  1. For over two weeks now my Affinity Photo crashed every. single. time I want to create a new document, drag and drop, create from clipboard, manual settings... nothing works. I deleted the app and reinstalled it twice, I rebooted my Mac a dozen times, during these weeks I've had to work with lower quality programs but I really need affinity photo back. I've been a happy usr for over a year but I just can't get it to work. I've sent the crash reports before but I'm stuck now, I really need to get it to work...
  2. I have been trying to output to a PDF from Affinity Photo. It does not work.The file will output but it is always created with a large white box about a1/4 of the image. Drop shadows under text is skewed also. I have tried all types of settings with the same results. I have also checked the files out in Preview and Acrobat with the same results. This is an issue as I go to press (digital and offset) often. The only way around it is to save the file as a Photoshop file, bring it in to PS and then create a PDF. That works fine but the goal is to replace Photoshop and I can't right now. Is this a bug?? Or am I doing something wrong?? Thanks......James
  3. I know this is not a clone of DrawPlus, but I cant deny the fact the shadow tool is very limited in 'Designer' and 'Photo' compared to DrawPlus and this is something I would really appreciate being worked on and implemented in the future. Cheers Ryan
  4. Hello, it would be great to have the possibility to add columns in the text frame and to connect them with each other.

  6. Silent Ocean - Campaign (2018) While studying at SAE for my Bachelor of Design, I got the change to work on a social issue campaign around noise pollution in the ocean with the goal to make 10 posters around the campaign and ended up making 12 posters, 10 badges, art display piece, and a website. This project was amazing to work on allowing myself to break out of my "normal design style" and really allow me to just play around with mix design, merging vector, paper craft, images and 3D together to create something amazing Made with: Affinity Photo (Mac + iOS (iPad Pro) Affinity Designer Autodesk Maya (for 3D) "Click Here" to view the website. __ Need of a graphic designer?

  7. Hello all. I need your help with exporting. Here’s the situation: I have one file with 10 individual wine bottles. Each bootle is an independent layer (let’s call them layers B1 to B10). I need to have a shadow and a colored background, that is exactly the same, in every image. And I need to export each B1 to B10 layers, with SHADOW and BACKGROUND layers in all images, in JPG (no need for independent layers on the final image). I’ve been testing the export persona but couldn’t find any way to do this. If I select layers B1 to B10 and create slices for export, SHADOW and BACKGROUND are not exported. Does anyone have experience with the export persona, to help me out with this issue? Is there any way of automatically export each layer, having in common a set of layers or layer group? Thank you
  8. Hi everyone, I put up a blog post about using blend ranges in the way people often use luminosity masks. You can check it out here: Hope it's of some use to you & cheers, Simon
  9. Hi Guys, I was just wondering if there was an update as to when support for RAW files taken with the Nikon B700 camera will be available? I still cannot open the raw files without them going all weird, strange colour and distorted. Thanks! Billie
  10. Hi, When I refine a mask selection, the edges get fuzzy on the default settings. The settings are: Matte Edges - Checked Border Width - 10% Smoothing - 0 Feather - 0 Ramp - 0% I've attached a screenshot to show this. The noise occurs both inside AND outside the selection. I don't mind it occuring outside as I can deal with that, however it's inside the selection that's a constant frustration. This happens regardless of the matte I use. All the demos that I've seen have had worse background contrasts, yet the edges come out clean when the Refine tool is used. I'm also using OpenGL for my display. My current version is Affinity 1.6.7. Thanks.
  11. Hello, I like to use Affinity Photo at the end of the workflow to make final adjustments. It always starts without any trouble but after a few corrections, AP freezes and I can not do anything but wait... until it becomes functional again. I do not have too many adjustment layers (only two in the last photos, see ScS). Do you experience the same problem ? I already allocate the entire ram for AP performances... what else can I do ? Thanks for any advice, Patrick
  12. Hi all . I have just moved across from adobe (photoshop and illustrator ) and loving this great software. I have both affinity apps on 3 computers (all windows 10) 1 of them is at a different location . What I am wanting to do is share my app settings , brushes , keyboard shortcuts (everything really) with all computers without having to manually export from each panel and then import on the other machines respectively. Is there anyway to do this with a cloud utility ( like Wacom has) or onedrive . or even a way to customize directories that affinity uses for all of the settings . I would love to hear how others approach this .
  13. Hello friends, I leave this recent composition that I made for a client. It was made entirely in Affinity Designer 1.6.1. I used the Affinity Photo perfection brush to define pair of images. I love the freedom, power, speed, versatility and significant time saving of this wonderful software, I love it haha. I hope you can enjoy and let your imagination go, that the software can stand anything you can imagine. Long live Affinity.
  14. What is the game about: A powerful crystal and a map to a location of 8 objects are needed to stop the Sigma from taking control of the system, Beyond Horizon is a side-scroller platformer with a top-down space travel and combat. Join Aito and his team as he travels space and explores planets and build a life in this story-driven game, all this is just beyond the horizon. About the Project: Beyond Horizon is a small project I've been working on for a couple of years now, starting off as a 2d pixel art game before moving into this mixture of vector and semi-realistic textures that I started to play around with while working on an illustrated calendar. I'm currently working on this project solo so production on the game has been slow (along with changing a lot of things required to re-start from the ground up) and I felt like I should start sharing the project. WIP: Below are some screenshots and videos from my work in progress of the game. Motion Graphic intro: Player House: Starting City: You can also follow the project at: Website: Twitter: Facebook: Instagram: YouTube: Thank you for your time and I hope you have a great day.
  15. New beta 1.6.5 : As before, I can not efficiently select a precise part of a photo with neither the selection brush tool nor the flood select tool. It's a pity that on windows, none of these tools is of efficient performance. Can we hope for the next beta ? I do not really wish to use the pen tool for every complex selection... Thanks for reading, Patrick
  16. Hello, I'm new to Affinity and i came from Photoshop. So i have few problems, i have Windows 10 It can't start without compactibilitie mode set on windows 8. It takes also long time for starting. When i want to open my RAW files in Affinity it takes a lot of time to load. When i want to adjust my RAW pictures brightness,shadows,clarity, my computer freezes for a few seconds when moving the sliders. My live brush preview also not moving smooth. I can't use the program because of how slow it goes sometimes with al the freezes and stuff. Thanks!
  17. Thought i'd share my take on chapter 5 from the workbook, Snow Queen. Model photo is the stock image provided in the chapter. Graffiti photo is my own, not sure who sprayed it (local skate park and fully allowed area) but it seems to wrap around the model really well and there is a crack/chip in the surface of the wall which lines up with the hair line of the model so well. I did this version on my iMac but have also repeated the same process on the iPad version of Photo. I did try a full black and white version, but didn't think it suited the image. Attached for those who are interested is very low res version of the graffiti shot used, If anyone wants the full res version to play around with just ask and i'll upload it.
  18. Hi. I have made a Spanish manual of Affinity Photo based on the help of the software. I hope it helps. Greetings. Affinity Photo Spanish Manual.pdf
  19. I've finally finished my latest composition. It was quite a challenge to create this mini planet along with all the elements on it. Lots of trial and error to see what fits and what not. However, I'm pleased with the final result. Welcome to the New World and enjoy your stay.
  20. Hi Everyone, I'm not normally one to post in this section, mainly as the shots i take are just of painted walls (legal graffiti) so very little editing is done but thought i'd mix things up with some Affinity Photo stuff in this section. I made the most of the bank holiday weekend and went out and about early morning. Also tested out a new NDX filter, only knowing the basics of what they do, i was clicking, then moving a stop and clicking again. This ended up with a lot of very DARK images. Anyway i was able to still make use of them and have attached the results in JPG for the forum and also the original RAW file. Love how the mist has been captured in the background which is what i was hoping for, need to work on skies next as i always seem to blow them out. Feel free to use the RAW image and have a play. I'm sure the more experienced photographers will spot any mistakes i've made, but i'm just getting to know my camera better and shooting on manual as much as possible any tips are welcome. I have a Nikon d3200 with kit lens (18-55mm). Tools used: Inpainting Most of the sliders in the Develop Persona. Little brightness and clarity boost in Photo Persona _DSC0069.NEF
  21. Hello I can't find a topic about my problem so I decided to open one. I created a water mark for my pictures and it works well with the brush tool. Now my problem is if I am close the brush tool to continue work at the picture and open the restore tool I get the restore tool and my water mark also as brush. So I can not restore at the moment. Above the Picture in Affinity Photo you can adjust your specific tool. In the restore tool there is a button called "More" With a click on it a new window is open and my water mark is deposited as brush but it is not able for me to delete it to get back the good old restore tool. Deinstalling and reinstalling Affinity also doesn't work Since the last Update I think I have that Problem. Can anybody help me please? Alex
  22. Agave takes its name from greek, meaning something deserving admiration (Linnaeus). From start to finish in APhoto, amazing leaves... Thanks for reading. Patrick
  23. Hey all! This is my new video about painting in Affinity Photo @AffinitybySerif Share please and thanks for watching!
  24. Started this painting in Corel PhotoPain(t) until it began crashing beyond repair. Continued in Affinity Photo (that has much better dynamic brushes). Inspired by a painting made by Howard Terpning. The bloke sitting second from the right is preparing a huge joint.
  25. Bought Affinity Photo last year, but took a long break from it because of the lack of a stabilizer at the time. Decided to go back to the program yesterday just to see if I could replicate my workflow from Photoshop, which I got decent results from. Still need to figure out some kinks in the system before I feel like my work in Affinity Photo is up to par with my Photoshop work. Might finish these two if I feel like it.
