  1. Hi guys, I discovered an older topic about this, offering a solution by user @>|< , involving equations in Filters ➔ Apply Image, see this image: It'd be great if the Affinity developers could turn this procedure into a one-click solution, or even better: a non-destructive adjustment.

    Science-fiction novel cover design

    Hi @GarryP, You're absolutely right about the missing author. In this case it's just that it's more of an audiovisual project with three guys. So three names on the cover would be correct, but then again, there's only one writer. Confusing, haha. As a matter of fact, when I started this image, I had a music album cover in mind, with a square aspect, because there's also accompanying music, composed by one of us. But while the image progressed, a book cover aspect provided some more space. Have a nice evening, M7

    Science-fiction novel cover design

    Thanks @GarryP ! Good points. I've left out the author, because it's a joint project, but maybe it's better to share the cover without a title as well. The color scheme reflects a warm-cold contrast to emphasize the sunset. The spine, good question. To be honest I don't think this will ever actually be printed. It might become an e-book at most, or remain a personal exercise. Regards, Metin
  4. Book cover design for a utopian science-fiction novel set in a future Amsterdam. Hope you like it! Kind regards, Metin
  5. I've tried Erase White Paper on an image with a transparent background, but the filter also makes opaque parts semi-transparent. It's not the same as Photoshop's Remove White / Black Matte, which only removes the white or black residue in anti-aliased edges and the transparent part(s) of an image — such as semi-transparent shadows on a transparent background — effectively preparing it to be overlaid on any other color. That's what I really miss in Affinity Photo.

    Pasted PDF from clipboard becomes tilted layer

    Pasted PDF from clipboard becomes tilted layer

    Hi Sean, Thanks for your reply. I've attached the MoI 3DM file containing the custom rectangle. A standard Rectangle shape in MoI does import correctly into Affinity Designer, but this is a custom rectangle, built from joined straight lines in MoI. Select the rectangle from the file in MoI and use this command to copy it to the PDF clipboard (you can assign a MoI keyboard shortcut to it): script: /* Copy PDF format to clipboard */ moi.geometryDatabase.copyToClipboardPDF(); Then paste the clip into Affinity Designer. The rectangle should have the tilted bounding box. A parent layer is automatically created in Affinity Designer, but you'll have to select the child layer (the actual shape) to see the tilted rectangle bounding box. Here are a couple of posts about this issue at the MoI forum. MoI's developer Michael Gibson shares some of his thoughts about this there. Thanks! Metin Rectangle_PDF_clipboard.3dm
  12. Hi, I'm frequently importing curves from MoI 3D into Affinity Designer using the PDF clipboard, and since the latest Affinity Designer update(s) (at least a PDF pasted from the clipboard can turn out tilted in some cases. This behaviour didn't happen in Affinity Designer version and earlier. I've attached a screenshot to clarify what happens. The MoI rectangle consists of basic 2 point lines with corner vertices. A standard MoI rectangle shape does paste correctly. The tilted orientation becomes apparent when selecting the actual shape layer, not the automatically created parent group after a clipboard paste. It might be the result of a new feature in Affinity Designer, the start point of the rectangle is in the bottom right corner and maybe you are using a line between the object centroid and its starting point as the initial rotation. Thanks, Metin
  13. Hi @Christoph Daniel, Auto-cropping is already possible in AP using Document ➔ Clip Canvas. But I don't believe that works for multiple layers, like in GIMP.
  14. Hi, Photoshop offers a few functions to remove white or black outer edges of an image surrounded by transparency. It can be found in Layer ➔ Matting ➔ Remove Black Matte or Remove White Matte. The functions are also very useful to fix semi-transparent shadows that were rendered against a white or black background. It removes the white or black sheen from the semi-transparent shadows, making the shadows and rim pixels ready to be placed on any kind of background color or image. I really miss these options in Affinity Photo, and would be very happy to see them implemented. Many thanks in advance, Metin — EDIT: See this post for a solution.
