  1. I'm a freelance graphic designer (35+ years) and ALL my clients want the finished product and all related files for archive as well. Also, if you work in a collaborative environment, it's sometimes necessary to pass along projects to another designer. Being able to easily package any project is a great advantage and time-saver. And as you stated, it's not impossible to hand-collect all the files in a particular project—it's just time-consuming. It seems to me that not being able to package a design is a glaring omission on the part of the developers. I have to wonder if the software developers have ever worked as graphic designers in the real world. Just my humble opinion...
  2. WOW! Here we are almost a year after this post and there is still no method for packaging a project. I simply cannot understand why this feature has not been implemented. As much as I dislike continuing to use InDesign, I guess I have no other choice until Publisher becomes a "real" application. Too bad.

    Did you also try creating a new user account to see if it work with a new user? Just curious. -Chris

    Hi Andrew, I just wanted to give you an update that might be useful to other users. I continued to have problems with opening and saving photos. I'm certain this was because of something in my user profile since I could open and save photos under a different user. Anyway, this morning I booted my computer in safe mode to clear out caches, fonts, etc. and now Affinity Photo is working perfectly. My only thought is that perhaps there were some old files in my cache that didn't play well with Affinity Photo. Who knows, but it's working! Again, thanks for you help in this matter. -Chris

    I tried this and no luck I'm afraid. There must be some corrupted file in my user account that's preventing me from opening files because after creating a new user account I'm able to use Affinity Photo. I sincerely appreciate your help in this matter. At this point, I'm not sure what I'm going to do, but at least I can get Affinity Photo up and running. If you can think of anything else to try, please don't hesitate to let me know. Thanks!!!!

    Update: I just created a new user and was able to open a file that did not reside in my Pictures folder and save it to the Desktop. So it seems that there are some permissions issues somewhere, somehow that are preventing me from using my standard (admin) account with Affinity Photo. Any suggestions? BTW: My current user account has been migrated from other computers over a long, long period of time—if that's any help.

    Hi Andrew, I tried both of your recommended solutions and neither one salved the problem. I can't even save the image to my Pictures folder. It's too bad as I really wanted to like your product. I can't believe you guys released the product after I reported this bug to you months ago. I find it hard to believe that I'm the only person experiencing this problem. I run a VERY clean system. I am the sole user on my computer and have full privileges to every drive, program, and files. No other program gives me this problem. It's truly an Affinity Photo problem. Thanks for your efforts... -Chris

    I just bought Affinity Photo and I can't believe it has the same file permissions problem it had in beta. I cannot open a file that is not in my Pictures folder and I can't save a file anywhere. No matter where I try to save a file, Affinity Photo tells me I don't have permissions to save a file in that location. I have to tell you that I'm really disappointed. I've spent $40, I had reported this problem in beta and the product is pretty much useless if I can't save my work. I guess I'll just have to keep using Photoshop...
