  1. Hi there, does anyone know if the "Google" Version of NIK Software (Color Efex4, ......) is still working with AP V2? thanks for your response Michael
  2. Hello, I am not sure if this is a bug or there is a way to fix this let me know. I use freehand selection tool to crop a lot and the cropping takes a while, on V1 when i would click elsewhere or minimized the affinity window the progress of the Polygonal mode would remain in place and i would continue afterwards, but in V2 if i click anywhere outside the area of the image it just dissapears and i lose all progress.
  3. Affinity SVG redender issue in Photo.zip Hi, I think there is an issue with SVG image rendering in Affinity Photo V2. I imported the same SVG image in both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer. Set all the settings to similar state and then zoomed in. I saw the though the Designer rendered the SVG image perfectly the Photo rendered with some jagged edges. You can find the Designer and Photo files and the screenshots of my settings in both the apps. Please confirm if this is a bug or not? Thanks, Sanal
  4. First of all, thanks for these updates, excited to try out the tools! I do have some issues that I've found after an hour of trying to use this as an alternative to other photo editors that I'd hope to see addressed: 1. A way to save raw edits as XMP instead of requiring the saving of an .afphoto file, the idea of closing down in an ecosystem, particularly with the lack of a DAM, doesn't sound appealing. It sounds like that's kind of what the Embedded and Linked options do, however the Linked option did not actually add any files to my system (I kept watch on any files with the same file name as the photo), so I'm unsure what the difference between the two is. 2. Global presets for RAW edits, instead of one per page. It's a bit confusing as is. Also a way to edit existing presets and save it as such, instead of deleting a preset, remaking it from scratch and saving that. Also this is likely a bug, but when opening a new raw file to edit, the settings are set to Default, but the "selected" preset is the last used one, requiring switching to Default and back to the saved preset to actually change things, sometimes even doing it multiple times, the feature seems quite buggy. Also, ideally a Preset Manager would also be present, to be able to see exactly what each preset does, and potentially tweak from there. 3. Non-destructive cropping is a must. Honestly just something similar to the artboards, so if you crop an image you can adjust the crop later. I could just open the file in ADesigner, but that's an extra step that could be avoided. 3.1. Keep a strict ratio for cropping, but allow to rotate the crop based on mouse position when dragging the crop selection around (see how cropping operates in other apps like Lightroom and Capture One). 4. Split view of photo without edits, or just being able to toggle the raw edits on and off for preview purposes. 5. It's not clear enough that a photo is a RAW file, a button similar to the FX one would work wonders and make it much clearer what it does. 6. There's something about the Overlays panel that feels incomplete, I think it should be closer in look and feel to the Layers panel but then again, how is this better than just duplicating the layer, making the adjustments in that raw layer, and applying a mask to that? Even more powerful then because you can use images and the like. I might add more to the list once I spend more time on this, but so far I'm somewhat disappointed. Non destructive raw editing was a highlight of the announcement, so I thought it's finally a good standalone photo editor. It is clear however that the app development is still walking in the shadow of CameraRaw and while there have been some improvements and additions that are much welcome, I'm sad to say that I'll likely be sticking with Capture One, despite my wishes for that to not be the case, not because of the lack of a DAM (just making that clear), but because of the lack of a good, non destructive, open photo editing flow.
  5. Hi, I wonder if you can help with an Affinity Photo v2 issue I am having... I am using Affinity Photo v2.1.0 I have been trying to amend a brush, then save it as a Duplicate, which I have done in v1 many times. But v2.1.0 won't duplicate the brushes that I create, so I can't save the new versions of the brushes. I am in an unsaved, new document. I am in the Edit Brush dialog box. I can duplicate a brush if I am not in the Edit Brush dialog box, but then I can't make the changes I want to make to the brush. I attach the documents, also the screengrabs. i can reproduce it as it happens every time I make changes to a brush and try to save it as a Duplicate. i am using Windows 11. I am just using a mouse, no tablet. What I do when it happens... I select the brush in the Brushes panel Right-click the one I want Click Edit Brush The Edit Brush dialog box is displayed Then I make the changes to the brush, add a bitmap, edit the bitmap, turn off Sync Spacing and Sync Size, then when I try to Duplicate it, I find that it does not duplicate the brush and I have lost all the changes because I cannot save them. Hope this helps. Thanks. Del Affinity Photo Duplicating Brush Problem 02.afphoto Affinity Photo Duplicating Brush Problem.afphoto
  6. Hello, I have a small question. why are the new Nik Filters only recognized by Affinity Photo V2 when you turn on (use plugins from an unknown source)? I would also like to know if there will be a way for developers to support the whole thing natively without activating the corresponding unknown sources? as has been the case, for example, with Photoshop for years. That would make working with both softwares much easier! Of course, as a user, I can't say exactly whether this is due to Affinity or DxO. LG Nonbeitz
  7. I've been restoring some old B&W images recently, using AP 2.0.4 on a Mac. These photos have been scanned on a flatbed scanner and have the Scanner RGB profile embedded. After doing a lot of edits (spot removal, Curves, channel mixer, sharpening, etc), I try to Convert them to sRGB (with all layers still in tact) and end up with a significant tonal shift when doing so. The attached AP image will illustrate the issue. This image previously had a base layer, a spot removal layer and a Channel Mixer layer. Just as an experiment, I merged those three layers into the background, and I still got this tonal shift when converting to sRGB. The only thing above the background layer are Curves, Clarity and Sharpening layers. The attached image was successfully converted from the RGB scanner profile to Gray/8 using a Generic Gray Profile, which did not cause the tonal shift. Using Gamma 2.2 or D50 profiles did cause the shift. The odd thing, is that if I flatten the entire document first, converting from the scanner profile to sRGB works fine and does NOT result in a tonal shift. While that works, I do not want to flatten the images because I want to retain all of my layer work. Also, I want to end up in sRGB because I sometimes colorize these old images. Usually, a conversion remaps all the tones and colors so the image "looks" the same after conversion, but this is not the case here. Is this a bug or expected behavior? Mom - Jim 2-2-1942.afphoto
  8. Quisiera saber si en una próxima actualización de Affinity Photo, la máscara de Rango de luminosidad se podrá aplicar en archivos como JPG o PNG? Ya que me he fijado que solo se puede aplicar en ajustes.
  9. This one layer is not showing any adjustment layer icons when collapsed. Notice the comparison between open and closed. And other layers. Also, at my current UI font settings, the lower part of some lower case letters are cut off.
  10. I just got a new Mac mini 2 and now all my files are in one big group listed as "Today". Is there anyway to get them back to being grouped by the year they were created? I have thousands of files and having them grouped by year was very helpful. I guess I should add that I had to import them from a backup drive as opposed to my old computer. I don't know if that made a difference. I don't remember them resorting like this the last time I replaced my computer.
  11. I've attached a screenshot. The plugin worked in Version 1 but no longer works in Version 2. Plugin Launch Crash.mov
  12. Hi I searched for an answer to this for about an hour through the forum but was unable to see if it was mentioned anywhere so I apologize if it is addressed somewhere and I missed it. I am relatively new to Affinity and upgraded a few months ago. I am wondering what happened to the layer styles from version 1? All I get now with version 2 is Did I do something wrong in installation? I tried a reset with the ctrl start and reset all apps as I have designer and publisher as well but had no effect. Is there a way to import the version 1 styles?
  13. 1. Affinity Photo comes with Fill with Primary/Secondary colors shortcuts empty (only Shift+F5 for a somewhat complete but convoluted for simple fills tool). For people jumping from certain other softwares is a bit of a pace killer. 2. The problem is made worse because familiar shortcuts don't work: option+delete or ctrl+delete or cmd+delete will just delete the layer selected. 3. alt+enter, ctrl+enter or command+enter might have either another shortcut already or if it doesn't it does nothing. Ended up settling for a temporary shortcut with option or control + backslash (alt+\), can get used to it but it maybe warrants a fix as it's a mayor friction point as soon as the program is just opened.
  14. Self explanatory, follow up to Feedback topic that was made for V1 a long time ago. The pressure sensitivity with side car is just too harsh, I have to exert a huge amount of pressure to see the pressure move... sounds dangerous for both the iPad, the tip of the pencil and the pencil itself. I tried a pressure sensitivity like the following: However it has to be done PER BRUSH a global override (or multiplier?) for all would be probably appreciated, that way the original brushes curves can be left untouched. This bug is a followup to a discussion going here:
  15. Hi Symbols in Designer is a great feature. However, I need Symbols in Photo too since I do most of my art in Affinity Photo. I re-use and change multiple “objects” when creating a game scene. Symbols are later exported to Unity. I have complete software series so I can use symbols when switching to Designer Persona in Publisher. This is an issue since Affinity Publisher removes other features like Export Persona that I need. My request is to enable Symbols in Affinity Photo too. (The embedded document option is not a good solution for my work). Best regards
  16. Hello, I am new to Affinity and a bit confused to how to save DNG edits in Affinity Photo. My workflow when I was using Photoshop was to first convert my raw Nikon images in Adobe DNG Converter, open the dng file into Adobe Camera Raw to edit, then open into Photoshop. If I was to close that photoshop file without saving, I could re-open the dng file (back into Camera Raw and my previous edits would be saved. So I have opened a dng file into Affinity Photo 2 on iMac, it opens up in develop persona and I make my edits. I then click develop (raw layer embedded) and if I close the file without saving, and re-open that dng file again, the edits aren't saved. Is this normal behaviour? Is there a way to save the dng edits without making an affinity save file? Lee.
  17. Hi, this my first tutorial with the new Affinity Photo V2. A rather bland photo is edited. I remove the haze and realistically enhance colors and contrast. In doing so, I will go into the new features of Affinity Photo V2. I wish you fun. Ciao Jack
  18. Today I was doing a composition and had made a selection and clicked "Command > J" to duplicate and Photo 2 froze with the spinning beach ball and after about 30 seconds it stopped and made the duplicate and with any other move it would do the same thing until I saved, closed and restarted Photo 2 and it must hold memory because it still did it. Yesterday it did the same thing with a different composition but it did it when I used the rectangle tool and I had to "Force Close" Photo 2. I am using a 2020 MacBook Pro M1 and it's up to date and I have Automatic Brightness disable per James Ritson video. Please help its very annoying.
  19. Hi All, Here is a share of my Live Luminosity Range Mask Saved Presets. In addition to the original Highlights, Midtones, Darks ( 3 ) saved presets, I have included 19 more. This may seem too technical for many, but, I will try my best to break it down how to use these. The file that Affinity Photo 2 uses to save these is called livemask_presets.propcol . It is located in user/(folder)/.affinity/Common/2.0/user . If you delete the livemask_presets.propcol file, affinity photo will replace with the original ( 3 ) livemask_presets.propcol file upon restarting the app., so, it should be fairly easy to work with. If you have created any custom files and cannot delete and want to, follow the previous steps. Otherwise, back up your file and save it to another location. Please feel free to comment... UPDATED... For the all of the users who already downloaded, Please download the new file V3 Hue. V2 has been removed for your safety. ( UPDATED ) to full set Luminosity/Hue/Band-pass. See next page... for more info on how to delete see... Live Luminosity Range Mask Saved Presets ( How do I delete? ) - Affinity on Desktop Questions (macOS and Windows) - Affinity | Forum (serif.com) Enjoy - T V
  20. Hi, not sure if this is a bug or if I am doing something wrong, but I was recently playing around with a mockup for a UI design and noticed some weird behaviour in a live filter layer. File included, I wanted blur effect on the top bar of my design, so I created a live gaussian blur layer and clipped it to a rectangle. The blur seems to apply as expected in that area, but it looks like some parts of the layers underneath blur as well on the out-of-clipping-mask area (you can see the shadows and background of each card item getting blurred out despite being out of the clipping mask area). I assume this is a bug? UI design bug.afphoto
  21. Hi All, One of the best new features in Affinity Photo 2 is the Live Luminosity Range Mask. Not only that, but, it has the ability to save presets. Clicking on the "hamburger" icon near the top left of the panel allows three options, create preset, rename preset, and delete preset. Once created, I can rename and delete the preset if the name is highlighted with name present in the preset box. However, once the program is closed and reopened, it will stay in the dropdown list and be usable, but, it is no longer highlighted in the box, which prevents it from being renamed or deleted. How is it possible to delete the ones I don't want or rename these? It also would be nice to rearrange these to keep them organized. Best Regards, TV
  22. What happens if I create a document with 72dpi and then add layers with 300dpi? So nothing is visible but I would like to know if side effects can occur. This refers to Affinity Photo where I can create a document under "New" and this usually has 72dpi. When I add photos for a collage they are usually 300dpi.
  23. Hello Just wondering if affinity version 2 supports huion pen displays (no pen pressure with affinity photo version 1) or is it just wacom again?
