  1. Hi, I made an account specifically to request this as it's a very important feature to me, and currently the only thing tying me to Adobe. I work with 3d models and textures a lot. As such, I spend a lot of time creating and editing files in the .dds file format. Too much time to go out and externally convert the files each time I want to make a change. Photoshop doesn't have native support for this file format either but there are a couple of plugins that allow the usage of it. Namely the one from intel and two from nvidia. I know affinity photo does have photoshop plugin support but eve
  2. For manipulation with image file metadata (reading, editing), the great application ExifTool is widely used, which is also used by the APhoto application itself. On the ExifTool forum, I asked for additional support for Affinity file formats, see https://exiftool.org/forum/index.php?topic=8151.msg65450#msg65450 However, since it is a proprietary/undocumented format, it will be difficult to complete it. Therefore, I am asking the Affinity developer/designer to support this request, and to provide information regarding the metadata, which would then be available and usable in ExifTool,
  3. Hi, I'm the developer of a renowned DAM software for Windows. I also use the awesome Affinity Designer personally. My software supports over 100 file formats so far. I would like to add extended support for files created with Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo to my software. Is there any documentation available for the .afdesign and .afphoto file formats? I'm especially interested in ways to render a suitable preview / thumbnail of your files, and in reading and writing metadata.
  4. Hi. We work with SVG files, and I'd prefer not to know that the .afdesign file format even exists for a variety of reasons. For example, to save an edited SVG file, here are the steps I've found: Click on File. Click on Export. Click on Export again. Click on Save. Click on Yes to overwrite. Attempt to close the file. Click on No to avoid saving the afdesign format. Here are the keystrokes: Alt-F, E, Enter, Enter, Enter, Ctrl-W, N I'd typically expect: Ctrl-S, Ctrl-W Since these SVG files may be edited and deployed by other users using a variety of design tools,
  5. Hello guys Am I the only one who actually needs the PDF/X-1a:2001 format instead of the available PDF/X-1a:2003? I'm sending these files to an online printing service and they accept only PDF/X-1a:2001 in order do skip their revision fee. Is there a way around this? A future feature update? Thanks (sorry if this is a duplicate post - searched but didn't find anything)
  6. DDS file Export Request for PC. May I suggest you add export to DDS file - DirectDraw Surface (DDS), to your program. Many People use this type of file in gaming to place textures on models / objects. If this is already in the program please let me know and where it is located to export. Thank You.
  7. Is the format specification being disclosed to the public? If not, please disclose it. It's important for 3rd party developers to join Affinity eco system I think. Please don't restrict the access to it like evil Adobe. Inconvenient psd/ai/indd only environment in graphic design industry is caused by them.
  8. Dear Serif and the Affinity Photo dev team... THANK YOU SO MUCH! I fired up the Customer Beta that I keep installed along side my regular release of AP. Imagine my surprise when I checked the export options and saw .TGA as an export option! I'll be running around work tomorrow like a lunatic informing every single artist about this! Additionally, There's going to be more than a few of our tech supervisors that are going to be excited as well. I'm hoping studio management gets around to upgrading to Affinity Photo before the end of the week!
  9. Hey guys, I worked all morning on a file that was based solely visually on a PDF. After one hour I saved the file and worked on it for another 2 hours. I just wanted to adapt the name of the reference PDF, searched for it in the Save As dialog and selected the file to avoid typing the file name manually (admittedly, I didn't double check, it was supposed to quickly save the file, but yeah I should've known better). I closed the document and left for lunch. When I came back I got an error message trying to open the file because it appeared to be saved in an unknown file format.
  10. Hi, I am a bit surprised that Affinity Phone native format is a lot larger than RAW files (x10!). It would be great if a good lossless compression could be included to save some disc space...
  11. Is it possible to get Windows Explorer to display thumb nail picture of an "afphoto" file? Can I export pictures in DNG?
  12. Hello, I have questions, things that are not clear to me yet 1/ From what I understand even though the file extensions are different for Photo and Designer one can still use a same file in both environments and switch back and forth ? So it is really a unique format ? Seems on can even create Artboards in Designer that then become accessible in Photo.. It's a bit mind-boggling thinking of a truly common format and cannot find much on it in tutorials.. 2/ I understand that when an image in placed in an Affinity, a copy is embedded*.. it retains its original dimensions (pixel
  13. All my other photo software uses TIF as the file extension for Tagged Image File Format image files. I am curious why TIFF was used by Affinity. It makes my file lists look ragged and will probably interfere with sorting lists.
  14. Hi, I have an issue with saving a copy of a file from the iPad version to be edited on the Mac version of Affinity Photo. From the iPad version I use "Save A Copy" and then click save; it does not seem to matter if I select "Save history". I then save it to a location on my iCloud Drive. When I try to open it on my Mac I have the following error message, "Failed to open document, The file includes features from a later versions of Affinity. (See Attachment) Does anyone have any suggestions on what I might try? My iPad is a: iPad Pro 10.5-i
  15. On the Mac, I opened an image in Apple Photos, then used the extensions to open in Affinity Photo. I did a whole bunch of stuff making layers and adjustments and masks. I knew I could save back to Apple Photos as a flattened image, but after I was working on it I realized that I'd like to keep the .afphoto file. I couldn't figure out how to do that. Is it not possible (if approached in the order I describe) or did I miss a button? Save As was greyed out. I know that if I opened Affinity Photo first, and then pointed to my media library I could have done it, but curious if the workf
  16. hi, I think it could be great if Affinity products embraced open format too. I cannot stress enough the point highlighted below. http://mjtsai.com/blog/2017/03/13/sketchs-open-file-format/ It's pretty obvious that the tools which will provide automation will destroy the traditional ones. I already discussed how not having the eBooks version of the Design Workbook was a mistake in another thread today but if AD miss that boat, I will clearly switch to Sketch because nothing can beat automation productivity.
  17. I'm really enjoying Affinity Photo, but I'm struggling to manage my workflow, going back and forth between AP and other tools. This has me wondering: Do I lose anything if I go from one tool to another working with a layered PSD and never use the AP proprietary format? And if so, is what I lose minor enough to be worth the sacrifice? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
  18. One of the sources I use supplies images in PNG, EPS, PSD and SVG format. What is the best format for importing images into Affinity Designer drawings?
  19. Is thre a way to open a 32-bit exr file, withou applying the alpha channel to all the layers in the file? When opening a rendered file from 3ds max everything in the windows is just transparent pixels.
  20. Having just upgraded to Designer 1.5.1, and using Photo 1.4.3, as soon as I did, copy and paste no longer worked as expected. Previously, if I had two identically-sized images, copying a brush object from Designer would paste into Photo in the exact location and scale it had been in Designer. This is a great feature, and critical to what I do. After upgrading, this ability was lost. Now pasted objects appear at reduced size and in the upper left corner of a Photo canvas. If I reverse the process, and marquee select an area of the canvas in Photo, pasting it into Designer will cause it to
  21. I have been working on a cover design in Affinity Designer and I was curious as to how publishers like to receive files. Do I send the native Affinity file or a PDF or something else? I ask because the set up is different then it has been in the past. The people writing the book are doing the work in Word instead of a layout program for an example. I would love to know what experiences others have had in this area. When I self published by first book with InDesign (just using a basic laser printer) I would export the interior as a PDF and then print the cover straight out of InDesign. Since th
  22. Hi there, I'm trying to export my files in various formats, PNG, PDF and EPS files So far I can only get PNG files. When I select PDF or EPS and export, the file is in PNG again. See attached screenshot showing PDF format selected. What am I doing wrong? Thanks
  23. Hi Affinity team I have two small feature requests that will make Affinity Photo and Designer fit really good into VFX, movie and TVC production. 1. My primary request is import and export in the Open EXR file format. Some of the key features of Open EXR is: High Dynamic range, up to 32 bit float. Multiple channel sets (layers / passes). Multiple compression types, both lossless and lossy. Open EXR is used all around in VFX, movie and TVC production. It is supported by, and the preferred image file format of many tools in VFX production (nuke, maya, modo, mari, fusion, scratch
  24. In case you are not familiar with it, Procreate is basically the number one most popular digital raster painting application on iOS. It's a great and fast little program with a very well thought-out UI. It would be cool to be able to open their files up in Affinity Photo on the Desktop. There is currently no application on the Desktop that supports .procreate files natively, so they must currently be exported to PSD on the device, which loses some features like the embedded time-lapse video. PSDs also cannot be re-imported, hence PSD is not suitable for archiving files from Procreate. So b
  25. Hi Affinity Support/Users, I would like to know what's the best pictures source's file format to work with Affinity Photo 1.4.1 ? I ask this since my processing software's .tiff files aren't right in Aff. Pho. They are around 19/20 filled by file's original image and there is a vertical 1/20 filled by a black, white and grayscale encoded signs as the attached picture showed previously. I use .psd files that is ok. Thanks for reading.
