I don't have time to search entire forums or the interwebs to see if someone else has ever suggested this feedback before. So I offer my apologies if my suggestions have already been covered.

 

1) Please can you provide a feedback function WITHIN the application it self. It's incredibly frustrating to have to use out dated methods of signing up to god-awful web-forums which just leads to nonconstructive replies of un-thought out opinions and arguments. It also allows you to correctly link feedback (and abuse) to the software license of the user and even categorise the feedback so you can easily see which areas are causing most concern to the user base.

 

2) Please can you fix the mouse icon when painting in masks in the develop mode. The standard OS mouse icon does not feel accurate to paint with. Also a nice to improve if possible: Painting often feels sluggish to see the red tint forming. If there is a way to make this feel more responsive without upgrading an existing 32GB RAM I7 processor machine, that would be lovely please.

 

3) Cropping in Develop mode is missing an "ok" or "finished" button. It's frustrating to be sitting back with my tablet, controlling everything then having reach over to the keyboard which I moved to one side, just to hit <enter>. I don't want to map the enter key to my tablet device as it's never used for anything else! if you simply put a button in the UI it will mean I can just move the mouse there and click! perhaps I've missed a trick that does what I want, but then that would mean it's not obvious and intuitive to the user.

 

4) Please update the flash function for uploading files on this forum. Who runs flash in 2017? Browsers auto block flash from running by default because it's nasty.

 

5) More of a question then a suggestion, but is there a way to rename the overlays in the Overlays tab in Develop mode? I have 3 gradient overlays, all with the same name! that's very confusing to simple minds like myself.

 

6) Although I generally hope you spend more time fine tuning what you have already developed, instead of just rushing out new features, it would be nice if there was an in-application function for browsing image files, with a nice big preview of the image and EXIF data, which you can then double click to open it in the develop mode. I don't think anyone wants all this "importing" and cataloguing rubbish which is very slow. But browsing files within Affinity with a UI that suits photographers that windows/macOS don't offer, would be a great win.

 

Thanks for your time.

 


Went back to Lightroom because the Affinity team don't listen to feedback, instead they'd rather argue and defend themselves rather than just make their program(s) work logically. Why make things more difficult? because thats what Affinity photo does!

Hi RobLW365,

 

Welcome to the Forums :)

 

Your first 2 points would be more suited to be in the Feature Requests section I advise posting them there as the developers monitor it for future updates :)

 

3) double clicking the crop will apply it.

 

4) We will be upgrading the forum in the future.

 

5) Its not currently possible to rename overlays I'm afraid however this has been requested in the past so it may be included in a future update.

 

6) This is more likely to be a feature of our upcoming DAM application than our Affinity Photo.

Hi, RobLW365.

 

Regarding your first point, the help menu in Affinity apps includes a Support item which will launch your default browser & open the top level support page.

 

If you use that & post to the appropriate forum, I think you will find that both the staff (sometimes including the people that actually write the code) & many knowledgeable users are quite willing to help you with any issues you have. Most posts are responded to within hours, not days. Almost everyone posting here is courteous, respectful of others, & focused on providing constructive replies.

 

Aside from the general privacy & security concerns of linking feedback to personally identifiable data like a software license key, that is not possible for the Mac versions because they have no such key. Like all other apps sold through the Mac App Store, the Affinity apps are linked to a user's Apple ID, which for what should be obvious reasons Apple does not share with sellers.


Affinity Photo 1.7.1, Affinity Designer 1.7.1, Affinity Publisher 1.7.1; macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 iMac (27-inch, Late 2012); 2.9GHz i5 CPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M; 8GB RAM
Affinity Photo 1.7.1.143 & Affinity Designer 1.7.1.1 for iPad; 6th Generation iPad 32 GB; Apple Pencil; iOS 12.3.1

I really don't like it how most of the words I type in English are showing up as being spelled wrong. They are spelled right but it still says they are not working.

Where are you typing them - in this forum or in one of the programs?  If it's the latter, which one?
