  1. Hello, I also went back and did a different workflow and received the same results. Please see the steps below, I'll bold the changed processes. Thank you! Adjusted Photo Mac Steps: I opened two illustrator files in Affinity Designer, got rid of any background layers present, turned on transparency, and then saved as .afdesign files. I then reopened the .afdesign files and resized them in Designer using the settings under Document Setup. I created a new Photo file of 350 x 50 at 100dpi. I opened the two .afdesign files in Photo, which it just opened up. I had to rasterize the collection of layers before I could copy and paste them. I copied and pasted the files over 1 by 1 and didn't need to resize them. I exported the image as a png, leaving all the settings except I changed resample to Lanczos 3 (non-separable) as I read that provides the least about of loss to the quality. The two .afdesign files on the exported png are less clear then the one from photoshop just like before. Resizing the .afdesign files prior to opening them in Photo and then resizing them didn't seem to make a difference. Changed Photo Mac PNG Export:
  2. Certainly! Please see attached. I'm also including the original .ai files as well as as the .png file. Thank you very much for your help! AdobeStock_219290948 [Converted].eps AdobeStock_247964470 [Converted].eps AdobeStock_219290948.ai AdobeStock_247964470.ai
  3. Glad you got it figured out!
  4. Thanks for the information! The font that you are using, is it also the same as the other times? What are your export settings? Was there a specific step you had to do last time to fix the problem? That might help identify the underlying problem. Also, as mentioned by Callum, can you attach a copy of the afphoto file? Thanks!
  5. When you created the new document what were the dimensions and dpi/ppi? You can use the scroll wheel on your mouse, after selecting the magnifying glass, to zoom out until you hit 100% It almost sounds like you may have the dimensions and pixels per inch too low. If you go to the Document menu and then Resize Document what numbers are in the the two boxes with the lock symbol between them and then the number in the DPI box. The image you attached looks like an image quality issue not a layer setting issue. I’ll reply with an explanation about layer blending tomorrow with screen shots. Final question is do you plan on printing this image or just having it in the web?
  6. Do you mean as you’re typing, while looking at the file, after printing, or exporting? If you click on the magnifying glass on the left hand tool list what is the percent that appears in the upper left hand corner? If it is more then 100% and I understand what you mean by digital noise you might be zoomed in too far. Or you may have the layer blend mode set to dissolve.
  7. I know there have been a lot of discussions on the forum about the export and downsizing quality differences between Affinity Photo and Photoshop. I also experienced this but I wasn't sure if it was related to Photo or just the result of poor choices on my part. I finally came across a direct comparison and would really appreciate some feedback/assistance/clarification on what I found/experienced. Photoshop Steps: I opened two illustrator files in Adobe Illustrator, got rid of any background layers present, showed the transparency layer, and then saved as an .eps file. I created a new photoshop file of 350 x 50 at 100ppi. I opened the two .eps files in photoshop, letting it pick its default dimensions it wanted to open as, and only forced 100ppi on the settings. I copied and pasted the files over 1 by 1 and resized them. I copied and pasted a large .png file as well and resized that. I exported the image as a png, leaving all the settings. The two .eps files on the exported png look clear but the resized png that was bigger looks like crap. Photo Mac Steps: I opened two illustrator files in Affinity Designer, got rid of any background layers present, turned on transparency, and then saved as .afdesign files. I created a new Photo file of 350 x 50 at 100dpi. I opened the two .afdesign files in Photo, which it just opened up. I had to rasterize the collection of layers before I could copy and paste them. I copied and pasted the files over 1 by 1 and resized them. I copied and pasted a large .png file as well and resized that. I exported the image as a png, leaving all the settings except I changed resample to Lanczos 3 (non-separable) as I read that provides the least about of loss to the quality. The two .afdesign files on the exported png are less clear then the one from photoshop and the downsized png file looks just as bad. Photo iPad Steps Basically the same steps as the Mac, however, I didn't have to open them in Designer first to turn off the backgrounds/turn on transparency. The png export was the same setup as the Photo Mac as well, however, that quality was even less than the Photo Mac Steps. Photoshop PNG Export: Photo Mac PNG Export: Photo iPad PNG Export: The difference in the wooden arrow sign isn't from the export, it was just the different sizes from when I downsized while making the different images. Can anyone please let me know if I did the steps wrong, if I'm missing a step, if I'm being silly, or if whatever? I really, really, really want to jump into the Affinity camp and have been researching the different steps needed to match what I usually do in Photoshop but basic image quality differences is a hard pill to swallow. Thank you very much in advance!
  8. You sir are a brushman among brushmen! Thank you very much for that, it worked beautifully!! I’m now almost completely moved over to Affinity Photo and on an unrelated noted even starting understanding the concepts behind Affinity Designer. Thank you again for your help!

    Brushes Studio Missing Brush Icon

    Hello and yes. I noticed the circle down at the bottom, and figured it had something to do with limited space. It would be nice to put as an option though, or perhaps a button that toggles the current brush view with a brush tip only view? Thank you!
  10. I'm using the latest release of Affinity Photo for iOS with the latest iOS software and just noticed that desktop version of Affinity includes an icon of the brush next to the line example, however, the same icon isn't included in the iOS version. Is this a bug? Is it by design? If by design can it be changed? I have a lot of stamp style brushes that I can't tell which one is which by looking at the line example. It really makes it hard for me to fully utilize Affinity Photo on the iPad. Thank you!
  11. Thank you for clarifying further on the type of brush pack. Besides the default brushes of various programs I've used, I've only really come across stamp brushes (I assume based on my search criteria). Are there basically two types of brushes? Stamp vs ? Thanks!
  12. Newb question here. I didn't see anything in particular in the search but I may have missed it given the amount of search results. If I did I apologize in advance! Is it common behavior for older photoshop brushes, that still can be imported into, and worked with, in the latest Photoshop installation, to throw an error when trying to import the same brushes into Affinity Photo? When I say older, I mean like 2003 or 2005. In the case of the brush pictured above, it is 2005. I'm also including the brush set on this post in case it is needed for troubleshooting if it isn't normal behavior. Both the Photoshop and Photo installations are on a Mac. Thank you! avh_winter_grace.abr
  13. Hello, So you keep at least one video tutorial up on YouTube with nearly 12,000 views that is focused on the brushes, use the works of art that utilize the brushes in keynotes, and in general showcased amazing brushes and we can’t even give you money for them? Am I missing something? Who is the artist that made them? Do they have a site we can purchase them from? I didn’t even know Affinity Photo existed until a couple of weeks ago or else I would have bought it when I could get the brushes. I get not giving them away for free, that’s cool, but not even letting artists buy them, or showing where they can buy them, is just bizarre. Thank you for your time and help.
