  1. Hello, here my Workflow for faking acrylic paintings in Affinity Photo using FotoSketcher(Freeware). I'm using FotoSketcher(.com) for the brushstroke effects. (PhotoArtist, AutoFX AutoMagic or Topaz Impression should work too, but not tested) Form the source image i generate 4 images with different minimal brush sizes, normaly 40, 20, 10 and 5. FotoSketcher settings: Painting 7(Gemälde 7). Have a look at the attached afphoto file. (It's simple, but complicated to explain) The images with thick brush strokes(40, 20) are used for the background and the remaining two images(10, 5) are for the subject und fine details. In Affinity Photo (or Designer) the image with bigest strokes gets loaded and used as main background and the others used as layers on top. My next step is adding layer masks and inverting (strg + i) them. A white brush on the mask is used to paint back the details. The Layer with fines strokes is only used for the face/eyes and other important details. Affinity Photo only: Now i combine the layers to a new layer for a paint effect. Dublicate the layer and apply "find edges" filter. Invert it (strg+i) and use curves to intens the borders. These two layers are needed for Lighting-Live-Effect and texture settings and notice the layer blending settings. Because i used a bw image as sample, i added some colour with extra layer ("Basecolour"). The last three layers adding some artistic feel to image. Colour variation layer: Colour variation are often used in paintings to fake details and add more life to a images. Warm layer: Add a warm orange colour tint to sun lit surfaces. Cold layer: To add a blueish ambient tint to some shadows. ps. You can use load you own brush as image in FotoSketcher. In Brush.zip are my test brushes. Brushes.zip Max_Schreck.afphoto
  2. When I use affinity Designer, the menu "edit in photo(File->edit in Photo)" is not active. So, I can't run affinity Photo from affinity Designer. (and I can't run Designer from Photo, also.) Are there any settings which I have to do.? I bought affinity Photo and Designer. *affinity Designer... windows version 1.5.3 *affinity Photo... windows version 1.5.2 (I use both soft in Japanese)
  3. Hi there, I would like to create text following a curved line. I have found a tutorial to do it on affinity DESIGNER but cannot follow it. I have affinity PHOTO. Am i able to write text on a curved line and if so how do i do this? Thank you, Kate
  4. So every time a upload a RAW photo it take AGES to load. But when I try to upload multiple files, it will either crash or stop responding and the computer will just freeze! Is there anyway that I can speed up Affinity Photo?
  5. Hi everyone, I've read in this forum, that a few others are having the same problem with Affinity Photo crashing when combining several images to an HDR-combination. Same here unfortunately. I think that the file type (raws or jpegs) has no influence on AP crashing, maybe it's the number of images that are combined? With less than 4 images the crashes are less frequent than with 4 and up. I checked on several Mac systems, the crashes are reproducable. Cheers, oliwetti
  6. This is just an idea for later versions of Affinity Photo; I was thinking it would be really nice to have Lightroom Presets compatible with later versions of affinity photo. Although they are different applications, they are still similar so maybe Lightroom Presets could become usable in Affinity photo! (Just an idea but would be very useful) Kind regards! Hanan
  7. Here’s some of my photo manipulation done in my love: affinity photo for iPad dont challenge me here, because I care less if your work is better than mine, rather I care if you yourself like your work as well as mine to share with me and all who feel the same describe your techniques, how long it took, anything original about your workflow... leave SE your raw assets if you want, let’s create a discussion about improving how we use affinity
  8. So, I created an artboard and added guides and edited their values. That worked fine. But when I added a second artboard and added guides and edited their values, the values would not update correctly but instead changed to different values. See step-by-step screenshots attached below.
  9. When editing RAW files, changing the black point and contrast values always make the image extremely dark, even though I’m only changing the value by about 1% or 2%. I’ll link a video to show what the issue is. 525508CB-DB4E-4150-A864-C4BF87CF487D.MOV
  10. Hi, Just recently discovered Affinity Photo and so glad I have. Been working in Photoshop for many, many years and was wanting a change. i.e., a desire to move away from Adobe's subscription based business model. Digitally hand crafting a painting with AP is pure Magic! This image started as a graphite/pencil drawing which I scanned into AP. As you can see, I flipped the image and made some anatomical and perspective corrections to the head with the liquify persona and then went to town hand painting the image. Initially, I used some of my favorite PS brushes which I imported but soon began to discover that the Default brushes that come with AP are far superior to my PS collection of brushes that I collected over the last 15+ years. So I completed the painting primarily with the default brush selections. Here are two images. 1. the final painting 2. the image as it developed. Let me know what you think. All the best

    So I opened up a RAW file into Affinity. It went straight to the Develop Persona, everything was being fast and good. Then I hit the "Develop" button and it took about 10 minutes before I had to quit it because it was being so slow. Why is this happening??

  13. I was trying to prepare images for a print job and ran into a problem when converting to CMYK. In AP I added a Soft Proof layer, chose the CMYK ICC profile in question and made all my adjustments. Then I unselected the SP layer, converted to the ICC profile and saved the result as a TIFF file. The first screenshot shows the RGB stage, the second screenshot shows the resulting CMYK converted file. There is a significant colour shift/desaturation between the softproof display and the actual conversion. Any ideas what could have gone wrong here? I ended up going back to Photoshop for the CMYK separation and ran into another problem: the CMYK TIFF file from Photoshop displayed as blank white when opened in AP or AD. I had to export to PSD in order for AP/AD to see the file.
  14. I saw this today and it would seem a great idea for Affinity Photo. Possibly in the develop persona where it's more about interpretation of greyscale data than RGB data.
  15. Before applying the vignette After applying the vignette What ist the reason for this behavior and what can I do to avoid it? Thanks.
  16. With many of the tools in Affinity Photo, the assistant will automatically switch the layer to rasterized for the tool to work. Could this be done for the inpainting tool? Twice now I've sat there thinking, why doesn't this work? I'll switch to the clone brush and the assistant changes the layer to rasterized and then the inpainting tool works. I've now learned my lesson, but others might not be so quick to catch on that the layer needs to be converted first.
  17. Hey guys, Some months ago I saw a redesigned Apple Music, I liked the idea, so made my own.

  18. I've searched here, but don't see anything on how best to go about dealing with grainy old photos. Does anyone have suggestions on how to clean up those old grainy photos in AF Photo?

  20. I have always had affinity photo on both my laptop and iMac. The iMac has been updated but my MacBook Pro doesn't show an update is pending for the program to the latest version. Both of my computers have had the previous updates coming in without a problem but for some reason my MacBook Pro is not showing an update waiting on the store to download. Both of my computers are current with their latest OS updates. Can someone help me obtain the update for my laptop. It has always been available up till now. Thanks Lee
  21. Dear team, I am using DrawPlus X8 ( to create printed materials like flyers. Now I am working on a new flyer, which must be exported do PDF X:3 format without transparences in CMYK color space. But, I want to create „look like“ transparent. For that purpose I drew a rectangle and set it as a background with CMYK (0-0-0-25) color. At the same time, using Affinity Photo, I created one picture with the same CMYK (0-0-0-25) background color, added some other lines into it and exported to TIFF. However, if I insert TIFF into DrawPlus, both CMYK (0-0-0-25) are not the same! Please help!
  22. I have a lot of photos form a shooting. I am now editing them and finally want to export sections (details) of the images for use in a webshop and on facebook. So I need to export a square image, and one in the h:w ratio that facebook requires. Obviously, I want to define the location and size of the slices for each photo individually (because I need to decide on the detail I want to show), but all the slices should have the same aspect ratio (and export pixel size) for all photos. I thought the export persona is great for this, but it appears quite clumsy to 1) create a slice in exactly 476x714px, then 2) scale the slice frame to fit my desired detail, then to 3) define the export width as actually 714w so that the exported image results as 476x714px. I thought there must be smarter way to do this for each photo. Can't I create some kind of template that has a 476 : 714 aspect ration slice associated with a 714w export? I noticed a menu called "create template for export settings" (translated from german), but it is grayed out. How would you tackle this?
  23. When editing a document on 2 machines, it would be nice to have an option to embed all used fonts into the document or a function which collects all related files into a single folder to give them along with the document. -- Harald
