    File Saving locations

    This 'Feature' has been flagged several times before. I have yet to see any user saying that they are happy with the current arrangement. I have seen it claimed that the Developers are not interested in amending this behaviour, though I have not actually seen any feedback from the developers either way. You really should post your request in the Feedback for the Affinity Suite of Programs Forum. We are told that the developers do read this forum and that they have been known to respond to requests in the forum. John [EDIT] this thread seems to have been moved. (Or else it was originally here and I read the location wrong.)
  2. I have been trying to rise to this challenge, albeit in a half-hour chunks of php programming here and there when I had a moment. I have written a PHP script embedded in a web page that looks at a SVG file and extracts paths, and calculates the length of each segment in the path (a segment is a stretch between two nodes.The units are the units defined within the SVG file. I'm not sure how they would map into actual units in a Designer file. To measure the length along a curve, it is broken up into a series of arcs each of which is approximated by a line. By default it uses 20 such arcs, which seems to give adequate accuracy. I would welcome any feedback on this script, as well as the user interface. On my PC, Kaspersky seems to inject its own components which seem to clobber my careful styling of the interface. John
  3. Does the Sharpness filter action disappear from your History panel? John
  4. You really need to view at 100% when comparing before and after. If you duplicate your layer first, then apply the filter, you can toggle the visibility of the sharpened layer to compare them (at 100% of course). John
  5. Thanks @srg. It clarifies the question, but I still don't know the answer. The only thing I could suggest is that you post a couple of raw files which result in different DPIs when developed. John
  6. @srg, are you saying that you can take two different files from the same camera and then develop each of them, then they result in two different dpi settings in the developed images? John
  7. No problem. You just need to tell Photo where the Nik .8bf files are. Use Edit > Preferences > Photoshop Plugins, then navigate to each folder an click on Add. You will need to restart Photo. John
  8. One possibility is that you have a memory leak from another process. On Windows, I would have the Task Manager window open to monitor memory use. I assume that there is an equivalent facility on a Mac. John
  9. In the past (before the current update) I have found that if I Rasterize & Trim an image, then it behaves itself in the Nik plugins. John

    color reversal

    @John van Barneveld, how did you acquire your negative image? Colour negative film has an additional orange mask. Scanner software will take this into account, but if you scan a negative film as if it were a positive, and then use Layer > Invert, you get the inverted mask as a bluish colour cast. Edit: So when you are scanning your image, you need to tell your scanner software that it is a colour negative. John

    This link seems to be broken. John
  12. You need to ensure that Affinity Photo is set as the default program to open tiff files (rather than Photoshop). Your windows search box should find the scanner software for you, but make sure the scanner is switched on before calling it. Having made the scan to your satisfaction, save it as a tiff file. It should then open automatically in Photo. This should happen whether or not Photo is already open. I find that when it opens the file, the Photo icon on the taskbar turns orange. Click on this and there is your scanned file in Photo. John
  13. If you use the Search for 'Flag-Waving', then it should point you to the macro I wrote to do just that (I actually called it Vexillomorphic Transformations, but that was just showing off). John
  14. In Windows, if you have Affinity Photo as the default program to open tiff files, then if you save your scanned file as a tiff, it will automatically open in Affinity. This works for other file types. This works for me with VueScan and SilverFast. It should work with the software from your scanner. John

    What photo library? I'm on Windows. John
