  1. I see...very good to know! Filter Forge is a terrific plug-in and absolutely deserves up-to-date support in Affinity. Unless told otherwise, I'll assume there's nothing I can do to help motivate Serif to fix that functionality. Thanks for your help, very much appreciated!
  2. Hi All: According to Filter Forge, only Affinity 1.5 supports Filter Forge 8 (it's newest iteration). Assuming this is true, is there any way to keep two different Affinity's on my computer: Affinity 1.5, and the most up-to-date version? If that's not possible, are there any other work-arounds for Filter Forge 8 and the most up-to-date Affinity? Many thanks!
  3. Thanks...I really don't want to mess with 'Admin Privileges' for a simple thing like a default save location. Definitely not a problem...I just figured there was a preference setting in Affinity that I couldn't find. Mark this as a lesson learned and perhaps a future feature request. For the moment I'll just navigate to the preferred folder. Again, not a big deal. Thanks for your help, it is very much appreciated!
  4. I have no idea why (obviously), but upon restart, 'export' location always defaults as follows C:\Windows\System32 I'd like to change that if possible...not a big deal, just thought I'd give it a try. Thanks all!
  5. Ok...when I restart my computer, 'export' location defaults to a strange location on my C drive (rather than my preferred folder where everything is normally saved). Is there any way to change the save folder Affinity defaults to on a re-start? Many thanks!
  6. You know...that's a good question. Right now I'm not sure what's happening...sometimes it defaults to the 'proper' location, and sometimes it defaults to a strange place. I'll need to pay more attention to the behavior and get back to you (and the forum). Thanks until then!
  7. That would be nice...unfortunately, no, it keeps defaulting to some dark alleyway on my computer...
  8. I don't like my export default location...is there any way to change the default? Thanks!
  9. Wow, that's what I call an explanation! Thanks so much, very useful info. Much appreciated...thanks again!
  10. That's it! For some reason, the most recent update ( has the 'tonal' option hidden all the way to the right with an arrow...or perhaps that's just a function of my small screen. In any case, I've got it. Many thanks, much appreciated!
  11. In Photoshop, there's an option to dodge/burn shadows/mid/highlights only...for some reason, I can't find that in Affinity. I've searched the forums/Google, and all I see is all sorts of stuff about 'masks'. I looked under 'More', but that option seems to be missing. Is there a specific 'dodge/burn' shadow/mid/highlights in Affinity? If not, is there a work-around? Thanks all!
  12. Sorry, I'm disabled, so I'm not sure what the proper nomenclature is: Question: If I rotate an image, I get a 'blank' checkerboard background (not sure what that's called). I'd like to color the background, but neither 'brush' nor 'fill' work. I tried layers 'Merge Down/Merge Visible' but no luck. However, when I exported to JPEG, it merged, giving me a non-blank (i.e. 'white') background that I could color. Obviously there's got to be an easier way...any help would be greatly appreciated...many thanks!
  13. Posted instructions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks for your help!
  14. Thanks for your help...unfortunately the beta version was totally wonky (from my perspective...it could very well be me/my computer that was problematic). In any case, I went back to an earlier version of Affinity Photo and it works fine. Hopefully compatibility issues will be resolved at some point in the near future...thanks again!
  15. I just updated both Filter Forge and Affinity Photo, and now Filter Forge will not open up inside Affinity. It works as a stand-alone...and I added Nik collection (which definitely works)...but FF gives me the following error message (and I'm careful to use smaller than 3000 x 3000 sized images)...any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated...thanks!
