  1. Hi there, I'm currently making a booklet for work and I'm struggling to get the page ordering correct for it to print as a booklet. It's a 25 page document and the pages were made in the correct order however when I go to print as a booklet (flip short sides, A4 paper) my back page ends up being covered by a blank sheet which is half of the second page and then my back page is in facing to the last page. I'll add images if it helps because I'm atrocious when it comes to explaining things. Thank you
  2. Please make the Canon Print Studio Pro plugin work with Affinity Photo. Thousands of people use it. It works really well and makes printing all sorts of things cleaner, easier, and better. The Pattern Print function alone is worth its weight in gold (if it actually weighed something :-) Not being able to use Canon Print Studio Pro really has me on the fence about using Affinity Photo.
  3. I really like what I see about Affinity. I am trying to replace both PS5 and LR5. The main thing I use PS for that I really need is the ability to bring in a blank white background like 10"x7" and then put my photo on it so I can print 5x7 greeting cards. I need to be able to add text in different fonts, including ones I have imported, and .psd images. Is this possible in Affinity? I would also like to be able to add borders if possible. Could I change the opacity and blend modes? In other words, can I create a document with layers that I can then print? Thank you!
  4. I manipulate the image, then copy and paste it into a new document so that I can resize and position the image on the page for printing. When I print, it shows a faint edge or border. There is no border or edge in the document (even zoomed in, none appears). I tried cropping the image, just in case there was a microscope border I had not cut off, but same result. If I print the image directly (not the pasted-into-document version) then no edge prints. But then I have no option to position the image where I need it on the paper. How can I get rid of this edge? I am using Mac Desktop version and Canon Pro 100 printer.
  5. This topic explains one important problem with printing from Affinity Photo. It is highly important for a professional photographer. So... When printing on from Protoshop, it takes the printer settings into account. Just one example. Printing on almost any high quality fine art paper is made by default with the 35-mm fields from both sides. A printer driver knows this, and sets up the printing fields when choosing a fine art paper. The instance that below shows printing on Canon Pixma Pro-1 from Photoshop, and you will see the same with the use of any Prograf printer as well. That is once you choose "fit" option in the printing window of Photoshop, it automatically fits the picture to within the 35- mm margins set up by the printer driver (see the screenshot). Also, you can set up the printed size of the picture manually by setting up the millimeters/inches in the printing window. I mean that, if your fine art picture is shown in your catalogue is defined as, I say, 26.7 cm x 38.4 cm, you can merely type one of the sizes in the Photoshop window, thus the printer will make exact the same size in print. Also, the Photoshop printing window shows the output resolution that this picture will be printed after the scaling (see the screenshot below). I typed all these important issues by red on the screenshot. Not currently in Affinity Photo ... See the second, third, and fourth screens that below. First. Affinity Photo does not fit the image to within the printer driver pre-defined margins: once you choose "fit to printable", Affinity Photo merely extends the image to the paper size (without taking the printer setting of 35-mm margins into account). In other word, the current version of Affinity Photo does not take the printer driver settings into account. See the second screenshot, please. One can try to fit the image to within the printer predefined margins. Or one can try to fint the image to the desired size, I say, trying to type somewhere 26.7 cm x 38.4 cm manually. It is impossible in the current version of Affinity Photo ... See the screenshot below. Of course, one can try to choose the needed percentage of scaling. But one can guess the percentage producing the required size, I say, 25.7 cm or something like this. I emphasized this issue by red and explained this problem by white words on the screenshot. Choosing percentage instead of exact size of the printed image is suitable to amateur person printing travel pictures rather than a professional photographer (who needs to get exact size of printed image, that is strongly required for sale options). So forth, the print resolution. In Photoshop printing window (see the first screenshot), the print resolution depends on the scale percentage. So, the protograopher can easy control the printing quality: aha... the resolution became lesser than 300 ppi... so we should set up a lesser size of the image. Not in the current version of Affinity Photo (see the screenshot that below). By choosing the option "rasterization" we see a resolution that does not change with the scaling of the image... That is, you can set up any resolution independent from the true output resolution of the scaled image. This is a puzzle and, if it is true then unacceptable for a professional fine art photographer (fine art images should only be printed with the true scaled resolution that gives the best high quality result on print). Conclusion. I purchased Affinity Photo because my wishes to replace my Photoshop CS6 (because I disilke Adobe subscription while Affinity Photo provides perpetual license). I also sincere believe in the Affinity Photo project as a Photoshop replacement. But now, with the above issues of the printing options (and also still incompatibility with DxO FilmPack that I reported recently), I still use, enforcedly, Photoshop. I believe that the Affinity Photo team likes to attract professional photographers (not only amateurs). In such case, the above issues should be improved somehow in the future releases of Affinity Photo. Thank you for your time! (I hope you read my report upto the end.)
  6. I've been having some print issues while trialing the Publisher beta. Single sided printing is fine, but if I try to modify any settings in the print driver (Fuji-Xerox DocuCentre) to do double sided printing they revert back to default after confirming. Workaround is to export a PDF and print from Adobe Acrobat.
  7. 1.7.0.249 version windows 10 HP Envy 4502 Series I am trying to print double sided in book format. When the printer pulls the page back in it doesn't seem to pull it in far enough to print. Therefore it cuts off the edge of my print. My margins and page sizes work properly because I can print it out and manually put the page back in to print on the other side and it's fine. I can also open the pdf and print double sided and it works. It is a little bit smaller when I do that though. I have gone through a ton of ink and paper and I can't sort it out. I only have one printer that prints double sided automatically so I can't test it with a different one.

  9. This is in addition to my previous posts on the current impossibility to use of Affinity Photo print manager for accurate printing: Affinity Photo print manager should be updated How Affinity Photo meets Canon pro printers Today I tried to print an image from Affinity Photo, again, but calculating the scaling per cent with Calculator. This could remove, temporarily, the problem that Affinity photo print manager does not provide the physical size of printed image, but only the scaling per cent. OK. Let us print an image with, I say, 51% of scaling. You can see Affinity photo print manager below. The image is shown well aligned with respect to the page borders: But, once you start printing so that Affinity photo calls the printer driver (Canon Pixma Pro-1 in this case, but the same is observed on other Canon printers), you see... the image is turned to the page corner. And there is no way how to change the image location... That is, I guess, Affinity Photo print manager, when connecting with printers, does not do it correctly... In practice this means that you cannot align printed image on page when printing from Affinity Photo. To be honest, this does not allow printing something at all... I see this problem on the Canon professional printers (such as Pixma Pro-1 or Prograf). Compare how this works in Photoshop. When launching PS print manager we can set up both physical size and scaling per cent, on your choice and without boring calculations to match desired height or width of the image: And then, PS print managers calls printer drivers in correct way so that the image is well aligned to the page borders: CONCLUSION. It is the third week as I use Affinity Photo (trying to migrate to it from Photoshop). I got much editing work in Affinity Photo already. I like it much more than Photoshop, and believe your project has great future. But still unable to print something without problems... Photography exists not only in the fileds of the internet (which is a short flash in the world history). Prints survive in centuries as those made by Bruegel and Duerer five centuries ago. I therefore hope that Affinity photo print manager will have been improved in the next stable release, to meet professional photo-artists who are de-facto print makers as well.

    1.5 print Crash

    Hi there, I've just upgraded to 1.5 on Designer (lush by the way!). But when I try to print from having artboards it crashes... Obvious not end of the world because I can export it etc. but thats a faff... Any Ideas? Grace, Chris
  11. At least not in Indesign CS5, and I was delighted that Publisher has a feature for tableau printing! The absolute coronation would be even now, if horizontally and vertically different bleeds would be possible - including a rotation of the page (with suitable backgrounds) to keep the number of cuts low (works at corel draw) -> see screenshot
  12. Hello, I have the following issue for which I can't find a solution anywhere I've looked. So, I got this artwork and I need to prepare it for printing. I wish to export each CMYK channel separately so I can create the half tones. Howver, when I disable the channel on the Channels studio, and then export the image I don't get the grayscale of the enabled channel, instead I a full color export. Is there a way to export just a single channel or better to straight create a layer from the channel to do the half tones directly on the file? (this is what I want to achieve) Thanks for your time! I'm using Affinity Photo for this but I've got both in case I needed to use Designer. -Nehemek
  13. not Let me join the list of complaints about the inability to center an image when printing in Affinity. I have used both the direct print mode as well as the soft proofing method but to no avail. The images are always skewed to one side. I agree that this is an important issue if Affinity intends to replace Photoshop as a significant image post processor. This is not a "printer" issue. I have the Canon Pixma Pro 10 and when I print the same image using Photoshop controls, it is well centered. I am very interested in shifting entirely to Affinity but, so far, I remain hesitant because of this serious problem. Affinity should consider making Canon Print Studio Pro available as a good solution. I have tried but learned that Affinity is not compatible with Print Studio Pro. I sincerely hope that this issue can be resolved soon. From what I read it has lingered on for quite some time and has not been resolved with the newest upgrade which I am using.
  14. When printing a booklet: Legal size paper Landscape mode Flip on Short Side ...It prints great with everything except the model is changed to Flip on Long Side. It prints that way and its set to that when I enter back into the printing options. I have tried different approaches and still I cannot get it to print "Flip on Short Side". I know there is a current problem with printing, maybe this is part of that or something separate?? https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/75668-printing-issue/ I am running the current beta build: 1.7.0.206
  15. When trying to print with Affinity Photo on Canon iPF750 plotter, i keep receiving the following message: "Cannot find module necessary for printing. Re-install the printer driver." I have updated the driver to the latest version but i still cannot print. This issue doesn't exist when printing on my Konica Minolta printer. Any suggestions?
  16. Months ago I bought a Canon Pixma Pro-100 and started using Affinity Designer. My artwork came off the printer looking nearly identical to what I saw on the screen. I was very, very excited. Now I don't know what has happened, but everything that comes off the printer looks like crap. The colors are WAY off. Basics: - Affinity Designer on HP Envy x360 m6 laptop running Windows 10 Home (using laptop monitor and 2nd aux monitor) - Canon Pixma Pro-100 using Canon Semi-Gloss paper The default color profile that was being used was sRGB IEC1966-2.1. I don't know much about color profiles and that was the selection that showed up when I started digging. I have switched my document AND printer profiles to Canon PRO-100 <SG> 1/2 Photo Paper Plus Semi and Adobe RGB (1988) with zero changes in print output results. Everything I have read talks about calibrating monitors... I admit that I have not done this, however I am not printing photos but creating artwork in Adobe Animate using the standard color palette. I feel that no matter how my monitor calibration is set when I select red #FF0000 (255/0/0) that it should still print red, right? So here is the strangest part of this. I downloaded a test image to print. On my monitor the red looks red, green looks green, etc. When I imported the jpeg into Affinity Designer to print I immediately saw that the colors were different. The red appears more pale, the bright green looks like a pastel, etc. Here is a screen shot... pay special attention to the green in the 9-box just to the right of the ship photo. ...so I printed the sample graphic using Affinity Designer and the Canon Semi-Gloss color profile and ended up with this ugly POS: Granted, the light in my office isn't great, but the baby's face looks almost purple and not skin-tone like on the monitor. Hmmm.... WTF? Had a thought... hey, what if I print this using Windows instead of Affinity Designer? Right clicked the jpeg on my desktop and let Windows do it's thing and ended up with this... The color of the baby is VERY close to what I see on the monitor when I printed from Windows. The colors in the 9-box are DRASTICALLY different Windows vs Affinity Designer. So I thought that I could output my designs to a PNG and just let Windows print it... but I tried it with my own artwork and the results came out identical to every other attempt. (scratching head) Hoping someone can help. I'm overwhelmed by Google results on this topic.
  17. Hello Everyone. I have down loaded from the Permajet print paper manufacturer web site a whole bunch of ICC profiles for printing. Problem: All of the downloaded profiles have the suffix .icm - but Affinity Photo searches for profiles with a .icc suffix. So. Are the icm profiles compatible with Affinity and how do I change the search to include icm profiles? All help and advice gratefully received. Thank you.
  18. I printed an A4 montage as a Christmas present only to discover that it emerged from the printer as a disappointingly washed-out print. I know now this was mostly my fault as I had never set up Affinity for printing and it was using its default settings. I usually save my photos from Affinity and print from the Epson Easy Print programme. However as it was A4 I printed direct. I watched the videos about printing and soft proofing hoping I had found the solution. I didn't know what document profile to use so I chose Adobe RGB (1998) as that's what I used in Photoshop. I set the soft proofing to the printer paper I was going to use and ticked gamut check. I tweaked the curves (as shown in the video) until the grey splodges had disappeared. I increased the vibrance and HSL a little as too much brought some grey splodges back. I also found I needed to sharpen the photo more. The rendering intent was Absolute Colourimetric (None of them seemed to make any difference.) I did remember to turn off the soft proofing layer. In the print dialogue I chose the printer profile to match the printer paper but I didn't know what to put in the Profile option at the top so that was left as Custom. The photos I printed were certainly an improvement as far as colour intensity was concerned but were a bit darker and rather muddy. As you can tell I am well out of my comfort zone when dealing with setting up the printer and soft proofing (which is totally new to me) so if any experts out there could give me some pointers on printing from Affinity and soft proofing I would be very grateful (or point me to some info already available that I might have missed). TIA And a belated Happy New Year to all
  19. I am trying to print a picture of a person. The picture came out far too light (blown out?). I reduced the brightness and the result was better but is still very light and seems to have yellow/greenish cast to it. I know there are things you can alter like colour spaces but I have so little understanding of this it really would be complete trial and error. Is there a procedure or method one can follow to reduce time and wastage? TIA BoW
  20. Hi all I made a simple page with some text overlaid on a box behind it. I then flipped the items on the page horizontally and all looked OK until I printed it. The text had 4 lines of text with the top line Underlined. The text came out to the right of the background box, and the underline on the top line stayed in the box. I have attached a picture of the screen and printer output to make it clearer. Thanks Vince
  21. I tried printing on 100 x 150 mm photo paper, but Publisher 4.7.0.192 refused to change the paper size from A4 despite setting it to 100 x 150 mm.
  22. Shut down when printing multi pages
  23. Hi. I have the following problem (I think it's a bug): When I print a card with the N-Up option, there are some crop marks that do not come out if I activate the bleed or the horizontal or vertical gaps. I attach two sample images (the first one with bleed, and the second with h-gap and v-gap). I need double crop marks where the arrows are pointing. Thank you!
  24. I’m preparing an A4 landscape project in Photo, to print on an HP Photosmart B110a. A lot of ink is involved and I want to print at least the drafts, possibly the finished product (80 copies), in the printer’s draft mode. When I print in normal mode all is well. When I change to draft mode the copy prints out a centimetre higher up than it should, so the top gets chopped off and there is blank paper at the bottom. I then change back to normal mode, and it still prints out a centimetre higher up. Closing and reopening the file doesn’t reset it; exiting Photo and reopening it does.
  25. We are printing labels to a LX900 label printer, and when sending a print job with multiple copies, the printer will only print one copy. We just started using affinity, so it's not worked at any point for printing. Previously on Drawplus with same printer and not this problem.
