    Canvas resize bug (Photo)

    I tried to resize my Canvas from 1575x1080 to 1920x1080. I selected the centre anchor point. The resized image is not proportionately resized. There is noticeably more new space on the right than on the left. Check the screenshots. Second bug I find in 5 minutes, in the production edition of AP. This is not good.
  3. First of all thank you for decreasing the automatic docking area for undocked windows (even though I think it's to wide). So working with undocked windows can be tested and experienced now ;-) To be able to work effectively with undocked multiple documents it would be helpful to have an option for the windows to automatically adapt to the current document size. It's a huge hassle to resize the windows manually all the time and than center the document again to have the right position for the document again. This option would be of great help lfor the way I work with documents. Cheers, Timo

    Resize Canvas

    I've been trying to add a white border and a drop shadow off the image. In Photoshop I would create a duplicate of the background - expand the canvas on the background - add a shadow to the duplicate layer. This doesn't work in Affinity. The border is never equal all around or centered, even though I click the 'center' button. How would I go about re-creating this effect in Affinity? Thank you.
  5. My photo has 96 dpi (see screen shot), but when I try to resize it in Affinity, the DPI is set to 1, making it turn out 5.25x7 pixels instead of 5.25x7 inches, unless I type in the DPI by hand. DPI should be read from the file metadata.
  6. Hello Working my way through the *great* book... In the coffee shop poster/card project I played around with various things, including rescaling the finished paper cup. The shadows and gradients scaled correctly but not the bottom corners of the cup. This is because the cup bottom had been designed with the corner tool and there is no option for proportionality. I checked the basic tool video and it seemed to confirms this: the radius will always be x mm... As a result I had to modify the radius by eye on the two layers that constituted the object. Is there a better way? Thanks
  7. 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.
  8. Hello. I have to edit my picture ( actually it's an insttruction) and I am not satisifit that its a 19 000 x 4 7000 pixels on ona page, I need to create simply A4 size multipage document, so move some of the pictures. So my question is how can I add text pages into existing .afphoto document ? Or maybe I should do it in a different way. I can imagine it should works similar to MS.excel where I can adjust my document size, move soma part of it to next page and so on.... Will appreciate Your help
  9. Hello, I have created a few symbols that do not seem to resize as indicated by their constraints. Intended behaviour: In the icon "UML provided interface", the circle should not get stretched/resized, I only want to extend the line. I think my constraints are correct. Am I missing something? I attach my document. System_Context.afdesign
  10. First, thank you for making such a promising design program. As someone who has always found Adobe products to be clunky and cumbersome, I've been waiting for over a decade for a viable alternative to emerge. Unfortunately, when I started my trial of Affinity Designer, I was quickly disappointed to find that its modifier keys for proportional and centric resize are different than the macOS standard keys for those operations. Given how much I use proportional resize, this issue alone is nearly a dealbreaker for me and definitely dampened my enthusiasm to try the other features of Designer. The standard keys for resize in macOS are Shift for proportional and Option for centric. These keys are used in all of Apple's own apps (Keynote, Pages, Preview, etc.) as well as the operating system itself. Try resizing any Mac window from its corner while holding Shift and/or Option, and it will resize proportionally and/or centrically. This clearly shows how fundamental this convention is in the Mac UX. All of the Adobe apps on the Mac also follow this convention, as does Microsoft Excel when resizing charts on a worksheet. In fact, I don't know of any Mac apps that don't follow this convention… except for Affinity Designer. Since UI consistency is a key hallmark of the Mac's ease of use, I hope you will see fit to change the modifiers keys to match the standard, or at least give users the ability to set the modifier keys in Preferences. And since resizing objects is such a fundamental feature of any design program, I hope that this fix will be coming very soon. Note that my feedback is based on Affinity Designer trial version 1.4.3, so I don't know if this was already fixed in 1.5. (When will a trial version of 1.5 become available?)

    Resizing exports

    Apologies if this has already been posted before... When I try to export as a jpeg, there is a resizing option available in the export window. However, when I try to use it, the original size file is exported, ignoring my settings. Of course, there is an easy workaround – just resize before exporting – but why is the option there, if it doesn't work? Or am I misunderstanding something? Thanks!
  12. I have now resized this image in both Affinity and P/S Elements, and Affinity is stretching the image rather than maintaining the aspect ratio. I'm working on an ad for print. An artist sent me a huge 46.294" x 29.486" image. When I try to Document/Resize Document, and change the first dimension to 1.75", the second jumps to 0.652". The lock in engaged. The correct action by P/S Elements is to set that dimension to 1.135". I should mention that I had to crop the image first because the studio was showing in the background. Why is Affinity Photo squashing the image? image_cropped.afphoto
  13. (On Windows Beta) Hi, Is it possible to scale a curve without the containing image? For example: I've a rectangle with an image as sub-layer. So I use the rectangle as cropping. (Because I needed to rotate the image). If I scale the rectangle, the image is scaled with it. Is there a way to prevent this (like cropping does)? Thanks, Andreas Furster
  14. Can anyone explain the following and advise how I can prevent this happening please. The following happens in both Affinity Photo and Designer. I create a new landscape file 40 cm by 27.7 cm at 300 dpi as a template. Then before doing any work on it I export as a psd file. When I reopen that file in either AF or AD it has resized to 47.24 cm by 32.71 cm at 300 dpi. I have tried the same procedure twice in both programmes with the same results. Advice please.
  15. So I tried resizing. I have a photo scanned from a slide at 4000 dpi. I go to resize document. It says 16x20cm print size at 300dpi. I accept. Then I export to TIFF. The TIFF is still 4000 dpi. What is going on? Best regards Geir Rosset Oslo Norway
  16. In my AD map docs there are many ellipses in one layer/group to show site locations. They are 40x20 pts in size with a stroke of 6 pts. I would like to resize them all 85% to 34x17 pts, and if possible reduce the stroke by 85% at the same time. In Illustrator I did this by "Transform Each" since transforming the entire group/layer would also reduce the width and height of the entire group and thus reposition of each ellipse. AD also treats the layer/group as unit, reflected in the width and height in Transform. Does AD have such a feature as Illustrator "Transform Each?"
  17. Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but a problem I frequently run into in Affinity Designer is the following: I have an object (such as a rectangle), I make other objects children of this object so they will mask to its bounds, then I find I need to resize the bounds of the parent object. I realize that the intended behavior for resizing a parent element is to resize all of the children elements as if it were any other group. However, I was wondering if there is any method/modifier keys that might let me resize the parent object without modifying the children, just to adjust the bounds. Hopefully this question makes sense... if it isn't possible (which I would not be surprised if it isn't, as it's a rather strange request), is there another easy technique of masking I could use? My usual method is to create parent objects as masks, then just place the objects I wish to mask as children. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
  18. Hi Folks and a very Merry Xmas to you all, I'm after some help again for a change. I have a project I have been working on and I now need to submit it to a specific website. Here is the issue... The project was created with the original document being set up as A4 size (Not sure why I picked this size but I did), I have now found out that my design needs to be submitted firstly in .jpeg format but also I am restricted to submitted it in the following dimensions... Width - 900px Height - 500px. I have tried simply set up a new project with those dimensions and then just drag my project into it and select my whole design and re-size it using the hold down shift and grab the top corner method but this totally throws my design out. The text won't re-size and some of the brushstrokes are still way to big. Is there are easier way? I am not familiar at all with the export persona but was wondering if there was a way I could use that? Any ideas folks? Mark
  19. As the title suggests, I find the resizing modifier keys inconsistent in both applications. Example: Open Designer Choose a primitive shape and hold down the shift key as you place it on the canvas so it has an aspect ratio of 1:1 Now grab one of the corner handles and shift-drag to resize your object and it retains that aspect. Select Layer -> Rasterize Grab a corner handle of the object and shift-resize it Undo because that's not what you expect to happen Re-grab the corner handle and hold down option instead and it retains aspect ratio. Now grab a side handle and try the same thing. Option has no effect, shift retains aspect ratio. Is this an error? Or is there some internal logic that I'm not appreciating? Or is there some obscure setting that means this is only affecting me?
  20. From time to time I need to resize images to fit them to website and social network page covers. I mostly work with photos with a main subject and patterns or landscape panorama I want to extend to the left or to the right to fill horizontal space. I've seen a Gimp plugin on Ubuntu Linux called "Liquid rescale" that does exactly this: http://liquidrescale.wikidot.com/en:examples (first example in that page fits my needs) Is there a way to do something similar in Affinity Photo also? I know I can install Gimp on my Mac, but for convenience and speed I'd like to keep as much as possible my workflow in Affinity Photo. Thanks in advance, gerlos
  21. I figured I would ask here to make sure someone else can search to find an updated answer. I don't care to see the brush pattern, most of my brushes I just click as a stamp. I have about 300 bruise. Any way to see them like PS and also change between Small and Large. thanks
  22. Hi, I have a problem while resizing images in Affinity Photo. Probably I am just doing something wrong because I was used to use Adobe Photoshop and Affinity works a little bit differently in some ways. My problem is that when I import some picture into my workspace (by copy-paste) and I'm trying to resize this image it always loose it's quality and has wavy edges. When I export it to jpg or png it seems ok but in Affinity it looks bad (see the screenshot). It is very complicated for me to work with images in bad quality - is it some kind of setting or is it a mistake in program? Is there any way how to turn it off? Thanks for the advise.
  23. Hi, Not sure how to write the title of this question, probably because I'm missing some english knowledge… I'll try to quickly explain: • Create a rectangle shape • Create a star shape (or whatever you prefer) • Place the star into the rectangle • If you move the star around, the rectangle act as a clip and will hide parts of the star What if I want to resize/move my rectangle —without— resizing or moving my star? I've not be able to find a solution yet, except by moving out my star, resizing/moving my rectangle, and putting back the star again, which obviously makes the process not user friendly and inefficient. Thanks for your help.
  24. Preparing a photograph for printing, I cropped it to 125mm 1:1 @ 400 dpi, then tried to add borders to it using the Resize Canvas command. The previously established crop is cancelled, the document is resized, but not correctly. This happens consistently, which means I can't finish this job using Affinity Photo... The attached screen shots are perhaps NSFW, but that's what I was working on.
  25. The issue is simple, the solution IMHO even simpler (it should just work) 1. Create a new DOC in AD with the highest possible settings - Either a QFHD Web Doc with 74 DPI or a Custom DOC with 400 DPI 2. Draw a Circle with 1000px * 1000PX 3. Switch to Pixel View (to see how it will look once exported as a PNG) 4. Zoom up and see the border of the Circle as in my screenshot "Bad" 5. Switch off Pixel View and see the border of the Circle as in my Screenshot "Good" I want to be able to create a simple thing in AD, and export it as seen in "Good" Instead, if I export as PNG, I get "Bad" I also want to be able to create this as a 1000*1000 Circle, and freely resize smaller with the h/w settings, export. Instead results are worse. I am used to AI and there you just do this without even thinking of bad results. Please elaborate how you can export a object created with AD, to a PNG, without having borders/details/etc pixeled instead of a "neat line" That is simply a must. I understand that AD is way cheaper then AI but if a simple thing like the above is not possible with AD, I do not see the sense in buying a license. Thank you
