  1. I think games development needs TGA support... Working for a major game developer (EA) as a director, although it is admittedly an archaic format, TGA is an essential format for day to day use. This is a format that although we do not necessarily manually write too, it is the way we store the image in its raw format and I suspect many other studios do too. Higher depth formats are becoming more prevalent, but for now TGA is an essential format that without, we could not recommend the software rollout.
  2. I recently learned about the new upcoming image format called the High Efficiency Image File Format (or HEIF), which was mentioned in the Windows Blog (https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/03/16/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17123-for-fast/#OALyDY4AdhDIahYX.97). After looking into HEIF, I was wondering if Affinity was working on support for HEIF for Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo (or if support is already there). The initial impressions of HEIF look promising and might be an image format that can improve workflows. If you need details on HEIF, I've posted links below.

  3. Hello, I am new here so I suppose the best thing to do is introduce myself and let you all know what my topic is about. To begin, I am a professional landscape and nature photographer. I create HDR composites that I sell through stock agencies and also in local art galleries in Sedona and Jerome AZ. For many years I used Photoshop CS5, and it did what I needed done as far as image manipulation and editing. But a short time ago my old MacBook running Lion OSX failed. The GPU in the logic board burned out and I got the white screen of death. I wanted to get it fixed but the parts were no longer available, which forced me to buy a newer Mac running High Sierra 10.13.3. PS CS5 does not work well on High Sierra. It would not update and it often crashed with errors. Adobe technicians told me that CS5 had never been tested on High Sierra and probably would not work. They advised me to get creative cloud, but I told them I was not going to rent a program. I only buy programs with perpetual license. I found Affinity Photo while searching for CS5 alternatives. I have been testing Affinity for the last couple of days and so far I am impressed. It has many of CS5's capabilities, but the controls will take me some time to get used to. I will probably end up buying the program when the trial period is over. But there is one thing that does need improvement with Affinity. It need support for the JPEG2000 format. I have several hundred images stored in that format and Affinity cannot open them. I use the JPF format to archive my master copies after all editing is finished. I put them in a folder with the original camera raw copy. The reason I used this format is because it supports LAB 16 bit color, just like a TIF, but has lossless compression and has half the size of a TIF. This format is also being used in some video applications. Since Photoshop supports JPEG2000 I think Affinity should consider supporting it as well if your company wants to compete with Adobe on their level. I can use another program called ColorSync to convert my old JPF files back to TIF but that might degrade their quality. So if you are considering adding JPF support to Affinity please let me know. And if you're interested in seeing some of the work I do here is a link to one of my portfolios. The images on this site are being marketed through Getty Images. My HDR lightning composites are my biggest sellers. http://www.roomtheagency.com/profile/555/ Thanks for listening.
  4. Is the Designer Workbook in hardcopy or electronic format; or, both?
  5. I bought Affinity Photo in December as an additional external editor for Lightroom (alongside Elements 2018 XXL). I have used it a few times so far and found it helpful for certain processes on TIFF files. However, I noticed recently that all of my RAW files (nearly 50,000) had mysteriously been converted from Nikon format to Affinity Photo files. I did not see this as significant until I started to have problems with Lightroom (versions 5 and 6 with slightly different catalogues in each). I did not realise the cause of the Lightroom problems at first. After Lightroom 5 crashed completely I reinstalled it and deleted the previews. It now works up to a point but cannot read the RAW files. Lightroom 6, also reinstalled, is stuck in a mode of partial reading of the RAW files, but cannot read them properly. I have no idea how Affinity took over all my RAWs but I would like to know how to recover them, i.e. convert them back to their original format.
  6. 1. The Most marketplace is requesting .ai file format, is it possible to export file format to .ai? I hope marketplace slowly can accept .afdesign next. 2. Is it possible to shorten the file format? maybe .ad .afd .afde or other shorther formats. it is just my thinking, may be a further development material. Thank You
  7. when I choose to export TIFF e.g. it does not make a whole lot of sense to offer PNG etc. options and presets? cheers
  8. I think it would be an excellent idea to open up the file format shared between Photo and Designer so it can be embraced by 3rd party tools like Invision, Avocode and Zeplin.
  9. Hello, I'd like to know if there is any way to add and/or remove page size presets from the list New Document window? I don't use formats such as A0/A1 etc, but very often use B4 and B5 - I'd like to have them on the list so I won't have to enter each time the size manually. \ If currently there's no way to do so, I would recommend to do it in a Scribus way:
  10. Hello, I am using batch job to apply a basic grading to my Raw images and export them as Jpeg. This basically works quite good except for the fact that the grading looks quite different to what I get when I open the image manually, develop it and apply the macro then. But this is another topic. My bigger problem is, that portrait format images are always cropped to a landscape image. That means I get a landscape image where the upper part of my originally portrait image is cut off and in the right part of the image is just black (see attachment). Am I doing something wrong? I am using a Nikon D610 which is auto rotating the photos like almost every other digital camera. Thank you! Seeb
  11. This should support import/export of DrawPlus files, especially since DrawPlus was made by the same company. I can't currently open a .dpp file that I can in DrawPlus in any of the Affinity projects to carry them over.
  12. 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?
  13. Was I wrong to expect that a native Serif file-type could be imported into Affinity Photo?
  14. Hello support of affinity, I work with astronomical images from different astronomical standard digital cooled CCD cameras. She worked with the astronomy standard .fit format. To you plan in the future to supported it? In the attachment you find an example of fit-file. She represented a part of the Andromeda Galaxie in red filter. fit are SW images. To you can than combined images of different filters to obtain a color image. You can open this one file with the free program of the NASA and ESA "fit liberator". You find it under: https://www.spacetelescope.org/projects/fits_liberator/ its works on windows MAC, Linux etc. They are a lot of user they have more interested in your program... Thank in advance for your answer. Best Regards Dr. Dölling Astronomical Observatory Aurora Germany rdoelling@aol.com
  15. When I output it from Aperture.app and edit it by Affinity Photo and save it, it becomes unsupport image format. The output format from Aperture.app is PSD and TIF. It is a result same as both. I edit it many times and repeat save. And I can save it normally if lucky.
  16. Hi, Should be really great if it would be possible saving project in AI format to import them in after effect. Actually, when i use the PDF format, there's some problems with the transparency and gradient. Thanx and thanx for this awesome software!
  17. Please add support for .icns files. I have a few logos in that format I'm trying to place in the project and they are greyed out.
  18. Hello! The possibility to change the color space/format at export without needs to change documents setup. Every time I'm working for impression(CMYK) when I need to send a preview to my clients, I have to change the document setup to RGB and then export to jpg or png and then go back to document setup and re-set the color format to CMYK......... Regards!
  19. Dumb question cancelled. Should wait till I wake up before posting :-) But it does raise the issue of the contrast of controls and accessibility for people with impaired vision (and those who are just tired). Much of the design is 'cool' black and grey. I do not have particularly poor vision, but I find this lack of contrast a real pain. This is a screen grab of a drawing tab. I have to click on the X to close it. There is a grey X in the top left, but it could be a lot clearer. The Prefs/UI Gamma setting does not increase contrast enough. Are there plans to replace the grey with white and generally increase visual accessibility of the whole app? Cheers. RPJ
  20. Are there any plans to add support for importing from Pixelmator's .pxm file format? It would be a nice to not have to export to PSD when working between two of my favorite applications. Here is an example .pxm file for your reference (I wasn't allowed to attach it to this post). Thank you for the outstanding application and support!
