How do I create Thumbnails and Previews of Designer files on a server?

Recommended Posts

As we see more and more user switch to Affinity products, we would like to be able to create Thumbnails and Previews using an automated server process. For most image formats our system uses ImageMagick. Is there any solution? Not necessarily ImageMagick.

Hi Andreas,


I'm not aware of any program that is able to read our native files and display a preview of it.  The only way i can see to do something like this, would be to export the design as a JPG to the same folder you are saving the .afdesign file in.  Then ImageMagick would be able to show the preview of the JPG.
