  3. I draw with a pen and keyboard in affnity photo.I want to use sortcut for change brushs,macros.
  4. Now that I have made the switch to AP I am re-working many of my astrophotography macros. I will share them here with brief instructions and encourage others to share theirs. All my macros are for Windows OS This set of 3 takes the basic individual monochrome filtered R G and B images and converts each into a colour channel. Load each RGB file separately into AP, Run the respective macro and copy the output of each into a single AP layered document, then set the blend mode of each to add This will output a single RGB non white balanced file grey to blue.afmacro grey to green.afmacro grey to red.afmacro
  5. I was having an issue with Affinity Photo 1.8.4 and decided to delete it and redownload from my iMac, running Mojave. Exported my macros first, but forgot to export another category. I have CCC clones, so thought I'd just copy the macros over to the new installation, but can't find them and a search has turned up nothing. Any help is much appreciated.
  6. I found some old requests to add Macros to Affinity Designer, here, here and here, just starting new topic to make those requests live. I believe that Macros in AD will be appreciated by many users. Any comments from development team?
  7. I'm just new to Affinity Designer and so far loving it, but I was really surprised today to discover there is no capability for setting up macros to speed up the processes I use. It's a feature I rely heavily on in Adobe. Would love to see this in a future update as I'm sure I'm not the only one who uses macros to speed up workflow.

  9. I had to edit some images for a client, who wanted to embed them into some kind of bank notes. The motives on them used to be classic copperplate engravings. So I created some macros for AP, some of which I want to share with the community. Requirements: The image needs to be square format (it will get resized to 3000 x 3000 px) The image needs to be flat (only 1 layer) The styles provided in this post need to be added prior to starting the macro I got an error message when trying to upload the files (probably due to their size, hence some google cloud links: Engraving Styles (2.2 MB) - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aHP4golVVLoidsw_aLs_EcMltfsM3oIu/view?usp=sharing Engraving Macros (1.8 MB) - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mMbZFTd-fLDuACyRCa7bne7cd0wksYUu/view?usp=sharing
  10. I have never used macros, and the way its going I may never. Here's HOWI am Trying to import the MACRO. Open Affinity PHOTO with a new as blank canvas. Add an object in case a blank canvas is not accepted - I tried a blank canvas with the same result then click on the import button This just pops an Error c:\users\parker\downloads\jr-channels.afmacros. That's it, it doesn't crash, just sits there?
  11. Hallo zusammen, ich beschäftige mich zur Zeit mit Macros, und ich habe das Problem wenn ich eine Ebene in eine andere Ebene schieben will, geht das beim Macro nicht. ich finde einfach den Befehl Abwärts Maskieren nicht. diese Ebene muss auf gleicher Höhe sein, wie eine Live -Filter Ebene (eine normale Unterebene ist kein Problem). Weis jemand wie das geht ? So sollte das Aussehen um das zu erreichen, Ein Rechteck welches unscharf ist auf dem man dann einen Text schreiben kann. Danke und Gruß Dieter
  12. Hi dear community, I hope someone can help me: I want to try batch processing for some jpg pictures in Affinity (photo persona). I worked a little bit with macros before and a saved some simple ones in the library (default), all working on jpeg. When opening the dialog "new batch job" the space where I´m supposed to choose the macros I want to use is empty ("available macros" as well as the space below that). What am I doing wrong? I am using the newest version 1.8.3 on Windows. Thanks a lot in advance for your support! Miriam
  13. 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
  14. Going through the suggested process to install the Free Macro Pack supplied by Affinity, I find that the macros are installed under the Library tab, not the Macros tab. In fact, if I go to the Macros tab and click on Import Macros, and navigate to the Free Macros Pack, none of the items in the Macros Pack will be available to choose.
  15. I want to create a batch job as a macro, means I can restart it anytime without creating the batch job each time. Example. I put some photos in a folder A. Two macros I have created apply the action AutoColor and then AutoContrast. Then, the photos are saved to the folder B. I know how to do this with a batch job, but I don´t want to create each time a new batch job, because I have to repeat this sequence of actions or macros each day. How can I do it? I mean I just want to select somewhere a batch job named "AutoColor and AutoContrast" and then the macros are executed as described. That's something I used to do in Photoshop before.
  16. I have created a macro to wrap an image around a bottle. This works very well. One option is to alter the viewpoint above or below the horizontal. If you wish to use this option, you need to expand the canvas above and below the image first to make room. Within the macro, you adjust the perspective by altering a slider in the b (or Perspective) parameter The wraparound action also shrinks the image horizontally, so that you end up with transparent areas at the sides. I thought that it would be an idea to clip these using Document > Clip Canvas, .so I added this step to the macro. Unfortunately, the macro applies the Clip Canvas before the user has a chance to alter the sliders, after which the sliders are unresponsive. Note: I would have liked to incorporate the Document > Resize Canvas. command into the macro, but, as seems to be well-known, the dimensions get baked into the macro, so I have not attempted this.

  17. The download instructions for the free macro pack say "Just click the download button to get your free macro pack. To install, open the .afmacros file or alternatively import from your Library panel." If I try to open a .afmacros file, I get a 'Failed to open file' dialog that tells me, "The file is not an Affinity document."
  18. New to Affinity. I found that I can import macros, Can you create a Macro in the iPad version? If so, how?
  19. 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.
  20. Hello Affinity I would like some advice / guidance please? I'm trying (and failing) to create a macro from existing edits, I've already edited a photo to create light beams through the trees and would like to save these edits as a preset, however when i select "Macros" if i record and select either of these layers it will say i cannot select current layer, below, but will not allow me simply create the macro from all my existing edits. I really appreciate some help here, I'm not even sure if a Macro is the answer here, but is there a way to save existing edits as a preset for future use please? Many Thanks Daryll
  21. Hey guys! Is in your plans allowing programmers to control the affinity programs with code? Like commands/actions in Python, C# or Javascript? Preferibly Python or C#. So we programmers can develop commands/actions that people can install or run to execute certain tasks. I need a definitive answer to this, to see if it's worth waiting for it, or a definitive NO! Thank you!
  22. I'm unsure if this is a bug, but I'm using the latest production version of Affinity Photo (1.8.3) on an OS X Mojave platform. I noticed that all previously imported macros had inexplicably disappeared. Retracing the steps prior to this, I had inadvertently launched a previous version of Affinity Photo (1.7.3) -- the default macros remained, but all imported macros vanished. After re-importing the macros, I quit and reopened Affinity Photo (1.8.3), and all remained in the library. Then, I decided to quit 1.8.3 and open 1.7.3 to determine if that might be the cause. I immediately shut down 1.7.3 and again launched 1.8.3. The imported macros had in fact, disappeared. I'm assuming this is a bug and it can easily be recreated by launching a back-level version. Obviously, the workaround is not launching the back-level version of Affinity Photo, but from my perspective, this shouldn't behave in this manner.
  23. Finally a dedicated professional place for Affinity Photo macros! They are even giving away a few free ones. https://affinityfilmpresets.pb.studio I've brought the Gold Pack, its perfect!
  24. 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
  25. Hi Everyone, I have been on a mission to fill the void in the Macro environment by the lack of gradient support. To this end I was introduced to Procedural Texture and saw some possibilities and started tinkering. The manifestation of this can be found in several working groupings of R,G,B Vignettes and Linear gradient macros uploaded in the Resource section that I will update as interesting developments occur. In this, I will attempt to break down some of the math and show you how I am attempting to work around my limited knowledge of geometry(has been a while since trig) to make this accessible to the beginner who wants to implement some control over the basic examples and give some direction over how to navigate this powerful tool. If you would like some immediate video immersion of outstanding examples, that I may start from or point to, see Graphicxtras.com on youtube. If anyone has anything to add/correct/questions, comments, etc. please jump in...this is only meant as a supplement to the Affinity Photo Procedural Texture help section that can leave the beginner a little overwhelmed. So, here is the first installment of my experiences. And certainly, if anyone wants to use these explanations in video format please feel free...just post a link for everyone to see it. Procedural Texture 101 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Procedural_texture These are some common definitions of elements of an equation w = width of document h = height of document x = horizontal axis y = vertical axis rx = relative x(position) to upper left hand corner expressed as (0,0) horizontal axis (rx,0) ry = relative y(position) to upper left hand corner expressed as (0,0) vertical axis (0,ry) R = red channel G = green channel B = blue channel A = alpha channel Relative x and y (rx,ry) x and y coordinates can also be specified as values relative to any starting point on the screen or any subset of the screen such as an image. On the Web, each clickable area of an image map is specified as a pair of x and y coordinates relative to the upper left-hand corner of the image. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cartesian_coordinate_system osc(input, parameter) The following syntax follows the typical convention of function(input, parameter) where the function( = osc ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave_function https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wave_equation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscillation_(mathematics) osci(input, parameter) This function example represents the oscillation over the set (in this case an interval) of the function( = osci ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interval_(mathematics) This example is formula from the Checkered preset osci(rx*c/w,ry*c/w) variable c(Z) produces squares + addition of variable a(Z) to control vertical axis osci(rx*c/w,ry*a/w) c(Z) produces horizontal rows a(Z) produces vertical rows example. c=0 (no horizontal rows) c=1 (1 horizontal row) c=25 (25 horizontal rows) c=5, a=5 (square with the size of 5 rows horiz and 5 rows vert)(effectively enlarging 5x larger than (1x1) c=5, a=1 (rectangle with the size of 5 rows horiz and 1 row vert) etc. See video example of procedural texture squares at Graphicxtras.com I will update with macros of these examples as I go along, or if you want to get started go to procedural texture and find the checkered preset and start experimenting. orig softlight 50 checkered R,G,B enhanced* * enhanced with Dave's Shifter Macros(slight tweeks with all 3) looks like candy. (These are free macros available thru his InAffinity channel on youtube. This one came out today...) Enjoy and Experiment - T V
