  1. Hello Team ! i believe Affinity Publisher would do better job and be even competitive if you had a possibility to do OCR or Characters recognition on loaded PDF or scanned documents. in fact Publisher should be pair correctly with scanners and have Pro level scan functionalities to allow more Pro to converge or convert to it. There is a capture software called snagit who does that job so why not Publisher ? Hope this helps ! Blessings.
  2. I would really like to see a video about dealing with images from high res (3200 dpi) scanning. I have been scanning old negs. on an epson V550 photo bedtop scanner, for archival purposes, but obviously I would like to bring out the full potential if them and display/print some of them. They are in TIFF format- do I just deal with them as if they were regular JPGs? What about the high chromatic noise found in some of them? Or maybe I should be basically scanning them differently? I am using the built in Epson software that does a very good job of reverting the neg. colours to positive, but should I switch off the built in Unsharp mask? Glad to hear of anyone with experience with this type of project.
  3. Affinity has explained why it does not offer inbuilt scanner support (lack of 64-bit drivers). I have been looking at other software to see if it will support scanners. I have PS CS5 which used to work until I re-installed Windows 10 on a SSD. It now tells me it cannot find any WIA hardware, although it does detect my Slide Scanner software (Silverfast). I have been trying Corel Products. I have an old Corel PhotoPaint X7 which I have managed to re-activate after my re-install. I have also been trying Corel PaintShop Pro 2019 32-bit. These both seem to work on the principle that they look for TWAIN drivers (rather than WIA). They both find that I have VueScan and activate that. VueScan loads and will scan from my flatbed scanner (Canon MP630). However, it will not load into the graphics software. If I save the image from VueScan, it will load into Affinity Photo. This approach seems to be a possibility for Affinity Photo. Could File > Import it be set to detect any available scanner and activate it; then, when the scanner has done, and the image saved, it will automatically load into Affinity Photo? John
  4. I'm new to Affinity so I may be missing something. I thought I could just use Aquire Image and scan a document into Affinity Photo, (a bit like photoshop) but what I am getting on screen seems like a triple image overlapped in black and white instead of colour. Can anyone help please? See below scanned image compared with actual.
  5. Hi, I'm a relative newb to Affinity Photo but have some photo editing experience with Photoshop & others. The issue I'm having is with scanning an image at the highest resolution for editing in AP. I have a Brother Ds-720D and am using NAPS2 as the scanner software on a Windows 10 machine. I am scanning at 1200 DPI. Scanned images when viewed in NAPS2 when zoomed to the extreme (1000%) show almost no sign of pixelation. When I try to export in any photo image format - png, jpeg or tiff - the output file is quite pixelated. Viewing the file properties of the exported file shows it's reduced the image to 200DPI. From what I can see I've set the NAPS2 preferences for the highest quality output. So ... I tried exporting as PDF and the output file when viewed using Adobe Reader with extreme zoom (1000%) looks identical to the image as viewed in NAPS2. Ok, so now I seem to be getting somewhere ... However, when I try to open the PDF in Affinity Photo the maximum DPI I can select for the import is 400. If I go with that setting the imported PDF is significantly better than the tiff import but is still quite a bit more pixelated than viewing the PDF in Adobe Reader. [example below with the AP import on top with the Adobe Reader view below] BTW, I've set the View Quality setting in AP to Bilinear (Best Quality), so that is not the issue. Is there any way to import my PDF at 120DPI? If not, can anyone suggest a better way to get the highest quality scan into AP? The image is a crusty old, low-quality set of four snaps from a photo booth (yeah, a real one) from when my wife & I first started dating over 20 years ago. We'd like to crop the four images, clean them up somewhat and blow up prints from them. I realise they'll always look like low-quality photos and I'm happy to roll with those artefacts. What I want to try to avoid is adding additional processing artefacts. Hope you can help. Cheers, Stew
  6. I used to be able to scan from my Brother MFC-8480DN to my iMac in Photo with no problems, but now it seems to result in an odd, disjointed scan of the object different from what was showing on the overview scan dialog (see screenshots below). Any idea why this is happening now with this 1.5.2 version of Photo or is it just this particular scanner?

    Acquire Image

    I am scanning a lot of photos, and then using Affinity Photo to post process where required. I tried scanning with my Canon scanner and the Acquire Image command under the File menu item. It worked for the first photo, but failed to scan on subsequent photos. Only by shutting Photo down and booting up again could I continue. Please advise on anything I might be doing wrong!
  8. I am new to Affinity Photo and would like to know the best way to reduce moire' patterns in scanned images of printed materials (I.E. greeting cards). I have searched for some tutorials using Affinity and have some idea regarding an approach but am hoping for some suggestions.
  9. Hi all, Affinity does not detect my Epson V700 scanner. I'm new to Affinity and I'm curious if anyone else has experienced the same, or have any idea why Affinity doesn't detect my scanner? Cheers Peter
  10. Request scanning resolution be increased from the current maximum of 600dpi. This is the only feature that keeps me from migrating fully from Photoshop. My current scanner can scan pictures well above 9600dpi, but AF maximum scan resolution is only 600dpi. Smaller prints need to be scanned at a higher resolution to work effectively with them. Thanks for your consideration. Kind Regards, Danny J. McNeal

    SCAN

    Please add a scan facility - either TWAIN or WIA.
  12. Ha everyone, I'am trying Affinity Photo. Really a great program. I have the following question: i 'am trying to correct de lines who are visible on a scanned drawing (it is one drawing, scanned in three parts). In other words: you see two lines, because of a difference in color on the up and down side of the scanned part. You can see it on the picture (attachment) I was wondering, is there an easy way to correct/smoothen these 'scan-lines'? Hope to here something! Thank you, greets Onno Kestens ---------------------- Ha allen, Iemand bekend met Affinity Photo? Ik heb de volgende vraag: ik ben bezig de lijnen van een ingescande tekening (bestaat uit drie delen) helemaal egaal te krijgen. Met andere woorden, nu zie je twee lijnen (doordat er kleurverschil zit aan de boven en onderkant van het gescand deel) dwars over de tekening. Ik vroeg mij af of er een makkelijke manier is om deze ‘scanlijnen’ te corrigeren. Iemand enig idee?/tips? Ben benieuwd! Groet Onno
  13. Hi, I just downloaded the trial version of Affinity Photo to determine if it can replace Photoshop Elements (for Mac) for my purposes. I am using a photo/slide scanner to digitize and fix faded family slides, negatives, and photos that were damaged in a flood. Does Affinity Photo handle 35mm slides and negatives as well as photos? If so, how do I do it; my scanner handles slides, negatives and photos. If not, is this a feature you may be adding in the future? Thank you for any help you can provide. Katya
  14. Hi there, Others have used Photoshop to restore faded text from old document scans, but hey---I've left PS for Affinity, so that doesn't help. :) Anyone know how to do this, or know where I can find step-by-step instructions? The documents I'm working with are carbon copies of typed pages, circa 1947, scanned in at 400dpi jpg (can rescan in another format, if needed). Hope someone out there can help; I'm resurrecting a couple hundred pages of my great-grandfather's daily typed journals (most of which are legible enough on their own, but a few that need some Affinity Photo magic and love). Thanks! Attached sample page:

    Scan

    I think someone asked this before but I can't find it. Will Designer have a function to allow to scan an image directly into the program/onto the canvas? Cheers loons & lassies, George
