  1. That's great, thank you very much. Any ideas how to remove the background reflections on the wine bottles?
  2. Hi Affinity community, I'm trying to work out how to remove glare created by light reflecting off wine labels onto the table. Ideally, I would like the colour of the wooden bench to come through in it's replacement. The idea is to try and reduce the distraction/noise and have the entire focus be on the bottles of wine on the table. I'm not too bothered by the background reflection that's on the glass of the wine bottles but if there's an easy solution to this, then I'm all ears too! Thank you Wine along table (homepage photo) .afphoto Wine along table (homepage photo) .afphoto
  3. Hi @Old Bruce, thanks for the words of advice. This sounds particularly tricky and onerous to do... would i have to do text on a path for every single text entry?
  4. Thanks for all the insights guys, very much appreciate it. @walt.farrell I made segments firstly by creating a donut shape. I need 14 segments, so found the outside angle for that (roughly 25.71), reduced the outside angle as such, duplicated it 13 times, converted all to curves, and used 'Smooth' with the node tool - essentially what @Dan C does in his first message in this thread Thank you @GarryP for that approach, nice to know an alternative route. That's almost what I'm after - if the text could be perpendicular to the way it is in your demonstration then we have a winner. Ideally, i'm trying to replicate what is done in the attached photo from Wine Folly. Thank you for the support tho people, appreciate it a lot
  5. Hi Affinity Community, This question has probably been asked before but is it possible to align text in a shape once it's been converted to text frame? I have segmented a donut and would like the text to align as if there were invisible lines pointing away from the centre of the doughnut - essentially a fan of words going around the wheel. The arrow in the attached photo is an attempt to try an illustrate the direction of said invisible lines. Thank you!
  6. Many thanks for the help and interesting suggestions @h_d, much appreciated. Didn't think of making an HSL adjustment so will have to give that a go using a white background to make adjustments a little easier and see if I can make it more of a cream colour from there. Cheers man If you would like to see the original RAW image and build it up from there, I have attached it below. IMG_4543.dng
  7. Hi Affinity Forum! I'm fairly new to Affinity and having been learning as I go since buying it over the summer, but I have come across a hurdle that I need some help with. I'm in the early stages of founding a new online wine startup (caminodelvino.co.uk) and I have been practising and playing around with my photo and editing skills in the run up to launch. Using a mini home studio as my setup, I've managed to edit a photo (see wine photo attached) to an acceptable level so far and recently, used the healing brush tool to edit out the crease line on my backdrop so that it looks more 'professional'. I have three questions: 1) is there a better alternative to using the healing brush for the removing background creases or folds? 2) if not, is there anyway I can make it non-destructive to the photo at all, or is this likely to be a last decision editing job in any circumstances? 3) As much as blue is a nice colour, it isn't the backdrop I'd like to use for my wine on my website. I have alternative backdrop colours, but I was wondering if there is anyway I can lay over a full background colour (RGB Hex #FEF0E2) to be more inline with my companies colour palette, whilst retaining that 'professional' photo look about it (i.e slight shadow effect etc. - see shoe photo for example). Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you!
  8. Thank you for the warm welcome @GarryP and that's an incredibly super easy solution to the problem - much appreciated! Hopefully more time spent using Affinity will help me understand its ways better. Many thanks
  9. Hi all, I have a new problem to this deleting line segment question and I was wondering whether anyone could help me: I'm trying to use affinity designer for a floor plan of a building and I've created a rectangular box. To represent the thickness of the outside walls, I have implemented a solid line style around the outside of the box and pushed line alignment to the outside. I want to cut a line segment out of the side of the box so I can make room for the doors, however, when I convert to curves and then try and break the curves with the node tool, the line alignment jumps back to the centre (see before and after pictures) - any help solving this problem? It's important for the line to be aligned to the outside as measurements and dimension were taken from the inside. Many thanks
