  1. I have tried several times but I am not able to get in Affinity Photo the high quality of displacement maps that I do in Photoshop. In either program I select the color channel for with the best depth information and save the single channel as a new pixel layer. In Photoshop I save the channel as PSD, in Affinity in PNG of course. When I work with the same images then in Photoshop and displace the result is usually very good. In Affinity sorry to say I get a mess. I watched the videos on your site several times, and you show type over a rocky surface. I've been trying to work on a logo over a fabric with wrinkles and folds and the logo disintegrates, whereas it folds nicely in Photoshop. I have tried reloading other color channels (from saved PNGs) as well as selecting from the layer underneath. This is a very essential feature for me and I really would like to see what I am doing wrong or if there this is going to be improved later on please let me know.
  2. Hi, in the last beta of Affinity Photo for Mac (I'm using Mojave 10.14.2) the right click (or ctrl+click) doesn't work on spare channels so that it's not possible rename or assign it. Thanks

    Affinity Photo Workbook

    Hi All, As announced in a recent blog post we have launched the Affinity Photo Workbook to accompany the desktop versions of Affinity Photo Affinity Photo Workbook Launch Announcement November 23, 2017 We are proud to announce the launch of the official Affinity Photo Workbook, our first ever guide to Affinity Photo on macOS and Windows. Painstakingly put together over many months, the long-awaited Workbook teaches you everything there is to know about Affinity Photo and mastering its powerful tools and capabilities. . This is a big book - 488 pages, in hardback - and it includes fantastic projects created by some top photographers, as well as a comprehensive reference to all our tools and panels, and a set of core skills tutorials. For those who are interested, there is a further blog post describing the creation process Behind the Scenes: Creating the Affinity Photo Workbook November 27, 2017 As we released our glossy full-colour Affinity Photo Workbook last week, we thought you might like to take a look into how it was created… You can find more information about it here. Usual price is $49.99 / £37.99 (+ shipping and handling). It's available in English and German. Hope you like it!
  4. How many of you would be interested in including AppleScript functionality for Batch processing in Photo, Basic Template Creation is Designer and automated Catalogue/Book Creation in Publisher? The key is to automate repetitive tasks and let you focus more on the finer details on creative work? I am a bit of an AppleScript fanatic and like to automate certain things to free up my mind for the refining process of creative work. Adobe used to have AppleScript functionality built-in to their design apps (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign) before, but now I am not so sure since they went and made Creative Cloud (I don't like subscription software). The intention of this proposed feature is only to automate the basic repetitive tasks for batch work and creating ready-made template designs in fewer steps and free up the creative mind for higher level work such as refinement of a project; in a smaller phrase to be more efficient with your time.
  5. It seems like the issue has been around for a while. If you apply global colors to a gradient - they do not update when you modify the global colors themselves. Is there a way to have either a 'global gradient' or a way to properly link global colors into a gradient?
  6. Agave takes its name from greek, meaning something deserving admiration (Linnaeus). From start to finish in APhoto, amazing leaves... Thanks for reading. Patrick
  7. Hi. I replaced Photoshop with Affinity Photo. I ran into something strange. If I copy and image online to the clipboard and create a new document from the clipboard...if I try and use the magic wand tool on the image, it doesn't do anything. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a bug? Thank you, Carlos Affinity Photo Windows 10 - 64bit 32GB of RAM - i7 - Nvidia 1080
  8. Beyond Horizon is a 2D side-scroller game focusing on story and exploration both on land and within the stars. Explore dungeons, towns or fight space pirates with your ship, while uncovering the lore and the secrets behind the Sigma and the original race, all of this is just Beyond the horizon. Join the Discord Community!Follow development on Notion! What is the game about: Beyond Horizon follow Aito after his grandfather suddenly has to leave, 3 years later with no return he tries to save up everything he has in-order to afford a spaceship to go after him. While on a routine mission to find a missing cargo supply he comes across a stone that once touched absorbs into Aito giving him powers along with a map to 8 location. Unknowingly awakening an evil force to his location.Now to save his town the only option is to flee, they attempt to lure the Sigma away with his friends in a stolen spaceship, now the only option is to run. Following the map to each location in the hopes to stop this Sigma killing the system. 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.

    A true Lightroom Photoshop combo replacement

    Affinity Photo 1.7 beta completely replaced my Photoshop needs. I would like to have a Digital Asset Management software like Lightroom from Affinity. This will enable culling and then taking them to Affinity Photo for more detailed work. So how to do image management until we get another gem from Affinity? Nikon View NX-i does the job for basic image management. View NXi + Affinity Photo is a true replacement of subscription based Adobe Photography CC plan. Right Click The Image you want to take to Affinity Photo. Register If you have not registered before. Another way to take your image to Affinity Photo.
  10. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to make a poster similar to Obama's "hope" poster. I've seen a a few tutorials done using photoshop but im reluctant to try those because i know i would get lost eventually trying to follow along on affinity photo. Anywho, does anyone have a good tutorial they could link me? Thank you. If there are none to be found then its ok. i just wanted to try it out. My Favorite learning tool so far have been youtube videos where i can follow along. thanks.
  11. I'm just trying to use a mask to replace the background of my photo. I add the mask and a background layer. I've tried a selection to mask and just a blank mask. But when I try to use the brush to adjust the mask, there is no change. I've tried going from all black and using a white brush and the opposite, all white with a black brush. No response. I'm so frustrated. I'm sure it must be user error, but I cannot figure out what I'm missing. Thank you in advance for your time and help! Update: Using the brush on a regular layer doesn't do anything either, so I must have a weird brush setting going. Solution: Turn off "Protect Alpha."
  12. When I create a new document, I am given a white background for my new document. How do I create a document with a different color? I'm sure this must be easy, but I am a new user of AP. (longtime user of Photoshop). Thanks!
  13. As a long-type PhotoShop user, I am used to being able to copy layer effects (fx) from one layer to another. This could be done with a context menu selection. I have not found this capability in Affinity Photo. Does it exist? I found another user had posted an answer regarding another of your products, but I don't see that feature in Affinity Photo. Thanks for your input.
  14. Hi! Pigmento is a set of 84 raster brushes carefully handcrafted for digital painters Designed for Affinity Photo and Designer, this set offer natural media look and feel. Acrylics, Gouaches, Oils and more with expressive colour dynamics and tablet responsiveness to speed, pressure and direction. Now updated with DAUB Spatula set (12 new tools for Paint Mixer Tool) and a new classification: you'll find them in different categories, hopefully now it should be easier to spot the correct tool! Check this video for a quick sample! This set is fully compatible with Windows and iOS Version of Affinity. This is a quick concept done using one of the included tool, to show the colour dynamic and blending features. Some Tips DAUB Grunge Acrylic 4 This is a brush that creates nice textures with a glaze effect and continuous tone modulation using pen pressure. You can use it as a pure cover changing the blending mode to Normal. Do you know that with Pixel tool presets if you press CMD key while painting you can erase using the same preset? Get it here I'll improve these tool with free updates, so if you want those please add your real email to the purchase page. Happy Painting! Paolo
  15. Hi folks, I just noticed another bug, this time with the clone and healing brushes in Photo. The clone brush does not obey the force pixel alignment option. This becomes a problem when there is fine-grained texture or very small text or detail that must be cloned. To see what I mean, follow these steps: 1. create a new document and make force pixel alignment enabled. 2. create a grey rectangle. 3. add maximum noise to the rectangle. 4. rasterise the very noisy rectangle. 5. zoom all the way in to clearly see the pixel detail of the noise. 6. select the clone brush tool and set a source point for cloning. 7. without clicking, move the mouse around to preview the clone At this last step, you can see that it's hard to ensure that the clone will be sharp, as most of the time it is off pixel alignment and the resampling destroys all the detail. This is pretty bad. I was wondering why my cloned areas were so blurry, and this was the reason. Also, here are some other issues I noticed while trying to reproduce the clone/heal alignment bug: 1. If you make a fill layer and add noise, either with live or static filters, no noise appears. In fact it looks like no filters or adjustments work when nested inside a fill layer. This is odd, especially because filters and adjustments will work on shapes such as rectangles. 2. Even though adjustments and filters can be nested inside each other at the root tree level, the nested one does not get applied. Cheers, Jules
  16. I use Affinity Photo Mac version. I am a Adobe CC user before. Last month I need to batch convert about 2000 svg icons to PNG with 20 different categories. I tried Illustrator action, failed. I tried Photoshop Image Processing, succeed, but I got blurry PNG files. Then I tried Inkspace, unfortunately, I got the same result wz Photoshop. Then I Googled Affinity Photo and installed a trial version. With the Batch Job feature I finished convert all svg files at last. But it was not easy, I cannot add folders with sub-folders, I had to add 20 times for each folder. Luckily,I got high quality PNG files for svg files. Then I decided to purchase a full version. But soon after I found a problem: This app always miss some files when do Batch Job. It means I have to pick the svg files not converted manually after each converting. Have anyone meet the same problem? How to resolve this? Thanks. My English is poor, hope you will understand.
  17. Hi, It happened twice consecutively on two different files : the clone brush tool is selected and I convert the file from RGB/32 to RGB/16, then AP crashes. At the reopening, all modifications are lost although a "recovery file" could be opened. Cheers, Patrick [Edit : crash reports have been automatically sent]
  18. I'm using Affinity Photo 1.6.4 on a Windows 7-64 bit Home Premium machine. I have some TIFFs that Affinity Photo does not open correctly--even though Windows Photo Viewer, DxO PhotoLab, and GIMP open them fine. For whatever it may matter, these TIFFs are grayscale instead of RGB, and are 16 bits per pixel. Opening the file brought up the Develop persona instead of the Photo persona. The file displayed completely wrong--grossly over-exposed, high contrast, like somebody had grabbed the top right of the tone curve and dragged it almost all the way to the left edge (while leaving it at the top). The first attachment is a screen capture from immediately after opening the file. The second attachment is a screen capture of the same file opened in Windows Photo Viewer, which displayed it correctly. Back to the Affinity screen capture. Note the histogram at top right, which seems to correspond to what I see. Maybe more significantly, note the "RGBA/32 (HDR) - RAW" text toward the top left, which seems to be wrong. In other words, Affinity appears to be misconstruing what it's opening. Just as an experiment, I clicked Develop, but the image did not get fixed or even change appreciably. Also: this is a big file, over 150 MB and 80 MP (it's a scan of an old 8x10 negative). In case you want to experiment, the file's page at the U.S. Library of Congress is: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/det/item/2016796043/ and the direct location of the full-resolution TIFF is: http://cdn.loc.gov/master/pnp/det/4a20000/4a23000/4a23600/4a23684a.tif Thanks!

  20. I seem to be unable to access brushes in Affinity Photo: Whenever I touch the brushes palette, AP locks up: If I touch the brushes palette with my mouse pointer, I get a beachball, and AP stops responding. If I use the "more" button in the brush configuration bar, the textures are simply missing, but the app stays responsive. Essentially, I cannot change any brushes except the one currently configured (well, that's something, but less than I expected.) Launching the app registers starts with an error and two warnings (and lots of other stuff not categorized as error or warning) in the log console (filter "Affinity Photo" applied; reference to user directory edited) -- I guess this has little or none to do with the problem at hand: SoftwareMap: Error: Spotlight reported a change to an app that isn't in our data structures: <CKSoftwareProduct: 0x7f84822527c0>: (com.seriflabs.affinityphoto, 1.6.7, 824183456:824402592 VPP:NO md:0x7f847fea0390 /Applications/Affinity Photo.app) ... Unable to load Info.plist exceptions (eGPUOverrides) Sandbox: Affinity Photo(1780) deny(1) file-read-data /Users/<myuser>/Library/Preferences/com.apple.LaunchServices/com.apple.launchservices.secure.plist When I triggered the lock-up, the log is quickly filled with this log message: Error Domain=MTLLibraryErrorDomain Code=3 "Compilation failed: program_source:1147:11: error: no matching function for call to 'min' return min(args..., args...); ^~~ program_source:1933:19: note: in instantiation of function template specialization 'min<unsigned int>' requested here loc = min(source_bounds.y*source_bounds.x-1,loc); ^ /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/GPUCompiler.framework/Versions/3902/Libraries/lib/clang/902.1/include/metal/metal_integer_math:163:15: note: candidate function template not viable: requires 2 arguments, but 0 were provided METAL_FUNC _O min(T x, U y) ^ program_source:1144:4: note: candidate function template not viable: requires at least 2 arguments, but 0 were provided T min(T val1, T val2, Args... args) ^ program_source:378:21: note: candidate function not viable: requires 2 arguments, but 0 were provided inline cmykaf_type min(cmykaf_type lhs, cmykaf_type rhs) I think it stops generating more log entries after some time, but I'm not sure. I installed some brushes I bought from the Serif shop lately into Affinity Designer (which still works, even with those brushes, vector and pixel). I kind of fear this has something to do with those brushes, but I really don't know how to zero in further on the problem.

    Proud of my next Thumbnail

    This will be the thumbnail for my next video. The character was drawn in Krita, everything else, Affinity Photo
  23. I have a colour photo, to which i add Black & White Adjustment layer, I want to adjust the RGB sliders so they only work on a selected area, not the whole B&W picture. I can't seem to figure how - I've tried using masks. Any advice, or are there any tutorials dealing with this? Thanks
  24. This bug exists since AP for Ipad was invented, unfortunately its on (my) AP for Mac now, as well. I use the DAUB Watercolor brushes a lot, as soon as I mark a selection, the watercolor-structer disappears. I know, other illustrators have that same problem, at least on IPad. I really hope you guys from Serif will solve this problem, because I can not use Affinity at all for my work like this. I returned to use Photoshop which I originally wanted to quit. Please :-)
