  1. Is it possible to truly disable dithering for gradients? I only found the option in the performance settings, which is however limited to the preview rather than the final result. Meaning as soon as the gradient/s in question are rasterised the dithering is back on, which leads to undesirable results. (Preview) (Rasterized/Exported)
  2. Hi friends. I'm curious to know why this warning is showing when exporting pdf files from Affinity Publisher? This is so disappointing. I don't want anything to be rasterised Is there any way to turn this option off? TIA!
  3. I have a layer stack of about 40 individual layers composited to create a sky. The file is getting really slow to work with, so I thought I would duplicate the layer stack, Rasterize it, and turn off the original Layered stack, and get some performance improvements. But AP Rasterizes the group incorrectly. Attached you can see screengrabs showing before and after Rasterizing. I tried rasterizing the individual layers and then the group itselt, but no dice...
  4. Hi all, First time posting here, so I hope this is the appropriate place... I'm creating an image with multiple layers - I run a small theatre company and this image will be used to promote a touring show. It's a countryside scene with a group standing in the middle, and around the edge I have a black silhouette of leaves, branches, rushes, etc. to frame the picture. I've applied a light (1-2px) gaussian blur as a live filter to these silhouette layers in order to soften them and give a sense of depth. However, when I export the image, the gaussian blur is removed,
  5. Great work on the Designer iPad release (if only I could afford one!) just a wee niggle here with something thats driving me round the bend (since the first release of Designer) I've adapted my workflow to accommodate a workaround for accurate bleed but I'm just wondering when we're gonna get the ability to rasterise bleed and not just clip to only whats on the page? I've just been working on a CD digipak and noticed that my print ready PDF/X4 file is viewing an vector area with transparency oddly on adobe reader on iOS (looks OK on Acrobat pro on the mac) - easy problem to solve: ra
  6. Simple request would be that the rasterise feature actually acknowledge the bleed associated to the document. Currently it takes the trim size but for print related work it would be far more functional to be able to place elements into the bleed and then when rasterising have the finished article have the bleed included. All the best, Mark
  7. Not sure if I've missed something, but when I right-click on a curve, or select from the 'Layer' menu, the option to 'Rasterise...', ellipses normally indicates there are further options or a dialog box will appear before the action is performed, but none does. (mind, I'm not sure what options I would expect).
  8. Hello all! I'm having problems with some antialiasing that appears around rectangular images I drag and drop or copy across documents in Photo. It is even worst when I rasterise* the image to make it pixel, the antialias is taken into account and the image size is increased by 1x1 pixels. I came from Photoshop and never had such issue; probably a bug in Photo?. Why is this happening and how can I stop it from happening? Thanks *By the way, why does the rasterise command have three dots but it doesn't bring a settings pop up? Did it have one before?
  9. Hey everyone! When working with masks, there will be fragments sometimes that make it difficult to see what's going on. It happened on several occasions other than the one I was able to reproduce reliably. Here is a step by step instruction on how you should be able to reproduce this: 1. Open Affinity Photo 1.5.2 2. Create 3 layers: Layer 1 using some image, Layer 2 using some image, Layer 3 using a mask (white on alpha ground) 3. Group Layer 2 (image) and Layer 3 (mask) 4. Select the mask layer 5. Set Blend mode to Linear Light 6. Lay
  10. When exporting the document to SVG, no matter what settings I change I consistantly get one of two outcomes. 1.) --- The SVG becomes a rastered image when the export settings are set to rasterise unsupported properties. Helen's_Bike.svg 2.) --- The SVG becomes broken, Helen's_Bike_0.svg (Only the mask for the handlebars seems to work. All Shadow shapes display unmasked and the shapes used as masks seem to be released. Them being released also means that they are a layer above the Shadow layers) There are no effects on any layers, although the
  11. PHOTO I've noticed this for a while but didn't think to post. You have an image. Make sure 'force pixel alignment is off'. Perform a crop. Then either rasterize the layer or flatten the document and many times there will be a small 1px transparent edge(s) on the image. If it is completely transparent shouldn't it be cropped away? Using 'force pixel alignment' fixes this but it seems that it is not accurate behavior with it off.
  12. Hi, I'm new to this forum and I haven't been able to find an answer to this particular issue. I'm working on a book cover in Affinity Designer and now I need to export my file to PDF for print. Due to transparency issues, I have to "flatten" the image before exporting. I found that to do so in AD, I first have to group and then rasterise. The only problem is that when I do this, the bleed is messed up. Instead of having the background extending into the bleed, it stops at the end of the document and the bleed is left as a white frame around the PDF (se attached picture). Is there a
  13. When the Paint Brush Tool is used on an Image layer, the target layer is automatically rasterized to convert it to a Pixel layer because the tool only works on layers of that type. The Inpainting Brush Tool and the Selection Brush Tool also only produce a result on Pixel layers, so the same automatic rasterization should be invoked when they are used.
  14. As AP is not capable of adapting some effects e.g. gaussian blur to a resized document I'm forced to rasterize complex structure with elements that won't adapt. In this case I imported my watermark to a picture. I made it available in high res to be able to adapt it to any docsize that might come up. Before resizing the watermark to desired output dimensions II have to reasterize it for before mentioned reasons. The boundaries of the watermark exceed the document boundaries After rasterizing this object consisting of text and pixel layers the boundaries of the watermark getting cropped at t
  15. Hi. I've created some icons in a separate Affinity file which I have simply copy pasted into an artwork file which is to be exported as a PDF. These icons are being rasterised on export, which is a problem. I understand that this is likely a limitation of the PDF format - not handling some of the techniques used to create the icons, but is there a way I can 'flatten' the icons without losing fidelity? This is the first piece of actual work I've attempted in Affinity and aside from this issue I'm loving it. Thanks.
  16. When an element is rasterized any content outside of the boundaries of the combined artboards is removed. I'm guessing this is to reduce file size by eliminating content that isn't in view. The problem is that when you have set bleed on the artboards for printing and then rasterize an element it actually crops the portion that is meant to be part of the bleed. This may sound confusing but is illustrated in the attached jpg. It would be ideal to either have the option to crop content outside the artboards' boundaries or to take the document's bleed into consideration if it auto crops.
  17. I have an image within a 300 dpi document that is according to the contextual toolbar 900 dpi. While AD documents tends to be rather hungry in disk space, I thought that it would be a good idea to adjust the image resolution to match the document one to save space. The rasterise function in the layer menu seems to be a quick way to do exactly that, but... I also have 3 mm bleeds on my document with the image filling them out. Unfortunately, the rasterise function cuts the image to the document nominal size, excluding the bleeds. Is this expected or to be considered as a bug? Any s
  18. In AD the text looks fine however when exported to PDF, JPEG or PNG it appears rasterised. Is this a problem with the programme or something I'm overlooking? Project and PDF attached. TEA.afdesign TEA.pdf
