  1. Unfortunately, that is the way macros work. For example, if you record a Copy , Paste acrion in a macro and then apply it to another image, then what gets pasted is a copy of the original image (as recorded). Not a satisfactory action! John
  2. Format usually refers to the way the image is stored on disk and, as such, is not relevant here. Photo will pass on the image to a plugin in the current bit depth. Some plugins will not accept 16-bit images, but I believe the Topaz ones do. I have seen reports that, like you say, the Topaz AI plugins do not perform effectively in Photo. I have not compared them myself (perhaps I ought). Topaz has commented that its plugins are not guaranteed to work in Affinity. Mostly they do so. John
  3. @Conneri2311, you cannot do this in Designer, but you can do it in Photo. In Photo you can use the Liquify Persona, or the Shear tool ( Filter > Distort > Shear ). There is a discussion of this here. You will need to scroll down to get to the Shear posts. John
  4. From my days in programming I know that if something is a minor issue it does not necessarily mean that it requires a minor effort to resolve it. However, in this case, I suspect that it may well be the case. John
  5. I did the same thing with these two as I did to your earlier images, with the same result. At 100% there was no detectable difference between the two. At 300% I could just discern a difference, but not to say one was better than the other. Here is the stack as an .afphoto file. abc2.afphoto John
  6. As a tedious, long-winded method, try this: Create a rectangle that covers your existing shapes (or use the geometry operations on a copy of your shapes). Convert this rectangle to curves and shape it to the desired S-bend. Use the node editor to drag nodes from your shapes to fit withing your distorted rectangle. John
  7. I downloaded the two images, the original from Afffinity and the final one from Corel Draw. I loaded them into a stack with alignment (they were both the same size) and ungrouped the stack. By changing the visibility of the top layer I could quickly compare the images. At 100% I could detect no difference. At 300% I could see that they were different, but I could not say that one was better than the other. John
  8. @Designer1, these two images look the same to me apart from the colour. It is not really a fair comparison to have one dark blue and the other grey. John
  9. Hello @GranJen, and welcome to the forums. What Resources are you trying to download? From the Resources in this forum? From the Affinity Store? You should aim for a meaningful Title for your Thread, such as "How do I download resources?". You are not the first to use 'Mrs' in the Title field. We agree that it is confusing for beginners, but it is beyond Serif 's control. John
  10. @MrWriter, it would probably help if you told us the exact steps you took to create the image we see at the start of this thread. Which tools you used, any transformations etc. A screen recording would be good. John
  11. Each image should have a tab (bearing the file name) at the top, just below the context bar. Click on the tab to reveal the image. John
  12. I use Chrome both on my desktop PC and on Android. In each, when I use Quote, as here, my cursor is placed just after the quotes text (as here). John
  13. It does look as if there is some anti-aliasing going on. I do wonder if you have rotated this line at all. This would exacerbate any jaggies. John
  14. Hello @JDC56, and welcome to the foruums. What version of Nik are you using? John
  15. Hello @Tim Eagan, and welcome to the forums. Load both of your images into Affinity. Before you do anything else, you should ensure that both images are the same resolution (dpi). You can do this using Document > Resize Document. Leave the size values the same, but untick the Resample box, then enter the desired dpi if needed. Select the left-hand iimage and use Document > Resize Canvas. Tick the little square centre-left in the set of nine squares in the array. Click on the lock between the width and height boxes to ensure that these two are independant. Enter a value in the width box about twice (or more) the current width. (or you can enter 200%) and press Resize. Now select the right-hand image and copy it (Cmnd-A, then Cmnd-C). Go back to the left-hand image and paste (Cmnd-V). Use the Move tool to move the right-hand image to the right to the desired position. I find it convenient to use the arrow keys. Use Shift-RightArrow to move quickly, then just RightArrow for more precise positioning. Use either up and down keys if you need to. You can now Merge, Merge Visible or Flatten should you wish for a single-layered image. By the way, you should really use a more meaningful title in your post. 'Subcon' could refer to subcontractor or subconcious, but not "How do I get two images side by side in one image". John
