  1. Hi, I'm new to Affinity Photo. I have now tested different things and when my testing period is over I will probably leave my "old" editing program :-) but ... I have two questions right now: 1: I couldn't work with layer masks in the latest version, but when I downloaded an earlier version then it worked perfectly. Why? (I have macOS Mojave 10.14.6) 2: I open a photo that has 300ppi, I make some adjustments and when I save / export it, regardless of file extension, it's only at 72ppi. How do I keep the resolution 300ppi? I hope to hear from you soon :-)
  2. Hi there! Wasn't sure where to post this but I noticed a difference between the iPad and Desktop version. Earlier, I realized that my file was the wrong PPI in Designer for iPad and wanted to change it. I went into "Resize" and when I changed the PPI, the doc size also changed. At first, I didn't realize that "Resample" was resizing the dimensions bc it's on by default. Do you think it might make sense to have that option off by default, since "PPI" and "Dimensions" work independent of one another on the Desktop when you initially open the Setup? Just a thought. Thanks for all the a
  3. Like many people, I've struggled with PPI/DPI and how they affect print quality. The discussions I've seen here are usually actually about PPI and include the advice, "You don't need to worry about DPI unless you're talking about printing," and then they don't mention printing again. But printing is exactly what I'm interested in. I think I have a grasp of the fact that AP says DPI when it means PPI, and that I don't need to worry about what DPI AP says my image has until I'm ready to print. But when I am ready to print, I don't see anyplace to specify what DPI I'd like in my print. It's
  4. I need to submit a photo to a website and was told to submit it at 300 ppi (not dpi). First of all, I am not sure what does 300 ppi mean in terms of actual picture dimensions. And as far as I can tell, currently there is no ppi option in AP. Is there a way that I can ensure that a photo is at least 300 ppi on AP using the options currently available such as resizing the document or exporting? Thanks for any suggestions or help on this matter?
  5. Hi, I just watched this Youtube Video about how to set up an Illustrator template for designing t-shirts for Merch by Amazon. The setup in Photoshop should be: 15"W x 18"H @ 300ppi (i.e. 4500 x 5400 pixels), sRGB, less than 25MB. So in the video, he says that Illustrator has PPI and Photoshop has DPI and so he sets the Illustrator document at 1080 by 1296 @ 300ppi and then says that it will export to the correct size for Photoshop (to 4500 x 5300 pixels @ 300ppi) So he exports the Illustrator document (set at 1080 x 1296) as a png, opens it up in Photoshop and the dimen
  6. There is a discussion on PPI vs DPI in the Questions and Feedback section. After discussion and consideration, I'd like to make an official feature request. In the User Interface section of the Preferences in both Designer and Photo, I request that you include a checkbox to change the default DPI setting of documents to PPI. I understand a portion of your staff believe DPI is an appropriate choice, so it could be set to DPI by default, and every one who feels strongly that it should read PPI could have a customization option to change their user experience within the software. I feel that'
  7. I'm making my letter on Twitter and Facebook "open" because I'd really like to see this addressed. I believe the issue at hand is also more relevant to a "bug", since the correct term is PPI and not DPI. You've responded to this issue in the forums, but I'm considering this topic an error that I feel many users would like corrected. Please consider making this change. Thank you. "Respectfully, I believe ignoring the significant difference between PPI and DPI is a huge mistake, and an irresponsible choice for a company that does what yours does. I understand you feel this is addressed.
  8. Why in the Document resize window is the resolution referred to as DPI, when it should be PPI DPI is Dots per inch, which is a measurement of PRINT resolution. PPI is Pixels per inch is image resolution and what it should be. This is a fundamental error. For credibility reasons this needs to be changed.
  9. Hi Everyone, New here so hope I am doing this all in the right place and what not! I am using Affinity Photo on the Mac (waiting patiently for my beloved Windows to be able to have it!) Version 1.4.2 I have noticed that whenever I open an image it automatically changes its original size and the PPI changes to 96, the images should all be at least 300ppi. I have tried multiple images with multiple formats and it is the same every time? Am I missing something as obviously I want to work on the original 300ppi not a 96ppi version? Thanks in advance! Billie
  10. When creating a new image there's a drop down with the label "DPI". This is incorrect, images doesn't have DPI (it's a printer unit), they have PPI.
