  2. Hi Can I download just the update from the site rather than through the pop up when I open Affinity Photo for Mac? Have tied to update 7 times this morning and it has timed out every time, it then wants to start again from scratch. Tried downloading 1.81 directly, but same problem? Not everyone has super fast broadband and it is a 50 min download here. My internet connection is fine, but slow...have downloaded other updates this morning with no problem.
  3. Hi there, I’m trying to use the mixer brush in a different layer than my original photo and so far it’s not working. I’d like to know if I’d be able to this or not. I want the painting version of my photograph to be in a different layer. So what I do is: I duplicate the original photo layer and in between the 2 layers I create a new pixel layer. I then decrease the fill of the top layer of my original photo to 1%. Then I merge it down with the pixel layer I created. The other original layer of my photo is moved up and opacity decreased, so I can see what I’m painting. I set the primary colour to none, so the mixer brush is clean all the time in order to use the colours of my original photo. I then check the brush to be wet. When I paint to this merged down layer (1% fill original photo + new pixel layer) nothing happens. There are pixels in the layer and the brush is not getting them. Can anyone give an insight on this? Thanking in advance!
  4. Below is my list of written tutorials I have done over the years. The first few were done using early versions of Affinity programs but they should still be ok. Some menus may have changed or tools look different but the basics are the same. Also most are for Affinity Photo, but some could be done in Designer. Plus the "Beginners Look at Affinity Photo" ones will pretty much be the same in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs have same basic functions.

It may work the same on iPad version but I don’t own one so can’t confirm that it will. It looks at what Styles are, how to make some Gradient Styles and some Styles made from images. Then how to Export and Import your newly made Styles. After that I do a basic overview of a couple of video tutorials I have made in the past. Using the Mirror Filter and the Equation filter to make new images, to then make Styles from. Lastly, another overview of a recent video tutorial, which looks at using the Vector Crop Tool in Affinity Designer to grab sections of an image to then make Styles from. The end of this PDF tutorial has interactive links to all the video tutorials and links to the downloads of all the Styles I have made in these video and written tutorials. https://www.dropbox.com/s/82szaatnflaw8fk/ACTIV8-issue7-Styles.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 8 – Affinity Photo – Make Sketch Image With Just The Channel Mixer A while ago I made an Affinity Photo video tutorial about making a sketch image just using the Channel Mixer adjustment. I thought I’d up-date it slightly in this written tutorial, which can be done in Affinity Photo, Designer or Publisher. https://www.dropbox.com/s/6etmt3am6ljprwn/ACTIV8-issue7-ChannelMixer-Sketch.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 8a – Affinity Software – 4 Creative yet simple ways to use Blend Modes This is a written tutorial update of a video tutorial I did in Feb 2018. They are fairly basic edits and will work best with an image that has a white background. So, I will use one I got from Pixabay, as are the other images used. Links to the video and image are in the written tutorial. The video was done in Affinity Photo but this will be done in Affinity Designer but I see no reason why it can’t also be done in Publisher. https://www.dropbox.com/s/sluebvjl86nuk8e/ACTIV8-issue8-Four-Uses-for-Blend-Modes.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 9 – A Beginners Look At Affinity Photo part 1 Looking at opening images and saving your edits. Plus, file formats also a look at the Layers Panel and Colour selection Although tutorial is for Affinity Photo all will work pretty much the same in Affinity Designer And Publisher https://www.dropbox.com/s/7ztaxn4siom7evd/ACTIV8-issue9-Beginners%20Look%20at%20Affinity%20Photo%20pt01.pdf?dl=0 Activ8 issue 10 – A Beginners Look At Affinity Photo part 2 Looking at opening and setting up a new document other than an image. The Brush Tool and changing the Brush Tips. Then looking at the different types of Pixel and Vector layers you can make. Layer Masks and their use. Plus, a quick look at Text and Shape layers and the Glyph Browser. As with part 1, most (if not all) of the information in this tutorial will work just as well in Affinity Designer and Publisher as all 3 programs are so similar. https://www.dropbox.com/s/kourodnfojwq26l/ACTIV8-issue10-Beginners%20Look%20at%20Affinity%20Photo-pt02.pdf?dl=0
  5. This bug was also in Version 1.8.2, but in the actual version 1.8.3 on my iPad Air 3 (2019) (iPad OS 13.4) it is still there. I cannot export my Affinity projects, the file size of the export is 0.00 bytes and I cannot save the file because there is no file. This error only occurs when I try to export with a higher resolution than for example 7000 pixels height. It seams like the export fails when the exported project is larger than ... megapixels. When I choose a smaller resolution, I works.
  6. Hi guys! Coming from Photoshop, I wonder if is it possible to resize canvas using layer (or selection) boundaries. In PS, you can load the selection from a layer that contains some transparent areas and than you can automatically "clip" the canvas to layer visible (selected) contents. See image for a sample. Is there some way to achieve the same result in AP? Thanks a lot! 🙂
  7. Hi There: Just downloaded/installed Affinity 1.8.3. In Photo, if I go to the Crop tool, choose unconstrained and set a custom crop, then go to the Presets Manager, Create Preset is grayed out. Mike.

  9. Hello. I would like to propose a feature that would give the user an option to male the blue line guide in pen tool be hidden and only the actual stroke be visible. This feauture would be useful on siuations where the stroke width is very thin like 1px to 5px. The proposed feature will look something like this with the only difference where the blue line guide is not visible.
  10. Hey all I've been working on a comic for the last few months and now that I'm posting episodes on Webtoon I figured I'd share it with the community here. The panel in the post is from what'll be episode 11 or 12. I'm really happy with how this one turned out. I do all the inking and most of the flatting in Procreate on my iPad Pro (just upgraded from the 9.7 inch Pro to the new 12.9!) then I bring it into Affinity Photo and do all the colour work. Sometimes I'll make a few vector objects in Designer. I've been doing all the lettering in Publisher. You can check out the webtoon link at https://www.webtoons.com/en/challenge/thicc-skinned/list?title_no=404235 and I'd love if you'd subscribe
  11. With its interacting tools for drawing/painting, page layout etc., I’d love to replace Clip Studio with the Affinity suite for comics. I’ve given Clip Studio several tries, but I’m a graphic designer in my main job, hence used to Adobe apps (and Quark before that), and using Clip Studio only ever goes well for an hour at most before HULK SMASH CINTIQ … Two things (mainly) I’d love to see: 1 – 1-bit support. I know, I know, this has been discussed here at length: Apparently there’s not too much hope for 1-bit editing, but maybe at least for export? (For those who don’t know why not use normal grayscale mode – 8/16-bit grayscale images are rasterized in print, 1-bit images are not.) 2 – Publisher could use a (really) simple drawing tool. Why? Because Affinity Photo only works on one spread page at a time. (Alternatively, this restriction could be lifted.) It would be handy to sketch rough thumbnails while zoomed out in Publisher, with ten, twelve pages in view; then later zoom in on single spreads and do the finer sketching in Photo.
  12. How to crop an image on a selected layer - Affinity Photo v1.3.4? It seems the Crop Tool is a global function. How would I accurately crop an image in a selected layer?
  13. Hi all, I was wondering on MacOS what happens with the update installation files with the automatic update after they are installed? Are they automatically deleted or they remain on the hard drive? Thanks
  14. Hi, What Affinity products is best for Web Develoeprs? Also can Affinity Publisher do what Sketch can do like the Hero/Banner background image of https://fontawesome.com/ assuming I already the icons?
  15. Whenever I try to update Affinity Photo 1.8.0 on Windows 10 to 1.8.2 or 1.8.3 Setup starts normal but ends with the message: "Error with Setup" ("Fehler beim Setup"). This even happens with a clean install. In this case Setup creates the folder 'c:\program files\Affinity\Photo', deletes it right away and ends itself with the error message. Update: I started affinity-photo-1.8.2 and installed it to another folder ('D:\Programme\Photo') and it worked. Then I started affinity-photo-1.8.3 on this very folder and again it failed with the same Error-Message again. Fun fact: When I retry to install into this now empty folder D:\Programme it fails again. So, for now I can't install to 'c:\program files\Affinity\Photo' nor to 'D:\Programme\Photo'.

  17. Version: I did not have this problem with previous versions. It seems to be a problem with Wacom Tablet. Not related to a specific action. Last time it occured with Mesh Warp. At a certain point Afiinity Photo "freezes". Everything still seems the same, but nothing happens anymore. Try to save the file, but Affinity does not respond. Misty screen. The only possible action is to force ending Afiinity. And yes: work lost! Please do something about this. Kind regards, Ben
  18. To stave off the boredom, I'm working from home. even though I've been retired for nearly four years! I saw a post on Facebook the other day, which I'm pretty sure was 'photoshopped' as it looked too good and the 'artist' was kneeling on his artwork. It was well made, but of course, I thought 'I can do that!' and I have. Credits: girl by Analise Benevides on Unsplash, pavement by Mabel Amber from Pixabay, Girl with pearl earring by Vermeer from Wikipedia, pastels from Google. Good fun -- I shall try another one in the near future.
  19. Freehand pen can't take screenshot,Big problem after update, the brush will shake on the desktop during work I don't understand why the problem with each update is always so bad
  20. Installed Photoshop-compatible 64-bit plugins can be made available to Affinity Photo to extend the range of effects available to you.

  21. Hi, I'm currently running 1.7.3 and can see that there is an update from this version to 1.8.x The App store shows an update but after clicking on Update, nothing happens and the Update button simply reverts to UPDATE. Occasionally, this changes to OPEN but all that does is launch my current version. I see no option to check for updates so am struggling to get the latest update.
  22. Hello, I recently noticed that version 1.8 presents a user interface that is difficult to understand about (new) document formats. Here I present a proposal about the user interface and would like your feedback. Thanks Thanks
