  1. Where are gradient map presets stored? And how can they be loaded once they have been created? I've made a number of presets. I've clicked the "Add preset" button and typed in a name. Something has happened (I guess). And poof. No more preset. What am I missing?
  2. Für mein Fotobuchprojekt verwende ich immer die gleichen weißen Ränder für Fotos und auch immer den gleichen Schattenwurf. Leider muss ich es für jedes Bild wieder neu einstellen. Es gibt sicherlich ein einfachen Weg, eine einmal erstellte Einstellung immer wieder aufzurufen. Wie mache ich das? Für my photobookprojekt I use aways the same white Frame an the same shadow. Unfortunately I have to adjust it for every new Foto. There is certainly a simple way to call the adjustment again. How can I do it? Thanks!
  3. Hey guys, why doesn't anyone talk about the lost adjustment presets after the update? I can't be the only one missing all his presets, can I? Since the update about two weeks ago I have had massive problems recovering any of my adjustment presets. (Screenshot of the palette is attached in case you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about. Yes, I opened a photo and clicked on the labels – they're empty.) Under the section LUT alone there were 35 presets that I personally saved and collected over months and years! I already had similar experiences with older beta versions of the apps, where certain folders could be copied so that all user-defined settings are available again. But it doesn't seem to work this time. To be honest, this situation makes me more and more disgruntled. I wonder why this palette, which was included in the programs from the beginning, has no export function yet. Damn, even the crop tool has a function for exporting defined ratios. Even later implemented functions like macros or assets can be exported! Why not curve or white-balance presets?! Now excuse my little psych-out. Fortunately I have a Time Machine Backup, but even if I recover the data from it, I can only work with the penultimate officially released version – but that's obviously not a solution, who wants to work with an outdated version if there's a shiny new release with better features? This btw. isn't just related to Photo, but also Designer. And it's not only on Mac, but also on Windows – I checked. So if anyone has a solution to this problem, please - please- share it with the community! Or just let me know if anyone else has this problem. Cheers MrDoodlezz
  4. In Affinity Photo 1.6.12 , therefore in the previous version very helpful presets were available in the Studio feature Adjustment. Now, in 1.7.1, the presets are missing except for the default preset. Is it possible to reactivate the sopplied presets before applying my own? It's easier to learn using the supplied presets. Thanks in advance for a helpful tip.
  5. Hi all! Hope you're doing great! I'll try to be brief. As I pointed out in this twit, the non-Apple devices found in the preset dropdown in the Affinity suite are way too old. I don't even remember what screen, resolution or size these devices had, for this "preset suggestion" to be relevant to me anymore (I mean, just look at the release dates. Nexus 5 and Surface Pro 2: October 2013, Galaxy S5: April 2014, etc.) I believe the suite could have more useful presets by simply updating the models these presets refer to, so that we can have something more recent in mind when we choose what to work with. Thanks a lot for reading!
  6. I'd love to see a set of basic stroke pressure presets, with associated thumbnail icons. ie. Flat, 100% - 0, 0 - 100%, Centre-peak etc. I find myself so often wanting a simple stroke pressure style and having to recreate it every time. I guess I could make them myself and save them, but they wouldn't have easy-to-use icons I can just click.
  7. I have several file export settings defined in my own presets. I'd like to move these export presets around per preset to other systems and other Affinity software on the same machine and make copies and backups of them. I've noticed there's a file_export_options.dat file in the user-folder somewhere within AppData, but that doesn't seem to be made for (compatible) distribution and exchanging. Also with this file it's obviously impossible to export a single filepreset alone to move that to a different system or another Affinity application. Also because that *.dat-file is a binary without some Affinity recognisable extension, like pallets have for example, it's clear these are not made to exchange and we never know if using them on a different system (or newer version of Designer/Photo/Publisher with maybe more settings added to the program) have them running without problems or crashing the system. If these were xml's or json's that would be a lot easier for us to have faith in compatibility and we would be able to edit them at least, but they are not so it's on our own risk now to move these files around, which I don't really like and we're obviously not meant to do that. So I would like to see a way to export a preset to a file, like *.afFilepreset or json or xml. And to be able to import this preset from file in another Affinity application. That way we can create our preset once and copy them to other systems and Affinity products on the same machine. So we have the same presets everywhere and don't need to toggle on those settings on and off on all machines and software. I put this in the Affinity Designer forum, but the same goes for Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher. It would be great if we could also move these presets around from Designer to Photo and Publisher (on the supported file-types ofcoarse)
  8. Is there a way to insert/create a copyright/watermark in Affinity Photo please?
  9. Hi, I've tried to salve some presets in Develop Persona but there is a wrong in White Balance. I choose and set all options in Basic, but the temperature and the tint doesn't save...why? Thanks! affinity.mov
  10. Hi, I am working on Affinity to open my RAW images. I normally have a process to edit my pictures, but I tried to make a preset on the "Basic" area in the studio before developing the image and it just is not working. I tried searching for this bug everywhere but I cannot seem to find anything relevant. I found this YouTube video that explains how to do it, however, I am not getting the option to add a preset. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epN9oIGhL6k (This is the YouTube link). If this is a glitch I would like to know or I just might not know how to add a preset. In any case, please let me know what I can do to solve this issue. Thanks!
  11. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 1.7.0.227. The Navigator studio has some - undocumented, as far as I can tell - presets (little bars under the slider) that you can click on to quickly change the zoom level but they need pixel-perfect clicking to be able to use them. At present, the mouse pointer has to be exactly on the tiny one/two-pixel-wide bar. I think it would be better if there was a leeway of, say, three/four pixels to either side, or the bar could be made thicker with a correspondingly larger 'hitbox'.
  12. Greetings, Just installed a new printer (Epson XP55), calibrated it with a ColorMunki and results are very nice. However it is not clear to me how to establish a relation between the Affinity print profile and a device preset. For example I created several profiles in Affinity Photo with names like GLL_10_15, GL_13_18 and GLL_A4 (short for Glossy Landscape size 10*15, 13*18 and A4). I also made Device presets for the Epson X55 with exactly the same names and just before saving a new Affinity Photo print profile, did select that device preset, then saved the Affinity Photo print profile. I more or less expected that when I switch to a specific Affinity Photo print profile the corresponding Device preset would also be chosen, but this does not seem to be the case. I still have to click the Properties button right next to the printer selection listbox in the Affinity Photo Print window and choose the correct Device preset as well. Am I expecting too much? Am I overlooking something? Any thoughts? With kind regards, Aad Slingerland.
  13. Hello, I’ve searched through existing posts (see short list below) but it’s not clearly stated if those requests have been added to the development list or out of consideration. (They don’t appear to be reflected in the roadmap unless I’m missing a reference.) Is it possible to get clarification as to whether Affinity has plans to support: Ability to import Photoshop and Illustrator 'Preset' files / styles: Most Important:Gradients: .grd file extension Styles: .asl file extension Patterns: .pat file extensionIncluding preset pattern fills (related post by someone else is referenced below) Moderately important but could live without:Color Swatches: .aco file extension Custom Shapes: .csh file extension I have a huge library of the above (gradients, styles, and patterns in particular) that I'd rather not lose (or have to recreate) by switching to Affinity Designer. Somewhat-related forum posts: Import .ase and .aco files: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/1483-import-palette…-importing-ase-and-aco-files/ Import Photoshop and vector brushes: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/532-import-photoshop-and-vector-brushes/ Vector pattern fills, custom vector brushes, dotted lines: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/1913-vector-pattern-fills-custom-vector-brushes-dotted-lines/ (This one in particular, it’s stated that vector pattern fills are not yet in the roadmap; does that mean that it’s out of consideration, or just that it’s not coming in the near future?) Thank you for any clarification you can provide. Regards, --S
  14. I understand that saving export presets is on the feature request list already -- +1. I'm trying to manually produce the same export results. Here're screenshots from both MacOS (latest) and iPad (latest), and the iOS exported image geometry differs from same export on MacOS. How can I replicate my export svg settings from MacOS to iOS so I can export from either with consistent results? Regards, d00d
  15. It is great to have the ability to save presets in the layer adjustments, but I cannot find any option to load these presets :mellow: I read in the help/manual and it says "right click" within the adjustment window, but nothing happens on a right click. How can I load a preset???
  16. In my evaluation of Affinity (the program is becoming increasingly attractive), two things are frustrating me. The first is important to me, the second less so but useful: 1. Presets. I have seen a video which shows how to save a RAW preset, where the presenter right clicks on the Preset tab and is asked which one to use or whether to create a new one. When I do the same, the only option shown is Default which is, of course, already selected. If I click on this it takes my work back to square one. How do I enable saving of presets? 2. Menu. Most (all?) the videos show the menu bar hidden until the user takes the cursor up to the top of the screen. How do I hide the menu bar and save that little bit of screen space? Thanks to those who will reply. DaveMM
  17. I imported a photo from Mac Photos App (by dragging into Affinity Photo). Tone Mapping Persona requested an RGB Pixel Layer. With trial an error I created a Rasterised Image and selected that and could get into Tone Mapping Persona. The presets seem to show what I wanted, but clicking on any of them does not update the image! why? A bug? Screenshot included.
  18. Where is the library panel? I was looking at the video with the instagram like filters but can't seem to find it Thanks, awesome job!
  19. How do I recall a saved preset that I added? I made a Levels preset but don't see the option to apply it on another layer.
  20. Lets say I want to develop 5 RAW files. They require all the same develop settings like white balance, curve adjustment, pre sharpening and lens corrections, to mention just a few. Is there an easy way or do I have to make 4 separate presets in the Basic, Tones, Detail and Lens tab?
  21. Hi! I have some presets defined, but I found, that changing from one preset to another, changes picture, but not all values in Affinity Photo (some changes, but i.e. color balance not). It can be misleading. Is that how presets works? Any changes in next versions?
  22. I'm starting the trial version of affinity photo. I noticed that the shadows/highlights adjustment resets every time I start a new document, so I created a preset of the adjustment that I wanted to use on several documents. The only problem is that I can't figure out where to find the preset. I expected a drop down menu when I opened up the shadows/highlight adjustment the next time, but the only option was to create a new preset. Then I thought my preset might be listed in the adjustments menu. Nope. Where can I find it? Another great option to help with the problem would be the ability to copy a layer style from the layers panel and then apply it to a different layer. Maybe this is already possible (I hope) and it just doesn't work the way that I am used to doing it. Thanks in advance for your help.
  23. In dynamic adjustments such as Gradient Map and Channel Mixer, you can 'Add Preset' but curiously, you can't Load it (you have to go to the Adjustments tab). This seems an odd omission. It would help also if you could 'Export' and 'Import' them to files so they could be shared. Thanks for watching (and, hopefully, implementing).
  24. Hi, I recently bought affinity photo and designer and I absolutly love those apps. My mother is recently on the verge of completing her first book from a series that will be published. During my work on her book we noticed that it would be really helpful if there where preset document sizes of the most common print sizes for example 8,5inch x 5,5inch is a common create space book size and also the book size my mother went for. Also what would be helpful is to implement industry standard margins and bleeds for those templates so all a user would have to do is open a preset and would have a print ready format with bleed and margins all correct in place. There are much more of common book sizes and there missing as presets, so please add them in the next update. sencirily David
  25. Hi, I'm new to photo editing and to using affinity photo Yesterday I started editing photos using the develope persona and I ran into a couple of issues I have a batch of photos in the same scene with the same lighting conditions So I thought of editing one photo and then applying all the edits to the rest of the photos - but that option of batch processing doesn't exist for the develope persona. So I tried a suggestion from the forums - to use presets Now it took me some time to understand how to use presets - it's not self explanatory. You have to make your changes completely and then create a new preset for each category - he basic, lens correction, tone curves, detail categories Two issues I found were: 1. White balance settings don't get saved to the preset - thus I have to change white balance again for each photo 2. When I open a new RAW file, the previous preset (for example "outside preset") is selected but is not applied. I have to switch back to default preset and then select "outside" preset for it to effct the changes Any ideas? I'm pretty sure I have the latest affinity photo version for windows
