  1. Input please: As a photographer I’ve been using Lightroom on my (now outdated) iPad for years, and used my wife’s Macbook Pro when I needed features, not available on my iPad (photoshop). I don’t really like Lightroom, I’m intrigued by Affinity Photo, and I need new hardware - so here’s my dilemma: Is there any difference in performance/possibilities/features/flexibility using Affinity Photo on an iPad Pro, or an iMac? Because that might decide my hardware choice (I really like my iPad cuz I travel a LOT, but the output and flexibility is far more important). I hope this makes sense! Thanks in advance for any help!
  2. I have a line drawing on 20 x 26 page in Affinity Designer, saved as a .pdf. I need to have it print out as tiled image on multiple letter size paper. I'm only able to print the upper left corner of the document... How to get the remaining parts of the drawing?
  3. I had to force quit AP 1.7 for not responding. It just would not load. When I hit Command + Tab the AP icon was shown with Finder. BUT in the dock, I had no indication that AP 1.7 was even running. Once I rebooted, I had no problems it fired right up. Mid2010 iMac High Sierra 10.13.6
  4. Hello, my system: iMac, Intel Core i7, 3,1 GH, RAM: 16 GB camera: brand new Fuji X-T30 affinity photo 1.6.7 all assistant options inactive on start raw engine: serif labs It takes about 20 seconds to open a file. My Canon raw files are ready in 2 seconds... Any ideas or updates in the pipeline? Thx!
  5. I was using the iMac enlarging and exporting my work to desktop. it worked fantastic for weeks and suddenly it no longer works. go through the same process and now nothing on the desktop. i enjoy exploring the Affinity Photo application. have been using it for over a month now. this is the second time asking for help. i am not very techno-savvy. but it is a puzzle that my jpg worked well and then nothing. 16"X20" portraits, 24X36 artwork and others. thank everyone who comments, in advance. thank you so much. your service is greatly appreciated. i would like too one day return the favor. where to start? my images are too large to transfer. they are for printing. thank you for your time & consideration. ali black
  6. Hey Affinity, we have huge problems on an office iMac with Affinity Designer. The program closes automatically at different points. 2,7 GHz Intel Core i5 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3 Nvidia GForce GT 640M 512 MB Maybe the Mac is too old for Affinity Designer? Crash Report is attached. Thank you Andreas Crash-Report-2019-04-07
  7. Hi there, I am absolutely new here and hopefully you are not bored hearing my concerns. My wife‘s got a Macbook Pro 13“, 8GB, SSD, i5, early 2015 and workes with latest version of affinity. When loading more than 7 RAW files, nothing goes on and system hangs up. Due to the fact, that this MacBook is proberly not one of the most perfomance, she bouht an iMac Retina 5K, 27“, i5 3,5GHz, 8GB RAM an 1TB Fusion Drive, late 2017. First perception: Loading pics in RAW is about twice as fast as the MacBook when loading between 1 and 6 pics (5 pics: 20seconds vs 40 seconds). But the disappointment follows immediately: When loading more than 6 pics (i.e. 10 or 14), than the iMac also hangs up. That seems to be the same on MacBook and iMac. So, what is going on? Do we need more RAM, i.e additional 32GB? Need your advice !! I don‘t think, that a much more performance machine would help, i.e i7 am 64GB mit 1TB SSD. That would be the most performance iMac. To pre-answer your questions, why she needs so many pics parallel at the same time: she wants to use it as a picture browser to choose, which of the pics is worth to work on. I think, there must be another way to do so. Is there a picture browser embedded to affinity? So, hope to hear from you soon. Thanks in advance. Stefan
  8. Hallo guten Tag, ich habe mir gerade Affinity Designer gekauft und meinen Schlüsselcode auf meinem iMac eingegeben. Kann ich nun das Programm auch auf meinem MacBook verwenden, da mich die App auf dem MacBook nach den selben Schlüsselcode fragt.
  9. Hi after importing a PDF document is still only the beach ball. iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017) Processor 4,2 Ghz Intel Core i7 RAM 16 GB Graphicboard Radeon Pro 850 8192 MB on a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017) Processor 3,1 GHz Intel Core i7 RAM 16 GB Radeon Pro 560 4096 MB is the same procedure no Problem. analyse-afpub.zip
  10. Hello, I am fairly new to Affinity Photo ( I have always used Adobe) and have a query before buying - can I download on to my Imac, MacBook and Ipad - with one licence? thanks for your help in advance, Irene
  11. Does anyone have—or know of a site that has—any benchmarks of how Affinity products perform on the new iMac Pro, vs a standard 5K iMac? Startup, filters, the usual suspects are good benchmarks, though I'm very curious about RAW file handling time, as well. Throwing 42.5 megapixel RAW files at anything takes time, and although an iMac Pro may be a bit of a lavish expense, if all these numbers are significantly better than on a 5K iMac, it very well may be worth the upgrade. So long is spent watching progress bars instead of editing. Thanks for any and all help!
  12. Hi, just downloaded photo 1.6.7 on imac 10.13.3 retina 5k, 27 inch late 2015 3.3Ghz intel core i5, 8 GB Radeon R9 2GB Checked with activity monitor and nothing of significance is going, affinity takes all all % CPU. But something must be wrong, or not? I carefully looked at all feedback on line before buying this app but it is completely unusable at this speed. Apple Photos, Adobe Photoshop when started separately work well and fast. Much appreciate some help! Was so much looking forward to this software... )-: thanks Arnim
  13. Hey. My plugins (Nik) disappeared after updating to the later Affinity Photo. I'm on iMac. I've tried going into preferences - Photoshop Plugins but obverting I've tried doesn't work. I have no idea what I'm doing lol! Any help would be appreciated thanks :-)
  14. Hi, I have just tried Affinity Photo and am quite impressed, it seems much easier than photoshop. My question is: do I need multiple purchases or will one purchase of Affinity do all my devices? Regards JJPKB

  16. The Lensfun lens corrections don't work on my system. I run Affinity Photo (AP) 1.6.6 on an iMac running Sierra 10.12.6 (can't upgrade to the latest OS as my printer network drivers don't like the latest OS). My camera is a Panasonic DMC-G1 with a Lumix G Vario 14-45mm F3.5-5.6 lens amongst others and this data is correctly recognised in the EXIF data shown in AP. I have tried loading the file with and without lens correction assistant options enabled with no effect. I have had this problem with all earlier versions of AP and Mac OS on the same computer. Lack of lens correction on AP is pretty much the only reason I still use other imaging software, so how do I correct the problem?
  17. Can I add Designer to second computer without paying twice. I installed on IMac but would also like to use on my Mac Book Air.
  18. Hi how does affinity photo perform while editing raw files using a 2017 Imac I5 8GB Memory Imac? I head photoshop and lightroom is very slow, I just wondered if anybody used affinity with this spec mac? Darren
  19. I Have a iMac 27" and I use both windows and Mac (Yes) My question is the affinity Designer and Affinity Photo is better on MacOS or Windows. I'm a graphics design student so I just have enough money to buy one for my study and my work in the future. Thanks for all advice

    Huge Performance Issues

    Hello fellow affinity designers, I recently noticed some performance issues with Affinity Designer. Started with 1.5 update. Runs very smoothly on my 2012 Macbook Pro (13" 1280*800, 8Gb Ram, 2.9GHz Core i7, Intel 4000 1536Mb) Runs laggy and with load times on my 2015 iMac (27" 5K retina, 32Gb Ram, 4GHz Core i7, AMD Radeon R9 4096Mb) Both computers run macOs Sierra 10.12.1 Examples about the performance issues: When I move a shape or some text around, even in an empty document, it's like if my "FPS" dropped. The elements/objets don't move smoothly anymore, they kind of jump around like if my computer was having a hard time. This also happens when I edit a gradient with the gradient tool for example Many other scenarios. To summ it up, my better computer (by far) is having a way harder time (by far) running AD 1.5. I'd really appreciate some solutions/explanations about this issue. It has a big impact on my workflow. C~
  21. Since really exploring Affinity products, I decided it's time I put my MacBook Pro aside and get something that AD and APh can really take advantage of the core features of the latest hardware. What would be your model choice, screen size, most helpful peripherals/accessories? Of course budget has to come into it, but I am more interested in the right equipment to get work out without being extravagant and wasteful. Thanks for your replies. Michael
  22. Opening .nef files on my iMac brings up a pink/white/black bar on the base of a landscape image and at the side for a portrait image; see attached image. Trying to develop the image does not remove the bar which has, in effect, overwritten the base of the image. Viewing the .nef image as icons or in coverflow in Finder shows an uncorrupted image without a bar, but using the column display shows a black bar instead of the pink/white/black. Nikon's View NX2 shows uncorrupted images. Capture NX-D shows pink/white/black corrupted images but only after uncorrupted images are first shown; the pink/white/black bar is added afterwards. So, uncorrupted images are available on the hard disk, and these can be viewed in Finder and View NX2, but AP fails to use them. To complicate things further, only .nef files from dates in December have this problem, but not .nef files prior to December (I only have 3 days of shots to go on). Is this an update issue? Any ideas as to what might be causing this problem, and how to make AP use the uncorrupted images that are resident on the drive? Thanks for any help you can provide. I am running AP 1.5 and iOS Sierra 10.12.2
  23. My new iMac has the following system: Model Name: iMac Model Identifier: iMac17,1 Processor Name: Intel Core i5 Processor Speed: 3.2 GHz Number of Processors: 1 Total Number of Cores: 4 L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB L3 Cache: 6 MB Memory: 8 GB Will Affinity Photo install OK?
  24. Don’t know if anyone has brought that up already but I just saw that on a page presenting the iMac, Apple is using an image featuring Affinity Designer (second image down). Good on you, Serif. :)
  25. Hi, I'm using the latest version of Affinity Designer from the Mac App Store (1.4.3) on a brand new iMac 27" with a retina display using OSX Sierra, and I'm having trouble with the bounding boxes around selected objects. Sometimes they show, sometimes they flicker on/off, and sometimes they're invisible. I'm not changing any settings such as accidentally turning them on or off, so I wondered if this was a bug with Sierra/Retina display? Anyone else having this issue? It's making it quite difficult to use the app. Cheers Michael
