Where Affinity Photo need improvement

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of good things about Affinity Photo but in some areas it falls behind Photoshop.  With a new version on the way, I hope some of these things were fixed.    Macro recording and playback really needs improvement and is too limited.

1) Document and canvas resize won't allow resizing by %

2) The Macro recording is quite poor compared to Photoshop scripts.  Can't copy/paste image layer (Macro will paste the same image copied during recording).

3) Can't record a fill layer with a selected color.

4) Can't record moving an adjustment layer to be a child of another layer.

5) No ability to pause/continue macro playback.  No ability to insert note instructions.

6) Can't record use of plugins with settings (Photoshop can).

7)  Once a step is recorded in a macro, it can't be deleted, just unchecked.  To shorten the macro, you must start over.

8) Selection visibility should be able to be turned off and on while still active.

Sure they do, you just have to write % yourself. But I have understood this does not work in macros.. (and yes, there are some things missing in the document size function)
