    Xmas cookies/gingerbread

    In case you have to bake cookies, here are some christmas theme cookies as vector assets (thus you can change or add things to your likes), for reusage in Affinity Photo & Designer & Publisher. xmas_cookies.afassets Have a nice time!
  2. Affinity Photo. Windows 10 - 64 bit I have to draw many lines to make a drawing. I selected the "pen" tool with the "lines" modality and the "Add new curve to the selected object" option, which should cause all curves drawn after to end on one level. Does not work. Each curve I draw creates a new level, and I find myself having to manually "compact" all the layers one by one. Any suggestions? Thanks! I enclose an example screen.
  3. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question - can anyone help me with what edits I can make to picture A so that it looks like picture B? Picture B is actually Apple's RAW algorithm on my RAW file while viewing it in the file explorer and picture A is just my RAW file. I'm only a photo editing novice so I'm wondering if anyone else can help. Main thing I'm looking for help on is the face. Somehow Picture B looks very naturalistic, smoother, crisper, all at the same time while bringing out details that don't really even seem to exist in the RAW file. Thanks in advance for any help
  4. I've got a text in a shape (a double star) and I want to put it partly over a jpg. The shape sits on top as expected, but the text which should be over the jpg doesn't appear. The text outside the jpg appears okay. Publisher 1.7.3.481 on Windows 10.

  6. Please keep the entered search term when switching between the different stock archives. At the moment the search term is cleared and has to be reentered whenever you switch to another archive which makes browsing really cumbersome.
  7. Is there a way to show the recent paintbrushes used? Similar to how the color chooser shows recent colors?
  8. Hi all! I'm new to Photo, having switched just this week from Photoshop. I"m not sure what the setting would be called, but it allowed me to choose how much my paintbrush would switch between my primary and secondary brush colors. It could be found in the same setting that choosing how much hue jitter there is. I assumed it would be found in the same place in Photo. I have found the hue jitter, but no primary/secondary paint color jitter. Anyone know where I can find this setting? Thanks so much! Sevan
  9. When I try to resize a picture frame, the content inside the frame is also getting stretched/distorted. Is this how it works on Affinity? Or it's a bug?
  10. So... first thing is. I love your software. I pay your software. I recommend your software. And I depend on your software! But... "Access to the document´s file was lost while performing..." isn´t something I don´t expect from one second to another from your software! I do save every 5 Minutes, and i do versions when software is new and project is important. But this time 8hours of work are gone. And I am trying to get help here for 3 hours. But maybe your are on BREXIT already ? - nobody is responding I did try every trick I know ... copy and save the file to another drive... rename it... open/ import it into designer or publisher... open it with one of the new betas... NOTHING WORKED! (missing autosave & Incremental save option)
  11. Hi, I post this in the bug section as asked by @Callum , some aren't bugs but annoying behaviours (1 & 2). For the first time I used APub — .502, I missed the last update — for a small project at work: a wish card with photo and a small amount of text for yesterday*. (I begined the project on ID, and decided to test using APub, importingthe IDML file). One of the most annoying part was needing to select "All pages" when exporting to PDF. The last option used should stay selected, or "All pages" should be the first option (= always selected), or it should be part of the preset for export. Unless working on small documents, the clients and we want PDF by pages, not by spreads, and it's easier to display a PDF as a book with a 2 pages view than trying to display or print half a spread! Please, modify this default behaviour. Another really annoying part: I worked on the photo in AP, and saved the Affinity file, and exported various stages of the images to test and compare. Thoses images cames from differents folder for this project, and I had to work on other images for other projects, with images in other folders too. Each time I had to check where I saved the AP file or AP exports, since Affinity apps are unable to propose by default to save a file or the exported ones in its original folder! It's really a pain. Please, the apps should by default use the same folder as the opened image/file, or, if another folder was selected for this file, keep on with this new path for this file. We shouldn't waste time searching folders for ours files. On opening a document with linked images, APub display an error message about missing images, but it seems it's not accurate. There's no missing linked files in the Ressources manager. Perhaps it should wait a little longer for the linked file to be checked or downloaded? Same problem with overflow when exporting to PDF. If those files or the overflowing text aren't on pages but somewhere on the canvas, those messages shouldn't occur). When using the "replace image" feature, please, don't display the new image at 2000% (72 PPI display)! I used 300PPI images, and when replacing one by another of the same size (variation) or similar (300PPI), it should be at the same size and position, no time to waste resizing it. After importing the IDML file, there's no choice, and the images are embedded. The same image embedded 5 times but with no modification, will be exported 5 times! It should be linked to the same file. (For example, after duplicating few pages to modify some elements). Linked/embedded option shoud be an app parameter in the preferences, a setting when creating new document set to preference parameter, and if we open a PDF or an IDML, the app should ask from the start to link (and export if needed) or embed the files. The app should use relative pathes, and be able to retrieve the linked files if the folder structure is similar (for example, after unzipping an archive on another computer or, copying for archiving the folder on another storage). I don't know why, but after importing a PDF, when I modified the imported project (single pages) to facing pages, the 1st and the last pages had the width of a spread instead of the width of a page. [edit] The app doesn't process well and hangs doing fast shortcuts for actions needing to display some info as in "ctrl+s" (save) followed by "ctrl+shift+alt+s" (export). [/edit] I hadn't time to take notes, and hope each behaviour can be reproduced * Usually we've got a planning, but bosses don't mind plannings and there's always more urgent than urgent than planned work to do…
  12. Please bear with me as I am new to the forum. I have spent a great deal of time looking through the ipad forum for Photo. I found posts that are approximately 2 yrs old. This has not been helpful. I want to be able to select the parameters for a paint brush, opacity, feather, etc and using my Apple Pencil, see exactly WHERE I am painting or modifying the photo (like painting in or out.) I don’t know how you can do accurate work without such feedback from the brush. The forums have been clambering for this ability. This request has either died with Affinity Photo people or I just have not found the necessary setting, in which case I apologize and request some assistance.
  13. Mac desktop apps. Running both up to date designer and photo. I read in the Affinity help sections that all Affinity files can be opened in any Affinity app. But when I go to open a afphoto file in afdesign half the layers are missing from the afphoto file. Back story I designed a vector logo in afphoto and just bought afdesign over Black Friday. But the logo is not importing 100% into afdesign. If I click and drag the missing layer from photo over to the design window, That won't work either. Any help thanks. MTN Logo Square 2020 Final.afphoto

  15. Hello, I use Affinity Photo on my MacBook Pro, Retina running MacOS Mojave. I'm having problems with affinity randomly crashing, sometimes I can even start it, it'll crash right away. I can't really identify an origin,… sometimes it crashes when I'm painting fast, sometimes even when I was looking at the painting/zooming out. My ram should be fine, I have around 20GB+ storage space and I never downloaded brushes or any other plugin. Already tried to reinstall and restart my Mac. I never had that before, just in the last two months, of the one year+ I'm working with Affinity. I hope someone knows more, or at least can tell me if Affinity Photo has Autosave (can't find it anywhere), so at least I can breathe. Thanks in advance, Vivi
  16. Hey guys, I‘ve just startet working with Affintiy Photo and I‘m wondering if there is any option to feather the selection by using the smart oder the flood selection tool.

Cheers, Leo

  19. Hi, on starting any of the affinity apps they crash and will not open. I have deleted the apps and reinstalled. No difference. I have deleted the container files. No difference. I have given the apps all full disk access. No difference. And each time I restarted. The error reports are attached. Thanks, Peter Affinity Photo [582] crash file ProcessAffinity Designer [763]
  20. Hi, I recently purchased Publisher and have an issue when I search for stock images. They take a long time to load and then everything freezes within the programme. When I scroll the images and more try to load the same thing happens. They do load eventually but it very slow and not entirely usable like this. I have also noticed that in certain situations, similar freezes happen with the Photo app too. I am using a fairly new laptop with an i7 processor and 16gb GB ram, and I do not experience lag/freezing issues within other programmes. Any help would be appreciated, Thank you.
  21. Hello Wondering if anyone can help me solve this issue. Im a new user of Affinity photo but have used Photoshop for some years. After loading in a few images ( Canon Raw CR2 file) i noticed the quality ( sharpness) was markedly reduced from the original even before any editing had taken place, the image appeared soft. After editing and export (PSD bilinear) the image was further degraded. I carried out the same process in Photoshop it was clear to me that the Photoshop export was less effected than that from Affinity. In addition the export file from Affinity was at least twice as large as that from PS. I've attached photos comparing PSD outputs from PS vs( Affinity Screenshot 2) and the untouched image in Faststone image viewer vs Affinity (screenshot 1). These are screen captures from my Dell XPS 4k screen. In particular view the area around the eyes and hair. Hope someone can help. sophie
  22. Originally published in 1897 as A Mad Song, Wandering Aengus (or The Golden Apples of the Sun) has been popular set to music, and it's haunted my since I first learnt it in the seventies. This image is a composite of two Unsplash photos, woodland by John Westrock and girl by Dylan Nolte. Sparkles, vignette and other fiddly bits by yours truly. I went out to the hazel wood, Because a fire was in my head, And cut and peeled a hazel wand, And hooked a berry to a thread; And when white moths were on the wing, And moth-like stars were flickering out, I dropped the berry in a stream And caught a little silver trout. When I had laid it on the floor I went to blow the fire a-flame, But something rustled on the floor, And someone called me by my name: It had become a glimmering girl With apple blossom in her hair Who called me by my name and ran And faded through the brightening air. Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun. The originals (reduced):--
  23. Yet another issue with selection refinement. Refine selection with output to new layer is completely broken. Steps to reproduce: 1. Use the selection brush to make a selection 2. Refine selection witht the Matte brush 3. Choose output to "New layer with mask" and apply 4. Switch off the mask, the new pixel layer is completely destroyed. It shows the traces of the Matte brush Sadly this is just one more issue with refining selections. Come on Serif, you should put a lot more effort in improving this function. PS is much more reliable here. AP 1.7.3.481 Windows 10
  24. Hi i’m still getting around using Affinity Photo. Trying to copy vector graphics from Designer and paste into Photo. Is this doable? TIA
  25. In the main menu, the position of Text and Document in Publisher is reversed from Photo (and Publisher Photo Persona), which is very difficult to use. I want you to unify this. Personally, the layout of Publisher is intuitive and easy to use. In Illustrator and InDesign, the menu positions of Format and Object are reversed and difficult to use, but Adobe does not fix it at all. I believe Serif will fix it.
