  1. I watched a tutorial on changing eye color. In the tutorial they showed you to use the elliptical tool to outline the iris of the eyes. He just dragged the elliptical tool and it fit the shape he was drawing around. It doesn't do that for me! Why? When I try to do it, it moves around and doesn't come close to fitting the iris. I tried using the move tool to change the size but that does nothing. I read hold shift and drag... nope nothiing Help??? <sigh> (the tutorial I watched is here:
  2. Awesome... the gradient worked great. The name of the book is Bitter Prophecy so I wanted to convey the "bitter" with some darkness within the font. Thanks so much. Can you tell I'm still learning my way around. I tried so many different ideas on my project that I crashed the app, rofl.
  3. Wow, this is fab!! Thanks! Some of that may be a bit above my pay grade right now, lol... but I'll learn it!!
  4. omg Thanks for the Resources ! I got stuck in the fonts already, rofl. Fabulous info, thanks!
  5. Great, that sort of worked I can enlarge the first letter, but I wanted to enlarge it so part of it was below the other text and part above, does that make sense?
  6. I'm on a Win10 computer. I'm an affinity photo newbie I'm working on a book cover and I want to have a sort of marbleizing of color, or a swirl of a darker shade within the color of the text of the title. I've tried adding shadows, and I can do that to the outside of the text, but not having much luck on the inside.
  7. When I create a Title on my project (a book cover), I can click on "character" to change the size etc. But how can I do this to only one letter? I want to enlarge the First Letter of each word, but if I use a select tool to select only that letter, the character items don't work. I tried just selecting the letter, then clicking on "move" but only the selection box changes size, not the letter? Obviously I'm missing something
  8. Well, hey, why doesn't my infinity photo look like this? all I have on the left side is a double row of tools... none of those colors and swatches, et al! Hmmmm
  9. Sorry folks, it must have been my computer. I shut it down, came back later, and it worked <gah>
  10. I tried both the frame text and the artistic text and all I get is a faint outline of the letters no matter which font I choose! The layer is set to 100% opacity and Normal. I'm stuck.
  11. I'm creating an ebook cover and am ready to add the Title. I picked a new layer and clicked on the Text icon, I see the text choices on the tool bar, picked the one I want, but can't type it onto the layer. What did this newbie do wrong now? lol. I'm on a win10 computer and working with Affinity Photo.
  12. Ah, so if you just pick "new layer" it won't work, you have to pick "new FILL Layer"! Gadzooks! and thanks!! And to flip something on ONE layer, go to Arrange... got it. You're a lifesaver!
  13. I hear that. I didn't come to Infinity Photo from photoshop. I was using Paint.net which has layers but no Mask Layers, so got this but I can't even apply a color to an object in here. I am NOT getting it and am getting totally frustrated. you'd think simple things like the paint bucket would be universal... pick a color, click the area you want that color to go, and boom... color. But it just doesn't work. I am now working on a group of layers ... I have a girl on one layer and a butterfly on another layer. I need to flip the butterfly so it's facing the other direction. I turn off the layer with the girl, select the layer with the butterfly, go to document, click on horizontal flip... yay it works BUT when I turn the girl back on... she flips too! Holy crap batman! I'm going to bed before I delete the whole darn thing.
