  1. 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?
  2. Heya folks! So as I mentioned in the post for a different question I wrote 15 minutes ago, I'm working on a document I'm going to use with a data merge. There's an image for each item, stored in the input file (JSON, if it matters) using relative paths (in this case images/702366.jpg for example). When I use the preview in the layout document the images show fine, but when I use the data merge manager to generate the output file, all the picture frames are empty. Any thoughts or obvious things I'm missing? Edit: Just noticed in preflight for the generated document, it's full of this error: "img_local_url" is the name of the field in the JSON file that contains the relative path.
  3. I am a new user to Affinity Pro 2 and I am trying it out as an alternative to Photoshop. I just finished downloading the app on my windows computer. Anytime I try to open a photo of any type the program goes “not responding” and eventually crashes. This happens no matter what type of photo I open or where it’s located on my computer. I’ve tried resetting the app multiple times, I’ve tried updating my computer, I’ve tried restarting the computer multiple times, and nothing seems to work.
  4. Dear all, in Potoshop I could use 'Replace content' for a image in a layer to replace an transformed and positioned image. So new image will get same transformation and positioning as the prevoius one. Just image content is replaced. Is there any similar in Affinity photo? Explanation: I have several layers. In the bottom layer I want to replace the image with another image of same size. How can I easily replace that? This step I need multiple times. I need to replace that single image and print the document, then replace the image again and print the document and so on. Thanks...
  5. Hi, im new to Affinity and I like it a lot. In photoshop when you drag a file from folder directly onto a canvas youre working on - it resizes to the same size as canvas which is very convenient In Affinity photo when you drag it it keeps its original size and its very painful to resize it each time. Also sometimes it simply gets pasted somewhere outside the canvas and its not even easy to locate it. Is there any way to drag the file onto canvas and make it resize to fit it?
  6. When i try to import from photo library my app crashes.
  7. Hi Suppose I copy and page an image into my affinity photo document. By default it is put on to a new layer of the type "image layer". This is useful because I can shrink the image or stretch it using the move tool and all the original pixels are remembered if I stretch or scale the image again layer later - it is not resampled like Photoshop. My question is, after shrinking the image layer, is it possible to restore it to the original size it was when it was first pasted in to my document? At the moment I can only get it to roughly its original size/aspect ration by guess work. If I make it even slightly bigger than it was originally, it will become pixellated. Thanks.
  8. I wish to produce a table that includes cells with text and images in them, and wrap the text around the images. This means the following: One cell has text and an image inside it (the image is inside the table's cell in addition to the text) The text inside the cell wraps around the image inside the cell Repeat this process for other cells Is this possible, and if so, by what means?
  9. The current process of using a the Pinning Studio to place images floating with text or in-line with text could see some more streamlining. I would like to see a new handle appear when you select an image or image frame. This handle could then be used to click drag an image to a particular position in/ relative to the text. For simple operations, this would circumvent the use of the Pinning Studio and would therefore save users from having this studio open or to have to open it in the first place.
  10. When placing an image, the fill colour of my image frames disappears in Publisher when the file is linked. The first file is copied from the web and pasted into the image frame. The second image is saved to disk and then brought into the frame with the replace image button (I had to actually replace images earlier to retain scale and position). 2022-11-17 17-48-02.mp4 Notice that when the image is deleted, it leaves a white mark where the fill is supposed to be. Removing the stroke of the object gets rid of this, despite not having applied a stroke, nor a stroke colour. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create an image frame that spans the entire page 2. Select the image frame and apply a fill to it 3. Click the replace image button and place an image 4. Notice how the fill colour of the image frame disappears. Image placing policy is set to embedded. This is on Windows 10 19044.2251 (21H2).
  11. I have been trying to convert this PDF to a PNG or JPEG to include in a Wordpress blog post and it keeps looking blurry upon upload. You can see that when I download these, they look normal, but as soon as I put it on a Wordpress post, it gets all blurry, like this: My plan was to put a shadow behind the JPEG or PNG to make it look like a digital download product but I can't get it to look right on a Wordpress post even without a shadow?? I don't know what to do anymore Any help here would be amazing. Random List - PDF Flattened.pdf Random List - PDF High Quality.pdf
  12. OS: Windows 11 Pro 22H2 Firefox: 106.0.5 (64-Bit) Affinity Photo: Some days ago, I started switching my browser from Vivaldi to Firefox. When copying an image in Vivaldi that is opened in a new tab into the clipboard, I was able to paste it into Affinity Photo without problems. In my case, I copy the following image from the website via right-clicking the image and select "Bild kopieren" (Copy image). https://cdn.cloudflare.steamstatic.com/steam/apps/1151640/library_600x900.jpg?t=1593707775 In Affinity Photo I create an empty, white image and paste the image copied from the link into this white image with CTRL+V. This worked for years. Now in Firefox I try to do the same, and it doesn't work. Trying to paste the copied image into the new image only pastes the temporary local link. Creating a new image from clipboard (CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+N) works. But I need the copied image in an existing image. When pasting the image into MS Paint it works as expected. Also, pasting the copied image into MS Word works, too. It seems that it's an issue in Affinity Photo, only. I already asked in a Firefox community if there is a difference in copying an image in Firefox and Vivaldi. But they send me to here. Is there any setting I missed for pasting images from Firefox? What can I do to get the copied image from a website into a blank image in Affinity Photo?
  13. Hello! I work a lot creating videos for social media and sometimes we need to alter the information of the screenshot, so I wanted to know if this is possible. In the example below, I've selected an area and I want to quick import an image to this area with the same size as well, this is possible? Like when you put a image on a mask and want to keep the image size but to replace it. How I do this on Affinity Photo? Cheers,
  14. Hi guys, I have been using affinity to make small flyers or brochures, so I have basic knowledge on affinity. Right now I need to do a catalog with around 500 products, and every week are coming new products. So it is quite important that images stays linked or pinned on the right text with the right sizes; and the tittles change of page correctly. I have already prepared a style text, pinning images and forms. What would be the best practice? Where could I found like a small guide for catalogs. At the moment when I added a new product sometimes the image scale change, Dont know why and this take me a lot of time to correct again and I need to move manually the tittles that fit with the products. Thanks a lot!!
  15. I just got the a7iv recently and for every single photo I uploaded was distorted, cropped and just blown out looking when importing to Affinity photo. I have been looking heavily on the internet and have not found similar problems. I have my camera set to RAW. .ARW is Sonys format. All help would be appreciated. On my camera the photos look fine and in photos it looks fine as long as I don't import them. If I import the photos they just turn out grey as shown in the pictures.
  16. I know I used to be able to change the blend mode of single image before, but for some reason I can't get it to work anymore. I can change the blend mode of an adjustment layer, but not the image itself. Is there a setting I need to change I'm not aware of or is this a new feature in AP? I've attached some screenshots to better explain. Can someone please help me with this?!
  17. On MacBook Pro 16" Intel, macOS 11.6.7, Affinity Photo and Publisher 1.10.5 with Apple Cinema Display 30" (notebook screen closed) In Preferences I've changed Performance Settings for Hardware Acceleration, Display and Rendering but situation is not affected. Attaching the documents did not work in this form, so I have uploaded then here for you to download: https://www.gidman.ch/downloads/support/affinity_support_220615.zip 01 When I place the document created in Photo into Designer the appearance changes; it gets more contrast and is darker. See Screenshot: 01_affinity_photo_document_placed_in_publisher_is_darker.jpg 02 If I quit the programs and reopen the Publisher document, the Photo document image is displaying at a much lower resolution. Occasionally I can get it to display with higher resolution if I right click over the image, while the image layer is not selected, and wait a moment. See screenshot: 02_publisher_low_res_display_of_affinity_photo_document.jpg Your assistance is appreciated, kind regards PS: I was not able to use my Affinity Store account here in the forum, is this normal?
  18. I just purchased the program today after using the free trial. I would like to make my image's background transparent. It's not an image background per se because it does not have layers. I would just like to be able to make the selection of the white background and turn it transparent so I can use the logo on any image or website with any kind of background color. Thank you in advance!
  19. Publisher 1.10.4 on Windows 10 and 11 crashes when I select an inserted image and attempt any action on it such as moving it or clicking on the 'float with text' icon. Is there a crash report somewhere in the system? Where would it be located? Would it help to change the persona to Photo? Will this bug be fixed very soon?

  22. I need to fill shapes with images, in Designer. I've watched a tutorial which instructs me to create the Shape and then drag the desired Image (already in the working space) up onto the Shape. In the tutorial, the shape fills with the image on both the Artboard and the Context dashboard . However, when I try the same actions, nothing happens. See screen-shots below. I have a project due TODAY. Need an answer ASAP pls. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!
  23. Hi, when I import my PNG logo it gets pixelated regardless of dimensions I import. The same png logo looks great on my web page and other materials. I also use it in Sketch3 App and it looks great as well. Any Ideas what do I do wrong?

  25. I have a Newsletter that I have been working on for some time, including several images. Today I was attempting to insert another image into a textbox. I used the following procedure: In the Layers panel, ensure that I am in the correct text box. Locate the position in the text to insert the image and double-click. Use File > Place to locate and load the image to be inserted. Select the image with the move tool and ensure it is identified as active in the Layers Panel. Click on the Foat Text button in the context toolbar. This does not always seem to have any effect, the image still sits above the text, or sometimes it seems to have become almost fully transpaent. With the image layer selected and with the move tool selected, use the Shift-Arrow keys to move the image to the right place. At this point Publisher crashes. Despite always attempting this process the same each time, i sometimes find that the image gets loaded outside the text box and I have to explicitly move it into the text box layer. Having successfully re-located the image this does not seem to affect the crashing - it crashes whether it needed re-locating or not. Here is the Dump file: 2f6e1f30-107c-4d91-9e2a-b2fb573e2c96.dmp Here is the .afpublish file: FOCWNews44 Autumn Winter 2021 v10.1.afpub And here is the image I am trying to place and move: I do not have Hardware Accelleration active. I am using Publisher 1,10.4 (latest update). John
