  1. Hello. After the update 1.6.7 in Affinity, I cannot seem to resize an image how I used to with the Move tool in the Photo section. Normally I would be able to select the six points around the image and resize it with moving my finger, however whenever I attempt it now on it just moves the image in the direction I move my finger. I am not sure if this is a bug or you just moved this ability to another tool, however if this is an issue hopefully you can get this fixed. If this isn’t a bug and it’s just been given to another tool, please may you inform me of that if that’s the case. Thank you
  2. Photoshop user for 20 years, transitioning to Affinity Photo... Question regarding Depth of Field Filter: When resizing a document, the Depth of Field Filter does not seem to scale. The only way I have found to apply this is to scale the original image and then apply the Depth of Field Filter. Am I missing something or is this a feature not yet implemented?
  3. I'd appreciate some feedback on the process I'm using to convert image files for print (book). I've recently come over from Photoshop and am sure that Affinity Photo/QuarkXPress2017 are the right combination to produce the result I want, but I need reassurance - or suggestion of a better way ... This is what I do: Open the file (usually a .jpg) in Affinity Photo Change colour format to CMYK (8 bit) Using Resize document, change DPI to 300, uncheck Resample and click resize Then using Resize document again, change units to Millimetres (is there a way to make this the default unit) and then change the width to slightly over the finished size of the image in the book, choosing Resample at this stage. Then save as ... Then Export as TIFF CMYK (making no other changes on that dialogue box) However, I then always seem to have to resize the image (sometimes to less than 10%) once I've imported it into QuarkXPress2017 ... and the image file produced is rather large. Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong? Help would be much appreciated!
  4. I'd like to be able to work on photos, then reduce the file size to different degrees once I've got something in a fit state. I notice that if I choose (say) PNG In AP, that there is an option to resize - but it only seems to work with fixed dimensions. Ideally I'd like something which works with standard ratios - in a similar way to the constrained crop feature. Not sure how to do this. Also, if I work in FCPX - which I do for video - there are options to send to the Compressor tool, and thus to get different qualities and sized of video. Effectively one master file can generate multiple outputs at different resolutions, sizes etc. Is there anything like this in Affinity photo? I really don't want to have to put in "fixed" numbers each time and use trial and error to get the outputs I want. While I'm happy enough to keep large files/large size images on my computer - if I have space - this can be a pain if using email, or saving to a cloud or web site, and often really rather pointless if the viewing resolution (e.g. eventually on a screen via a projector) is going to discard most of the data anyway - and also makes for compatibility and performance problems.
  5. Hello! Using a Wacom Cintiq Companion with a Pro Pen. Sidenote: to be able to emulate all mouse buttons with the pen, I configured the rocker switch like shown in the attached picture. Works perfectly in practically all applications that I use (also 3d or CAD apps). That being mentioned: The current shortcut for resizing the brush is (unfortunately) ALT-LMB-RMB. However, in Affinity Photo I just can't manage to resize the brush using that key combination on the pen! I always end up being in color picker mode (like with ALT-LMB). It works with the mouse though, and also in Affinity Designer, so it must be a bug in Affinity Photo! Anyways: Can we please at last have another shortcut for resizing?? With the pen, pressing LMB+RMB at the same time is no good, because it means putting the pen tip on the tablet AND hold the right rocker switch! Awkward. Also, using "Decrease/Increase Brush Size" is not a good option. It's simply not fast and fluent enough to fiddle with shortcuts like that. Neither is using the size slider in the toolbar. Understand, this simple shortcut issue severely takes the speed out of the workflow when painting! (Allow me to mention I do professional storyboard and inking work for like 14 years now. Used Corel Painter, Photoshop, Clip Studio. Never a problem with brush handling.) Why not just do it the Photoshop way and we're good? I don't believe this is a difficult thing coding-wise. You just have to want to move it up in your to-do-list. I'll go on nagging you with this as long as this is unfixed... .'p Thanks for reading! Best regards Eugen
  6. Searched the forum with a few keywords, but nothing showed up, so checking to see if others are able to replicate this.. With an object selected, resize the document window by grabbing an edge. For me, more times than not, there seems to be a refresh issue where the selection highlight and the actual underlying object are out of sync. Oftentimes it takes additional jiggling of the window size for highlight and object to re-sync. Affinity Designer v1.60 on a 2012 Retina MBP with High Sierra.
  7. Love the way artboards behave, but I'd like to have more control when inserting, aligning etc.
  8. hey guys, I just noticed that the SH option to resize object only works if you keep the original height of the file. If at some point you increase the stage height, and if you're trying to re-dimension an object to to stage height using "sh", it will resize it to the original document height, instead of the new one. Cheers, Chris
  9. I cannot seem to resize a particular document that I have spent a few hours working on. My solution is to create a new document and paste all the elements from the old one. When I go to File => Document Setup, I see that under the Dimensions section, the "Type", "Page Preset", "Dimensions", "Objects will: " and "Resample" controls are disabled (i.e. darkened and uneditable). I cannot seem to figure out why this is so. I tried restarting Designer and re-opening the document and it still is this way. Did I lock the document somehow? I am using the 10 day trial version but I still have some days left in the trial. Designer is great BTW and I want to buy a license at the end of the trial, but for now I need to be able to resize the document. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. I'd love to be able to "resize canvas to selected objects" or, perhaps even better, "create new from clipboard". So far, that's my only missing feature... Hopefully it's an easy feature to implement too! :) All the best, keep up the great work-- -Sunny
  11. There's a small problem when resizing an object by dragging the handlers. When you use the corner handlers, sometimes you have to hold SHIFT to resize an object proportionally, other times you have to avoid holding SHIFT to resize it proportionally. Every time it's different Cheers, Chris
  12. Hi guys, Is there a way to fit an object to the canvas dimensions, without using snapping or using the width/height input fields? Like a simple option "fit to canvas width or height"? Thanks, Chris
  13. In v.1.6.5.61, when I import new photos from iOS Photos, they would always get resized and also lose all the metadata. Normal iPhone photos are 4032x3024. They’d always get resized to 3072x2304 and I don’t see how I’d be able to control this behavior. Furthermore, all the metadata is lost. Please see the screenshots. This doesn’t happen when I used the app about a few weeks ago, which I couldn’t pinpoint the version number. (It was around the time that Affinity Photo was on sale). I’m running iOS 11.2.1 on my iPad Pro 12.9 2nd Gen.
  14. Hi, When I resize a image I get a white border at the left side, but when I export the result has no border. When I do the same in Photoshop or Paintshop Pro 2018 they look perfect. Also the crop tool doesn't snap to the border of the document, this is a even bigger error! Regards, David
  15. When I import a HEIC file from photos, AP reduces the dimensions of the file from 4032x3024 to 3072x2304. This happens on all HEIC files but not JPGs. Why is this happening? Thanks!
  16. Finally I had time to play more with AD and here my two biggest gripes atm: 1. Why on earth keyboard shortcuts to align/distribute don't respect settings? In dropodown window I have set for example "last selcted" and from there it works as it should, but keyboard shortcut or even button on toolbar ignores this and always aligns to selection bounds. Also last selected object is inversly detected when selecting by click and drag. 2. When resizing text by diagonal handle, default behavior is to scale it proportionally, but when resizing other objects to do so I must hold Shift - it's very unintuitive
  17. I am not sure whether this is the right forum for this, but I haven't found one feature which I have used often in Photoshop or even PS Elements, which is what I could afford. Anyway; if I make an illustration for print, I often want to make a copy optimized for web, but if I use Resize Image in Affinity Photo (on the iPad as well as on the iMac) I don't get an optimized result, only a copy which looks like one with poorer quality. Now, the way I learnt to do it in Photoshop, is as follows: 1. Open the Resize Image dialogue box and deselect Resample Image. 2.Resize image from 300 dpi to 72 dpi - image dimensions (Document size) increases in pixels or millimeters or whatever you choose. 3. Reselect Resample Image and set the desired dimensions and click OK 3. Choose Saw For Web, select location and save. Et voilá! You will have a lighter low res copy which will look just as sharp and pristine on the web as the hi res print version. (I'll attach screenshots to help explaining. Does this exist in Affinity Photo or if not, is it on the roadmap?
  18. I’ve recorded a macro that would resize 600 ppi images to 300 ppi, and another that would paste a line of text (I would like to use a variable like “current date” but that’s not possible, so I just use the year and add the rest manually later). These I would stack (plus some others like add a curve adjustment layer) and run on a folder of some hundred images. For now (that is, in Affinity Photo 1.6.6) this seems to work only under the most ideal circumstances, that is, if all the images have the exact same dimension and orientation. Let’s say to record the macro, I resized the first image from 4000 × 6000 pixels at 600 ppi to 2000 × 3000 pixels at 300 ppi while keeping the physical dimensions at ~ 169 × 254 mm. Now in the batch process, images with 2000 × 2400, 2400 × 2000 (please note the crucial difference: landscape instead of portrait), 4000 × 1000 or whatever size and proportion will be resized to 1000 × 1200 pixels at 300 ppi … All I want to do is reduce the resolution but keep the physical dimensions and orientation of each image. In the same vein, the text I paste is distorted if the target image has different proportions than the source.
  19. This is a bug in the floating windows handling .... it's hardly impossible to resize a floating window in AP .... please check and work on this! See attached video! It seems this does not occur on developers machines - elswise that would have been taken care of long time ago ... it is close to impossible to change the windows dimensions! (In conjunction with the desasterous floating windows handling in AP please check this for improvement!) - there are people out there that really try to USE your SW - professionally ... please keep that in mind ... and don't igore their workflow needs! Cheers, Timo window resize.mp4
  20. Hello Found a strange behaviour or bug Often in work i resize images with already added effects and there i get some issues, effect sometimes change their settings when i undo/redo things. Worst thing that history can't be reverted in history panel. My english isn't the best so better i give a link to recorded video with this "issue". affinity photo version 1.6.0.89 Windows 10 (1709) GPU GTX 970 with latest drivers CPU 4790k
  21. Affinity Photo 1.6.6 macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 After adding a bunch of images of the same photo session to a batch job in order to resize them, Affinity Photo corrupts/destroys some images by adding solid white almost throughout the whole image, while other images are OK. Attached is an archive containing the same 4 images - before and after a batch resize. The 2 get corrupted every time after a batch job, while the other 2 are OK. Affinity Batch Bug.zip
  22. Why is the resized jpeg image blurry even when the aspect ratio is preserved going to a smaller size?
  23. How do I prevent child shapes from resizing when moving ther parent shape's boundaries?
  24. menu ->resize I tried to reduce the size of the canvas by resizing the resize function. However, since there is no guide information, I have to adjust the size by guess
  25. When enlarging the canvas it would be nice to be able to specify the colour fill for area that appears around the image. One reason is that I use this to add colour borders to images and it would be handy if I could say 'make the border white' or grey, or black, etc. Thanks!
