Affinity Photo: Guides at Object Center / Edges Feature?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a Graphic Designer with 25 years of experience. yes, I started with Mac Paint...I'm that old! but as other colleagues did, I am saying good bye to Adobe for ever. I hate Subscription plans and also I like the idea that I own my software too. Saying that I am happy that Affinity Designer and Photo are here. I'm very impressed. Even my clients that are very 'photoshop only files please' paranoid never knew that I've been sending them Affinity psd converted files instead so, that's is a plus in my book. 

 

Please bared with me in this one, I'm learning all the features step by step, little by little with these apps. This question I will ask is embarrassing for me because of the simplicity that may be doing it. How I get the guide lines that help me center an image or layers inside a working document? Pixelmator have this in the view tool bar but I can't find it in Affinity Photo. I thought it was the snapping tool but it doesn't work as in Photoshop or Pixelmator! (and AP is way more professional than Pixelmator IMHO). Here's a picture attached to let you know what I'm talking about. Thanks in advance.

Hi albertkinng,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

It is indeed the snapping. To enable it click on the magnet icon on the main toolbar. Make sure Snap to spread and Include spread mid points are checked clicking on the arrow near the icon.

Then simply drag the object to the middle of the page. The smart guides should appear to help you center it.
