  1. I'm having a problem with Photo adding a white border when I batch-process converting Affinity files to JPG. This doesn't happen when I export individual files using the file menu. Am I missing a setting in the batch job dialogue that would stop this happening?
  2. Hello. I am suddenly having issues with exporting any files that I have in affinity designer. No file formats will export to the desktop, my flash drive, or any folders.

    File type?

    How do I simply see what file type I’m working with? I import a raw image from Lightroom mobile. I want to make sure it’s not importing a jpeg copy but the original raw file. Should be very easy in the metadata but it’s not there.
  4. I'd appreciate some feedback on the process I'm using to convert image files for print (book). I've recently come over from Photoshop and am sure that Affinity Photo/QuarkXPress2017 are the right combination to produce the result I want, but I need reassurance - or suggestion of a better way ... This is what I do: Open the file (usually a .jpg) in Affinity Photo Change colour format to CMYK (8 bit) Using Resize document, change DPI to 300, uncheck Resample and click resize Then using Resize document again, change units to Millimetres (is there a way to make this the default unit) and then change the width to slightly over the finished size of the image in the book, choosing Resample at this stage. Then save as ... Then Export as TIFF CMYK (making no other changes on that dialogue box) However, I then always seem to have to resize the image (sometimes to less than 10%) once I've imported it into QuarkXPress2017 ... and the image file produced is rather large. Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong? Help would be much appreciated!
  5. When manipulating RAW files and exporting them into JPEG, the EXIF data does not contain any clue, that the JPEG was created using Affinity Photo. Most other tools use the EXIF-Tag "Software" to identify, they were used (e.g. Photoshop, Windows Photo Editor, Lightroom etc.). Wouldn't this help to increase the degree of recognition of Affinity Photo?
  6. Hi Support team and all users, I have a problem when I export some large files then my system using 100% CPU Usage and Memory 8GB and my graphics card is also 4GB. System Hang and taking unlimited time to save files. I was creating a wall banner approx 16ft x 8ft. When I need to send sample image to my friends for review JPEG didn't save and system hang. I had sent mail to support but they were not able to solve this problem. So they suggest me to post it on forum. Please help what is the problem. Is it system problem or Affinity Photo software problem. Chetram Kumawat 22x8_wall_banner.afphoto
  7. Howdy. I'm working on graphics for an Antique Dollhouse that need to be printed full size. I'm using an outside printing service for my color graphics and have exported the files in PDF and JPEG format, for ease of transportation. Unfortunately, in doing so, the actual size of the images reduces, the length by about 1/8 inche and the width by about 1/16 inch. Since the printing service does not have Affinity Design, I have to export to something that they can print from. Anybody else notice the reduction when exporting and fix the problem? Thanks, Keith
  8. Hello Affinity World! I am new to Affinity Photo. It is my first important step to abandon Adobe from my Mac. Learning to use Affinity Photo goes well, but there is one section, where I am struggling: Many times I have to work with JPEG files of product shots on a neutral (mostly white) background, that have one or more embedded clipping paths. Opening such a file in AP does show me these paths and I can clip (or blank out) the white background. So far, so good. But Affinity Photo doesn't seem to be able to save (or export) JPEGs with these clipping paths. Or at least, I can't see the logic behind it. Example: Composing an Image in Affinity Photo I have a background and want to place (import) a product shot on that background. I'm choosing a JPEG with embedded clipping path. But when the image is placed, it has a white background, and I can't find an option to use the embedded clipping path, to remove the white background. The only way I found to do that, is to open the JPEG separately in AP, then chose the path (background is now transparent), select the main object by clicking on it, copy it to the clipboard go to the composite image and paste it. Example: Saving a JPEG with clipping path In Photoshop: I create a selection, refine it, click on "make work path from selection", double click it, to make it a clipping path, and save it as JPEG. The path is now embedded into the JPEG file, and when placing it within an InDesign document, I can choose the clipping path to remove the white background. But I could not find a way to save a path into JPEG with Affinity Photo. As long as Affinity Publisher is not out and hasn't proven it's capabilities, I am tied to InDesign. So I need to create and save JPEGs with clipping paths. – TIFFs, PSDs and so an are no option! So finally the question: How exactly can I save JPEGs with embedded clipping paths, so that I can chose them in InDesign to remove the background? Many thanks for you help!
  9. As you can see from the attachment, the same file displays at different pixel sizes depending on whether it was initially exported from Affinity Designer or Photoshop. My question is why. Why won’t the jpeg exported from Affinity Designer display at the larger Photoshop size? Does anyone have any idea? Is there any box I can check so that AD matches the Photoshop display size? Thanks.
  10. Hello there, I've been using affinity designer recently for creating figures for my research. Sometimes I use it for photo collaging. I am also planning on purchasing Affinity photos soon. It's been really helpful software and the learning curve is easy even for beginners, without any background of vector designing software. I am using Affinity designer 1.6.0 on 2013 iMac runs on Sierra. Recently, I noticed a little bit problem with how the software works. When I create a new document for photo collage, It will starts without any layer (no background layer). Then, I started to add some photos and put a layer mask on it. Now in the layer panel I have two layers, one is the photo at the top, and mask layer at the bottom, indented. After that, I exported this file as JPEG. However, in the JPEG file the effect of mask layer is disappeared. So, I get the original photo without mask. This issue is not happened if I exported the file as PNG. I also can fix it by adding empty layer at the bottom, and export as JPEG file. I think i can't say it's a bug, rather it's my insufficient knowledge on layers system on both file types. However, for beginner users like me, the program does not follow with 'What you see is What you get' concept. I put some screenshots on the attachment for explanation. SS1.png, 1.png, 1.jpg is a set, we can see 1.jpg lost its mask layer. ^ SS1 ^ 1.jpg ^ 1.png SS2.png, 2.png, 2.jpg is a another set with empty background layer, both JPG and PNG file apply the mask layer. ^ SS2 ^ 2.jpg ^ 2.png I hope my explanation is understandable. Best regards,
  11. Hi, I stumbled on a JPEG that sometimes shows up too dark in some cases on the web for some reason. Upon investigating what the issue for this was (suspecting an embedded color profile) I also loaded it into Affinity Photo. Upon loading Photo assigns the default color profile (sRGB) to the "unprofiled" image and the image shows up too dark too. Loading the same image into Photoshop results in the proper colours. According to Photoshop the file is in "Linear Color Space". It seems this "Linear Color Space" situation for JPEG files isn't handled by Affinity Photo yet. Also it doesn't seem to be possible to convert the image later into this space unless one converts into 32bit first. It doesn't result in proper colours either, however. Image in question is available here: https://imgur.com/gallery/0DP5M (credit to Reddit user JulianF6 via
  12. Hello, I found a bug when I'm exporting: image with a mask and without background export to JPEG doesn't use my mask Solution: Adding a background layer solves this problem. Environment: Affinity Photo trial version v1.6.6 macOS 10.13.1 Thank you!
  13. My Jpegs appear blurry and I can't figure out why... I've never had this problem with Pixelmator or Photoshop. I tried using the Bicubic option instead of Bilinear as it suggested in one of the tutorial, it seemed to make a difference earlier but now it doesn't??? Using Affinity has been very puzzling so far... it seems as though I would need to be an expert Graphic Designer to understand how to use it. Also, what is Resampling?
  14. Hello. I have weird situation with AP. When I export file to jpg it looks weird. Blacks become blue. Please look at attached screen. For me it looks like a bug in AP or am I doing something wrong? Daniel
  15. Hey folks, Actually I'm using AP 1.6.6 on a MacBook with macOS High Sierra 10.13.1 I have problems that Affinity Photo freezes when I try to open multiple (>5) jpegs at once (did it quite often with version 1.5 without problems when I want to rescale picture for web) The program freezes and does not give any reaction anymore. Only possibility is to kill the program and restart it open less files at once. Hope somebody can give me hand solving this issue

    IPTC not exported

    Hi, I am running version 1.6.6 on High Sierra. I am modifying a tiff file containing IPTC data (keywords, location, GPS coordinates); all these information are shaved off when exporting to JPEG even when the "Embed metadata" box is checked. Is there something I am missing to get the expected behavior? The JPEG exported from PS from the same tiff file contains all the metadata.
  17. Why is the resized jpeg image blurry even when the aspect ratio is preserved going to a smaller size?
  18. I have some jpg images that I want to cut as stencils in my Silhouette design program. But the colors are reversed so that the Silhouette program cuts the wrong part of the jpeg, i.e., it cuts out the black part rather than the white part that I want to cut out. I'm wondering is there is any way to reverse the colors in the image. Doing so would allow me to cut this correctly. I have both Photo and Designer.I tried doing a recolor adjustment but that didn't work. I tried rasterizing the layer to see if I could convert the image to curves but that didn't work either. Are there any other options, or is this just the nature of jpgs? Thanks for the help.
  19. I want to switch from Photoshop to Affinity Photo. I need it for Web Pages. Unfortunately the JPEG Export reproduces very bad quality. After export the pictures seems to be radical sharpened and have enormous artifacts by same file size as with Photoshop. My example demonstrate the same picture in 300% Magnification, left is exported with Affinity Photo, right with Photoshop. The original had 36 MP, both are exported to 2400x1600px with JPEG compression to a file size of 170KB. If I want a comparable quality to Photoshop, I need a file bigger than 250KB. This is not acceptable. I use macOS 10.13.1 and Affinity Photo 1.6.6 – but 1.5 had the same problem. What can I do?
  20. When I export and share some files a series of parallel horizontal lines appear down the right hand side of the photo, they don't show in affinity nor in photos (Mac), but when I then share, for example, on Facebook, they appear... for or example the photo below does not show here, but does if posted..
  21. Hello Just wondering if anyone knows of a way to turn off the compression when exporting a JPEG file? If this is even possible... I'm currently trying to upload my book cover to certain websites and even though when I look at the photo in preview it looks great, but when I upload it the thumbnails look awful (pixelated to the max). I've contacted support on these websites and they're advice so far is to up the DPI (which is currently at a 72) and turn off the LZW Compression. Anyone know how to do that? Thanks for the help !

    Export Issue

    When I go to export and then click share in bottom left corner and then save image, it crashes the app and goes to the home screen. It does not save the image to photos.
  23. When exporting a document as JPEG, on the "More..." settings, I can choose to have a 'progressive' JPEG. How many scans does it encode in the final file? Photoshop lets me choose 3-5 but AF seems to just have either progressive or not.
  24. Hi I started using Affinity Photo a few weeks ago and the quality is great but I've noticed that when I try and post the photos I've edited to Instagram or websites the photos are rejected or the thumbnail is black. Instagram and the websites I post to are very important to my customers and how I get business so please help me fix this. When I export I do Jpeg and I lower the quality to under 2MB which seemed to help until a file sized 1.92MB also didn't work. Also when I post a picture on Instagram I have to now zoom in to get it to show up which usually cuts off my watermark. It's not Instagram because I have the same issue on other sites and the same picture edited through a different software works fine.

    Bad jpeg quality

    Hi, i’m creating jpegs from my AP files and I am constantly having bad quality results. JPEGs appear to be slightly blurry and I can see artifacts even when setting the export to 95% quality. Anyone shares this issue? thanks!
