Photoshop to Photo app limitations

Recommended Posts

My Creative team has pointed out the following issues when porting to After Effects

1 All vector files and bitmaps fail to export when effects like shadows etc are applied to it. Also the process is long and complex.
   -file sizes will be larger for matching composition size requirements in after effects and in turn will be a performance issue for hardware.
2. no PDF for 1 single artboard.
3. Camera raw processing has bad results

Artboards in APhoto? These are only available in ADesigner.

Export Persona - single PDF/PNG/JPEG/... for single artboard/slice.

You can open a .afdesign file in Affinity Photo, and it can contain Artboards. Or send a .afphoto file to Designer and create the Artboard. Or you can copy an Artboard from Designer and paste it into a Photo document. Or you can create an Artboard in a Photo document using a cleverly constructed macro recorded in Publisher.

Talking about Affinity Photo doesn't automatically rule out having Artboards :)

I'm not sure what that means. You can certainly create a PDF from an artboard, using either File > Export or the Export Persona. Though as Pšenda mentioned it is a bit unusual to use artboards in Affinity Photo.

Are you really seriously? And after artboards created with other applications, will require their export from APhoto?

I'm not saying I would usually do it. But yes, it can be done.
