  1. No it wasn't. It was all started as curves. Or rather shapes that were then converted to curves. No text.
  2. I have never used the more settings, usually I just export SVG and the curves remain as curves. And the text gets converted if I had ticked that box (and there is text) However in this case it doesn't export as curves. So I tried again with more settings set as above and the same happens. (however as mentioned there is no text just curves anyway) I
  3. I haven't come across this issue before. I export as SVG. Then when I open the SVG it consists of images. Can anyone please help? Thanks Caf.afdesign Caf.svg
  4. This may just be a preview for approval before sending a master format. What you say makes perfect sense, however when I tried it sampling down to 1200px, the differences between bilinear and bicubic were there, but nowhere near as different as yours. That looks great, way better than mine when I try bicubic. But is the jpg 80 via Affinity or something else? BTW when you say "1.5px of unsharp", what is the factor set to? . I found that radius 1.4px and factor 0.48 seemed reasonable.
  5. I'll need to get permission of the owner, but I could watermark it and save as, which I presume would not lose quality (which seems to be the case, see attached) In the original the ladies' are very sharp. When resizing they seem to lose a lot more sharpness than the background, presumably;y because the bg is rectangular pieces of dark wood or whatever Aha, I am resizing during export, so will need to resize first obviously. I'm not sure how to sharpen. Obviously I can see the sharpen in the filters menu, but I see unsharp mask (?) , Clarity (just seems to make it lighter) and High Pass (makes it grey) I've had a go and uploaded me efforts to compare to original web image Not sure how to mask just to the ladies as it's all one layer. No, it's a professional. So attached are 1 original (watermarked) EDIT: looks like the upload to the forum has compressed it and colours are less vibrant. See original linked here 2 My first cropped and resized export as on site (80% jpeg) 3 My second cropped and resized export sharpened (80% jpeg)
  6. Thanks everyone, very useful info to know that I should rely on Affinity. What apps are recommended? The image doesn't have text, the artefacts are showing people's faces as its' an image of a group of performers. The artefacts show around faces: It is the header here https://musicasecreta.org EDIT: that one has now been sharpened a bit)
  7. I'm not sure this is inevitable, or something that can be fixed. I have a high res jpg supplied by a photographer that is 5553px x 1951 DPI 300. If I export at that size but 70% jpeg quality, everything looks fine. However if I export at the size it will be used for (a website header) 1380 x 485, then the quality is way reduced. I don't mean it is slightly not as sharp due to fewer pixels (because you'd expect that when compared to viewing the full size but smaller). What I mean it has jpeg compression artefacts. Is this inevitable? Is it because the jpeg artefacts are there, but more noticeable at smaller dimensions? Thanks to anyone who can help!
  8. See here, one shape selcted I can fill But here, hold shif to select the other and no fill
  9. If I selct a shape, then obviously I can choose to fill or stroke. But if I select sevral that I want to all have the same fill, then I no longer seem to have the option to fill all of them at once with the same colour. Does anyone know if there is a quick way to do this as opposed to selcting and filling them one by one? Thanks
  10. I am making a landscaping plan and have made a curve representing a pathway, kind of an S shaped curve. To make life easy I have scaled the plan so 1 cm represents 1 metre and this woprks really well for rectangles etc to fine the sq m, but this is trickier for curves. So that I can give the paving contractors a good idea of the area they need to quote for, I'd like to be able to work that out from my plan. Does anyone know of a way to do this?
  11. Now I'm confused why the same images were (presumably) linked as opposed to embedded but i have no way to know.😟
  12. Copy and paste. I open them in Affinity photo, crop then copy and paste into Publisher. Nothing tells me whether I'm embedding or linking and as above nor does the resources manager tell me. In fact it's a bit annoying because the images it does list have the wrong (old) names
