  1. Hi Guyon An Affinity Spotlight article was written on the piece, I recommend checking it out at the link below! https://affinityspotlight.com/article/tricks-of-the-trade-how-jean-charles-debroize-makes-the-magic-happen/ "Cutting out fur and hairs is something rather intricate. Many tools can help you get good results very quickly, but I prefer to add hairs on the outlines myself. This way, I can recover transparency from the background and put the emphasis on how fluffy the fur is. To achieve this, I use a very thin paintbrush and simply draw hair by hair. It is a work of patience, but I really enjoy doing it directly with the Apple Pencil on the iPad."
  2. Hi pfaffi Please see the following thread for how to install macros on the iPad - Unfortunately there's no Macro Studio to allow you to create your own macros on the iPad version yet, but this is something we may implement in a future update!
  3. Hi MacGB This has been answered in the split thread I created from your last post, please see the below thread here -
  4. Hi ruma, Welcome to the forums Changing this preference should allow the image to open in AP. What format are the files please? From which camera do they originate? When opening an image from bridge, you say Affinity opens but the image does not. Does any image open, or just a blank screen? If you right-click the file and select open with > Affinity Photo, does this open the image correctly?
  5. Thanks for your report, I've split it from the original thread so that it is it's own thread in our beta section of the forums, as the beta has its own separate place to report bugs. If you have any further issues to report, please post them in the forum section below - https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/19-photo-beta-on-mac/
  6. Hi Vicente Bermúdez, Welcome to the forums Thanks for your feedback, I'll move this thread to Feature Requests for our devs to see and consider!
  7. Hi NRM To reset your studio back to default go to View>Studio>Reset Studio. I hope this helps!

    Bonjour Philippe71 Malheureusement, il est impossible de forcer le chargement d'une image avec un niveau de zoom de 100%. Toutefois, vous pouvez utiliser le raccourci clavier CTRL / CMD + 1 à tout moment pour définir le niveau de zoom sur 100%. J'espère que ça aide!
  9. Hi stvreumi, Welcome to the forums Unfortunately this is a limitation placed on us by Mac OS, as the in app help will always default to your system language. If you want to select which language you view the help in, I recommend using the online help which can be found at the link below - https://affinity.help/photo
  10. Hi Leoabp You'll likely be able to achieve the same effect using the Perspective Tool in Affinity Photo, but unfortunately there's no guided mode like in LR. I'll move this thread to Feature Requests and Feedback now, for our developers to see and consider adding into a future version!
  11. I'm sorry to hear this, I'm not seeing the same on my Chrome browser here, but I'll get our web team to double check everything. In the meantime, please use the direct download link below https://www.dropbox.com/s/z3x1d8h4ug11zwo/affinity-designer-
  12. Thanks for confirming that, do you receive an error message if you follow the below link on Chrome? https://affinity.serif.com/signup/trial/designer/
  13. Hi Rick Sorry to hear this, unfortunately there's no way to force stop an action within the app, but you can force close the app at any time - however some work may be lost from autosave when doing so. Could you please provide a copy of your .afdesign file here so we can investigate this for you? Which model iPad are you using please?
  14. Hi Linslusen Could you provide a copy of your file and some screenshots of your print settings, from within Affinity and your printers direct settings please?
  15. Hi TaoJiang, Welcome to the forums Sorry to hear you're having trouble. Are you looking for the Mac or Windows trial please?
  16. Hi dachalkman312, Welcome to the forums It sounds as though Affinity Photo will be best for your needs, so I recommend downloading the trial from the above link! It's only 10 days, but we do offer a 14 day money back guarantee on any software purchased, just fyi

    Blur and unshared Filter

    Hi Mich1248, Welcome to the forums When adding the filter, make sure it is either above your image layer, or nested within your image layer to ensure it will effect your image. If you're still having issues, please include a screenshot of your app with your layers studio open!
  18. Hi Harmy I'm sorry to hear this, the inpainting tool should create a red overlay where you paint, which will disappear when you let go of the mouse. If your brush is not working, you can reset your app back to default settings to see if this will help. You can reset your app back to its default settings by holding down the CTRL key while launching the app. When the Clear User Data window appears, click Select All and then Clear. The app will now open. Be aware that resetting your app back to its default settings will lose any custom settings such as keyboard shortcuts and brushes etc. To backup such settings before resetting the app, please watch our Affinity - Exporting User Settings and Keyboard Shortcuts video. https://vimeo.com/189596577
  19. Hi CrazyInfin8, Welcome to the forums There's no direct action to flip a whole canvas, however you can select all layers in the layers panel and flip them all at the same time using the aforementioned method. I hope this helps!
  20. Hi Aaron Martin Unfortunately there's no direct feature like this in Affinity Designer currently, but it's been requested before on our forums. You can use the Transform Studio to see the dimensions of any object selected, or alternatively hold the CTRL/CMD key with an object selected and you'll see measurements on the canvas between objects etc. I hope this helps!
  21. Hi MacGB We're aware of this bug in the current live version, however this has been fixed in our latest version 1.7 beta. Could you please try downloading and installing this alongside your live version of the app to see if this fixes the issue for you?
  22. Hi p_mac I recommend you check out the following threads as this has been discussed previously - We also have a dust and scratches filter available in the Photo Persona once you've developed your image!

    No problem at all! Unfortunately we don't have a similar video for Designer currently but we're working on new videos for all apps! In the Pixel Persona of Designer the brush editor works the same as in Photo, in terms of vector brushes, I recommend checking out the following third party tutorial for how to create your own!
  24. Hi Wes Jacobs, Welcome to the forums That's usually generated by a temporary file that hasn't closed correctly. Can you please navigate to %AppData%/Affinity/Photo/1.0/temp/ and see if you have any files here? If you do, delete them, then open Affinity Photo again and see if the problem persists. I hope this helps!
  25. Hi dibella87helen Please make sure your layer is selected in the layers panel and is a (Pixel) layer, not an (Image) layer. If you find your layer is an Image, not Pixel, please right-click it and select Rasterise. If your inpainting tool is still not working, please make sure your Opacity and Flow are set to 100% on the context toolbar. I hope this helps!
