  1. 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

    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
  4. Hello, Any timeframe on when the integration between Publisher, Photo & Desinger will be available, so we can see how it works? I see the buttons in Publisher, but will they just launch each program individually or will the integration be more seamlesss?
  5. thanks, really helpful ... Why did you bother?

    Lens Flare

    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
  7. Think an estinate is not a lot to ask for ... otherwise Affinity start sounding like Adobe

    Lens Flare

    When I tested the 64 bit version of Knoll Light Factory 3.2 in Affinity it actually worked on one occassion! Mostly though the plugin is launched and when you try to apply/save the effect Affinity Photo then crashes. As I understand it Red Giant are no longer developing the Light Factory plugin for Photoshop, their concentration is on video. So, in a weird way it would could make sense for Affinity to get Knoll Light Factory working inside Photo, because (a) Photo doesn't have a native lens flare effect and (b) At least they won't have to worry about updates to Knoll Light Factory breaking the integration
  9. Not even even terms of months? Are we looking at 3 months or more like a year ?

    Lens Flare

    Interesting because I've had the opposite experience with the MediaChance Bridge ... May I ask which 32 bit PS Plugins you tried to use with it?

    Lens Flare

    That would take it to the next level i.e. being able to apply third party PS Plugins in a non destructive way

    Lens Flare

    .... anyway while playing around with Photo BETA i tried a plugin I have by MediaChance Plugin Bridge - a wrapper so you can run 32bit plugins inside 64 bit version of Photoshop.... It seems to work well & I was able to use a 32bit version of Knoll Light Factory with it inside Affinity Photo. Question????? ...... Can third party plugin effects be non destructive? I know Photo has the live/non destructuive built-in effects but any way to make 3rd party plugins non destructive like smart objects in Photoshop?
  13. Yes, so hopefully it will be very tight integration ... Hope I'm not dissapointed

    Lens Flare

    Yes I know but its not the same as having the effect in the program to avoid round trips to doifferent apps - Digital Film Tools also has a standalone app as well as the PS plugin

    Lens Flare

    It needs a lens flare effect .... I just tested the last vesion of Light Knoll Factory (v3.2) which still works in Photoshop CC 2019, it doesn't work in Affinity Photo unfortuntely, the only other PS plugin I know off that includes lens fare effects is Digital Fiml Tools, sadly that doesnlt seem to work in Affinity Photo either :(
  16. Its a great tool but using the latest Beta is mightly frustrating that some basics/fundementals are missing ... 1) Please add a basic persepctive tool that works on bitmaps / vectors, in Adobe Fireworks its called the skew tool & works seamlessly on bitmaps or vectors. Altthough I have copies of both Photo and Designer its tedious switching between programs sometimes, maybe because I am long time Adobe Fireworks users and used to the all in one program approach. 2) Please add some text anti-aliasing pre-sets/options, the native feature that was explained to me in Designer is totally alien. 3) Ability to crop the canvas area either mannually with a crop tool or crop to selection ... Its really useful when designing indiviudual graphic elements
  17. Are we getting anti aliasing options/presets for text?
  18. still no text anti-aliasing in the latest beta of designer ... seems a glaring ommission to me??? Any particular reason why this feature doesn't seem to get any attention from the developers?
  19. If you could just integrate these two programs into one seamless app then you would have a perfect replacement for Adobe Fireworks. I'm not a fan of switching from one to the other
  20. Is there a simple perspective/skew tool for vectors/bitmaps ? FW.avi
  21. can you do simple perspective/skew effect on bitmaps, shapes and vectors in Designer 17
  22. Hello, is there a separate beta forum for Designer, Photo & Publisher? As long-time Adobe Fireworks users we're may interested in Designer and what new and where its going, finding this forum a bit confusing as we sometimes dont know which app we are talking abut here.
  23. Please add text anti-aliasing options and presets, like smooth, strong, crisp .....
  24. I was hoping that something had changed since that post ... It is an absolute must to have some better text anti-aliasing options. We couldn't replace Fireworks (still our main go to app) or Photoshop with Affinity Designer/Photo without this feature. I think Affinity have done a great job but as a newbie looking at Designer I think they are adding some more advanced vector features whilst overlooking a few key/fundamental features required in everyday use, especially if you are primary concerned with screen/ui/web design mock-ups or creating design elements/components for screen then its a must. I'm not trying to hammer the Affinity devs, just trying to offer constructive feedback, I'll keep my fingers crossed for a future version.
  25. Are there any text anti-aliasing options/presets; crisp, smooth etc ???
