  1. I just bought Affinity Designer yesterday. First of all, great job! I've been working in vector art for over a decade and I'm impressed with your innovation. The good: Your pen tools are far superior to anything else I have used thus far. Awesome set of shape tools - the most comprehensive so far. The visual controls to alter them save me a lot of time ie. rounded corners on the fly. Nice touch with the transparency tool - this was so frustrating in Adobe Illustrator. The customizable UI is sleek and intuitive The bad: Where is the line smoothing? Every vector illustration software I've ever used had this feature. It is standard workflow to 1)rough in your illustration, 2)smooth, then 3)hand edit the node handles. I found something promising in the node area called 'convert to smooth', but it actually added more nodes. This is the exact opposite of what smoothing should do! Where is the raster to vector trace equivalent? I looked everywhere and I can't figure this out. This is such a common function for artists working between mediums - you're basically excluding them right from he start. For reference check out Adobe Illustrator's powerful image trace palette. Restrain proportions/dimensions when resizing elements is not consistent. Placed images and text will stay proportional by holding down ALT. Everything else stays proportional while holding down shift. Why the inconsistency? I can't seem to figure out how to lock objects without having to go to the layer palette and doing it manually. Thanks for the hard work! I've been in software development for 12 years. I know the sacrifices made and wish you the best of luck.
  2. Hi Suppose I copy and page an image into my affinity photo document. By default it is put on to a new layer of the type "image layer". This is useful because I can shrink the image or stretch it using the move tool and all the original pixels are remembered if I stretch or scale the image again layer later - it is not resampled like Photoshop. My question is, after shrinking the image layer, is it possible to restore it to the original size it was when it was first pasted in to my document? At the moment I can only get it to roughly its original size/aspect ration by guess work. If I make it even slightly bigger than it was originally, it will become pixellated. Thanks.
  3. When I open a photo for which I'd like to resize the dpi in Affinity Photo, I go to Resize Document and I see the default dpi is 72. When I change the dpi to 150, the pixels adjust accordingly. However, when I export that photo, reimport to Affinity Photo, and go back to Resize Document, it shows dpi as 72 again. Why does it not show 150? Any insight would be greatly appreciated as I want to ensure these are best quality for printing. Thanks!
  4. It would be nice if you could show the aspect ratio when using unconstrained resizing. Even nicer would be the ability to snap to common ratios. Thanks for considering this idea!
  5. Good morning, afternoon, evening (pick you fav.)! I'm working a —lot— with constraints. It's an incredible time saver. But not always… :( Lets say you've designed a complex element, using a lot of constraints, groups, subgroups, children, etc. All of this is perfectly working with constraints when you resize the element (wider or higher). But now, you need to change it's size for any of the many reasons that could exist. I really mean you have to —scale— up/down everything: texts, shapes, etc. At this moment, you —don't— want any of the constraints to apply. I've not found yet anything that would allow me to do this. Didn't found a shortcut to temporarily deactivate constraints. Didn't found an button to reset/remove —all— constraints of an element and —all— it's children. --> My only workaround (and I hate it), was to duplicate the element, and manually destroy all the work done (delete all groups, children, clips, set everything to one single level), and then apply a default constraint to all. My work is composed of a —huge— amount of elements, and the time lost to do the above is killing me :( Am I missing something? All the best
  6. Version: 1.5.1 (test) I want to change the DPI configuration of my picture from 72 DPI to 300 DPI: 1. Strg+Alt+I 2. Only change DPI from 72 to 300 DPI, "Einheiten" stays on Pixel 3. Picture size is changed vom 800x600 px to 3333,3x2500px (see DPI_change_after.jpg + DPI_change_Befor.jpg) 4. Changing the DPI with "Einheiten" to for example Centimeter don't changes picture size. If "Einheiten" is "Pixel" the picture is enlarged, which leads to bigger file size. On other settings it is not enlarged. My suggestion is, that changing DPI has only influence on viewing. It is part of meta data.
  7. I probably am doing something wrong... but what? When resizing an document (photo) and saving it as jpg the pixels become hazed, blurred, seemingly unsharp especially when zooming ... i never had that problem with PS or PSE but I always have it with AP
  8. Hi there I just got Affinity Photo after a bad experience with Adobe. I don't use it for Professional photo editing stuff, just the basics, (which is to say I have no idea how to use 90% of the features in this program) and so far I'm having an issue with resizing images. I know you can't resize something to be bigger without distortion, usually. But shrinking? I had to resize an image earlier and the end result was jagged and fuzzy, the quality suffered. I looked in the help files to see which resampling mode to use and was using bilinear. I even tried to crop to a specific constrained size and the end result was still really bad. Is there a trick to this? When I took the same source images into another app and shrank them, they turned out fine. I can upload the images (before / after) if desired.
  9. Hi Affinity Designer Experts, I currently have a little over 100 images that I need to resize. How can I do this in Affinity Designer? TIA :)
  10. Hello I was working on a UI design at 375px X 750px artboard. I used Frame text tool for some texts. I wanted to resize the artboard. So i increased the size using the transform option directly. I increased the size 3 times. Anyways, main point is the Texts didn't increase in size. It increases in size when I use Artisitic tool but not with Frame text. Is there any reason for that? Or was it made that way?
  11. When “Resample” is deselected and you enter your desired DPI, the displayed pixel dimensions change as if you were going to resample. For example, if the image is 200 x 300 at a resolution of 150 dpi, and you enter a resolution of 300 dpi, the pixel dimensions will display as 400 x 600, when they shouldn't change at all. The actual resize operation happens correctly.
  12. Hallo, könnte mir bitte jemand einfach erklären wie ich alle Bilder gleich hoch und breit mache? Ich arbeite derzeit daran eine Fotoplattform zu erstellen und leider sind viele Bilder unterschiedlich groß - was natürlich optisch total unstimmig und unruhig ist. Leider bin ich bei Affinity Photo ein Frischling, weshalb ich euch gerne um Hilfe bitten würde. Mein Ziel ist es alle Bilder gleich "hoch" und gleich "breit" zu machen. Es handelt sich dabei nicht um die Pixelanzahl, denn die Fotos sind diesbezüglich schon alle gleich groß. Danke für eure Hilfe, zur Sicherheit stelle ich einen Anhang rein, bei dem sich schnell erkennen lässt, dass das mittlere Bild unterschiedlich hoch ist. Liebe Grüße und danke für die Hilfe, Heli
  13. I'd like to have an option for not to enlarge photos over 100% in batch job when I specify W or H size. I use batch job for resizing photos for web and I want to resize only for big ones, not enlarge smaller ones to reach W or H size.
  14. I thought I was just being rubbish for ages, but have now finally realised this is an actual bug! 1. Select a brush from the brush panel 2. Paint a stroke or two 3. Observe that the brush is selected with blue highlight in the panel 4. Resize the brush with the square brackets keys 5. Behold! The blue highlight has vanished! 6. Dispair! I think this has been around for a while, coz I was always confused as to which brush I was actually using, but couldn't work out why I didn't know. Thanks Wayne
  15. Is there a way to resize text created with Text Frame Tool using the transform option? I know there is a way to manually resize the text using that outer lever...but I want the text to be specifically a certain size...and when I normally transform, it simply reflows the text.
  16. How do you resize text so it maintains its text location within a text box? It seems that when I resize the text some text jump from its original placement to an extra line and mess up the original layout. Using the transform tool, I am trying to proportionally resize page content...this contains text. It seems that the text size does not change, and messes up the layout. Is there a way to change this?
  17. I am trying to make a button with a fixed height but variable width. Is it possible to lock the height of an element without also locking the width?
  18. or Is there a way to turn Text Frames into Artistic Text. I am trying to quickly resize the frame to the text. Thanks!
  19. When I resize an artboard the guides will move from their original place while the objects stay put, this is really counter intuitive and even inconsistent within Affinity since this behaviour does not happen with canvas. A resized canvas always keeps the guides in the same place. Thanks!
  20. I created a macro in which I press ⌘⌥I, type 2000 in the 2nd box, select Bicubic, and press resize. When I run the macro, the result doesn't preserve aspect ratio, and I suspect it doesn't use Bicubic, either. What can I do to make this work? Bobby
  21. When I resize an artboard the guides will move from their original place while the objects stay put, the guides seem to be hard-anchored to the origin point of the artboard? Thanks!
  22. In AD, when exporting through the Export persona, the replace dialogue is quite small and often causes horizontal scroll. Since the checkboxes are all on the right side (which I find strange since on the Preferences and generally, on the web and other apps, they are on the left) it's hard to be sure if you're activating and deactivating the right files, as some part of the path might be hidden outside the scroll. If this window could be resized and keep the resized size between exports and between documents this would be great.

    Random bug in resize

    When changing dpi from 72 > 300, it seems to work in Affinity Photo, sometimes not. To be certain, I've had to do this resize 72-300 dpi in Pixelmator as a jpg, then import to Affinity Photo as a 300 dpi for export again as a tiff.
  24. Hello-- I've read about half a dozen threads related to this, but none hit on my exact question: I've got a 150x100 canvas (creating a logo, by working two logos together) and am importing one of the logos which is quite large. After dragging it in, I want to size it down significantly (to 150 wide) and to do so using bicubic. I can drag the corners, yes, but it looks terrible once done (I understand the default isn't bicubic). I can change the values of the dimensions in the Transform menu, but again there's no ability to change it to bicubic first. Where does this adjustment live? Thanks a lot, JC
  25. AP 1.5.0.45. After resizing a selection brush using mouse right + ALT + mouse left then drag the brush circle disappears. It then reappears looking normal after using the invisible brush once. While disappeared what I see is a cursor like a "+". This is on a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit computer. I'm assuming the brush circle is supposed to still be visible immediately after resizing and before again using the brush. Note: If I resize the selection brush using the left and right bracket keys the brush circle remains visible through the resizing. Pete
