  1. Wow, super! I had not realised there were alternative sites to be chosen directly from Affinity... You learn everyday new! Thanks for the quick replies carca
  2. OK, I have read it now and know.... Is there an alternative to Unsplash within Affinity? carca
  3. I am using Version and notice this "new" problem in comparison with my older versions: Whenever I want to use the stock panel (UnSplash) and place a chosen photo in my working space, Affinity Photo simply closes (shut down) and has to be re-opened. Is this normal? Is it by (only) by me or has anyone the same (new) issue?? carca
  4. Eeerr! thanks for your reply.... Actually, and after checking, the brush size is increasing/decreasing (while staying visible) allright when I am using the paint tool, but does not when using the clone tool (??). Unfortunately I have not been able to find both options under the short cut tab within the preferences to check the settings (too many options to look after!) The settings I use on my keyboard for increasing/decreasing the paint brush is Alt(on the right) + ( (this sign is situated above the 8 on my german keyboard) to decrease and Alt (on the right) + ) (this sign is situated above the 9 on my german keyboard) to increase the size. I dont have (or see, anyway) a possibility to increase/decrease the feather value at the same time as I see it possible in a number of videos... I work on windows10, 64bits, Home version 0919 I further must disapoint you: I dont know how to have the keybord apearing on my screen (!) I am using the 3 Affinity programs mainly for photos and have fun with them... Rgds Bernard
  5. Hello, Seems I have a "problem" with my paint brush: First, I am living in Germany and have a german keyboard, although I use Affinity in english. I therefore have (up to now) the keyboard shortcut : Alt (=Ctrl)-9 to increase the size of the brush and Alt (=Ctrl)-8 to decrease the size ot the same brush. fine! Newly (is it after a new version was installed(?), or is it because I recently changed the mouse (?) the cat had swallowed the old one!) I dont know), although the feature is working ok, (the size of the brush changes up and down) , the result of the change becomes only visible when I release the maus. This means I cannot see the size of the brush growing or shrinking while hitting the 8 or the 9 as it worked before... I am not amused! Has anybody out-there an idea of what I am missing or should do? Bernard
  6. OK understood, I docked them (panels) now and everything is fine... Thanks for your super quick reply and help
  7. Eeerrr... I dont know! Moving these panels around, I dont see/feel they dock... carca
  8. I have the follow. "problem": When opening a new image, the upper corner is obviously set at the intersection of the two (x, y) 0 values. Unfortunately, the grid on my AF Photo does not start at both 0, but at -200 on one side and -50 on the other side resulting in an image set on the right of the screen, partly covered by the different panels I use. Of course, it is easy to "push" the image to the far left, but I cannot find a way to have this done automatically on opening a new image. Supressing the grid does not change the problem... Any suggestion? I could not find a solution on the net, meaning that the solution is sooo easy, or that nobody experiences this problem! Help, I am going crazy!! carca
  9. OK, works fine... Thanks a lot for the quick help, I am testing the whole bunch! carca
  10. Is there a possibility to download makros for Affinity photo somewhere? I am specially interested into all photographic matters... carca
  11. Hello, I have been with the Affinity adventure from begin on and am mainly interested in Affinity Photo as a hobby photograph. Nevertheless, I have bought Designer and Publisher as soon as they were available because I liked the "systematic" of the concept. To be honest, I dont use much these 2 other programs because I have not take the time to study them in detail so far.. Now, one of the (very) good side of all these programs are the official videos, specially in the case of Affinity Photo... Would it be a good idea to start a video range about using all 3 programs together (or rather one after the other) to realise a specific projet. This would make the concept still more concrete. If these exist already, I would be eager to see the videos. If not, time to try and realise some!!! carca
  12. OK, now I have "made it"!! (See enclosed photo). Sure it looks more a glued label on the plane rather than the original logo they are so proud of but the initial question was on the princip and I have got it and I am going to do it better. Thanks so much for the help. carca
  13. Ok, I have now seen your video and understand roughly what you suggest... I am just stuck after the first manouver! I frame the text ok, and I suppose (I could not see it because you zoomed my small image) that I have to cut the selected text area. When I do this (with command cut), the selected area disapears, but I do not get the corresponding icon that apears in your video on the right, above the icon of the plane. Certainly because I used the "wrong" command. Can you further explain? Thanks in advance Carca
  14. Thanks for thre super quick reply and the instructions... I check it this evening and report if successfull... Carca
  15. When I horizontally mirror a a photo (a Quantas plane) with Geometrie/hor mirror) I get a perfectly mirrored image... Unfortunately the text (the Quantas logo in this case) is equally "mirrored" and not to be read... How can I settle this? Carca
