  1. Thank you very much everyone. I think the brushes was the fastest route.
  2. Here is an image with a watercolor background. Does anyone know how to simulate something like this? My sister dabbles in watercolors and Ive asked her to recreate on a piece of paper then shoot a photo with her high res camera but I was also wondering if there is an easy way to simulate this through Affinity Photo? Thank you for your help.
  3. here you go https://share.getcloudapp.com/ApurgO1A
  4. Yes I want it like that but more realistic as it's only a few pages long. Can't seem to find a service that gives me the right representation. I once saw a plugin for Photoshop that had anything I could want but don't want to buy it if it wont work in AffinityPhoto.
  5. The image for the Ads Im running is what Im trying to make look more accentuated NOT the PDF itself. Sorry was not clear about that in my description.
  6. I create PDF'S as a FREE giveaway in exchange for their email. I've relied on a couple of tools or someone from Fiverr to give my PDF's more of a 3D angled view, often with a turned up page. Ive attached one to give you an idea. I looked through the training videos and didn't see anything that resembled what Im trying to do here. Does anyone know if Photoshop plugins that automatically do this will work in Affinity Photo? I also tried using the perspective tool and the Mesh warp tool but can't see how to create the look I'm after. Any directions on how to turn up the bottom r
  7. Yes I really like the drop shadows. The problem is I created this originally in Canva because its a derivative of a template they have already designed which save me a ton of time. Then I wanted to enhance it in Affinity Photo or Designer. I checked Canva and they don't have a feature to add a shadow to the icon. Thanks though. Mainly looking for ideas on how to make the image pop on a page.
  8. Im ok with the layout even though its not perfect. Im looking for ideas on how to present it on a page where someone is going to give me their name and email. Right now Im investigating how to do shearing and maybe do something to one of the edges. Would be nice if I could "curl" up and edge. Something to give it more of a 3 D look suspended in space.
  9. thanks for feedback. Any ideas on how to make it less "flat"?
  10. I have a png file of an image of tool I give away to prospective clients. I've attached it. Im looking for ideas to make it look more 3D on the page where I present it. I could probably do shearing and shadows but if you have any other ideas or picts of cool looking effects I'd love to see or hear about your technique. Thanks and Happy New Year.
  11. i think I got it. I found the text frame panel and I see now that I can convert a rectangle to a text frame panel. Thanks
  12. hmmm not seeing how to turn on the outer frame of a text box to make my box
  13. Het Walt, so are you saying make the box within the text frame? Let me go test that. Thanks sure appreciate it
  14. I have a PDF eBook I'm creating. I want some side boxes with text and maybe an image throughout the doc. What is the best way to produce this? Currently, I created an inline box and got the text over the top but I can't see how to connect them together so they stay together. When I select them both the "Group" feature doesn't activate. Is there a better way to accomplish this? Thanks
  15. Ans: Highlight area Select Frame Text Ruler Create tab stop in the direction of choice Control click over the tab stop Pick leader type
  16. I have imported some tabs from Apple Notes that were using the line feature. Basically it looks like lines people can write on. After import, the lines disappeared. What is the best way to achieve the same effect? I want to create a space people can write some notes in a guide Im creating. Thank you
  17. I have my text now on my page and I want to drag in some Picture Frames but they won't drag over. Im going back through the videos but if someone has a quick way to troubleshoot I'd appreciate it. Thanks
