  1. Not sure when this was added. Is it just to export a batch of photos in a given format? What about applying the same filter or adjustment to all the photos? also cannot find any macro as I think happens on the Mac version thanks
  2. Ive noticed a lag using paintbrush on the iPad version. Not sure if related but definitely noticeable
  3. I never realised I could draw a line to align and straighten the photo. interestingly the iphone photo app does all of this in one go. they seem to have implemented a macro that aligns to the main lines visibile and then straightens and crops accordingly. impressive.
  4. Hello I’d like to know if someone can tell me how to rotate a photo but within the constraint of the original canvas? in other words I’m trying to replicate what the iPhone does in the photo rotate/align tool, where you want to simply make straight a photo that’s slightly tilted, sometimes only by a few degrees, but keeping the original ratio in the background thanks
  5. Thanks. It does sound a lot of work whereas said feature on iOS photos does rotate and crop in one go.. quite neat. Anyway I think the best way I found is to use the rotate command under develop persona and then crop if needed. More laborious but I get there
  6. Sorry if this has been asked before about but after seeing that now Loupedeck supports Final Cut Pro X I was wondering if affinity photo will be next? I really hope so
  7. sorry for the basic question but I have drawn a few straight lines. how do I move them without transforming them? also is there a way to space parallel lines evenly? I need to build a chord chart page so I need to make sure all lines are equally spaced thanks! Fed
  8. how do I lock the rectangle on iPad?
  9. will try this now thanks! I am on the fence for buying Designer for Mac, after having AP for mac/iPad and Designer for iPad (all of whichk I like every day more) I have to say there are quite a few extra functions of A.Photo mac vs Ipad but sometimes you just can't beat the immediacy of using the iPad..
  10. well I would like them to give me options to space/distribute vs specific items. say I have a rectangle or square shape, and I add some parallel lines within that square, I would like to be able to space the lines taking the boundaries of that square into account... sorry not sure I explained it too well...
  11. thanks Alfred. it's just that moving with the iPad is a bit tricky. learning bit by bit.... also the spacing options aren't always doing what I would like but it's ok!
  12. I just always use the export function (not the persona) both on the iPad and Mac, and, for Ipad I actually go for the handy "share" option to mail the photo or share it even more quickly... what is the export persona for? thanks
  13. thanks - I just don't ever need to use it why I asked
  14. Hello I’ve been just shooting some photographs of the amazing David Gilmour‘s guitar collection and I was wondering if after editing and adding effects to one photo (on affinity photo) I can just copy the settings and apply them to a batch of others? Thanks
  15. Hi guys I was just are using some presents I made for some adjustments and I noticed that, if you create a preset, the adjustment list previews the last preset you created although if you do apply it from the main list, it instead defaults to the standard preset. you need to manually going to the submenu to select that specific preset you created. Is there a workaround so you can just apply the preset you chose and preview, straight away? in other words a way to select a preset you created as the default for that adjustment not sure why the preview gets updated but not the actual preset unless you go fish it up. its a bit confusing like this

    how to change color of a layer?

    that's a great idea thanks
  17. hello guys. I may miss something, but how do I change the colour of a layer? to change the colour of something in a photo I add a pixel layer on top of a photo, use the brush to paint some colour then change the blend mode to "hue" or "colour" and it sort of works most time for items (like a car, with good contrast). but what if I then want to change the colour of what I painted without having to repaint? I cannot seem to select the pixel layer and simply change colour- rasterizing doesn't help. thanks

    how to change color of a layer?

    thank you so much - still getting confused. I added a fill layer and reduced the opacity and then was able to change the colour of my shades. looked incredibly realistic!

    how to change color of a layer?

    thanks but why can't i just change the previous colour without making a new selection?
  20. I’m trying to follow this video made with affinity photo desktop but I cannot seem to do on my iPad what he does at 6:15 onwards with the selection of the text layer and creation of that mask how do I select the text like that? Cheers fed
  21. Thanks so much for taking the time!
  22. thanks but your method doesn't seem to achieve what I see in the video, where he creates a selection out of the text only, and then creates a mask with it. doesn't seem to work the way you describe it
  23. an honest question. snapping (and delete) are easily accessible from the main tool interface on Designer... why not on Photo? I use and switch snapping all the time and could use without having to constantly go on Document Properties> Snapping>enable....
