  1. I posted this two days ago and its' scrolled down to Page 4 without a single view so I'm trying again ........ :unsure: The macro recorder will happily record Edit > Cut and Edit> Paste but won't record Edit > Copy. This seems so illogical I am presuming it must be simple oversight. In which case it might hopefully be simple to cure. I wanted to get this in before your release in the hopes that it is simple enough rectify in time for it. It's a common basic command and not being able to include it in macros is very frustrating. It applies right up to beta 11. Any chance of looking at this please? I would love to have this working.
  2. I always wonder that in AP there is no direct way to apply a transparent color adjustment gradient fade, which would be pretty useful for macros to have. When recording macros one actually can only use an adjustment gradient or a fx gradient effect, but the first one (which I would prefer to use for quick turn arounds) doesn't allow to alter/setup a linear gradient color transparency ... ... the fx effect in turn allows to setup this but works on a whole pixel layer and not an adjustment mask level. Also the usual gradient tool allows to setup such color->trancparency fades, but isn't recordable in macros at all. Any reason why an adjustment gradient (see the top shown panel) doesn't offer to setup a opacity color aka transparent fade here? - That looks somehow like an option omission to me.
  3. hi I am trying to write a macro based on the Orton effect but trying to drag Gaussian blur layer above brightness and contrast layer says it can be moved. any ideas
  4. Hi, I would like to create a macro that resizes the canvas based on the actual image size. The canvas should be increased by 10pixels on each side, no matter what the image size is. How can this be done? Idea behind: create a macro, that makes borders/ frames around my images, but these images can have different dimensions/ orientations.. Thanks Mathias

    LAB macros

    Hi, Here is a library of macros of various LAB operations. It can do - Selective desaturation of LAB channels - Separate LAB channels to greyscale layers without switching to LAB mode - Join back LAB greyscale layers to a composite image without switching to LAB mode - LAB color contrast boost Enjoy! As for the file size being 4MB for a few macros, I have no idea, it is probably a bug. SH LAB tools.afmacros
  6. I was trying to follow the tutorial from @MikaG on How to: Sharpening with Edge Masks from January 14th, 2016. This worked OK on a couple of trial images. I then tried to record his procedureas a macro. This involved merging three layers, the modified background layer and two adjustment layers. This worked fine in my macro-free trial, but would not work when recording as a macro. The message I get when trying to select one of these layers is quite opaque. I get the same message with each of the layers I seek to merge. Is selecting a layer in such circumstances a proscribed operation when recording macros? I note that @MikaG comments that: "Once the function of Actions is added to Affinity Photo it will become a task even faster". John
  7. I downloaded a sharpening macro (ending in .afmaco) from the forums here. I added the macro window (View-Studio-Macro) and tried clicking the "Import" icon in the top right. Nothing happened. The tooltip seems to work (Says "Import" when I hover over it). But when I click, nothing happens. No window pops up to allow me to choose the file to import. I'm using V.1.6.2.97 on Windows 10, 64 bit. All drivers and OS is fully updated.
  8. Hi, After recording a macro you can make blend mode modifications in the macro customizable by clicking the corresponding eye icon. However, unlike the opacity adjustment customization in macros, you can not assign a label to the blend mode dropdown that is displayed when the macro is played back. This is not particularly helpful, the macro dialog may have multiple blend mode drop-downs with no way to communicate their purpose or role. Please add a modifiable text label for blend mode customization in macros the same way as for opacity.
  9. Steps to reproduce: 1) Load some raster photo 2) Record a macro which duplicates current layer, and modifies the opacity and blend mode of the copy 3) Make both opacity and blend mode adjustable in the macro by clicking the two corresponding eye icons 4) Remove the duplicate layer 5) Replay the macro 6) While the macro options dialog open try modifying the opacity and blend mode in it. The preview only refreshes when the opacity is changed, but not when the blend mode is changed.
  10. I have been using Filter > Distort > Equations to modify text onto a sine curve. First I rasterize the text, then apply Filter > Distort > Equations with the following formulae: x=x y= y+(h*a/2)*(b*sin(360*x/w/c)+(1-b)*cos(360*x/w/c)) This filter works as intended as a one-off, and whilst recording the macro, but If I then export the macro, and try to apply the macro later nothing happens. The history panel shows that it has been applied, but the image is unchanged. This happens whether I load the macro as a single macro, or if I add it to a library and load it from there. What seems to be happening is that when I record, I set the parameters a, b and c to 0.25, 1 and 1 respectively. The default in each case is 1. When I try to execute the macro, the parameters b and c seem to have been reset to zero which means that the macro is unusable, since dividing by c means dividing by zero. I can use the Macro Edit facility to apply valid values, but this should not be necessary. Text onto sine-cosine curve.afmacro John
  11. Hello, I just downloaded Affinity today and it came with a free Macro-pak which I also downloaded. When I follow the instructions to import the files it says no files found although I can see the files when I search my files through windows, I am pointing to the correct folder but it just does not seem to be able to see them, can someone help me?

  13. Affinity looks good and pretty intuitive to use. What I am missing is a batch processor. My primary photo targets are birds; things that move pretty fast at times. So I usually shoot photos in bursts - same light situation, same settings etc, up to 20 images. To allow me to select the one photo I like, I want to process all of them the same, so applying a macro/batch processing them. The outcome of the batch processing should deliver good results. This is the one feature photoshop has ahead of all other photo processing software - it does good batch processing. I have tested other software (Nikon firmware, Corel, Gimp etc.) and they have all delivered unsatisfactory results.

    Macro Library ?

    I am running Affinity Photo ver 1.6.6 and cannot add downloaded macros to my library. Also after creating a macro of my own and clicking add to library it shuts the program down, any solutions would be great. Thank you in advance Doug
  15. In Photoshop it is possible, when creating an action, to insert a menu item. This takes the production of macros or actions to a whole new level and allows you to create all kinds of things that are currently unavailable in Affinity. Do you think it would be possible to add this functionality? Thanks
  16. As the forum is now quite messy with no clear suggestion sub forum I post here. Apologies if this has already been discussed but I can not seem to find anything about it. It would be nice to enhance the parameter section in macro to allow for custom or constrained ranges as sometimes exagerated values make no sense. This could be done for example with: "default_value default_unit,[min,max]" or some other syntax which seems consistent across the app. I am not sure if this is better implemented when saving the parameter under a custom name or in the actual parameter setting. Example for Gaussian blur: 0.8px,[0.2,2].
  17. Is it possible to rename spare channels in a macro? Thanks!
  18. I am experiencing a very bizarre problem playing macros with my Wacom pen. When I click on a macro in the library with my pen it turns blue but the macro does not play. It does very occasionally but on most occasions it requires several attempts (usually three or four) before it responds. If I click in the library with my mouse it plays first time always. I have tried the following: Verified my Wacom driver is up to date and re-installed it for good measure. Tried every variation I can think of in tap speed, pressure and duration. Tried adjusting tip pressure in the Wacom driver. To check if I had a pen tip problem I have tried mapping the left click to the eraser button and the side buttons. No difference. I have tried mapping left click to the tablet touch surface and finger tapping. No change. My tablet and pen work perfectly in every other aspect of AP and AD and in all my other 'pen sensitive' graphic apps as well as in the El Capitan OS. The problem is unique to the Library in AP. Has anyone else experienced anything resembling this? Does anyone have any bright troubleshooting ideas? This is totally bizarre and frustrating. :( Mac Pro 2 x Quad Core. OSX 10.11.6. Intuos Touch Pro 5 Large.

    Selection Refinement Macro = Crash

    If I run a Macro with selection refinement affinity Photo crashes. Attached my Macro. maskemachen.afmacro
  20. After downloading the uplift epic skies zip file and unzipping to destination, I get an Overlays and Macro folder containing 50 JPEGs of skies, and one nondescript file with an afmacros extension, but with no Affinity logo on it (see attachment). When trying to drag this afmacros file onto an image, nothing happens.
  21. I’ve recorded a macro that would resize 600 ppi images to 300 ppi, and another that would paste a line of text (I would like to use a variable like “current date” but that’s not possible, so I just use the year and add the rest manually later). These I would stack (plus some others like add a curve adjustment layer) and run on a folder of some hundred images. For now (that is, in Affinity Photo 1.6.6) this seems to work only under the most ideal circumstances, that is, if all the images have the exact same dimension and orientation. Let’s say to record the macro, I resized the first image from 4000 × 6000 pixels at 600 ppi to 2000 × 3000 pixels at 300 ppi while keeping the physical dimensions at ~ 169 × 254 mm. Now in the batch process, images with 2000 × 2400, 2400 × 2000 (please note the crucial difference: landscape instead of portrait), 4000 × 1000 or whatever size and proportion will be resized to 1000 × 1200 pixels at 300 ppi … All I want to do is reduce the resolution but keep the physical dimensions and orientation of each image. In the same vein, the text I paste is distorted if the target image has different proportions than the source.

    macros do not run

    I created and imported some macros but they don't after clicking
  23. Just wanted to report an issue ..but found a work around. Event Crash on Batch Conversion Again!..also working on brush Nozzles I managed to crash AP..Caused by the application of a Macro (Clarity+white Paper removal) to Batch Conversion. Process. Add image [Edit for Bitmap Nozzle creation] a. Black and white Adjustment b. Clarity Adjustment c. Contrast Adjustment d. Colour Filter to remove white paper (make transparent) d. Create xxx slices and export Some time ago I set a macro for Clarity and remove white paper. This was applied to the exported files to create transparent .PNG from .JPEG/200x200 images/new folder This worked fine in AP1.5.3 but in new version applying the Macro in Batch conversion caused AP to lock up without processing images (Had to extricate through Task Manager where CPU was 100%/memory 61 %). Couldn't close AP as Software seemed to believe the Batch Process was still active... Fixed Delete Macro (originally saved to Library) Recreate the Macro in AP 1.6.0.89 works..
  24. Thank you for the 1.6 update. However, I am disappointed that basic drag and drop functionality is not available in the panorama, hdr merge, focus merge, stacking and other file selection dialogs. I usually have a finder window open and I can see the files I want to include in a stack or batch, but then I have to use the add files button and navigate (again) to that folder and select the files. Would love to just drag them from Finder onto the selection dialog list control. This should be a pretty basic code change. After all, drag and drop is coding 101 stuff and shouldn't cause knock on effects or regressions.
  25. Hi all, New to AP. Relatively new to serious photography as well, but it has always been a hobby. First of all...big thanks to the Serif team for providing such a professionally crafted app at such an amazing price. Eagerly awaiting what's in store for the future. Anyway, just thought I'll say an introductory Hi with some recent shots RAW developed with AP. Cheers P.S. All criticism, advice and suggestions much welcome and appreciated.
