  1. Any ideas on why this tool (these tools) won't work? I've mostly ruled out User Error. Using version 1.5.43 (beta). Machine is Windows 7. For what it's worth, these features did work in earlier versions. example.wmv
  2. A feature in animation software Hype is bundled with it's iOS software that sends live previews of your animation and timeline scrub straight to your iOS device. Such a feature could be useful particularly when creating UI for iOS devices. I'm hoping someone comes in here and tells me it already exists. :lol:
  3. I love the obviousness of the snapping candidates when I'm working, but they make it hard to tell what my design will actually look like, especially with thin strokes. Could we either: have a hotkey that toggles snapping on and off (yes, it's in the toolbar, but that doesn't allow for quick checks via muscle memory)? have a hotkey to a "preview mode" wherein all guides, grids, snapping candidates, etc are hidden?
  4. Somebody has some advice for this problem? Every time I zoom, click anywhere, even looking at the monitor the wrong way the image flicker and seems to reconstruct the preview, it's very annoying, and the contrary of what I see in affinity's video tutorial where appear to be smooth as heck
  5. Hello, It would be really nice to be able to see a live preview when selecting a sampled colour in Pixel Persona as an overlay or black and white mask. Currently it shows an approximate result while dragging a slider ( dashed lines ). Extracting clour range ( sampled colour ) and using it as a layer mask or fx layer is a common practice in compositing. Architectural visualizations for example. I can select a sampled colour and click Refine to check if what i did was ok, but it is always a guess. Designer is a GREAT program, but I really miss this feature. I am testing Affinity Photo Beta for Windows and I can't see this kind of tool as well. ( Pixelmator has it BTW ;D ). I know it is a beta so maybe it is a good time to point it out. Performance-wise, maybe taking a screenshot and previewing selection mask on a low-res image is a good idea? Best Regards, Marcin Mirkowicz.
  6. One feature I use extensively with InDesign is the overall graphic preview while resizing an image frame which is very useful for knowing on the fly how much to shrink or expand the frame or to get an idea of how much clipping is on the image without having to resize everything out. It works by holding down the handles a second longer to activate that mode. Has something like this already been considered for Publisher? If not, I'd like to at least put it out there as a possible feature that I know many would love.
  7. I personally find the previews in this palette very obtrusive. I for one never use them and I suspect that goes for many other users as well. This palette contains a lot of items and once a few of these previews are open it takes up a lot of space and starts to need a lot of scrolling to find what you want. Part of the problem is that when you close an adjustment using the buttons supplied in its dialogue the preview in the palette doesn’t close. To close this you must go back to the palette and close the dialogue from there. If you leave previews open then next time you want to create a similar layer you must click twice in the palette, once to close the previews and then again to re-open them along with the dialogue. Perhaps I am unduly fussy but I find all this a little clumsy and unneeded. Could we have an option to turn presets on and off in this palette? I really think a lot of users, particularly expert users who don’t need them, might welcome this.
  8. When a file is exported to EPS, it does not enclose a tiff/jpg preview. Older versions of QuarkXPress requires this. This is the only reason why I still have to keep Illustrator around. Since this is part of the EPS format specs, I posted it as a bug and not a feature request.
  9. I just started using Affinity Photo and noticed that files produced in Affinity (.afphoto) just show the Affinity icon when viewed in Adobe Bridge. I am able to see thumbs/previews in the Finder on my Mac, just not within Bridge. I am currently using Adobe Bridge CS5.1, so perhaps someone can let me know if this is possible in later versions of Bridge or if there is a way to add the ability to generate previews for Affinity files in Bridge.
  10. Hello, it would be very nice to be able to see the preview and the estimated size in kb while exporting in jpg and png (and maybe an export with TinyPNG would be awesome ) thank you
  11. My TIFF files made with Affinity Photo are not displayed in Apple programs including Photos, Finder and Preview. This seems to happen to files made after a certain date some time this year. The Apple tech I talked to said there seemed to be a fix by Affinity Photo. I cannot find it. How do I get this issue fixed? Thanks.
  12. Hey guys, I just noticed a strange behavior when using the denoise filter (found in Filters → Noise → Denoise) In my case, I was working with an image which has dimensions of 3264x2448: When using the Denoiser and dialing in quite extreme values for the luminance parameter, the in-app-preview shows me the desired effect, but as soon as I hit "apply", Affinity Photo takes time to render the effect, and after calculating, the result is very different to what the preview showed me. In all of the experienced cases, the final effect is much weaker than the preview showed me. If you have problems to reproduce this behavior, please let me know. I can then provide the image and the steps that make the problem clearly visible. Best regards, Rorando
  13. Hello; I'm coming from Illustrator; first time using the app. Where is overprint preview, or what is the Affinity equivalent? thanks!
  14. Hello everybody, I've bought Affinity designer to set up Artboards for webdesign. Right now I am working on an administrator dashboard for a SAAS application. I have a few artboards. To name a few: - Favicon artboard - Logo artboard - Background image artboard - Dashboard homepage design artboard. It would be nice if we could use artboards in other artboards, like a portal. Right now I am editting my logo in the logo artboard and then copy the logo over to the dashboard artboard. It would be nice if I could put a reference to the logo artboard in the dashboard artboard, so that changes made to the logo artboard would instantly appear in the dashboard artboard. Best regards.
  15. Hello. I love Affinity Photo. I was happy to move from Adobe PhotoShop to Affinity Photo when I first discovered it. That said, there are a number of features that were very useful to me in Adobe PhotoShop that appear to be missing from AP. If some of the following features are in fact missing, is somebody able to tell me when/if they will be included? Full-screen preview shortcut Preview the whole document in full-screen without the borders of the UI with a shortcut command. Just the one shortcut command - not a series of shortcuts. Also, I don't wish to use the 'toggle full screen' option as the transition needs to be instantaneous. Compare to the original photo (prior to modification) shortcut Sometimes it is very useful to see how far you've come - to check how the original looked, with one shortcut. On/off preview button when making adjustments/adding filters Currently, mirror view and split view exist as ways to compare the modification to the original. But why not a simple on/off button? I would prefer that to the existing options. Export image preview quality During the export stage as you are deciding how to compress your image, it would be beneficial to have a preview showing what the image will look like under those compression settings. It would better allow to manage how to export an image in reduced file size but maintain good quality. Edit image EXIF data When uploading an image to the Internet, I want to first be able to strip private information such as GPS coordinates. Apart from what, I would to append additional information to an image in the EXIF information. Merge colour tones from another image. I remember PhotoShop had a feature that allowed you to adjust the colour of an image based upon the palette of another image. This was very useful if you had one image where the colours were all wrong in a collection where the colours were fine. So you could tell the editor to take the yellow from the better image and tell the worse photo "that's what yellow is meant to look like", and it would correct the whole photo based upon that adjustment. Merge exposure from another image Same principal as above. You tell the editor that you want the exposure levels of one image to translate to another image.
  16. I really like “Continuous export” feature and today I have another reason to love it. I’ve installed Skala preview on my Mac and Skala View on iOS. Then, in Export persona, I’ve created a slice from a layer enabling the continuous export. Dragging on Skala preview the exported file, I get a precise live view of my changes in Affinity Designer (or Photo) :)
  17. As nice as things like live preview of layer blend modes are (and they are!) I can't help feeling a bit short changed by the layer transparency slider....? Anyone else feel like this? I'd really like a live preview of the layer's transparency as I drag the slider, but I have to let go and test it each time. I would say something like 'oh, I understand, it must be difficult to do...etc', but actually, can it really be that hard to make the transparency live? Or at least catch up, if you hold at a point, could it at least catch up to that point when it can manage it? While we're here, I find hue changes similarly frustrating - they do catch up, but I do think it feels a bit slow....anyone else?] Cheers Wayne
  18. Hi, When trying to print an image and scaling it by a percentage the print preview box does not update the preview to show the new scale and how its fitting on the paper size. If I hit enter while still in the percentage dialogue box to try and update preview it automatically sends to printer instead of updating preview image. Frustrated as I now still have to go in to photoshop to print, the program i'm trying to move away from, defeating the purpose of using Affinity. Help would be appreciated. Thanks
  19. Hi, I am a new affinity user. Having come over from Adobe CC I would preview my images in LR before importing to PS for editing. What are the raw image preview options you recommend? I like affinity once I have the correct image selected to import, but it's finding the right image and evaluating/comparing them before import that's now the issue. Thanks, Bec
  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.
  21. See the image attached. I think it would be awesome if there was a color preview to show how dragging the curves handles will affect your photo. For example I would know that dragging the highs in the red channel down would tint the photo cyan, or dragging the lows in green to the right will tint the photo magenta. This could work for RGB and CMYK as well. Thanks!
  22. Yes, I've noted the following line in the Feature Roadmap for Affinity Photo: -Export persona - preview with compression and palette optimisation But since we don't know exactly what you are working on, I'd like to offer some guidance: 1) Please use Photoshop's "Save for Web" as a feature guide. I use just about every single feature there when optimizing graphics for the web. Transparency, Number of Colors, Interlaced, Various Dithers, Multiple Color palettes (Adaptive, Selective, Perceptual), Web Snap, and Lossy (for GIF) are all very serious features. ​2) Please use a Quantizer for PNG optimization: http://pngnq.sourceforge.net I use TinyPNG all the time to convert my 24-bit PNGs with Transparency into super tiny PNG-8's! https://tinypng.com Build something like that into Affinity Photo and you've truly one-upped Photoshop! 3) Consider hiding or graying-out the "Resample" popup in the File>Export sheet whenever the dimensions are LOCKED. When UNLOCKED and the user changes the dimensions, only they would you need to resample. But when the dimensions are locked, no resampling is needed and so that resample popup only serves to confuse the user. 4) If you want to add a compression preview in File>Export it may be best to put that as a checkbox option, unchecked by default to ensure maximum performance. Thanks.
  23. Hello, I just installed AD 1.3.2 and noticed there are no longer file previews in the finder (OSX 10.8.5). Thanks Paige
  24. To reproduce: Draw with the brush tool or otherwise generate a raster layer with some content Using the move tool or the transform panel, add a rotate transform to the layer Run a destructive filter command from the main menu (tested with Radial Blur) Increase the Angle parameter for the filter to have a visible effect With the preview active, click somewhere on the canvas to set the center point for the effect to something meaningful, like the center BUG: The filter preview will now be clipped rectangularly (presumably to a memory manager tile boundary) and not display in the extended area the filter would expand the layer region into. Applying the filter will now briefly show a huge bounding box for the layer, which after a short moment shrinks to the correct size The final rendered result is correct even though the preview was not.
  25. This is most likely a system glitch rather than something in Affinity but I'm hoping someone will have an idea how to correct it. Suddenly yesterday, while moving a folder of saved Affinity images, every file with an .afdesign or .afphoto suffix lost the preview on their thumbnails. Just went blank! These were files that 15 minutes earlier had normal preview thumbnails. I was not in either Designer or Photo at the time. I was just organizing folders. The reason I think it's system-related is that I also found a folder of NEF files that has lost their previews as well. A thing that makes me think it might not be system-related is that when I did a Get Info on those files, they were set to Open With…Affinity Photo. With the NEF files (a year's worth!) I was able to use a batch process in Capture NX2 to resave those files. Resaving restored their previews. Resaving did not restore any of the Affinity files. And new files, in both programs, no longer save with preview icons. At the moment, if I want to have a preview thumbnail, I have to export the file as either a PNG or a PSD. Any and all suggestions welcome! I am stumped. Update: Per suggestion in another thread, I deleted both the Designer and Photo betas and reinstalled them (after downloading them again in case there was a glitch in the download.) Opened a folder of Designer files and some of them had previews showing, others did not. Closed that folder and opened the Photo files folder, no previews at all. Went back to the Designer folder and all of those previews were now blank again.
