  1. Do any of the current Affinity products provide a mechanism for extracting metadata from tiff/jpeg files that can then be used to generate captions or other text objects? The old Lightroom, for example, had some support for extracting metadata from images and using that data to format captions ... this was useful for creating slideshows and generating captions for books. Perhaps this feature is available in some other Affinity Product (Designer)? Thanks
  2. Hi, We are going to edit a photo from the ‘Botanical theatre’ series I took and posted on Instagram. This walk-through is created in Affinity photo for iPad but if you have a desktop version please give it a try. I think it shouldn’t differ so much. flower in Vysehrad by miresk -Original (download here) As I was reviewing the photos I got an idea to create something saturnine :) According to Merriam-Webster dictionary there are a few meanings. One of them is the following: Here is a result after a few edits that we are going to make together. By the way, did you know that Saturn’s rings are made mostly of chunks of ice? Brrr..I think that definition above could work for this image. Result 1. Perspective A photo we work with has a grid on the wall. As a first step let’s change the perspective of this photo to create a bending wall effect. Something that looks like if we were inside a well. Click the three dots to expand the menu and select Projections -> Equirectangular Projection. Move around the photo until you are happy with a perspective. We want one flower to stand out in the final composition so keep that in mind. 2. Tracing with pen tool Now after we applied the projection we can use the pen tool to select a few tiles on a wall. We will later use them as windows that we can look through. Select Pen tool and click from one corner of a tile to another creating the lines until you close the first point. TIP: Select Edit Mode (1st icon from left at the bottom of the screen) to quickly adjust the nodes and curves. After you trace the lines Use fill (for example white) to see what you have already traced. 3. Download space images There is a cool feature called Stock where you can browse images available to download and use them in your work. I wrote ‘saturn’ in the search bar and found a photo of space I liked. Then I switched to Pixabay service and downloaded an image of Saturn planet. Stock images 4. Rasterise the layers We can hide the downloaded images for now as we are going to rasterise the vector layers created with pen tool from step 2. Select a layer, click on the 2nd icon from left top in Layers panel and select Rasterise. Do this step for each vector layer (white squares). If you know how to rasterise several selected layers at once let me know please 5. Merge selected layers and mask In this step we are going to select all pixel layers we rasterised. On iPad version of Affinity Photo you can do it by swiping a layer for example from left to right. When they are all selected, go to menu options as in previous step and click Merge Selected. We will get 1 layer from the objects we traced with the pen tool. Grab this layer and drag it onto a thumbnail of the space photo as displayed below. This will effectively create a mask, and we can look through the windows to universe. 6. Clean up the scene with the erase brush tool Bring the opacity of the universe background down and zoom in to parts where the flowers intervene. Erase these parts of the mask so the leaves can shine in the moonlight 7. Making it more saturnine We are almost done. It’s looking pretty good but Saturn is still missing so let’s make it visible and move it to top in the layers panel. I placed it at the top so it’s nicely aligned with the grid, rotated it slightly and erased the black parts of the image so only the planet itself is visible. Then I applied the Darker Colour layer mode which made some segments of the image noisy. 8. Final tweaks in Develop mode Select the background photo (wall) and go to Develop mode (lens icon at the top). There we can adjust many things like curves, brightness, colors etc. but I adjusted only Vignette effect to make the corners darker so the flower stands out a bit more in our final composition. And that’s it. I would like to see your version so please feel free to share it. Many thanks for reading!

  5. As a recent convert to Affinity I've been going through my difficult images folder. The best I've done with this one so far. It was taken from a boat so I was a bit restricted for time and what I could do with the composition.
  6. Using Affinity Photo 1.8.6 on a fully updated Intel iMac running Mac OS 10.15.7 (19H15), I have the following major frustration, when coming from Photoshop: One of the "holy grails" of using Photoshop is that you can switch to "move mode" allowing you to select layers and move stuff around freely just by holding the command key on a Mac (control key on a PC). Sadly this doesn't seem to work on Affinity Photo, or work reliably, and I am forced to hit V or select the Move tool manually. Considering the move tool is mostly used as a "click to select other layers" tool, and considering that I do this perhaps more than any other thing when working with an image, we'd really like to get "command + click = select layer and move always" to become a thing in AP. In. my example, I have various layers and am moving them around, organizing them into whatever final layout I need. I need to easily select the layer without de-selecting the tool I'm using (brush, eraser, whatever). But I have to type V and move into Move mode before I can do these selections. This is one of the biggest frustrations coming from Photoshop. (Yes, I know AP is not Photoshop and I shouldn't want it to be, but I've got 30+ years of muscle memory using Photoshop and it will be to the benefit of Affinity Photo if more users can easily move over and work in the way they're accustomed.)

  11. Hello, what would be the best way to remove alpha channel pixels from a layer or make them fully opaque? In case I'm not making sense, here's an example: I add some red background and make a stroke with the brush over it with a green color, there's going to be red pixels of the background, green pixels of the brush and pixels that are green with alpha channel - how could I remove those with alpha channel or make them fully opaque? Both GIMP and Photoshop have ways of doing this for whole document, layer or selection, I'm curious how one would do this in Affinity Photo, or even Affinity Designer. I could provide an example if needed. Thanks!
  12. Hello Affinity, When I first extricated myself from Adobe Photoshop, I purchased Affinity Photo from the App Store on my iMac. Photo has been working well and updating appropriately. Both Publisher and Designer were purchased directly from Affinity. Not long ago, Publisher and Designer asked if I wanted to update upon opening and both now reside at v1.8.6. I realize that my purchase from the App Store for Photo requires getting my updates from them. However, Photo will only update to 1.8.4. I've even tried downloading the app again, but only installs 1.8.4. Call me anal, but I like to follow both Apple's advice, as well as Affinity's advice. 1.8.6 across the board should be easy. Any advice? Wolf
  13. Hi there!, Could somebody help me please, I've tried messing around with the settings on the brush tool to get tappered lines. I use a mouse to draw and when I do in affinity photo I get this; but When I draw in "Fire Alpaca" I get this; In fire alpaca I have, stablizer set to 38 and have "Force pressure on both ends" checked. What do I have to change to get the tapered effect in photo? I've changed the settings to this but still no luck; Please could someone help
  14. I am color blind, green blindness. Therefore, it is sometimes a guess if the color in a photo is accurate. Does anyone know if Affinity photo has a method of checking color? If a leaf is green I would like ensure the photo shows a green leaf. I hope you understand what I am asking. Thanks,
  15. Hello! I am still new to affinity photo on the pc. I haven't had any problems with it at all until now. As I am drawing an illustration for a client my brush opacity is dropping to 0% without me doing anything but drawing. I have changed brushes, I have checked the setting for those brushes it even does it with the erase brush. It just randomly drops to 0%. I am using a huion kamvas 22 plus to draw with as well as a razer tartarus chroma for shortcut keys. The pen driver has no issues and nothing has changed with my razer keypad. I am at a loss on how to fix this. I have to change the opacity back up to 100% every few minutes and I am unable to work. Is anyone else having this problem or knows how to fix it?
  16. Hello, recently I was extracting a logo from a white background in Affinity Photo 1.8.6 and imported it into the latest version of Final Cut Pro and noticed some noise around the edges. I thought at first I just didn't look close enough when I masked it, but when I exported with black in the background it looked clean. I attached an image that was blowup so the overall quality is not great, however I placed the keyed version on top and cropped it so you can see a side by comparison of what I'm talking about. The left side has the image with the background included in the PNG, the right side is keyed over the left image. As you can see, there is noise all around on the right side. I created the same masking in photoshop and it was clean. Has anyone had this issue?
  17. So Affinity Photo has a "Add Preset" button on their "Adjustments". For example this is the "Black & White adjustment": I think it would be awesome and helpful if there was a drop down menu next to the "Add preset" with already saved presets. So it would look something like this:
  18. This post is about something I didn't think was possible. I do my painting in Corel Painter (at least until Affinity comes with a contender), but this topic is not about the Painter, but about Affinity Photo. Working with musicians, mainly from Norway and the US, and as we all know an album or LP in vinyl, has at least 8 tracks typically. So as my artwork basically are digital-based today, I can do as musicians - publish an LP, not with 8 tracks, but with 8 paintings. Let me add that LP here is not 'Long Playing', but 'Long Painting' (-: So when the first painting was done, I copied a slice of the right side of the painting and pasted that thin slice on the left side on the next canvas - and the plan was to put them together as one Long Painting, ending up as a video. In Painter, I use the size of 10'000x7'143 pixels, 300dpi, as that is reasonably close to what Painter can take, as this would result in a width of 80'000 pixels. So I reduced the height a bit to 4'223 pixels, put one and one painting together, and the result was a with of 50'612 pixels. Honestly, that amazed me, as this is pretty large - but Affinity Photo worked as an amazing hero, and I got the result that one can view here on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=InGkezL_Wb4&t=28s Thank you Affinity for making my crazy ideas possible (-:

  20. I don't really know how to use the right words to describe what's happening, but I'll do my best. I'm not very knowledgeable about all the specific terminology or anything... 😞 I've used Designer for a year or two now, rarely any problems (and most I have, I can figure out myself) and I've somewhat recently gotten Photo and Publisher. I'm working on a small charity project and I'm having a LOT of trouble, which hasn't happened before. The leftmost is the original, still in Photo. The right is the first export. The color became a little more dull. I wasn't sure why, as I haven't really had this issue before, so I switched to designer to try to see if I could export it there. Turns out, that was a HUGE mistake. The colors went pastel, and I can't revert it back to the original without redoing the entire thing. I usually only do digital art in Designer and I've never had this problem, so I have no clue what went wrong or how to fix it. I just want the original colors back without having to redo all the masks (I was lazy and didn't separately crop each image...) and I'm now scared this will happen to anything else I use with any of the 3 programs, so I can't open any other files until I get this figured out. I did restart my machine, but it still happened after too. Every time I open the file, or transfer between the programs, it gets worse. I have the most recent updates for all three, and I'm running OS Catalina 10.15.6, if that makes any difference.
  21. Here is a greyscale noise(100%) palette I created while working on some metallic surfaces. This is a vector - texture palette that doubles as a pixel greyscale palette (duel use). Enjoy, - T V Grey Noise.afpalette
  22. Just bought Affinity Photo from the Black Friday Sale - really enjoyed trying it out with the lockdown trial. Been experimenting with some of the brushes I got in the BF sale., working on an idea for a fanzine inspired by The Beach Boys song Angel Come Home. Gold Photo painted over mostly using Frankentoon Neptune & DAUB Watercolours & Washes brushes and multiple layers. Blue - flattened gold image painted over with various brushes (mostly from Frankentoon Nature, but I installed Xenon & Powder Blast brushes at the same time so prob also used some of them) Original photo - paper angel on a Hawaiian shirt napkin background. (Photo of Dennis Wilson is one I found online, taken by Ebet Roberts. Wings are from digital scrapbooking kit Broken Wings {elements} by Little Butterfly Wings. Napkins were from Tescos 😀 )
