Hi there!

 

I've been trying to download the upgrade but I cannot find it anywhere. I have Affinity Designer on a Mac.

 

I turned my firewall off as per instructions but I still don't see the update in my Welcome page, I only have 3 slides, two about Affinity Photo and one about the book.

 

Any other suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

That's very surprising, to have the 3 screens on the welcome screen but not the content with the claim now button.

 

Please can you confirm the version displayed in the 'Help' menu option 'About..' dialog and your language and computer locale/country

I had the same problem. I upgraded  Designer to 1.6  and all I was was the palin welcome screen.like JosV.

I had to disconnect my vpn for it to work.

Thanks @Biggles007 

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums. 

I was not aware that a vpn could block the call for the welcome feed. Can you please tell us any more about your setup?

Just a quick 'tip to the hat' to the Devs out there.

Thank you very, very much to include the existing users into the free goodies incentive.


Awesome! :)


PS. can't wait to see what you've done with the publishing tool you're developing. There are still a few quirks in Photo + Designer, but if the Publisher works as nice as the other two, I'm all in, too! :)

Hey, I cant seem to have the Welcome screen offering me the Update and the new packs for Affinity photo. I even disabled my F-secures Firewall and then opened the "welcome..." and still have only Affinity designer and affinity photo for ipad adds included on the two different slides.

@Jasim

Your screenshot shows that you have not downloaded 1.6.0, that is the update prompt! The content comes with 1.6, so is not in the welcome screen before you have updated. Is there a reason your have not updated?

Is it also correct to assume that the Texturizer Pro brushes are the same as the ones I bought from @Frankentoon? I don't mind supporting Enrique's great work, but I don't want to waste time and 'bandwidth' downloading another copy of exactly the same set!

 

 

Hi Alfred,

 

This is printed just under the heading for the EULA

 

"Version 2.0: 7th November 2017"

 

Hope that helps!

I have Affinity Photo 1.6.6 for Macintosh. Am running on MacBook Pro w. High Sierra, 8 MB RAM, plenty of disk space. 

 

Cannot access bonus material as I do not have Store account and cannot find any way to create one. Would like to take advantage of offer that expires today, Nov. 16, but your system provides no way to do so. 

 

The suggestion to access the Welcome splash page via Help does bring up the page. But when the "Claim Now" is clicked, the Welcome is simply refreshed...

 

Will you extend offer or provide a way to create store account, please?

Ich habe Affinity neu gekauft. Ich kann aber das Macro-Pack nicht installieren. Die Anleitung auf englisch verstehe ich nicht - außerdem sieht mein Eröffnungsbild anders aus als in der Anleitung angegeben. Wo finde ich eine genaue Installations-Anweisung auf deutsch mit Foto-Erklärung?

The instructions are here

Just returned after a work mission abroad, and discovered I would have completed one more step to get the free content: not only download the upgrade but also install end ececute it.

I have 3 licenses for Photo and one for Designer.

Is there any other way to request the free contents?

Thank you very much

Got the information about the new version and the bonus material beginning of November. Downloaded the upgrade on Nov. 3rd, installed and used it directly. Haven't found any download link for the bonus material on my account. As some others had also problems with the bonus material I was waiting for a solution. As I do not see any solution I would appreciate if you could provide a donwload link by mail. 

 

Solved: Had disabled the start-up panel. Found the download link after enabling it and downloaded succesfully
