Hi Strubbel1970,

Thank you. We are already aware of this issue and are looking into it. Please give us a couple days to address it since it must be handled in a different way than for regular Mac App Store users. This same issue is already being followed here.

OK, I know I asked the same question yesterday, but as it remains unanswered:

 

Would anyone care to enlighten me as to the Mac procedure for the installation of the bonus material?

 

Greetings from

Once you have downloaded the free content each zip file has instructions in an included PDF as to how to install it or use it in the app. Each one is different.

Hi Merluza,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

It's possible that there was some issue with the new 1.6 trial and we have temporarily removed it, keeping the previous one (1.5.2) available.

Let me check what's going on.

 

[EDIT] The 1.6 trials are not available yet. We will release them later (no eta) so we can include a couple fixes for issues detected after the 1.6 release.

 

Many thanks for your reply.

Ah, OK!

 

Thanks a bundle, Patrick!

And thanks for the free content. However, I wanted to note that the "tom-chalky-handcrafted-fonts-textures" download is needlessly huge in file size - most of the PNGs in it are not compressed at all. I recommend anyone who downloads it to run the PNGs through ImageOptim (on Mac) or PNGGauntlet (on windows).

I noticed one potential drawback when running these PNGs through ImageOptim on Macs if one is using the default ImageOptim Preferences > General setting to strip PNG metadata from the files: that removes their color profiles (all set to sRGB IEC61966-2.1 from what I can tell).

 

For some uses that might be undesirable, so to be on the safe side, it might be a good idea to consider disabling that option at least temporarily when compressing this huge batch of PNGs. It will reduce the file size savings somewhat -- I am seeing "only" 38-45% savings on some of them, but on most others it still saves ~99% so it is well worth doing.

Where did Affinity Photo 1.6.0 go?

 

I must have missed something, but I can't find any comment on this in this thread nor in the beta forum. 

Both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo are moving from 1.5.x to 1.6 versions, and, while AD starts at the logical 1.6.0, AP jumps to 1.6.6.

 

This is of very little importance, but still tickles my OCD somewhat.

Affinity Photo codebase (released through the iPad has already got from 1.6.0 to 1.6.5. This implies that Affinity Photo desktop is later, so we chose 1.6.6

 

Affinity Designer has not been released on any platform before yesterday, so we called it 1.6.0. This is also based on the same codebase as photo 1.6.6 but there are a lot fewer people exchanging files between designer and photo than between iPad and Mac, so we wanted to give the desktop Photo owners confidence that it had all the same fixes as the live iPad version. In that respect we should do a 1.6.6 iPad update when we can, but it's not high priority as of today.

Tickled my OCD for weeks through the beta, but it's a fair compromise, as calling them all 1.6.0 except for the live iPad feels wrong, as does launching them all as 1.6.6 on desktop...

You have a video out about an Epic skies bonus pack. I did not see that anywhere. Is there a link?

Thanks again

 

If you've been using Designer or Photo for a while you will probably have switched off the Welcome Screen.

Start Affinity Photo, go Help - Welcome and the popup will show.  The big panel on the left is a 3 part slider - either wait or use the button on the side to go to the 3rd panel which has a button that takes you to the Affinity Site.  If you haven't done so, you'll need to create an account (also for Designer downloads), but it's there that you'll find the free downloads.  All packages come with an instruction PDF of how to install/use them and I believe even with video examples.

 

For Designer the process is similar, but the link to the free goodies is on the SECOND pane instead of the third.

 

If you've been using Affinity from v1.5 you'll find that you already have the Photo macros pack and the Designer grade-ui-kit - not sure if there has been any update to them since 1.5.

 

So there :)

MEB,

I am using MAC OS Sierra. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi photoShooter,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

No you don't have to purchase it again. Which OS are you using? macOS or Windows?

I have Affinity Photo 1.5.2 and I do not see any link to update to 1.6. Or do I have to purchase Affinity Photo again?

If you're a Mac user, use the Updates option in the Mac App Store. If you're a Windows user, the app will automatically find the update on launch; alternatively, log into your Affinity Store account and press the 'Download' button against the item in your order history.

 

All 1.x updates are free for existing owners of any 1.x version. Version 2.0, when it eventually arrives, will be a paid-for upgrade (but the 1.x versions won't stop working, so upgrading will be entirely voluntary).

Is it possible that I miss the preset filters like Acid Bath, Dramatic, Maximum Grid etc in the 1.6.6 version? I mean the ones in Tone Mapping Personal: Presets ->

Thank you Alfred. Mac user. Should the App Store put up a notification? Didn't get that.

I did, but as is often the case with the MAS it didn't show up until about 10 hours after the update went live. I think this is because Apple doesn't 'push' the notifications out all at once to everybody to reduce the load on their servers.

 

Sometimes, I don't get notifications for up to a couple of days after the release is available, but opening the MAS app & clicking the Updates tab will always show them.

I'm most excited to see the ability to Unlock All on the list of new features! I've tried it out and live the way it works!

Something I've noticed though, the shortcut for Unlock All does not work if I use the CTRL+ALT+SHIFT on the right side of the keyboard, I've got to use the keys on the left side of the keyboard. I'm not sure if that is intentional or consistent with the way shortcut keys work.
