  1. I'm starting the trial version of affinity photo. I noticed that the shadows/highlights adjustment resets every time I start a new document, so I created a preset of the adjustment that I wanted to use on several documents. The only problem is that I can't figure out where to find the preset. I expected a drop down menu when I opened up the shadows/highlight adjustment the next time, but the only option was to create a new preset. Then I thought my preset might be listed in the adjustments menu. Nope. Where can I find it? Another great option to help with the problem would be the ability to copy a layer style from the layers panel and then apply it to a different layer. Maybe this is already possible (I hope) and it just doesn't work the way that I am used to doing it. Thanks in advance for your help.
  2. Hi there, is it really as i can see in the "new document" window... There is no user defined preset possible? Not in Affinity Designer or Photo! I can not save a preset for Facebook-Headers or Instagram-Images or whatever ...? And over all, i do not understand how the settings window works. The default is "Type" = Foto. When i change the measures to 1920px*1080px the type selector changes to "Web"??? When i change the Type to "Devices" there is no Broadcast or TV ...? I am really confused about that So, my request is: Please check this dialog box (settings) that it makes really sense for all possibilities :-( Regards Mischugo
  3. I'm sure this is going to be a simple answer that I have just not been able to find for myself but I'm tearing my hair (what little there is left) out over this. How do I create custom document types and page presets that I can pick from the new document dialogue in Designer? I have never picked one of the builtin types, they are just not sizes I ever need to use but there are a couple of dozen other sizes I use a lot that I am forever having to look up the settings for as I switch between them. Blog featured image, facebook cover picture, icon, forum avatar, that sort of thing. I'd like to save them in their own document type, with their own page presets, I just can't find where I can add them.
  4. Hey there community and Affinity devs, some time ago I asked the developers via Facebook if there's an option to keep the adjustment presets like gradient maps, imported and saved LUT files, levels, curves – pretty much everything in the "Adjustment"-palette/tab that you may have generated and saved there over time. Back then (August 2015) you would need to save them separately, because you'd loose them with the next update – at least that's what happened to me twice – after that I was more cautious about those files. Anyway, I got a pretty helpful response: I was told there's a file called adjustments.propcol in the directory /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/ and it would contain all of my adjustments – and it's true! You can save that file and put it back there after each update to preserve your custom presets. Tough I guess it's been solved since a few updated ago because I haven't done it after a couple of times. Last year I purchased the Win-version of Affinity Photo as well and just now I'm starting to wonder: How to transfer adjustment presets from one system (Mac) to another (Win) and is this possible in the first place? So if anyone knows the answer or a workaround that doesn't involve loading everything manually I'd be pretty thankful. Greetings Dennis
  5. One of the great things about Photoshop is its actions. There is a big market in this that is a real challenge for Affinity to crack. Other programs, such as On1 Photo Raw, have very easy to use presets. Affinity seems in its early days with basic macros and single-adjustment presets. However this also means that there is opportunity to overtake Adobe with a more sophisticated 'recipe' system. Things to include: Scalable images of recipes as applied. Nested system so you are not faced with all recipes at once yet can have many on tap without overwhelm as you search for the one you want. Use of tags so you can search as well as browse for recipes. The ability to edit recipes, possibly in a text format. Ability to post a pop-up box at any time, including for choices, sliders and simple text messages. It's possible that a new format is needed for this, beyond presets and macros. [historical note: back in the 80s I implemented a macro system on an HP wordprocessor. Customers loved it. It was also really helpful as an automatic test system!]
  6. I'd like to suggest the curves sub panel under Tones in the Develop Persona have the input / output values displayed for given points. In addition, I'd like this panel to include an 'editor' feature, whereby the option of entering the numerical values for each point on the curve. It would also be appreciated if the x and y axis (0-255) could be delimitated in 10ths like Photoshop. Either replacing quarter tones, or, in addition to the quarter tones. :) Nick
  7. Hi, i'm new to these forums and the Affinity suite, please forgive me if this has been brought up before, a cursory search did not return relevant posts for me. I'm looking for a way to synchronise presets in the develop persona between computers and Affinity Photo and Affinity Photo Beta. There seems to be no UI for this, but perhaps these presets can be synchronised between preference storage, where are the develop presets stored on macOS?
  8. De ingesloten presets worden niet weergegeven.
  9. Hello there, today I bought Affinity for Ipad. I have ipad pro 10.5, I do a lot of HDR merging and post processing. I succesfully imported photos in batch of 3 (coming from Nikon D500 and Sony RX100 Mark IV ), while the import and merge from D500 produced the expected image, the import and merge from RX100 produced a photo with very dark tones, while the original were balanced. My question is, are HDR presets available like in the MAC OSx version ? I could not find any options after the import, and before the import there was no remove ghosts option. Is there any timeline foreseen to implement this features ? thanks
  10. I have my app set to use US English as my default. It's a waste of time to have to switch from A4 / mm to US Letter size / inches every time I make a new document. Doesn't it make sense for the New Document panel to check first what my default language is and then give default options based on THAT instead of assuming I want mm & A4 page sizes? Also, can you add a checkbox for margins (and bleeds when that arrives) that copies the values to all sides of the document? thanks for all you do.
  11. Can you export/import adjustment presets? (as in Adjustment panel, next to Layers panel on the right)
  12. s it possible that I miss the preset filters like Acid Bath, Dramatic, Maximum Grid etc in the 1.6.6 version? I mean the ones in Tone Mapping Persona: Presets -> Default/Extreme/Crazy/James Ritson Customs
  13. I have a weird issue with my Wacom stylus. When using Affinity Photo it works, almost everywhere. Selecting tools, moving image boundaries etc. It also works in the Adjustments / Layers / Effects area. I can select one of the bars - for example 'Exposure' - and then move the Exposure slider left and right. All good. The issue happens when I try and select a Preset for those adjustments. I tap the stylus on the preset thumbnails, and they 'flash' once as if they have been selected. But nothing happens to the image. I thought it was a Wacom / Affinity issue but then I happened to try selecting the Preset thumbnail with my finger rather than the stylus (I have the Wacom touch pad version). My finger is able to select the presets, the thumbnail flashes and the image changes to suit the preset, however, the stylus can not, despite the thumbnail flashing to indicate it has been selected. With both my finger and the stylus the thumbnail flashes to indicate selection, but only my finger actually change the image. Any ideas?
  14. Hello this is my first topic, I will probably buy windows license because I believe it is a great tool for developing raw xtrans-III files, I am using trial version right and I do not find 2 things: 1.- fujifilm color presets 2.- lens correction presets regards
  15. This is just an idea for later versions of Affinity Photo; I was thinking it would be really nice to have Lightroom Presets compatible with later versions of affinity photo. Although they are different applications, they are still similar so maybe Lightroom Presets could become usable in Affinity photo! (Just an idea but would be very useful) Kind regards! Hanan
  16. Hello, I'd like to know if there is any way to add and/or remove page size presets from the list New Document window? I don't use formats such as A0/A1 etc, but very often use B4 and B5 - I'd like to have them on the list so I won't have to enter each time the size manually. \ If currently there's no way to do so, I would recommend to do it in a Scribus way:
  17. Hi, not sure if I have just missed this feature, but there should be a preset for android, that gives you all the 5 folder to export to and the correct sizes (x1 MDPI, x1.5 HDPI, x2 XHDPI, x3 XXHDPI and x4 XXXHDPI). Is there also an option for changing the color on export ? this would be handy for when I export icons that is both black and white.
  18. The presets in Tone Mapping are useful. It would be handy to have such presets other personas. Apart from being useful for saving and standard 'fixes', these would appeal to beginners and help ease them into the overall programme. Other programmes, notably On1, make use of presets everywhere. Yes, I know that with the complexities of layers it would be tricky in Photo persona, and that there are kind of presets available under the Adjustments panel, and also that macros may be used. But I'm sure you good folks might find a way to make this work.
  19. These requests are to improve workflow. I tend to export using the same specs (type, dimensions, quality, etc) and to the same location 80% of the time. It would be nice if I could create either: A custom default of the export dialog and location, OR Be able to create multiple export presets (or scenes or scenarios or whatever you want to call them), OR Have the option to Export same as previous (using most recently used settings) Also, in the Locations dialog, why does it always default to iCloud? And in manage locations, why can't I move one of the other locations above iCloud (which does not appear in the list at all)? I never use iCloud so it is sort of annoying to have to go through the extra layers every time to pick the cloud service that I do use. Finally, I hope that Photo will take advantage of iOS 11's file system for Export (or Save As?). Thanks!
  20. 1. would love to use my arrow keys to toggle quickly through all the luts in my folder. instead of having to click on the lut box i would love to just use my keyboard just as i can in 3dlutcreator. 2. would love to see a lut manager or gallery where i can see rows of thumbnails of the image with different luts already applied. this guy already made one and i think it rocks but would love to see it in affinity photo https://www.colorgradingcentral.com/lut-gallery/ 3.would also love to see false color like this guy has made a plugin for resolve and premiere https://timeinpixels.com/false-color-plugin/ this plugin is amazing and i would love to see it built into affinity photo! 4. would love to be able to import LR presets and quickly go through all the lightroom presets using Affinity pro. 5.would love to be able to use my PS actions with affinity photo! 6. would love to import .mov files and h264 and h265 video files into a timeline with affinity pro just like i can in PS 7. would like to make auto color some kind of lut layer. so what this means is when you click on auto color it creates a lut for that exact auto color profile and that way when you export to LUTs you can also include that auto color layer in the lut creation. of course you could use a hald file but its faster to just click on export to lut and have it work automatically. 8. when i click on the paint brush to paint something it would be nice to see the exact color right beside the other paremeters (width, opacity, flow, hardness, etc. in PS the color is right besides the params and that allows me to work quickly. 9.would like to see support for this plugin: http://software.tiffen.com/products/dfx-products/ofx-pro-plug-in 10. since NIK is free and google will stop using it is there a way you guys can work out a deal with them to continue to support it in your program natively? i think google NIK is awesome!
  21. Hi, the tone mapping presets disappeared from the tone mapping persona. They used to pop up automatically when I selected tone mapping but now I can't find them and I don't know how to turn them back on! Maybe I did something to turn them off involuntarily but I can't figure out what it was. Please help! Thanks!
  22. Hi, the tone mapping presets disappeared from the tone mapping persona.

I must have done something to turn them off involuntarily but I can't figure out what it was. Please help! Thanks!
  23. It would be great if there was the ability to Import and Export custom RAW presets, with .ACR presets not being compatible due to the different systems.
  24. I use Lightroom and have a bunch of presets. I am wondering if I turn to Affinity Photo, can I import the presets that is from Lightroom? Or shall I treat Affinity Photo as an instead of Photoshop, not Lightroom?
  25. I see how to save presets for Curves, but I don't see how or where to apply them. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.
