I have the same issue. I opened jpg photos iin Affinity Photo, created borders on them, flattened them, saved as afphoto, then made them smaller from 300 to 72 dpi. They exported blurry as jpg. When I do the same thing in other programs they are fine. Affinity did not give a a choice of whether to resample, it just resamples them (Photoshop lets you decide). I stopped using Affinity Photo for this task. If anyone has a solution please let me know! Thanks.

Thanks but I can't a find a way to turn OFF resampling. It's not an option in the Export menu. The resampling may be causing the lossiness. Photoshop gives you an option to turn it off. In resize document you can turn it off but I want to export to jpg, and in the Export it's just on. It gives you choices of what kind of resampling to do, but I don't want to resample. I tried first resizing it with the resampling off, but hit the same snag when exporting.

If you want to change nominal dpi without resample you have to do it with Document>Resize Document... command.

As you found out, export dialog allows only resample (which is a shortcoming IMHO – probably because  AP had trouble with dpi change without resample feature and feature was later added to Resize Document but not to export dialog...)
