  1. Hi! I have trouble importing RAW-files to my iPad Pro (12,9, 2nd gen) running iOS 10. I have uploaded NEF-files to Google Drive from my Nikon D300. The problem is that they won't open. If I try to open them from GD with the "open in app"-command, nothing happens. And if I navigate to GD from within Affinity Photo the NEF-files are greyd out and cannot be opened. I tried to send a file to iCloud Drive but it too is grey and cannot be opened. I converted one of the files to a jpeg. and it opened just fine from GD. Looking forward to your reply, thanks! - Tuukka
  2. Hi all! I got a serious problem with some jpeg files after importing them. I tried to open a jpeg of a Corona sixpack (no promoting intended) in AP and this happens. Most parts of the photo are missing and the missing parts are transparent. Any ideas?? The issue is not present if I first open the jpeg in any other software and convert it to .png but I would really like to safe the time bc I work on thousands of photos... (sorry if a similar issue has already been posted and I missed it)
  3. Hello, confusion reigns. I am importing jpeg images from Olympus 16meg micro 4/3 camera to iPad using SD card adaptor and wirelessly using Cascable. When I view file size in iPad Photos using the app EXIF Wizard Pro it tell me they are about 2meg. In iPad files it tell me same file size 2meg. When I open these same JPEGs in Affinity and then export them the file size is 9meg, this is the file size I would expect. I have tried this with both raw and jpeg imports and jpeg only imports. Am I getting confused with thumbnail images and full resolution images when I query the file size? As mentioned I am getting 2meg file size in both Iphoto and in Files. is the image size being artificially increased when it is put into Affinity. is the app only giving me the size of the thumbnail and Affinity automatically open full resolution image? any thoughts greatly appreciated.

  4. I can't open ai or eps files exported from Rhino3D. These files work fine with Illustrator, but when I open them on Affinity Designer I only get a blank canvas with one layer. The canvas aspect ratio is coincident with the expected information, but I can't find the vector work. Thanks Rua.EPS Rua.AI
  5. When creating a Gradient for a Gradient Map, in order to save it the only option seems to be to click the 'Add Preset' button, which adds it as an adjustment preset. The problem is that there doesn't appear to be any way to import/export these presets. I've instead tried saving gradients as Swatches (as Swatches can be imported/exported), but these don't work properly for Gradient Maps. Is there a way to import/export Gradients for Gradient Maps that I'm overlooking?
  6. Hello, I have exported two SVGs in two different ways. I am running 1.6.1 on OSX and have some issues 1. via MATLAB - This imports fine but there is a curve mask which covers the real content of the image. I can delete the mask, but its pretty annoying to have to do this, and I spent a good half an hour trying to figure out if my image was even there. 2. via Python (using matplotlib) - The file is 50mb, not sure if this is the issue...but basically Affinity designer just hangs indefinitely. The plot was generated with https://matplotlib.org/api/_as_gen/matplotlib.pyplot.pcolormesh.html which I believe increased the size. (This is a big issue for me) - Smaller plots which just include a basic contour plot work just fine.
  7. I'm trying to add an image to an existing image. Whenever I import the image, it completely fills the existing image and can't be resized. So I created an additional image (afphoto file) because files in the afphoto format can be resized. However, when I complete the following steps nothing is shown on the screen. If I use the square tool and try to paste the new image inside a created field, nothing happens except the square field remains.
  8. Hi, I have a specific .AI file that imports completely empty in AD (and AP). The file imports fine in a friend's Illustrator and, if she saves it in the latest AI version, it then loads fine in AD. Is there a support email address I can send the AI file to in hopes that Affinity can spot the problem and improve the importer? Many thanks!
  9. Please see the attached file. The clipped artwork in the center is rendered on the AD canvas as if it were ~80% transparent, even though that shouldn't be the case. None of the layers imported by AD have a transparency assigned to them (as far as what is visible goes) so there's no way of making it "solid". Adding a white background renders the colors as they were intended. CPSA Flag.pdf
  10. Does tha current mac desktop version of affinity designer support import / export ou illustrator files? Thanks.
  11. Hi please help, Designer is my everyday go-to tool, and recently I have been having issues with the colour import. Every time I import an image, it looks washed out. When I then save this image and export it also appears washed out. I have played around with the project colour properties, but some far nothing works. Please help, hate Photoshop, but will have to grin and bear it, if can't find a fix to this soon. Thanks in advance Marcus
  12. I want to import/place the following SVG file (hlines.svg). It looks correct in Illustrator. I can also open the file in Chrome and it looks correct. Here is how it looks when imported/placed in Designer: It is faint, but only the square in the upper left corner appears and it is missing the two horizontal black bars. How do I fix this? If I open the file it looks similar but I get a long list of layers. It seems that all of the boxes are being stacked on top of each other. I can select a layer and then move the SVG object to a different location. In this example, I moved each of the boxes from the upper left corner, where they were stacked on top of each other. I don't care if the objects are on separate layers or flattened on the same layer. I am not doing any editing except for scaling the entire image to 30 in x 30 in. I just need it to look like the image at the top, hLines.svg
  13. Hey guys! terrific job with the updates. Love the software...use it on a regular basis. One thing I love about affinity is that I got to make a really good combo with apple motion. That way...I was able to free myself from Adobe in every way (no more photoshop and no more after effects). The thing is that since I've updated to affinity photo 1.6.7 PSD export from photo to Apple Motion is broken . I've tried the 3 different modes and no luck. It just imports an empty canvas. That's sad because PSD is the only format that I can use because it does support layers (when it use to open them..anyways). I've also tried to export in EXR format (layered) but I got an error message saying I couln't. I know it's this affinity 1.6.7 because this issue is new to this version...it worked perfectly with the previous version. Can you guys give me a hand? I promise I´ll post a youtube video on how to do motion graphics with affinity photo and motion if you solve this for me ASAP. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Best regards. Ben.
  14. Is there a way to do this with Photo? If now now, will there be Please? :)
  15. I am trying to install the bonuses but when I try to send them to my iPad, it says "sent" but they do not appear on my iPad. When I try to import, there is nothing in recent. I install and import with all kinds of other apps but I am perplexed with this one. Help is appreciated.
  16. Hey Affinity, Will AD be able to import Adobe Illustrator vector brush libraries? Would be very handy to be able to tap into the thousands of brushes out there... Keep up the awesome work!
  17. Hello, I'm testing the 10 days trial of Affinity Photo and have an issue with multi-layer TIFF images generated by Adobe Photoshop: when I import such images into Affinity Photo, all layers are gone, flattened into a single layer. Is there a way to make Photo recognize the Photoshop's multi-layer TIFFs? Thank you for your help!
  18. Hi all, Small question on brushes. In Affinity Designer we have the option to work with vector and raster brushes. We can also import brushes. I noticed that when I imported "DAUB | Comics Basic Set.afbrushes" in vector mode ("draw persona"), this set was not available, but is available in the raster mode ("pixel persona"). So, from this I conclude that *.abr or *.afbrushes are vector or raster specific. Is that a correct conclusion? Is there a possibility to use the same set of brushes in both vector and raster mode? Hope my questions are clear. O
  19. EDIT: The issues have been updated Hello everyone! When importing .psd files from Procreate, the layer blend settings will not be imported into Affinity Photo. Is this to be expected? Is this a limitation of Procreate's .psd export? Is this an issue with Affinity Photo? I am not using anything fancy. Just some color and some light layers. Best wishes, Shu Software used: Affinity Photo 1.5.1, Affinity Designer 1.5.1, OSX 11.6 Procreate 3.2
  20. I have updated to 1.6.7 on my IOS device (IPad pro, iOS 11.2.6) When I am trying to import ORF raw files (TG 5) no image is displayed in the raw development window, when I tap “develop” Affinity crashes, I am able tough to import ORF RAW files from an EM5 mk 2 Camera, is the Olympus TG 5 not supported by Affinity in spite of the IOS support for this camera? If not, when can I expect support for this camera?
  21. When I import a RAW file taken on the IPhone and develop it in Affinity’s RAW persona, and then do my processing and save the resulting AFF file, the thumbnail of that image shows in the Home screen as RGB 16 bit below the image dimensions. I’m a little confused; is this 16 bit/channel in the RGB, or the rather restrictive 16-bit RGB format? Sorry for a rather basic question, but I haven’t found an answer online. Thanks in advance. Edward
  22. Hi Is it possible to move a custom palette from Designer to Designer Beta? If so, how is it done? Thanks

  24. There are some black artefacts on SVG open agile.svg
  25. I’ve just downloaded the Affinity Photo app for the iPad and have a workflow question. I come from using LR on an iMac. I shoot a very large number of Photos per session. I might cull 80% of them immediately, as soon as I get a good view of the images. But in this iPad workflow, the problem is that once I pop my SD card into the reader, hundreds of photos (eventually) show up in the Photos app Import page, and from the small size of the thumbnails I cannot tell if an image is a keeper or not. I don’t want to import all the photos and then delete later—it will take forever, plus needlessly transfer all the photos to iCloud. Is there a solution to this I’m not thinking about? Is there a way to see larger thumbnails I don’t know about? Or a better import app that shows me larger images? Or perhaps is there an app that would let me look into the sd card and view them larger, before importing?
