  1. Hi Using Gradients, or shadow effects dramatically increases the exported SVG file size. Do anyone have any tips/tricks for how to use gradients in a way that does not affect the file size? This is important for use on webdesign etc. By example, a file was 4kb, without gradient. Introducing 1 gradient and 1 shadow effect resulted in a 60kb SVG file. Anders
  2. I've got not that big of a file (16 megapixels, 8-bit and a couple of raster layers) that after saving shockingly took 700 mb of my disk space. I copied all of it's contents in a fresh document with the same dimensions, saved it again and BAM! - 100mb. What causes this colossal difference in file size when the content is 100% the same? I've noticed this is a persistent problem with Affinity Photo. When I finish with a project, I always have to transfer all the contents in a new document before saving otherwise I'd have clogged up my disk by now. Any way to avoid this or is this a bug?
  3. Hi there! I got an e-mail pushing for version 1.8. So I checked with the friend who recommended Affinity Proto in the first place. He told me to abstain from upgrading. Why? I am on 1.7.3 and have a love/hate relationship. I really like the RAW handling and the final results. What really bugs me is the slowness. Waiting for simple adjustments to show is irksome. The step frpom RAW to Develop can take minutes. And the .affinity files are gigantic with little benefit for me. Affinity Photo needs no new features. (Except for a polygonal lasso tool. ) It needs a workover to get a lot faster. You succeded with RAW, carry on! And it needs better means to crop permantently and so reduce file size. And it needs a means to flatten and save reasonably sized files in Affinity format. Fix that and you will win the world! Remember the OSX Snow Leopard? It was launched with the motto "NO NEW FEATURES" and was a huge success for Apple. (I am on an "old" Imac that works very well with Photoshop CS 6. My friend has the latest Imac and feel the same as I do, except for more love, less hate.)
  4. Hello Affinity, I'm trying a workflow with presets for my images. In Affinity Photo (Photo persona) I edit one image to taste with adjustments, then export it as jpg. Then I want to save the adjustments layers as afphoto file, but with the actual image deleted. So only the (grouped) adjustmentlayers are in the file. But still the filesize of it is the same as with the actual image included, why is that? It should be only a few kilobytes I would think? In my case I'm editing a bunch of 16-bit PNG's, all about 600MB in size. The afphoto file if saved WITH image, about 800MB, is the same as when I delete the actual PNG but save only the adjustments. How can I only save the adjustments? kind regards, Frank
  5. Hey there, I've already in a couple of forum threads about the file size behaviour of Affinity Photo. Unfortunately things still don't quite add up for me. I've got a 10MB NEF RAW file. I've reduced to RGB/8, history is turned off and I also used "Save As" trying to trigger the file streamlining. Still the Affinity Photo file is 112MB. What am I missing? cheers, Torsten
  6. This is a follow-up to the previous bug report (with attachments) titled "Batch Process Fails with version 1.7.0.367" submitted on 7 June and updated that the same problem occurs under version 1.7.1.404. Today, I tried to run a batch process against 21 files that ran one macro which simply created a copy of the background layer and then renamed the new layer. Again, as with the two macro problem, it processed two files and then quit without an error. It was at that time that I discovered another error in that the .afphoto file created by the batch process is more than twice as large as the file that I created by dragging the same .tiff file processed by the batch process into Affinity Photo, running the macro to create a new layer and rename it, and then manually saved the file. The file size of the .afphoto file created by the batch process was 359mb the size of the afphoto file created by manually taking these steps was 159mb. There is something wrong in the batch process. If you need a copy of the macro I use or the files that were created I can upload them. Further, I would say that I have been running these macros for a long time under previous versions without any problem. Thank you.
  7. I have created a new document with four text boxes, one rectangle, and seven placed JPEGs across two artboards. Each of the placed images was no larger than 2 MB (maximum total of 2*7=14 MB). However, the surprising thing is that my .afdesign file is 141 MB. I have turned off "Save thumbnails with documents" and "Save history with document." Is there any way to reduce this, or is this an Affinity Designer bug? 141 MB is prohibitively large for the simple document. I have noticed that rasterizing each image in place @300ppi resolves this, reducing the file to 7 MB. However, I lose the ability to scale those images for print within the same document in the future. I'm guessing that Affinity is storing the bytes on disk as an uncompressed GPU textures. If that's the case, I would prefer to embed my original JPEG in the Affinity file even at the cost of reduced performance when opening the document. I'm using Affinity Designer v1.6.5.135 on Windows. I can provide the sample document if needed, but this should be easy to reproduce with any images
  8. I have made a sample document in Publisher containing only 1 page with 1 rectangle. Then I imported a multipage-pdf with 29MB (which shows only page one...) and an afdesign-file of 21MB (also multipage, and only page one shows...) In the Resource Manager, I changed both imported files to LINKED to save filespace. when I save, my file is 100MB! So doing the maths: 21+29=50MB embedded size plus 100k for the rectangle and fileheader, if you will. 1mb+1mb for filepaths and preview + 100k for rectangle and fileheader = 2,1MB Why is it 100MB?!?
  9. My co worker produced an AI file for a 3mtr x3mtr poster and sent it to me as a pdf, The size was 50mb. I made some edits but when I exported the file back as pdf, the size was less than 6mb so clearly something is missing. In face I can see that there are some deficiencies in my output. Can I export the file back in the approximate size it was first sent in? Thanks
  10. With the extortion experts Adobe screwing users of Creative (Accounting) Cloud with its revised pricing 20 to 50 percent, never has there been a greater need for a competitive alternative. Affinity comes nearest but shows no enthusiasm for closing the gap. When will it address the problems around plugins on Mac, or support Photoshop Actions, or have a file organiser, or make headway into reducing its gigantic file sizes? Solve these and you could have the world beating a path to your doorstep.
  11. Hello everyone, I've got a quite big file (many small objects: Spritesheets). Until yesterday everything worked fine. I multiply some sprites to tint them or make some adjustments via the adjustments symbol in the bottom of the layers palette. Since yesterday it just stopped working: If I click on a layer (vector) or group and then click "adjustments / HSL " - the window pops out. But the changes / settings I am making are not visible. They are not visible if I wait for some time. I tried to restart affinity designer / my machine - nothing works. A video showing the issue is attached. I use the latest Affinity Designer version on Mac 10.12. - I am thankful for any solutions. kind regards, Sam < edit > sorry - hopefully shows up this time: < /edit > adjustmentsAffinityDesignerNotWorking.mov
  12. Hi there, I have a problem with Affinity Designer.app concerning the file-size of svg-exports. When I just export a simple elipse the filesize is very small, but as soon as I add a ring to the elipse and adjust the border a bit, suddenly the exported svg turns way bigger (>100kb) because every pointer within that ring is exported instead of the figure… The same figure in Illustrator exports just fine. This seems to happen as soon as I switch the border-style from outer to inner… Is this a problem with the settings or with the svg-export-module of Affinity Designer.app? I attached the two files, same Figure, different border-style -> very different Export size as SVG Kind regards Hubi svg export bug.zip
  13. It would be very nice if empty layers could be deleted through a command or automaticly on save / exit? Helps creating order in the creative chaos and should be better for filesize too right? :)
