    Live tracing is really neccessary if you want to maintain the look of analog hand lettering and logos. Here you can see how it's used and the workflow from paper to digital:

    Like you can see in the vid, having advanced settings to adjust the tracing threshold is key for good results.
     
    Hand lettering is going strong on sites like Instagram, having this feature would make Affinity attractive to a big chunk of people.

    Str2 got a reaction from jmac in Why isn't there a gallery to show works done by users?   
    Almost every creative app does have a gallery reachable from their website to show off the works done by it's users. Why not Affinity?
     
    If you want to browse works done by users, you have to register and check the share your work section. As a visitor i wouldn't bother tbh. This should be made easy.
     
    I browse the forum as a guest quite often, only sign in when posting, so it affects me as user as well.

    Some lean apps for live tracing exist, from the same dev who created the code Inkscape uses (Potrace): http://image-vectorizer.com
     
    The software is usually GPL licensed, but the dev offers licensing for commercial software too. The Affinity team could contact him if they don't want to develop the code themselves. http://www.icosasoft.ca

    Str2 got a reaction from aaanouel in Editing the list of fonts   
    Would it be possible to customize the list of fonts? There are many which i would never use, and rather see the ones i use frequently without having to navigate the whole list to find the fonts. I use AD mainly for logo design and use fonts very frequently. Beeing able to customize the list would be a huge time saver!

    I prefer this version, but just the fill in, not what is supposed to become the black outlines/shadows, just the triangle.

    Str2 got a reaction from Paul Bravery in Introduce Yourself   
    Hi,
     
    I'm a streetart/graffiti artists from germany. As a aficionado of letterforms i got into design, mainly logo design and lettering as a digital extension of my graff love. Things are going very well so far with AD, which i bought a few weeks ago.
    Currently i'm still experimenting with the app, i'll post some stuff i did with it here on the forum soon.
