Hi chill59,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Macros are a set of steps you record to automate a task, which you then can play later so you don't have to do them manually everytime you need to perform it.

In Affinity Photo this can be used to automate several processes/tasks you use frequently.

Take a look a the macros included in the Library (menu View ▸ Studio ▸ Library). Right click on one of the macros - for example Black & White - and select Edit Macro so you can see the steps it performs. The Macro panel will open showing you all the steps listed: in this case it applies a Black & White adjustment and then merges it down.

Check this video tutorial for more details.

Great video; awesome implementation.


Aside from that, I don't like this new feature at all.  :lol:

Being able to re-use oft-repeated steps not only is a huge time-saver, but is what separates pro software from toy software. More importantly, it is the key tool that will allow you to create your own "version" of the tool that is optimally suited to your needs.
