  1. I have been using Affinity photo for a couple of months. I am having an issue with the use of the add noise filter. The add noise filter is displayed in the photo personal when applied to a colored vector shape. However, when merge visible is engaged or when the image is exported the add-noise is not visible... How can I resolve this issue?
  2. Hi everyone, This may seem like a silly question, but I'm having issues exporting an image after editing it. Every time I attempt to save and then export the image, it saves on my desktop as the original unedited image. Here's what I'm doing: After uploading the image to Affinity Persona, I use the selection brush tool to select the desired part of the image that I want to keep, I then use the toggle quick mask tool to add a white background to the image. I then save and export the image to .PNG or .JPEG and both files still save as the original, unedited image instead of the image I edited with the white background. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks very much in advance for your help!
  3. I cannot get the export feature to work in either Designer or Photo for Windows. I believe that I'm following the directions in both apps but all it will save as is the Affinity format. Some system setting?
  4. Hi I Need to add ^#UP and ^#DOWN tag to multiple slices is there a quick way to do this instead of writing it every time ?
  5. Hello I exported an affinity file as PSD. I opened it with photoshop cs6 and tried to edit the text. It seems i can't edit the text as it was not exported as editable text. Same was the case for import but it was solved from Preference option. Is there a way to export text as text for PSD? Most of my client will not PSD export as they don't have AD.
  6. Is it possible to keep the original date on photos when I export my photos from Affinity Photo 1.5? Same thing goes when I develop RAW pictures as well? Thanks!
  7. Hey, First off, a long time Adobe user but really excited with AD and AP; really loving what has been established so far and excited for the future! Great job on both! One thing I noticed after exporting an all vector created file to .pdf, the export rasterized one object "X" that I had clipped with another vector object "Y". So that when the .pdf file was open with another computer, the clipped object in question, was a bitmap instead of a vector. I would like to see more features to "expand" the expanding features within AD. Also, I would hope to see, in the future, the behavior of objects being clipped by other vectors, to stay vectors. Now I could totally be overlooking a feature or procedure (which I don't mind using a work around for now) but I would like to suggest this as an upcoming feature. Otherwise, I would spend valuable time having to go back through a created piece, expanding each individually. If I have overlooked anything please let me know, because I'm also very dumb and this personal trait, unfortunately rarely gets featured upgrades. Thanks again for all your continued hard work! You all are awesome! -Sully
  8. Hi. After a lot of experimenting I have found the only way to export an original 72 dpi jpg image as a resized 300 dpi jpg is to uncheck 'embed metadata' in Export Persona mode. Otherwise the image reverts to 72 dpi when reopened. Is this the only work-round to do such a fundamental task? I guess I'm missing something obvious, but I just can't find it. I’m using Affinity Photo version 1.4.3. Thanks a lot.
  9. Hello, I'm a huge fan of Affinity Designer, and I'm using this program at my iMac 5k but I have an issue after updating the program. Exporting Jpeg or Png -> My original photo color is desaturated, the tone is down like a pale face.I was comparing many times on my photoshop and my old iMac (not 4k) as well, but I feel it seems that Affinity Designer's bug. Do you have any solution for this, regarding color tone is down? Thanks in advance, DJ.
  10. Hello First Please excuse my english i'm french Here's problem : I want to use shapes i designed with affinity Designer in apple motion 5 but it's only possible to import .pdf files in motion and those are note reconized as "Path" in motion There was a java scrip for adobe illustrator but it doesn't work anymore I really prefer Affinity designer as Adobe Illustrator so Please Find a way to use our Affinity Curves as Curves in Apple Motion 5 Thank's for reading and the great job you did for an awesome Price Have a nice day
  11. After working with AD to export stuff for a mobile app, I came to the conclusion this would be a must. It's really difficult to navigate between lots of different things and not be able to organize them, and so it would be cool to have: 1. Layer/Export item color coding (like ps) 2. Export item grouping, to keep things tidy. setting a "Path" variable on this could be cool because it would allow for all items in this group to be exported in the path specified in the variable, without having to resort to "funky naming" like "mainfolder/subfolder"
  12. Hello! First off, let me note that I'm not a graphic designer and all that I have learned is self taught. I'm new to using Affinity Designer but I am familiar with programs such as AI and Inkscape. I managed to design the logo I wanted but I am having a lot of trouble exporting the image as an .svg file. When saved as an .svg file the image becomes rasterized and sometimes blurry. When saved as a .png the image is not too bad but I would like to have the .svg saved for larger print projects. Could my problems be caused by the layer effects I am using on my logo?
  13. With a 300 dpi image in affinity photo, I exported as jpg and chose 72 dpi. When I reopen the document in affinity photo or in photoshop it seems to always say that it is 300 dpi. I resized it again and saved it and still the same thing. It's important that I follow the guidelines when submitting my art so I am nervous to send this as I can't figure out why it wont stay 72 dpi? Thanks, Andrea
  14. Hello, I'm new to Affinity photo, I've learned some of the editing features. I have done a photo shoot the other day and I edited the pictures. Naturally I saved them and as well exported them as Jpegs (so that they can open up on their PC as I have a Mac). I put all the pictures on a usb for them to open, on my computer it says .jpg but then on their PC it is not jpg. I don't know what to do… it's frustrating as I want them to be able to open the pictures! Help :)
  15. After using the selection brush tool to crop a white background into an image in Photo Persona I saved the work, then exported it as JPEG, bilinear, whole document and when I open the saved image on my desktop it saved the original unedited image. I've attempted this multiple times, selecting different exporting options but the result is always the same.. Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong? Please help.
  16. Question! And thanks in advance. Is it possible to save a document as a Photoshop file and NOT render the type uneditable? I have tried several different options, in both APhoto and ADesigner and all result in type rendered pixel. I was able to save in PDF and then open it back in APhoto but my client says that upon opening the file in Photoshop all texts are pixels.
  17. 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
  18. I'm getting a large block of space when I export a logo. It was originally created in illustrator. When I open it in Affinity Photo it looks fine (no added space above) When I set the Transparent background choice it looks fine. But when I export as a png or jpg I get this large space above the object. I'm using the latest version of APhoto 1.4.1 Here is what it looks like http://www.screencast.com/t/hJhcRi427s Thanks for any clues as to why this is happening. Ive attached the original file as well Martial Arts Basics Logo On Light.ai
  19. I created greeting cards using Affinity Photo and although the help section of Affinity Photo 1.4.1 software states 'Gudes are non-printing, non-exporting lines that float over your page and assist with positioning of layer content' it seems that they indeed have exported to the PDFs although mainly only faintly and have printed out on some cards but not all of them. This has ruined 10 x 20 cards = 200 which has cost me. I am still awaiting a reply from Serif after using their 'Ticket' system since 12th April
  20. So I am exporting my magazine. I've got a couple pages that don't export layers. 2 pages is just a single image layer. Another page is background image, and then 2 small rectangle images with strokes. The two small images export, background is white.... Another page is just again a single image, and just exports White.. Need to get this done like ASAP. Any help would rock
  21. Hi, Pardon my ignorance, I am knew to Affinity and picture editing, can you please tell me which options is more recommended or are they to be used in different circumstances? Many thanks and best wishes, Fabricio
  22. 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_AD.png http://shahin.de/AP/KFL_565_72dpi_Bicubic.jpg http://shahin.de/AP/KFL_565_72dpi_Bilenar.jpg http://shahin.de/AP/KFL_565_72dpi_Lanczos01.jpg http://shahin.de/AP/KFL_565_72dpi_Lanczos02.jpg
  23. Hello everybody, I have designed a logo in Affinity, chosen PANTONE colours and exported the file into PDF. My client is having troubles with it as he says printers are opening the file in CMYK, PANTONE colour don't exist anymore. What am I doing wrong? How can I export or save my file for a final art for printers? Thanks for your help.
  24. Dear Affinity makers, please give us an option to change the suffix when exporting. When working with Capture One Pro 9 and affinity photo, re-importing the photos from affinity photo (AP) to the C1Pro catalog could be a lot easier, when we would have the ability to change the suffix when exporting fron AP. Ap is saving .tif files as tiff and C1Pro is seeing them as tif Thanks in advance Michael
  25. I'm trying to export a big architectural drawing - the size is quite huge (200x90 cm at 300 DPI or 23622x10629px at 300 DPI) - , containing vectors and textures. It is almost impossible to export to PDF (even PDF for web preset) to send the file to the printer service. It takes a very long time. Same issue for EPS export. Exporting in jpeg works better if I decrease the resolution, but it still need a too long time. Any solution? Best PS I'm using beta version
