  1. Thanks, guys. I did notice that issue with going back one step in the history panel instead. I'll try the Fn+Delete keys to see if it works in my Mac. I was feeling frustrated seeing it works with other tools but not the freehand tool. It thought it was me doing something wrong.
  2. Why not do your edits directly on Affinity Photo? Is there an advantage of using Photoshop Express for your edits over Affinity Photo? Thanks
  3. Oh, sorry, I came to the forum to delete my question and totally forgot I should've posted the answer. Paul explained that the 'share' button will produce image sizes as defined in the export module. So if you choose say to save a jpeg with 2048px on the long side and high quality, that's what you get and that's what will be shared.
  4. I was wondering what is the quality of the photo produced by the Share button on the app export module, left bottom corner. Does it resize to 2048px on the long size? Does it do high quality jpeg? Progressive? Any ideas? Thanks
  5. Got my answer. Paul Mudditt was nice enough to reply on in a Facebook group for Affinity photo.

    Affinity Photo Workbook

    Any plans to release this workbook in digital form? Would love to get one but it's heavy and it'd be expensive to order and have it shipped overseas.
  7. <<I guess you mean the view of the brush-"presets"? You just want to show its small "symbol" not the line-preview for displaying more brushes in a role? >>. Exactly, I d9nt need to see all those brush strokes for most brushes. More display preferences just as with PS brushes. I too would like to see a better way of moving and organizing brushes. I’m going to create a favorites category for now.
  8. True yet photoshop offers the display I’m looking for and it’s super useful if you have lots of brushes, which I do, as I’m trying to more artistic looks and learn digital panting. It’s not one or the other, but the option to display the tools in a way that suits different users better. The way they are now, I can barely see 6-7 brushes in a category of brushes in my 13” laptop, unless I move the panel away, which then takes a lot of real estate in my workspace.
  9. Gee, I guess I need to get another cup of coffee !! Only after I read your post, I realized I've used it many times to modify brush properties Thanks, Callum Any ideas of how to display just the icon and not the brush stroke? Is this a feature that Serif is considering?
  10. No, I got what he’s looking for. Just saying that when I click on the Force 1 macros link in the welcome screen, I’m taking to download the latest uplift macro pack released with 1.6 (not sure why). Maybe he wants to try that. I clicked on on it because I’m actually looking for the Force 1 macros, when I lost, but instead the welcome Window link took me to the Uplift pack. Ended up on this forum post when searching for the Force 1 pack.
  11. When I open Affinity (in a Mac), if you click on the arrows of the photos on the Welcome Screen, there's an offer for Force 1 macros. ( I was looking for those, which I downloaded, but never installed and can't find the files.) On clicking on that Force 1 link to download those macros (from Affinity 1.5), I was taken to a page to download the macros that came with version 1.6, which is what you're looking for. It may work for you.
  12. Sorry if this was asked before, but I couldn't even a forum search option. (may need more coffee) The smudge brush does not have a blend mode option like the paint or other brushes have. How do you go about using the smudge brush if you'd like say, darker for blend mode, for animal fur contour? I also noticed that the mixer paint brush does not have an option for "wet". Does this mean that every time I load pain in my brush, I can only load the same amount? Any way around this? Thanks
  13. Thanks. The smudge and the color mixer brushes are brush ** tools ** (just like your paint brush or your pixel brush or the clone brush tools) not Brush types like you design yourself. I should have mentioned I’m using Photo not Designer
  14. Thanks !!! That worked wonders. Back to masking
  15. How do I restore all defaults in MacOS High Sierra? I'm having all sorts of trouble with Affinity Photo. I stopped using it for a while. Yesterday, I tried doing the very simple thing of inverting a mask from white to black, cmd+I wouldn't work. I also noticed issues with painting a mask so today I tried following a quick mask tutorial (just in case I was doing something wrong). Can't paint a mask with the brush on a duplicate pixel layer, created with cmd+J, or on the unlocked background layer. Anyway, I deleted the app and downloaded it again hoping it'd restore all defaults as in first installation. Nope, everything is still the same and stuck on the painting issue above (the invert mask was working again with cmd+i before the re-install). With Photoshop, opening while holding down Cmd+Option+Shift would restore all defaults. Tried this just in case, but doesn't work with Affinity Photo. How do I do this please? Thanks.

    Edit Mask: How?

    Is this still the case with the new version of Photo that came out in September ? Watching a video tutorial yesterday, the lady said she preferrred to use NEW layer with mask because it allowed her to go back to edit the mask but didn’t explain how. I tried but couldn’t, at least in the selection persona.
  17. Congratulations ! Well deserved indeed. Affinity for iPad is a very powerful application running in a very small device. Really outstanding app.
