  1. Hello Team ! Hello Everyone ! Glad to make this suggestion for the good of Affinity and Designers or just Users who joined the move and those considering to join the move. My point is about not killing things that we already love but making them even better and i hope this won't become a troll. To my sight, the celebrissime Liquify Persona need to be reviewed and improved, boosted or upgraded (take it as you want). Actually, a persona is not just something we click at but it is an identity to a type of Designer/ Creative Person/People and it is time to make it reflect those of us who identify their style through that Persona. ___________________________________________ Having a Persona to only twirl, Freeze, push etc ... some couple of Pixel is good but ... there is more to it. I suggest the Liquify Persona to be upgraded and maybe renamed to fit with the real style it is supposed to reflect: Photo Manipulation or Photo Composition (here too call like you want). I suggest more tools to be put in there that will help make the Photo Composition/Manipulation happen from that precise place with dedicated tools and even it can be the opportunity to develop new tools that fit the Manipulation/Composition Style. i'm not asking for tool to be removed from the Pixel Persona, not at all but asking for the Pixel/Photo Persona to be less loaded from its first approach for sure a user could decide to customize his toolbox like we currently are allowed to do but if that user is a Photo Manipulator/Compositor then he should load everything he want (photos) using the Pixel/Photo Persona then switch to the dedicated Manipulation/Composition Persona and do his work from that place. The workflow could be like this: 1- Load an image (or many images) on the Pixel Persona then select the object we want to work with 2- click the Manipulation/Composition Persona then be presented with necessary tools for that precise job, from Selection brush, Flood Selection, to inPainting not forgetting all liquify tools but all those should now be in more advanced mode giving more flexibility and settings to fine tune the work. 3- Do the job and when done click on Apply to switch back to the Pixel/Photo Persona which is the central place and see the result. Then do the same again and again with all other layers who need to be transformed or manipulated 4- the upgrade should give the user the opportunity through a button (like the After/Before) to view full stack of layer in low opacity mode which can be increased or decreased (but the user should only be allowed to work on one layer at a time. 5- All Color Grading work can happen in the Develop Persona or in the Pixel/Photo Persona (here for those who need to control) 6- The Tone Mapping Persona wold be helpful for fine tuning the thing with rich presets, LUT or Manual stuffs. Well all this must be given the possibility to be non destructive, meaning i must be able to select a layer in my stack anytime, at any level of progress and switch back to the Manipulation Persona and redo this or fine tune more that etc... More focus in the Non Destructive aspect will actually increase the value of the software. I know the move you are taking with making Designer and Photo to be kind of sub or Persona for Publisher but still Photo should be improved on its own because Photo compositor/Manipulators won't buy Publisher just because it is not what they do but a more enriched Photo software ... Well Yes many would go for it no complex to what already exist. This topic is open to more adds that can help Devs to figure this out. Even if they don't implement it with 1.7 Beta cycle, it is something they may take serious and consider to fine tune and implement in coming version and we can help here. I'm only 1 Brain, yours are needed for more power, Step out of the Purist areas and come help build great with you original ideas. Hope i've posted in the right place and wish you all the best with improving Affinity. Blessings.
  2. Hello everyone ! Today i want to ask a question that can lead to something interesting for the Affinity suite (Publisher - Designer and Photo). Well, we have all seen the recent updates and some brought satisfaction when other just brought tears but ... that's not my point here ! Just wanted to know : How will you feel if Serif comes up with a Home Persona or a Home Button ? I'm asking because personally it would be very helpful to be able to see actual working/worked on or simply opened/created project on its specific section. I've had hard time to find recent projects etc ... well i make use of the recently opened stuff or recent documents (whatever it is called)... it's good but it's not enough and dedicated place where i would be able to view miniatures of recent documents (i would limit this to .Af files only - no other format) and just click it to open it knowing what i"m opening. if i'm not wrong it is possible on the iPad version (someone to correct me here if needed) so why not on the desktop version and the current Beta Cycle is the best season to test it. Blessings !
  3. As you can see in my signature my Mac Hardware is getting to 'that' age. Affinity Photo quite often responds slowly (slower than I expect it to). Upgrading my setup is a likely cure but - you know what comes next - financially challenging. Originally AP proved to run snappily enough but now goes down regularly (Raf raw files). I have enquired of this site and Serif as to the reason for this with no success. So opinions please. Will a substantial updating eg. iMac 27" maxed out be the solution or is there a mid price option that can do the job. I do know the old adage of top of the range lasts longer but nowI have reached the final upgrade point that seems a little like 'fuzzy logic'. I do not intend moving from Fuji so it is the Raf file handling that is the main ball of contention. Will Serif sort that that for me and the Fuji users or is it just more grunt needed? Confused question, I know but if it wasn't I probably would not be asking it! All responses gratefully received.
  4. When I try to update Designer to version 6.5 I get a popup that says I cannot update. It says, "The contents of the file "affinity-designer' cannot be extracted with this program." Changing the settings in my Mac security preferences doesn't help.
  5. Hi, I hope you can help me: When I started up Affinity version 1.6.2.97-2 today I was informed that there was an update waiting to be downloaded and installed, so I downloaded it. When I started to install it, after a while a report was issued: "Setup failed". After closing the install window I found that the previously working version 1.6.2.97-2 had been deleted from the programs file folders. I still had its installation file and the Product Key so I decided to reinstall it. However the install was halted and a window opened with the message: "Could not write value Affinity.Photo to key \Software\Classes\.cap\OpenWithProgids". Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel." Well I use Affinity on a standalone PC at home, so I guess I am the support personnel. So I tried looking for that entry in the registry and I found that there were two possible entries for \Software\Classes ....., one in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" and another in "HKEY_CURRENT_USER". I tried to add a key called "OpenWithProgids" into both of these areas but regedit refused to accept my input. Then I checked my permission, and confirmed that I was logged in as an Administrator with full access rights. With Administrator rights I should have been able to add a key into the registry, and the installation program for Affinity should inherit that permission from me and also be able to do that too. So I am now at a loss. I did notice however, that version 1.6.2.97-2 was installed in "C:\Program Files\Affinity\Affinity Photo\ " and the attempt to install the update, version 1.6.5.123 was to be installed in "C:\Program Files Affinity\Affinity\Photo\ " I'm not sure if this is relevant, but I thought you should know anyway. Finally, before posting this plea for help, I ran the MS trouble shooter for known issues with Affinity installations and upgrades. The following is the header text displayed prior to running the MS application: During the installation of the Affinity range on Windows, the following issues can be flagged. Please see below the descriptions and possible mitigations available. Unable to upgrade applications - "There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package." This is a known issue with MSI based installers on Windows. Microsoft have a tool to repair corrupted install databases. - Please see https://support.microsoft.com/help/17588/fix-problems-that-block-programs-from-being-installed-or-removed I did run the MS application but id did not list Affinity in it's output. When I checked I noticed that the C:\Program Files\ folder did not contain an "Affinity" sub-folder any more, and I assumed from that the registry did not contain any reference to Affinity either.
  6. Hello I'm new here and unfamiliar with marketing practices of serif.com. I noticed Affinity Designer is at v1.6 and often I've noticed software tends to end major version lifetimes before actually reaching v1.9.9 sub-versions. With that in mind, will existing users get Affinity Designer v2 for free or will they need to re-purchase access for it? In either case, does anybody know how long it may be until v2 is released and should I simply wait until then before buying? I didn't see any announcements about v2, but I may not be looking in the right places.
  7. Hello, I had saved my work to reopen on my other laptop but needed to download the newest version. After completing this, i opened my existing work only to find fonts missing and my work was scrambled. Any help would be appreciated.
  8. What is the official update policy for Photo and Designer?
  9. This is just an idea for later versions of Affinity Photo; I was thinking it would be really nice to have Lightroom Presets compatible with later versions of affinity photo. Although they are different applications, they are still similar so maybe Lightroom Presets could become usable in Affinity photo! (Just an idea but would be very useful) Kind regards! Hanan
  10. 1. The Most marketplace is requesting .ai file format, is it possible to export file format to .ai? I hope marketplace slowly can accept .afdesign next. 2. Is it possible to shorten the file format? maybe .ad .afd .afde or other shorther formats. it is just my thinking, may be a further development material. Thank You
  11. Hey Guys, I couldnt seem to find an answer on this....what is the upgrade pricing policy? I see the current price of the software is $39 and I am very interested, however it appears 1.6 is right around the corner. ARe upgrades free of charge or are they available at a discounted rate? I purchased lightroom outright and still unsure if that was the right move as opposed to paying monthly. Thanks!
  12. I thinking of buying the Affinity Designer application and I would like to know: - Can I Install in all the computers that I use (at the moment one Desktop and one Laptop)? There is a limit? Or the limit is the user only? - Do you sell direct (meaning not buying in the Apple App Store)? - Do you have special prices for upgrading? - In future minor upgrades it all by the App Store or direct download? - Is there a direct email for support? - How does this work or where can I find more info? Thanks!
  13. I opened Affinity Designer today and got the message to download the new version. When I clicked on the link, I got an error message that the page wouldn't open. How do I get this update? (Also, I've opened the program a number of times to see the link, and the message isn't appearing anymore, so I don't know the URL for this download.) Marge Roberts
