    Color B/W Photos

    How do I get the image better when I color it different colors using the color palette? Also for other images as well thanks. what tools would help in affinity designer to do this??
  3. Hi Guy, Thanks for the bundle, very helpful. For what it's worth your documents are opening fine for me, however I can see that the Photo team have put in a fix in the vicinity of the crash site in the last few days for a 'sporadic crash'. At the moment I don't have any background on it but I'll find out more next week and if there's anything of interest I'll let you know, otherwise it'll just be a case of waiting for the next build.
  4. Hi BigA, I'm glad you are up and running again. Thanks for the additional information.

    Introduce Yourself

    I am not one of the “experienced people” for photo editing, but I have found the Photo Workbook really helpful when trying to do some of the things that it describes. One can try something until it works. The extensive library of Affinity Photo tutorials is excellent and covers so much. For me sometimes - particularly when I was just getting started and didn’t have a clue about the workspace - they go too fast to grasp what is going on (which panel, which tool, “where is invert?”) until we have galloped much farther through the session. But there is always “repeat.” The forums are superb. So many really nice people who can figure anything out!! I think that learning the workspace (layers, filters, swatches, styles, assets, brushes, etc.) is the key. For me the book has been really helpful because “fast forward” just means turning the page.
  7. No, I was not using the 32 bit. sorry if I overlooked this.
  8. This works in the Node Tool as long as all of the selected Objects are Smart Shapes, as seen in the attached screenshots. Best regards!

  10. Alternatively, look in the Layers panel for the Hamburger menu!
  11. Look in the Hamburger menu for the Layers panel.
  12. I am new to Affinity Photo for IPad. I have edited my raw photos and saved them in the Affinity App. I would like to use the online print service Adorama Pix to make a photo book of my select prints, but I am having difficulty in uploading my photos from Affinity Photo App. When I go to upload my photos on the Adorama Pix website, Affinity Photo App does not appear as an option. How can I get access to my photos to upload them on Adorama Pix. Thank you.
  13. I sometimes (well, more than sometimes) add a node to the Curves Adjustment curve when my intent was to drag an existing node. May I suggest that the cursor change when selecting a node vs adding one?

    Do Not Adjust Your Set

    Hi John, This was achieved by using multiple layers. The first 2 were the standard dispersion techniques using identical layers, one with a white mask, and the other black. Masking out areas with dispersion brushes. The result was then blurred slightly to help the colour merge. On one layer I used the COLUMN MARQUEE tool on the woman then copied that and stretched it out across to the TV set. (1 vertical row of pixels stretched out). On one layer I used a ZOOM BLUR on full range and centered it just behind the woman. On one layer I used the RIPPLE effect on a low setting (just enough to see the waves). OVERLAY BLEND. GAUSSIAN BLUR. On one layer I used MOTION BLUR on a mid setting. After that it was a case of adjusting the opacities of all layers until I got the desired result with this picture. Made a few colour alterations and used a film grain Nik filter on the master. Hope that explains it. EDIT: One thing I forgot to mention; All modified layers were adjusted using the perspective tool so that they all lined up!
  15. Yes, and if you want to keep the possibility to move one of the components afterwards, keep the "Alt" key pressed during the "Add" operation, it will create a compound as I indicated earlier.
  16. Thanks to both of you for your help, I found the solution to be able to see the angles, you don't have to group the whole thing together but have it added
  17. We’ve been told that IDML import will be added but we’re unlikely to see it in the initial release. INDD import probably won’t be added any time soon, if ever.

    Info crosshairs left behind

    That looks like an ad absurdum argument. When there is value in things remaining, then of course they should remain. But in the case of the info panel, there is no value in the crosshairs remaining when the info panel is dismissed. To get rid of it, the user has to re-initiate the panel and change the selection. In this case, it simply makes sense to hide the crosshairs when the panel is dismissed.
  19. Thanks for your reply Callum
  20. Where in Affinity Photo Beta Win 10 version, is the option to change layer thumbnail size (small, medium, large) ? There is a setting in Edit/Tools/ Tool Handle Size: Small > Largest, but it doesn't' change the layers thumbnail size.

    Do Not Adjust Your Set

    This looks like the distortion effect that I am trying to create. How did you do it? John
  22. Hello Julio666, Instead of grouping the shapes, you can make a compound of them, it will create a unique shape but each object will remain editable and the angle tool will be available.
  23. I tried setting windows profile and affinity photo to sRGB IEC61966-2.1 Unfortunately I am still noticing the difference between the 2 layers. I am not sure what could be the difference between your setup and mine. thanks
  24. I want to work with "Affinity Designer". Right now, I design for cnc with Autocad and Corel and the software of the machines I work with, only read dxf. All my work (for many years) are with cdr, dwg and dxf and I will not be able to use "Affinity Designer" until I can import dxf documents. So please, please, please!!!
  25. It seems that the corner tool doesn't work with groups. Whether this is a bug or "by design" only Affinity developers will be able to say. You will need to select individual shapes within the group, or add the individual shapes to make a single object.
  26. I love Publisher! Great program! But I think there are some things, one could do, to make it even better. Sure, you´re working on that. 1. There must be the possibility to import indd or idml files. This is crucial. 2. What about the option to build a bibliography? Is this already possible? 3. I mentioned it in another place: Footnotes are very important. 4. It would be great having the opportunity to put the actual chapter of a book in the headline of a page automatically (maybe via text field). So I can allways see, in wich chapter I´m working or the reader is reading.
