I've been using the Affinity Photo application for some time now, and I find it extremely useful for a great many tasks. Consequently, I recently purchased Publisher and am learning how to use the software; again, I'm very pleased with both products. Recently, I have decided to use Publisher to prepare PDF files for Blurb, etc. Now, I have a simple question about workflow: Is it better to export my photographs as JPEGs (most, if not all POD sites require JPEGS, sRGB, etc.) with the exact dimensions that I have provided for my Picture Frames within the Publisher document, using the resampling algorithm provided by Affinity Photo, or should I just export the JPEGS full-sized, and depend upon Publisher's toolbox to perform the scaling, resampling, applying whichever algorithm it uses (bicubic, etc.)? I apologize if this is a simple question, but I make photographs not photo books (although I like learning new things). Thanks for any helpful responses/suggestions. Tom R
There doesn't seem to be a way of scaling images by a % value (e.g. select an image and scale it to 35%). I would like to be able to double click or option click on an image and enter a % value to scale the image. When manually scaling an image, selecting a corner and dragging it scales the image proportionally - in every other application one has to hold the "Shift" key down to constrain the image to scale proportionally. But the same rule doesn't apply when scaling by selecting the edge of a picture and dragging it. If you don't hold the shift key doing that the image scales in only one dimension. IMHO The Shift key should always be required to be pressed to constrain the scaling. (This is on MAC OS)
