Placing Copy Write on Photos in batch mode with Affinity V2


Recommended Posts

I purchased Affinity Photo when I asked a friend how to place Copywrite info on 2000 photos. She sent me a how to for Affinity Photo and I purchased it. Now I am lost This is a one off for me. 

following this youtube I have gotten up to where I need to launch Studio off of the View menu. I do not have that option, nor can I find Macro on any menu. PLEASE help! 

Thank you

That is a V1 tutorial

In V2 you will find the Studios (e.g. Macro studio) under the Windows menu not the View menu

Correctly, it is not in the Windows menu but in the menu bar under Window in Affinity Apps.

Ok found it! thanks, but now another issue when following the instructions to after starting the macro to place a file on top of the photo I get cannot record add image. This is what is happening in the video. What am I doing wrong? 

Before you record the Macro open the file that is the copyright and copy the layer. Now record your macro and Paste after choosing the topmost layer. Now when you run the Macro it will paste whatever is on the clipboard into a new layer above the topmost layer (which should be chosen by the macro). If you want to run it later you'll need to copy the original Copyright file's copyright layer before you start.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

I don't think you are doing anything wrong. Rather, macros in V1 support File > Add Image but this seems to be broken in V2. so probably a bug that should be reported if someone has not already done that.

Are you sure that you will need to copy that file to the clipboard again? When I tested this in V2 on my Mac, the macro always pasted what was on the clipboard when the macro was recorded (IOW, the result of the paste, not the action of pasting from the clipboard) not whatever might be on the clipboard at a later time.
