  1. Here's a afthumbs.py Python3 script which can be used to extract PNG thumbnail images out of Affinity files. The afthumbs.py script can be called either by passing over a Affinity file as argument directly ... ... or in an interacting mode just like this ... If the script does find a PNG thumb image it will extract it and write it into a pngs/ directory! Here's the afthumbs.py Python3 script for download: afthumbs.py Have fun!
  2. I have been trying to convert this PDF to a PNG or JPEG to include in a Wordpress blog post and it keeps looking blurry upon upload. You can see that when I download these, they look normal, but as soon as I put it on a Wordpress post, it gets all blurry, like this: My plan was to put a shadow behind the JPEG or PNG to make it look like a digital download product but I can't get it to look right on a Wordpress post even without a shadow?? I don't know what to do anymore Any help here would be amazing. Random List - PDF Flattened.pdf Random List - PDF High Quality.pdf
  3. I am having some issues exporting PNGs from the SVGs in this pack from kenney.nl: http://kenney.nl/content/4-assets/41-platformer-art-deluxe/platformer-art-complete-pack-0.zip The SVG file in that pack is in the following location "Base pack/Vector/tiles.svg" An example of a properly exported PNG without weird gaps is here: "Base pack/Tiles/grassCenter.png" Please find the result when I export that part of the SVG attached, it has either white gaps or transparent gaps (this depends on the section of the SVG I try and export). I understand that there isn't any overlapping of the SVG paths and believe this might be the issue. Suggestions on how to workaround this issue would be much appreciated.
  4. Hello. I'm attempting to upload art made in Affinity Designer to Teespring. I export as a PNG, Resample: Bilinear and don't resize the image larger when creating my listing. After creating the listing, the preview looks pixelated. Other shops don't have this pixelation problem on their product pages. I'm concerned about the quality of the shirt. Their design tips say to turn off anti-aliasing in Illustrator. Can I achieve a similar result in Designer to prevent pixilation of a printed product? I see an export option for nearest neighbor but I don't fully understand this or if it will allow my design to be printed with high quality. The artwork are vectors and they are only pixelated when uploaded to the shop. What would you suggest?
  5. Using Affinity Photo in Windows 10 and I am having recurring issues with the export. Horizontal white lines / dashes are appearing on the export files. How many there are and where they appear seems to be random (see screenshot). It occurs on whatever file type I use - PNG, JPEG or TIFF (not PDF, but PDF files are not much use to me!). I have varied the export quality and the same problem continues. The lines appear regardless of what software I use to view the files on (Affinity, Photo, Windows photo viewer), although in some they become black lines instead of white. The original Affinity file is fine. I have varied using the files on an external hard drive and on my laptop (I also deleted a lot of files to create space on my laptop, in case that was the issue). I have uninstalled and reinstalled Affinity Photo. The problem has only begun within the last week or so, which coincides with later Affinity Photo versions. Nothing else in the help pages, so just me?! I don't have an alternative laptop / PC to try with at the moment. Any suggestions? Thanks, Mark
  6. dear affinity management, i tried the affinity photo for 90 days.. it is a very good product.. kinda 9 on 10... id love to purchase it BUT.. everytime one makes changes on to a raw photo, adobe photoshop saves the changes into an xmp file ( simple <40kb notepad file ). this is not the case with affinity when dealing with raw files. we have to re-edit the raw pics again and again and again!!!!! if i hit "develop" and save-its massive 150 mb plus file size against xmp which is <50kb AND when i export the pic in .png we dont get the slider(quality and file size) like in jpeg... the png files are huge and have to use another software to reduce its size.. PLEASE do something about it.. the .xmp feature is the reason keeping most newbie photographers like me to not buy your superb product! Even free softwares like darktable does this somehow.. why not in AFFINITY PHOTO??? i see many people have been requesting it for quite sometime now.. atleast give an announcement regarding any update on it.. if its gonna be implemented or not in the upcoming version... on the whole, AFFINITY PHOTO is an awesome software.. no doubt about it! In a nutshell, the request to mgmt and devs is "xmp sidecar feature" to save the changes made onto a raw photo like Adobe PS does or darktable does asap and improve .png export (add file size/quality slider as in jpeg export) Appreciate the AFFINITY TEAM in making this product! Thanks you..
  7. There's been a few threads on these forums about JXL but no real feedback from Serif on their plans other than an answer that it might happen some day. I really do think Serif should consider JXL seriously and be a first mover in regards to this format. The reasons for supporting JPEG XL is many, a new actually great format for >8bit final export, possibility of lossless quality, transparent conversion to JPEG for compatibility, better compression and more. Some sources: source 1, source 2. The reason I think Serif should be a first mover in regards to this format is that no new format will ever get the chance at dethroning JPEG from it's role if nobody ever implements it in their software. Browsers do support JPEG XL (JXL) but the enablement is hidden behind browser flags currently, partly because nothing else supports JPEG XL at this time.
  8. Working with Web design i often need to eport several different png graphics ... i would like to know if there is a way to click/select an object to create atutomatically artboards or slices in the precise dimenson of the object/group, so when i export a PNG file the image does not leaves a gap or borders. Is there a way to do this?
  9. Hi everyone, I am facing some issues exporting .pdfs in Word documents, where images (.svg exported from AD) look pixilated in the pdf document. I check the svg by opening in Inkscape and PowerPoint, and the svg looks ok (not pixilated and with layers). So, I am guessing that there is a problem during the export of the pdf by Word. I know this is not the place to solve this issue, but it is just to give you the context. So, after some troubleshooting I found out that like when background layer is locked the svg exported from affinity is pixilated, which was easy to solve. However, this lead me to think that maybe there are rules or better practices to prepare documents that would reduce the problems (rasterized element within the svg). Since I am in a hurry, I just rasterize elements where I used transparencies and blend modes, and (so, I used the new "pixel" layer, and turn off the group), but in here I found out that naturally different dpi gave different results. What is the recommended dpi to use to rasterize when you want to print (A4)? I tried 300 dpi and it was bad, so I used 3000 dpi to rasterize (because it was when I notice that the original image was not pixilated), then changed back to 300 dpi before export. Is there a better way to work that avoids this possible bad practice? Is there a rule for the grouping of the elements in the file to guarantee a good export? For example, is it ok if a .tiff file is within a group that also contains art text? or should this elements be ungrouped instead? When you have a picture that you need to apply a black&white adjustment, how do you do to export the svg properly? what settings to used? I used artboards to make the figures, and applied during the export the preset svg (for export), and a custom svg export with the option not to rasterize anything. Hope it is not confusing. Thank you in advance o/
  10. Hi. I created manually a huge collection of simulated pixel art. There is a bunch of more than 8 thousand individual pieces that Affinity couldn't manage in one fils, so I have spliced them in files that contains between 400 to less than 600 artboards, each containing one piece. Despite the files are hardly managed by my old laptop, I tried for first time the persona export because up to date I never had to make so massive amount of files. So each artboard, a perfect square of 1008 by 1008 pixels containing colored rectangle shapes of 24px side, perfectly aligned by Affinity snap fitting perfectly inside the square as a different image. I will not upload full size screenshots, but the issue will be clear. Designer persona shows squares like separated in preview. in outline view they are shown with no space at all between, no matters the magnification. Export directly one by one from designer results in a perfect 1008px square, with no separation between the colored squares, but export persona DOES! it export each artboard in 1009px and with a clear separation of 1 px between squares!!! so is totally unusable to export my more than 8 thousands figures!!!! that is not only frustrating, is very imprecise. Note I "adjusted" one to 1008px to test, but the result is very bad too, so I need your help, pleas as soon as possible.
  11. Hi, when exporting an artboard to PNG I get an image with an unwanted white border all around. The margins are 0 in the document setup but I didn't find a way to get rid of that border. Thanks for any help
  12. When I export a document as a PDF, the PNG with transparent background has a slight different color than the rest of the total background when printing. When I look at the PDF on my desktop it all looks fine (see attached image 1) but as soon as I print it, you can see that the transparent part of the PNG has an other color than the layer below (see attached image 2). Does anyone know how I can fix this issue?
  13. In the Export Persona, when exporting an image for the web and you want the size as small as possible, you want to see a preview of what you will be exporting. So you can change the quality of a jpeg and see instantly what the result will be. The same when you change the number of colors in the palette of gifs and pngs. Also show the sizes in bytes of the slices you are exporting. The size is shown in the simple Export, but not in the more advanced Export Persona. Fireworks does this very well, it even has multiple previews with different export settings.
  14. I have a .afphoto file comprising a map of numbered plotland compartments as the bottom layer. For some of these compartments I have added larger numbers so that they can be readily found when refered to in the text. These have been merged into a pixel layer with a transparent background and comprise the top layer. The middle layer comprises a white background for each number that is slightly larger than the number so that it stands out against the bottom layer. I have then merged the three layers using Layer > Merge Visible and set the three lower layers to be invisible. If I export the .afphoto file as a .tiff, it is fine. However if I export as a .png, it only includes the numbers layer, no base map or white background. Here is the .afphoto file: Plotlands Map 300 196mm Numbers 3 layers.afphoto Here is the exported .png file: The only layer visible at the export stage is the merged layer. Here is the Layers Panel: Can anyone advise on this? I would prefer to export as .png, although I can manage with .tiff for now. John
  15. Hello all, I've been having a bit of a problem exporting and managing colours recently whilst some vector work. It's not something that I have encountered before, but after alot of searching, I cannot find a solution that fixes my particular problem. The rendered colour is not representative of the colour that is chosen in the colour picker. Above is a screenshot of an example. using the tool 'Sip' I can see that the colour is being rendered differently to that which I picked. Below is a screenshot of the same scenario but this time in Sketch and notice that I do not have the same problem. My document and export color profiles are set to sRGB as this is the default for web browsers. Any help on the above will be greatly appreciated.
  16. Hi, A hiccup in trying to use Affinity Photo in my pdf-to-EPUB processing workflow, in which all my text is being exported from my layout app as transparent background pdfs, to be converted in AP to png and resized. Every text box that has a feathered edge, is getting a hard outline at the outermost extent of the feather - ie where the feather is transparent. This same effect doesn't appear to occur in Photoshop. It occurs in AP with either a batch processor, or opening a single file. Attached is a comparison of the same file opened in both Photoshop and AP, with the same dpi and size settings for rendering. (the photoshop file has a layer of white added behind, to show up the lack of artefact. A white feathered box gets a white bounding outline. Any thoughts? (edit - genuine textbox from the book, not a statement towards the any reader of this ) thanks.
  17. Hello Affinity members, I am creating assets for a game in Affinity Designer 1.7.3.481. For that I am using isometric 2:1 grid. In the editor everything looks fine. But after I export it, the resulting PNG has a strange outline or shadow around it. Please see picture attached. This is a 512x256 PNG, the outline is there no matter the export resolution. How do I get rid of this? It looks awful in the game. EDIT: I downloaded latest Affinity Designer version and the problem persists.
  18. Affinity photo constantly crushing while working on png blender files. When i sellect parts of the picture by lasso tool and use HSL especially. It appears in the way that after I sellect things and do manipulations with the colours it suddenly stack, i do can click options - my mouse works, but can't really choose them nor come back, I cannot save the file in cuurent stage as well nor recover it later, it is really frustrating. Also I have noticed a lot of problems with rendering my raw files from SA73, when I adding some layers, adjustments - more advanced works especially with sharpening parts of the photo, in the software itself picture looks fine, but when exporting to jpg there is a lot of gliches, some strange colour full squars appears everywere. When i repeat rendering into jpg, the gliches appears again but in different parts of the picture.
  19. Hello, I have a logo created in AI which I can open in Designer. I can also scale it up and down. I want to be able to save it as png with transparent background to be used on a website. Can’t seem to be able to do that. I go to File > Export & select PNG but transparent background is not an option. So basically I want to take a vector image and save it as a raster image with transparent background. Any help would be appreciated. Thx!
  20. Hello, 1mm is being added when I export to png. Is this is a bug or is there something I am doing wrong? Dimensions are meant to be 260mm x 300mm but are actually 260mm x 301mm. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. I've been using AD for about a week now and I must say I love. I have a couple of tools and personalization options I still miss from Illustrator and I'm hoping to see them in Affinity soon. One of these is the option to choose the background color of a PNG file upon exporting. Setting a background in any color is fast and easy while creating the content, but exporting an image with a transparent background is impossible. Or at least I haven't found the way to do it.
  22. When exporting PNGs of character assets I noticed that many of them have an ugly "halo" of bright pixels. In the example image I have the shape of the torso, within that shape I have pasted another shape for the shadow, which has it's layer mode set to multiply. It looks completely clean inside the Affinity editor, but ends up with the halo on export. I have tried different export settings, and formats, but all have the same result. A fix, or workaround would be much appreciated.
  23. Hello! Hope someone can help as I have tried so many different options and I'm losing the will to live - I'm at the point of resorting to MS Word! I've had a look at other posts on similar issues but haven't found a solution that works for me. I've just started working on a magazine for Work, when I export as a PDF our logo (.png file) on the cover has a messy grey outline around it - I've tired all sorts of PDF export options for resolution, compression, turning include layers off etc. and it makes no difference. I've just switched to Affinity Designer persona (whilst in Affinity Publisher) and exported the same document to PDF and the logo displays fine with no outline... This isn't the first time I've had this problem, when I was working on our Annual Impact Report I managed to export it once with the logo displaying fine. Unfortunately I needed to make changes to it whilst at the Office and not on my home PC and couldn't remember the exporting settings I'd used originally - I have yet to get this document to export to PDF without the outline, no matter what I do. Not even switching to the Affinity Designer persona helps. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? Happy to upload the file if that helps. Best wishes Claire
  24. Hi there, I was trying to batch process my blender rendered .exr files to png and even though the exr files are saved in RGBA, I cannot get them into png format with a transparent background. Regardless what I do, the backgorund is alsways black as one or more of the render layers in the exr shows a black background. I would only want the top view (RGBA) layer with the transparent background. How can I do that? Thanks so much for your help! Best, Hidari
  25. When exporting (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S) PNG from Affinity Photo , there are options to export the area as 1: whole document, 2:Selection with background 3:Selection without background. I make video game art and export selections of layers frequently as i work on them. So I'm glad i can export a selection of layers as PNG without a background, but i have to manually set the area to "selection without background" each time. Does anyone know if there is a way to change the default area of export PNG from "whole document" to one of the other options? Thanks inf advance!
