  1. Hello everyone! I'm new to the Affinity scene and love it so far. I've been a Lightroom user for years and decided that it's time to put the presets and sliders aside for a while and really take control of my editing. Enter Affinity. The purpose of this thread is to discuss workflows used when editing multiple photos from a photoshoot. I can't seem to figure out a truly effective way to edit 50+ photos without creating a mess. Any pointers, videos, web articles, or books are welcome. Thank you all for the support and I look forward to reading your responses.
  2. The download instructions for the free macro pack say "Just click the download button to get your free macro pack. To install, open the .afmacros file or alternatively import from your Library panel." If I try to open a .afmacros file, I get a 'Failed to open file' dialog that tells me, "The file is not an Affinity document."
  3. I create a new document. I create a layer of colorful flowers. I duplicate that layer. I adjust the top layer to Black and white. If I erase on the top layer, the color below shows through. Now I create a mask on the top layer and paint on it in black and nothing happens. So I try painting in white. Nothing happens. What in the world am I missing? Thanks
  4. How would I go about stacking these photos. What is the difference between Focus merge and stacking. I am trying to learn how to make gigapixel photos.
  5. @dmstraker @James Ritson Hi, i really can't get behind about Affinity's concept of "Blend Options" / Anti-Aliasing / Coverage Map. In the screenshot, you can see a totally simple rectangular shape, no fill, 1 pixel stroke of 50% gray. The shape is intentional rotated to stimulate anti-aliasing, utilizing a (default) coverage map. Key question: in case anti-aliasing is "forced OFF". What criteria are used by affinity to decide if pixel is visible or transparent? Based on the default coverage map, i would assume that pixel needs to be >=50% covered b
  6. See image attached, in the bottom left corner when I open a RAW image (Nikon D800 .nef), there's a square/block that's just a re-rendered copy from another part of the image. It goes away when I close the image and open it again and only happens for the first image I open during an editing session.
  7. pattern layers can be layered in a graphic and bit can be erased out to show the layers underneath which is quite useful but what I would like to do is apply a gradient mask to a pattern layer so I could at any time go back in and adjust the gradient mask to adjust the transparent areaof the pattern layer. Currently when you apply a gradient mask to a pattern layer the pattern no longer repeats. I may be asking for things that are not possible but I would be really great if a gradient mask could become a pattern layer and be nested as a child layer of another pattern layer so you could adjus
  8. Today while downloading purchases from my account via the app, if the progress-bar is clicked it resets the progress and the download starts over. I realize for a lot of users it's not a big deal, since they probably have very fast internet downloads. I didn't intentionally click on the progress-bar (%), but hit it instead of the view license. For me this is somewhat of a big deal. My internet download speed is 3MBS max. When the download is nearly done after taking about 20 mins, will cause a person to rip their few remaining hairs out of not only there head, but nose and ears too. I'm s

  10. Using AP 1.6.4.104 on Win10 Pro 64-bit (build 17134.228), running 32GB on AMD Ryzen 5 1600 six-core at 3.20GHz) I was learning from your tutorials and when learning about masking when I used the Flood Seletion tool, AP appeared to stall with the message of "Not Responding" at the top of the screen. Can't believe I don't have enough memory, so what could it be. Only AP and Firefox (v.61.0.2, 64bit) are running. Any thoughts???
  11. Hi all, I would like to give my opinion on how I see the market. So considering Adobe does not have interest in the Linux market, you guys could at least take the opportunity and make a version of Affinity Photo for Linux, which would be a really nice alternative to Photoshop. I've tested and looked at a few Photoshop for Linux (mainly open source ones), but unfortunately none of them really stand that well. I've been using Photoshop since 2007 while I was in college, and I still use it at work, so it is really challenge to find out one to use at home that functionality wise, shortcuts, a
  12. Why can I not paint in Affinity Photo? It is as if the program does not register that I am putting a black paint stroke on a layer...or any other color stroke for that matter.
  13. Can anyone recommend a cheap graphics card that complies with the requirements for Affinity Photo's recommended hardware specs for graphics accelleration. John
  14. When sampling a color with the paint brush tool by pressing the ALT key, always the global color as it can be seen on the screen is sampled. If there are brightening or darkening layers above the current layer, the sampled color is brightened or darkened once more, which ends up in a completely wrong color. The actual color picker tool has a source setting "Current layer" which samples the correct color. So either the paint brush tool should consider the color picker tool's source setting when sampling a color or it needs an own setting for sampling colors.  There is a dark b
  15. Hi all, I'm fairly new with Affinity (loving it so far), but I can't find a way to see the values of an 32-bit image in the Color Sampler Info panel. No matter what mode I use it seems to always clip to 255 which is not the case of my image. Cheers, Juan
  16. Hello, Where am I going wrong, please? I want to cut out the policeman’s cap. 1 I crop the image so I can see just the cap. 2 I cut out using the pen tool 3 I click mask 4 I Cmd-C and Cmd-V into a new Affinity Photo file. See RBhBwyuhb6K3E2Y1AnDVaIsa9z4hkk The issue I have is that this takes over the cropped elements of the file. Help appreciated! Will
  17. There seems no simple way to add a background color to a textbox from within Affinity Photo. Am I missing something? I've enclosed an image below to display what I am trying to do but seem unable. Thank you for your assistance. Doug .
  18. Hi, In Sketch and Photoshop it's possible to make timeline animations. Are there any plans for Affinity? I'm talking about something like this: https://timeline.animaapp.com/ Regards, David
  19. Having issues when trying to paste. I first make a marquee selection in a photo, long tap with one finger, select copy, long tap with one finger, select paste, and it pastes the whole image in another layer. It does not paste what I had selected. Even if I take that same selection and inverse it and select cut, it cuts the whole picture. It’s as if it doesn’t know I have a selection. I’ve been trying to figure this out for a long, long time and now I’ve just given up. Please help.
  20. Hello Affinity Team, Is there a way to preview the cursor/brush size while painting or brushing? I understand the iPad doesn't have hover support but at least while brushing, I hope to see the boundaries of the brush. Thank you so much!
  21. An oddly specific bug I just discovered in Photo - unsure of whether this shows up in Designer too. While sketching out an ornate frame design, I used the symmetry tool with a brush, and everything proceeded as usual. I then used Shift to create a straight line and noticed that the stroke automatically coloured certain parts red - screenshot attached. I tried a few different brushes and ended up with the same result (as you can see), but only when using my tablet pen/stylus - this didn't happen when clicking with the mouse and holding Shift. The layers I worked on didn't have any FX
  22. Now on Skillshare here: http://skl.sh/2GjWV8q Note: I have renamed this class. It was "Create a Space-Themed Illustration". This class covers a range of easy to master skills, from cooking, to 3D rendering, to digital painting. Part 1 – The Pancake Moon In Part 1 of the class, you will learn how to: make pancakes in your kitchen using Affinity Photo, make equi-rectangular projection texture and bump maps out of the pancake's cratered surface using Cheetah 3D, wrap the texture and bump maps around a sphere, and render your pancake
  23. I've always loved Lightzone's Zone Mapper - which is based loosely on Ansel Adam's zone/tone idea. The idea is extremely intuitive .. but. the execution has an efficient and productive UI. Despite having used Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, Krita, Affinity Photo, etc .. I still keep the free Lightzone installed for the zone (tone) mapper. (I also love the very easy and intuitive shape tool which acts as a mask for applying any filter or operation .. with adjustable non-destructive shape and edge transition) Here's a set of video tutorials https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xq1tyuZXbpo&
  24. Every time I want to start affinity photo it crashes. After first installation it had the same problems but at once open a file direkt in affinity it starts. Now the same bug comes up. It does not help to install an older version, every time the same bug. Designer and Publisher works great and even in publisher I can switch to the photo persona and it works. Maybe some base files are corrupted any chance to delete them or is there a safe start option for photo. If I open affinity photo by apple photo edit in affinity photo it starts and works, but only for this session. I am working on a
  25. The official MAS downloaded Designer v1.9.1 update tells BETA (?) ... BTW, same for the Photo pendant!
