  1. Hello forum, Just purchased the product and overall it is excellent. That said, it is missing a genuinely needed option within cropping. This being the ability to lock/align the cropping tool to the center of the image so that when you click and drag from the left; the right also crops to the same amount, and like wise from top to bottom. Most importantly to me is the need to crop from a corner and for all other points to move the same amount (whilst being locked at the center) framing the image equally and effectively. I believe although do not fully remember that to do something similar in the overly priced competitor of affinity photo is by holding down alt (or maybe it was shift, but not both together) whilst cropping. For now i am manually center cropping by adding/taking away the x and y value to achive an equal border. Thanks
  2. In any given programs there is the ability to crop the canvas, however in Affinity Designer you have to go all the way to the Document Setup and do the guess work if you're cropping at a specific size. Is there any possible ways to crop the canvas on the canvas itself, like in Photoshop or Illustrator you can just resize the canvas with the artboard tool, however that doesn't seems to be the case in Affinity Designer, unless I am missing something here. Thanks!
  3. Good morning, It looks to me (maybe I'm wrong) that is not possible to set some default settings to the crop tool. I'd like for example to have it always set on "Original Ratio" and with the "Darken Border" always checked, in order to speed up a basic process like cropping a bunch of catalog photos. I've found this intuitive option in every processing software I've used so far but can't figure it out here. Any ideas? If such a thing doesn't exist for AP it would be awesome to have it ASAP since it'll speed up the workflow, especially when working on several images. Thanks
  4. I purchased the entire Affinity suite when it was first released as a Beta. But I had been using Photoshop CS6 so long (and knew it so well) that I never made the effort to switch. Now that I'm on macOS Monterey, CS6 is no longer available. On PS, I used macros extensively and could create what I needed without even thinking about it. I'm confident that I will soon have the same comfort level with Affinity products. But this old dog needs some help in learning my new tricks! My challenge at present is to take a full screenshot and turn it into two pages, one comprising the left half of the screen and the other comprising the left half of the screen. I'd do this for a number of similar screenshots and, when finished, I'd combined them into a PDF book. The process I used in PS was to crop the original to half the size (left side first), then save it with the same name, appending "_Lft" to the name. Then undo the crop and repeat for the right side, appending "_Rgt" to the name instead. Close the image and continue to the next. I would either load all the screenshots at once and automate it to all, OR I would simply batch process through all full-size screenshots within a given folder. For some reason, I'm having an issue getting my head around creating the process in Affinity Photo (age, most likely). Any assistance in regard to the best approach would be greatly appreciated.

  5. Ok now it's becoming very annoying. AD crashes at least once a day. It crashes when exporting using Export Personna, when copying layers from a document to another (I already reported those 2 bugs). And now it just crashed while I was croping an image. I'm using AD from the first version, I was very enthusiastic at the begining. But I start thinking that this app cannot be used in a professionnal way. Can someone from the Affinity team tell me that those bugs are known and will be corrected soon ? Please stop making new features for now and focus on resolving bugs. I really don't wanna go back to Illustator. Thanks affinity_crash.txt
  6. I am wondering if any further improvements are planned for the crop tool? One trick I enjoyed from PS is proportionally cropping by holding the "alt" key, I noticed that as of betas 1.5.x that this is still not possible. Hopefully the gif demonstrates what I am referring to. Thanks
  7. Have you ever tried to arrange objects in the layers panel only to loose them, and then find it nestled in a collapsed group of objects? Ever try and move an object so it clips anther object and it ends up with an unexpected result? Ever wonder what those enigmatic icons in the layer thumbnails are trying to tell you? This guide is for anyone with those questions. From folks that are new to Affinity Products, to people who has been using it for years and struggled with the behaviour of layers. This 3-page visual how-to guide will hopefully help reveal any or all of the cryptic layer mysteries! The guide is in English for desktop versions of the products, designed the Windows version, tested mostly in Affinity Designer, but should translate well to Affinity Photo and Publisher. I would love to hear your feedback, if you notice any errors, have any additions, and/or let me know if it helps you, please chime in! NOTE: PDF DOWNLOAD AT THE BOTTOM. Please download it! Cheers, Dave Vector Affinity Layers Guide - Understanding Masks, Moves, Crops, Clips, Adjustments.pdf
  8. Hi. I'm loving AF so far, but of course, there's stuff from PS I can't live without, and one of them is Perspective crop. I've fiddled a lot with the crop tool but this doesn't seem to be possible. Is there a way to do it or a workaround? Perspective tool doesn't cut it for me for this purpose. Thanks.
  9. Hello everyone, I'm new in affinity photo and I try to find on Youtube tutorials or here on the forum how to perspective crop an object, keeping the aspect ratio of that object. I have to crop some paintings from photo and if I use the perspective crop tool it lengthens my result. I do something wrong or this future is not available in Affinity yet? I attach 2 examples. Normal one is cropped in Photoshop, second in Affinity. I really like Affinity Photo but there are some future missing, or I didn't discover it yet.
  10. Attempting to crop a photo this evening when I found that it wouldn't work. The double-headed arrow appeared and could be moved about but it didn't move the grid and wouldn't allow a crop. My husband had exactly the same issue with a different photo about an hour earlier. He has a Mac and I am using Windows 10. We were both using graphics tablets. Closing the photo down and reopening allowed the crop. But then it happened a couple more times with other photos. Prior to that I had no problems with cropping. I have just tried cropping again and now it is working. Baffled. I saw a previous post on the same issue and tried Reset-ing the crop tool but that made no difference. Any ideas? Thanks
  11. Crop many digitized photos for playback on TV. Format 16: 9 instead of unrestricted desired as a default setting at start. what to do? Please help.
  12. I don't have time to search entire forums or the interwebs to see if someone else has ever suggested this feedback before. So I offer my apologies if my suggestions have already been covered. 1) Please can you provide a feedback function WITHIN the application it self. It's incredibly frustrating to have to use out dated methods of signing up to god-awful web-forums which just leads to nonconstructive replies of un-thought out opinions and arguments. It also allows you to correctly link feedback (and abuse) to the software license of the user and even categorise the feedback so you can easily see which areas are causing most concern to the user base. 2) Please can you fix the mouse icon when painting in masks in the develop mode. The standard OS mouse icon does not feel accurate to paint with. Also a nice to improve if possible: Painting often feels sluggish to see the red tint forming. If there is a way to make this feel more responsive without upgrading an existing 32GB RAM I7 processor machine, that would be lovely please. 3) Cropping in Develop mode is missing an "ok" or "finished" button. It's frustrating to be sitting back with my tablet, controlling everything then having reach over to the keyboard which I moved to one side, just to hit <enter>. I don't want to map the enter key to my tablet device as it's never used for anything else! if you simply put a button in the UI it will mean I can just move the mouse there and click! perhaps I've missed a trick that does what I want, but then that would mean it's not obvious and intuitive to the user. 4) Please update the flash function for uploading files on this forum. Who runs flash in 2017? Browsers auto block flash from running by default because it's nasty. 5) More of a question then a suggestion, but is there a way to rename the overlays in the Overlays tab in Develop mode? I have 3 gradient overlays, all with the same name! that's very confusing to simple minds like myself. 6) Although I generally hope you spend more time fine tuning what you have already developed, instead of just rushing out new features, it would be nice if there was an in-application function for browsing image files, with a nice big preview of the image and EXIF data, which you can then double click to open it in the develop mode. I don't think anyone wants all this "importing" and cataloguing rubbish which is very slow. But browsing files within Affinity with a UI that suits photographers that windows/macOS don't offer, would be a great win. Thanks for your time.
  13. How to crop an image on a selected layer - Affinity Photo v1.3.4? It seems the Crop Tool is a global function. How would I accurately crop an image in a selected layer?

  15. I could really use a destructive crop method that can be triggered by shortcuts for processing large numbers of files. I know that many people would say that having a non-destructive crop is better...just not in all circumstances. Here's the scenario.I am managing a hundreds of photos of students for our school database. The photos are all rapidly taken with lots of extraneous background and very poor centring. They are also just too big in file size and bloat the database if loaded as taken (yes I know, better source photos would be great, taken at a lower resolution...yes we have tried to train the staff) This was possible in photoshop with a selection and a series of shortcuts: Rectangular selection (based on a ratio) Crop (user defined key strokes) Image size (Shift-Command I) Save at a lower resolution (Command S and offered at save time) In photoshop I managed about 200 files in about 25 minutes. This would take hours in Affinity - batch won't work because this would require the same selection to be made each time. What do you think? I know others miss this too... As a second best, the ability to click-drag to expand the crop selection (ie expand from centre not at edge or corner) would be very welcome
  16. Hi, I imported an image, cropped it. Then applied curves adjustment with a mask to apply the adjustment on a specific area. I re-cropped the photograph to include more area. The adjustment layer is incorrectly applied on the newly accommodated area, because it was never included in the mask. So when I'm cropping out, the adjustment is automatically getting applied to the accomodated area. Steps to reproduce: Step 1 : Import image Step 2: Crop the image Step 3: Create an adjustment layer with a mask Step 4: Edit the adjustment layer Step 5: Re-crop to include more area Step 6: Check if the adjustment layer is not applied on the additional area included in Step 5 I want the mask to remain the same and not allow the adjustment layer in the newly accommodated area. Any help or directions in this regard is appreciated. Edit: If I select the mask and paint black over the unapplied area, the adjustment layers vanishes from that region. But are there any other ways to do this automatically when we expand the crop? Regards Gokul
  17. Just wondering if there is a tool in Affinity Photo to crop a photo to a circle shape.
  18. I have been trying to create an image consisting of a single column of pixes (from one image) replicated sideways. (And do the same thing for a horizontal row.) I first tried using the crop tooj, selecting a narrow crop and entering a small number of pixels in the width box (1, 2 or 3px). Each time, when I completed the crop, the image seemed to disappear. If I then used Document > Resize Document and gave it a full width, Photo just hung. I had to resart my PC to get out of it. Is this a bug, or a feature. I solved my original problem by using Filter > Distort > Equations and entering x=w/2 (or y-y/2) which gave the desired result. John
  19. Hi! I didn't find anything like this so I ask you guys. Using Inkscape I can crop ("clip" as it's called) a raster image using any vector shape The way to do this is putting the shape above the raster image, select both, go Object > Clip > Set; the result is a raster image like the following example in the attached PNG. That's the way I put some texture or anything in certain shapes. Is there a way to do something like that? If that's not the case, sounds reasonable as a Feature request? Best regards!
  20. I have a document from which I’d like to export multiple slight variations in content and size. Artboards are not a solution: Objects can only belong to one artboard at a time, which requires duplicating the majority of objects across artboards, and then I would need to update each object on each artboard. Selecting a frame or background object and then clicking Artboard Tool, Size Selection, Insert Artboard does not work, because the resultant artboard bizarrely is always 50% larger than the object’s stroke width (bug filed in this support thread here). Artboards introduce more complication than is necessary. My current workaround is to: Note the position and dimensions of my frame or background object. Click Document Setup, Dimensions, Anchor to Page, choose a bottom anchor, disable proportion lock, enter the desired height of current height minus top position. Repeat the previous step with a top anchor chosen and a desired height equal to the frame/background height. This workaround is tedious, time-consuming, and prone to error. Please introduce a simple, click-and-drag, graphical-user-interface tool to crop the document/page/canvas to an object or guides. Thank you.
  21. Since v.1.10, after I've worked on a few files, when I use the crop tool to manually rotate and straighten a photo, there is a lag and a jerky motion which makes it difficult to be precise. After restarting program it works properly for awhile. Performance setting attached Any thoughts are much appreciated. 2017 27" iMac 3.4GHz, 24 GB DDR4 RAM running Big Sur 11.5.1
  22. Affinity Photo version 1.9.2.1035 on Windows 10 : the devellop function crops NEF File . D4#5296.afphoto D4#5296.NEF
  23. Would be nice if AP could straighten distorted object while cropping an image like Photoshop. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/crop-straighten-photos.html It's useful for an image of buildings/documents
  24. Please give me a hint. How to make a REAL crop in Affinity Photo? AP remembers all of the original canvas, which is super annoying . Many effects (maybe even all of them) are rendered from the original entire canvas, not the crop area. For example: this is the case with the mirror effect. It is centred but relative to the centre before the crop (of course we can move the kaleidoscope point). To render the reflection, graphic areas are used that are no longer present on the canvas !!! PhotoPlus started with the idea of remembering the original canvas, there was an option to uncheck it. It should be similar in AP, I have no idea where?
  25. I haven't found a solution to this yet on affinity or other vector programs, hoping someone has. In my work I am consistently trying to crop a series of vector paths using a shape (like a circle. I can crop one at a time, copy/pasting the circle over again and again, but that is very time-consuming. I've attached a very basic file to try and illustrate this. In the group on the left, basically I want the 'hairs' outside of the thicker circle gone, leaving only the parts that were inside, so it ends up looking like the group on the right. I manually edited this one to show you. I need these to still be vector paths, not expanded or rasterized. Any ideas? Thank you. VectorCropAttempt.afdesign
