  1. Hello, I try to import new pencils but I can't see them in the pencil's menu. I though that was a mistake (they hadn't really import or something) so I did the import process again and Affinity Photo show up that they have been succesfully imported but adding a number at the end (I did it 3 times already ). I guess that is because the pencils already existed but I can't see any of them. I got differents pencils imported succesfully but I cant with these ones. I download them again, restart PC and nothing. It is supousse that they are there, but I can't pick them. If I can't really import them, there is a way to erease them? Because it is suppose that they are there as Affinity Photo say... can I find them in any folder and erease them? http://steaz.altervista.org/affinity-designer-free-brushes-ropes-leaves-laurel/ These are the pencils. Than you.
  2. Hi There, I purchased Affinity Designer last week and i'm hoping to use it as a replacement for Illustrator in the future. One of the things that i'm testing now is the importing of workfiles, made in Illustrator. The import of AI files goes surprisingly well! All layers that were made can be found in Affinity and non outlined text is editable. I was hoping to archieve the same result with EPS files, but that's not the case: there is only 1 layer with all elements in separated sublayers. And non outlined text is outlined. When i make a new file in Affinity, export it as an EPS and then open the file in Illustrator (cs 5.5), the elements are visible but the document size is not the same as the root document. Also color swatches are not preserved (same goes for importing EPS and AI to Affinity) These mentioned things might become a problem when working with other companies who use Illustrator. But i'm new on this, so maybe you can help me with these questions. Thanks a lot! Marcellus
  3. I'm unable to import any image into Affinity Designer. I select the 'Place Image Tool', then choose an image (in this case a standard jpeg file), then nothing — I'm not given the open to place the image in the document. Restarting the application or machine does not fix the issue. Affinity Designer 1.6.1 Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6 image-import.mov

    PDF import bug

    Hi guys, I have a problem with pdf file import. When opened inside the Affinity Designer the text gets messed up. :/ Check out the attached files: p01.pdf p01.pdf
  5. When I import swatches using the “Import Palette…” item, I should be able to select palettes saved from Photoshop (ACO – Adobe Photoshop Color Swatch File) or Illustrator (ASE – Adobe Swatch Exchange File). Are there foreign palette formats that AD can import? Maybe that information should be in the Open dialog box… or somewhere. (The Help Center doesn’t seem to do anything. I can search for a topic like “palette,” but can’t expand the results, so maybe the AD entries are just stubs?)
  6. Hi, I have “import from photos” on iPad Pro 2017 and add on a Folder in Affinity Photo but when I return on I file the app alert me: file removed from iPad! I’m not delete the file. Can you help me? Thanks Cristian
  7. This is my first time trying to import RAW photos to edit in Affinity. I've copied the photos from my camera (Fujifilm xa3) to my desktop, then opened in Develop Persona. I can't figure out why the images appear almost blank - they are mostly white with a few coloured pixels, and the image is changed to a square. What am I doing wrong?? Please help!
  8. I have an M50 and when I attempt to import to my iPad Pro via the lightening card reader, all I see are the video files. I have tried shooting in both the CR and CR3 Formats Any help here would be appreciated
  9. I recently started using Affinity Photo and found I could not preview the RAW files from my Lumix GX8 camera prior to import. Is there a way I can do this? Thank you for any assistance.

    Brush import issues

    I just purchased Affinity Photo and am seeing issues already. Brush import is not working properly/well. 1) Brush shape in AP ties to brush roundness in PS. Brushes imported into AP with a certain roundness retain the setting value under the Shape parameter. However the Shape parameter in AP does nothing. You can move the Shape setting from left to right and roundness/shape of the brush is unaffected. I have a cloud brush (attached) with a roundness of 36, it looks properly squashed in PS, it is unaffected and full size in AP. Assigning the value upon import indicates that the Shape parameter should do what the Roundness parameter does (otherwise why import the value?) but the FUNCTION of the Shape parameter is not the same as the roundness function in PS. 2) PS has functionality where a control like Rotation is set with a value of 0 for control based upon direction but it still functions (as long as some control type is assigned to the control). In AP, the value imports as 0, but a zero value shuts off the dynamic even if a control type is assigned. In order to get proper behavior, export should not disable the dynamic if a control type is assigned but the control value is 0, and should only disable the control if the control type is None. 3) Resetting the brush values doesn't set them back to original imported default values. 4) Import of the "spacing" value needs to be adjusted (see attached PSD) to achieve similar results to a brush's performance in photoshop, or maybe this is caused by #5: 5) Flip X jitter and Flip X jitter aren't present in AP. There is no substitute that I can see in any of the brush settings that will give the same effect. Brushes with this characteristic checked in PS behave very differently in AP. This kind of randomness is essential in order for a foliage brush or a cloud brush to look natural by avoiding repetition. (See cookie-cutter effect in attached photoshop file.) I attached brush files (imported and original) and a PSD file showing AP behavior vs PS behavior. The differences are night and day and the brush import is not usable in its current state. In the PSD, the AP brush behavior is above and the PS behavior is below. BrushBug.psd Bug Brushes.afbrushes OneCloudBrush.abr
  11. Photos has a new habit of crashing when I’m trying to load RAW files. Using an iPad Pro and importing from a sony a6500. At first the RAW (not even raw+JPEG files) are loading as PNGs in the regular persona. Now when I try loading the same file it crashes. Any ideas?
  12. Hello all, I am trying to edit RAW files from my sony a6500. Affinity is showing the files as RAW when I go to import, but only about half the time are the photos actually loading as a RAW in the develop module. Sometimes they do, sometimes they dont, there doesnt seem to be any pattern or consistency. Any thoughts? Thanks.
  13. When importing an AI (Adobe Illustrator) file the guides are excluded from the import. This is pretty bad since many (printing) companies supply AI formated templates that only consists of guides, artboards and empty layers - none of that is imported by AD ... are there plans to improve that? Cheers, Timo
  14. The people of School of motion are a big fan of affinity and today they posted this very detailed and wonderful tutorial on how to export from Affinity Designer® to Adobe® After Effects@. It may seem a little bit cumbersome, but I think it's worth it...specially if you try to avoid illustrator. The link: https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/save-affinity-designer-vector-files-after-effects Have a nice one! B.
  15. Hi there, I've been trying to import Photoshop .abr brush sets, into Affinity Photo for iPad, so far without success. I'm using an iPad Pro, latest vs. I've tried importing from the following locations: icloud Google Drive Dropbox All files are greyed out and not selectable. I can confirm I don't have Adobe Sketch installed, which I read in earlier posts was causing issues with importing brushes. Any suggestions would be appreciated! PS. It's a very impressive program, great job!
  16. Hi! I have trouble importing RAW-files to my iPad Pro (12,9, 2nd gen) running iOS 10. I have uploaded NEF-files to Google Drive from my Nikon D300. The problem is that they won't open. If I try to open them from GD with the "open in app"-command, nothing happens. And if I navigate to GD from within Affinity Photo the NEF-files are greyd out and cannot be opened. I tried to send a file to iCloud Drive but it too is grey and cannot be opened. I converted one of the files to a jpeg. and it opened just fine from GD. Looking forward to your reply, thanks! - Tuukka
  17. Hi all! I got a serious problem with some jpeg files after importing them. I tried to open a jpeg of a Corona sixpack (no promoting intended) in AP and this happens. Most parts of the photo are missing and the missing parts are transparent. Any ideas?? The issue is not present if I first open the jpeg in any other software and convert it to .png but I would really like to safe the time bc I work on thousands of photos... (sorry if a similar issue has already been posted and I missed it)
  18. Hello, confusion reigns. I am importing jpeg images from Olympus 16meg micro 4/3 camera to iPad using SD card adaptor and wirelessly using Cascable. When I view file size in iPad Photos using the app EXIF Wizard Pro it tell me they are about 2meg. In iPad files it tell me same file size 2meg. When I open these same JPEGs in Affinity and then export them the file size is 9meg, this is the file size I would expect. I have tried this with both raw and jpeg imports and jpeg only imports. Am I getting confused with thumbnail images and full resolution images when I query the file size? As mentioned I am getting 2meg file size in both Iphoto and in Files. is the image size being artificially increased when it is put into Affinity. is the app only giving me the size of the thumbnail and Affinity automatically open full resolution image? any thoughts greatly appreciated. David
  19. I can't open ai or eps files exported from Rhino3D. These files work fine with Illustrator, but when I open them on Affinity Designer I only get a blank canvas with one layer. The canvas aspect ratio is coincident with the expected information, but I can't find the vector work. Thanks Rua.EPS Rua.AI

    SVG Import/Open issues

    Hello, I have exported two SVGs in two different ways. I am running 1.6.1 on OSX and have some issues 1. via MATLAB - This imports fine but there is a curve mask which covers the real content of the image. I can delete the mask, but its pretty annoying to have to do this, and I spent a good half an hour trying to figure out if my image was even there. 2. via Python (using matplotlib) - The file is 50mb, not sure if this is the issue...but basically Affinity designer just hangs indefinitely. The plot was generated with https://matplotlib.org/api/_as_gen/matplotlib.pyplot.pcolormesh.html which I believe increased the size. (This is a big issue for me) - Smaller plots which just include a basic contour plot work just fine.
  21. Hi, I'm using artboards in a document that contains all my graphics for our web-site. On the web we use SVG. Hence, I drag & drop some SVG files into AD and export from there. When adding an SVG via drag & drop, it gets added to the artboard as [Embedded document]. Some questions: How can I copy such a thing? When I do it the normal way and I edit the copy, the original gets changed too. Is there a way I can convert the embedded document into a normal group? Any documentation available about embedded documents? How to best edit these etc.?
  22. I'm trying to add an image to an existing image. Whenever I import the image, it completely fills the existing image and can't be resized. So I created an additional image (afphoto file) because files in the afphoto format can be resized. However, when I complete the following steps nothing is shown on the screen. If I use the square tool and try to paste the new image inside a created field, nothing happens except the square field remains.
  23. Hi, I have a specific .AI file that imports completely empty in AD (and AP). The file imports fine in a friend's Illustrator and, if she saves it in the latest AI version, it then loads fine in AD. Is there a support email address I can send the AI file to in hopes that Affinity can spot the problem and improve the importer? Many thanks!
  24. Please see the attached file. The clipped artwork in the center is rendered on the AD canvas as if it were ~80% transparent, even though that shouldn't be the case. None of the layers imported by AD have a transparency assigned to them (as far as what is visible goes) so there's no way of making it "solid". Adding a white background renders the colors as they were intended. CPSA Flag.pdf
