  1. I did a lot of reading as well as exploring within AP, but couldn't find the correct info to help me, so I'm posting here. Forgive the amount of info, but at least you'll know what I'm driving at. Please bear with me. I have a PSD template I use for colorizations in PS. I would like to open that (or any other preexisting file) in AP and maintain all layers, associated masks, colors, and clipped adjustment layers, as well as groups, blending options, etc. What I'm getting is that the groups seems ok. I noticed that the icon displays effects of what is within that group, whereas i
  2. Hey guys, Does anyone know if Photoshop 2017 can open svg text as editable text? I really hate Photoshop, I really love Affinity, but I still need some way to provide psd files to some of my clients. So I noticed that if I export text as SVG from Affinity, I can keep it as text, and if I inspect it in any browser, I will get the exact info of the font ( font family, size, color, weight, style, line heights, everything). Can I import such a SVG containing text into Photoshop 2017 and see it as editable text in Photoshop? Did anyone try this? I would pay like an idiot for a Phot
  3. Hello! I'm a Capture One user. I've been exporting tiff files & doing heavy retouching in AP before rounding back to finish color edits/crops/batching in C1p. Then i saw this and I'm wondering if i should: a) switch to PSDs assuming they're "better" b) continue using tif files because they work just fine c) ask you guys why the 2 best Adobe competitors aren't working together on making this workflow C1p-AP-C1p using afphoto files I'm going to be honest. If Serif wastes development funds on pushing a Lightroom competitor into an overcrowded market (rather than a le
  4. Layer Effects settings don't stay the same when exported to PSD (preserve editability). This is also the case with some of the other settings like Gaussian Blur. See the settings shift in the attached screenshots. This makes the export to PSD unpredictable especially when I am trying to then send these files to my clients. Thanks for your help.
  5. Hello Iv just started using Affinity Photo to composite my renders. When I go to export a PSD file choosing any preset, I get a error and it fails to export? System: Windows 7 64bit pro 32gb ram 5930k cpu gtx 780 6gb Thanks, Dan
  6. I love Affinity Photo. I am about to cancel my Adobe subscription. But if there were one thing above all else that I would love Affinity to do for me it would be this. If I open a Photoshop document or a TIFF or whatever format it may be and work on it and then hit save I would like it to save in that same format rather than forcing me to going to export and export in the same format it came in in and then say yes I do want to overwrite the old version. I'm a fan of the Affinity format but I use ACDSee to organise my photographs and although it renders a preview it cannot output full-size JPEG
  7. Hi, How can you use Affinity Photo or Designer to make responsive images? If you have hero or jumbotron my guess is you need to make an image of a different size for all screen sizes using the same image. But what is workflow in Affinity Photo or Designer? Also how can PSD files play a role in all of this?
  8. Hello, I'm having an issue opening PSD files created in Adobe Photoshop CC2018 via Affinity Photo v1.6.6. I get a parse error when attempting to open the file, I couldn't seem to find any documentation of what exactly the error is referring to? Thanks! Connor
  9. I received some psd files from a designer for me to turn into websites and text is randomly garbled on opening. I did not have this issue with 1.5.x but since the 1.6.x update it happens all the time. Is there an easy fix for this? I don't have photoshop and rely on Affinity to do my work. If I open in Affinity Designer the text is not garbled so it is clearly an issue with Affinity Photo. See attached screenshot.
  10. Hello, I never worked with smart layers before. I'm working on a psd file that has smart layers. I need to place some images in/within a smart layer. I managed to do this with one image but now with the second layer I can't replicate the same thing with another image. See the screenshot and the layer outlined in red (Image-1). How do I get the same with the layer (Image-2) beneath it, so that the Image-2 and Double Click Here is also filled up with the image I want to place in the layer. I tried looking at the history and tried copy and pasting the image on the layer but I can't ge
  11. Hello, According to the marketing site I know Affinity Photo can open .psds but to what extent is the compatibility? For example I have Affinity Designer on desktop and it opens .psds just fine but if i were to export a design file with text back to Photoshop it gets rasterized. Is Affinity Photo (iPad or desktop app) the same way? Thanks
  12. Why can't I just save an image as either TIFF, PSD or even JPG after the Develop Persona. Why this complicated Export Persona? Adobe at least got that right. This is a struggle every time. I'm sorry but I'm giving up on this.
  13. Hello everybody, I am desperatly trying to edit a normal vector .psd file (no smart object) . Unfortunately erveytime I open the file, I get an ugly bitmap image. The different layers appears correctly, but I am not able to get a pixelfree image (=vector image). I already tried to take .ai copy of the file, unfortunately it didn´t worked out neither. How can I load a.psd vector file without any quality loss? Any clue someone? Thanks in advance!
  14. Hello, Affinity Designer is great app for designing but also great for Website and App Mockup but why I can't export PSD as editable text this is a really important feature for only this function I need to go back to PS every time I do Website or App Mockup because 90% of my clients want Mockup in PSD with editable text if this feature is not available please implement this as soon as possible ( I search a 2-year-old post requesting this feature) and I say goodbye to PS and AI. Also if anyone knows any workaround for this please help me.
  15. Hello, Using Windows version of Affinity Photo. I am having inconsistency issues with exporting. I use Capture One as a starting point. Capture One does not recognise Affinty Photo format so need to use PSD to manage my images. I Export an image as PSD to Affinity Photo from Capture One. Then I create a selection and save the pixel selection as a Spare Channel. Here the problems begin. If I use the Export Persona and select PSD (Preserve Editability) preset then the spare channel selection is preserved when I reopen the PSD file as expected.
  16. When importing a psd-file with textlayers with "Nunito type font", not rasterized, the text is messed up. When importing the file with "text rasterized" everthing is as intended. I have the feeling that the Nunito font itself could be the reason, the text layer with an arial black font seems ok (this text layer is not displayed by default) I submit the psd file as an attachment. PS i'm using the latest version, just released a couple of days ago in a Windows 10 enviroment. Thanks for looking at this and keep up the excelent work logo_m&c_produktie.psd
  17. I'm trying to export a mockup for a site to the dev with all the fonts / styling & spacing intact to PSD since the dev doesn't use Affinity. Been trying various ways to export it and still yields no results - pretty frustrated. Please help, thanks.
  18. Hi everyone, i couldn´t find any information about the psd export funktions in the export dialog for the psd files. so is there anyone who could explain in detail, what they mean, and when to use which export option ? thanks Tom
  19. Does Affinity Photo support 3D Smart Objects in PSD format performing tasks like the ones in the YouTube video for Photoshop link here including DOF effects?
  20. Receive multiple instances of this warning whenever I open a PSD file: Unknown property : VectorOriginationData,keyOriginResolution
  21. Hi Folks, I'm after some help again. I created a very simple and basic logo design in affinity designer and I now want to use a PSD mockup of a van I have and put my design over top of that to show it on the van. I have opened up the Mock up van and my design both in Affinity Photo but the next bit is where it all goes wrong. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the overlay right. I know I will need to use a mask but I really am not very clued up with using them. Can anyone help? Thanks again Mark Oh yeah... Ive attached my two files BCL Co
  22. When exporting to psd with the "preserve editability" option. I get the attached error message. When I export to psd using the "preserve accuracy" option, designer takes way too long, in excess of 20 min)! The file size is 9.5MB.
  23. Hi there I am having some difficulty getting my PSD files to correctly import into 'Kestrel Moons" animation program "Creature". http://www.kestrelmoon.com/creatureforum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=456 That is a link to the conversation I am having with the developer who has been trying to help me get my files to properly import to creature. The PSD does not import at all into Creature and when he imported it into gimp it only imported 1 of 6 layers. That program also has a new function to import spine json files into creature. But it requires a .atlas file to be created as well which d
  24. Hello I am thinking of buying AP/AD, but a prerequisite is that I can combine (without flattening) two psd files. Is this possible?
  25. Hey Affinity, I've been using both Designer & Photo since its beta and I really enjoy it. I have gained nothing but enjoyment and happiness using your software and the progress you make. My only concern about Photo is the lack of smart objects. I understand there's a few posts from last year that mention them, but I'm not sure where this feature sits on your list of things to do as I couldn't see it on either of the roadmaps. It's basically the only thing I need Photoshop for at this point. Ability to read .PSD with Smart Objects instead of flattening the file into a pixel
