  1. Trying to replicate the process (link) to blur (bokeh) an image background and use a mask to retain sharpness of foreground. Desktop version seems to work fine. Ipad version mask requires precise tracing of foreground vs the general masking (black) and having image show properly per the desktop version. How can the ipad version behave like desktop version? Using an Ipad Air2. Does Affinity Photo run differently on iPad Pro?
  2. Hi all, Would be nice to be able to add color label to layers for organizational purposes, when dealing with +50 layers and groups, having them categorized by colors would make it easier to navigate in the Layers panel. If this feature is added, please allow the users to choose any color and not limited by few presets only. Cheers, Juan
  3. Hi all, Would it be possible to have the All Layers option from the Selection Brush tool into the Flood Select tool as well? Cheers, Juan
  4. Hey everyone! When I want to export layers, most of the time, I need the full file resolution. Exporting like that would be much more efficient if there was a shortcut for using the document bounds for the current slice or an option for automatically assign document bounds for new slices. Best wishes, Shu
  5. Affinity Publisher is exciting, and has a lot of potential in it. I would like to say goodbye to InDesign. I want Affinity Publisher to map the actual layer layout in a PDF file (see image), along with nested layers. However, the "Layers" button should be unambiguous in the Export window.
  6. Hi, It would be great if you could support option-click to "collapse all" levels beneath the level clicked in a hierarchy (specifically the layers hierarchy). This is somewhat common in other MacOS software. In complex illustrations/designs it would be an enormous time saver. Thanks, Chris
  7. Hi there, I just got an iPad Pro and was so excited to start replacing my Mac & Intuos combo with it using Affinity, but I must say I feel rather disappointed. If you see my illustrations at xebius.com you can tell the amount of layers on top of layers I need to deal with to get that level of detail. It’s essential for me to be able to select layers that are underneath without needing to open the layers menu every time. On PS is so simple, you press Cmnd or the button on my Wacom pen and will pop me a window showing all the layers underneath so I can choose. Is any gesture or way to do this on Affinity?? I am not talking of the layers that are underneath on the layer order in the menu, but in fact right underneath on that part of the canvas. It would be awesome having a gesture for this, since is frequent to have a big layer covering a smaller one and you could find it easily, move it on up or down, etc. Is any way to do this? If not I will have to pass on using this software, I am afraid. Thanks in advance! Manuel
  8. Hey everyone! I'm not sure if this happens when using other Affinity software, but when exporting to .psd, Photo on iPad deletes empty layers and a layer if it has solid color and is placed as last layer and sets its color as background color. Please don't assume empty layers could be deleted or a solid color layer should be converted to background color. This is quite inconvenient. Best wishes, Shu
  9. Hi, it would be great if you add CSS export feature like CSS Hat (https://csshat.com). I think that every HTML & CSS coder will buy your Affinity Designer and stop using expensive Photoshop :-) Thanks. Petr
  10. I am currently testing Photo right now as a viable replacement for Photoshop, after 24 years. Since I do game development, there is a very necessary feature that I need to use and can't find it in AP. In order to do some special texture creation, I would need to be able to turn RGB visibility on and off individually per layer or layer group. In Photoshop, in a layer's properties, you can turn off Green and Blue, for example, and have only the Red channel show for that layer (or layer group). Then, in another channel, only show the Green channel. In this way, texture maps can be created for use in 3D programs like 3ds Max, and in games for things like specular effects and normal maps for bumps. Also, I don't see a way to make adjustments to levels on a specific channel by selecting it and making the changes. I need to be able to see the grayscale of each channel as I'm tweaking it. This is especially important in specular and normal map creation for games. Hopefully, someone here has worked in game dev and knows what I am referring to. If I cannot control the RGB visibility and adjustments in layers and groups, then Affinity Photo will not work for what I am doing. I truly hope it's in there, and I just don't see it, or that maybe it's in the works for the next version. Thanks.
  11. I installed my second Huion drawing tablet yesterday and love it so far (last older model got misplaced). I've been working on a project since then with no problems yesterday. Today, there were a few minor glitches using Affinity: Document suddenly moved off to the side so half was in view and I couldn't move it back using the hand--closed then reopened document and it was fine. Also, when I applied the "outline" effect to a layer, it would reset to "0" outline when I left the effects window...Now, I cannot paint on a layer! I tried restarting Affinity, restarting my computer. It still happens. Even on another transparent background png. It just paints behind the layer, even though I have selected the layer to work on. I tried disconnecting the tablet and working with just the computer's mouse pad. Still no luck.
  12. Hello, I have a web layout that I've created using Affinity Designer and I want to export it as a PSD with layers (preferrably editable where possible) so someone I'm working with who only has and knows Photoshop can make changes. However, when I export the layout no matter which preset I choose (even PSD preserve editability) it always exports flattened to one pixel background layer. I'm opening the result in Photoshop CC 2018. What do I need to change so that it will export my document to layers?

    AD merge layers

    Hi. New to AD IOS (and to any vector app) and can’t figure out how to merge x3 pixel layers. Can someone help please?
  15. It would be a great help, if colour coding of layers coud be better visible. For example like this:
  16. Indesign has a powerful feature which lets me select the layer-display of referenced (not embedded) Photoshop psd's or Illustrator .ai files. A checkbox in the Importer lets users check select just the layers (or layer comps) they need, but one can re-access the layer display dialog at any time later via Object/Object Layer Options and the display of the placed file updates correspondingly. Is similar already available for placed Affinity files or even other layered document types (psd, tif)? If not – is this planned?
  17. If attempting to re-order layers by dragging the program crashes.
  18. Sorry if this has been mentioned before but can't find it if it has. Is there or can there be the ability to import video files into Affinity in order to separate the frames for individual working. Photoshop has had this function and is very handy.
  19. I have made adjustment layers to make my model's skin look more red, a fill layer with a peachy tone, and an adjustment layer to make cheeks look more red. I have ordered the layers as typed from bottom to high. When I group the layers together, I have noticed that my red skin layer does not respond to turning on or off if the fill layer is turned off (as if the red skin layer doesn't exist). When the fill layer is turned on, the red skin layer can be turned on and off. I have also ungrouped the layers and the red skin layer works perfectly normal regardless of the fill layer. Is this a bug and can it be fixed?
  20. I would like to stack several images together but still have complete access to the underlying layers. I'm taking close up photos of flowers in the field, using several images to produce one composite that is acceptably sharp throughout despite the handicaps of having a moving subject. I take a series of close ups of the different parts of a flower and then stitch them together. I've tried using the Stack option but the image that is produced is often missing part of my information since the images do not line up one in front of the other and the resulting image has a non-standard aspect ratio. I've also tried using the Panorama option but here, I cannot find a way to access the layers and their layer masks individually. I've seen the brushes that allow you to paint in a mask, but find them extremely difficult to use since a good part of each image is hidden behind another. Since the flowers move as I'm often having to do this outdoors in windy conditions, Focus Merge yields too many ghosts. Any ideas? I would like to have a stack or panorama of images which shows the all the image information that I have and also the underlying layers. I can do this is PS photomerge if I uncheck the option to merge the images together. How could I accomplish this in Affinity? Thanks!
  21. Does anybody know of a way to nest layers rather than the very silly and fiddly (shoot 'em up game) drag over the thumbnail and try and get the blue vertical bar to light up? If you want to use a layer as a mask, instead of "shooting" the vertical blue bar, you can "Mask to below" which does the same thing, However, I want the layer to be a Child, not a Nest, which is a very different thing. Ask any bird! Quite why Serif have not included a Nest to below option I can't imagine. After all, it's a vital part of the layer process. But I might be missing something obvious.
  22. Hi. It would be great to be able to sort by name, kind, layer order, and probably some more. So for instance, if you want to swap stroke and fill Color for all circles, your sort by kind, select circles, and hit the swop fill double arrow.
  23. Due to a corrupted file, I've reverted to a previous version (last worked on using v1.7.0.140) and observed something I don't recall seeing before. There's a red striped "decoration" down the left edge of many of the layers (text frames, shapes, curves) in the Layers panel. Where this exists on a group, it is present on each sub-layer when the group is expanded. This is a Master page which is, initially not applied to any document pages. After applying the master to a document page, the red stripes change to a solid red line which is now present on every layer. Looking back to previous versions of this same file, those lines are present there too. It's the sort of thing I'd like to think I'd notice and I don't recall spotting them before. Makes me think this has arrived with 1.7.0.145… I can't find any reference in either the Layers section of the manual or the Layer Panel page in the Help. I also did a quick search across the forum and drew a blank. Can anyone explain what these stripes signify?
  24. Hello, I have a situation where I have ~650 layers, all well named that I need to search through quickly to hide/show for different permutations of an image. Is there a way I can either sort the layers alphabetically to find them more easily or search for them. Thanks.
  25. I've searched the forum and found this topic only once so perhaps I'm missing something. AP is great, I'm sure I will be able to move from InDesign but having no document wide layers is driving me mad! On a multi-page document I'll want a layer for images, another for text etc. On AP it appears I have to set that up on each page. I can't believe it - please tell me I've missed something. Bob
