  1. I just gave that a shot and it's still very blurry at 150 x 150. I'm attaching an affinity photo file of what I want it to look like, but at 1,000 pixels wide, as well as the original full-size image. The wordpress theme says that the ideal size of this logo is 120 x 60 pixels so that it can scale down to phones. EWLogoUpload.afphoto
  2. I have an image which goes with a logo that's saved as 2400 x 2400 px. My wordpess theme demands my logo be 180 px wide. When I shrink my image small enough to fit within the logo required dimensions, it's very blurry. Is there a way I can shrink it down while keeping its clarity?
  3. Totally missed that distinction! The rectangle tool did work. Thanks so much for your help~
  4. If I've tried to do as you suggest.This seems to blocked the image entirely, like the first screenshot below. If I place the rectangle layer directly below the image's layer, it blocks the part of the image that I want to preserve, but shows the rest. As in the second screenshot below. What am I missing?
  5. I've got an image in Affinity photo that has to be 1280 x 720. There's a background layer that's black, a text layer, and an image/foreground layer. I need to crop the image/foreground layer to eliminate about a third of the image. When I use the crop tool with the correct layer highlighted and the other layers turned off (unchecked) to do this, it cuts out the desired part of the image, but in doing so it reduces the dimensions as a whole, thus making it unusable. How can I just crop one layer without affecting the image as a whole?
  6. I've got an image that looks great at 1381 x 1963. But I need to shrink it to apox 60 pixels x 85 pixels. I hold shift to maintain the aspect ratio and drag to resize it downward, but the image becomes blurry. Is there anything I can do the prevent this?
  7. I'm looking for a single font I can use for text against a variety of backgrounds to maximize readability. Am I right to think that white text with a black outline is probably best? I saw the example below recently and thought it might fit the bill. Looks like they're using white font face, black outline, and a drop shadow. Are there any other elements that make text like this stand out? What font do you think might be displayed below, or something roughly similar in readability?
  8. Thanks for this. Following your suggestion did get that weird back cover color to go away. The print edition is still looking a lot more washed out than the ebook, though, and I don't know why it has a random black border around it.
  9. I'm working on a video that has a lot of narration about a topic that would be hard to get footage for. I'm not good enough to draw or animate the subject, so I'm looking for other options. I came across this video, which had narration over well-done static backgrounds zooming in, out, and panning. It uses historical photos, etc, which I think I could adapt to my topic. There also seem to be some other effects going on as well. Are these just static images being panned over, or is something else going on? They seem to be really bright and pop out. Any suggestions for achieving the effect? Thanks!
  10. The book has not been printed since it appeared to be discolored during the set up process. But maybe I'll just try printing it.
  11. The book cover I'm trying to use for a print on demand book thorough Amazon KDP looks great in Publisher and when I view the exported PDF on my computer, but when I upload it to Amazon it appears discolored. Check out the back cover portion of "AmazonScreenshot.png" — it looks grey. But I made it black in Publisher, and it's still black when I view it as a PDF after export. This is shown in "PublisherScreenshot.png and PDFscreenshot.png". Should I assume this is an amazon bug rather than an issue with Publisher?
  12. I've got a book laid out in AP with two pages on each "page," which I think is called a spread. I need it to export it as a pdf with single pages to upload it to a Print on demand service. What's the best way to do this?
  13. Publisher won't let me move the two parts of the text at the end of page 30 in the attached .afpub together. When I try to place my cursor at the end "verage" and backspace it up to the a on the previous line, I can't get the cursor into the right spot. Any suggestions? Weird_Text_Jump.afpub
  14. I'm laying out a book, and I'd like the Forward and Preface to use Roman Numerals, but have the Introduction start over — at page one — with Arabic numerals. How do I pull this off? Currently, I have page numbers embedded in my headers, which are set up with masters. I can't figure out how to restart the count with a different kind of numerals. Thanks!
