Smart Objects for Mockup and Portfolio Reasons

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I would like to buy your Affinity Photo and use it instead of Photoshop, but the most important thing for me are smart objects which I can use in photoshop for mockups to portfolio.... There are many free psd mockups for graphic designer, so we can just add some layer to the smart object, and it will be displayed on the 3d mockup.

Now the question is -- Is it also possible in Affinity Photo?

Thanks

Hi Guys! 

This is nice one, I know everyone goes functionality but this one is also of a great necessity. 

Will Affinity 1.7 offert possibilities to create mockups? Or should we wait another year? 

I'm not talking smart objects but more focused on what is life saving for Graphic designer. 

If no way to work on smart objects yet... Please put something will enable us to upgrade and do better. 

It's not funny to design with Affinity then proceed with Photoshop when we try to not use it. 

@Ben, @MEB, @MikeW@Fatih19 any input regarding this?

I've never used smart objects. I see no need for what I use an image editor for.

I see., maybe a preference but it's really of great interest for a lot of graphic designers out there. 

I have browsed a little bit and found that there is a tool already existing in both photo and designer that can make this possible but requires a particular attention to become usable. 

Check here https://www.trailway.co/blog/live-perspective-filter-in-affinity-tutorial

À tune up of that tool will save life of many creators using Affinity products when needed to share or publish their work on portfolio or social networks.

I have no preference one way or the other. It's just not something I would use for work. The only mockups I have made have been (mostly) product box-shots to show other users how to do it. If I were ever to do it again I might try using the perspective filter in APhoto, but I haven't yet even tried it.

 

Smart Objects as regards Photoshop support has been requested before. Once linking is supported, placing an AD file into another AD file (or an APhoto file in AD or whatever combination) is like Smart Objects.

I am curious about what else you need tweaking. Would you please explain what you mean?

 Hi @p_Mac

I mean just to make it more user friendly and less technical than it is and how smart objects are. 

Everyone should find it easy and fun to be used thus allowing anyone to not only be creative with his own design with mockup too. 

I believe few designers would like to specialize on creating mockup base and make money selling it or just sharing to help others
