Affinity Photo importing and exporting PSD layer file (OSX)

Recommended Posts

Hello, I was hoping someone might be able to help. I'm fairly new to using Affinity Photo/Design and Publisher on OSX.

Recently, I imported an old PSD template file with multiple layers into Affinity Photo 1.7.3 and it looked absolutely perfect!

After adding a few extra logos as layers, i saved the file as both PSD and also as standard Affinity Photo file (AFPhoto) and for some reason when i open the PSD file, all the extra layers I added are shown, but the source files in those layers are missing (blank). I'm not sure why it would be doing this as when i saved the file everything was showing up correctly. Although when opening the AFPhoto file it all looks fine.

It would be great to have copies of the files in both PSD and AFPhoto format, and I would be very grateful if anyone can help me figure out why the files are missing when exporting and reloading as PSD. Maybe i'm missing a step somewhere, but i though everything would be self-contained in the PSD file when saving?

 

(My only guess is that i copied the layer images files to clipboard and then pasted this into the layer files. Could this be part of the problem?)

 

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

I think I've figured out how to fix it.

I re-saved the file as PSD with all the newly added logo layers shown/unhidden, (however keeping the parent logo group layer hidden), and now everything shows up correctly.

Hope this helps anyone else :)
