  1. Today I learned that pasting elements between Designer documents with different resolution results on different object size. This is a normal behavior on bitmap software, like Photo or Photoshop, because they work with pure pixels and must adapt to the number of pixels the pasted image has upon the resolution, but is a complete hassle on vector apps like Designer, where the key is that you usually design on physical objet size, independently of resolution. This is specially hard when you are working with exact measures, like packaging or any technical illustration. I suggest three possible solutions A: Document or application setting to allow users to select their preference on copy pasting. B: Let the app auto select the pasting behavior based on the measure unit for the documents. (Preference to resolution if pixels unit, or preference to real size if a measure unit is selected) C: Special paste command for "paste preserving size" Hope I'm not the only one finding this important on his workflow. cheers!
  2. i have a bug, the exported SVG file is not show the real resolution. i create 100x100 px in affinity designer, and export it with export persona, but what i find when i open it in another app like Illustrator or Corel draw, it's show 800x600 px (SVGA). i export it as SVG for web and SVG for export and make some change with that option's, but i did not find the way to make it exported with same resolution. here i put 2 images. np: if i open the SVG file on affinity, there's no problem, but the problem only happened when the file is opened on another vector app
  3. On my iPad Pro 12.9 newest version, I notice that when I duplicate a whole layer or selection from layer, then merge, that I get a loss of resolution. I can regain some of the original resolution by sharpening but that doesn't sound like the ideal way to go. This does not happen on my desktop version of Affinity. This happening to anyone else? Cheers!
  4. Hi! Please Add Decimal Places for Rotation, Shear and dpi resolution (number shown in top-left when Move tool is selected) It can be useful and in many cases and make program more precise;)
  5. I'm having trouble figuring out how to export a JPEG for print. The document is set to print and is 300 dpi, however, when I save, the image is 72 dpi. I don't see an option in the save settings (attached).
  6. Hopefully someone from Affinity can answer this one: It seems that the Geekbench scores are confirming that the hardware internals of the new iPads are identical, except for the battery and screen resolutions (the 12.9 having larger batteries due to the larger display). Knowing this, will the 10.5 iPad handle more live filters and adjustment layers to be applied on a project, because of its lower screen resolution? If so, does that make the 10.5 the better choice if the main concern is squeezing performance from these tablets? I'm looking for an objective, evidence based answer: Can the 10.5" handle more adjustment layers and overall processing than the 12.9 due to the lower resolution? Thanks!
  7. 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!
  8. What steps would one need to take in order to increase the resolution and quality of a low resolution photo? I have been searching on Youtube for a tutorial on Affinity for some time now, but unfortunately all I've been able to see so far are some tutorials for Photoshop. Any help would come in handy. This is the image that I would like to have its size increased while still getting high quality image in the end if possible.
  9. I've tried to make a batch conversion to change the resolution to 72 dpi. After progress, the picture resolution is still the same. If I initial the macro manual the resolution will change as expected. What is going wrong. Please help.
  10. Hi there, I use Affinity Designer more than one year now - it is really a great software! I spent a lot of time trying to change export resolution. According to Apple Documentation, resolution of all image sizes should be always "one point (1/72 of an inch)" - https://developer.apple.com/ios/human-interface-guidelines/graphics/image-size-and-resolution/ My document setup is 72 dpi. If I export slices in @2x and @3x size - the resolution is changed to 144 pixels/inch for @2x file and 216 pixels/inch for @3x. Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug in AD? Thanks, Filip
  11. Can I increase the resolution on a jpeg photo. If possible, how to do it?
  12. I apologize if this question has been answered, but previous answered look like they referred to just the resizing of a layer relative to the canvas. Lets say I have two images - both 300 dpi. I place one image on top of the other. Now I have to scale up the front image by 10x. Effectively, the new image has only 30dpi relative the actual canvas. The layer looks very pixelated, as opposed to blurred. If I were to blow this up 10x in it's own document by resizing the image, it would look blurry but not pixelated. It appears that AP keeps placed layers in their original data size. I'm wondering if there is a way to rasterize a layer in a way that it effectively scales up the source media using bilinear scaling, so that filters could then be applied to the higher-res document. I'm attaching a closeup of the two layers on top of each other with a composite mode applied (1). You can see that the white area is sharp, as it is a text layer. The black dot that overlaps the white area is a bitmap image that was copied from another document and scaled up. The black and white versions are the original image placed in a larger image and scaled, with no effects (2), and the original image scaled to 5x using image size (3). Although Image 3 isn't perfect, it's a little better to work with and can be cleaned up with some additional filters. Also, you can see I was able to get it a little smoother by scaling in increments (4) using 2x, 2x, then about 1.3x It would be great to just be able to place this image on top of the other, then run the rasterize function to create a solid bitmap to the native resolution of the image, and then be able to apply filters to at that native resolution. Thanks!
  13. Hi, Is there a reason why my Raw images open as 96 DPI instead of 300 DPI say like in PS? Why is it reducing the res on import? Thanks in advance!
  14. Hello there, I've been using the Affinity products for a couple of days now and I'm really amazed by their capabilities. However, there seem to be a few disruptive bugs regarding the brush dynamics, both in Photo and Designer. (Note: I decided to name the bugs for future reference) "Prokaryote bug": When using the velocity control on a paint/pixel brush (Photo and Designer), there always appear big blobs at the beginning of each stroke followed by a much thinner tail, no matter how fast or slow I’m drawing. This bug has been reported here and there almost 2 (!) years ago and, yet, remains unfixed. Also, in the brush dynamics window (almost) every slider is called a “jitter”. The word “jitter” is a bit confusing as it implies that the brush is modified randomly over time while, at the same time, corresponding to how fast, or with how much pressure, etc. you draw. In other words, not completely (!) random. This doesn’t seem to be standard/what’s happening in affinity. In my understanding those “jitters” only adjust the (output) amplitude of the effect produced by the (input) controller and don’t yield actual jitter. If randomness is desired, the only option in Affinity would be to set the property to random and, thus, lose control. You cannot have both (control and randomness). Am I correct? And is this the intended behaviour? If so, the use of another word might be advised. "Diamond bug": When velocity is set for a vector brush or pencil, Designer creates jagged (diamond-shaped) brush strokes. If the stroke is rather straight and drawn with high velocity, the rough edges will stay. If the stroke is longer and curvier the jagged stroke tends to turn into a much smoother stroke as soon as the mouse button is released. Nonetheless, the stroke doesn’t seem to reflect the actual velocity changes applied and sometimes the jagged lines don’t disappear entirely. This behaviour has been demonstrated here as well. (Images 1 and 3 are before releasing the mouse button, 2 and 4 are after) "Umbrella bug": Additionally, the (vector) stroke often ends very abruptly in a big semicircle (umbrella), especially when drawing circles/spirals. All of the above-mentioned bugs appear not only in editing mode but also in the exported files: So, it’s not just a visual bug. They, unfortunately, render the velocity control pretty much useless. They also occur with clone brush, dodge & burn, sponge, erase tool and any other brush descendant. Other bugs: When the screen resolution is set to 1366 x 768 (typical laptop display resolution) or lower, the toolbar gets cut-off in Photo. I am aware of the option to undock the toolbar in the view menu but this is quite cumbersome when you start Photo for the very first time. CRITICAL: Batch processing of photos into the same directory and in the same file format as the original files (e.g. to create a lower quality copy) will result in overwritten (yes, deleted!) original photos without any prior warning. A message and an option to append some text to the exported file names would be strongly required. This, also, has been reported (here).I hope this was somewhat helpful and I'd love to see these issues resolved in the near future. Best wishes! ------------------------------------------- Affinity Designer Version: 1.5.1.43 Affinity Photo Version: 1.5.1.54 Operating System: Windows 10 Pointing device: Mouse
  15. Hi, I just started using Affinity Designer and I found one thing that significantly reduces my productivity (comparing to Inkscape). It is related to export of the vector image into multiple resolutions. On Android it is very common that one vector image is exported into multiple resolutions. Eg. launcher icon is exported into <project home>res/drawable-mdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 48x48px <project home>res/drawable-hdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 72x72px <project home>res/drawable-xhdpi/ic_launcher.png with resolution 96x96px ... Using Inkscape I made script exporting single drawing into multiple files. Is something similar possible with Designer? Thanks Tom
  16. Hello everyone! Since 1.5, I am experiencing a slowdown when copying data from a layer. For example, when I try to copy data from one layer to another, I will use the following commands in a row, which will result in the beachball being displayed for about 5 to 10 seconds: cmd + a cmd + c cmd + d Is this to be expected? I attached a test image so you can try to reproduce this with the file I used. Best wishes, Shu EDIT: Alright, the upload doesn't seem to be working. I will upload it to my website and try to link it later. EDIT2: Hardware used: 2015 Retina Macbook Pro, 16GB RAM, 2,8GHz i7 Software used: OSX 11.6
  17. I'm having a weird problem regarding printing directly in affinity designer. If i place an image, which have at least 300dpi and print it directly from AD it will be pixelated. If i export it for pdf and print from the pdf to the printer the image is fine. Attached i have 2 examples of that. Am I doing anything wrong? Or it is really a bug? Using 1.5.4 on Mac OS Sierra. It's a little bit annoying the need to export to pdf a document that i will use once. Regardless of that i'm using it for about a month, almost every day and i'm really happy with it. Great work.
  18. When working with textures for 3D work, we usually want to use so called "Power of two" resolutions, because they are more optimized. So I'd like a new category of presets: "Power of two", i.e. 128x128px, 512x512px, 4096x4096px etc. From 1x1px to 32768x32768px.
  19. Hi, could you make an input field for individual pixel resolutions (not 1x,2x,3x). into the export persona? I need it for css layouts. With this feature i could say each Slice how big he will be. Thanks Felix PS: If you don't understand what i mean look in the Files;-)
  20. Request scanning resolution be increased from the current maximum of 600dpi. This is the only feature that keeps me from migrating fully from Photoshop. My current scanner can scan pictures well above 9600dpi, but AF maximum scan resolution is only 600dpi. Smaller prints need to be scanned at a higher resolution to work effectively with them. Thanks for your consideration. Kind Regards, Danny J. McNeal
  21. Hello Affinity ! Have a weird problem and wanted to make sure i'm doing it correctly. I have a load of large scans of old photos, with multiple photos on each file. They were scanned at 1200 dpi as TIFFs. I've loaded them into Affinity and want to select each photo from the large scan and make a separate one. I've selected the area with the marquee, copied it then 'New From Clipboard' however the resultant image is clearly a lower resolution and size from the original when viewed at 100%. I've tried copying an area then creating a new file at 1200dpi and pasting it and it looks fine and the right size. It seems 'New From Clipboard' isn't transferring over the resolution maybe ? Or the size ? Or am i missing something ? Any suggestions welcome. cxi2001
  22. The problem I'm having is that Pixel View modes and exports are half the size they should be. If I export at 2x, the exported file, while named @2x is actually the resolution of a 1x export. Same goes for the Pixel View modes, they're half sized (see screenshots). So, when I export or preview at 1x, the image is pixelated down to ludicrous mode. Until today, I hadn't used Affinity since the last update (I'm now on 1.4.1), so I suppose this issue could have been introduced in 1.4.1. Here are some screenshots I took while zoomed at 100% (document setup included as well): Vector Mode (Pixel View Mode disabled): Retina Pixel View Mode: Pixel View Mode: Document Setup:
  23. Dear all, I created a workspace with different artboards, choosing 300dpi for printing. One artboard shows a poster, another one the draft for a folder, but some other ones will be used for web, as a facebook header and as profile picture for example. As I do not need 300dpi for web graphics, I am wondering how I have to combine these artboards. Or should I create separate workspaces for print and web? I'd love to have everything on one workspace, as it makes copying and moving the elements from one artboard to another so comfortable and easy. As you can see, the facebook header is much to big, as I only used the dimensions but not the actual resolution for a header. The background for the website does have the correct size but does still have 300dpi. Plus, when exporting the website background as a jpg, it turns into extremely light neon colors... might that have something to do with the export? As I have to create and finish a six paged folder today, (as in the Beetle Builder example on Vimeo), any information on how to use / combine artboards for web and print would be highly highly highly recommended! Thank you very very much! :-)
  24. Hi, I run into performance issues with AP ... but i hear so many are very happy with AP concerning performance. I read more in the forum, and the only time I saw comparable performance comments as i experience, was when people used large displays. As my hardware is powerful enough and other programs do not suffer from bad performance. So i thought i ask for feedback from you, my question would be: What monitor and resolution do you have, and how is your performance? My two answers would be: Dell 32 inch 4k; bad performance Macbook Retina; ok performance I would be thankful for your input. All the best Sascha
