  1. When I use the crop tool in photo 1.8.4, and only cropping one side, it adds the amount I am cropping to the opposite side. I have done this repeatedly on separate files. I have even rasterized and trimmed the photo and it still happens. I am on macOS Catalina 10.15.5.
  2. 21 macros for Affinity Photos to make your photo awesome :) Made by me Download: Egor_Komarov_color_grading.afmacros Examples: Download: Egor_Komarov_color_grading.afmacros
  3. Windows 10 Home 1903, Photo 1.7.1.404 and Designer 1.7.1.404. As part of an experiment I (fairly randomly) found an SVG https://pixabay.com/vectors/car-black-vehicle-transport-travel-311713/ that I wanted to use but upon opening it in Photo and Designer (haven’t bothered trying Publisher) I see that it hasn’t been imported correctly. A lot of the detail is missing and there are bigger issues – see attached snapshots from Designer and Photo. It’s not a big problem for me as I can use the raster version instead but I thought I’d mention it so someone can look into it (there’s a chance that the original SVG is to blame so it might not be an Affinity problem).
  4. Hi, I'm new to use Affinity Photo and Affinity Design. Till now I used Photoshop. I'm missing some function in Affinity. Can someone tell me how to rotate the canvas in Affinity Photo and how to change the Brush size with the mouse like Photoshop.
  5. I have not used my laptop for some time, so I allowed it to update my Windows 10 system to ver 10240. I then downloaded the latest versions of Affinity Photo and Designer. In each of these I got the message "Supported Windows Version not found. Checking with the system dialogue, It tells me I have a 64-bit operating system on a 64-bit processor. Both the old versions of Photo and Designer still work OK, but invite me to update, which I did. John
  6. Hello, can any of the Affinity applications make a monotone photo using a specific spot colour? The documents are always printed CMYK (offset or digital) or just viewed as PDF, but I would like to be able to make the original in the client's PMS colour. Since time began (when 2 colour printing was still a thing – ha, ha, am I that old?!) I've made these by converting the original pic to B&W in Photoshop then dropping into QXP and adding 100% of a colour to the image and whatever a percentage (depending on legibility requirements) as a background. I'm hoping one of, or a combination of Affinity apps can do the same. Thank you. PS. Example photo section attached Monotone example.pdf
  7. Hi there, I used a 3D effect and Outer Glow on the ball and a layer behind the ball with a brush of white paint. The jpg looks even uglier. See screenshots. Best regards, Puck.
  8. Some time ago I created a set of macros to resize an image to a fixed maximum size, as described here. Recently @DanThePhotoMan asked about resizing to a fixed minumum size here. I have revisited these macros and created two sets, one resizing to fixed maximum size and the others to a fixed minimum size. They are all based on the following sequence for the maximum set: Layer > Unlock Layer > Rasterize and TrimFilter > Distort > Equations Enter the following in the x and y fields, substituting your own maximum size, then Apply (x/MAXSIZE)*max(h,w) (y/MAXSIZE)*max(h,w)Document > Clip Canvas Layer > RasterizeSelect > Alpha Range > Select Partially Transparent Edit > Fill> Inpainting Select > Deselect Where MAXSIZE is from the following pixel sizes: 640, 800, 1000, 1280, 1600, 2000. The set to resize to minimum is similar except that it uses min(w,h) instead of max(w,h) in step 3 (Equations). There is also a pair of macros to resize to an arbitrary size (up to 4000px). This macro pauses to allow you to enter a parameter a. It is convenient to enter this parameter in the form of MAXSIZE/4000, where MAXSIZE is the maximum (or minimum) required size. For example, if you wanted to resize to 3000px, you would enter 3000/4000, which evaluates to 0.75. (You could enter 0.75 if you wanted.) Note that the resizing algorithm in the Equations process is not defined. Here are the macros as a library (.afmacros) file. Resize.afmacros John @Traveler @Gnobelix @affwin @firstdefence
  9. I am having the same issue some photos are fine others gets too much contrast when I open them into Develop persona
  10. When working with photos/images in Affinity Designer, (with Affinity Photo installed), there should be an easy way to launch Affinity Photo (or another chosen bitmap editor) from within Affinity Designer to edit bitmap images (beyond the photo editing capability integrated into Affinity Designer). This should be available both from the right mouse context menu and the context aware bar across the top when a bitmap image is selected. With such excellent Affinity application interoperability I am surprised this has not yet been implemented. This type of integration should also be incorporated into Affinity Publisher. Another possible interface enhancement, could be to (optionally - in preferences?) replace the Affinity Designer Pixel Persona with the Affinity Photo 'Photo Persona'. If this capability were implemented, it would still be useful to include the ability to launch Affinity Photo as a bitmap editor from within Affinity Designer, as Affinity Photo provides further capability (i.e. Liquify Persona and Tone Mapping Persona). I would love the integration of the Affinity Photo 'Photo Persona' with Affinity Designer when editing bitmap images within Affinity Designer. (Considering how these applications are designed I wouldn't be shocked if such integration were technically feasible.)
  11. For example, View-> Roted Left is repeated 6 times and the canvas is rotated 90 degrees to the left. When you drag the canvas up with the View Tool, the vertical scroll bar moves down. This is no problem. However, if you move the vertical scroll bar down, the canvas moves to the left. The same applies to Photo and Publisher.
  12. When using the brush tool in Affinity apps I always get very odd brush size increments when using the square bracket ( [ ] ) keys to change the brush size. If I use a 10px brush and use "]" to size it up one increment, it doesn't go to the expected 15px, but rather to 11,5 px. And then, if I press the "[" key to size the brush back down to 10px from 11,5px, it randomly ends up at 9,8px (?). Pressing "]" three times from 9px results in 9px, 10,4px, 11,9px, and 13,7px, instead of the expected 9px, 10px, 15px, and 20px values. I find this a bit strange, as I feel that decimal pixel values for brush sizes make little to no difference, and it's just generally odd that using the square brackets to change brush sizes doesn't just use rounded increments - I hate mentioning Photoshop as a reference example, but if if ain't broke... For instance, using the brackets between the values 1px and 10px should only change the brush size in increments of 1px (1,2,3,4,5px...), anything between 10px and 50px should change in increments of 5px (10, 15, 20, 25, 30px...), anything between 50px and 100px should change in increments of 10px (50, 60, 70, 80, 90px...), anything between 100px and 200px should change in increments of 25px (100, 125, 150, 200px), then 50px, and anything above 300px should change in increments of 100px every time you press the square bracket(s). Is there a significance to these weird, decimal pixel increment values? If so, is there a way to change it back to something more normal/user friendly?
  13. I was building some fairly large panoramas in Affinity Photo today, pointed AP at 30-40 raw files and sent it on its way. I was working on another (non-AP related) task when my C: drive filled up! I had to scramble to free up some space. Several programs I had started panicking on the low disk space, though I never saw a message from AP. I ended up canceling the rendering of my panos to worry about it later. When I closed AP, several gigs were cleared up on C:. I have a larger data disk that I would prefer to be used for this type of temporary data, but I couldn't find anything in the settings pages that allowed me to change it. Is there a setting for this, and if so, where? Thanks!
  14. I would like to : • draw an ellipse outline over a photo (no fill in the ellipse) • select the pixels under (within) the ellipse • invert the selected pixels • darken the inverted pixels • Or, copy the pixels under the ellipse (or any other selection) and paste them on a new layer. I've been doing this for 30 years in Photoshop and GIMP but cannot do it in AFF Photo. The photograph is a pixel layer. In fact, I cannot even copy what's under the ellipse and paste in on a new layer. What's the secret?
  15. Hi there, Newbie here. I'm curious as to why my Mac is giving me the error beep whenever I try to load or infer a LUT on my photo. The layer will get created but it will not allow me to actually load or infer a LUT from existing photos. Any help or explanation would be appreciated!
  16. i've tried to install the Seamless Textures Plugin for PS CS6 in Affinity Photo. But it won't work. I've downloaded a .zxp file. is there any posibillity to install this kind of plugin file in affinity photo ? Thanks for your Help !!!
  17. Just want to add myself to the list of recent crashes. Using Affinity Photo 1.8.3.641, and reloading an image to continue working, as I go back through the history slider, the whole app crashes, no matter how many times I reload that same file I get the same problem. If I start from scratch and repeat the same actions I don't have a problem. Somewhere along the work process of the problem file I seem to have introduced a bug? I don't know not the expert here. I have the same issue when I start to load a new file, a few times the app will totally crash, no warning so no crash report. I'm not saying that this a problem with affinity's software, but it only seems to occur with this app. Personally I think it could just be a microsoft glitch which shuts but as I said I'm no expert. As there are so many user of Microsoft it could be a common denominator...all guesswork. So hoping you can help please? Thanks
  18. Fill layers do not respond to live filters. I have tried "Add noise", "Vignette", "Halftone", "Voronoi" and "Procedural textures". Well, as far as I know, fill layers internally are vector objects and thus might be treated different from pixel layers, but on the other hand the forementioned live filters are applicable to vector shapes such as rectangles or ellipses. So, why not use a flood-filled pixel layer? Well, the main reason for using a fill layer is the possibility to change the colour on the fly right from the colour picker dialogue. The flood fill tool is cumbersome to use here. I just made a strange discovery: When you rasterise a fill layer, its label changes to Pixel. So far, so good. From now on all the live filters work as expected. Ok. But when you now go to the colour picker and change the colour, the "pixel" layer is updated as if it was still a fill layer. So why doesn't a fill layer respond to live filters in the first place? Windows 10, AP 1.8.3
  19. Hi everyone, I'm new to affinity designer and have a question, that may have been answered before, but bec. I don't know the right terminology couldn't find. What is the most effective and easy way to shape the right picture like the left one? Thank you so much for your help! - Julius
  20. Why can I not paint in Affinity Photo? It is as if the program does not register that I am putting a black paint stroke on a layer...or any other color stroke for that matter.
  21. When sampling a color with the paint brush tool by pressing the ALT key, always the global color as it can be seen on the screen is sampled. If there are brightening or darkening layers above the current layer, the sampled color is brightened or darkened once more, which ends up in a completely wrong color. The actual color picker tool has a source setting "Current layer" which samples the correct color. So either the paint brush tool should consider the color picker tool's source setting when sampling a color or it needs an own setting for sampling colors.  There is a dark blue circle on the middle layer used as sampling source. The top layer has a brightening effect. The color for the lower dot on the right was sampled with the actual color picker tool with source set to "Current layer", the color is correct. The color for the upper dot was sampled with the paint brush tool's inbuilt color picker by pressing ALT: the color chosen is already brighter than it actually is and is then brightened once more. 
  22. howdy :) is this a 'feature' or a #bug? with more than one photograph open, & i select & try to edit the selected image with let's say text, the edit does not occur on the selected document instead a non-selected document becomes selected & the one which is suppose to take the edit deselects. this behaviour forces affinity to not be able to work with multiple images opened at one time. is this a feature or a bug? to reiterate, with multiple photographs open, a selected photograph never takes an adjustment, instead an unselected photo (document window under selection) becomes selected to take the edit. (an unselected photograph — not the intended one — becomes selected.) any ideas? thank you in advance macos 10.13.x affinity photo 1.8.3
  23. Hi, what I want to achieve is to remove all three palettes ("colors", "grays" and "gradients") from all three apps and create a new one which will contain only global colors. I could remove all of them only in Designer. In Photo and Publisher I was able to remove only "gradients" palette. Why? Now, back to Designer. I created a new application palette and renamed it to "global colors". I chose "add global color" from burger menu, created the color, clicked on "add" and Designer created a new palette named "document" and put the global color there, instead in mine "global colors". Why? Also, the button "add the current color to palette as a global color" is active only with "document" palette, not with mine "global colors". Why? Please, name the colors with their color values "C5 M5 Y0, K0), not with "Global color 1" or such.
  24. Hi, I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed that text styles are added into "paragraph" and "character" palettes. Maybe they were there from the beggining, but I noticed them recently. So, it would be very kind of you if you add a way to manage them within these palettes it would be one palette (text styles) less to occupy our precious working space. You can join "color" and "swatches" palettes, too.
