  1. As Adobe has decided to make the import screen in Lightroom suitable for Instagram users, I have concerns wether Lightroom should be replaced in the future. Adobe makes this concerns even bigger by publishing buggy apps too early which ruin lives of professionals. Last year, Serif came out with this Affinity-suite and I have high hopes that they will release a Lightroom alternative. I am serious about that, since Capture One, well, does not work for me. But if you do, make sure that people can transfer 100k photos with any adjustments non-destructively. I don't know if you have plans for this, or if you have resources for this. But if you have, well, I would be the first to buy. Adobe is going for Instagram users with all their iOS-photoshop-mix-fix crap, which is not what professionals want. I know that one day, I will enjoy Affinity Designer on my iPad without compromises. And I hope you guys could rescue the professional photography business. I know this post has not the right spot in the forum, since everything is about Designer or Photo. But I just want to post this to see wether this could be the future of photography. Any name suggestions for a Lightroom alternative?
  2. I don't know if anyone else figured this out already but; When you try to export LUTS in Affinity Photo you export them, and when you put them back into Affinity they have the opposite colors. Well I figured that two opposites would look the same. I exported the LUT and then opened the LUT I just exported and exported the opened LUT as a second LUT. It turned out to have the exact same edits as the previous edit. I don't know if any of that made any sense but there you go. If it didn't make any sense you can watch my youtube video:
  3. For a competition against racism I made this poster and... I won. Thanks serif! Vorschlag Nr.4.5.pdf
  4. I noticed this error began last week. I did not need to use the program so I shrugged it off as some random error. But now I am noticing a lot of my Affinity files arent opening/loading. Instead after a long wait time, the attached message appears. It says that the file is open somewhere else which is not possible. I can't find anything related to this issue when I search the forums or Google. Was curious if anyone can assist me. Thanks again.
  5. Hello, I'm a Python programmer (mid) I saw that y'all are making a affinity for website, y'all has think in enter to the python community?
  6. I just bought the software today and it seems great. Problem is, within the 15 minutes I've used it it has crashed 4 times. I can draw a couple lines and then it becomes unresponsive. I've maxed out the performance preferences and reduced the amount of ctrl+z steps with no help. Also all my preference changes seem to reset when I restart the program? PC is Win10, 64-bit 12GB ram, Intel i7, NVidia GeForce GTX 970, using a Wacom tablet.
  7. 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 kernel (optionally with gaussian blurring). Channel separation to individual pixel layers. 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). Subtle Diffuse Glow using blend ranges. Infrared channel swapping. Hope you find them useful - look out for more macros soon!
  8. I’ve been working on a huge photo retouching project for a couple of weeks now, both on Affinity Photo for the iPad and for the Mac. The file is 5589×8510 (250MB+), and the iPad Pro 10.5 has been handling it pretty well, but sometimes the iOS app crashed after opening the project and attempting to zoom, pan or do anything. But that was not an issue, because I just saved the project, closed it on the app, then reopened it again and things usually worked again (zero crashes on the Mac app. btw). But today, I have a project that won’t open or save. Whenever I try to do one of those things, the operation is never completed and the app simply crashes. What’s worse, I tried to save the project to iCloud, and now I have a 0-bytes file where my project used to be (I do have a copy from last night elsewhere). I also tried to create a copy of the original project on Affinity Photo for the iPad, but the exact same thing happens when I try to open or save it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
  9. I’m working on a big project both on Affinity Photo for the Mac and the iPad, and the project file has very different sizes when saved on the iPad vs when saved on the Mac. In this particular case, the project takes up 500+ MB when saved on the Mac, and only ~370 MB when saved on the iPad. My my only guess is some compression is happening on the iPad (lossless, I hope). What is actually going on here?
  10. Expecting a web designing platform like lost "Serif WebPlus"(http://www.serif.com/webplus/) or something something better than it...so that we can design website creatively...!!! :^)
  11. Looking for a compatible drawing monitor to use with Affinity. It looks like the Wacom monitors are compatible, but I'm looking for something a little bit cheaper in price. Any suggestions?

  13. Produced my first action figure photo shoot So much easier than working with real people! Action figure was photographed by me on a miniature photo studio I built, and lit with speed lights fired remotely using radio triggers. The background is stock. All elements were composited in Affinity Photo on my 10.5" iPad Pro.
  14. Hi all, I would like to give my opinion on how I see the market. So considering Adobe does not have interest in the Linux market, you guys could at least take the opportunity and make a version of Affinity Photo for Linux, which would be a really nice alternative to Photoshop. I've tested and looked at a few Photoshop for Linux (mainly open source ones), but unfortunately none of them really stand that well. I've been using Photoshop since 2007 while I was in college, and I still use it at work, so it is really challenge to find out one to use at home that functionality wise, shortcuts, and everything fits to my pace. Best regards, Antonio Neto.
  15. 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
  16. I recently learned about the new upcoming image format called the High Efficiency Image File Format (or HEIF), which was mentioned in the Windows Blog (https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/03/16/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17123-for-fast/#OALyDY4AdhDIahYX.97). After looking into HEIF, I was wondering if Affinity was working on support for HEIF for Affinity Designer & Affinity Photo (or if support is already there). The initial impressions of HEIF look promising and might be an image format that can improve workflows. If you need details on HEIF, I've posted links below.

  17. I am a long-time Page Plus user although very much a beginner using it for personal projects which I really enjoy and find fulfil;;ing. I have purchased Affinity Photo & Designer but can't use the Affinity files on PagePlus which is the program I depend on the most...I primarily make cards for friends and family and have a website which I greatly desire to redesign. I see that Affinity Publisher is going to take a lot longer and since I need to use PagePlus my affinity software seems useless. Is there a solution to this? Also, can Affinity Designer be used to make a website? Thank you very much for any help someone can give me.
  18. Hi Affinity team, thank for creating these amazing products! I am completely new to the world of graphic design. Like many of us, I have a desktop a laptop and a tablet. I was wondering if I can use one licence that will be applicable for all the devices? This is all for home use. Look forward to hearing from you. Best, A
  19. Greetings, I'm having a bit of a problem. I'm trying to make my own assets. I followed the process of creating a new category and subcategory and normally it should allow you to drag and drop an item into the subcategory section but its not. Instead i have to right click on the lines on the right and click on add from selection to add them into the assets. I've seen on youtube that they're suppose to be a black shade under the sub category that lets you place it but it doesn't let me drop anything in the sub category side.
  20. Hi, I would love to purchase the affinity workbooks for my kindle. Will you ever make the books available on kindle? (If you do, please make them a bit cheaper as it's not a physical copy)
  21. Hi, Our company purchased licenses for Affinity Photo, and we'd like to be able to silently push out software using either Quest KACE or SCCM. Is it possible for us to do that for Affinity Photo? Regards,
  22. I've been using Affinity Photo and Designer since nearly their respective launch dates, and I continue to hold hight hopes for this company and it's products. I recently decided to begin a transition to an entirely mobile workflow, utilizing an iPad Pro 10.5, Affinity Photo, and any additional apps needed to do the work I wish to do. I'm almost a week into my new mobile journey, and I'm not only blown away by this setup, I have little desire to work on anything else. Can't wait to see how AF for iPad improves! If the app devs are reading this... ADD MASK REFINEMENT IN PHOTOS PERSONA, PLEASE! Anyway, here's a 6-image composite of my niece on her Jurassic Easter Egg Hunt.
  23. I'm not quite sure if I can explain this in a way that makes much sense so I'll let the screenshots do more of the talking; what I'm trying to do is use the "subtract" function to create and effect on the "Neon Dreams" piece similar to that of the other screenshot, with the transparent lines, I don't want to make it too complicated so I hope the screenshots help make everything make sense. I know what I have to do but it seems that I can't because I'm trying to subtract an existing compound? Am I doing something wrong here? Thanks. Dylan
  24. When Publisher is released, will it be a separate purchase? If I buy the Designer, can't I do some of the DTP?
  25. Hola, para el programa Designer hay algún plugin que se le pueda agregar que permita abrir archivos .skecht o .lunacy ..?
