  1. Just updated to Photo 1.8.4 yesterday (7th Aug) through the Apple Store, Photo opens up with a reduced screen size and no tools showing at all. Photo crashes instantly when trying to load any new documents or new templates. I also have Designer and Publisher. Designer has also just updated to 1.8.4 and works okay. Anybody else having these problems? 

    Numerous crash reports have been sent to Apple.

    Using 2019 i7 mac mini with 16GB Ram and LG 32inch 4K monitor, had absolutely no problems with Photo before updating to 1.8.4.

  2. Sitting back and waiting, waiting, waiting patiently for Affinity Publisher. I am hoping to produce two more childeren's books, after using apple ibooks for my first publication, I cannot wait for the latest addition to the sublime Affinity Suite. I keep checking for any latest news on Publisher - but sadly nothing has appeared lately. I shall continue to live in never ending hope and dream of yet another superb application from the team at Affinity.

    I'm over the moon to tell you about the launch of Affinity Spotlight, the new place to go for creative inspiration, learning resources and Affinity news. Whether it’s features on artists and photographers using Affinity, tutorials on how to get the best from the apps, behind-the-scenes insight or news and updates, it will all be posted on Affinity Spotlight.


    We’ve literally just made the site live and we’d love you to check it out!



    This has been a real labour of love for our web dev team and our content team, and of course, this is just the start—we’ll be posting new stories and articles each week. We hope you like what we’ve done and enjoy reading our stories.


    All the best,

    Kate, I cannot access any of the articles in Spotlight, when I click an article, the "about" or "contact" buttons I get the following message from Safari. Any ideas why?

    Very nice work. This must have taken a very long time.

    The only slightly negative thing I would mention is that the reflection looks a bit odd to me, for two reasons:
    (a) I would have expected the objects - lights etc. - in the refection to line-up with the corresponding objects above the water (maybe I've got this wrong in certain circumstances but no image that I've found shows the same distortion);
    (b) The moon is missing (I'm not sure whether the stars would also be reflected well enough to see them).

    Ignoring those tiny issues - and neither is a "deal breaker" - it's great stuff. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    As for using a photo as a template: Why not? If you can use something to make life easier for yourself then use it. If artists like Vermeer can use things like camera obscura - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camera_obscura - to help them paint then I don't see a problem with people doing something similar. Drawing using a photo as a template is no different to that for me.

    GarryP, thanks for your comments - greatly appreciated.

    The pic took approx 40 hours with repeated redraw and erase, you are correct about the reflection - I think in my haste to complete the project I did not review the completed project as I should have done. Further to your comments I went back this morning to the project and re-worked the reflection, I tried inserting the stars as reflections in the water but for me they did not look correct. I have attached the re-worked pic, once again thanks for your constructive comments.

  5. This was my first major design using AD for the main design and AF for the mesh warp to achieve the roof panel curves. Although I used a photograph as a template, this was done intentionally as the object of the whole exercise was to learn the processes involved with these fantastic programmes.

    Hope you do not take offence at my using a photograph as a template.
