  1. “the rule is always, close any file before you attempt to open on any other system.” Unfortunately this completely negates the entire point of handoff.
  2. OMG!! - I’m actually speechless. Thanks Alfred.
  3. Is is still not possible to import swatches into AD on iPad??? I have just tried again after not using AD for over a year, and there still seems to be no option to import swatches? Surely I must be mistaken, so could someone please advise me how to achieve this. Thank you all in advance.
  4. Hi Vienna, I obviously have no idea how much you know about resolution etc. so please excuse me if I'm advising you on matters which you already know about. Example: If you have a 1000px X 1000px image @ 72dpi, and then simply increase the resolution to 300 dpi - the image will shrink in size but become sharper. HOWEVER - if you increase the dpi to 300 but still want the image to be the same dimensions (1000 x 1000) the image will pixelate badly. With regards to resolution (dpi) - an image can always be downscaled (resulting in a sharper but smaller image) - but not upscaled, without degradation. This is obviously a simplified answer, as there are multiple factors with regards to resolution, but I hope this helped somehow.
  5. Hi everyone. Not sure where to post this, so I will ask it here - does anyone know of a free Big Sur icon template which can be used to create the main icon for a macOS Big Sur app? Thank you all in advance.
  6. Just tried Photoscape X and have absolutely no idea how to wrap an image to a sphere - even after looking at your screenshots. I will have to try the "Distort > Spherical" way in Affinity Photo. Thanks.
  7. Hi, - is the Pro version of Photoscape X required to map onto a sphere, and can you map your own images, or just create lines as per in your example? Thanks.
  8. Hi, can anyone advise me how I map an image around a sphere in Affinity Photo. Thanks in advance.
  9. Thank you both - I just tried both of your solutions and both worked perfectly. Thank You!
  10. Hi, I had an image consisting of 2 layers - a layer of white handwritten text, and a black background layer. Somewhere along the line I accidentally flattened the image and lost my original. I now need to extract just the white text. Can someone advise me how to either get just the white text onto a new layer, OR, change the black background into specific RGB values. I can't just type the text onto a new layer as it is handmade text, and not a font. I have tried to select the handwritten text and put it onto a new layer, but the text appears very jagged and is unusable. Any help appreciated. Thank you.
  11. Hi everyone - does Affinity Photo / Designer contain any kind of stylus smoothing similar to Hej Stylus? I am considering purchasing it, but just thought that maybe Photo / Designer has this as a hidden feature. Thank you all in advance.
  12. I personally thought exactly the same thing - I would love to see a release where NO new features are added, but LOTS of little things are improved. Kind of a "major maintenance release". I'm guessing this would make a lot of existing customers very happy. I still love Affinity Photo and Designer, but still can't get my head around why new features are continually added, whilst some basic glaring omissions are passed by..
  13. Hi, The save dialogue I see has no file extension added - it just displays the name. When I add .afpalette and then save the file - it saves as DarkMode.afpalette.clr I just did a test - irrelevant of wether I load in a .afpalette swatch, or a .clr swatch - the export option only saves as .clr???
  14. Hi everyone, I have imported a "DarkMode.clr" palette/swatch into affinity photo and would like to export / save it as 'DarkMode.afpalette". Whenever I export the palette/swatch, it automatically exports it as a .clr file, as opposed to .afpalette. Could someone please explain how I save it as an Affinity specific palette/swatch file. (macOS Catalina) Thank you all in advance.
  15. Does Affinity Photo have the ability to use handoff? I have bluetooth turned on, on both my iPad and Mac Mini, and they are both logged in to the same iCloud account and wifi network, but I have no idea how to start an image on my iPad, and then handoff to my Mac? Any help appreciated.
  16. Hi, If I create a multi layered file in Affinity Photo, then export as jpg - am I correct in assuming that the file will be automatically flattened, as I do not want the font embedded in any way. Thanks.
  17. This request has been around for quite some time, but doesn’t seem to be very high on the list for some reason??
  18. Hi, I’m not sure which category this post should be in as its a general question. Is anyone running Photo or Designer on a 2020 Mac mini? I’m thinking of purchasing one, but am worried that it will stutter with a large Photo or designer file - therefore was wondering if anyone here had experience with a Mac mini and the Affinity products. Thank you all in advance.
  19. Thanks, but I’m simply referring to the hundred plus .afpalette colour swatches I have made, and now have sitting in my iCloud. I have no access to any other devices, apart from the iPad I am using, so have absolutely no way of getting them into photo on iPad. Having to resort to a long winded workaround requiring 2 different devices (iPad and Desktop) and 2 copies of Affinity Photo (one for each platform), just to get access to palettes is unacceptable for a professional software application.
  20. I simply cannot understand why it is still not possible to import colour palettes in either photo or designer on iPad. Getting really frustrated now, what is the point in introducing new features, when an absolute basic function is completely absent. I love Affinity products and want so much to swap over completely to Affinity, but glaring omissions like this prevent me 🙁
  21. I can’t understand why something as simple as a swatch file would need to be propriety? Surely it would be better if people could easily find out how to write to a .afpalette format - this would mean that more colour app related developers would be able to inlcude affinity products, as opposed to exclude it?
  22. Ahh, Ok, Your second point just mentioned a develop tool, so wasn't sure what exactly you were looking to do. Just thought I would try and help.
  23. Hi KC Honie. Regarding your second point - Do you know there is an actual "Develop Persona" in Affinity Photo (it's located at the top left). Please excuse me if you already knew this, but due to your point 2, I thought I would point it out Hope this helps.
  24. Has this resource been updated to make it suitable for iOS 13, as I think the shape changed slightly (from a squircle to a rounded rectangle) - or was that just the macOS icons which changed ever so slightly?
