  1. I just purchased Affinity Photo and can't figure out how to crop a layer. I have found some tutorials from a couple of years ago that walk mr through it but they want me to use the "Copy Flattened" feature under Edit, and that is not there. do I need to do something to get that feature to appear, or is there another way to crop a layer?
  2. Hello forum, Just purchased the product and overall it is excellent. That said, it is missing a genuinely needed option within cropping. This being the ability to lock/align the cropping tool to the center of the image so that when you click and drag from the left; the right also crops to the same amount, and like wise from top to bottom. Most importantly to me is the need to crop from a corner and for all other points to move the same amount (whilst being locked at the center) framing the image equally and effectively. I believe although do not fully remember that to do something si
  3. In Photoshop I regularly use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to select an area of an image and then use Image -> Crop to crop to the selection. Is this possible in Affinity Designer?
  4. The cropping tool does not work. Clicking on the icon merely changes the cursor. I can shift the photo on the background, but that's all. I watched the cropping tutorial 3 times. The only thing I learned was that the demo had a different layout of tools on the toolbar than I had, and there was no context toolbar displayed when the crop icon was selected. It was nothing but a black band. The tutorial demo showed a default of the thirds grid as soon as the crop tool was selected. That did not happen for me.
  5. Have you ever tried to arrange objects in the layers panel only to loose them, and then find it nestled in a collapsed group of objects? Ever try and move an object so it clips anther object and it ends up with an unexpected result? Ever wonder what those enigmatic icons in the layer thumbnails are trying to tell you? This guide is for anyone with those questions. From folks that are new to Affinity Products, to people who has been using it for years and struggled with the behaviour of layers. This 3-page visual how-to guide will hopefully help reveal any or all of t
  6. Even with the 1.5 updateI still cannot not crop to a specific size. In PS, if I set the crop for 8x10 and the crop mask stays 8x10 and saves as 8x10. Affinity seems to have made this very simple process very difficult, even with 10 years of PS experience, I can't seem to make sense of this dynamic crop tool that changes while you size. Seriously, is there a hidden tool to lock is at the preferred dimension. The tutorial seems to make it even more difficult. Again, I just want to set the crop tool at i.e., 8x10, and save it as 8x10 and the exported file comes out 8x10! No more!
  7. I'm using the most recent version from the Mac App Store & for some reason I cannot crop. Specifically I cannot click & adjust the crop handles in either the Photo or Develop Personas.I click & hold on the track pad, nothing. I double, triple click, nothing. It is driving me round the bend. Is it a glitch or am I doing something stupid?
  8. I've several thousand images to process. Camera "scans" of transparencies. Each inevitably has a border as it comes out of the camera, so each needs cropping. After processing a fair number I know the exact pixel width and height that gives satisfactory results. To save me the effort of having to choose "Unconstrained" + handle dragging on each one OR entering the known dimensions each time, I want a user defined option in the "Mode" dropdown list (preferably one that can be positioned at the top of the list.) I need a means of seriously reducing the number of keystrokes. P
  9. I place an image on a page in Publisher, then right-click and select Convert to picture frame. Then, if I move the frame's selection handles, the image shifts here and there within the frame and its magnification might change—what happens depends on how I manipulate the selection handles. This seems like normal behavior. But I discovered a different approach by accident: I place the image onto the page and select Convert to picture frame. Before doing anything else and with either the frame or the image selected, I use the Image control in the context toolbar to resize by some minute amou
  10. My aim was to use photo to crop some photos to add into an email. I downloaded them to Photo, cropped them, clicked Apply, then did copy/paste into email, and all the cropping was lost. This surprised me! Any solution? thanks
  11. As I'm still unable to add screen shots to forum posts I have to do this as a link to an image on Google Drive. I hope it works. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aABcWxnxTHtgUFO7z6o-MmPuWg9LbsOK/view?usp=sharing That screen shot shows the aftermath of the following steps: With an image in the clipboard (a screen shot): 1. Draw a frame with the Picture Frame tool. 2. With the frame selected, right-click and select Paste as Content The screen shot now appears within the picture frame. But there's something missing. There should be a second outer handle at the lower-rig
  12. When I crop an image, the image itself will be cropped, but the canvas remains still in the original size (see picture, blue frame of marking). When I now copy this cropped image to another Affinity Photo image or file it appears again in the original size - not in the cropped size. For me this looks like that cropping in Affinity Photo does not make a "physical" crop. How can I make a "real" physical crop? Should I always trim the image after cropping? I yes - what is the right way to trim? Can somebody tell me the best practice to crop an image physically? Thank you ver
  13. Hello, I'm not entirely sure if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong but I can't seem to figure it out. Sorry in case I'm just being a idiot here What is your operating system and version: Windows Version 1909 (Build 18363.720) What happened for you (and what you expected to happen): If I want to cut out a motive, like for example the astronaut in the picture, with a mask layer the background won't go away completely. Instead there is this weird grey there which I have to erase with the eraser tool. I expect to see straight to the layer below
  14. On page 94 of the Affinity Photo Workbook it takes you through an aspect ratio example, but then tells you to enter the modes input of 16 and 6 respectively, This obviously can't be correct. It crops the image to near nothingness. On closer testing I found that what they mean is to click the Gear next to the mode to find the predetermined setting. It is not as the tell you to "use the two input fields next to Mode".
  15. I'm using Photo 1.6.4.104. I'm trying to add some additional cropping tool presets. I don't find the instructions in the help document useful.. It says Adjust the context toolbar settings. What does that a mean? It won't take decimal fractions in the boxes specifying dimensions which only take pixels. For instance, if I try to specify 3.33:1 it won't do it. It just changes it to 3 and 1. If I try to then select Add Preset mode it reverts to one of the presets already there. I can't make the instructions work. I would appreciate being directed to a better text or video tut
  16. Each week I have to crop 200 photos to 1:1 size. These are a mix of portrait and landscape. The focal point is not in the same position in each image. So, I need to be able to change the crop area for each photo. To open, crop, save for each photo is slow and tedious. I'd much rather use batch that has a macro that automatically opens each photo, opens the cropping dialog, waits for me to set the crop area, then saves the photo. Is this possible with Affinity Photo? (Is it possible in Photoshop?_ Thanks
  17. Recently I've been having trouble with the cropping tool in Designer. It was working very well before but now it's not working at all. I"ll open an image file that I need to crop, select the crop tool, go to the blue bar at the top-middle and try to drag down. But I no longer get the up-down arrow key and in the rare occasion that I do, it doesn't actually drag down. It also fails to drag from any corner or draw a new rectangle. In a possibly related issue, the middle mouse button pan no longer works. It doesn't even give me the grab hand. And, believe it or not, even using the space
  18. Hello again! Unless I'm missing this somewhere, but giving us the ability to crop the entire document and not just layers. Thanks!
  19. I have a picture in an Apple photo album that I cropped using the Apple edit software; I then tried to import it into Affinity for additional processing, but Affinity imported the original uncropped image even though the original no longer exists in the iPhoto album. I realize I can crop with Affinity, but I find Apple’s software easier to use. How can I get Affinity to import the cropped image?
  20. Hi Would it be possible for the crop tool to remember the last used crop ratio. I always use 'original ratio' and I have to keep reselecting that on every new photo. I see that you now have 'darken border' pre-selected and that is good. Thanks. Keep up the good work.
  21. I've been looking for the solution for this for while. If i have an image masked by a vector, how can i edit the vector without stretching the image? eg. in illustrator i'd use the node tool and it would only effect the frame, not the content
  22. I just noticed the clip feature which is a pretty neat function. I would like to make an unclipped version of the project I am working on and was wondering can I have both version in the same file? Do I make a duplicate of this file and have two separate files? When I make variations with Design and Publisher I do it within the same file.
  23. I seem to have misunderstood what 'sticky settings coming in 1.5' meant. My workflow: 1) I open a photo 2) I crop it to a custom preset [Mode -> scrolling down to one of my presets] 3) I switch from 'Overlay: Thirds grid' to 'Overlay: none' 4) I crop and export the photo What I expected to happen with 1.5 / sticky settings: 1) I open a photo 2) Mode is on the preset that I last used 3) Overlay is on 'none', because that's what I last used 4) I crop and export the photo What happens: I still have to change Mode: and Overlay: for every single photo I work on.
  24. It seems I am unable to delete crop presets in Affinity Photo 1.6.7. Clicking on 'Delete Preset' simply doesn't do anything... Is this something that other users have experienced and is there a known way around this bug?
