  1. Hi, Just wondering if there is a way for me to share the AD assets that I've added to the app on my laptop so they also appear in the app on my desktop. I've added a load to the assets panel on my laptop, but when I opened the app on my desktop this morning, none of them were there. Guess it's because it's app based and not cloud based. Is that right? Is there a way of saving them and uploading from one to the other? Cheers, Cathie
  2. I'm trying to tidy up my portfolio for the summer, but everytime I open up a project in Affinity Designer and go to studio -> color -> and then try to make a color adjustment the software crashes. It does this mostly when I start to do things other than resizing and moving things around... so basically trying to perform anything further than that makes the software crash. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and updating (no updates are available) and still nothing works. Also, the layout of the screen seemed to have changed somehow during this process. When the application opens, my home screen no longer automatically brings up the layers or color wheel or anything. And then, trying to get them back and use them crashes the software. Super annoying. I am going to attach the error message that I get everytime the software crashes. I copied and pasted it into a pdf file. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP. I don't want to have to go back to Adobe Illustrator. Crash.pdf
  3. Hi, I'm a new user of Designer. What Windows10 laptops sold in the US would any and all of you reccomend I get? Thank you. LucyP
  4. Hello I understand Affinity Photo can benefit from the usage of a GPU, I have an Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M since it's a laptop. My question is, to ascertain that software does is working with the GPU, should I select the GPU selection in the Affinity Photo Preference Menu in the Performance Tab?, should I assign it directly in the Nvidia control panel? or should I do both things? Thank you
  5. I also find Affinity Photo unstable, I have the trial and I've had it hang and crash on me a few times, one time I lost hours of work (my own fault) just by hitting the tone mapping. Another time I used a filter and it hung and then crashed. I7 7700k 16GB Ram EVGA GTX1070 FTW SSD
  6. I have just used the trial of Affinity Photo and am now considering purchasing. I have a PC and Laptop and wondered if I have to purchase 2 downloads or will 1 download allow me to use on both computers?
  7. Hi guys. I'm using at the moment Photoshop 5 and testing Affinity 1.6 for Windows. Looks very good and seriously an alternative to Photoshop, because I hate the subscription model of Adobe. However, my question is more the following. Is it possible to use Affinity either on my laptop or on my desktop when I buy one licence? Meaning, can I install it on both instance and use it either/or? I’m using Windows 10 64bit with an Acer Power Desctop 16MB RAM and a Asus Power Desctop 16MB RAM. Thanks for a quick info
  8. The problem started when about a week ago, I downloaded the latest drivers for the GPU, I downloaded the beta ones what happened next that the laptop started to freeze, after a bit of tinkering it started to work again. Then next day I switched the laptop on and then right after the startup the login screen flashed and then there was the Black Screen.my friend has told me that it was the graphic driver problem.i have also searched on the internet and I have found some of the graphic driver websites.can you tell can I trust that websites or not.http://driverbasket.com/https://go4download.com/
  9. My context tool bar and the associated bar below it do not show on my 2016 Mac laptop. I was told to go back to the default and try again, but it still does not show after many tries. I am miirroring this laptop screen on a 30" Mac screen, and the context tool bar and the bar below it still do not show. In Studio/View the context tool bar is checked, and if unchecked and check it again, nothing changes. Is this a problem with AD getting everything on a laptop screen and therefore neither does my 30" screen mirroring my laptop does not show it? All of the other menus (layer, swathes, etc.) come up fine.
  10. I've been using my surface device to edit photos and I've come to the conclusion that it is nowhere near enough powerful for photo editing. My workflow is mainly using develop persona - changing exposure, white balance, lens correction, tone curves, detail refinement etc. I have a lot of photos still pending, almost 2000 actually I'm thinking of getting a new laptop. But I don't know which would be good enough for affinity photo I was thinking of a laptop with these minimum specs Screen: 17 inch, 1080p RAM: 12GB Processor: i7, 7th generation Hard drive: 1TB 7200rpm OS: Windows 10 The thing I don't know is what graphics card to include so that it can run smoothly without any issues. Should it be NVIDIA 940 or 965 or higher? And what size? 2GB or 4GB? When I'm editing RAW files on my surface, it takes me at least 6 minutes per photo. If I try editing on my 5 year old laptop, it does it in 2 minutes but after 20-25 photos, affinity slows down and crashes So I need something that is significantly better than what my 2 devices above can do Any suggestions? Specifically from anyone who has a workflow similar to mine Thank you
  11. Hi, Slow and unstable (freeze) work program on the laptop Lenovo Y70 (i5 4200H and GTX860m). By the way, I noticed a very large memory usage in Windows 10. What can be the reason? Thanks
  12. Hi I am very keen on getting started with some graphic design based projects. Currently on a chrome book so that won't work. I am wondering if the affinity programs will work on a standard laptop such as the below : http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/dell-inspiron-15-5000-15-6-laptop-white-10157730-pdt.html Thanks
  13. I've looked everywhere to find if I can use my same Affinity Designer program on my MacPro (where it is now) *and* on my laptop or should I buy another copy. The price being what it is, I'm ready to buy another copy if necessary but thought I'd at least ask. For almost three decades I've been through the mill with Freehand and Illustrator, and now AD is a huge relief—easy to use, versatile, great forum that actually offers tremendous help and very open to new features, even in this early period of development. Hats off!
