  1. That would take it to the next level i.e. being able to apply third party PS Plugins in a non destructive way
  2. .... anyway while playing around with Photo BETA i tried a plugin I have by MediaChance Plugin Bridge - a wrapper so you can run 32bit plugins inside 64 bit version of Photoshop.... It seems to work well & I was able to use a 32bit version of Knoll Light Factory with it inside Affinity Photo. Question????? ...... Can third party plugin effects be non destructive? I know Photo has the live/non destructuive built-in effects but any way to make 3rd party plugins non destructive like smart objects in Photoshop?
  3. Yes, so hopefully it will be very tight integration ... Hope I'm not dissapointed
  4. Hello, Any timeframe on when the integration between Publisher, Photo & Desinger will be available, so we can see how it works? I see the buttons in Publisher, but will they just launch each program individually or will the integration be more seamlesss?
  5. Yes I know but its not the same as having the effect in the program to avoid round trips to doifferent apps - Digital Film Tools also has a standalone app as well as the PS plugin
  6. It needs a lens flare effect .... I just tested the last vesion of Light Knoll Factory (v3.2) which still works in Photoshop CC 2019, it doesn't work in Affinity Photo unfortuntely, the only other PS plugin I know off that includes lens fare effects is Digital Fiml Tools, sadly that doesnlt seem to work in Affinity Photo either :(
  7. Its a great tool but using the latest Beta is mightly frustrating that some basics/fundementals are missing ... 1) Please add a basic persepctive tool that works on bitmaps / vectors, in Adobe Fireworks its called the skew tool & works seamlessly on bitmaps or vectors. Altthough I have copies of both Photo and Designer its tedious switching between programs sometimes, maybe because I am long time Adobe Fireworks users and used to the all in one program approach. 2) Please add some text anti-aliasing pre-sets/options, the native feature that was explained to me in Designer is to
  8. still no text anti-aliasing in the latest beta of designer ... seems a glaring ommission to me??? Any particular reason why this feature doesn't seem to get any attention from the developers?
  9. can you do simple perspective/skew effect on bitmaps, shapes and vectors in Designer 17
  10. Hello, is there a separate beta forum for Designer, Photo & Publisher? As long-time Adobe Fireworks users we're may interested in Designer and what new and where its going, finding this forum a bit confusing as we sometimes dont know which app we are talking abut here.
  11. Please add text anti-aliasing options and presets, like smooth, strong, crisp .....
  12. I was hoping that something had changed since that post ... It is an absolute must to have some better text anti-aliasing options. We couldn't replace Fireworks (still our main go to app) or Photoshop with Affinity Designer/Photo without this feature. I think Affinity have done a great job but as a newbie looking at Designer I think they are adding some more advanced vector features whilst overlooking a few key/fundamental features required in everyday use, especially if you are primary concerned with screen/ui/web design mock-ups or creating design elements/components for screen then its a m
  13. Are there any text anti-aliasing options/presets; crisp, smooth etc ???
  14. Yes, but I think it would very, very, very, very nice to have the Photoshop plug-in compatibility for Designer to save switching between apps
  15. Also, the latest versions of HyperTyle and Plugin Galaxy work as far as I can see....
  16. If you have 32 bit plugins this may help you if they do NOT work directly in Affinity Photo : https://www.mediachance.com/pluginbridge/ It acts a s a container, I tested it and a it works well inside Affinity Photo .... Also tested this useful plug-in which I bought a few years ago and it seems to work: https://www.prodigitalsoftware.com/StarFilterPro4.html
  17. Yes, I know but it gets tedious switching apps for frequently used tools ... I've been a Fireworks user for 18 years and used to doing everything in the one app. I'm keeping my finger crossed that the clone tool and flood select tool find their way into Designer soon. For me they are more useful and more often used than some of the other bitmap editing tools already in Designer, so they warrant inclusion
  18. Please add the flood select tool to Designer its a frequently used tool much like the clone tool for touching up and editing bitmaps and I would really prefer it was in Designer rather than having to switch to Photo each time. Our opinion for what its worth after purchasing both Designer and Photo and spending a few weeks now looking at Designer (as a potential replacement for Fireworks which we've used for about 18 years) is we really like what you've done with Designer but we'd prefer not be switching between apps especially for some of the more frequent tasks. Would be more than happy
  19. Hopefully, the devs seem to be doing a good job in adding some advanced features i just hope they don't miss some rudimentary things like this as they can be quite useful.
  20. Yes I have seen the flood select tool, bit of pain though switching to Photo to use frequently used tools like the flood tool and the clone brush
  21. Is the Selection Brush the Designers equivalent of the Magic Wand tool? When testing it I coudn't see a way to set the tolerance level ? Any ideas how I do this?
  22. That works but it doesn't reshape the entire bitmap persay, not really what I was looking for but thanks anyway
  23. For me its a basic feature that you s The convert to curves option in Designer is greyed out when I select a bitmap?
