  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 !
  5. Hmm indeed, it does the trick ! Thanks for the advice. However, it'd still be better to have this option directly with the fill tool.
  6. Hello, I'd like to report a bug that occurs when importing a picture into Affinity Photo : the imported picture (creating a new layer) looks blurry. This happens because it surely is in subpixel coordinates. To fix this though, I have to align the layer to any horizontal and vertical sides, then I can finally move it freely - it'll remain aligned with the canvas pixels. However the best would be to avoid subpixel alignment, or to have an option for disabling it. Thank you in advance for your help !
  7. Hello ! I really appreciate using Affinity Photo for making illustrations, however there is something that ruins its potential when coloring a lineart. Every other pixel editing softwares I tried (Photoshop, Krita) allows the user to extend the fill selection in order to spill the color to the middle of the lineart pen strokes (for instance). I've attached a sample of the fill results made in Photo and in Krita, along with Krita's fill settings. The color is a different layer below the lineart layer. This pretty basic feature would increase a lot the speed of coloring simple flat drawings. Thank you in advance.
  8. Hello ! I'd like to report a bug that happens when switching tools between the paint brush and the eraser. After doing so, the brush doesn't look as previously selected - like... blurrish. I think it occurs because all the brush settings doesn't seem to be restored. I also mention that the brush isn't selected (blue highlight) anymore as well. To restore the correct brush settings, I have to select it again each time I switch tool - which is pretty annoying. I've attached to this message a sample of the brushes being different before using the eraser, and after. I should also precise that I didn't use any graphic tablet, I did it using the mouse. Thank you in advance for your help, I hope this bug will get fixed because I personally think it ruins the drawing experience.
  9. @GarryP Thanks ! Yes, and even if it is convenient, it can be a little too complicated compared to just apply a filter straightly (no additional filter layer, no additional actions to make that filter be applied only on the selected layer, and of course lighter for the program somehow). @smadell I've seen the merge button indeed, but this means you can't preview your settings only on the layer before you click on it - for the basic way of adding a filter. The sublayer filter is a much better option ! No need to create an extra group just for it. Thanks for the hint ! But in this case I can't merge it, but it's fine. Thank you for your answers !
  10. Hi everyone ! I'm testing Affinity Photo and I'm pretty satisfied with the whole. I had a little pain to understand how it works sometimes (because of my Photoshop habbits...) but I got to figure out how to use it. Until... now. There's something I want to do that is very, very simple as just changing the luminance or just colorizing a layer "quick and dirty", and it seems to be impossible... but I want to be sure. So concretely, I have one layer between many others which needs to be altered quickly. I supposed it was on the Filters menu, but I couldn't find any light/contrast, HSL, and those sort of basic filters there. Everytime I searched on Google and in the forum, it was always about a live filter. But... I don't want one - especially because by default it will be applied to all the sublayers and not only the one I've selected ! So yes, the solution is to create a group, put the layer inside then I can create a live filter on top, play with the parameters then merge it. But now I have a useless group layer which I'll have to remove. That is really complicated for nothing, in my opinion. I don't understand why can't we just apply some basic light/color filters in the Filters menu just like the other filters. Or... maybe I missed something, and that's why I'm here. Would anyone have a quicker way ? Thanks in advance for your reply. :)
