  1. Thanks
    ProducerBoy reacted to MEB in Availability of Old-Style figures not reflected in Typography pane   
    Hi ProducerBoy,
    You have the language of the text int the Character panel set to None. This is the reason why those features are not appearing in the Typography panel. Set it to English (or the appropriate language for the text in question) and they should become available in the Typography panel.

    I haven't thought to remove all styles before, thanks for that tip.
    Regarding the enormous file size try Save As... I get more realistic results with many different software packages doing that.

    Hi ProducerBoy,
    Go to menu Text ▸ Show Typography, select the numbers in the text object then look at the options in the Typography panel. You should see the Figure Style options there.

    ProducerBoy got a reaction from IndigoMoon in Select color range   
    I second this request. Select Sampled Color just isn't good enough. I need to be able to select a band of colors on the hue spectrum, not just a single color. Photoshop has this capability, and the HSL slider in Photoshop even allows the HSL shift to be applied to just a subset of the hue spectrum. It's a huge time saver!

    ProducerBoy reacted to lexislav in Why is the Clip Canvas and Unclip Canvas tools so useless?   
    And that is realy something Rasterize should not do.
     
     
    Exactly. We need whole layer be kept when rasterized (including areas out of canvas).
    This should be definitely renamed to rasterize & Trim to canvas or something.

    I am not really sure what you mean. Could you post an approximate example of what you want to achieve ? or do you mean something like this ?

    ProducerBoy reacted to kaffeeundsalz in Reflect Blend Mode   
    I would generally appreciate if the Affinity Help system could be a little more specific about what the individual blend modes do, both mathematically and what this means for the appearance of the layers. Right now, the "Layer blending" section only has a short description of the most commonly used blend modes, the other ones being just listed without further explanation.

    ProducerBoy reacted to verysame in Request: Matching Colour   
    I personally never found the match color in PS very good, in fact, I rarely use it.
    Now, what I'm posting might not look as the right answer as the final result if far from looking right, but I hope at least this will give you some hints on how to work around the problem and find other solutions.
    I didn't pay much attention to the colors as I should have, I get a little nervous when I screen record  Hope I'll get better at this.
     
    For what concerns the techniques in the breakdown video attached, I don't take any credit for them. I'm just adapting methods I have learned over the time and I have been using in PS.
    There are other techniques, for instance, one called Saturation maps (if you google it you'll see what I mean). At the moment is not usable in Affinity Photo as it seems the relative option in the selective color is not working (at least here on my box). If it's a bug, I hope it'll get fixed soon.
     
    The point is, there are different way to match the color and, despite my attempt below is not 100% prooving it (user's fault), I really encourage you to investigate more. They are more accurate, and they'll give you more tools to use (and not only to match colors). This is definitely one of those things I don't miss from PS

    ProducerBoy got a reaction from howdytom in Affinity Photo: Trim to transparent or to a specific colour function in Photo.   
    YES YES YES YES YES YES!!! This functionality is super-important to my workflow. I often have images from which I need to extract a sub-object and give it a transparent background. My ideal workflow: roughly select that object. Magic-wand select the background around it and hit DELETE to make transparent. And then ... the piece that can't currently be done ... "trim to transparent" (or trim all of one color if it was on a solid color) and -> BOOM, a nice image of just that object on a minimal transparent or colored background.
