  1. What setting do I need to choose to print a photo cropped to 11x14" in Affinity (so it will fit into that size mat opening) and printing to 13x19 paper. I set the printer properties to the paper size (13x19) and print the cropped photo but instead of 11x14 the print fills the entire 13'' space with 1.5" borders on the other two sides. The Help Manual says: in the Show Details of the dialog): Actual Size—the project's current image and canvas size is honored. Scale to Fit—the image is temporarily scaled to fill the selected page size with no cropping taking place. Scale—the image is printed at the temporary scale set in the adjacent input box. 'I chose Scale, but I don't know what "the adjacent input box is" and I don't know what "Show Details" Is . I don't see "Scale to Fit" nor "Actual Size" In the drop down box below "Scale " I see: "Fit to Printable" and "Shrink to Printable." Very confusing.
  2. Are there Affinity printing tutorials? There is nothing in the Affinity Workbook. Searching for Printing Tutorials results in nothing (eg. "do you mean profiles") I want the best quality for large prints. Right now the biggest is 13x17 but I want to go up to 30x40 and have a pixel chart recommendation for sizes. Is there loss of quality or no change in printing from Affinity or Page Plus or FastStone image viewer? Are there differences in printing from .jpg or .tif or .aff or .pdf . (I don't use .raw)
  3. I have photo cropped to 8x10. How do I make it print 8x10 to an 8.5 x 11" paper. Clicking print, the preview shows in Red and prints to the entire 8.5x11" page and thus crops the photo on all four sizes. Clicking on "Print to Printable" and "Shrink to Printable" shows the same image in the preview - which is still Red. The print fits the image nicely to the 8.5x11: paper. I want however an 8x10. I need to apply this to printing on 11x17 paper (which i have not done before) in order to fit it into a matted frame. Thanks for help.
  4. This is most frustrating experience. 1) First, i testify that the perspective tool I have used on about 30 different photographs of my wife's oil paintings is no longer available. It was in the the Layer tool bar drop down and there were two live layer choices. The one I chose had a long list from which I chose a perspective tool. It worked perfectly to straight photos taken with a camera not on a tripod.. The list that now exists in the latest Affinity version shows half the choices and the perspective is one that is no longer available. 2) Can I return to the Affinity version that had the left face of the female when opening? This will solve the problem. How do get rid of this newest version and return to the older, the previous version of Affinity ? I will then report exactly which tool I use. Right now I'm trying to take a photo of a painting and place on a photo of a building wall and need to match the perspective of the wall 1) The mesh tool does not do what I need. The picture looks correct, but when I save it - what I saw is not what I get. 4) The new tool in the Layers / Live Projection / Perspective Projection is a joke. It does not work. 3) The suggested video on perspective is what I'm trying to do BUT WAY to complicated for me. I liked the Affinity tool because it was less complex than Photoshop - although not so mathematically controlled. I don't want to pay the extra money for Photoshop for this one tool feature. I just want to return to Affinity's previous version.
  5. The video was excellent, Carl. Not what I need though. Also the Perspective Tool in Filters / Distort / Perspective does what I want but leaves the checkerboard space. Is there a tool to get rid of that. I am still wanting to know what happened to the Perspective Tool that I used before the last Affinity Update. I bought Affinity for the ability to correct the camera angle Perspective from my wife holding her cell phone at an angle. It worked simply and efficiently. I need this tool that seems to have disappeared. The tool I used was in the Layer / Live Filter Layer . Now it is NOT there. The Layers / Live Projection is beyond comprehension. Both choices cannot be undone. The perspective layer tool here does nothing but the grid cannot be removed. So I have to delete the layer and start again. WHAT !?!?!?!?!? Please someone tell me where is the tool for which I purchased Affinity. Do I need to return to Photoshop?
  6. Thank you, Walt! All is good now.
  7. I restarted desktop Windows 10 for update. Opening Affinity showed black screen. Through view I clicked on Tools. They appeared on left with no color so I cannot see the icons. Like covered with dark shadow. I clicked on View/Studio and nothing happens so I cannot see or use all the things normally in the right column.
  8. I cannot find the Mesh Tool In the link you shared : to apply perspective: From the Tools Panel on the left, click the Mesh Warp flyout, then the Perspective Tool. I don't see a Mesh Warp flyout on my tool icons on the left I don't find it in any of the drop downs at the top of the page I tried searching for it in the Help Document but it didn't find it I looked it up in the Affinity Book. It shows the icon but not where to find it. Sorry

  10. Have used Live Projection layer in past to correct perspective on photos of art work. Today fhe first thing I noticed upon choosing the Live Projection Layer / Perspective is that the dialogue window does not appear. Usually I choose not to show the grid. The grid appears and I can adjust the corners and the grid changes but the picture does not change. In other words it's not working. Can it be fixed to do what it should do.
  11. Wow. Watching your cursor in the layers right section awoke me to the startling realization that I had the "hand" selected as the cursor. Once I changed to the 'arrow' the frame and handles were available. Thank you so much. P.S. How did you make the instructional video in an email? So helpful!!
  12. I much appreciate your help, but when I open a photo in Affinity there is no frame and thus no markers N,S,E,W. I know how to adjust when the frame and markers are there as in PagePlus and Word. How does one have the frame appear in Affinity? I am not referring to the crop frame - which does have the controls. Thanks.
  13. Thanks Walt. That works great. I can now print for purchased frames. PP: A pre-step back: How do I modify the photo horizontally or vertically (stretching) using side arrows? In Page Plus (for fitting to Greeting Cards) the control appeared by selecting the photo. I don't know how to do this is Affinity.
  14. I want to print borderless to 13 x 19 paper. (A3) with photos that need some cropping and/or stretching. How do I adjust?. I am used to Page Plus of just pulling sides and corners. In crop custom constraint I can choose 13 x 19 and see where I need to adjust for cropping down to A3. How do I stretch?
  15. Trying to learn how to print with Affinity. Photo is adjusted in Affinity and used on website. When I clicking print it shows photo cropped on sides. Clicking on fit to printable it shows correctly BUT the view is red tinted. This is not what I want and don't choose to waste ink and paper. I have printed a few things previously but I never saw this red print before. I uploaded the picture here and it shows the cropped at sides view but no red tint.
