2019 Affinity Photo wish list

Recommended Posts

 I really want and need a smarter brush -- just an adjustable round one similar to my lr5 would do me.
I miss the brush size adjuster on the mouse wheel like Lr5/on1 and a few others -- seems so awkward reaching over to the [ ] keys all the time 
There other little things thought  about only when using the program; however those two are the more important for my workf ---- ummm playflow lol  

So what is on your Affinity photo wishlist ? 

Edit: a bloke should add a photo for interest. Even if only partly edited it is my first pic (second click though) for 2019

The good news is that brush size adjustment already exists in Affinity Photo. The bad news is that the keybind for it is ctrl+alt and L click+R click on your mouse. You can't change it either in your keybinds, which makes it pretty awkward to use unless you are able to make a macro that only needs one button to press. I hope the developers make the feature more user friendly with a simpler macro and/or allow people to actually change the keybind altogether.

First of all, I do love Photo and use it for 99% of image editing. So, my wish list is to eliminate that last 1%:

  1. If I've a copied image on the clipboard and create a new image in Photo, I'd like the created image to be sized to match the copied image - I often copy an image from the internet and need to edit it, but have to crop or increase the "new" image size to make it fit.
  2. I'd like to be able to set the image size without changing the number of pixels. I've tried to use Photo to plan our sitting room furniture, with PS I could set the image size to be the same as the actual room - obviously, the PPI is pretty low(!), but it makes measuring furniture and fitting it on to the plan harder if I'm having to do scaling calculations.
  3. The shadow/highlight tool doesn't seem to do as good as job as PS in lifting the shadows in backlit images.
  4. Finally(!), I'd love Photo to be able to import from a scanner; I understand Windows makes this harder than it should be, but other programs do support it.

Try using File > New from Clipboard.
