  1. Hello! I'm trying to install a macro for Affinity designer. But I can't fint "Library" under VIEW > STUDIO. Where is it? (I recently updated to 1.8.6) Thanks!
  2. I have 469 large .psd images for which I want to make low resolution .jpg files. I have tried twice and each time some of the images end up being squeezed or stretched. The original images vary in size and aspect ratio. Some are portrait, some are landscape. What I have tried to do is set a macro to so that the width of any height of any image is reduced to 240 pixels with the Height and Width locked. This only seems to work properly on images having the same H:W ratio as the one open when I record the macro. Is there any solution to this in Affinity? I am fairly certain I did this numerous times in Photoshop before I switched to Affinity. I am running Affinity 1.8.6 on Mac OS 11.0.1. Thanks
  3. I had a few images around 60 or something.... with different resolutions 150dpis or 300dpis and with different aspect ratios. I opened them all, and recoded macro in first image with "unchecking Resample" and changed DPI to 72. Added this macro to Library. Library view... Now i wanted to run this macro on all documents by just switching tabs ... Command + ~ and click on macro. But this is not working it is also scaling the later images matching to the first image. Is this a bug or what? or I should use some different method..
  4. I used to record using Macro. But after I updated to Affinity photo 1.8.4 am not seeing Macro window. But my macro view is enabled. Attached screenshot
  5. Some time ago I created a set of macros to resize an image to a fixed maximum size, as described here. Recently @DanThePhotoMan asked about resizing to a fixed minumum size here. I have revisited these macros and created two sets, one resizing to fixed maximum size and the others to a fixed minimum size. They are all based on the following sequence for the maximum set: Layer > Unlock Layer > Rasterize and TrimFilter > Distort > Equations Enter the following in the x and y fields, substituting your own maximum size, then Apply (x/MAXSIZE)*max(h,w) (y/MAXSIZE)*max(h,w)Document > Clip Canvas Layer > RasterizeSelect > Alpha Range > Select Partially Transparent Edit > Fill> Inpainting Select > Deselect Where MAXSIZE is from the following pixel sizes: 640, 800, 1000, 1280, 1600, 2000. The set to resize to minimum is similar except that it uses min(w,h) instead of max(w,h) in step 3 (Equations). There is also a pair of macros to resize to an arbitrary size (up to 4000px). This macro pauses to allow you to enter a parameter a. It is convenient to enter this parameter in the form of MAXSIZE/4000, where MAXSIZE is the maximum (or minimum) required size. For example, if you wanted to resize to 3000px, you would enter 3000/4000, which evaluates to 0.75. (You could enter 0.75 if you wanted.) Note that the resizing algorithm in the Equations process is not defined. Here are the macros as a library (.afmacros) file. Resize.afmacros John @Traveler @Gnobelix @affwin @firstdefence
  6. I posted this two days ago and its' scrolled down to Page 4 without a single view so I'm trying again ........ :unsure: The macro recorder will happily record Edit > Cut and Edit> Paste but won't record Edit > Copy. This seems so illogical I am presuming it must be simple oversight. In which case it might hopefully be simple to cure. I wanted to get this in before your release in the hopes that it is simple enough rectify in time for it. It's a common basic command and not being able to include it in macros is very frustrating. It applies right up to beta 11. Any chance of looking at this please? I would love to have this working.
  7. Would anybody be willing to share their Epic Skies.afmacros with me? It is no longer available for free or purchase from either Affinity or Uplift. Thanks.
  8. Recently migrated to Affinity Photo and I found an interesting tutorial for infrared. I decided to turn it into a macro (in fact, my first macro with APh). You can download it here: Ivans Infrared Macro.afmacro Here are two results: This is the original video tutorial:
  9. Hi folks have loved using Affinity Photo design for the last few years and will never be going back to Photoshop. I am having issues however with getting the Library Macros to work, ie Light Leaks , neon fade and all that fun stuff. They all import however when clicking they do not apply or bring up any menu Can someone help?
  10. Hallo, ich stelle euch ca. 68 Textur Macros für Affinity Photo zu verfügung. (Cave) Achtung: Die Macros worden auf einen alten Mac erstellt ob diese unter Windows oder einen iPad laufen kann ich euch nicht sagen. Die Macros sind nicht geeignet für eine Pixelauswahl!, verwendet immer ein leeres Dokument (neues). Bei einigen Macros muss in der Bibliothek - unteres linkes Feld (Dehnen) Eingestell werden. Zum Beispiel bei: Macro Backsteinmauer v.2.0 und v.8.2 sowie Candy 1.0 und Draht 1.0 / Tranc v.1.9 Verwendet die Macro nicht direkt in euren Bildwerken (Composings) da sonst ein Ebenen Chaos entstehen könnte oder schlimmer Ebenen verloren gehen könnten. Erstellt lieber ein neues Dokument und Copier dann die Textur in euren Bildwerk (Composing). Anwenden der Macros: 1. Ihr braucht nur ein leeres Dokument zu erstellen Beispiel 2000 Px X 2000 Px 148/300 DPI (PPI) 8 Bit RGB oder 16 Bit. 2. Bibliothek aufrufen und das endsprechende Macro starten. Aus Zeitlichen gründen, konnte ich leider nicht die Macros ins Englische übersetzen. Viel Spass.

(Cave) Warning: The macros were created on a Mac, I can't tell you whether they run under Windows or an iPad. The macros are not suitable for pixel selection !, always use an empty document (new one). For some macros, the lower left field (stretch) must be set in the library. For example: Macro brick wall v.2.0 and v.8.2 as well as Candy 1.0 and wire 1.0 / Tranc v.1.9 Do not use the macro directly in your images (composings) as otherwise a level chaos could arise or worse levels could be lost. Rather create a new document and then copy the texture into your image (composing). Applying the macros: 1. You only need to create an empty document. Example 2000 Px X 2000 Px 148/300 DPI (PPI) 8 bit RGB or 16 bit. 2. Call up the library and start the corresponding macro. Due to time constraints, I was unfortunately unable to translate the macros into English. Have fun. Download:Texturen Makro by WIngendahl jr 2020.afmacros
  11. Hey! So I am going through over 500 product photos for our electronics company and I would like to automate creating slices. Basically for each product photo I am trying to export 7 standard slices with different aspect ratios and crops, so slices is definitely the tool for that. But it seems like a prime application for a macro or other preset thing where I can create all of these slices automatically with the export preset and aspect ratios that I want. I would still have to frame each photo and fine tune it, but having the slices all ready for me would be awesome. The macro tool seems to only work in the Photo persona. I timed myself a few times and doing the math, if I can automate this I will save me 20 hours of work! Best, Jared

  13. Hi, would love to be able to record percentage changes in macros. For example change canvas size: 200% x 200% and record this as a percentage in a macro. (I know that you can update the canvas by 200%. This is simply a request to Affinity that the percentage is recored in a macro and not (for example) the resulting px result). Thanks
  14. Some time ago I produced a macro to Wrap an Image around a Bottle or Mug. This involved some complex trigonometrical operations on the image. I present here an alternative approach for a macro to perform the same action. Here is my original image: o It is easily possible to produce an equation that contracts the image width-wise to emulate the reduction in perceived width as the image is wrapped. Such an equation has the form: x=w/2+(w/2-x)*pi/2 and has the result of: The contraction is uniform across the reduced width. The expression pi/2 is the appropriate scaling for a bottle diameter that accepts the image around its half-circumference. What I was aiming for was a function that would scale the edges so that they appeared contracted, whilst applying zero scaling to the centre of the image. After much trial and error, I came up with this: x=w/2-(w/2-x)*(1+1.571*(1-sqrt(1-(1-2*x/w)^2))) Edit: Note that this has a minus sign after the first w/2. The original had a plus sign. The value 1.571 is just half pi. The resulting image is: This is a single result. I have further refined by including a scaling parameter, a, which accentuates the compression at the edges. w/2+(w/2-x)*(1+(1.571/a)*(1-sqrt(1-(1-2*x/w)^2))) Here it is with the a parameter around half. Note that in these images, the central squares remain square. Edit: Like my previous version it has a parameter (in this case b) which affects the viewpoint, above or below. If you want to use this then you need to enlarge the canvas vertically beforehand to give room for the curvature. You may wish to use Document > Clip Canvas at the end in this case. Edit: various members had pointed out that the final image was flipped horizontally. This has now been fixed. I have also added Layer > Unlock and Layer > Rasterize at the start of the macro. I have not added a clip canvas at the end. Do you think that this is desirable? Here is the macro: WrapAroundV2.afmacro John
  15. It would really help speed up my workflow if it was possible to record macros on the iPad version of Affinity Photo. I'm really hoping to see this feature in the next updates.
  16. Hi, I use macros in batch processing. One job will change the canvas to design a border. I change the canvas in Wide and High absolut by +150px. But the calculation is now fix in the new size and works only with pictures that have the same size. I found no solution to do that in relation to the canvas size.
  17. Is it possible to make use of macros developing RAW photos in Develop Persona? "Macro" appears in studio only in Photo Persona.
  18. In a recent posting, @MaximusNZhad been creating panoramas, but had found that the upper and lower parts of the image were compressed with respect to the more central parts. He posted a message in my thread on Wrapping a label round a bottle since this also involved such stretching and squeezing. I posed a temporary solution to his/her problem, but I present here a more general solution. This is based on the S-curve, familiar to those using the Curves tool. The default shape for the curve is a straight line between the origin and the (w, h) position at the top right. The parameters of the macro will distort this linear relationship. I will elaborate on the mathematical aspects in a later posing in this thread. Consider a simple grid: By varying a parameter a, the image can be distorted horizontally. Values of a larger than 0.5 will stretch the left and right whilst compressing the centre; values less than half will stretch the centre whilst stretching the left and right. See the image below: By varying a parameter b, the image can be distorted vertically. Values of b larger than 0.5 will stretch the top and bottom whilst compressing the centre; values less than half will stretch the centre whilst stretching the top and bottom. See the image below: Here is the macro as a single macro and as a library: S-curve.afmacro S-curve.afmacros John
  19. When using a macro in Photo Persona - Publisher sets back the active tool to hand-tool(H). For me it's a bug, because without any reason the program does something without any value for me. To the contrary! Now I have to select my desired tool again - in my case "select"-tool(v) to continue using macro... and then it happens again. For me it does not make sense at all.
  20. Sou cliente de vocês a um bocado de tempo e gostei do que vejo, mas solicito saber como faço para criar uma macro com texto no Affinity Photo, como eu fazia no Photoshop? Necessito da informação urgente, ou necessitarei voltar para o photoshop? (I've been a client of yours for a long time and I liked what I see, but I ask to know how do I create a macro with text in Affinity Photo, as I did in Photoshop)

  25. In a recent posting @skitchy enquired about shifting pixels using Procedural Textures. I was not able to help, but I realised that you could perform an Affine Transformation (Filters > Distort > Affine) using Equations (Filters > Distort > Equations) instead. I used two parameters which control the horizontal shift and the vertical shift. Here is a photo before applying the macro: and after applying the macro: The horizontal shift was around a half, and the vertical shift about 0.8. Here are the equations: x= irem(x+a*w,w)y= irem(y+b*h,h) As I said, they do not do anything that the Affine Transformation would not do (in a macro), but I offer them here as an alternative which might be more convenient within the context of a more extended procedure. Here is the macro, and the macro library: Macro: Affine Transform.afmacro Library: Affine Transform.afmacros John
