  1. Hi I Purchased AD intending to migrate from CorelDraw not because this is a bad product but because AD is excellent and sells for a reasonable price in a time of greed and abuse of dominant position (Adobe, Microsoft, etc.) a path that Corel is stepping too. However I got extremely disappointed when unable to import in AD the many drawings I have in cdr and I need to use. Searching the forum I read many references to the subject from those I highlight this dialog: Posted January 26, 2015 by JeffrsnapIn Any chance of being able to import other formats in the future, such as .cdr, .dxf, .dwg etc? I have been working in Corel Draw for years, and have built up a huge library of client's artwork that I need to work with from time to time. I'm trying to move away from Corel draw now, and use Affinity as much as possible, but every time I need to edit an old drawing, I have to go back to Corel Draw, even if its to make a PDF that can be opened in AD... Posted January 26, 2015 by MattP Hi JeffrsnapIn, I think it has been mentioned before - it's definitely something we'd consider, we just need a little time... At present we're trying to flesh out our features a little to the level where we're happy, but when we have a little time we can try to add it Thanks, Matt Two and half years later we still have no cdr import and I quote the JeffrsnapIn words adding that, even using the pdf and other intermediate file formats the trick is far from adequate. For me this is not a minor issue neither for many other users in the forum, I can see. Can we have a clear statement about? Please! Best regards
  2. I was trying to make a business card by starting with Staples' pdf design template. Unfortunately Affinity Designer promptly crashes upon trying to open that file. The file in question has been attached. Template.pdf
  3. Hi, I'm interested in buying this software for ipad. I've read that you need to use icloud to import photos into RAW. Is this still true or has it been solved with the new versions? I would like to import directly from SD. Thank you!
  4. I'm about to pull my hair out. I just dropped a sizable chunk of change on this program only to have trouble doing the thing I need most: import vectors I drew on my iPad (in Autodesk Graphic) into a program that has the Combine Shapes feature. I've been exporting in both SVG and PDF format from Autodesk Graphic, and when I open it in Affinity, it's just a shape. If it's not possible to save paths in one program and open them in another, I'm probably going to put a hole through the nearest wall. PLEASE tell me this is somehow possible.
  5. I didn't want to pay for photoshop but it has also been years since I have used photoshop. Is there a way to create a stencil?
  6. Suggest changing or allowing photo's being imported to automatically resize to the width of the canvas. Reasoning is if i'm working on a 8.5x11 document and I pull a 20 Megapixel photo in. it huge be default forcing me to have to zoom way out to downsize the image.
  7. Hi, I am having trouble with opening RAW files. It seems to have happened after the programme crashed last night (I didn't bother to restart it as it was past my bedtime) For some reason today, when I try to open a raw file, I am getting a weird purple hue. It seems to be taking a lot longer to open them too. I know it's not the files as they are opening ok in both Cannon DPP4 and Faststone. I have been using Affinity Photo for months now and this is the first issue I have had with it. Attaching a quick set of screen shots so you can see what I mean.

    App crashes

    Hi, Have a couple of questions: 1) Can we import RAW from Photos app directly ? I'm using an iPad Pro 10.5 on 10.3.3 with Affinity 1.6.3 and the only way I can import RAW is via iCloud. Any easier way ? 2) The app crashes every single time I use edge refine tool. Tried with 10-11 photos, and all of them crash. This is the biggest pain point for me as I cannot select specific areas for selective manipulation. Any workaround here ? Maybe a different way to manipulate selected areas ? My camera is a Nikon D5100. Thanks in advance everybody.

    My Passport Pro

    I have just acquired an IPad Pro and have hoped to use this as my primary editing device. As most of what I do is along the lines of "Street" there is little that Affinity Photo cannot achieve on the IPad app. That said, I shoot in RAW and would like to store my photos on either my WD NAS system or preferably on my WD My Passport Pro. A typical workflow would be to Download to the MPP using the auto download slot then import the raw file to affinit. On export I would like to export directly to my MPP so that all of my work is available from there. Clearly I would retain the originals on the SDD Card and I have a backup system to my NAS system which I usually access when I am at home As far as I can tell Affinity will not allow me to add the MyCloud app to locations which is central to this issue... Am I missing something here?
  10. Hello I am thinking of buying AP/AD, but a prerequisite is that I can combine (without flattening) two psd files. Is this possible?
  11. For obvious reasons I'd like to transfer a lot of my graphical work to the iPad Pro and according to the specs Affinity Photo should fit my needs perfectly. As part of my usual workflow I use a lot of logo's that are mostly supplied in either .eps or .ai format. I have no problem importing AI files from my Dropbox. Importing the .eps files however does not work. All the .eps files in the list are light grey and can't be selected. Either the eps import feature is not yet active, or I'm doing something wrong.
  12. When opening TestArch.svg there are two "router" images missing at the top that should be above the lines going nowhere. If you go to http://www.rapidtables.com/web/tools/svg-viewer-editor.htm; replace the "code" pain with the contents of TestArch.svg; push the "Magnifying glass" resembling a search icon. See incorrect.png from Affinity Designer; See online representation from web as correct.png. Version of Affinity Designer: Mac 1.5.5 Thanks for reviewing. Allen TestArch.svg
  13. Hi there - after the early July update, the "Import from Photos" section changed for the better in terms of UI, but the devs seemed to have taken away the ability to access photos synced from your computer - meaning, I can ONLY choose iPad-native photos - which are extremely limited because almost no one takes pictures with tablets. Including myself. Where did the options go? I had thousands of pics to edit but now have access to maybe 20, including screenshots and selfies and other things I don't want to edit in a professional capacity. Do i really have to go through and mark all my MacOS photos as 'favorites'? Something is off here, any help would be appreciated! Best, n8r
  14. Hi, I tried importing this SVG file in Affinity Designer but there are lots of objects that appear completely out of place. The same file opens perfectly well in Chrome, MS Edge, Inkscape, CorelDRAW and Xara Designer. This file was obtained here: https://openclipart.org/detail/231022/computer-circuit-layout.

  15. Hi Team Serif & everyone on the forums. As per a request from @macfinity on Twitter, here are three files to illustrate my import issue. The RAW is 4:3 but as the screenshot shows, after import from iOS photos, the RAW is being rendered as 3:2 - only thing I can think of, is that I shoot in 3:2 and this has somehow affected the import into Affinity for iPad, but it's not happening in the photos app, so your guesses are as good as mine. Any help as to what's amiss would be appreciated, as having to boot up the MacBook is a link in the workflow I do not want in the field. Thanks in advance... M ADDITIONALLY: I'm getting the message "You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file" with regards to the .orf RAW Olympus OMD EM1 Mi .orf RAW
  16. In Affinity Designer fails to load import SVG swatches, as exported by Inkscape. 1. Create new Inkscape document. 2. Use colors from swatches 3. Save as SVG 4. Load in AD 5. Colors fail to display. The problem is that I have 20+ documents that were designed using Inkscape and that use swatches, but I would like to effortlessly open them in AD. color-link.svg shows the minimal svg that renders correctly in browsers/Inkscape, but fails to load in AD. swatches.svg shows Inkscape export. (The weird part is that, linear gradients use similar construct, but it is loaded successfully)
  17. Hi! I have trouble importing RAW-files to my iPad Pro (12,9, 2nd gen) running iOS 10. I have uploaded NEF-files to Google Drive from my Nikon D300. The problem is that they won't open. If I try to open them from GD with the "open in app"-command, nothing happens. And if I navigate to GD from within Affinity Photo the NEF-files are greyd out and cannot be opened. I tried to send a file to iCloud Drive but it too is grey and cannot be opened. I converted one of the files to a jpeg. and it opened just fine from GD. Looking forward to your reply, thanks! - Tuukka
  18. Hi, i am trying to import my sketch work to affinity designer to convert my work to PSD. however, whenever I copy and paste my work to affinity, my icon does not appear properly, and I have to redo my work in affinity.. any ideas how to solve this problem??
  19. I'm having issues with importing from the photos app. Raw import from my Sony dslr will work if I upload from a photo that I imported with the card reader adapter, but not if it was imported from my computer and synced in iCloud Photo Library. In photos synced with iCloud Photo Library, the photo will either have an error message saying the file was not found, or will upload a jpeg. Additionally, I am not having an issue where any photo I import will incorrectly load a previous photo. This has happened 3 times in a row now.
  20. Hello For real estate work, I need to open several images as layers and blend them together for the final image. My workflow is mostly in Lightroom but I'd like to use Affinity Photo for the blending of different layers. The "classic" way is to select the images in Lightroom and use the function "Open as layers in Photoshop...". Is there a efficient workflow to do that with Affinity Photo as well? As a workaround, I currently select multiple images in Lightroom and open them as single images in Affinity Photo. Then I manually copy and paste all layers into one image. It works but is quite time consuming. Thank you very much for your support!
  21. Hello Affinity team, I've bought your app on App Store and tried to use it by importing a PSD file. The file is composed by images and text levels. As soon as I opened the PSD file (Photoshop CC), I tried to modify the text but its not possible. The text is created using the Helvetica Neue Condensed Bold font. How can I modify the text using Affinity Photo on my iPad? Thank you so much!
  22. Hello, I'm trying to use a psd template for the facebook cover (attached) from here https://blog.bufferapp.com/facebook-cover-photo, but when I imported it, I got the below message. Any idea? Cheers! individual-fb-cover-photo-template.psd
  23. I notice that when I try to import files from iCloud, particularly RAW files, I use Canon so nothing too obscure, all I can see in the preview pane for file selection is icons of files and no thumbnail preview. This makes importing the right file very hit and miss as I can not actually see what the file contains prior to importing it into Photo. A major problem if I have lots of images to browse and or I want to import files for merging into HDR etc. Is this a bug or an as of yet unimplemented feature that we can expect to see in a future update?
  24. Hey, First of all congrats on the app, for a first version it certainly is fantastic. Now, my problem is as follows: 1) Shoot with Nikon D5100 as RAW+JPEG 2) Import photos using SD adapter to iPad Air 2 (iOS 11 dev beta 1) 3) Open Affinity Photo and import from photo gallery imported image 4) The image loaded is the JPEG version and not the raw. However, if I shoot only in RAW I can open the raw image from AP. SUGGESTION: Give us the option to select whether we want to work with the RAW file or the JPEG. Also, if possible, communicate this issue with Apple, since the Photos app neither allows us to choose which version to import from the SD card, neither makes it clear if photos have both a raw version and jpeg. Thank you very much and continue with your amazing work. Best Regards, Panagiotis
