A few free macros - tested in AFP 1.6 & 1.7 Beta

Recommended Posts

I've been playing around with writing some macros and have decided to share six of them.

1-4.  Turn your pic. into a presentation A4 photo with a white canvas border having room to enter text beneath and a thin black border around the pic. to make it stand out.  Four options to cover Landscape or Portrait for both 3:2 aspect ratio and 4:3 aspect ratio as determined my your camera.

5.  Alpha Channel Sharpening - gives a final delicate sharpening to your photo.

6.  Colour Sketch - turn any colour photo into a 'sketch'.  Final output will need to have the black level adjusted (Adjustment layer, Levels, Black Level) to suit different photos.  Likely it would also work with black and white photos but I haven't tried that.

Tested with AF Photo 1.6 and the beta version of 1.7.

I hope they prove useful.

  • These are nice, thank you. However I've gotten good results with the Colour Sketch, a number of photos I've tried go to a black and white sketch devoid of colour. Any suggested tweak to the macro to keep the colours intact?

I bought Affinity Photo last year and I did not know there were free macros. They are not easy to find in the folders or in the library. Is there a link to re download them on the Affinity Photo download site?

I could not open them once I downloaded them.

Hi railroader124,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
To get the free Force Macro pack go to menu Help ▸ Welcome.... There's a link in one of the pages of the horizontal scroller to get them.
To install the .afmacros files (with an S at the end), go to menu View ▸ Studio ▸ Library, click the small menu icon on the top right of the Library panel and select Import Macros....
