  1. I bought Affinity Photo immediately after it came out and I've never actually used it because of little things like this.I also don't like that there doesn't seem to be a way to install Adobe-compatible plugins if you don't actually have Photoshop installed on your machine. Finally, I hate Adobe's monthly rent model. So what have I done? I have a copy of Photoshop CS5 installed on a second (older) 27" iMac running Mac OS 10.6.8 and that's what I use on those rare occasions when I absolutely/positively need to use Photoshop. The rest of the time I just use Luminar. I wish the people at Affinity would come out with a way to install Adobe plugins straight into Affinity Photo. Oh, and the fact that when you paste something it doesn't land in the middle is annoying too.
  2. It has to have been some sort of bug in the AppStore app. I hit the BUY button as if I were going to buy it again and instead of charging me it told me that I had already bought it. Now all is well.
  3. It says “Buy App”, as if I didn't have it on my computer. The same thing happens with Designer. Weird! Check out the scree capture.
  4. I bought my apps through the Apple App Store. f they don't appear in the update list I can't update.
  5. That is not my case. I turn my computer off every evening and turn it on in the morning. I just opened my App Store and there are still no updates.
  6. Hi: I'm running Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer on my iMac 27" 5K running Mac OS 10.12.6 and on my MacBook Pro 15" Retina running the same OS. Both software packages updated on my MackBook Pro but neither has updated on my iMac. I've gone several times to the MacStore App and there's no notice to update. Any idea why?
  7. I have version 1.7.3 for the Macintosh and it doesn't paste in the middle.
  8. Like Carl says, paste in place would be useful to me if I were using Windows. But I'm not. I use a Mac. And by the way, this is not a Beta. It's version 1.7.3, which is a final commercial version.
  9. By the way, I don't know how I ended up with the term “newbie” under my name but I've been at this since 1990. My first Photoshop was version 1. So I've been around the block.
  10. I keep wanting to move completely to Affinity Photo but I keep having to return to Photoshop. After making such a big splash Affinity Photo seems to be losing steam: no clear pluging compatibility, no compatibility with Color Checker Passport, no TWAIN compatibility... the list goes on and on. And since I refuse to pay a monthly fee for Photoshop any longer I've been forced to return to my trusty copy of CS5. Let's hope something else comes along in 2020.
  11. Well, that's not what happens. Maybe I should explain exactly what I'm trying to do. I have a series of templates that I use to print my photos with a white border. For example, I have one that's 13" X 19" that I use for 12" X 18" images. So what I normally used to do in Photoshop was to copy the 12" X 18" image and paste it on the 13" X 19" file. Then I would export the 13" X 19 image as a JPEG and print it to my Canon PIXMA pro 100. The result would be a 12" X 18" photo with a ½" border all around. In Affinity I do the same thing but I have to go through the extra step of centering the image both vertically and horizontally. I find that odd.
  12. I'm trying to do something fairly easy in Affinity Photo and I can't make it happen. If I copy an image from one document and then paste it in another (in Photoshop) it pastes it in the middle. However, if I try the same operation in Affinity Photo it pastes it in the upper left corner. Is there any way to paste something exactly in the middle. It seems easy enough but I haven't been able to do it. Please help. Happy New Year!
  13. Hi: I purchased Affinity last summer through the Apple App Store. When I purchased it I wrote about the possibility of adding support for the Xrite Color Checker Passport. I was told that it was in the pipeline. This is the only reason why I still pay for Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC. I also own Luminar, which combined with Affinity is a killer combination. Sadly, it doesn't support the Xrite Color Checker Passport either. Accurate white balance is a critical part of photo processing. Will support for the Color Checker Passport be available in Affinity any time soon? Thank you for your great software. Orlando Mergal
  14. Good morning: I just received an email from an Affinity tech saying that your software doesn't work with the Xrite Color Checker Passport system. White balance is a critical part of photo processing. Would you consider adding color calibration capability, and the ability to create camera profiles, within Affinity Photo in your next upgrade? I'm sure that many “Adobe Photoshop expats” like me would love it. Oh, and before I forget, I love your customer service. I received an email with my answer (even though it wasn't what I would have wanted to hear) within 15 minutes of asking my question. AMAZING!!! Thank you, Orlando Mergal
