  1. Definitely the wrong file. But a very strange occurrence. I did a "Save as..." to create the version I uploaded, but it saved the changes to the original! Anyway, here's the correct version of the file... Product Build with recolor.afdesign
  2. @stokerg, thanks for taking a look. For reference I am using In the attached file, the right-hand purple group is the recoloured one. In case you are getting different results, I have a screenshot here to illustrate. I have added the recolor effect to Top, Right and Middle. Left and Bottom are not recolored. If you look at the thumbnails, you can already see the issue with the bounding box, the images are tiny for the recolored elements. There is also a recolor at the higher level, which is a remnant of the original issue, where the recoloring did not apply in the export. It is harder to see this in the export now, because I have applied a new gradient color to every shape individually, so that I can continue working. You could reset the base colours of the shapes if you wanted to see this in action. Finally, here is the merge button in the recolor panel, maybe it is something that works in Photo but should be hidden in Designer? Product Build with recolor.afdesign
  3. I have a number of shapes which I have duplicated, and used the recolor effect to change the second copy. When I export using the Export Persona, with slices (each slice is a shape and some text), the recolor is not applied. It is still the original colour. I have recolored the group, so that all shapes inherit the same new colouring. Although there is a merge button, this does not do anything. I have now moved the recolor to every subgroup of shapes, and the colour has now changed. But as a result, the export dimensions change. Whereas the non-recolored slices export within a box around just the shape, the recolor pushes the boundaries out to the full page (1920x1080). It seems like recolor creates an non-visible composite across the full page to cause the redimensioning. Am I doing something wrong, or have I found a bug or two?
  4. When you start the application, you get a window telling you about the update.
  5. The attached afphoto file has an example of this error. On-screen, it looks fine (initially). But if you export to Png or Jpg (and possibly other formats), you get the error shown in the second attachment. As you can see, the right hand side is corrupted. I have attached with a common font so you can load and test. While doing this, I found that simpler fonts did not have the same issue. The problems can also be seen on screen if you resize or drag the text around. Different errors occur as you resize and move it. I also get a number of errors if I copy this text to another document. The combination of layer effects seem to be incompatible with one another. words test.afphoto
  6. Late to the party but this is achievable. Add a displacement filter. For the displacement image, use a greyscale ruffled cloth, blur it to get a soft effect Add the distortion, just a little goes a long way Load the same displacement image above the flag. Set the blend to hard light and reduce the opacity.
  7. Thanks for the update I'm using the workaround which is easy to implement.
  8. Hi, when moving a layer with a live displacement map, the displacement pixels are left behind. See the attached image as an example, you can see the "ghost" of the displacement map. This is constructed using the tutorial here, look at around 5m40s where the layer is moved and seems to work ok on a Mac.
  9. Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have Designer, but I will find a workaround I'm sure. Regards, Steve
  10. It may not suit your requirement, but you can set Rotation Jitter to "Direction" and 100%. This will follow the direction of your stroke. That is, if you draw a circle, it will rotate 360 degrees as you draw the circle.
  11. Hi, I want to use an artistic Brush to outline my text. Lines work Dashed lines work The next option - "Texture" - doesn't do anything. If I click on "Properties", it opens up the Brush editing panel, but with no brush shown. If I select a Brush then open the panel, still nothing. What am I doing wrong? Regards, Steve
