  1. Here is a video showing what I'm not understanding. I've been watching all your tutorials but somehow I have missed these settings. https://share.getcloudapp.com/4gu7ljZG
  2. oh wow! This is Awesome! I will use it for Sure. Sure appreciate it melior64! This rocks
  3. Looking if anyone knows of any Free Money Back Guarantee or Satisfaction badges designed in Affinity Designer I can adapt to my need? Thanks
  4. I would love some tutorials on: How to spice up a simple screen shot or picture of my lead magnet. For example: skew it, add a shadow, maybe perspective reflection below it, angle it. Im constantly needing to do this for various Lead Magnets I use in my online marketing.
  5. I meant if it was at 0. That is what happened to me. I had no idea this had to be set.
  6. Maybe as a user like me drags the lever the Maximum Letter Spacing automatically moves if its not already set to a higher number.
  7. Its called Helvetica Neue. Its been on my machine for so long I don't remember where it came from. just tested it does the same thing with regular helvetica that come installed.
  8. Getting back to this. Yes I had the dimensions wrong. Its actually 400 x 100 or 200 as suggested. So what Im not understanding is the best way to set the original? Do I create a large file say 1200 x 400 place my images and text, then export as a png file then shrink in the app? I've always heard in wordpress it's best to import images at the size you want them so it doesn't slow down load times. Ive always had a hard time understanding how to get smaller images to look clear. Appreciate this discussion.
  9. Here is a video of what Im trying to do. I appreciate input as to what Im doing wrong. thank you Ed
  10. Thanks guys I will circle back to this in the next few days I hope. Under some pressure to get some client work done. Sure appreciate your assistance. Ed
  11. So is it best to create the overall image at hi res then in the application where I use it shrink it down? For example, in this case I want my final to be at 100 x 400. Do I create it much larger then scale on the webpage or am I thinking this wrong? My original headshot images are very large. What is the best way to shrink them then use in my signature goal?
  12. Need help understanding how to best proceed. Using Affinity Photo. Have an image that is 600 x 600 px at 72 dpi. What is the best way to shrink so it shows up clear to see when I place it on a web page? What I did was to write the signature with a font that looks like script then import the persons image (with a circular mask around it that I saved as a png file out of Affinity Photo) and place it below the signature. Problem is its really blurry when I try and use on a webpage. Can someone enlighten me as to what I am missing or best way to go about this? Thanks
  13. Sooner the better. Been using this a while and seems I need it a lot in the internet marketing world and in drawing diagrams for business curriculum.
  14. What is the best way to create an arc arrow in AD? I used the brush tool one of the forum participants posted but they take forever to make them smooth and perfectly rounded. They never look clean. Would love this option built in and easy...
  15. I don't have assets as an option.
  16. How did you start the Arrow? Im not understanding from the diagram. Looks great. Also, if Affinity Design is seeing this please build this in I need arrows all the time...Because its not clear how to build them I waste a ton of time each time I need them. Thanks
  17. Ash, when will it be available in the iBook store? I am trying to eliminate all books I have to carry around. Happy to pay, I appreciate the hard work and look forward to studying this guide. Thanks
  18. I have a regular need to create visual processes. Right now the one Im working on has topics around like an imaginary circle. I'd like to have wide arrows following the circle to show the flow of steps to follow. What is the best way to create these arrows? A tutorial would be ideal. Thanks Ed
  19. gdenby, thanks for taking the time. I got it working. Watched all the videos on Affinity Designer on Lynda.com and Im off to the races now. Thanks again for your time! :)
  20. I have a document I created. Right now it has a white background I want to make transparent. In Affinity Photo there is a checkbox I clicked to remove the background. I don't see that feature in AD. How do I export with a transparent background?
