  1. This is my first time trying to import RAW photos to edit in Affinity. I've copied the photos from my camera (Fujifilm xa3) to my desktop, then opened in Develop Persona. I can't figure out why the images appear almost blank - they are mostly white with a few coloured pixels, and the image is changed to a square. What am I doing wrong?? Please help!
  2. I recently started using Affinity Photo and found I could not preview the RAW files from my Lumix GX8 camera prior to import. Is there a way I can do this? Thank you for any assistance.

    Brush import issues

    I just purchased Affinity Photo and am seeing issues already. Brush import is not working properly/well. 1) Brush shape in AP ties to brush roundness in PS. Brushes imported into AP with a certain roundness retain the setting value under the Shape parameter. However the Shape parameter in AP does nothing. You can move the Shape setting from left to right and roundness/shape of the brush is unaffected. I have a cloud brush (attached) with a roundness of 36, it looks properly squashed in PS, it is unaffected and full size in AP. Assigning the value upon import indicates that the Shape parameter should do what the Roundness parameter does (otherwise why import the value?) but the FUNCTION of the Shape parameter is not the same as the roundness function in PS. 2) PS has functionality where a control like Rotation is set with a value of 0 for control based upon direction but it still functions (as long as some control type is assigned to the control). In AP, the value imports as 0, but a zero value shuts off the dynamic even if a control type is assigned. In order to get proper behavior, export should not disable the dynamic if a control type is assigned but the control value is 0, and should only disable the control if the control type is None. 3) Resetting the brush values doesn't set them back to original imported default values. 4) Import of the "spacing" value needs to be adjusted (see attached PSD) to achieve similar results to a brush's performance in photoshop, or maybe this is caused by #5: 5) Flip X jitter and Flip X jitter aren't present in AP. There is no substitute that I can see in any of the brush settings that will give the same effect. Brushes with this characteristic checked in PS behave very differently in AP. This kind of randomness is essential in order for a foliage brush or a cloud brush to look natural by avoiding repetition. (See cookie-cutter effect in attached photoshop file.) I attached brush files (imported and original) and a PSD file showing AP behavior vs PS behavior. The differences are night and day and the brush import is not usable in its current state. In the PSD, the AP brush behavior is above and the PS behavior is below. BrushBug.psd Bug Brushes.afbrushes OneCloudBrush.abr
  4. Photos has a new habit of crashing when I’m trying to load RAW files. Using an iPad Pro and importing from a sony a6500. At first the RAW (not even raw+JPEG files) are loading as PNGs in the regular persona. Now when I try loading the same file it crashes. Any ideas?
  5. When importing an AI (Adobe Illustrator) file the guides are excluded from the import. This is pretty bad since many (printing) companies supply AI formated templates that only consists of guides, artboards and empty layers - none of that is imported by AD ... are there plans to improve that? Cheers, Timo
  6. The people of School of motion are a big fan of affinity and today they posted this very detailed and wonderful tutorial on how to export from Affinity Designer® to Adobe® After Effects@. It may seem a little bit cumbersome, but I think it's worth it...specially if you try to avoid illustrator. The link: https://www.schoolofmotion.com/blog/save-affinity-designer-vector-files-after-effects Have a nice one! B.
  7. Hello all, I am trying to edit RAW files from my sony a6500. Affinity is showing the files as RAW when I go to import, but only about half the time are the photos actually loading as a RAW in the develop module. Sometimes they do, sometimes they dont, there doesnt seem to be any pattern or consistency. Any thoughts? Thanks.
  8. Hi all! I got a serious problem with some jpeg files after importing them. I tried to open a jpeg of a Corona sixpack (no promoting intended) in AP and this happens. Most parts of the photo are missing and the missing parts are transparent. Any ideas?? The issue is not present if I first open the jpeg in any other software and convert it to .png but I would really like to safe the time bc I work on thousands of photos... (sorry if a similar issue has already been posted and I missed it)
  9. Hello, confusion reigns. I am importing jpeg images from Olympus 16meg micro 4/3 camera to iPad using SD card adaptor and wirelessly using Cascable. When I view file size in iPad Photos using the app EXIF Wizard Pro it tell me they are about 2meg. In iPad files it tell me same file size 2meg. When I open these same JPEGs in Affinity and then export them the file size is 9meg, this is the file size I would expect. I have tried this with both raw and jpeg imports and jpeg only imports. Am I getting confused with thumbnail images and full resolution images when I query the file size? As mentioned I am getting 2meg file size in both Iphoto and in Files. is the image size being artificially increased when it is put into Affinity. is the app only giving me the size of the thumbnail and Affinity automatically open full resolution image? any thoughts greatly appreciated.

  10. I can't open ai or eps files exported from Rhino3D. These files work fine with Illustrator, but when I open them on Affinity Designer I only get a blank canvas with one layer. The canvas aspect ratio is coincident with the expected information, but I can't find the vector work. Thanks Rua.EPS Rua.AI

    SVG Import/Open issues

    Hello, I have exported two SVGs in two different ways. I am running 1.6.1 on OSX and have some issues 1. via MATLAB - This imports fine but there is a curve mask which covers the real content of the image. I can delete the mask, but its pretty annoying to have to do this, and I spent a good half an hour trying to figure out if my image was even there. 2. via Python (using matplotlib) - The file is 50mb, not sure if this is the issue...but basically Affinity designer just hangs indefinitely. The plot was generated with https://matplotlib.org/api/_as_gen/matplotlib.pyplot.pcolormesh.html which I believe increased the size. (This is a big issue for me) - Smaller plots which just include a basic contour plot work just fine.
  12. I'm trying to add an image to an existing image. Whenever I import the image, it completely fills the existing image and can't be resized. So I created an additional image (afphoto file) because files in the afphoto format can be resized. However, when I complete the following steps nothing is shown on the screen. If I use the square tool and try to paste the new image inside a created field, nothing happens except the square field remains.
  13. Hi, I have a specific .AI file that imports completely empty in AD (and AP). The file imports fine in a friend's Illustrator and, if she saves it in the latest AI version, it then loads fine in AD. Is there a support email address I can send the AI file to in hopes that Affinity can spot the problem and improve the importer? Many thanks!
  14. Does tha current mac desktop version of affinity designer support import / export ou illustrator files? Thanks.
  15. Please see the attached file. The clipped artwork in the center is rendered on the AD canvas as if it were ~80% transparent, even though that shouldn't be the case. None of the layers imported by AD have a transparency assigned to them (as far as what is visible goes) so there's no way of making it "solid". Adding a white background renders the colors as they were intended. CPSA Flag.pdf

    Hi please help, Designer is my everyday go-to tool, and recently I have been having issues with the colour import. Every time I import an image, it looks washed out. When I then save this image and export it also appears washed out. I have played around with the project colour properties, but some far nothing works. Please help, hate Photoshop, but will have to grin and bear it, if can't find a fix to this soon. Thanks in advance Marcus
  17. I am trying to install the bonuses but when I try to send them to my iPad, it says "sent" but they do not appear on my iPad. When I try to import, there is nothing in recent. I install and import with all kinds of other apps but I am perplexed with this one. Help is appreciated.
  18. Hey guys! terrific job with the updates. Love the software...use it on a regular basis. One thing I love about affinity is that I got to make a really good combo with apple motion. That way...I was able to free myself from Adobe in every way (no more photoshop and no more after effects). The thing is that since I've updated to affinity photo 1.6.7 PSD export from photo to Apple Motion is broken . I've tried the 3 different modes and no luck. It just imports an empty canvas. That's sad because PSD is the only format that I can use because it does support layers (when it use to open them..anyways). I've also tried to export in EXR format (layered) but I got an error message saying I couln't. I know it's this affinity 1.6.7 because this issue is new to this version...it worked perfectly with the previous version. Can you guys give me a hand? I promise I´ll post a youtube video on how to do motion graphics with affinity photo and motion if you solve this for me ASAP. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Best regards. Ben.
  19. How about adding the FITS file extension so those of us who do Astrophotography can import the files directly into the Affinity Photo program without having to go through a 3rd party conversion program and stacking them in a 3rd party program then having to convert those LRGB images to TIFF extensions before importing the LRGB TIFF channels to Affinity Photo? It would sure be nice to just import the FITS images into the 'Add' Affinity stacking feature of Affinity then they would be easily moved to the channels without using third party programs before stretching and processing.
  20. Hello, I'm testing the 10 days trial of Affinity Photo and have an issue with multi-layer TIFF images generated by Adobe Photoshop: when I import such images into Affinity Photo, all layers are gone, flattened into a single layer. Is there a way to make Photo recognize the Photoshop's multi-layer TIFFs? Thank you for your help!
  21. I have updated to 1.6.7 on my IOS device (IPad pro, iOS 11.2.6) When I am trying to import ORF raw files (TG 5) no image is displayed in the raw development window, when I tap “develop” Affinity crashes, I am able tough to import ORF RAW files from an EM5 mk 2 Camera, is the Olympus TG 5 not supported by Affinity in spite of the IOS support for this camera? If not, when can I expect support for this camera?
  22. When I import a RAW file taken on the IPhone and develop it in Affinity’s RAW persona, and then do my processing and save the resulting AFF file, the thumbnail of that image shows in the Home screen as RGB 16 bit below the image dimensions. I’m a little confused; is this 16 bit/channel in the RGB, or the rather restrictive 16-bit RGB format? Sorry for a rather basic question, but I haven’t found an answer online. Thanks in advance. Edward
  23. Hi Is it possible to move a custom palette from Designer to Designer Beta? If so, how is it done? Thanks

  25. I’ve just downloaded the Affinity Photo app for the iPad and have a workflow question. I come from using LR on an iMac. I shoot a very large number of Photos per session. I might cull 80% of them immediately, as soon as I get a good view of the images. But in this iPad workflow, the problem is that once I pop my SD card into the reader, hundreds of photos (eventually) show up in the Photos app Import page, and from the small size of the thumbnails I cannot tell if an image is a keeper or not. I don’t want to import all the photos and then delete later—it will take forever, plus needlessly transfer all the photos to iCloud. Is there a solution to this I’m not thinking about? Is there a way to see larger thumbnails I don’t know about? Or a better import app that shows me larger images? Or perhaps is there an app that would let me look into the sd card and view them larger, before importing?
