  1. Hi, I know there is Affinity photo, but is there a plan to have something simply for editing photos like Lightroom, Luminar, Capture One, etc? With a DAM, layers, hdr/bracketing, stitching, etc. I’m currently using Luminar 4, but it’s a fake « pay one time », since after a year you don’t receive updates anymore and you need to upgrade... Affinity seems like the ideal place to get an affordable software with free updates. thx
  2. Hi, I’m trying the trial version of Affinity Photo and I don’t find how to create layers? I thought Affinity Photo was non-destructive? currently trying to add lens blur or depth of field blue on a photo, but it doesn’t create mask. thank you for helping.
  3. Is it possible to open Sketch file? I want to download a mockup online, but it only come in .sketch format. Thank you
  4. Hi, I placed an image on my artboard. I cropped it using the crop tool. Everything is ok right? The problem begin when I want to add border radius to my image. To do so, I need to convert to curve. But when I want to crop again to fixe error or resize the image, I can't edit border radius because it's off the image. I tried to rasterize to restart, but rasterize make the image uneditable again. No way to re-convert to curve. Do you have an idea what's wrong? Do you think it's a bug or an improvement could be made regarding that? Thank you
  5. Was off for a bit, but I did some more testing today. I looked at some websites to see what other photographers are doing. http://larsschneider-landscapes.com/ https://karimphotography.com/ https://www.instagram.com/sarashierphotography/ http://www.itsworthashot.com/ Some people have logos and no signature. Some have a different watermark than their logo. It's kind of different for everyone. Since everyone is doing a lot of different thing, I think it's good to assume that my first idea of logo for website/favicon and a signature for watermark (with the font I buy first and in a couple of years with photologo) was good enough. Here are the testing with and without background of the best I created. I was testing to make a darker (#2) logo by copy/paste a layer. After that I was trying some stuffs with name and logo and finally I tested the opacity (last one). I think I will keep one of the logo because I really love the kind of lens and the N going outside. I also think of just taking one of the signature for watermark which I think both look nice with Photography under or on the right side.
  6. Thank you for all your replies. First of all, I decided to keep a colored version for my website header and favicon as well as a black version and white version for watermark and other supports. Secondly, taking my own signature wouldn't be that great, because yes I have good writing skills for texts, but my signature is another story lol. Tomorrow evening I will show you some preview of WIP logo with some of your ideas.
  7. Thank you. Yeah, Photography should be lot more smaller than the name. Good example from photologo I was thinking about something similar, but it's why I was asking for help. Should I have a logo like the blue above with a signature like that inside (I could remove the circle on picture watermark), but It will not be very lisible on a smaller scale like favicon. Or I should have one signature like that as watermark and a logo like above with something else inside. Or again, just a logo like above without signature at all for everything?
  8. Thank you for your feedback. I'm more about landscape, city, travel photography. I also like nature like forest and ocean and I think it works well with this logo. Like I said, I'm not too sure what I want inside… if I want my full name, just a N or a ND. Also I know this font is ugly, I just didn't download/buy the other fonts I want to test. I also want something timeless that will still look great in 10 years.
  9. Hi, I wrote that on Reddit, but got no answer, so I thought about writing that here since there are people working in the industry or know some design stuffs. I'm currently lost about how my personal logo should look like. I'm currently making my website where I will show some photographies and other works. I read in a lot of website that for photography watermark, it's preferable to use a signature logo created by photologo (the only company I know). I'm thinking to buy for one, but I'm not too sure a signature could fit as a website logo, a favicon or even a business card logo. Now here's the big problem I have. Should I get two different logos? One great signature for my photographies and one original logo as my own personal branding? Or I can just make one original logo that I will use anywhere even if for a watermark it looks less professional? Another thing is that I found some awesome script fonts; https://creativemarket.com/SamParrett/351104-Imogen-Agnes https://tomchalky.com/magnite-handwritten-brush-script-font/ Between professional hand made signature vs a font, it's complicated to choose for a watermark signature. I don't want to spend money for nothing. Furthermore, I found this https://www.etsy.com/ca-fr/listing/487613164/cercle-de-logo-logo-initiales-creation?ref=shop_home_active_18 Great logo design for a website, favicon and business card and even as a small watermark on pictures. But it's expensive (and I can make my own based on that design) and like always, I'm also thinking photography… Also, do you know which font she uses in the circle? I don't have etsy account to write to her myself unfortunately. Do you have ideas or suggestions? Is it correct to use two different things or I should use only one kind of logo/signature? EDIT: I created two logos based on what I liked from the paint one I discussed here and the one with circle (link above). 1. Paint effect showing a camera lens. I really love how it cames up. Now the font is not final, but it's just an example to show you that I want a mix script letter and sans-serif. I'm not too sure if I should center a bit more the text inside the circle or not. If I do that, I will need to move the open space and everything will look too straight… right? Should I keep the logo like that? Is it not missing something in the white space above my name? Should I move "PHOTOGRPAHY" to the left of my name or keep it right? Also think it could be a good way to introduce a photologo inside this circle. But as a favicon or website logo, should I just keep initial inside the circle? I'm scare of how it could show up on favicon... 2. A bit of a copy of the link above… Trying to figure what font or what to put in the middle. Personally, I think I prefer the first one.
  10. Hi, I found this on Etsy while looking for inspiration for a logo I will create for myself. https://www.etsy.com/shop/PearlAndPixel I would like to know if you have an idea how the circle was made. I really love the paint effect and the colors blending perfectly together without using a gradient. Thank you
  11. Hi, When changing stroke size or shape, what's the "texture line style"? I clicked on it and nothing happened. Maybe I didn't understand how it works? Thank you
  12. I think it's a bit complicated since you still have to click on each slide to export them separately. Would like to see the options in the dialogue box saying what we want to export: - Whole document - Layer 1 - Layer 2 - Layer 3 - etc.
  13. I'm waiting for this as well. I did some shapes and give them an angle, but after grouping them, there is no way to actually reset the box to remove the angle it did.
  14. Another change lol. I found a great WordPress template on the internet, but since WordPress template always look good until you mess with them, I just took some ideas from it and design something else for my website. Since buttons already make you go to another page, should I remove the navigation bar from the Home Page and only make a fullscreen image? Only keeping navigation bar on other pages but Home? Or I can just have one button to Portfolio and the other one goes in the menu? Not sure where to put the logo/name on this final one. Here is the template I found http://wp.themedemo.co/napoli/
  15. I'm not sure anymore about the way I show the blog section on the desktop version. I think it would be better to have a full frame picture for the portfolio (with works and photo albums), but I think it's weird to have the blog section as big as the about and contact section. What do you think? Maybe the previous idea with a big portfolio and medium blog was better? Just wasn't sure about how much vertical it was for the blog part. EDIT: What do you think about something like that? I want to see a bigger image for portfolio which can change easily or having a possible looping video here. I decided to reduce About and Contact section to a simple button. What do you think? Not sure about button color. Should it be darker? Black with white text? Smaller text?
  16. Thank you for feedback ----- EDIT: Here is the mobile version mockup.
  17. Hi, Following my other topic about my logo here, I decided to make a mockup for my future website. Bellow are all steps that I did to have the final idea of my website. My website will be more about some travel blog and photography, but also other works I'm happy to share. I first started with the idea of making a single-page website, but I wasn't happy with the design since it was a bit hard to integrate all the section I wanted seamlessly. Everything had a different design and wasn't happy with that. After that, I tried to go with the same kind of idea, but separating the different section in block like a menu. The problem is that I though the full screen image was a bit useless since there was already images bellow. So I decided to remove that and only keep the essential. Wasn't happy either, because I was taking too much space and wasn't really mobile friendly after all. It was just too long to scroll into different section. I bring back my idea of full screen image and was thinking of a button showing a menu. Was a nice idea since when hovered, you was able to see another image. After that, I thought that maybe all this was a bit useless and was making navigation a bit more harder for everyone. Finally, I took this "menu" idea and just decided to make it in one beautiful page. So that is my final homepage! What do you think? Do you think I should move the copyright and social icon near the page border a bit more? Was thinking about that, because the actual logo and menu are closer to border.
  18. I hope it's coming soon. I'm trying to take this image which is a SVG : https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.0.8/svgs/brands/facebook-f.svg But it has a border around and there is no way to remove that and only take the vector. Thank you
  19. Hi, By using the Text Frame Tool, it is possible to resize the box containing the text we have, but when using the Artistic Text tool it doesn't work. I understand why, but would be nice that even if you use the artistic tool first, you would be able to select the frame tool to edit the size of the box without resizing the actual text. Would be much more helpful for quicker work. Thank you
  20. Hi, I know that it is possible to create slice, but I think exporting different layers and groups separately could help a lot of people when working on multiple things on one artboard. I know it's possible in Illustrator, so waiting for it availability on Designer Thank you
  21. Hi, I did a rotation to an object/group, but is there a way to reset the selection box to remove the rotation from the selection box? I know there is an actual button for this, but it does reset only if you select it, but if you unselect and reselect your object, it will be rotated like before.
  22. Hi, Is it possible to select multiple guides and move them at the same time? It's a very good feature from Illustrator and I have difficulty doing this in Designer. Thank you
