  1. I use the windows Snipping tool. Very easy to use. John
  2. As far as windows goes, the answer is no. There have been requests in the Feature Requests for Photo forum. You might like to add your voice to one of those threads. John
  3. You would probably have got a much faster response if you had posted your Question in the Questions forum. This Tutorials forum is really for Tutorials that members can consult. Often a member will post a Tutorial in the Tutorials forum following a Question in the Questions forum. Anyway, thanks to @Pedro Soares for an explanation. Slices is something that I have often wondered about but have never got round to using. John
  4. A recent post in the Questions forum bemoaned the lack of positioning in the Print dialogue. If I want to position an image at the top of a page, I have to resize the canvas to add blank space. This includes a positioning grid as well as sizes. It would be much better if the Print dialogue included this grid. Please add a positioning grid to the Print dialogue. John

    Pixelated Layer on Export

    Possibly,, if you convert your vector logo to a larger-resolution bitmap (1200 x 400), then Resize down to 600 x 200 it may apply some anti-aliasing (depending on the re-sizing algorithm) which would reduce the apparent pixilation. John

    Planetary Photography

    Surely, if you start with an RGB image, then separate it into three single-colour images/channels, then these will already be properly aligned (since they all came from the same original photo). Isn't this what you get when you stack the images using Align? If you use the median option, then it will ignore outliers. As far as I can see, you have just a single step which, as you say, Affinity Photo can do. John
  7. If you use a batch job, you can use it to: Open a file to edit; Apply one or more macros; Export to a named location and selected export parameters. Would this do what you want? John

    Wrong colors

    You do not actually say, but I would guess that you have the same image that appears differently in Photo 1.6 and 1.7. Have you set the same colour profile in each? Which would you say is the 'correct' colour? It looks like a Meerkat to me, in which case I would say the 1.7 pic looks more accurate. John
  9. Perhaps I am a bit late here, but here's a suggestion. Assuming that your image is black on (off) white, apply a Threshold Adjustment Layer (Layers > Adjustment Layer > Threshold). Adjust the slider to suit. The result will be a pure black-and-white image. You can then apply Erase White Paper, as @PÅ¡enda suggested. John

    Planetary Photography

    I was assuming that you were taking images in the three separate colours as many astrophotographers do. If not, then what do you mean by 'realign within each image'? John

    How to wrap flat onto cylindrical

    I started a thread on wrapping a label round a bottle. If you enter the following in the search box: It will give you the link. John
  12. How does that differ from what you would do in AP? NB, in a batch job, you can specify the destination folder as you wish. John
  13. No you cannot. The workaround is to ensure that your image is in an 8-bit greyscale, and then apply a Threshold Adjustment Layer. Although it will technically still be an 8-bit image, it should compress down quite well when saved in a png-8 format.1 John.
  14. Affinity macros can do many (but not all) things that PS actions can do. It is possible, for example, to write a macro to enlarge an image by (say) 50% (admittedly not as easy as shrinking it to 50%). You should explore these first. Unfortunately many AP actions (such as Resize) tend to get baked into the macro making them less versatile. However using Filter > Distort > Equations, you can get round this. John
