  1. This is really great Lagarto, thanks for the help ! However I have this error message when I try to execute your utility: The application to execute does not exist: 'C:\Users\[...]\text2ase\text2ase.dll'. Did you forget to put the library file ? Also when I first attempt to use it, Windows Defender recommended me to analyse it - maybe it blocked it somehow.
  2. I tried it as well as it looks promising, however both Photoshop and Affinity say the file is invalid. How did you make it work ? In the script, function making the ASE content just returns it but doesn't output it to a file, so I've just added a echo before output it to a file : "php ase.php > test.ase".
  3. Hey there everyone, I'm generating color sets so I don't have to add colors in a new palette manually. However I just figured out that a Affinity color palette (.afpalette) is a binary file. Would there be a way to import/convert a palette from any kind of text file (xml, json, etc.) that can be generated ? In comparison Krita does save palette in a custom archive containing text files. Thanks in advance for your help.
  4. No this is not what I meant, and I'm using Windows. Well... no, attached to this message is a sample of what I mean and why your solution would not work : - In Krita, the blur brush somehow spread more and more and the blur intensity is relative to the brush size, thus you have a great blur transition. - I just realized that Photoshop is equal to Affinity in this situation : no matter how strong, how big and how often I use the brush, the blur intensity will remain the same. - Your gaussian blur trick with alpha transition results to a very amateurish blur transition... And no I won't make multiple layers with different gaussian blur sizes on each, it would be damn complicated for nothing - I'd rather open Krita just for that effect and copy-paste it back into Affinity. So it seems there isn't any solution to this ?
  5. No because it won't be a progressive blur, there'd be a "sharp" and "fixed blur" with alpha transition.
  6. Hello ! I'm using the blur brush tool but is there a way to increase/decrease it's strength (like increasing a gaussian blur size), because in 4K resolution it's too light. And of course I tried changing the brush size/flow/strength but even at 100% it's not enough. Thanks in advance for your help.
  7. Alright, great news ! I finally found a way to alter the screen colors without using any profile. On Surface Book devices, it's not the graphic card nVidia which handle the colors, it's the integrated graphics from Intel. Thus you just have to install the Intel Graphics app from the Windows store : https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9PLFNLNT3G5G Thanks again for the help !
  8. Hmm so this is an issue from the OS then. I do have the Surface Book 3, and it looks alike the link you've posted. Thanks for the share ! I should try to get back the color management from nVidia's control panel rather than using Windows color profiles.
  9. Hello ! I've bought a new laptop and created my own color profile so that screen looks more neutral than with the default sRGB profile. However I would like this profile to be applied only for the screen and not for any Affinity Photo documents. Unfortunately I tried all the options in the Colors preferences, I can't find a way for Affinity Photo to just ignore the screen profile and display the standard RVB colors. Attached to this post is a sample of the greyscale palette which doesn't look greyscale at all. If is set the color profile as "sRGB IEC61966-2.1" (relative render) I get this result. If I set the color profile matching Windows' color profile, it's even worse (as if the profile was applied twice). In order to get the correct colors back, I have to set both Windows and Photo as "sRGB IEC61966-2.1", but the screen looks blueish (as all other laptop screens). I general I don't use color profiles and change the color levels directly on the Graphic Card's configuration - but this time I can't and have to use a profile. I can eventually set Windows colors back to my custom profile while Affinity Photo is still opened - it does the trick but at any random time it switches to the wrong colors again. Would there be any way to prevent Affinity Photo from using any color space and just stick with the RVB defaults ? Thanks in advance for your help.
  10. Ohhh I see. I'll have to check that. Thank you very much for your help, and I'm glad I could help you in return.
  11. I am placing one by drag and drop from the explorer to Affinity Photo. And it's from a PNG file. On the sample given, the viewport is 400% zoomed. The left picture is aligned with the pixels (after dragging it with the selection tool to fix the issue), the right picture has just been dropped without dragging it again.
  12. I already have all those options activated. Though, deactivating "move by whole pixels" allows me to realign to the pixel grid once I drag it. But the issue still occurs while dropping a picture in the document.
  13. Oh okay, I didn't realize it was just the Wet Edges option that caused the issue. Thanks to @carl123 and @- S - to point those out. I've disabled the whole Assistant, and now it seems to be fixed ! Thank you very much !
