  1. I've noticed that if I have opened, in Affinity Photo, a photo that resides in Apple Photos, using the "Edit In Affinity Photo" extension, I am not able to open a second photo in AP, as another document ,while the first file remains open. Is this a limitation of the interaction between Apple Photos and Affinity Photo, namely that only one photo at a same can be worked on through this Edit extension? I know I could probably place another file into my first file, but that's not what I want to do here. If this is a limitation, is there another way to access Apple Photos so that more than one photo file can be opened directly in AP without going through Apple Photos? All of the Apple Photos are hidden and not easily accessible in the normal way. Related to this is a bigger question: At the moment, I have over 5000 photos on my computer. Some are Iphoto files from when I used to use IPhoto. Others are Apple Photos. And then there are a lot of images in the picture folder on my Mac that I took with my camera. I'd like to find a way to consolidate all of these photos into one place so that I can tag them all and more easily work with them. I used to use Lightroom, but my copy no longer works with my upgraded OS, and I don't want to subscribe to Lightroom. I'm willing to use another piece of software as a DAM if this would help, but it has to be something that can easily import new Apple photos since more and more I'm using my Iphone to take pictures with instead of my camera. Thanks in advance for any advice and help on these topics.
  2. Is it posible to import pdf-s as image in affinity photo? Because many times client don't have all fonts what is embeded and used in pdf-s.
  3. Affinity Photo just prompted me to update to version 1.6.1. Which I did. But where can I find the patch notes for the new version? Not here in the support forum. No link in the 'About' screen of the application. No apparent link on the Affinity website. Nothing in the application's Help file. Nothing in the application's Welcome screen. Congrats, I'm stumped.
  4. Hello. I find this forum to complicated to use. Why there is not any direct support for macuser as have problem with Affinaty Photo. I se plenty treads abouth iPads. I cant say any thing work as it suppose to do when I try your tutorials. This time I complane about por/wrong resolution on the images/textures I got from internet to be used on my project Cracked Skin Effect tutorial. I am following your tutorial exactly as I suppose to do. I put 2 images Face and cracked image. File-Open but my images dont look like yours. How can I solve that nasty problem. Thanks.
  5. Hello ^-^ I just wanted to post some things I would like to be added within Affinity Photo for iOS. One of the biggest issues I have with it is file transfer. Only being able to do a single file at a time is a bit slow! so something like in Procreate would be look where you can hold select a file then select files around is to move multiple at a time then move them into the Files app. Or have a system in place where all files are saved to the cloud by default ( can be disable) a icon will be placed on the document to download the file onto said device to work on. Then you can delete it from the device but will still be on the cloud to use on another computer or to re-download on said device at a letter date (tho this might be a bit hard to do) Moving onto folders would love to be able to mass delete files within a folder so when in the folder view you can only delete a folder when all files have been removed to being able to delete a folder with all files within it would be nice. Also full keyboard support for external keyboard use (along with command/alt and control) right now there is support but limited!!! Also would love to have sub folders within a main folder would be nice ^-^ Thank you for your time, will update if I can think of other things to add.
  6. I've been delving into Affinity photo and the macros As I like to learn by doing I recorded a quick little macro for enhancing blue hour shots. It deepens the blue and adds a little warmth at the same time with adjustable parameters for denoise, exposure and more I thought I'd share it here Blue Hour enhancer.afmacro
  7. Hi there, I used an older version of Affinity Photo two years ago and used the golden spiral function. I just updated to the newest version 1.6.6 and it disappeared. Any help, guys? THX Isil
  8. Hello everybody! First of all excuse me if my english is not very good, I am a not native speaker. The last day I planned to add the Google Nix Collection to my newly adquired Affinity Photo. But now I have a problem with the size of the window. Everything appears very, very small in it (although the window size is quite normal) and is very hard to me to see actons and words, and whatever inside the pannels. Could anybody help me, please? I urgently need to know how to resize that window(s) in order to see it(them) in a normal size! thanks a lot!
  9. Hello everyone and thank you for your answers in advance. I have a huge issue with Affinity for mac: Using a Canon 1Dx mark ii camera, i capture RAW photos for the best quality, but for some reason Affinity doesn't read the white balance correctly. I usually play with a white balance to tune a nice look when possible, but this time it was a no go, because the product i photographed looks blue instead of purple! Please see attached 3 files: The original RAW, a JPG file exported via Apple Photo app (it easily detected and exported the correct white balance - Purple) and a screen shot of how it looks via Affinity Photo (Blue). Is there anything i'm missing or should i just look for a different software for pro work? Original File.CR2
  10. I'm running AP 1.6.5.61 on an iPad Air2. When I access iPhoto, choose a photo and select Edit AF is not an option. Why? I can get Pixelmator and PS Express, but not AF. BTW I've gone to SETTINGS on my iPad Air2 and AF is not revealed, even though I've paid and got AF installed. Why? Please advise, G
  11. I use Affinity Photo (and Designer) for illustrating an app for Android and iOS. My pictures are 2730 x 1536 px at 300 dpi. Not very big. Sometimes the layers are, not many, but quite a few. I try to keep the number down by merging as soon as it is OK to do so. I always backup by having *.afdesign / *.afphoto and *.psd files of the same document. Just to be safe. Before Affinity I used Photoshop CC and never had any crash. Yesterday Affinity Photo crashed on me several times. I sent the reports to Serif explaining what I was doing. As I see it, the crashes came just randomly, not that I was doing the same thing all the times the crash happend. I am on a little old computer running Win10 home 64/bit, having Intel Core i5 3450 @ 3.10GHz, quad core, 16384 MBytes RAM and Intel HD Graphics. Never had any problems with that until now. I am suspicious about my specs on the integrated graphics card / processor. Can it be the cause of the crashes, maybe? I noticed the behaviour of Affinity Photo on the blending mode "Multiply" going dim, like semi-transparent hazy looking instead the normal behaviour. That is maybe a signal of something going wrong in the graphics thing inside my machine. I restarted it twice. All problems were gone after the restart, until next crash... How demanding and relying on the graphics processor is Affinity Photo? Is it possible that my soon 6 years old computer lacks what it takes to run properly?
  12. Hi everyone, I just wanted to let people know that I've released an 8.5 hour course about Affinity Photo for the iPad here: https://www.udemy.com/affinity-photo-for-the-ipad/ - it's aimed at beginners and I've structured the course to take you from novice to competent user. I wanted to hold off starting the course until the software went through a couple of updates and the latest iOS was released so that Serif had the chance to get things ticking over nicely. So here it is, and I hope you get a lot out of it. Thanks for your interest, Simon
  13. Hi. Please add the ability to change the ruler's unit of measure from pixels to inches. Print-related work is often measured in inches (here in the U.S.). I am sure other units of measure would be appreciated by others, as well. Please allow a right-click on the Ruler to change the units of measure. Thank you!
  14. so how do i make the affinity photo pen pressure to work on yiynova, i am having trouble to get it to work on it. i have a yiynova 22u rh i did what i could on the affinity photo like i did with photoshop on how to make the pen pressure but it all wobbly line.
  15. I'm having an issue when using Affinity Photo or Designer with Astropad connected or a Wacom Intous 5 touch connected, where the fans on my MBPr 15" go on high and stay there until I'm done with the selections and deselect. Once that's done then everything calms down and goes back to normal. This only happens with these devices connected. Using selection tools without them connected there is no issue. Connected to using the selection tools and the fans is that sometimes for no apparent reason the selection tools just won't work at all, but the fans kick on while trying to use them as if they are working. It's bizarre and weird to say the least. Seems like the selection tools are having issues in many ways. I also have Photoshop and there is no issue using the program or it's selection tools with these devices connected. Why would having a drawing device connected to the computer cause this program to struggle with selections? This is a huge problem for it stresses the computer for no reason. I do not want to go back to Adobe products, but cannot stress my very expensive computer on such a simple task all day long. Also, cannot use this program if these tools just don't work for no apparent reason. Please fix this! Thank you for any and all info regarding this issue and for anything you can do to fix it.
  16. Hi, new user here. Would greatly appreciate an assist. Affinity Photo 1.6.0.89 I'm having some difficulty getting layers to show in exported pdfs. I've searched around. Is it just me? Exporting 3.5x2" 400dpi image with 10 layers into a pdf. Nothing is shown in the layers panel of several pdf viewers and editors. Did I overlook something simple?
  17. Any advice on the best settings for performance in preferences on Photo - memory usage etc? I've had a quick search but can't find anything on here. I have 64bit Windows system with 16gb ram, Intel i5-2500K 3.30ghz, with Nvidia GTX GeForce 1050 ti. Current settings are attached. My problem has been generally sluggish performance, waiting for effects to play catch-up with Retina Rendering at Highest Quality and a far too pixelated image when it's set to low quality.
  18. Old Racers Hi Affinity Community. My new personal work painted with Affinity Photo. I hope you like it. More work in progress pictures: Old Racers on Behance
  19. I recently purchased Affinity Photo and everything seems to run fine, with the exception of textured brushes. Whenever I select anything other than a basic brush, I get a tremendous amount of lag. I have the 128 GB Surface 3 (not Pro). I’ve looked it up and asked the affinity twitter account, and everything says it should be able to handle it. Photoshop ran fine as well, if that counts for anything. Thanks in advance for any help. Kyle
  20. As shown in the attached image. Used to work fine in 1.5 (although very crash prone). Thanks!
  21. Hi, I've noticed an issue when opening raw files in AP1.6.6 that I'm sure wasn't there in the previous version. Also it doesn't show up when I use Adobe Camera Raw (ACR), Lightroom or just Preview in OSX El Capitan. It seems as if Affinity is showing more of the image, if you view the attached screen shots Affinity is showing a lot more of the leaves in the top right corner as well as a dark band across the top of the image. Lightroom is showing less of the leaves in the top right corner and no dark band. Preview and ACR display the image the same is Lightroom. I use a Panasonic compact TZ60 raw files. Affinity displays the equivalent jpg without this problem. Just checked in LR the image is 3264 x 4896 pixels and in Affinity it is 3280 x 4912 regards Ade
  22. Since High Siera was installed on my Mac, Affinity Photo crashes when I try to open up PREFERENCES in the AFFINITY PHOTO application
  23. Hi Folks, I'm trying to add some C, M, Y values only to Blacks in Selective Color Adjustment, but it's not working. I'm working in relative mode, and also when that box is disabled, but there is no effect. Is there any option to make some adjustments just like in PS when Absolute mode is enabled? Thanks, Adam. :)
  24. Hello, I created 25 types to fill objects. Designia Styles.afstyles
  25. Hi I paid a designer to create a logo for me. They have done it using Adobe Illustrator and esported to .eps and .pdf for me. When I open the pdf file in Adobe Reader or Internet Explorer, the logo loos as expected. However, when I open both the .eps file and the .pdf file in Affinity Photo, there are gaps between the shapes/colours, which should be touching eachother with no gaps. Is this a bug with Affinity Photo? As a result of the issues, the files provided to me are useless because I cannot do anything with them without there being a gap between the colours. I have attached 2 screen captures of the problem - you can see the problem more clearly on the one where I have zoomed in - there are white pixels along the edge of the vector edges, even though the shap has no outline, just a fill. It's almost as if Affinity Photo is not anti-aliasing the edges correctly. One thing I thought it might have been, is when AP tries to 'snap to pixels' so I turned that option off before opening the file but it made no difference. Any thoughts/comments/suggestions appreciated!!!! Thanks, Rob
