  1. Hi, is it possible to rasterize all content except text in a PDF export so that the text remains selectable in the document but all vector graphics have been converted to raster graphics? Thanks in advance!
  2. I don’t know how difficult it is to make it possible to save PSD files with editable text layers instead of rasterizing them. This is the one feature that keeps me from doing my design work totally on my iPad without Photoshop. I have a client that needs the ability to edit the text before it goes to print because of data that is not available when I’m working on the job (ie product catalog numbers). So my current workflow is I do all of the design layout, drawing, photo editing on my iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil, then export as a PSD, and then add all the text layers in Photoshop on my lapt
  3. Hi, I don't know if this is a bug but Affinity Photo 1.9.1 is doing something I don't expect. When I create a Vector object and set the Blend Antialias to Off, it removes the antialiases. If I export that to PNG, the export does not contain antialiases. However, if I Rasterize the vector, I get antialiases even though they are not displayed. To work around it, I have been exporting vectors as PNG and bringing them back in. But this is a pain in the butt. Is it possible for Rasterize to obey the Antialias setting? Or is there something that I'm missing? Thanks. James PS:
  4. I purchased Affinity Photo for multi-layered pixel art creation, but I'm finding that I cannot use the Merge Layers or Rasterize layer features because they automatically choose a filtering algorithm which causes blurring. How can I fix this? This currently is a deal-breaker for me unfortunately. I've tried the following: Using Nearest rendering in the Performance settings (this causes everything to look as I expect on the canvas while editing the document, but the blurring problem occurs as soon as a multi-layer document is merged, exported/flattened, or a layer
  5. Hey, I want to create a halftone version of an image. Seems only way to do this is by using Live Halftone filter? I am no expert, but I think it is safe to say that the halftone filter is not working as expected. Comments on the images themselves as well. This is a close-up of a detail in the picture, with no pixel view mode selected. Clearly, the white is entirely white - there are no real half toning going on here that is worth conserving in the exported image. Zooming a bit out, the halftone fill for the white remains the same size as in the first image; now a bit more
  6. This is sort of a follow-up to some of my posts (ff.) in the "Can anyone recommend an acrobat pro alternative" thread. I have now made a few apples-to-apples comparison tests on how exactly Affinity (Designer 1.9.1, but it affects all three apps) handles PDF/X-3 and X-4 export when it contains vector objects and text with transparency or transparent gradients. Then I have used exactly the same vector and text objects with exactly the same values in Illustrator CS5 and exported ("saved as", in fact) as PDF/X-3 and X-4 as well. In both cases I was using strictly the default export presets.
  7. Hi, so I have quite a strange issue. I was making a logo for my friends winery. I painted it and then digitalized it so she would get vector to use right. I was just in Designer persona for vectors using brushes from this library. The issue is that when I am in the affinity designer the logo itself looks ready, with transparent background etc. but when I export it to eps, white backgrounds behind the shapes appear. I was doing a little research, ticked all the boxes which was supposed to be ticked nothing helped. Then I tried to put the bad eps file back to Affinity and see what is the pr
  8. Hello there. I'm learning how to design with Affinity Designer, the desktop version. I hit a snag and in need of a bit of guidance on how to rasterize a texture from a photo that then can be edited and used as an overlay to add texture to my designs. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance to solve the case! :) Caryn
  9. Hi, I'm experiencing this issue: I have an image clipped inside a rectangle (mask), and the rectangle also have a stroke set. When exporting, or rasterizing the layer artifacts appear on the image edge, it looks like there is some computation error in the subdivision. To reproduce just open the attached Test.affinity and export in Tiff with default settings. Additional info, the issue happens when the clipping mask stroke is set to be inside, see stroke setting pic. Affinity Photo version 1.7.2 release, issue reproduces both on macOS and iPadOS Test.afdesig
  10. Why, when exporting an Affinity Publisher document to PDF, a specific page is completely rasterized (texts, vector graphics, etc.), and the other pages keep texts as texts and vector graphics as such? I need the texts to be kept as texts and the vector graphics as vector graphics, because if I export to a small PDF, if the text is rasterized in low resolution, it is almost unreadable and it looks ugly. Anyone ever happened something similar?
  11. Would be nice if you could add dpi option to choose specific dpi without chancing document's dpi.
  12. I searched all over and could not find any issues reported similar to this so not sure if Affinity team is aware of it. Essentially when I rasterize a group of layers that are in a folder group (usually these layers were scaled down and there are multiple grouped together) some odd raster effects appear. What is even more odd if I undo the raster operation then right click and raster again it completely fixes the issue. If I undo the operation but use the history panel instead and apply the first raster I did the same issue will appear. I am not sure how redoing the same raster operation
  13. Is it possible to truly disable dithering for gradients? I only found the option in the performance settings, which is however limited to the preview rather than the final result. Meaning as soon as the gradient/s in question are rasterised the dithering is back on, which leads to undesirable results. (Preview) (Rasterized/Exported)
  14. Couldn't find another thread about this, sorry if it's already been addressed. I am using Affinity photo for web design. I exported my file to psd, when I opened it in Photoshop CS6 on a mac, all the text had been rasterized. I have not tried it in Creative Cloud or on a PC. Is this a known "issue", or was that purposeful? I know AP is meant for photographers, but I, and others, would be using it for web design.
  15. Hi Everyone, My Explanation: I'm new to Affinity programs and I'm in the process of preparing all of my PSD files for Affinity Designer & Photo. I've been using Adobe Photoshop for a long time during that time I have created a lot "Smart Objects" within my files. Yesterday, in adobe photoshop, I spent two hours preparing my main device templates and eight hours preparing one single file to be imported and used in Affinity Designer. I went into each smart object individually and pulled the full resolution images, shapes, etc.. and placed them on a separate artboard in the main fil
  16. Hello everyone! I've been trying to edit some PSDs sent by the company designer and I just can't edit anything. Every layer is as "Pixel" - my first thought was that I hadn't the fonts packages, but after installing nothing changed If anyone can help me with this - I couldn't find any answers yet and I don't know if is something related to settings or anything more complex - the same image opens normally in other laptops.
  17. I want to take a page from a PDF and rasterize it for use in a brochure. I used to be able to do this in photoshop. When I open the pdf in Photo or Designer, it loads an editable version, and since I don't have the fonts for this document, it looks really bad.
  18. Hi all, Is there a way to revert a layer that has been converted to mask using Rasterize to Mask into a normal layer? Cheers, Juan
  19. Hey everyone! It would be great if there was an option within the export persona to make, for example, this: Group A (Group) Group 1 (Group) Shape 1 (Vector) Shape 2 (Vector) Group 2 (Group) Shape 3 (Vector) Shape 4 (Vector) Group 3 (Group) Shape 5 (Vector) Shape 6 (Vector) Group 4 (Group) Shape 7 (Vector) Shape 8 (Vector) Group B (Group) Shape 9 (Vector) to that: Group A (Group) Group 1 (Pixels) Group 2 (Pixels) Group 3 (Pixels) Group
  20. Hey everyone! Right now, rastering layers can be a tedious task, which I noticed when I needed to rasterize >100 locked layers, because - only one layer can be rasterized at a time - rasterizing removes layer locks. This behaviour is the same for Designer and Photo on iOS as well as on macOS. It would be useful if multiple selected layers could be rasterized and if the layer lock could be preserved. Best wishes, Shu
  21. I have a layer stack of about 40 individual layers composited to create a sky. The file is getting really slow to work with, so I thought I would duplicate the layer stack, Rasterize it, and turn off the original Layered stack, and get some performance improvements. But AP Rasterizes the group incorrectly. Attached you can see screengrabs showing before and after Rasterizing. I tried rasterizing the individual layers and then the group itselt, but no dice...
  22. Hello, I have When attempting to rasterize the "image" layer, AP (AD probably also but I have not tested) destroys bitmaps and blurs them. This significantly hinders work. Is there any way to avoid this problem? I would like to be able to use the clipboard and not worry about the program spoiling everything when attempting to rasterize layer. maybe you can detect that there is a bitmap in the clipboard and use an algorithm that will keep the data intact? By the way, what is the purpose of pasting bitmaps from the clipboard into the "image" layer. If you want to be able to work normally on it (
  23. I was trying to select a circular part of my image and copy and paste it as a a layer. With help from previous posts, I created a mask and once I rasterized the photo I had pasted, I could then copy the selection and paste as a layer. I just want to know what Rasterize is for? I entered a photo and thought it would be a raster by default, but apparently it is treated as Vector graphics? Thanks in advance as I am new to Affinity today.
  24. After rasterizing an image all the part of the image out of the Artboard has been cut off and the bleed area which has been setup for the document has been ignored - I have no image parts visible out of the Artboard anymore. This of course is not acceptable as I need that part of the image outside of the Arboard to fill the bleed area - that's for the bleed is for. How to solve this? I have special situation where I need image to be rasterized together with some overlay text elements to get the desired output (for some reason what I see is not what I get after print export, so I only get
