  1. Yesterday I’ve got a new iPad Pro 12” and today I started Affinity Photo and made a drawing. I saved the file as a psd as I always do. Put it in the Cloud at al the other psd files. So far so good. I searched for an other psd file I made at the older iPad and wanted to download this file in Affinity Photo but all the psd files are “dark” and are not downloadable. Also the file I made today is dark. I’ve checked the preferences and they are the same as at my other, old, iPad 12”. At that old device I can download and use the psd files as usual. Please, please help me!!!!! i’ve just checked at Affinity Designer and also here these psd files are not downloadable. I’ve tryed ProCreate and I can download the psd files as usual.
  2. If Affinity gets the same unlogical translation as in Photoshop.... don’t!!! It is just a matter of time (and watching video’s!) to understand what a tool does. And if you can’t find something, just ask and reed the forum, the are very helpful!
  3. I have an iPad mini 5 and an iPad Pro 12”. At both devices I use the pen (1e gen). At the iPad mini I draw mostly a quick sketch or a part of a drawing when I’m on the road. I put all the files made in Affinity at the iCloud so I can always load them at any device.
  4. Thanks for the video Paul! I never worked with the pen tool and this is very helpful!
  5. Thanks for the quick answer but I forgot to mention that I work with Affinity Photo. This video is made for Designer (vector based), but anyway I figured out how to do this in APhoto. So thanks for the link to the video, it helped a lot.
  6. Hi, I figured out how to get a gradient but this is only in 2 colors? Is there a possibility to get a gradient in rainbow colors? So I can fill a selected area with it.
  7. All the brushes I have are in the Cloud. The only brushes that doesn’t work in AP are the .csh files, they are special for Photoshop. When I want a brush I import it from the Cloud and if I know I don’t need it I delete the brush from the brushtool. Because they are in the Cloud I can use them whenever needed. As long as the brush is an .abr it works fine in AP. I use them at the iPad Pro and on my iMac.
  8. Happy anniversary and thank you for this marvelous programm. Keep up the good work and you’ll make a lot of people happy! Cheers to the next 5 years! Greetings from Amsterdam.
  9. Pffff.... glad to read that more people have issues with AP. I’m working at the iPad Pro with AP 1.7.0135 and I’m very pleased with this programm but today is was a desaster. I wasn’t able to upload my work to the Cloud, the upload wheel kept turning and the only thing I could do was to close AP. After restarting AP I lost the changes I made. After a few try outs at last the file was in the Cloud. At resizing an item the layer freezes while the rectangle is at the new place but the resized item is still at the old place. Hope you understand what I’m trying to say. I’m sure AP will fix this and than I’m happy again with this wonderful programm. Thank you!
  10. Maybe I misunderstand you but all my work I save it by “export” and choose where I want to locate the file. (Mostly in the Cloud.) When I want to change the file I’ll choose at de screen New Document the button “From iCloud” and download it. I never use “save”. Working with Affinity Photo at the iPad Pro 12”.
  11. Made in Affinity Photo at the iPad Pro. Thank you guys for this wonderful programn. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from the Netherlands!
  12. Has there be a certain time to replace it again?
  13. Yes, the two finger tap lift it up, so the layer is at his old place again, but when I want to drag it again to right the place below it will not move.
  14. Beware of it: this solution is for Affinity Designer NOT Affinity Photo!! So I hope de developers will fix it for Photo too!!!
  15. I have the same problem but in Aff. Photo. This tip will not work in Photo, I have to zoom in and tip the object with the pencil, than I can move it.
  16. Hi, I have a little problem and maybe one of you can give me the solution, I work with the iPod Pro, with iOS 12. I work with layers and sometimes I need to replace a layer. I activate the layer and drag it down to the right place. So far so good. But if I drag the layer and accidentely put it at a wrong place (down) and need to put it back (above) I cann’t drag it up. So the layers stucks at the wrong place. Anybody????
  17. Thank you guys, you're amazing helpers!!! I did it.....
  18. Thanks for the video but this is for Affinity Designer, I work with Affinity Photo amd at the iPad Pro. Regards Ashcat
  19. Hi, today I used the heart shape in Affinity Photo at my iPad Pro. When I use the shapes I only get them colored but I like to have a line/contour of the shape. I cann't find it to change the shape. Is this possible? If so, how can I draw a shape with only a line?
  20. Hi there, for a project I do need to draw some Chinese words, in caracters it is. For some reason I cann't find the correct brush. I know it can be done with pressure of the pen but I want the caracters more with 'vector based' lines. Is that possible?
  21. Can I add shapes (.csh) to Affinity Photo for the iPad Pro? I have several shapes in the iCloud and I like to use them in Affinity. Is that possible?
  22. For iPad Pro? How can I download them and add them to AP for the iPad?
  23. Still learning AP at the iPad and I discover a lot! But there are so many questions...... Anyway, sometimes a question solves itself by working and playing and if not, I'll search at this forum or I'll ask you guys. This fractal was a study to see what is possible with AP. I did figured out how to work with rectangle tools and the layers but not how to rotate and resize my layer in % so I did every layer with assessment. (At the iMac it is cntr/alt/cmd + T and set the % of height and rotation.) The result:
  24. Nicely done! About the dot-problem, there is another treath at this forum for that issue but I don't know if there is a solution yet.
  25. Thanks jer for your comment! Sorry about the delay with my answer. About the gradient: is isn't really a gradient but two colors with a blur. I still have to figure out about the gradients. I did some retouching as you can see, the ripple at the sun glow into the water and coloured the tips of the wing. Now I'm satisfied and leave it as it is. So much more to explore!
