    So, what was it like before improvement? John
  2. Select All Copy (to Clipboard) New from Clipboard This creates s duplicate (unnamed) document. John
  3. Topaz Impression will do what you want, but is expensive ($99). It runs under the Topaz Studio plugin. John
  4. This is just me displaying my ignorance of Mac operating systems. John
  5. When Affinity develops a raw file, it utilizes the entire image. Many other raw processors will crop the outer pixels (which often have artefacts) away. Whst you are seeing could be just one of these artefacts. Crop it as you will. John
  6. @nedex The question is a bit ambiguous. Are you asking about plugins that work with Affinity Photo or about plugins that work with Apple Photos? There are lots of plugins for Photo. Many (but by no means all) that work in Photoshop will work in Photo. Examples include the Nik Collection and most Topaz plugins. Note that some users seem to be having difficulties with the Nik set, but they work for me. John
  7. On my Windows box, the pixel count remains the same, but it doesn't on yours. I suggest that you submit it as a bug report. John
  8. Have you checked your Layers panel to see if there is an extraneous green rectangle? John
  9. Affinity will not change the number of pixels if you have Resample unticked. In this case the dimensions are greyed out, indicating that they cannot be changed. It will upsize or downsize if Resample is ticked. John
  10. You are right. I applied a change from 150 to 300ppi on a document and the pixel sizes remained the same, as expected. I then repeated the process (150 to 300) setting the units to centimetres, and the size in centimetres remained the same. There has been problems in the past with this, but I thought that it had been fixed. I was using the new 1.7 version. John
  11. I posted this question in the Photo for Windows Forum and got this reply from @Patrick Connor: It should´╗┐´╗┐ work, taking a copy if the 1.6.5 installation folder before you update, leaves the copied 1.6.5 EXE working,. It will not be able to load the 1.7 .AFPhoto files, and may get confused over new buttons on the toolbars etc. I copied the Photo folder and renamed it Photo 1.6, then installed Photo 1.7. So far I have had no problems in running the two versions. This was only this afternoon, so there me problems surfacing at some stage, but none so far. All my plugins that worked for 1.6 are there in 1.7 and thse that I have tried work. Note this is on Windows. It may not work on a Mac. John
  12. I would guess that you have your default units as cm. Try this on a 10 by 6cm document at 150dpi: Select Document > Resize. Change the units to pixels. Change the resolution to 300dpi Do not tick Resample. Click OK. Your document should still retain the original size in pixels, but this should map to 5 by 3cm at 300dpi. John
  13. I did this following the advice of @Patrick Connor. The intention was to have a version for those plugins that do not work in 1.7. I have only had an hour or so to play, but everything that worked in 1.6 still works in 1.7. If the preferenced maintain the same propcol fioes that can only be good. John
  14. What are you getting a refund for? The new 1.7 is a free upgrade from 1.6. Before I installed 1.7 I made a copy of the 1.6 folder, calling it Photo 1.6. I can still run the old program from there. I recently upgraded to the new Nik Collection 2 and it works fine with both 1.6 and 1.7. John
