  1. Hi, When opening a file with missing fonts, and exporting it as SVG (and perhaps other formats), AD shouldn't export text using Arial font infos, but keep original font infos. The replacement font is only a way to visialize text until we've got the missing font installed, the document shouldn't be modified this way (this is important, since the replacement is usually a poor one).
  2. I have a simple JPG generated by some software, and I'd like to replace one colour (straight black or white) with another, or make it transparent. So far, any attempt to use the colour replacement brush tool have not given any result, and my search on the forum found its use to be an as yet unanswered question. I was hoping this brush would act as pick-and-replace tool (if pixel is <colour set> then replace with the colour set as front) but evidently I have this wrong. As I have both AD and AP, here are my questions: - which is the best to use? - what is the exact process to replace a specific colour x with a colour y? (layer select, any settings that can mess it up, which brush to choose, how to choose the colour to change and set the colour it will be replaced with). - just in case I come across this later, is there also a way I can control the *range* of colours accepted for replacement (the cat example isn't universally the same orange). I'm clearly missing something simple, but I can't seem to identify what.
  3. Hi, does anybody knows if the is any method for replacing an existing image for another one in Affinity Designer for the iPad as there is in the desktop version? Thanks
  4. Hi guys, I'm a newbie. Can someone explain to me, step by step, how to replace the sky in a 360 image? I followed the official Affinity tutorial but what I get is a "sky" cut. I am attaching a screenshot. The sky I used is a 360 photo that I downloaded from the web. But it seems that affinity does not recognize it as 360. What am I doing wrong? I read on another topic that I have to apply the equirectangular distortion. But I don't know how to do this. Can someone explain it to me? Thank you
  5. Before I whine I want to say that this app is getting to be more spectacular day by day! It is an amazing baby and I cannot wait for the adult! Cheers to developers, staff, and users!!! Now, for my pitiful complaint. I work on16th through 18th century British and Continental books to convert them to easily readable and editable documents for other scholars. One of the key issues is to replace old fonts with current more modern fonts that are easily read and reproduced. Publisher is excellent in recognizing what the fonts are in the Old Original book. The current book I am working on has a combo of Veranda, Courier, Times, and a few others. It correctly discerns the style too. However, though it recognizes the fonts, it states that they are missing and need to be substituted with alternatives. Actually the fonts are available on my Mac, but Publisher may see 20 variations of the same style ie. 20 variations of Regular, or Italic, Bold etc. This creates a replacement table that has taken me hours to work through. If the 15 variations of Arial Regular are substituted by Arial from the Font Menu it works perfectly. To accomplish this you have to change each and every instance in the replacement table one at a time. If not difficult enough the Font Substitution Table is very small, and it trolls through the available fonts so quickly that it takes a lot of time jogging up and down through it to land on the correct font. In QuarkExpress when a font is missing it sees all of the 15 variations as replaceable by the modern font and is able to distinguish between the styles so that you could pick Arial for instance, and it would adjust to the style ie. Bold, Italic etc. The menu is large enough to be easily worked with and the menu operates at a speed where old dudes like me don't have a heart attack watching the fonts fly by. Oh Great Developers can you fix this to help me not go insane with this process? Just realized that a couple of pictures of the Font Substitution window would help: AS can be seen Publisher correctly sees the fonts but sees many variations of then same. All of these shown are regular and were easily substituted for but had to be done one at a time. Have a great weekend one and all!!!
  6. Hello! Please have a look at the following image: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O8yEvxtFKmYVeJZn5QgdxLKUXv_eRsdO/view?usp=sharing It's a low-res artwork of a neuron, often found in scientific contexts. The left part is the original image, the right part is the original image where black has been replaced by white (so that this image can be put on dark backgrounds). The right part is also the result of Photoshop, where I've simply used "Replace Color", chose full black to be replaced by full white, tweaked a little bit with the tolerance, and that's it. I'm having trouble getting the same result with Affinity Photo, unfortunately. I think the fact that the image is basically low-quality makes it a little bit harder. The goal would be to replace the black stroke with a white one, but leave the red color inside exactly the way it is, just like Photoshop did. Here's my first naïve approach using Curves: https://drive.google.com/file/d/140_HbrpTRi7PwpjuwgKQmbqCb6zA78k9/view?usp=sharing As you can see, I can keep most of the red color, but I'm getting some chromatic abberation around the red circle (why?). Second approach, using Gradient Maps: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AwJtaEAy58O-O0ZWMno89S0sLIc1xbpC/view?usp=sharing The problem here is that I have to hit the same shade of red of the original image at any specific value point, which means I'm recoloring the red circle unfortunately. Any other approaches I missed, and which I could learn? I'd greatly prefer a non-destructive way (compared to Photoshop's) and keep using Affinity Photo/Designer (as always), so I'd be thankful for any help! Affinity Photo's Color Replacement Brush doesn't seem to work at all, it will try to do this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/101TrlMsApn2OfKwgkvKsM1bTs8M9-eEk/view?usp=sharing
  7. Can someone tell me how to do a good sky replacement of this photo? Included are the original and my failed attempt. As you can see there is a lot of purple in the leaves (upper left) in the original. I tried to defringe but that did not solve it. There must be some way to get rid of that purple, make the sky selection/replacement easier. Don't worry that they are not the same size, I am looking for good technique not an interesting photo. Thanks in advance. Orig.afphoto badReplace.afphoto
  8. Hi there, as an Adobe user for years I´m thinking about switching to AP and donwloaded the trial version. From what I see after one day of testing I´m really impressed and I´m sure it not only can replace Photoshop, it seems to be the better software. With that said I have some questions from a AP beginner (not a image editing beginner at all) perspective: 1. Is there a way to "export" images from Adobe Lightroom right into AP? I mean some option to set AP as the external editor in LR 2. Is there an option to save individual workspaces such as in Photoshop? I mean customize the canvas and panels I use the most and save that. 3. If 2. is possible is there a way to use these individual workspaces on two Macs? I´m using an iMac and a MacBook and would like to have the same environment on both machines 4. Is there a specific workflow with CaptureOne? I mean use C1 for tethering, as catalog and for RAW processing and AP for more advanced image editing/retouching 5. Are "panels" available such as in PS? I mean can I arrange my panels and tools in a way shown in the attached screenshots (and save this in my workspace)? I think that´s all for the moment. Thanks a lot for your support. Cheers Michael
  9. Just downloaded an AD file that contained fonts that were not on my system. Is there a way to do a 'search & replace" for fonts, or otherwise exercise some control over the font substitution? Cheers!
  10. When you finish working on affinity photo then It would be great if you made simple app which replace lightroom and discontinued aperture. Also I think making that app in this year would be business wise decision because you can use all the fuss about photo editing programs on apple app market.
