    Lightroom Plugin

    I use Lightroom 5.7 as a dam and it allows you to edit in another software (AP) with lightroom adjustments ( in preferences). Send it to Affinity Photo do your changes, hit save and it goes back to LR, right next to the original. You have choices of how you want to send it and you can also save it as an afphoto file some where else.
  2. Deleted post Alfred answered question well.

    text under photo's

    Couple of ways. Decide on pic size and make a document slightly longer or wider. Select file > place and put image on document. Type on bottom, top or sides in extra space. Make pic the size you want and go to document > resize canvas and add the necessary space to the canvas size on the side you want the printing.

    Lightroom to Affinity and back

    When you hit SAVE after doing your thing in AP it goes back into LR the same way you set up the preferences in LR. If you edited a copy it opens next to the original. When you send to AP you have three choices, Original, Copy and Copy with Lightroom Adjustments. Also what file format etc. I use Copy with LR Adjustments, Tiff, 16 bit, Pro Photo, 300 resolution.

    LightRoom Interface

    Easy to do. Lightroom preferences, external editing, choose >Affinity Photo from drop down, choose again and you're good to go. It'll show up in Edit in. Works great, use it all the time.
  7. As above. If the Transform is not visible go to View > Studio and check Transform. Should be on bottom right. Open and you can set size and where to put it.
  8. If the whole document is the rectangle you should be able to grab the brush tool and any brush and paint. If the rectangle is in a document AP makes a new layer when you grab the brush tool. Move it down and right to make it a child of the layer and paint away.

    [AP] Inside outline

    Fill the layer with the color you want the stroke to be and use the marquee tool to draw the width of the stroke outside of the marquee and hit delete. You can even have a nice feathered stroke.

    Healing Brush Tool?

    Check out the customise tools button on the VIEW menu second from bottom. Any tools you use a lot you can put in the column alone, rest the tools to default, or put tools in more than one column.

    Merging two photos

    Open your first image. Then go to file >Place from drop down menu. Navigate to your second image and click open. drag a corner to make it the size you want. Will be on top of the layer stack. You can also copy and paste the second image.

    Adding .icm profiles

    In your print dialog box, click on the double headed arrow for scaling and artboards and click on color matching from the drop down menu. Then click on color sync, not Epson color controls, your profiles should be there.

    Stroke in Affinity Photo

    If you use the FX (click it.) at the bottom of the layers panel there's a place to choose outline check it and you can then choose outside, inside or center.

    Tool Bars

    Under view go to Studio > on fly out near the bottom there's a show right hand studio. Check it.
  15. You can always place an image more than once for different sizes. You can command drag for same size image and adjust size with transform. That's why I really like LR's print module. Great to print from.
