be in a folder called DCIM.
  5. Unfortunately it's not that simple - there are a number of permission / ownership issues to be resolved as well. Fortunately, someone's worked out a quick fix.
  6. You may need to tell the 'phone what you want to do - check the notifications at the top of your screen.
  7. The first step creates an image layer - it's converted to a pixel layer at step 5. As you say, it's easier to simply rasterise it.
  8. Agreed - my definition of a "power user" would include knowing what it was called (along with all possible synonyms)
  9. I think a lot depends on what you were doing with the Plus software and how much you understood. If, like me, you started with the "fix everything" buttons and didn't do much more than a bit of cropping, AP is a whole new ball game! It's not hard though - you just have a lot of options. If you started as a power user then you already understand what you want to do, so it's just a case of looking it up if it's not already obvious. A big difference is the replacement of paper manuals with video tutorials - It suits my "monkey see, monkey do" approach but it's not everyone's idea of a good thing.
  10. But in another post you said you bought the app from the Affinity Store - that's only applicable to Windows.
  11. So far as I know there's no built in Screenshot feature in PS, so it's whatever you did before.
  12. The keyword here is "securely" - reformatting on its own doesn't delete the data, so you'll need to overwrite it. Google "secure format" to find suitable software.
  13. I'm not a Mac user, but what did you see that indicated that Affinity was uploading anything? Affinity opens files ( a non-destructive action) but it doesn't upload anything, nor is anything uploaded to it.
  14. I've a feeling we're ignoring the elephant in the room - why do you need to crop in AP and then go back to PS?
  15. Much as I hated it as a management style, I'd like to see a *JFDI option in Affinity products - if I want to close or exit something I'd like it to happen without being asked if that's really what I wanted to do. It's mainly a concern when e.g. files have been exported and AP treats that as a change and insists on confirmation that I don't want to save. * In case you've never been subjected to it, JFDI = Don't question me, Just eFfing Do It.
