    Sullyman reacted to Dan C in Divide Blend Mode, is it happening?   
    Hi Sullyman
    AFAIK there are no immediate plans, but we never say never!

    Hey Everyone,
    Just felt like posting what I was hoping would be included in the previous contest for promotional artworks but I didn't make it. Understandable because the material is a little risque but here it is in all its glory.
    This was created in Affinity Designer with a mix of Vertor shapes used as a mask in the Draw Persona and painting in the Pixel Persona.

    Sullyman reacted to John Rostron in Affinity photo: Divide blending mode   
    You can actually implement the equivalent of divide using Filters > Apply Image. Just tick the Equations box and enter the equations:
    DR=DR/SR
    DG=DG/SG
    DB=DB/SG
    Or you could reverse the two if you wanted:
    DR=SR/DR
    DG=SG/DG
    DB=SB/DB
    However, I can see no easy way to automate this as a macro.

    Sullyman got a reaction from Jase Heeley in Brush Texture Offset   
    I would like to suggest the feature of being able to have a brush setting within the custom brush dialog in the texture setting that would allow for the texture to be offset with each stroke.
    I find over time that lots of textures used for any given brush can have their unique pattern start to appear if the texture is not seamless (and even then you can). I would like to able to have another setting other than "nozzle" or "final" that would allow for random (or custom) rotation or offsetting of the texture applied to the brush, for each stroke laid down. 
    The other issue with the current settings is that without the offsetting of the texture, you can never really "fill in" the texture no matter the level of pressure. This really limits the level of build paintings can receive.

    It would be great if you could add Orange as one of the colors that can be edited in an image. I see other editors have added this color as well. Unless there is a workaround I'd be happy with that too.
    Thanks

    Sullyman got a reaction from Nok in Designer: Magic Wand   
    I would like to suggest the inclusion of the magic wand tool inside of designer. I know that certain tools need to be partitioned within different programs to help sell because of the feature set but I’d like to argue that having a pixel persona inside of Designer truly warrants a magic wand for complex selections. 
    I’m an illustrator by trade and one of the most common and simple functions I need to do is, draw a contour for a shape select it’s outter negative space and use that select as a mask for other layers beneath.
    Currently I have to go multiple steps to achieve this simple task by using the bucket fill to fill a duplicated layer of the original contour illustration layer, find any “holes” in the filled version which can be incredibly tedious if there are any pixels that push the fill from reaching edge when the buckets tolerance doesn’t help. 
    I think the idea of including the wand and some minor settings like expanding or contracting the selection would be hugely convenient for Designer users; not a huge fan of eating up system resources with having to open Photo just to create and adjust what is a simple selection need, or having to go through the effort of double saves and imports on the iPad.
    Thanks for any consideration!

    Sullyman got a reaction from Susanne in Custom Shortcut Panel   
    I'd like to suggest a custom, drag and drop shortcut panel. Something that would allow for users to drop in the tools, adjustments or any other quick menu items that they use that are buried in menus. 
    Design wise: something like the quick menu at the bottom for tool settings but maybe located at the top of the interface. Also, I'd love for the current quick settings menu panel to be able to moved to the top of the interface as well.

    @TonyO This is pretty much what I'm suggesting as well. I don't think it really even needs new space with all the extra space available below the existing tools.

    Sullyman got a reaction from Jörn Reppenhagen in What's your top three pragmatic 1.7 wishlist?   
    Clickable up and down (or left and right) buttons to help set the numeric values for things like strokes. If find myself under or overscrolling sometimes and can eventually waste time. ( it would also be nice to be able to set the fractional range of the buttons in settings, ie: every .25, .5 or so on) maybe even the added function of shift snapping. HSL adjustment numeric input and info output. Right now it's great with the update but disappoints with the arbitrary nature of sliders. You can't be accurate without having a numerical readout of the position and value of the location of the slider nodes. Would love to see something like Photoshop's but with an Affinity twist. I also second bringing back the ability to selecting the HSV version and maybe even HSL or HSB too! and and let's not forget, resetting to default ranges button. HSL Adjustment 6 Hues or 12 Hues setting. Would love to be able to grab the inbetween hues of the major 6 like, orange which is between Red and Yellow (This could also be accomplished with the numeric inputs mentioned about) Persistent Mask editing with Adjustments. Would love to stay within the mask view (alt+click on mask) to apply adjustments to masks instead of being forced out of the mask view with the addition of an adjustment layer or filter.  Distribution function for gradient color nodes. This would be fantastic for more symmetrical gradients either by selecting all of the nodes and distributing them along the range equally or even between selected nodes. Buttons for creating spare channels.  Modifier + Click channel selections, plus addition and subtractions. These are just to name a few quickies

    Sullyman got a reaction from popgunpirates in Affinity Photo - Color Separation   
    Honestly, I was able to separate like I normally would with a little bit getting to know Affinity Photo (and can do it in Designer as well). The only thing missing for me is being able to halftone like in Photoshop and exporting in Bitmap (BMP) format.
    It's completely possible and honestly better in my opinion to separate in layers to avoid channel sep color shifting in the example of using CMYK to grab plates. 
    I would like to see halftone abilities like that of Photoshop in the near future, otherwise being able to control the angles and dot size of our manual Ripping is out the window.

    Sullyman got a reaction from Uncle Mez in Apply Image: Divide Blend Mode Forumla   
    Hello,
    I remember several months back (can't find the thread after searching) having a discussion about the Divide blend mode and the idea of using the Apply Image filter and it's equations being used to simulate the missing blend mode. Does anyone remember or have information on performing this within the Apply Image Equations filter?
    TL:DR I need the RGB Equation of the "Divide" blend mode in equations section of the Apply Image filter.
    Also, I think it would be cool to create a "formula sheet" or document of sorts for interesting equations. 
    Thanks!

    Sullyman reacted to JGD in Colour Separations   
    +1 for colour separation preview here too.
    And since there's a lot of code shared across Affinity apps, please make it available in Affinity Designer as well (maybe also even in Photo? Can you do duotone/indexed colour documents in Photo already? If so, separation preview might make some sense there as well)… While it's not as critical an omission, it can still be very useful in some projects and shouldn't add too much bloat.
    Also, it might allow us to no longer depend on Acrobat Pro; in fact, if we could just reimport printing press .PDF rips in Publisher without doing any colour conversion shenanigans and just check them in there, that would be golden.
