    You need to copy/paste your selection to a new layer to select it with the move tool and add it to the Asset Studio, make sure the image your working on is a Pixel layer and not an image layer, you’ll need to rasterise it if it’s an image layer.

    I'm big fan of Affinity Designer. I use it daily, and not only for job, but for my personal joy.
     like it a lot. Hope this instagram stream will help me to get best of me and Designer. I hope you'll  like it.

    Well it's THAT time of year again, and there's no avoiding it...
    This month, create something related to the holiday season. This could be a photo of a Christmas Tree or a Christmas lights display, a wintry landscape, your dog in a Santa hat etc. If you're looking for an extra challenge, try to work in some unusual angles or experiment with depth of focus. When posting, if you can, please also write a sentence of two on the editing techniques you used or the filters you applied, so that we can learn from each other.
    Alternatively, create something in Designer or Publisher that expresses 'December'. This could be a holiday greeting card, a gift-wrapped box, Santa's reindeers crossing a starry sky, etc etc.
    If your style is more 'Christmas Grinch' than 'Santa's Little Helper' (no judgement here), create a photo or piece of art that channels 'Mid-winter', or 'the shortest day'. (Apologies to people in the Southern Hemisphere - maybe you could do the longest day and make us northies jealous of your fine weather!)
    We had some gorgeous pics last month, and I hope more of you can find the time to join in again.
    Let's see what you've got!

    Sara72 reacted to Ash Eldritch in My first illustration using Designer   
    Hi, I've been using the forum for a while now and recently have commented on a few peoples work so thought it only fair I should have something to show for myself. So this is my first attempt using Designer. It's very incomplete. There are more characters being worked on (I've switched their visibility off) and a lot of things haven't been finished like the house, tree, grass and the cloud splash where the rainbow fish is meant to be entering the cloud. Pretty much most things are unfinished  but it's taking time as my Mac is struggling to cope with the scale of the image now. It's for a children's book I'm working on. It's entirely done with vector, no brushes, no pixels. And also completely done using a mouse as trying to draw anything with my Wacom tablet results in the line taking about a minute to catch up with what I've drawn. Also It's only a portion of the image, the original extends both up and down. As it's so large I've added some sections of the image as well. Apologies for the essay.

    Here’s a silly throw-away experiment I put together while playing around.
    Everything except the background image was created using a mix of the three Affinity applications.

    Sara72 reacted to TookiTheGreat in I did a whole book in Affinity Publisher   
    I have just published my book "A String of Pearls" on Amazon. I had one issue with a recurring crash, caused by me mistakenly switching page Masters from left to right. Other than that, the power and ease of use of Publisher has enabled me to get this book look almost exactly as I had in mind when I started writing it.
    Once the iPad version of Publisher is out I don't even have to use my iMac anymore. I wrote the whole thing in Ulysses on my iPad Pro and would have loved to finish the layout on my iPad as well.
    Thanks, Affinity for making such awesome products at such a great price.

    Here's a recent fun personal iso piece done in Designer.
    Anyone who grew up in the 70's will be familiar with these 2 crime fighters. Steve McGarrett (Jack Lord) and Danny "Danno" Williams (James MacArthur) from the original Hawaii Five-0 TV series from 1968-1980. 
    "Book'em Danno" was McGarrett's signature catch phrase as well as his trademark hair wave. Shown here is the original 68 Mercury.

    you can create a New Textured Image Brush with grouped, Rectangle vector shapes, you’ll need to export the grouped shapes with a transparent background and save to the cloud so you can add the new brush. The brushes in Designer are pixel/bitmap images along a vector path.

    Add an outer shadow fx afterwards because it will be applied to the curves and should shade it as you would expect. but nice squiggly brain brush lol!
