One of the sources I use supplies images in PNG, EPS, PSD and SVG format.

 

What is the best format for importing images into Affinity Designer drawings?

It will depend on how the files were created & what each of the formats contain, but in general I think SVG is likely to be the most useful for preserving vector shapes & the layer hierarchy.

Thank you all for the replies!

 

The aim was indeed to retain vector/layer data so that the imported images integrate and become an integral part of the whole design - SVG and PSD seem to work best.

 

Cheers :)
