  1. A page from a project I've been working on. The violet curve is a spiral with a vector brush applied. Is it possible to keep the appearance when exporting as a PDF without having to rasterise either the whole artboard or just the curve? (If you're wondering, it's from a comic monologue by Billy Bennett, called The Collier's Daughter; you can find it on YouTube and other websites.)
  2. Hi, it is possible to insert an affinity-photo file as file layer like the workflow in Clip-Studio-Paint?
  3. The problem has been present since the release of the V2 version. MacBook Air M1 macOS Sonoma (also happened on Ventura). Only happens if I close the window before developing the photo. If I develop a photo and after developing I go back to Develop Persona and close the window the app does not crash. This happens every time with both hardware acceleration enabled and disabled. I recorded a short video. Nagranie z ekranu 2023-12-2 o 11.27.57.mov
  4. There is a path field in the slice properties of photo's export persona. When I enter an absolute path there, like E:\secondary_project\exports it is converted to E\secondary_project\exports i.e. th colon is omitted. When I export this slice, I am prompted for a path. If I chose e.g. E:\primary_projects\export (just confirming the prompted path) the exported file is stored at: E:\primary_projects\export\E\secondary_projects\export Saving the path without drive letter doesn't help, becaus in this case the leading backslah is omitted. "\secondary_projects\exports" becomes "secondary_projects\exports". As a workaround I save relative paths and chose root directory on export.
  5. I've got something I'm looking at designing and 3D printing some accessories for, but I need to make sure my designs don't get in the way of anything on it. I took a diagram of the layout from the manual and have been working up guides to delineate these areas: The problem is that as far as I'm aware, the only way to see where a guide is is by grabbing it and dragging it a little so its position comes up. I know there's the guides window which displays all of their positions, but it can get a bit crowded and hard to figure out which is which when you have more than a couple. So is there an easier way for me to see where these guides are, like just displaying their positions next to them or something? Or am I mooing up the wrong tree to begin with?
  6. I recently updated Affinity photo 2 to version 2.2.1.2075. By the way, in my antivirus program (V3), every time the Affinity photo program runs, it talks about a problem. When running photo.exe, a remote IP exists, but the remote IP comes out differently. And the original report is different. The problem that I find uncomfortable is that every time I run the Affinity Photo program, they ask me a question, saying that the antivirus program (V3) is a low-security program. I can't set it up so that this questioning procedure doesn't come up in the antivirus program I use. Whenever the Affinity Photo program runs, I have to turn off the warning message. I can't ignore the warning message that the safety is bad, so I'm sending you a question. Please help me on how to solve it.
  7. Working a lot with Moho Pro I saw myself rebuilding scenes I designed in Affinity Designer or Photo with exported images in Moho again. I never have to do that when using Spine to animate as Affinity has this great Spine JSON batch exporter in the Export Persona. So I was missing that when working in Moho. Until now; I've developed a free plugin script for Moho which let's Moho import all layers and exported cropped images from Affinity Photo and/or Designer via the exported spine.json file! For who is using both Spine and Moho, like me, it is even quite far in importing the setup pose with all images as exported from Spine too. Including all transformations of the images and even tinting of images. There are some limitations when importing spine.json files coming from Spine tho (see mohoscripts page for the script), like images which use meshes aren't supported. But the most important features are supported already! [update] Also when the spine.json file has bone data (like files exported from Spine itself, or when using special layer naming in Krita's exporter), the skeleton will be recreated in Moho during import since v1.1.0! But the main reason for making this was to import layers from Affinity tho. And that all works great now! A real time saver. It also works for Krita, Photoshop, After Effects, Gimp etc. when you install an existing export to spine.json script in Krita. The script is free to download. Downloadlink and more information is here: https://mohoscripts.com/script/wp_spine_import And here are some demo's/tutorial videos I just created. Have fun!
  8. Hello, Affinity Photo is awfully lagging and slow on my Macbook Pro. It wasn't awfully lagging and slow before. But now since I have updated to MacOS Sonoma version 14.0, it's lagging and slower than usual. What should I do to make it faster and not lag? Also, I have attached a photo so you can see my performance settings.
  9. Affinity Photo v.2 have a bug where you can't create LUTs to be used for color correction in other softwares. I show here how it is not working but also that it works great in version 1 of Affinity Photo. This problem have been since December 2022 as I can see on the forum and still haven't been fixed.
  10. I'm writing to share some tips, but I also hope Affinity developers will see these and make the Arrange tools easier to use in future versions. I'm working on texture images for 3D models which need to be symmetrical from left to right. Conceptually for me, the easiest thing to do is paint on the left side, duplicate the layer, flip the copy, and mask if necessary. But I've found it exceptionally difficult to get expected behavior from Affinity Photo's Arrange menu items. Keep in mind that all these tips are in the context of using Flip transforms to end up with artwork that is mirrored left-to-right or top-to-bottom. Tip #1: If the layer you want to mirror has a mask, make sure there are visible pixels somewhere at the extreme edges. Photo apparently does not use the current selection as a guide to how you want to flip stuff. So if the layer you need to flip was created by pasting, it might flip according to bounds smaller than your full image width, even if you hit Ctrl-A to select the full image bounds before flipping. As a result, even if the visible pixels mostly fill the layer, the flipped portion can end up the the wrong place. To be sure my flipping will result in a mirror image, I make sure to paint a few visible pixels along the left and right edges when flipping horizontally, or along the top and bottom edges when flipping vertically. Basically I use pixel painting to make sure the layer I'm flipping extends across exactly the full width or height of the image before I flip it. To be fair, Photo's behavior in this regard is not a bug. If you've pasted in something small on a collage and need it to face the other way, you don't want it to jump from one side of the screen to the other when flipped. Tip #2: Temporarily set the layer to full opacity and Normal mode before flipping, if applicable. Today I had a layer with a mask set to Color Burn mode at 10% opacity, and flipping horizontally simply erased the layer's content. I tried several times but always ended up with a blank layer. I wondered if opacity or mode was somehow confusing the program, so I set the layer to Normal mode at 100% opacity, and then flipping worked. Tip #3: If the Arrange menu items are grayed out, lasso- or box-select something to copy and (temporarily) paste. I started a new document from an image I wanted to mirror. After duplicating the Background layer, I found the Arrange menu's transform items all grayed out. In an attempt to enable them, I tried all these things in turn: Made sure the unlocked duplicated layer was selected Hit Ctrl-A to select the full image size Saved and quit and reopened the program Renamed the duplicate layer in case the program prevents you from transforming based on the name "Background" Added a new, empty pixel layer Quit the program again and updated to version 2.2.0 before retrying Nothing worked. Then I used the lasso to copy and paste a small portion of the duplicated layer, and the Arrange menu items came alive. After that I was able to delete the temporarily pasted layer and then flip the duplicated layer.
  11. It is possible to increase/decrease the rotation angle of an object using the scroll wheel of your mouse when hovering over the belonging input field (in steps of 1 degree). With 'Ctrl' pressed, the increment/decrement is 0.1 degree, which is already very helpful. Question: Is there a way to get an even finer increment/decrement of 0.01 degrees? (I often have to align scanned images, where finer rotation steps would prove useful)
  12. Is there a way to set a default for column guide or grid settings? I often find my self working on a document and just needing a quick grid to line things up, so I use the keyboard shortcut and nothing shows up, then I need to go open the window and pick a preset for anything to show up. (I think Photoshop would always have the previous grid remembered.) (I'm using Affinity Photo 2.1.1 specifically)
  13. I am right handed and was wondering if the dock tools can be permanently moved to the right side of the interface?
  14. Some Affinity Designer v.1.10.5 based Easter Stuff vector assets. - Note: the assets are compound of unlocked, grouped vectors, thus when moving, resizing etc. inside docs, make sure to always select the outer group layer. The assets file: easter-stuff.afassets You will find a bunch of other Affinity related things under some of my other resources contributions, see therefor: Retrospective of resources contributions Have a nice and peaceful Easter time!
  15. Hello, I'm looking for option in Affinity Photo to select some area with light texture and clone stamp it to wide area but I don't want source to be moving when I paint. Is this possible to lock that position somehow or use other tool trick to solve that goal? Maybe option to create brush from that? Greetings.
  16. What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare? Or make silly composite pictures from pure whimsy? I realise in the last couple of weeks I've been doing just that, and so why not share 'em with you folks! I read that Roald Dahl's children's books are being made more 'suitable' for today's children; mention of reading Rudyard Kipling has been changed to Jane Austen. Cue old joke made new: A long time ago on BBC TV, the late Michael Bentine had a sketch with a mad scientist who'd invented the next step up from painting by numbers: spray-on classic paintings. To demonstrate, Hals' Laughing Cavalier and da Vinci's Mona Lisa . . . -- or you can spray them both at the same time to get The Laughing Lisa! Serendipity! In the course of looking for something completely different (pace Mothy Python) I learned that Geiger is German for violinist; Stehgeiger is German for cafe violinist ('standing fiddler); and Geigerteller is German for Geiger counter. So there must e a German word for . . . And finally Esther (British in-joke):
  17. Affinity Photo v2 iPad Version - Beginners Guide to using Drag and Drop and the Place Command The tutorial starts off with a look at the Embedded and Linked Placement Policy, plus using the Resource Manager check and alter the Placement Policy of files. The actual tutorial starts by looking at how to drag and drop single and multiple files from the iPad’s File and Picture Folders, plus from a web page. Then a look at using the Place Command to do the same thing. Lastly a look at using the Place Command while using a Photoshop PSD Mock-Up file. Intro – A Look At The Placement Policy – 0 to 2:56 Drag and Drop from the Photos Folder – 2:57 Drag and Drop from the Files Folder – 5:45 Drag and Drop images from the Internet – 8:16 Using The Place Command – 11:52 Using Place Command with a PSD Mock-up file – 13:53 Serif’s Affinity Help File web page https://affinity.help/ Dropbox PDF iPad version Download Link https://www.dropbox.com/s/yzcm75vonfp619o/iPad%20Version%20-%20Affinity%20Photo%20v2%20-%20Beginners%20Guide%20to%20Affinity%20Photo%20-%20Part%204.pdf?dl=0 Dropbox PC version PDF Download link https://www.dropbox.com/s/ws6dey2yeaxzsrf/Affinity%20Photo%202%20-%20Tutorials%20Vol-010%20-%20Beginners%20Look%20At%20Placing%20Images.pdf?dl=0 Mock-up PSD File from Freepix as used in this tutorial. https://www.freepik.com/free-psd/blank-billboard-mockup_2736937.htm#query=mockup&position=17&from_view=keyword&track=sph
  18. I’m not seeing the folder icon for Affinity Photo showing up? The Folder is there but no graphic as with Designer and Publisher. is there a reason for this?
  19. Hello I would like help! I had a photo subscription activated through the microsoft store, but I had to format the computer and now I can't find the v1 version to install via the microsoft store, I found a download on the official website but I can't activate it, my license is no longer valid same for the V1? Sorry for my English, I'm using google translator! Thank you very much in advance!
  20. Hello Am i missing something or are the WARP tools found in Designer not in Photo? This should be available in both programs and used the same way. Gary
  21. I haven't noticed this problem before, but I may simply have failed to notice it. I found it in Designer and Photo Version 2, but it also occurs also in Version 1. When I copy an Affinity Designer or Photo file with vector objects into another larger image, the stroke widths are changed. This is a nuisance if there's only one vector layer, but it's very frustrating when there are a great many layers: a lot of fiddly work back and forth between the original and the target to restore the stroke thicknesses. I'm running on the up-to-date version of Windows 10 I tested this in Version 1 and found it was reducing strokes as follows: image 1 (source): 800x600 px Grey rectangle 10 pt, red circle 5 pt, small rectangles 5 pt & 0.1 pt image 2 (target): 3,000x3,000 px Grey rectangle 2.4 pt, red circle 1.2 pt, small rectangles 1.2 pt & 0 pt (i.e. < 0.1 -- it's still there) Yesterday's 'live' file in V2 reduced 2.8 pt to 0.7 pt. With the test shapes today, V2 is reducing 2.8 pt to 2.1 pt. The reduction seems to be random, but consistent throughout a session.
  22. I want to enlarge my image that has been worked on in affinity and saved as a tiff at 20cm x 20cm. Can this image be enlarged to 100cm x 100cm without losing any quality? When I view the image larger on screen it looks as if it is now showing the pixels that I do not want. should I have worked on the image at the high res all along, which is difficult due to its size?
  23. Hi, I've searched the support forum and the web but can't seem to find an explanation of how to save an Export Custom Preset. Ideally I'd like to be able to export an image at e.g. 1960px and have a preset for this as at the moment I seem to have to adjust the px value each time. What I would really like is to export so that the longest side is set to in this case 1960. Seem to be able to do it in Apple Photos and other photo software but not looking to edit in Affinity and then use another app to resize. If I adjust the Size to 1960px and save as a preset when I next select the preset it doesn't remember the Size value and reverts to the full image size. thanks
  24. So in Photo and Designer bitmaps scale proportionally if the "shift" key is held down but for vector images it's the exact opposite. A mixed group scales proportionally if the shift key is not held down. Anyway it's weird and makes no sense. Why not choose one and make it consistent (happy for it to be different to PS, but should be consistent in the same app).
