  1. Thanks Daz; when you say “diskmakers” what exactly do you mean? A vinyl factory or the record label?
  2. Hello OB, truth; already knew and thank you for your answer. But these presets are just simple squares of the right size. I'm looking for something more complete and ready to use so I don't have to design everything from scratch, as I don't have much time. There are definitely these templates made and ready to use, but I can't find them.
  3. Dear friends, I need to teach some young students how to design record covers and therefore I need templates for Affinity programs (which are the same for the three programs I assume), to make 7" and 12" vinyl covers/sleeves with spines and borders for being trimmed, etc; and for CD covers. Real files as for real graphic production, to teach the process correctly. If possible also several formats of vinyl covers like Single Jacket, 2-Disc Jacket and Gatefold Jacket. And the template for the round paper label that sticks on both sides of the vinyl record. The same for the CD; covers with spines and page inserts if possible. What I'm looking for are not mockups, but Affinity files that allow young people to have professional empty files to add images and typography, etc. Learn to make record covers in real files ready to go to offset. Are there such files in the Affinity resources? If not in our Serif resources, where can I find them? I have the three Affinity programs but I plan to use Publisher and Designer the most for these teaching projects. Thank you very much for your help. Best regards.
  4. Cannot test with my Mac because my printer isn´t yet here... soon .-)
  5. Thanks for the tip Thomaso ,-) It remains to be seen if I lose some quality when turn my 300dpi TIFF into PDF? Will you know the answer? Thanks.
  6. Thanks ronnyb. I'm going to test this possibility, although I'm looking for a way to, from an image, configure the print in the tile form; that was enough .-)
  7. Hi is there any quick and easy way to print a large image, (Tiff/300dpi/50 megapixels) in grid form of multiple smaller pages (example A4 or A3/A3+) to then assemble the printed trimed sheets and get a large image in paper with for example nine A3 sheets? Using Affinity Photo or another Serif app (I own all). My printer goes only up to A3+ borderless. Thank you very much.
  8. Correct if I am wrong but, it is not possible to save an export in a batch process as a macro (or kind of macro) to apply later to other batch jobs? Thanks.
  9. Dear Gary, thanks a lot for your help; excellent news. I guess one can display only the image using the 4k display? And all the app panels on the second display? (Side note) I noticed that you are using a Mac Mini M1. 8 GB or 16 GB ram? Any issues with serif apps and that M1? No problems dealing with big raw photographic 50 mpx files? Thanks again. Best.
  10. Hello everyone, I would like to count on your help for the following: I use a Full HD monitor and soon I will have another 4k. I'm thinking of using the 4k monitor to view my photos to edit and use the older FullHD monitor for the program's palettes (using all three Affinity apps; Photo in particular and also the others) Is this possible? My system is an old but still very faithful Mac Pro 5.1 with a new Radeon RX 580 8GB graphics card. Thank you in advance for your help.
  11. Later, probably with a Mac Mini and the same Eizo monitor, I can always use this graphics card in an external box like the Razor X and turn this Radeon card into an eGPU with a fast connection. It is an upgrade now on the Mac Pro that may have more life to follow when the Mac Pro becomes just a "server".
  12. Thank you very much for your testimonial. I plan to go only to Mojave since being more modern it is more stable than Catalina. At a time when Apple is in the transition to its own processors, maybe it is a good policy to make a small investment in a graphics card and stay a little longer with this Mac Pro 5.1 and then when the Mac Mini, etc; are in a new phase, think about a machine upgrade.
  13. Thank you. With this type of card it run Metal. That is the goal. Upgrade from High Sierra to Mojave. Better performance with Affinity Trio? That is the question ,-)
  14. Thanks for your opinion. I am thinking about a card like this; because mine is 10 years old without Metal support. https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/Radeon-RX-580-ARMOR-X
