    Vector Lasso Selection

    Well, shucks! Maybe I should check here more often. I was just installing Scribus to do the work, but this will be better. Thanks for the quick reply.

    Vector Lasso Selection

    Has there been any development of such a tool yet? Or, can anyone recommend any freeware where I can open an EPS file and make a lasso selection. Thanx.

    PSD workflow

    Okay. Thanks for looking. Can we keep it as a feature request then please? In the meantime, I will learn more about using Photo.

    PSD workflow

    These are the options I have in Designer

    PSD workflow

    Hi MEB. Thanks for that. Unfortunately that only works in Affinity Photo and not in Designer (which I much prefer to work in).

    PSD workflow

    Please would it be possible to allow PSD files which are opened in Affinity Designer to be saved back out as a PSD file, rather than having to Export. This feature absence kills the workflow when using Affinity Designer with Reallusion's Cartoon Animator. Affinity Designer is fast becoming one of the External Editors of choice with Cartoon Animator, but without this simple feature it is very tempting to turn to a free editor like Krita, which carries out the same workflow flawlessly. Affinity Designer Workflow:- Cartoon Animator -> Affinity Designer (as PSD) -> Edit layered graphics -> Export PSD -> Find correct PSD file to save to -> Update in Cartoon Animator Krita / Photoshop/ etc. Workflow:- Cartoon Animator -> Krita (as PSD) -> edit layered graphics -> Save (automatically updates in Cartoon Animator).

    Change export defaults

    Same with Affinity Designer; the option to change default to Selection Without Background would be most useful - even if the programme just remembered what you last used.
  9. Problem now fixed thanks. Changed colour profile to SRGB and restarted both programs. Only able to fix thanks to this forum.
  10. And once again, I am afraid this problem has reared its ugly head yet again. In my case it was working as it should for ages, until today. All of a sudden my colours are not exporting correctly in either png or jpg. The only difference between today and that last time I used Affinity Designer is the latest Windows 10 October Update! I certainly agree with the original OP and MadByte that this program should just work. Gimp, Inkscape, all the freebies work out of the box, so to speak, and I expect a paid for program to do the same.
