  1. I have two book formatting files. One with large images, both linked and embedded, and one with smaller images both linked and embedded. When I go to export the file with the larger images, the file is under 50MB, but when I go to export the one with larger sized images, it is over 200MB. Please help, as I'm losing my mind trying to get the large file size down. Both have the same export settings (I've attached a screenshot of both files w estimated file size). Any insight on what I could do to reduce the file size without affecting the quality of the images would be helpful. Thank
  2. Hello everyone, I have become big fan of AP and I think this is a perfect software for photographers on budget with great features and flexibility. I only recently started using AP (actually only recently started photography altogether). My workflow is probably not the best but it is what I have settled on. I do raw processing on a different software and then use AP on the exported tif file. I was really excited about the linked file feature mainly due to the potential of decreasing the file sizes of afphoto . I tried with a tif file and few simple curves and still the file size was
  3. I am trying to submit a novel for AMAZON KDP, this is the first time I have used Affinity publisher instead of InDesign and I was shocked at the massive file sizes (the novel is 432 pages with art and illustrations on every page, final size was 1.8GB!!) The largest file that KDP will take is 650MB. I have submitted multiple books using InDesign and never ran into file size issues (same size and amount of art). I have tried numerous ways to reduce or compress the file size but the quality takes an immediate hit. I don't know what else I can do, Ive spent weeks on the layout and don't want to ha
  4. I have the same question. I use DXo Photolab as my primary photo editing software. They create a small sidecar file that contains the edits to the RAW file, both of which are read when opening the image file. I was expecting to see a similar process with Affinity. Instead it seems to create a new file with the extension .afphoto which is huge compared to the original raw file (a 28 MB RAW file turns into a 206 MB .afphoto file). It then seems not to require or read the original image file when subsequently viewing or editing the image. I made no substantive edits to the file (i.e. adjust
  5. Hi, I'm using Affinity Photo and Designer for exporting JPG. My Problem is the File Size is too big, even with compression of 0%. Example: 80% compression = 80,3 KB 0% compression = 66,2 KB Why remains the File Size so big? Could it be a bug? (The problem is with Mac and Windows. I have tested it.) See attached my examples. bg-header.psd
  6. Hello Apologies there is probably an easy logical way to do this but I'm still learning as I go with Affinity. I'm creating digital files (printable collage sheets etc) and would like to easily duplicate my A4 files to also fit the US paper size without having blank borders or stretched graphics. I spend a long time creating the files with lots of layers etc and don't really want to have to do this process twice over if possible. I wondered about creating a custom sized page in between both sizes and going from there but I may be thinking about this totally the wrong way. Than
  7. Hi there, is there any plan to introduce more options for compressing PNG image exports? I've noticed I can add my transparent PNGs created in Affinity to an online image compressor like Optimizilla and it will compress the image considerably, whilst retaining the quality and the alpha transparency. It uses something called "Indexed RGB" colours to do this, reducing file sizes by between 40% and 60% for most PNGs with alpha transparency. In Affinity, there is just the option of 16 Bit or 8 Bit (dithered). When exporting logos for the web, this helps improve Pagespeed Insigh
  8. When I save an image as afphoto after developed, its file size end up strange. As if it's still RGB/16 or RGB/32. (of course I converted it to RGB/8) it's the same on 1.8.4.650 beta. Exporting jpg/psd/tif doesn't have the problem. Also if I open the jpg exported and save as afphoto. it is fine. to moderators: Please move this topic to other than FAQ
  9. Hi All, I've been following this thread as I have ran into similar issues. After updating to Affinity Designer 1.8.1 my PDF exports tripled in size and text was no longer selectable. Just updated to 1.8.2, I can get file size down, but am still not able to get selectable text on the PDF export. Any suggestions?
  10. Hi all, Thanks for taking a moment to read. Sincere apologies if I have posted in the wrong area - I'm entirely new here! I had been working on the 1.8.0.55-something beta and migrated over to 1.8.0 yesterday (and 1.8.1 this morning) and since the change, my PDF export file sizes have increased dramatically. Before the switch, my PDF was exported as "PDF for export" at 144 DPI and it was around 30 MB. It's a 116 page document. Now, even if I use PDF small size at 72 DPI, it's 120 MB. Not to mention the export takes minutes instead of seconds. The PDF is 10% larger than t
  11. Hi, When I add a link to an Affinity Photo file the files Size increases unexpectedly. However, this behavior has been described in other threads and might be due to a different understanding about the meaning of "linking". BTW I prefer the classic interpretation of linking which hold back no copy at all within the file... If I now use the same File multiple times the file size increases with every new instance. To me that is a bug because it would not make sense to hold back an individual copy for every instance of the same file. Probably my workflow is part of the Problem. I am end
  12. I have just started using Publisher having used PagePlus for many years. My query is about file sizes, on svaing a service booklet the file size on Publish was 947 KB whilst the same file on PagePlus x9 is 40KB. What am I going wrong please? In both cases the one image is linked.
  13. I've posted before about file sizes and am still curious. I've recently used Affinity Photo to put together an 11.5 x 9" mailer for a client and was astonished that it was nearly 400mb. By comparison the same design in Pages is about 23mb. Attached screenshots show just the front side. On the Affinity document there is a second layer for the backside, on the Pages document it is a second page but in both cases the backside is fairly similar to the front side consisting of several images and various boxes and text. As much as I love using both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer I'm afraid
  14. The attached Affinity Designer project illustrates how different drawing techniques can result in pdf export files that differ is size substantially. I discovered this while developing images that are to used in an iOS app. Of course, we can expect the size of the pdf file to impact the performance of the app. The attached AD project has three artboards. Each artboard has a separate drawing of a flower - all of which look much the same: Yellow-Flower: The pdf for web file size is 282 KB. Each of the twelve petals is a separate curve object with yellow fill and a black stro
  15. Copy all layers, and paste them into a new file, the file will be reduced many times. Bitmap remains in the file after removal?
  16. I am new to Affinity Designer and design in general. I purchased AD for iPad to do a logo for a friend. A graphic designer with AI CC traced over my raster heads to vectorize them and sent me the editable PDF she exported from AI. I had planned to use that PDF as the working file to export transparent png, jpg & SVG files for digital uses. I don’t understand why the PDF file size is 1.2 mb, but only 283 kB when I import from cloud files. I am supposed to have these files exported today, so would really appreciate replies, thanks.

  17. I am really concerned about File sizes. I have a 183 page document, no graphics, jpegs or anything. In Page PlusX9 My file size is 332Kb, In MS Publisher 1,444kb in Affinity Publisher 15,298KB What Gives?? Saving History is not being used. I like a lot of the features, but files sizes this big is ridiculous Words of Jesus 13712.afpub Words of Jesus.ppp
  18. System: iMac late 2015 running 10.14.5 (18F132), Affinity Photo 1.7.1. Hello, I am editing .tif files (16-bit Mac Photoshop format tiff files) in Affinity Photo 1.7.1. I've noticed that after opening the files in Affinity Photo 1.7.1 and saving changes (no layers), that the size of the file on disk is reduced by approximately 50%. The number of pixels in the files and the file bit depth doesn't appear to change, just the size of the file on disk. For example, I had a 16-bit .tif file that was 102.8 MB on disk, I opened it Affinity Photo 1.7.1, I made a levels adjustment, mer
  19. I'm just trying to understand the menus with my new Sony A7iii and imported a test photo into Affinity Photo 1.7. I notice I've got white banding on the left hand side of the image. Have I set up something wrong in Affinity at the importing stage or in the Camera set-up with file sizes? Any ideas please? Thanks in advance.
  20. Hello, I have a problem on AD for iPad. My illustration of eps files that are exported from AD for iPad are always refused to upload to Shutterstock. The reject reason is because the file is less than 4MP. I found out that the eps file size is smaller than the original size. The original file size is always more than 4MP (for example 11000px X 4000px, 5000px X 5000px). However, the exported eps file size is 2052.8px X 647.4px, 1200px X 1200px... I do not find out the rule of the percentage to be shrunk so I do not expect what size I should set the original file.
  21. In Photoplus X6, it was possible to export an image to a gif at a bit depth of 1. This meant that I could put line drawings into my novels, and keep the file size to a minimum. I now have Affinity Photo, and I can't seem to find a way to do that. Does it still exist, or do I have to revert to PX6?
  22. Hello, I have a question regarding the afpub file size. I tried to include a afdesign document into the afpub (set as linked in the File Manager), but after saving the afpub file is still huge. Is the linked file always saved with the document? Is there any way how to exclude linked files from saving and shrink the afpub file size? Thanks Petr
  23. I’m thinking of getting Affinity for my iPad Pro. I want to edit raw files, save as jpgs and export to a flash drive or the Cloud. How can I find out what size file I would get after editing the raw file and saving as jpg? If I add keywording, etc., in a third-party app, will I lose any image quality? Thank you!
  24. Hello I used publisher to do a very simple job, to add numbering in a pre-designed invoice pdf so I can print them. The imported pdf is saved from adobe illustrator with text as curves and it only have vectors in it. I import it as link and export it with "nothing to be rasterized" from publisher. The new file is 50 pages of basically the same page with page numbering, black vectors only (opened in designer and illustrator to make sure) but the file size is close to 10mb while a similar pdf saved from indesign is like 200-300kb (which make sense given the vector nature of the content
  25. Hi. I have watched the tutorial for compressing a jpeg image for websites, and tried to follow the instructions. But the file, at 700x1000 pixels, is 863kb. That is huge for a website. I have tried reducing noise, I have the quality set to 50, I have progressive selected, embedded metadata unchecked. Not sure what I am missing. In photoshop, that file would have been no larger than 250k, so I know it should be smaller. Can someone explain what I am doing wrong? Thanks!
