  1. I recently bought Photo – almost seemed rude not to at the discounted price – and I’m amazed/daunted at the amount of tools that are in there. It will probably take me a very long time just to get under the surface of what’s possible but I thought I’d give myself a little challenge. I wanted to see if I could do some basic editing and decided to try and de-freckle a photo. I’ve attached the original and result side by side. I didn’t want to totally expunge every single ‘blemish’ and leave the young lady looking like a shop dummy so I tried to leave her skin as I think it could be without the freckles while still having some of the other things that skin naturally has. It’s not perfect by any means but I was very pleased with what I could do in around an hour with just the Blemish Removal Tool (and Undo). I haven’t posted this as any kind of “Look at this great thing I’ve done”, rather I’ve posted it in the hope that people thinking about buying Photo might ask themselves: “If this bloke can do this with no training or artistic talent, just think what could be possible if I got my hands on this.” Note: I have absolutely nothing against freckles. I just chose the photo as it looked like a difficult one to experiment on, which, in the end, it wasn’t because of the tools in Photo.
  2. I was attempting to respond to this post from @RomanNYC trying to apply both vibrance (at -100%) and saturation (100%) to an image. I loaded one of my own images (a jpg) and clicked on Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Vibrance and I got a box with a couple of sliders allowing me to adjust each of these two properties. I downloaded @RomanNYC's image (a png) and then tried to do the same with this image. Photo added a new Adjustment Layer, but no slider box appeared. I have tried double-clicking on the adjustment layer to no avail. As far as I can see, both images are 8-bit sRGB. What gives? John
  3. Hi Affinity, As a member of the Affinity converted with Designer and Publisher, I have used Affinity software for my digital agency and there are presentations of mine in the exec offices of some global automakers. This work used to be done with InDesign but I switched over to Designer two years ago and used multipage artboards to work on my projects. When Publisher Beta came out I was on cloud nine, and then when StudioLink came out I really needed psychotherapy to cure my OCD with Publisher. Such an amazing, groundbreaking workflow. I also took a very deep dive on Photo, the latest store version and also the beta. I have a collection of thousands of Photoshop files and many of them opened up flawlessly. I also love the refined UI. And now rotating brushes are amazing! I seriously don’t know why Photoshop hasn’t done that yet, but consider that it took them many years to enable CMD-Z. You guys had live preview first but they soon adopted that, so it is clear they are watching what you are doing. I would like to come over 100% to Affinity but I have several issues that prevent me from doing so. Also, I do realize that this is a monumental task - Photoshop really is Adobe’s flagship, more so than any of their products. It was easy to switch over to Designer from Illustrator, really easy even with features missing (perspective warp please! - although doing that in StudioLink). Right now I am adept enough at Photo as and use it within a StudioLink context but not standalone and here’s what’s preventing me: Smart Objects. Before I begin, I know Adobe is never going to let you in on Smart Objects. PSD documents that include them will open up with these layers rasterized. But let’s consider that your embedded documents are pretty much there. I can add a Photo or Designer file to Photo or Designer or Publisher and I can edit the document just as I would a smart object, and see live updating on the master document - which is ahead of Photoshop in that regard. Also if it’s a Designer file in Photo I can edit in Designer without leaving Publisher or Photo.) In Photoshop you can only edit a vector with Illustrator). Then with the embedded document I can add a few live filters such as Distort>Perspective - which is a favorite in working in a mockup scenario. As a live filter I can go back and change the settings. I can also add some live blurs and a few other things. Sadly, the other Distort live filters don’t work as they have no effect on the embedded object. If you apply a non-live filter then the embedded document rasterizes, and then this gets destructive especially when placing a vector in a Photo document. I don’t mind converting my Photoshop PSB files (smart object files) to PSD then placing as embedded documents. This way I can have my entire core design and logo files standardized as Affinity vector and raster files, but the inability to do pinching and liquifying and other types of warping and shading stops me from doing this. Also there is no way to take a group of layers in Photo and convert easily to an embedded document. I really love how this works in Photoshop. It’s essential to my work, and this is the main thing keeps me on Photoshop. Hopefully Affinity can continue development here. Brushes. While I was praising brushes in Photo there is one simply itsy bitsy thing that is absolutely essential to my work. I need the brushes labeled with their actual names, as they are done in Photoshop. Photoshop has brush flyout panels - if you extend the panels. I have over two thousand brushes and it’s just too difficult to know what’s what in Photo. Even if there are groups, I can’t tell what the individual brushes are if there are two many. I can hover over the brush and then see if I’ve selected the correct one - this works well if you have a few brushes but not if you have so so many. LUTs. I love the live presets on LUTs. But honestly it is a chore to import them as presets. Also it takes too long to load the adjust layer presets. Photoshop allows you to add all the LUT files to the programs preset folder. Restart photoshop and they are all there. Pattern fills. Oh pattern fills. I keep reading in the forum that this is a badly needed feature and so I am throwing myself into this group. Yes I can work around this and have done so… but why? It’s so easy in Photoshop and I have a library of so many .pat files that I would love to use in Photo, just as I have converted my brushes, color files (with online converters) and gradients. Blend Options. I love your layer blend options UI - really easier to use than Photoshop. But shouldn’t it be part of Layer Effects? I want to add color fills for instance and select the blend options right then and there, so I can see what I’m doing as I can in Photoshop. Feathered masks. If I want to feather a mask in Photoshop I simply go to the mask properties and then adjust the feathering. In Photo I can’t feather a mask that’s been applied to an adjustment effect directly. I have to move the mask to a layer above, then apply a live filter, and then move the mask and its filter under the adjustment effect. I have to do these things all the time and this seems oddly cumbersome.
  4. I'm doing a shirt for a client. He want's the design to wrap from front to back (including sides). How the **** do I do that on Affinity programs???!
  5. Hello everyone! I recently discovered the Affinity Softwares and i'm currently testing them with a lot o interest. Can someone help me with some small issues ? 1 - In Affinity Photo, can i see object outside the canvas, like i can in Designer ? ( didn't find any view modes or clip to canvar there ) 2 - Can i remove the lines in selections ? ( like in photoshop ) Thanks a lot!
  6. I'm running Affinity Photo on Windows 10. Version 1.7.1.404. I'm also a new user of Affinity software. I've got a basic rectangle and I've added 2 live filters: Gaussian Blur Procedural Texture I seem unable to edit either. Double clicking either seems to select the entire group/layer as seen in the attached photo. If I right click on the mask and select "Edit Filter" my entire image just turns white (as if all layers are disabled - even though they're all still checked). I can only get my layers back via UNDO. Side note is the only way I've been able to delete a live filter is to "release it" and THEN delete the new layer. Is there a better/faster way? I can disable the filter with a single click but I try to keep my layers/filters organized and remove the ones I don't need. Thanks!
  7. As a longtime Photoshop user coming into Affinity Photo for pro work I wanted to suggest improvement for Photo's curve adjustment tool. Curves works great but I think the picker tool needs to be able to instantly pick on the curves graph as I click on areas in the picture. Right now I can add points but I have to wiggle left or right in order for the point to be added, and then I might accidentally pull the curve up or down slightly when all I wanted to do was to select a point. Use case for this is that I might want to select all the color areas in a face and protect those ranges. Or select a few area in a landscape and pull all those areas up and down. I mention this because I can easily and quickly do this in Photoshop but this is one of those things where I really struggle with in Photo. However I have an idea for making curves better in Photo than Photoshop. What if I could lasso or shift-select a given range of points I have made in curves? How amazing would that be. Then I can pull a select group of points up or down and this becomes quite powerful. Think of this like the ability to move a selected group of vector points in Designer. You can't do this in Photoshop. Perhaps you can just pull up the points or stretch the selection - I'm referring to all that you can do in Designer with selected vector points.
  8. I used PS forever. It has a sketch remove area for blue or red sketches. Does photo or designer? I didn't see it or overlooked it.
  9. This is a really odd one using Photo V1.7.1.404. It has happened several times. I have a simple image with three four sided shapes (I'll call them panels). They were cloned from one original and have been filled with various colours as I tried to get my image right. Intermittently one of the panels will no longer accept colour changes by any method, flood fill, transparency changes, nothing works. Even more bizarre the colours shown are clearly wrong and even vary. So I select a panel and it shows one set of values, I deselect and then select it again and it shows a different (equally wrong) set of values, yet I have changed nothing. Saving the image exiting and restarting makes no difference. This is not something I have ever seen before. Stability seems better except for this strange behaviour. Once a panel gets into this state, it cannot be modified, the only solution is to ditch it and create a new one. This is more than a little frustrating in an otherwise excellent product.

    Is this where you post success without Adobe?
  11. Hi! I'm struggling to to do this – https://www.dropbox.com/s/npwdnrt7meqdax3/AFT_ScreenRecording - 20190702_1935.mov?dl=0 – in any of Affinity software. Am I missing something? Lack of a solid transform tool feels to me like a deal breaker. Best regards P.
  12. Hey there, I've already in a couple of forum threads about the file size behaviour of Affinity Photo. Unfortunately things still don't quite add up for me. I've got a 10MB NEF RAW file. I've reduced to RGB/8, history is turned off and I also used "Save As" trying to trigger the file streamlining. Still the Affinity Photo file is 112MB. What am I missing? cheers, Torsten
  13. I loaded a black and white jpg line drawing into Affinity Photo with the intention of coloring it. However, the color panel is stuck on grey scale. How do I get a full color spectrum in the color panel with this B&W jpg?
  14. Hello - Guten Tag! I would like to be able to sort the adjustments or hide unneeded. There are a few options there that I'm sure I'll never use, others that I can not judge yet. Therefore, it would be an advantage to post the frequently used adjustments at the top. Ich hätte gerne die Möglichkeit die Anpassungen zu sortieren oder nicht benötigte auszublenden. Es gibt dort einige Möglichkeiten, die ich sicher nie verwenden werde, andere, deren Anwendung ich jetzt noch nicht beurteilen kann. Deshalb wäre es von Vorteil, die häufig benutzten Anpassungen im oberen Bereich zu postieren. Grüße Guzzi
  15. Hi! I have licenses for Designer, Photo and Publisher and really love the new StudioLink function you've added to Publisher. I understand that all your focus has been on finishing Publisher lately,. Now with Publisher released however, will you also update Designer and Photo with the StudioLink functionality? The reason I'm asking is that I do a lot of artwork with both pixel and vector graphics, and just using Pixel Persona in Designer isn't enough for what I need. I also use the Export Persona a lot since the way I work is to make all art for one project in the same document and and setup different export options for all slices and art boards in one go, to have everything organized and easy to tweak and re-export and so on. So the dilemma for me is that: To best edit my art including both pixel and vector graphics I need Publisher and its StudioLink functionality, which is more than awesome. (When opening in Publisher I of course choose not to convert artboards to spreads, since I want to keep the document as is). To export all slices with all their different settings I need the Export Persona however, which can only be found in Designer and Photo so far. I'd love to know if StudioLink is in the pipeline for Designer and Photo as well? If you don't have any plans for this, I'd like to add this as a feature request.
  16. I've been using Photo for about six months and for some reason there persists a number of files only listed (as far as I can tell) in the contextual menu of the Photo application icon in the dock (Mac). When I select one of these files, it opens in Photo and I am able to close the window but the file is still listed in the contextual menu. Perhaps these listed files aren't consuming any system resources but if they are, I would like them removed.
  17. When starting a new document in DESIGNER and PHOTO, if for example you start of with letter size ( 8.5x11 ) but change it to 5x5. The setting doesn't change to custom like it used to. When you then start another new document, it say PRINT/ Letter , but the size is still the old custom size you typed in. You then have to click on a new preset and back to get your original numbers. It not a huge deal , but a bug non the less. Gary

  19. Not a bug per-se, but there's a configuration error in Affinity Designer and Photo's raster brush settings while using "Velocity" to control brush size. I noticed this with previous versions and thought it might be addressed in 1.7, but unfortunately it's not. Using velocity to control the brush size is meant to change the brush size depending on the speed at which you draw. Think gel-pen - the quicker you draw, the thinner the line is, and the slower you draw, the thicker the line is. As it stands, in Affinity, it's more of a slow gradual build up in size regardless of the speed at which you draw - sometimes it doesn't really do anything at all to the size. Procreate's 'Gel Pen' brush is a great example of this, and so is ArtStudio Pro's brushes with velocity enabled. Clip Studio Paint also has it, which I used to demo the feature so that you can better understand what I mean. I've uploaded a quick screen recording of this to YouTube to better show what I mean (below). I've boosted the 'velocity' jitter significantly in CSP just to make it obvious, and I've maxed it out in Designer, but it isn't doing much. The velocity feature is super awesome for getting a digital brush to feel and behave 100% like a real ink pen. Would love to see this realised/fixed in a future update.
  20. I have created macros on one workstation. I then use the export button on the macro panel to individually export each macro. For some reason a file must be open to do so. Once exported I transfer the file to our internal server from which my colleague copies the file to his workstation. He opens a file and then clicks the import button on the macro panel and when he selects one and clicks to import, it crashes. Any ideas?
  21. Was watching a tutorial for AP on Udemy. When the author covered/switched to the Export Personna (he was on a Mac, I'm on Windows), I noticed he had five tabs above the top/left corner of the image window which offered sizing options for the export; i.e. "Export 1x", "Export 2x", "Export 3x", "Revert to auto sized", and the existing size of the image being exported. I have none of those options in 1.7 AP that I can see or find. Is it simply not available in the Win version; or, is there an on/off selection I missed? Thanks in Advance.
  22. Hi all, I have a set of brushes and I go to one. It is a fun speckled spark shape (see attached screenshot) and I changed some dynamics and the size. I want to now save this as a brush to a new brush category but I can't work out how to do that or if it can even be done. Can anyone help at all? Thanks! Phil
  23. Hi guys, I would like to do some simple operations into my masking Affinity Photo, but I can't manage to do it. My project is a simple black filled pixel layer with a mask on it.I would like to duplicate an area selected of this mask with the marquee tool to another part of this same mask. But I can't find a way to do it, the "Drag + Command" operation doesn't seem to work (the selection is moving but isn't duplicated). It is just me or am I doing it wrong ? Thank you !
  24. I'm posting this should anyone face the same issue of the installer failing due to being unable to access the \Affinity\Photo folder. When upgrading to 1.7.0.367 and again just now to 1.7.1.404 the installation failed because even I, as a windows 10 administrator, could not access (view contents or delete) the \Affinity\Photo folder. I could not take control of the folder and the first time spent a few hours finding what appeared to be an operating system issue and found an unexpected solution: by sharing the \Affinity\ folder as owner and rebooting, I could delete both folders and successfully install Photo. (note: this has been the only folder group I have ever had this issue with as far back as Windows1.1 ;-)
  25. Hello everyone, I am a former graphic designer and logo designer. I got Affinity Designer 2 years ago, for graphic design purposes. But now I don't do these anymore. I want to try my hand at digital art. I know Affinity Photo is better for digital art. Is Affinity Designer good enough? or do I need Affinity Photo?
