  1. I have a bunch of images (let's say 3120x1440) and I need to crop a section within them. In some of them need to crop more than one "part" (let's say 480x680px) and save as individual file, and sometimes these "parts" are in different sizes (let's say 320x890, 240x60, etc.). I tried to use the Preset in the crop tool but what it does is create a crop-box in the correct shape and correct aspect-ratio but not the correct pixel size. Is there a way I can load a shape in the exact size I need so that I simply need to position it onto the current image rather than having to manually enter the pixel size all the time?
  2. there is no possiblity use swatches in gradients? and way when i change swatch also gradients change. Also gradient it seems cannot be global?
  3. Attached is Revision A of my Tutorial on how I process and edit color negatives using Affinity Photo. My original tutorial generally resulted in good conversions, but sometimes the deep shadows took on a blue cast. That could be corrected during editing, but was not ideal. Rev. A corrects this problem entirely and results in better, more accurate conversions. The process in Rev A is different, but is simpler to implement. I do not own a dedicated slide scanner, negative conversion software or plug-ins. Instead of scanning, I used my DSLR, a 100mm macro lens and an LED backlight to photograph color negatives, which I brought into Affinity Photo in their original negative form. I shot RAW, but full sized TIFFs work equally well. The approach described in this tutorial works with any brand color negative film and preserves the color relationships in the original negative. No special negative film profiles are required. This method works well for me and I hope others find it useful. There are many ways to process color negatives and convert them to positives, but this works reliably for me and yields an image that is easy to edit.

  4. I have 2 copies of a newspaper article, one day apart. Both copies are damaged (the originals were damaged then scanned). Each copy from separate dates were identical articles, but each has different bits of text illegible. I'd like to overlay day 2 copy over day 1 copy to see if I can get more info out of both images. Besides being faint, the copies are a bit out of square, so I have to make them un-wavy as well. I'm a newb with Photo. All I can figure is I need to make layers, and put each version into a separate layer, but after that??? Or is it like taking the two images and doing some sort of HDR transform?? I have no idea. Should I post both of the images, so you can see what I'm trying to do? Thanks!
  5. I have lived in the city all my life, but sometimes I really want to escape from the city. But I can't do that yet so I just expressed it into a photo manipulation speed art. "Escape from the City" speed art : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXrpXbm5h4I

  7. Hello, just here the pleasure of sharing graphic covers of 33LP vinyl covers of some of my favorite musicians in the form of high resolution wallpapers (5120 x 2800 px) saved in .PNG... I hope you will like it... 😉
  8. According to Affinity Photo 2 Help but once the pinned document has been opened, the pin gets removed, making pinning pretty useless. Affinity Photo v 2.10 (but I've seen this behaviour before) on Windows 10 Recent Pinned Docs.mp4
  9. ....Swirling sands, driven by gentle winds slowly clear to reveal a Metropolis. The research team stop to take a moment and absorb the magnificent sight ahead of them.
  10. So, I've noticed in Affinity Photo 2 that when the color picker selects a color it will select a different hue, resulting in inconsistent coloring. I've got a video below, but basically, by sampling one color then sampling the sampled color I can get a rainbow. The project file is included if you want to check it out. Thanks!

  11. Collage of a moon in a rose, created with Affinity Photo.
  12. This photo manipulation artwork is "Mars Rising". I saw a video of Mars Rising with the moon and it was very impressive. So I made an image by changing the order of the moon and Mars. "Mars Rising" speed art : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfo9R5yz-7E
  13. Hi there, Affinity photo 2 is for some reason is not handeling the RAW "lossless comp" files properly. It seems that the lens correction is inverted and it makes blackbars around the image. When I use a compressed RAW image it is working properly. I tried resetting settings affinity photo 2 (no changes) Opend in ACDSee working properly Opend in Sony Imaging Edge working properly Opend in Windows photo working properly Test raw images added and jpegs all directly from the camera Specs: Camera: Sony A6700 All lenses when RAW compression setting is in "lossless comp" PC: Windows 11 32 gb ram Nvidea geforce RTX 4090 Affinity photo DSC02821 compressed.ARW DSC02822 lossless comp.ARW

  16. Hi, I wanted to edit this raw photo (See attachement) in Affinity Photo, when i noticed that these clouds looked quite ugly. Their highlight falloff is steep and the colours shift towards orange. I tried various adjustments in the "Develop" persona (Exposure, highlights/shadows, tone curves), but i did not manage to get rid of it. Because i wanted to make sure it was not an issue with the raw file itself, i opened in two other tools, Lightroom Classic and Canon's free, in-house raw developer, Digital Photo professional 4. The two other tools handle this case visibly better. Why is that? And how can i get the same results in Affinity Photo? IMG_0426.CR3
  17. When chosing SVG the Spine JSON files generated by Affinity are corrupt. [edit] When chosing JPG the Spine JSON file will not even be created (see next post)! TLDR; When chosing to export SVG-files the Spine JSON batch exporter doesn't work as supposed to; no x, y, width and height values are written for the assets to the json. This not only makes the Spine JSON corrupt, but even as a plain JSON it is now corrupt as format and so can't be read by JSON parsers. I understand the Spine editor itself cannot handle SVG files (yet), but other applications using the format can, so there is no reason to limit this output to raster only. Also I recently published an importer script for Moho animation software which uses this Spine JSON output to automatically import assets from Affinity into Moho via the Spine JSON Format. I am working on support for vectorgraphics too in order to import vector graphics from Affinity into Moho with the script, but because of this issue that currently isn't possible unfortunately. All measurement data luckily is already known by the Affinity software, so could this please get a fix? That would be awesome! Thanks in advance!
  18. 3-4 Years ago my Nephew and I decided it would be funny to create an animated series based on some weird cockroach drawings he did as a child that he called 'COCs'😅. We came up with some characters and story lines and the name C.O.C SQUAD (Combat Orientated Cockroaches). It's based on early 90s action movies and cartoons and went through quite a few different art styles and approaches until we found what worked. The movies Showdown In Little Tokyo and Hard Target were particularly influential. The characters were designed in Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. There were then exported to various pieces of animation software. We recently launched a Kickstarter to try and get some funding to finish the first episode in a reasonable amount of time (It's half done). I would love to know what you guys think of it.

  19. Hi everyone, I'm proud to share this dark fantasy novel made with AI images and reworked with Affinity Photo. I hope you enjoy the work. https://youtu.be/YUIBjkCj7HU?si=rugHqdLLfi7Xnnhz link to youtube from image too Let me know your impression!
  20. I found some settings that have improved performance on my MacBook Pro, so I thought I'd share them in case it may be of help to someone else. I know computer configurations vary a lot, but it may be worth a try. This is with Affinity Photo v2.2.1. I have a 15 inch, 2017 MacBookPro, 16GB RAM, an Intel HD Graphics 630 with 1536 MB Metal 3, and an AMD Radeon Pro 560 with 4GB Metal 3, running Ventura 13.6.1. It is not a particularly fast or powerful machine, but it worked fine for quite a while. I'm not sure when I started having problems (sorry), but I think it may have started with v2.2. Performance has gradually gotten slower as the day progresses. Memory Pressure started out very low when the program first opened (single digits), but as I edited and closed more files during the day, Memory Pressure crept higher and performance began to suffer badly. Memory Pressure gradually climbed higher than 100% at times, and Memory Efficiency plummeted at the same time. Performance got so bad, I was forced to close the program and restart it multiple times per day if I wanted reasonable performance. At least on my computer, I found the setting that "seemed" to be causing much or all of the slowdown. The key on my system is to "Use Only Integrated GPU" for Display", as highlighted in Red in the attached screenshot. I'm still Enabling Metal Compute Acceleration, which uses both GPUs for computation. My RAM Usage Limit is set to 9500 MB, which is more than half of installed RAM of 16 GB, and higher than I've seen recommended in a few posts, but it seems to be working fine and performance is good now. As the day progresses, I no longer see slowdowns which cause me to restart Affinity Photo, and Memory Pressure stays well below 100%. Hope it helps somebody out there who has similar performance issues.
  21. I have made 10 free tone mapping presets. I have not seen any tone mapping presets for affinity photo so I made some for anybody who might want them. Of course they will not all work with every photo like all presets but I hope someone finds them useful : ) To upload them just click on the zip. file, then in the tone mapping persona on the presets menu; click "Import Presets", Enjoy! Thanks! Hanan Edwards Presets.zip

  24. About The Box Set is hundreds of vector and raster brushes made for Affinity Photo & Designer. Each brush was handmade using real materials scanned at high resolutions and crafted to simulate real media. I wanted the origin of the brushes to have a heritage of the materials they are simulating. Scanning pools of watercolor, swatches of paint, and stipples of charcoal contributed to creating brushes with the same idiosyncratic material magic. My only request is that you take these brushes, with their clever names, as suggestions. They work superbly out of the box, but I strongly encourage you to adjust the sliders, rearrange or remove the textures, and discover how they can suit your hand(s). Make. Discover. Repeat. Cheers and happy art making, -Jef (WREN) RASTER BRUSHES For use in Affinity Photo and Designer. The blending brush in the Oil Set is the only one exclusive to Affinity Photo. DRAFTING INK OIL Oil Brush Dynamics Most oil brushes have blending built into pen pressure. With a single brush and hue you can adjust the luminosity of the stroke- giving it an oily blend. The Brush's color in the example above is the color of the background. A normal pressure gives you the hue without any lightening or darkening.
