Some new features for affinity photo


1. Possibility to open an infinite number of layers. Because right now from 15 16 I can no longer have access to background layers


2. Have the ability to make a quick selection on a layer mask.


3. Copy paste a layer mask onto other images simply by dragging it onto a layer.


4. Integrate multiple images on a project so you can crop an image without having to do it on other projects, save and add an image.
Simply have in a document several separate images to cut or retouch separately to then add to the single image slide over each other.


5. Make an affinity photo interface closer to the computer interface


6. Make a more simplified interface with the interface selection directly in the interface the basic interface of retouching


7. And move the retouching filters to a search bar at the top with search by name. Because at the moment it is difficult to find a filter quickly by spanking all.


8. Add more fonts to the text. Or the possibility to download via internet


9. Decrease or move the adjustment filter


10. Have the ability to modify and move each interface, icon and search bar as we wish in the interface


11. Have a closer interface than Photoshop CC if possible .. with all the features, retouch, filter at the same places instead of looking right to left

1. I am not sure what you mean about not having access to background layers. The Layers panel scrolls, so it can accommodate as many layers as you want.

2. Have you tried using Affinity Photo's Quick Mask function?

3. Dragging layers in the Layers panel changes their position in the stacking order. To copy a mask to another layer the simplest way to do this is to duplicate it (CMD+J on a Mac) & drag the copy to the mask position on the other layer. You can also copy it, select the other layer, click the "Insert inside the selection" button on the Insert Target toolbar item, & then paste.

4. If you mean document linking instead of embedding, this has been requested but there is no eta for its addition.

5. Too vague to know what you mean.

6. Also too vague -- what do you mean by "interface selection"?

7. By "the top" do you mean into the main Affinity toolbar, or (on Macs) into the system toolbar? Keep in mind there is limited horizontal space for all these options, particularly for those working on laptops with smaller screens.

8. Affinity does not include any fonts. It accesses whatever fonts are installed on the system. So to add more fonts, use whatever provisions your OS includes to add them, like Font Book on Macs.

9. If you mean the Adjustments Studio Panel, it can be moved or resized just like all the other Studio panels.

10. Most UI elements are already movable & customizable. What specifically do you want to modify or move?

11. Affinity is not Photoshop. It has a different (& more limited) feature set, some features PS does not have, & a unique "Persona" organizational model. But it is not organized "right to left" so this is yet another thing that is unclear about what you mean.
