  1. I created a macro to place a signature on my photos (Affinity designer file). It work fine if the size of the photo is the same than the one where I created the macro, otherwise, the proportion of the placed document is wrong.
  2. Hallo everyone, I a not quite sure, theres a way to do this in affinity. I got a folder with several pdf´s, that where produced from autocad, and that have to be composed in affinity Photo to make a much more pleasent floor plan. The several pdf´s where Plotted from autocad, untill now get placed one after the other to the center of a Document, that refers in size to the pdf´s that of course have all the same size, and gets placed in the middle of the document using a dp1 of 300... due to the nature of the embedded pdf´ files i import, i do aply to each of them a layer effect "color overlay" (so the architects can care about the color much more precise inside of affinity photo) , and also due to the problems of the embedded vektors of the pdf´s, i aply the layer effect "outline", in the exakt same color of the color overlay i used before. This way the thin and uggly lines of the used colored triangles of the fillings dissapear for the embedded pdfs. now i do this one after the other with each of the pdf´s the architects wrote to one folder , untill every pdf is sitting on top of the other , using the layereffects and they are all centered to the middle of the document (which has the size of the first opend pdf and so gets the exact szise of the needed pdfs) .. This is the first step... 1. Question: Is there a way to record in a macro to open, place to the documents center , all needed pdf´s of one folder, and applay the layer efffects i have been talking about ? 2: Question: As usual the Architectural plans change very often in a competition untill you get your final result.. this takes much much time .... so.. is there a way, to produce a macro of all the now embedded pdfs, and tell affinity, to replace them by the pdf´s in a selected folder, and replace each pdf with the now actualised pdf´s, with their corresponding names ? and if there isn´t any, go on to the next embedded pdf, and look if there existes one with the corrresponding name, untill all layer with pdf´s are actualised with the new pdfs´s. and this by remaining all the layereffects, you put on your embedded pdf´s ? this would streamline the import and redoing process of my documents very very much and would spare dozenz of hours of work in an architectural workflow process.. here´s a screenshot of an example (not finished plan).. greetings Tom..
  3. How can I import macros on my IPad?
  4. I have tried to make an online version of artwork I produce for my job but I can't seem to figure out how to make a macros for it, even though I know AP is capable of it. My project is this: 1. Open any jpeg or flattened pdf file and open in Photo 2. Reduce the image size for web use to 72ppi (its always going to be a 300ppi file that is really for print) and make it 350px in height ---doesn't matter on the width 3. Make canvas 400x400px so that the image is now centered on this new size 4. Add a soft shadow on this image on this new canvas size 5. Get me to the point I would just tell the app where I want to save it to I can do this macro (action in PS) in Photoshop without any problem, but I am pretty sure I can do it in AP too. Just a little lost. Attached here is the action in action in PS with a random image from the web to demonstrate what I want to achieve. When I try these same steps I used to make this action in PS in Photo, I get a stretched image that never works and it never really finishes the macro or so it seems. The image winds up being stretched and far from the canvas off to the lower RH side... SO I must be doing things wrong. Web file Action_.mov
  5. When you use the Import on the Macro panel, it only looks for .macro files. But if the macro you want is in a library file and you don't want to import the whole library, it would be neat if the Macro import also let you access .macros files and then let you choose which macro to import from there. Likewise, importing into the library should allow you to select a .macro file and then select which library category to put it in. More generally, the difference between .macro and .macros files can be easily missed, leading to user confusion. In other words it's a usabiliy issue and intelligent coping with this is a Good Thing.
  6. There needs to be a way to export the history of changes into a Macro for use against other pics. It would be a HUGE time-saver to be able to grab the history of all applied edits, save to a Macro, and then re-apply those same "final" changes as a batch job to other pics. Example - I have 20 pics that were all taken at the same time (similar lighting, etc), so they need the same basic treatment at least to begin with. After I'm satisfied with the edits I make to picture #1, I can save, and batch run the other 19. I get that I may be able to do some of this by just running a Macro at the beginning of my editing session, but that's clunky and also through testing doesn't quite allow me to do some things (such as set layer visibility as I work through changes, retain the "before" setting as in an Exposure change, etc).
  7. batch jobs can only save afphoto, jpg, png, tiff, exr normal File>export allows more options though e.g. pdf it just happened that I had to batch convert a bunch of svg which AP opened well but without a batch option it was not practical please make batch jobs more full featured cheers (and enable parallel export)
  8. Can we have Macros in Affinity Designer like you have in Photo, please? I’ve been working on an illustration which, had Macros been around, would have saved me a _lot_ of time. As it is, I’ve had to repeat the same three or four transformations many, many, many times and different objects.
  9. Hi AP folk, I have had AP since it's release but am just now starting to phase out my use of PS CS5 and replace it with AP as my main photo software. One of the functions I am having difficulty with though is placing a signature on my photos in a batch process using a macro. I have a macro that downsizes, then runs a high pass sharpening filter and I then want to add a signature in the bottom right of the photo. I read in a forum somewhere that AP doesn't allow a text layer to be added in a macro ( I have had the error message when trying to do it it) so I created a brush that is my signature. The brush works when I use it recording the macro but when I run the macro on a batch of photos it doesn't place the signature on the photo. What have I done wrong ? Is it possible to put a signature/text on photos as part of a macro to batch process ? Regards Ian Colley
  10. Good evening, I'm trying to record a macro, but it does not enter text in action
  11. Could we be allowed to add a shortcut key to toggle the macro panel, please? Edit/Preferences, Shortcut keys. Photo, View. Studio > Macro. Thanks!
  12. I know this feature has been requested before (macros/actions), but it's not quite there yet for my needs. With the 1.5 update, Affinity Photo does have a basic macro recording function now, but it still does not eliminate the need for Photoshop from my workflow until I can assign custom keyboard shortcuts to the macros for rapid playback! I've been very impressed with Affinity Photo so far, and I really want to see it become a "Photoshop Killer"! I work in entertainment press photography, and we typically edit around 100-200 photos a night from an average movie premiere/event, or up to 1000 photos from a major awards show. We work at a rapid pace and on very tight deadlines, so speed is critical. My typical workflow in Photoshop ... - I need to be able to eyeball every single photo in a set and make rapid corrections with a series of keyboard shortcuts. Batch processing might work for some jobs, but looking at every single photo to make adjustments quickly is also frequently needed. - I usually open 200 photos in Photoshop at a time (Photoshop's limit) in a cascading stack, then do corrections to levels, sharpness, and maybe slight color correction if needed. - Save/close the file as JPEG 8, 300dpi at 3000x2000 px (Saved while closing the file with COMMAND-W on Mac) - Repeat until I'm done with all 200, and then work on an addition 200 files if needed - Then caption all the photos with the name of the person/people using Photo Mechanic What I would love to see in Affinity Photo is the same rapid editing ability that Photoshop has. For example, I would love to be able to assign a keyboard shortcut to macros/actions that do something like the following: CTRL-SHIFT-F1 - Auto Brightness/Contrast CTRL-SHIFT-F2 - Brighten 10% CTRL-SHIFT-F3 - Brighten 20% CTRL-SHIFT-F4 - Auto Color Temp CTRL-SHIFT-F5 - De-Orange CTRL-SHIFT-F6 - De-Blue CTRL-SHIFT-F7 - Auto Sharpen CTRL-SHIFT-F8 - Sharpen 10% CTRL-SHIFT-F9 - Sharpen 20% CTRL-ALT-L - Last Used Level Adjustment CTRL-ALT-C - Last Used Color Correction CTRL-ALT-U - Last Used Sharpness Adjustment I think you get the idea :-) Another feature I would love to see is IPTC data creation/editing (or even basic awareness, passthrough). It's not an absolute must for me, since I use Photo Mechanic, which does an amazing job. However, I would not like to have a situation pop up where maybe I need to go back and do a quick edit to a file that has already been captioned in Photo Mechanic, but Affinity Photo doesn't save the existing IPTC data that's already in the file (ie. strips that info out). That would be "no bueno"! Thanks for listening!
  13. Hi Macro don't work anymore. -I do macro, duplicate layer -Save -Affinity says: exporting can´d do whit macro -add to library anyway -Macro system crash -I can't see library any macros -I can't add macro to library (Affinity crash every time) -I can't import macros (Affinity says not valid macro) How I can fix this error ?

    Bug add to library

    Hello, I use affinity photo on window for several months now, and I just had a very embarrassing bug, indeed I can no longer add macro in my library. The bug arrived when my affinity photo stopped working while I was exporting a batch image. I restarted my software, tried to reset my preferences, reinstall the software, restarted my pc, but nothing works ... impossible to click here : Do you have an idea for everything reset? Thank !
  16. I was trying to achieve pseudo image layers by mixing the Replace Image function with Macros. Here's the basic idea: Draw a red circle in some application (Illustrator for example), export that as a PNG image, let's call it circle.png Place circle.png into an Affinity Photo file Edit circle.png elsewhere so the circle is blue now Use the Move Tool to select the placed image layer inside the Affinity Photo file Press the Replace Image button in toolbar, choose the circle.png image again The placed image now shows a blue circle as expected This works great! Let's try to automate it with a Macro: Place the circle.png image, with the circle back to red Edit the circle.png file elsewhere so the circle colour is now blue Start recording a Macro Select the placed image layer with the Move Tool Press the Replace Image button, chose the circle.png image again The circle is now blue as expected Stop recording the Macro Edit the circle.png file so the circle is now purple Run the Macro You'd expect the placed image to change into purple but it remains blue instead It get's even weirder, continuing from above: Manually select the placed image layer with the Move Tool Use the Replace Image button to select the circle.png which is purple as you recall from above The placed image changes to purple as expected Run the macro we created above The placed image colour goes back to blue even though the blue source file no longer exists! If more details are needed do let me know. Thanks! EDIT Here's another thing to try as a follow up to the above: Restore the circle.png to red again Place it in the Affinity document Create another unrelated image, with the same pixel dimension to simplify, call it unrelated.png Edit the circle.png to blue Start recording a new Macro Select the placed image layer with the Move Tool Use the Replace Image button to select the unrelated.png for the sole purpose/hope of "clearing cache/buffer" Deselect the layer, and reselect it again, just to be sure the Macro will select the one Use the Replace Image button again, choose circle.png Deselect and stop recording Run the Macro Same thing happens, no image replacement, even with the extra step I'd think that trying to replace the placed image with another with the same name could be causing the issue, but that's not the case, even by choosing an intermediate unrelated image file won't help. :/
  17. Hello, today I ordered Affinity Photo 1.5.2 and received a link to download the program and a container with some makros. I tried to install the makros as described. Each makro file ends with .afmacros. Program Affinity Photo 1.5.2 seeks for *.afmacro without the s at the end. Renaming the makros does not help at all. It turns out in Error: wrong file format can*t open. Any sugestion on this? Matthias
  18. How do you import these new macro packs into Affinity nad how do you load plugins into the program.It was a lot easier with Photoplus X8
  19. Hi, I am trying to record some macros. However, I cannot select multiple layers and group them while recording. Am I getting something wrong or is this not a capability? Thanks.
  20. I've had several goes at this, and it happens every time ... I have an image with two layers, and the top one is selected. I've recorded a macro to do the following: - increase the canvas size to 200% +10 pixels (two operations) - move the top layer over to the right-hand edge of the canvas - flatten the image It works OK until I close the Library panel and re-open it (without necessarily closing and restarting AP) -- the transform parameters have changed, and have to be changed back to make the macro work properly. I'm running Windows 7, btw. These are the parameters as recorded: ... and these are the parameters on re-opening: I use this process for creating stereo pairs from separate source images, and it's a very fiddly affair when there are several (or many!) pairs to process. I'd previously used a script in Paint Shop Pro without problems.
  21. An animation project has led me to the conclusion that the ability to build stacks with the macro feature would be a vary useful feature. In my case, I have exported image sequences out of Apple motion which can contain as many as 500 .openexr's. (sometimes more) These must be combined into stacks of 20 apiece. I have not discovered yet a batch/macro to expedite this particular workflow.
  22. Good afternoon. I bought Photo and the Neat Image plugin, yesterday. For the most part, they are both exactly what I wanted. :-) However, when I try to record a macro in Photo using a plugin step. i.e. with the Neat Image plugin, the macro appears to record properly and can be saved. However, it stops during play at the plugin step (actually, I used only that single step for the macro); The macro does not cause the plugin to run the steps I specified, nor does the macro return to Photo. It seems that either Photo does not record the plugin actions I selected into the macro, that the macro did not send the plugin actions back to the macro recorder, or that the running of the macro does not send the relevant commands to the plugin when the macro is played. So, when the macro is run, it stops in the plugin rather than executing the plugin’s actions I had assumed I’d recorded. This is a huge problem when one has many images for which a Photo user wants to use the plugin to perform, say, noise reduction, rather than Photo’s own NR. Could you tell me if this is a bug in Photo, a bug in Neat Image, or that, perhaps, I’ve missed something in the recording of the macro for my batch? Thanks. Trevor Jacques.
  23. Hi I've seen this video about macros https://vimeo.com/202743232 But I can't do the preseted in the video, when I clic in the layer when recording, pops up a message saying that I cannot record "set current selection" what I'm doing bad? I use Ap 1.5.1.54 in windows 10
  24. Apply image and color ranges from ps in ap macros Hi everyone I've been working in a way for making apply image and color ranges from photoshop in affinity photo and finally I've done a macro with a function like that. Affinity photo doesn't have an option for making selections of CMY, but photoshop in color ranges has these options and rgb and highlights, midtones and shadows which ap has. I've done a macro with similar functions for apply image and three macros for making selections of CMY. How to use 1.Import macros 2.Select your current image in which you are working (obviosly) 3.Apply the macro apply image and it'll pop up a sliders for adjusting settings like midtones (gamma) shadows and highlights. These settings are for showing or hidding parts of the mask. 4.Apply and adjustment layer like curves and drag the generated mask into the curves as a child layer. 5.Now you will see the mask in black and white and you can alt + clic to see the mask. 6.adjust the parameters of curves 7. See magic For the CMY macros you can select your image and apply the macro for see the CMY selections for fine tunning and after selection you can add an adjustment layer like curves and i'll mask automatically the CMY selections. I hope this be useful for you. Selections CMY and apply image.zip
  25. Hi, no press on you ;) Hope you enjoyed vacation you deserved for the AP Win success B) Great job guys. Just please could you tell us when to expect 1.5.2 AP for Win? Will it also include improved Macro functions? Thanks for information :rolleyes: Jindra
