  1. Hi Affnity, Hi Forumers! I (ab)use Affinity Photo to edit my astrophoto, I find Affinity Photo a great piece of software! However I'm facing a problem that I can't solve: the tiff files out of AP don't work in any star stacking software. I tested Sequator, Starry landscaper, Deep sky star stacker, Iris and Siril. All report the message "unable to read files". Strange, because with jpgs everything flows. I wrote some line to the developers and that is the answer I had: "TIFF is not fully standardized. Although they are called TIFF, some formats or fields may be incompatible
  2. Did you ever want to uncrop? The Powerful Tools Part 10 This beginner Affinity photo tutorial is part 10 of my Digitally Fearless powerful tools playlist and shows you how to do that, clip canvas and more. https://youtu.be/UP-4HHoFd90
  3. V1.85...... Windows 10 desktop PC. The Clone brush tool does not react. When trying to remove an item/object/blemish it does not happen. I did a repair on the programme and the first time i used Clone tool it worked. the second time i tried it it did not and will not do so. Any suggestions please.
  4. Hey Everyone, I made this comic book style portrait of Clark Kent from scratch using Affinity Photo and I've also included a video tutorial of how I made this illustration in the tutorial section. Thanks, Mike
  5. So I am new to Affinity. I was an Adobe user and recently upgraded to the apple 2021 macbook. I was using the Adobe CS6 suite to do all my design work and photo editing. When I got my new macbook I learned my pre-purchased Adobe CS6 did not support the new m1 chip so was facing the decision to pay a monthly Adobe subscription of $53(USD) per month forever! After 5 years, this would have amounted to $3180 (USD). That just seems so unreasonable to me because I feel I am 'priced out' of trying to design. Cue Affinity, the life-savers! Now that I've been using Affinity, Adobe c
  6. I've been working away with pixel art on Affinity Photo, starting with a self portrait of myself, before moving onto stuff like abstract art or places. On my phone, I have a pixel art app, where I can put exported bits on my computer through bluetooth. I export the bits as Portable Network Graphics files (png) So anyway, the top picture is of the pixel app version of myself I'm working from (32x32px) The other picture(s) - the version I'm working on at the moment (128x128px)...
  7. Hey Everyone, I created this video tutorial on how to create a comic book style portrait art in Affinity Photo. I'll be going over the process of sketching, inking, flatting, and coloring. I hope you enjoy this video as much as I enjoyed creating it! Thanks, Mike
  8. I currently have the Affinity suite on my laptop. When the 2021 ipad comes out I am planning on purchasing it. I would like to buy AP and AD now while it is on sale. Can I purchase it without an ipad?
  9. Affinity Photo brings many welcome changes in how we work with text, and I'm enjoying learning the app. I found a minor issue that could be improved. While it's nice that I can enter some text then grab the text size box and have highlighted text immediately jump to show us what the new size will look like in our image, with each point size causing the text to resize itself immediately, I noticed that, while hitting the up or down arrow inside resize box changes the number up or down for us (very convenient if we want to bump size up just a little), it doesn't preview this size for us wi
  10. When I want to print page from Affinity Photo so it print blank page. On page is only text and rectangle. Preview in Print window is gray as disabled without content. Normal preview is white with content. What do I do bad?
  11. Hi, I have been using Affinity Photo for several projects at the same time. Is there a way to have, like "an Affinity Photo that is opened for project A"? Something like: When I export a file, it will remember which folder it should output to in this project; then it knows to output to different folder when it is for another project by default. Because most of the time I just export them forgetting to change destination 😂 as I need to swap around different project to work on. It will be convenient if this feature exists.
  12. Hallo in die Runde! Ich habe mir nun auch noch zum Publisher Affinity Photo für Mac zugelegt und habe leider ein Problem. Es wird aufgefordert eine Pixeleinstellung vorzunehmen bevor es losgehen kann. Wo und wie kann ich das machen? Vielen Dank schon jetzt! Dieter
  13. How to print non-digital paintings. How to prepare your painting for print in the correct size, and for web. This Affinity Photo tutorial video shows how to put the photo back into correct perspective and size it for print. Imagine you just finished an oil painting and you want to digitize it so you can sell prints, place on the web, or submit your work to a gallery. Taking a photo of it on the wall or on an easel distorts the image. This video shows how to correct the distortion and size it correctly. https://youtu.be/BEMNW8PewIs
  14. Hello everyone, I cannot launch affinity photo because of the theme I am using. Is this a way to bypass this and launch affinity photo anyway while keeping the theme I am using ? Thank you.
  15. I'm trying to select just the shirt, but no amount of tolerance will let me select it. (I select the whitespace/transparency and then invert selection) There's always a fuzz around it. I should not need to use refine for this. Photoshop does this without issue Example at 90% Tolerance File AF Version Selection Tolerance Test.afphoto
  16. Hi guys, I just uploaded a n ew video, so I'm creating a photo composite of a person holding the moon, check out the video to see the process. I hope you enjoy this video, thank you! (I use 2 software in this video, Capture One Express for photo retouching & Affinity Photo for photo composite)
  17. I noticed a fairly annoying UI issue with Affinity Photo on Mac. Like many, I am coming from Photoshop to Affinity Photo and am trying to organize things like the tools to match my previous workflow, and I've set up keyboard shortcuts to help me work more quickly. Since I dislike any keyboard shortcut that toggles through tools (I just one one tool per keyboard shortcut), I have B for brush, V for move, L for Lasso and so on. What I find very strange is that, if I select a tool that's already selected, I get system error message, as you can see in the video below. I am selecting the Move
  18. Hi there. After seeing a video with Nick Page using Lumenzia in Photoshop, I was inspired to do luminosity masks in a new and much more customizable way than the much used 5 levels of brigths, midtones, and darks. With these macros, when you create a light, midtones, or dark mask, it doesn't create the mask immediately, but applies 3 adjustments: a B&W, a Curves, and a Levels adjustment. Now you can adjust the three fine tune whatwhat you want in your selection. And using B&W adjustment you can more easily target specific colors. The only difference between the 3 that th
  19. Decided to have a little fun and made this digital sketch of Bernie Sanders 😁
  20. Hi, Just want to clarify if what I've read in other posts is still current. Do guides, the ones you drag out of the rulers, not work as snapping targets for the brushes? I've created a brush, it's an image brush, which stamps out a little image, it has a rotation jitter of 100% so as I draw with it, the image spins around, and it has both a size jitter, and is pressure sensitive for scale with my tablet. I want to draw a square (or indeed a rectangle), whose proportions are exact, but whose edge has all the randomness generated by freehanding the brush pressure. In Photosho
  21. I am trying to get my old Photoshop efficiency in Affinity Photo, and things are going well. But since there's no functionality for Applescript or Javascript automation, the Macro feature becomes super important. Sadly, it just doesn't record what I need to record. I need to set a selection, copy it, paste that copied bitmap, move it over and then crop...but "copy" is not something the Macro can do. Is there any help for me? For Mac users, you can get around a lot of these limitations with Keyboard Maestro. For example I can get around the limitation of not being able to record Export by
  22. Found a frustrating limitation of the "command F" to repeat the last filter I just did: it works as expected (again, as it does in Photoshop) allowing me to perform some filter, then repeat the filter I just did by making a new selection and hitting command F. However, it only "remembers" this inside the file I'm working on. If I've got a bunch of files, for example a bunch of faces I want to apply a mosaic to, I have to manually re-select the setting again, slowing me down. It'd be super great if, whatever filter I applied last to any file were available in the "command F repeat"
  23. I am an aspiring drone photographer, the most I do really do with Affinity Photo is color/contrast correction.
  24. Hi all, I am exploring various colour grading methods in Photo. What I want to do is to take a particular precise colour—either chosen via the ink dropper or input as a specific (hex etc.) code—and to dial that into the shadows or the highlights as part of a very controlled colour palette when toning a photograph. I have been using Selective Colour, Colour Balance, Split Toning and Gradient Maps. The only one that seems to give me access to precise coded colours is Gradient Maps, but that is the most awkward to use for applying to just one part of the tonal range, eg. shadows. It's a
  25. I've drawn an illustration of a crocodile for no reason except too much time. 🙂 I'am working with Designer and Photo on a windows pc with a wacom tablet attached. The original photo was taken by vaun0815 at unsplash.
