  1. Greetings! I come up against this issue every time I open an EPS file with Designer. There are layers and layers of images, that for whatever reason, the artist has combined with layers and layers of images from different groups. How on earth does one drag and select (isolate) a specific group of images? Case in point... the attached screenshot has (6) unique UI's. I am trying to isolate all of the images in the top left UI. This appears to be impossible. Each of these UI's has 100's of images, intermixed with image layers from all of the other UI's. How do I select just the images for one UI? I have tried every tool in both Persona's...? And in almost all of the graphic files I have ever purchased - this is exactly the same way layers are managed. What the hell is going on here...? Please and thanks... any advice would help me finally use the $$$ in graphics I have spent - without the ability to effectively use them. Thank You.

  6. Is anyone else experiencing printing errors with Affinity Photo and Mac Monterey? I am printing with a Canon Pixma Pro 1 on a Mac M1 Desktop with OS 12.01. For no reason that was apparent to me, I got this error "The media type and paper size are not set correctly." This occurred after printing 20 pages successfully, with no changes to the printer settings. Canon haven't yet provided an updated printer driver for Monterey but using the Big Sur driver was working perfectly well. I found the only way to clear this error was to quit and restart Affinity Photo which leads me to believe that the problem may be with the latest version. The problem is, the printer will only print one copy, so in order to continue I have to quit and restart Affinity Photo after each page. I am printing a 72 page photo book so you can understand my frustration. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
  7. I don't have time to search entire forums or the interwebs to see if someone else has ever suggested this feedback before. So I offer my apologies if my suggestions have already been covered. 1) Please can you provide a feedback function WITHIN the application it self. It's incredibly frustrating to have to use out dated methods of signing up to god-awful web-forums which just leads to nonconstructive replies of un-thought out opinions and arguments. It also allows you to correctly link feedback (and abuse) to the software license of the user and even categorise the feedback so you can easily see which areas are causing most concern to the user base. 2) Please can you fix the mouse icon when painting in masks in the develop mode. The standard OS mouse icon does not feel accurate to paint with. Also a nice to improve if possible: Painting often feels sluggish to see the red tint forming. If there is a way to make this feel more responsive without upgrading an existing 32GB RAM I7 processor machine, that would be lovely please. 3) Cropping in Develop mode is missing an "ok" or "finished" button. It's frustrating to be sitting back with my tablet, controlling everything then having reach over to the keyboard which I moved to one side, just to hit <enter>. I don't want to map the enter key to my tablet device as it's never used for anything else! if you simply put a button in the UI it will mean I can just move the mouse there and click! perhaps I've missed a trick that does what I want, but then that would mean it's not obvious and intuitive to the user. 4) Please update the flash function for uploading files on this forum. Who runs flash in 2017? Browsers auto block flash from running by default because it's nasty. 5) More of a question then a suggestion, but is there a way to rename the overlays in the Overlays tab in Develop mode? I have 3 gradient overlays, all with the same name! that's very confusing to simple minds like myself. 6) Although I generally hope you spend more time fine tuning what you have already developed, instead of just rushing out new features, it would be nice if there was an in-application function for browsing image files, with a nice big preview of the image and EXIF data, which you can then double click to open it in the develop mode. I don't think anyone wants all this "importing" and cataloguing rubbish which is very slow. But browsing files within Affinity with a UI that suits photographers that windows/macOS don't offer, would be a great win. Thanks for your time.
  8. want to purchase the iPad version of Affinity Photo for a friend but I do not own an iPad myself. It would be a positive feature to allow existing enthusiastic users to purchase without having to download immediately to our devices. It will probably expand your business too. Win, win, win! Cheers, Scott
  9. First of all I want to say hi and thanks to each one of you who decided to waste 2 minutes of their time to read my thread and possible helping me out. As the title states the issue I have a problem in Affinity Photo with the brushes. I'll provide a couple screenshots below, so you can get the idea of what I'm talking about. Pretty sure this isn't as rera as I think it is but I literally did not find any information that could help me out on google, here on the forum, reddit and different sites including youtube videos. I bought the program around 2 days ago since I bought a drawing tablet mainly because I decided to try out with the digital art. Anyway... I'm trying to make some twitch icons, sub badges, logos etc. or even discord emojis but the low resolution of the brushes is killing me. Things I already tried: 1. I've contacted the support and still waiting for an answer. 2. I've tried different brushes ( big - small - meduim ) size and they're all the same. 3. Tried to play with the brush settings and that didn't help either. 4. Tried to play with the flow and hardness of the brush and nothing.... 5. A milion times I made sure that I'm using the "Paint Brush Tool" and not something else. 6. Tried to use different style of brushes etc. and didn't solve anything. 7. Uninstalled the app then installing it again didn't help. 8. Tried different settings when creating a new canvas ( including size ). ( The main settings that I'm normally trying to use are: DPI: 300-400 / Page Width: 500 / Page Height: 400 / Pixels / RGB/8 / sRGB IEC61966-2.1 ). The only way to get a nice looking brush is to make the canvas 5000x5000px but then when I save the image it's too big to be uploaded on discord or twitch. PC Specs: Intel-Core i7-9700 nVidia RTX 2070 (8GB) RAM 16GB DDR4 I'm 100% sure it's not from the tablet, since it's the same when I use the mouse but the tablet is GAOMON M106K PRO. Also the brushes I'm using are the "default basic" ones. P.S: Check if there's a red text on the screenshots, if there is a red text it means that the screenshots is an example taken from a youtube video.
  10. If someone know brushes like this one down here we (with the black edges) I would like to know I would also like to know about any other brush that can be useful for graffiti style lettering
  11. I'm not sure if this issue has been previously addressed, but I am using the trial version of Affinity Photo to see if I should purchase it during y'all's Black Friday Sale. None of the other personas in Affinity Photo seem to be working. I see no visual changes to my image when entering the Liquify, Develop, or Tone Mapping Personas. Not really sure how this could be the case, but I'm not willing to buy the product during y'all's discounted sale if entire sections of the software are not working properly for me to test them. Also, if I purchase just Affinity Designer and Affinity Publisher, will the Studio Link feature still work between those respective applications, or do I have to own all three in order for Studio Link to work? Thank you in advance for any clarity you can bring to the situation. All the best!
  12. Time goes by, St. Nicholas Day is approaching, therfor here are some reusable Nicholas/Santa Claus assets to share. Note: that these Nicholas/Santa Claus assets do always consist of a lot of vector elements grouped together. Thus individually altering/changing their colors, or shapes, needs some amount of work & time for you then inside those groups. - Be aware of that! Here is the corresponding "nicholas-santa-claus" assets file: nicholas-santa-claus.afassets You may freely use/reuse these assets for whatever work you've to do. - Have fun!
  13. Well winter time is comming (...sooner or later), so in order to be prepared, here are some reusable snowmen assets to share. Note: that these snowmen assets do always consist of a lot of vector elements grouped together.

  14. I wonder when affinity will release new software which combine adobe animate with after effects and make it called something like Affinity Motion?
  15. Is there an easy way to turn the background of a graphic transparent. I have been using photofiltre a free app and I set out below the procedure. Select the graphic, choose the colour to be made transparent, preview it, and confirm, If the graphic has matching colours in it, you can fill the background with a different colour and make that transparent. Now how do I do it in affinity
  16. Here are some useful textures I created and collated for use in Publisher for that authentic old-fashioned lined paper look and old parchment A4 textures. They are in a ZIP format and contain both PNG and JPEG versions. They were edited and created in Photoplus and PhotoZoom. Free to use. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GEfc8naE4cfLX6mBoXAU_90TRTIFEIJv/view?usp=sharing Old Parchment Textures.zip Grungy Parchment.zip.zip Old Paper A4.zip Vellum and Parchment.zip https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EnUVfcYKdLAlBfwdAQSLhFrr8TeCXjSa/view?usp=sharing PagePlus x9 Lined Paper Textures.zip Parchment.zip

  19. While I am using Affinity Designer I wanted to try photo manipulation I said may be it will work perfectly. But when I started working on it I noticed three main features that are missing and they are easy to implement in Affinity Designer pixel persona. Those features are "Merging selected layers", "Pentool" and " invert mask". For merging selected layers it seems complicated you have to groupe the layers that you want to merge then rasterize them and that's is a waste of time you can replace just with one click making a "Merging selected layers" button. For the pentool I don't know why you excluded it from pixel persona even it is the important tool there especially in perfect selection in photos. I hope you can fix that or if you have a solution for this issue please refer us to it. Finally, for the "invert mask" feature I don't know why it is missing in Affinity Designer ?! People suffer when they apply an adjustment layer to a photo especialy if it is very detailed it will be harder and waste of time to erase the maske in all the photo wherase if you apply "invert mask" you will easily get rid of this issue. I hope that you got my point considering "invert mask". Finally, I hope that you will take my suggestions and notes into consideration because they will make Affinity Designer more suitable and likable for the Affinity community. Thank you in advance.
  20. Buenas tardes, Estoy creando un catálogo en Affinity Publisher 1.10.0. Necesito que mi catálogo contenga links pues me lleva a una tienda a comprar los productos. Cuando exporto mi archivo a pdf para imprimir se exporta bien, mas no exporta los links, supongo que el sistema sabe que es un pdf para imprimir. Pero, cuando quiero exportar eligiendo la opción de exportar para digital en alta o baja calidad (en ambas opciones lo hace), me causa error. El mensaje que me arroja es: Se ha producido un error al exportar a: /Volumes/ERIKA/Erika/Diseño2016/InventoInventos/Catálogos/CollaresMascotas-InventoInventos.pdf Adjunto imagen del error. Necesito resolver esto pronto pues me urge enviar el catálogo. Muchas gracias de antemano, Erika
  21. Here are some Cat-Silhouette assets to share, mostly house cats and a few big cats silhouettes. The corresponding assets file: cats.afassets
  22. I came across a tutorial for reducing 5 o'clock shadow or stubble from a photo. Can anyone help me accomplish the same thing in Affinity Photo? In particular, there's a step in this Adobe Photoshop tutorial (link below) where a "pattern" is created, and then the Healing Brush makes use of this pattern to effectively reduce the stubble. I'm not sure there is such a feature in Affinity Photo for creating a pattern that would be usable by the Healing tools. Or..... as often seems to happen inside Affinity Photo, maybe there's a better way than the Adobe approach. Thanks for any good input anyone can provide. *** Photoshop tutorial: Reducing 5 O’Clock Shadow And Beard Stubble In Photoshop ***
