  1. Thank you for sharing! My focus right now is more on creating lineart borders, but I like the techniques shown in this video. I will try them out when creating frames for photos
  2. Thank you! I will take a look at these settings and see how I can modify them to create a closed shape for the decorative border. Also, the texture brush pack that you shared looks like a really great one. I will check it out.
  3. I haven't downloaded any other brushes, outside of the default brushes in Affinity Designer. I will see if I can find some decorative brushes that can create a closed shape.
  4. That's interesting. I've never used macros. It would definitely be helpful if I can turn this into a batch job. Thank you
  5. I will resize them to 300 DPI to be on the safe side because I want to avoid problems with printing.
  6. I would also really like to maintain the DPI of the original document in the new document when I'm using the "New From Clipboard" option.
  7. Options are a good thing. Personally, I don't want the default to be less than 300 DPI, because it makes the document no longer suitable for printing.
  8. Thank you! I will adjust the DPI to 300, while having Resample unchecked. Hopefully, this won't cause any issues with printing. I could create a new document but "New from Clipboard" works much faster. It's not as efficient to create a new document each time. But then again, I'm already going to have to spend a lot of time finding the files whose DPI was lowered to 96 and try to convert them to 300 DPI one by one. So, I guess I'd rather avoid this problem in the first place, and maybe I'll have no choice but to paste these images in a new document to avoid the DPI being automatically lowered.
  9. Thank you. It seems a bit tricky because my border needs to have a fixed width and height, so there's nothing I can do to adjust the border itself. I'm just going to try to get the semicircles to be the right size in order to fit within the length and width of the border.
  10. Thank you for reminding me about the Transform panel. It's been a few months since I've gone over the basics in Affinity. I remember now that the Transform panel shows the length and width of a selected graphic. I used this panel mostly for moving graphics a specific distance, so I forgot that it also shows the length and width of graphics. I will keep this in mind to help me get more accurate measurements. Also, yes, my snapping is already activated. I appreciate your help :)
  11. Here are some SVGs from Pixabay that I tested this with. On this one, the fill colors the lineart, but it doesn't fill the shape. https://pixabay.com/vectors/flower-lily-flora-bloom-blossom-32737/ Here it tries to fill in the shape but it does it unevenly. https://pixabay.com/vectors/encouraging-floral-flower-flowers-2023283/
  12. I'm experiencing a very frustrating problem with Affinity Photo. I've been working with PNG graphics, which are high in DPI (300 DPI or more). Since each PNG has multiple graphics in it, I've been using the lasso tool to separate each one by copying it and then selecting the "New From Clipboard" option to create a new file from it. It's the fastest way to do it and I didn't think there would be any issue with it. I've been doing this for a while, but I only noticed this problem with it recently. My image was 800 DPI, but the graphic that I copied from it and opened in a new canvas by using the "New From Clipboard" option turned out to be only 96 DPI, which is below print quality. I'm frustrated by this because I've been doing this for a while. I put a lot of work into it by selecting each graphic individually with the lasso tool, and I've been doing this with many images already. Now it doesn't seem like I can use them for printing purposes anymore. I didn't think something like this was possible because my images had a really high DPI, and I couldn't have expected that the DPI would be changed into something much lower without me knowing about it. Is there a way I can correct this problem, so that I can still use these images for print? Or is it too late now and these images can never be print quality? I need to work with 300 DPI. Is there a way I can prevent this problem from happening in the future? I want to make sure that the images I extract from large documents and save as a new document using the "New From Clipboard" option will be at least 300 DPI. (I'm using the Mac OS version btw.) Thank you!
  13. Thank you! I'm getting mixed results when it comes to this. I tried it on several SVG graphics that I downloaded. It doesn't let me apply a fill, but it does change the color of the lineart. The only time I was able to apply a fill is when I would draw something in Affinity Designer on my own.
  14. Thank you for giving me the formula to calculate this. I not very good at math so I couldn't have figured this out easily lol. The only thing that might be a little time-consuming for me to figure out in this case is the exact measurements of the border and the circles. I know I can use guides and the rulers to see where each shape begins and ends on the ruler. But it's a little tedious and prone to error to find this manually. Is there a more precise way to measure the border and the circles in Affinity Designer?
