  1. I used to use Adobe software for over 20 years but had enough. I am looking into monitors mostly for illustration and fine art. Have any of you experience using Benq 2720? or similar Benq monitor. I do print work on a wide inkjet printer up to A2. The colour management is not bad with Affinity Designer and Photo. All feedback is welcome.

    Hello, It is possible to Add Title, ALT and captions to files for workpress please? My aim is to add them before I upload it.

    Hi, Ok, I have been told you can only do it in Wordpress. Thanks anyway.
  4. As far I can see half of the videos do not have subtitles, as I am deaf. Please include them. I am having to go through some of the videos over ten times without subtitles and still cannot figure it out how it had been done.

    Not sure if it safe to order it, I am bit concern that I could be conned. How safe it is to order online.
  7. I have some colour profiles but it is not showing up. Where should they be kept so that I can use them for screen and output to inkjet printer.

    Can you please kindly include subtitles into the video? I cannot hear as I am deaf, I have equal right right as much as anyone else since I have brought both apps.
  9. I am wonder if I can use my Phantasm plugin from Illustrator that will work with AD?

    iMac or iMac 5K

    Yes, I have seen the video. I have contacted a few colour consultants it had been recommended to use a second monitor for press and print work.

    This is my impression in flat colours of people of all kinds of culture walking down Brick Lane, London.

    Colourful singing lady

    I love to keep my drawing very simple but use colours as a way to communicate. Firstly I always used coloured pencils to start of with.

    Flat colour

    I personally like to use flat colour as a language in their own right.

    The Runner experiment

    Try out. I have lots of scanned images that are created with real acrylic and watercolour paints. This a first for mixture of vector and bitmap. I am not a great fan of bitmap, as someone suggested auto tracing similar to Illustrator would be handy.

    Strictly Come Dancing

    Some of us like to watch.....Strictly Come Dancing. I love to break down images and keep it simple. I tried out masking and the gradient tool with straight lines only.

    All that Jazz

    As I am deaf but I can hear some jazz music... whilst listening I got out my coloured pencils and finished it off in Affinity.

    All that Jazz

    I always find it very hard to create anything on a computer, that why I always do a rough idea and research on paper or even improve upon it. If I am happy with it I will create it whatever media I think will give the greatest impact. In this case I scan the image. Thanks for your nice comments
