  1. I think that "margin" cannot be outside of the document. By definition it is document area.

    Area outside can be bleed. I think AP has no need for it as it is image manipulation app, not a layout/design app for print.


    I'm in web design and development not print. Photoshop is our go to and Affinity Photo is the Photoshop killer so one would only assume the guides go outside the document as in Photoshop.


    Check out my screenshot, it's impossible to see the pixels that the guides line up with.


    Furthermore, when using certain colours it's equally as hard to determine what is a guide and what is an object when using thin borders and straight lines. For all you could know I've put a thin border on the red columns.




  2. Hi MEB, thanks, but there's no such option on here.

    I'm not sure if I am explaining correctly so basically I want my guides (the blue lines) to meet the ruler at all times, not just when I'm dragging them.


    The second attachment shows the guide touching the ruler as I drag one across the document. That's how I want it to be at all times, not just when dragging.


    The third attachment shows my guides contained inside the document. This is what happens once I stop dragging a guide. This is what's bugging me.






  3. Exporting in Affinity isn't the same as Photoshop's 'Save for Web' feature. The whole point of 'Save for Web' is to optimise images for the web by removing a lot of useless metadata from the images like camera model, time, white balance, etc. This reduces image file size dramatically making it optimal for a web designers and developers.

    Exporting JPEG files with Affinity Photo seems to reduce the file size more than Photoshop's 'Save for Web' feature.

    But Photoshop's 'Save for Web' feature reduces a PNG file by roughly 30% more than exporting with Affinity Photo.

    It would be great to have a similar feature in Affinity so users can preview the image as they're optimising it and get a similar file size to one that's exported from Photoshop using 'Save for Web'.
