  1. Ok, that works perfectly, thanks again! I really appreciate it. I need to spend some quality time looking at the tens of thousands of YT's out there.
  2. I don't understand this part. Till they turn blue? What studio?
  3. Also, another simple question, how do I pin these floating windows to the program?
  4. That's amazing!! I can't believe it was going to be that easy. Thank you. How do I ensure it's a Pixel layer? And, what if it's on a black background? Thanks so much!
  5. Hi, now I know I'm less than a rank amateur. I've had this program on my iMac for a while now and since I'm so busy I don't have time to properly learn it. I'd have to give up most of the things in life in order to spend every waking minute to learning this cool program. So I need this Santa image but with all the white space removed. I watched a YouTube and followed along and got it only partly right as there were parts missing. He said to use the selection brush tool and despite many times at adding and subtracting I still only get a partial image with the white removed. Is there another way? A friend said I could use a mask? No idea how to do that either. Can anyone tell me what I need to do or direct me to a good YT on what I need to do? Here's the image. Thanks for any help.
  6. Thanks Dex! Bookmarked, upvoted, and subscribed! Thanks so much!
  7. Can I get this as a stand-alone video so I can stop it and rewind it?
  8. WOW! You guys are true master at this! I wish this video was a little slower but it's awesome. I never in a million years expected this kind of excellent help and I REALLY appreciate it! Thank you so much.
  9. Brilliant! Thank you! And how did you cut out one face like that? And when I modify the original and save it, will it still be .png? Thank you for your excellent help!
  10. Ok, I'm finally home and have a chance to upload what 'm talking about. The first capture shows all the "parts" I can use to create a character in Comic Strip Factory. I run CSF, select one part and export it as a .png file. Then I import it into Affinity Photo by dropping it on the icon on my iMac. It opens and this is the hideous result. Now, these are "masked" files so I need to modify the original, not layers and then it has to be exported as a .png file. I have no idea how I did this with the paint bucket as I was fumbling around and accidentally colorized it. Here's a CSF file that is already colorized, it's in the new CSF. I would like to somehow match his skin color for Sasha and other characters. Like with an eyedropper thing maybe? I'm so new at this so I apologize in advance if I'm confusing. Thanks so much, Jack
  11. Thank you all! I will put something together to show you what I'm trying to do later today as I have to go out right now. But I very much appreciate your help!
  12. I'm working with Comic Strip Factory to make comics and despite it having several characters to work with there's not enough for me. So the creator of it (David Durkee) allows users to use the original black and white characters. They're on a sheet full of various heads, torsos, arms, legs, you get the idea. But they're all black and white. David told me how to select one body part, say a head, and export it as a .png file and then drop it into Affinity Photo which I own. So I did this. Now, I know for me this is a very steep learning process and I have so little time in real life to learn it. What I'm trying to do is copy in these images or parts one at a time and colorize them and re-export them so I can use them in new comics. But how do I do this? I tried after much hit and miss with the paint bucket and colorized a face but it was like I said, a hit or miss thing because I really don't know this program like all of you people. Is there an easy way to do this and is there a tutorial on how to do this? I can post files for examples to show you what I'm trying to accomplish. Many thanks. Jack

    How do I make a time warp effect?

    Thanks James. I really appreciate your help. It may not be the greatest comic but I like making them.
