Affinity Photo improvements for Crop, Export

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new in Affinity Photo: still in my trial period. But I like what I see.

I develop my (Olympus Pen E-P5) raw files in DxO. I like DxO's colours and noise reduction.
I am just scratching AP's surface. At this moment I am cropping my photo's to 10 by 15 cm; 300 DPI.

May I be so bold to ask for some improvements?


I crop to 15 * 10 cm; mostly landscape.
So Crop settings:  'Custom Ratio' 15 x 10 'Thirds Grid'. I made a Preset of that: (Automatic) name: 15 : 10

Improvement: Have AP remember the last used Crop Preset (e.g.: 15 : 10)
Improvement: Also have the arrow keys move the crop area
Improvement: Automatically Rotate the crop area for portrait (e.g.: 10 x 15)

File > Export
AP remembers the last exported document type (e.g. JPG or PNG)
Improvement: Have AP remember the last used Print Size (e.g.: 15 x 10 cm in px)
Improvement: Have AP remember the source directory (of File Open) and
                         the target directory (of Export)

Improvement: Make a shortcut for opening the next (source) photo        (Tab ?)
                         Make a shortcut for opening the previous (source) photo (Backspace ?)

Improvement: After importing a number of photos: present them sorted (oldest left).

Ahhh... that would have saved me a lot of time!

Great programme, though!
