I have tried to retrieve images from Unsplash through the Stock panel in Publisher several times and repeatedly get the message "Connection Failed." I can however use the link to go to the website. This problem also exists in Affinity Photo. Is there a fix for this? Unsplash has undoubtedly better images and a larger selection. While downloading from their website is not such a big problem, it does complicate the workflow and I believe solving that was the point of including the Stock panel feature.
Whenever I want to search for some photos in the Stock panel I get the message "Connection Failed", because I can't define the settings for authentification. Is it planned that there will be preferences for this?
I checked the available options for the Stock Panel in Affinity Photo and can only see "shutter stock" as available. It would be wonderful if there were many more than just one option. One addition I would like is for Story Blocks images database to be included as well. Here is the link to Story Blocks: https://www.storyblocks.com/stock-image I have included an attachment of the Stock Panel to show you what I am referring to. If anyone else has requests for image databases to be included, please list them here to avoid unnecessary duplicate threads expanding on this feature.
Using the Stock Panel. According to AP Help: “The panel acts as an in-app image browser which connects to one of several photo providers (e.g. Shutter stock ).”. (The bold italics are my own). In the case of my panel ‘several’ reminds of my very fashionable wife. “I will wear any colour so long as it’s black!”. The choice appears to be Shutterstock, Shutterstock or …… Shutterstock! The drop down offers no other options at all! Is this correct or is something missing from my installation? There are no controls I can find for this panel that might allow the addition of other libraries or suppliers. A panel confined to one single supplier seems to be somewhat limited in its usefulness ........... :( ........... so am I missing something here? Is there a way I can add the URL’s of my own libraries to this panel? Thanks for any help.
