  1. Hello everyone! I'm new to the Affinity scene and love it so far. I've been a Lightroom user for years and decided that it's time to put the presets and sliders aside for a while and really take control of my editing. Enter Affinity. The purpose of this thread is to discuss workflows used when editing multiple photos from a photoshoot. I can't seem to figure out a truly effective way to edit 50+ photos without creating a mess. Any pointers, videos, web articles, or books are welcome. Thank you all for the support and I look forward to reading your responses.
  2. A very plain wish: When the focus is on the "Pages" panes ... it would feel natural to me to scroll through the pages with the cursor keys ... but by the looks of it there is absolutely no way to use keys to proceed to the next or previous page. Even enabling the "End" and "Pos1" key would be nice. Maybe this functionality could even be active if the the main window is active, you have the "Move" tool selected and there is no frame selected ?! Aside that I find it very hard to recognize what is the currently active page. This thin frame marking it is hardly visible - even harder, when the content of various pages is layoutwise pretty similar. So it always takes this extra-extra effort to find out on what page you are on in the page panel. Cheers, Timo
  3. I LOVE this editor, and I still can't believe I picked it up for 25 bucks! It's a very powerful piece of software and I'm overall very satisfied. The one issue I have is, I struggle to organize my photos when using this Application. Viewing photos with just the windows file manager because I shoot in RAW + JPEG, and the Windows photos app does not offer easy access to tools like histograms or exif data. I could just open the file in affinity one by one, but clicking through hundreds of photos and having to exit out of each of them every time would be far too slow. I could also use other programs like Lightroom or some other raw viewer but having it all in one piece of software would greatly increase my workflow, as well as not costing 20 bucks a month. Is it possible to make a raw catalogue persona or something similar? You'd scroll through your photos and clicking on them, you could easily see all of the tools you would in the develop persona, including things like over and underexposed areas. The only difference is, you wouldn't be able to edit the photos until you choose one to take into the actual develop persona. Also, affinity would automatically hide the JPEGs, but attach them to the RAW file equivalent if copying is needed for stacking, panoramas, etc... (of course you could change it to not attach the JPEG, or show JPEGs along with the RAW files, or other options). I don't know if many people would care for this but I really wanted to throw this out there because I think that's the only thing that really holds this astounding application back.
  4. Is there a modifier key, preference that can be changed, or something else to bring placed files (or files dragged in from the Finder) centered? It's a fairly small thing, but anytime I bring a file into an existing file, it's off-center because I don't click or drag quite the the middle. I can't think of any circumstance where I'd prefer my placed and drag-imported images not to be centered in Photo—my initial clicks and drags aren't going to be precise enough for that to save me time positioning later in the rare cases where things I'm bringing in won't be centered.
  5. As many contributors requested, I´m missing a very important shortcut: hitting ESC to release the texttool and have the movetool Its not only to move the box, its because I I must often select a few objects after typing, or to change colors of objects and so on. That is why it is a hindrance that the tool does not switch to the move-tool. Its very easy to locate the ESC-Button and hit it (twice). Its not so easy to search "v" and hit it without an acident. Its a most-requested feature, so please have a look at it (some examples, more in the forum). Thank you!
  6. A couple days ago I asked about the value of pdfTool in a Quark forum. One comment was unexpected in that they pointed out that the tool is especially good for adding to a Publisher workflow in that it hasn't been around as long and may need a little more help than mature products like Quark and InDesign. That one perspective alone almost justified it's $500+ price tag. I wanted to know have other people found that those two products work really well together? Publisher is the only tool in the suite I haven't explored extremely in depth and I haven't even installed pdfToolbox yet. I like how Serif keeps the price low which allows for workflows like installing it on non-designers computers as I mentioned a couple days ago. Since the work in my company needs to pass by me the more expensive product (pdfToolbox) only needs to be installed on my machine. At first I didn't understand the very low pricing that Serif was doing but now it makes sense. I have even grown to like the name in that it may confuse some Microsoft Publisher users to accidentally start using Serif Publisher.
  7. Howdy! I currently use Photoshop at work to create web ad sets and I'm wondering if my Photoshop workflow exists in some approximation in Affinity Photo or Designer (My main issue with Photoshop at the moment is the ad sets I create end up being very large files which makes Photoshop crawl). Photoshop Ad set process - Create new document with 1080x1080 artboard - Place linked .PSD image into document (this keeps the overall doc size down as opposed to embedding images allows me to edit the linked image at any time with said edits being made to every single artboard that contains that linked image) - After adding desired text, shapes, etc. I will then name my artboard something like Ad-V1-1080x1080.jpg10 (appending the .jpg10 will allow me to use the "generate assets" function in PS which makes saving out images very easy). - I'll then duplicate the artboard so I can make an ad variant with different copy or imagery layout. At the end of the process I may end up with 30 artboards with differing dimensions for various social platforms (1080x1080, 1200x628, 1024x512, etc) At the end of the process I'll go to File> Generate> Image Assets and PS will save all of my individual artboards as jpegs and place them into a single asset folder. Questions - It looks like Affinity Photo doesn't have artboards so I'm guessing I'll need to primarily work in Affinity Designer for this process but is there a "linked" function so that I can place an Affinity Photo doc into Designer? Would this function allow me to edit the original photo file in Affinity Photo still and would those edits are saved would they be reflected in all of my artboards within Affinity Designer? - Is there any automated process like PS generate assets? This really just allows me to skip multiple export windows and when I save my doc only new changes to artboards will be rendered to the assets folder meaning I don't have to re-render every single artboard...only the ones that I've made new edits to. - If this process (or something close to it) doesn't exist does anyone have any ad creation workflow suggestions or tutorials that I could check out? The Affinity programs are so much faster and I would love to spend more time in them as opposed to ole Photoshop. Thank you for taking a look at this!
  8. Being a long time Photoshop user, I am trying hard to switch over to Affinity Photo and I have purchased a copy for both Mac and Windows to be able to work cross platform. Although I am trying hard to replace Photoshop, I am constantly running into workflow problems that makes simple tasks much more complicated than they need to be. I'm working as a professional in the games and animation business and workflow is key to effeciency. Some of my points have been raised multiple times in the forums, but looking at the upcoming 1.9 release, the developers or management seems more focused on fancy features than core day-to-day improvements that will make a huge difference. But I wish for Affinity Photo to become a serious competitor to Photoshop, and it's getting close! Just not close enough. Crop Tool Add the ability to transform the crop towards the center and maintain proportions similar to how you transform layer (cmd to center, shift to not keep proportions) Snapping to layers, again like layers usually behave Delete outside pixels - when working with large images with multiple layers, it can be a performance saver to remove pixels outside the canvas Rasterise layers Rasterise all selected layers in one go, right now you need to select individual layers one by one, right click and choose "Rasterise..." Filters/Adjustment layers Destructive filter variant of all adjustment layers. Currently, to modify colours permanently requires that you first create an adjustment layer, drag it onto the layer (which is tricky to hit right), do your adjustments and finally click the merge button in the panel. This should only be a matter of clicking the filter, do your adjustment and be done. This is more common than you might think. Not everything needs to be non-destructive. Bug fix: Selecting the bottom layer and any other number of layers, clicking the checkmark to show or hide it, clears the selection on the bottom layer - it should keep the bottom layer selected Brushes View thumbnails instead of strokes only Right click (or other quick way) to bring up the brushes panel when using the brush, eraser or similar tool. I don't need it floating around all the time taking up space to paint. Folders for organising brushes And why not a search/filter bar while you're at it Gradient Tool Remember my last colours instead of defaulting to gray and white every time I use the tool Presets to quickly re-use gradient (e.g. I frequently use a black-white gradient) Selections Transform selections (also highly requested in the forums). The ability to move, rotate and scale my current selection outline is crucial for a lot of precision work. The odd thing is, I can scale my selection by punching in numbers in the Transform panel, now just let me do with my cursor instead. Colours Option to remember colours between documents. Remember my last used colours when creating a new document instead of defaulting to black and white. Resize Document/Canvas Remember my settings like DPI, resample mode, anchor point, units, etc. UI Panels Allow panels to collapse to a smaller icon (like you see in Photoshop and many other applications). It is super useful for keeping many panels easily accessible while not taking up screen real estate. Right click on panel to bring up context menu to close the panel. Merging Layers Merge selected layers regardless of their type. If I select non-rasterised layers like texts or images, I am unable to merge the selected layers down to a rasterised layer. Combined with the ineffecient way of rasterising layers, this becomes a very tedious task. Colour Picker/Flood Fill The colour picker itself is fine, but... Why can't I Option-click to colour pick using the flood fill tool, like I can with the brush tool? Saving When doing an export to PNG, for example, a nice progress bar shows up. However, if I do "Save" on a PNG that I opened and edited, I just have to wait until I think it is done, with no indication of progress. When saving out 8k images, this can be frustrating. Merge group. Right now I need to create an empty layer below a group to be able to merge the contents of the group down to a single layer. This was a long list of "complaints", but I think the main issues for me in using Affinity Photo is not what it cannot do, but more how it is done. You obviously have a very nice selection of adjustments that work really well. You have all the necessary tools and good brushes for painting, and performance is generally good, though it could be improved a bit when painting with the brush tool. So for the price it is a very good application, but I find it hard to seriously recommend to other professionals because of these workflow issues - and I really wish I could ditch Adobe and recommend Affinity to everyone I know So please focus on the day-to-day use and less on new fancy features. Keep up the good work!
  9. Hi there. Just found out that you are restricted in terms of file location on iPad. Is there a logical reason why Designer and Photo do not support locations like Google Drive? Why is a proper exchange / sync workflow only allowed within the Apple ecosystem? Even iOS now lets you use Chrome as your default browser
  10. Is there currently a way to select a bunch of layers/objects and collect them all into a new layer with all of those selected layers/objects nested inside or underneath the new layer? I very often find that I want to organize projects as they get unwieldily and if I could select a bunch of layers, right click or hit a button/menu that could move all of those selections into a new folder for easy naming that would be so handy. Does this ability exist now and I haven't found it? Cheers.
  11. This is a very good Capture One Pro to Affinity Photo Roundtrip tutorial by Thomas Fitzgerald... Enjoy ...
  12. Affinity Projects move between Desktop and iPad. Fonts must move easier than today. This would be the easiest way to get used fonts to iPad: ☑️ Embed Fonts in Affinity file. 👈 feature request I would like to see fonts embedded in affinity files to seamlessly continue a project on the iPad that was started on a Mac or PC.
  13. An accessibility improvement such as a hotkey for the "Protect Alpha" option would cause a great improvement in digital painting workflow as this option is used many times throughout the process of a single digital painting in most techniques. In Photoshop it is possible to assign a hotkey for this as far as I know. In AP the only way to do this is by clicking the button that hides in a dropdown menu (shown on the attached pic) when using Affinity on a laptop (which has smaller screen than desktop monitors - on a big desktop monitor the option is normally showing in the same toolbar). There should also be the option to customize the tools in the said context toolbar. When it comes to the brush context toolbar, the customization option would allow me to hide the "Symmetry" and "Mirror" tools since I hardly ever use them and make space on the screen for the "Protect Alpha" tool that I use all the time. I've seen someone on the Affinity Photo forum raise tha case of "Protect Alpha" hiding in a dropdown menu. I believe that the customizable context toolbar would help not only digital painters often needing to toggle "Protect Alpha", but also users across variety of disciplines to improve their workflow in Affinity software.
  14. I'm designing a one-off magazine for a holiday gift project. I purchased a layout template from Creative Market, and the 50-page .idml file imported perfectly. Now I have questions about "What next?" By way of background, when Publisher was in beta I self-published a book, and was an occasional (3x/yr) InDesign user, so I can get around and get work done. But I feel like my questions are so basic I'm not even sure how to ask for help. I EXPECTED the workflow to be something like: Purchased .idml files are imported as master pages. I add document pages or spreads, and select which master page to apply. I build up the magazine, spread by spread, adjusting, re-ordering, etc as I go. INSTEAD, the .idml file imported as pages, and I'm not sure what the workflow should be... I could just start dropping images into frames and flow text into boxes, but I don't necessarily want their specific sequence of spreads, or this number of spreads, etc. Of course I can re-order the spreads, and add new ones by duplicating existing spreads, but is this the right way to start? I thought, Well, I'll create a new document, and copy pages/spreads from this purchased layout to my new layout, but it doesn't appear that I can copy a page/spread, much less paste it into a different document. I could leave all the new (template) spreads in place, and "build" the magazine with new pages added at the end of the document, and near the completion of the project delete all the unused blank template spreads. I could just start hacking at this imported .idml file and if I delete a page/spread I later want just import the .idml file again and delete the other 49 pages I don't need. None of these seem like the way to go. What's the clean, normal way to design a document based on a purchased layout file? I want to use it as a starting point, a collection of pages, as if they're modular elements, that I can apply to my own spreads. I seem to have a conceptual gap about what the normal workflow should be. The question seems so entry-level it's embarrassing to ask!
  15. I'd love to see a separate Artboard tab that can control the position/size of Artboards instead of relying on the Transform tab. Coming from Illustrator, I think its a small quality of life update that could benefit many users.
  16. Hello Affinity Users Group - When making a panorama, is it better to start with raw files, or tiff files converted from raw? One of the reasons I ask is that, if you make a panorama from raw files, when you click Apply to get out of the panorama pseudo-persona, it kicks you out into the Photo persona, not the Develop persona, so you don't get the chance to even use the tools in the Develop persona. So it's not clear to me what has been done to the individual raw files, and if there was even any advantage to starting with raw files in the first place. On a related note --- if you open a raw file in the Develop persona and click Develop without making any adjustments, what specifically has been done to the raw file? Thank you.
  17. Hello Affinity User Group - I repeated the making of a panorama in Affinity Photo with the same image data but with two different image formats. The first time I started with raw files, and the second time with tiff files that were converted from raw to tiff using the Sony software "Imaging Edge." My camera is a Sony a6300. The panorama made from tiff files was noticeably brighter than the panorama made from raw files. Here are the questions that I have: 1. Why does this happen? 2. Is the histogram the only difference between the two panoramas? 3. Is one way better than the other; i.e., when making a panorama, is it better to start with raw images or tiff images?
  18. When trying to make a 4 photo collage, I wanted to find an easy way to feather the edges of the photos together, without having to start drawing shapes and be precise (to speed up workflow). I did find a work-around for it, though not very practical or speedy. But, in searching, I stumbled upon something that could be improved. When using the Live filter: vignette, the effect still applies to the whole document, even when the filter is linked to only one of the layers, as you can see in the screenshot. What are your thoughts? Have I maybe skipped a step somewhere? Also, does anyone know a good way to quickly feather edges of a layer? Only the edges I choose though. If I did not skip a step: I suggest, to improve workflow and practicallity: A dropdown menu when applying a Filter where you can choose between "Full document" or "Selected layers", so you can choose to have it logically affect only the layers/area you need. Using my own document as an example, to only vignet the top right object/layer. As an extra suggestion: the option to quickly select a layer, to convert it to a smart object that you can edit in its own document. Perhaps an extra option in the Layers menu and when Right Clicking a layer to "Edit in seperate document" Which will automatically convert the layer to a smart object, create a new seperate document and allow you to edit seperately with no extra steps in-between. Live editing of the seperate document, where the adjustments directly transfer to the main project, would be a nice added feature, so you don't need to constantly close and reopen the smart object. Though, I see how that could be more difficult to implement. I've already run into the issue several times that I need the ability to edit a smart object seperately and have read of several others that have too, so I do see a need here that could be filled, at least in a more practical/intuitive way.
  19. IT seems like even basic design rules - already established by Microsoft 25 years ago - seems to be trashed by serif development ... Let's have a look at the dialog "Refine Selection". One starts to change the parameter "Border Width" ... entering a new percentage. As one would expect now the TAB key or a mouse click will bring you to the next entry field ( as defined by MS App design guide) ... maybe with every other APP following the MS Design Guide but not Affinity. Of course AP pretends to switch to the next edit field "smooth" ... until you press the next number key (expecting to change the value for "smooth") ... suddenly the layer opacity changes to whatever number you typed. Brainy AP took the focus away from the entry field to "live" update the latest setting changes - without giving it back to the field. So keypad now defines the layer opacity instead of changing the edit field values. You manually have to click in the entry field (again!) to change the "smooth" value ... and you have to repeat this really annoying procedure with every setting within the dialog field. To trick users the edit box for values even pretends to be active ... but of course isn't. So you end up in a mouse clicking marathon to change 3 edit box values. Seeing that even after 4 years of development Affinity hasn't managed to save dialog box values and setting as set the last time used (REALLY??) you have to start this procedure over and over again with every selection that needs to be refined. To be very clear: I like the idea of life updates when you change parameters but don't sacrifice essential workflow behaviour for it! And regretfully this is only one small example for a screwed up workflow ... I'm really happy to support you improving your workflow. Just don't keep ignoring it as you did in the past ... Cheers, Timo BTW: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/design/
  20. HI, I'd like to better understand how to best implement an ACES workflow in Photo for 3D still EXR renders. My goal is to be able to work in the expanded colorspace that ACES provides for editing and be able to export my images for print (with an AdobeRGB profile) and web (sRGB). I'm currently using Octane as my render engine which at this time will only render to the sRGB primaries in linear EXR format. ACES is planned for the upcoming release however so I'd like clarification on 2 scenarios. If anyone has deeper insight into this I'd really appreciate the feedback. I watched the Affinity Photo OpenColorIO video (https://affinity.serif.com/en-gb/tutorials/photo/desktop/video/329071149), but trying to apply this process with ACES just added more confusion. @jamesritson this would be a great topic for another video! (also thanks for creating all of the tutorial videos, they're well done and very helpful!) Scenario 1: Converting a linear (sRGB) EXR render to ACEScg for editing and then exporting either an sRGB for screen or an AdobeRGB image for print As far as I understand it, there are three components to this process: Setting your color preferences OCIO config file to the ACES config (I'm using the latest 1.0.3) The 32-bit Preview panel Display Transform The OCIO Adjustment layers For the 32-bit Display Transform, what do I need to set it to in this scenario? With ICC it looks exactly as it did in my IPR in Octane. Following along with the video this would seem to be the right approach, but in the video he's using Filimc Blender which I behaves differently from ACES and I'm wondering in this case if this same approach (ICC display) works properly when converting and editing in ACES. With the 32-bit Preview OCIO Display Transform set to sRGB (view transform) and ACES (device transform) it looks darker and more green. (my screen is calibrated to sRGB), though the exposure adjustment behaves completely differently for OCIO / ACES and is much smoother as I would expect than when the DT is set to ICC. I'm assuming that the green tint is due to the fact that I hadn't added an OCIO adjustment layer. When I add an OCIO Adjustment as Source: lin_srgb, Destination: acescg the tone balances out, but the overall image is darker. I'm assuming that this is the look of the ACES transform on a linear sRGB image, but I'm not certain I'm setting this up correctly. For the OCIO Adjustment layers what would be the correct setup? From what I understand I need one OCIO layer to specify the input source type and destination type which I set as lin_srgb and acescg respectively. Then for the output I would create another OCIO layer and set it to the reverse?.. Source: acescg, Destination: lin_srgb? How would I export to AdobeRGB or another space like ROMM in this scenario? Scenario 2: Opening a linear EXR ACEScg render for editing and then exporting either an sRGB for screen or an AdobeRGB image for print I'm just future proofing here and bloating this post, but assuming that Octane updates this year with an ACEScg render option would I just append an 'acescg' siffix (my_render-acescg.exr) to the file and open it in Photo? Do I need to add an import transform OCIO layer to specify that it's ACEScg or do I just create an out transform layer? Finally 2 last questions: I'm assuming that all of my image adjustment edits will be done between the input transform OCIO layer and the output OCIO layer, please correct me if I'm wrong.. If I open a multi-layer EXR with multiple render passes, do I need to create an OCIO Adjustment layer for each pass layer or will one at the top be enough? Thanks for bearing with the 1000 questions here and I greatly appreciate any insight I can get on setting this all up correctly!
  21. Greetings, Affinity Photo is now my main photo editing software. I also like to use ON1 Photo RAW 2017 for some features, especially the PHOTO FILE MANAGEMENT system. ( or Digital Asset Management ) Whenever I tell ON1 Photo RAW 2017 to edit the image in affinity photo, it opens the image in affinity photo brilliantly. However, I am having trouble understanding what happens when I exit Affinity Photo to go back to ON1 Photo RAW 2017. How can I keep the original and the edited file on the same folder in a way that makes sense? Since ON1 Photo RAW 2017 doesn't recognize .afphoto format, it won't display it in the ON1 Photo RAW 2017 file browser/organizer. Is anyone here using this same combination? What is your workflow like when working from one of these apps to the other? Especially when keeping everything non-destructive. Cheers! William
  22. Hi. I'm using Affinity Designer for all my identity design and as I have a lot of iterations of artboards in every document, I always need to number manually each artboard which is very time consuming. It's even more complicated to update all those numbers when you delete/add artboards to that same document. An option for an automatic numbering would be awesome. I'm always ordering my layers so that my PDF export is correct, so if I wouldn't have to rename all the artboards, wow, would be great. N.
  23. I think the biggest issue I'm having with the Affinity Suite is workflow. I've seen a number of reviews and tutes on individual programs but not many of either on how to integrate them into your workflow. The integration between the three apps are their strongest feature at this point, but changing a decades long workflow from distinct programs that work together to what is essentially one program with three (mostly) separate modules is something else. In addition some of the in-house decisions as to what features are present or missing from each app is a source of frustration for me. Case in point: I'm creating single page document with a pixel image, some text and some vector based graphic elements. I started the graphic in Photo, works great. I love the way it handles text and vector elements. Then I wanted to add a stroke to the text. There's no Stroke panel. I can add an outline color to the text but I can't adjust it's width even though I can make those adjustments to a vector object. So I sent the file to Designer just to adjust the stroke. Yes I know I can add an Outline in the effect panel but I wanted an outline and a stroke. A technique I use a lot. Now I have two programs open just to adjust a stroke. Did I miss something? I like the update for PSD smart objects in Photo. I mostly use smart objects to add non destructive Topaz effects to an image though. I still can't do that in Photo. So I thought to myself "what if I linked the PSD file in Photo or Designer?" Then I can go back to Photoshop and adjust the effects if necessary without reimporting like they did in the olden days. But no, neither app supports linked files, only embedded or pixel images. So I sent the file to Publisher, linked the file, and opened it back up in Photo. It appears as a link file and now I have three programs open though the technique appears to work. Did I miss something? I like to make iterations of a layout so I can try different things and still be able to go back to where I was. I like Designer art boards for that. They act like objects that can accept effects, are easily resized and can be sliced and exported for different purposes. The art boards show up as expected in Photo but sending the file to Publisher results in both the boards being on a single page. Hmmn. Something to keep in mind. And let's not even get started on the lack of auto-hyphenation in Designer. I think I understand Serif's challenges with this suite. This modular software approach is unique, in the graphic design space at least, and they're trying to sell single apps while still keeping incentives to buy the other packages. I believe they could easily cram every feature from each program into one huge and complicated app if they chose to. I don't think anyone would want that. So they're picking and choosing which features to add or subtract from each program. I many times disagree with their choices but understand that they're blazing a new trail. Unfortunately I end up with all three apps open and they all look the same and it can get confusing as to which simple feature is in each app or present in Designer's pixel persona or present in Studio Link when using Publisher. I just had to shut it down and walk away for a moment. So I'll end where I started with a suggestion to Serif as well as tutorial creators to try and help us better understand a workflow where the apps can work together and for Serif itself to pay close attention to how artists want to work and their suggestions in that regard. Sorry for the long post. Peace.
  24. Todays: Workflow and WINDOWS (putting all my critics in one thread seems to overtax you - since 90% gets lost) - if you resize (zoom in/zoom out) the content of an undocked window can you please resize the window accordingly. (if the resulting content is smaller than the workspace of the screen, adapt the window accordingly, if the content is larger, maximize the window frame with scrollbars) - If you zoom a view too 100% the position of the content seems to be "random". Please instead center the content and resize the window accordingly! (I know you can do it since you do it with the "fit window" view as well) - having all windows floating a new document should start in floating mode as well - when selecting "float all" the content of all windows should be centered and not randomly put somewhere over the screen - (one is happy to find the content at all). Window size should be adapted to content. - One should be able to drag and drop a layer from one document into another document (not just with CTRL+c CTRL+v). Additionally: when trying to drag and drop the user gets the impression It would work based on the way the cursor changes when you drag a layer into another document - but in fact nothing happens. - ESC still does not cancel essential operation e.g. cropping Most of these bullet points have been mentioned many years ago even though they are absolutely crucial workflow topics. And we are not talking complicated additional features and rocket science - we are talking absolutely BASICS! You just simply ignore them. People that seriously try to work with the software are not of interest for you guys - what upsets me. I keep bringing them up every 6 month what seems to be a complete waste of time. I would roughly guess that AP takes up 30%-40% additional mouse-movements, keystrokes and actions to get to the same results as PS does JUST and purely due to your extremely poor workflow and handling issues. And we all know that time is money. Cheers, Timo
  25. Many printers/publishers provide downloadable PDF export settings in Acrobat’s joboptions format. My wish: make Publisher (or the whole suite, respectively) able to either import these, or export their own export settings file.
