  1. To my mind you've made this overly complicated. A much simpler approach would be to have a rectangle with a seamless concrete texture as a fill, then apply a soft black to white or dark grey to light grey gradient with and set its opacity until it suits your taste.
  2. This is the code for an svg with Set ViewBox Checked <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> <!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd"> <svg width="100%" height="100%" viewBox="0 0 45 75" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xml:space="preserve" xmlns:serif="http://www.serif.com/" style="fill-rule:evenodd;clip-rule:evenodd;stroke-linejoin:round;stroke-miterlimit:1.41421;"> <g transform="matrix(1,0,0,1,-280.25,-366.627)"> <g transform="matrix(0.135748,0,0,0.226246,242.207,283.679)"> <rect x="280.25" y="366.627" width="331.497" height="331.497" style="fill:rgb(255,130,42);"/> </g> </g> </svg> and this is the code for an svg with Set ViewBox unchecked <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?> <!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd"> <svg width="45px" height="75px" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xml:space="preserve" xmlns:serif="http://www.serif.com/" style="fill-rule:evenodd;clip-rule:evenodd;stroke-linejoin:round;stroke-miterlimit:1.41421;"> <g transform="matrix(1,0,0,1,-280.25,-366.627)"> <g transform="matrix(0.135748,0,0,0.226246,242.207,283.679)"> <rect x="280.25" y="366.627" width="331.497" height="331.497" style="fill:rgb(255,130,42);"/> </g> </g> </svg>
  3. In SVG export settings, click on the more button and uncheck: Set ViewBox. Leaving the Set ViewBox checked sets the Width and Height to 100% Unchecking it will allow export to specify the Width and height as pixels
  4. When opened in Affinity Photo, the Brightness/Contrast adjustment filter is set differently. In Affinity Photo it displays as In Photoshop it displays as There is no Gamma Correction or Offset in Affinity Photo's exposure adjustment filter.
  5. Have you looked at Batch jobs? File > New Batch Job... You can export to multiple formats at once and apply multiple macro's

    Import PDF as JPEG

    Open the PDF and take a screenshot, crop as necessary.
  7. Don't download this file unless you want to spend 20mins trying to stop it from locking your system up. I suggest you export as PDF from Quark Xpress or create the logo in another app like Inkscape.
  8. He wanted to fit the blue frame to the image size, dragging the nodes would do that. Not sure why I typed text frame lol!
  9. Without the file we cannot work this out for you, we are just making educated guesses.
  10. Just drag the corner top left and bottom right to their respective corners of the image. or just make a text frame by dragging from the top left of the image to the bottom right of the image.
  11. I'm assuming the line is on the shoe layer... Select the shoe layer Select Pixel Persona Use the Erase Tool to erase that line?
  12. Its a shame Astute Graphics can't port their MirrorMe plugin to Affinity, thats pretty cool.
  13. Blender would seem to be the most obvious choice but doesn't Windows 10 have a rudimentary 3D app called 3D Builder, I think it can be got from the Microsoft Store. There is also Google Sketchup
  14. Inkscape can open EPS, you generally have to ungroup the eps after opening or import, sometimes you have to ungroup twice or more to get the individual components.
  15. Try this. Create a document in Affinity Designer Add rectangle and colour it to something other than white, maybe a nice blue #D2EBEB Now File > Place... the eps file in that document. Can you see the blue? If you can, congratulations you have an eps with a transparent background.
  16. Download the beta it installs as a separate app:
  17. Have you tried looking at Rawtherapee to give a comparsion. I personally know a lot of pro photographers and the Mac boys swear by Photo Mechanic to process their images.
  18. Why not look for Open source/Freeware software focused on CD Label creation like Nero CoverDesigner assuming you use Windows.
  19. A short gif to demo what Mithferion is talking about.
  20. Go to Document Setup... and on the Colour Tab tick the box that sets Transparent background and click OK Export to eps now.
  21. I exported a png24 from the original afphoto file and on my Mac Firefox this reads correctly, a png8 reads as 7f7f7f
  22. Is the Firefox colour picker set right, I've just tried with Mac colour digital meter and it shows the correct hex numbers for each square. Actually I've just tested your png export and the 808080 reads 7f7f7f and 7f7f7f reads 7f7f7f

    JPEG problems

    Could you upload a jpg that does this? ...and have you tried resizing in Affinity Photo Beta 1.7 to see it this issue behaves the same after export from 1.7 beta.

    Margins

    I think you've found a bug jackamus because when changing document size and margins not checked it will add them regardless of print dimension used. in Affinity Designer Beta 1.7 the A3 template has margins selected by default, unchecking them resizes the document without margins. 1.7 beta has the Preset option now so just create a document and call it A3 - No Margins and use that from then on.
