  1. A message from our sponsor... kreynum1.mp4
  2. End of part 1 OK ten thousand words, is it worth continuing? Or shall we just hit delete? Open to critic.
  3. Added map and more of the story. A.W.I.P. That will be added to as I develop this story and artwork.
  4. The clock ticks and a new creation is bourn.
  5. Thanks for the suggestions. The margins I can adjust to fit better with images so I will try this out for the next chapter. The colour of the text I will play around with, maybe white text on black or dark backgrounds or black text on a faded paper background. Things to consider, so again thanks for the input.
  6. Agreed, popularity is not the goal, push the boundaries and open the creative mind to possibilities. Thanks for the comment, we are always learning.
  7. Thought I would share this story, not sure if there is much of a call for this type of content nowadays. This intro story is inspired by my partial play through of RED Dead Redemption 2 on PC. I have used the setting for the story from the game where I then did a photo shoot taking pictures from inside the game world and then enhancing them using Affinity Photo and Designer. I was very pleased with the level of detail shown by the creators of this game world and this prompted me to write a series of RED Dead Stories. Digital Media Only Red Dead Vamporia.pdf
  8. Happy New Year, from Digital Media Only... Chronomica2.mp4
  9. Digital Media Only is finishing the year on a good note. Happy Christmas.
  10. Exercise with Xenon Ok so I wanted a forest design for my latest eco–vid. Started playing around and came up with a surprising glimpse of creativity. Process: Open Affinity photo. Download a nice forest photo from the internet. Copy, paste and flip horizontal, drag and fix to form a symmetrical composite. I purchased the Xenon brush pack from Affinity store and used them to create effects. I finished with a galactic brush to add the vibrant green mist. This started out as a simple play with brush and finished with an interesting picture. Not complex just try and see. It’s not rocket science, just good old fashioned work and play.
  11. Have included the utube link so it can now play.
  12. MP4 and AVI not supported. Have included Utube link REBOOT1.avi
  13. PDF features Many years ago a group of talented individuals got together and came up with a software product called Affinity Photo. Affordable professional photo package for everyone, wouldn’t it be really great if developers could create a PDF plus software document creator to meet the growing needs of future consumer publishing. Print is dead or dying, the future of digital media publishing has never looked better. Remember it is question of what we can do rather than what cannot be done. Anything is possible.

  14. Thanks I did wonder about that when I posted it. Not a big deal, the forum does a good job of displaying peoples creations.
  15. Thanks for feedback, the interesting thing I noticed when uploading this is that the colours were changed a little when compered to original but still looked ok.
  16. Just noticed some of the other points raised in this post, pressed a few buttons eh. I do have a wooden desk, twenty years old and still going strong. Look I am not postulating that we live in a perfect world; however there are some serious issues that need to be looked at regarding old habits not liking any type of change. Beef and cattle are responsible for a lot of land clearing, so is a host of other commercial products that put food on the table, although it’s more a case of putting cars, boats, yachts and cruise ships in folks garages now. Electricity is already in our homes and no one wants to return to the Stone Age, well maybe some of us would. It is all about doing what we can when we can and questioning old habits that are no longer in our best interests. Software support: I have Affinity photo and can honestly say that I have never had to hit that print button, digital alternatives work very well. It’s just difficult to support software were it makes it easy for consumers to hit that print out. We have computers on every desk, tablets, phones and digital photo albums; the infrastructure is already there we are just not transitioning. PDF files are the greatest strength for Affinity Publisher. I just wish that it were cantered more around this in the form of supporting digital only, offering a suite of options like page transitions and power point display presentations to promote use of PDF as a fully digital world standard practice. This is where developers could really tip the scales in a more constructive direction, ecology in harmony with technology.
  17. Missed the point I do have books, but no longer buy them, choosing digital alternatives. I do take paper products like post or items outside of my control but only if I have to. Physical printing as continued usage is responsible for land clearing and destruction of habitat for a consumer product that has alternative outlets. Recycling is like ladling water from a sinking boat, fully support it however not the solution. Seven plus billion folks in this world, all wanting paper products, do the maths, it’s a lot of trees and I quite like breathing clean air. Think about one person printing one A4 sheet of paper, multiply that by several billion and you see the issue. I live near a pristine environment and make no bones about wanting it to stay that way. This is my opinion and moving forward I wish to support digital media only rather than physical printing, I see nothing strange about that.
  18. Affinity Publisher Thanks Affinity for the invitation to purchase publisher with 30% discount. I did beta test this product for six months but stopped after some concerns upon environmental grounds. I started to feel that this product would encourage people to hit the print button for physical printing and as I operate under a green label I am at this time unable to endorse or support an indirect practice of land clearing for plantation trees needed to support people’s desire to publish. I have major environmental concerns which is why I support digital media only. I love your Photo and Design components and am quite happy in supporting these.
  19. Thanks for the advice I shall implement some if not all your suggestions wherever possible.
  20. All suggestions are most welcome. English is by definition a mixed bag so it is what it is.
  21. Exercise was to write a story, illustrate, and write some more. Grammar and or punctuation are an important thing to strive for to the best of your ability.
  22. Write a 500 word story. Illustrate using AP. Write another 500 hundred words.
