  1. I'm a recent user of Affinity Photo and I'd like to submit and place in my vote for an automatic knife or slicing tool. Basically, I'd like an ability for an inverse panoramic stitching. For example, in Photoshop, I can use the Knife Tool for the following working example: 2160 x 1350 Pixels Using PS's Knife tool, I can right-click and slice up the image into (2) pieces of equal 1080 x 1350 images. Finally, using PS's "Save for Web," I can automatically export this onto my Desktop and upload to my Instagram to create the seamless panoramic diptych. In Affinity Photo, I have to manually slice and position. Please see the screenshot. With some simple math for perfect alignment and drag/drop. It's doable, but takes some effort and manual work. In an imaginative working scenario, I'd like AP an option to automatically create slices. In the screenshot, example, remember that my image is already sized 2160 x 1350 pixels for seamless panorama on Instagram's album post. I would simply enter 1 row and 2 columns for the automatic slicing to take effect. These slices are perfect and equi-sized 1080 x 1350. When uploading on Instagram's album post—as an example—I'm able to create a perfect, seamless diptych panorama. I do believe that this request for automation is practical tool and usage scenario. This automation is essentially and inverse of the AP's panoramic function. Starting with a image sized at X by Y dimensions and breaking or slicing into equi-sized P rows and Q columns. Another Usage Example: Instagram Giant Squares or Instagram Grid Art Let's suppose that I want to create an Instagram grid art comprising of 12 tiles at 3 squares horizontal and 4 squares vertical, e.g. [4 3] matrix. Each Instagram square will be 1080 x 1080 pixels. Therefore, the starting image has to be 3240 x 4320. You can imagine that the current slicing tool in AP will require work (and time). Manually creating 1080 x 1080 slices and using drag/drop for alignment or using the transform with some simple math for perfect alignment of the slices. Thank you for considering my feature request.
