  1. Hello eveyrone Hello Support First of all thank and congrats for the release of V2, it is really refreshing and life changing. But as of now, my only request for Affinity products (mostly AfPhoto and AfDesigner) would be to see OBJ file supported or Blender as plugin to the product, i mean create a new product from the ground to do 3D when one of the most popular software can be used (if possible) for me (and only me) it is not because illustrator does some 3D that Affinity have to absolutely be the same, so a possibility for teaming Blender + Affinity would be great. I don't know if it is doable but it would be great move that will expand the possibilities far higher than if you had to build one software or a set of tools and function from the ground. Thanks
  2. Bottles recently shared this, don't you think it is a beginning ? not the one expected but a just beginning
  3. Hello Team Hello Everyone Yes it has been long time since i wrote here, but today i realized while working on a project that i didn't knew how to Break a text into words/lines. I went to help file and found a quick how to ... but realized then when I break text into words or line using Shift+Return, it all become curves and non editable anymore. Is there a way to do that operation without changing the nature of text/object and keep editing it ? your help is welcome. Blessings
  4. On the fact of a great product I do trust Serif for the Affinity line of Products. Just one thing I personally hope is that, the Windows version of the app should work flawless or just as good as the Mac builds. Back in the time I owned a MacBook and that's where I discovered the Affinity products and it was super cool even though my Mac was old i could actually without a problem, then my Mac died and in my country it would cost me a liver if I had to buy another Mac, the simple thing to do was to go back to PC and window; then I was surprised to see that it wasn't clearly the same feeling at all So please @Patrick Connorand team, I'm not begging but just asking you to put some good work in place and make the windows version as good as the Mac version so wa can all enjoy the trip like equally I appreciate your work and respect what you guys do, you've been in the hard time when the pandemic was hitting the planet and you offered such a unique possibility to artist and even hobbyist to not go mad during the hard times, so thank you but ... forget us not
  5. Maybe, better preservation of geometry and less struggle when transfered to a 3D app. I've nothing against svg but it seem like .obj is much better in some cases
  6. Hello guys! is it possible to export project (vector) into OBJ file format instead of SVG so work can be done with ease on Apps like Blender, cinema 4D etc. Possible ? Planed ?
  7. Thanks I received not the regular email about that so, i didn't knew.
  8. is it me or i can't find this release "Photo" on the beta channel? is this a stable build ?
  9. Guys ! Just to say i'm against this call. As a Linux user and knowing how the ecosystem and mindset is at the moment in the global community i'd say we shouldn;t make such calls, instead we wish serif to loose money they can invest into making the already existing products better. No! it's a No. Serif should keep on following their own route and if one day it comes to pass by and join the Linux route then we all know. Instead we can ask serif to partner with inkscape and gimp team so together they can agree on developing a file format that make those opensource and well known apps to read/write projects files made by one or another with ease. Teaming on file format is much better and realistic at this moment building a total new line of products that may not survive in less or more than 5y Thanks
  10. Thanks to you @fde101 Well i'm aware of the isometric thing but if you see my suggestion with a bit of atention you'll notice the fact that i know it does exist as I do use it in some designs but as I said the video is like very impressive on how they made it work at Corel. It's a thing to have base functionality/function but it is something to make soft and easy to be handled or used by a total neophite but also the fact of making the current isometric tool as easy as the one on the video brings a lot of advantages as peoples of many skills will be enabled into a much faster and reactive way of work and they can focus even more on their creative job than trying to absolutely know the tool for hours and hours without finding the proper way to manage it. that was my point but yes I do appreciate your input here, it helps! Blessings
  11. Hello Everyone and the Dev. Team. 1st I'm not asking to Serif of any of team to copy and implement this as it is presented. 2nd I'm all good with what the Affinity line of products have to offer in its current state of release. But on the other hand taking this as example of indication of what Serif can enable on the Affinity product isn't a bad thing and many will surely get good profit of this. The Video talks by itself so describe my suggestion in a much better way than any words I can write here. CorelDraw 2021 - Draw in perspective
  12. @Sean P and the vector team many have asked for a new way to manage shadow on objects etc (myself included) so I propose that the vector Team investigate on Logoist by Synium software; it has an acceptable way of doing things when it comes to shadow (drop down, long shadow etc.) and maybe from there you can build something pretty and original. I'm enjoying current Beta phase a lot but I believe many have needs so even small implementation can and would help to be patient and tempted not to hop between apps. Help us Help you guys. Thanks and Blessings.
  13. Another inspiration for my OpenSource friends. Made with .9xx Beta of AfPhoto and AfDesigner Leave your comments to help me improve more. Thanks!
  14. Thanks to @Sean P @Chris B and @Mark Ingram for their strong support. Without you shipping builds that works, this would not be possible, entirely made with the recent .900 RC release of AfPhoto and AfDesigner. it works !
  15. Hello Guys ! Few more from my desk ... As always please leave me your comments and suggestions.
  16. Still have some hard time with light and reflections so I tested some new ways on this project. Affinity Designer + Photo + (Nik 3.3 and Luminar 4) I wanted to see what works the best as whole or just in 1 precise aspect of what I want then I decide the way I'll put things together. Let's go! A thumbnail for #OldTechBlocke a YouTuber who does cool #Linux contents 1st you'll see what he made (surely using Gimp 2.10.20/22) 2dn what I came up with (just a bit of reorganization and more colors in there) : Luminar 4 3rd the same design boosted with Nik Collection 3.3 Blessings !
  17. Just Before I leave for more job and some home stuffs, i'd like to share this other one, also made for a French Linux guy doing good works on YouTube. I'm still not that good at composition and colors but at least this is what was done. Check and revert for me to improve for the good of Design and Photography. Here also, I tested soe other tints variant. Blessings !
  18. Hello Everyone ! Was a bit far from this place but today I wish to share a quick job I made for a friend of mine who's a YouTuber on the Linux side. I made it because his recent video inspired me a lot and I wanted to test something new ... I mean some tints I had in mind. No more comment, time for you to check and choose. Notice I'm currently doing and shipping both lighter and darker tendencies of the same design to my requesters. Blessings !
  19. Hello Everyone Hello Support I'm enjoying the "Create palette from image/from document" functionality for years but always forget to send this suggestion. I believe it will be cool to have button somewhere on a tool that point to that internal tool/function. it is crucial to be able to create palettes from documents and from images, it can save enormous time and effort when one work offline but have some base of stock image that he can sample from but ... this functionality is buried into that hamburger button which make it not easy to find or even to guess it does exist (for new users coming to affinity photo) but if a button on the top bar is there to put an emphasis on that and remind the user it is possible just by first look then more of it can be done. On the other side, i think create palette from document/image is almost playing the same role and should be grouped as one unified tool/functionality which will make it even more appealing and useful. I know there still some missing stuff to that tool/function but I believe by putting it upfront and allowing people to make good use of it, many will then start submitting ideas for changes and improvements but First ... group it and make a button for it Please ! This can benefit the entire suite as they have that same tool/function available Beta cycle is a good season/time to bring such changes so it can be tested properly. Blessings !
  20. 1- Non Destructiveness 2- Better and understandable Adjustments 3- More intelligent and Less agressive Tone Mapping filters/functions 4- more comprehensive functions on the develop persona (which here tends to be confusing in regard to what is available on the Develop Persona 5- Save with History to become default (but must allow that function to be disabled if needed) 6- Crop tool shouldn't crop the entire canvas or Art but act like the crop tool in designer or allow for crop on precise layer 7- Affinity Designer is capable of creating both vector and pixel layers why not Affinity photo ? When it is possible to move from one to another to do things in a more precise way. This is a short list of what I can talk about right now.
  21. Thank you my friend by ease of use I actually mean the Develop Persona should come closer to what we have in other modern apps like On1 Photo Raw, PhotoLab 4 etc. something that's less technical but opens the door to pure creativity. After all, Photography, Photo-Retouch etc. all that is Art and the guy working with the tools, need to actually be more focus on making their Art better but with ease and not spending like a day for a photo. The recent improvements brought to PS by Adobe have enabled their userbase to do more and much better in less which can be proven by growing amount of piece of Art on behance but also a constantly increase of their tutorial production on YouTube. The Affinity line of product can achieve the same without scarifying this or that but shaping things and making them even better. Even the guys at Luminar understood that and now about to deliver the one killing app they never imagined they could ship to us.
  22. Hello Everyone Hello Team I gladly spent the last few days working on projects and realized how easy and fluid Affinity photo have become but ... yes because can't move forward without a request for improvement. I'd like to notify that the Develop Persona is something quite complicated from noobs perspective which should be revamped and made more intuitive for all levels of knowledges. What's there and the way it works is cool but more for Pro/Skilled people to work with (same case for the Tone mapping persona) to my defense on this, I used Luminar for like every projects I needed to finish which is actually a non-sens. Looking at Photoshop with their improvement made on Camera Raw, I believe this is a sort of path to bring on the Develop Persona of Affinity Photo. Making things easy to grad and to do without having to worry "what app will color grade with ease while making me save a big amount of time and money etc." I know it's possible and the Team behing the Photo app can make it happen with the ease of a click for our pleasure and joy. Something mid-ground between Camera Raw and Luminar will be welcomed. Hope I posted in the roght place without creating a duplica of request that aleready existed years/months ago. Blessings !
