  1. Hey fellow affinitiers(if that is a word), This is my first post so I hope it is put in the right place. I am not a new user to Affinity products, however, recently I came across a problem I cannot solve. I created my designer portfolio using Affinity Publisher. The way how I input my images or files into this publisher document - I link my files from my boards or images files that are made using Affinity Designer or Photo. The problem I got is I really want to compress my file while exporting it(my PDF needs to be about 10 MB). However, when I am exporting it, the text which was cre
  2. We have a logo that is a royal blue and it looks fine when I export it, meaning it looks like it does in the Affinity doc but it becomes a very light turquoise blue once I bring it into some other applications. I am exporting as a jpg since it is going to the web. Any idea on why I am getting this major color shift? To see a blue which is closer to what it should be you can see the icon on our Instagram. I set up the IG years ago so I don't know why that logo export worked and what I might have done differently. It should have been exported from designer as well. https://www.instagram.com
  3. I purchased Designer and Photo years ago but I just couldn't replace Illustrator & Photoshop because of a few missing features that are just workflow basics. I've moved to the Windows platform and just downloaded new trial versions of them to give them another chance, and these problems persist. Most of them relate to features that prevent the user from making critical, unprofessional mistakes like inconsistent color use across multiple documents. If you are deigning a flyer, a business card and a name badge, you can't have variations between them. These are a few [very] minor omissions th
  4. So as the title says, I'm new to AD and graphic design in general. I'm self taught and am keen to hone my skills to perhaps make a hobby of it. I've finished my first concept piece and I looked into exporting into an ESP, as this is the file I would be commonly exporting as to then send to a print company. However after exporting to my google drive the document only exports a very small part of the entire document as seen below; Would anyone know why this would happen? And how I can export the entire document instead please? Many thanks
  5. Hi Affinity, I currently have two main issues when getting files out for game development. (I appreciate my needs may be different from the crowd and could be at the bottom of the pile on account). Current flow for the majority of my work. -Create artwork using Layers/Groups named with export names. -Use the 'Create slice' from currently selected object. -This works great as it uses the name of the object - good clean files easily understood. However... the size of the slice generated is almost always not what I want. The slice seems to be generated from the bounding box of
  6. Today I got the e-mail announcing Affinity Version 1.9. and immediately noticed that it is supposed to include one new feature which is of great interest to me, namely "Raw Editing". I downloaded the new version and did some testing using a couple of my RAW image files which happen to be in the PEF format (i.e. Pentax Raw format). Here is what I found: after the initial opening of my files it is true, I can now apply all sorts of adjustments to these images which I could not in the previous version. However, what I could not find is how to EXPORT or SAVE the images back in the PEF format. PEF
  7. Hello, I am having issues exporting files as PSD and then having someone open them in Photoshop. I work with people who use Photoshop and Affinity Photo so this is crucial for my team for me to be able to export them and open them where I have left off or for me to be able to save a template. I have tried all of the options in the export options including preserve accuracy, preserve edibility, and Final Cut Pro X with no success. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but this is super frustrating. Thanks! Daniel
  8. Edit: Worked it out! Will leave this here in case anyone else finds it useful. Turns out CorelDraw has a problem reading newer PDF formats. I exported as PDF 1.4 & CorelDraw seems to be importing it okay. Hi! So I've been using Affinity Designer for a few years now, never had any problems until today. Basically as I always do, I'm exporting my files to PDF to send to the printers. Same format, all vectors, same colour format/profile, everything the same way I've always done it & its always worked fine. However when exporting to PDF this time round, I can view it
  9. I want to create a PDF with an active, moving GIF. I know it's possible with InDesign. How about with Affinity Publisher? Deciding which program to buy. Thanks, Meowface Sam
  10. Hi. I bought Affinity Photo to make CMYK book covers for printing presses. They need me to provide a PDF complete with crop marks (and spine marks). They need these crop marks to reach the edge of the document like this: But when I export my file (whether I choose to "include bleed" or not) It always inserts extra whitespace between the image and the crop marks like this (where the yellow is the book cover's color): But I know that it's possible to get the lines flush with the image because I saw a video where a guy does it like this: So
  11. Hi everyone, I'm just confused about exporting my file. I want to export my file as an SVG for others to edit but why when an SVG file is opened it becomes uneditable because it is an image. Whereas before it was in the form of a curve, can anyone help me?
  12. As a test with this program i have decided to make a small project to understand the basics of how to handle it. So far so good, until i export the final result into an 8-colour indexed PNG file to save space. The project has nothing but two colours, white and the background colour, so the remainder of the palette just exists for antialiasing, however, i am finding that on the exported image, all the solid white areas have dithering on them, the edges are correctly antialiased as expected, but the white areas have an irregular pattern on them. I have provided the project file to some
  13. Hey there, I got an issue with designer when exporting some art boards. They tent to not have the same pixel amount as my art board. I have added a screenshot to show what I mean. This really bothers me and It would be great if you could fix this :) Thank you, Nushara
  14. Hi All, My problem is that when I export an .svg file (a GUI for a synth module) from AD into a folder on my Desktop, then into Voltage Module Designer, some elements have been rasterised. Upper image after export showing some rasterisation on curved line. Lower image before - nice sharp vector. Am I missing something in the Export procedure? Would greatly appreciate any help - many thanks.
  15. Hi, Please can someone help, I have made a simple button, but when I export this I get the white space in the background. I have tried slicing but that dosent work. I just need the border, the about and the white space in the box. Can anyone offer guidance please? Thanks
  16. I placed an image into a Publisher document page and added text within the image area. After grouping all of the elements, with the group selected I exported to JPEG ("Selection with background"). The resulting JPEG file contained a thin white border that was not in the original file. Then I tried exporting using the "without background" setting. Same result. Then I tried it as a PNG ("selection with background"). Same result. Next I tried it as a PNG without background and finally the thing was exported without the thin white rule. This has happened several times when I've exported a sel
  17. How to save artboards to independent files in several clicks instead of many ...?! Thanks!
  18. Hi, I can't export a file as PDF, I get a dialog box with this : "An error occurred while exporting to: <file path>" Actually it is the same problem as this one : https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/16101-exporting-pdf-affinity-designer/ I have the latest Affinity Designer version 1.4.1 I can send my file in a PM if you need it Thank you
  19. In making a book of photographs to be printed by a print-on-demand company, I found I'd exceeded their 300 MB per PDF limit even before I had all image files placed in the Publisher document. The idea of further JPEG compression was not appealing but I decided (holding my nose the entire time) to try compression settings during export to PDF. The results surprised me. No compression: 388.5 MB No compression (2nd time around): 363.4 MB (why the difference?) Compression setting 100: 211 MB Compression setting 99: 182.7 MB Compression setting 97: 139 MB Compression setting 95: 114 MB
  20. As much as I like AP, there is sometimes this last step that makes me go mad. The export. It seems that can't get a quality export from AP. I tried all resample settings and in the end I just get mad and remember that I never hat to think about it in PS. This is a 1669 X 1669 px 400dpi PDF coming from AD I try to get crisp at 565px 144dpi or 72dpi. I'm aware that it won't be that crisp but these exports are unacceptable. I tried bilinear, bicubic and the others. I don't get a crisp image and I should go out for a walk before writing further. http://shahin.de/AP/Screen_Shot_From
  21. Publisher insists on using, as the title string that it embeds in both PDF and JPEG output files, the name of an .aftemplate file that was deleted from disk. But the program has stored that name string somewhere and will not let go of it. How do I get rid of it? Otherwise I will have to run ExifTool and edit the string every time I export a document. Having the title that far off the mark just isn't acceptable. For a PDF file, the string in question is written as the document title (ExifTool shows the tag name as simply "Title"). For a JPEG file, ExifTool shows the string being
  22. As a newbie I would like to ask a question about brushes: how can one export them? I made some of my own, and would like to use them on other devices too.
  23. Hello, I was hoping someone might be able to help. I'm fairly new to using Affinity Photo/Design and Publisher on OSX. Recently, I imported an old PSD template file with multiple layers into Affinity Photo 1.7.3 and it looked absolutely perfect! After adding a few extra logos as layers, i saved the file as both PSD and also as standard Affinity Photo file (AFPhoto) and for some reason when i open the PSD file, all the extra layers I added are shown, but the source files in those layers are missing (blank). I'm not sure why it would be doing this as when i saved the file everything wa
  24. Hello guys, I bought Affinity Designer to do web related work. Basically, I use it to create and export files, mostly SVGs when working with vectors. The idea is, exporting the SVG, taking the SVG code and paste it in the HTML code so we can mess around with the SVG coloring with mouse hovers, etc. The problem is, for multiple times the SVG code exported from Affinity doesn't work right. Sometimes the SVG are cut in a small portion, bugged in some browsers like Safari, etc. Which it's a pain because I used Illustrator for this and the codes generated by it always worked fine.
  25. I'm trying to create a blur gradient, so I: Duplicated a rasterised image Added ±65% gaussian blur to the top image Tried to use the fill tool to create a transparency gradient of the top image Every time I select the pixel image and pull the fill tool across it, the program hangs solid. I've tried: Restarting Affinity Restarting the laptop Not using the gaussian blur Changing the image Anyone have any idea why this is happening and how I can get around it? p.s. I'm not sure if this is the best way to achieve the affect I'm looking for, s
