  1. Thanks Walt I was hoping I could do this directly in Photo, without needing Publisher, therefore tagging it as a feature request
  2. Walt, could you point me to a link for linked files then please so I can read up on it please. I havent been around here in a while, and when I was, this wasnt possible. Also, makes perfect sense to me (from a PS terminology point of view). In PS you can have linked smart objects.
  3. Hi Guys My workflow has changed dramatically since I started using Affinity Photo some 4 odd years ago. Also I havent been around here in a long time. As a result, I've been forced to return to PS because of the streamlined scripted workflow. I'd like to return to Affinity Photo, but that won't be possible until such time that scripting is supported. This has been asked for several times over the years, but so far seems there has been no movement in this regard. Any news?
  4. Hi Guys 1.8 finally has smart objects (embedded objects) and it's come a long way. As a next step, can we make this live links please? Meaning if the original file changed outside of Affinity Photo, we will have an option to manually update it in the layers, or just auto update all layers from external sources.
  5. Hi Guys I'm an Affinity Photo user, but I'm missing some crucial features. However, I'd like to see if it's worthwhile getting Publisher, if it has the features I need... With Publisher, can I data merge data sets from csv/txt files? Also link to external files?
  6. Hi 1.7 Is awesome, however I'm not seeing any of the things I was hoping for..... In persuit of automation and faster workflows, when can we expect any of these in Affinity Photo: 1) Automation via script - Javascript/VBScript - or perhaps even an SDK (not macros, thats a totally different thing) 2) Linked Files (almost like linked smart objects, or linked XREFs if you will). We often need to update 20 to 30 layers from rendered 3D packages, doing this manually is a major hassle. We just want to press a button and have all layers update from external sources 3) Data Merge / Data Sets. We work on various templates and need to run data sets via csv/txt file to update text layers and some layers from external sources From that list, I think possibly number 3 can be done with Affinity Publisher, is that correct? Any comments are greatly appreciated!
  7. Hi guys I mainly work with 32bit rendered EXR files. When I'm comping rendered objects into backplates, I need to be able to have coloured masks. This is to ensure shadows that are in alpha (masked), creates the correct tone on the backplate. A coloured mask can for example produce a blueish shadow, where a grey scale mask will produce a grey shadow. Is there perhaps a setting I'm not seeing? Whenever I convert a layer to a mask, it goes greyscale!
  8. Thanks Keith So from the link you posted, looks like I'm allowed to install on more than 1 pc, if they'r all mine. It's been a couple of months since I 1st installed Affinity, so can't remember if it authenticates online or how it works. I take it then I simply use the same email and product key as the 1st installation, and it is suppose to work. No funny stuff like "no sorry, that code is already used"?
  9. Hi all Where can I read my EULA for Affinity Photo? I don't see a link in the app... Basically, I want to know if I can install it on my work pc, and using the same license, install it on my personal laptop?
  10. Hi all When I've setup a bunch of vertical and horizontal guides, they jump or moved when I crop the image. For example if I have an image 5000 X 5000 and have horizontal guids on the bottom of a house's roof line, then crop from that line down, then the lines move and now suddenly those lines are somewhere moved down well below the roof line where they were.
  11. In Photoshop with default HDR toning, local adaptation defaults, I don't get this problem
