    Some of my work with Affinity Designer

    Terrific work, Leo! I learned to draw with a pencil, but I had to learn to draw with a mouse years ago when I started using computers. When I got a laptop I had to learn to draw with the trackpad -- and it's not that difficult to be delicate, once you get used to it. I've got a Wacom tablet, but I don;t bother with it very often.

    Photo 1.7 crashes

    If I can work out what specifically is causing it I'll get back to everyone.

    Photo 1.7 crashes

    They were quite small ones, as I was trying out some of the new features -- 800 x 500 px, in the last three or four.
  4. I'm trying out the AP beta on a Windows 7 laptop. I've been attempting to use a perspective projection, but it keeps shutting down with no error message. It's also crashed on other occasions; there doesn't seem to be any common factor here, and I haven't been able to report the problem in the usual way. I have nothing else running apart from Windows Explorer to keep track of files.

    A Newbie at Affinity - Paint Splatter Effect

    Nice work, Melissa! As a long-time computer user (I go back to punched cards and paper tape!) I've always found the best way to get the hang of new software is simply to play with it and see what happens. It looks as if you're already getting to grips with AP looking forward to seeing what you do next!

    New Year's greetings!

    I'm a day early, but you might be busy tomorrow! My New Year video, made in the usual way ...

    Symmetry Numbers/Values

    I think they are powers of two: 2^1 = 2, 2^2 = 4, 2^3 = 8, 2^4 = 16, 2^5 = 32. Obviously designed by programmers, not graphic designers!

    Focus stacking with 95 images

    I was impressed by your using the milling machine table! As you say, the proper kit is expensive. I wonder who might have a lathe or something among my acquaintances?
  9. I said in an earlier post (https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/75089-vintage-cigarette-packets/) I'd started a little project to reproduce some old cigarette packets (or packs, if you're on that side of the Pond). Here's another: Park Drive. Once again, I've used vectors to make the letter shapes, with a bitmap fill for the gold shadows, made by sampling the original image, and I've finished off in Photo with Merge visible and a couple of pixel textures to make it look a bit 'lived-in'. This time I thought I'd be a bit more ambitious... and try a twenty instead of a ten! And the original looked like this:

    That's good news -- thanks!

    Christmas video for 2018

    Thank you Alfred. If only there were a way to make money from these things!

    Christmas video for 2018

    Yes, it's that time of year again. My Christmas video is made with a 'borrowed' image, chopped up and manipulated with Affinity Photo, animated with Anime Studio (a third-party package marketed by Serif a few years back) and brought together in Serif MoviePlus X6. Merry Christmas!

    Vintage cigarette packets

    Capstan, LG! As for the original images, I borrow them with help from Mr Google.
