  1. Not sure if anyone is still at the office or if you have all gone home for the holidays? I was hoping that we may have found a solution to this problem under the Christmas tree but it appears we need to wait for the next update :-(. Big picture, Affinity is still a wonderful suite of apps that are incredibly well priced and powerful.Hats off to everyone who made them possible! Wishing you all a wonderful holiday and wishing you all the best for 2020.
  2. Trying to paint on mask for Noise live layer and it crashes afphoto. see below for computer config
  3. hi Walt, Thanks for your reply. The resource manager will replace the files one by one but even though all the files are in the folder publisher is not updating the remaining files. But here is the kicker. Every time I close and reopen the file, I have to relink the images... Not sure what is going on?
  4. I just moved a lot of linked files and have no idea how to relink them. Affinity publisher does not even let me know that the link is broken. Only when I try to export the file does it give me an error message.....
  5. I am impressed with the power of affinity photo until I get to the printing stage. I am currently using Photoshop to do a pile of work because the work needs to be printed and Affinity cannot handle the color management (the mac printing interface is too lightweight). Serif could develop one printing module that would work for all 3 of its apps. A strong printer module would add immense power to the Affinity line of apps.
  6. Hi MEB, Thanks for pointing out the Live Perspective tool. It is really great having a non-destructive tool as powerful as this one. What I like most about it, is that it affects all the layers beneath it including masks etc. It would be a nice feature if while in the tool you could pull a guide line out from the margin for reference purposes. Yes, I am admitting that I always forget to prepare my canvas before starting with the perspective tool :-).
  7. I ran two test prints on a canon pro 10. One from CS3 and the other from APH. the photo was srgb. I was printing on Moab paper, so both images had to be converted to moab paper icc. In cs3 photoshop controlled color management and conversion to Moab icc. In APH, ColorSync in print menu was select along with paper icc. I suspect Mac printer driver running the show here? The results were: photoshop CS3 came out perfectly and Affinity photo via Mac was a mess. So disappointing, I hate adobe and don’t want to use any of their products but not sure how to work around this affinity problem? i am sure I am not discovering the wheel here and am eager to hear if anyone else has found a solution to this problem? I am wondering if APH on Windows has better color management? Or if converting the photo in APH to the paper ICC and then printing without ColorSync would give better results? if anyone has any thoughts, I would love to hear them.. thanks.
  8. Set up the perspective tool on image, set tool to source and move the points to a new location. Set source to destination. And select zoom tool, the perspective grid goes back to original position.
  9. Thanks Stokerg Until such time as the Dev team improve the printing power of APh, do you have any recommended workarounds? I am currently trying to understand what I can control and where. Thanks
  10. Used the canon Print Studio Pro on friends computer on Photoshop. This plugin makes printing life a lot easier. Cannot wait for it to be a plugin on Affinity Photo!!!
  11. I am trying to print from Affinity photo to a Canon Pro 10 printer on a Mac running Catalina. I am not sure from tests that I have done that Affinity photo is able to control the print. My procedure is as follows: 1) Select print from APh 2) In the print dialogue box select ColorSync and then icc for paper. 3) can select other items necessary. I suspect that APh has handed over the file to the Mac OS to do the printing? A kind of hands off approach? Problem is that there is no rendering intent selection. I hope I am wrong on this as Photoshop is providing more control over the printing and I would hate to have to go back to photoshop. If anyone could help me out here, it would be much appreciated.
  12. Thanks Gabe. Glad you say "for now". Not being able to use the mask layers is tough :-).
  13. I placed the pixel layer in the group so as to make the group work. Without the Pixel layer in the group. To test, remove the pixel layer, select the adjustment layers in the group named printing and run a print. Now turn off Printing group and run another print. You will see that both prints look identical.
  14. Here is the file. thanks for looking at it. test_layers.afphoto
