  1. Hi all, I am very new to Affinity Designer and am currently viewing this tutorial: At 1:17 they create an eclipse then apply the Gaussian blur to 100%. It reduces the image down to literally that.. a blur. However, when I follow the exact same steps this is what I receive: SEE ATTACHED. I am doing the exact same steps that they take. Any help?!

  3. How do you change the User Interface font size in Affinity Photo (1.5.0.45) on Windows? According to the help file, the option should be in Edit > Preferences > User Interface > Font UI Size, but it appears to be missing?
  4. Hello! A picture probably says more than thousand words. Please have a look at the attached image. I'm trying to recreate this "polygon" look. I know how to create a gradient over several objects by selecting them at the same time. Is it possible to add these artifical "steps" over the gradient's colors? Similar to the orange-to-red gradient in the attached image. Or is it all done manually? If you know any other hints on how to create this or similar polygon looks, I'd be happy to know them as well!
  5. After updating from version 1.5 Affinity Photo version 1.6.2-2 crashes all the time when starting the application. Any help? Thank you very much in advance Auggie Problemsignatur: Problemereignisname: APPCRASH Anwendungsname: Photo.exe Anwendungsversion: 1.6.2.97 Anwendungszeitstempel: 5a215885 Fehlermodulname: KERNELBASE.dll Fehlermodulversion: 6.1.7601.19160 Fehlermodulzeitstempel: 56bcd73c Ausnahmecode: e0434352 Ausnahmeoffset: 000000000000965d Betriebsystemversion: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1 Gebietsschema-ID: 1031 Zusatzinformation 1: 7ccb Zusatzinformation 2: 7ccb2fa98342573c8a26d5624a3b51e6 Zusatzinformation 3: 0b05 Zusatzinformation 4: 0b05713e90f4a26d8841a7c4429d9c73
  6. Sometimes the following annoying error occurs in Affinity for iPad: when I edit a scanned image (TIFF) sometimes the display of the image gets broken. Only a few parts of the image are shown then. Looks like only the edited parts of the image are shown. If you zoom in, the image will be displayed completely, but if I zoom back, it is broken again. An export of the image works without any problems. Closing and reopening affinity does not help. Attached you find two screenshots of the same image opened in Affinity in to different zoom levels, one broken, one ok. Does anybody else have this problem. Is there a solution for it? Best regards, Christian
  7. I want to import a picture from photos on ipad into Affinity to experiment with. Apart from getting a blank import screen nothing else happens when I press the import from photos button. I assumed it would sync with my photos app. I am not finding Affinity particularly intuitive. I would like to get started on my own project rather than just play with tutorials. When will A book for iPad be available? I have bought the tome that applies to Mac thinking it might be of some use with ipad. Workflow is signficantly different as not to be useful with ipad, unfortunately. Advice would be appreciated.
  8. Hi there I'm just buy Affinity Designer and downloading from Apple Store (I have Mac)... I wondering some questions..

Third... if I need to install again the software... how can I do it??? because in Mac it's making auto-install.. one more... Downloads & Product Keys in my Affinity account is empty..... Many thanks
  9. Hello everyone, so I bought Affinity Designer quite awhile ago (pretty much in the beta). I just randomly noticed, that apparently I no longer have any software licenses for Affinity Designer in the Mac App Store, where I originally purchased the software. (the is only the 'buy' option instead of 'open') That way I'm obviously no longer able to update my software. That by the way does not apply for Affinity Photo. I honestly don't really want to buy the software a second time for no reason so I would be very grateful for any help!
  10. Hi, I signed up for the affinity designer free trail yesterday and immediately started the download. It was very slow so I left it overnight. This morning the progress line had not moved and the expected remaining download time was a 3 days. Is this normal?? Im on a MacOs Sierra version 10.12.6 Thanks! Brooke
  11. Hello, With my Affinity Designer, the surface with the colors and layers is no longer visible. What do I have to do to make her watch again?
  12. On January 3 I purchased and downloaded Affinity Designer, and have used it a few times without a problem. But today Trend Micro blocked it. I unblocked it but it still will not start.
  13. Hi ye knowledgable! Hope this is the right forum. Trying to install Affinity on my recently updated windows 7. The email is correct but the installer won't swallow the copied code from your email. It is 4x4 characters. I wonder what's gone wrong...? Best regards! Per
  14. Hope I have posted in right place. I have used Serif Draw Plus for past 5 years and like it lots, however I also use ArtRage 4 with graphic pad and pondering about upgrading to 5 My questions for the Tech guys and experienced Serif users are as follows. How does the Affinity program compare with DrawPlus and is it compatible with ArtRage or good enough to stand alone as I like to produce artwork in oils on graphics tab with ArtRage and can obtain stroke patterns and some texture appearance. Do I need both Artrage and Affinity ? Thanks all
  15. Affinity Online Help Hello all, we're happy to be able to offer you an online version of the in-app help! Access Photo & Designer Help here: https://affinity.help Here are some of the additional features we're able to implement as a result of having proper browser support: Dynamic language switching: The help will determine your language and (if it's available) serve you a localised copy of the help. If you prefer to read in another language, however, you'll find a combo box at the bottom left which will enable you to change languages - and stay on the page you're currently reading. Print: Sounds simple, but with full browser support we can now implement printing of the topic pages. The print icon in the bottom left will give you a nicely formatted printout of the current topic. Share: Clicking the clipboard icon will copy the current topic's URL to your clipboard, which means you can easily point other people towards topics that may help them. Responsive: The help was responsive anyway, including off-canvas menu functionality so you could collapse the window and still read a topic, but this is taken further in this version of the help. The help is formatted nicely and usable even on a 4" iPhone SE screen. With this online version you'll be able to print out topics and view them on your tablets/phones, which are two of the most common requests when it comes to help feedback. This is currently no search functionality - we are aware it would be useful and are considering possible solutions. As always, if you have any feedback or find any issues with this online version, please let us know! Hope you find it useful.
  16. Is it possible to install or import the Affinity Photo styles that I downloaded from the Internet? I’m working on an iPad Pro, iOS 11. thanks, bkabstract
  17. Hi, I’m trying to use some macros that I’ve created in AP but when I launch them from library window, it won’t start until I click on the macro several times, but the problem is that then AP applies 2 or 3 times the macro. It doesnt matter if the background layer is selected or not. Also tried with beta of AP but same issue is still present. The only way to make macros work is right click, select “edit macro” and then play it from macro window. Then it works. No matter the complexity of the macro, all custom macros have the same issue. Finally I’ve noticed that free macros pack from Affinity, doesn’t habe that issue. I was wondering if it’s my fault while recording a macro, but after looking tutorials and reading a lot of information I can’t figure out why is it happening. Hope anyone knows a solution. Thanks! PS: Using with MacBook Pro 13” late 2011 and iMac 27” late 2011 with High Sierra installed.
  18. Hi there people! I finished the linert of my drawing, now I have to color it. Problem is...I need to color inside my flat color without the brush go out of it. In Photoshop, I used to put a new layer on top of the flat color and -> Create Clipping Mask Is there a way I can do that in Affinity Pro for iPad?
  19. This is not the first, second or third time that I'm in the middle of a design process and suddenly (apparently when dragging some layers) Affinity Designer Crashes. When I open it again, it displays the dialog asking me if I want to use a recovery file. If I choose yes, Affinity crashes again. When this happens, I get all my work lost, there's no way to recover it. This happens always that I'm using symbols (I'm not even nesting symbols inside symbols, because I know this just won't work in Designer) and constraints. If I create a structure where a symbol has constraints within it, and the symbol itself is inside another constraints group, you can be sure that suddenly Affinity Designer will crash. I'm so frustrated right now... File attached, for reference. Please, could anyone open it and check if it's ok in your machines? I'm using a Mac OS X 10.13.3 Beta (this used to happen before the beta too). New Inkscape - 06.afdesign
  20. Hey all, in addition to my shooting series, I also felt I should make available some of the macros I've recorded as far back as the Photo 1.5 betas and refined over time. I'll start with some workflow aids that may prove useful: Workflow Aids Download (ZIP archive) This set of macros for Affinity Photo provides a number of small workflow enhancements and shortcuts, including: Setting up frequency separation retouching (with two high pass layers) with non-destructive vibrance and tone controls. Masked local contrast filter layers for selective application. Creating a set of curves adjustments for each available blend mode. Setting up a non-destructive 50% grey dodge/burn layer. Edge mask creation using a laplacian operator. See the included Readme PDF for installation instructions and a detailed rundown of each macro. Tonal Effects Download (ZIP archive) This set of macros for Affinity Photo provides a series of tonal effects and enhancements including: Technicolor 3-strip and 2-strip emulations. LAB 50:50 channel mixing. Saturation/Desaturation curves. Warm and Cool Haze effects. Dissolve blend mode emulations (using noise & diffuse). Hope you find them useful - look out for more macros soon!
  21. (Split by Moderator from this source thread on Affinity Photo Video Tutorials) Am a Beginner Beginner, viewed the first tutorial Question: Before I begin any adjustments or editing of an image, am I to go to File., then Save As before I begin work on the image? It would be good if the guy did a re cap at the end of the tutorial, a "this is what I just told you" So, I am still not clear on even how to begin. Is this File, Save As, basically a duplicate that I can work on and the original is saved? Again, the developers in my opinion need to get over the assumption that we are at their level. I need a very basic one, two, three, and it seems each method of instruction is light on the Very Beginners area. Thx Stuart
  22. Hey Folks, this is my first attempt at using affinity designer. I really love drawing in vectors, all my works are 100% (pure) vector illustrations, and now I'm glad I found AD - an awesome tool … think we're getting married ;)
  23. Hello, I live in Bangladesh and I can not add a Payment Method to my Apple ID because my country isn't on their list. So, is there any way I can Buy License for Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo directly using my Debit Card? Thanks in Advance.
  24. Can we have a video editor/composer by Affinity as we already have one by Serif(& It has closed it's development)...!? :^)
  25. 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.
