  1. I bought Affinity 1.5 for Windows 7 and it absolutely refuses to resize an image (document) without re-sampling the size or resolution regardless of the little re-sample check box. I want to change resolution and size separate from each other! Any clues, that I'm missing something after dozens of try's or is this a bug. Such a basic thing renders the program useless to me. I've also noted other comments about cropping... I'd like to enter size and resolution into the cropping arms as well though that problem is not so immediate.
  2. Hi Affinity, loving my new software (Photo, Designer and Publisher) bought them all yesterday and looking good so far. There is one thing that I just can't seem to work out. I do work for a publishing company and it is important that they know the size of their images at print resolution (300ppi). Otherwise they use the pictures too large on their layouts and we can't make PDFs to send to the printer. So before any layout work is started we make sure that all the images are 300ppi. In Photoshop this was very easy. Image > Image Size > Document Size - change the resolution of the picture to 300ppi with 'Resample Image' unchecked. Photoshop then alters the physical size (width and height) of the picture so it still looks good at the new resolution. So for a picture that was 72ppi to start off with we end up with a smaller picture when the resolution is changed to 300ppi. I can't seem to get this to work in Affinity Photo. I have gone into Affinity Photo > Document > Resize Document. I have changed the DPI from 72 to 300 and unchecked 'Resample', but it is not making the image physically smaller. I have been playing around with this for ages and I am getting nowhere. Am I missing something? All I want is to be able to resize images to the size they need to be at 300dpi. Affinity Photo looks amazing, I am sure there must be a way to do something as simple as this? Thank you for any assistance.
  3. I'm unsure whether this is a bug or expected behaviour in v1.7 but it is a change from v1.6 so I'm raising it as a possible bug. I frequently copy and paste images from Affinity Photo to Affinity Designer. The images in Affinity Photo are always by default 144 dpi (because they are screen grabs from a Mac Retina Display). By default when I open the screen grab in AP the document defaults to pixels as its unit of measurement (which is fine). I then have an AD 'print' document set to 300 dpi and by default use mm for the units. In version 1.6 when I copied the AP file/layer and pasted it into my AD file, AD would 'honour' the pixel size of the AP file regardless of the difference in dpi between the two documents, so e.g. if the AP file/layer I'm copying is 2,000 x 2,000px, when pasted into my AD file it was pasted as 169.33 x 169.33mm, i.e. 2,000 x 2,000px, so no conversion took place to account for the difference between the different dpi settings between AP and AD. In version 1.7 this is not the case, taking the same scenario as above, AP document at 144dpi, default units set to pixels, AD document at 300dpi, default units set to mm. When copy/pasting between the two, the 144dpi file/layer pastes at 352.78 x 352.78mm which is 4,166.67 x 4,166.67px, i.e. it has resampled the pasted layer to honour the pixel resolution of the AD document (2,000px at 144dpi = 4,166.67px at 300dpi). However, if before pasting the AP file/layer I change my AD document from mm to px units, maintaining the 300dpi document resolution, when I paste the same 2,000 x 2,000px layer from AP, it is pasted into AD at 2,000 x 2,000px and not 4,166.67 x 4,166.67px which seems a little odd, so it is ignoring the difference between the two document resolutions. So my question is this, is this 'expected' behaviour in v1.7 or a 'bug', as in, shouldn't pasting the file/layer honour the conversion between the two different document pixel resolutions and adjust accordingly or should it paste at the same original size regardless of the difference between the AP and AD dpi's and document units which is the way it worked in v1.6, i.e. in v1.6 with the same set up as above, when I pasted the 2,000 x 2,000px file/layer from a 144dpi AP document with units set to pixels into a 300dpi AD document it pasted at 2,000 x 2,000px regardless of whether my AD document was set to mm or pixels.
  4. I'm just trying to understand the menus with my new Sony A7iii and imported a test photo into Affinity Photo 1.7. I notice I've got white banding on the left hand side of the image. Have I set up something wrong in Affinity at the importing stage or in the Camera set-up with file sizes? Any ideas please? Thanks in advance.
  5. Is there a way to not have Affinity change the image size when I open a raw or dng file? Tried several files and each time Affinity makes the image larger.
  6. Having watched the quick Vimeo tutorial I have to wonder how an image can be truly representative of the size, since although the software can determine your actual working system resolution, how can it know your screen ppi? Have I missed or misconstrued the point or is this a real matter?
  7. When I start and open a file, the opened image is fixed on the upper left side of a fictive background (s. example). But this background is not a layer, as you may see on the navigator. How may I remove this area. This cannot be done by resizing document/canvas/pixel art document. Maybe I changed a preference, but I need help to restore the program
  8. Hallo dear people from affinity, first i once again have to admit , that i love your program. s i allready have told you on my post for architectural workflows, i realy want your programm to suceed. And in many areas it is on a good way.. Now i´ve taken a deeper look on viewportspeed. on my computer with 32 gib ram and a good graphics card, i just compared affinity photo 1.6 to Photoshop CC 2015. Both do well, but....... well on BIG images, Photoshop still on my computer seems faster.. i used a 3.5 gB file which taking Photoshop produced 21. gb inside the ram, opening it... Affinity converted this file to an affinity file and after saving it opened much much much faster as the Photoshop file .. and... it also used after opening it only about 6 Gb inside the ram.... very nice... but on the other hand zooming , paning and moving inside the document, when using affinity photo, was slower.. new areas of the document alwas had to be redrawn and reconstructed and refined.. this felt slower... for sure on smaler documents affinity feels fast.. So my question is...... affinity just is optimised for smaler images.. less memory, smaler filesizes, faster loading in the beginning, but when it comes to realy big documents as in my example, photoshop is faster.. so i wished, i had a switch in affinity, to choose from smal files or optimisation for big files, so that in big projects affinity can compare to Photoshop.. heres my screencaptur to show it...
  9. At last I have found an IPad app that can consistently export my edited RAW files at 300 dpi. I have used many photo editing apps on my iPad, and have found them impossible to configure for 300dpi output in order that I can continue working on them on my Laptop. It is highly likely that it is me and my ignorance of the way apps work but I have always felt a little cheated by the processing power of the iPad and the insistence that image are output at 76 or 96 dpi. Well done Serif for achieving this it now makes my processing options so much broader. And for less than £30.00 bargain!
  10. I use Photoshop's Image > Image Size feature all the time, and I must say that the addition of "Image Size" within Affinity Photo's "Resize Document" sheet would be welcomed. For example, when you change the PPI or dimensions in Photoshop, you see something like this: Image Size: 24.5MB (was 64MB) The key part of that is the "was" part in parenthesis. Thanks.
  11. ​In general I am enjoying the Affinity trial but note a few 'issues'. ​Speeds of analysing images in many modes is annoyingly slow. ​Using healing tool anywhere near an edge tends to leave a blurred -density blob. The healing tool is excellent in the main. Converting image to jpeg via export defaults to 85% each time I would like to keep default at 100%-maybe I haven't sussed where this preference can be set. File size on many images in JPEG export (at 100%) is very much larger than I am used to seeing in Photoplus8 even with minimal modifications applied. ​On a positive note, love Haze reduction and the tone mapping presets.
  12. When I import a 8bit Tiff image, into AP, it might be an excess of 200mb however after retouching it, exporting it back out as an 8bit tiff image , its reduced to 21-26mb. That is a significant file reduction, something has to give, why the reduction, what's being constrained? They are both the same file! Is AP compressing it?
  13. I have a two part question about cropping and image size. In Photoshop I was able to have it set so when I use the crop tool I have it set that if I'm cropping an image horizontally it will automatically set the image to 10 inches at 200dpi and the other size will adjust accordingly. Is there a way to do that here? I see that I can set a specific parameter for both sides, but I can't seem to figure out if I can have the horiztonal side set. Also is there a preset so that the image size window opens in inches not pixels? I'm just trying to keep a quick workflow and that slows it down when I have to go in each time to change that. Thank you!

    Image Exporting

    I need help - is my af photo to large? It will not export to a PSD. Makes an error noise / with no details and walks me through the exporting process but no psd is ever formed... Can I get some help? I've attached the photo. I just really need it in a psd!!! Thanks, rkeysar Here is my - Dropbox Link Bc it is a larger than 20MB photo I think.
  15. I'm brand new to Mac and to Affinity Design. I was a CorelDraw user since ver 1.0, and was very familiar with it. When my Windows laptop imploded last week, the entire family (literally) persuaded me to make the big switch. I'm now the proud owner of a 15", SSD, Retina Display, Intel Quad Core I7, MacBook Pro. It's just like my son's and he's very happy with it. Mac means "NO CorelDraw". I downloaded the trial copy of AD tonight and have been getting familiar through the videos and trial and error. I can't seem to make the page size that I input stick. It keeps resizing the pages smaller. I need vector software to design models for laser cutting and 3D printing. Therefore I need to scale drawing and output precise objects. I was able to work in any scale in CD, and see most of the same functionality in AD, but I'm unable to adjust the unit size in the rulers. When I input in the document set up for a custom page of 12" X 12" inches, it takes it, but as soon as I manipulate the drawing, the page size changes to something smaller and the imported bitmap that I'm tracing falls off the end of the page. What am I doing wrong?
