  1. Okay, it was relatively easy to place a new sky layer on an old faded photo but I cannot seem to merge the layers without overlapping the photo. What changed with the new update first. Secondly, how do I accomplish this in the new version? Any suggestions or help are greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. How/where/what format does AP save edited RAW images from Apple Photos database? This includes both photos editing as an extension and using the Image > Edit with command. My concerns are the ever-increasing size of my local Apple Photos database and the syncing to other devices in the Cloud, and of course the Cloud size requirements. Based on this information I hope to calculate my photo storage growth needs then determine if it can be sustained "as is" or if I'll need to find another solution. Thanks
  3. How to create the teal and orange look with the channel mixer. Probably the easiest method. Just enter 3 numbers!
  4. My Mac OS system sometimes crashes completely while saving a file in Affinity Photo. It happened on my old 2011 Macbook Pro with an older version of Mac OS as well as on the (almost) latest late 2017 MacBook Pro with HighSierry Mac OS 10.13.6. It happened about 5 times already, so it seems to be a real issue. It doesn't matter what file I'm saving to: .psd, .tiff, .afphoto I can't reproduce the problem. It just suddenly happens.
  5. I've noticed that Affinity is often gobbling up quite a bit of CPU even when it's the "current" app. My everyday workhorse is an energy saving i3 with 4Gb RAM so sucking 25% or more of CPU time when it should be idle is a bit of a bind. Not being an Windows expert I'm unsure if there's anything that can be done about this. I may be thinking of Mac OSX (it's been a while) but isn't it possible to put a app into a "sleep" mode when it's not in focus - or in particular when it's covered by other windows? I design a lot of memes - they're rarely complex, but it means switching between a web browser and the Affinity window and I find that the browsers are fighting Affinity for a share of the limited CPU and memory. I guess there's not much we can do about memory but surely the CPU usage could be throttled? My other machines have more than enough cores and memory to handle this but they also need a small power station to run so I tend to break them out as an when necessary. I should also say (as this is my first post to the forum) that apart from having Affinity since it's first Mac release it's never ceased to amaze me! Well done chaps - this isn't so much a bug as a feature request!
  6. Made with Affinity Photo and Designer complete on the iPad Pro (Also used After Effect + Rough Animator for motion graphic) While studying at SAE for my Bachelor of Design, I got the opportunity to work on a re-brand and advertisement campaign for Wokka. (The following body of work is for university work only and are not for a real camping) The campaign is focused around 3 main posters that follow the story of the Dinosaur challenging the Ninja to a fight (Poster 1) so they go to the battlefield in order to fight (Poster 2) Tho they realized that neither one of them knew how to fight, so they ended it on the dance floor. The Ninja won the battle and the dinosaurs did not like this so he takes the ninja into hiding. After a couple of weeks after the posters go up a new poster he be put up over the past posters along in other area's and within the online place, this poster is a "Ninja missing poster" on the back will give some information and a QR code to give information to the "player" about the "transmedia" game where the "player" will need go around the "real world" with the Wokka app taking photos of the ninja's clothes, ninja sword, ninja star along with the use of information around online such as youtube video, Reddit posts, forum posts and more to help give information to the ninja's location, bringing the community together for a single goal. To help find the ninja's location in order for the first 5 people who find him and take a photo to get one year supply of Wokka noddles and to start of 50% off and double points for Wokka products.

  7. Hi! I've just found, that moving around picture via pressing space (and left mouse button), with Flood Select Tool turned on, I constantly select areas pointed via hand coursor. Same when using Selection Brush Tool.
  8. Hi, I am running an art studio in Berlin (lifelike-figures.com), I shoot my own art/products and need to edit the photos then. I am more practical, not a computer nerd. Have been using a super old CS2 for editing for ages, but- surprise!- it is really not compatible anymore with my windows7 :(. I just bought and installed Affinity Photo, I thinks it's a great software. I tried to learn it using tutorials- but I hate tutorials, not my type of learning :(. I am looking for someone in Berlin (I am located at Neukölln), who is dealing with photoediting a lot and professionally, who is good at teaching, good at using this software and can bring my very old photpshop knowledge UP TO DATE! I would apprechiate if that person could come to my studio for 1 or two hours per week until I am "fluent" at affinity photo :). Of course I pay, price can be discussed. German speaking person preferred, I speak english well, but it would be easier in the end. Anyone interested? Best Lisa
  9. Hey all, I'm unable to run any affinity installer to either update my programs or install them from scratch. Every time I try it starts a new process and then immediately terminates it, I have tried running it in compatibility mode, as Administrator and even redownloaded the same files. It's only happening with affinity products, I have been able to install other apps just fine on my machine.
  10. Hey team, I've been trying out Affinity Photo as an replacement for Photoshop and I'm currently experiencing glitching of paint strokes when working on a 32-bit document. It seems to be affected by the brightness levels of the pixels in the document from what I can observe and sometimes certain areas are unpaintable at all. Restarting Affinity may resolve the issue for a few strokes but it will occur again. Below are two images, hopefully the issue is obvious enough! Edit: Tried 16-bit and the same issue occurs. Brush strokes will overlap (the brighter strokes cannot be painted over). See 3rd image for the result. Edit 3: It's happening it 8-bit too! This is getting really weird. Edit 4: Seems like the issue can be resolved by copying the content from the exr/hdr/affinity document to an new one. (The 2nd image was an 32 bit file from Affinity Photo for Mac). Brush strokes are overlapping and I'm able to paint over the image as expected. (4th image, showing that brush strokes overlap predictably)
  11. From just one file but not all done in Affinity How and why questions welcome
  12. I have another video on my YouTube channel. Orange and Teal with the curves adjustment. I'm still a beginner at this YouTube thing so comments are very welcome
  13. Hi, in Affinity Photo, if my PNG has a white background, is there an easy way to make the background transparent? Similar to this technique: https://www.sitepoint.com/easily-remove-white-or-black-backgrounds-with-blending-sliders-in-photoshop/ It uses Photoshop's "Blending Options" inside Layer styles, which I didn't find in Affinity Photo ... Alternatively, is it possible to remove the background by playing with the color channels? If yes, how exactly would I do that? I know that I could use the selection brush or "Magic Wand" tool to remove the background, but I assume it's "more perfect" by using the blending technique or playing with the color channels. I'm new to image manipulation though, so I would be grateful for any help!
  14. How to transform a photo into subtle, gorgeous pencil drawings in Affinity Photo (Photoshop Alternative). In this video, I will show you, how to use HSL Adjustment, Levels and Gaussian blur for transforming a photo into like a sketch. I hope you like it.
  15. Hi there, I've found an irritating display error (at least I think it is one): In Affinity Designer (1.6.5.123) I've created a new document with three artboards and placed four images (*.afphoto) in it. Then I selected two of the images on the first artboard, copied (ctrl-c) and pasted (ctrl-v) them on the second artboard. Afterwards I selected one of the copied images and clicked "replace document" in the context menu. The recplacement did work, but the display did honour the replacement only at certain zoom levels. If I zoomed in to 100%, everythings looked fine and I could see the new image. The moment I zoomed out, I got the previous image displayed again. I could even repeat that: zoom in - new image, zoom out - previous image, zoom in - new image, zoom out - previous image. To be fair: Once I'd saved the document, closed and reopened it, everything went as supposed. Best, Volker
  16. Hi Everyone, Made the jump today to buy affinity photo and designer. Whilst I am loving it all, my huion 1060 plus tablet will not work in either program? I have tried it in other programs and it works fine, I have tried different settings, even uninstalling the tablet driver and re-installing it but only affinity photo and designer refuse to allow it to work. Can anyone help me, I really am lost and need to use my tablet with my work on these programs. Thanks in advance! Billie
  17. Hello, buddies! I have quite a hard time managing and changing fonts in both AP and AD, but one of the features I miss the most is the possibility to filter all my fonts to their specific families: serif, slab serif, sans, script, decorative, etc. Is it possible to be done? If not, will it be implemented? Also, is there any way of changing font size clicking 'n' dragging in the icon, like Photoshop? The only solution I've found so far to ease the size modification (as defined numbers aren't really a big help) is assigning the commands to increase and decrease to shortcuts, like Ctrl+Alt+>. All suggestions are welcome! Thanks.
  18. I've been fooling around with this idea of a legged oven for some time. It started as an unremarkable sketch for Inktober, but I liked the idea and am bringing it further. I am doing some moods and concept sketches in AD/AP, which might end up as guides for a 3D scene.
  19. Audrey Hepburn: Moon River (Vector) Portrait (Affinity Designer/Photo) https://b-bertuleit.de/audrey-hepburn-portrait/
  20. That one turned out a bit cheesy, but nonetheless was a valuable proof of concept. I started with a hand drawn fish which I then hooked into a particle system in Fusion 9. There I could easily add some variation to individual fish, like size and rotation. Back in Photo I added the background, light rays and a slight vignette and depth of field blur towards the edges.

  22. Hello all. I have decided to start putting up some tutorials on my YouTube channel. As I absolutely love Affinity Photo, I though I would start with that. So I have created a little video explaining how to create a water ripple effect using the equation filter. https://youtu.be/wIi6_60KF90 If you like it then please give it a thumbs up as I need all the help I can get Cheers. Scott.
  23. Hello! So, my question is basically, "what's the big jump/difference between AP and AD?". I know this question has already been asked and the short answer is: "AP for pixel and photo editing and AD for vector-based graphics and illustration." Here's my point: I've been using Photoshop and Illustrator for a while but I'm transitioning to Affinity, 'cause it's lovely. I've been doing social media posts that mix images and graphics (text, shapes, graphic elements, etc) since before the transition, and it was clear to me the point where PS and AI intersected. I could not do "organic" strokes with the pen tool on Photoshop, neither could I edit text as curves. I couldn't work smoothly with gradients, merge shapes with complex operations—like pathfinder—and the list goes on. Photoshop was pretty limited in vector managing, and Illustrator couldn't do pixel work. Fast forward, I open Affinity Photo and it's like I don't need a vector software anymore. Everything I'd need to open Illustrator for is inside Affinity's pixel-based editor. As if it's not enough, AD can handle pixel manipulation—though I didn't use it enough to know its limits. I've tested both AP and AD during the free trial and, after expiration, bought Photo. I'm considering buying Designer now because their workflow together is pretty amazing, but do I really need it? What can Designer do that Photo can't? I feel like I can take the pen tool on Photo and create any shape I'd want, applying colors effortlessly. Can someone enlight me? Thanks!
  24. I've been holding off posting until our Indie VR game is just about ready for release - within the next couple of months on Steam. I've been using both Photo and Designer since soon after they were released for Windows and, having used the Adobe suite for the day job (for many years), I want to thank the team as in this short time, I already greatly prefer the Affinity suite. Back on topic - The game is called Professor Chuckenhope and is based on the classic knife-throwing vaudeville act, with many twists. As a duo, with myself being the modelling/art-side of the project, we could not have achieved as much as we have as quickly as we have, without the easy Photo/Designer workflow, for the majority of the texturing. Everything apart from the character models (which are painted within Blender, but also using Photo for added details) has been textured/illustrated purely using the Designer/Photo combo. All logos have been created entirely within Designer. As we're currently still working on polishing the final build, I've not had time to work on any high quality 'stills' renders yet, but these are a few working renders, along with a promotional banner, combining and enhancing various rendered elements and the logo within Photo. To see it in motion, we currently have a teaser trailer on our site, with a full trailer also being worked on. www.tiltedreality.online Please excuse the current Wix header, we're a 'shoestring' indie duo after all! Again, a huge thanks to the team, as we would have struggled to achieve anything close to this quality with any other software. Looking forward to trying the Publisher beta.
  25. In short, Affinity Photo develops my RGB monochromatic images as RED when using the Auto-Colors tool, which breaks my processing macro for handling images SOOC. I've attached a sample example JPG from my Fuji X-S1, and the file as batched with equivalent (with exception of Auto-color which does not exist in PhotoPlus x8) SOOC workflows. I don't know an answer on how to address the case of what should be monochromatic images having (stupidly?) auto-color run against them, but I feel like this should be more robust. The alternative is I have to make another batch processing macro and run that only against monochromatic images, which sort of defeats the purpose of batching to begin with if I have to sift through files and take them out one by one.
