  1. Hello forum, Just purchased the product and overall it is excellent. That said, it is missing a genuinely needed option within cropping. This being the ability to lock/align the cropping tool to the center of the image so that when you click and drag from the left; the right also crops to the same amount, and like wise from top to bottom. Most importantly to me is the need to crop from a corner and for all other points to move the same amount (whilst being locked at the center) framing the image equally and effectively. I believe although do not fully remember that to do something similar in the overly priced competitor of affinity photo is by holding down alt (or maybe it was shift, but not both together) whilst cropping. For now i am manually center cropping by adding/taking away the x and y value to achive an equal border. Thanks
  2. My aim was to use photo to crop some photos to add into an email. I downloaded them to Photo, cropped them, clicked Apply, then did copy/paste into email, and all the cropping was lost. This surprised me! Any solution? thanks
  3. As I'm still unable to add screen shots to forum posts I have to do this as a link to an image on Google Drive. I hope it works. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aABcWxnxTHtgUFO7z6o-MmPuWg9LbsOK/view?usp=sharing That screen shot shows the aftermath of the following steps: With an image in the clipboard (a screen shot): 1. Draw a frame with the Picture Frame tool. 2. With the frame selected, right-click and select Paste as Content The screen shot now appears within the picture frame. But there's something missing. There should be a second outer handle at the lower-right of the frame. But there isn't. When that kind of additional handle is showing, moving the picture frame handles can crop the image, though moving the outer handle at the lower right will resize frame and image together without cropping. Have I omitted some required step? What became of that outer handle?
  4. When I crop an image, the image itself will be cropped, but the canvas remains still in the original size (see picture, blue frame of marking). When I now copy this cropped image to another Affinity Photo image or file it appears again in the original size - not in the cropped size. For me this looks like that cropping in Affinity Photo does not make a "physical" crop. How can I make a "real" physical crop? Should I always trim the image after cropping? I yes - what is the right way to trim? Can somebody tell me the best practice to crop an image physically? Thank you very much!
  5. Have you ever tried to arrange objects in the layers panel only to loose them, and then find it nestled in a collapsed group of objects? Ever try and move an object so it clips anther object and it ends up with an unexpected result? Ever wonder what those enigmatic icons in the layer thumbnails are trying to tell you? This guide is for anyone with those questions. From folks that are new to Affinity Products, to people who has been using it for years and struggled with the behaviour of layers. This 3-page visual how-to guide will hopefully help reveal any or all of the cryptic layer mysteries! The guide is in English for desktop versions of the products, designed the Windows version, tested mostly in Affinity Designer, but should translate well to Affinity Photo and Publisher. I would love to hear your feedback, if you notice any errors, have any additions, and/or let me know if it helps you, please chime in! NOTE: PDF DOWNLOAD AT THE BOTTOM. Please download it! Cheers, Dave Vector Affinity Layers Guide - Understanding Masks, Moves, Crops, Clips, Adjustments.pdf
  6. Hello, I'm not entirely sure if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong but I can't seem to figure it out. Sorry in case I'm just being a idiot here What is your operating system and version: Windows Version 1909 (Build 18363.720) What happened for you (and what you expected to happen): If I want to cut out a motive, like for example the astronaut in the picture, with a mask layer the background won't go away completely. Instead there is this weird grey there which I have to erase with the eraser tool. I expect to see straight to the layer below ( In this example it would be the default white background). Provide a recipe for creating the problem (step-by-step what you did).: 1. Take a picture with an object you want to cut out. 2. create a mask layer. 3. set brush to white. 4. go around the object. ( I used the fil tool afterwards to color the rest of the background white, it's the same if I use the brush for the rest). 5. You have the grey color that you have to remove through the eraser tool. Any unusual hardware (like tablets or external monitors or drives that may affect things) or relevant other applications like font managers or display managers.: I have a Laptop. I use the AOC Agon AG271QG as an external Display. The Logitech Hero G502 mouse. The Massdrop ALT Keyboard and a BlueYeti Microphone. For whatever reason that might be relevant. Did this same thing used to work and if so have you changed anything recently? (software or hardware) No on both questions. Thanks for reading! astronaut.afdesign
  7. On page 94 of the Affinity Photo Workbook it takes you through an aspect ratio example, but then tells you to enter the modes input of 16 and 6 respectively, This obviously can't be correct. It crops the image to near nothingness. On closer testing I found that what they mean is to click the Gear next to the mode to find the predetermined setting. It is not as the tell you to "use the two input fields next to Mode".
  8. I'm using Photo 1.6.4.104. I'm trying to add some additional cropping tool presets. I don't find the instructions in the help document useful.. It says Adjust the context toolbar settings. What does that a mean? It won't take decimal fractions in the boxes specifying dimensions which only take pixels. For instance, if I try to specify 3.33:1 it won't do it. It just changes it to 3 and 1. If I try to then select Add Preset mode it reverts to one of the presets already there. I can't make the instructions work. I would appreciate being directed to a better text or video tutorial or given a more detailed procedure.
  9. Each week I have to crop 200 photos to 1:1 size. These are a mix of portrait and landscape. The focal point is not in the same position in each image. So, I need to be able to change the crop area for each photo. To open, crop, save for each photo is slow and tedious. I'd much rather use batch that has a macro that automatically opens each photo, opens the cropping dialog, waits for me to set the crop area, then saves the photo. Is this possible with Affinity Photo? (Is it possible in Photoshop?_ Thanks
  10. In Photoshop I regularly use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to select an area of an image and then use Image -> Crop to crop to the selection. Is this possible in Affinity Designer?
  11. Recently I've been having trouble with the cropping tool in Designer. It was working very well before but now it's not working at all. I"ll open an image file that I need to crop, select the crop tool, go to the blue bar at the top-middle and try to drag down. But I no longer get the up-down arrow key and in the rare occasion that I do, it doesn't actually drag down. It also fails to drag from any corner or draw a new rectangle. In a possibly related issue, the middle mouse button pan no longer works. It doesn't even give me the grab hand. And, believe it or not, even using the spacebar will not allow a pan. It will show the hand but won't actually drag the view. I feel like there's something that needs to be purged. Preferences maybe? I'm running the latest version 1.7.3 on Windows 10 I've tried reinstalling. Nothing is working here. Any thoughts? Thank you David
  12. Hello again! Unless I'm missing this somewhere, but giving us the ability to crop the entire document and not just layers. Thanks!
  13. I have a picture in an Apple photo album that I cropped using the Apple edit software; I then tried to import it into Affinity for additional processing, but Affinity imported the original uncropped image even though the original no longer exists in the iPhoto album. I realize I can crop with Affinity, but I find Appleā€™s software easier to use. How can I get Affinity to import the cropped image?
  14. Hi Would it be possible for the crop tool to remember the last used crop ratio. I always use 'original ratio' and I have to keep reselecting that on every new photo. I see that you now have 'darken border' pre-selected and that is good. Thanks. Keep up the good work.
  15. I've been looking for the solution for this for while. If i have an image masked by a vector, how can i edit the vector without stretching the image? eg. in illustrator i'd use the node tool and it would only effect the frame, not the content
  16. I just noticed the clip feature which is a pretty neat function. I would like to make an unclipped version of the project I am working on and was wondering can I have both version in the same file? Do I make a duplicate of this file and have two separate files? When I make variations with Design and Publisher I do it within the same file.
  17. Even with the 1.5 updateI still cannot not crop to a specific size. In PS, if I set the crop for 8x10 and the crop mask stays 8x10 and saves as 8x10. Affinity seems to have made this very simple process very difficult, even with 10 years of PS experience, I can't seem to make sense of this dynamic crop tool that changes while you size. Seriously, is there a hidden tool to lock is at the preferred dimension. The tutorial seems to make it even more difficult. Again, I just want to set the crop tool at i.e., 8x10, and save it as 8x10 and the exported file comes out 8x10! No more!
  18. I seem to have misunderstood what 'sticky settings coming in 1.5' meant. My workflow: 1) I open a photo 2) I crop it to a custom preset [Mode -> scrolling down to one of my presets] 3) I switch from 'Overlay: Thirds grid' to 'Overlay: none' 4) I crop and export the photo What I expected to happen with 1.5 / sticky settings: 1) I open a photo 2) Mode is on the preset that I last used 3) Overlay is on 'none', because that's what I last used 4) I crop and export the photo What happens: I still have to change Mode: and Overlay: for every single photo I work on.
  19. It seems I am unable to delete crop presets in Affinity Photo 1.6.7. Clicking on 'Delete Preset' simply doesn't do anything... Is this something that other users have experienced and is there a known way around this bug?
  20. When I create guides in my photo to crop to, I notice they move after the crop. Because of that, I can't tell how accurate the crop was nor are the guides useful anymore. I would like to see the guides remain exactly where they were in relation to elements withing the photo. I would also appreciate if there was a "crop to selection" option.
  21. Some Groups Cropping borders like a mask Group crops - Bug 2.afdesign
  22. Hi I am not sure if this is a bug or feature request. In previous versions of Publisher when I placed a PDF that had crop marks and bleeds it imported as is. The last two versions when I place the document it comes into the page cropped. However, when you go to edit you still see everything. There are instances where those marks and/or bleeds may be required. Is this just a bug or will you be implementing placement options that would allow the user to determine how the external document will be placed?
  23. If you crop an image that has text runaround of a PSD image the text wrap around is lost even though Publisher thinks it's still there. Attached is a video that demonstrates this as well as the source image and page. Text wrap bug.mov Wasp leaving.psd Text wrap test.afpub
  24. I don't have time to search entire forums or the interwebs to see if someone else has ever suggested this feedback before. So I offer my apologies if my suggestions have already been covered. 1) Please can you provide a feedback function WITHIN the application it self. It's incredibly frustrating to have to use out dated methods of signing up to god-awful web-forums which just leads to nonconstructive replies of un-thought out opinions and arguments. It also allows you to correctly link feedback (and abuse) to the software license of the user and even categorise the feedback so you can easily see which areas are causing most concern to the user base. 2) Please can you fix the mouse icon when painting in masks in the develop mode. The standard OS mouse icon does not feel accurate to paint with. Also a nice to improve if possible: Painting often feels sluggish to see the red tint forming. If there is a way to make this feel more responsive without upgrading an existing 32GB RAM I7 processor machine, that would be lovely please. 3) Cropping in Develop mode is missing an "ok" or "finished" button. It's frustrating to be sitting back with my tablet, controlling everything then having reach over to the keyboard which I moved to one side, just to hit <enter>. I don't want to map the enter key to my tablet device as it's never used for anything else! if you simply put a button in the UI it will mean I can just move the mouse there and click! perhaps I've missed a trick that does what I want, but then that would mean it's not obvious and intuitive to the user. 4) Please update the flash function for uploading files on this forum. Who runs flash in 2017? Browsers auto block flash from running by default because it's nasty. 5) More of a question then a suggestion, but is there a way to rename the overlays in the Overlays tab in Develop mode? I have 3 gradient overlays, all with the same name! that's very confusing to simple minds like myself. 6) Although I generally hope you spend more time fine tuning what you have already developed, instead of just rushing out new features, it would be nice if there was an in-application function for browsing image files, with a nice big preview of the image and EXIF data, which you can then double click to open it in the develop mode. I don't think anyone wants all this "importing" and cataloguing rubbish which is very slow. But browsing files within Affinity with a UI that suits photographers that windows/macOS don't offer, would be a great win. Thanks for your time.
