  1. Affinity Photo crashed om me when I tried scanning some pages using my network attached Brother scanner (using File --> Acquire Image). Weird behavior happened twice: After I scanned the four pages, Affinity Photo quit without warning and without saving my scans, which were opened as images in Photo, but not yet saved . The Acquire Image toolbox was open. When I reopened Photo, I got the error message seen in the attached screenshot. Photo didn't crash again, so I think it was related to the crash which did just happen. The detailed error report is attached as well (from the Show Details button in the error reporting dialog). affinity_photo_scanner_crash_report.txt
  2. In CorelDraw I can import a bitmap (say a JPG logo which has been copied so many times that it is long past the scruffy stage) and TRACE it. This function finds the edges and creates objects from them. It approximates the colours of fills and the end result is a vector graphic which can be edited back to its original condition. Also very useful for creating vector graphics from scanned drawings. Does AD have anything like this? - I can't see any references in the Help system (which has a lovely UI!) Which reminds me that I can't find any import options from Twain or WIA sources. Does AD have anything like this? - I can't see any references in the Help system (which has a lovely UI!)
  3. I used to be able to scan from my Brother MFC-8480DN to my iMac in Photo with no problems, but now it seems to result in an odd, disjointed scan of the object different from what was showing on the overview scan dialog (see screenshots below). Any idea why this is happening now with this 1.5.2 version of Photo or is it just this particular scanner?
  4. It would be good if the programme would allow the user to import directly by using a scanner.
  5. Folks, What is missing in the Affinity PHOTO is missing feature concerning scanning photos and working on them right away… Could you add this feature in the next release of Affinity PHOTO? Thx for reply…
  6. It would be good to be able to directly scan into Affinity Photo
  7. Every time I need to scan a paper photo, I need to use other programs, like GIMP. I would very much like this process to be done directly in Affinity Photo. Are there plans for this?
  8. I would like to have the ability to scan films (negatives ou slides) in Affinity Photo. The data would be converted in universal DNG format and immediately opened in Persona Develop module for processing. This would be a great addition for (semi) analog photographers. Currently I have to reboot on an external hard disk with Snow Leopard (10.6.8) to use nikonscan sofware which produces good results. But it is so slooooowwww. My scanner : Nikon LS9000ED. (English is not my native language)
  9. Request scanning resolution be increased from the current maximum of 600dpi. This is the only feature that keeps me from migrating fully from Photoshop. My current scanner can scan pictures well above 9600dpi, but AF maximum scan resolution is only 600dpi. Smaller prints need to be scanned at a higher resolution to work effectively with them. Thanks for your consideration. Kind Regards, Danny J. McNeal
  10. Hi, I just downloaded the trial version of Affinity Photo to determine if it can replace Photoshop Elements (for Mac) for my purposes. I am using a photo/slide scanner to digitize and fix faded family slides, negatives, and photos that were damaged in a flood. Does Affinity Photo handle 35mm slides and negatives as well as photos? If so, how do I do it; my scanner handles slides, negatives and photos. If not, is this a feature you may be adding in the future? Thank you for any help you can provide. Katya
  11. Is there any way to scan a photograph and import the image with Affinity Photo? I am really wanting to remove the entire Photoshop program from my MacBook Pro, but unfortunately I need it to do a Twain import from time to time via scanner. Thanks for any help. If this is not a function of Affinity Photo now, perhaps the Affinity staff might take it for action? Danny
