  1. ah that its. I had rasterised and trimmed first I guess Thanks to all
  2. Just place the object then select the node tool. Tried as image, then rasterise and trim but I am missing how to apply the node tool - see uploaded file in my post above
  3. Not for me it doesn't. I did it again. Placed an image, clicked the node tool and it doesn't select. I then rasterised and trimmed it and the layer said pixel but again the node tool does nothing. Do I have to create a pixel layer in which to place it or do something to add nodes? To be clear I am trying to create a curved bottom edge to a rectangular image. attached is the simlest approach I am using to demo - just a placed image and cannot use the node tool
  4. I want to shape the bottom edge of an image. In CorelDraw I would convert a placed image to curves and use the node tool to pick each bottom corner and move up to give me a curved bottom edge. Doing the same in Designer doesn't work. Selecting the node tool allows no selection at all. Where have I gone wrong?
  5. I am photographing artwork to be uploaded for use on products such as duvet covers. The service (Red Bubble) says I need an image of 7632x6480px. My Sony A7rii maxes at 7952x5304px nearly there but wht the heck cameras are they expecting? Has anyone done photography for anything like this?
  6. You have made my wife very happy. Many thanks. I though it'd be something simple.
  7. I have two machine with Photo. Opening the same psd file on one shows differently to the other (my wife who want I am trying to teach). I have attached two screen shots. I open on my machine and I see Design (embedded document) with (mask) and (perspective) indented underneath. can select the embedded document to open it up. On the other machine with the same psd I see Design (pixel) and just (mask) underneath. Design does NOT open up. The problem is on a new installation but with the EXACT same file (not a copy) I can attach the psd if it helps but it is 274Mb. I suspect this is a difference in configuration on the new install.
  8. Interesting but I was hoping to get back to the (lost) original really which was just the black filled text, possibly trying different fill colors to match my background.
  9. I have a png of a signature with a transparent background. I want to fill-in the signature text but not sure where to start.
  10. It was as soon as the dialog was opened. But when I uninstalled BOTH apps and reinstalled, the problem was resolved. A bit drastic though as I have yet to reinstall the extras.
  11. I tried again, this time uninstalling both apps and restarting after each. It seems to be ok now. Fingers crossed Thanks for everybody who tried and succeded in helping
  12. >With a view to perhaps finding the cause;>Which OS are you on? Windows 10>Which Designer version are you using? 1.8.3 both designer and photo>Where are you trying to save too?Not just on saving, its on opening too. And mu usual downloads folder >Is this happening with one particular file or all files? No files at all just an empty instance and anything that open the file dialog. From scratch in Windows Exploere then Open by open with opens the file into either app but Save then isn't possible>Dose it happen with new files with new content? See aboveHave you tried a “Reset” of Designer?Or indeed a full uninstall of the app and then reinstall? (Though it’s a good idea before doing either of these to make sure you have a backup of the apps User folder which contains stuff like brushes etc… that you have added over time) full un and reinstall of photo or designer didn't help.
  13. OK checked and did that.... dropbox and gdrive both closed, Webroot off. Open photo, open dialog ... stuck.
  14. Can someone for serif PLEASE look into this. First it was designer that couldn't save now its photo too. It seems to be the file dialog that is causing the problem. Whenever I use the file open or save dialog the system hangs and I have to crash out of the app. I have rebooted. If I open designer or photo then try to open anything it hangs on the open dialog. I can "open with" but cannot save either as the file dialog hangs. I have other apps that seem to use the Windows 10 file dialog ok, its just affinity photo and designer. Such a pity, I love learning to use these apps but now I am stuck with lightroom 6. My photo.dmp file is too big to upload it seems so I have zipped it but at 686mb this is still too big as my internet is slow. fwiw the system error log entries for this error is below 24/04/2020 09:31 Application Hang The program Photo.exe version 1.8.3.641 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed.

Cab Guid: 0 If you want me to load the dump file I can do so overnight. I hope someone can look at this problem. fwiw it may be that the size of my dump files (4.8gb from photo and 2.6gb in designer may be an indicator of the problem?
  15. No I am clicking on the close window cross of the save dialog because its all I can click. As for how long I waited? I went to lunch - is that long enough? This happens on an almost empry file, such as your suggestion of file new and using a preset. it seems only a new design causes the issue saving as untitled.afdesign (can't try another name becasue thats where it hangs) but loading an existing design and saving as seems fine. But I have just done as you suggested and the dump file is 1.8gb perhaps that indicates the problem in itself? I won't upload it just yet. I have just looked at my system logs and this is logged at each of my saving failures "21/04/2020 13:34 Windows Error Reporting Fault bucket , type 0
