  1. Whenever I go to export a photo to any file type it lets me save but then an error message pops up. Once the error message pops up the system crashes and shuts down. How can I get this to work? I haven’t been able to successfully save one photo to any other file type but Affinity.
  2. I have recently started using Affinty Designer and found that few basic features were missing which all the other professional Vector Editing Software have. Split Point ( This feature allows to break the point into Two separate points ) Minus/Plus or remove/add node ( Feature in Pen Tool to add or remove a node without limiting to shift to different tools ) Break Apart or Release Compound Path ( After Separating a shape with subtract front from back I need to be able to use both separations as different object rather than one single unit ) Create Clipping Mask or Power Clip option in Context Menu and Also Ctrl/Command + Drag object over other object for Quick Power Clipping(This feature is required for the reason of better efficiency ) Actions or Automation ( This Feature is in Illustrator which allows pre-recorded actions to take complex or rather bulk part of the work be smoother and FASTER ) Shape Builder Tool ( This Tool makes it easier for ratio base designing ) ( This is specifically required for professional designers ) Hovering Thumbnail along side the eyedropper tool with Color information (Eg : ) ( It is much need feature if you use it ) Convert to Curves should be included in Text Drop Down Menu. Change of units from right click on ruler ( This feature allows change of measuring unit from just by right clicking on the ruler ) Convert Object to Guidelines ( This Feature allows to Convert Object into Guide Shapes ) Object Locking option in Context Menu (much needed feature for Desktop and Mac user ) Color Numeric Value in swatches with the current color mode ( This feature is highly required one suggested by dadesign I.e.: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/77313-color-numeric-value-in-swatches/ don't know the person but really useful feature ) Thank You for Hearing,
  3. Hi, The title says it all. Please add your installation files to the Chocolatey package manager for Windows . So that I can further optimize and automate my software update processes. Affinity Photo and Designer are one of the last tools on my computer that need to be updated manually. Best regards
  4. Hello! Thought I would share what I've been working on lately. I'm a fairly new user to Affinity Photo & Designer; my usual "go-to" is Sketchbook Pro, but the addition of Affinity has been awesome. I'm still learning the different brushes/ strokes/ and UI so it's taking me a bit to adjust. I'm quite a fan of the Metroid franchise and I love the artwork that's involved. Below is a freehand sketch of the "official" baby sheegoth creature, and I'm hoping to put my own spin on things when it comes time for colour. I've been alternating on my Surface Pro 4 & Wacom Cintiq, if anyone was curious to what I was using. Feel free to leave feedback; I'm always down for that :). Adrian
  5. Trying to replicate the process (link) to blur (bokeh) an image background and use a mask to retain sharpness of foreground. Desktop version seems to work fine. Ipad version mask requires precise tracing of foreground vs the general masking (black) and having image show properly per the desktop version. How can the ipad version behave like desktop version? Using an Ipad Air2. Does Affinity Photo run differently on iPad Pro?
  6. Hello all, I'm trying to create a photo with a text overlay for print, however, the print person I'm working with says the files I'm sending over don't scale properly. I suppose that means that the text graphics are not vector. Is there a way to do this in Photo? It's just two words inside a rectangle border. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hello! I downloaded the Affinity Designer test version about 14 days ago. The test license expired a few days ago. Today I purchased the full version in the App Store. When I open the app it shows that my test version has expired and that I need to insert the product key to proceed. I didn't receive the product key because I bought the full version in the App store. What can I do? Thanks in advance.
  8. Hello. I couldn't find a direct answer to this. Is there a way to sculpt a pencil line in the desktop version of Affinity designer. I love using this feature on the iPad and find the Pencil tool basically useless to me without it. Thanks,
  9. I guess this has been requested before, but the fact that this very helpful tool is not yet in Affinity Designer, makes me feel envious of my workmates using Adobe Illustrator. I'm not talking about the graph, but the tool that gives you the capability to adjust the width of strokes at a selected point. Can you guys confirm if you are working on it, please? I would get very excited!
  10. I just purchased Affinity for the Mac with the understanding that it could export to PSD format.When I try to import then export PSDs, Affinity crashes repeatedly; it crashes when I simply click on the PSD tab icon in the "Export" dialog.This is a big problem for me.I'm on Affinity 1.6.11, and Mac OS 10.13.4 (High Sierra).Is a solution known at this point?Thanks, Q
  11. Hi, Just wondering if there is a way for me to share the AD assets that I've added to the app on my laptop so they also appear in the app on my desktop. I've added a load to the assets panel on my laptop, but when I opened the app on my desktop this morning, none of them were there. Guess it's because it's app based and not cloud based. Is that right? Is there a way of saving them and uploading from one to the other? Cheers, Cathie
  12. Any recommendations about high performance desktop, for best fluent and quality work with Affinity ? cpu, motherboard, graphic card, monitor, discs...etc., each separately, or a good, already integrated desktop. Thanks
  13. Hi - New to Affinity Photo here. Are there any differences in software capability for Affinity Photo on the desktop versus tablet versions? It looks like the short answer is “not really”, but I am having trouble confirming this. Thanks, Trxr
  14. I would like the ability to control opacity from within the pencil tool— like an rgba set up. I would also like to be able to set the tool as a multiply (or other) type to quickly layer shapes and colors. As of writing I’m not sure if this is possible without going into the layer menu to adjust opacity and layer types.
  15. I've just encountered what appears to be a pretty major compatibility bug between Affinity Photo for iPad and Affinity Photo for MacOS/Windows. I created an illustration on the iPad, and then sent the file to a collaborator on Windows. He said the file looked completely different from the comps I'd been sending, and when I loaded the file in Affinity Photo for MacOS, I saw what he was talking about: the way I had used alpha masks had completely changed. As best I can tell, the iPad version fades mask transparency against opaque, while the desktop versions fade against transparent!
  16. Hello all, I've been behavior I just can't explain. I've seen this on the iPad version and now on the desktop version. Example: I have two images I brought in as a stack, I did auto-align (tried with and without the live align).... I see the stack, I open it up and can see the individual layers, one on top of the other. The blend modes are all set to Normal. For some reason, the lower layers are bleeding through and showing through the topmost layer, even with no masking, etc.....and I'm at a loss to see why? I'm used to PS, where if you stack 2 layers, with nomal blend modes, the top one completely obscures the lower one, unless you mask it off, or have other blend modes enabled. I'm guessing something is set different in AP, I just don't know how to get the behavior I'm expecting. Right now, with both images there...I have them both turned on, again, expecting the top image to completely obscure the bottom one...but it looks strange, and if I turn off the lower layer...the top one becomes to look as it should be without the bottom one bleeding into it. The images I've tried on desktop are .tiff images....the ones on the Ipad that did the same strange thing, were from an iphone emailed to me. Can someone help me out here? I'm just wanting to stack 2 images, and not have the bottom one(s) show through unless I mask out the top later.... Thanks in advance, CC
  17. Hey everybody! When I use the frequency separation filter and deselect the High Frequency layer and only have the low frequency layer select my healing tools no longer work. I am not sure why; I am following tutorials but no matter what I do the tools will not work. They do however work if I choose to only have the high frequency layer selected. Thanks!
  18. What are the differences between the iPad and Desktop version of Affinity photo? I have the iPad one, but it was only $20 while the desktop version is $50. I feel like I could use the desktop for its more powerhouse ability for some things, but am not sure if there are any differences that make the desktop version is more worth it.
  19. Hi, I'm teaching myself how to use affinity designer and I'm still a novice. I don't do very complicated things on it. I have been trying to make a logo for a new business I'm working on and my simple graphic seems to have glitches and I'm not what's going on or what I'm doing wrong or how to fix it. It looks find with it's layers and zoomed out but when I zoom in it gets these little cut-outs. The layers are pretty much all just lines created with the pen tool. When I rasterize the image or try to export it as a png it does the same thing with the cut-outs. Also, when I zoom in more, the location of them change. This does not happen in other images that I have created. If I copy and paste it into a new document, it still has the cut-outs, as if they are part of the lines, but I don't understand why. Thank you for your help. I'm very lost and frustrated.

    I made a little desktop background for myself. Don't know why I chose a stoned caterpillar in a weed field , but I like him. His name is Julius
  21. I have the surface 3, but the Microsoft store won't allow me to download the affinity designer app, should I download the desktop version? On a similar note, I signed up for the free trial and tried downloading it but it is stuck in a loop. Once it downloads, it requests to be "Open" or "save". Open does nothing while save brings up the same prompts for another copy.
  22. Wouldn't it be less confusing is there was simply a new subfolder in this forum area, just for Desktop or Windows? I'm confused if I should post here or not: The instructions say go ahead by the name of the subfolder in contrary.
  23. I see content packs offered for the iPad version of AP, but are there any/many offered for the Windows version? If so, please point me to where I can find them. Thanks.
  24. Is there a trial version available for affinity designer for mac? Thanks.
  25. It would be useful to have floating panels - both in the desktop and iPad versions of AP - for some features. For example, the Scopes panels - and indeed regarding scopes would it not be helpful to also be able to see more than one scope at a time? If the panels could be individually floated, then it should be possible to do this, so that one could have, for example, an RGB parade and a Vectorscope visible or even a Curves and a Vectorscope simultaneously. The panels could be pinned to parts of the screen as the user wished. It is possible that this could become confusing however - as sometimes happens with GIMP if many tools are used. In the iPad version of AP it seems awkward to have only one tool "out" at any one time - and floating panels could overcome this.
