How do I re download the free macros for Affinity Photo & Designer?

Recommended Posts

I've just done a fresh Windows install, and forgot to keep the downloaded macros that I saved, for both Affinity Photo & Design, when you install them for the first time. It's not allowing me to re-download them. Is there any way I can get them?

I thought maybe they would be in my library, but I'm guessing after a fresh C Drive install, everything is now at a default setting.

Only purchased Photo & Designer a few days ago, so the answer may be obvious.

Thanks in advance,

Kiarian

Hi Klarian,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

You should have received an e-mail titled Affinity order confirmation - XXXXXXX after your purchase (do a search for it in your e-mail account). That e-mail contains a green button labelled "Get Macro Pack" which links to a page from where you can download it again.

There's a download link in John Hoy's post here. I don't know why there isn't a permanent link in a prominent place on the Affinity site, since the macros are useless to anyone who doesn't own a copy of Affinity Photo.

Even before that link was made available, people using pirated versions could have found them easily enough. Maybe it's just me, but I think the piracy itself is a much bigger worry than the possibility that a few of those people might help themselves to a resource that's freely available to all legitimate users.

Thanks for the help MEB. I forgot I saved them to a folder on another drive. Appreciate the help.

Just checked my account. Yes, there are the green icons to get the macros pack. Good to know.

Hi Pennymaker,

Go to the Welcome Screen (menu Help ▸ Welcome). One of the pages of the horizontal scroller has a link to claim the Free Macro Pack. Click on it to be redirected to a page on the Affinity Store. Login to your account to download them again or create an account if you don't have one already.
