  1. I have noticed that the photo browser inside the apps is very slow to open anything. Compared to Pixelmator Pro, it opens up instantly, -all photos with albums, favorites, and recents. I think that this is an area that desperately needs improvement.
  2. Is there any information about the missing media browser?
  3. Presently, it appears the Media Browser does not have the ability to change the sort order of the file shown in a folder. This would be extremely helpful, especially when the files are labeled with date and time stamps, so order can be established during the editing process. Presently the order is determined by the slot on the drive itself, which can vary as to order. I would mainly like this in Affinity Photo as that's what I use most, but I suspect the Media Browser is in the suite of desktop apps.
  4. Hello, I enjoy using Affinity Designer, especially for creating assets for online media. However, I would love to see some improvements on the Media Browser in Affinity Designer. It looks like the only way to add folders to the Media Browser is physically dragging a folder from the finder which makes it difficult when using the application at full screen. The Media Browser disappears when I click out from the app. If I make the app window small and try not to click the area outside the app window before dragging the folder, I can barely make it, but I find it's quite frustrating, I hope the Media Browser can be attached to Studio either Left or Right side so that I believe it won't disappear when I click out the app. I also hope there will be a way to add/remove folders from the Media Browser without leaving the app. Thanks, Ko
  5. This is small request; could the media browser in Affinity Photo and Design be tweaked to allow it to remember the size and position of the window. thanks karl
  6. When you have AD and AP installed, it would be nice if when you add a folder into the Media Browser in one app it would also be available in the Media Browser in the other app. EDIT: also, I didn't even realize that AD or AP had this until today - it's a GREAT addition...would be nice if it could be a lockable window also...when I tab to Finder, the window disappears from AD/AP which is unusual and makes the drag/drop awkward as it won't appear again until AD/AP gets focus again.
  7. In the Affinity Designer, the Media browser is a great tool but not so great. There should be 3 more features. 1. Add custom folders by clicking any [+] sign, instead of only dragging folders into it. 2. The folders in thumbnail section are not clickable. only tree expanding is possible to access content inside of folder. Please make folders click able and add [back] and [up] buttons too. (I'm sure you understand what i mean) 3. Also add a small option of sort by [name],,[date],[type] etc. 4. Please add keyboard arrows use too.. to browse in tree menu / thumbnail. There is a bug too.. I will also post this into BUGS section. If we right click on Folders' thumbnail. we see two options. "open" and "view in finder". That Open only blanks the thumbnail view B)
  8. Hi Look at the screenshot below, the Media Browser is unreadable: the text is dark and the background is dark. This is an out of the box installation with no property changes. Best regards BlauerClaus
  9. Dear Friends, I am just bought Affinity. Obviously I am new to it. I have done a lot of Photoshop. Is there a tutorial for using the media browser? I was unable to find one. Thanks.
  10. Could you please allow items parsed by the Media Browser to be dragged into or added to a new image stack. Items found in the Aperture or Photos library do not seem accessible when creating a new stack, only items/images from normal folders - not databases. Thank you.
  11. I am really creasy about my workflow and structure in my folder and media browser. What is, when I dislike my structure in the media browser? I know you can delete the folder by ctrl + klick on the folder, but some people did not find this hiding function. Could we make it easier? Could you integrate the delete function in the media browser as an icon like the >>trashcan<<? Cheers DAD
  12. I am working with Affinity Photo and Lightroom. I would like to save layered tiff or psd dokuments in AP, so that i can find them and work on them back in Lightroom. AP is not able to do that. So i have to save my pictures in afphoto-format. But now there is no way to find my pictures again besides from the Finder. Even the AP-own Media Browser does not show afphoto-files!!! How can that be? Is there a media browser in the market, that let´s me find my afphoto-pictures again? Thanx..
  13. Couple of things that I found myself wanting to do with the Media Browser... 1. I wanted to be able to see (at the very least) my other AD documents so I could place them into a project as an embedded doc. Currently it looks like the Media Browser only sees images like .jpeg and .png. 2. I would love to be able to dock the media browser for easier asset access. Cheers
  14. Remove the simple media browser from Affinity that is useless and create a new piece of software like a mini LightRoom where it is possible to do things like: - Browse your photos placed on medias like a NAS - Import pictures from camera and pick photos to keep and remove duplicate pictures after they have been compared and rated - Adjust RAW settings - Integrate it closely to Affinity so it is easy to edit marked photos I am really missing this to make my workflow better. Apples Photo does not help me and LightRoom works best with PS. /Michael
  15. In the media browser,the Aperture library shows up on it.When I click on it ,nothing happens ( I have a lot of things in the Aperture library).When I click on pictures,files that are in the finder open up. I fiqure it's a setting in Aperture that I probably have wrong.Thanks MEB and J Fisher for your help so far.I'm getting close!
  16. Am I doing something wrong here? Media Browser in neither MAS Designer or MAS Photo will show the previews for .afdesign files or .afphoto files. It shows everything else (well, except for RIFF, but I didn't expect that) but no design or photo images are showing up. It also does not show .svg files. I don't really use Media Browser so I'm not sure if this is something new.
  17. I appreciate the possibility to open Aperture catalogue photos directly from the Media Browser window. But there's a big caveat : presently, only preview JPEG files are shown and opened in Photo whereas the referenced files (RAW in my case) stay invisible. Bug or feature ? Best regards Volker
  18. That's it. Follows the long story, which you may not need to read to answer my above question :-) Hopefully I'll explain myself clear. And thanks in advance! Muchas gracias! I have been for the last year or so running a solution combo that includes Apple Aperture and Pixelmator, after abandoning Adobe Photoshop... which I used in my practice since v1.0. I am currently trying to include Affinity Photo in my workflow. Yes, I can tell Aperture to open files in Affinity, but it is super cumbersome to have to use the Save As... command in order to save the .PDS file that Aperture sends to APh. APh won't defaults to the file's origin folder, etc. So, I'm trying to test the Media Browser in the hope the workflow may be more streamlined. Now, strangely, Affinity Photo (APh) shows in the Media Browser an old Aperture Library that I used to run in a drive that's not even running anymore. The Aperture Library resides in an external drive, not in the "blessed" Pictures folder. Have any of you run into this situation? How do I point a Media Browser to an Aperture Library located elsewhere but in the "blessed" Pictures folder? Would you kindly help a fella?

  19. Photo does not have permission to access my Photos folder. How do I fix this?
  20. When opening an image in the Photos library, is there a way to select the RAW instead of the JPEG?
  21. I posted this in the AP Feature Request but no joy, so have moved it to here in the hope that someone can shed some light ... When Media Browser opens it displays entries for Aperture and iPhoto libraries, for Apple's Photo, and for Apple's Picture folder. However, the Aperture and iPhoto libraries will not open, I haven't even opened Photos and intend to keep it that way, and what MB shows as present in Pictures does not tally with what is actually there (some content does not show). I had some success by creating an Aperture library in Pictures and dragging it to MB, where it seems to be OK, but dealing with all my libraries (I have several in Aperture for reasons of workflow) this way would be a pain in the you-know-what. So, two questions: Why don't the default Aperture/iPhoto libraries open; and if I'm going to have to populate MB with new versions via Pictures, how can I clear up the MB window by deleting the useless default files? (I know that you can remove folders that you have dragged into MB by using ctrl click, but the only thing that you can do with the default Aperture, iPhoto and (I guess) Photo libraries isReload). Thanks!
  22. Hi all. Just fired up the beta and looked for a way to browse media. Opening the Media Browser, I notice that: 1. It's showing me a "Pictures" folder at the top of the dialog and then a "Voila" folder (of unknown origin) as its contents. But there's no path to show me where these reside. 2. Double-clicking on the Voila folder does nothing. Right-clicking on it and saying Open makes it disappear, but the top of the dialog still says I'm looking at Pictures. 3. There are no navigation controls. There's no way to go up to the parent directory, or browse volumes on the system. If there's anything we all should appreciate after dealing with Finder's continuing design flaws, it's the importance of location, location, location... and proper sorting. In a browser, I'd expect to be able to navigate the file system, see the path of whatever container I'm looking at, and to have items sorted correctly (folders first, then individual items) so we can drill down through them. A nice-to-have would be the option of switching between a list (treeview) and icons/thumbnails. Anyway, great work Affinity guys! Really excited to have alternatives to Adobe. Gavin
  23. Some time back I posted that Media Browser listed my Aperture libraries but would not open them. The response was that this is on the road map. It still will not open these (nor an iPhoto library, but that's to be expected) but does open images in the Apple Pictures folder and in folders created by my camera download software. Is this still on the road map? If so, any idea when it may be addressed? Thanks
  24. I have several iPhoto and Aperture libraries in several places on my computer, some on the Boot SSD, and others on a regular HDD. The media Browser correctly displays the libraries in the Pictures folder, but It won't show other libraries properly. I tried dragging them as suggested by the onscreen text on the media browser, and although it imported the libraries, they did not behave as normal libraries, instead allowing me to navigate the bundle's folder structure instead of presenting me the projects oin the libraries. I could however tunnel through and find the proper folder, but its a PITA. This is what it looks like: Additionally I tried adding symbolic links of the Libraries on the non-boot HDD into the Pictures folder of the Boot SSD where the other libraries that work reside, but this also yielded the same results...
  25. Are there any plans on adding the ability to view .eps and .svg files in the media browser?
