  1. I haven't done this myself, but apparently someone got Designer working under Ubuntu Linux using WINE. https://www.linuxcompatible.org/compatibility/report/affinity-photo-165/
  2. I use Affinity Designer for tshirt design creation and also for craft stuff I do for my wife for kids birthday parties and school things - I love Designer and I use it 99% of the time. I use Photo for specific photo things that I then pull into Designer. Sometimes you want a one click effect and see how that works. Saves time. I do do long hand things with brushes and stuff but sometimes a filter is all one needs or wants.
  3. Let me explain. Under Windows I have Paint.net installed and it has a nifty pencil sketch effect and also oil color effect, which are both pretty much single click, and they work great 99% of the time. Something like that for Affinity Photo... I have Affinity Photo/Designer/Publisher licenses for both Mac & Windows (yes I bought one of each for both platforms). At home I use my macbook mainly, at work I hae a Windows box, and knowing how expensive Macs are if my macbook ever dies and I can't afford to replace it I know that a Windows lapotop is cheap. Anyhoo, I was surprised there was no built in filters like this for Affinity
  4. Is there a working oil painting filter, effect, or plugin that works with Affinity Photo? I don't mean a sequence of steps with tools, I mean a one stop effect. Thanks.
  5. I just purchased the Mac Publisher license through the preorder link, but when I go through again to buy a Windows one it gives me a voucher code and when I click redeem voucher it says: Error: The code you entered has exceeded its purchase limit. All I want to do is to buy a Windows license too at the preorder price. Is this not allowed?
  6. Hi. Maybe this is simple but I am not getting something. I have a page that I set the background well outside the page size but the printer is printing a white margin type of space and a larger on at bottom. Designer is set to no margins. I am not sure why I am getting this cutoff. Is this strictly a printer (HP inkjet) issue? IF the background texture and the graphic at the bottom wer well within the measurements of the page, why am I getting this white space on the edges and a larger white space on the bottom of the page? Thanks
  7. I do tshirts on Amazon and other POD which is my main use case for Affinity. If I manage to sell enough in future maybe a new Mac is in the cards, but I planned on turning that money into Bitcoin/Ethereum/etc first so I guess I'll just rough it. Actually my 2011 macbook exports the designs to PNG pretty quickly. It's not like I'm making 3D movie stills or anything. 16gb of RAM and SSD are the big things that keep my machine relevant. Just that, you know about obsolescence etc. It happens..
  8. Thanks for the well thought out response. Actually, if I can't run it on the bare OS I'm not interested. Having all those layers including a secondary OS... I've used VMWARE and VirtualBox and all that stuff in my previous IT career and even in software test9ing (where I am now) and honestly it would be nice to see linux versions but without them I'd just use Windows or Mac. At one time I was so anti Microsoft (post Windows NT SP 2 fiasco) that I used Linux as my laptop OS at the software company I worked for and used Windows in a vmware vm to use things like Outlook mail and MS office apps. I had that flexibility in my job they let me do it. It was a small company and we were ALL nerds with nerd cred, from the VP down to the lowest laptop provisioner... If when the times comes I can stay on Mac I will. If not I will use Windows. All I was saying is that it would be "nice" to have that other option although I understand the reasons why they are not doing that. That being said whjile I bought Mac and Win licenses I use the Mac licenses the most because I prefer the Macbook. (early 2011 i7 with 16gb RAM and new 500GB SSD I replaced the old drive with a few months ago - non retina running High Sierra - not upgradable to Mohave, dammit - but that doesn't matter)
  9. Yeah but I was just adding my 2 cents (or Pence) since this thread is so long anyway. I think there is more to that market than pie charts can tell. People like me who are in all three markets but would get the Linux version to be free from the other two, if that choice existed. As I also stated, I pretty much know it won't happen...
  10. Typo, I just fixed. Mac & Windows - you can see from the rest of the message that if there was a Linux version I would buy that, which is what I was trying to say.
  11. Let me just add to this already voluminous post that I purchased both Mac & Windows licenses for Photo & Designer, and will do the same for Publisher. I dislike Windows with a passion and I love my Macbook, but it's aging and won't last forever. Macs are expensive. If there were Linux versions of these I would buy them, if just to free me from having to eventually replace a Mac or run Windows. I know it's not going to happen, so I'll eventually just look for another newer used Macbook when the time comes, but I can dream...
  12. Trying to select multiple master pages for duplication but using the command key with clicks or selecting the first master then holding SHIFT and trying to select the last master does not select all masters. It only lets me select one at a time. Surely a bug?
