  1. Hi Folks, one question: i exported a 2 page testfile pdf with pulisher. Even though the 2 pages have the same the content elements/type (cause i copied them), in the exported pdf the right/second page has sharp text, the left page on the other hand is pixelated. What i am doing wrong:-)? Greetings from Germany Jo 20190925_Broschuere_148x148_2TEST.afpub 20190925_Broschuere_148x148_2TEST.pdf
  2. Using Designer 1.7.1.404, running on Win10Pro, v.1903 OS BUild 18.362.239. Everything has been working well. Just tried to create some test logos and variations. Used Artistic Text Tool for the text bits. On some versions, I used the smoke brushes purchased through Affinity. Text had the effects of Outer Shadow and Outer Glow. I tried having the text elements grouped and ungrouped. The on-screen views looked great. I saved each version before trying to export. I viewed the export results in MS Photos, the elements were quite edgy/pixelated. In MS Paint, Photos and 3D Paint, the images appeared blurry. In AutoDesk SketchBook, the image was pixelated. When imported into WORD, the images were quite blurry. When I exported the finished versions in svg, jpg and png formats, the results were terrible: pixelated, edgy, and not of the correct sizing. In the case of svg exports, the text effects looked odd (squares of shading around each letter - see example attached). I then tried many versions of removing brushes, changing fonts, removing text effects, starting afresh from scratch, changing resolution (using both 72 and 300 dpi in RGB). I've never had this issue before, so am really confused as to what is different or what I did wrong. Could use some input. Thanks in Advance!

  3. I've been using AP for about 2 years and I've never had a single problem until I updated to 1.7 where there's a very noticeable pixelated look in everything (text, pen tool, shapes, etc) and I also seem to have this line using gradients found also in the linked post. Do keep in mind though that I got a new PC around the same time as 1.7 so it could also be that but I'm unsure. I've posted my settings and an example. I'm not sure whether this is the correct place to ask this or not so please correct me if I'm wrong.
  4. When rotating the canvas (View - Rotate Left/Right) the artwork previews/appears pixelated and distorted on the artboard - almost like the strokes and objects get fuzzy outlines. I'm not sure if it's a bug, but its been present since the day I started using Designer and Photo - even vector shapes get jagged edge previews when the canvas is rotated. I've attached a preview to show what I mean (you may need to zoom in to have a better look), but I'm sure anyone who has used the canvas rotation feature is aware of this. Is there a way to fix this? Any help would be appreciated.
  5. Hi, Feeling a bit daft and its driving me nuts, When I create a document in design using letters with styles (wood effect, etc) in affinity its sharp, as soon as I import it (pdf) its pixelated when I enlarge it. This only happens when I use styles not when I use curves or flat letters. I've changed rgb settings, document size, everything. What am I doing wrong please. Thanks Just noticed, this happens with any effect on anything (curves, fonts with 3D etc)
  6. I imported a file from my photos folder into Publisher and everything was fine. Printed it all out, worked great. When I went back to the Publisher file today it look extremely pixelated. Can someone help me as to what is going on? I didn't move then image in the Finder (if that even makes any difference.)
  7. Hi, I have spent hours trying to figure out why the edges on this logo when exported become rough & pixelated. The logo will be used for print & web - I have tried multiple Document Settings including; Type: Web - 1280 px by 800 px 72 DPI & 300 DPI, Type: Print - 2000px, 3000px - 300 DPI. All coming out distored, pixelated or with black lines. I have also tried to rasterize which didnt work. Is there something I am missing here? Document set up quality? I'm stuck! I just need clean crisp edges on the logo. I have attached images of Affinity view screen with 100% zoom along with image of exported PNG, PDF & JPG Thanks!
  8. I have a .psd created in photoshop elements. It opens ok in Affinity photo. I am having trouble getting the exported pdf to show text as a vector (with zero pixelation when zoomed in). Can you please tell me what settings I should use during export to make sure text has zero pixelation when zoomed in? When I export the same .psd using photoshop elements, the resulting .pdf renders the text as a vector so I know its not a problem with my design setup. Also my print company recommends pdf/x-4 as the output profile but that preset in affinity photo produces a text with pixelated edges. The only change I made to the psd file in affinity photo was a conversion to cmyk color profile. I would like to start using affinity photo by default but need to be able to confidently render psd files to pdf with the text output as vector with no pixelation. Also I notice when I change the setting to "no rasterization" when outputting to pdf from .psd, it ignores any clipping masks applied so the image is not as intended. Can you please advise settings to try in this situation. Thanks so much.
  9. Hello, I just download the free trial for Affinity Designer. I work with a lot of stock artwork, and most of the files are EPS. When I open any EPS in AD, the images are horribly pixelated. Is there a work-around? I'm so tired of Creative Cloud and the total inability to get tech support. Really hoping I can find an alternative! Cheri :D
  10. I have Affinity Designer and Photo for Mac desktop, and I'm a newbie to both. I tried importing a PDF (attached) that I need to edit into both Designer and Photo. In both programs the PDF is layered, which is great since that means I can edit it easily. However, the topographic map layer becomes very pixelated. If I do my edits and then export as a PDF or PNG (or any file type that I've tried), the topographic map layer remains pixelated. This layer looks smooth when I open the PDF in a viewer. It is also smooth and not pixelated when I open the PDF using Photoshop (I don't have Illustrator). However, in Photoshop the PDF doesn't open with layers. Years ago I know that my partner managed to do some basic edits to this PDF without any pixelation, I believe with Inkscape, so it should be possible. Can someone let me know what I'm doing wrong in Affinity? Thanks!! Test.pdf
  11. I have recently purchased affinity photo. Whenever i open a raw image and then develop it so i can edit the image in photo persona, the image becomes noticeably pixelated. Any help? Thanks, Zach
  12. Hi, I downloaded an EPS file from Freepik, and when I open the file seems like all vectors got distorted (like pixels) and impossible to edit or work with it. On illustrator the file opens OK (just to check the problem is not the file) Could you please advise? You can download the same file on this link https://www.freepik.com/free-vector/abstract-background-green-tones_1064803.htm#term=green background&page=1&position=2
  13. Any advice on the best settings for performance in preferences on Photo - memory usage etc? I've had a quick search but can't find anything on here. I have 64bit Windows system with 16gb ram, Intel i5-2500K 3.30ghz, with Nvidia GTX GeForce 1050 ti. Current settings are attached. My problem has been generally sluggish performance, waiting for effects to play catch-up with Retina Rendering at Highest Quality and a far too pixelated image when it's set to low quality.

    Cutting Out Example but Pixelated

    So after learning how to use the Cutting Out method from a video here under tutorials, I used two images, one was close to 1000x? pixels and the other over 4000x? pixels. After moving the cut out deer from one image to the building image, I see it is highly pixelated when enlarged. even though the finished image when exported as a jpg, was lowered to near the 1000x? pixel image size. To recap, I used an image 1/4th the size (deer) of the image of the building, then saved saved by reducing 75% and still have major pixelated deer on building. What did I miss? And now I'm editing to add I see you won't be able to see the pixelization as enlarging is not allowed, but its there.
  15. Hi, finally the moment has come that I have to ask for your help. Untill now I have always managed not to take your time, but now I am simply stuck. I am trying to make an HDR using 3 perfectly aligned photos of different exposures... Ususally I have no problem in doing that but in this case the result is terribly "posterised". Below are the source photos, and two results - one with all merge options unchecked and one with all options checked (by options I mean "align" and "remove ghosts" etc.). Does anyone have any idea of what might be causing such behaviour?
  16. I've the following problem: I just wanted to make a simple "symbol" with a frame (with a little bit bigger black contour 1pt) and 4 lines inside, somehow grey (and a little bit thinner 0.3pt). I could manage to design it quite fast (using a rectangle and 4 lines - using the Pen tool), but when printed, I had to find out, that the inner lines are somehow pixelated, when I use opacy or any kind of grey color for the contours. The black one is fine (see attached pic). I'm new to Affinity Designer, so I hope, it's just a problem because I did something wrong. Anyone any idea - what's the problem? By the way, the printer is not the problem. I checked it with other programs. There it works well. Test.afdesign
  17. Upscaling low-res pixel layers don't get resampled correctly. They come out pixelated. Please check this thread for more information.
  18. Hi, I'm fairly new to using Affinity Designer after switching over from Adobe Illustrator. I am basically working on a document which has vector/JPEG objects inserted. It is intended for print, but I would also require a digital version for web purposes. When I export the document as a PDF for print at 300dpi, it seems fine; the JPEG images look sharp as well as the vectors (just as everything looks when working on the document at 100% scale). But when I export the same document as a PDF for web at 72dpi, all of my vectors are nice and sharp, the document is the right size, but my JPEG images become extremely pixelated. I've attached a snippet from an exported web PDF. Document information: Type: Print Page Preset: A3 300DPI Any ideas as to why this might be happening?
  19. I'm having a weird problem regarding printing directly in affinity designer. If i place an image, which have at least 300dpi and print it directly from AD it will be pixelated. If i export it for pdf and print from the pdf to the printer the image is fine. Attached i have 2 examples of that. Am I doing anything wrong? Or it is really a bug? Using 1.5.4 on Mac OS Sierra. It's a little bit annoying the need to export to pdf a document that i will use once. Regardless of that i'm using it for about a month, almost every day and i'm really happy with it. Great work.
  20. Hi, I have been browsing the forums for about two hours now attempting to solve the low quality export of vectors (with transparency) I'm experiencing. I adjusted to bicubic and lanczos in the export window, I've tried resizing the vector. Attached below are rasterized transparent png and gifs, plus a pdf of the original vector, exactly how AD exported them. On a side note, I'm not exactly sure why this is so difficult to accomplish: to create a smooth realized export of a vector image for the web. Super easy and intuitive in very old versions of adobe illustrator (back in 2004). What am I missing/not understanding?? GIF PNG PDF clipart.pdf
  21. I exported my vector design in Affinity Designer as a PNG file, and the graphic is pixelated. How can I resolve this issue? This is intended for web display. Also, when I tried to edit this in Affinity Photo using the "Edit in Photo" feature, the graphic displayed as pixelated too. How can this issue be resolved as well?
  22. Hi, when I import my PNG logo it gets pixelated regardless of dimensions I import. The same png logo looks great on my web page and other materials. I also use it in Sketch3 App and it looks great as well. Any Ideas what do I do wrong?
  23. Hi all, does anyone have a clue why the raster parts of this pdf get pixelated so badly when I import it into Affinity Designer? Thanks! hubobaffinity_example.pdfpdf_import.tiff
  24. Hey there, first of all I would like to compliment the Affinity team for such a fantastic work on the user interface of both of the apps. They're really beautiful and feel really native and modern. A lot of little details make them a joy to work with. I have one question though, and it's related to the one thing that has bothered me a bit: I have a Retina MBP, and on both Affinity Photo and Designer, as I'm painting, moving objects around or typing, I get these "pixelated"/non-retina visuals that stay on for like half a second, before the normal "retina" graphics come back. My understanding is that this is some sort of optimization to make the interface more responsive and real time as you edit the document. Is that correct? If so, is it possible to disable this optimization entirely? I found it to be really distracting, and I'd rather have the document update be a little slower than have the whole viewport switch between retina/non-retina graphics constantly. Note: I'm currently on El Capitan Beta, so I had to install the Affinity Photo and Designer Betas. This could also be an issue with the betas/something that is not on the release versions... In that case should I report a bug? I can provide a screen capture if you can't reproduce this issue. Thanks.
  25. I just fired up Affinity Photo Beta for the first time and had this user experience: Created a new pixel layer. Selected a brush, painted a line. Response time was not solid, brush felt floaty, jittery, and imprecise. Found no pressure sensitive thickness controls. Selected a thinner brush. Brush displayed with breaks in line. Despondancy set in. Started seeking solution. Zoomed in. Line became clear. Drew thinner line, line displayed with zoom artifacts like breaks in the line. Zoomed in further, display showed line clearly. Took screenshots, came here, posted this. Depending on response time and inclusion of error suggestion, my confidence in your company and products will be influenced. I know you're a smaller team and have a large overhead of duties to perform, and perhaps someone has already mentioned this bug, but any notice of it's receipt from a person, not a robot formula reply, will boost confidence. Personal care and service is where the line is drawn between successful and unsuccessful enterprises. Thanks for trying.
