  1. Sorry, I am actually using Designer, and 'reduced the workspace' is just the wrong choice of words, or not using better software words - primarily because I am still very new to using Affinity and just used the words that came to me naturally. I did go through Document settings and configured it that way, but also since found that I was likely working off of the *absolute minimum* pixel requirements too
  2. I did think that 98px was insane, but was going off of what was in front of me on their site, since going back after sleeping and working I've now found the sizing you've got
  3. Hi all, Just trying to work out a couple of things. Firstly, why has the quality of my image once exported and then uploaded to Youtube as a display picture loses all quality? Youtube guides say to make it 98x98, I reduced the workspace to 98x98px, resized my object with 'scale to object' enabled and exported it as a png at the same pixel size, but when I hit upload on Youtube, it comes out as screenshotted below. Any suggestions? TIA - Aussie
  4. Is it as deep of a rabbit hole as Youtube is at 2am when you just click "one more compilation video" for the 74th time? To be honest, creating a colour conversion spreadsheet would be for the fun of it, because I'm a nutter who loves creating spreadsheets, so I'm down to grab onto Alice's hand and jump down the rabbit hole
  5. Damn, I was looking forward to doing a complicated spreadsheet. What would the buzz words be to look into proper conversions with ICC profiles? Or would it just be that "rgb to cmyk conversion with icc profiles" And his picture is definitely blurred to me too
  6. I definitely knew there was a major difference between the two, and knew that CMYK is typically used for print work, I use to work with an older gentleman who worked in lithography, and was very verse in CMYK colour spectrum. I have too noticed that using the green of the attached image colour code, it is far duller when using the CMYK code, which while at the moment while I am just fiddling around to work out how things work isn't a big deal, but as per my other post where I was trying to change the colour of a lightning PNG (as a part of a brush set purchased on the Affinity store) the
  7. Hi there, I realise this question isn't specific to Affinity's products, but it is related to my usage of Affinity, so I hope it's still reasonable to post here as I think the Affinity community may have someone who knows the answer/s These questions come in relation to a previous topic I have posted here I have a 2 part question (with images attached) for someone who may know colour theory, are these formulae something that can be put into an Excel spreadsheet so that I can create a spreadsheet that will convert colours from RGB -> CMYK, and other colour conversions
  8. Thanks, I have gotten it to mostly work, just need to work on CMYK vs RGB colouring.
  9. Hey there, I have tried using adjustment layers and directly changing the layers, but can't seem to change the lightning brushes (imported png files). The closest I have gotten, is creating a shape, rastersing it to a mask and making it a child layer of the lightning - which while it doesn't change the colour does fade the lightning. Any suggestions?
  10. Hi there, Just wanting to know if this is intended or not, but when you lock layers within a group, but not the group itself, the entire group can still be moved as one object, not just the unlocked layers within it when the group is selected. Attached is something I'm working on, and as the screenshot shows, the dirt mounts around the tombstone are locked but the tombstone itself is not, but if I select the group in the layers menu, and move the selection it moves everything in the group, not just the tombstone, which I thought it'd only move the unlocked layers in the group.
  11. Hi there, I have looked at other posts, but none seem to be able this kind of effect, although one was close, linked below. I am wanting to create the impression type effect, like shown by the key impressioning below, with the blackened shape of a controller in the second image. I have tried using emboss and 3D fx's but didn't achieve the effect. I have tried to look up on Youtube for how to create an impression, but as expected the results show reviews and first impressions of the Designer software. Edit: I am currently looking through blend modes as well
  12. Thanks for your suggestion, in the process of trying to follow it, and having received the Designer workbook today as well, I ended up finding that making it the child layer and then setting the blend mode of the child layer to "erase" achieved the result I was looking for. Thanks for your suggestion though!
  13. Hi there, Just wondering if there is a better way to have this texture layer onto the text AND the effects as well, currently I only know how to do child layers, if there is a better option I'd definitely love to hear it or if I am asking something that isn't doable... As you can see below, when the effects are removed, it's very easy to see the texture, but when the effects are applied it is very much so lost under the effects. Cheers, Aussie
  14. Been watching a few Youtube videos while I wait for my Affinity Designer book to come, and in the process have made a few lil graphics, playing around with child objects, gradients, the add/subtract/divide functions and transparency.
  15. Thanks for your quick reply, apparently I am wrong, it's not the diamond style I am keen for, it's the 'dissolve blend' mode. Which I have found how to do at the attached link, which I have done and achieved the effect I was after, albeit a lighter version of it.
  16. Hi there, I have searched high and low for this option in Designer (or even Photo for that matter). Attached is a screenshot of something I was playing around with in Photoshop before moving to Designer and Photo, but I cannot seem to find the 'style' of "diamond" under any setting I look, can someone please tell me what the best way to go about this is? TIA. Kieren
  17. Thanks Carl, I was looking at those details when first opening it, so must of accidentally changed it to RGB/32, as the colour now looks correct.
  18. Hi there, I hope this is the right forum for this, I have just gotten Affinity Photo and Designer, in an effort to move away from Adobe products... But I have found Designer to be showing a colour incorrectly, despite Photo working seemingly fine - I am green coloured blind, but this difference is too great to not notice. The RGB for the colour is 0 132 61. I have attached three images to demonstrate this point, firstly is the actual colour coding from Wikipedia (these colours are the Australian National colours Green and Gold). Secondly is Photo which shows it to be close enough (my
