  1. Hi and welcome. There are lots of ways you could do this. You could draw a rectangle, fill it with colour or leave white. Make it slightly larger than the image and place the layer below the image. Or, use the fx studio, select image layer, select fix studio and turn on outline. Adjust settings for size and colour. Or, ..... use other effects such as bevel or 3D. Have fun experimenting, that's what it’s all about.
  2. What RAW format is the image shot in? What method did you use to get it into photos (camera roll?. I have found that some large files can take a while to load so give it some time to do so.
  3. If you create a project folder (empty) then open that folder, you can drag and drop multiple files from camera roll etc into the open project folder. Maybe this helps for next time? Unfortunately, as MEB stated, once they are in AP you can only move one at a time.
  4. Realised my initial canvas setting converts to 2.4 metres x 2.4 metres. Should have been 240mm x 240mm. Working as expected when created at 'realstic' size. Gotta watch where I put those zeros!
  5. A million dollars.... Still buy ???
  6. I am attempting to emulate a tutorial on displacement mapming performed with affinity Photo desktop, on my iPads Affinity Photo. Method. New canvas 2400x2400mm divided into 200x2400mm slices. Make first slice wth rectangle tool, add black to white gradient (tilt gradient slightly) and copy 12 times. Finish with a 2400x2400 image comprising 12 x 200mm Gradients side by side. Simple so far. Issue 1: Exporting this file takes ages and eventually produces a jpg file of over 280mb size. Attempting to reopen this jpg file crashes Affinity. Issue 2: After placing an image in the original 'gradient map .afphoto file, any further actions 'appear' to lock up AP, though in realty I think it is still working, just very very very slowly as the spinning gear is evident. Edit: still spinning 2hrs later Is this processing 'beyond' the iPads capability or is it a limitation/bug with Displacement filter and gradients in AP for iPad? Here is a screen shot of the offending file.
  7. Yep, that's very odd. One for the moderators.
  8. I suggest you update your iPad to iOS 11.2.6 and then carry out a hard reset (hold Power and Home buttons on until the Apple logo appears). Takes about 10 seconds. I find that resolves most issues relating to ram availability. You may also need to provide the developers a little more detail if you’d like them to resolve your issues. Info such as: What RAW format are you using? The file shown in your first attachment shows an image being edited in the 'Photo' persona not the 'Develop' persona so are you having issues editing in Develop (RAW image) or in 'Photo' (Developed image), or both? What do you mean by 'crashed'? Does AP close back to springboard (iPad screen) or simply freeze and not respond? What editing actions have you performed before the app 'crashes'? Is there any consistency in crashing eg. Same point each time.... Is it happening on just one file or every file? The mods here are really helpful. Hopefully they can resolve your particular issues for you. I am finding Affinity Photo pretty reliable and stable running on iOS 11.2.6.
  9. I'm trying to replicate the face in the gnarly tree (PS displacement tute on utube) and AP on iPad, using the displacement filter seems incapable of producing anything like what can be achieved on PS. Perhaps I am using it incorrectly, but I don't think so. Hopefully any fix for the desktop will be reflected on the iPad.
  10. Do you mean 'hide' layer as in unstick the visibility box at the end of the layer? If so, have you inadvertently 'grouped' several layers?
  11. Not sure if this helps but.... In the Channels studio tap the 3 dots to the right of the channel layer you want to create. In the menu is an option to Create Spare Channel (based on your selection. The new layer can then be loaded in a number of ways using the 3 dot menu next to the new spare channel.
  12. Have a look at Documents by Readdle (free). It is a File Manager with built in music/video/Photo/PDF etc viewers). You can access NAS or PC/Mac, Clouds or portable wireless storage easily. Affinity Photo can access Documents app storage via iOS Files. Pretty easy to set up nested folders for various projects to access and save AP work. Then transfer from Documents to NAS etc wirelessly. Documents also accesses Camera roll. It goes some way towards overcoming Apple's sandbox shortcomings. Not perfect but not too bad either, certainty worth a look.
  13. Hi, I am having a problem getting Affinity Photo (iPad) to recognise this macro file. Any suggestions?
  14. @MEB When I select Erase from 'drop down' menu the label changes back to Normal, but as seen in the second pic, the Erase blend mode is still operative. Last pic is original. Edit. Just noticed. If you tap on Erase in Menu the blend reverts back to Normal. If you tap normal on Menu and drag down to highlight Erase, then the bland mode sticks. Maybe that will help Devs solve issue? video shows how to make it work. BA8D0EC8-AE99-4C38-9586-14F17F2879CC.MP4
