  1. Is there a simple way to fit a canvas (not an art board) to the size of a cropped image? :)

    I did as you said, and did not achieve the result. The Gaussian Blur didn't work. BUT I got it another way. I went to lighter color blend mode after inverting, and achieved a nice pencil drawing -- with shading -- actually nicer than expected.

    I followed these steps: make extra bg layer. On 1st layer, b&w adj. Then, Blend Mode Color Dodge. Then invert. On the second bg layer, b&w adj. What I got was all white. I tried to follow from there with the video but the menu item was not present. What I need, if you don't mind, is a list of steps for Affinity Designer. I'm just not getting it from the picture.

    Please forgive me for being a novice, but I tried the settings in the thumbnail and had the wrong result. Can you spell out the steps for me?

    Is there a way to do it in Affinity Designer?

    Um... I don't see the tutorial.
  7. I'm embarrassed to admit this, but as you can see in my profile pic I once figured out the steps it takes to create a sketch from a photo. But now, when I go to View>Outline with the same photo, I get a blank canvas. Can someone help me out? (I'm in pixel mode, but I tried it in regular mode, too.) :)

    thanks. I'll try another object. The one I used was an old one not made on Affinity Design.
  9. I tried both a photo and a vector graphic and when I go to outline, all I get is a transparent canvas. How do I make outline work? I tried the split view and it still just showed the canvas. :)
  10. Thank you both, I found the brushes in pixel mode.
  11. Are there any archives of extra image brushes and smoke brushes I can import into Affinity Designer? Free or priced.
  12. How do I turn the marquee tools back on? I'm looking for the smart selection brush and have deduced it has something to do with the marquee tools, but now I don't see them on the toolbar.

    Naming swatches

    Twice. It's a bit inconvenient but it works. Thanks for the help.
