  1. Is there anyone here who creates illustrations for stock sites like Getty or Shutterstock and has figured out a way to reliably export a usable EPS version 10 file? I have tried EPS, PDF, and SVG with no luck. It is so unreliable, even using just flat colors (because gradients can really be a problem), that it's often easier just using Illustrator instead. I know there is this strange thing about Adobe playing nice with others in regard to the allowing of exporting an ai file (if that makes sense) but they seem fine with the export of psd files. Thanks Bill
  2. I have tried to retrieve images from Unsplash through the Stock panel in Publisher several times and repeatedly get the message "Connection Failed." I can however use the link to go to the website. This problem also exists in Affinity Photo. Is there a fix for this? Unsplash has undoubtedly better images and a larger selection. While downloading from their website is not such a big problem, it does complicate the workflow and I believe solving that was the point of including the Stock panel feature.
  3. Is it by design that you can't open or download images from the stock studio panel if no document is open?
  4. Hi, Affinity Forum! I recently purchased AD and AP to scratch an itch and start doing more of my own graphics design work. As I become accustomed to the software and develop my design skills, I lean on stock graphics websites for things I can't yet build myself. The problem is that I'm having a very hard time finding graphics and illustrations that can be reliably managed by AD/AP. It didn't take me long to figure out that free graphics are out, which is just as well because those sites are a nightmare to navigate. I also found that with many inexpensive graphics, AD would either report that the file doesn't contain a PDF stream so it can't be opened, or it would automatically assign a color palette to the file and it would look too distorted to use. Based on my experience, I think the problem isn't with AD/AP but my graphics sourcing. I've had a little bit of luck with VectorStock, but I haven't found any websites that track the kind of compatibility features that AD needs (like a PDF stream for .ai files). Has anyone come up with guidelines for AD/AP-safe stock graphics or identified any sites that are consistently reliable? Shutterstock seems like the obvious choice, but I want to see if there are any less expensive alternatives, or at least any sites that sell assets individually. Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!
  5. Hi, The Stock panel worked for me in Beta of Photo, but with release of the final version I get "connection failed". I'm working on W10. Any ideas?
  6. I'm using the latest versions (1.7.1) of both Affinity Photo – and Affinity Publisher (1.7.1). This crash is consistently reproducible. Steps to reproduce: Open Affinity Photo 1.7.1 (or Publisher 1.7.1) Create new blank document Go to Stock panel Search Unsplash - instant crash Searching the two other Stock sources, Pexels and Pixabay, seems to be robust. OS: macOS High Sierra (10.13.6) See this 33 second video in case I'm missing anything from the description: affinity Stock crashes-Video only.mp4 No new software nor hardware installed recently that might explain this. Curiously, I tried this feature briefly on my office iMac yesterday and all three worked there. On my roughly similarly specced and configured iMac at home, there are consistent crashes when searching Unsplash in both Photo and Publisher. Today was the first time I have tried the Stock search at home. I wondered at first if I might have caused a problem when adding a rule to my 3rd-party firewall, Little Snitch. But the problem persists even when LS is stopped, so almost certainly not relevant. You can see I actually turn it off first in the video. I've attached the two most recent crash logs from Photo and Publisher for your enjoyment. Let me know if I can add anything that might help… Affinity Photo_2019-06-21-171012_iMac27.crash Affinity Publisher_2019-06-21-143220_iMac27.crash
  7. The Stock panel looks like it could be very useful but I have some questions about its use: 1. Are all of the images presented totally free to use without any restrictions? For example, images with identifiable people may need extra permission to use legally but there is no mention of this in the Stock panel for the specific images where it might apply. How can someone be sure whether the image is usable for their purposes without going to the relevant page on the website - which undermines the usefulness of the Stock panel? (The Help mentions “Commercial” and “Model Released” but I can’t see these anywhere on-screen.) 2. Is there a way to find out the dimensions/orientation of the image before I drag it out of stock? Since all of the thumbnails are square I can’t see if the image is portrait or landscape, which is often useful to know. 3. Is there a way to restrict/choose the size of the image before I drag it to a document? If I am editing a document for web/screen-use it might be useful to be able specify a lower resolution/size rather than always automatically getting the largest possible image. 4. How does Publisher calculate the size of an image file it gets from Stock? For example, downloading an image https://pixabay.com/photos/fantasy-beautiful-dawn-sunset-sky-3077928/ from Pixabay itself gives me a 1.83MB file (see first attached image) whereas when I import the same image from the Stock panel, Publisher is reporting that the image is 41.09MB (see second attached image), which is a very big difference. As I said earlier, the Stock panel looks like it could be useful but, if I don’t know what I’m getting from it, it becomes less useful and, potentially, problematic when it comes to things like licences.
  8. Good evening, Whenever I go under the Stock tab to load images, Pexels and Pixabay work fine, but Unsplash displays the error message "Failed to connect" I do not understand why. Is there a solution to remedy this problem? Thanking you
  9. I am having a problem with the latest version of Affinity Photo for Windows (1.7.1.404). Previously, when importing an image from the Stock image browser, the image loaded almost instantly. Now, the image takes roughly 2 minutes to load, if at all. Most of the time, it freezes Affinity Photo and I have to Ctrl+Alt+Delete and restart.
  10. I have some problem with EPS8 exported from Affinity always have a big size of artboard when open in AI (illustrator) (stock agency rejected). Not so sure is it about compatibility issue? Is it possible to have an original artboard size for final EPS8 or anyone have the solution for final EPS8 from Affinity for the stock market? - Thanks in advanced.
  11. Affinity Designer rasterizes stock vectors that are saved as EPS format. Is there a workaround for this? I can't see it being an Adobe illustrator replacement if this can't be achieved.
  12. Hello. I saw there three Stock photo operators: Shutterstock, Depositphotos, 500px. Is it possible create plugin to own stock operator? I don't like this three, but customisation will be fine. Thank you.
  13. Hey everyone! Unfortunately I couldn't find a comment about this question. If there is already a topic, please refer to it. What about other suppliers of stock photos? In all applications there is already the palette called "Stock". Among it you can see a drop-list, but it only contains one item/supplier which is Shutterstock. Are there plans to add more picture agencies, maybe some creative commons like Unsplash as well? Or will the community have the possibility to edit the list itself at some point? <- That would actually be awesome. Is it possible to express wishes as to which agencies should be available for selection? Regards MrDoodlezz
  14. I've recently made the switch to the affinity package, and am still in the space of 'between software' as I get used to the new. I currently run an older Adobe Suite and use Bridge quite a bit. I cannot seem to find anything in Affinity Photo/Designer that does the same job. BUT note there is a Stock Panel, which seems to allow you to browse I-stock. Could this be modified to allow you to browse a users own collections? OR maybe I'm missing something? As I said, I’m still new to this software. My initial reaction to both applications is - really good! Works well and does the job. I've had Designer crash a few times on more complex work (this was usually with blur filters applied) to multiple vector shapes. That being said, CS4 can also do the same, especially when zooming in and out in Illustrator. If anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be really appreciated. Thanks!

  16. It would be very helpful, if dragging & dropping a picture from the "Stock" palette in AP would create a layer with the filename of the image. Currently it creates a layer that is just called "(Picture)" which makes it "a bit" difficult to find that image again in case you want to buy it... Thanks & best wishes Tom
  17. Would it be possible to integrate additional scrubbers for stock websites: iStock Photo (http://istockphoto.com) Dollarphotoclub (https://www.dollarphotoclub.com)
