  1. Hi, Just wanted to let our London based members know that we will be taking part in Living Lines 17 for Today at Apple as part of The Big Draw Festival. You can sign up to secure your place at this event here: apple.co/2yKz0eq Live Art: Pro Photo Editing with Affinity Photo Wednesday 11 October 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm Apple Regent Street 235 Regent Street London, W1B 2EL Hope to see some of you there!
  2. @thomGillespie - the 1.5 update is not in beta yet, this was just a sneak peak at some of the upcoming features. We expect the 1.5 beta for Affinity Photo on Mac to begin in around 3-4 weeks and we will release it on the app store when we feel it is ready. @Paolo - :D @MBb & @livetheshot - Might be best waiting for the beta to look at the features in detail and to see the specifics for yourself as the devs are still working on the 1.5 update...
  3. Check out the sneak peek of the HDR and 360 image editing features coming to Affinity Photo 1.5! Version 1.5 features announced today include: • Advanced HDR merge producing full 32-bit linear colour space images • An entirely new workspace for tone mapping • Focus stacking to bring depth to multiple combined images • Batch processing for smoother, faster workflow • Macros to record and replay a set of commands • An all-new way to edit 360 degree images Some much anticipated features to look forward too here, coming soon to Affinity Photo... :)
  4. Thats great news Shi Lichuan, really pleased to hear it! Would love to see them when you are done too :)
  5. Hi Shi Lichuan, welcome to the forums! I'm afraid this is not something we can give permission for as our content is protected. However, thats not to say we don't really appreciate your efforts! I would recommend that you could make your own tutorial videos using the Chinese version of Affinity Photo and your own content... as far as I am aware there isn't anyone making this sort of learning material for Affinity in Chinese currently. Thanks! Kate
  6. Welcome piotreq! :) This is a known issue. As per our blog post, currently the only way to import brushes into the AD Windows beta is by using the 'Import Brushes' option, which is available in the Panel Preferences of the Brush Panel. Apologies for any inconvenience caused, we hope to get this fixed soon!
  7. Ha, so sorry Paolo, edited it now! (Autocorrect fail... :D )
  8. As you may have heard, we are celebrating Affinity Photo's first birthday! We’re finding it hard to believe that Affinity Photo is now a year old … for a toddler, it’s certainly taken some giant steps! It feels like no time at all since we were nervously launching Affinity Photo into the Mac App Store, anxiously waiting to see whether anybody would be interested in our image editing app… Since then, we’re proud that our bouncing baby has won all kinds of awards. Affinity Photo was selected by Apple as their Best App of 2015 and has been the #1 selling photography app on the Mac App Store. On top of this we are so proud of our community, we couldn't have done this without you. So as part of our celebrations we have got a FREE raster brush set for you—containing 16 brushes for creating concept artwork—that has been created especially by Paolo Limoncelli from DAUB! Get yours here: https://affinity.serif.com/blog/affinity-photo-is-one/#free-brushes Plus, for those of you who are interested in buying Affinity Photo for Mac but haven't taken the plunge yet, we have also slashed the price by 20% in the Mac App Store: https://affinity.serif.com/buy-photo/ Thanks again for all your support!
  9. @evtonic3 - It is always safer to back up any of your own assets, but as far as I am aware my user assets seem to have stayed intact since updating.
  10. @Corsicaman - We are looking at having the 1.5 beta for Affinity Designer available in the next couple of weeks or so, it has got loads of fab new features! @uncle808us - If you haven't already, it might be an idea to make a new thread with any suggestions and improvements you think would be good for grids for the devs to take a look at. @postmadesign - Hmmm, I don't know why you are experiencing that sorry. Can I suggest you make a new thread about these issues? The devs or Paolo from DAUB may be able to shed some light on it... @Optikz @Kevin Day, it may take a little while for the updates to filter through all the MAS, so worth checking back later. It may also be worth restarting your machine and then checking for updates on the MAS.
  11. Hi all, The team have released the latest updates (1.4.2) for Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer, which focus on bug-fix updates, stability improvements and performance. Visit your Mac App Store and click on the Updates page to get the latest releases now. Key improvements Fix for converting between widegamut RGB and sRGB profiles causing incorrect colours Fix for converting colour profile/colour model not undoing correctly for inner glow effects Fix for occasional crash with arrow shape Fix for Rasterise causing layer effects to appear the wrong size if they were present on a scaled object Fix for A1 (Press Ready) preset having the wrong dimensions for an A1 sheet Fix for tool shortcut keys on international keyboards Fix for scaling issues during copy/paste of text items Improved RTF clipboard support Slightly thinner text tool caret No longer output file paths to PDF export, only use file names (for improved privacy) Fix for line weight incorrectly scaling based on object size when applying Styles even when 'Scale with object' was deselected in the Stroke panel Many PSD compatibility improvements, particularly when using 16 bit documents Singleclick in the Art text tool no longer creates a new Art text object if you are already in caret mode on an Art text object Improved SVG font export compatibility Fix for SVG export generating invalid IDs Fix for vector export of cropped bitmaps Fix for PDF import of large images and soft masks Though the focus is mainly on fixes this time we’ll be adding more exciting new features very soon in the upcoming 1.5 updates... In the meantime you can check out the Affinity Designer 1.5 sneak peek video here. All the best! Kate
