  1. Hi guys Can please someone tell me how can I edit "smart object mockup" in AF? Like in this video for PS https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxTge8fHbW8 All mockup's that I have are made for Photoshop so they are using smart objects to place our designs so after I open mockup and try to edit them by opening that layer in new tab like I did in Photoshop nothing happens! I simply can not find way to edit that layer in separate tab which is crucial for my work! This really makes things a very hard for me because I use mockup's all a time and I can't just use "place image" option and add more layers that I will adjust on spot, because it make things a lot harder then to just edit "smart object" like I did in PS. If you could show me how can I do this in AF, that would be a life saver! Thanks
  2. How can I transform an embedded document (e.g. change perspective) without it being rasterized? I saw a video from several years ago that seemed to suggest it was possible to use embedded documents similarly to smart objects, but when I try to change the perspective of a placed image, it gets rasterized and is no longer editable. ? Thanks.
  3. Hello, I wanted to make an action, in that I need one text layer (entered by the user), and hit play (the action). This has to first convert it into smart object (Not available in AP) make it's different copies re-position them according to the shape apply different effects change colors as needed Distort them without converting them into "pixel" layers (Not available in AP) make one scaleable smart object now the user realises the spelling are wrong.. He only edits one text layer That will update all the text (Not available in AP) Current actions even't doesn't support assets, even if those are made during macro recording. Current actions doesn't allow me to change colors Current available distortion converts text into pixels and no return.. Thank you
  4. Hi guys! I hope everyone has a wonderful day) I needed to embed several external files into my Designer project. It should be attached to the project, but I should be able to edit the files independently of Designer. In other words, it is reflected in the Designer project. Abstract example: I have several * .afdesign files with logos And there are also several * .afdesign projects that use these logos. I need a mechanic in which I can embed logo in all projects, then edit or simply replace the file with the logo in Finder, and returning to Designer projects to find out that the logo in it is also wonderfully updated (even if it requires restarting the program) Tell me please, is there such an opportunity? If not, is it planned in the foreseeable future?
  5. Here is a quick look at using mockups within Affinity Photo and Designer. Slightly different from using PS, but still possible and a great way to display your's or a clients work. Allan https://youtu.be/aOKsS9HqsEk
  6. Hi - love affinity softeware :) i realise that the smart object issue is a biggy and lots of work is needed Was about to commit to your software when i realised it was rasterizing all the smart objects. Its the only thing that is really stopping me from using it Is importing photoshop smart objects going to be a 2018 thing? Can you give any time frame?
  7. Hi there, I have isolated a head shot image from it's background and now would like to place a brick wall background image behind it. The problem is that I need to transform/distort the brick wall image to impart some perspective. When I go to Filter > Distort > Perspective, my imported image is rasterized and cropped to the size of viewport. This makes it impossible to for me adjust the brick wall background as any movement of it will reveal whatever is beneath it. How can I apply Perspective filter non-destructively? without cropping? If this were Photoshop I would resort to converting my brick wall image to a 'smart object'
  8. Hey Affinity, I've been using both Designer & Photo since its beta and I really enjoy it. I have gained nothing but enjoyment and happiness using your software and the progress you make. My only concern about Photo is the lack of smart objects. I understand there's a few posts from last year that mention them, but I'm not sure where this feature sits on your list of things to do as I couldn't see it on either of the roadmaps. It's basically the only thing I need Photoshop for at this point. Ability to read .PSD with Smart Objects instead of flattening the file into a pixel layer. Smart Objects This would be amazing, and I know that I'm not the only person that use mockups with this feature. I tend to make my own, but sometimes it's more suitable to use an existing one, which is made using Photoshop. I understand you aren't Adobe, so I'm unsure what you can and can't do, so even if the feature works in it's own way, I would be overjoyed. Keep up the good work Affinity, Cheers, Lachlan
  9. Dear Affinity Team, are there any plans to create layers as smart objects for plugins, e.g. to enable to use these plugins as live filters (like smart filters)? Thanks and keep on the great work! Indigo
  10. Hello, Affinity Photo already offers tons of great stuff, enough for me to switch to it from Photoshop. What I'm missing (or just couldn't find a way) are smart Layers. With that I mean a layer, which content I can edit in separate window, save it and the changes of the layer will be shown in the original files. I'm looking forward to what Affinity team will brings us in the future :)
  11. Hi. Please make in 1.5 Photo and Designer better modifications. First of all ability to place Linked, not only embedded document, converting selected layers to embedded/linked document. After applying Perspective tool to embedded document it becomes just pixel layer, make it keeping smart object like in Photoshop after applying any modifications. Add ability to make independent copy on embedded document, not only instance. Converting between Linked/Embedded. Look how it works in Photoshop, all modifications on Smart Object are just adding like smart filters or smart modifiers. It is very important to have this features! Thank you.

    Simple Letterhead Mockup

    Hey guys, I just recently found out about the live perspective filter – how could I miss this important filter?! :o This filter is awesome! It’s similar to my beloved Smart Objects from Photoshop, if not better considering in combination with other live filters like DOF! So I thought why not share my first »just-replace-and-you’re-ready-to-go« file. :D In case you want to try – here’s the download. A nice and simple DIN letterhead mockup to demonstrate how cool this filter works, maybe it saves you time somehow. ;) You may need to further adjust it to your liking. Have a nice day Dennis
  13. Hi, Added artboards was a great idea. Now I am looking forward to creating Smart Object like it is in PS. You can add a file and change it to Smart Object. In example it allows you to edit only this element from whole art. It would be great to work with Smart Objects created in Photoshop already. It is the only reason I still work in PS at least I have already bought Affinity Designer. Great job so far. Regards Maciej
  14. Affinity Designer rasterizes smart objects placed into PSD files from Ilustrator/other vector editor, so these objects are no longer vector ones.
  15. Hi, I'm trying to replace Photoshop with Affinity Photo, but I'm kind of stuck in my process right now. I've read smart objects are on the roadmap, but I'm trying to figure out if I can just use the current feature allowing to embed an image. So let's say I want to make a basic compositing with two pictures in the same file. I have "placed" my two picture A and B, on the left and the right side, and grouped them. Now I have duplicated that group, switched A and B to get B on the left and A on the right. I there any means to have A replaced in both group if I "replace image" ?
