  1. Hi Dave23, Welcome to the forums Unfortunately the Canon EOS 77D isn't currently supported in Affinity Photo version 1.6, however support for this model has been added into our Affinity Photo beta version 1.7! You can find the full RAW support for the beta here, however to use the beta we require a paid version of Affinity Photo 1.6 to be installed. I've included a screenshot below showing a 77D RAW file open in the latest beta version - You are welcome to purchase the software directly on the Affinity Store, then download and install both version 1.6 and 1.7 to try this for yourself. We offer a 14 day money back guarantee if you aren't happy with the software, so there's nothing to lose!
  2. Hi Matt_Spaugh_Photo, Welcome to the forums Unfortunately there's no dedicated function for batch processing RAW files currently, it's certainly something we'd like to implement in the future. You could create a Preset in the Develop Persona, then open a small 'batch' of RAW files - say 5 or 10 - apply this preset to each, develop and then export. Admittedly this is a rather manual process for 240 images however, apologies I can't offer a more refined solution!

    Hi LindaH Unfortunately myself nor my colleagues can recall any glossary type information posted by ourselves. I've checked both the help file and tutorials page for the iPad & desktop build and I can't find any reference to this, my apologies. If you could be more specific - if possible! - as to where you may have seen this (ie on the forums, in the app, on our tutorials site?) then we can try and help further. if you've got any specific questions relating to the app I'm certain myself or other forums users can help
  4. Thanks Carl, I overlooked Macros here. I wouldn't recommend this in the current version as resizing in a macro is currently known to be bugged in relation to the original documents aspect ratio, however I've tested this in the latest beta and it appears to work as expected. You can try this for your workflow and see if it helps Phil!

    Fuji XT3 RAW Crash

    Hi Chironex The thread you have posted in is related to the iPad build of Affinity, not the desktop. This is relevant as the iOS version supports Fuji X-T3 files (ignoring the currently known bug) however the Windows version of Affinity Photo doesn't currently officially support the Fuji X-T3 and this is likely why your RAW files are taking much longer to open. Our latest beta (version 1.7) has a new and improved RAW engine that supports your RAW files and I'm certain you should see speed improvements here. You can download this from the following link and is designed to be run alongside your retail version (1.6) so you don't need to uninstall anything! I hope this helps.
  6. Hi PhilSig, Welcome to the forums Unfortunately there's no option to set 'default' values for the resize document window, it will always show the current document size. I'll move this thread to Feature Requests and Feedback now for our devs to see and consider!
  7. Hi Angelos58, Welcome to the forums Affinity apps can open .PDF files, but unfortunately not .DXF files currently. Do you have a specific workflow in mind here? There are many ways you can 'colourise' a black and white image, and Affinity Photo is more geared towards this kind of work - not that it's impossible in Affinity Designer. If you could provide an example document or video showing what you'd like to do then myself and the community can offer more specific advice!
  8. Hi vulcanpilot, Welcome to the forums Could you please confirm, was the software purchased directly from the Affinity Store, or from the Apple App store please? I ask as the application purchased from the Affinity Store requires Mac OS 10.9 or later, whereas the Mac App Store version requires Mac OS 10.7 or later. Please also note that according to our System Requirements we recommend an Intel 64-bit Core 2 Duo or better (from 2007) - the app should still run on your system but performance may be affected.
  9. Apologies for the delayed response We've seen this happen before when using Google Drive & iOS, it appears to be a 'handshake' issue that affects filenames, unfortunately I've no other suggestion for you than to use another cloud service. Unfortunately we can't read the .AI format, as it is a proprietary format locked down by Adobe. When importing na .AI file into Affinity (on the desktop or iPad) we open an embedded PDF file, meaning we only support features compatible with our PDF importer. Without seeing your original .AI file, it's hard to be certain, but it sounds as though your objects or effects applied are not vector compatible with our PDF importer, if you could provide a copy of your file I can double check this for you. When saving to .AI you are shown compatibility options, one of which is to 'Embed a PDF stream', this option is ticked by default and needs to remain selected if you wish to open your .AI files in Affinity. You may find that you are given further control and compatibility options if you export directly to PDF from Illustrator and then import this into Affinity.
  10. Hi jlg84 I've followed what I believe to be your workflow and I'm able to copy a RAW image from Lightroom CC to Affinity Photo and the image opens as expected. Please see my screen recording below - ScreenRecording_04-23-2019 11-07-30.MP4 Could you please either explain how your workflow or results are different, providing a screen recording if possible. If you're unsure how to record your screen you can find out here.
  11. Hi newbiecat, Welcome to the forums You can create a Macro in Affinity Photo to place images into a document & then use Batch Processing to apply the macro to multiple files and export them all in one step. You can find out more about this from the videos below!
  12. Hi tkserver, Welcome to the forums Unfortunately it isn't possible to record Exporting in a macro, however you can create your macro then use Batch Processing to apply the macro to multiple files and export them all in one step. You can find out more about this from the videos below!

    Using Brushes

    Hi Howandwhy All of the Luminance brushes are pixel based and can only be used in the Pixel Persona (or in Affinity Photo). You may find that you want/need a smoke & fire brush pack for editing your designs, and we offer this pack for sale on our website here. This is also a pixel based brush pack that will only function in the Pixel Persona of Designer or the Photo Persona of Photo. I hope this helps!
  14. Hola JDL Esto sucede cuando varias herramientas se configuran en el acceso directo 'B', por lo que al presionar B varias veces se alternará entre ellas. Puede cambiar este comportamiento sin embargo. Si abre Preferencias de afinidad> Atajos de teclado, en la segunda lista desplegable a la izquierda, seleccione 'Herramientas'. Aquí puede desasignar cualquier otra herramienta que use el método abreviado "B", como el pincel de reemplazo de color, el pincel de píxeles y el pincel de manchas. Ahora, cuando use el método abreviado "B", solo debe alternar entre la herramienta Pincel y la última herramienta seleccionada. ¡Espero que esto ayude!

    Hi jackamus Thanks for your report, this has already been logged against Affinity Designer, however I'm seeing similar results in the beta so I'll bump this thread with your report and inform our devs of this now!
  16. Leider ist dies derzeit in Affinity Designer nicht möglich, da kein Messerwerkzeug verfügbar ist. Es ist jedoch in unserer Roadmap, um zu einer späteren Version hinzugefügt zu werden, aber wir haben keine Eta dafür. In der Zwischenzeit können Sie mit dem Zuschneiden-Werkzeug Ihr Design an den gewünschten Stellen "ausschneiden". Gruppieren Sie alle Objekte, beschneiden Sie sie wie gewünscht, duplizieren Sie die Gruppe und invertieren Sie die Beschneidung. Ich habe unten ein kurzes Video dazu erstellt. Ich hoffe, das funktioniert für Ihre Designanforderungen. Group & crop.mp4
  17. Thanks for that Dave, if you're still having issues with the tool then I'd recommend resetting your software to default settings. 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.
  18. Reinstalling the program won't help unfortunately, could you please confirm what results you're seeing whilst using the clone brush and provide a screenshot of your app whilst using the brush, including the context toolbar? I've re-created the above GIF as a video, so you can pause and play it at your leisure. Please note you will need to Alt+Click on your image to set a source before you can use the tool.

  19. Could you please provide a screenshot of your batch processing screen?
  20. Hi TMX Photo, Welcome to the forums When batch processing, did you have 'Parallel Processing' ticked at the bottom of the dialog? We're aware of a current bug in Affinity Photo for Mojave users only that causes batch processing to freeze when Parallel Processing is set to on. If you try the batch process again and ensure this option is switched off, it should work correctly for you. The latest versions of our apps can be found at the below link - I suspect you are running the latest version, but this version is known to be bugged as I've explained above. We have since fixed this issue, however the fix is only available in our 1.7 beta currently. You are welcome to download and install the beta alongside your retail version from the following link if you wish! I hope this helps
  21. Hi Taufiq G, Welcome to the forums If you wish to create a Curve object with an image, this can be done using the Fill Tool. Create a quick shape or draw a Curve, then select the Fill Tool and change the Type in the context toolbar to Bitmap. This will open an Explorer window where you can select an image and then control it's Extend, Quality and Aspect Ratio Lock on the same context toolbar. This object should now be curves, full manipulatable using the node tool, but be 'filled' with your image. I'm not certain if this will create the desired effect in your document, as dutchshader has mentioned the perspective tools are found in Affinity Photo and not Designer. If you haven't yet tried it, you can download and install the 10 day free trial of Affinity Photo, open your .afdesign file in the app and use the perspective tools, then save the file and re-open it in Designer. I hope this helps!
  22. Thanks for that. My apologies, I should have included a dropbox link in my previous message, please find this below - this will upload the file directly to me and will be deleted once finished with https://www.dropbox.com/request/K7t3IxHHvvrsPASttp2C Can I also ask, what is the DPI of your document?
  23. Hi SLU, Welcome to the forums Sorry to hear you're having trouble. We'll need your .afdesign file to investigate this, could you please upload a copy of this file along with a screenshot showing your export settings (including the 'More' options)? Many thanks in advance.
  24. Hi Hicksdesign This isn't something we've heard of before, apologies. Could you possibly provide a copy of your .afdesign file (with the history saved) and a screen recording showing the issue - if it's possible to replicate, as I know you've mentioned it's seemingly random. These can be uploaded to the following link, as such they will not be made public: https://www.dropbox.com/request/PmUZE9PnyTYhKfFkUJv5 Many thanks in advance!
