  1. tiff file are about 180mb while .afphoto are a whopping 960mb for the same picture. sure .afphoto keep layers while tiff doesn’t. it really goes down to how much work you do on it and if you want to save everything, or if you’re pretty good to redo the work with close to same results saved as tiff.
  2. you can create a preset for exporting, like 8bit / bicubic. i did saved this preset but it doesn't stick there like i never created one before. and for the file name, let say the initial name of the file was 345_678 and i rename that file on export for _345678, it doesn't seem to save it that way and revert it to original file name 345_678, maybe it rely on the file data and not the name you attribute during export? maybe it's a bug i don't know.
  3. i know at the end it's the same, just weird. also even if i create an export preset, it doesn't save it like i never created one last night. and if i change the name of the file on export... when uploading online it reverse to original file name =/
  4. thanks for the answer guys. it just didn't make sense to me to save / export another tiff file, then delete the one i'm working on.
  5. I'm trying AP2 now, of course there's difference from V1 but, after doing some work, cmd-s used to save within that tiff file im working on, now in V2 it's saving as .afphoto file or exporting a new file. what's going on, why can't i just save that tiff file with that i got, merged everything down so only background is left, even if i rasterize. thanks
  6. cmd Z to undo on mac, ctrl Z on Win? you can also check your history panel and go back up to undo correction.
  7. Yep, best way to get the software, don’t get it from the app store.
  8. Nope, AP isn’t Ps and won’t return work to Lr. When you say other software returned to Lr when you quit, they’re used as plugin in Ps, no such thing with AP. Lr create its own catalog, only other software I know that also have catalog is Capture One. Otherwise you create your own catalog and save your work there, or move your end work where you need it to be, for you import it to your Lr catalog manually.
  9. Catalina 10.15.7 have both from your store and apple store, but using the one from your store now as it seem to start and load faster. I did reboot AP and the crop work fine, let see "if" I can reproduce it, hopefully not but bugs can always be fixed right?
  10. all of them, I tried them all.... rotate, straighten. if you click on straighten and try to cancel, it does cancel but when using crop tool, back to same issue.
  11. yep and no it wasn't set to none, how I solved it? close AP and restart it then the crop tool was working. Then open a new file, did some processing and again crop tool not working, close AP and restart again, after 3 pictures done the issue did not appear again.
  12. not sure if it had brought up before, but i'm having issue with the crop tool, not usable. it doesn't show any line, even pressing "o" to change cycle orientation, grid just don't show up. am I missing something? using AP 1.9.3 Mac. check screenshot
  13. thanks for the reply, indeed I did, I tried many changes like bilinear, bicubic, use format document to RGB8bit, dropping quality, still can't add preset and staying greyed out.
  14. I just switch AP from app store to serif store, sadly nothing got saved and the software just overwrite/reset everything to scratch. what happened to export preset? I've spent almost an hour and can't figure out what am I doing wrong, it just greyed out and can't save any. see screenshot, is this a bug from last update?
  15. Well... if you click replace, settings are not transferred, you need to setup your plugins again and all other perks, that’s a bummer =/
  16. Got the answer... you get 2 choices during install, replace or keep both.
  17. If you have Affinity Photo from the apple store, switching to Sherif website, you have to delete AP first before installing the one from Sherif?
  18. hmmmm.... problem solved. those are actually part of Dfine. weird that I've never seen those before.
  19. Hi folks, was wondering if other user have those plugin in the preference/plugin of AP. I have no clue what those are (the top 7, above color efex) and where they from but noticed as I was to removed nik pre-sharpening as I never use this one. were they implemented with the latest update 1.8 of AP?
  20. Top right you’ll see “zoom” in the Nik window, you can adjust from there, you can also increase the size of your window close or same size as AP on your screen.
  21. just out of curiosity as I did not updated yet, seen many complaining with latest release issues on Windows but... how does it run on Mac High Sierra? anyone had crashes or issues?
