  1. How would you manually change a shape to a 'curve'?
  2. Thats the tool I normally use to alter shapes, along with the Mesh Warp tool. But this was different, it showed all 8 'Move Tool' nodes as individually movable, the Perspective Tool only shows four nodes, each in the corner.
  3. Affinity Photo - I was using my move tool to make pasted item larger on an existing document when all the lugs (nodes) had independent movement, the tool shown when moving the mouse was the white arrowhead Node Tool. I tried to replicate this, pressing various keys while choosing the Node Tool/Move Tool with no result, can anyone tell me how to achieve this desirable element.

    feathering

    Thanks, I did get a feathering by using gaussian blur which is fine for this job, but I will need to be more precise on others, so I will check out your link.
  5. Can anyone give me a video link as how to use 'feathering' in Affinity Photo, my Adobe Photoshop knowledge does not seem to apply to the AP version. The Affinity Tutorial site came back with 'no results' when I did a search.
  6. Thanks everyone, I obviously did not explore this FX as much as I thought I had, I will investigate the possiblilities more thoroughly.
  7. AP Emboss FX is always soft and only sharpens at a thin width, I have being trying different combinations with sliders etc. and cannot get a hard edged bevel at the size In want. I have attached a Photoshop jpg file 'Video intro image bevel 2018' with a clean hard edge and an 'Affinity Photo jpg file 'Video intro image bevel 2019' with a very soft edge, what am I doing wrong?
  8. AF Photo Emboss FX is always soft and only sharpens at a thin level, I have being trying different combinations and cannot get a hard edged bevel at the size In want. I have attached a Photoshop jpg file 'Video intro image bevel 2018' with a hard edge and a Affinity Photo ope file with a ver y soft edge, what am I doing wrong?

  9. While I am here is there any photo artistic filters available to AP, like you get in Photoshop?
  10. Thanks MEB, should have asked ages ago.
  11. I have always wondered why when I crop an image I get 'overspill', noticeable when I want to use the Perspective tool etc. Its always been irritating to have to work outside the visual image perimeter, how do I make it just the size of the image after cropping. See attached image.
  12. This file is sensitive only for me, it will sit on my computer (plus backups) and I just want to be able to password protect it. I can find a third party work-around, I just wondered if it was available at the point of saving in AP. Thanks for the replies.
  13. I could use the 'Get Info' but have not always found this unsatisfactory, I wanted to set a password on the file to prevent others from viewing the file.
  14. Is it possible to apply a password to a AP file, I looked around the program but could find nothing, am I missing something?
  15. The master Affinity document is a .afphoto image and is 420 x 510 px with multiple layers, before exporting (to a jpg) I flattened the .afphoto image to a single layer and in the Export window I reduced the pixels to 70x85px - result, image is still tiny when imported to Freeway web program. I tried ticking the 'Don't export layers hidden by Export Persona' when exporting the image - result, image is still tiny when imported to Freeway web program. If I change the .afphoto image from 420 x 510px @300ppi to 70 x 85px @72ppi before Exporting it the resulting jpg image fits perfectly into my Freeway web program, but the image is not as good as the Photoshop Save for the Web version. I have to move on this site, so reluctantly I will use Photoshop Save for the Web, because it works.
