  1. Hi, when clicking on any color while an open curve is selected, it is filled with that color as it is closed one. Is there an option not to fill open curves? Maybe this feature should be added on "Pen" and "Pencil" context toolbars?
  2. Hi, I suppose this feature is already asked, but I can't located it. Anyway, there is need for such a default layer created automatically with any new document where we can easily control if they are shown/hidden, printable/unprintable, locked/unlocked... or simply drag an object to this layer to act as a guide.
  3. Hi, only in Designer Beta, rectangular shape together with rounded corner rectangular and elipse are not included in "Shapes". There is also no "cat" shape in Photo Beta and Publisher Beta.
  4. Hi, would you be so kind and make Procedural Textures' Presets -> Live?
  5. When I start either Affinity Photo or Affinity Designer on my iPad Air 2, the main screen loads and all is fine. When I try to create a new document, the app crashes. The same happens when I try to open an existing document. This did not happen before the most recent updates (Designer: 1.6.4, Photo: 1.6.10), and now it does. I am currently unable to do any work using Affinity products on my iPad.
  6. Hi, I'm considering getting AP for iPad but prefer to use Fujifilm X-T20 compressed raw files, as these are half the size of normal Fuji raw. However, for some reason, compressed is not supported by Apple's own raw converter. Any chance that Serif's own raw engine will be made available on the iPad version of AP ? Or do I need to go uncompressed, full-size raw to get it to work on an iPad Pro? Thanks, Simon
  7. Dear staff, i've done a quick test on a photo to select subject including Hair selection but noticed there is no real improvement with that related tools. Maybe it works with kind of things to select but when it comes with Hair it simply not that good. OKay maybe i'm doing it wrong but i believe here you need to improve it at the level of introducing a fresh new way of subject/person selection with a much detailed menu that will help us to tweak things to get the best we can. i often deal with photos like many here (while i'm not good at photo) so not having such kind of operation working optimal or even painless generate high frustration. Please bring to light what you have hidden so we can test it and help you make it better before APhoto goes on sales. I've attached the picture i tried with, just try on your side and if you are successful with it please share the method. Blessings !
  8. Basically what the title says- pattern stamp tool request similar to photoshop, as an extension of the clone stamp tool concept. Texture samples could be applied to the pattern stamp, which can then be used as an overlay brush or something. I would also like for the joint ability to sample from images to create new patterns and textures to turn into brushes.
  9. Hello, I searched the forum for info on the subject, and found one comment suggesting we write to our font management software companies requesting plugins to use with Designer and Photo (and Publisher). I wrote Insider Software, the makers of FontAgent, and this is the reply: "Manually activating fonts in FontAgent should make them show up in the Affinity applications, but at this time Serif (the company the makes the Affinity products) does not have a way for developers to make plug-ins. Without that ability, we do not have a way to auto-activate fonts like we do with the Adobe applications. If/when they do add plug-in support we will take a close look at that opportunity." Manually activating fonts will work while I'm learning the workflow, but never in a production scenario. Insider says y'all don't have a plugin structure, is that true? And if it is or not, can this be accomplished, so our font management solutions can work with your very fine products? Thanks.
  10. Hello: I have an existing EPS logo I'm adding to a photo illustration and want to shrink it first, then maybe rasterize it. But when I shrink it, the strokes remain the same thickness and do not scale proportionally. If I were working in Adobe Illustrator, this is a simple preference that can be checked or unchecked. But I can't find any sort of preference like that in Affinity Photo. I tried opening it in Designer, but it similarly didn't have an option to keep strokes the same proportion. So how do I keep the vector strokes the same proportion when scaling? This is one of the MANY frustrations I've had with Photo! While Photo does have easier ways to edit PHOTOS, it's hard for me to use it for GRAPHIC raster-based illustrations the way I did with Photoshop (lack of bitmap mode, lack of raster stroke selection, etc.) Thanks.
  11. Hi, As I explain it in my previous post (MacOS + AP + Nik Collection FULL FONCTIONALS ...), Selective Tool plugin can't work in Affinity Photo because it open a scripts panel in Photoshop ; but most of then can be reproduce with simple macros in Affinity Photo ... So I did it ! 1- At first, you have to install Nik Collection plugins for Affinity Photo, some YouTube videos explain clearly how to do it. 2- You have to correct *.config files has I explain here. 3- Install "NIK Collection Selective Tool.afmacros" How it work ? Generaly, the "real" Selectiv Tool copye and merges all the layers, then it creates a full mask (black) befor calling the plugin you select with it. When you've finished to work in the plugin's panel, you go back in the editing software and you just have to erase parts of the mask with a white brush to reveale the effect ... NIK Collection Selective Tool.afmacros works exactly the same way. Note : you don't have to use Selective Tool to work with Nik Collection plugins ; this tool is just a "plus". Enjoy it !

  12. Hello everyone, From today i believe i have to start sharing few of our design works (actually i'm working alone but i do build a team from time to time depending on project size ) Most of our client/requesters are Church based and we really enjoy doing stuffs for them but what you will se here is more about Smarty Studio standing with other studio/teams together into what is to become Congolese Design Style. Well each country have it's own style of design but Congo doesn't have a proper thus most of Congolese designers simply clone/copy styles from everywhere. This is a beginning, please your inputs on each design palet/kit will be of great help and will help us improving better. Blessings !
  13. Hi, in Photoshop when we enter values in any field in "Image Size..." all other values are automatically changed, which is not a case in Photo. There is also "Reset" option when ALT button is pressed. Can we expect these changes in v. 1.7 in Photo?
  14. Hello, Just editing a raw photo and I used Blemish removal (worked quite well.) I went to edit my second photo and the Blemish removal spot where on this new photo. How do i remove these ?
  15. Hello Affinity Team, Is there a way to preview the cursor/brush size while painting or brushing? I understand the iPad doesn't have hover support but at least while brushing, I hope to see the boundaries of the brush. Thank you so much!
  16. Affinity Online Help Hello all, we're happy to be able to offer you an online version of the in-app help! Access Photo & Designer Help here: https://affinity.help Here are some of the additional features we're able to implement as a result of having proper browser support: Dynamic language switching: The help will determine your language and (if it's available) serve you a localised copy of the help. If you prefer to read in another language, however, you'll find a combo box at the bottom left which will enable you to change languages - and stay on the page you're currently reading. Print: Sounds simple, but with full browser support we can now implement printing of the topic pages. The print icon in the bottom left will give you a nicely formatted printout of the current topic. Share: Clicking the clipboard icon will copy the current topic's URL to your clipboard, which means you can easily point other people towards topics that may help them. Responsive: The help was responsive anyway, including off-canvas menu functionality so you could collapse the window and still read a topic, but this is taken further in this version of the help. The help is formatted nicely and usable even on a 4" iPhone SE screen. With this online version you'll be able to print out topics and view them on your tablets/phones, which are two of the most common requests when it comes to help feedback. This is currently no search functionality - we are aware it would be useful and are considering possible solutions. As always, if you have any feedback or find any issues with this online version, please let us know! Hope you find it useful.
  17. Hi, Wondering if there is a tutorial on how to adjust bright light coming into a room through a window. Thanks!
  18. Hello all, I'm trying to create a photo with a text overlay for print, however, the print person I'm working with says the files I'm sending over don't scale properly. I suppose that means that the text graphics are not vector. Is there a way to do this in Photo? It's just two words inside a rectangle border. Thanks in advance!

    Crash

    The Previous Report Crashed on me 3 times in about the last 1/2 hour. Not doing anything special. In one case just touching up a photo. One time it happened when I was airbrushing some colour (using paint tool). The others were in different situations (but I don't remember exactly what I was doing. It shows the box for an un-handled exception and once I close that, it goes into a busy state and doesn't respond. I have been using Affinity Photo for a while (on previous releases) and didn't have any problems (nothing else changed at my end). Tonight's Problem It crashed a couple of times. It was similar to the previous issues in that it involved rapid mouse movement and clicks (doing selective erase of a layer to reveal parts of an underlying layer). This time, the memory usage in the machine wasn't especially high (about 65%). It sent you a crash report. The reference is: 9b3df74-de6c-4bd2-9cd2-80d35f170168

  21. I've revived a few photos from my archive, using some texture images I've collected -- mostly from legitimate free sources with no copyright issues. These three are of an old trumpet I bought a few years ago. It's no longer playable (and I couldn't play it if it were) but I thought it was photogenic. These three pics have two texture layers, added one at a time, and I tried various combinations of blend mode and transparency till I found one I liked. I think the first one and the third one have something of a nineteen-fifties feel (I was there ) ... This one reminds me of an album cover, but I can't think which one. Do let me know if you do! Here's the first one in afphoto format if you want to see exactly what I did ... 0920z.afphoto
  22. I installed Affinity Photo on my second computer and now it doesn't start anymore. Affinity Photo doesn't even start when only one of the machines is turned on. I deleted the %APPDATA%/Affinity/Photo/ folder on both machines and it still doesn't work. I also reinstalled the program twice and it doesn't work. It just crashes without an error.
  23. Hi Affinity Team, I am having a few issues in importing my CR2 RAW files from my Canon 800D Camera. I am using the Apple (Core Image RAW) engine for RAW Files and it causes the images to display like the example picture attached below. I have never had this issue previously before importing images from my Canon 800D Camera and I think it has only started since updating my Macbook Pro to the latest macOS Mojave. I can strangely tho be able to import a Panorama or Stack using those same RAW files and the issue doesn't happen. I can also load images using the Serif Labs Engine with no issues also however it does remove most of the colours from the image for some reason and has so since the beginning on any RAW File. I am not sure if the Issue is Affinity Related or Apple Related and would love this to be fixed or find away to fix it. THANKS!!!
  24. Due to many reasons (MS can't update their software without issues, threat of having to pay monthly license fee for Windows 10, and I just plain like linux, it's faster (even my internet download speed has improved 120% in speed tests) + much more) I have switched over my desktop to Linux 100% of the time. Every program that I "needed" from Windows runs fine in Wine or has a linux version to use. Every program accept Affinity photo and Designer. I have tried the installation .exe which kills over immediately with a repetitive error "Exception: ResourceSection::ResourceSection". Copying the files from a Windows installation also throws exceptions. Is there any hope of a linux version of Affinity sometime in the near future? If the answer is no (and I hope it isn't), do you have any way of a workaround to get both Photo and Designer working in Linux?
  25. Hello Everyone, I'm happy to share this with all of You today. Well i'm really sorry for sending this so late but i wasn't sure i could share it here but i hope you will take 4min to watch as our 1st video demo there was done with Affinity Designer MacOs. Your comments will be of great help to me making the Chan better, there is still more to come and be published but let's first see how to make this one even better. https://goo.gl/wrJFn3 Blessings.
