  1. Hello, this has been an issue in all previous versions i have tried (trial). Now i bought Afinity Photo and want to report :) when opening a file, I use quicklook. after closing Quicklook the Open window closes focus, so I have to click inside the Open dialog manually to open a file. I would expect this: open Open dialog use quicklook to open/browse a file I want close Quicklook hit Enter to open selected file - and this is what I cannot do. I need to click inside Open dialog window first thanks!
  2. Each time I launch Affinity Photo (1.4 from App Store) it seems to do a network request in the background to "s3-1.amazonaws.com" over port 443 (https). I don't think this is necessary (at least I don't see a reason), I also didn't find an option to disable this behaviour. Note: I do not show the "Welcome" screen during launch (so there's no reason to fetch example graphic files either)
  3. Hello, I like the software you're doing, at least a viable alternative to photoshop, thanks for this, but I run on a small ssd and I have to be carefull with my datas. And I cannot understand how this software can be so heavy on the disk ? Yet it use 152 mb in ram at startup, so the code isn't that dirty.. Some very complex cg softwares take less storage space while being 100 time more complicated so, is there something wrong with my copy or with the packaging ? Thanks Ela
  4. Hey After spending my entire morning trying to get the affinity apps to work on my macs I found out that using .icc profiles in system settings which were produced by dispcalGUI crashes both affinity apps instantly on startup! Switching to the default uncalibrated system profile everything works but of course this is not a solution. This happens with both my macs, macbook pro (early 2008, 4gb, ssd), mac mini (mid 2011, 16gb, ssd, 2 cinema displays) os is 10.10.5 on both, fresh installs btw, calibrated with spyder2 colorimeter using dispcalGUI. I attached one cinema display icc. Using this on your own system will of course result in shifted colors, but the crashing issue can hopefully be traced to it's roots. Selecting this as a system default profile in os x display settings will get the crashing-party started with AP and AD, but as soon as you select the os default all will be well again. Phase one's capture one Pro has no problem while using the same profile. I have nothing else to test against anymore, since I just ditched Adobe Ps and Ai... I need help with this issue badly. I need AP working asap. All the best, Peter display1-32714cdd2cbaa65740cc7d4a58de20b9.icc.zip
  5. Hi guys, since I got Photo I wonder how to use the FFT Denoise filter the way it’s supposed to be used. I never heard of it before and I can’t find a explanation for dummies or a tutorial for it. Someone – please enlighten me! :D Have a nice weekend Dennis
  6. 1st effort at photo comp. in Affinity Photo...not too big a learning curve ( having migrated from Photoshop)...I'm liking the software
  7. hello, i think i found a bug in the way the crop tool (of affinity photo) shows width and height of the crop marquee when dragging it to the desired size. in the crop tool toolbar, above the image, the two numbers change erratically, from the right values to nonsense numbers, then they show the right size again, then wrong again, while continuously dragging any of the marquee's handles. the three attached screenshot should show the behaviour. this appears to be true for both "unconstrained" and "original ratio" modes, and both resizing the marquee to a bigger or smaller size, no matter if the snap feature is set to on or off. i am working with affinity photo version 1.3.5, downloaded from the app store, on osx 10.9.5. thank you stefano
  8. Hey, so I'm not totally clear on how Affinity handles objects/layers. When I resize a bitmap layer, upscaling it, does it retain the same pixel data and is just enlarged? Within Photoshop, upscaling a bitmap object without first turning it into a Smart Object will inflate the image with more pixels. So are bitmap object in both Designer and Photo acting somewhat like PS Smart Objects..? Please explain! Thanks! JA
  9. Hey there, this is more of a very very tiny feature request. If you change the brush softness (and size) via the ⌃+⌘-keys and mouse drag I noticed if the cursor is near the bottom of the screen you're literally bound by the hardwares edge – the adjustment stops there and you have to repeat the step if you want the brush to be softer. Maybe virtually expand the range of the cursor so one can click and drag further, or something? I don’t know. :) I’m not sure how else to describe it, but I hope you get what I’m talking about. Cheers Dennis
  10. Hi everyone! I'm learning photo processing with Affinity Photo, and actually I don't have much experience with photo processing at all. So I found official tutorials extremely useful! But I can't find much tutorials related to specific area - color toning techniques for portraits. I believe it's a kind of specific because often people and background objects are processed differently to achieve some artistic effects and get high quality works. Of course, there are many tutorials for LR and Photoshop, but it's twice harder to learn something new that way. I'd appreciate any links or hints on how to dive into this. Just a couple of toning samples I liked in attachments.
  11. Hey guys, I ran into this Photo beta bug, where the Gradient Adjustment Layer just won't accept my desired colour and changes it to something similar but still different. I also tried different approaches like setting the colour as a swatch in the swatches panel first and use it, but it’s the same. Copied the layer into a new document resulted the same – but the values of the changed colour where completely different again. I hope this short clip demonstrates the problem … https://youtu.be/DH1jj_Nv_Y8 Cheers and have a nice weekend Dennis ;)
  12. Hey guys, I’m not sure if this bug was already reported, the title already says it. I added a Vibrance Adjustment layer for my image. When I type 66 % as a value it changes to 65 % right after I hit enter to confirm, same happens for 33 % and various other numbers, while numbers like 24 % strangely work. I can adjust the value per dragging the slider, but it's hindering my workflow a tiny bit. Just wanted to let you guys know. ;) It's just 1 % buuut … I’d just like it to be fast and accurate, you know? :P Haha, so it's true what they say about us. :D Cheers Dennis
  13. Since a few weeks, I can't launch either designer or photo (bought all on the mac app store). I tried to remove them, trash and use appdelete and Dr cleaner to trash also the files associated with. Now when I reinstall, they do not launch at all. Sometimes, the app say it's already installed in the App store purchases but it is not. Sometimes it install in another folder than the app folder. What can I do ? I own a lot of apps from the mac app store and never have this problem (yep once with hype, but the reinstall after deconnect and reconnect my account did the job).
  14. Hello, I'm unable to launch neither Designer or Photo since the upgrade to El Capitan. They quit at launch. What must I do ?
  15. Hey guys, I made this wallpaper today, as you can see it is AHS themed. I like the outcome even if it is nothing too special, what do you think? I worked with pretty much only live filters, with a great performance! You can see some of my layer mess on the screenshot lol. I hope you like it, feel free to download it and use it, the size is for iPhone 6 ^^ I don't know if external links are allowed, if yes I would provide a link to the google drive download :)
  16. I dowloaded and started to incorporate Affinity Photo into my workflow. I must say I am very impressed by this software and fully expect to use it instead of Photoshop (Adobe CC goodbye :-)). Having using the full version for a few days (but the beta before) I have found two things I use in photoshop missing (or I failed to find the function in AP). 1. Shake reduction filter. Does not do well on most images but in some cases it can be a savior. I would love this in AP. 2. Radial blur filter using the zoom method. This is a very useful filter when trying ti create (or improve) light rays (e.g. God rays from clouds) But so far this is the only thing I found missing (or haven't found) in AP. Now I only wish for an Affinity Lightroom replacement! :-) Thanks for a great software!!

    My personal logo in Affinity

    Versión Man of Steel :D Designer (vector) and Photo (effects). I love this software.
  18. Hello I am working on a series of product images. These images will be displayed side by side in a web shop. The finished images are simple composites made up of two separate images. I want to make each of the finished images have the same proportion and product positions. I am using guides to do this. Rather than go through the process of setting up guides for each of the different product documents, is there a way I can copy and paste guides from one document to another? Cheers
  19. Hello, I encountered this issue when I had multiple documents open in the Develop Persona in Affinity Photo. When I show Shadow/Highlight/Tone clipping and switch to a different document, the behavior of the buttons becomes inverted so that it shows clipping on the other documents when the buttons are "off" rather than "on". Thanks, - Tony
  20. I would like to see some function for easily switching between before/after preview in the adjustments panels. Keyboard shortcut, toggle or maybe split view like in the filter panels.

    Affinity Photo crashes on opening TIF

    Hey, i created a panorama with Hugin(2014). I exported it as PNG and it opened in Photo just fine. But the dynamic range was poor. So i exported a TIF. HDR or not, LZW compressed or not, everytime i open the file in Photo, it crashes. Filesize is around 400MB and opens just fine in Photoshop. I attached a download to said file, maybe you can figure something out? https://db.tt/R6gpzTuQ Thank you for your consideration :)
  22. I'd like the ability to remove tools from the standard palette (in both Photo and Designer), especially subset items. There are so many tools that I don't use that I'd like to remove them, and I'd like the ability to pull commonly used subset items (like Rectangle, Ellipse, etc. from the Shapes tool) and place them on the "main" level. I'm hoping removing unused tools would also remove them from the keyboard shortcuts/toggles (in Photo, for example, "B" cycles between four different tools, two of which I don't use).
  23. Any time I try to open any file in Affinity Photo, I receive the attached error message. I'm on OS X 10.11. I've repaired my permissions. No luck.
  24. I am trying to work with tiff files that are CMYK and fairly large. The "large" part isn't the problem - it's the fact that my files are improperly shown, just one part of it and never the whole image. I'm sure that there is nothing wrong with the file because they open just fine in photoshop right off the bat. Please help me out, I really need to get this done for a big project and would like to go Adobe-free as soon as humanly possible.

    No file previews in El Capitan

    I did a clean install of OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) and don't have any file previews in Photo or Designer. I'm running the latest MAS versions of both apps and neither have file previews for icons or previews in Quicklook.
