  1. Just downloaded the Publisher Beta, but can't install. It says "Setup cannot proceed - supported windows version not found". This is strange because I am using Windows 10 Pro (64bit), has 4GB RAM, and has ample empty space in C drive. I also have Direct X version 12. So just wondering what could possibly go wrong? Does anyone has any idea? I have multiple designer files that I worked on before in another machine, but now can't use those in my current machine. Very frustrating! Please help.
  2. So, down the rabbit hole of color management for us! I'm on a Windows 10, 64-bit operating system with a run-of-the-mill Dell P2414H. I purchased a ColorMunki Display to calibrate my monitor. In the preferences of the program delivered with it, you have the choice of ICC profile version 2 or version 4. It defaults to version 4, but my Googling appears to suggest that version 4 may be problematic in numerous situations. However, I'm also having a hard time finding recent AND reliable info (ironically X-rite's own information is very dated). Of course, I'm most concerned about all this in Affinity Photo, so, first question: Do you advise ICC version 2 or 4? Can AP handle both of them (if that even comes into question), or is it better to use the older ICC version 2? And more largely (second question), is there anything specific that I need to do to make sure that AP is... correctly calling upon the monitor calibration information in the icm file? I'm asking because I also use RawTherapee for more "in-depth" raw development, and in that program, you have to indicate the monitor's color profile (point the program to the current monitor calibration icm file, so to speak). I don't see any such thing in Affinity Photo, although I do think Affinity Photo is completely "color managed"(?). So, I suppose there i a third implicite question: How does AP insert itself into the color management pipeline on any given computer? De excuse me if my terminology is off; I hope everything is understandable and thank you all in advance for your feedback!

  4. Hello! Thought I would share what I've been working on lately. I'm a fairly new user to Affinity Photo & Designer; my usual "go-to" is Sketchbook Pro, but the addition of Affinity has been awesome. I'm still learning the different brushes/ strokes/ and UI so it's taking me a bit to adjust. I'm quite a fan of the Metroid franchise and I love the artwork that's involved. Below is a freehand sketch of the "official" baby sheegoth creature, and I'm hoping to put my own spin on things when it comes time for colour. I've been alternating on my Surface Pro 4 & Wacom Cintiq, if anyone was curious to what I was using. Feel free to leave feedback; I'm always down for that :). Adrian
  5. The new Affinity designer for iPad looks and feels awesome. I would love to see a similar version of the Designer on Windows 10 which uses the full potential of the Windows 10 touch functionalities. A direct copy of the iPad UI could be awesome.
  6. Could someone tell me how to edit this photo or point me to a tutorial which would help me.Thanks for any help and advice.
  7. I am a registered user of Affinity Photo and Designer. I now have a second personal computer, a laptop, and I would like to install Photo on it, as a Windows App rather than execution of the usual .exe downloaded file. That's important to me because my laptop has a very small SSD where the OS is, but will install Apps on a much larger DATA HD. (On my desktop Windows doesn't see Photo or Designer as Windows Apps, but rather as installed programs. I'd like to change that situation too, but that's a later topic.) So.... Should I pay for the Windows App, then request a refund? Or is there somewhere else I can get the App install file, then later use my registration code to activate it? Thank you, Ray PS. Should have mentioned that Windows allows Apps to be installed on the DATA (D:) HD whereas Affinity Photo wants to be installed in on the OS (C:) in Program Files.
  8. I am running Affinity Photo 1.6.5.123 on Windows 10 Desktop. I am administrator and have no problem running the application. My partner who also uses the computer cannot access the app. The licence is confusing. Is it possible for her to access the app or is it restricted by the licence or ?? Thanks.
  9. Hello, I have seen many beautiful complicated works done by affinity designer and those were done on ipad or older versions of iMac and windows pc whose configurations are unknown to me. That gives an impression that designer is not very resource hogging. My question is how complicated is too much for my windows pc (G4560, 16Gigs, igpu, 250gig ssd)? I'm not quite asking the system requirement to run designer. I'm asking after what point my computer may start lagging? Like multiple layers or bigger canvas or too many raster brush - what will be the choking point of my pc? In that case, I'm thinking of doing small upgrade. What I can invest in? Thanks in advance.
  10. I have installed the latest version of the Affinity programs and now they are closing after it appears they have opened! I thought this should be posted in technical help but those subject areas are not open to me for some reason.
  11. So yes this has been a issue that has been going on for some time Idk if i just didn't notice or if its just my computer but the purview its like yeh looks the way i want but then export it then its significantly darker? If anybody has has something like this happen please help and if i need to ill go into more detail.
  12. I bought Affinity Designer for Windows 10 recently, and was wondering if I can use the product key to also use it on my mac. Can I?
  13. Hallo, I have included two screen shots, one is from windows 10 control panel the other windows 10 font disply, both showing the DAVID font, as I did install them. However one is greyed out while the other is availbale, this is a mystery in itself, but I assumed that affinity would show all my fonts in its program since the system has them. My ignorance regarding the disorganised scruffy windows system is due to the fact that I am apple mac person but unfortunately have been forced to work with 'this thing called microsoft'. I would appreciate your help. Thanking you in advance.
  14. Observed several times a 99% CPU load when opened a 32bit HDR image with 2 live filter layers (vignette and unsharp mask). Mouse pointer moves are very irregular during this problem. CPU load stays at 80-99% even after no more touching Affinity Photo again. After some tests, I remarked: behavior starts after live filters visible/unvisible switching when clicking yellow histogram triangle warning sign. behavior doesn't happen when no histogram visible in Studio behavior doesn't happen with 8bit files Hope this can be solved because sometimes a histogram can be usefull.
  15. I have loaded the trial version of Photo and seem to have a problem with soft proof. As a test I exported some images from Capture 1 as PSD files. In Photo I add ( at the top ) a soft proof adjustment layer, select the canson Photo Lustre Premium RC profile. I can turn the layer on and off and there is no perceptible difference. With Capture 1 and Photo running concurrently on the same machine, same graphics card and same monitor I can switch between the Capture 1 image and the Photo image. Without soft proof on in Capture 1, the Capture 1 image seems to be the same as the image in Photo irrespective of the soft proof setting in Photo. When I select soft proof in Capture 1, the image changes significantly, this does not happen in Photo. The printer is a Pixma Pro 100S. There is clearly something wrong somewhere. I could have made a mistake but the process seems simple. I get the impression that I have not got any printer ICC profile to work in soft proof. I have not tried printing but I will not try that until I get soft proof to work. I have about 1 day left on the trial and I suspect that I am going to run out of time
  16. Hi I hope someone can help me. I have a windows 10 desktop computer using wireless to a HP envoy printer. When I try to print from affinity programme I get the printer starting then as it prints a line it stops and rejects the paper as if it has been completed. I am fully updated with all the windows 10 upgrades. This used to print fine but for some reason has started to do this which is very frustrating. Any advice will be gratefully received. I do not have any printing problems on other programmes.
  17. I am a beginner to designing. I just wish to learn it as a hobby. Tried Inkscape but it's UI isn't great. Then I tried Affinity Designer and liked it immediately. I think I'd like to buy it after the trial ends. But I saw the same product on Microsoft Store. Sadly couldn't find a trial version for that. I like the idea of sandboxed apps for the ease of installation and updates. However, as I read on the forums - the store and desktop license aren't tied together. There aren't any reviews available for the Store app (not even on the store itself). I would have liked to know how the UWP version compares to desktop version; not just in terms functionality, but also bug fixes, customer/community support and how it handles Windows protocols. Has anybody used the UWP version and would like to share their review? Is there a chance I can get a refund if I don't like the UWP version (if yes how long is the refund window?).
  18. Hi I just purchased Affinity Designer and downloaded the installer file for 1.6.5. However whenI click to save it to downloads it's name automatically "affinity-designer-1.6.5.123.exe" not sure if any of that matters for my issue. Now my issue is that once the file is downloaded I can't get it to open to install. I double click and nothing happeneds. No windows pop up asking if I want to let this program make changes. I tired right clicking it and selecting run as administrator and a Windows notification pops up asking if I want to allow this program to make changes and I select yes and then nothing happens. I able to get other installers to open from other applications and this is the first I've had this issue. I've tired reconfiguring paths to no avail. Thank you for your time, - Ian Bray
  19. I purchased Affinity designer last year and had no problems with it. I am now having massive problems in so fact that I cannot print it only prints the top half the top line of any sentences and then throws the paper out as if it has completed. I am using windows 10 with all the upgrades. I have a HP envoy wireless printer. This problem is really frustrating me as I use it to print information on posters. Can you please help. Thanks Eryl.
  20. Purchased Affinity Photo (v. 1.5.2.69) and tried to install on my Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) laptop. Nothing happens. If I try to install with administrator rights, I do get a dialog box asking if I want to proceed to allow the application to make changes to the system. I click yes, but again nothing more happens. I've looked through the forums but was unable to locate a solution. To be sure, I've downloaded the application twice, and tried starting my computer, but same result. Any assistance would be appreciated.
  21. Here is a screen recording of the installation problems I'm having. https://www.useloom.com/share/027411c90093451e88365f2101a3a703 I'm not a PC expert, so if you provide actual solutions that will work, or suggestions to try, please reply with screen shots please that I can follow easily. I've already put in a refund request, hoping it can get fixed or refunded. But placed this here just in case if there are others who have experienced the same problem

    Yet another freeze topic

    Affinity photo is hanging, and I don't know what's causing it. I have had similar freezes happen in the last few weeks of using it too. Not many, but even just one every few days of use is enough to disrupt workflow. What I was doing: Merged down the attached file onto a single layer. Made visible only the merged down layer. Went into develop mode on the merged down layer, and started making adjustments (shadows and highlights, contrast, etc) Pressed the split view button so that I could compare the image before and after adjustments. AFFINITY HANGING! My setup: 64-bit Windows 10 8GB RAM Affinity Photo 1.6.4.104 So, interestingly, it's not showing as "not responding", but if I click on the Affinity Photo icon, it doesn't bring the window up, it just shows what was there before. Task manager lists affinity photo, and that it is consuming 2GB of RAM (RAM usage in total running at 70%), but not using any processing power. Attempting to close the application by right clicking on Affinity Photo and pressing close window doesn't seem to do anything. So instead I have closed the application by using "end task" in the task manager. After re-opening the file, and doing the process again, it proceeded without hanging. Nick at drawing board.afphoto
  23. Hi all . Would love the ability to sync program settings (Hotkeys, brushes , workspaces etc ) with my Microsoft account. If this isn't possible how about a single backup button which can be loaded onto another computer. Back when I was using photoshop & illustrator doing this was a real pain and hence never really got done would be great to see affinity make this process easy .
  24. When working on a affinity photo project, the .aphoto project file size keeps increasing even when I delete layers, convert document from RBG/16 to RGB/8. After my workflow from importing 16 megapixel RAW file as AdobeRGB in RGB/16, develop the image using Development Persona, doing some stuff in Photo persona using a second pixel layer, in the end flatten to one pixel layer and just adding two non pixel layers layers (soft proof adjustment and high pass filter), convert document to sRGB in RGB/8, leaves me a .aphoto file of 199 Mb (!!! not kidding). Save as reduces filesize to (a still ridiculous) 159 Mb. It is: (1) strange that "save" and "save as" the same .aphoto project leaves different filesizes (in casu 199 Mb vs 159 Mb), should be the same! (2) ridiculous that a affinity photo project containing just a 16 megapixel 8 bit RGB pixel layer and one adjustment layer and one filter layer has a file size that is more than three times the image size (16 Mega pixel times 3 bytes (8 bit colour per channel)) These ultra huge file sizes are a problem, please fix. I am using Affinity Photo 1.6.4.104 on Windows 10.
  25. I recently purchased Photo from the Windows Store and frankly there was one big disappointment: it has major useability problems in Tablet Mode (in my case on a Surface Book 1st Generation). Rightly or wrongly we have come to associate Store apps with Tablet Mode, so it comes as a bit of a shock to find one is just an old fashioned desktop app! On the Surface Book there is basically no ergonomic way of using the keyboard/touchpad at the same time as the Surface Pen and losing the latter is a huge bummer for a graphics app! After getting over the initial disappointment, I did reflect that a couple of relatively minor improvements would make it a lot more usable: 1. UI Scale settings. The app is much more touch friendly if the UI is set to 300% (rather than the recommended 200%). But this is global and wrecks other apps which are scaled properly in the first place. So what is needed is a UI scale setting within the app. On Windows 10, there should be two settings, one for Desktop mode and another for Tablet mode with automatic switching between the two. 2. On-Screen Modifier Icons. The keys that are used as pointer modifiers (shift, alt, ctrl) should have on-screen icons to make up for not having a physical keyboard. These could usefully be ranged at the bottom of the toolbar convenient to the left hand with the pen held in the right.I suggest these work in two ways: either touch and hold them like a virtual keyboard key; or, on machines were touch and pen are distinguishable, it should also be possible to touch the icon with the pen and then the shift state would be toggled until the pen is tapped elsewhere on the screen.
