  1. Hello Affinity World! I am new to Affinity Photo. It is my first important step to abandon Adobe from my Mac. Learning to use Affinity Photo goes well, but there is one section, where I am struggling: Many times I have to work with JPEG files of product shots on a neutral (mostly white) background, that have one or more embedded clipping paths. Opening such a file in AP does show me these paths and I can clip (or blank out) the white background. So far, so good. But Affinity Photo doesn't seem to be able to save (or export) JPEGs with these clipping paths. Or at least, I can't see the logic behind it. Example: Composing an Image in Affinity Photo I have a background and want to place (import) a product shot on that background. I'm choosing a JPEG with embedded clipping path. But when the image is placed, it has a white background, and I can't find an option to use the embedded clipping path, to remove the white background. The only way I found to do that, is to open the JPEG separately in AP, then chose the path (background is now transparent), select the main object by clicking on it, copy it to the clipboard go to the composite image and paste it. Example: Saving a JPEG with clipping path In Photoshop: I create a selection, refine it, click on "make work path from selection", double click it, to make it a clipping path, and save it as JPEG. The path is now embedded into the JPEG file, and when placing it within an InDesign document, I can choose the clipping path to remove the white background. But I could not find a way to save a path into JPEG with Affinity Photo. As long as Affinity Publisher is not out and hasn't proven it's capabilities, I am tied to InDesign. So I need to create and save JPEGs with clipping paths. – TIFFs, PSDs and so an are no option! So finally the question: How exactly can I save JPEGs with embedded clipping paths, so that I can chose them in InDesign to remove the background? Many thanks for you help!
  2. In the Export Persona, when exporting an image for the web and you want the size as small as possible, you want to see a preview of what you will be exporting. So you can change the quality of a jpeg and see instantly what the result will be. The same when you change the number of colors in the palette of gifs and pngs. Also show the sizes in bytes of the slices you are exporting. The size is shown in the simple Export, but not in the more advanced Export Persona. Fireworks does this very well, it even has multiple previews with different export settings.
  3. I placed an image into a Publisher document page and added text within the image area. After grouping all of the elements, with the group selected I exported to JPEG ("Selection with background"). The resulting JPEG file contained a thin white border that was not in the original file. Then I tried exporting using the "without background" setting. Same result. Then I tried it as a PNG ("selection with background"). Same result. Next I tried it as a PNG without background and finally the thing was exported without the thin white rule. This has happened several times when I've exported a selection to JPEG. (The quality setting is always 85 or higher.) So it doesn't appear to be some peculiarity of a particular image. I don't want to have to export first to PNG, then open the PNG file in some other program and re-save as JPEG. Is there some way to save from Publisher to JPEG without the unwanted rule around the image?
  4. hello designers, after i have done a project i exported it and this is what happend (in picture) it is rasteraize and it is very clear when i export many shapes Can someone tells me what is the correct method to export a logo in affinity designer ? because i iam a new affinity user thanks.
  5. After processing JPEG and TIFF files in Affinity Photo for Windows, I can no longer open the files in Nikon Capture NX-D. However, the same files will open in other programs such as Picture Window Pro, Windows Photo Viewer, & On One. Any suggestions? Thank you.
  6. This is something I use Corel Paintshop Pro X4 for. The ability to remove JPEG Artifacts from images by first adding subtle noise and then selecting an edge preserving smooth. This removes the blocky look to highly compressed images. Interestingly the Despeckle feature did it in one step on the first Photoshop Elements app. I'd like to see this feature in Affinity Photo in the future. Maybe under an image repair persona,
  7. In making a book of photographs to be printed by a print-on-demand company, I found I'd exceeded their 300 MB per PDF limit even before I had all image files placed in the Publisher document. The idea of further JPEG compression was not appealing but I decided (holding my nose the entire time) to try compression settings during export to PDF. The results surprised me. No compression: 388.5 MB No compression (2nd time around): 363.4 MB (why the difference?) Compression setting 100: 211 MB Compression setting 99: 182.7 MB Compression setting 97: 139 MB Compression setting 95: 114 MB Compression setting 90: 83 MB I take it this means that the max quality setting (100) still involves re-compression of the images. All along I'd thought 100 means: no compression. Apparently not. So if output file sizes are plaguing you, perhaps the slight JPEG compression will be helpful. Before starting the tests I ran the original JPEGs through the compression program JPEG-Mini. It made a whopping difference in the files' sizes and without noticeable loss of quality. But using the JPEGs compressed with JPEG-Mini as source files within the Publisher document doesn't seem to have provided a lot of savings during export to PDF. Perhaps JPEG-Mini's major advantage is a "web thing" and not a "print thing".
  8. Does anyone know what's the default setting for saving (not exporting) JPEG? After editing JPEG files with layers flattened, we could "save" the file directly. However, I don't know the quality and other settings when saving JPEG. I know I could export JPEG file with the settings I want, but to speed up the workflow, it'd be great if I could know and adjust the settings of default JPEG saving. If anyone knows how to do it, please let me know. Thank you very much for your help. Best regards, Sleepy
  9. Publisher insists on using, as the title string that it embeds in both PDF and JPEG output files, the name of an .aftemplate file that was deleted from disk. But the program has stored that name string somewhere and will not let go of it. How do I get rid of it? Otherwise I will have to run ExifTool and edit the string every time I export a document. Having the title that far off the mark just isn't acceptable. For a PDF file, the string in question is written as the document title (ExifTool shows the tag name as simply "Title"). For a JPEG file, ExifTool shows the string being used as the value of the IPTC tag "ObjectName". If need be I'm willing to edit the Windows registry to get rid of this thing. Please tell me it can be gotten rid of...
  10. I can export as a jpeg (as the tutorial suggests) but when I try to then import the newly created brush image, my file box only shows PNG's, any idea why or what I might be doing wrong?
  11. Hi, I'm very much a beginner with Affinity Photo after years of only editing my photos in RAW form in apps like Lightroom and Capture One. What I've always understood is that a JPEG file is the final form, with edits 'baked in'. The idea of adding an HSL or brightness and contrast layer to a JPEG file seems very strange - surely this will push a compressed image too far? I understand adding pixel layers with creative effects or combining images, but what is the expert opinion on adjustments? My expected workflow will still be doing essential edits in a RAW editor, but should I export the end result as a TIFF file, for example, for more creative work in Affinity Photo in order to preserve quality and avoid artefacts?
  12. Need to export an image in designer to JPEG but under 1MB if possible for optimal website loading. The image is 2048x2048 px and it has to stay those measurements, the picture is perfect quality of 400dpi and need to keep it perfect quality. At the moment the images are exporting as 2-3MB per image. I have tried to set the document as 'web' but it reverts back to 'photo'. I know it's possible to do so as my competitors are achieving this with perfect images and having 170KB image size in JPEG files. Please help! Thank you!
  13. I'm having trouble figuring out how to export a JPEG for print. The document is set to print and is 300 dpi, however, when I save, the image is 72 dpi. I don't see an option in the save settings (attached).
  14. I recently encountered an export issue with a gate-fold card project I created. The document is a 4 page, "facing pages" project, with mixed spread dimensions: Page 1: 15x7in Page 2 & 3: 5x7in Page 4: 10x7in It is configure this way so that I get 4 images when I export All Pages, and the single image on pages 2 & 3 is split in half. When I export All Spreads, it produces 3 images, all with correct dimensions (4500x2100, 3000x2100, 3000x2100). When I export All Pages, all 4 images are forced into a single dimension (4500x2100). In all cases, I am exporting using preset JPEG (Best Quality) I tried playing around with various settings, but always with the same result. A document is attached from which I can reproduce this issue. I reproduced this with versions 1.7.2 and 1.7.3 - at first I thought it was a regression introduced in 1.7.3, but reproduced after rolling back to 1.7.2. 5x7 Gate Fold - Export Bug.afpub
  15. I am trying to stitch 5 jpeg images and it just sits there with one thread maxxed out displaying "Loading 1 document..." in the title bar. Given the comparative speed with which I can stich 14 RAW files I am going to assume this is a bug.
  16. Initially say that I am a beginner in photo editing. Affinity is my first edition software. I acquired affinity about a year ago. I am happy with the program. With the latest update, I can't export to jpeg. (Only after some adjustment to the photography.) When I try to export, The CPU reaches 100%, and affinity does not respond stays frozen with the export bar for minutes. It didn't happen to me before. I did various tests, including uninstalling and installing. Also look in my files for photos previously edited and exported to jpg. And select the Affinity file to test if I could export it, since I already did it months ago. But this time it doesn't work. It only happens to me since the last update.
  17. I am somewhat new to affinity but not photo programs, I was trying to batch some Cr2 RAW from canon to jpeg for facebook uploads, when i go to create the macro all I am doing is sharpening, I would loved to create the presets or macro in the persona ? and not have to go into develop just to do that, maybe I'm missing something, these are just quick changes nothing super important. I open the RAW and exposure looks good just needs a tad sharpening....however after the batch they are 1-2 stops darker, i can't hardly judge batching them from the develop to the batch for the macro original and batched attached I just don't understand why or what I am missing, well i'd upload the files but i get an error 200 so here is a couple screen grabs you can see the difference in the brightness but like i mentioned all I'm doing is batch converting to jpeg and a sharpening, even if i don't do the sharpen it still makes them darker
  18. Hello, I am a new user. Working on my first photo and when I export a jpeg using the "Best Quality" preset, my image has these strange large pixelations that are not present in the original. It is also happening when I export a Tiff. However, pdf export correctly. Files are attached. I am working from a RAW photo taken on Sony A7s. Help would be greatly appreciated. I am thrilled with the app so far aside from this hiccup. Hanalei Pier.tiff Hanalei_Pier.pdf
  19. 1) Photos have been imported from Ricoh GRii to iPhoto. 2) On Ricoh's, when you shoot JPEG+RAW in black and white, the JPEG will be black and white but the RAW will always be in color. 3) From there I am attempting to import a black and white photo to Affinity. When viewing the photo library to select which photo I want to import, the black and white photo appears black and white and there is the RAW icon in the bottom right the photo. 4) I then import the photo but it will only appear as the color RAW version. 5) How do I import the JPEG instead of the RAW?
  20. Im experiencing the weirdest issue: When I go to export my Affinity Photo file (Aprox. 33mb), and I select Jpeg, at 85% quality with no dimensional changes 600px X 1200px at 72 dpi, Im getting massive files. 88mb jpegs! That is insane. I have never had this issue with AP. I cant image what is creating this phenomenon. If I then open this jpeg and flatten it, the file size goes back to what you would expect. (300 k) I was under the impression that Jpeg have no layers and are flat by definition. What is going on here? Any suggestions?
  21. I need help! Everytime I do a batch job from RAW to JPG, Affinity saves all the new JPG's much darker than before! Can anyone help me to avoid that? Greetings
  22. Hi, Just found out about this software and wanted to know if Affinity Photo software has a tool like Photoshop's Camera Raw Filter that works on jpegs. much thanks Darren
  23. Hi all, I created a shape using eight square 10X10 symbols. I used the grid view and snapped the squares into a 10px spacing grid. Now I notice that when I turn the grid off, there are grid lines around the squares. The grid lines disappear when viewing the document at 1000%. When I export as JPEG, I can see the grid lines. There is no stroke around the symbol, but if I add a stroke, the grid lines seem to disappear. I'd rather not add a stroke unless I need to. And, I'd like to use squares instead of rectangles. Is there a setting I'm unaware of that I should select to remove the grid lines, or is this a bug that hasn't been resolved yet? My file is attached. Thanks for your help. gridlines.afdesign
  24. On Affinity Photo I want to export an entire black image to a 3x3 square of slices. As this square is bigger than original image, 8 exported slices but the center's one have extra pixels. When I exported slices, these extra pixels are white. I want them to be black. I tried many tricks without success: change background color of image, add a square below the image and fill it with black... No success. Extra pixels are always white. Is there a way to achieve this goal? Original image Mosaic of slices Slices As you can see, extra background is white. Top left slice
  25. Hello, I am wondering wether its an issue or I’m doing something wrong, but when exporting a particular image it appears to get brighter in areas of the image which contain more light in the city part of the shot, but the sky seems to all get brighter.. what am i missing or have I found a bug? Please see the attached images. First two are screen shots, This is occurring if I export as a PNG, Tiff or JPEG, haven’t tried others yet. Exported File: 3DFBCE27-6DB5-4728-B46F-EE90FEB4C11A.tiff Screen shot of exported file: Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
