    Arc warp

    There's a window of opportunity here for Affinity .... Adobe customers are not happy .....

    Arc warp

    The thing is the warp tools in Photoshop are frequently used and something that is required in both Photo and Designer - its quite common to want to use warp > arc in Photoshop on bitmaps, for example for adding labels to jars, bottles, cans and so on ... often used when creating promotional graphics. I wonder if Affinity are spreading their resources a bit too thinly with the iPad versions, the new Publisher and the 'HOPEFULLY' seamless integration with Publisher, Designer & Photo when it arrives. Meaning some fundemntal features are too slow to arrive. If you leave-out fundemental tools that people are using already on a regular basis, then you cannot expect people to make the switch to Affinity on mass even with the fantastic pricing.... We'd pay a lot more and buy several licenses for an integrated all-in-one Photo and Designer with all vector and bitmaps in one and the addition of just a few more frequently used tools.

    Arc warp

    We purchased Photo and Designer to have a look at them ...... I'll come back in a year and see where Affinity are then.... in the meantime I'll continue using Adobe Fireworks & occassionally Photoshop ... Hopefully a few of the glaring ommissions in Photo and Designer will be there by then like presets for text ant-aliasing, mesh warp,, arc, arch, etc ... at the moment the tools & a bit frustrating to use with such omissions, it seems hard to get a definititve answer from Affinity too, I don't see any direct support.... only forums? You'll end up like Adobe with a total disconnect from your customers if you're ot careful.... I fully expect Adobe to lose a lot of customers inthe next few years
  5. I looked at it but I haven't got a clue what to do with it I'll be honest
  6. Yes I know its frustrating - hopefully the integration between Publisher, Photo and Designer will be seamless in the future - the Betas seem to suggest. I don't mind paying for all three at the affordable prices. The only trick I worked out in Designer was convert a square to curves select two diagonally oppossite points holding shift then you can do some simple perspective tricks .... buiy limited I know
  7. 1) I select an image 2) select the shear tool 3) hold down shift and pull down from thc centre It seems impossible to create a perfect arcl like you can in Photoshop with the warp > arch tool

    Shear Tool - Pefect Arch

    Thanks, but I honestly wouldn't have a clue what to do that with Equations filter

    Arc warp

    I'm looking for this too ... the 'shear' tool does some similiar effects but it is very dofficult to be precise with it as far as I can see to do a perfect arch effect
  11. How do you create a perfect arch vertically or horizontally with the shear tool, like the warp > arch tool in Photoshop ? Its very easy to go off centre and not get the perfect arch when using it and I couldn't find an option like holding shift key? Thanks
  12. thanks, really helpful ... Why did you bother?

    Just off track slightly, but on the subject of Phoptoshop Plugins - Jixipix plugins seems to work in Photo and Star Filter Pro which is a nice llittle plugin also works (tested on Windows 10) .... Might be useful to somebody ..... I hope the Affinity people get wider support for more plugins in the future
  14. Think an estinate is not a lot to ask for ... otherwise Affinity start sounding like Adobe
