  1. Hi Warwick Kemp, Welcome to the forums You could design the pages in Designer and then use the 'Place' functionality to import your Affinity Photo images into your Designer document, and then export this as a PDF for print. There are other programs available specifically designed for creating photo albums/scrapbooks, but unfortunately there is no direct Affinity version of this.
  2. Exactly so! No specific advantage over either, although a rectangle is arguably easier to change/edit in the future, should you wish to change it. It could be used to nest an image inside for the background, and the rectangle would always ensure the image is clipped to the documents size. That's very kind of you, thank you!
  3. Thanks for that, I have replied with an updated file with the following changes: I changed your fill to a rectangle, so that the slice export will select the whole document size, rather than just the bottle with a fill behind. I then duplicated the shadow group and rectangular background 5 times and ungrouped the bottles, then grouped each bottle with it's own shadow and background, naming the groups accordingly. Now in the export persona, you can select each group and create a slice from each separately, then export all 6 slices at once. Hope this helps!
  4. Hi Fotoloco, Firstly, are you using Affinity Photo or Designer please? Toltecs suggestion here is potentially Affinitys closest option to achieving the desired output, but this depends on the result you are looking for. Could you provide samples of your work, or perhaps a more in-depth description of the required output? There may be another tool to help you achieve this, but I am a little confused based on your first post as removing any colour from an image will change the overall colour/tone of the image, unless you use the aforementioned tool with tolerance set at 1-2% for very specific coloured pixels.
  5. Hi MartinsRibeiro, Unfortunately there is currently no direct option to set in the export persona to enable exporting in the way you wish, however there may be a workaround for you. If possible, could you provide us with a copy of your .afphoto file so we can look into this for you? It may depend on how the background and shadows are set up, hence me requesting the file If you do not wish for your work to be public, you can send me a personal message through my profile with the file!
  6. I appreciate your in-depth testing and feedback to us, I'll have this thread moved to Feature Requests for our developers to see and either comment on or consider for a future update.
  7. Thanks for that gdenby! I'll pass the file and info through to the relevant people
  8. Thanks for the further info gdenby, if possible could you provide me with a few samples of those that work and those that don't so we can investigate this further and log it with out developers?
  9. Hi Medical Officer Bones, Unfortunately we don't currently have a direct setting for this, however if you change your document to a 32bit HDR colour format then Affinity will use the linear nature of the colour profile and display colour blends as though this option were enabled. I hope this helps!
  10. Hi ynsongcn, Welcome to the forums! I have recently imported 20 brushes into Designer in .abr format in the Pixel Persona without error, so the issue may be file specific. If possible, could you provide me with a copy of your .abr brushes? Feel fee to PM them to me if you do not wish for the file to be public
  11. Hi Sanity_Rose1, Welcome to the forums! Is this happening no matter what image/document you are working on? This is not an issue we have heard of before and need some further details to investigate. Am I correct in saying that the matte visualisation shows once, and then will not load again? Does the same thing happen if you open a new document - ie you can refine once, then the feature stops working - or can you only refine once in any document before it will not work correctly again?
  12. Hi Wsg7562, If you have opened an image and not yet saved the .afphoto file, choosing 'close' in the hamburger menu will automatically delete the file. If you have already saved the .afphoto file then unfortunately you cannot delete the file from within the Affinity app, this has to be done in your 'Files' app. To open a document that has been saved on your iPad but closed within the app, click on the '+' option and select 'Open from Cloud'. In the left hand pane you can choose your iPad as a storage space and open the file that had been previously closed!
  13. Hi John P, Welcome to the forums This isn't an issue we're currently aware of, may I ask which fonts you are using so I can try and replicate this? Have you used these fonts in other apps without issue?
  14. No problem at all If you wish to keep your gradients not rasterised then I'd recommend exporting from Affinity in .SVG, opening the file in Illustrator and then saving as an EPS. This will keep your gradients non rasterised, as unfortunately our EPS export will rasterise gradients. Of course, do let us know if you need further help!
  15. Fair point, as I've said I don't have an accurate timescale so I'll be more careful with my wording in the future. Apologies!
