Affinity Photo (Version 1.5.2) - April 27, 2017


 


 


 


Hello,


 


We would like to build a Macro that includes different layers to build some sort of 3D image impressions including a separate background. Below you'll find the exact steps we've taken so far:


 


 


 


A. MACRO PROCESSING


 


1) Drag and drop a .jpg image into Affinity Photo


 


2) Activate Macro


 


3) Document --> Resize Document to 560px x 395px, Units: Pixels, DPI: 450, Resample: Bilinear, Resample activated/ticked --> Resize


 


4) Document --> Resize Canvas --> 640px x 640px, Units: Pixels, Anchor: Center --> Resize


 


5) Click on image with cursor/arrow --> Document --> Flatten


 


6) Transform --> S: -3 Degrees


 


7) C&P image, switch to last layer and Transform --> S: +3 Degrees


 


8) Move edited image (of last/lowest layer) accordingly and enter H-Value with a Delta of -20px


 


9) Effects --> Gradient Overlay


 


10) Layer --> New Layer --> Arrange --> Move to Back


 


11) Choose Flood Fill Tool --> Click into empty area --> Effects --> Gradient Overlay --> Type: Radial


 


12) Document --> Flatten


 


13) Stop Recording Macro


 


14) Add To Library --> Enter Macro name and hit OK --> Don't save the document


 


 


 


B. BATCH PROCESSING


 


1) File --> New Batch Job process and choose "Save as JPEG"


 


While the above steps (1 – 14) work perfectly fine when doing everything manually in Affinity Photo, it doesn't so when executed via Macro. To see the difference between Manual vs. Macro refer to the ZIP-Attachment below.


 


 


 


C. QUESTION


 


How can we build a Macro so that the final image looks EXACTLY like the one shown under manual conditions?


 


 


 


Thanks,


Pat

Hi Pat

 

There are some issue with resizing in macros which is a large part of the macro so this is the most probable cause. The developers are already aware of macro issue with resizing so hopefully a fix to this will be seen in a future release

 

thanks

Hello!

I am having the same issues. Do you know when this problem is going to get fixed? It is annoying since we still need Photoshop to do this kind of job.

Please keep us updated. Thanks.

Affinity Photo (Version 1.6.6) Status - November 7, 2017

 

Hi Leigh,

 

It's been more than six months now.

 

Please confirm that the existing Batch Job bug in your new Affinity Photo (Version 1.6.6) has been resolved 100%. Otherwise, customers will still have to rely on Photoshop to perform basic batch processing. To verify whether your batch processing works as expected (and clearly discussed in full detail) follow the steps as shown further above in this thread.

 

Thanks!
Pat
