  1. A little inspiration for Serif from good old Adobe 🙂
  2. I had this problem on an iPhone I once owned. Not hardware related. iOS bug. Happened from time to time. But I see nothing on that screenshot.
  3. Deconvolution is in use in "Smart Sharpen" and "Shake reduction" in Photoshop. I believe Unsharp Mask in Photo is plain vanilla unsharp mask. In Photoshop deconvolution is beautifully implemented in "Smart Sharpen" - the user interface doesn't bother you with complex settings (Shadows and highlight settings are hidden by default) and the it delivers stellar results. I use it all the time for all kinds of sharpening. I get much more natural sharpening using it. Well, it won't matter much to the world with all the over-sharpening going on out there 🙂
  4. The coverage workaround works - but is a terrible workaround to apply to all objects in complex drawings. In practice impossible unless you have several hours to spare. Further you have to know about it - only for forum users that are so blessed that they cross posts mentioning it. How many percent of the Affinity customers does that amount to... 2% ? Reminds me of something... oh yes 🙂
  5. A per-object option like this should also be considered by Serif - I like it: http://rwillustrator.blogspot.com/2007/03/to-anti-alias-or-not-to-anti-alias-that.html
  6. Root cause found I believe. Photo filters inserted in Photo but in a Designer file severely degrades performance at deep zoom levels in Designer.
  7. Ahoy @MEB Great, thanks. I observed it on a rather large drawing - I uploaded a minimal cutout of it here. Initially and confused I found it hard to figure out precisely was affected by these filters until I made this simpler version. Object in some group are spread out over the entire poster so it was a little confusing at first. Enable or disable the filters inside the group clearly is the root cause. You can fiddle with the filters in the Layer MEB. Just one of whichever of these filters from Photo trigger the blurring of outlines of objects inside the group. I think it is just as simple as that. 🙂 The filters didn't add the partly realism to vector objects I was looking for so I will just replace them with regular blur for now. Regards 🙂 EDIT: These filters caused the severe performance hit when zooming deeply into my drawing on single objects and editing single nodes I reported elsewhere. blur vs no blur.afdesign
  8. The problem is not the PNG files. They are fine. The issue must be the website or/and browser. The file had the right size and DPI with smoothly rendered edges as bitmap. Some of us even saw it correctly in the same setting in Treespring. Some don't. I believe the site or your browser fails to render a correct preview of the file. I consistently get perfect previews in Teespring using Google Chrome on Windows 10 Professional with files from Affinty with anti-alias or files from CorelDRAW with anti-alias turned off.
  9. Ah, yes there is a mix of questions in this thread. I responded to the questions about possible low quality in PNG. Turning the anti-alias off is not possible as an option anywhere, it seems. In Photoshop (but not Photo/AD) I can import the PDF version with this setting disabled: Then I export the file as PNG with "nearest neighbor" selected. A more satisfying dialog than this one: Yes, but anti-alias is a screen-smoothening technology not required when printing; high-res images does the trick. It puzzles me why Serif doesn't support it after all those years in the business. Professional programs (programs that earned the title) do support disabling anti-alias, here is the export dialog in CorelDRAW:
  10. My upload of the same file looks great in Teespring. No matter how I export your file it looks great. If I export it as vector in PDF, import it in Photoshop (which renders it at the correct size and DPI) and export it to PNG can't tell the difference between that PNG and the ones from Affinity. Nice round corners. Two examples attached. First "Bicubic" from Affinity Second "PS_flat" from Photoshop CC 2020 What browser did you use to design your t-shirts in Teespring? And could I see one of the files that did looked wrong on that site?
  11. Oh, you did post it earlier, sorry. Allright, I will see for myself later today and compare on my work machine with output from Adobe Illustrator and CorelDRAW as well.
