  1. Using AP 1.6.4.104 on Win10 Pro 64-bit (build 17134.228), running 32GB on AMD Ryzen 5 1600 six-core at 3.20GHz) I was learning from your tutorials and when learning about masking when I used the Flood Seletion tool, AP appeared to stall with the message of "Not Responding" at the top of the screen. Can't believe I don't have enough memory, so what could it be. Only AP and Firefox (v.61.0.2, 64bit) are running. Any thoughts???
  2. I've always loved Lightzone's Zone Mapper - which is based loosely on Ansel Adam's zone/tone idea. The idea is extremely intuitive .. but. the execution has an efficient and productive UI. Despite having used Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, Krita, Affinity Photo, etc .. I still keep the free Lightzone installed for the zone (tone) mapper. (I also love the very easy and intuitive shape tool which acts as a mask for applying any filter or operation .. with adjustable non-destructive shape and edge transition) Here's a set of video tutorials https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xq1tyuZXbpo&list=PLUECp8xv0O0DPqRL8Qgrs6ZQVVvrGfZPP I really wish Affinity did this .. instead of the less intuitive set of filters which seem to have a high barrier to expertise .. and seem very inefficient in terms of desktop real estate ... their retained settings are counterintuitive. Just honest friendly feedback.
  3. Every time I want to start affinity photo it crashes. After first installation it had the same problems but at once open a file direkt in affinity it starts. Now the same bug comes up. It does not help to install an older version, every time the same bug. Designer and Publisher works great and even in publisher I can switch to the photo persona and it works. Maybe some base files are corrupted any chance to delete them or is there a safe start option for photo. If I open affinity photo by apple photo edit in affinity photo it starts and works, but only for this session. I am working on a MacBook Air 2020 with the newest updates of BIGSUR and Affinity but problem was existing before.
  4. The official MAS downloaded Designer v1.9.1 update tells BETA (?) ... BTW, same for the Photo pendant!
  5. Is there a way to convert a Pen Tool path you make into a selection. There is a selection from layer I can do, but I would like to just convert the path into a selection, without having to create extra layers.
  6. Hi all, I’m just curious more than anything, ive always had an issue with batch processing. All I use it for is to take my AFPhoto files and batch convert them to JPEGS. I find that no matter the size of the job my iMac crashes. Even if it’s five images my Mac full on freezes and eventually shuts down and restarts. I don’t get a kernel panic in the logs but it’s clearly what’s happening. Does anyone else find this happens or have any other ideas so that I can convert with out having to do them one by one.
  7. An oddly specific bug I just discovered in Photo - unsure of whether this shows up in Designer too. While sketching out an ornate frame design, I used the symmetry tool with a brush, and everything proceeded as usual. I then used Shift to create a straight line and noticed that the stroke automatically coloured certain parts red - screenshot attached. I tried a few different brushes and ended up with the same result (as you can see), but only when using my tablet pen/stylus - this didn't happen when clicking with the mouse and holding Shift. The layers I worked on didn't have any FX applied, and red was not a colour I had selected (my foreground and background colours were black and white). I've done a quick screen recording for reference: https://youtu.be/blPZMQsAhNQ It's not embedded as a glitch into the document/file though, as I can easily use a "Colour Overlay" effect to change it back to black.
  8. Hi Serif, it looks like the issue I reported back in March was fixed just partially. The same issue occurs when trying to zoom when using the Mesh Warp Tool - see the screencast below. Thanks for a fix in advance.
  9. Hi, On W10 and with AP 1.0.0.932, i get several strage observations: Blend ranges give strange results. i tried to limit the recolor on one or two channels, e.g. by reducing red channel participation to zero. The result leads always to no recolor at all.This might be by design, but then the GUI shuld give a hint, e.g. only allowing to adjust master, and no individual channels. The Blend range dialog appears in the middle of the screen first. But when i try to move it, it goes straight to the top, and cannot removed from the top. Might be related (side effect) to the LG / DELL OnScreen Control Performance with OpenCL aktive is poor, much slower than without OpenCL. I have a capable GTX 1080, new driver, etc. Photo becomes totally laggy, sometimes hanging, often need to wait several seconds for every mouse click. rainbow.afphoto
  10. Now on Skillshare here: http://skl.sh/2GjWV8q Note: I have renamed this class. It was "Create a Space-Themed Illustration". This class covers a range of easy to master skills, from cooking, to 3D rendering, to digital painting. Part 1 – The Pancake Moon In Part 1 of the class, you will learn how to: make pancakes in your kitchen using Affinity Photo, make equi-rectangular projection texture and bump maps out of the pancake's cratered surface using Cheetah 3D, wrap the texture and bump maps around a sphere, and render your pancake moon. We will be using Affinity Photo to create our texture and bump maps, and Cheetah 3D to render the pancake moon. Part 2 – Painting a Starry Nebula With Affinity Photo, you will learn how to: use shapes to create stars and simple lens flares use the standard set of Affinity Photo brushes to paint star fields and a nebula composite your moon with your starry nebula, and fine tune the lighting of your moon. Here is the permanent link to the class: http://skl.sh/2ooIWa9 Note: This link requires a subscription to Skillshare. Please use this link if you already have a subscription, or you are intending to sign up to Skillshare. I'm not sure what the current deal is, but Skillshare sometimes offer free access to all their classes for a limited time. Links to other space-themed classes by the following Skillshare teachers are available from this class. But wait, there's more... Free Access Link: http://skl.sh/2ogF9L2 Note: This free access link is limited to the first 12 people who use it and is valid up until the 28th of February 2018. It only provides free access to this class. You may need to sign up, and it's free. It's best viewed on a desktop browser or tablet. I hope you enjoy the class. Disclaimer: I have no affiliations with Serif nor Cheetah 3D. This is not an official Serif nor Cheetah 3D class.

  11. I don't seem to be able to get Photo or Designer to start after switching to 1.9. I tried to look at the prob -- it seems they crash right after scanning the fonts, but unable to determine why. I'll attach a procmon trace in xml format. The 257MB trace shrank to 6.7M in 7z format. Running Win7SP1x64 on an 8-core (Hyper threading disabled), 96G RAM, w/6-10GB GPU mem on a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. I haven't used either product extensively since the long time to startup made me lose interest in doing anything. I keep hoping that someone will take the font performance issue seriously, such that it is eliminated, since the serif apps are the only ones with such a problem on every startup, even though I almost never used the font features in photoshop (not a big part of my workflow). They have gotten better, but I note that many of the fonts are read twice and for some reason the font-reading process does a disk-status call with each font lookup, so it doesn't look like much time has been spent trying to make it efficient or fast, not to mention doing the whole font read-in once and caching it -- then updating the cache only when new fonts have been added. Also besides reading the font resources in a background thread, could also get some serious improvement by splitting up the job across multiple cores and merging the results via shared memory, though even a merge-sort on 'N' result files (N maybe # of cores) would likely give a strong speedup. Of course being the masochist that I am, I'll startup both photo+designer at same time because I don't know them very well and not sure which has which features that I might want to try. But now, doesn't want to startup at all. Any ideas? Especially since both crash now? :-( photo-procmon.7z Designer-CrashReports.7z photo_CrashReports.7z
  12. Hi, I'm getting confused how Affinity Photo handles "Color Formats" like RGB8, RGB16, RGB32. Question 1: How many colors are displayed for and RGB8 Color Format? To test how many colors are visible, i created a very simple test document: Create new 3840x2160 document with RGB8 and P3 profile Create a procedural text filter which creates the smoothest possible gradient from black to white. This will create steps of 1/3840 create a second procedural text filter which creates steps of 1 /256 (and is adjustable by the slides for later steps) Now the fun part begins. If you disable / enable the top layer you will see visible changes - meaning Photo will display a gradient with smaller steps than possible in 8 bit. Changing the blend mode of the top layer to "difference" will confirm both layers are different. This is a surprise for me. You may need a levels adjustment to emphasize the difference. Actually it seems like Photo is rendering a much higher color channel depth than 8 bit - even if the pixel layer is restricted to 8 bit. Is there a good explanation for this observation? My assumption is that RGB8 layers are strictly limited to 8 bit depth for each color channel, and only 256 different gray scales are possible. But the observations above prove it wrong.
  13. Some time ago I presented a formula to plug into Equations to warp text along a wavy baseline. I promised to create a macro to perform this, but never got round to it. Well here is that macro and a library containing it. Wavy Text.afmacro Wavy Text.afmacros The transformation is just a sine/cosine curve: y=y-(h*a/3)*(b*sin(360*x/w/c)+(1-b)*cos(360*x/w/c)) The a parameter determines the amplitude. The default is a=0.5, which creates a wave that reaches about half way to the top and bottom of the layer. The b parameter shifts the position of te wave along the horizontal axis. The c parameter affects the wavelength. Reducing c gives more waves along the x-axis. If you start with a text layer such as: and apply the macro with the default parameters, you get: The macro is designed to operate on a text object on a background. It needs the background to give it room. It begins by rasterizing the text to a pixel layer. It uses the height and width of the background layer to determine the amplitude and wavelength, not the height and width of the text itself. To use this, I would suggest creating a new document of a size to hold the text, then warp it, then place or copy it into the target document with an appropriate blending mode. John
  14. Hi all, I'm trying to figure out how to add new parameters to the Live Procedural Texture but I can't get my head around it. Basically I would like to use the Smoothed bars preset and add a rotation parameter and a way to control the thickness of the black bars and white bars independently, is this possible? Thanks in advance, Juan
  15. Hi, im new using Affinity apps, and start my 90 trials. Im using Affinity Photo rn, install was fine, but the problem is when i make new document. the app suddenly closed first i installed it on my File Drive (D) it's force closed, then i tried installed it on C drive, and still force closed. Can someone help me?
  16. I use curves in Photo a LOT. Since I updated to 1.9, I can't access curves from the adjustment window. This is all I get now. Am I missing something?
  17. Hi, when using a RGB document and then a curves layer with LAB color space, affinity becomes totally slow. I added a DOF filter like James Ritson in his 1.9 Youtube today, when you mode the center it takes about 1 second to update. rainbow lab curves slow.afphoto
  18. 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!
  19. Hi, since Release 1.9, the effect of lens correction seems to be very limited: rotation to -10..+10, and you can't enter higher values As i use lens correction rotation regularly as it provides a much finer control (0.1 degree) compared to crop or layer transformation, this is a step back from +/-25 % before (until 1.8.5) Hor/vert shows value of +/+100, but effect is extremley limited. I have many picture which require far more room for adjustment. If i could get a life filter in photo persona which would allow these transformation with reasonable range (rotate +/-180 degree, hor/vert to get at least 45 degree angle), i could live with the "reduced" state in develop persona.
  20. Hi, I'm new to use Affinity Photo and Affinity Design. Till now I used Photoshop. I'm missing some function in Affinity. Can someone tell me how to rotate the canvas in Affinity Photo and how to change the Brush size with the mouse like Photoshop.
  21. ON1 emailed me today promoting their latest plugin. "The new version includes performance enhancements and new features that make it even easier and faster to resize photos without losing sharpness and detail." My question is, given that Affinity Photo has photo enlarging features, do I need this as well? Does anyone know how they compare? I ask because some of my photo-based artwork looks fine at 5"x7" but I want to create professional art prints at 11x14. Thanks.
  22. Good morning, I have tried to install the new version of Affinity Photo (1.7.1.). Unfortunately, the only option / button I get is "Update" (see screenshot) although I cannot find any Affinity Photo software, version, etc on the computer. As soon as I click "Update", another window pops up, saying that there is an "Invalid Path". I cannot install the programm. I have changed a hard disk about a year ago due to technical issues but have uninstalled all old software. How can I do a new, fresh, clean installation? Thanks in advance for any advices!!!
  23. On the 9.7″ screen of my iPad Air 2 there is insufficient room to display the descriptions of some items offered for download. Also affects version 1.9.0 of Affinity Photo for iPad.
  24. is there a way to create “half drop” repeat patterns in version 1.9 or does it limit you to only single image simple even patterns? How about patterns with multiple images? Also, Can I import other elements from another file or another layer to incorporate it into the repeat pattern layer?
