  1. Good morning, When you click on the APh persona within APu, are all of the APh features available to use? If yes, then when you open APu, you are actually opening both APu and APh. Thanks
  2. Looking through my old images, and decided this would be fun to play with using "selective color." Really gave the touch I wanted to the image by moving the background away and making the flower head stand out. Added a small amount of dodging and burning.
  3. Hi, I have a iMac Pro 2017 with 3 GHz 10-Core Intel Xeon W, 64 GB 2666 MHz DDR4, 2 TB SSD and Radeon Pro Vega 64X 16 GB graphic card. I use Capture One to develop my 61MP Sony A7rIV photos. Some of the photos need to be edited in Affinity Photo and I use a TIFF 8bit uncompressed AdobeRGB as format. The image has 9504x6336px size. Saving the picture after edit in Affinity Photo takes a lot of time. It takes ~14 seconds for every photo!!! Is that normal for such a high performance machine? The Activity View does not show any heavy consumption of resources while saving in that 14 seconds. Greetings, Christoph
  4. Hi to all, I am encountering a strange behaviour which might be a bug (or a feature? - I don't know). I have a document in designer which consist of multiple embedded pictures. One picture needed further retouching so I want to open it in Photo. The problems came when I tried to get things back to designer. I tried two different approches 1) In designer I selected the picture and clicked "Edit image" (I don't know the correct english words as I am using the German version). Then I clicked File->Edit in Affinity Photo in the menu. Photo opened up, I did my retouching and saved. A dialog appeared if I wanted to save a reduced version for the desired file format can only contain pixel data -> ok. Then I closed Photo. But the changes did not appear in Designer at all. Bad luck. So I tried a different approach: 2) In designer I selected File->"Edit in Affinity Photo" for the whole document. Photo opens up. There I select the desired picture and select Edit image. Retouching. Save. Reduced format -> ok. Everything's fine. Then I save the whole document and open it again in Designer. But there the picture looks really ugly with huge pixels (like 32 x 24 or so). When I click "edit image" I have the HQ result from Photo but when I close the editing mode, again I have those big blocks. If I try to export a pdf for example - the picture is just not present (in my case there is a coloured square - the container which holds the image in the document). I am not quite sure if this is the correct behavior. But in my opinion at least (2) should have worked properly. So it seams that there is a bug somewhere. Anyway - it would be grad to have a better way to edit an embedded image in photo, like it works in publisher. That's really cool. The workflow to edit an image and then start up the other application while the document in the original application is closed is a bit clumsy imho. Thanks so far. Jan
  5. Hi All, I am seeing some nice photos from iPhone 11 and portrait mode, especially for low-key and high-key. Is there any way to do this with Affinity Photo Desktop? I saw some video on YouTube using the "lights" simulation and masks with Affinity Photo, but cannot find that clip anymore. Wondering if anyone else had some nice steps, samples to show how to create Low-Key and High-Key images with Affinity Photo (e.g. normal colour photo as source) and then end up with High and Low. Thanks in advance
  6. What’s the best way to create this effect (in designer, publisher or photo)? The face and background of each photo have different color overlays. Thanks in advance!
  7. Affinity Online Help Hello all, we're happy to be able to offer you an online version of the in-app help! Access Designer, Photo & Publisher Help here: https://affinity.help Here are some of the additional features we're able to implement as a result of having proper browser support: Dynamic language switching: The help will determine your language and (if it's available) serve you a localised copy of the help. If you prefer to read in another language, however, you'll find a combo box at the bottom left which will enable you to change languages—and stay on the page you're currently reading. Print: Sounds simple, but with full browser support we can now implement printing of the topic pages. The print icon in the bottom left will give you a nicely formatted printout of the current topic. Share: Clicking the clipboard icon will copy the current topic's URL to your clipboard, which means you can easily point other people towards topics that may help them. Responsive: The help was responsive anyway, including off-canvas menu functionality so you could collapse the window and still read a topic, but this is taken further in this version of the help. The help is formatted nicely and usable even on a 4" iPhone SE screen. Search: we've implemented our own bespoke search for the online help which is fast and accurate. Access it via the tab system along the top left. Favourites: you can add topics to your favourites list to easily access them during future browser sessions. Simply click the + (plus) icon next to the "Favourites" tab to add the current topic. With this online version you'll be able to print out topics and view them on your tablets/phones, which are two of the most common requests when it comes to help feedback. As always, if you have any feedback or find any issues with this online version, please let us know! Hope you find it useful.
  8. Hello guys, I learn how to work with Affinity Photo. I have got enclosed a file from this source https://discuss.pixls.us/t/out-of-the-box-raw-rendering-not-up-to-jpegs/6669/23 and I have tried to change the colors of the bridge. In another editor, I can change the colors quite well but in Affinity Photo is a problem for me. If somebody can help me with how to correct these colors I will be delighted. DSCF1110.RAF
  9. Hi everyone, I want to export a png with transparent background so I can import it in my CAD software. I created a document 1000x1000 pixels. Used a tree-brush to create said image with a shadow. Next I click on export PNG and when I go and import it in my CAD software it just doesnt let me choose a Alpha channel. So I assume theres none exported. I tried all solutions that have been posted on the forum but I cant seem to get it right. I added the file and a screenshot of the import window. Thanks in advance for your help. Tree.afphoto
  10. The Nikon ES-2 Film digitising adapter seems to be an effective way of digitising negative colour film. Is there an easy workflow in Affinity Photo to convert the negative RAW or JPEG files into positive pictures?
  11. Hello community, Not sure what happened, for months i have used many brushes in affinity photo and have added tons as well. Suddenly noticing, there are only default brushes left. All my brushes have disappeared. Help very much appreciated. Thanks Gyan
  12. I'm using Affinity Photo to create logos and then exporting them as a png for use in a number of places. One of the places I'm using the logos is in a brand book that is being built in Affinity Publisher. I've noticed that the Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher color codes don't match... Is it a bug? Am I doing something wrong or do I not understand something?
  13. This may seem like a small detail, but it constantly trips me up when opening new documents that the top default tool in Affinity Photo is for some reason the View tool (Hand, for panning around) and not the arrow pointer Move tool. This is different for some reason in Photo, whilst both Affinity Designer and Publisher follow the convention of most other tool-based graphics software that have move/select tools as the first default tool and the view/pan tool placed by the zoom tool. Seems extra strange since the View tool is probably the one tool I never use as it's so easy to pan around with middle mouse button or space bar. So if you don't have any good reason for this, please change the default top tool to the Move tool and move the View tool down like in your other software.
  14. I am just starting to learn how to use Affinity Photo. When merging three photos I saved my work on Desktop. Now I can only open Affinity Photo by clicking on that saved image on Desktop. How can I revert back to opening Affinity Photo by clicking on the Affinity Photo icon-there is a dot under the icon the whole time now as if it is open even when it is closed! (On iMac).
  15. Hi, Paint Brush Tool does not respond correctly anymore after using Mesh Warp Tool. Steps to reproduce : - Paint something on pixel Layer - Use Mesh warp tool to deform it - Go back to Paint Brush Tool, and try to draw anywhere on a layer. You'll start to draw something only on certain areas, randomly. I'm using AF 1.7.3 on Windows 10

  17. Hello ! In Affinity Photo, I worked to compose the relief motif "Honey", honey flow, colors, etc ... How do you find?
  18. Hello, I was hoping someone might be able to help. I'm fairly new to using Affinity Photo/Design and Publisher on OSX. Recently, I imported an old PSD template file with multiple layers into Affinity Photo 1.7.3 and it looked absolutely perfect! After adding a few extra logos as layers, i saved the file as both PSD and also as standard Affinity Photo file (AFPhoto) and for some reason when i open the PSD file, all the extra layers I added are shown, but the source files in those layers are missing (blank). I'm not sure why it would be doing this as when i saved the file everything was showing up correctly. Although when opening the AFPhoto file it all looks fine. It would be great to have copies of the files in both PSD and AFPhoto format, and I would be very grateful if anyone can help me figure out why the files are missing when exporting and reloading as PSD. Maybe i'm missing a step somewhere, but i though everything would be self-contained in the PSD file when saving? (My only guess is that i copied the layer images files to clipboard and then pasted this into the layer files. Could this be part of the problem?) Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
  19. Hi Everyone, I finished working on a photo in AP for iPad, and accidentally closed the file. Is there any way I can recover my work? Thanks
