  1. I've just installed Affinity Photo 1.3.5 (from the App Store) and have a problem downloading the samples. The only ones that seems to work are The Visit & the Elephant King. The others acquire a small red X when I click on them. I'm running OS 10.9.5. It's not a huge problem per se but I would like to be reassured that I haven't downloaded a faulty version... I also note that the full screen toggle keyboard command is not Cmd Shift F as stated in the dropdown window. It is, in fact, Ctrl Cmd F. It remains to be seen if there are more malfunctions/inconsistencies. A cursory preliminary
  2. Using PSD in Designer 1.9.0 for windows, creates white lines in export files' I got a mockup psd file and opened it in AD. When I export the file, it has white lines in the embedded image. I got the mockups from here:https://smashmockup.com/gold-frame-mockup-psd/ I don't have Affinity Photo. I have attached screenshots. I am a total noob at this, so it's something obvious, I would really love guidance.
  3. It isn't super critical, but I cannot get the "show mask as ..." drop down to work when using the quick mask. For example, "show mask as black". These are the Affinity Photo help directions I'm trying to follow: "To change Quick Mask view: On the Toolbar, click the arrow next to Quick Mask Enabled and then select a Show As option from the pop-up menu." I get as far as this in the instructions, but can't get this to work. I attached a screen image below. Thank you
  4. Hi, I'm new here. Before I start to purchase something from Serif Affinity, I was wondering if Affinity Photo has a pixel grid upon an extreme zoom (something like 900% or more). I'm way behind with the software available, as I have PhotoPlus X7 and I haven't got anything at all from Affinity 😕 Unless Affinity Designer can do something similar. I'm more used to doing small to large scale pixel art, than doing actual pictures. Thankyou.
  5. Been watching a few Youtube videos while I wait for my Affinity Designer book to come, and in the process have made a few lil graphics, playing around with child objects, gradients, the add/subtract/divide functions and transparency.
  6. Greetings I am very experienced in Affinity Photo, but now am trying to give remote help to a few people who have recently purchased AP. They have varying amounts of experience with Adobe products, but basically need to start at the beginning. My query is mainly about - the 92 videos, which at one point were renamed the Legacy videos and are found in a few places, including Affinity PHOTO: Video Tutorials (miguelboto.com) Are all of them still valid, eg some things will have changed and presumably some of the originals are no longer as useful (or indeed valid?) for use in Vers
  7. Chinese Character Practice Grid: My Very First Creation with Affinity Publisher Disclaimer: I’m a total newbie. I couldn’t find any tutorials relevant to the task, so I decided to just “wing” it. However, I am quite pleased with the results, simple as they are. (1) I don’t know if it’s possible to draw different types of lines in Affinity Publisher, so I designed the grid itself in Microsoft Word, a variation on the traditional jeougongger 九宮格 “nine square grid” approach. (2) I imported a smaller grid into Affinity Publisher, copied it once using Ctrl-C, then pasted mul
  8. I've set up my master pages for my publishing project. I've checked my formatting multiple times and everything looks to be set the way I want it. When I am pulling in my text and images from external files, Publisher is ignoring my settings, specifically my text flow settings. I've taken a picture of my master settings for the page I'm loading and what my loaded page looks like without the text flow working. Since I'm new to this I know there is some simple setting on the program that I'm overlooking. I hope those of you with more experience can help me.
  9. Hello everyone, I'm new to Affinity publisher and would really appreciate it if someone could link me to some good, step by step tutorials please? I've been onto YouTube but I end up selecting random videos so there isn't any real continuity and flow to the tutorials. Thank you very much 😊
  10. This tutorial is for you when you're just starting out with Affinity Photo. This video covers as many basics and essentials which I believe any Affinity Photo user should know. I've added timestamps below the video for EASY NAVIGATION! Keep in mind that this is not an in-depth course. As a bonus I've included my Workflow Booster Cheatsheet (in the video description on YouTube), to at least 3X your workflow. Enjoy!

  11. Hi all, I'm Greg, and I run a game development company called Boolean Games. Always liked the Vector art style, so thought I'd give it a go myself. Initially tried Illustrator but disliked the pricing etc, currently on a trial with Affinity so far but I really like it so I'll end up buying it This is roughly the level that I'm at but the inspiration was my 2 year old daughter and a possible design for the feature wall in her newly decorated bedroom.

  15. Hi loves! Super affinity designer newbie. I make logos for clients & for some reason having a hard time exporting to SVG.. I’ve sliced before on most of my designs & I usually have to do it a few times until it magically works. The specific design I created is like another I did & the SVG export worked. For some reason I can’t figure it out. I bought the book & super love it... but it doesn’t go into a lot of detail about exporting sadly. Please help. I will add file & hopefully someone can get it! I know I’m doing something wrong if I have to try to 20 times before no
  16. Hey all! Just started trying out both Affinity products on Windows today and I've run into a snag with Designer. It seems that I cannot get my file to export as an SVG properly - the "embedded document" portion does not export. Is there a checkbox or step I'm missing?? I am able to export everything as a PNG if I don't resize on export - if I try to resize then the embedded doc portion again does not show up. I've attached the files I get so you can see what's going on as well as a screenshot of my layers in designer. Could also use a tip on how to set th
  17. Hi there! I'm in charge of the senior photos (and yes, I know, the lightning is not perfect but It’s the best I can do with one shot box). This is a test image and I will try to get rid of the ripples in the greenscreen, but I am afraid it won't get much better. Can you help me find a way to efficiently remove the greenscreen from a sh*tton of photos? Maybe with batch processing? Sadly, I'm kind of a newbie and I appreciate ANY help and tips! TYSM! <3
  18. Hey guys, i've been making some designs on affinity designer that i want to make into stickers some day. I've made about 4 or 5 of them but now i realize that i may have made em just a tad small. most are 7 in wide by 3 in tall. i think one or two may be 7.5 x 3 in. Anyways now im learning that these types of rectangular sticker designs would be best if they were 8 x 3 in. My question is what is the best way to resize em? would i need to start all over? should i just stretch em with a loss in quality? is there even a way to resize them without opening a new file in the correct sizi
  19. I dont know how but I somehow managed to turn of the editing panel on the right side and I am kinda new in this :'D How do I turn it on ?
  20. Is there a way to emulate the duplicate tool in photoshop? i tried drawing a simple box then copy pasted it. Once the selection appeared i tried to move it. Didn’t work. thanks
  21. I was disappointed when I imported a photo selected one person of four whose face fell into shadow and was much darker than the others. in photoshop I would select the face and use exposure to lighten it in balance with the others. Could not do this in Affinity. am I missing something? Thanks
  22. Two questions. I chose to change a couples things to my photo but don’t see where to click to save the changes. And I had seen lighting effects but now I can’t find them. can’t find this in any tutorials. Thanks
  23. How do I submit a request in affinity forum I am trying to find out if it is possible to make a slideshow in affinity photo
  24. Hello, What is the most efficient way to accomplish the following: (1) Create/refine a selection (2) Make an adjustment to it (3) Be able to go back and apply other adjustments to the same selection later on #3 is where I'm struggling. Thanks for your patience in helping a newbie.
