  1. I have a substantial issue I am hoping to resolve. I do a lot of architectural retouching, and I often copy-paste small elements all over an image, often from one side to another. I always have to distort/perspective/warp these objects to make them match up. Every time I move or distort an object on a layer, the layer increases in size by the amount of change. So if I copy/paste a region of pixels, then move it across the image to the other side, Affinity thinks the now transparent pixels somehow still have content, and increases the layer size accordingly. If I Command-Click the layer, the selection edges include the now empty pixels. Also if I try to use a distort filter, the handles encompass the entire expanded layer. This makes it nearly impossible to do accurate distortion. I have tried and tried to isolate just the actual pixel content, up to and including selecting the non-transparent pixels and creating a new document. Affinity refuses to accept that the transparent pixels are empty, and includes them in the entire operation. So if I move a 100x100 pixel selection across the image by 4000 pixels, I now have a 4000 pixel layer, that Affinity refuses to trim or crop. Even after I carefully select everything in the mask layer except the white, hit delete, and Command-click the layer again, it still shows the selection bounds including every other location where I moved the content.
  2. I've been trying to find out how I can fill in/place an image within the selection areas I picked out via selection tool. See below. I am trying to put a low opacity flag in that selected area where the sunset skies are. Make sense? Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Hi, I'm just switching from PS and I cant find couple of tools for work. 1) Perspective tool. Is there any perspetctive tool what work like perspettive in photoshop raw? Somethink what is in this video (old version of PS). I realy like how easy and well this tool work, and I can't find any tool what works that well. Clasic perspective tool is not that good for me becouse it fill the whole canvas, thats wrong... The tool on PS just aligns angles to 90° and its fine. Another tools for perspetion are realy slow and not so accurate (for example this) 2) Quick selection by one click. Is there any option to select an object (from example on white or one-color background) by one clic? Something like this . I realy miss this tool, when a have to select a lot of object (product's) and i have to do it manualy by pen or selection brush tool (even with refine) it is realy boring and time consuming. In PS i liked how easy it is - I just click and most of selection is done. Thank very much!
  4. The appearance panel is great! I love the trick of alternating strokes to get a multi-stroke effect. See attached for example. I have been stress testing this use case and I have some serious frustration points : I have to edit each stroke one at a time. I kinda want to select multiple, duplicate settings across many, such as 'scale with object' or round/square etc. Once I have all the strokes set up how I like, copying the style to other elements is very unpredictable. The last selected stroke in the list *Only* will have a scaling applied (I assume based on its 'scale with object' toggle). Attached is a screenshot. See how after the copy/paste, one of the strokes (the selected one, indicated by the dot in the appearance panel) has received the 'scale with object' transform while the others have not. Now, lets go to the Style panel to save the effect, the same problem will occur when reapplying the style- only one of the strokes last selected will be unpredictably scaled. In theory my solution is that All strokes scale uniformly when applying to new objects, and I can easily disable this by selecting all the strokes in the appearance panel and unchecking 'scale with object'.
  5. Hi. I am trying to do this but on an ipad : I have seen another thread here about this but i just CANNOT get it to work. There really is nothing else that can make you feel like a complete idiot than trying to use PS/affinity. WHY oh WHY is everything so incredibly difficult to do? Its like you have to be a rocket scientist to change a car tyre, even the simplest stuff is completely impossible to figurer out. Hell - even when you guys tell the exact steps to do stuff i cant reproduce it.. So heres a challenge for you can you walk me through this on an Ipad.
  6. Hello ! I really appreciate using Affinity Photo for making illustrations, however there is something that ruins its potential when coloring a lineart. Every other pixel editing softwares I tried (Photoshop, Krita) allows the user to extend the fill selection in order to spill the color to the middle of the lineart pen strokes (for instance). I've attached a sample of the fill results made in Photo and in Krita, along with Krita's fill settings. The color is a different layer below the lineart layer. This pretty basic feature would increase a lot the speed of coloring simple flat drawings. Thank you in advance.
  7. Hi, This is my first post and I'm a novice with Affinity Photo. I've watched all the tutorials to do with editing selections and layers, but can't seem to make the app do what I want it to. It's fairly simple and must be possible, I'm just not getting it! I have a .jpg that has been produced from a stacking program, Sequator. It contains 2 main elements, the foreground and the night sky, including the Milky Way. I want to blow the highlights and whites UP in the sky (without affecting the foreground) and reduce the highlights and whites DOWN in the foreground (without affecting the sky) - sounds simple, but I have spent hours trying to make it work and got nowhere! Please help!!
  8. When I try to select a graphic element often times the Move tool selects items in the vicinity which are in front the desired element. In this example I have a red triangle which I am trying to select. There are three black lines in front of it. No matter where I click on the triangle I always select one of the lines. I haver tried to zoom in very close to make the selection but it didn't help. The work around is to either move the black line to the side or to the back. Both strategies are too time consuming.
  9. hello can some one tells me how can i add more than 1 selection with the pen tool ? thanks Desktop 2020.06.07 - 12.56.21.01.mp4
  10. I can make a selection and then fill the selection using inpainting. This works as expected. If I make a selection, transform the selection and then use inpainting the result is not what I would expect, distorted. How can I transform just the selection so that when I fill the area there is no distortion? Maybe this very short (27 seconds) video will explain my problem better? https://www.dropbox.com/s/pcz8qn47ds3jmwv/select.mov?dl=0 Thanks!
  11. Although I have posted this under other topics before,but I think it should be a bug. When I wanted to use photo for image matting, I found some problems. I selected the part of an image that I wanted to keep, then I clicked on the mask button in the layers palette and moved the whole thing around a bit. I found some remnants of the original image on the edge of the image rectangle. I then realized that this was caused by placing the mask background in white and filling only the currently visible area with black. This is a problem not only for photo and Windows platforms, but also for design and the ios platforms.
  12. I frequently have objects with different parents which should always transform together, for example I can have an Erase object which cuts a certain layer and reveals itself underneath, something like this (but generally much more complicated): They are separated so I can export the layers individually. It would be good if I could save a selection of objects (whose relative positions, rotations, and sizes should always be maintained), similar to how snapshots or symbols are created. Then if I want to move them all I can easily select them all, by selecting the selection group.
  13. When I wanted to use photo for image matting, I found some problems.

I then realized that this was caused by placing the mask background in white and filling only the currently visible area with black. This is a problem not only for photo and Windows platforms, but also for design and the ios platforms. Of course, I can do this by creating a mask with a black background and then making the selection white, but is it really necessary to go to all that trouble? I mean, it should be natural to set the mask background to black by default when doing this, just like photoshop did. Here are some screenshots of the problem.
  14. I'm used to using the "Magnetic Selection Tool" in Photoplus. I can't find it in Affinity Photo. What has it been replaced with?
  15. After using Affinity products professionally for quite some time and observing the development team’s patience and openness to new ideas on the forums, I have a few “unsexy” suggestions to enhancements to take the tedium out of repetitive tasks and keep designers organized. I am truly impressed with Affinity’s products. In gratitude for that, I am inspired to create this Wishlist with some new ideas, and to chime in with some support for the classic, already-suggested ones. Thanks for reading/listening! Most of these suggestions can span all the affinity desktop products some are Designer specific. 1. Organize Assets, Swatches, Brushes, Style Libraries with an edit mode, using an interface like the the "Presets Manager" in Shapes, to allow for re-arranging, renaming, moving between categories. 2. Stoke Pressure Profiles can be saved on an application level. Organize and manage, with an interface like the "Presets Manager" in Shapes. It’s all about efficiency, and not having to reinvent the wheel (stroke!) every time. 3. Layers Panel – Select objects and groups and rename them with a multi-rename tool. Instantly get organized so you and even other people can understand the layer groups and objects in your Affinity document. Interface would allow the user to add a numerical counter as a prefix or suffix when renaming. Handy before using Export Persona to create some basic naming conventions. 4. Sort Layer Groups or artboards in the Layers Panel alphabetically, ascending, descending. Yes, it will change the arrangement order, but properly organized groups can make complex file layers much easier to navigate. Handy for PDF Exporting where the order of pages depends upon the artboard order. 5. Save selection sets that can select items spanning multiple artboards and also within groups. Often similar objects need to be adjusted or moved, but they are on multiple artboards or nested in other functional groups. This can quickly solve that problem. 6. Select by object trait (stroke color, stroke thickness, fill colour). A handy way to quickly select and adjust objects with similar properties. Otherwise selecting these can be a nightmare in complicated projects. 7. Select and replace non global identical colours. Does your client want all the red elements blue? What would they look like in teal or taupe? Play rapidly to your heart’s content. 8. Search Assets Panel ACROSS BOTH categories and subcategories, results displayed as filtered choices. Do you have multiple categories/libraries and need to find the right icon fast? This can save you time. Currently a search has to be made within each asset category, which can take some time if you have multiple asset categories. 9. Handy Show Grid checkbox in Isometric Studio Panel. True, you can use a keyboard shortcut, but it would be nice if this button was upfront. Handy when you are working in Isometric view you have to turn on and off the grid to see the artwork uncluttered. Chances are you have the panel open to constantly switch planes anyways… I hope this helps to add votes for the unsexy underdog features. 😊
  16. Hi folks, I am doing the exercises in the Affinity Photo Workbook and am doing the selection exercise. When i selected the girl, and did the refine selection and then copy to new layer with mask, everything seems fine, until I turn off the mask. When I do there are black splotches all around her hair where i refined the selection. See attached screen grabs. Thanks!
  17. Looking to find the "create selection from luminance" (alt-ctrl click on layer thumbnail) on the iPad version of Photo. Any clues ?
  18. Somewhere, I've seen a way to select a colour from another program for use withing Affinity Photo, for example a swatch held on my desktop. Can anyone help with how this can be done?
  19. When using the tablet in windows ink mode, I cannot complete the selection with a polygonal lasso. Double-clicking with the pen does not work to complete the selection. Also, I cannot complete the selection by tapping the pen at the beginning of the selection. The bug is repeated on the computer and laptop. Also, in windows ink mode, I can’t use the right mouse button configured on the extra button in pen on the studio panels. I have to use a long press of the pen. It's a long time and very often this does not work the first time. This is very annoying( ScreenRecorderProject1.mp4
  20. Hi, In the whole 1.8.2 Affinity collection I can't add or remove object to/from already selected objects by shift-dragging the selection marquee. The preference option "Select object when intersects…" doesn't make change. Peter
  21. Hello, I am not able to select multiple object, even when I hold shift or ctrl while dragging. I changed my keyboard to U.S standard but still not able to select multiple objects. Am I the only one who is encountering this bug ? Thank you Shift-Select-Bug.mp4
  22. I usually use paint.net for editing and am used to be able to refine a selection by dragging handles on the selection edge. I can't find a way to do this in AP. The only thing I see is the option to use the column selection, which is rather cumbersome. Is there something I overlooked or is that way of selecting not possible? Thanks!
  23. Steps to reproduce: Create a certain number of objects, for example 5 squares Use the Move tool to drag select, without pressing the Shift key, all the squares While pressing the Shift key, use the Move tool to drag de-select the top 3 objects for example The expected result was a selection with 2 objects, instead everything is deselected. I'm seeing the same behaviour in Photo and Publisher too. Thanks! recordedVideo.mp4
  24. I've bee experiencing two recurring issues/bugs using your suite of programs for quite some time now. 1) selecting and copying all layers in a file cause the program to close immediately 2) selecting all layers and clicking on a color (to change the color of the selection) makes the program freeze/crash It happens with all programs (Photo, Designer, Publisher), on two different PCs I own (a desktop and a notebook, both running Windows 10, latest version). All programs are up to date (1.8.2.620) now, but I've been experiencing these issues since at least september 2019. Attached is a file where you should easily (I hope) replicate both issues. If you need any additional information (or maybe a video of what happens?), I will be glad to help. Thank you for your support, Davide BIT_pannello_4-5.afdesign
